My initial reaction was, "oh for fuck's sake she really has stopped caring"

I read the thing below it though and apparently she enjoyed writing this, so maybe it'll be decent? She probably rushed the last chapter because she was just tired of writing Paulo and wanted to get past it, but there might not be that problem here. Kind of like the Ships Ahoy strips or some of the BCI comics, the more lighthearted stuff can be somewhat enjoyable. Plus somebody posted last thread that Vera typically only has enough effort to do either background, decent character art, or writing, but never more than one or two at a time. Well, the art just became a lot easier to do, so maybe she's putting more into the writing. I dunno, it'll probably be shit but I'm willing to be optimistic. The last chapter was shit because it was a massive mishandling of an important plot point but this chapter doesn't seem as consequential, so it'll probably be harder to fuck up if nothing else.

>In the end, we’ll find a way to integrate it into Volume Six and the larger archive, but for now, take it as a experimental chapter from the world of BCB before Lucy.

Lucy hasn't even been back for two chapters and Taeshi is already tired of writing her. That parasite really does ruin everything.

>Did Mike do anything wrong?
The only thing he really did wrong was going complete batshit on Lucy, he went a little too far. Kind of understandable though. I really like mike though, the most reasonable character by far imo.
>Is Augustus an interesting character?
Yeah, I mean he's not incredibly unique or anything but I'm interested to see where his plot line goes and he doesn't deserve to suffer.

>Were the Polo a Gay chapters really that bad?

Not really, they just seemed a little out of nowhere and then never really brought up again. The scene with David was cute.

>What do you think of Paulo as a character, and as a person?

He's fine. He's an interesting character because he kind of represents all the "figuring yourself out stage" of being a teenager. His personality can be annoying at times but he seems to be a good person who cares about his friends. I don't understand why he likes Lucy so much though.

At this point I want anything but the excuse of a story she is doing in the main comic. Hell, I even want to believe she is doing this due to the huge backlash she got from the whole disgrace of the last chapter. Not even the nazi of her husband couldn't hide the truth this time.

nah, he fucked up the whole thing. He only remembered her sweet side only after he thought he lost her forever. From Acapulco onwards he completely, unjustifuingly demonized her, blinded by his relationship with Sandy, and his paranoia that everyone was out to destroy it.

>unjustifuingly
Not really. Lucy is a terrible person and a terrible friend. Acapulco confirmed Mike suspicions that Lucy's clinging was too much and that it was only that: clinging. The way she went for Paulo when she thought he was dead closed the deal. He realized she didn't saw him as Mike but just as her safe place.
Why should he continue to be friends with someone like that? Especially someone that tries to ruin his relationship with Sandy, which was going just fine.
And when she doesn't get what she wants she clings to Paulo. Again. Destroying every possibility of Mike seeing her confession as something true

>his paranoia that everyone was out to destroy it.
It isn't paranoia if it's true.
Say what you want about Mike x Sandy but people criticize his relationship all the time and it isn't because they are worried about Mike.

Maybe he shouldn't be proving them right then.

But alas, after last chapter anyone sane would question the plot, story and characterization from now on.

If bag is still watching these threads he should have noticed two things recently:

1. Everyone especially hated the clumsy conclusion of the last chapter, and the rest of it in general.

2. Everyone loved the goofy vampire Mike gag comic.

Is it too much to ask that they learned something from this?
>>
>>93943187
Proving them right how?
This is like having someone criticize a 10 year marriage that was happy for 9 years then fell apart during the last year and say he was right since the beggining.
Relationships come and go and change. Mike's friends were never right and never criticized for the reasons that were there.

True. All the four of them deserve it.
>>93943144
I never said Lucy wasn't fucked up either. But Mike's judgement was affected by a strong confirmation bias against Lucy's every action. When Lucy "clinged" to Paulo at Acapulco was because she was phisically sick from thinking Mike was dead, and she literally had to be carried because she couldn't even stand.
Also looks like he conveniently forgot when they almost both drowned because of him. Lucy tried to selflessly save him, almost drowning herself in the process. She didn't go cling to anyone else at that time
She saw Mike both as a friend AND as a safe anchor for her.

Mike was right to call Lucy out for how she had been acting but the way he approached the conversation was wrong. He totally overreacted and snapped and then he avoided her while she was left to suffer alone. He knows he hurt her deeply and - in Lucy's world - he waited too long to try to make things better.

The real truth is somewhere in the middle. We can't act like Lucy had no hand in pushing Mike's patience to it's limits.

The entire point of the Acapulco chapters was that Lucy's tsundere behavior was toxic, and that she can't have her cake and eat it, too (or in her case, she can't ball up her only redeeming qualities in a shell where no one can see them, and expect Mike to still give a shit about her).

You can say Mike had terrible timing, or spent too much time bottling up it and took his ranting too far, but his feelings were definitely justified given he could only judge by what he sees.

There's no confirmation bias when Lucy literally tried to hook up with Paulo soon after. It doesn't matter what her reasons were, Mike doesn't have to accept her bullshit.

She got angry because he acted like nothing happened, and she knew he knew how she felt about it. . She even tried to stop her "friends" from giving shit to Mike.
She didn't get angry just because he rejected her feelings, she screamed at him (see >>93943548) because, when explaining things to his friends, told them that the whole business wasn't that big of a deal.

Kind of autistic; maybe Mike just didn't want to air his awkward shit w/Lucy in front of everyone. Why did she?

He was always irritated about how people didn't take his thing with Sandy seriously so I can't blame him for not wanting to talk about Lucy confessing and rejecting her. He got a lot of bullshit for that, even from voice-of-wisdom Tess.

If the comic properly explores his character, then yea it could be really good. Dude has a lot of baggage but honestly tries his best to be a good person. I'll be looking forward to when the comic finally breaks him.

I liked seeing him miserable at Daisy's party in the spoiler page, but it makes me worry that his optimism finally fading will happen too quickly to have the proper impact. This intermission chapter is oddly encouraging, because we might get to see how Mike's mental state has been affected my all the shit he's put up with. One nightmare sequence and a few scenes of him yelling aren't a believable transition, hopefully this chapter will shed some more light on what's going on in his head and make his descent more believable.

Well, this page is a bit of nothing, isn't it.

Hey, remember that anon from two threads ago who tossed around the idea of rewriting BCB?

I'm actually doing it. And I'm halfway done with the hypothetical first episode.

https://document.li/YOFY/

I wanted to have something to show you guys, so here's your first look. And remember, I'm fully open to ideas. Do you like how it's going? Are the characters good and engaging? Is it significantly different from the original comic? Any ideas for future episodes?

Again, I wanna stress that this won't be a regular thing, just a side gig. But I've been thinking about doing this for a while.

They all wear clothes in this universe, 'tis different. Also, don't worry about the pets. I got plans for them.

If it's true that this is the first of a whole stack of off-topic pages coming up, then this smells like some BCI thing they were working on and was about to put online, but due to even the normally adhd reader with shit sense of value called the last few pages for unbelievable crap, then I'm willing to bet my ass that this is nothing more than distraction tactics in the hopes of they can get away with those atrocious pages instead of doing the sensible solution and redact & edit them so it actually makes sense.

But that probably goes against the master plan, even though it'll also rendered shit by relying on such drivel to progress in the first place.

So remember to tell the normies to never forgive nor forget.
>>
>>93946287
I doubt they were going to publish a 32-pages BCI, though. Maybe it started as a BCI, but then she thought of something better for a BCI chapter and rebooted it as a filler chapter

A 32-pages BCI would be too long. And we know she had it ready for a while (or at least had the storyboard wholly done), or she wouldn't know that the pages were exactly 32. It wouldn't be a decision she made over the weekend

You're probably right. I'm willing to hope that this chapter will be okay but this first page isn't drawing me in all that much. I hope every character's day doesn't start like this.

I'm on page seven of the script right now. Call me a dumbass but I was actually fooled into believing you'd made Lucy into an actual magical girl for a while. Pretty interesting way to start out. Does this mean that Lucy is a weaboo now, though? It was her dream.

>>93947433
Yeah, Lucy's now explicitly the kind of girl who browses Deviantart and watches fansubs on old-timey YouTube. I went with this because I wanted to flesh out her insular nature a lot more. Plus it makes since if she's a stereotypical tsundere that she would partially emulate her chinese cartoons as a way to connect to people.
>>
>>93944536
>How do we fix Lucy?
Apathetic Mike calmly tearing apart all her retarded notions while brushing off her excuses and attempts to elicit an emotional response. He'd probably have to follow up with a prediction that she'll get all mopey and self-pitying just so that she has motivation to prove him wrong.

Expanding on this since I just finished the script.

The last names feel a bit awkward but it could just be because I'm not used to them having last names. Reynolds feels like an odd choice but I'm not sure what I'd replace it with. It's a fairly minor complaint anyway.

I'd change Mike's line after Lucy kicks him to just "I'll walk it off." The full line doesn't seem like something he'd say to me. If he's being sarcastic, then that's odd because he's not really a sarcastic person. Otherwise he doesn't seem like the sort to tell people he's in pain. I'm not sure what characterization you're going for though.

>>93947544
That explains the music related stuff, was gonna ask about that.

I like what you've got so far, it'd be great if you could write more. It'd make it easier to tell where you're taking the characters, too.

Not sure I like her being a big nerd like that, but I think I'm just sick of reading stories by nerds about nerds.

In the original version she's genuinely deranged. She was a flop on the social scene at the first day of preschool and just let that stick for the rest of her life, heedless of acquiring a group of friends who adore her.

Really hoping it's 5 pages per week because I can't be dealing with a two and three-fourths month intermission. A month and a half would be more tolerable, at least. The text below today's page said that she had to keep every character's section five pages long, maybe it's to give us one character every week? I'm grasping at straws but fuck would it be that hard to make five pages per week of this art?

>>93949049
>Not sure I like her being a big nerd like that
All the characters are already nerds in the base comic, honestly. Remember the con chapter? Lucy probably would've gone if she and Mike hadn't fallen out, and she played vidya with him all the time early on. I get what you mean, though.

>I'm just sick of reading stories by nerds about nerds.
I feel this. I can accept it as part of her character as long as the references to other media are kept to a minimum, though. Note to the author, define a character by their behavior and interactions with others, not by their interests. You've done fairly well so far but I'm just saying, don't end up with Michelle from Spider-Man Homecoming as the main character.

Okay, seriously, what the hell are they doing? Is this supposed to be them cramming in all the character development they should have been accomplishing in the last few years, or are they just trying to buy time to redo upcoming chapters because they realized even the normie fans weren't buying into this crock? I'm leaning toward the latter since Taeshi posted that spoiler page.
>>

The real test will be if the spoiler page ever actually appears.

Of course, they might be sensitive to that vulnerability and make sure it's in there, even if they were to ditch everything else. Bag certainly is attentive to appearances.

It looks like legit lined paper, though. It even has the pen markings of the opposide side of the paper, and you can see the slightly off line transparing from the other side, too.

>>93952322
Fair enough; I don't know how she does these things. I assumed she'd be doing everything digitally.

But then ACTUALLY uploading 11 weeks of lined-paper stuff is just as bad. Like, a week of "here's sum doodles lol" is cute, but months of it? Sloppy operations.

Well, we've already seem to have smelled out that this is a stopgap so I suppose we know why she's doing it. It's a better sign than the comic careering further off the rails.

I liked it more when the comic was a slice of life with very gradual increments of drama.

My favorite part of the comic, oddly enough was the time in between Lucy's suicide and Lucy's return

Everything was fucking hunky-dory, and we had a very understated few months about Paulo being gay, almost being un-gay with doggirlface, and Daisy buying condoms.

I don't like it when page after page is wham after wham of tension.

What's everyone expecting from the next chapter in 3 months?

Taeshi's gonna hamfistedly put a flashback to where Lucy has been during Daisy's party, isn't she
>>
>>93955972
I think Tae is trying to avoid Lucy for a while after the blunder that was last chapter. I'm not sure how much a flashback would really show anyway, since Lucy hasn't changed all that much.

Still wrapping my head around this intermission lasting three goddamn months. The pacing issues in this comic are spanning whole chapters now.
>>
>>93956089
What would actually be the bigger blunder?

A) This is exactly what it looks like: Pumping out a distraction for the angry masses

or

B) This intermission was actually part of Taeshi's (poorly thought out) plan all along and she thought it would be a cute throwback with the line paper and shit?

Random comments:
-The bit about a hearing aid is kind of weird; everyone except Paulo seems comfortably well-off so I don't know why Lucy's mom would worry about money for something like that. Moreover, if Lucy is outright deaf in her left ear I don't think a hearing aid would do any good.

More important than any of that, are you intending to do something with the whole deaf ear thing? Taeshi never has. It's always been a meaninglessly exacting detail included because real whitecoat blue-eyed cats have that problem.

-You have Sam bantering just a bit. From what little we see of him in the actual series he seems pretty humorless.

-Personal autism here but I always thought that only Paulo should call Lucy "Luce"...although he only ever does it a couple of times in the series.
