What a way to wrap things up.
Oh god, now we get to deal with the Rachel pregnancy arc. Awesome.

Katias July 9, 2013, 1:00 PM EST.
Well at least there’s no need for protection.
Not saying that there’s no need for protection from other people.

Actually, I totally saw that coming from a mile away to be honest. That’s always her solution to everything, and we all know it.
Also, is that Paulo’s erection in panel 4? LOL, You’re getting better at the little stuff, Veronica.

@Jonathan he’s crouching omg. is a natural reflect when waking up.
Raxki July 9, 2013, 1:07 PM EST.
BWAAHAHAHAHAHA oh wow!
I have to say I called it just a little
I mean it’s Rachel of all people, of course it went in this direction.
And hell he isn’t even officially with Lucy and Jasmines out of the picture-ish (I would still like to see her in the story since I really like her character, she’s a sweet girl) so hey it’s not he’s cheating on anybody.
Also it’s actually kind of ironic since the same thing technically happened between him and Lucy
except you know Paulo had some decorum and made sure THIS didn’t happen.

I had hoped this wouldn’t happen but to be honest it was easy to see coming. Nice way to lighten the mood of the chapter though. As for people spouting the prego theory, cats and dogs can’t have kids, as seen with Abbey’s adopted parents.
The only protection Paulo needs is from the ****** off readers, and fortunately it’s a comic so there’s nothing we can do.
*Puts bat with ‘common sense’ written on it down*
Venorik July 9, 2013, 1:14 PM EST.
I think he just slept over. Like when Luce slept over at his place.
I really doubt Paulo would sleep with another girl when he’s this much in love, whether Lucy is gone “forever” or not. I mean, he was even the guy who said no to Lucy when she was desperate. And no matter how much Rachel is a “****”, I really don’t think she’d sleep with Paulo as comfort.
Yumikarp July 9, 2013, 1:14 PM EST.
Maybe she did what Paulo did for Lucy?
And he just THINKS that happened, but it uh didn’t?
btw Taeshi, I LOVE THE WAY YOU’VE BEEN DOING PAULO’S ART RECENTLY. It makes him look like… edgy and sad… (x idk its just perfect ^^
silveryogurt July 9, 2013, 1:15 PM EST.
Isn’t this what he was preventing Lucy from doing when they were last in Paulo’s room? Irony moment for Paulo…. or is it? Maybe he just fell asleep as he was talking to Rachel, or when they were in the middle of…. “something”. Paulo IS technically naked all the time, so I won’t jump to conclusions… yet.

Have a theory, they didn’t sleep together. She comforted him that night.
AstarLynn July 9, 2013, 1:22 PM EST.
No! paulo why?
Aether July 9, 2013, 1:23 PM EST.
gotta love how his only way to calm his emotions is to use his libido. now for those of you saying this is impossible and doesn’t happen it does. its rather common in real life, something similar takes place in this when Lucy is crying to paulo and they almost go all the way, and also when paulo day dreams about what had happened if when Lucy was and emotional wreck if he had gone all the way with her.
granted it does make me think of people who act like this as very pathetic
1wolfblade July 9, 2013, 1:23 PM EST.
Kinda mad at Rachel for this one…why take advantage of him like that
Kitmit July 9, 2013, 1:24 PM EST.
you really just want to look at things in a positive light and give him the benefit of the doubt, even though he had already slept with her in the past.
1wolfblade July 9, 2013, 1:27 PM EST.
asdf July 9, 2013, 1:27 PM EST.
get this… what if Rachel really DOES care about him? mind blown
Whistleblower July 9, 2013, 1:27 PM EST.
Well in a way, Rachel did comfort Paulo in his time of need. Plus now Paulo’s going to be busy trying to remember what happened last night instead of crying himself to sleep. That’s a bonus right?
Well at least he did something other than cry last night.
supertails19 July 9, 2013, 1:30 PM EST.
@Whistleblower: Rachel DOES like Paulo. But she wants to have little puppies someday.
SENDING MIXED SIGNALS A BIT THERE DOGGY GIRL.
Though I do approve. Paulo, come on, she likes you dude. And she won’t punch you in the face.
This is totally a step up for you man. She even has white fur!
Titanium Dragon July 9, 2013, 1:30 PM EST.
please note that dogs and cats can not have children. but if they could would be very interesting turn of events in this
1wolfblade July 9, 2013, 1:32 PM EST.
Dun dun duuun! Unexpected end to a moving chapter, with the promise of more drama/shenanigans to come. …with that said, I hate to burst everyone’s bubble, but I don’t think that Rachel is going to end up pregnant. As mentioned back when it was revealed Abbey was in a foster family, dogs and cats can’t have dat/cog babies
Mallard July 9, 2013, 1:33 PM EST.
Lol! Best way to end a depressinh chapter xD
aubi July 9, 2013, 1:34 PM EST.
Ew, Paulo stay away from that, you don’t know where it’s been.
Devmarizella July 9, 2013, 1:35 PM EST.
Will probably be the same kind of situation he had with Lucy a while back, but it may have gone the way it went in Another Path, given its Paulo and I do believe Rachel has been described as a gigantic **** and didn’t seem to care.
But you do have to love his reaction, its a nice lighthearted way to end what has been a depressing couple of chapters.
Chrisd765 July 9, 2013, 1:36 PM EST.
Well, it looks like I owe several of you a lot of money, now.
On a side note, this was rather unexpected…

Trubeque July 9, 2013, 1:40 PM EST.
I’m gunna go out on a limb and say it’s probably similar to Lucy and how she got upset and slept in Paulo’s bed after a good cry… He’s probably just done the same thing, I don’t think Rachel would have sex with him when he’s so vulnerable like he wouldn’t with Lucy despite wanting to…
KMFiredancer July 9, 2013, 1:42 PM EST.
This wouldn’t be a bad pairing. I like Rachel actually. She’s funny and really sweet..when she wants to be. She can joke and get Paulo’s humor. She’s mature despite her rampant promiscuity. I could see her and Paulo having a good relationship. The thing is though, there is just too many loose ends going on right now. With Jasmine and Lucy out of the picture, why not? Maybe not right NOW, but it could gradually be built up to. I think I will ship this. x
OldRen July 9, 2013, 1:44 PM EST.
I like how everyone’s saying “Oh no they just fell asleep together” come on guys it’s PAULO and THAT DOG WHOSE NAME I CANNOT RECALL

Meow July 9, 2013, 2:08 PM EST.
sure didn’t take him long to get over that ‘heartbreak’…..
I’m mad at Rachel for taking advantage of him… but I’m also mad at him for doing that…. if I’d just lost the guy I loved and I was completely heartbroken, sleeping with some other guy would be the absolute last thing I was interested in doing— and if something crazy happened to me and I was suddenly whisked away for some form of health reasons, learning that the first thing the guy who supposedly loved me did was sleep with another girl would be a huge smack to the face.
Unless Taeshi is going to pull a situation close to the one that occurred a few comics back with Lucy and Paulo, ( which I doubt, ) I’m not so sure Paulo knows what he wants after all.
Here he’s been saying he’s with Lucy to the bitter end, and as soon things get tough he’s in some other girl’s bed.

Kyuubi July 9, 2013, 2:18 PM EST.
damnit paulo you *******!!
bankai July 9, 2013, 2:19 PM EST.
Well that worked out well for Paulo, the lucky cat. Sheds a few pounds worth of tears and gets Rach to drop her panties for him.
Huh, so who’s the emotional one now?
Seems you don’t remember anything between crying your eyes out and waking up in bed with Rach. What’s the matter, did you spend all that time in-between choked up on your emotions, trying to forget your sorrows and feel good where you can hit it good?
Ah well, can’t blame you, I guess. Some people smoke, drink, and hell, some of them actually man-up to the situation. I can still poke and laugh at you though, heh.
So much for your devotion to Lucy. Morals and principles are good, but if you don’t stick to them and keep trying to excuse them, might as well not even have them in the first place. Nothing worse than an *** pretending to be a saint.
Blank On Purpose July 9, 2013, 2:20 PM EST.
PLEASE TELL ME THEY DIDNT DO ANYTHING.
No but seriously if Rach took advantage of him we’re gonna have a problem
GhastlyGirl July 9, 2013, 2:21 PM EST.
Parf July 9, 2013, 2:23 PM EST.
not to mention how he was so hung up with Tess at the start, then swore he loved Lucy even more than Tess AND left Jazzi to be with her.
and did he ever have a thing for Daisy?
just when I was starting to get a high opinion of the guy…. now I remember all this and it seems he might be reverting back… ( assuming he ever even left it. )
At least he never did anything with Jazzi or Lucy… they’re both too good to be treated that way, they deserve better….
...... July 9, 2013, 2:24 PM EST.
Paulo the fruitcake catch’em all.
Knux-the-Killer July 9, 2013, 2:27 PM EST.
LOL! This is so hilarious.
People are all mad, but they are forgetting that BCB is a comic, and lately there hasn’t been a lot of comical happenings. I’m sure this was just Taeshi’s way of giving us a laugh. I can’t believe that Paulo would be so unfaithful to his lover Mike, though. Maybe Paulo can make it up to him with a BJ? (That’s what Rachel would suggest.)
Masonery July 9, 2013, 2:29 PM EST.
I didn’t know this was the making of CatDog.
DarthStar July 9, 2013, 2:31 PM EST.
@Blank On Purpose
What the hell gave you the idea that Paulo was a good, faithful person?
I think you need to read the comic before you start posting things like that. Clearly, you don’t know anything about his….
Masonery July 9, 2013, 2:31 PM EST.
(ahem) .. you guys remember that they are in highschool right?, emotional maelstrom and all that jazz? no? just going to put all of the blame on paulo or rachel? not going to wonder what happened after she found him crying his eyes out? not going to think about if she actualy cared about him? just gunna raeg because your ship is sinking, torpedoed, bombed? ill leave you guys to it then.. good luck with that!

HAHAHAHAHAH July 9, 2013, 2:46 PM EST.
Well Rachel DID say Paulo we’re great in bed back in that girls only sleep-over chapter.
And If I’m not mistaken, she has nothing against him, except back when he and Tess had a thing going on.
So this is merely pity or comfort sex, depending on your point of view.
Vito July 9, 2013, 2:46 PM EST.
so? is that his knee? or is it that his…Oh My…
CoolBad July 9, 2013, 2:53 PM EST.
When I was in highschool (its summer break lol) I was dating a guy freshman year (last year) and we were the “in-love couple” and I tried making him my first time, but he couldn’t get it up, so he said it was his fault and broke up with me and then he went and had a one night stand with a girl off in the woodlands somewhere…
@Muck, wtf this have to do with the comic?
Well it hurt like a birch that the guy who “loved me” and “wanted to be with me” couldn’t preform once with me, but some random **** he barely knew could get him going and then took him from me…
So maybe Paulo is the same as my ex, he can say what ever he wants but when it comes right down to it, his body/heart would know the truth.
Muck July 9, 2013, 2:56 PM EST.
Wake up this morning, remember BCB, read new comic, My reaction, Holy ******** dick nipples Paulo do you know what you have done!?!? (well if you two did have sex, I’m just hoping this turns into the same situation that happened with Paulo and Lucy )

Part of me does want Paulo to end up with Rach - she just seems like much more fun to be around, and she actually gives a **** about other people.
Smegirl July 9, 2013, 3:04 PM EST.
T.T FML Paulo… DUDE… come on! how did you go from crying to being in RACHEL’S BED??? i really hope that they didnt just have sex and if they did… i REALLY hope it’s Rachel’s fault… WHY MUST YOU BE SO SEXY WHEN YOU ARE SAD PAULO?
meep July 9, 2013, 3:05 PM EST.
oh come on Paulo, you’re my favorite I wanted you to be rational about it but guess not…
and I was actually hoping Rachel wouldn’t be slutty and would just be sympathetic this once but apparently not, I really hope it’s just like the Paulo/Lucy situation…
WellSnap July 9, 2013, 3:06 PM EST.
Judging by panel #4 I can see why Paulo is such a ladies man.
Sanitarium July 9, 2013, 3:06 PM EST.
Dammit, Paulo! D :<
Then again, there’s no actual evidence they slept together. I mean, just because they’re in the same bed, Rachel has a reputation of sleeping with everything, and Paulo doesn’t remember a thing, does NOT mean they had sex.
…Though it is a bit of wishful thinking.
I’m gonna be seriously ****** if Paulo actually did sleep with her. Then again, considering him, I shouldn’t actually be surprised.
Hunter July 9, 2013, 3:10 PM EST.
Sooooo…. people blaming paulo for this are the same people who gave girl kitty a free pass when the script was flipped. Just saiyan. Yer hypocrites.
And also a bunch of prudes.
Enough about that… dat last panel is priceless. I’m actually imagining what’shisface from quantum leap goin “ohhhh boy”
Try it, it fits perfectly.
XianaiX July 9, 2013, 3:11 PM EST.
ALSO… knowing Rachel as having openly admitted that she was a total ****, i highly doubt that they didnt have sex. i could be wrong but… i think we all know Rachel’s reputation proceeds her.

I hope it happened exaclty as what happened when lucy was at paulo’s house. I hope rachel didn’t take advantage of him. also I don’t think I would want to have sex in that state of mind. if paulo did, then he has definitely something wrong.
(anyway the probability that he did it is 100% since the chapter ended there, but a man can dream…)

Decision making… not your strong point.

To those thinking there’ll be a “Rachel Pregnancy Arc”, no. Cats and Dogs can’t get pregnant in this universe, Taeshi already elaborated on it earlier in the comic. Just pointing out.
I had a feeling this would happen. Rachel does really like him and Paulo needed comfort.
Follarch July 9, 2013, 3:51 PM EST.
looks like he screwed the pooch.. again.
kitsu July 9, 2013, 3:58 PM EST.
This is definitely a good ending to this chapter; a little less depression helps this serious matter. Though, a some above have pointed out, I think it is possible she just used him like an over-sized stuffed animal. Perhaps we will find out next…
Nix July 9, 2013, 4:03 PM EST.

Should’ve seen that one coming. But enough of all this resulted drama, I wanna see Lucy already!
Caitlynn Moss July 9, 2013, 4:29 PM EST.
Every time I think Paulo’s kind of a cool guy, he goes and pulls some of this crap. Way to demonstrate how much you love Lucy.
OTOH I never thought of Mike as being nice either—he’s well-behaved and all, but not particularly altruistic and fairly selfish.
So who’s the better guy? I could hang out with them, but I doubt I’d ever trust either very much. Both are so self-absorbed and think of the other person only when it serves their egos. Both cause pain left and right and then are completely surprised that everyone’s mad at them.
At this point I wouldn’t wish either of them on Lucy.
darklion July 9, 2013, 4:29 PM EST.

Verndari July 9, 2013, 4:30 PM EST.
You know how Paulo had that anti-cheater squad right before Mike committed to Sandy? Well, now HE’S cheating. On someone who happens to be/have just been in the hospital, no less.
Insanity_Prevails July 9, 2013, 4:32 PM EST.

You don ****’d it up again, you don ****ed it up again, you decided un**** it, then you ****’d it up even worse… so how does it feel to be the school ***** paulo.
vince July 9, 2013, 4:38 PM EST.
Maybe nothing actually happened between them. Maybe he was just hanging out with her at her house as she tried to get his mind off of things, passed out, and she crawled in the bed with him. In pillow talk, Jess did say Rachel was a ****, so she wouldn’t see anything wrong with it.

…..did they really screw when Paulo was incredibly emotionally unstable? I feel like Rachel knows better than that… like that time with Lucy and Paulo, they just fell asleep
Vega July 9, 2013, 5:27 PM EST.
HAHAHHAHAH Well she said she saw going to get him.
She wanted him
Shes going to have him..
Got him! AGIAN!
Mister O July 9, 2013, 5:28 PM EST.
I think the theory about this event mirroring “Another Shoulder” could make sense. Just because that night PROBABLY meant something for Paulo and MAYBE he would understand that sex is not the only means of stress relief, comforting and supporting he could get from anyone. The way he behaved back than seemed mature enough for him not to want to repeat Lucy’s mistakes. I hope that I’m not too optimistic about Paulo.
If the two did have sex, however, than I am very disappointed because come on, just. What. The. Duck.

Yu July 9, 2013, 5:32 PM EST.
Oh my God, the little pool of drool. Paulo, you cute little *****, you <3.
No, seriously. Kind of saw this happening even though I really didn’t want it to. I am a little upset about this and I don’t even know why.
Oh, and for some reason I feel really bad for Jasmine. Paulo is one of my favorite characters, no doubt about it, but God… He cannot be an easy ex to have.

Sooo… tell me again about how Paulo matured over the time. Thanatos was right and all that wishful thinking was for nothing. Paulo is still a jerk.

I KNEW IT.
In other news here are some fun facts.
Cats have spiked *******.
Dogs do not.
Rachel is a fan of cat dicks.
Ergo, Rachel is a massive masochist.
Enjoy mulling over that for a while.
Zerreth July 9, 2013, 6:01 PM EST.
I don’t get why everyone is saying how Paulo’s a jerk and hasn’t learned anything when Lucy did the exact same thing Paulo just did.When Mike rejected her Lucy went to Paulo’s house and this happened minus Paulo banging Rachel.And Paulo broke down when he learned that he couldn’t see Lucy again or confess.So he went to Rachel for comfort(well she kinda found him instead but whatever) Ok I’ll shut up now
Hi July 9, 2013, 6:14 PM EST.

Jessica U. Ingmann July 9, 2013, 6:14 PM EST.
Hmmm, well… At least he’s aware that he probably did something absolutely wrong… We don’t have to wait several chapters for him to realize it… Here’s hoping they just cuddled… … Though yeah, she probably used sex to calm him down.
Allsmiles July 9, 2013, 6:14 PM EST.
Knew that would happen.
Honestly how can Paulo be expected to be a great boyfriend to Lucy when he’s this easy to seduce and seems just a little TOO keen on doing anything sexual when a girl offers.
Death of Ink July 9, 2013, 6:15 PM EST.
I don’t think they banged I think he just passed our while crying or something.

but to be honest im pretty sure Pualo never really is gonna get Lucy. Those chances sunk and while back. so yup, I just sunk your SHIPS. <3
Doodles July 9, 2013, 7:07 PM EST.
ahh, i am loving all the hate that is going around please, keep crying over how an emotionally unstable highschooler did something he is probably going to regret. your tears are delicious.
Whistleblower July 9, 2013, 7:11 PM EST.
Haha I love this page, I have to say it’s pretty priceless in it’s simplicity.
I also love how you are portraying a number of high school type actions, reactions, and how they try to deal with stuff, from good to bad, to regretful and messed up.
But hey, even messed up events can contribute to something great, which is why I am loving BCB!
TarriPup July 9, 2013, 7:23 PM EST.
dammit Paulo how’d you expect to win over Lucy and tell her how you feel (i get that shes gone but still) if you do this ****

Actually this good be a good thing (please dont beat me to death Paulo Lucy shippers) if Mike is back to texting Sandy, and Paulo is back to being a Paulo, and David’s back to eating cake then maybe Taeshi will reset everyone back how they were before! or maybe Paulo’s just a ***** mongerer.

Its a comic relief from what we came from….now back to drama in next chapter.

Oh crud, oh wait, OH CRUD, OH WAIT!
I was gonna reference “Once in a Lifetime” but! but!
Holy cow, LUCY IS MOVING TO SANDY’S NEW HOMETOWN!
….. that’s my theory…
Huh? July 9, 2013, 10:06 PM EST.
Uhhhh.. he wasn’t drunk, so what’s with the memory loss? I sometimes really have questions regarding the story twists and turns. He should completely remember screwing the pooch, and there’s nothing wrong with it.

eyexofxtiger July 9, 2013, 10:55 PM EST.
Why is everyone assuming he did her. Just because he woke up in her bed doesnt mean anything necisarrily. Tashi has pulled bigger tricks.
Guest July 9, 2013, 10:56 PM EST.
Inb4 they just slept together but didn’t actually sleep together. Yeah.. that makes sense.. right? I feel like I’m the only one entertaining the idea that she wasn’t just like “hey, I know you’re sad, but let’s ****!”
Sleepology July 9, 2013, 11:03 PM EST.
Didn’t he woke up with Lucy one day?
Dorten July 9, 2013, 11:05 PM EST.
well theres logic for both sides, for then going at it with one another: similar logic to make up sex
for rhem just waking up together, look at the artists history

chase July 9, 2013, 11:19 PM EST.
Yup. That just proves it, ladies and gents. Paulo can’t stick with one person at all, no matter what he says to himself. OR CAN HE? this may not be what it looks like…

BlueBerry July 9, 2013, 11:36 PM EST.
I saw the page, and the first thing to pop into my head was Dragonball Z abridged. An abridge of whichever one Cooler was in, with Cooler says, “I hope someone picks up that phone, because I CALLED IT!” All you Coolers out there that called it, good for you!
Now to sit back and watch Paulo start to freak out about this.
Lost_Cookie July 9, 2013, 11:39 PM EST.
The hell, Paulo
Havent you learned from Lucy that crying on shoulders leads to consoling sex; you were her shoulder!
And how could you be temped by Rachel AGAIN!
Oh Paulo, you ****
frequentflyer July 9, 2013, 11:47 PM EST.
At least he got Chicken ^^
Blobby July 9, 2013, 11:52 PM EST.
Big surprise there. Paulo sure loves Lucy….yeah.
starfighter105 July 9, 2013, 11:57 PM EST.
My projection. This is only their sophomore year in high school. It will most likely last till the end of their senior year, (lest Taeshi decides to curtail it sooner than planned for other projects.) But I suspect that this was an intentional twist for the sake of HUGE long term character development. (We also still have the whole Augustus situation and his connection to that dude Lucy beat the crap out of.)
I still think ultimately Paulo will be the one with Lucy, but if he was perfect already he wouldn’t be that interesting of a character and we’d just see him pine for Lucy the rest of the series while everyone else develops and grows. He’s known for being very honor bound when in a committed relationship, but also known for being a ‘man *****’. This is his time to go down his own ‘hell hole’ as I like to call it. He needs to reassess himself if he really wants to be with Lucy and Lucy only. This is his big opportunity to develop as a character.
I mean its an equally pivotal moment for Mike as well to reassess who he is in relation to how he treats his friends and such, but I still don’t see him with anyone else other than Sandy, (not to say there won’t be drama in that department, be it through plot device or character stupidity, but drama none the less that won’t permanently end the relationship.)
I’m not surprised about Paulo’s…doings that night. Despite his calm egotistical ‘cool’ mask he’s actually a highly emotional and volatile character, (heaven forbid a popular ‘cool’ guy is secretly the sensitive one.) He had clearly convinced himself he’d never see Lucy again, (pretty convincing when he saw her room was completely empty already.) Like a drunk man on a self-destructive path he goes after one of the only targets he can think of, Mike. Despite calming down momentarily with Mike when Rachel arrived he was already lost again in his misery and couldn’t even throw up his usual ‘cool’ mask. While it’s an obviously stupid move screwing with Rachel he probably had convinced himself it didn’t matter anymore and any chance with Lucy was gone. It was clearly not the most logical choice at the time but it was less destructive than beating the hell outta Mike.
Just don’t think that Paulo’s actions are intentionally designed JUST to create drama for the comic. This is actually the kind of stuff that happens in real life. Just remember, they’re all still just in high school. Despite how mature the TV shows and books these days try to depict high school teens, they’re still just teenagers, they’re still figuring things out about the world, and sometimes they do it the hard way.
BetaMonkey July 9, 2013, 11:59 PM EST.
To everyone saying that Paulo made a mistake and didn’t actually care for Lucy or whatever, you’ve obviously never had a heartbreaking experience like that and had a rebound. It happens. Lucy did it at the very beginning of the story. I don’t think he was right to do it, but I can’t honestly blame him.
Jared sheep July 10, 2013, 12:17 AM EST.

FIRST TIME HAVING SEX ON A BED, ABOUT TIME PAULO.
Rachel Peculiar July 10, 2013, 12:20 AM EST.
Yall need to chill sex is not some magical thing. Its just sex and seeing how she cant get pregnant from him I don’t see the problem. He needed to feel wanted in his emotional state and its not like Rachel doesn’t have feelings for him. Paulo is sexually active so what. All the people hating on them for hooking up for a night…possibly more we don’t know. Have probably never had sex themselves. Intimacy is something you share with someone you love it’s not just sex it’s foreplay, trust, sensuality, and so much more. On the other hand two people who are just interested d in having some fun with each others body’s aren’t wrong or doing something dirty they have just as much right to enjoy themselves as any one in a relationship. It’s just a different expression. Don’t be hatein.
Fluffy July 10, 2013, 12:24 AM EST.
Tricking the girl into bedding you while you pretend to be all broken up over Lucy… Paulo you umm you dog you?
Steel Wings July 10, 2013, 12:26 AM EST.

Kuro July 10, 2013, 12:32 AM EST.
I think Taeshi is trying to make fun of this common plotline. I hope.
Just-A-Lurker July 10, 2013, 12:49 AM EST.
The only thing I can say about this is that I don’t know how to react to this development. Should I be annoyed? If so, at whom? One of them, both of them or none of them at all?
Should I be amused? This doesn’t seem like a laughing matter, even if it is Paulo and Rachel.
Should I be indifferent? It doesn’t feel right to think thusly.
I’m so confused.

After having read every comic from the beginning of the archive over the past few months, I can honestly say I have never connected with the characters in anything like I have in this comic. Now that I’m up to date, the suspense for the next updates are killing me!

Having sex is bad, unless there is a rainbow in the background, flying magical ponies puking out skittles of joy from their mouth, soft core music going on, and the sun beaming through the windows. You will dance around the subject of sex, because you both never did it, you are both very emotional about it, and you are both worried you will be disappointed. HA!
Come on you eggheads, life isn’t some cheap five buck Hollywood movie. They call it “movie magic” because life lacks it!
What you see in the movies is what you SHOULDN’T expect to happen in life and if you hold out believe that such things do or might, to put it frankly, you’re a few fuses short of a spark.
The girls aren’t all banging hot, the guys aren’t all cardboard gentleman cutouts, the bad guys don’t miss their shots, and people misunderstand each other a helluva lot more than they do in the movies. WELCOME TO LIFE!
Blank On Purpose July 10, 2013, 2:32 AM EST.
GOD DAMN IT…. I’m so addicted to this comic! Bittersweet candy bowl Indeed! Cant wait to see if Rachel is going to be more fleshed out now. She’s my favorite non main character xD
Memnocj July 10, 2013, 2:51 AM EST.
didn’t see that coming … not
Knight-A July 10, 2013, 3:17 AM EST.
A thought just came to mind; if they DID have sex, chances are Rachel probably won’t make much of a fuzz about it. So if this became an issue, the drama would probably come more from Paulo’s end than Rachel’s.
Subaru July 10, 2013, 3:22 AM EST.
I don’t care if sex can be just sex, if you say you’re committed to someone and ONLY that someone, then you cannot go hop in a bed with some other girl as soon as crap with that someone gets rough.
I don’t have a problem with the casual sex, to each their own alright?
I have a problem with the fact that he is massively contradicting himself yet again and he obviously isn’t sure what he really wants— that or he’s been playing at least one of the females he swore commitment to, but I kindofsortof think Paulo is better than that even if he’s not using his brain right now.
If you make a serious commitment to someone, and then they get suddenly very ill ( harmed, whatever ) and need to be whisked off to who-knows-where in order to be healthy, that doesn’t just magically remove the commitment.
You don’t find out that your serious boyfriend ( for lack of a better term ) got cancer and have a sob fit and then just hop into bed with some other dude, even if you are distraught.
And yes, he may never have actually informed Lucy of this commitment, ( we don’t actually know whether he did or not because we still don’t really know what happened at the play, ) but he still made it to himself and a few others, so it is in fact there.
Also, I’m aware that it’s probably intended to be comedy relief, and it will probably be like it basically never happened in the next chapter— but it was still a contradictory and silly move on his part.
...... July 10, 2013, 3:26 AM EST.
I was not expecting that. Thank-you for ending the comic like this, it’s a lot happier than the rest of this chapter xD
Hey he drools too, high-five Paulo
Linkification July 10, 2013, 3:38 AM EST.
Paulo just did the thing he stopped Lucy from doing a while back. Huh. Awkward. Wonder if Rachel told him it was a bad idea, like he did for Lucy?
Hmm… knowing Rachel, probably not.
daft_inquisitor July 10, 2013, 4:44 AM EST.
I do like how everyone instantly thinks that Paulo slept with her. Just, really guys? Is that your insta thought that they had sex.

Zero July 10, 2013, 5:04 AM EST.
What a CATastrophe! Rachel is so adorable..
Udyr July 10, 2013, 5:52 AM EST.
I knew there was a reason as to why I just can’t like Paulo as much as I think I should… THIS. I mean it’s probably not entirely his fault (thanks, Rachel ) but still, he has done it before and those times were completely because he wanted to. And now he’s angry at Mike because Lucy “the love of his life” is moving, when seriously, he’s been hitting on girls left and right! Also, we don’t actually know if they did it again but considering their past interactions and their behaviors we can safely say that, yes, they did it AGAIN.
I would be extremely happy if they didn’t actually though because that would make Rachel a better character. And honestly it would point out that Paulo only has that on his mind, as it is his first thought.

Jesus christ Paulo, you hypocrite.
StushiJaguar July 10, 2013, 10:21 AM EST.
I’m calling it now, Rachel and Paulo didn’t bang. I’m guessing they went back to her place and ended up falling asleep after Paulo cried himself out, like with Lucy in Another Shoulder. I think Taeshi’s pulling an M. Knight Shamalamadingdong on us. I mean, I wouldn’t think of Rachel as the kind of person to take advantage of someone like that, especially Paulo. I always thought she was like Paulo where even if she was super into the person she knew when to hold back on sex she knew the other person would regret.
I really don’t think it’s in either of their characters to have actually had sex. Also, a whole damn group of kids can’t be having THIS much drama all through the circle, right? …..Right?
