Author commentary

Veronica: Oh no time for an early update again! Don’t think that this will be the norm, this week has just been chock-full of events that would make it better to update early. We will go back to normalness on Friday.. so don’t expect a change to this time now :-[

First order of business, THE STORE IS OPEN. YES THE STORE IS OPEN LOOK AT THE STORE AND BUY SOME THINGS it is awesome and Souppy worked so hard on it instead of doing his LAWWWWWW so you better appreciate it or something. It is a delight.

Second order of business is that the gallery section is now changed. It links to CANDYBOORU. So if you wanna do some fun tagging, or if you have some fanart you want on the site, you can do it yourself! No relying on Souppy and I to take a million years! Convenience!!!!

In other news lol the continuation of daydreamchan. i wonder if people can tell this is a daydream now because LOOK SOME CRAZY CONTRADICTIONS. Paulo said something else to his dad! Does that mean this is an alternate reality?!?!?!? and that he WASN’T lying to lucy???!?!?!

look at me i’m spoonfeeding

i guess i gotta do it

oh lucy you and your bawing. Paulo don’t take kindly to it. even though he still adores you

oh right happy birthday hebs

We want to email you some comics!

Join the thousands of BCB fans who look forward to an email of cat drama every Monday morning, and we’ll send you a dozen “Ships Ahoy” comic strips, and one every week after that!

We’ll send a link to the comics you missed, straight away.

Yo Mr. Paulo’s Dad, looking good with your hardhat. I think he might be my favorite character now.

YES! The store is open! Actually, I have a question re: the character charms. Is it possible to order 2 from one set and 2 from the other, but still receive the discount?

Also, I can simultaneously support my pairings and mock the stereotypical rabid Twilight fans? Count me in!

Wow. It’s only Tuesday where I live and there’s an update? Awesomeness…

… Wait, that’s probably due to the fact that it was originally an incentive. Everyday posts and all that. XD Durp durp, I is stoopid.

Oh dear. Paulo’s dad’s looking traumatised this time round. With Lucy upset, it kinda makes it look like Paulo raped her… which is kinda how Lucy sees it…

ravengal August 10, 2010, 5:28 PM EST.

Comment ID #72913

This chapter is more than likely to be about what happened if Paulo actually slept with Lucy, which leads to Paulo knowing that his choice was right in the first place.

FYI this chapter is gonna get pretty awkward.

Look on Paulo’s dad’s face: Priceless

Xydrek August 10, 2010, 7:25 PM EST.

Comment ID #72934

Judging by the fact that this is Paulo’s daydream of why he should not have “done” Lucy leads me to think that Paulo will view a very negative daydream. “would of been A big mistake” was his quote after all

Anyways Gratz on the update Taeshi.

Lucy is going to say Paulo did RAEP. Ugh.

At first, I thought I’d really enjoy this chapter. Now with this page, I just wanna cringe and stop reading until the next chapter. It’s NEAT and all and fills some questions, but it’s not what I’d want. Thank god it’s fake<333.

Also! I’m saving up for the fanpack. The candy is a first for any webcomic I’ve read, but it’s neat and different! And I might just cave in and buy the Abbey charm. OHABBEYILOVEYOUSOMUCH. Have fun making moolah huns<3.

Wow, I’m so excited about the store! It’s all so cool! (Even though I’m not allowed to buy anything from it; my parents don’t even know about me reading online comics, and they’d kill me for reading this one for it’s content! DAMN YOU PAULO FOR HAVING SO MUCH FRIGGIN SEX WITH PEOPLE X( I just wish I could buy something! If I could buy anything there, I’d get the BCB Fanpack! All the stuff is so cool! P.S. Taeshi: even though I can’t buy anything, I still adore and completely 100% support this comic and even advertise it in emails.

Yay, early updates! I’ve been up all night with nothing to do and this saved me from my boredom! THANK YOU TAESHI!!

P.S. if anyone is dumb enough to do it they can read my blog at Basically it’s just a story I’m working on right now ‘cause I’m bored of summer. It’s even more fun to read if you’re a Sonic the Hedgehog fan! =) If you’re interested, go there, leave a comment including the fact you are a BCB fan and it’s good!

P.S. Today my cousin attempted to suicide herself by drinking a lot of medicines. Its a good thing she was rushed to Jekson’s Hospital. She’s fine now but this was her second attempt to kill herself,did she forget that suicide souls go to hell permanently!? The family will need a talk with her and hope she never do such foolish deeds again!!!

Many kill for a purpose,but the reality is still the same.

Flash August 11, 2010, 1:36 AM EST.

Comment ID #73059

@True Liar yeah I hope so. The reason why she tried to kill herself,twice,is because she says that she is no longer loved by anyone. Now without a father she is going nuts. She was once the most beautiful girl in the Tagaza family roots but now people keep calling her ‘Baboy’ ,in English ‘Pig’,cause she grew fat this last months and her skin tone darkens. She used to be a model but now she is no longer picture perfect.
I also believe that she’s jealous of her sister,who now is a model. Also her boyfriend broke up with her. So no wonder why she is so down. But killing herself is not a option at ALL! she needs to learn its never too late. She can start a new life right? God Bless her soul…

Paulo’s dad was not there that day and Paulo’s mom is missing.

@People who wouldn’t think it’d reach 25 pages
There’s your answer. Them going to school with Lucy obviously scarred for life and Paulo incredibly angsty about the whole situation.

This daydream. I did not know how… we’ll say, ‘realistic’, Paulo’s imagination could be. It’ll be interesting to see where this goes~

Additionally: Keyrings? ‘team x’ buttons? Appropriately themed-candies~? Ohh, if only I had money. ;~; But the store. It looks fantastic, so organized but colourful~.

Engineer is kredit to!—adding humorous bits of ironic awkwardness that adds to the melodramatic script of the plotline.

Also if anyone still hasn’t caught on yet, this is a daydream from Paulo in the beginning of the chapter.
