Author commentary

Veronica: Man, this totally sums up the first three flashback comics in a better way.. I tried to explain as much as I could.. so I guess the flashback comics from before could be used for a guide to go more indepth with some things like the issue with Sandy.

The fang in the mouth on panel 9 makes me think Paulo for some reason…

Middle School sounds like Primary School in America. Who even talks like that when they’re that young?

But wait, didn’t Paulo in the beginning of this chapter say “I don’t know, she was like this when I met her in 5th grade” but she didn’t get that way till middle school (7th grade.) PLOT HOLE?

Lucy shoulda kicked the **** outta that mysterious stranger.

Middle schoolers think that, since they aren’t in elementary, they are adults, so that kinda stuff happens a lot. And such is the basis of my wanting to throw the Earth into the sun…

I only ask that you hold off on that whole “Earth-into-the-sun” thing for a bit. Lemme buy some summerhome property in the antarctic, first.

Hope that unseen guy wasn’t Paulo…he isn’t THAT much of a dick, dear God…

This is very nice. Glad we got some origins on Lucy. :)

I love the irony of “Oh well” in Panels 4 and 7. Great comic!

:unsure: Oh boy, is that Paulo? The resemblance is kinda scary. Kinda seems like he’d do that, in my opinion.

NintendoSegaSonyGuy, have you even been reading the comic up to this point?

paulo is WORSE than that, he calls mike a cheater for no reason, and turns every girl in school against him and they’ve proceeded to beat mike into a bloody mess for absolutely no reason atleast three times now.

he is always hitting on lucy, despite being beaten every time he does so, he makes disgusting remarks and takes credit for things he didn’t do, in “confrontation” lucy was almost raped by the looks of it, and he didn’t do a damn thing to help.

paulo is the worst character in this entire comic simply because he is evil and impure in every possible way… he even suggested molesting lucy a few pages back.

@Milos: That’s not Paulo, it’s Alejandro. (Notice the fang and that he calls Lucy “blue eyes”.) Alejandro did try to mentor Paulo in being “cool” once… He also said Paulo had good taste in women, noting some of his earlier attempts to hit on Lucy. Long story short, that’s where Paulo’s less savory traits came from.

Thanatos is so right. Paulo is a pervert and a big menie to Mike. I really don’t like him…

wow thats all… THATS ALL? COME ON NO TRAUMA WHATSOEVER? My childhood was a far greater time of strife than that.

He ignores her for Sandy and when she leaves he comes back weeping to Lucy, she takes him back without a word and he says , and I quote ” The dependency never left” instead of ”Wow, Lucy is such a good friend not to give me **** for the way I treated her for so long, for the way I turned my back on her just when she started being open and honest and maybe even caring , for the fact that a few years after that I will crush her soul without blinking” …
,,Nah I’ll just be the superior being whit no faults and grace her whit my presence” :nope: I’d say I’m just being overly dramatic but … I’m not :/
