* Wayching Volume One becomes HarsherInHindsight as the story progresses in the next volumes thanks to CerebusSyndrome kicking in. Watching Mike and Lucy playing together or engaging in slapstick humor, watching Paulo and Abbey getting into arguments after meeting in high school, watching Daisy and Paulo's [[UnrequitedLoveInterest initial pursuit for Mike and Lucy's hearts]]... It's not so funny anymore when we see what happens in the following volumes.

Added DiffLines:

* The "Another Path" chapter is pretty much tear jerking. It's a what-if scenario of what would have happened if Paulo had a MomentOfWeakness to give Lucy SexForSolace over her heartbreak. It's quite heartbreaking to see Lucy tear up over Paulo taking her virginity and panicking over the possibility of being pregnant. Likewise, Paulo actually breaks down in tears when he tells his dad (even if it's PlayedForLaughs) and later as he takes care of Lucy during the time it takes to get the results of her pregnancy test, he bitterly cries in jealously over Mike being Lucy's support, admitting his anger at him for not wanting to be there for her while he wants to be there for her. By the end of the chapter, Paulo and Lucy are an OfficialCouple and graduating, with Lucy declaring her love for him...only for the chapter to be revealed to be AllJustADream.

* "Trapped," where Augustus has his origins with Alejandro told, and we run into a girl named Melanie... who is in an abusive relationship with Alejandro. [[spoiler: On page 25, she reveals that the scholarship she wants is specifically to get away from Alejandro, and her breakdown over it is ''painful'' to watch.]]

* "Small Fry", despite being more of a light-hearted romp through Paulo's 16th birthday, and his foray into getting a part-time job and learning how to drive, shows us the inevitability of Rachel and Paulo's 'friends-with-benefits' relationship, especially with Paulo feeling guilty about Rachel's genuine attraction to him while he's still hoping that Lucy will one day return...

* There have been other tearjerkers besides the one above. How about some of Daisy's {{Corrupt the Cutie}} moments during the Awakening arc? In Rising Temperature, being humiliated by [[http://www.bittersweetcandybowl.com/c39/p3.html Katie]] and two in this [[http://www.bittersweetcandybowl.com/c39/p10.html page]]? [[spoiler: Mike feels guilty for ignoring Daisy and Daisy is all alone, even though she does have her friends.]]

* "Just Beautifu" is relatively lighthearted...until [[spoiler:Lily chases off Mike, who decided to try apologizing to Lucy for his [[HeWhoFightsMonsters recent]] [[TookALevelInJerkass behavior]].]] Not really that sad, since [[spoiler:he was only doing so on Sandy's advice]], but then [[spoiler:She and Lucy have to tell Yashy the truth behind Mike's [[LongDistanceRelationship status]].]] Jesus!

Probably the only webcomic that will make you cry for good reasons.

* Anytime [[{{Tsundere}} Lucy]] loses [[DoggedNiceGuy Mike]], she has a heartrending emotional breakdown. It really shows just how attached she's become to him over the years. However, the single saddest moment happens in [[http://taeshilh.deviantart.com/art/Chapter-51-A-Distance-Apart-152537276?q=gallery%3Ataeshilh%2F390207&qo=6 Chapter 51 "A Distance Apart"]] when [[spoiler: Lucy finally admits her love for him, and he rejects her.]]
