Comment ID #76649

Despite the whole sorta date rape thing, which I guess is bad enough to regret, this path is so far turning out better than the ‘original’. :-\

Moreover because it sort of leaves Mike ‘free’ to be with Sandy and stop emoin’ out on Lucy, and Paulo in this path doesn’t get basically date raped by some girl for no other reason than to hurt Tess. Yeah, Tess is ‘hurt’ either way, but at least with Lucy she could had sort of seen it coming and what not.

First off @Kurt the song SOOO fits the mood of the comic right now. Nice pick!

I love the way the daydream is going. I can see Lucy hag Paulo back, and in the next frame they go for the passion kiss, close up on there lips almost touching… Just to have David or someone else do something to make him snap out of it. :)

Rachel is colon+capital P
Abbey is colon+sad bracket

Also, Taeshi… I looked back at Another Shoulder and compared the pages… and I love how they’re perfect parallels of each other. :) Like the ‘awkward walk’ between Paulo and Lucy.

The original ended with Paulo and Lucy happily saying goodbye to each other and Lucy hiding in her locker away from Mike. Hmm. Does this mean this story will go PAST that, since there’s considerably more pages left? :D Ooh. I’m intrigued.

@ Zari - Yeah, I know, but she’s listed as deceased. -.- I refuse to believe!

What I want to see is this:

David: … Say, whatever happened to headphone dog?
Paulo: … You mean ******?
David: Eh? Kizu-what?
Paulo: … Kizzie.
David: Yeah! Kizzie!

Then some explanation of her having to move towns… (despite no one ever noticing!)

Again I agree with wierdplatformer, i really do wish this was actually happening.

If it were it would create a kind of love intricacy with Sandy/Mike and Paulo/Lucy.

Maybe also it could create a perm relationship and a reunion with Mike and Sandy.

Isn’t love sometimes so complicated? Especially with furries like us? :3 yay

@Jack- MikexLucy OTP, and Cerebus Syndrome will have been undone, I think. But wheres the fun in them NOT psychologically torturing themselves?

I agree with most everybody here, I kinda like this outcome and almost wish it had really happened. But! I also like Paulo/Jasmine<3 so I’m cool with how it actually turned out…. Even though Lucy is being hurt in the process :(.

@ Zari I felt the exact same way. Then Taeshi got to this daydream thing. Now it has me questioning how much Mike and Lucy really belong together. Now, I’m starting to support more along the lines of Mike/NOBODY and Lucy/Paulo. I really hate Mike, now. If only he could’ve showed that he wasn’t an unfeeling robot and actually let Lucy down gently when he rejected her. ALL THE ****TARD NEEDED TO DO WAS HUG HER ONCE WHEN HE REJECTED HER. And choose his words better…

Long comment is looooooooooooong

@wraithtaker: Mike has been rather unfeeling. He could at least, y’know…have been nice about it. We all know he’s not a bad guy…he just needs to learn that even tough ole Lucy has a breaking point. Especially since he said himself that she’s practically dependent on him.

Poor Paulo… I kind of wish this is how it actually happened. :’( Lucy deserves someone who will actually love her.

Takeru August 17, 2010, 5:01 AM EST.

Comment ID #77369

… I’m kind of glad that this didn’t happen. I think Lucy respects him more for not having done it. I think he’s got a more solid chance at something long term with lucy now than he would with this scenario. Just because it gets off the ground sooner doesn’t mean that it will last longer.

It’s either a hug back, or a slap in the face… or kick in the gut… either way…

It’s getting harder and harder to remember this is a dream sequence

I mean Paulo even imagines reactions, with that richiness of details? What is him a novelist? XD

Yeah, sorry to tell you guys, but this evening we’re replacing the comic with a sports blog. We’ll have the latest on all the sports that make your world.

Also, don’t fill the survey out twice! You realise it dilutes the usefulness of it all? It’s supposed to help advertisers understand our audience here, and none of you have clones that need representation.

Considering this is all a daydream, Paulo has an extremely vivid imagination. Like, he should write comics or something.

You awkwardly hug that girl. Hug her hard.

See? Paulo IS a great guy. He won’t take no for an answer, when clearly they both have feelings for each other.

And that thing about Lucy’s feelings for Mike… I agree with Paulo; seriously, who the **** cares? Who cares what the other people will think? I wouldn’t. Mike is nothing to her right now. Paulo is the one who WANTS to be there for her. I think that’s the most important thing to recognize. Paulo WANTS to love Lucy and go out with her. Because of that, he should.
