The ponies poster is just so offsetting to Daisy’s utter sadness in the first panel.

But Rachael seems to be able to pick herself up pretty quick.

Looks like somebody is feeling a little by sorry. O well at least Tess looks sorry for what happened she really got what was coming to her now didn’t she bet Tess would give anyhin to undo that day. Now I feel like a jerk thinking that Jessica was the bitch and Tess was jus being bullied HOW COULD I HAVE FELT SORRY FOR TESS???? well at least she’s turned around now. And look at all the crying! Wow it’s pretty funny what people use as place holders some use dots some just the closest letter and some actually say something I failed ( I think ) I was using my bedside clock ( which is off by a few min)instead of my iPod touch clock which is right at the top of the screen :€

I guess that’s the end of that flashblack… what else is in store for this chapter?

As time goes by, you realize who you were back then and how much you’ve changed, even though other’s don’t notice it nor want to notice it.

Tess must be feeling very bad about it right now… I can feel it from her experssion after that flashback.

If I was Tess, I would’ve said, atleast, “I feel awful about that now. I know what I did was wrong and I’m sorry for it.” That would the least I could do at this time.

the red things at the top of Rach’s ears look they’re connecting them to her head.

also, that look on tess’ face made me rethink how much of a bitch she is. i know it’s been explained before how much she regrets it, but that’s the most emotional expression on her face ive ever seen.

if i were jess, i would’ve forgiven her.

I hope all these long comments don’t break your eyeballs or something I know it hurts me to type it.
I have tons more to say but I couldn’t cuz I ran out of time with the last comment, I wanted to wait til around 50 like I usually end up around but my iPod touch is dying and I have school tomorrow so I’ll post now. First off, ignore any typos in my last comment, like I said before I was running out of time. I also want to say that 11th is pretty good with a unreliable clock and an iPod touch. Also, Rachel’s teeth are weird, first they can’t be seen and then they’re all that can be seen ( last two panels) I think that’s all that I needed to say. Edit: RJ Rouge brings up a good point, it’s hard to think of Jessica and Rachel as innocent because of what they did to Paulo, but this chapter definitely makes you change what you previously thought about the characters. Are your eyes broken yet?
Ps. BCB rules!! But you already know that. Sooooooo yeah, :€

And that’s how you can tell who your true friends are: The ones that know better than to believe what you hear in the hallways.

Of course, this will almost certainly spiral uncontrollably into even more rumors about the exact nature of their relationship. Because that’s how high school works.

Here’s a legitimate question about the odd dialogue in this page.

Jess is obviously talking about Rachel, but she’s saying things like “I hope she doesn’t find out about these things” even though Rachel is in the same room with her.

Is the boxed dialogue in the lower half of the page supposed to be Jess’s thoughts during that time in the school hallway, or part of her monologue taking place in the bedroom?

I just can’t tell. Not that it affects the story at all, it just sort of seems weird to me.

:D i dont think u need to color coordinate the monolgue and the speech bubbles. in most comics i have seen they have it set up as u do.

(to: f**k off) *speech bubbles r usually used for the speech. if it doesnt have tht tail near some1s mouth, and is square shaped, it usually means its a narration or some1 thinking . :x just a heads up so to speak for other comics u will run into.

I’m really liking the duality of Tess’s character, seeing how different she was just a few years ago. I think this is more realistic. People try to lump others into certain groups are archetypes, our mind try to simplify human beings, but we are all far too complex for true comprehension.

Comment ID #153644

“Seemed” is the key word here. It looks obvious to me that Rach knew everything at the moment, or else she’d have asked Jess why she was crying. Acting so oblivious is a form of forcing Jess to forget about it and carry on with her life. Only thing I see that could destroy my theory is the “?” balloon from Rach in panel 6.

Since dogs do not have boobs or wear clothes, what we are seeing here and all throughout this story are furries. In other words, people who like to dress up like animals for sexual gratification.

Unfortunately, the one who likes to dress up as the persona “Rachel” has breast cancer and sadly has had a mastectomy.

Part of me wants to say to just start ignoring him, but that would be too easy. See, I like a challenge in trolls… At the same time, I don’t want to fill Taeshi’s comment box up with this debate. This place is for people who want to enjoy the comic, not get into a ******* match with everyone and the more that guy talks, the more people get annoyed. I just wish **** off would realize that and go away. Or at least stop bothering people. It ruins what the comments are for, feedback about the comic, not trolling. Still, I feel that some clarification needs to be made. Sighing or laughing aren’t exactly my thing.

@**** you

Your first message was a legitimate question. I was glad to see you actually taking a positive turn on all this along with taking my advice and not being a troll. Then I scrolled down.


I’m sorry, but you’re back to a troll again with the “furry” comment. First things first, go read Taeshi’s section in the About page. She says flat out that she didn’t make furries, but she was influenced by loony-toons style cartoons. So your really going to stand there and tell me that Loony-toons is furry?

And let me make another point. Furries and Anthropomorphism are two different things. Furry is sometimes what you claimed, but is commonly used to refer to Anthropomorphic animals. In case you don’t know what that means, Anthropomorphic animals are animals who have human characteristics; walk on two legs, have figures, human anatomy and, in most cases, the ability to talk and understand one or more languages. Your looking more and more like a troll when you say things like that, man.

At the same time, I’m almost starting to think that it is just satire. Your trying to be funny. I mean, no one can made such a drastic mistake, right? Especially when you made it painfully clear that you can and will at time, ask legitimate questions that are actually solid.

@EternalOne: Well technically half/most Loony Tunes are furries. Unintentional ones, but by one of the various definitions (including the one you gave) they are. I know I’m not making any friends with that statement, but if I was here to make friends I wouldn’t say hald the things I do….

On a side note


I love this page. I personally found bits and pieces to just be magnificent. I love how Daisy looks. Adorable. Sad, but adorable. Jess looks fantastic and Rachel does look really cute.

That being said, there is only one thing I’d change on all this. Dat Doorknob. Maybe it’s just me being blah, but that doorknob looks flat in the last panel. I’m really not one to criticize other people’s work, but I kinda felt like pointing it out. Dun hate meh! XD I hope I’m not nit-picking…


Half of Loony Toons are anthropomorphic. By **** off’s logic, half of Loony Toons is people in animal suits trying to have sex with everyone. I don’t think Bugs Bunny was really some guy in a suit trying to sleep with Porky Pig. He’s using the literal definition of furry, not the usual one that is used as a shortcut; because no one wants to write out anthropomorphic every time they talk about a… Well, an anthropomorphic character. Lets face it, it’s a pain in the a** word to write out. XD

And hey, anyone who makes a solid argument without stepping on anyone’s toes is good in my book. You seem like an alight person from all the stuff I’ve read of yours previously. No harm done.

pleaaaase, don’t colour-cordinate the talk bubbles/monologues, it’s a horrible “touch” for the comics, it gonna oversaturate the comic pages, I prefer the classical and clean white ones, and is easier to read, when I read other comics that have the coloured talkbubbles/monologues is to hard to me to read them well and can make me feel headaches ;_;

btw, Rachel looks so cute and lovely there, totally sweetie!! :love:

hahaha, first thing I see when i get here, a debate about if “BSCB” is furry or not :-P

what do you want them to think when one of the adds is the face of Lucy in a “meme generator” background with the words “Punch A Furry” in it, some “Anons” would have made its way here, just dont feed the troll guys, its better that way

I know feeding them is bad, but one way or another, someone will get mad. I find that drawing his attention with calm, collected reason is a good way to distract trolls from the other, more sensitive readers.

Trolls feed off conflict and, by reacting calmly, I turn conflict into debate. While he rants and raves, I make him look bad through reasoning and order. No one else gets bothered by him, so long as I manage him well enough. At most, they agree with me and move on.

I’ve tried it all over and it usually works. Eventually he’ll get tired and go away, if this case is like all the others. Trolls don’t like to reason, they like to anger. It’s so easy pushing them over the edge like this.

You guys seriously need to research the proper meaning of “troll”

just sayin’

Honestly, it’s far more annoying to have people dismiss people’s opinions as trolling when a lot of the time people who “appear to be trolls” are just people who heavily disagree with something. Heavily disagreeing with things alongside a more blunt way of speaking does not equal troll. Know the difference.

I agreed with you, up until his comments just lost all forms of coherency. He might not be a troll, but personally, I think opinionated comments went out the window pretty fast with this guy. A troll is someone who takes pleasure in conflict, so he tries fighting with others to fulfill that desire; or that would be the kind way of saying it. It’s not hard to dismiss someone as a troll and confusing someone who greatly dislikes something with a troll isn’t hard either. However, look at it like this:

He said earlier he removed BCB from his bookmark and that it has one less daily viewer. Now he’s on here the next day, berating your comic again. An opinion becomes more than that when you state it over and over in obnoxious, rude and offensive ways. He’s made his point clear. He did that on the last page. And I accepted it as an opinion. I told him he was just ‘seeming’ like a troll and telling him to be less rude about it, or people would dismiss him as such.

Then he came back the next day and, as I said, asked a legitimate question that might have confused inexperienced or new readers. And then he want on to just make that obnoxious ‘furry’ comment. That is when I decided he was acting like a troll again; when he persisted in the insults. I have nothing against him personally and quite frankly, I don’t really know for sure if he’s serious about all these comments or if he’s just trying to be funny. If you look back, I never said outright that he was a troll, though I can see how my last reply to him could be read like I was.

And in the end, all this in itself is just my own opinion. Frankly, I’d like to see this all be over and done with, but I feel like he’s detrimental to the comic and its readers at this point. I just don’t want to sit back and let him say bad things about the comic when it’s not even opinionated, like that furry comment. He’s trying to bait others into angry responses or at least upset them, whither he knows it or not.

I’d be surprised if her best friend believed a bunch of, frankly stupid, rumors that just started up overnight, to say the least.

@NoRAd & any Others who are all conflicted about not being able to hate either character: Thankfully, human beings are capable of a more complex association between entities than “must love X while hating Y.” So you don’t have to want to kill either of them.

I will say this Taeshi, you did a lot of work on the faces in this page. Tess’s “guilty” expression, past Rachel’s “friendly” expression (although I believe she is just ignoring the rumors), present Jess’s “side glare” at Tess and past Jess’s “realistic tear dropping” after being roughed up (personally I can’t stand to see a girl cry).

The face expressions were the first thing that caught my attention. Really gives the readers an understand of what they feel. Great work. 8-)

I suppose your right, but I don’t really mean to sound like I’m bashing on him too much. I blame that on the letters, for not being able to convey tone well enough. I’m trying to keep this as a lighthearted discussion but push it in a direction so no one will be offended or anything. And, for the same reason I said before about tone, I thought he was just being obnoxious for no reason. But it seems, from the reply he gave me, it was just a misunderstanding. On on the textual fisticuffs and sounding whiteknight-ish, I blame that on my tendency to talk extravagantly all the time. Tends to make people misinterpret what I mean.

To put it simply, I meant no harm with all this. I tend to try and fight off trolls where I see them, not just here but everywhere. Personally, I got tired of them mucking up pleasant and enjoyable sites a long time ago and try to at least take their attention when I see one. I guess here it was just a case of seeing demons where there are none, no?


Well, its at least a relief to know you weren’t just trolling. And I take everything seriously. Call it a bad personal habit, but as a professional, I got kinda jaded by everything and started being a little more ruthless. I suppose we all have flaws. Sorry for the misunderstanding, but some of your comments did come off as a little less opinionated and a little more trollish sometimes.

But I guess we can all get that way from time to time. I do remember a situation or two where people accused me of trolling for a similar reason, so… Yeah!

I’m not sure we’re going to get a happy chapter after this. It stands to reason that manipulating Lucy would be the last step Augustus would take in setting up whatever it is he is planning for Alejandro’s revenge. And I would imagine Augustus probably already had a backup plan for how to get Lucy wherever it is he needs her. In other words, it’s entirely possible that the next chapter will be far more dramatic still (and about time; we’ve only been waiting for 22 chapters for Alejandro’s return).

Rachel seems to have a thing for putting on a happy face to keep others happy. Did it with her brother earlier. Did it with Jessica on this page. In fact, smiling, laughing, and being cheerful are her most consistent traits, IIRC. That one time slapping Tess a ways back and her breaking down after Aaron couldn’t hear her might be her only shown sad moments in the comic. Aaron’s getting hurt and her getting hit this chapter notwithstanding, of course.
Rachel does her thing. :P

@42: More Alejandro time later is going to suck. Not even bothering to be nice is likely. And he already has been shown to be willing to beat guys and girls senseless alike.

@Blackshadow: Probably because her friends (and the readers) are not only automatically siding with her without knowing the whole story, but their demonizing Jess and Rachel (execpt for Daisy) and assuming things about them while giving Tess the benefit of the doubt. I know that that’s usually what friends do anyway, but as we’ve just established, Tess is responsible for Jess’s **** reputation but feels guilty. So to her, it feels wrong watching all these girls gang up on Jess and accuse her of being something she’s not and for having a reputation that Tess invented. So she’s setting the record straight, right there and then.

Floweramon March 29, 2011, 1:14 PM EST.

Comment ID #153785

I’ve been reading this series month or two. Sometimes several chapters a day, sometimes none for days. Nevertheless, today I caught up with the story.

To describe with few words:
Heavy stuff to read. Sometimes painfully heavy.

Latter events in Acapulco. Lucy’s confession and day after that. Paulo’s and Lucy’s night. Abbey’s past and it’s traumas.
The comic is overall most of the time kinda angsty, but those were fewstories that were just heavy -difficult, even- to read.

And now, this.
Before this I thought that Rachel and Jessica were the evil high-shcool bullies that had fun trying to destroy Tess’ soul. But after I caught up few hours ago, all I could think was along the lines of “…Tess had no soul. She ruined lives of several people, and still she isn’t treated worse than this?”

No doubt that later something that will again change my opinion will happen/occur, but today I had few depressingly “heavy” hours due this comic.

…Not many comics, books, or even movies can do that. I have to salute the author.

But for those saying that Rachel has no idea what’s going on, I’m not sure if that’s true. I mean, she sees her friend crying….I’m sure she’s heard the rumors, which is why she doesn’t ask about the tears. She just acts the same as always, showing that she is a real friend and doesn’t give a damn whether or not those rumors are true =]

I can see why Jessica fell for Rachel. When the rest of the world hates you, and you feel so empty and alone…If you have a friend that lights the way, they become special. It happens.

I can’t say I’ve ever felt gay feelings like that towards my male friends. In fact, I’m as straight as an arrow. But that doesn’t stop me from being able to empathize with Jessica.
