I think pannel 13 is the best one from this page. I think it’s the best thing a farther could say to there son about any girl he’s with.

If Lucy comes out of the bathroom and say that she’s not pregnant, I can see Paulo scree “YES” or something close too it. Lucy will be happy aswell… But part of her will be saden.

The only thing that can warm my heart even more is if I ate chocolates around the heater, and sitting in my fuzzy chair with someone I love right now.

Or if the BCB book is ready for pre-ordering. (Oh snap!)

I seem to waver more toward PauloxLucy now. HOLY ****. Will I change my OTP as well? Only time will find out.

Somehow Taeshi will find a way to draw this out to the last page. And then, right before we find out for sure, something snaps Paulo outta the daydream and we are all left guessing. I’m callin it now!

@ Tukari: When the dad grabbed Paulo’s cheek in one of the previous pages, saying “Don’t even think about it” I think that’s when he was given a very, very bad talk xD

I have a feeling that we’re not even going to get the big question answered for Wednesday’s page. ‘Cause Taeshi’s just mean like that D=

*Script for Wednesday
- 4 to 5 panels of paulo looking increasingly anxious as he waits.
- Lucky finally comes out and looks at Paulo with a nutral face
- Paulo finally blurts out “Well?”
- Last panel, Lucy says “It will take a few minutes for the resualts to show.”

Just to keep the suspense going just a little longer. :P

Do you guys think we will find out in the next page or not?

I really hope that this is NOT real… if it is i’ll hate you forever.. I mean, why does Paulo get to be with the sweet sensitive lucy, when Mike’s had to put up with the bitch for so long? In either reality, Paulo is a jerk. Either (A) he doesn’t take advantage of lucy, and he becomes a man *****, or (B) he DOES take advantage of lucy’s sadness, and then to make it worse, he takes it as far as to get her into a relationship with him just because he took advantage of her!!!!

Tho’ it wouldn’t surprise me if this daydream wraps up and Paulo’s alone in the school at night cause he just spaced out for so long.

This is such contrast to the paulo that existed in the non imaginary chapter. You know, the one who banged two girls and didn’t think anything of the two who he both likes and actually DOES want to have sex with? Not only that but he’s also on to girl number 5 and hasn’t even stopped to think about how 1 and 2 felt? I don’t see how this is a realistic daydream of him when he’s being a player full bore in reality… you’d think he’d feel just a LITTLE guilty, no?

oh Paulo…does anybody else think this LucyxPaulo thing is moving super fast? Like, he’s making a promise to be with her always, and they’re what, 15? To be honest I’m still kinda LucyxMike at the moment. I dunno, maybe she should just give up on boys…one exploded on her in a fit of rage, one loves Lucy like no other in a creepy stalker way, and one potentially got her pregnant. No wonder she’s so messed up in the head.

Man… all this cute and heartwarming stuff is just going to make it even harder when Lucy manages to screw everything up some how by being herself.

1: She’s pregnant. Decides she doesn’t want Paulo involved for some arbitrary reason. Heartbreak ensues.

2: She’s not pregnant. She doesn’t want to be all nice and cuddly with Paulo anymore. Heartbreak ensues.

Regardless, this is going to be tough once we get back to reality…

The test shows pregnant, and 8.5 months later she gives birth to a half dog half cat.

As in, Paulo is not the father.

Comment ID #90844

Taeshi has made a ship tease she knows we know isn’t real, but made us want it. I’d think that was a bad thing, but it’s so much fun to see. The character of Paulo and of his dad got deeper. Guess he is alright when he isn’t harassing Mike. Usually. Is this the Paulo arc?
Also, the Lucy being less whiney is likely a combination of fear decay over time and her warming up to Paulo similarly to how she was with Mike. Only less violent.

The face Paulo’s dad makes is just priceless. It make’s me wonder how I’ll handle things if my son ever knocks up her girlfriend at a young age, or if my daughter gets pregnant at a young age. To a certain point, as children we tend to make stupid decisions, and we take those bad decisions, embrace them and learn from them. Paulo feelings towards Lucy really have changed (in this dream anyway), but I wonder how he will cope with his ex-lover/almost girlfriend? It’s hard being a Stud :)

IHATEPAULO, blame David for that. And blame the two cheerleaders for being so vengeful to Tess that they would disrespect their own bodies to get back at her. Lucy and Paulo were not truly a couple. And as for Tess, she repeatedly pushed him away. At least with this arc it shows a side of Paulo we have only seen tidbits of. End of explanation.

Remember, everyone, that troublemakers provoking you is usually the point. If you’re going to argue, make it YOUR argument. Failing that, arguments suck and this comic doesn’t. Join the ride with us, friends. We aren’t all mean ^_^
Paulo is kinder when Daisy, Lucy, or (sometimes) Tessa is around.

I’m loving this daydream arc for some reason, even if its all a figment of Paulo’s imagination. It’s a shame he didn’t go this route I suppose.

I wonder however if in real life he would really be this considerate though (I mean we know Paulo normally means well but he tends to be a bit rash and panics a whole lot in these situations)

No probs, Skygaze. After IHATEPAULO’s little outburst, I felt the need to state facts. I have a feeling about Mike, though, and I feel he might have to swallow his pride here in the next few chapters to get into Lucy’s good books again.

Prediction: She won’t come out for a long time, because it’s positive or inconclusive.

She’ll hide in Paulo’s bathroom for hours maybe…

Paulo’s dad’ll order pizza or something and they’ll all eat dinner a bit awkwardly once she FINALLY comes out… she won’t say much.

That’s my guess.

Before with David on vaction, Paulo said that even though he still like Lucy, he could never be what she needed. At this point in the daydream and even in the actually story Paulo has become more and more of what she needed. She needed a friend or support and he was there. Paulo doesn’t realize that it’s not what you can do for a person, but the dedication to be willing to do anything for her.

I wish she go back to Mike, but it looks like Paulo and Lucy would be the perfect couple.
