You’ll learn, Rachel.
If you didn’t notice already, all the pages are blue! We originally weren’t sure which colour to use, but we did want to keep it in the same style as the chapters to follow (which are halftoney before eventually going full-colour.)
Huh… I see where this is going. I guess this chapter makes sense now.
Nonameghost September 19, 2012, 12:45 AM EST.
Ahh, well that explains how they set their sights on Paulo.
nalem September 19, 2012, 12:47 AM EST.
so this is before jazz came in im correct?
Crimson September 19, 2012, 12:48 AM EST.
Aww come on Daisy, talking about davey behind his back? That’s not nice. Maybe they’d like him.
Ventus September 19, 2012, 12:50 AM EST.
Wow what’s with all the haters? Anything new will be in the book, not here. I for one love where this is going. Now we finally have some insight into exactly what was going on. Anyone who doesn’t like it should keep there comments to themselves. No one needs to hear about your butt-hurt guys.
Sammy September 19, 2012, 12:51 AM EST.
Why is Jessica asking about David? Maybe I misunderstood I am exhausted after all. Also it’s been a long time since I saw a chocolate milk fight, the last time was in middle school… don’t ask cause i’m not telling .
@Taeshi: Congrats on reaching $30000 you proved just how successful this comic really is and just how much everybody loves it. Hope you and Souppy feel proud .
Edit: Haters gonna hate doesn’t mean you have to give them the time of day. In other words don’t waste time on haters(by haters i mean people who say mean or hurtful things for the sake of saying them or to upset you). Example: One day i’m sad and my sister says “cry me a river and then go drown in it” my response was to go to the kitchen and go grab a bite to eat(I ignored her ).
supertails19 September 19, 2012, 1:00 AM EST.
Does Daisy have wings?
Stevum September 19, 2012, 1:02 AM EST.
Hahaha! UHHH, David’s not…yeah, he’s just the one fish that won’t sell. lol, to think they were even considering him! Don’t they know? Flower girl already has him hooked!
Ratched September 19, 2012, 1:03 AM EST.
That wasn’t nice, Daisy.
Jacob_Fap September 19, 2012, 1:09 AM EST.
I wonder why we’re getting such few comments now. It troubles me.
paulosawesome September 19, 2012, 1:11 AM EST.
at $30,000, you plan on making another batch of candy?
i’ve been curious about that candy for awhile now…
damn it, if only i wasn’t in a tight spot this year… do you guys accept souls as payment?
i could probably offer a few of those up… it’s not like hell will miss a handful of screams.
if you want a pure soul, i could probably destroy an innocent life for you.
by the way, paulo sucks, worst character in this entire comic.
Thanatos September 19, 2012, 1:15 AM EST.
Spin the wheel for a chance at THIRTY THOOOOUUUUSAND DOLLARS!(I do realize that’s the wrong number, but I can’t find anything else.)
I wish I had contributed, but I don’t have a PayPal or anything like that, so…
Neospector September 19, 2012, 1:16 AM EST.
Critique not desired
I don’t like the comments turning into a ****** pile where upset whiny people harass other upset whiny people. I kind of feel like deleting those comments is the best preventative measure.
Re: the weird wave of criticism about Daisy, uhhhh. I guess you people never noticed when Helping Hands or The Burden of Parenthood were posted, and didn’t look at Daisy’s body when it was portrayed in Pillow Talk, or paid attention even as far back as Love My Way. Daisy’s growing up to be bulkier, and that’s always been the case.
Re: the predictable criticism about posting a summary chapter, I’m not sure what I can tell people besides “get a BCI account”. If reading a summary comic bores you (even if it’s a summary comic that’s intended to be fun and interesting for long-time readers) you can sign up for $39, read a page a day from the members’ library until “Starting Over” is over, and you’ll still have lots more in there to read.
And if you don’t want to spend $39 on that, well, uh, maybe we don’t really owe you much more than we’re already delivering? I’m sorry if it upsets you. But it’s a good chapter, and the story will continue on once it is finished. 3 days a week, never on hiatus, without fail. As we’ve done for nearly 3 years straight. I hope that’s enough to satisfy most people.
SuitCase September 19, 2012, 1:25 AM EST.
Yeah Jess, Paulo DOES have bad taste… I mean he F****ed you didn’t he
Matt September 19, 2012, 1:29 AM EST.
I wish i could contribute. But i don’t have a paypal. I guess my 30$ can just sit there on the stand….all lonesome saying “Speeeend meeee on something….”
HomelessBrozo September 19, 2012, 1:31 AM EST.
Anyone who complains about Daisy has got to be a brain dead ****.
Snoozan September 19, 2012, 1:32 AM EST.
C’mon Daze, David’s not all that bad
(at the least he’s not a total emotional trainwreck like everyone else HEYOOO)
synthyK September 19, 2012, 1:37 AM EST.
Some people need to learn that a comic doesn’t just finish after 2 days or something -.-
I would have gone through all this kickstarter and BCB account stuff but unfortunately I can’t since I’m unable to pay online DX
Skorzney September 19, 2012, 1:40 AM EST.
David is the best character in the web comic. How dare she insult him!
HomelessBrozo September 19, 2012, 1:41 AM EST.
“Just because you weren’t there last year doesn’t mean we’ve forgotten her.” ‘Atta girl. Never forgive, never forget. This is pretty much an exact depiction of high school, down to the table full of derps (that was where I sat).
PauloXRachel… could this be my favorite pseudo-couple now? No, can’t be… oh MikeXSandy, has your time passed, even though this chapter takes place in the past?
Shiloh September 19, 2012, 1:42 AM EST.
I have the memory of an untrained goldfish, so I’m absolutely fine with a summary chapter.
Also, HOLY **** THIRTY-****ING-THOUSAND DOLLARS?
That’s a lot of dollars. At least I feel smug that me, Danny Boy and the Nerds contributed around 1.5k. Very smug indeed.
Curtisimo - no, not joking.
Curtisimo September 19, 2012, 1:45 AM EST.
LOL at Suitcase trying to be sophisticated. Deleting comments is childish, don’t you think? Why’d you make a “comment section” then? Not to hear the opinion of the commenter of course! It’s only if we write pleasing things. If you don’t like what I say, well. Too bad?
EDIT: Critique not desired?! Well what the **** are you supposed to put down here then!
SkyOfMyOwnLight September 19, 2012, 1:50 AM EST.
Ah well this is interesting. It’s all Daisy’s fault!!
Cyph September 19, 2012, 2:12 AM EST.
“****** pile.” Very mature.
Eddie Kit September 19, 2012, 2:16 AM EST.
I couldn’t have said it better myself
Eddie Kit September 19, 2012, 2:18 AM EST.
Rage at your fans. Yes. That’ll get them to put money in your pocket.
Eddie Kit September 19, 2012, 2:20 AM EST.
@SkyOfMyOwnLight: The way i see it posting something negative is childish in itself and by deleting said comments suitcase can prevent people from going completely off topic and annoying other readers. By critique not desired i guess he means he is not going to deal with people who constantly whine about a page getting uploaded late instead of just critiquing the artwork like everyone else. If you want to talk about childish then let’s talk about David having a chocolate milk fight with Paulo and who you think is going to be the winner of the fight(My guess David cause he is a CHOCOLATE LABRADOR, go and read about it in the about section ). Sorry if anything I said came across as rude to anyone but it is expected when you deprive your body of sleep which I will now get good night.
@Eddie Kit: Nah I don’t think that was suitcase raging, I think that was suitcase being honest. Some comments have been a little rude lately and that’s putting it mildly.
supertails19 September 19, 2012, 2:21 AM EST.
Woo! Candy goal reached!
Also, love the way Daisy warns them of David’s weirdness.
Coyote September 19, 2012, 2:24 AM EST.
While you do have a valid point, we cannot see to what level of dumb-arseary the comments in question had. There are some things that deserve to be deleted. However, comment sections are as much for the critique as they are for the compliments, praise, and yes, stupidity. And even if a comment is so stupid/mean/offensive you think it deserves to be put down, let us have a field day with it first. Because the person/imbecile ratio is slightly better than the rest of the Internet, they’ll probably get ridiculed. And who dosen’t love rideculeing an offensive idiot?
Curtisimo - SO DAMN SMUG
Curtisimo September 19, 2012, 2:26 AM EST.
Come on Daisy, even if you didn’t know you’re kinda spoiling a chance for David! Rach sounded pretty interested!
But it is always lovely when Daisy uses pet names for her friends!
Cavara September 19, 2012, 2:42 AM EST.
Chill down guys, Suitcase wouldn’t even bother to post if it was just for a couple annoying comments. The problem is when the comments section stops being a chance to say your opinion about the latest page of the comic and becomes a dumpster of redundant whining and complaining.
Everybody is welcome to express his point of view, but try to put in at least something interesting, or your comments will actually just be a pile of whining. And be urbane please, if you can help it.
Cavara September 19, 2012, 2:57 AM EST.
Typical asshurt ‘customer is always right’ attitude. I’m pretty sure the ones sobbing into their pillows at night about Daisy being ‘fat’ haven’t contributed one cent to this comic. How about you morons go find another internet site to troll? Suitcase, I’m going to donate because you told them essentially to STFU.
Eeyup September 19, 2012, 3:35 AM EST.
And we all thought Daisy was David’s friend!
Totally dissed him there, but to be realistic it’s not like they would have found David too attractive anyway… Poor guy, hope he gets a girl after the intermission, or will Taeshi make it so that he’s the only one who never gets a date - which would, in fairness make it more like real life because there are people like that :p
I wonder what Jessica will scheme up next?
foreveryoung5 September 19, 2012, 4:22 AM EST.
SkyOfMyOwnLight, yes, the comment section is only for pleasant things. Critique can please me too, but I didn’t think your post was very civil or insightful. So it goes!
“Critique not desired” was a joke, by the way. A deviantART joke. I made it because I am sophisticated
SuitCase September 19, 2012, 4:35 AM EST.
Timing is key to story telling. You can’t just give people the bits they want when they want them. You need to build suspense, fill in the background, set the scene up.
People can complain all they want about the plot not moving forward right now, but it kinda is in a way. We’re about to see two important and potentially huge things.
For starters, we’re going to get a “real time” glimpse of mike and Lucy well before things went to hell. I’m looking forward to seeing what Taeshi does with this. Strong bias have formed among us all as we read through the comics and we seem to all see our own rose tinted version of the history between Mike and Lucy. It’s shown a lot in the comments how many people think Lucy is perfect innocent and how many people think Mike has good reason to feel the way he does. Now we’re getting to see some “new” past between the pair, as created by Taeshi after those waves of comments and reader opinions. So I’m personally hoping to see something between the pair we may have missed. Maybe some sort of modification to how they interact by Taeshi to better reflect the relationship dynamic she’s trying to create. This is a pretty unique opportunity and imo is just as interesting as moving the plot forward.
Secondly, if I understand what Taeshi and Suitcase are saying, this isn’t just a plot summary, its a plot summary as told by the characters within said plot, and surely people knows what that means! BIASED!!!!!!! We’ll get a good insight to a few things from the comic from say, daisy’s point of view or mikes point of view. Again, this is a unique chance to better understand the characters and the relationships between them, and something i’m looking forward too.
By the time this is over, the plot everyone is craving is only going to be even more rewarding for it. Journey before destination. Not to mention we may even understand things better from this, or who knows, maybe we might even learn something entirely new from this chapter that is highly important to current times.
Alpharius September 19, 2012, 4:56 AM EST.
There is a huge diiference beetwen critisism and Being a whiney ******.

I’m betting Daisy thinks David has a thing for other guys
Thatguy September 19, 2012, 7:23 AM EST.
@Thatguy: I think he’s into guys AND ladies.
Also, guys, complaining about the comic/comment box-y thing/David is going to do nothing but make everyone else exasperated.
Plantsforhire September 19, 2012, 7:32 AM EST.
there already was a david stalking flower girl chapter…
Sceoter September 19, 2012, 8:32 AM EST.
awww, come now Daisy. I think David’s a cutie . I’ll bet deep down he means well. Silly guys are fun to be around <3
Iris September 19, 2012, 9:11 AM EST.
Wow, guys, look at you being all socially conscious in the comments section of a cat webcomic.
Except, not really, you can go **** yourselves if you think it’s really a moral imperative for Suitcase to keep **** like that up. It’s a free ****ing service, at it’s basest level, so gtfo if you’re unhappy with it. Seriously, I doubt the veracity of your enthusiasm for Tae’s work if you can so easily criticize how they moderate anything related to it.
Dr. Moron September 19, 2012, 9:45 AM EST.

allbofo September 19, 2012, 10:17 AM EST.
Well the style is starting to grow on me and this page is pretty good. I have only one thing to point out: what’s with the hair/fur sticking out of Daisy’s arm? Is it to make her more distinguishable? Well anyway, its nice to go back in the story for a little while if I do say so myself… eh, I ran out of things to comment.
Starkeyblade September 19, 2012, 11:10 AM EST.
@Suitcase Are you really talking about being civil? I guess you just joined the “a****** pile” as you so civilly* put it. And yeah, I thought I was being pretty insightful. Shame you don’t have an open mind, you should work on that.
SkyOfMyOwnLight September 19, 2012, 11:54 AM EST.
@EddieFit Thank you, glad someone on this comic is completely crazy and/or braindead!
SkyOfMyOwnLight September 19, 2012, 11:56 AM EST.
Some people just want to make exception to David

Let’s stop the off-topic discussion and go back to talking about Daisy’s fat ***
SuitCase September 19, 2012, 1:03 PM EST.
I love your commentary x3
Stevum September 19, 2012, 2:05 PM EST.
Long time reader, first time poster.
What’s so hard about leaving a page if you don’t like what you see or don’t like how a comic is constructed? I read close to 30 webcomics on a weekly basis, and the commentary is usually the supportive type.
The internet is a vast place people, take your negativity out somewhere else please.
Commander Starcat September 19, 2012, 4:03 PM EST.
“I made it because I am sophisticated”
Can I use that quote? It’s all kinds of awesome.
Dracain September 19, 2012, 4:04 PM EST.
I don’t know if I’m just confused, but I’m pretty sure she was asking about Lucy, not David, and that Daisy just misunderstood. Im pretty sure that was a thing, her having a crush on Lucy and all that…
Purple Platypi September 19, 2012, 4:40 PM EST.
Why the hell does Daisy’s body-size fluctuate more than Romney’s opinions on most things that are not marriage or taxes?
And It’s not even between chapters, but sometimes on the same page.
One moment she’s making Lucy look chubby, the other it looks like she has her own gravitational field complete with small planets going on.
HYDEKA September 19, 2012, 4:43 PM EST.
Why does it say next page on wednesday when it IS wednesday?

@Eddiekit Sorry! Typo, I meant “not”.
SkyOfMyOwnLight September 19, 2012, 5:14 PM EST.
Chocolate milk fight?
I was recently reading my copy of the book and I could SWEAR that there’s a chocolate milk fight in there somewhere. I wonder if this page runs alongside that?
Either way, I had major deja vu reading that panel.
ravengal September 19, 2012, 5:29 PM EST.
Wierd how the RachealXPaulo thing never followed through, or got mentioned again. O and way to go daisy, way to defend a friend. Ya Davids wierd, but thats y we like him
JustSomeCritic September 19, 2012, 5:48 PM EST.
LoL The creaters of this commic r real instagators
JustSomeCritic September 19, 2012, 5:53 PM EST.
Why does Daisy look so nervous?
Stevum September 19, 2012, 6:08 PM EST.
Just reding the commentets till the next comic comes out is enjoyable. also I love daisy’s face in the 5th box and she looks so clules in the 6th box.
Blue fox September 19, 2012, 6:30 PM EST.
The correct words to describe David is weird/retarded.
Otter guy September 19, 2012, 7:02 PM EST.
Chocolate milk! Paulo doesn’t stand a chance…
IBeMe September 19, 2012, 8:26 PM EST.
I just lost a lot of respect for Daisy. Remember how she had to go through a whole arc about her insecurities regarding her one-dimensional role in the group as the “little sister”? The lesson she should have learned was that people (or characters) are multifaceted. Sure, David’s main social role is comic relief, but he’s a loyal friend and a good guy. Yet she just brushes him aside like he’s worthless. Shame on Daisy. I guess once you get in a relationship in this comic you lose all your social decency.
Solvek September 20, 2012, 12:25 AM EST.
But SuitCase….we can’t even see Daisy’s ***. What a shame.
TraceLegacySSOF September 20, 2012, 1:40 AM EST.
See I understand where you’re coming from Suitcase, but disregarding some of the fanbase and telling them that they aren’t important enough because they don’t throw their money at you is kinda wrong. Sorry that some people work for money and have to pay for things by themselves without the added money needed to back the website. If you have any kind of fanbase, you should not segregate one section of it. People are upset: sure. Maybe the explanation of the chapter could’ve been better? I mean this isn’t what I expected. You can’t point at some of the members and just say, “Get over it.” You could offer that or maybe point them to different sections or blogs so they can satisfy their time there. If you were us would you like someone who helps with the webcomic to point at you and say “You’re a *********. Get off of the internet.” Because you said you didn’t like something?
Kikren September 20, 2012, 3:38 AM EST.
@Kikren I agree. I get where suitcase is comming from, but i love this commic and am working on getting a second job just so i can afford it. I feel bad that i didn’t buy the first book, and i realy realy am invested. Suitcase i get where your comming from but u do know that people who don’t buy it will still like it annoff to want to buy it or tell more friends about this wonderful comic. Again i get how u were saying “hey people don’t freak about that stuff bla bla bla” but keep in mind when u write to them the way u do it realy comes off harsh. I’ve noticed it multiple times and if u simply don’t agree then and won’t have it u disapiont this reader. Dont attack your fans. Make simple valid points but keep them short. when u write it seems like your attacking your fans and alot of other creators will tell u thats not what u want to do. PS don’t hate me i realy love u guys, i just c that alot over the time i’ve come to love this wonderful comic. U’re doing an awsome job and i’m realy proud of u. When i get my second job i’m not only buying both books but i’m becomming a member of that special program or whatever lol beats me. Keep up the good work. Sighned a fan lol
JustSomeCritic September 20, 2012, 8:51 AM EST.
It’s not that the non-paying fanbase is “not important enough”, it’s that we are doing the most we can, or rather the most I can. We are updating a comic three times a week without fail with other little goodies on the side such as AskBCB, and that’s not counting all the other stuff I had to do in the background like the extra pages for the books and everything, and even a new upcoming BCI comic. You’re overanalysing what Souppy’s saying and taking it as more vicious than intended.
It’s not “you don’t matter”, it’s more “it’s either this chapter or nothing at all while I do background work, what’s your choice?”
Taeshi September 20, 2012, 9:35 AM EST.
I choose thank u for everything
JustSomeCritic September 20, 2012, 9:37 AM EST.
Okay then. Maybe it’s coming off worse than it was supposed to be. I appreciate both of you and your dedication to your work it’s just that with every fanbase you’re going to have people be mad at SOMETHING. I understand that it feels like some are unappreciative and I’m glad that you have realized that you can’t make everyone happy and I think that this is going to be an interesting chapter. It’s just that sometimes Suitcase’s…humor(?) may come off as more spiteful. Sorry for reading into it too much.
Kikren September 20, 2012, 12:19 PM EST.
@ Taeshi your doing the best you can and if pepole have a problem with it im soory to say to dam bad. And im looking forword to the new comic cant wait to read it.
Blue fox September 20, 2012, 12:50 PM EST.
“Suitcase: GIBE MONEY PLZZ!!”
Yeah, that’s gonna be positive PR, for sure, anlong with his sense of humor (if it can even be called that)
Ever considered a big fat “DONATE NOW!!” banner right over the chapter title or right under the comic itself instead?
Paypal, Flattr, the whole ordeal.
It’s working for a fair lot of sites, so WHY can’t it here?
genus September 20, 2012, 1:45 PM EST.
A certain pink-haired kitty just can’t live it down. The comic stays interesting.
Hoheh-Iyah-Hohee September 20, 2012, 1:55 PM EST.
What on earth are you all talking about?
I wrote an entire FAQ for this chapter to reassure long-time readers it’d still be worth reading. I’m not sure how it could have been clearer; I think the only people who misunderstand this chapter chose not to read it.
I’m not sure who I attacked or segregated or how I begged for money. I tried to put it as best I could: if for whatever reason the chapter being posted is not interesting enough and you cannot wait for the next chapter to be posted, your only real option for more BCB is to pay for the stuff we offer to supporters. While we’re 100% dedicated to 3 regular updates a week, we don’t promise anything beyond that.
But we do offer a dozen chapters worth of bonus comics for a fee, and if you’re desperate for something that’s not this chapter, it’s the only thing I can recommend. If you can’t afford it, that’s okay - but we can’t afford some things we want, either.
Also, uh, to the guy talking about begging but then suggesting we beg for donations, I don’t understand if you’re serious or sarcastic. BCI was designed to be our way of soliciting donations while also offering a lot to the fans kind enough to support us.
SuitCase September 20, 2012, 2:39 PM EST.
Hey Daisy, what exactly is wrong with being weird?
Xenos September 20, 2012, 2:44 PM EST.
I dislike all this conflict this used to be a happy place. Some people just shouldn’t be allowed to read it.
Stevum September 20, 2012, 5:11 PM EST.
Non-paying readers got loads of material, like the authors getting the heart to upload three times by week, 1 tumblr account, answers question in formspring…I can’t name anyone else with a webcomic to do so much stuff for everyone. Not speaking about the making of the books and merchandise, it’s more time consuming (and expensive) than it sounds.
Give some words of respect for the creators behind this comic, they are doing a lot to please you. Maybe too much.
Oh about the Daisy’s fuss: this is not a shounen manga. There’s more than just perfect-silhueted girls. Nothing more boring than purposed fanservice while ignoring the wideness of the world.
The girl is growing like that now or perhaps Taeshi wished she could become like that earlier. Improvement on art does this.
