In the second to last row on the right, is Abbey supposed to be mad or confused?

Also, I’m guessing it was Lucy who told Tess, therefore neither Tess nor Lucy know about Jess yet.

It’s very interesting to see the Paulo character make the mistake of exchanging his personal relationships for physical ones, and how events lead him into it.

That being said, I didn’t like this one. It’s mostly transitional, without conveying any strong emotion or major plot points. Given other recent arcs though, I hope it takes a stronger meaning in context.

Tess told Paulo that they couldn’t be anything more than friends. Paulo hasn’t tried to be anything more than friends with Lucy. At this point, no, he did not have it coming. On the other hand, if he is stupid enough to act on his plans, he will.

I’ve always thought Paulo was an ***…. He changed back to the way he was before that guy “Taught” him…. I liked that Paulo… But he had to change back. And I miss Mike… I’m afraid of seeing Sandy live… what if she isn’t what she seems? Is it suspense that things never work out for them to meet, or is fate trying to punch Mike in the face and his naive mind is dodging the blows innocently?

Keirron May 17, 2010, 3:46 AM EST.

Comment ID #22828

Ok really why are people being so harsh on Paulo. I personally think he’s in the right. Tess for one kept talking about how its not the best idea for them to be in a relationship and basically Paulo is just now taking her advise. And with Lucy I have a feeling Paulo determined that Lucy is maybe a bit to crazy for him and he would rather just keep it as friends with her. Also wasn’t jerkface practically Lucys pet name for Mike? and now she’s calling Paulo that. I think Paulo might be the new Mike now. I want to bet that might be the piece of dialog that could of been more subtle.

SkylineFaux May 17, 2010, 4:01 AM EST.

Comment ID #22837

Well, yeah, it was obviously going to happen, and Lucy is pretty physically violent, so a beating was near certain (though of course, she can’t ACTUALLY beat him up without him letting her… but he won’t fight back).

Paulo doesn’t understand. He doesn’t DO awkward… but the problem is that awkward often comes from other people rather than yourself. He didn’t understand that he wasn’t in a relationship with them, but they saw themselves as having a relationship. Particularly Tess, whose relationship with Paulo is basically dating without dating - she sees herself as his partner, but feels wrong for having a relationship with someone so much younger than she is.

A lot of the blame for this lies on Tess, actually - from what we’ve seen of Paulo, it seems very likely he’d be faithful, as a lot of his “womanizer” aspect is similar to Lucy’s aggressiveness towards Mike - Paulo has trouble addressing his emotions as well, but acts out in a different way.

After bulk reading the comic for a leisurely week / half-week, I thought this comic was too good to be true. Now after a week of keeping up with updates, I’ve realized how slow it can seem, and it feels… Almost surreal. It’s weird, in both a cool and not-so-cool way. It’s an interesting feeling.

Sorry for going mojo on y’all right there, just wanted to get that out. ^_^

After reading some comments, yeah, he didn’t really deserve that from Tess either considering how she’s always been toying with his feelings xD.

So all in all, Go Paulo!
Still, might want to thread carefully around those two for a while, or better yet, call them out on their hypocrisy :D.

Swinter May 17, 2010, 4:29 AM EST.

Comment ID #22846

Aww… Now I feel sorry for him. I don’t think he deserves all that.

I mean, fair enough, he did have a close relationship with Tess, and he did act like he and Lucy could have a chance as a couple, and both of them probably feel cheated on and misleaded because he’s pursuing someone else, and he’s not really pursuing Rachel because he loves her, and he did do something incredibly stupid with Jess, and he is being a hypocrite right now. But still… Both Lucy and Tess have been pushing him away, and them glaring at him like that looks like it could break even the strongest. I know he’s been a douche, but I can’t help feeling sorry for him.

Ah, well. Perhaps I’m just in love with Paulo. ^_^

SkylineFaux May 17, 2010, 5:29 AM EST.

Comment ID #22870

I think it’s a bit more difficult that just if is one or another’s fault…

Paulo really hasn’t done anything too “wrong” (by hormonal tenageer standards at least): as has been said (a lot of times… I feel like echo) he isn’t in a formal relationship with neither, Tess continues to cut him, and the Lucy thing was a standalone situation in which I believe he thinks they ended as friends.

Lucy needs right now someone for support and she’s Lucy, so her reactions are more or less typical for her, maybe a bit over the limit, but well… she’s rather ****ed up at the moment. And Tess feels cheated, with quite a bit of reason (even though I agree with Skyen: she got into this herself)… or maybe is she being protective over Lucy? Wouldn’t be the first time…

But the really interesting point… is that they seem to know about Jessica. The theory about all being an evil scheme by Jessica and Rachel strengthens.

Yeah, I noticed that too. Looks like Mike was right after all when he said she was just looking for somebody to cling to. And, Jesus, poor Tess. The guy says he loves her and then starts dating someone else. He would’ve had her if he had stuck to his guns, but now it’s over.

So why do people say he deserves it?

Tess pushed him away, and he hasn’t made any kind of indication that he was wanting a relationship with Lucy

Lucy is (Once again) upset over a guy she’s finally confessed feelings for, and thinks that means that he’s not allowed to date

Ved of Flames May 17, 2010, 6:25 AM EST.

Comment ID #22886

@Shade, and anyone else who doesn’t understand what Paulo did wrong because you is not using ur brainz

He just went out with a girl who told him outright that the only reason she wanted him was to hurt his ex gf. He then went and slept with her in a public bathroom, and the chances are pretty good she bragged about it to said ex the next day.

And remember he never slept with Tess, he turned her down because he was worried about daisy. So he turned Tess down and then went and gave his virginity to a girl he hardly knew, even though she told him she only wanted him so she could hurt Tess’s feelings.

Concerning their relationship, he KNEW Tess still wanted him but was trying to work things out. And he knew Lucy wanted him too, he turned both of them down before he went to the skeezy out of order bathroom with a **** on the first date. Bit of a slap in the face to the two of them that he’d turn them down outright even though they were close, and then go and give himself up to literally the first person he sees. (which was exactly what he did)

Tess has a reason to be ****** at him. Lucy might not have as good a reason, but at this point he deserves ten times what he’s getting. Rather than owning up to it though, he’s run off to somebody else and it looks like he’s going to be making things worse.

Well, skither, he was pushed away by both those girls. Whether he should have realised that they still were extremely fond of him, is a different question entirely, but still they are partly at fault for his current predicament. By rejecting him, they made him both insecure and open. He can’t take all the blame for what has transpired, and I don’t feel he deserves being stomped and shot at by the very two girls that pushed him away. Abbey being mad at him, sure. Them giving him angry looks, yes. But now it seems everyone (except Daisy and David) are “disowning” him. I wouldn’t say he deserves all this. He did do wrong, and I won’t deny that. But he’s getting trampled worse than Michael ever was (psychically, at least).

Oh no. It’s true. ^_^

Comment ID #22914

@Steve-O: hehe… we should remember this whole ordeal started because of his wounded-ego…

Yep, he obviously has done things that will enrage both Tess and Lucy (righteously or unrighteously that’s another subject) bet he also was in need of something to demonstrate… besides as see in the last panels today, I think he also is in some need of approval…

And as Abbey has put sometimes (love his always hateful face when Paulo comes to his view by the way), Paulo can be “the most apathetic friend in the world”. He certainly seems to not see take too much into account other’s points of view or issues if he’s focused on something.

So in review: he may still not realize why they are so enraged, specially if he still needs um… “reassurance” himself. ^_^u

Alright, so for people wondering why Lucy and Tess are ******:
When you lead-on a girl and she confesses her feeling for you and then you immediately go behind her back, she is going to be beyond ****** and any “real” (genuine, whatever you want to call it) friends you have are going to hate you for it as well, especially if they are girls.

Yeesh, so many comments already. But, man, did I laugh at this. Especially at the expression of horror on Paulo’s face when he says “did she just call me a jerkface?” Oh, man. He knows. He *knows*. You are now Mike’s replacement for Lucy, and she is going to get all crazy up in and on your face.

On the other hand, if this is true, one might have thought that Lucy would have learned that physically and emotionally abusing the object of your affection isn’t exactly going to endear them towards you. And it appears that Paulo’s tolerance for pain is much lower than Mike’s.

Oh, Lucy. I love you because you aren’t real and can’t actually hurt me.

So, it begs the question, who else knows about this? Daisy and David seem to be oblivious about it. I think Abbey doesn’t know as well, he just generally dislikes Paulo which is why he’s scowling. Mike’s probably being an emo kid somewhere, oblivious as well.

Is Tess even mad at Paulo because she knows that he has been hitting on both Jess and Rach? Or is she just mad because Lucy seems to be a lot angrier towards Paulo? I mean, Lucy isn’t really the one to talk about these kinds of things with her friends. Or maybe Jess was spreading it all about the school? But I’d doubt Tess would fall for gossip that quickly though.

Question, questions :))

Lucy only said “jerk face” to mike because she thought he was her rival, but know she’s saying it to Paulo because she’s mad at him. *laughs* Just imagine what Tess and Lucy will do to him when they figure out about him and Jess. Still……….I can’t help but feel sorry for him. Ya know Lucy probably would have never had become a tough girl if Paulo didn’t run off when they first met…….. Oh how stories unravel. It brings the attention of so many.

lol, I see all these people reading between the lines and stuff, and it makes me wonder. What if there was a comic in the series where ABSOLUTELY everything was relevant to the story, but none of it was secrets to be revealed later, foreshadowing, or any of that? *time machine* *12 comments* the comic’s been up for 10 hours already, it should have 100!

seriously, too many people comment. They go in a circle of “this, no that, no actually THIS, no this lead to that, no that was cause of this, NO I HAVE THE RIGHT ANSWER” it gets ridiculous, and the highlight of my every other morning is looking at all the ridiculous comments people post.

In relation to the comic, I have to say. It looks to me that Paulo just has two ultrapissed girls in several classes, and no escape from them. Just my opinion, but I think if he doesn’t start playing hookey, he’ll be dead within the week.

I think Tess and Lucy are being a bit unfair. Basically they are saying that they dont want a relationship but they dont want him to have a relationship with annyone else either. Ok Paulo is hardly looking for a relationship but thats besides the point.

Such complicated relationships. You turned each other down, but they still like you… therefore, they get majorly jealous and possessive if you screw around with someone else… especially someone you barely know… Ah, the joys of tsunderes.

Also… hahaha… I see where this comic is going. Paulo is learning that, actually, it’s not so great to be Mike after all. He was jealous of him before. Now? Probably not so much.

Well, I have sympathy for Paulo. NONE of those girls started a relationship with him, or asked him out, and in the past, have TURNED HIM DOWN.

So they are beating him up for turning to having a relationship with someone they weren’t expecting? It’s his happiness he has to worry about, not anyone else’s.

He had one “one night stand”, one date.. and so far no one else but him know what happened on that date. In the past he’s acted as a womanizer, but he’s never actually cheated or gone steady, so no marks against him.

They need to give him a break (not the physical ones, they’ve done enough of that), and let him try to get some happiness.

he turned Lucy down because he decided she wasn’t mentally fit to sleep with him.

And Paulo turned tess down too. When they were on vacation, she wanted to sleep with him and he turned her down (he was worried about daisy’s feelings)

And then he went and slept with jessica, who he hardly knew. He did this despite the fact that she told him she only wanted to go out with him to hurt Tess. And he didn’t care about lucy’s feelings this time, despite staying abstinent for daisy’s sake earlier.

And I imagine by the look on Tess’s face, and the fact that Jessica was doing it to bug her in the first place, that Jessica told her all about it.

Turning down Tess because he didn’t think it was fair to be with her after turning down Daisy was thoughtful. From Lucy’s perspective, he’s clearly indicated he cares less about Daisy than he does about her (which is going to be a shock to her because he had hit on her constantly the last three years.) And to Tess, he had turned her down to sleep with a bitter enemy, so she probably feels pretty betrayed as well.

Also, Paulo’s used to the hitting by now from his failed attempts to hit on Lucy, it’s “jerkface” that’s confusing him. ^_^

I’m not a tsundere, mind… but we do share a lot of traits. No wonder she’s my favourite character.

… Before anyone says anything, yes, I have a soft spot for tsunderes. XD They’re screwed up in the head with their mass of emotions and just need some love to stablise them. The same goes for Akane Tendo of Ranma 1/2.

Judging by just how upset Tess looked at Paulo, I would guess Jess decided to tell Tess all about her evening with him (of course making things sound even worse) after all you have to take into account that Jess did blatantly say to Paulo that she would only go out with him if it would get to Tess. I feel sorry for Paulo at this point, but if he didnt see this coming from the moment he decided to try bagging as many girls as possible, he totally deserves it. :3

Edit:@joefox: im probably just giving Lucy way to much credit, but it seems like shes angry more for Tess sake since with him acting like his old self it would also ruin any new found respect Lucy had gained for Paulo.

I don’t know who i feel worse for, Lucy or Paulo. With Lucy, for the second time she’s tried to trust someone, he went off for some other girl(s). You really have to feel bad for her. And with Paulo, sure he’s being a bit whorish, but he’s also being treated like crap by Lucy and Tess. I don’t feel all that bad for Tess, if she’s not going to try and go for Paulo, she should do anything when he goes after others.

WHY are people calling Paulo a cheater? He isn’t in a relationship with Lucy or Tess. He is a free man and should do what he pleases, he isn’t tied to anyone. Tess rejected him, said they couldn’t be together. Lucy and Paulo had a connection but she should have known it probably wouldn’t lead anywhere while Paulo knew the situation/mindset she’s currently in.
I feel bad for the guy, really. One night stands happen all the time, I’m not saying they’re right, but jeeze it’s not like he’s really different from most guys his age. Them ragin’ hormones and all.

I was, though, so happy to see Daisy give Paulo some caring attention. HHNNGG cute. And Abbey getting jealous. Break up already so Daisy and Paulo can be happy together!

Well what Paulo’s doing isn’t technically wrong, as stated Paulo isnt in an official relationship with Tess though it is quite obvious that they might as well have been. As far as Lucy goes, she really doesent have any right to be upset with him unless its for Tess sake, she originally told Paulo she didnt want things to be awkward between them and Paulo didnt really give any hint that they were anymore then friends. None of this means im defending the way Paulo is acting, but he is just another hormonal teen who had his sexuality questioned by his best friend so his actions are realistic.

@ Yappy, you have to admit, it seems that Mike is seeming to be the only one who is not caught up in this madness. Lucky *******

Lucy, I’m guessing is ****** cause she saw him talking to another girl. Maybe she even overheard “date.” That’s about all I can say for her. She got ****** at Mike when he talked with other girls too, right?
Tess, yeah my guess is Jess bragged to her.
Paulo, he deserves it if he didn’t see it coming. Oh wait, he didn’t. that’s why he went through with it. Once again, hookey appears to be the only way out.

I don’t know about what colour the sky is during tornados, but it cartainly can turn green whith Aurora Borealis, and I think David is smarter than we give him credit, he just has like ADHD or something and can’t concentrate on one thing for too long.

Lovely. Always nice to see some sexism alive and well.

Also, is everyone in this school a sociopath? These people are all going to be murderers when they grow up- maybe sooner. I don’t get it … I don’t think violence is funny.

Lucy is probably feeling like there’s something more and he’s not helping much with her abandonment issues. Who knows. We’ll see in a bit.

Whether or not Lucy is justified in what she did depends on the reason for it. If she’s attacking him out of jealousy, Lucy has NO right to do what she did. While Paulo DID make the mistake of kissing Lucy and ALMOST sleeping with her, I’m pretty sure both Lucy and Paulo were under the impression that Paulo was just doing the good friend thing and trying to take Lucy’s mind off of Mike. Maybe Lucy saw that outing as a “date” and Paulo didn’t. I dunno. Only Taeshi knows the truth.
Tess I’m kind of torn on. While both of them know they like each other, Tess made the comment that she can’t be with Paulo because she’ll be graduating in a year and won’t see him much anymore. I can understand where Paulo might interpret that as freeing him up to date other girls in the meantime. If the truth is that she wants him to wait for her, she should SAY so. People can’t read minds.
If they’re mad at him for sleeping around, that’s justifiable; one-night stands are shallow and only result in hurt feelings. I also think that Paulo’s kind of dense for not picking up on the fact that Jess would only go out with him if Tess still wanted him, which would raise a red flag in my mind that I’m being manipulated.
In any case, they need to TALK about their issues, and Paulo needs to find a better role model for “honor” that that dumb dog David.

okay what up. i can guess quite accurately I’d say about why Tess and Lucy and ganging up on him but why did she call him jerk face? that’s her name for mike

and does Paulo have a tear under his eye or something?

Pain Circus USA, Population: PAULO XD First time he’s actually taking advantage of his playa persona and BOTH potential love interests aren’t happy with it. Poetic in a sense, but the physical beatings are a bit overkill.

You know, I never did figure out what Taeshi meant with the page comment. The only girl I can think of to be meant is Daisy, but she cares about everybody so it’s nothing special. Unless of course Taeshi is pretending to not know things she has not yet revealed.
