Lucy by Geomancing Lucy by Geomancing
Over the weekend, I read through the archives of a webcomic called Bittersweet Candy Bowl. If I had to describe it in a short phrase, I would probably say something along the lines of 'emotionally damaged teenagers try to cope'. There are moments of slapstick and humor, but a lot of the storylines involve a group of young people try to work out their emotions, relationships, and personal problems.

The character I felt the most for is Lucy. She is definitely one of the more fragile characters, emotionally, and the one I most ... pity? Root for? Wince away from? As of right now, her character arc is complete, but I hope that we do see more of her, hopefully after she becomes healthier and more in control. She's been the character who most needs help from the others; I'd like to see her return the favor someday.

Her eventual return is going to be interesting, to be sure. I'm betting five bucks on Mike's reaction being either to run like hell in sheer reactionary panic or to have a nervous breakdown out of guilt. God only knows how Lucy herself acts towards Mike depending on what lessons she's decided to take away from everything while away.

And while we're figuring out short descriptors of such a long-running comic, I must profess a fondness of TvTropes laconic description: Arthur but in High School with loads of angst.

Oh, also this is one of the absolute BEST fan pictures the comic has ever gotten. Really stellar stuff.

You've captured her fragility quite nicely here. Love the blank stare.

Well, considering how many other great things I've been enlightened to after having artists I follow make fanart for them, I suppose I'll have to give this comic a look.
