After the last two pages I totally saw this coming. Did I not earlier mention that this will not end well?

Aw what. Public restroom sex?

God Jess so unsanitary. For shame.
Paulo telling people it’s out of order is adorable.

Ah I know I should be scolding him right now. Be the moral high ground, and worrying about what Lucy or Tess will think……

but all I can think of is ‘Niceeeeeee~

I really doubt this was ‘planned’ on Jess’s part though, this is the booze talking, and she’s clearly having fun. Stop assuming she’s the devil so quickly, the girl has a nice side.

Should let her hair down more often me thinks.

Oh Paulo, what the ****? You just have the talent to get in weird situations, so what will you do now?
Don’t you think about Tess? You’re such a fool if you think this is what you want! I hope you realize it one day…
By the way, awesome comic!!! I read it since a week and i read it twice already. It’s really great, keep the good work!

Aaannndd that’s how Paulo will be the first one to score!

Or perhaps, will he refuse to do it a third time, which will make David once again mad at him?

We will see that soon enough ^^

Comment ID #17277

Hey, don’t know where else to put this.
I was just over checking the “Housepets!” update, and as the page was loading a picture of Lucy flashed quickly somewhere to the left side of the page before disappearing. I first figured I’d gone stern-over-bowsprit crazy and was seeing things as a side effect of all the crack cocaine I snort.
It did seem like a very realistic hallucination though, so I reloaded the page to check and got zip for my effort. Before signing myself into the local ward, I chased my mouse around the left side of the page and found a hyperlink appearing - it was invisible, but a right-click save revealed it to be an advert panel for BCB with Mike sitting at his computer or something.

…Is this supposed to be hidden? Or do I follow through with getting myself locked up in the sanitarium?

Hehe he seems so naively happy meanwhile informing random people about the “out of order” thing. He certainly goes for “ineeone”.

And wow… some people totally got what was going to happen here, you damn psyquics. Will he cut it out again? Seeing him so drunk, so happy and as he was… so ego-hurt… I suppose not.

If she ends pregnant we will have to rise a toast for you psyquics… or something.

I can’t help but laugh at thinking that Paulo’s reaction in the bottom-middle panel is due to Jessica having barf mouth after embracing the Porcelain Goddess. xDDDD The non-blushing face and the extra lines under his eyes give off a grim look.

who cares, every guy (or persaon) has a kind of goal in his heart at that stage, wether it be performing better at a particulat sport, socializing with a particular crowd or person or doing better in school; some kind of self-betterment exercise.
This is it for paulo.

Nothing too bad will happen, except that Jessica will go to Tess the next day and tell her about what she did with Paulo, thus:

a) Making her angry and promoting a fight of epic proportions.
b) Making her really sad and depressed, creating an emodrama of epic proportions

There will be lots of yelling, crying and heart shatering.

The final result is a happy Julian the Cruel *******

This is for everyone who has a problem with my earlier post.

I know it will break,I just happen to remember The song I Love College and he said “when it comesto condoms,put 2 on”.Thats why I posted.Not that he should, but hes to drunk to think why he shouldn’t.

I have to admit, I’m starting to lose faith in Paulo, but I haven’t quite given up hope yet. There is STILL a chance he could back out of this and save at least some face.

One thing’s for sure though. He’s gonna have one hell of a nasty hangover to remind him of his stupidity one way or another.

ok I read the whole comic so far today and Paulo is going to be the new emo along with lucy and probebly tess will join them aswell in emo club. This is obviusly a trap for him. and lucy will get even more depressed then she was before. I kind of saw it coming this direction when Paulo was first introduced as a “player”. I was thinking of drawing a simple “relationship map” but I realised with this comic its allmost impossible since it would be too messy. And we got tons of drama queens and I know this probebly work out somehow. I just havn’t figured it out yet. Im looking forward to my next comment on the next comic.

Comment ID #18590

Well, saw this coming from the onset of the club scene. Also what with jess’s dress and what can only be assumed to be ‘**** me’ pumps. And her whole “Oh i’d go for you if you were taken”

Been current since a few updates, when I first found Bittersweet, I must say my expectations were not met. If anything, they were exceeded. Cute teen furries for characters, highschool drama abounds, but overall a deliciously mature plot. If, at times, it can even be -called- a plot. I’m sure it all adds up in the end but there were moments when I was truly scratching my head as to wtff was going on.

All in all, from one writer to another - Brilliant work. Needs a little refinement here and there, maybe a few touches of explanation at parts, but there’s nothing saying those aren’t forthcoming so I wouldn’t advise changing a thing.

I love it. It’s one of the best webcomics I know out there, and one can really see, how it’s all evolved, both story and graphic wise. This comic is definitely a must read in my eyes, and I’ll be a constant follower from now on. Everything is well thought out, it has suspense, it has comedy, it has drama. Seriously, it has everything a comic should have in my eyes. Plus, the character design is really nice, and… Well, you see, I could go on like this for much longer, but let’s end it here. All I wanna say is, I really love your comic. So keep the good work up, Taeshi!^^

@Sarge, you do know “birth control” is harmful, the World health organization (can’t remember their name, it’s with the UN) classifies oral “birth control” as a level 1 carcinogen (that means it is as bad or worse than cigarettes in causing cancer) and all forms of artificial birth control are (permanently) harmful to a woman’s body.
