Veronica: I’m glad Abbey has believed him this time!! Sometimes you just gotta take people at their word and not try to play 4D chess.

I don’t think I’ve actually actively shipped anything (like, I’ve been into certain pairings but I wouldn’t say I *shipped* them? Idk) until now but man, the sauce on this one

Paulo is SO smug!! Gosh I love him haha

Loving these excellent paulo panels

Paulo about to come in with that forgive and forget power. Gawd I hope he and Abbey can get a fresh start. I think them combining their views on stuff will make them both better people. Paulo can gain some respectful restraint/boundaries and Abbey can learn how to view things from more perspectives ❤️

It’s really comforting to see Abby’s evolution from a sexist jerk to a friendly neurotic. (Sexist as in thinking girls are in need of protection, not the cad sort.)

Abbey: Please stop staring at me like that, you’re scaring me.

Paulo: No.

Abbey: (gulp)

Aaaah I love this. I know Paulo is acting like a smug lil shit but I think if he really believes Abbey to be genuine, it's gunna be really sweet. Paulo is like the only emotionally mature child in the group and I love him

Depends if you count Augustus in the group as well, he's certainly matured a TON emotionally with Lucy's help.

Man that one was a while ago, but I can't imagine Paulo ever forgetting it.

Ah, the unmitigated joy of having the moral high ground.

Ew. I normally like Paulo but I don’t remember~ him ever apologising for that year or so of bullying Abbey, literally using him as a footstool in class. Boy, just ‘cause Abbey royally screwed up in attacking you doesn’t mean you have the unmitigated moral high ground.

I mean, it’s good for Abbey to be forced to be humbled in this situation. Just… Paulo’s reaction feels icky to me after he bullied the guy for a year or so. Maybe Abbey can trigger some character development on that.

Yup. Very fair. But it just kinda seems like Paulo's mindset doesn't really dwell on stuff, so unless Abbey brings it up as a problem, Paulo probably isn't going to realize it's something that's still affecting Abbey. All the more reason to hope it gets brought up!


Comment ID #18535

He actually does apologize pretty directly in Time Out https://www.bittersweetcandybowl.com/c108/p6


Comment ID #18536

He even says “I mean it though” and seems pretty sad. Abbey dismisses it and changes the subject to Daisy, resulting in Paulo lashing out.
