Veronica: The million dollar question.

Pretty sure we all know what Lucy’s going to say and that Paulo is too dense to figure out. Impatient little bugger.

Whew, just finished reading from the beginning and I gotta say, I thoroughly enjoyed it. Paulo is my favorite character, he gives off an Inuyasha character type, which gives him badass points. Now, I must wait until the next update, tis the fate of one who starts late, gets a ton of content and then catches up with the rest of the crowd.

I wanna go out on an anime quote, but I’m not sure if you’ll understand it, but here goes!

Oh Paulo you dense nut. With your obliviously blunt questions and your tacktless nature and your gooy nugart center…

Not much to say about this page. I like Lucy’s expression in the last panel though.

Also, I have to wonder whether Paulo’s dad was ignoring him behind that newspaper, and if that’s normal, or if he’s just being ****** at poor ol Paulo.

I feel kinda bad for the kid. But ah well. It’s all a learning experiance I guess.

Short, simple, and straight to the point. Lol, you’ve got to love Paulo at these moments. but ya theres been a lot of crap thats been happened since the last time I have been able to check this site. Nieghbors house burnt down. Family issues between my divored parents. lol but i’m begining to ramble on.

Anyway, It appears Paulo has once again used his “manly” charms on poor Lucy. can’t wait to hear what she has to tell him. Heres Jerry Springer to give us the answer.

Jerry: Paulo, you are the father.

Comment ID #87036

@Maverik: Paulo did always give me a sort of half-feral, at least partially self-raised vibe, so… I’m inclined to believe Paulo’s dad is usually fairly distant when he isn’t just absent due to his work.

Then again, it might just have been an awkward situation where a father and son don’t really know what to say to one another. Sorta depends on whether panel 4 is Paulo reacting to his dad not saying anything or just showing that he’s worried before he leaves the house…

She’s whistling, but either is being shy and awkward or being worried.

So, either she’s not pregnant but her dilemna with Paulo is still worrying her…

…. Or it’s too soon to determine whether she’s pregnant or not.

It’s so cute how he just ran to her like that, and even then he couldn’t help but to smile xD

Lucy’s eyes in the last panel crack me up for some reason. Don’t know why though.

Plus, if you merge the last two panels (Due to the lack of a line blocking them) then you get either Paulo and Lucy walking past clones discussing the same sorta dilemma they’re in.

One of two of these predictions will happen:
1: It’s still too early to tell so lucy will be all “idk, rawr you jerk.” and punch him in his entire body.


2: Mike’s ace hearing allowed him to overhear that bit as he was walking up behind Paulo and MAOR DRAMAH ensues! Then Lucy punches both of them in their entire bodies, respectively. Then Dave makes the face and makes a comment about ovaries.

I think it would be hilarious to have Taeshi not reveal if Lucy is pregnent until the last page of the chapter. In the last few panel’s Lucy will be about to tell Paulo if she is pregnent or not. Just as she is about to tell him, the real Lucy (not dream Lucy), wakes him up from his daydream and we never find out if dream Lucy was pregnent or not.

Then just sit back and watch as the forum and the internet explodes.

To me…Lucy seems like the kinda girl who would fake a pregnancy just to reel a guy into being with her. It wouldnt surprise me at all for her to lead Paulo around by a string this entire chapter. Shes a man trap! lol

My first post! I must say I read this entire comic in two days, so involved was I. A shame you don’t have an about the author or contact page, but hey, its the internet so I can understand. :P

Anyway I’m really enjoying this “what if” arc. Keep up the good writing and excellent work!

GSM! I feel like such a idiot for asking, and I should probably go back and read over this, but is this what really happened and everything else is a cover. or is this a “different path that the story could take but it didnt?

@Dee Its a daydream that Paulo is having.

StandardOperation September 7, 2010, 4:26 PM EST.

Comment ID #87647

Yep, this is a different path that the story could have taken but it didn’t.

(Technically, this chapter was an alternate reality plot, again nothing to do with the ‘real’ story, but just happening in some other dimension or something. It was going to just be used as a voting incentive, I gather.
Then for a mixture of reasons, not least that it’s damn interesting, Tae decided to use it in the main story. The events are still non-canon, but now encapsulated in the ‘real’ Paulo’s imagination. End of lecture.)

This is super funny, regardless if this is an alternate-reality or whatever. I wish, for thier sakes, that this turns out okay

@Silver I agree, a comic that just shows the daily life of one person (or cat-person) does give you a good idea of what they’re going through , but it needs more than just one familiar character in it. Ya know, to set up for a later event, so that nothing is unexplained, and the whole viewing world isn’t confused. Yes Sandy was talking to Mike, so i guess that covers it, but it could have at least introduced some new characters, just to set up some later interaction for the modern life portion of the comic. Lets face it, this comic needs more characters, so that more stories, pasts, and problems can be introduced, setting up for yet another plot twist.

@TGNK: NO! The last thing this comic needs is more angsty characters with angsty backtories that NEVER GET RESOLVED. WE HAVE ENOUGH OF THEM!!.

alright in all seriousness, this comic has a bunch of characters, each with a bunch of problems. This would be all fine and normal if it wasn’t for the fact that these problems take a very, very long time to sort themselves out. I read many comics with even less characters that are just fine.
