I miss yashy at this point she’d be calling Daisy a “*****” again XD. Also, I find it funny that Rachel calls Tess a “bitch” when Rachel is actually the bitch. Just saying -.-
Edit: Does Daisy know what happened at Acapulco yet(in this flashback) or did everybody decide to keep it a secret? Hmm, to the archives.

I’m thinking daisy is about to lose it lol. If it were me, I’d have Rachel on the floor tied up in a knot. XD

@Legion I’d bet rachel would love being… yes you’ll get where this will go on Legion, don’t you? :P

And it seems David was right if Rachel thinks so too, the two DO make hankypanky

I hear Rachel snickering in my head like that dog in that one racing cartoon that’s on Boomerang a lot. It was Dynamite Dog from Wacky Races :P

Aw, why are they being such B******? Tess isn’t perfect, but I bet they’ve made worse mistakes than her. They’re such hypocrites and they don’t even realize it. Well, that’s ignorance for you.

All right, at 7:10 it’ll be my 17th birthday! Yays! Man I’ve been reading this for about 2 years now and I don’t care what anyone says I love bittersweet candybowl it’s an amazing comic. Thanks Taeshi. :)

two slutty bitches who keep goin on about tess’ past, which seemed forced on her, and they are the ones who become REAL bitches, and *****, with no one to blame but themselves.

i’d love to see them die alongside paulo… preferably in a way similar to how deaths are portrayed in “happy tree friends”… tenfold.

since i’m not in a a financial position to donate/pledge… i’ll never get my hands on that BCB candy, i guess… if anyone here has had some before, can you describe it in detail to me?

i want to taste it with my eyes.

Ah, the “My maternal instincts are kicking in for the honorable loner” type deal. I bet Lucy would get the same treatment from Mike, since she is a loner, but more of the “jerkish” type.
Dude, but yeah, I’m really enjoying how Daisy is getting a lot of panel-time in this chapter so far. Something about the way she’s being drawn is cool.
The joke in this page is really funny and if you don’t get it, yeah, not going there. Anyways, cool stuff. Can’t wait to count out your gold, I mean see where this goes.

Hahaha, although she’s angry for the joke, she can’t help being embarassed just by the subject! :D Daisy’s ingenuousness makes her a little predictable, but not less adorable!

Rachel nailed that one A* comeback there, I think I’ll use that one soon :p
I guess this leads up to Rachel’s and Jessica’s plans to screw Paulo…
Ever wonder that since Paulo and Jessica later admit (not to each other) that they were each others first an since jessica feels so bad that they might get together? I haven’t seen any PauloxJessica shippers around so I’m guessing no one has thought of this :D

foreveryoung5 September 21, 2012, 11:07 AM EST.

MIGHT be because Jessica is busy thinking about Lucy.

In all kinds of positions.

Hooray for innuendos! And of course Daisy is the type to blush at them. In this situation, I would probably be the dog (forgot her name).

Comment ID #229034

Well, I have to say, I’m rather liking the crosshatching thing you’ve been doing for these pages. :) And @mikedawn, it does seem fit for the comic to be in black and white for now because this technically takes place in the past. ;)

This and homestuck were my entire summer. Thank you so much for not only keeping me entertained but sucking me in and telling a story that captivates me in a way that I didn’t think was possible from a simple comic series.

Oh god Rachel…. pfffft. I love Daisy’s face.

@ audreywolf @ nukafire this is just a freindley suggestion if you find your self coming here 2 to 5 times a day or more you should give some thout to be comig a member 160 more pages and a shiny name. And it seems daisy gets embarrassed by just about any thing shes so inocente.

Blue fox September 22, 2012, 11:13 AM EST.

Taeshi should start drawing from live models and practicing construction with 3d forms/anatomy more (ie. Michael Hampton, but more simplified for this comic) when it comes to full figures. Her stuff is looking so nice, and it could truly get to the next level if she started working on such things. Even just a dedicated week or two of drawing hands (by drawing her own hands/ones from life and using: d4xv0nj’s kind of method) could make a solid difference.

When are you gonna stop slaughtering the English language?
Also tone down the asslicking a bit, it’s getting just as annoying.

Whoa nice job referencing Chapter 23: Humble Approach page 1 with the chocolate milk fight I just noticed it while I was rereading. This comic is just so amazing :love:.

@ stodus yes yes im soory im buchering the english language. And I have nothing bad to say about the comic is that so bad?

Blue fox September 23, 2012, 8:24 AM EST.

Comment ID #229075

An *******, Vero is doing a fine arts degree and is working on a lot of that - she has the bundles of hand sketches and life drawing studies to prove it! But anatomy is hard work, and it’s hard to make BCB a clear showcase of what she learned without veering far into furry territory. It’s a very unfortunate tension to manage.

SuitCase September 23, 2012, 11:35 AM EST.

Comment ID #229082

I think Taeshi should draw whatever she wants to draw. :) The best drawing comes from the heart. It doesn’t matter if we think it’s bad, as long as you think it tells the story you want to tell.

Anyway, Rachel. Bad. Daisy. AWWWW! :D
