can i end the comic now
because i totally want to end the comic now
Even though it is tragic that this comic was drawn months ago when I didn’t doodle Lucy with hair.. so you get a weird-looking lovechild of Lucy and Sue as a 17-year old lol
MAN IF I COULDA DRAWN HAIR LUCY
Anyway BCB is over PauloxLucy worked out and MikexSandy worked out, THIS COMIC COULD JUST END ON THAT GOOD NOTE but no this is a silly alternate reality SORRY BROS YOU GET DRAMA ON WEDNESDAY
One more page to go!!
ALSO HEY EVERYONE THE STORE IS FULL OF STUFF AGAIN AND WE PUT UP SOME NEW SHIRTS AND WE MAILED YOUR ORDERS AND OH MY GOD YOU SHOULD BUY STUFF.
YAY First post (or so I think)

Wow… I’m not a supporter of LucyxPaulo, but I loved this arc anyway. It was beautiful. Also… I wonder how long has Paulo been daydreaming in the real world

kara-yasuragi September 24, 2010, 5:20 AM EST.
im so sad
Mblaze September 24, 2010, 5:21 AM EST.
Gotta love how it’s implied that they’ve stayed together for two years in this little daydream.
I guess in the next comic, we cue Paulo running to Lucy on his knees and apologizing…if only. She’d probably just punch him in the jaw anyway, having most likely hardened herself to all emotional contact again by this point… X)
@Locked: I’m 99.9% sure that’s (supposed to be) Lucy.
Pick Yer Poison September 24, 2010, 5:21 AM EST.
she looks so pretty
Meg September 24, 2010, 5:22 AM EST.
Kate September 24, 2010, 5:23 AM EST.
Please no Mike x Lucy I prefer Paulo x Lucy, though Lucy is so…OOC in the latest chapters- always crying- where’s the cute tomboy? I miss that Lucy, she was my fav character.
Well, still hoping for PauLucy
btw. Lucy looks better with short cheek fur x3
Tuka September 24, 2010, 5:23 AM EST.
Man I am glad this is an alternate reality or w/e. But even if it wasn’t it would be a pretty good ending.
Draven September 24, 2010, 5:23 AM EST.
hei tae the comic should end well right?
LUCY PAULO WEDDIN
Mblaze September 24, 2010, 5:23 AM EST.
So for 2 or so something years, Paulo was still under the illusion that Lucy loved Mike despite the things they’ve been through? Can’t say it would’ve been a realistic ending but it’s a sweet enough one =3
That said, I was shouting when I saw Paulo in his toga. Most detailed and longest daydream ever.
PS. I REALLY want that AbbeyxDaisy shirt.

Coonclaws September 24, 2010, 5:32 AM EST.
man I think I need to stop reading this for the rest of the year. then i’ll have a bunch of chapters to read w/o waiting for the next page…aww who am I kidding, the waiting just adds to the drama and I loves the drama ^_^
Sen September 24, 2010, 5:33 AM EST.
SkylineFaux: I didn’t want to imply that she loved Mike until then, I think it was more she accepted it wasn’t gonna work out and I guess she was just comforted by the fact he was still physically there. But in this scene he’s moving away, so Paulo was just worried she’d freak about that. Obviously she hasn’t.
Though admittedly I can imagine Lucy taking a long time to finally fall in love with Paulo and get over Mike, and he’s persevered the entire time, I guess with a pay-off in the end. She’s finally fully and utterly gotten over Mike in this.
Taeshi September 24, 2010, 5:34 AM EST.
I’ll just stop reading and pretend it stopped.

Nice drawings of Paulo and Lucy when they were older. Good thing it’s almost time to go back to a less PauloxLucy filled drama on wednesday

God, why isn’t this the real version. WHYYYYY? T_T
I’m interested to see the drama on Wednesday, though.
Morgan September 24, 2010, 6:24 AM EST.
Point taken. Just goes to show you can’t replace your childhood infatuation so hastily. Especially if it’s with the case of Lucy wherein insanity takes over when the significant other is gone. Still, those weeks (or months) without conversing with Mike pretty much showed she could live without him
SkylineFaux September 24, 2010, 6:28 AM EST.
O.O what the heck! That skipped a long way.
Steve-O September 24, 2010, 6:29 AM EST.
I was not expecting that. Good job Taeshi for once again keeping me on me toes (story wise).

Wait. Lucy is not wearing her ribbon!
This means that we dont actually know if its Lucy! My theory is that Sue kidnapped Lucy and took her place, and they look similar enough that no one has noticed

damn September 24, 2010, 7:16 AM EST.
I never liked where this side arc was going.
so yeah no.
I advocate Mike X Lucy, Sandy X Anyone but Mike, Paulo X That girl you wanted to put him with, Amaya X Alec, and yeah i forgot all the other pairings so bluh
Kavukamari September 24, 2010, 7:17 AM EST.
Only 1 more page!!!
It’s finally going to end this arc

Magnus Darkly September 24, 2010, 7:26 AM EST.
Nice. I loved this arc.
Karori September 24, 2010, 7:26 AM EST.
I predict either David or Lucy snapping him out of his daydream. Or is this even still a daydream?
SkylineFaux September 24, 2010, 7:29 AM EST.
No Skyline. It’s a flashback.
Gabriel Kaxbe September 24, 2010, 7:35 AM EST.
This is the don’t-be-noble-just-hit-that ending? Wow, Lucy does love jerks.
Yappy September 24, 2010, 7:38 AM EST.
Whoa….Lucy looks….furry. Huh….Weird.
But wait, graduation!? Where did that come from?!
You know, originally (as a MikeXLucy shipper) I thought this arc was, while interesting and very well then, not my thing per say. But now I really wanna see how much the real world differs from his fantasy. Will Mike still want to go to Rickter in the real world? Will his friends stop him? What will Paolo do?
Taeshi, you are awesome. You made me care about a group of cats and dogs. That takes talent.
King September 24, 2010, 7:40 AM EST.
oh to quick to end the story!!!!

“Paulo you were just good enough >8(”
man screw Mike I’m sure Lucy realised how freaken AWESOME she and paulo are
Taeshi September 24, 2010, 7:47 AM EST.
God damn Taeshi, Another Path really was an amazing chapter, even non-canon. Screw all those people who ranted on and on how they just wanted to get back to the canon story already. The can’t enjoy a rare treat, seeing what could have happened is not something authors give to their readers
I’ve enjoyed this chapter more then any other in BCB, not because I’m a PauloxLucy shipper, but how much in a single chapter we see the characters grow. Lucy moving from rock bottom and seeing for once that Paulo isn’t just some pervy guy who wants to screw her, that he honestly cares for he. Paulo never left Lucy, he finally showed her how he’s always felt. Both found their peace although it took Lucy longer then Paulo, she finally learned to love him like he loved her.
There is only one downside to Another Path, and that is simply know that this could have happened, but will not. Nasty storm is approaching now, this may be one of our last sweet moments for quite some time.
On a much, much lighter note, shame you didn’t think of hair Lucy till after eh?
Rukral September 24, 2010, 7:50 AM EST.
thank god you were lying, i like reading this

But do end it with MikexSandy
I thought this was gonna be an unhappy ending daydream/alternate reality

One thing i dont get. There’s STILL Nothing about this in the gallery!

This made me abit sad for some reason… Hmm I must just not have enough sleep because jasmine x Paulo is obviously the best. Yep that must be it.

Wow Taeshi you answered my prayer! I can see the age in Paulo and now I can draw that picture I’ve been wanting to!
After I finish my redraw of the Meme >.<
On a side note. Lucy looks too much like Sue in the last panel. :| at least to me anyways.
Your comment on the store has brought me much laughter.
KuroKan September 24, 2010, 8:34 AM EST.

Kate September 24, 2010, 8:38 AM EST.
it’s okay to end this chapter
but please…. many stories was untold and your drawing are too nice so don’t end the whole stories like this
..... September 24, 2010, 8:38 AM EST.
Hey, it’s Luecy! Heh. What a perfect way to end the comic.
Actually, I think the biggest detail is that she’s not wearing her ribbon. Lucy w/out Ribbon != Lucy, apparently.
Who September 24, 2010, 8:40 AM EST.
hahaha goodness i assumed lucy grew up and decided not to wear a dinky ribbon anymore.
Taeshi September 24, 2010, 8:42 AM EST.
Wow just…. wow. And now for harsh reality. sorry paulo.
Kitmaro September 24, 2010, 8:43 AM EST.
i think that many storys are untold
example: casting call
mike blue scraf
joule September 24, 2010, 8:49 AM EST.
Part of me wants to just stop reading this comic right now… so I can pretend everythings perfect… but i know i’ll end up continuing to read this D= it’s just so sad that this daydream is over.
Xzyla September 24, 2010, 8:54 AM EST.
Can I cry now?
…Words can’t describe the feelings going through me right now. It’s a mixture of happiness, relief, and heartwarming.
My happiness is this comic, I love Taeshi for creating the BCB world.
…I need to lie down now…
Ryan September 24, 2010, 8:57 AM EST.
LMFAO I THOUGHT THAT WAS DAISY, TOTALLY LOL’D
Anonymus September 24, 2010, 9:00 AM EST.

I am 18, I am a man but right now I require a Paulo plush toy to hug.
Ictiv September 24, 2010, 9:02 AM EST.
Well, Nero, I am a Paulo and Lucy supporter. I don’t really want the comic to end now, but I certainly want it to end with this result. ^_^
ILB September 24, 2010, 9:04 AM EST.
Too bad this is a day dream. This would be the perfect ending for BCB.
I predict a crying Paulo this Wednesday.
Shade September 24, 2010, 9:12 AM EST.
Although the bf I had after graduating highschool never worked out…oh well. Honestly it was for the best.
Man…he is gonna be disoriented as heck after this daydream
Iris September 24, 2010, 9:14 AM EST.
Lies, Taeshi! Lucy can never be too old for a dinky ol’ ribbon!
Unless, of course, she *is*, which means everything is a lie. A lieeeeeeee! Or Paulo just has a terrible imagination. Man, so in this timeline, they’ve been together, what, a couple of years, and Paulo still has doubts about himself and Lucy. Tsk. Well, then again, he probably has good reason, but he cannot show weakness! The fool! You must exude confidence!
Anyway, this has been a nice diversion, but I’m glad this little arc is ending. Time to get back to the “real” world.
Who September 24, 2010, 9:27 AM EST.
WHOA the ribbon is gone
Aly September 24, 2010, 9:46 AM EST.
But… but… without the ribbon, Lucy’s just another Sue
Kass September 24, 2010, 9:53 AM EST.
@Kass: You mean without the ribbon and the temper.
Yappy September 24, 2010, 10:02 AM EST.
next page Paulo wakes up in bed with David
Delios September 24, 2010, 10:03 AM EST.
Here’s a question….What is Tess’ reaction to all of this? Or Daisy? Or the rest of the gang’s?! I’m curious!
King September 24, 2010, 10:03 AM EST.
keeeee >w< lucyxpauloooo
Nyanko September 24, 2010, 10:03 AM EST.
For the love of all that is holy, end the comic now! It’s perfect the way it is!
Theunwiseman September 24, 2010, 10:08 AM EST.
@ Who and Aly and Kass: Maybe she just had it off for graduation. I DON’T WANNA SAY GOODBYE TO THE RIBBON D=
On another note, OMGOSH THEY LOOK SO AWESOME AS ALMOST-ADULTS! <3333
Paulo’s fur seems to have darkened just a little bit, and now I can see the resemblence between him and his dad a little more. And Lucy looks just BEAUTIFUL.
I love seeing them all grown up, and now I’m kinda hoping that the comic goes on at least to their graduation. So I can see how they’ve all matured and stuff. <33 Although you’re probably going to do that on the last page of this chapter, or…. or not, I dunno. *shrugs*
I almost can’t believe that this chapter is over….
Skygaze September 24, 2010, 10:13 AM EST.
Gay ending. :|
Lucy murdered Sue and assumed her identity.
J. Vincero (Jerk) September 24, 2010, 10:20 AM EST.
D’aww. I thought she didn’t wear it mainly because she had her toga on
Seems like this chapter has gone full circle-ish. Now people are going crazy over how the comic will supposedly end with this chapter Never change, internet.
SkylineFaux September 24, 2010, 10:21 AM EST.
Paulo you dick! Why did you dump Lucy and go after Sue in between the time frame of this page and the one before?! I can’t believe you!
Leaving a Comment September 24, 2010, 10:23 AM EST.
LaComi, you posted that right as I edited my comment to say the same thing.
J. Vincero (Jerk) September 24, 2010, 10:25 AM EST.
@Taeshi: You wish to finish the comic now, we know that this is not the end and that you have more drama and cats to show us. So no matter how sad is this, we’ll wait until Monday for last page and until Wednesday for brand new drama. I like grown up Lucy, she looks smart and calm, more sweet than normal.
I love what you made with Lucy’s eyes. So expressive eyes.
Frustrated Writer September 24, 2010, 10:26 AM EST.
Perfect ending is perfect… T.T
I WILL NEVER GO BACK TO REALITY!!!
G.Arcantos September 24, 2010, 10:32 AM EST.
This is the saddest chapter of the comic thus far, and likely to be one of the saddest period. The mere fact that this is all a daydream of Paulo is the heartfilled, hurtful part. That he’s projected a sense of normal onto Lucy in the midst of a massive problem of the two to bring them together, and that everything just kinda fell in place for them.
That Paulo thinks Lucy is mental stable enough for all this to work out, that it’ll be that easy without Mike, Daisy, and the gang to be present/aware/dramatic, has made this quite a painful leg of the story.
I must say, you’ve outdone your Taeshi.
WCCritic September 24, 2010, 10:32 AM EST.
No don’t end the comic =( I want a MikexLucy ending
NaartjieCat September 24, 2010, 10:36 AM EST.
If you end this comic i will ****ing hunt you down and slaughter you and all your friends AND family!
XamenusFJ September 24, 2010, 10:49 AM EST.
I’m sort of down, i thought this was supposed to be a “it would have been a big mistake” scenario, but alas. It still is the comic everyone was hoping for, so good job.
The guy nobody knows September 24, 2010, 10:50 AM EST.
If this were the end to the comic, it would be the beat ending I’ve ever seen! With that said I’m happy that it isn’t and we still get to read more.
But I have to ask… Anyone else want to know what happen for the slopes two/three years?
Vincent September 24, 2010, 10:58 AM EST.
Muwahahahaha! what a good dream for ol Paulo! fast-forwarding to graduation
Rober2 September 24, 2010, 10:59 AM EST.
WE COULD JUST CHANGE IT
NO ONE WILL KNOW.
…yeah, they will. ;-;
Anyways, if this was the real ending, it’s great.
But, ‘least we get to read more on Monday~
Milly September 24, 2010, 11:01 AM EST.
Once again to real-time Paulo. How would sleeping with Lucy have been a big mistake? Other than the sleeziness of it and the 2 nightmare weeks that followed, it looks like things would have worked out great in the end.
Six September 24, 2010, 11:11 AM EST.
i could totally go into a huge rant right now. damn you paulo!
the gray angel September 24, 2010, 11:16 AM EST.
Oh my god seriously
I want the comic to end here so it’s happy but then that would mean no more BCB and that would totally suck ;~;
kate September 24, 2010, 11:17 AM EST.
I still want to know how this was a “bad idea” as indicated in the first page of this chapter….maybe it was the possibility of Lucy being pregnant and he is taking the daydream further than the “bad” part…
Iris September 24, 2010, 11:19 AM EST.
i thought it was sue on the last panel:P
Billi September 24, 2010, 11:30 AM EST.
Oh god, all of the people saying “he should’ve done it because everything would be perfect” are giving me a headache .___. This is all imagined in lalaland where everything magically works out the best possible way it can. Had Paulo actually slept with Lucy she probably would have castrated him with her bare hands and then beat him to death :|
Although, this would have been a cool ending. But it’ll never happen because of all the drama etc in Bittersweetland :3
Null September 24, 2010, 11:49 AM EST.
wait a min. Taeshi cant end bcb like this ITS A DREAM and i refuse to call it a day dream
smart-n-retarded September 24, 2010, 11:51 AM EST.
NOOOOOOOOO PLZ DON’T MAKE IT END!!!!!!!!!
Silvy September 24, 2010, 11:58 AM EST.
@ Null: Taeshi and Souppy said that they are officially labeling this chapter as a daydream, but really it’s supposed to be an accurate alternate reality. They’re just calling it a daydream so they’d be able to publish it in the BCB volumes.
Skygaze September 24, 2010, 12:04 PM EST.
hah paulo looks like his dad!

But it’s an alternate reality without any drama They should at least have like, dinosaurs or something.

Thatsa lot of years you skip (or something I dont know what the America grade thing is like).

I am just SO turned off at the idea of MikexLucy now. HE DOESN’T DESERVE HER ARRRRGGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!
PAULO X LUCY NAO Pl0x!!!!!!

Weird thing happened. I was just listening to some oldies (ABBA, Boney M, etc) and when Honey, Honey came on suddenly i started seeing images of Bittersweet Candy Bowl…
It feels like such a perfect fit for some reason.

MikexSandy and PauloxLucy, pity, all four of them could have been happy, but nope it’s all about to end and the endless drama shall soon resume.

ah older paulo looks awesome
awsomesauce September 24, 2010, 1:46 PM EST.
Bad end? Not so much. Misinterpreted the signals? Oh yeah. Surprised? I am. Happy Lucy! WOO
Hoheh September 24, 2010, 1:50 PM EST.
NO! NOT THE DRAMA! LET’S LEAVE IT LIKE THIS FOREVAH!
Satire55 September 24, 2010, 2:12 PM EST.
And the sad irony? Only Paulo knows just how much he loves Lucy. BCB FTW! What? I like irony.
Hoheh September 24, 2010, 2:18 PM EST.
Omg, I tear up whenever i see this scene and feel at peace but then reality comes back kicking in telling me its a dream. WHY!!!!!
Chronos September 24, 2010, 2:20 PM EST.
I thought Paulo said it would be a big mistake…but it looks like a happy ending? To top it off is this day dream about Lucy and him being together going to effect how he feels about Jasmine? Oh where will it go from here~?
Skylan2021 September 24, 2010, 2:22 PM EST.
This would actually make a GREAT ending. Wait…what’s that?

And on monday Paulo will make the same mistake Mike did in ch 20 and tell Jasmine “I love you Lucy” while half asleep durring lunch. Bring on the cheater beaters!

Taeshi…you know I love this comic and respect you as an author and an artist, but so many of your fans… I mean, the only way I can explain the vocal majority of your fans is that all the copper wire that goes missing each year is being used to attempt abortions and only succeeds in performing prenatal lobotomies.

GaijinDX September 24, 2010, 4:20 PM EST.
so… in the beginning of this daydream paulo says it’d be a huge mistake… seems to me like it’d be a good mistake, for him anyway.

this is gonna hurt

Sunday September 24, 2010, 4:35 PM EST.
As much as I rooted for these two, seeing them like this, happy and together, really depresses me. But then, all couples do. They belong together, and it reminds me just how empty my own life has been, is and may always be. Strayheart ftl.

Wow one more page.
Chris September 24, 2010, 4:43 PM EST.
Anagha, I’m sorry for what happened to you. Men like that make life harder for guys like me, and it already was hard to begin with. I hope he burns in hell for what he did to you. I had the exact opposite happen to me. I was with a girl I liked, and something happened, what it was I’m not sure, but she then decided to call the cops on me the next day, claiming that I raped her. Me, one of the nicest (and sadly, one of the most timid) guys anyone will ever know accused of such a heinous act. Life is ****ed up at best, isn’t it?
Renadt September 24, 2010, 4:52 PM EST.
now that she is legel, I demand rule 34! <3
Draeko Silver September 24, 2010, 4:53 PM EST.
I thought this would be the page that he would snap back into reality or something.
This is so much more cooler, seeing them older looking, it makes me eager to see them as seniors in the actual story, Lucy is going to look so beautiful. <3
It also makes me think..
I wonder what the college BCB will be like.. if it gets to college, anyways.
PS. YAY THE ORDERS.
I can’t wait to get what I bought….. then I’m probably gonna get some more.

Paulo: GOOD GOD, HE LOOKS LIKE HIS FATHER (at least we know he ain’t a ******* [literally]).
Lucy:…..I honestly thought that was Sue.
Damn that alternate reality, makin’ you work, Taeshi ;P
Obsidian September 24, 2010, 5:12 PM EST.
WHAT A TWEEST.
Omigawwwwd Lucy looks so freakin hot.
Jinx. September 24, 2010, 5:12 PM EST.
given the direction of the story as a whole, I always kind of thought Lucy was destined to end up with Mike somehow…
if it was possible, that’d be great. but PauloxLucy is good too, really good. If freakin Mike never looks back again, Paulo should be the one to step in and swoop Lucy off her feet..
RoseVee September 24, 2010, 5:17 PM EST.
I kind of want to see Mike come back to Lucy. I always thought that Mike and Lucy would end up together.It’d cause a lot drama. Oh! There could even be an awesome fight scene between Mike and Paulo! That’d be devious!
GabbyHun September 24, 2010, 5:31 PM EST.
You gave me the thought of this comic ending. =’(
Saiyza September 24, 2010, 5:41 PM EST.
+This was a nice arc and now its over. To bad get over it
+Yes the ribbon is gone.
+If the comic was to end that would be sad. So don’t do it.
+No P-X-L leave it the way it is, it’s just better that way.
+I also have the same problem as Nonny Mouse. —Help a brotha out man— Also make more hats & jackets/hooeys
+Am I the only one who thinks the hair thing looks cute.
+Yes old Paulo looks like his dad. Cool
+How does he wake up? (I quietly wander to myself.)
+Why was there no one else in the arc. Very unrealistic even for something that aint real to begin with.
+Yes professional, drawn like a professional.
Now no one take it the wrong way.
Just how I thought it. Can’t wait for more.
MUAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA

great pre-ending of daydream…. looks like naturo shippunden when they jump in time from de 14 years old to 16-17 years old… the comic might do a time-jump too, only my suggest….
anyway…great chapter…. congrats taeshi….

Wow. And how long was Paulo daydreaming this !?
Dragonuv3 September 24, 2010, 6:04 PM EST.
I wouldn’t be so against a PauloxLucy ending if Mike had a decent girlfriend to hook up with. Sandy doesn’t cut it for me, and him ending up totally alone is even worse
OH, SOLUTION: We clone Lucy! Then we can have both MikexLucy and PauloxLucy! PUH-LEEZE TAESHI?

ill email it first to you before i post it on furaffinity…I would put it on my deviantart account but the dam website banned me saying that I have been trolling or something. I havent been on the account over a year so most likely someone hacked it and stole my account.
l33topwer September 24, 2010, 9:05 PM EST.
Remember people this is Paulo’s daydream he can create anything he wants, life is not always a fairytale sadly, so we still have to wait and see how Paulo fairs in real world “Paulo’s promiscuous behavior in the recent chapter seemed to have F’d him up” .
Anyways we need more Mike now, Paulo hijacked the spotlight for too many chapters .
Jaico September 24, 2010, 9:11 PM EST.
Awwww, Paulo will be sad when he returns to planet reality. So very very sad. Unless Lucy dies of AIDS on the next page or something.
Wouldn’t that be ironic, though? Hahaha…

Ok, no.. right there just messed up the whole dream sequence. She looks extremely cute saying I love you, but I’m really not satisfied with this end. But alas, this is what Paulo would expect. So I’m going have to say : nice dream overall
Nekox September 24, 2010, 10:58 PM EST.
What happened to the whole “it would have been a terrible terrible mistake” at the beginning of this day dream? o-o
Maybe… maybe Paulo got trapped. In a dream within a dream. And now he’s mistaking a dream for reality. That’s why this dream sequence has been going on for so long.
aquati September 24, 2010, 11:02 PM EST.
Paulo looks awesome… (as always tho)8-) BUT!, he looks a lot more this time.. maybe cuz he reminds me of his dad… Also; Lucy looks cute, the first time i saw her I was like “Omg is that Sue?? AKWARD” :rolleyes: but then i realize its was the future… dam i am stupid…:( lol ANYWAY, good as always Taeshi i hope u aren’t serious about the end x3 it would be the end to my favorite drama source :raise:

I can just see Paulo’s reaction once he comes out of this daydream “****!!! I should have slept with her, then we could have lived happily ever after!!!”
Cyandog187 September 24, 2010, 11:25 PM EST.
;v; I can’t wait for Wednesday honestly, but hey all PauloxLucy and MikexSandy fans, love what got provided fer ya~ I’m certainly satisfied…..=3= I still want Mike Lucy though, I shall always believe that somewhere in this world, my dream of having those two together will become reality.
And by god as my dreams sail forth unto this light of hope, I can only sit here, down in my basement with what is possibly the most uncomfortable chair in the world, and watch.

Don’t make him the only loner, thats just mean……Ok,make him a loner and then have Paulo pretend die and make him go on some mental daydream quest…. O_O don’t give him to the ****-leader….she is E-Bile….
The one and Only September 24, 2010, 11:54 PM EST.
Guys, guys, it’s not ending, it’s just the end of the daydream! o_o Taeshi’s just saying that she wants to end it here. She doesn’t mean it. xD
But you know what? It could have been like this in real life, too. Paulo just had to be a stupid push-over and go be a **** because David said so. AAAAUGGGH.

Random person who PWNS u September 25, 2010, 12:15 AM EST.
WI’m thinking when Paulo said things would go wrong, he meant the two weeks of “oh noes! she might be preggers!” or something. Best guess I’ve got.
Hoheh September 25, 2010, 12:22 AM EST.
Taeshi can end the comic when everyone graduates…just not now since they havent graduated yet.

Regulith September 25, 2010, 1:22 AM EST.
well….by me taeshi can end her comic whenever she wants….just make sure to do an epic end for, as this for this daydream for example…
And how about paulo and lucy getting older and graduating made me think about this: will the rest of the cast get older too and start their “adult” arc or do taeshi plans to keep they in their 13 - 16 years old adventures? Just a bit curious about…
OBS: in order to improve my english grammar i aks to everyone to check if there’s one or more syntax or coherence errors in my post. I would be grateful….

You can end the comic whenever you want
We might just be a bit sad.
AiGuilty September 25, 2010, 1:47 AM EST.
Once again Paulo, I ask you….how was this a “BIG MISTAKE”? He would get the girl of his dreams and only the beginning was a bit sketchy but now its double rainbow power (unless Taeshi can screw him over in one panel )

Oh, for the love of—
Guys, Taeshi isn’t ending the comic. They only said they wanted to end it here because this daydream has the happiest ending we’ve seen so far.
So stop freaking out about something that isn’t happening.
Pick Yer Poison September 25, 2010, 3:35 AM EST.
rofl @ u people.
You can’t read even though your lives revolve around a very dialogue centric comic.
Tae that was beautiful…
I’m somewhat imagining Lucy slamming Paulo’s head into a locker to wake him up… in a sad bit of irony… Of course now I know that ISN’T going to happen, because I’d have just given away the next page… what a viscous cycle… (yes viscous, as in it flows in large amounts of volume very quickly!)
This page reminds me a lot of my Lexi… Help me wish her well, she’s got a lot of stuff going on right now… =\
… sorry… back to BCB… This could have all been possible even if Paulo hadn’t rammed Lucy like a cat-jackhammer… as a matter of fact it’s David’s fault that Paulo’s in such hot water… I seriously hope David get’s his share of extremely bad fortune soon… he seems to be the only one to not get any of that…
PERMISSION TO EXECUTE!

Monday he finally pushes her down the stairs?
P.S. if it was viscous, it’d be going slowly… Ketchup/Catsup is viscous, ya dig?

PERMISSION TO EXECUTE!
Sciver September 25, 2010, 6:10 AM EST.
D’aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaawwwwwwwwwwwww. I honestly wouldn’t mind if the comic continued but still ended exactly like this. And everyone had one final group photo with all the main characters in their OTPs. LucyxPaulo, SuexMcCain, MikexSandy, AbbeyxDaisy, DavidxFlowerGirl/******’s Ghost, TessxUmmm….. Tess’ll find someone, I’m sure And all the rest. Now, let Monday arrive quickly!!!
@Sciver: I don’t think David could get into any misfortune that he couldn’t turn into a positive. I mean, on his birthday he was nearly arrested for kidnapping, truancy and ended up in a police shoot-out. He still thought it was the best day ever

Dudster September 25, 2010, 8:46 AM EST.
Also I think it would be pretty unfortunate if he finally drove Paulo over the edge and he simply said, ‘Screw you ****tard’ and stopped being his friend altogether…
Sure it’s an impossible thing I’ll never get to see, but, hey a guy can dream.
Also, most people consider 32 stab wounds to the abdomen to be slightly unfortunate…
Technically this ending is fully possible, there are after all two more years plus the end of this one. Lucy’s not going to hate him forever, nor will Tess… Mike will probably get over himself at some point in there as well… but that just shows how much longer the comic is likely to run.
Sciver September 25, 2010, 9:34 AM EST.
I just realized something, most of the time her ears are rarely sticking up, usually sideways or drooping down. I know it does stick sometimes but I wonder what “emotion” makes her do that…

maybe because something similar happened to me, dunno i kind of feel bad having to forget about a friend no matter how bad things were, anyways, at least lucy would be at peace n_n
damn you taeshi… you actually mix my feelings with these stories… you’re so awesome
roler42 September 25, 2010, 4:15 PM EST.
I like Lucy in the last Pannle i think that is how she should look all the time ^.^
Jon September 25, 2010, 4:41 PM EST.
this part is supous to be a dream, no? , and will be some historry wen sandy and mike will se againt?
vitany September 25, 2010, 4:52 PM EST.
why does this have to be a counter reality! i want it to be REAL
dana September 25, 2010, 5:06 PM EST.
THANK YOU!!!!!!!! i absoloutely hated pauloxlucy i don’t know why either….
MIKEXLUCYFOEVA September 25, 2010, 5:41 PM EST.
omg. conundrum much, or is it dilemma.
I’d hate to see the comic end, while at the same time my fave pairing won out. but even so it doesn’t seem like the end, there’s something missing, i don’t know what.
maybe the 5 or so ****ing years of drama that may or may not have happened i dunno. this is what kinda result i want but i want more of a story to lead up to it. do you get what i’m trying to say?
GodOfBrown September 25, 2010, 6:20 PM EST.
wow paulo would be regretting everything he did now
Straw September 25, 2010, 7:20 PM EST.
hey i just noticed something wered her ribbion go?
WHAT IS GOING ON
I don’t even…!
Ichiro (Strongest arm) September 25, 2010, 8:14 PM EST.
it this still paulo daydream or is this real ….? anyways i love the way lucy look. she look more better with her hair like that now all she missing is her bow
Ima Weird September 25, 2010, 8:17 PM EST.
I really don’t like MikexSandy, ‘cause I’m a huge LucyxMike shipper…but…HELL!!! PAULOXLUCY JUST TOTALLY MAKE MY DAY!!! T_T
I mean…he REALLY loves her, and has the guts to support her, even though she doesn’t love him back
and that, ladies and gentleman, is a real man…cat….whatever…
Also….grown up Lucy is super cute *.*
Chickie September 25, 2010, 8:19 PM EST.
…What Chickie said, double the PauloXLucy.
Solario the Visored September 25, 2010, 9:08 PM EST.
@ Straw Remember when Lucy first got the bow from her mother. It made her always know no matter what, she was, how should I say a female. Because she has different tastes than other girls and what not. My guess is since Paulo “filled the void” I think she doesn’t need it anymore. Or maybe she got too old for it and its more of a childhood bow. I wouldn’t be surprised if Mike didn’t wear his scarf (although he wears it because he gets cold easy, and his neck is wierd ).
Sandvich September 25, 2010, 9:46 PM EST.
@ GodOfBrown ….Like the 100s of other people didn’t do, read over what Taeshi said CAREFULLY. She is not ending the comic, just saying it could make a nice end point and on the other note she says more drama on wednesday, so yeah. It’s not over…
Sandvich September 25, 2010, 9:52 PM EST.
I love it when Taeshi says something sardonically and then everyone takes it literally.
J. Vincero (Jerk) September 25, 2010, 10:14 PM EST.
OH NOES! It’s the pink mist of REALITY!
Ruins September 25, 2010, 10:17 PM EST.
Fear the pink mist. It makes you explode.
ANinnyMouse September 25, 2010, 10:28 PM EST.
Bet this pink mist is saying: “Yo bro, daydream’s over, time to go back to your reality”
Chickie September 25, 2010, 10:47 PM EST.
It’s the pink mist of “menstrual cycle.”
J. Vincero (Jerk) September 25, 2010, 11:33 PM EST.
dude if this was the end of the comic I’d go suicide
jj September 26, 2010, 12:47 AM EST.
O-O end? WHAAAAAAT!?!?!? END!?!? I WILL KILL YOU IF YOU DO!!!! EVEN IF WE ARE ACROSS THE GLOBE FROM EACH OTHER!!!!!!! YOU KNOW! ALL MONKEY-APE ****! *starts frothing at mouth* BLAAAAAAAARGH! *flails around* *dies*
lakie September 26, 2010, 1:05 AM EST.
Did he fall asleep while daydreaming? Considering the detail that goes into his daydreams, including dreaming up a montage, why the sudden 2 year jump? Hmm, Paulo?
Future Endeavor September 26, 2010, 1:31 AM EST.
Oh! she looks like Sue :?:
BCB fan September 26, 2010, 2:29 AM EST.
Aw, I can only imagine how real-world Paulo must feel.
Rosemarie September 26, 2010, 3:19 AM EST.
Errgh… I know the pinkishness is supposed to be all romantical, but it really just makes me think of red and blood and violence being eminent.
Which would be a good twist if the thing segues back into the primary universe via the gratuitous Lucylean violence we’ve grown accustomed to.
Fortuna Majoris September 26, 2010, 3:40 AM EST.
awww i kinda feel sorry for paulo ~! he really does love lucy
Sano~ September 26, 2010, 3:58 AM EST.
this is the ending that pauloxlucy fans have been waiting for
velia September 26, 2010, 10:48 AM EST.
He is probably going to wake up and go “well **** I should have slept with her…”
Ark September 26, 2010, 11:18 AM EST.
How long was I gone?
Cody September 26, 2010, 1:05 PM EST.
Well, to say the least, I’ve bawled numerous times over the events that led up to this daydream and every part of my waking being is screaming in agony at how convoluted and wrong this path would have been for Lucy.
I must say you’ve done a very good job, m’am. I’ve cried so much I can’t even bring myself to cry any longer. You really are a good author and I can tell you this because I hate you in a good way. I never really liked seeing authors torture their characters but there’s something about you that separates you from the rest. Good show.
My heart goes out to Mike and Lucy. In my eyes they’re meant to be together and I for one cannot stand to see true love wither and die. It truly is the saddest of tragedies and I really hope Mike comes to his senses. This is the girl that was meant for him.
Sue September 26, 2010, 1:47 PM EST.
uuuUUUUGGGHHHHHHHHhhhHH!!!!! god dammit! why did this have to be a friggen day dream!?!?!?!
WAHHIIIIAFDOJFOAIJSDOFHAGD0IFJD;HO -blood vessle pops and passes out-
Mira September 26, 2010, 2:08 PM EST.
Guys, CALM DOWN!
The next chapter’s already been mostly written if I recall.
This is, unfortunately, an alternate reality that has no bearing on the actual story!
Also, about Lucy’s ears…
Cats ***** up their ears when they are interested, excited, or enjoy something. Basically when they’re happy.
Cats fold back their ears when they are upset, or when they’re trying to avoid loud noise. The degree of folding shows roughly how upset or unamused they are.
Cat’s lower their tails when they are upset as well, often they twitch it back and forth when they are angry (or excited), the more movement and speed, the more angry (or in the case of playing, the more excited)
A cat will raise it’s tail, usually with a slight cook near the top, when they are happy. The higher the tail, the better their mood.
Frightened cats will pin their ears back and wrap their tails under their thigh and around their leg.
Edit: Also, ears can be dropped slightly when in a very relaxed state… usually not the case though.
Essentially, Lucy is happy in this comic, and is rather forlorn most of the time in the rest of the comic.
Sciver September 26, 2010, 3:22 PM EST.
Oh good. All the LucyxPaulo fans are dying off naturally.
It’s like War of the Worlds in here. :awesomeface:
J. Vincero (Jerk) September 26, 2010, 3:22 PM EST.
Who’s dying off?
*tears the jerk into peaches*
Sciver September 26, 2010, 3:25 PM EST.
Oh Sciver, I’m not talking about you. I would be sad if the impending daydream conclusion virus took you.
J. Vincero (Jerk) September 26, 2010, 3:31 PM EST.
Wait………….. wheres her bow?
Levi September 26, 2010, 4:38 PM EST.

Cody September 28, 2010, 4:34 PM EST.
HAHAHAHHAHHAHAHAHAH paulo looks like his dad now lol
Aly September 28, 2010, 5:55 PM EST.
Wow……. Quite a detailed daydream just how long was Paulo standing there looking like an idiot? Paulo and Lucy are great together by the way, or was that just paulo’s humongeous daydream that made them seem that way. And also 2 people used my favorite word ( blarg) in the comments wow I can just picture people going through the comments looking for the people who used blarg. O well at least nobody knows about my other fav word faggigly gland (yes that was taken from fairly odd parents) ( tv show) anyways…. DONT STEAL MY WORD!!!!!!!
S0me001 September 29, 2010, 4:39 PM EST.
Man… this one really really screwed with me. I know how things were gonna end and everything, but to actually read that Mike went to be with Sandy and… damn, I want to kick myself.
Anono October 4, 2010, 9:33 PM EST.
Man, you gotta stop doing that , i almost died when i read “The Comic is Over”
it was like HEARTATTACKGUHDIE.
but now its like ^-^v
Lolkid October 6, 2010, 9:20 PM EST.
Wait…so they’re leaving high school or something?
I could’ve sworn they were Sophomores just a few chapters ago…
EDIT: Nevermind. I didn’t seem to catch that this entire thing was a dream. And to think I innerly raged over nothing.
entertained October 9, 2010, 3:48 PM EST.
i think if u did end it now, a LOT of people would commit mass suicide
ACDC KING October 17, 2010, 6:25 AM EST.
@Lolkid me too, i only got on the comic in july, and it would END??? well, a good things do come to an end
sadeye October 25, 2010, 4:17 AM EST.
well, wouldn’t this be an interessting daydream to have while standing in front of david looking like a moron, probebly…but this would have been a pretty great place to stop. NO! THE ADVENTURE MUST CONTINUE!
himoshira October 25, 2010, 10:09 PM EST.
-looks at my past comments-
Wow i was hyper back then.. ;-;

:C PLEASE stop even making refrences to the end of this comic i cry a little each time……………you dont want to make me cry do you Taeshi :’C
Yattsu November 3, 2010, 2:21 AM EST.
I think this is a better story line then the original.
Anon November 6, 2010, 5:19 PM EST.
OH Y GOD I SHOULD BUY STUFF I DIDN’T KNOW YOU HAD A STORE
Thank sushi it’s an alternate after all.
SushiJaguar November 18, 2010, 5:54 AM EST.
Awww! I love this chapter. I really want Paulo and Lucy to be together like at the end of this page <3 <3 If only things would have worked out just like this little daydream of Paulo’s
ShadowFox December 30, 2010, 4:33 AM EST.
lucy is prettier not looking like sue…(my opinion）
me January 6, 2011, 7:14 AM EST.
Now if only this truly happened.
Steve-O January 27, 2011, 9:21 PM EST.
This has got to be my favorite chapter of all… I’m a fifteen year old guy who has never even been in a relationship, but this chapter fricken yanked the crap outta my heart strings, and even I cried a bit at this part! *Bliss*
Zayn February 10, 2011, 12:45 AM EST.
For some reason…Lucy looks like sue
Cece February 18, 2011, 8:59 PM EST.

Subject-Delta March 10, 2011, 7:29 PM EST.
I know I’m leaving a comment on an old story, but everytime I read this page, just this page alone, something about the last panel gets to me. Really touching.
Makes me wonder if there was a girl, while in school, not counting college, that had a crush on me. I hope it wasn’t someone I knew… Then again I wasn’t in any student’s interest if I recall back then, so I’m probably just overthinking again.
I will say for Paulo, he did make the right choice by constantly rejecting her when she was in a breakdown.
Blue Sly March 26, 2011, 6:28 AM EST.
As much as I respect Paulo for manning up and rejecting Lucy while she was unstable, this page has made me a PauloxLucy fan.
Swifty April 8, 2011, 3:23 AM EST.
i love this page no matter how much i read it, it made me a pauloxlucy kinda person, just seems logical, theres too much lucyxmike drama in the air, i want this
plus, they yiffed, that should seal the deal, wait that was just a dream, fuggg!
101 May 2, 2011, 1:09 AM EST.
This page made me a HUGE! PauloxLucy fan. (Even if it WAS only a daydream…
Esmeralda May 12, 2011, 4:20 PM EST.
I agree…and not just this page
Reptilezero May 18, 2011, 10:04 PM EST.
The authors note kinda scared me with the big text. O_O

NintendoSegaSonyGuy May 22, 2011, 10:18 AM EST.
Awwwww,a sweet ending 4 a perfect day dream. I’m a LucyxPaulo lover!
Lucy May 23, 2011, 2:34 PM EST.
This alternate ending is purrrttyyy good!
Blackstar June 2, 2011, 12:39 AM EST.
This would be the first chapter I read of BCB. That definitely figures.
Anon735 June 2, 2011, 12:59 AM EST.
I’ve read this chapter a million times and I still tear up Paulo x Lucy

Holy crap, they got necks now!
When did that happen?
Boy, they would have some feisty kittens.
Fruvous September 8, 2011, 9:24 PM EST.
MANY MONTHS HAS PAST NOW, but when I first saw this page I thought that BCB was REALLY gonna end! even though I knew it was an alternate story hahahah :3 silly me
Cata :3 September 18, 2011, 11:21 AM EST.
“man” hahaha ! oh man, your commentary makes the comic twice as good!
Reiza November 15, 2011, 4:03 AM EST.
:dang it taeshi you spoiled the ending for us
1D November 16, 2011, 10:10 PM EST.
It should have went that way
paulo should’ve done her.
Emy December 28, 2011, 12:34 AM EST.
If I don’t like the ending I’m just gonna pretend this was it.
KittyCat December 31, 2011, 7:51 PM EST.
lolz ending spoiled forever
:D January 1, 2012, 3:03 PM EST.
:c I need to stop rereading this chapter all the goddamn time ;__; its too depressingly beautifuuuul…
Clare January 1, 2012, 3:52 PM EST.
did i skip a chapter or are they seniors now!?
dAbUz March 22, 2012, 6:49 PM EST.
a perfect LucyxPaulo ending, too bad this is a daydream…
I am actually disgusted that some people called Vera “Tae” in here
becauce in Filipino, Tae=Poop
Sycrin April 1, 2012, 9:29 AM EST.
Still my OTP. I may consider taking some serious drugs or maybe just bashing out my brain in an attempt to forget every event after this chapter, and then maybe convincing myself the comic ended here. It would be sweet.
Lake April 27, 2012, 5:56 AM EST.
This outcome, isn’t so bad. Just think… If Paulo had made the wrong decision, everything would have turned out great!

THIS stuff… it would have been so perfect!!!! Freezing (xD) perfect!!!! I really mean it… I ship PauloxLucy now ! Mike can go make stupid gray babies that will all wear blue stuff whit Sandy for all I care… And just so you know… I only ship one pairing per character!! So if PauloxLucy is my OTP now… any other ship involving any of them… can go sink for all I care…
x FOREVER!!!! Paulo is AWESOME!!!!!
Vanilla January 4, 2013, 3:09 AM EST.
WHOA TIME-SKIP!! And in my opinion, Lucy looked better the way she was before. Now she looks like she’s been a sweetheart her whole life. To be honest, I hate that.
I'll Eat Yourself January 8, 2013, 4:58 PM EST.
One of my favorite chapters… but what if she WAS pregnant? O_O
I think that woulda ended up pretty badly…
Anon January 12, 2013, 2:25 PM EST.
DONT FLIPPIN END THE COMIC NOW?!1!!!
paula January 27, 2013, 5:47 PM EST.
WOAH THATS LUCY? It looks nothing like her!!
Sarathewise February 1, 2013, 6:19 PM EST.
Paulo looks more like his dad now.

I WISH THIS WAS THEIR REALITY
And now back to our regularly scheduled re-read.

Hope to be something like this the end of this comic <3
Knight K May 8, 2013, 2:20 AM EST.
Dah, 18 year old Lucy looks so adorable
Cal September 26, 2013, 12:32 PM EST.
awww, i wish things could end more like this for Paulo and Lucy, rather than whats happened with them recently
Aray October 22, 2013, 2:25 PM EST.
I’ve stopped back by this chapter a few times. A lot of times. I wish it had ended here, not because I dislike he current comic, but I loved this ending. New readers beware, things will get interesting soon. Hard to believe this page is just over three years old. All this time, and it’s still my favourite chapter. The best of endings.
Paulo, you *******, why didn’t you take the impulsive choice?
A Sad Burrito February 8, 2014, 1:09 AM EST.
