Ughh his head/face in the third to last panel really annoys me, it looks so wonky and like his jaw grew ten sizes that day compared to the others. OH WELL.

it’s an acquired taste, but I like it that way.

ALSO THE INCENTIVE PAGE FOUR IS UP, but the little banner is not updating and I don’t know how to fix it, so I guess I’ll wait until Souppy gets home, pyoooo! NONETHELESS IT IS UP AND YOU SHOULD TOTALLY VOTE TO SEE A BORING DIALOGUE WITH A WONKY-*** HEAD IN THE FINAL PANEL

If I could have my way this comic would at least be 4th and Evil Diva 3rd (I don’t like two kinds much which is weird considering the fact I’m such a fantasy nut but meh, haven’t read the other top two comics to gather an opinion yet on them to know whether this or evil diva should over take them. XD)

Paulos new lease on life shall be short lived whether by his own hand or not. Saying you don’t want drama is like saying at least things can’t get any worse. XD

Dammit, people are already talking about a broken Paulo neck. I guess I’m not the only one who thinks along those lines. Isn’t there an edit thread in the forum? So I’ve heard. I have an idea for them … MwahahahahaHAHAHA!!!

*Ahem* And this page contains some Lucy for those who were yearning to see her. Also, that book “Hooked on Learnin8-)” cracks me up. That’s … that’s probably some quality work right there. I also like scientist-Paulo. Man, he’s the last character who I would have thought looks good as a pseudo-intellectual. I applaud him for trying to get past the drama, but I don’t think that drama is done with him yet.

Also, another nice page that mostly tells the story without words. I’m also not sure if Abbey just doesn’t like Paulo in general, or just when Paulo is talking to Daisy. I recall that Abbey looked ****** when Daisy went to help Paulo up on the track, but I should probably reread the archives and pay closer attention to their relationship throughout. I seem to recall that Abbey thought Paulo was self-centered in general, but my memory is like a sieve.

Yipes. With Lucy’s GLARE OF DOOM in the first panel (that I’m sure Paulo knows is there, but is just ignorning it for his own health), I’m surprised she hasn’t beat up on him again. He got through the day with no pain this time!

The eighth panel is adorable. Daisy’s giving Paulo sooo much attention and adoration while Abbey steams over with jealousy. Paulo/Daisy cuteness, nya!

Hmm… Tess seems to have calmed down. She’s still glaring at Paulo, but it’s holding much less heat. More like an I-can’t-be-bothered-being-angry-anymore glare.

In panels four to seven, is he running round the track until a soccer ball comes out of nowhere and he lands it in the back of the net? I missed that the first time I read it. The first time, it just looked like he was playing soccer.

Aww! Just as Paulo was caring about school, David hit him with the irony stick. Lol. Curse that irony stick!

… And now I REALLY wanna know who the heck they’re looking at. Amaya? Flower Girl? A minor character that no one knows the name of? Another fan character? … Maybe Daisy?

It’s unlikely, but I picture Daisy upset after a fight with Abbey and David’s like “Now’s your chance! Get over there and grab her!”

Paulo’s doing what most young people do when they’ve had a lot of bad experiences: Ignoring everything. It’s one part tired and one part exasperated. This part of the comic seems very believable.

ya know… I somehow sense that if Paulo develops as a character, David will have to develop as well, or he will be left in little boy land, with his hero worship of a Paulo that doesn’t exist anymore.

rofl. I’m still amazed that Paulo is all for attention, then he’s for being respectable, then attention, then textbooks. It’s the sorta thing that gives you mental whiplash, the best kind :D

I think 33 pages were too many for this part of the arc, I miss Lucy’s pets. And Blur, I miss him too. Hope they’re in near future comics, the pets are the best ever IMO

So should she take his coat or slap him,Lucy style Lolz;D!, or ignore him and walk away to a icy lake that can break at anytime?

P.S. Can’t think of any personal comment Lolz;D!

@Dante: AYE Lolz;D!

um let’s me see…just here doing my everyday hobby reading webcomics, cleaning the house, programing games, still mad at my womanizing father, talking to people on the internet, and um drinking hot coffee on a hot summer day Lolz:D!

Cracks In The Ice
I disagree with you 8feet, I think that the “ice” is Lucy’s cold personality, and it’s cracking open because of Liam, revealing the nicer Lucy.

@Dante: Aye, unfortunately…

@Taeshi: I love your comic. Just wanted to say that. <3

Let me make a obvious observation (if I am the first)

A friend pointed out to me why this incentive is called “Back and Forth” a few days ago…

I am 99.99% sure it’s why the incentive is named Back and Forth.

And Mike has been pretty mean lately because of all the bull crap he has had to put up with *cough*lucy*cough* And I’m pretty sure it’s been made clear Paulo can’t stick to a single girl.

Stop hogging all the screen-time, Paulo! Mad Lucy

Ashkin May 30, 2010, 2:42 AM EST.

Comment ID #31477

Oh come on, Paulo hasn’t been that central for that long… it will center back on Mike and/or Lucy soon enough, I’m sure! Paulo has long suffered for this day in the sun…

Though really, he IS a main character.

And saying “Abbey x Daisy” was set up at the beginning is a stretch, given that Abbey didn’t show up until 20+ chapters in and really, I didn’t get the Abbey x Daisy vibe until the end of Daisy’s Awakening arc. Even still, their relationship feels a bit odd as I really don’t feel like I’ve seen much of Abbey.

New Site Policy:

Taeshi will post a page on demand if she recieves $100 in Paypal donations, roughly equivalent to a day’s work.

If you are unwilling to put up $100 you have to wait and recieve 3 pages a week (the schedule most comfortable for her lifestyle) at various times of the day (the times more comfortable for her lifestyle). You’re getting about 8 hours of work acros various mediums with every page update here, and none of you have put up any money to allow her to make time for anything more.

I can’t help but find Lucy annoying from “Another Shoulder” to the end of this chapter.

I mean she was only “falling” for Paulo to get over/replace Mike, and just cause she was able to convince Paulo to kiss her for a while she thinks that MEANS SOMETHING?!?

This is one of those instances where her bitchiness is actually just mean and irritating then trademark funny.

Personally, she had that second crushing rejection at the end of this chapter coming, and needed it.

Least Tess had a GOOD reason for being so upset about the whole thing Mad Lucy
