Author commentary

Veronica: I was sort of annoyed thinking that Paulo “knew too much”, and I fear I may have drawn/written him to be that way. He didn’t just become intelligent.

On the other hand, what idiot WOULDN’T think that Lucy’s angsting because of yet another fight with Mike? They always fight. They’re at each other’s throats.

Lucy, quit hiding it. Almost everyone knows. Give it up!

Paulo knows, Lucy. Stop trying to hide it from him. He might be able to help you. In fact, he definitely can.

OK, it’s official. He’s a genius.

Turns out, insensitive macho jerks can sometimes accomplish what us sensitive squishy types cannot.

Don’t tell them that, though. They are hard to hack already.

I always think they look like squids when they turn their ears way down like in the second to last panel.

looking back at this chapter, i realize why i am so much of a paulo/lucy shipper. lucy throws the same insults towards him that she does at mike but the difference is that paulo actually realizes she isnt completely serious, therefore, does not act like a ****, does not start arguments, actually acts like he cares and gets to see lucy’s dere dere side more.
