Thanks for reading!!!
“You take as much time as you need” sounds like “.. so i can get my mitts on you” but it’s totally not intended that way! Rachel does care about Paulo and wants him to not feel pressured to get over things. She wants to be supportive.
Cassidy August 6, 2013, 1:00 PM EST.
Awh, poor Paulo! ;-;

This shading looks so soft! *¬*
I think that Rachel may like to sleep around and stuff, but she’s being really nice and supportive for Paulo! I’ve come to like her more now, she acts like a good dog :3

I really like this side of rachel, its nice to see the human (dog?) side of her.

The “Thank you for reading!” scared me.
Now on to Lucy!
LancelotOcelot August 6, 2013, 1:02 PM EST.
Hahahahahaha August 6, 2013, 1:03 PM EST.
That is a very nice thing to say Rachel.
And since Paulo mentioned Lucy, I’m still wondering about how she got into such a mess.
Keyblade Dragon August 6, 2013, 1:03 PM EST.
So Rachel is basically actually being supportive of Paulo, despite having no official relationship with him. You go, girl!
And I like how she responds to that statement about Lucy. It’s basically “Yeah, maybe she would, but that doesn’t matter. Take your time and get over it at your own pace”.
Welp, that’s another chapter done by the amazing Taeshi. Tomorrow we see something completely different! Or just new. Or just sorta different. Or a rehash. Or something else. I dunno.
Oceanus92 August 6, 2013, 1:05 PM EST.
It seems like I finally found a ship to call my home.

I love this comic…soooooo much! PLUSHIES! That’s what we need! If there were plushies, I WILL BUY THEM…well of Lucy, Daisy and Rachel at least
kaminari683 August 6, 2013, 1:08 PM EST.
Nech chapter, Paulo wakes up in her bed …again
DK3 August 6, 2013, 1:09 PM EST.
Have really grown to like Rachael over the last chapter and it does seem like we could have PauloxRachael for some time at least Paulo doesn’t exactly have the best track record with relationships. well maybe they wont get together right off the bat as it sound like Rachael wants Paulo to sort his feelings out and decide what he wants.
Chrisd765 August 6, 2013, 1:09 PM EST.
Nice-Hero August 6, 2013, 1:10 PM EST.
Yeah, definitely all for PauloxRachel.
Lord Lemmy August 6, 2013, 1:10 PM EST.
I really hope Paulo doesn’t give up on Lucy too easily through sadness :c
Ink August 6, 2013, 1:10 PM EST.
D’aww. Even though we all ended up thinking of Rachel as a big ***** for some reason, she really does seem like a very normal person.. and caring. I feel like **** for thinking of her like I did.
Jonathan August 6, 2013, 1:16 PM EST.
Hehe; I gained a good chunk of respect for Rachel in this chapter :3
Chocothunda August 6, 2013, 1:16 PM EST.
I hope Paulo and Rachel end up hooking up. I think they’d be great together.
jose August 6, 2013, 1:18 PM EST.
this is why I love Rachel, she’s awesome
Owonyc August 6, 2013, 1:18 PM EST.
Rachel just wants to “comfort him” yeah! That’s all!
OK I lie: She wants to jump his bones!
Paulo! Give that doggie your bone, boy! ASAP!!!
(I wonder if that will pass “moderation”… I hope so!)
PauloXRachel = not bad! Wouldn’t last too long though.
5Cats August 6, 2013, 1:21 PM EST.
Rachel is so much nicer than Lucy. She’s actually supportive and patient instead of being selfish and hypocritically dependant - I do like Lucy more though now she’s matured
Pring August 6, 2013, 1:25 PM EST.
Rachel easily has the best character development of the group this chapter. She may have slept around, but she’s been shown to have far more understanding and caring than anyone else in the comic. Definitely loving the changes in tone lately, the writing has improved and it’s awesome.
Zorak August 6, 2013, 1:27 PM EST.
Why has no one gone to visit Lucy?
kami August 6, 2013, 1:31 PM EST.
D’aww, Rachel’s such a sweety. c’: I’m really starting to like the idea of PauloxRachel to be honest, and I hope they’ll keep up a good relationship because GOSH are these two are such cuties! <3 *squeal*
Furball August 6, 2013, 1:35 PM EST.
i love that rachel genuinely cares about paulo and that she will be there for him, but not be afraid to tease him a little about the situation (seeing as how he brought it all on himself)!! rachel is a real cutie aaa i admire her
i hope paulo leans on her support some more
Alicia August 6, 2013, 1:41 PM EST.
And then it starts over again…
Meow August 6, 2013, 1:42 PM EST.
Woah, I really wish I had a friend like Rachel.. She acted amazingly in these latest pages.
I don’t wanna guess where it takes (coz I don’t like spoilers!), but sounds quite very intriguing this time!
I’m so looking forward to seeing how the plot unweaves this time! <3
Will August 6, 2013, 1:42 PM EST.
This is the worst day of your life so far, paulo teen age angst is not done with your *** yet
lov/hate/hurt August 6, 2013, 1:42 PM EST.
Come on Taeshi, let me imagine my own inferences for her actions.
StraightFace August 6, 2013, 1:44 PM EST.
I might have just become a PauloxRachel shipper. Oops.
Patrick August 6, 2013, 1:46 PM EST.
As much as I miss Lucy, I’m really liking seeing some of the other characters more.
I’d love to see what’s been going on with some of them. Specifically Abby, since I want to know what was up with his random jealousy. And Jess, what the heck is up with her? Is she really all into Lucy? And now something’s just occurred to me: Jess would be the first gay character we’ve encountered. Is it just me or is this cast a little heteronormative?
Eemia August 6, 2013, 1:51 PM EST.
Mmmm… I like how understanding she is… I’m hoping that this attempt at comforting isn’t sexually based at the least.
Allsmiles August 6, 2013, 1:55 PM EST.
wow Rachel just showed that she isnt an entire ****… she just comforted paulo which is amazing. i cant believe shes that mature. what in the world happened.
1wolfblade August 6, 2013, 1:57 PM EST.
People are saying that Rachel turned out to be a lovable character despite sleeping around. But in reality, her sex life has nothing to do with her character. Rachel has always been sweet and kind, even back when Jess was struggling! I think expounding on her character was a brilliant move on Taeshi’s part. I just hope she can stick around for longer!
Anne August 6, 2013, 1:58 PM EST.
good page … i like it … lets see what we will get mañana
the lord inquisitor bob August 6, 2013, 2:01 PM EST.
Okay, I love Rachel.
Jared sheep August 6, 2013, 2:05 PM EST.
@Anne Absolutely, she’s just a sweet girl, not a sweet girl in spite of anything.
Really coming to like Rach now we’re seeing more of her.
DiamondMX August 6, 2013, 2:15 PM EST.
oh no i think im falling in love with rachel’s personality
Whimsicott August 6, 2013, 2:18 PM EST.
Rachel is so sweet and lovable…
… or is she just biding her time so she can get some?
Huh? August 6, 2013, 2:26 PM EST.
Greetings! I recently started reading, and flew through the pages, and I wanted to say, it was fun to watch how your art style progressively improved. I don’t want to do any fan words, all I wanted to say is that reading this was quite an experience, I enjoyed it, and the story, and wanted to say thanks to you for writing and drawing it.

I’m not saying that paulo is immature or that jasmine is wrong (same thing, lol), but that she may have said it in a spiteful way out of jealousy. there are better and less painful ways to tell people their shortcoming.

I wonder if Rachel will ever tell him that bed morning thing was a joke…wait, was it? Eh?
Wat August 6, 2013, 3:07 PM EST.
Ok, newfound respect for Rachel in this scene. I kinda thought at first she might of just been after some sweet Paulo lovin’ but this page disproves that. It’s good he has someone to be supportive of him right now, even if it came from a totally unexpected place.
Lumi August 6, 2013, 3:32 PM EST.
Oh my god, RACHEL! STOP BEING SO AWESOME! You’re driving me nuts with how considerate and kind you are, do you even know what universe you’re living in??
Follarch August 6, 2013, 3:35 PM EST.
Rachel is the chick for this guy, trust me. That is the kind of chick he NEEDS, and as it turns out, what you WANT (in this case, Lucy) is not what you should have.

I heart Rachel. Sure she’s promiscuous, but that isn’t ALLLL she is. She’s actually a very sweet-natured person. She was ****** to Tess because well, once upon a time Tess was a royal B*tch. She actually cares about Paulo. I’m shipping this! Where is my stamp of approval!? x
OldRen August 6, 2013, 5:44 PM EST.
I don’t even know what to say any more. >
..... August 6, 2013, 5:47 PM EST.
What i love abought racheal is that she can show us that being a **** doesn’t ruin your character. People rag on her because she likes to get some. If a guy sleeps around he’s a player but if a girl sleeps around she’s a ****. The fact that she likes to get around does not tarnish her name, she’s an extremly careing person. And for that matter she’s not realy that big a **** as people make her out to be. She’s pretty, and could get her pick of the litter (pun). We don’t know her real past history dating, she’s slept with paulo, thats all we know. We know that it wasn’t her first time. I think her only problem is that she doesn’t form a true blue relationship with the guy she likes. I’m all for PauloxRacheal. I feel that Paulo would be good for lucy, since she needs a hero. I think PauloxJazz was a solid friendship, but if Paulo and Racheal hooked up i’d never discourage it. Yet i wonder if daisy and paulo will ever have a moment. I believe abby’s going to lose Daisy, so Paulo would be right there.
JustSomeCritic August 6, 2013, 5:48 PM EST.
hahahhaa taeshi read my mind, i totally thought that of rachel
hopes for lucy to appear again soon.
Knight-A August 6, 2013, 6:08 PM EST.
I just recently thought of something. David is said to have his moments of brilliance and such, even though he’s normally a total dope. This makes me wonder if David will be the one to bring Lucy back. After all, he’s probably the type to go out looking for her on his own and actually manage to find her. I’d pay to see that chapter. Seriously.

when a person love someone you feel, is it strange that fondly.
give him another chance (according to me, of course).
Be happy with the people you love and follow your path.
Nice-Hero August 6, 2013, 7:40 PM EST.
How the might have fallen. Paulo is now deprived of all of his many love interests, save for Rachael. Jazz is gone, Lucy’s gone, Daisy’s not an option… Rachael’s all he has left, really.
naAr August 6, 2013, 7:42 PM EST.
Paulo, you’ve come a long way from the douche nozzle of the past! You’ll get through this!

LucyXRachel will end up with their own Abbey/Molly?
Honor August 6, 2013, 10:03 PM EST.
Oh, Paulo. Sometimes you need someone to tell you to suck it up. Sometimes you need someone to sit there and listen. Which one is your friend and which one is your love interest is completely up to you, though. :3
Neveko August 6, 2013, 10:34 PM EST.
I’m still confused. Did they actually have sex or not?
Renoku August 6, 2013, 10:42 PM EST.
Wow, this chapter has really been all over the place! Paulo and Rachel drama, then Paulo and Daisy awesomeness, then Paulo and Abbey drama, then Mike and Sue drama, then Paulo and Rachel awesomeness, and finally Paulo and Jasmine drama, all tied together with awesome humor! Lots of places to go from here, I’m guessing more Sue grilling Mike about Lucy, or possibly we’ll get to see some of what Jessica’s feeling, I’d like that… Great story, Taeshi, keep it up!!
Sambo August 6, 2013, 10:50 PM EST.
Part of me wants to pair these two together, I don’t know why but I think they’d be well together. Rachal seems like a good partner for paulo, sure she rips on him about things but she’s really just trying to lighten the mood and just be there for him.
SXR123 August 6, 2013, 11:14 PM EST.
Aww… Rachel truly is a sweetie-pie.
Just-A-Lurker August 6, 2013, 11:55 PM EST.
I’m starting to like this pairing. I think this might be a relationship Paulo can actually keep going.
Oh God please no… not like that… no…
Pyre_of_Onyx August 7, 2013, 12:36 AM EST.
She wants to be supportive, but those darn teenage hormones just keep escalating!
Tacsi August 7, 2013, 1:24 AM EST.
I’m freaking loving Rachel in this chapter. At first I thought she was going to be a throw away character, but she’s showing to be a good emotional anchor. A perfect example of what actual experience (even if it’s just a year or two’s difference) in the world can do for you. She didn’t get all dramatic when Paulo pushed her off, she’s even being there (and not bitter, let’s not forget that) for Paulo while he’s in pain. She’s good peeps, she knows when to play the jester and when to give a sympathetic ear and shoulder for someone in need.
buchanen_neket August 7, 2013, 1:48 AM EST.
…and this is the page where I started shipping Paulo and Rachel.
No seriously, this is actually so cute. She’s showing she’s interested in Paulo, but she understand he’s in love with Lucy, and is being supportive and sensitive of that.
Most girls would be jealous, even nice girls - anyone would be jealous in Rach’s situation and that’d be completely understandable. A good parallel is Lucy; even when she tried to be supportive and friendly, it was clear she was jealous and dismayed about Mike and Sandy. But not Rachel; she’s actually insanely understanding about the situation and really supportive. Not many people would be the same. Like. Paulo. This girl is a keeper. A KEEPER.
Ali August 7, 2013, 2:20 AM EST.

Turtle August 7, 2013, 4:13 AM EST.
i have a bad feeling that this X
thing is going to end badly
she really does like him, but Paulo is (right now)
too emotionally detached from everything
that at one point Rachel is going to get hurt
trying to be close to Paulo ending this with
Rachel hating Paulo
making Paulo even more emotionally

Rachel is actually a pretty nice gal.
DekuMarth August 7, 2013, 7:50 AM EST.
Noooo I really want paulo and lucy to get together just to see what it would be like. Why isn’t paulo visting lucy in the hospital?
romanticsas August 7, 2013, 7:55 AM EST.
@romanticsas: I don’t think anyone is allowed to visit Lucy at this point, except for her family ofcourse.
I always knew Rachel was a sweetheart. She forgave Tess prettily easily too. I admire that in a person.
LH August 7, 2013, 8:38 AM EST.
@romanticsas: We already know what it would be like if they got together. We got a whole “what if” chapter about it.
daft_inquisitor August 7, 2013, 9:16 AM EST.
Hmm, I’d ship it. o:
Chiba August 7, 2013, 9:59 AM EST.
I don’t know I kinda have been seeing Tess and Rachel as the most mature characters probably because they literally are the closest to adults they have both passed the right of a passage along with Sue I’d believe all of them have become adults I’d say……….disregard the fact I think its only them who have really slept with people more then once kekeke Not that its what makes you mature but I wonder if it doesn’t help. Just thinkin out loud…………..
Valati August 7, 2013, 10:01 AM EST.
So Abbey and Daisy are still together, now it looks like Paulo is with Rachel, now all we need to do is figure out how David, Mike, Jessica, Sue, Lucy(?), Sandy, and Tess fit together…
Misanthrope August 7, 2013, 10:12 AM EST.
Hey I would like to thank you taeshi for focusing more on the said characters you finally ended the whole jasmine sub-plot (I thoughy you were just goin to forget about her) and Rachel gets in the spotlight (please don’t let Paulo end up with her my Paulo x Lucy feels are still very big even with her gone) and question what is happining with Jess? She like lucky to right? So what is her deal in this? But keep doin what your doing an one last thing. Why doesn’t the app have comments I really wish it did so I didn’t have to go to safari to leave comments?
Dr.Rockit August 7, 2013, 10:26 AM EST.
That’s it. I am officially a PauloXRachel shipper, for the meantime anyway but still PauloXTess and PauloXDasiy somewhere deep inside.
RPG Nerd August 7, 2013, 11:05 AM EST.
@buchanen_neket. For you previous comment to me on the previous page. Yes I know that it is absolutely none of Jasmine’s business who Paulo is with or not. I was just throwing down some basic foundation of where I stand in all of this.
RPG Nerd August 7, 2013, 11:10 AM EST.
i love this page ♥ Rach is my second fav character just because can’t wait till the next episode (is like fan girl, i’m squeaking )
Hunter August 7, 2013, 11:11 AM EST.
Back again! This is a very interesting chapter because of the fact it has some small revelations about how things may end up. Even though it was only touched on a little in this chapter, I do NOT think Sue is going to give up on finding out what Mike did to cause Lucy to do this. She may have had to give up for now because of Tess and the others, but Sue is a very determined character and even though we rarely see her, she does honestly care about Lucy. Most of her caring is shown in smaller gestures like buying her a slushie, helping her carry her pets, and giving her her space when she asks for it. However, the play was a HUGE display of how much she cares because she pretty much tailor made it for Lucy to show that underneath the outer layers, on the inside Lucy is a kind, sweet, person. So with that in mind I think Sue trying to find out what Mike did will come to a boil, and soon.
I really liked the interactions between Jazz, Paulo, and Rachel. Jazz I think for the most part is trying to find all the negative about Paulo right now because she is honestly hurt. As she said herself she really liked him, but he broke up because his heart was somewhere else. She was really obviously jealous of the fact that Paulo was with Rachel because she jumped to the conclusion that Rachel was who he left her for. That most likely made her think that he left her because she wasn’t “putting out” and plucked at some insecurities she might have had. So to me, her bluntly saying all those things was more of a lashing out because she was hurt and a bit jealous more so than anything, even if she did come to the realization he was immature (which he is) I think it was something that came about when she began thinking more on the negatives. When you really like someone you tend to look at them through rose-colored glasses and she pretty much had them slapped off her face.
Rachel is honestly a fascinating and great character. I actually rather dislike how so many people focus on her sex life. Her sex life has absolutely nothing to do with who she is. Even back when they called her a gigantic **** she was always acting kind and joking around to try and get people to not be angry. She’s been a great support for Jess in all her problems, and puts on a brave face even when her own brother is in turmoil. Our first meeting with her, yes, she didn’t seem all that great but she and Paulo very obviously had great chemistry from the get go. She very quickly showed that she was a good person and was always trying and willing to help others, even helping to comfort Jazz when she and Paulo had their first fight. I think her actions on those accounts speak volumes more than how many times she has sex.
That’s just my take on it, I can’t wait for the next chapter to start ^^
