Damnit, and here I was sure he was talking about Katie…
Purin December 28, 2012, 12:01 AM EST.
Paulo i hate you! ¬¬
LuckyCat December 28, 2012, 12:01 AM EST.
AND PLUNGE THE WHOLE THING INTO DRAMA AGAIN
(not that you didn’t already…)
CoolC December 28, 2012, 12:01 AM EST.
Well… Poor Jasmine, i really liked the PauloxJasmin couple.
ChileanGuy December 28, 2012, 12:03 AM EST.
Poor Paulo he really likes jasmine but loving someone else just complicate things. With all the problems Lucy is going through he could actually be really good for her, unless she is sent away like everyone thinks she is I cant wait to see how this all plays out
Sam December 28, 2012, 12:03 AM EST.
Jasmine was never heard from again.
Radial December 28, 2012, 12:03 AM EST.
Go confess already!!…so I can watch and eat popcorn again
Midstrike December 28, 2012, 12:04 AM EST.
Paulo that’s so sweet<3
I really like the fact that there is a little bit of his lip drawn but it’s not heavily outlined.
Rioo December 28, 2012, 12:04 AM EST.
I used to be a MikexLucy guy, but awhile ago i changed sides to PauloxLucy so this page made me squee so hard.
I do feel bad for Jazzy though…
I don’t know though, from the beginning of this chapter it sounds like Paulo might not get the chance to tell Lucy how he feels, because my take on that was that her Mom was considering sending her away…
Order_66 December 28, 2012, 12:04 AM EST.
Oh! and now i dislike Paulo… only because he realized now about a feeling that he always had.
ChileanGuy December 28, 2012, 12:05 AM EST.
I was really excited about some PauloxLucy but I’m pretty sure this is actually going to end up PauloxTess
Reine December 28, 2012, 12:07 AM EST.
Do it, dammit! Go!

I have one question: Where’s Nikita? 0_0
KarmaKitty December 28, 2012, 12:09 AM EST.
LUCY !!! Your man is coming.
Blue fox December 28, 2012, 12:10 AM EST.
I understand why it didn’t work, but I kinda thought Paulo and Tess had more chemistry it kinda feels wrong to hear him say he loves Lucy more than her, after everything they went through.
I want to see more scenes of Lucy and Paulo together when she’s not angry or clinging to him for support - I want to see more evidence of her genuinely making him happy, and enjoying his company for him, not just because he is somebody to support her. I think then I’ll be more excited - right now I just feel horrible for Jazz.
Dave December 28, 2012, 12:10 AM EST.
Dammit time! Move faster! CTHULU, YOU HAVE BETRAYED ME! Let the Old Gods tear you down you lying, flying, giant, squid monster!
DarthStar December 28, 2012, 12:11 AM EST.
Yeah, we’ve all known about Paulo’s intense lust for Molly. Its no wonder her big brother hates him so much.
Titanium Dragon December 28, 2012, 12:11 AM EST.
I have no doubt that Jasmine will not take the break up so well.
As for Paulo, I really hope he knows what he’s doing or he might end up hurting both girls in the process, even if it wasn’t his intention.
Nimbus26 December 28, 2012, 12:12 AM EST.
Ahhh, love and drama. I know Jaz will take the news better than most would. She’s not looking for “The one” and said herself that there would be no hard feelings should it happen. I doubt much will change between them. After all, she’s still awesome. But nonetheless it saddens me to see it come to this. Sometimes the hardest thing to say to someone is the truth.
Qsandas December 28, 2012, 12:12 AM EST.
I thought he was talking about Yashy.
Kuroh December 28, 2012, 12:12 AM EST.
Well, we have all seen that Lucy would put out, and that Jasmine is grossed out by the thought. Do the math.
Arceus December 28, 2012, 12:15 AM EST.
Lucy isn’t going to get sent away. At worst, she’ll have to see some psychologist after school like Abbey does on occasion. I’m sure she’ll convince her family not to resort to that. The bigger question is whether or not she’ll decide to attend the party as a way to prove to her family of being of a more stable mind. Jasmine is probably coming in the next few panels, which would offer plenty enough drama as it is for one night. However, Lucy showing up before Jasmine? That would probably be the most awkward. He can’t confess to Lucy when he has unfinished business with Jasmine. Does he mention in his break up that Lucy is the reason he can’t be with Jasmine anymore, or does he just say that there is no chemistry between them? The we have to consider how Mike reacts to her appearance. At best he’ll be indifferent about it, seeing that he has already tried to cover up their falling out, but also because he is trying to be good on his word to Sandy. To be honest, it’s hard to tell what will go down within the next 18 pages considering all the possibilities. The only thing that is guaranteed at this point is a few broken hearts.
It would be kinda funny if Tess just randomly kissed Paulo in the next panel.
Purin December 28, 2012, 12:16 AM EST.
Paulo is so cute when he’s angsting
Anthony_frost December 28, 2012, 12:16 AM EST.
I guess that makes him a paulophile eh?
synthyK December 28, 2012, 12:22 AM EST.
@purin - actually, I think therapy would be really beneficial to Lucy.
Think of how many problems her dependency, trust and violence issues have caused for her, and she’s clearly depressed. I think getting her help is the best thing her family could do for her.
Dave December 28, 2012, 12:24 AM EST.
Dang it Tessa for asking that kind of a question.
Also way to go Tae, made me laugh, after reading that strip and thinking about how bad things may go, “Molly”.
Anon-Anon December 28, 2012, 12:24 AM EST.
oh ****ing you jasmin but poor of she love him so much but IS LUCY!!!!
women who love forever!!!!!

Zany December 28, 2012, 12:32 AM EST.
So turtle is a lass…..
nope December 28, 2012, 12:35 AM EST.
Its pretty clear its Lucy, since Taeshi usually throws something to throw us off like its a David(who is almost worst than Mike) chapter, and now its “Molly”.
Paulo go to Mike steal his phone(Buddy System) and call Jasmine tell your dumping her and your sorry, hang up! Make it quick and somewhat painless. Then sprint out the door and thank Tess on the way out, run to Lucy’s and hug that poor girl! Hold her tight and tell her you love her!
Wait.. that would never happen it would end drama WAIT *plays epic battle music* That would cause LOTS of drama because Lucy is happy without Mike and Paulo is siding with Lucy! Hell yeah! I can feel the drama already, and since Taeshi loves to feed us drama it will so happen!
I can imagine:
Mike: “What the hell Paulo?”
Paulo:”What you jealous!”
Lucy:*hides behind Paulo with head down”
Mike: Of course not!
Paulo: Then why do you care douche bag!
Mike: “ARG!” *stomps off*
Paulo: *Grins a happy grin*
Mike: *turns around and glares at Lucy*
Lucy: *afraid, clings to Paulo*
Paulo: *turns around faces Lucy*”Its ok Lucy I got you”*hugs Lucy*
Mike: *storms away in rage*
Sorry Taeshi, I spoiled the comic for everyone didn’t I D :
Someone December 28, 2012, 12:36 AM EST.
Am I the only one who was thinking ‘Nice test there Tess to make sure it wasn’t you he was talking about’?
Also, dammit. I do love the idea of Paulo and Lucy being together, but when do we ever get what we want? I mean reaaaaaly?
But then again, things to always be changing.
Mike was an awesome guy, but sadly kinda turned into a jerk cause he let his feels and stress take over and reacted all at once.
Lucy used to be the lovable bitch, now she’s a sad sad sad sad kitty.
Paulo was one of my least favorites but LOOKY! He’s all mature now.
The only person who hasn’t changed is David. HAIL THE NEVER CHANGING DAVID
Now I’m just rambling, I’ll stop.

Renoku December 28, 2012, 12:48 AM EST.
Feed me more drama…
…Oh god, pull up a David chapter for me please, that plant gives me nightmares, it really does…
Really though, that was probably one of the most cliche lovestruck phrases you’ve used throughout what I can remember. Not that it’s bad, it’s great for Paulo to admit his feeling like that, I’m just mentioning that it might be. So…congratulations on having the most original teenage angst since 2009?
Neospector December 28, 2012, 12:51 AM EST.
Ok. So, it’s not Tess.
I know it IS Lucy, but I don’t WANT it to be Lucy. Because 1: that spells bad news and 2: I’m a MikeXLucy kind of guy.

But seriously, that’s a hell of a question to ask a guy, Tess.
Follarch December 28, 2012, 12:56 AM EST.
Jazzy also said that she’s fine and ”no hard feelings, I’m too young to find the ‘right one”’ (but it would be terrible to break up on New Year’s Day

Box December 28, 2012, 1:07 AM EST.
And now for a weekend of waiting for a SUDDEN SCENE CHANGE
Rii December 28, 2012, 1:12 AM EST.
why are people saying its Molly? Thats Abby’s little sister. Paulo is either talking about Lucy, or Daisy because he said “she’s not perfect but she’s perfect to me” the reason i think Daisy is also because she never sees herself as “perfect” and has self esteem issues. Also Paulo has shown in the past how he cares about her, and if you check the “Ask Roseville High” tumblr, a question is asked what would happen is Daisy confessed to Paulo, and the picture is of his head exploding which speaks a lot.
bunnyclub December 28, 2012, 1:18 AM EST.
Do you think that the most recent ‘Ask Roseville High’ answer has anything to do with this, or is that just way too obvious?
Telta December 28, 2012, 1:22 AM EST.
@Telta maybe im not sure, its a good thought to ponder on though.
bunnyclub December 28, 2012, 1:23 AM EST.
Its really interesting to see how Tess makes Paulo compare how much he loves her vs. how much he loves this ‘unkwown’ girl but I wonder if it means that she has truly gotten over her feelings for Paulo? The party is definitely going to heat up, and we get to watch!
Drama lover December 28, 2012, 1:28 AM EST.

but… but… PauloxTess! awww…
Bleh December 28, 2012, 1:37 AM EST.
@wallgir I don’t even—what is that—
On another note, TESS STOP LOOKING SO GODDAMN HEART-BROKEN. Like REALLY babe, you broke it off with Paulo. At least stop being so freakin’ obvious. :< And Paulo…you’re so goddamn cute. It’s so weird and dare I say unsettling that you’re so…flat-eared. Like…I dunneven know. e_e Also, Jazz is a really awesome and understanding girl. I think she’ll be hurt, but she’ll understand. People don’t give her enough credit. I think it might turn out that she was wiser to the whole situation than she might have let on.
Anyway…excited for Monday. I want things to work out. e_e
Yaschiri December 28, 2012, 1:39 AM EST.
PauloxMolly…yeah I could see that.
Defutz December 28, 2012, 1:42 AM EST.
Jeeze Paulo. If you turn this all into a spiral of endless drama I will move you down on my list of characters. Put your sunglasses on, and stop givin’ a damn.
Demetrois December 28, 2012, 1:45 AM EST.
… Someone can hit me for this lol…
But I just sorta registered how /gold/ Paulo’s eyes are. No seriously, aside from the other pages, they seem so vibrant to me this time.
Maybe I clearly haven’t been paying attention to the artwork with all the angst going about…
I’m the only one noticing the whole vibrant…ness of Paulo’s eyes, huh?
If that were the case, wouldn’t that mean it wouldn’t be Lucy either? She did mention tsunderes when he was thinking about his epic love interest. I really want to say that it is indeed Lucy he is talking about but this comic has this unique trait of being extremely predictable and unpredictable at the same time.
Shiny Raichu December 28, 2012, 1:52 AM EST.
Well then time to porpose to Luuuuucy!!!!!
jun yang December 28, 2012, 1:53 AM EST.
Meh, I just dont feel the PauloXLucy anymore. Its funny, its something I’ve been rooting for since practically when I first started reading BCB so long ago but now……….
I mean, to see Paulo with Jasmine. She loves him, like alot. And because of that, Im sure she’ll be willing to let him go. And Paulo, yeah, he’ll be “being true to his feelings” and going after Lucy who he’s loved all this time, and maybe theres a chance for Lucy to finally be happy and PauloXLucy will reign and all the fans will rejoice and there will be world peace and unicorns for everyone, but wheres that leave Jasmine? Paulo might not be a perfect boyfriend, but she sure thinks the world of him. I just dont see this ending well for her. And honestly, as much as I love Lucy, and hate to see her suffering, Jasmine is a whole lot more deserving of Paulo (and a happy, stable relationship) than Lucy is (in my opinion)
Thats all, Ive spoken my piece (feel free to tear my opinions apart as you feel fit….)
Frodomann1 December 28, 2012, 1:56 AM EST.
So this is the part where Jasmine walks in and they have a great time at the party and Paulo realizes he wasn’t thinking straight and stays with Jasmine… Right?
Inukai December 28, 2012, 2:01 AM EST.
Oh dear, this won’t end well
nalem December 28, 2012, 2:08 AM EST.
Hmmm… If Paulo brakes up with Jasmine I hope she’ll find a person who is willing to wait for her.
Abraham December 28, 2012, 2:09 AM EST.
It seems logical for Paulo to break up with Jazz first, but will he break up with her first, or first go and confess his love for Lucy.
And lets not forget, Lucy’s family has a different agenda than giving Paulo a break, an agenda that might literally and figuratively kill Paulo, or at least his heart.
foreveryoung5 December 28, 2012, 2:11 AM EST.
@foreveryoung5 Ahh, fantastic point. Something we either conveniently (or truly) forget about.
Yaschiri December 28, 2012, 2:17 AM EST.
He’s going to break up with Jazmine on New Year’s Eve?! Dude…..
Some Guy December 28, 2012, 2:24 AM EST.
Wow mature Paulo, now probably my favouritr character in this comic
But where is the PauloxTess?
PauloxTess December 28, 2012, 2:30 AM EST.
I don’t think Tess is really upset that Paulo confessed to loving another girl more than he loved her or his current girlfriend. I think she’s probably feeling more relieved that he’s finally manned up enough to admit the truth, rather than saddened that a boy two years her junior confessed to not having feelings for her. I know because I’m feeling that myself. Also, it was really obvious to pretty much everyone else in the comic that he still has feels for good ol’ Luce. If anything, she’s probably worried about how Jasmine might take the news.
Not to mention Jazzie said herself that if she found ‘the one’ that she loved and wanted to spend the rest of her life with, she’d know. And it’s clear that Paulo is not that boy.
PocketGodPygmy December 28, 2012, 2:33 AM EST.
Awwww. I don’t want to see anymore heartbreaks. I haven’t commented in months but I still want to have a say… please? I don’t want Jazzy sad but I perfer PauloxLucy only because Mike is a jerk. People really should check out the song “Just the girl” by Click Five. It somewhat matches Lucy and Mike… if Sandy were gone.
Momiji December 28, 2012, 2:35 AM EST.
Pretty sure he’s talking about Mike.
Jake December 28, 2012, 2:36 AM EST.
I love the way you drew Paulo’s ears, Taeshi! They’re so adorable. Ears can be really expressive, and all that drooping can only mean sadness. Tinged with cuteness, but still sadness.
PocketGodPygmy December 28, 2012, 2:36 AM EST.
But then David was somehow pregnant with Paulo’s baby
Helloz December 28, 2012, 2:42 AM EST.
BTW, I just want to say thank to for the comics and Happy Little Late Christmas!! I don’t know what I’d do if this ends soon. If it does, I think I’ll cry. Esspecially… sorry for the spelling error. On my birthday which with all this drama, I doubt it’ll end in January.^_^ See you next time!! *Starts singing Never Alone by Barlow Girls* Sorry, stuck in my head. •_• T~T NOOO!!!! SHUT UP STUPID MUSIC INFESTED BRAIN!! I CAN’T GET IN TROUBLE!!……. This is why I want to be a psychologist. Becase I need….ed help and I want to help people. I talk too much…………
Momiji December 28, 2012, 2:57 AM EST.
Heh. I’ll call it now - he’s talking about Daisy.
StushiJaguar December 28, 2012, 3:10 AM EST.
Oh man, Paulo!
I just hope for your sake that you’re not mistaking caring for someone for loving them.
Cavara December 28, 2012, 3:29 AM EST.
How would Paulo react to seeing how emotionless Lucy looks lately, compare to what he last remembered seeing, a smile to match those beautiful blue eyes?
At least we know why Tess rejected Paulo so long ago, Tess didn’t want to be Paulo’s silver trophy. Well that and college, can you imagine what Paulo would do if he was surrounded by a bunch of college girls? Actually I think his moment in the hallway with Tess, Lucy, Jessica, Rachel, and Jasmine might have set him straight no more womanizing or he’ll be in trouble. He thanked her by hanging out with her but it was nothing more .
Paulo if you go after Molly expect to be barked at… by Justin . Goggle boy has won the hearts of many after saving a kidnapped Molly .
supertails19 December 28, 2012, 3:44 AM EST.
You know what you must do Paulo…hit it and quit it.
Fluffy December 28, 2012, 4:05 AM EST.
Am i the only one who immediatly though about Daisy?
Daisy, the girl who ended up as a cockblocker for Paulo.
Trolovator December 28, 2012, 4:09 AM EST.
I realise this does not seem very feasible to most, but can they not all just share?
paulosawesome December 28, 2012, 4:14 AM EST.
I am a total PauloXlucy fan.
I gotta admit though, i am pretty awwed by how Tess is reacting. She is so mature and understanding about it. She isn’t freaking out over what coulda been. all in all Awesome!!!
keirei December 28, 2012, 4:14 AM EST.
@Purin: I think Paulo breaking up with Jasmine first and then saying that he loves Lucy to Jasmine would be more awkward simply because there is a good chance Lucy will hear about it and hate the fact that another girl, Jasmine, got her heart broken because of her .
@Trolovator: I thought about it then I remembered this http://askbcb.tumblr.com/post/37983075108. Poor Paulo got his mind blown by the one that he think of as a little sister that hasn’t done anything wrong. If Daisy ever said I love you to Paulo he wouldn’t be able to handle it. Just like if Haley said I love you Mike. I would just stare O.o unable to comprehend why it came out of left field.
@paulosawesome: if they went for that simply solution we would lose all the drama and the bittersweet for our Bittersweet Candy Bowl. In other words it just wouldn’t be the same. Imagine if Mike, Lucy, and Sandy ended up together we would of lost so much drama and I would have lost a chance to feel again. Also Paulo is not THAT lucky. Oh boy don’t get me started on AugustusXDaisyXAbbey or AmayaXSueXMcCain wow the possibilites are endless *.*.
supertails19 December 28, 2012, 4:19 AM EST.
Paolo, we all know what you have to do. Ya gotta sweep the girl up and have no regrets! Here’s hoping the chapter ends with a kiss! Although, I still think that Jazzie might be the one Paolo ends up kissing come New Years.
Nicolas December 28, 2012, 4:28 AM EST.
zung December 28, 2012, 4:28 AM EST.
I really really doubt that he’s referring to Lucy. My money’s on Daisy. Darn it, if it’s Lucy I feel bad for Mike and if it’s Daisy I feel awful for Abbey. I really wished that PauloTess could be a thing again, but Paulo has just been making one bad choice after another. Jasmine did overreact about that fight her and Paulo had, so I hope she doesn’t take it too hard and try to seek vengeance or anything. She’s a pretty level headed girl, though, so maybe she’ll take it well like most suspect. But then again, predicting BCB? Pfffffftyeahright. I can’t understand why many people hate Mike now and are getting on the PauloLucy train. Mile said some stuff he regretted after loads of abuse from Lucy. He shouldn’t have been so “Blaaargh Lucy hate lasers activate!” but he did attempt to apologize, but Lily stopped him because, like she said, Lucy needed time to be able to feel like the apology was sincere. So I feel that Mike isn’t just this ********* of a guy now because he vented incorrectly. I really don’t care for PauloLucy at all obviously, and I lovelovelove DaisyXAbbey, so I hope either Paulo admits to someone, but with no avail, or else him and Molly make the best friggin’ kittens ever conceived.
ThingamaJigglypuff December 28, 2012, 4:33 AM EST.
Suddenly is Paulo x Molly!
Silvyx December 28, 2012, 5:02 AM EST.
Wait everyone thinks it’s Lucy? Am I the only one who automatically thought of you know… DAISY. I’m just saying =/
chickencow December 28, 2012, 5:31 AM EST.
I’m calling that Lucy arrives before Jasmine, and that Paulo confesses his feelings towards here. And then kisses her JUST as Jasmine walks in, in that wonderful cliche sort of way. Drama ensues and then Jasmine goes crazy and bleaches her hair and tries to kill Lucy. Meanwhile Paulo is fighting Micheal to the death for the right to date Lucy.
No wait that’s Scott Pilgrim again…
BrusselSprouts December 28, 2012, 5:40 AM EST.
Considering recent events and of how worried Paulo is and the “I’LL BE THE BEST DAMNED FRIEND EVER” comment and how he followed up with his father, I can see why people think he is talking about Lucy and not Daisy. Just sayin!
Lolly December 28, 2012, 5:44 AM EST.
Oh. So he wasn’t talking about Daisy?
MollyLol December 28, 2012, 6:38 AM EST.

dam i thought it was the rabbit that david kidnaped back in chapter 33.
Aris December 28, 2012, 8:31 AM EST.
I bet it’s Augustus. Or David . Not Lucy. Lucy would be too obvious. I expect more better than that from you, Taeshi. Poor Jazz though.
In the end I don’t really care who it turns out to be. I just hope Paulo doesn’t end up getting hurt. He’s one of the saddest characters, even though he manages to run and hide from that.
Fortunos December 28, 2012, 9:13 AM EST.
aw come on ppl, it don’t take a rocket scientist to see he’s referring to daisy! how i know this? well its cleary obvious he loves lucy, we seen that throughout the series, so if he was in fact referring to lucy when he said he loved her more than tess than i can tell u right now i knew that as a fact before paulo even admitted it! paulo thinks lucy perfect but he knows he can’t compete with mike! now i know it’s daisy because he refuse to get serious with tess simply because daisy was the girl always on his mind. if he couldn’t pursue a relation with tess because of his mix feelings for daisy than that right there tell u his feelings for her was stronger than it was for tess! daisy is insecure and feel she isn’t perfect, paulo just admitted the girl wasn’t perfect but was perfect to him! u ppl have to read between the lines…… if you look at the tumblr for this comic is shows that if paulo had to save at least one of the girls it would had been daisy! daisy over lucy? yes thou paulo was crying about lucy and not choosing to save her, the fact is he chose daisy over her! now i aint saying he loves daisy more than lucy, i know for a fact he don’t. but i know he do love her more than jazmine and tess! the author just want you to believe he’s referring to lucy so you’ll be surprise later.
kiki December 28, 2012, 9:35 AM EST.
I’m pretty damn sure Daisy is almost considered a sister to Paulo, which could make it incredibly awkward for him.
While Lucy is the high maintenance, yet fun girl he’s always had some sort of funky feelings for.
And Jasmine is also high maintenance, though in wholly different ways (never gotten any time for him for example.).
Not to mention Paulo started the fling with Jasmine due to peer pressure from David.
He (David) could REALLY use a reality check, along with Mike.
Lector December 28, 2012, 9:52 AM EST.
i am actually kind of irritated at tess for asking that question - it comes off as selfish and unnecessary. i honestly think she needs to get her priorities straight in terms of respecting paulo as a friend and giving him some space to figure out his love life or w/e.
loor December 28, 2012, 10:08 AM EST.
It has to be Lucy!!
lucyxpaulo27 December 28, 2012, 10:26 AM EST.
ya know, I think we’re all jumping the gun here
I mean, what if it’s not lucy he’s talking about? He’s being kind of vague and even though we all are PRETTY sure he’s talking about lucy…
what if he’s talking about daisy?
SXR123 December 28, 2012, 10:36 AM EST.
I’ve always considered Paulo and Jasmine as more of a best buddy pair. I never really saw them as a couple, they acted more like I do with my best pals.
But now I feel like I’m being pulled in my arms towards two directions.
I want Luce to get away from this place and be sent off somewhere else (new school?) - I admit, I like that kind of drama - but now that Paulo is coming clean (about Molly, of course), I don’t know what I want anymore.
Hnnngh, Monday, where art thou?!

I understand how hard it is for Paulo to chose between these 3 girls, and he feels bad leading them all on, but DAMNIT PAULO CHOOSE YOUR GIRL AND END THIS DRAMA!
youill1 December 28, 2012, 11:30 AM EST.
Well jasmine will cry alittle but take it better then most people mike won’t care because he has sandy and wants lucy to get the **** out of his life and lucy is a depressed walrus and her rebound with paulo is going to be in mating season then they all has it on the beach AGAIN
Nobody December 28, 2012, 11:58 AM EST.
Yeah PauloxMolly is practically cannon now

Kindle Kat December 28, 2012, 12:14 PM EST.
Where did you get that?
At this point, Paulo would need to talk with Jasmine about this and when he does he better be able make her understand his dilemma. Paulo always loved Lucy ever since they met. His conifdence was corrupted and his realization of this has grown on him. He is certainly growing into a mature young man. I hope for the best for him and hope that he and Jasmine can work things out.

i laughed at the molly comment lol DD so hard!
psychofoxpickle December 28, 2012, 12:26 PM EST.
I don’t see how it isn’t Lucy, in the last few chapters he spent the whole time pining over her, like when she called and when he took her cake. The phone thing really tips it off i think though, because to the end he was torn between Lucy and Jazzy at the end and was like “…Dammit.”
Then again, BCB does have a way of leading you to one conclusion and then something completely different happens… and it is really trying to lead us to think Lucy so it MIGHT be someone else…

Just-A-Lurker December 28, 2012, 1:22 PM EST.
I think Jasmine would actually be a really good match for goth cat. She’s so cheerful and bright and trusting and that’s exactly what he needs judging on the beginning of this chapter. No one can match Jazzy’s light!!!! Also PauloxLucy all the way. When either of them dishes out crap the other can take it. Mike’s too much of a pushover
Sylvia December 28, 2012, 2:55 PM EST.
This is hard… I like Paulo and Lucy together but I also still hold out hope for some Lucy x Augustus love. Which should I cheer for!? D=
Lunacy December 28, 2012, 3:04 PM EST.
I think for the drama Paulo is going to break things off with Jasmine only that Lucy will probably arrive at the party with Augustus or those two somehow are going to hook up. Especially how even the writer of the comic is somewhat shipping the pair of Lucy x Augustus and would make sense in this time that something like that would happen. It’s needed more for Lucy development and I’m sure she’s not thinking of Paulo in the same way right now.
tsdr December 28, 2012, 3:15 PM EST.
Daisy is like a sister to Paulo and Lucy is his love interest. I think I know who he will choose >.>Lucy( )<< don’t get me wrong he would do anything to protect Daisy, but he knows she already has Abbey. Lucy on the other hand locked herself in her own room and Paulo had to work his magic just to get her to open the door a little bit… so Paulo already knows he has to do his best if he wants to cheer her up. If Paulo can’t figure how to cheer her up then who can . Here’s a hint not Mike unless he has a massive change in attitude around Lucy(again ). I know Paulo had a phone call from Lucy but I have to remember what it is about .
Also If Lucy ends up going to Sandy’s school I will squee at all the possibilities . Actually I think it would be more likely for Lucy to have a chat with Zachary. Zach did say he’d be there for her. Hopefully before the big Mike versus Paulo fight… wait what?

So what’s the deal with Final Fantasy Cat and that gang? Are they gonna murder Mike? Cause if they do I really hope he goes hyper ninja and saves everyone.

I’ve started reading BCB about 3 weeks ago and I have to say this comic has a unique charm to it. The last time I said this was the day I watched Digimon when I was a kid. It really has something that anyone can relate to when they went to school or are still in school. In some ways, it speaks to you. I love the suspense it gives. I’ve noticed that there are those who say this comic doesn’t progress but I say otherwise. It adds more the story and more character development.
Taeshi if you are reading this, you seriously got something good going and I feel that this comic can go further then just as a comic. It’s got the right things going for it to become a animated cartoon for television. If you have even the slightest desire to try, DO IT! Or wait until BCB is complete, it’s your call. But I REALLY suggest you do it! Hopefully you do this and in the future, we will see BCB on TV. Keep at it Taeshi!
Blaze33405 December 28, 2012, 5:11 PM EST.
I’m going for Lucy over Daisy. He sees Daisy as a sister not a lover, and why compete with Abbey anyway? Daisy is happy with him. We’ve seen Paulo longing for Lucy for a while now. Besides not every page needs to be unpredictable, a twist is nice but sometimes you want the story to just go with the flow.
Katie December 28, 2012, 5:27 PM EST.
Paulo is an idiot. ‘Nuf said.
NobodyxNobody December 28, 2012, 5:51 PM EST.
PAULO! 8D This page makes me super happy. ^^ Now if only everything wouldn’t become a sh*tshow, heh. :’D Oh well, I’ll enjoy it all as usual!
+bird+ December 28, 2012, 6:00 PM EST.
I’m sure everyone will go “Aww snap!” if Taeshi chooses another girl than Lucy
BlueBerry December 28, 2012, 6:13 PM EST.
A second page where Paulo is blushing all the way through. That’s amazing.
Kuro December 28, 2012, 6:22 PM EST.
Wow, Paulo’s being so serious and sure about his feelings for Lucy this time round that I’m actually taken aback.
Let’s hope nothing dramatic happens next
Death of Ink December 28, 2012, 6:27 PM EST.
Paulo is starting to show maturity. That’s a big change! But I predict a huge drama moment going to drop soon. I can feel it due to the suspense.
Blaze33405 December 28, 2012, 7:02 PM EST.
I don’t think that’s a “hell but /i/ want your cock” face, i think that’s a “**** bad break up detected, geez i’m sorry you’re in this position bro” face. tess has proven to be pretty good at sympathizing.
at everyone else,
are we forgetting the parts where he gave lucy cake and asked his dad if wanting to be her boyfriend was cheating and she phoned him and he had sex dream all over his face? i don’t think lucy + lucy + lucy + sex = daisy. not that i couldn’t be wrong and wouldn’t accept the twist, but. come now. no need to read so deep into one statement ( “SHE’S PERFECT TO /ME/ OMGLOB.” ) when we have several scenes giving us an obvious lead up.

Subaru December 28, 2012, 7:42 PM EST.
i get how people think Paulo is talking about Lucy, but I think he might be talking about Daisy.
I see how Paulo says Daisy is like a sister to him, but when you think about when David was talking about her when Paulo and Tess were together, it kinda threw him off.
cryptic grimmoire December 28, 2012, 7:50 PM EST.
I betcha the next page, paulo will either say lucy or tess. And I will HATE to hear paulo say Lucy. I’ll betcha if he really does “love her” like he says, he will be able to accept the fact that Lucy will either not accept him (not sure if that will happen) or not let him bang her (pretty sure that will happen).
Rylan December 28, 2012, 8:12 PM EST.
Okay guys, I love Jasmine too, but let’s be honest here.
Regardless of how “great” she is, there is no reason why Paulo should stay with her if he DOESN’T have feelings for her or he he is in love with someone else.
So far there are some people saying what a jerk he is for dating her and then breaking up with her, but maybe he just thought he could fall for her. Everyone takes chances on people they don’t expect while dating and sometimes it goes great and sometimes it doesn’t.
More importantly, who CARES if Jasmine has undying affection for Paulo? You don’t stay in a relationship out of guilt. He doesn’t owe Jasmine anything. Hell nothing really even happened with just a kiss.
She will live guys, it was just a fling. Seriously.
I_Love_Lucy December 28, 2012, 8:14 PM EST.
I think Tess is very pretty, but I feel like her fur color is inconsistent
In some panels, she’s a very pretty goldish color, while in others, she looks more orange.
poptart warrior December 28, 2012, 8:22 PM EST.
Lucy or Daisy??
Why you askin? December 28, 2012, 8:41 PM EST.
Yes, Paulo, you know what you must do. You must go to a corner and jack—oh, wait a sec. You must continue to hide your feelings, until they drive you insane. Hmm, no wait. You have to tell Jasmine you’ve been digging some other girl every time you make out. Uh, well wait a sec.
Hmm, on second thought, don’t listen to me. I’m sure you’ll figure it out…you will, won’t you, Paulo? The smoldering ashes that is the relationship between L&M is something maybe you could learn from, yes?

stuffnthat December 29, 2012, 7:29 AM EST.
@Patches: I’m sure we’ll still see Jasmine. As long as Paulo lets her down gently, I’m sure they will remain friends and continue their silly antics as a team. They just won’t be in a relationship any more.

@Most of you
I want to start a thing… so we guess when we will find out FROM PAULO personally who is “Perfect to me”. I am guessing maybe next Friday or the Monday after that. Oh predication for Monday, CUE cheesy announce voice: “And now back to Lucy”
@ People thinking its PauloxDaisy
http://askbcb.tumblr.com/post/12128989408<~he may have choose Daisy but he is pretty damn sad… Probably because he thinks Lucy doesn’t love him. But I don’t know.
And the This answered right before Tess and Paulo talked:http://askbcb.tumblr.com/post/38547309235<~~~ I think this, Taeshi is soooo adorable and awesome at the same time! <3
Jasmine will take the break just fine:http://askbcb.tumblr.com/post/12982952158

And what makes you think I am Taeshi?
Someone December 29, 2012, 5:06 PM EST.
I have a feeling that even tho Paulo will want to tell Lucy he loves her, I also have a feeling that somehow Augustus may run into Lucy before Paulo sees her again and something may happen between them… I mean, just throwing out speculations, why was Augustus shown around the first page anyway?
Beta December 29, 2012, 5:22 PM EST.
Phew, and I thought he was talking about Abby this whole time…

but i also love MikexLucy because they are just really cute.
i hope things keep happening, in a MORE DRAMATIC way >:3
Madi_mew101 December 29, 2012, 10:50 PM EST.
Today I re-read some of the oldest comics and read the comments about “Oh! The drama” and was like… This doesn’t feel so dramatic compared to what’s going on lately…
What I mean to say is: hey I have been around following this comics for 7 years and I still remember most of the most important details, I noticed the art improvements and they are a lot! I would know, because I used to love the comic so much I drew this cats on my free time (I was worse then you of course xD… Kind of still am ), but I didn’t notice that… you also got better at story telling! And I can specially see that in the re-drawn chapters.
So I wanted to say that… hey your comic is great!! And you have gotten better!!! Way better!! Congratulations and keep it up!!!
Vanilla December 29, 2012, 11:42 PM EST.
I didn’t think of that. Perhaps Augustus and this Brother(?)(good olde rape cat?) are finally going through with the plan to get revenge, problem is I don’t think they were counting on “December”. OMG maybe… Talk about drama, Mike and Lucy fight off good olde rape cat and become friends again or possibly more? Nah, Paulo getting with Lucy will cause more drama especially if a wedge is driven between the group. THE DRAMA! Cue Taeshi’s evilest but bad *** laugh.
someone please tell me to get a life!
I am addicted to BCB and sadly Proud of it! <3

Angel December 30, 2012, 4:45 PM EST.
Who’s he talking about? Ten possibilities:
a) Jasmine (maybe he’s thinking of marrying her)
b) Lucy (GET AWAY! For all I blame Mike for abandoning her, I’m still a MikeXLucy shipper)
c) Daisy (because she’s the one he’d save if there was a bus accident)
d) Mike (because he thinks Mike is a girl)
e) Molly (as Taeshi suggests)
f) Mike and Molly (don’t think he’d actually like this sitcom)
g) Lily? (originally had she-who-shall-not-be-named — starts with a K — here)
h) Sandy (even though he’s never met her)
i) Rachel (because they had a close encounter of the 69th kind…)
j) is for Jessica! Or Jasmine! (maybe he’ll be a polygamist?)
GUEST December 30, 2012, 5:12 PM EST.
I just checked the Fortune Teller from Starting Over and it says Paulo is going to end up with Augustus. Sorry guys, but high school fads involving folded paper don’t lie.
Dryhad December 30, 2012, 9:24 PM EST.
I’m sorry I’ve hated Tess from the beginning. She’s so jealous and she’s such a terrible person ugh she’s just like the fake jerks at my school
Obviously she’s going to do something to make this worse for Paulo because she’s jealous and still wants him. Ugh. >:1
Jhig December 30, 2012, 10:12 PM EST.
What on earth makes you say that? Tess looks genuinely concerned for Paulo and looks like she wants to help. Sure, she may be jealous but you have to realize that she rejected him.
Mightyena December 30, 2012, 10:37 PM EST.
I’m not saying that she doesn’t have sympathy for Paulo’s plight. She still cares a great deal for him especially though it seems, and even though she’s mature enough to know what she wants from Paulo can’t happen, that it won’t happen, I believe that it still hurts her regardless. But her need for Paulo to be happy and to do the right thing overrides her wants. So she helps.
Yaschiri December 31, 2012, 12:58 AM EST.

Really? Jessica was really flat in the personality department to me. I don’t know she was kind of boring. And ha that’s how I feel Paulo! Lucy is unlikable to so many people but she’s definitely my favorite character. I’ll fight anybody on that. I think her and Paulo would be great. It won’t happen because Lucy’s chuggin after the Mike train hardcore, but still. If it happened out of a miracle it’d be nice. I still route for Mike and Lucy haha. I love tumultuous hate-love.

Weabootrash October 12, 2014, 4:37 AM EST.
I’m not sure why people dig JasmineXPaulo so much over LucyXPaulo. Yea, Lucy and Paulo are typically together due to ensuing drama, but Jazz and Paulo know each other less, have little chemistry, and are on totally different maturity fields. Paulo doesn’t really seem ready for any kind of relationship now…Though I’m also still hoping he’ll turn out gay, so I’m biased.
