Hey guys, sorry for the relatively mild delay! I was, um, tagging images on Candybooru, our brand new imageboard thing that you can post fanart and edits and other BCB miscellany to. It will soon replace the fanart and official art sections of the Extras page!
Anyway, for those that thought Sandy’s comic was a filler, hahahaha. Prepare to be disappointed by this one. Be warned, the quality in the next bunch of pages isn’t going to be as good as the regular type (as above). I began this chapter as a Top Webcomics incentive but decided to make it a real one because I couldn’t help but put a lot of effort into making it. Also, I came to like the story too much.
There is a benefit to you guys, though, because doing this chapter with less complex shading\colouring meant that I could dedicate the next two months to working on the very complicated and detailed chapter 60 as well as special content for the BCB Volume 1 book.
And for those of you that need to be spoonfed, yes, this comic is going to be about a daydream taking place in Paulo’s mind.
Whooo! Another Path, PAULOxLUCY ARC! HELL YA, THIS IS GONNA BE AWSOME! I have been waiting for this for so long, this is gonna be kickass!
I wonder how many people will think this is canon even though it’s obvious it is a dream, and Taeshi even said so in her commentary.

This is a cool setup for the story, Taeshi. I’m so terribly excited!

ahh poor paulo can’t catch a break
lynchy226 August 2, 2010, 6:28 AM EST.
Yay! Another flashback chapter or so I think it is
Just read the commentary, sort of right And the BCB Book won’t be available on the launch of the store?

Was David always that freakishly tall?
Red August 2, 2010, 7:07 AM EST.
Red, david’s a dog, which means hes taller than most cats.
thatonedude August 2, 2010, 7:16 AM EST.
Yeah. He’s the tallest of the gang. Height reference over here: http://www.bittersweetcandybowl.com/c51/p3.html
See how he just towers over Lucy

Ooh, are we gonna see Paulo with Lucy? This is gonna be good.

Paulo needs to be slapped…..David isn’t helping but he’s a idiot so you can’t slap him.
John Wolf August 2, 2010, 8:29 AM EST.
I never noticed, but David is way taller than Paulo… Wierd…

I would ask a few questions here, but I’m sure they will be answered within a few pages.
Also, *perks up* Book 1? As in, purchasable merchandise? Yes! Go Taeshi!

@Gnukko: you can never watch enough red vs blue. NEVER
Especially caboose =)

plus david isn’t as funny as used to be. FIX IT!!!!
God OF Brown August 2, 2010, 9:39 AM EST.
I really like David, but you need to stop using him as such a tormentor to Paulo. I’m suprised that Paulo hasn’t blown up at him yet; in fact, I’m kinda expecting it.

ITS KILLING ME!

Ok, new page and new adventure. Let’s see…
Frustrated Writer August 2, 2010, 9:56 AM EST.
i think that Paulo wants Lucy but he knows that its wrong..
so he is just pushing her away(not always pushing her away)
so nothing happens.
i think.. *.*
cats4ever98 August 2, 2010, 9:57 AM EST.
And so it begins…
Funny that we’re gonna see what Paulo thinks would happen.
Ved of Flames August 2, 2010, 10:06 AM EST.
Stupid David. It’s like he thinks you can only have a relationship with a girl if you have sex with them. xP Paulo needs to yell at him.
TheGirlWhoNeverComments August 2, 2010, 10:08 AM EST.
Wow the only times we’ve even seen the main charactors in be last month or so are at he end of Paulo’s player arc, and Mikes voic in the sandy filler, so all I’m saying is that if this wasn’t such a god comic I would be ****** off.
random fan August 2, 2010, 10:11 AM EST.
Rasputin August 2, 2010, 10:23 AM EST.
Are we going to see what would’ve happened if they DID do it?! WEEE so much fun! I LOVE alternate demensions. Ooo-OOO-ooh…lol
Aglet August 2, 2010, 10:29 AM EST.
Second-to-last panel: is Paulo angry or thoughtful?
Kikren August 2, 2010, 10:33 AM EST.
@ Kikren: He’s still irritated at David, but seems to slowly be sinking into his own thoughts.
Skygaze August 2, 2010, 11:08 AM EST.
Will chapter 60 be about Augustus’s gang? I got a gut feeling it is!
Also 25 PAGES? NOOOO
Also AUGUST? AUGUST?!?! NOOOOOO!!!!!
Somedude August 2, 2010, 11:09 AM EST.
Well, I think I see Paulo blushing a bit in the last panel so maybe there are some residual feelings for Lucy.
Also, I really want to punch David lol. Maybe the reason he is on Paulo’s case all the time to sleep with a bunch of girls is because he is insecure with his own sexuality? I dunno just a thought.
At least Paulo is being a bit more stern with David in this page then I have seen before. Maybe his encounters with Jasmine and the recent argument knocked some sense into him.
Iris August 2, 2010, 11:10 AM EST.
Good man-cat, Paulo. Keep using that better judgement.
Six August 2, 2010, 11:10 AM EST.
Honestly, I think this is a really cool idea 8D I wanna see what ‘happens!’
Skygaze August 2, 2010, 11:11 AM EST.
Awwww…you should have left it ambiguous, like Donny Darko.
….minus the creepy rabbit suit of course.
Doctor_What August 2, 2010, 11:21 AM EST.
Goodness me, now David has a more dickish attitude than even Paulo, i never thought i’d see the day

So many things to look forward to here~! Needless to say, I want that book.
Kris August 2, 2010, 1:22 PM EST.
So..Paulo DIDN’T @#$% those girls?…I’d kinda believe it, Paulo may be a bit of a jerk and a wannabe ladies man but deep down he’s a good guy. Also it’s likely to believe those girls would lie about Paulo just to mess with Tess…..I never remembered high school kids to be so scheming. Mean, yes, but not like “diabolical planning” mean.
mistervale August 2, 2010, 1:25 PM EST.
David grew. o_o
Pie~ :D August 2, 2010, 1:31 PM EST.
this is going to awesome!
awsomesauce August 2, 2010, 1:31 PM EST.
Mistervale: The timeline of this daydream is BEFORE Paulo screws those girls. It’s meant to take place before the page where he’s walking through the hallway very angry thinking “stupid david grrr grrr”
THIS MEANS HE HAS NOT MET JASMINE.
SO NO BANGING RACHEL AND JESS YET
he is still single
Taeshi August 2, 2010, 1:35 PM EST.

Obsidian August 2, 2010, 3:20 PM EST.
i think David is the real evil master mind in this story and not final fantasy cat, and he’s trying to sabotage Paulo first.
G August 2, 2010, 4:13 PM EST.
eh finaly chapter 59 page 1 ive been waiting for this whole day.
Awesome stuff in the beggining
kirkiss August 2, 2010, 4:49 PM EST.
I really think that David should have his chapter soon. I want to see how his stalking is doing.

@ random_bypasser: Gosh, you’re right. He’s not so innocent anymore, he’s become quite the perv.
Skygaze August 2, 2010, 5:49 PM EST.
So whats Paulo’s dirty little mind gonna come up with now?
starfighter-105 August 2, 2010, 5:51 PM EST.
So, we have a comic about Paulo’s daydream about screwing Lucy, and yet, I’m more mesmerised by the fact that David looks funny when he walks in the last panel.
Raydio Ga Ga August 2, 2010, 5:56 PM EST.
I LOVE PAULO
so……. if he and lucy became a couple i would LOVE IT
however with all the drama going on, i doubt they would last long and then their breakup would make me cry
and at the moment i don’t think their characters suit each other enough to get into a long lasting relationship
but who knows?
maybe with some drastic personality changes (i know that they’re both already starting to change) this just might work
wings August 2, 2010, 6:22 PM EST.
Has David always been that tall?
Snorlax August 2, 2010, 6:31 PM EST.
Haha! I love the way David’s tail shakes as he walks and whistles xD It looks so funny and I love the way David’s all “what a nice day” and because of his trash talking Paulo got a bit sad
Xydrek August 2, 2010, 6:41 PM EST.
pretty cool idea
tandy August 2, 2010, 6:51 PM EST.
i love this comic but i h8 waitin 4 it lol but i have 2 say it is worthit n this new chapter should b interesting ….
not applicable August 2, 2010, 7:15 PM EST.
Aaaannnd, back to the relative normalcy of David and Paulo. Better yet, it’s gonna be a non-canon thing about Paulo and Lucy, which is my favorite couple that probably will not happen.
Solario the Visored August 2, 2010, 7:30 PM EST.
Odd….David has had a growth spirt! Uless I’m crazy and he has allways been that tall….x3 *points to name thingy* Yay! Random cat face thingy!!

I had hoped that we were taking a brake from pauloxlucy angst for a while now. But I guess once the angst train starts moving, it just keeps on going, and going, and moving till the (hopefully) reasonably happy ending

I think Paulo would be in extreme danger of using personal growth to become boring if David wasn’t around
Dragom August 3, 2010, 12:49 AM EST.
@ FanGirl OMG
I no rite, he looks so much like a fox xD
But yeah, he’s a cat. A Somalian, which is the longhaired version of an Abbyssinian. I enjoy looking at the little similarities between Paulo and Abbey ^^

You know 4chan started as just an imageboard but anyway I always thought of David as more of a Brah dude not a Dude dude.
Andyfoxy August 3, 2010, 6:03 AM EST.
David is definitely a brah dude. And remind me why you brought 4chan into this?
Hannibal August 3, 2010, 12:43 PM EST.

Oh lawdy, why do I sense a foreboadingnessuses in this?
Oh wait, no. Thats me.
I have gas.
Still though, filler arcs don’t bug me much. I’m waiting for the play they are going to have. Something tells me that will be quite an interesting chapter.

Why has it taken this long for some people to notice David’s a *******? He was my favorite character, but I think he’s kinda obsessed with sex…more than Paulo.

@SkylineFaux: Thanks for the links! I don’t forum-lurk in general, so it’s nice to see what I’m missing!
@Skygaze: “long-haired version of Abyssinian” … What. Okay, other than that, what similarities do you see between them, because I’m pretty sure both would be miffed at even a hint of similarity.

Okay, I don’t remember who had asked me what similarities I saw between Paulo and Abbey ^^” I had made a reply, but then my laptop died before it got through, so I’m just going to repeat it again.
First off, they both have dark-ish fur (deep orange, brown), white markings (also, both of them have white chests and bellies), and at least parts of their hair are darker than the rest of their fur (Abbey’s hair is darker, Paulo has dark tips)
Plus, Paulo’s ears can seem a little big at times. Not as big as Abbey’s, though.
Skygaze August 4, 2010, 1:39 PM EST.
hahaha….well nom won….cuz my internet turned off
Aly August 4, 2010, 3:00 PM EST.
*in reference to my previous post*
The reason why I started looking at Abbey and Paulo’s similarities in the first place is because Abbey is an Abbyssinian, and Paulo is a Somalian, which is the longhaired version of the Abbyssinian =D

They didn’t do anything that night. Taeshi even said that this is only a daydream of what could have been, nothing more.

TheDinosaursRevenge October 17, 2010, 5:24 PM EST.
I went through and read all the comics in 2 days up until this one. Then I came to it.
So sad. And so depressing. To think Paulo and Lucy could have been something with such a happy ending…

Wow, wait, what? I just noticed something, David has become less of a moron, but is turning into a horrible influence…
Ted February 2, 2011, 1:18 PM EST.
Oh wow. I just realized how tall David is. Either that or Paulo’s really short.
Ty February 3, 2011, 10:54 AM EST.
so if paulo is the average, then david is pretty tall.
because, i’m really short and my friend is really tall and the size relation is about the same.
@Ted: everyone grows up
DFA February 8, 2011, 7:02 PM EST.
Given Lucy’s obvious state of mind that night, yes it would have been a horrible mistake. However, if she propositions Paulo whilst in a saner frame of mind he should totally go for it. Although he’s dating that freshman gal now, so… wow, David’s right. That ship has sailed. Might come back to port someday, but not anytime in the immediate future.
ArchangelM127 February 11, 2011, 6:30 PM EST.
dear god you writer give paulo another chance with lucy
sincerely david lol
waka waka February 14, 2011, 5:52 PM EST.
And here is the darkest chapter in Bittersweet Candy Bowl history. The one that has the best story and the best couple, LucyXPaulo, but is sadly not canon. NOT ****ING CANON.
I’m so sad. If you meant to have this be an alternate history, then clearly you DON’T want LucyXPaulo to happen at the end of BCB, because why else would you go through the trouble of having this chapter exist?
That just depresses the **** out of me, to know that my favorite couple is now definitely not going to happen.
But I won’t let that ruin everything. I’ll enjoy the chapter to it’s fullest, even if it means nothing by the end.
Plus, I’m still crossing my fingers hoping that they’ll go out in canon-time at some point. There’s plenty of time between now and 2013, right? Even if it’s just a brief fling I’ll still be happy with it. Just as long as it happens…Pretty please?
NintendoSegaSonyGuy May 22, 2011, 8:48 AM EST.
