Oh Paulo… You know just what to say… Not to mention that you can take one hell of a beating if you’ve managed to withstand Lucy’s fists of fury the WHOLE way home.

Still. It’s not really surprising that she’d freak out. I’m looking forward to seeing more of Mr. Paulo’s Dad. I like to think he’ll be like one of the 7 dwarfs and be singing ‘Hi Ho!’ with a pick axe :P

Paulo might be 15 years old but he’s smart as hell!

I like the fact that he brought up that they could talk to Lucy’s Mom instead. But he’s able to get her to settle down. I love panel 10 and 11 the most on this page. It shows great charter development; even if they don’t together they’ll be better friends in the long run!

I can’t wait for the weekend to be done so I can see the next page!

It’s a shame the series won’t end with PauloxLucy. I honestly do not see the chemistry between Mike and Lucy.
I know you won’t be changing the ending because MikexLucy makes much more sense in the context of a coming of age story, but… But it makes much less sense in the context of the characters.

I know that there has been no official confirmation that it will end with MikexLucy, but it’s been seriously implied through the comics and commentary.

Comment ID #82561

This would be better as the actual story. It’s better than the way Paulo stuffed up in the real, with the sex, and the drugs, and the complications (meds by placebo reference). But, still, if this is just a daydream, why’s it still going and so dramatic and better? It’s just gonna be a pointless section of what if. But still, Paulo is a better match than mike. It’s a shame he did that in the other chapter..

Why is it i feel like deja vu when i’m reading this? i know i haven’t read it before and its not in another comic…


Never mind. Nice one Taeshi, no one said it was easy to convey such emotion in cartoons without scribbling all over the page. ^_^

Lucy’s in safe hands with Paulo, as i gather he is more determined to help Lucy, than Lucy is to stop Paulo: so Lucy’s “fists o fury” will have little effect here.

I gotta give Paulo props here.

How is it shipping to pair Mike and Lucy together when that was basically canon before the introduction of what’s-her-face-the-offscreen-teenage-model? Ugh.

Okay… uhh… What is that in the first panel…? It looks like it should be part of Paulo’s anatomy… I can’t tell what it is… *scratches head* …It’s not his arm/torso, because then his elbow would be bent funny… *snaps fingers* It’s his… crotch? And legs? >_> Not quite the best angle to depict them, maybe?

“Your dad doesn’t know me!!”
“But I know him.”
Paulo needs to work on his lines. -_- Of course he would know his dad? And that doesn’t really calm Lucy down in the slightest - she only really ceases hyperventilation when she hugs/latches onto him.

This is becoming intriguing because I remember at the beginning, when Paulo went into the daydream, that he stated how bad it all would have all turned out if he did the midnight tango with Lucy. So far, despite some awkwardness and an emotionally unstable Lucy, things aren’t that bad. Paulo has even managed to get her to trust/rely on him instead of Micheal , which could mean she is opening up? (Though that could just be because he is the only one who understands the situation she is in, seeing as he caused it) So the question is: What happens in the next… 13 pages that is so terrible, Paulo is unwaveringly glad he didn’t give in to urge and follow through with Lucy’s request?

I am really hoping that the next page goes something like this:

*Paulo and Lucy face Paulos father
Paulo: “Em dad, Lucy might be pregnent, and the child is mine.”
*Paulo’s father puts down his paper, walks over to the two, looks at Paulo and then Lucy
Paulo’s father: “FALCON PUNCH!!!”
*Paulo’s father punches Lucy right in the stomach. With Lucy out cold, Paulo looks stunned as his father walks back to the table, picks up his paper and says
Paulo’s father: “Problem solved.”

Even if he did get her pregnant, then he will just have to accept the responsibilities, will he not? And think about it, even if most would freak out at first, one of the best things that can happen to someone is having a child, even if it is simply an adoption. If I got a girl pregnant, I’d freak out at first, but then after I thought about it for a while, I’d just have to accept the fact. Besides, It’d mean that I actually did have sex at least once in my life, so chances are it’ll end up being the first girl I marry :’l

I’m afraid I must agree with Vincent, however I do not agree with the way he stated it. Also, a woman should never be attacked, even in self defense unless you are in very serious danger. I find it much better to simply restrain them until they calm down. :)
Great stuff, Taeshi! Keep it up!

To be fair, had Lucy softened up a bit, she’d likely had been dating Mike ~middle school. Though that is my favorite Lucy coupling. Hoheh…

Hi. I’m new here, but I’ve got to say. I’ve fallen in love with your comic. I’ve been reading it for the past week everyday. I’ve cried so many times I lost count.

The characters, the story, everything clicks together like a real life story. And this, dear ms. Veronica, has the potential for even more. I love your comic so much!! I certainly say I’d be willing to pay anything for your upcoming book!! ANYTHING!!

Only two comics have ever made me feel so many emotions and conflicts. And one is yours.

Just saying, as this is my first time here, that this is the first page I finally caught up with. I LOVE THIS COMIC!!! Seriously, it’s got some awesome thimgs that I really like; Love, awkwardness, cats, drama and it’s really good :3. And I’ve gotta say Paulo I feel for you. I walked for 4 hours dragging a heavy suitcase without wheels, for what could’ve been about 1.5 hours jogging.

And WOAH, does she think she’s pregnant??? I mean I know this is an alternate reality/daydream, but that would still be a shocker.

For a long time i’ve been a Lucy+Mike fan, but this is quickly changing my mind. Never thought i’d say it, but this might just make me a Lucy+Paulo person. Never would have thought Paulo to be such a nice and considerate guy.

Wow, this is getting pretty surreal. Almost makes me wish Paulo would get together with Lucy. But alas, that ship has sailed. But the one thing I’m asking is that you slap some sense into the people bullying Tess. They need to see that they have become no better than Tess was in Freshman year. Hell, in a sense, they’re even worse.

I have a felling that his dad is gonna flip out, and that is where the “It’s a terrible mistake” part is gonna happen. Or He’s gonna relay the message to Lucy’s mom, and then all hell will break loose- and there will be many demon hipster chicks in the world of BCB- courtesy of Carlton. I do think, however, that Mike would get his **** together and help the pair out if that were the case. It might take some time, but I think that Mike really does care for Lucy, it is just hard to say why he’s being such a dick at the moment. I think, also, that Sandy is just gonna finally end the relationship. They never see each other, she’s way too busy with her life, and I think Sandy will have to give something up. And that would more than likely be Mike.

@Le Biologist

What you say is sort of true…. however…. there is no possibility of pregnancy before the start of puberty… meaning the earliest a girl could get pregnant (and this is EXTREMELY unlikely…and… disgusting to think about) would be 9 years old… There is one documented case. More common are 12 and up pregnancies, exponentially climbing with each year up to 18, at which point it suddenly starts to drop off…
All of this leads me to believe that most pregnancies probably happen between classmates in highschool, at least in the countries with age of consent laws.
While I didn’t know anyone that became pregnant in middle school, I DO know there was at least 1 person out of each of my classes starting at 6th grade, that were having sex.

So while it can’t happen at ANY age… it CAN happen REALLY EARLY, and at the earliest, if kept to term, it IS fatal. 9-11 year olds simply weren’t meant to start having children… despite it being possible. Not all of human biology develops at the same rate after all…

Also, I’d like to point out, that Lucy (for those of you wondering EXACTLY what she said to Paulo) probably missed her monthly date… That’s not a sure fire way to tell however, as the scheduling can fluctuate, or in some people, change completely… It is also not strictly a monthly calendar either… it can range anywhere in between 2.5 weeks to 2.5 months in all actuality… though it is usually between 3 and 5 weeks for anyone not on certain medications or hormonal therapies…

On a completely different note… Lucy looks absolutely adorable in this page…it’s sad that she has to be pushed to such limits to be cute…

Its the *next day* people. She hasn’t missed her ‘time of the month’ as she hasn’t had enough time to miss it! If we are using real medical knowledge to work through this then….If she is due then she has even less cause to worry. She doesn’t know if she is pregnant or not. It takes around 7-10 days for the egg to travel and implant (which is how the morning-after pill is able to be effective- it tries to prevent these steps starting at conception.) At about 12 days it produces hormones which can be picked up by home pregnancy tests which is when you are medically considered pregnant.
—— This is a comic though and the characters aren’t exactly human ;)

She is just worried she *could* turn out to be pregnant. I would be too! Though for the sake of PauloxLucy I want to see kittens darnit.

If I don’t point things out, other people do, which causes me angst and self confidence issues, which are only accelerated by the fact I have tons of commenters who never read anything above their own post. So if I point out what I know, people can point out flaws i overlooked, which is beneficial for me in the end in the world of improvement.

So it’s really not that simple! Obviously I have some faults and don’t always maintain the right attitude about my work - you only have to read some of the stuff in my hourlies from last year to figure that out. I don’t know how to properly respond to your criticism, though, as I don’t see a clear solution and you didn’t really offer one.

tl;dr: suck a dick *******

You should learn to skim comments and only think about the good ones like those that give good praise and constructive criticism instead of just bashing you. If they don’t like how you do things they can shut up or leave is how I see it but that”s just me. Also you shouldn’t get angst because someone points out a mistake just smile say thanks and learn from it. You are a great artist and do a great job and if someone don’t think so just screw them and move on :)

Neverendingpizza: I do participate in positive discussion though! I am pretty active in the forums.

And yeah I agree, I do wanna improve! I didn’t wanna imply that I don’t like critique, far from that!

I agree with Neverendingpizza. It’s not like you owe us anything, much less a response to an obviously disgruntled reader. Most of us, if not all of us, are here for the story and artwork, not to form some hypothesis about your attitude towards mistakes or whatnot. Besides, I’m sure it’s far better than anything a lot of us could produce!

Keep up the great work!

Oh yeah, that’s brilliant.

Day late… but even still… I was not aware of the 5 year old story…

In any case the last two pages had me a little confused as to how much time had passed… I was imagining more like a few days rather than the same day…

The passage of time is not always easy to decipher for me in comics…

And I guess that’s my dollar short.

Cadlington: I like how you hone in on the potential negative that I said and completely and utterly missed the point. You sound familiar.

” So if I point out what I know, people can point out flaws i overlooked, which is beneficial for me in the end in the world of improvement.”

Don’t see how that equals “I only want compliments lol hugbox”

How come lucy is crying in almost all of this chapter?

Well, this is the first chapter of this particular comic I have read. Now, I have been in Lucy’s position at the same age, with the exception that we did not tell anyone until we were certain what the results were on the test (which, thank goodness, was a negative).

A person can come to a sudden realisation on a mistake by not thinking about it before. It is possible they were taken up by the drama already going on before thinking about the real problem. Just the possibility of something can really screw up a young girl’s mind, and overreactions are not uncommon.

But in the sense of the comic, it would have helped if a few more thought bubbles were going through the character’s minds, just to help get the message across. :)
