The-Gray-Angel August 12, 2011, 12:00 AM EST.

That hill looks fun
Shamber August 12, 2011, 12:01 AM EST.
i smell a repeat of “another shoulder” coming on
omnireader August 12, 2011, 12:01 AM EST.
haha I may be a MikexLucy fan but i am starting to warm to Paulo. thanks again Taeshi!
Deuce Moose August 12, 2011, 12:02 AM EST.
A smiling Lucy does not seem familiar :0
Hamshi August 12, 2011, 12:02 AM EST.
I don’t see how it looks familiar O_O
Am I just crazy?
Eemia August 12, 2011, 12:02 AM EST.
well lucys looking better. maybe it was the sight of paulo urinating publicly
2Cents August 12, 2011, 12:03 AM EST.
I’m lovin the “Super Uguu Shop”.
TheLaw August 12, 2011, 12:03 AM EST.
Haha Super Uguu Shop!
vivilynx August 12, 2011, 12:03 AM EST.
I don’t like PualoXLucy and even I awwwed.
Even when she is sick she can still have a little fun.
I like how the one lady is like “WTH?!?”
teeroy766 August 12, 2011, 12:03 AM EST.
Elliot the n00b: Souppy is going to ban you next he gets on. Guess you didn’t pay attention to the rules, huh. well done
Taeshi August 12, 2011, 12:03 AM EST.
30% off at the Super Uguu Shop? What a steal!
Mikaro August 12, 2011, 12:03 AM EST.
Very reminiscent of the Another Shoulder montage. We all know what happened the last time these two were wordlessly smiling and happy like that.
Catalyst August 12, 2011, 12:03 AM EST.
@Taeshi I just got my sketch today, you did amazingly at the griffin I really enjoyed Lucy’s expression, as if shes ridden one all her life
Snowfeather August 12, 2011, 12:04 AM EST.
Uh,there having fun atleast.
I still think they are in the same town as sandy.
I wish I had the money to buy a book,an since I can’t everyone buy a book!!!
Meowth766 August 12, 2011, 12:04 AM EST.
Gosh, that’s cute. I love Paulos and Lucys expressions, and when she is all curled up in the cart, and Paulo just smiles.. Aww!
This made my day already, thank you!
Lily August 12, 2011, 12:04 AM EST.
I’m so MikexLucy, but at the same time Paulo is just agsdkgsdg;a <3
Aussie August 12, 2011, 12:04 AM EST.
Lucy is finally having a good time, it looks like. Paulo, my god, mrghh, it’s impossible not to love him <3333 And yeah, she is starting to look a little better. Having fun was the cuuuureee. ^3^
Thought they were gonna crash from that hill… xD
M August 12, 2011, 12:04 AM EST.
I guess he purchased Lucy at the Super Ugly Shop *gets glared at* err….oops I mean the Uguu Shop? Sorry its a little difficult to read the last two letters ^ ^;
At least they might make it back home as long as the montage fast forwards them home.
Darf14 August 12, 2011, 12:04 AM EST.
You should sell the cart for money buy low sell high he is a baller
dustin August 12, 2011, 12:05 AM EST.
They look to have fun, but are they at least on the way to roseville?
Please everyone, BUY THE BOOK!!!
I want to see what mike will do when he arrive to daisy and abbey.
Enialys August 12, 2011, 12:05 AM EST.
He’s a idiot
Pepe Le Pew August 12, 2011, 12:05 AM EST.

Elliot the n00b August 12, 2011, 12:05 AM EST.
Gosh darn it. Why do they have to be so cute together? No shipping, but this is my favorite “friendship” in the comic by far.
Purin August 12, 2011, 12:05 AM EST.
I love Mike x Lucy, but this is absolutely adorable, and makes me love Lucy x Paulo too.
Tonks August 12, 2011, 12:06 AM EST.
D’awww look at the little baby…isn’t he cute?
Somerandomfurreh August 12, 2011, 12:06 AM EST.
Lucy in the first panel!
Raven August 12, 2011, 12:06 AM EST.
Paulo is super awesome for this and all the other little cool things he’s done before. <3
Tickle Monster August 12, 2011, 12:07 AM EST.
This Might Be The Best Chapter Yet. .
For Me It Is Anyway. .
I Love This Page
Awesome Work Taeshi
NightFaller August 12, 2011, 12:08 AM EST.
why cant I have a Super Uguu shop in my area
Noble August 12, 2011, 12:09 AM EST.
Oh, and also, I think it says Super Uguu, to whoever asked. ^^
M August 12, 2011, 12:10 AM EST.
AAW so cute!!! >
Silvere August 12, 2011, 12:11 AM EST.
It’s super ugly shop I believe
I have one down the street
It’s run by Chinese apes that are secretly playing to take over our planet
But…. Omg Lucy is so adorable!
Cave J. August 12, 2011, 12:13 AM EST.
SUPER UGUU,S HAVING A 30% OFF DEAL THIS FRIDAY COME BY AND BRING YOUR SHOPPING CARTS ITEMS WILL BE FLYING OFF THE SHELF WE ARE ALSO HAVING A GUEST MERCHANT SO YOU DONT KNOW WHAT YOU’LL SEE!
dustin August 12, 2011, 12:15 AM EST.
Did lucy get smaller or did Paulo get bigger?
Raz August 12, 2011, 12:16 AM EST.
What would be the best song for this little montage?
At least Lucy is enjoying the return trip home.
Blue Sly August 12, 2011, 12:16 AM EST.
Taeshi… You should have drawn a cart… And put Paulo next to it with Lucy in it and have Paulo do his trademark point…then say.. “I’m checking you out…:D”
:( August 12, 2011, 12:16 AM EST.
Obviously, Paulo hit puberty.
Mr.NoName August 12, 2011, 12:17 AM EST.
oh oh i have an idea
push lucy around in a cart instead of getting her the proper medical attention she needs
wheeeeee— oh she died
*paulo then rapes the body because dead chicks are the only ******* that’d **** him more than once*
Susan August 12, 2011, 12:21 AM EST.
Laughter and fun is the best cure to any disease!
Xenos August 12, 2011, 12:21 AM EST.
This is absolutely adorable!
ALWAYS nice to see Lucy smile
Looking a little bit into the future I hope Paulo doesn’t catch whatever it is that Lucy has. Though it might be funny to see Paulo in a bit of delirium lol
Kroth August 12, 2011, 12:22 AM EST.
Lmfao Susannnn. I haz a feeling you don’t like any Lucy pairing at all?XD
:( August 12, 2011, 12:22 AM EST.
Actually, Xenos, that is penicillin. Common, but often made mistake.
Meowth August 12, 2011, 12:22 AM EST.
The song that would be playing during this montage would totally be a Queen song. “Don’t Stop Me Now”, probably.
herpaderp August 12, 2011, 12:27 AM EST.

Elliot the n00b, you should not post incentive comics on this site. We will delete them. You can view them in the BCI membership area.
Also, you can still view the comic. You just can’t post anymore. Thanks for co-operating with the “don’t comment about when your comment was posted” rule!
SuitCase August 12, 2011, 12:30 AM EST.
Lucy is smiling.
O GOD SHE’S GUNNA DIE
StraightFace August 12, 2011, 12:30 AM EST.
You can always get a forum account and discuss the chapter in the forums, though, since there’s always a huge topic about the chapter itself that gets commented on via update.
Taeshi August 12, 2011, 12:31 AM EST.
okay taeshi, im sorry. ill go do that, then. bye all
willnotusethisnameagain August 12, 2011, 12:32 AM EST.
Lucy can smile? In color, no less?
I must reevaluate the world.
Also, I’m unused to seeing BCB people with non-matching hair and fur. Am I just blind?
Bass August 12, 2011, 12:33 AM EST.
I want to go to the UGUU store.
twalker500 August 12, 2011, 12:33 AM EST.

super uguu shop…i think it’s taking over all of the loli stores.

Omg, I think PauloxLucy is turning into my BCB OTP
Day~Day August 12, 2011, 12:35 AM EST.
I can’t help but feel that bringing a shopping cart to a stop after a steep drop like that with no shoes would hurt like the dickens. 0_o
Daeva August 12, 2011, 12:35 AM EST.
How come that woman has no ears?
Random person August 12, 2011, 12:44 AM EST.
Each Lucy face, kinda creeped me out :|
darkwolf328 August 12, 2011, 12:46 AM EST.
Actually Daeva, I think they’re still going down the hill, as you can see Lucy’s hair is swaying with the air rushing through. It is sorta hard to tell though…
Blue Sly August 12, 2011, 12:49 AM EST.
In first panel, Paulo is missing a leg, im just saying
Dan Rivera August 12, 2011, 12:49 AM EST.
I just got mike one step closer… Yep… I just got a bcb book at 12:49 at nite and already cant wait for it to get here…oh… And i looove lucys face when they are going down that hill
Anthony_frost August 12, 2011, 12:51 AM EST.
Idea for next page:
The shopping cart slows to a stop in the middle of a road, as a semi comes barreling around the corner unable to stop. Paulo, in the one decent thing he will ever do in his life, pushes the cart out of the way and gets ran over by eighteen wheels of justice.
Kevin August 12, 2011, 12:52 AM EST.
i’d love to buy a book but amazon doesn’t work for me
silver August 12, 2011, 12:58 AM EST.
Its a date…awesome
DinR August 12, 2011, 12:59 AM EST.
Can I get Lucy at the super Uguu sale? But I don’t know if 30% off is enough…
Random Internet Loser August 12, 2011, 1:00 AM EST.
Hmm… I wonder if the mom is irritated at her baby, Lucy, or that there’s only 30% off at her favorite clothings store ..
Musashi August 12, 2011, 1:04 AM EST.
I’m sorry but, grocery carts are exceedingly uncomfortable. If you were to ride down a hill in one of those, your *** would be black and blue and you would not be smiling.
Magic August 12, 2011, 1:05 AM EST.
They are so adorable!
Jax August 12, 2011, 1:05 AM EST.
Who here likes the predator and terminator movies?
yoman August 12, 2011, 1:06 AM EST.
It’s been a while since I’ve seen Lucy smile like that. It’s kinda heart-warming.
ScrabMaster August 12, 2011, 1:06 AM EST.
Awww… They are adorable!! I love them as a couple!
V August 12, 2011, 1:07 AM EST.
Also, I want a Super Ugu Shop on my town xD
V August 12, 2011, 1:10 AM EST.
they seem to be having fun… wheres mike when you need him
BLAzE August 12, 2011, 1:10 AM EST.
@Kevin Dude, harsh. With how mike has treated Lucy recently I hate to admit it but he almost deserves it better than Pualo ever has.
Edit: stupid iPhone accidentally hitting the submit button before I was ready.
After I looked at it more I think these are possibly the best pictures of Lucy I have seen.
teeroy766 August 12, 2011, 1:10 AM EST.
Does anyone think it’s strange that he’s having so much fun pushing her in a cart? Is it like some sort of strange shopping cart fetish? Is Paulo trying to become a shopping cart hero?
Awww…she has the best smile, and all the clouds are gone.
kindle kat August 12, 2011, 1:11 AM EST.
Noone answered me yet…
yoman August 12, 2011, 1:12 AM EST.
Is my impression or Lucy’s boobies are getting bigger? xD
Taeshi, make the magic happen, We need moar Lucy and Paulo action, like in “Another Path”.
I dont hate mike, i mean, he is already in love with someone but his problem is he’s too direct with his words.
Paulo is what Lucy needs in his life, not an emo gray cat.
Paulo & Lucy FTW
Loki August 12, 2011, 1:13 AM EST.
WTF is a “Uguu Shop”?
That woman is hilarious. She’s like “What the hell…I wish I was that girl. God, why did I have my baby? Why did I ruin my life?” Something totally ridiculous and awful like that. I like dark humor; sue me.
Uh…I’m no scientist, but isn’t running downhill with a shopping cart dangerous? What if they hit the turtle again and Lucy went flying and bust her head open on the concrete? Call the AU “Another Shopping Cart” or something…Make it happen, Taeshi! I want to see it!
Huh…Lucy is smiling. She’s happy. I guess she can go ahead and miss the rehearsal now, don’t you think? Good God…forget about ****ing Mike for one second and focus on the guy who’s saving your *** from that lonely place in the first place!
You’re right, Taeshi; this looks VERY familiar. I believe the precedent was here: http://www.bittersweetcandybowl.com/c53/p8.html
Just a few more pages and we’ll see a spark between the two. I’m sure of it. I wonder if Lucy will kiss him once again, or if he’ll kiss her, or if it’ll be mutual and not near rape.
NintendoSegaSonyGuy August 12, 2011, 1:16 AM EST.
amazing job, as usual Taeshi^^
Drayor August 12, 2011, 1:21 AM EST.
its funny how people still think that mikexlucy is possible… i mean mike is and will be with sandy forever, no betrayal possible. Even with all that distance. The only option is that sandy may die, leaving mike alone. After so munch happiness and mike having his iphone to communicate, i guess the sad drama stuff may happen soon! ( soon meaning in 6 months lol jk no offense taeshi)
unsubscribedanonymousguy August 12, 2011, 1:28 AM EST.
Lucy is having SO much fun in that last pseudo-panel-thing. Nice out-of-frame art, by the way.
Fauxlosopher August 12, 2011, 1:29 AM EST.
that must be the best trolley ever.
WILL RANDOM MOTHER CAT BECOME A RECURRING CHARACTER?
skmojo August 12, 2011, 1:31 AM EST.
btw nice to see lucy smiling again : )
unsubscribedanonymousguy August 12, 2011, 1:32 AM EST.
Paulo’s wizzing in the bushes…just like my guy does.
Lucy’s so cute with a smile on her face. And ah mi gawd Paulo’s so tall! God puberty hit him hard. He’s like, twice his size then he was in Another Shoulder. Either that or Lucy’s shrunk.
I wanna make a lucy doll now…She’s so small and fluffeh aaaaaaaahh I can put her in my pocket and be on my way! Make her shopping cart size.
the other white meat August 12, 2011, 1:35 AM EST.
dawes, that hill looks like fun x)
jaevanne August 12, 2011, 1:37 AM EST.
yoman August 12, 2011, 1:38 AM EST.
Drama less fun… I’m stunned. Another lesson under Lucy’s coat that she can depend and socialize with others whom aren’t the first person she wasn’t shunned by. (Mike) Growing experiences, wooo, go Taeshi
Vanvoltra August 12, 2011, 1:51 AM EST.
I’m surprised Lucy didn’t throw up while riding down the hill.
TheLastCreativeName August 12, 2011, 1:58 AM EST.
Lucy doesn’t smile often enough so nice to see her enjoy herself.
Also, I want to buy a book, but I also don’t want Mike to reach his “destination”. If I buy one, can he take a step back?
FX102A August 12, 2011, 2:02 AM EST.
Going down the hill lucy looks like she is ready to kill him because that surprised her but then paulo said “admit it, it was fun!” and she said yes and laughs
DinR August 12, 2011, 2:08 AM EST.
The reason why no one’s answered you is because, this isn’t the place to discuss movie preferences, or anything besides the comics. Try the forums, they are more welcoming of such questions. (I think, I’m not sure since I don’t visit the forums). As for your question, I prefer terminator movies, but I haven’t seen any of the predator movies, so I wouldn’t be able to give a good answer. Now shoo to the forums, unless you want to talk about the page.
the other white meat August 12, 2011, 2:11 AM EST.
@yoman nobodys answering you cuz this isnt a ****ing chatroom
2Cents August 12, 2011, 2:16 AM EST.
paulo looks awkwardly cute in the last panel
Memory Anemone August 12, 2011, 2:19 AM EST.
Aw that’s adorable, I love it when Lucy smiles oh yeah of course the happy face is Sandy the source of alot of her frowning
Dawnest August 12, 2011, 2:23 AM EST.
so much paulo/lucy fanservice in this arc oh lawd.
WyldKAT August 12, 2011, 2:24 AM EST.
the first destination?
wouldn’t the 450 mark be his third destination?
350, 400, 450…
well, i’m curious… how far will this comic be going, exactly?
all the way through high school? are they going to college? i wonder if mike and lucy will ever be together… if they do get together, i certainly hope you make up for all the lucy+paulo moments, by having mike and lucy jump in bed together straight away.
seriously… i was hoping they’d hit that turtle again and send lucy flying out of the cart into a river, and paulo smashing his face into the ground, possibly breaking his neck or something.
…yeah, i still hate paulo, and i’m really angry with lucy.
Thanatos August 12, 2011, 2:33 AM EST.
I Like where this is going :3
Noble_6 August 12, 2011, 2:38 AM EST.
PAULO IS ADORABLE LUCY IS ADORABLE THIS ARC IS ADORABLE AWWWW
even though she peed on him and all that jank
forgive and forget
isabelle August 12, 2011, 2:42 AM EST.
Don’t want Mike to reach Sandy, but I wanna buy a book. He needs to be miserable cuz he’s been a jerk since the first day of school this year.
Crystal August 12, 2011, 2:44 AM EST.
This page is adorable.
I’d actually buy a book if I wasn’t saving money. Maybe on my birthday.
Cheebs August 12, 2011, 2:47 AM EST.
This page is sooo cute!(: adorbzz
fijikitten August 12, 2011, 2:50 AM EST.
I was a mike x lucy fan but I like paulo much better now he’s not a jerk like mike.
Aria August 12, 2011, 2:54 AM EST.
Crystal, how can you say mike has been a jerk?
lucy has been the one always treating him like ****, and everytime he tried getting with her, she turned him away!
in one flash back in the “pillow talk” chapter, mike made the first move and kissed her, sharing their first kiss together, and she kicks him out.
then during the chapter where they go to the movies, mike tries sharing his feelings with her again, and she abandons him and slams the door in his face.
lucy has ALWAYS been the bitch, and never treated mike nicely at all.
you need a good beating to clear that head of yours…
lucy only actually confessed her love to mike LONG after she drove him away, and expected him to give up on sandy after she had already assured mike that they were still a couple.
not only that, but then when she doesn’t get the reaction she wanted from mike, she goes straight to paulo and has sex with him… lucy should be miserable for the rest of her life, and paulo should be dead.
Thanatos August 12, 2011, 2:54 AM EST.
wow someone needs to be banned for flaming o.o
Aria August 12, 2011, 2:55 AM EST.
huh August 12, 2011, 2:57 AM EST.
Not that I agree with his harsh words or anything, but you were sorta askin’ for it, saying that a character is a jerk. I think that categorizes as ‘flamebait’, doesn’t it?
Z August 12, 2011, 3:09 AM EST.
who is flaming?
i am simply tired of everyone attacking mike, even the mike supporters are giving up on him and calling him a jerk, it makes no sense!
besides, even if i wanted to edit my post and get rid of the harsher things i’ve said… i can’t!
there is no option to edit… anywhere.
so, if veronica decides to hate me now, despite the much, MUCH harsher and worse things i’ve said on past chapters, before i started actually liking this comic and supporting it by buying the book… by the way, i paid almost $70 for my book… i’ll be even more confused.
i LIKE this comic… i just hate the paulo supporters/mike haters.
three updates a week doesn’t seem like enough… i need to know what happens to these stupid couples!
gah… my blood pressure.
Thanatos August 12, 2011, 3:12 AM EST.
Maishul August 12, 2011, 3:17 AM EST.
Look Thanatos, I agree with you that Lucy’s got issues, but Mike wasn’t exactly being polite about the rejection, let’s face it. Even though I don’t think that he at all is wrong in his actions, I at least can admit his attitude has been negative as of late… well other than the phone thing.
Anyways, I don’t get why you hate Paulo so much. Sure he acts like a pretentious guy, but his jerkishness is only skin deep. He’s proven time and time again that he has a great deal of integrity and that he truly cares for his friends. Also, i don’t know what comic you were reading, but Lucy and Paulo did not do the deed. She came onto him, and he behaved like a complete gentlemen and REFUSED to take advantage of her.
SgtRed August 12, 2011, 3:23 AM EST.
Also there is totally an edit button, I’m looking at it right now! HAHA, victory.
SgtRed August 12, 2011, 3:26 AM EST.
Good Sir Thanatos.
This is a webcomic, do not get over emotional because is silly and useless, second they had no sex, read your chapters better and get your information straight, third Paulo is only expressing his old crush on her and has all the rights to do so, fourth Lucy as annoying as she can be was just acting that way because she is a girl who had 13 when that happened. Emotionally she was afraid and rather scared that their relationship might change, that and she could have been not interested in a romantic relationship.
While Lucy is a bitch to Mike, Mike ended up being a jerk to her, both not dealing with the issue maturely, as every other teenager..
If you are going to be insulting someone, insult them other place, but here you will respect the others. Okay? Thank sir, good bye.
HappyFabian August 12, 2011, 3:30 AM EST.
there isn’t an edit button on my end… i’ve searched every inch!
someone told me the edit button appears near your name, but i didn’t see anything there, either.
paulo has also proven to be the one usually putting his friends in trouble, and failing to help them when it REALLY counts.
lets see, in “confrontation”… he pussed out, literally… and lucy almost got raped, it wasn’t until MIKE stepped in to kick *** that she was saved.
also, on the vacation with tess, paulo and david almost killed lucy by breaking that rock bridge… mike is the one who nearly died just to save her.
paulo’s extremely few, extremely weak “good” qualities hardly make up for him almost getting lucy killed and raped on a few occasions.
oh, then there was the beginning of the comic, when he took her skateboarding and almost killed her there, too… who saved her?
Thanatos August 12, 2011, 3:33 AM EST.
Thantos you do realize why lucy acted like a bitch to mike was because she was masking her true feelings for him with bitchyness its basically the same thing with the grade school boy bullying a girl he likes because he doesnt know how to express his feelings basically same concept but yea paulo is actually a good guy abit of an idiot but all and all a good person and to end this off great job with another page
Drake Blue August 12, 2011, 3:41 AM EST.
super uguu shop UGUUUUUUU
Malikat August 12, 2011, 3:41 AM EST.
Aww, Paulo’s last face is adorable.
Sam August 12, 2011, 3:42 AM EST.
Okay, I just figured out how the edit button works because I used it to fix my emoticon. It only works on your most recent post within ten minutes of posting it, and it does appear next to your name.
I don’t deny that he failed to face his fears in confrontation, but that’s the thing about phobias… they’re friggin intimidating. Not fun at all.
And of course I don’t deny the rock bridge incident either. But I’m sure you remember that in the incident that started Lucy’s fear of water it was Paulo that saved her from death. Her and Mike.
SgtRed August 12, 2011, 3:52 AM EST.
…I just wanna say PauloxLucy ftw.
And adorable. <3 B’aww, Paulo really does always try to go above and beyond for Lucy (not that Mike hasn’t or anything either). They both get credit as far as I’m concerned. Lucy is really lucky to have such dedicated friends. C:
In other new, Lucy looks a lot happier than she did earlier. <3 I wonder if their parents are freaking out yet. o_o
Yaschiri August 12, 2011, 4:03 AM EST.

Thank you soooooo much for this strip it really brightened my day keep at ur awesome art skills luv ur comic god I am just gushing!!!!
Mezmo August 12, 2011, 4:10 AM EST.
Wouldn’t the cart have problems to roll down well on a grass ground?
I mean, it’ll roll with a lot of shaking and maybe even fall over or something.
Lucy looks kinda small in the first 2 panels, but really cute tho’ if you ignore the fact that she has high fever and supersick. wind is not good for the sick D< *just had a summerflu last week*
AND THEN JASMINE SEES THEM DUNDUNDUUUUN

yay August 12, 2011, 4:18 AM EST.
i think its our responsibility as bcb fans to petition this comic for syndication. Lucy and friends need to go to hollywood

Funny how everyone falls in love with Paulo during a Paulo and Lucy arc.
Why are there 4 Lucys and 4 Paulos? Why does the ground look like an MC Escher painting? I miss outlined frames…

DFA August 12, 2011, 12:16 PM EST.
Ok hate me for sayin this but… the only reason that Taeshi made this arc where Paulo and Lucy hang out the entire day is to appeal to the PauloxLucy fans. As obvious as that is I doubt they’ll become a couple, if so it wont last. I bet Lucy wont remember half of there little escapade together since shes all sick. She’d prolly want to forget it since she threw up and ****** all over Paulo. I’m not a MikexLucy fan, but like all of you, I’m just interested in the part when Lucy finally finds her true love. I wonder how much long Taeshi will drag this fiasco out xD
BlackStealth08 August 12, 2011, 1:11 PM EST.
tae some comments are annoyingly big, i think a size or characters limit would be cool ‘couse some specific guys dont know what “in moderation” means
not you BlackStealth08, i’m talking about people whose comments are more than twice your comment

“Okay, I just figured out how the edit button works because I used it to fix my emoticon. It only works on your most recent post within ten minutes of posting it, and it does appear next to your name.”
i don’t know how many times i have to say it… there is NO edit button for me, i checked near my name on every single post i make, immediately after i post, just to see if i could find it… NOTHING is there.
i don’t know how much clearer i can be, other than dragging people’s asses into my home just to show them on my own PC that there is no edit button.
now, that is the last i’m bringing that up, because it’s obvious no one even pays attention.
…i’ve heard people mention it, but is paulo REALLY ******* in the bushes in the last panel?
if so, why is lucy laughing/smiling about it?
again, i am still stunned that veronica didn’t throw that turtle in for them to hit and go flying… usually it’s pretty reliable, always there ruining good times and making life harder on these kids.
that turtle has severely disappointed me.
oh, right… one more question.
what the HELL is an “uguu” shop?
i could’ve sworn it said “super ugly shop” when i first saw it.

CLEARLY I need to steal a shopping cart. And make my friends push me around in it. Because hopy crap that looks like soooooooo much fun.
Rosemarie August 12, 2011, 7:36 PM EST.
@Thanatos Uh…no I think the last part is Lucy looking back at him and it also shows Paulo looking at her too. At least that’s how I see it. And the reason his arms are like that probably is because he’s holding the bar on the shopping cart.
DarkCrystal828 August 12, 2011, 7:37 PM EST.
OMG I will never see the first panel as normal AGAIN! Taeshi did you get lazy or something 8U? You will understand me once you read this…..
PEG LEG PAULO HAHA or amputee paulo
what has been seen can not be unseen. (O_O)
BlackStealth08 August 12, 2011, 7:45 PM EST.
I don’t think we have to see this in a LucyxMike vs. LucyxPaulo light. I’m really hoping this is gonna end with a dissolution of some of the LucyxPaulo tension.
I don’t think she should be with either personally. Mike has a classic martyrdom complex, he would always keep taking the pain while complaining in a halfhearted way so it was never resolved, and then when given the chance, blow-up about it and pretend your so great. Also the whole Sandy thing is a delusion on both sides. They haven’t actually hung out in how many years? During the times in your life that you change the most? Occasional letters and phone conversations aren’t enough, people are changing to much and to quickly at that part of their life. Mike and Sandy don’t really know each other any more. They can’t love each other, they just love the idea.
Paulo is the hero, in my eyes, hes a bit brainless and immature at times, playfully acts like a jerk, but really is rather sensitive and noble in the end. But him and lucy… I just don’t see it.
Can’t it just be friendship?
The Master of Modesty August 12, 2011, 8:07 PM EST.
@ The Master of Modesty
Here here! Friendship for all!
I’m a little tired of people saying “it should be MikeXLucy or PauloXLucy” as well. Just read the comic, okay? It’s Taeshi’s comic and she’ll go in whatever direction she likes with it!
LostInPhilly89 August 12, 2011, 8:17 PM EST.
me explicare mejor en mi idioma original,entre el conflicto de lucy y paulo recuperar la confianza y su buena amisgas,talvez mas seria algo muy muy lindo.
pero lo uqe si noto esque entre el rol de lucy y mike casi no sucede mucho para que mike cambie de idea por sandy,aunque si me gustaria llegar a ver en un futuro como mike se fija en lucy sin duda seria una relacion con muchos baches pero se luciria bastante.
LucyxPaulo lo veo bien pero seria algo esperado y sensillo ademas quien no se imaginaria que paulo se fije en otra chica facilmente aunque lucy sea su primer amor.
LucyxMike igual seria algo esperado sin embargo con tanto de que arreglarse entre ambos es una relacion tan enriquesedora en emociones que no me cansaria de verlos por una actitud tan cambiante de ambos.
un excelente trabajo y me encanta! ahorrare para comprar mi propio libro! hehe xD.
PD: MikexSandy no me agrada porque un amor a distancia sin ver algo realmente por lo que sandy este con mike pero no niego que me intriga saber que sucederia si aparece sandy,que sucedera con lucy realmente >_< que adoro!.

Zeffren August 12, 2011, 9:44 PM EST.
@ The master of modesty
I, too, agree with your theory, MM, but to truly stop all the mike x Lucy and Paulo x Lucy, there should be alternate endings to this sieries. Like, the real end chapter, then the pairings like mike x Lucy, then Paulo x Lucy.
…………IS ANYONE EVEN READING THIS?!?!

i only support paulo lucy because lucy needs a hero. She acts tuff but once in depreshion she needs a man to take care of her. Did i mention paulo reminds me of me lol what we want the trophy girl even if she’s a pain in the ***. I get mixed feelings to and made the same disions as him. Some times i want the girl that i can just relate to like his gf. Lifes complicated ahhhh Paulo u take it one step at a time brother

Effie August 13, 2011, 3:01 AM EST.
She doesn’t need a hero., she needs a friend. A relationship is always nice but unnecessary. Obviously I hope she finds one one day (that sounds weird when discussing a comic but…), she needs friends more. The crazy gruff semi-depressed antisocial types are usually helped by that. I should know, friends keep you sane, and eventually drunk, which is about as good happy when happiness can’t be found. Relationships are nice, but the drama here is too much for Lucy’s type. Us asocial people have a hard enough time dealing with people in a easy going setting, drama is just too much to handle.
(This of course assumes a lot about Taeshi’s method of development for these characters. Obviously I’m talking about people, so if the author has no significant familiarity with the asocial then the decisions Lucy makes are based on a different psychology and my point is completely moot. Lets just keep reading?)

Tah person w/ babeh is not happeh
lol words r funneh *snrrrrrrk*
Aries August 13, 2011, 6:17 AM EST.
personally..I’m not sure what I ship.
At first it was all MikexLucy 4EVAR…then things changed, it then went to PauloxLucy then LiamxLucy (mildly) and I am curious where this friendship with Augustus is going..but I don’t trust him considering what I’ve seen of him.
In the end I just want Lucy to be happy.
Though I don’t think I’ll ever ship MikexLucy again for multiple reasons.
1. Mike’s deluded himself into thinking that his ‘over the phone’ relationship is REAL when it’s not…like other people here keep stating they’ve never met eachother in person for YEARS
2. Lucy kinda screwed it up with the whole ‘jerkface’ thing, I know she did it to cover up her feelings but that sorta thing doesn’t bode well with men since she was giving him mixed messages.
3. How he rejected her. I know he had a few reasons to do so but still, it was pretty bloody harsh.
and finally 4. his behavior of late. lately he’s done NOTHING to support her and has childishly ignored Lucy as if she doesn’t exist at all. Then he he thinks that after shoving her away for several weeks that he’s allowed to make judgements of her and her life http://www.bittersweetcandybowl.com/c64/p5.html he has NO RIGHT to judge her or think his ‘appraisal’ of her decisions matter when he’s outright IGNORED her for weeks.
Don’t get me wrong, I do not hate Mike, I just think he’s acted pretty jerkish and made ****** decisions like Lucy. unless something drastically changes I don’t think I’ll be shipping MikexLucy again.
Moviefreek August 13, 2011, 6:21 AM EST.
to be honest i don’t get Paulo haters or even Mike haters (even though i am one of those) Because after reading lots of comments Paulo is actually a pretty good guy who saved Lucy’s life once (the drowning incident!) oh ya mike 2 and he didn’t have sex with her when she begged him to!
The reason he cudn;t help wen lucy almost got raped was because the barking incident and i mean who doesn’t have a crazy scarey childhood experience that haunts them i mean C’MON give the guy a break
and mike haters:
He has only been a jerk recently cuz he hasn’t felt appreciated. And thats another thing hes only been a jerk RECENTLY look back at older comics and see what other completely NOT jerky things hes done i mean this guys got lots of patience to deal with lucy all these years i mean what a nice guy i doubt a sing ONE of you cud have the patience to deal with someone like her
plz don’t call me weird just a kid sick o’ haters
Aries August 13, 2011, 6:57 AM EST.
and a hater comment about mike im gunna post right after trying to tell off haters lol is that mike needs to stop with his goddamn dreams of sandy and get into the real world i mean srsly lol im weird

Aries August 13, 2011, 8:58 AM EST.
I believe now is the appropriate time to say that Lucy might actually have something with Paulo, that is if he leaves Jazz. Or they could just be epicly close friends like they have been for a while.
Lucy looks so *cough* cute in the shopping cart. Lucy’s smile looks somewhat odd in the last panel though, I know she’s sick but I think it’s her whiskers-beard thing. Her right whisker beard thing is in front of her face in the perspective as opposed to it being on the side of her face or behind like it usually is.
Vulpinewolf August 13, 2011, 10:01 AM EST.
@Aries No, they’re only stupid if they’re fake and the people involved don’t have enough loyalty for the person they’re dating. And correct me if I’m wrong, but as of late, they’re being pretty damn loyal to one another.

Love the Paulo x Lucy pairing - first started reading the comic during 59. Another Path and I adore how affectionately he thinks of Lucy. Reminds me of me if I had the balls to speak to girls.
Lucy is definately going to have some grill marks on her backside from that trolley, I just pray its not too rusty.
LGanon August 13, 2011, 11:33 AM EST.

Myu August 13, 2011, 7:53 PM EST.
Myu, I believe the more likely out-come is that Jasmine will have time for Paulo, but Paulo will shut her down real harsh-like, and just go for Lucy. It’s going to Scott and Knives aaallllll over again.

This is my first time posting
I i beleive that Snooty Gent could be right at the same time
he could dump her and try to get closer to lucy since they both have a crush
on each other.
DEMONX August 13, 2011, 9:59 PM EST.
Awww even Lucy’s having fun. Paulo has a really good father face. Ha the pink mom is like, “What an ugly baby.” Also, if Paulo is able to hang on like that, is he lighter than both Lucy and the cart combined?
Super Uguu Shop.
Also, since I can’t get an account, I would like to express my deepest gratitude to you guys for my sketch and book. They are both better than I ever could have hoped for, especially the sketch. frames
JC August 13, 2011, 10:14 PM EST.
Uhhh, you guys, Paulo isn’t wizzing in a bush, he’s pushing the cart.
Tae was being creative and it looks like it shows them how they see each other. On Paulo’s picture, your kind of looking up at him, the way Lucy would see him. And on Lucy’s side, your looking down on her in the cart, the way Paulo see’s her.
MissCaitlyn August 13, 2011, 10:54 PM EST.
And the thing with Mike & Lucy. IT’S BOTH THEIR FAULTS.
And why do people hate on Paulo? Cause he’s a perv?
It’s not really his fault, remember? He was taken aside by some older kids when he was only about 12, and they made him that way. All he wanted to do was get Lucy to like him.
And underneath everything, all he really is, is a faithful friend and a big sweetheart.
PS, EVERYBODY MAKES MISTAKES, EVERYBODY HAS THOSE DAYS.
Even Paulo, man.
MissCaitlyn August 13, 2011, 10:59 PM EST.
OH YEAH JUST 1 MORE THING.
DON’T COMPLAIN ABOUT THE PHYSICS OF THE COMIC.
IF PAULO WANTS TO PUSH THE BACK OF A SHOPPING CART DOWN A STEEP GRASSY HILL,
CAUSE THEY’RE TALKING CATS.
MissCaitlyn August 13, 2011, 11:01 PM EST.
I hope Lucy dies because of his stupidity then, Caitlyn. When someone is sick, you take them to the hospital, not push them around in a cart like it’s a derby.
Susan August 13, 2011, 11:10 PM EST.
Man, this is delicious cuteness. I wanna huggle! I wanna huggle LUCY!
@ The two above me. Hostility must be a fetish or something.
@Susan, Paulo is not doing anything like a derby. He’s just trying to get his drowzy friend, who basically took a trip out of town without thinking, home. She’s not good for walking right now, so he’s doing the leg work for her.
@Caitlyn. Three separate comments in sequence? The comments visible without looking for them about your complaints… They aren’t there. What are you talking about?
@Rager(s): I have yet to attack anyone in any way. It might be a bit telling if someone attacks me for mentioning honest concerns about comments. And so it begins.
Hoheh August 14, 2011, 1:37 AM EST.
So guys, I heard that you might be raging a bit. I’d like to mention that this is a web comic, and that shouting your poorly strewn together arguments is not going to impress anyone, lest of all Taeshi.
If someone thinks poorly of the comic, you won’t change their mind. same goes for the other team.
One thing before I go. Look right up there. ^ the second thing addressed is to not use this area as a chat room. if you’ve got opinions that you just have to emote, go to a forum somewhere.
I’ve got your back, Hoheh. People can be annoying.
(PS, when I said ^, it was in reference to when you’re typing your angry messages, ragers.)
Keith_Z August 14, 2011, 1:44 AM EST.
AWWW!!! So cute! I’ve loved the idea of LucyxPaulo since I saw the very first chapter and I’ve been wishing for them to get together. So when ever even a page is like this I seriously get all giddy with joy. ROFL I’m compleatly serious

Vanilla August 14, 2011, 3:52 AM EST.
I was trying to clear up a bit of confusion & make a few points. And as I was scrolling through the comments, everything I talked about was there. Trust me.
And the three separate comments were because I kept forgetting I had more to say. And the edit button sometimes freezes my computer.
MissCaitlyn August 14, 2011, 3:58 AM EST.
PEG LEG PAULO, Once you see it you cannot unsee (hint hint first panel)
@ Kevin, lol you’re a MikexLucy fan aren’t you, tho ur most likely right about the fact that Paulo would risk his life like that, but hes too much of a BAMF to let himself get run over. He’d do sum cool move to avoid it
lol this is the 3rd time i’ve commented on this specific comic
BlackStealth08 August 14, 2011, 4:49 AM EST.
She’s cold and she’s cruel,but she knows what she’s doin’. She pushed me in the pool At our last school reunion She laughs at my dreams, but I dream about her laughter Strange as it seems she’s the one I’m after
‘cause she’s bittersweet-candybowl
She knocks me off of my feet
And I can’t help myself
I don’t want anyone else
She’s a mystery
She’s too much for me
But I keep comin’ back for more
She’s just the girl I’m lookin’ for
Its so there song lol
Justsomecritic August 14, 2011, 6:50 AM EST.
With all this Paulo and Lucy bonding going on in the recent chapters, I think shes genuinely going to fall for him. She “likes” him, but maybe it’ll escalate to “love”.
Of course, in the making of that emotional decision, she’ll be conflicted with thoughts about Mike, and his recent behavior towards her and stuff
Sandvich August 14, 2011, 7:12 AM EST.
Dear master of modesty, I couldn’t agree more. She does need a friend. Like i said b4 i realy relate to paulo. Can be cocky yet trys to do the right thing. Any minut that he can spend with her makes him feel like a million bucks though lucy feels worthless due to her bi polor depreshion. I lived this tale of bitter sweet candy lol. I had a mike, a daisy, david, lucy ext……… I’m just saying she needs him. Heck if they r lucky anoff that friendship will blossom and she will finnaly have the confidence that with him or not she can get by. Lucy is strong. She doesn’t like to put her feelings out there because she is scared of rejection. She played the game all in like a game of poker and lost. Got burned by mike. Can’t blame mike though. I’d get tired of waiting too. I c him and sandy as an illusion and mike will regret the friendship lost by lucy. This is an awsome series and lucy might end up with mike, who knows? I personaly hope for more drama to keep this series running for a long time, and more books. The Author as i’ve said be4 realy knows human er….cat behavior and the drama of highschool mixed with superb phycology. I believe in strong woman…. i also believe strong woman sometimes need a man. A man can also be there friend for life so on and so forth. Point is i think its cute and though this is all for fun and all….i love this site and the Authors work. I’m a big fan and follow all the way in support. O…..and i realy hope jazzy catches them in a compromising position ……in a nut shell, its a comic its all fun. Yet this is kinda fun analysing it lol
Justsomecritic August 14, 2011, 7:16 AM EST.
The Master of Modesty… or “The MoM”, since you sound like such a lecturer.
paulo isn’t a hero… a hero doesnt nearly kill a friend, let alone the girl of his dreams, on several occasions.
oh, and going on about mike and sandy like that… total ********.
people can be apart for years and still be just as much in love with each other as they were before the seperation, just because you personally have never seen it, doesn’t mean it’s impossible.
thoughts like that are which make this world impossible to live in.
this is a comic about love and drama, the characters are going to end up in pairs by the end, i’m sure of that.
mike is either going to end up with sandy or lucy, or possibly another girl that steps in at some point… paulo i’m unsure of because he can’t seem to keep his apple stem and grapes in his pants… or fur, rather.
actually, maybe paulo will end up with syphilis.
Thanatos August 14, 2011, 7:18 AM EST.
ya what thanatos said lol….can’t we all just get along every opinion is valid…..ah **** it, who wants some lol………BRING IT ON! WOOOHHAHAHA
Justsomecritic August 14, 2011, 7:24 AM EST.
O and i wrote that because master of modesty didn’t like what i wrote scroll up….i’m not fighting but if no one followed that then god help us oy
Justsomecritic August 14, 2011, 7:34 AM EST.
actually, Justsomecritic, strong women don’t always need a man.
some people are absolutely fine with being single for their entire life, i’m one of them, and i know woman who isn’t interested in a partner at all.
again, you people have no idea what you’re talking about most of the time, you think everything is so black and white, but i know things that would surprise most of you.
lucy may grow stronger from all of this pain and confusion, and may end up deciding to be alone, who knows?
this comic could have 200 chapters for all we know, maybe more… maybe things won’t turn out so simple.
then again, this comic is about ignorant kids, so i suppose i shouldn’t expect them to transcend superficial needs.
paulo especially, how many girls has he screwed?
let’s see, first he had sex with tess, even if it wasn’t “all the way”, heavy petting is still sex in my eyes.
then he had sex with lucy, again, maybe not “all the way”, but still sex all the same… except in “another path”, where he really did go all the way with her.
then he had sex with jessica, and then rachel… all the way.
the only scene paulo was involved in that i actually liked, was during the vacation when everyone thought he and mike had sex, because everyone’s expressions were priceless.
lucy still has that obsession with mike, since she wants to get to the rehearsal just so she can kiss him… probably just so she can pretend to hate it, and then treat him like trash in the end, again.
that’s another thing… lucy doesn’t put her feelings out there because she’s afraid of rejection, but then she constantly rejected mike when he put his feelings out there, and she gets upset when she’s finally on the rejecting side?
she has no right… she deserves all the pain she gets.
Thanatos August 14, 2011, 7:49 AM EST.
I’ve really started getting addicted to this comic. I’d love to be pushed in a shopping cart.
Guy at store: “Okay, what is this?”
Me: “I cost $25.99.”
Emmy August 14, 2011, 8:07 AM EST.
But who entirely is right when they’re not sure about themselves? If you think about it, Lucy was probably struggling with unrequited emotions since Sandy first came and went. She didn’t want to get too close to Mike, lest that happen again. She’s grown up confused, in love but unable to fulfill it out of fear.
And not just fear of rejection, but fear of hurting Mike or Sandy, who were both her dear friends.
And on the topic of Paulo, I need to give him credit. Since Jasmine came along, he’s changed for the better. He’s stuck to his promise to take it slow with her and has actually become a likable, respectable man; not some egotistical playboy with a mild superiority complex.
You’re looking at only the negatives and, even then, only on the least broad scope you can possibly find. However, I do agree with you on the idea of Lucy growing strong. I could see her venturing out, remaining a lone, individual woman… Or, better yet, finding a love further down the road. Not someone she needs to rely on, but someone to simply share life with her and bring about good times.
In the end, we can only broaden our views and look at this from all angles. We can’t create the story, nor can we see into the character’s minds. Assuming Lucy did those things without a reason is a step too far. And the same goes for Paulo. People have done more reckless things when lost in the throes of sorrow.
EternalOne August 14, 2011, 8:08 AM EST.
Oh, no! I can’t unsee the peg legged Paulo!
BJMcG August 14, 2011, 9:12 AM EST.
Oh, I so need to get in on this “who’ll end up with who” and psychoprofiling thing you long-winded types have got going on.
It’s highschool drama. Realistically none of the relationships will work out in the long run. I know it’s a comic and it’s not realistic because they’re talking cats, so probably some relationships will work out and there’ll be resolution for the OTL stuff and all that. But, seriously, this whole conversation just puts me in mind of the end of Skins season 2 (Original, superior, UK version). I won’t spoilers it, but… high school ends. People move away. Stuff happens.
I’m totally on board with the idea that Lucy should end up alone. She has serious co-dependency issues she needs to sort out and I don’t see her and Mike working out without some massive change to each of them, they’re just so obviously and massively wrong for each other right now. Basically, my vision of an awesome ending would be Lucy finishes school and moves far, far away to Europe or something to find herself or some **** like that. Maybe Greenland.
Wow, I think I just realised that I don’t like Lucy. Hm… yep. I dislike her. She’s an annoying teenaged girl who thinks everything is forever. Maybe she’ll grow up as the chapters continue and stop being such a… female anatomy. Be more like Tess, Lucy.
Paulo won’t end up with Jasmine, either, that’s a no-brainer. But for him to be lumped with the “I’m so helpless but don’t help me” Lucy just seems like it’d be a cruel twist of fate (aka Taeshi). Look at Lucy, the only reason this story arc is even happening is because she’s so focused on being with Mike that she’s overlooking her own wellbeing. Paulo’s always been the nice guy she ignores, while Mike’s the nice guy she mistreats.
BJMcG August 14, 2011, 12:00 PM EST.
@Thanotos: You count heavy petting as sex? Seriously? I’d hate to live in
the repressed corner of the world you come from!
By my (and, I’d venture, most people’s) count, Paulo has had sex a total of two times. Both times were initiated by the girls, not by him. Both (older) girls were using him to get to Tess. By being an adolescent male presented with an opportunity for ‘uncomplicated,’ ‘consequence-free’ sex, Paulo has only demonstrated a lack of foresight - as a teenager, that’s kind of par for the course. He’s done nothing wrong, and any harm he’s caused has been by accident. He’s basically just a bit thoughtless. The fact that Lucy getting them into this predicament by getting on the bus when Paulo got distracted showboating kinda makes my point.
I reckon at the end of this chapter Jasmine’ll accuse him of being thoughtless, too. Doesn’t make him a dick, though. Just adolescent (and definitely not deserving of being killed by a speeding truck).
I’m a long-winded type, too.
BJMcG August 14, 2011, 12:10 PM EST.
Anyone else notice that the random passer in the first panel has no ears?
Just sayin’ n.n
Ruin August 14, 2011, 2:18 PM EST.
Wow thanks master of modesty. He started this debate. Ehem. Like i said be for this is a comic so every one is open to opinion. But now that were in to it let me clear something up. When i said she needs a man, i ment it like u’d say: she don’t need no boy she needs a man. I Think lucy is better by her self right now. The age they r all in emotions and feelings go up and down like a rollor coaster.
As for Paulo ya, just like me when he met jazzie he changed. He was always charming but it can upset people at times men and women. In my life girls liked me. If i dated them and hurt them i’m an *******. If i let them off easy, i’m an *******. So when u reach a point where your not trying to be the ****, it comes accross more noble. My ex gf and i 1 year and a half, people saw the change in me. I have a friend just like lucy and she was not happy. I’m curous to c lucy go down the path the girl i know did. She could turn into a phsyco, but i’m rutting for her to become independent again. One problem though…….its this guy He’s either going to get her back the way she was or **** her up to where lucy becomes like how tess used to be. I claim to know nothing i think this sereies has perked our interests. Y else would we debate on it. Lol i beg u people though….lets not turn into twyhards about this. Lets not be Bitters. Any way as for the great author and artest. c how much we love your work.
Justsomecritic August 14, 2011, 3:04 PM EST.
U know i just read what one person said and i can’t give them credit because i’m not looking for it again, but someone metioned there should be alternate endings. That be so kewl There is a game out there called cathrine. Where u get to pick your ending based on decions. 2 girls. He either goes with his temptaion or relizes what he had all alonge. So as much as i love Paulo x Lucy, i got a pretty good feeling mike and lucy will patch things up and have a chance. OO OO OOOOO even better lucy should just walk away smiling into the sunset with neither of them. ooooo OOOOO OOOOOO or maby walk away with: a DRAMATIC MUSIC PLEASE DUN DUN DUN HIM =======> …. who knows
Justsomecritic August 14, 2011, 3:17 PM EST.
@Justsomecritic - look, Taeshi herself said that there’d be two endings…
Cam August 14, 2011, 3:43 PM EST.
That would make the answer to the question on the FAQ page “Do Mike and Lucy end up together?” make sense. (Did that make any sense at all?)
I think that we should just go along for the ride and try to enjoy wherever this comic takes us. ^_^
Rosemarie August 14, 2011, 4:35 PM EST.
FFCat ends up gay for Abby.
Paulo+SleuthmasterSniffSniff steal Mike’s scarf and run off into the sunset.
Sandy becomes worn out of being a model and hits the bars. A lot.
Lucy is Tess’ long lost sister. And they fight to the death. In mud.
Its the only ending I’ll accept.
Dizzle August 14, 2011, 4:55 PM EST.
I don’t know if I like all the Paulo x Lucy from lately, but I have to say that Paulo has shown amazing character development. Once I thought Lucy was too good for him. Now I’m not sure that’s my opinion anymore.
The one “Paulo trait” I’m curious to see worked on in the comics is his sheer terror of barking. I know childhood trauma can be tough to recover from and that the guy’s still a boy (ok, a sophomore… whatever) but, really, it would kick major *** if he could get a grip on his phobia for the sake of something important.
And, just for the fun of shipping, this something could be Lucy. Or Tess. Heck, it could be both, the mixed signals would be fun to sort out for months afterwards.

However, the number of crossings on the cart are wonderfully consistent.
