She will always want him. Its just a fact at this point. Also, Hug, then that comment. Rachel is incredible at making things awkward. She reminds me of a female Paulo, always with in innuendo, always. Plus, why does Jessica look like a meth-head, with the tired looking eyes, the messy hair and the relatively emotionless face.
Still, you gotta love how Daisy doesn’t even try to hide her love for Mike. I mean, if you’re in a relationship, you may as well make an attempt to hide your blatant attraction to someone else. Either way, I can’t imagine Abbey will notice any time soon, he’s to sad over everything else to pay attention to other stuff, now that the crazy childhood **** is coming back to him.
The “lil’ grey one”, yet another nickname for Mike.

Pouty Daisy looks cute :)
@Nikita: Daisy will always want him but she has no chance against Sandy(the girl that caused Mike to reject so many others including Lucy).
Is it me or does Daisy seem curlier? She seems to have curls near her shoulders. oh well she is still adorable no one can convince me otherwise. c:

I see nothing appealing about Mike, he’s just a bland as he his immature and frankly self centered. He wished death upon someone, told the he hated them in cold blood. Frankly I see NOTHING interesting about him.

I cannot possibly express the cuteness Daisy’s frustration over not being able to be with Mike projects. :3 Its so adorable! Taeshi, everything about this page is perfect! (even if I miss the color) And Daisy is the cutest in this page than Ive ever seen her!

@ Chazz
I can imagine that would make him very interesting. Not appealing, but interesting none the less. Also, I wouldn’t call him bland, more of bittersweet, per se.
@ Supertails
We all know who Sandy is, no reason to include it. Also, to my knowledge, Sandy has only caused Mike to reject Lucy and Daisy. All the other girls were rejected when he was still chasing after Lucy. Also, with the shoulder curls, just assume she’s growing wings, that should make everything more interesting.

Girl can’t give a guy up. I’d LOVE LOVE LOVE to play a video of Mike yelling at Lucy to Daisy and see her reaction. It’d be like releasing Death himself from the gates of hell while having a heavy period the morning his puppy died.

“Shoosh” Daisy has to be the best Daisy of all.
I didn’t participate in the Kickstarter (alas, no money to spare at the time) but will definitely be purchasing both books, along with any in the future.. c; Especially if there’s going to be cute little stories like this!

She obviously cares deeply for Abbey but feelings don’t have an off switch. Of course she’d still feel something for Mike.

Cyph September 24, 2012, 12:28 AM EST.

Making a mental note to request the word “Shoosh” into the dictionary, just because it’s funny and cute.

@Nikita: Yeah your right all the other girls were rejected back in Chapter 11: Puppy Love and Lucy didn’t know Mike kept in touch with Sandy until Chapter 15: Unfulfilled Fantasy. Sorry :(

Gotta say that I really love how expressive Daisy is here. You can tell exactly how she is feeling though all of this!

Kikimmicoa September 24, 2012, 12:38 AM EST.

Comment ID #229122

I don’t know if her reaction is due to her still having feelings for Mike, but more of a reaction to teasing.
Rather, she never had FEELINGS for him, but a little crush. She has real feelings for Abbey and takes her relationship with him seriously and to heart. ‘Sides, I think she knew by now that he was a bit of a dick.

Mike looks like he’d be taller than Daisy AND Rachel. Lil’ gray one.

I’m not saying Mike is tall, just that he’s taller than the two girls. I don’t have a measuring stick, so I could be wrong.

Daisy ever the little freshman, you can still see why she is the group’s little sister ;p she’ll mature enough soon as we know though XD
Can’t wait for what’s next!

I rate mike is such a bitch! Something must happen to him…. I know!:D sorry Sandy but please get into a car crash and come out with permanent amnesia as well as get your phone destroyed so mike won’t be able to contact you and he will think you dead:D

I’m sorry but mike… Go jump off a bridge and get raped by a shark and die then go to hell and be raped again!!

Daisy you are the cutest thing I’ve ever seen! :love: please find a way to get over mike… You too adorable to be trying to impress that **** head….. YOU SO CUTE!:D:D:D:D:D!!! 8-D

I love this comic!!:D

Oh goodie, mike isn’t even in the comic and half the comments boil down to mike hate -_-

I really don’t see why daisy and Abbey’s relationship is all that solid tbh. Sure daisy is very supportive of him, but honestly, all I’m seeing is a girl who has craved the attention of a nice guy for years and a guy willing to give it to her. They don’t seem to share the same kidna moments and bonds that Paulo and jazz do. While I’m sure Abbey very much likes daisy, I think the biggest reason daisy returns those feelings is because Abbey likes her rather than because of abbey himself. For that reason I can see the relationship potentialy struggling as it gets more serious. It’d be the kinda plot for those two characters I see at then end of the comic, with them breaking up and learning a lot about themselves, eachother and relationships in the process.

Poor Daisy, teasing her is as easy as shooting apples in a barrel! It is like Rachel to do that, but hopefully she’ll soon understand how sensitive Daisy is and refrain from it a bit in the future. Although it is just hilarious!

Comment ID #229139

no wonder she uses these teasing questions……. you get a lot more out of the embarrased reaction.
like how daisy thinks mike is obsessed about sandy.
or how she is so worried about cheating on her boyfriend.

Comment ID #229142

I kind of agree with Alpharius. O: I mean she didn’t show any interest in him that would involve a relationship until after it was pointed out. She even admitted she didn’t notice, was sorry for it and wasn’t sure she over all loved him, but was attached in some way. I think it’s slowly growing on her I guess.

Hey have you considered messing around with light sources? I mean if this comic is supposed to a drama then uses of light and shadow should really be emphasized at the points of tension. Like I mean look at those old black and white tv shows, they used to use lighting to create certain moods at times. Depending at which angles and how many lights there are it could very well change the moods by a lot. I think that this would be a cool problem for you to explore in your comic. It’s your comic ultimately though, you do what you think is best. c:

Man, I just really don’t like Daisy. I’m probably a soulless monster or something.

You ARE a soulless monster ^,..,^ but I’m just a monster. Daisy does get annoying with mike stuff. but hey! its how a lot of people actually are.

@That Guy
I’m sorry, I never really comment on these things, but your comment— I don’t know if it was serious or not, but still :c
I’m so fed up with all the homestuck stuff… And Shoosh is just… you know, shoosh. It doesn’t need to come from anywhere.
I don’t know, felt like pointing that out, since I would be rather offended if it was my comic— though I guess Taeshi is used to getting “Oh that looks like […]” comments and stuff
I guess it COULD be a homestuck reference anyway, but I’d rather not think about it that way

Lovely page btw, Daisy’s at her cutest in panel 2 <3

So, do i sense a bit of vindictiveness. If so please for the love of god, let’s see some proof. Till now she’s had a bug up her bum about the sandy issue without us seeing if it’s justified. All we’ve heard is her cry about it, we don’t know if it’s only in her head that sandy abandoned. I mean we don’t know how close they really were, we don’t know if daisy tried to contact sandy, etc. We don’t know if daisy has a justifiable reason for being vindictive or if she’s just being a spoiled princess.

Not a homestuck reference. Neither of us know anything about it.
