Lucy is either going to grow up to be an ugly bitch or the hottest girl in high school.>>123459997
Charlie Brown has always been Lucy’s true best friend and emotional anchor. She’d fervently deny it if you told her that, though. A lot of the treatment she has towards Charlie is rooted in projection, because she sees a lot of herself in him, including her own personal issues and insecurities. I interpret the strip as an ongoing narrative, and therefore I think the crush Lucy clearly had on him in the 1950s-early 60s stuck with her, at least implicitly.
Charlie and Lucy are basically a ticking time bomb for one time passionate hate-sex at some point as teens, but nothing else beyond that desu. Chuck belongs to Peppermint Patty.
