Paulo would have to be a freakin’ masochist if his daydream involved Lucy getting pregnant. And both of their lives kinda falling apart. And so forth.

Yeah yeah, it’s an alternate reality, but that’s BORING.

EDIT: Paulo’s Dad (panel 11): OBJECTION!

But this?
I. Love. It.
I don’t know why, but I love it. Keep up the good work. I will follow this the rest of the way.

P.S 1: The pets are THE GREATEST!

P.S 2: Personally, I would love it if Lucy ended up with Paulo… but, then again, the story has been twisting in different turns since page one, so who knows, right?

And a huge sigh of relief was had by all!

Hahaha, I know that this alternate reality was written out before it became ‘Paulo’s Daydream’ but I can’t help but picture all of this ending with Paulo coming back to reality hours later, finding himself in some crazy situation that he has no memory of getting in, and being all like, “Wait, what the hell?” XD

Alternate reality or no, I am glad that Lucy didn’t wind up preggo. It’s turned into the worst kind of cliche and is honestly a fairly sadistic thing to do to characters that young and has become all too popular. “Want some drama? Give ‘em a baby!” I swear to God, it’s this generations ‘secretly inviting two people on the same date’. I won’t say I’m not curious as to how that would’ve turned out, but I think having an alternate reality set within an alternate reality would run the risk of rending the universe in twain. XD

And while I know this has been said to death, I’m gonna bury it an extra couple of feet and say: Paulo’s dad rocks!

9 months later, they sue the pregnancy test company R-U-PREG for faulty merchandice. Their teacher is later quoted as saying ‘It was the handshake that did it! These reckless teens and their debauturous skin to skin contact!’

Comment ID #91487

Now that she no longer has any reason to cling on Paulo, Lucy will probably ditch him and go back to angsting about Mike. So basically, he’ll get played, used, and then tossed out. That’s probably why this path is so terrible, since even after all that lovey dovey, she never fully cared about Paulo other than “this might be my baby daddy.” ):

Poor Paulo D: He’s so my favorite character too

Mine too, King. Mine too. Something reeeeeeeeaaly bad is gonna happen next. And I think that Lucy would still remain with Paulo. She knows he is reliable (at least here) and he isn’t the type to mindlessly hurt Lucy, unlike a certain “Maishul,” who’s due to have his heart ripped from his chest via Sandy breaking up with him.

Okay, so… no kittens, Paulo and Lucy are really happy, Paulo’s Dad is (slightly) approving, Lucy has moved on from Mike, and the world hasn’t ended (yet)… I hate to sound like a broken record, but seriously, am I the only one a bit concerned about what the bloody h*ll will happen in the next few pages that makes Paulo say “It woulda been a mistake. A big mistake…” at the beginning of this whole daydream?! Everything seems to be going his way right now, so what is his angst-y problem when he is imagining this as a whole?

My guess is Mike, in a jealous rage, stabs Paulo with a knife, where he slowly dies in a heartbroken Lucy’s arms.

There was a very strange moment in which I could see the fundamental truth behind all life after reading this comic, then realizing there was an ad at the top for a Dodge Ram heavy pickup truck. Then it faded and I was left to wonder. To wonder WTF.

EEEEEEEEE (fangirl-squeel) I LOVES teh innocent look on Lucy’s face in panel 12.

Ok, now that thats out of ma system, back to the story. first of all, I would like to comment that ITS ABOUT FRIGGEN TIME. I MEAN THE ANTICIPATION WAS FRIGGEN KILLING ME HERE. XD
Second, when Paulo and Lucy begin to have there fwooshy moment (yes, fwooshy) you almost forget that Paulo’s dad is there. And i LOLd at how fast he was on the reaction time.
Third. All in all, I would have accepted either way the story went.

P.S. I feel I need to tell everyone that I am neither a PauloxLucy supporter nor a MikexLucy supporter. Why? First, I,m only here for the food (well I guess I should say candy lol). Second, I’m just a modest homebody that likes to do reviews of comics I find interesting, so I like to see whether a story will go the way I anticipate it, or take a turn for the worse, or maybe for the better, and so far this comic has practically kept me in excitement since i first started reading it.

YOU DIDN”T DO IT! YOU AVOIDED THE CLICHE!! I FREAKING LOVE THIS COMIC!!! AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAAA I AM SERIOUSLY LAUGHING IN MY JOY RIGHT NOW!!!! 8D Seriously, you are one of the best romance writers I have seen in YEARS, if not EVER. Oh MAN do you have any idea how hard it is to find something like this!? IT SHOULD BE A HIGHLY-PAID CAREER TO FIND THINGS LIKE THIS. And gosh, if it were, I’d DEFINITELY be the man for the job. I just seem to have this way of coming across stuff like this sometimes! AND I LOVE IT!!

Dammit! I don’t know how to read a pregnancy stick thing but it looks like she does not have kittens on the way.
