Veronica: Breast-pokin’. Lucy feels like such a delicate little flower despite being completely rough around the edges that I felt wrong as I drew it. You terrible boy, David.

OH. How does David not know about…. that. Moron. Also, Paoulo, what is so embarrassing about being touched by Lucy? Love the expressions from the rest of the party.

Lmao, you can tell that Lucy is being aroused by David’s prodding, even in her state, as que’d by the moans and blushing. But I love Paulo’s statement, followed by the fact that there are 5 other girls besides Lucy. Also, ****** is totally thinking, “This is so unfair Q.Q.” And lastly, if Lucy was awake and David did that, he he got hit, he wouldn’t end up on the other side of the island, he’d end up flying into the sun!

Paulo looks shocked, Lily looks to be in disbelief, Yashy is crying, Sue looks ******, Alec is facepalming for David, ****** looks heartbroken, but it’s Tessa’s sickened face that makes me love this scene.
She looks like she’s about to barf, which is odd since it’s hinted she’s the most “expirenced” at this point.

Lucy looks so tiny in David’s paws…Speaking of which…

Panel 7-8: I know it’s wrong, but I actually REALLY like these panels. Not for David; no, he’s a rapist. But look at Lucy. Look at her blushing face. She’s ENJOYING the feeling of being groped…Wow. Just wow. That has a ridiculous amount of sexual connotations. It’s more intense than anything I think we’ve seen thus far, with the exception of Confrontation and Love My Way. :O

I’m glad Paulo isn’t amused by David’s behavior. And David is pretty nice about the situation; “pass the unconscious girl around! Everyone gets to feel her boobs!” I can seriously imagine David doing something like that. Now T know that if he and David ever fought over a girl, David would be more than willing to share her…As wrong as I think that is.

Final Panel: Perfection. LucyXPaulo. :D

This reminds me of a court show me and my friends were watching.the dude was charged with rape and when he went to testify he said “it’s not rape if she liked it” the judge turned to the woman and said “did you like it” and she nodded.all the charges were dropped and he went away Scot free lol.

Comment ID #193645

This is not rape. This is violation of boundaries, this is social taboo, this is sexual harassment, this is “non-consensual inappropriate contact,” it’s a whole bunch of bad things, but it’s not rape. You say that without knowing what the word actually entrails.

David’s a ****** and doesn’t know what’s right and wrong. Paulo was literally in the middle of saying it was wrong when he was pushed into the contact and was too shocked to pull away before Lucy woke up and ended it. Lucy was justified, it’s not like it was right, but it. Is not. Rape.

You all exaggerate too much. Far too much, to compare a semi-innocent touch like this to willful seizing and desecration of one’s innocence, security, and self-esteem, the malicious and selfish taking of one’s most personal being and using it for basest of pleasures.

You do not know what rape is. Shut the **** up.

That is all.

I never really understood why anyone could find David funny and awesome and even their favorite character. What? I mean seriously? This comic is full of deep characters, and someone loves that abomination of a comedy relief? Sexual harassment is fun? He’s so cute and funny for pressuring Paulo to be a sexist, self-centered ****face again? David can go to hell, he just makes me cringe every time I see his stupid face.

Although what David did was Equivalent to 7 Shades of Uncomfortable, making an Entire Rainbow of Squickiness, I Find that I can Not stay Mad at him for Long, as I can tell that he Never really does Anything out of Malice, though he should Probably be kept in a “Special” School, seeing as he’s very much a Danger to himself & Others…

It kinda bothers me how all they really seem to worry about is Lucy. Like, sure, she just watched Mike fall off the bridge-cliff-thing, but y’know it’s not like Mike actually fell off the bridge-cliff-thing or anything. >v>
