I mean, isn't it?
Correct me if I'm wrong but Mike is the only one Lucy outright avoids, the second worst relationship she has with anybody is with Paulo, but she's just sort rejecting him so it's not really as over the top as with Mike.
It's Mike who went full blown "you're a parasite" on her and no one else, the only reason she's avoiding the group is because of him, if it had been real life (or realistically written, at least) I couldn't imagine any reason for Lucy to do any of that crap.
Become friends with augustus, fine, whatever, but her whole "lol it's going to piss everyone off and they'll hate me I'm so smug" can't possibly come from any place other than attention seeking.
If she actually didn't want to deal with anyone in the group she'd just ignore them.
Speaking of "if this was a good webcomic" Daisy would have snapped because of Mike's comment about Lucy hanging out with Augustus as it implied shit about her, instead she's going to be objectively right because Mike went from being a cool, tall, chill, beautiful anime boy to being a short, pathetic little gremlin cat that isn't even similar to the collective crush of every girl in school he used to be.
I'm also kind of tired of the "event->conflict->MAD SCREAMING->apology / the recipient of the screaming being shown to be objectively wrong-> return to status quo" format Taeshi got married to as of late.
Fuck, I used to be all about this webcomic.
And then Taeshi decided to bury her past as an emotional weeaboo by avoiding and retconning everything that made this comic GOOD, aka the unfiltered teenage highschool drama.
