For those who were confused by the pink in the previous page, HERE’S SOME MORE.
Paulo makes the best damn instant noodles on the planet.
I would suppose it makes less sense to think that the glow of the alarm clock dominates the room when a lot of this takes place in the afternoon, but I suppose in editing this I wanted to give the impression of a night dragging on, and I know my memories of sleepovers often involved a lot of dark rooms with glowing clock radios..
SuitCase March 1, 2010, 2:57 AM EST.
I’m really uneasy right now. =/
Backrubs March 1, 2010, 3:20 AM EST.
Ahhhhhhh my eyes are melting! This page radiates cute and aw and Paulo is such a sweetie here!
Alison March 1, 2010, 3:25 AM EST.
Best page of the chapter until now!
Paulo is being so sweet…
Ana (aka Knux-the-Killer) March 1, 2010, 6:04 AM EST.
DO SMELL SOME PAULO X LUCY HERE lol
Nah this is a really nice page Paulo’s being a good friend
SonicChaosBlaze March 1, 2010, 7:22 AM EST.
does this mean the end of the TessXPaulo coupling, or is this just an innocent “help from a friend”?
dibs March 1, 2010, 7:31 AM EST.
“And they have the gaul… to have FUN??!” [/robotnik]
DavCube March 1, 2010, 8:21 AM EST.
I’m starting to enjoy PauloxLucy a bit more every day. :]
SereneHeaven March 1, 2010, 8:57 AM EST.
I’m hoping Paulo is holding a pickle in that 4th drawing…
Hdss March 1, 2010, 9:31 AM EST.
Paulo such a good friend!!!!! :)
Mezmo March 1, 2010, 10:09 AM EST.

Greenpool75 March 1, 2010, 10:13 AM EST.

jmiles March 1, 2010, 10:32 AM EST.
@backrubs, yeah so am i :s
Blaze March 1, 2010, 10:35 AM EST.
that pink spot in page 7 was the alarm clock. Makes sense now
Mezmo March 1, 2010, 10:52 AM EST.
AND THEN THEY HAD SEX, DAMMIT! >8O

Pancakes! March 1, 2010, 11:18 AM EST.
EJ March 1, 2010, 12:00 PM EST.
It ate the rest of my comment :c
I’m kinda worried Lucy will become dependent on Paulo now S’not healthy, Luce.
EJ March 1, 2010, 12:01 PM EST.
You know what?
Considering what a tremendous *** Mike has become now.
I support PauloxLucy now.
Way to go Paulo, way to go… *plays “Up Where We Belong” in the background*
dark-dragon-rod March 1, 2010, 12:23 PM EST.
U guys are forgetting about Tess !!!!!
Mezmo March 1, 2010, 12:39 PM EST.
I pretty much hate PauloxTess so…
YAY! I never thought I’d like PauloxLucy since PauloxDaisy is my favorite but it’s really growing on me ! And fast!
This is definitely one of the best pages so far of the chapter! The paneling is fantastic, and the glow of the alarm clock is well thought out. Very well done.
Carma March 1, 2010, 3:14 PM EST.
And not in a particularly pauloxlucy way just dawwwww
Xetch March 1, 2010, 3:41 PM EST.
Mezmo March 1, 2010, 5:16 PM EST.
Blaze: you’re so sweet! Isn’t that the kinda thing I’m supposed to give incentives for, though? I should probably do a bunch of incentives one of these days..
Taeshi March 1, 2010, 5:42 PM EST.
Bu-Bu-But I want Tess to be happy! Stay Good Paulo, Stay Good!
I just want Tess to be Happy…
If Lucy wants a new Relationship, then maybe she should pull Tess out of her cloest rather than steal her boyfriend…
And, yeah, I know that Lucy isn’t really trying to steal Paulo, and I believe Paulo is also trying not to forget about Tess too, but I’m just voicing my support for Tess.
ShadowMask March 1, 2010, 6:30 PM EST.
Lindsay March 1, 2010, 6:48 PM EST.
Aw Paulo! You’re sooooo sweet! :3
xXKittyRosuXx March 1, 2010, 8:09 PM EST.
tess isn’t paulo’s girlfriend as far as i remember, after the last chapter where tess talks about how she isn’t ready to commit, so luckily for him if lucy manages to hook up with him, then he won’t have to worry about that mob of girls at school that kicked mike’s *** for being a cheater
jmiles March 1, 2010, 10:20 PM EST.
@ Blaze lol BCB is now above VG Cats
Backrubs March 2, 2010, 12:18 AM EST.
Oh good. Now Veronica is more popular than VG Cats. I think I can retire.
SuitCase March 2, 2010, 12:23 AM EST.
VG cats is funny but updates are slower than a snail and bcb is much better than it for a bunch of reasons. One: us funny, two: awesome plot, three: great characters, four most of all u can post ur comments with out signing up to something. Also taeshi( Veronica,Sinker:)) u are awesome that u comunicate with your fans!!!!
Mezmo March 2, 2010, 12:38 AM EST.
Aika March 2, 2010, 1:02 AM EST.

ThAT would be really weird though :-#
I don't hate you March 2, 2010, 12:31 PM EST.
I always loved the idea of Paulo and Lucy c:
but I still have the feeling that Mike and Lucy just belong together >>
Lisa March 2, 2010, 2:11 PM EST.
how true lisa, but every1 loves paulo and lucy for some reason
Blaze March 2, 2010, 4:30 PM EST.
Is it just me or did Lucy stop crying on the 7th picture when she’s eating on paulo’s bed and then start tearing up again when he looked at her either Paulo put onions in her bowl or something is going on between her and him :-/
I don't hate you March 2, 2010, 4:37 PM EST.

Paulo is a pillow hog.
Faith March 2, 2010, 7:06 PM EST.
Aww the healing process. ^.^
An I realized Lucy’s eating ramon with a spoon.

Ved of Flames March 5, 2010, 8:28 PM EST.
I like the ballance between the green and red. It gives it good glow.
Moddy Auld March 17, 2010, 9:15 PM EST.
What exactly is Paulo saying with that pickle/cucumber/whatever in his hand that makes Lucy blush so hard in the 4th panel?
jelloman March 19, 2010, 11:39 AM EST.
hey you edited it
John March 22, 2010, 12:20 AM EST.
I wrote my comment on the previous page before even turning to this one… and I was right!
As f0r PauloxLucy, (Paulo & Lucy, dammit!) I think everyone’s just warming up to the idea now since Mike has made his case pretty clear and that this was the pairing that’s been in the making since they were in 5th grade and Paulo was the too-shy new kid.
Plus Tess has expressed her opinion of a relationship between her and Paulo being less than ideal not only because of age difference, but also because it would be fairly short-lived when she graduates at the end of the year and goes off to college.
And yeah, as great as VGCats was/is, Scott’s priorities seem to have shifted away from his comics for the most part.
waffle911 April 7, 2010, 9:52 PM EST.
I can understand why most of you have eyes popping out of your heads. Don’t worry. You won’t be mentally scarred this time through. Though funny stuff happens in a few pages. Unfortunately, you won’t be able to say, “MY MIND! IT IS BLOWN!” Too bad.
WOW geek April 17, 2010, 5:07 PM EST.
Very sweet of Paulo to help her out.
Unfair Critique April 17, 2010, 10:58 PM EST.
Wait, wuzzat about instant noodles? Hook me up with that man!
Hijack April 18, 2010, 11:57 AM EST.

THANK THE GOOD LORD FOR ROMEN NOODLES!

Lucy eats her instant noodles with a spoon. A fat wooden one.
Also, embarassed Paulo is embarassed, and trying not to nosebleed.
Calvin April 30, 2010, 2:44 AM EST.

Rue May 14, 2010, 12:00 AM EST.
I really like the style in this one; no noticeable mistakes and it gives off a nice atmosphere. ;DnnTo me atleast. ( )
Diddums May 24, 2010, 5:17 PM EST.
It seems to me that she’s using Paulo as a replacement for mike… Meh that’s just an opinion btw great comin taeshi!
randomness July 5, 2010, 1:17 AM EST.
Lucy lucky to have someone at that moment.
DSHigsby July 21, 2010, 6:36 PM EST.
I honestly gotta say, I like the way panel 3 looks (or is it picture 3). I don’t know what to call it but its the one right under the first one. I’m not so sure why I like it, but I think its because I like the way they are shown, and I tend to appreciate when the idea of a picture is shown perfectly, like how Paulo is willing to confort Lucy. Or maybe its just because I’m a sap for drama or emotions.
Meh, it might be both, but I still like it. ^^
Ahiru the Wolf July 23, 2010, 3:11 AM EST.
pauolos mom : paulo wake uuuup!
paulo (disoriented) hmmmm?
lucy : *wake up* hmmmm!?
both : HUh!!??

Your Random Name here :3 August 1, 2010, 9:12 PM EST.
I know you said they’d never get together, but with how Mike’s acting, I’m supporting PauloXLucy right now.
Skykitsune August 4, 2010, 5:48 PM EST.
Again with the encouraging of the PauloxLucy supporters! GAH! You really didn’t like Mike at this point did you Taeshi?
Rahe_chan August 13, 2010, 2:16 PM EST.
Awwwwwr Paulo so cute <3
kate August 16, 2010, 4:36 PM EST.
I think that I just became a member of the fine ship PauloxLucy. I think I love this boat.

That "Dude" October 16, 2010, 8:53 PM EST.
…Oog… This makes my stomach feel terrible… Micheal needs to be smashed for making my stomach hurt…
…Or maybe that’s just hunger…
RuBoo October 21, 2010, 10:54 PM EST.
Paulo has a point for his selflessness right now.
Please. PLEASE don’t destroy this amazing person you are being right now with a stupid try to touch Lucy.
Actually, Paulo’s not included in the list of characters I hate now.
And those are few.
Lyucs October 23, 2010, 10:54 PM EST.
Even though Paulo is allways trying to hit on girls he can be a really good friend at times go go go paulo just keep on truckin =)

And by the way.
Not that PauloxLucy isn’t fantastic (‘cause it’s lovely)
wow, i REALLY hate you.
you put them in bed together… multiple times, and have the worthless ***** feed her?
i need to kill someone, to relieve my stress and lower my blood pressure.
Thanatos July 27, 2011, 9:42 AM EST.
This is why we can’t have nice things, because of people like you.
If you have a problem with this then why don’t you tell her that instead of hiding behind a chapter that was posted nearly two years ago(not that she would even give a ****, though)
I don’t really like PauloxLucy that much, but come on…
Nope August 12, 2011, 2:38 AM EST.
