Comment ID #72017

Oh Paulo, so bad at sex you make the girl cry.

This is a surprisingly mature daydream for Paulo to have, though I guess he does know people.

Lucy is so desperate and upset here… poor daydream-Lucy. Apparently Lucy is not really a very lucky one in dreams.

That little smile that Paulo had… really, REALLY the wrong expression here.

But oh well, dramallama time!

And yes, she is now baring it all! No ribbon = Lucy is naked. Possibly symbolic of her losing her virginity?

Ironically, the thing that horrifies me the most about these comments, all the comments ever for these comics, is not the people who can’t figure out its a daydream.

No, its the people who, during Another Shoulder, said that Paulo DESERVED to have sex with Lucy because he was being nice to her, and the person here who is confused why she is upset given that she wanted him to have sex with her last night.

Seriously folks. I know most people fail hard at interpersonal interactions, but let me explain: Lucy was desperate and depressed. She needed someone - anyone - to fill the void. But she DIDN’T. What she really needed was someone to cry on, someone to hold her, someone to tell her that she is awesome and that everything will be alright.

Paulo, in reality, knew this. Daydream-Paulo did what Paulo wanted to do, but knew was wrong, and now he’s suffering for it because Lucy really didn’t want to have sex with him.

So, if a girl, who has just been rejected by a guy, comes to you, crying and pawing at you, the correct response is to be nice to her, hold her, comfort her… but not to have sex with her. Same goes for guys, actually. Being nice does not give you sex privileges; indeed, if you think it does, then you aren’t nice at all, but a terrible person.

Paulo is a better person than all of you who thinks he deserved sex from Lucy for putting up with her.

@Titanium Dragon
You have strong points and all, but remember that the majoity of people who are saying ‘Paulo should have been able to nail her’ are most likely junior high-highschool kids. They’re young and stupid (along with me, harhar.)

Jinx August 8, 2010, 5:05 PM EST.

Comment ID #72027

While wisdom comes with experience, stupidity is timeless.

In other words, if you’re young and stupid, you will someday be old and stupid. Lack of wisdom is one thing, but this is not about wisdom, but about actually thinking of other people as people, and that’s not something which they will pick up with time. They will simply be awful people forever. Its nice guy syndrome, where you think that being a “nice guy” entitles you to things, but as it turns out, if altruism isn’t altruistic, then it isn’t altruism at all.

Comment ID #72041

TitaniumDragon, you’re arguing opinions as fact. Has it been proven that unintelligent people can’t become wise? Hell no! Just the opposite, man. My father has proven that. When he was young, he was never in class, was proud to get D’s, loved drugs, sex, and violence, etc etc. But all it took was a single life-changing event (falling out of a boat) and work to turn it around. Plus, there’s a reason why it’s called “young and stupid”. Ever hear of hormones? Those hit, kids can’t handle it, and do things they’d otherwise NEVER do. Trust me, I’ve got experience with this.

Also, since when has Carlo been considered altruistic? He does have a sense of morals, I’ll give ya that, but he is in no way altruistic, so I’ll just discount that puny argument, k?

Oh Lucy. Even in Paulo’s daydreams you end up causing a whole lot of misunderstandings!

Paulo probably shouldn’t have slept with her, since she was pretty upset in “Another Shoulder” and probably wasn’t thinking straight, so even if it seems like she wanted it…yeah, bad idea.

Current evidence points to Paulo not taking Lucy’s virginity = good thing. Ah well. 21 pages remaining, so we shall see.

Ok… Ok… For everyone who’s having such a hard time figuring out what Paulo took… I’ll throw you a bone…

He took Lucy’s ******. She was clearly being irresponsible with it, shoving it in his face and asking him to stick things in it just because she was feeling sad, so he wrestled with her all night, and finally took and hid her ****** (you can see her checking herself and realizing it’s missing in panels 5 & 6).

She’s ****** off now, because she wants her ****** back so she can go and convince Mike to stick things in it, and in the next page we’re gonna see Paulo getting all angry about it and telling her he took it for her own good.

I can’t believe Paulo gave into temptation, despite knowing Lucy wasn’t well. Your heart’s in the right place when it comes to your friends, Paulo, but you’re a bit too impulsive.

Wonder what Jasmine would say if she knew this?

Normally, after I come back from school, I’d check the comments and there’d be at least 20. But goddamn, 126 comments?! Jesus, Taeshi. You really got people chattering about this chapter.

I truly am feeling sorry for this dimension’s Lucy, but Paulo’s replies to her are just killing me. “Hi. Yeah, I guess I did take your virginity :)” Freaking hilarious! XD

@David, I know that’s a widely-used metaphor, but in my opinion it’s flawed. You don’t use a ***** to unlock a ******. And if you use the hymen as a point, may I point out that hymens can be broken without sex and in this day and age it’s alot more common more that to happen.

Sorry, I just really don’t like that metaphor.

Still, in a way i feel most sorry for Paulo, i don’t envy the beating he may get… perhaps not only from Lucy… and i feel a bit guilty, as i’m not sure i would’ve done any different in Paulo’s shoes……

people who think lucy is being overemotional obviously either dont know the meaning of love or think that sex isnt such a big deal (probably lost it to someone they didnt know or care about very much.) Also they probably dont understand girls very well either ;p or maybe they just ever got laid and think shes lucky to have got sex

Well, since this is a daydream Paulo is having, I’d say it’s just how he thinks it would go down. Whether or not it actually is how it would happen is anyone’s guess, though considering the fact that this is likely the only look into this ‘what-if’ scenario we’re ever going to get, it could be considered to hold some form of hypothetical canon.

Hah! I just had a thought: in several ways this is like a BCB fanfic actually written by Taeshi! XDD

But in this case the meaning is the first listed … blech. I’m waaay to young to think about that stuff!

I like the interpretation that Lucy’s missing ribbon is supposed to symbolize that she’s naked.

Although I could be wrong, I’m fairly certain that all of the characters wear at least one piece of clothing. As long as they wear one item, they’re clothed. Lucy has her ribbon. When it’s gone, it’s like she’s in the nude, and it is treated as such.

Also, didn’t Taeshi say in the NSFW thread that she knew what she wanted to happen if Paulo and Lucy had done the deed, and she was thinking about doing an incentive comic? If this was the result of that (which it was), even though it’s just a daydream, we can safely assume that this is what would actually have happened.

Which just shows that Paulo has the world’s most intuitive imagination in existence.

“Another Path” Ah! Good Morning to everyone! Oh my something in this comic is broken today Lolz;D! Surely this time Paulo’s father will really have a BIG GRIN on his face!!!

P.S. I got electrocuted today when I was pulling a plug with my hands still wet…
It was very shocking…….yet I LIKED IT!!!

If your having a nightmare and you wanna stop it,here are 5 options for you to choice.

1. Try controlling it though Lucidity and change it to a more suitable dream,if fails try the next option…

2. Try screaming in your dream,may cause you to wake up,or pinching yourself,looking at your hands. it too fails move to the next option…

3. Try to enjoy the nightmare who knowns it may counter your fear to a great adventure,but if it still fails then go to the other option…

4. Try to endure the terror your in now. Let time pass by and hope that you wake up. But if still you can’t stand the horror then you have no choice but to move to the last option…

5. SCREAM AS HAD AS YOU CAN,GO WILD,LOSE YOUR MIND!!! Pray that someone will wake you up from your torment. AND I MEAN PRAY VERY HARD FOR SOMEONE TO COME SAVE YOU…But if all else fails……..this means one thing.
Your Dead…

The idiocy is funny enough, but the reactions of those who are smart (debatable for some of the people) upon viewing the idiocy is even funnier.

Your first time having sex was with someone you completely trusted, who loves you completely. That’s more than most High-Schoolers can say, isn’t it? You’re lucky he didn’t take advantage of you. You wanted it. You got it.
