I… Yup, that’s pretty much what I expected from Lucy. Actually I’m more interested to see how she’s going to be after this, as Paulo was her cling-on up til now. Hmmmm…

It’s really weird to see both Lucy and Paulo going about without any of the other regulars nearby. I wonder what Mike, Daisy et al are up to?

Paulo seems to have either finished a strenuous jogging routine, or has found himself in a situation not easily remedied by simply walking away.

Wait. Does this page mean… LucyxPaulo is real?

But yes, if they simply had been friends, Lucy would have had no reason to slap him. Really, she’s most likely mad because she has feelings for him. Whether she’s gonna be able to act out on them is another thing.

Well, he’s a good guy, but I think they’re a bad pairing. Mostly because she comes across as the sort of person who has standards, and he’s the sort of person who loses his virginity in a public bathroom (fun fact, just under 20% of people in north america have chronic genital herpes. I wonder how much that goes up for people who have sex with acquaintances in public places)

Good way to break them up though, story wise. I was under the impression (from the earlier commentary) that they’d never end up together anyway, and I’m glad to see it done without him ruining her. Looking forward to seeing her ruined when the alley cat from chapter 12 gets his nonspecific revenge. (I’m guessing it’s going to be relevant sometime this or next year, considering that whole arc was redone in febuary)

Comment ID #21574

@Skither: He’s the sort to lose his virginity in a public bathroom when drunk. Not to mention the fact it was outta order, so he most likely felt safer like that. And the fact that Jess most likely aroused him before he could react, and you know how animals get when they’re the least bit aroused.

Poor Lucy.

The funniest thing here, though, is that Paulo is actually doing Rachel a favor in a way, though we’ll see how well it works out for her.

I wonder if this means we’ll revert to Lucy’s point of view, or if we’re going to stick with Paulo?

And of course, Lucy solves her problems with violence. And by “solve”, I mean “doesn’t solve at all and leaves lingering issues without resolution.” Good job Lucy!

Titanium Dragon May 14, 2010, 3:20 AM EST.

Comment ID #21582

@Megaron yeah, he’s the sort of person to get drunk while underage, and lose his virginity in an out of order public bathroom, has no drivers license or money, and is generally does not meet any sort of standard that a person might have. And as far as aroused quickly goes, he’s already (heroically) demonstrated his ability to keep control of himself when it wasn’t a favourable situation (which means that he considered a club bathroom to be favourable)

I do enjoy the dichotomy though, that despite his thoughtless behavior, he deep down really is a good guy. Just a skeezy good guy. Some people might consider that to be inconsistent, but people in real life are complicated and contradictory, and so are well written fictional characters (in my opinion.)

Comment ID #21583

@Skither: …damn, you wiped the floor with me. XD
But let’s be honest: Who wouldn’t get it on with a good-looking (simply good-looking, not saying she’s particularly hot or anything) girl when you’re drunk and you are a perverted, hormonal teenager who still makes constant jokes about sex?

Megaron May 14, 2010, 3:23 AM EST.

Comment ID #21593

I’m just happy that this comic actually updates on time. Its really as much as you can expect. More than I expect of many webcomics, sadly - she actually has a buffer! A buffer! How awesome is that?

Titanium Dragon May 14, 2010, 3:30 AM EST.

Comment ID #21594

@Megaron and yet somehow I fear my great philosophical literary revelations shall go unnoticed by history.

Being honest, I confess that if I were drunk, and male, and hormonal, and perverted, and a cat, and if my partner were a cat cheerleader who was attractive (I think she’s supposed to be outright hot as far as the story is concerned) then I would probably succumb to the same temptations paulo did. (unless I had major hangups about dalliances in public washrooms, which is totally plausible as well)

skither May 14, 2010, 3:31 AM EST.

I’m not very tech savy, so I’m gonna assume that a buffer is extremely badass for posting things. Ha ha.

Dante May 14, 2010, 3:32 AM EST.

Comment ID #21597

Nah, I’m not complaining. I’m just saying this from experience because I read a bunch of webcomics :P I actually think it’s a good thing because it keeps you on the edge of your seat, just thinking of what’ll happen next and stuff like that. It doesn’t hurt that she updates 3 times a week either as most of the webcomics I read update bi-weekly.

And I agree that the story is THAT good, enough to say this is one of the best I’ve ever read storywise :)

Scary though, it was nearly 5 when I’m clicking next throughout this chapter after I reach to the page where its before this one, I decided to refresh and I saw this page. I live in Melbourne..

Comic comment:

Lucy is jealous, just look at her. Staring at Paulo like thinking ‘You can’t date her!’. I hope Paulo doesn’t asks Lucy outs for a date. It could be difficult treating her to something nice, thats why I love her.

Comment ID #21652

You know I’m not entirely sure we’re supposed to be all shame at Paulo. I mean you have to remember that Lucy is kind of crazy at the moment and loves latching onto people. And Paulo being a playa maybe knows that you don’t stick your dick in crazy. And seeing how Lucy is with latching onto people and past chapters we can kind of tell Lucy is crazy and finding someone new to latch onto. Maybe Paulo realized this and figured he doesn’t want to be that person. He also probably realized that would also hurt his chances of get in bed with as many girls as possible and after missing out on Daisy and Tess doesn’t want to let anymore chances slip through his fingers.

Chronos May 14, 2010, 5:00 AM EST.

Comment ID #21660

@ Chronos
We are not (At least not meh) tottaly ashamed of him, we just know teh outcome of things, Ah agree that it’s his call to get as much tail as he can have. But he’ll find out tha sex is just not teh only thing in teh world, and tha it’ll never satisfy him completely. Cause he only want’s more and more after each one-nighter.

And that Lucy’s a bit crazy; Ah agree, but Ah think it’s more like “Borderline Syndrome” rather then a neurotic or a psychotic disorder, nya! “^-^

Drama alarms must be functioning properly now, and pretty sharply at that.
paulo also clearly handles this through male protocol:”In case of excessive drama or a psycho chick (double check), bail out as soon as possible to prevent phisycal or mental injury.”

extraction coulds use some work, but i say it was a succes overall.

That’s all I have to say. I’ve been picky with what webcomics I read, but this so far, story-line wise, is one of the best.
Normally, I hate this drama crap that exists in high school (which I’m glad I never got involved in), but when presented as fiction, it’s irresistible. I’ve only read the whole archive from 2 days ago, but I feel like as if I’ve known these characters for years; they’re that well written.
And I don’t even comment on anything! Keep up the awesome work. I only wish I had a time machine to find out what the ending is to this epic saga.

His reaction to the slap is great by the way. Aaand come to think of it… has always Paulo looked that tall compared with Lucy or Rachel? Gosh… David must be close to two heads taller than them.

@ MiwAuturu, it’s her RIGHT ear that’s deaf though. I’m guessing she heard.

Comment ID #21812

All the people saying Lucy is at fault, you have to remember he likes her as well and heck he even admitted it to her, so really it’s not her fault to assume. Sure, she was wrong in assuming instead of just talking to him about it, but the girl’s 15, can you really blame her? Also, if this was Tess doing this, I bet half of you would be cheering for her.

I think Lucy needs to stop latching unto guys the way she does, before she gets hurt again. As to her still having a chance with Mike; I think she does. Earlier one of their friends said something about having seen Sandy before (when she saw a picture), which I think was foreshadowing some upcomming revelation about Sandy, so I think there’s definitely a chance things are going to go bad for her and Mike.

I don’t think Lucy has any right to be mad at Paulo. She kissed him just because she was devastated because of Mike, it’s actually pretty unfair to Paulo.

Then again, it’s Lucy we’re talking about.

Not to mention I don’t really know how Lucy can just forget everything Paulo did just because he helped her out. It seems more like she’s using him as a replacement for Mike as a punching-bag/friend instead of…falling for him- aaah. I don’t like it. I don’t like it at all.

Woah, for once she actually didn’t hit/kick him, it was an honest to goodness bitch slap. So it probably means at least a LITTLE more to her (the whole Paulo being a ***** thing). Though, i don’t think that she actually ‘loves’ him, just needs someone to go to since Mike is being all ‘SANDEEEEEEE’.

so to see him trying to bag a girl makes her *gasp* mad!! OH WOW I WONDER WHAT HAPPENS WHEN LUCY IS MAD

When in doubt use your fists?

I’m afraid that when i’m in doubt its usually because i brought fists to a knife fight.

Although Paulo running away is probably more like to bite him in the ***. Know when to stand you ground!

(Hint: Its when a potentially dangerous person comes looking for answers, as running usually ends in broken kneecaps, just a warning.)

Lucy’s a completely unreasonable psychopath. She’s the kind of girl PSA’s should be made about, warning teenage boys to avoid them.

Well, as suggested by that one chapter’s title, Paulo is Lucy’s “other shoulder”. She’s losing her closeness to Mike, so she’s seeking refuge in Paulo. Needless to say, this is entirely the wrong time for him to be a horn-dog. :(

@ Taeshi & Sean: I’m 23…I’m ….so old. I should have a life by now….


Also, I love Paulo! ….even if he is kind of….ummm….”immature.” Seems like the most appropriate word at this point. Maybe Tess is right…le sigh.

That just might be the coolest thing you’ve done since this comic!
But a funnier way would be to move all comments with the word “first” done one.
But still, you deserve a cake.

It seems she has the same reason for hitting Paulo as Tess did. THIS is why I don’t like David. He putting Paulo down the wrong path. Too bad he’s the comic relief too :/

Comment ID #151842

You know I’m usually ****** when Lucy gets abusive. But this time I think she was just trying to prevent him from making a big mistake. Albeit it probably would have worked better to explain to him why going out with all these girls is such a bad idea, but I suppose Lucy still needs work in the communication department.

Hell if she should be slapping anyone she should be slapping David for making poor Paulo feel like he’s less of a man for not taking advantage of Lucy and Tess.
