I wish I was asleep

Anyway here is your page, the first of a chapter that will be wonderful and is 28 pages or 35 I’m not entirely sure

Oooh, this should be an interesting chapter. It might be nice to see a bit more of Paulo’s relationship with Jasmine. Especially since Paulo sucks at dealing with problems.

I love Jazzie but that must suck D|
doesn’t she get to see her friends in school? 0^0 and didn’t she already make plans to hang with him? ><;

and she seemed sweet at first ;-;” she kindof writes him off though D : not in a jerk way per say, just kindof abandoning him all the time ;^; poor Paulo D :
doesn’t she wanna hangout with him?! DX
and I don’t think it’s that weird to have your boyfriend tag along….. >?<; I’m sure he gets sick of never having any real time with her though x-x

Seems Jasmine’s eventually gonna have to make a choice between her busy schedule and Paulo. A lot can stem from that alone, and a 28 page chapter is quite the longrunner.

I’m gonna have to see more before I can guess at anything.

Jasmine sure has a lot of activities that she’s in, funny thing is back then I know of some teen’s in my high school that do a boat load of activities and are able to keep up their grades, I don’t know how they do it but I envy them back then.

Comment ID #170587

Didn’t Jasmine say at the end of Pillow Talk that she would make more of an effort to hang out with Paulo? I guess that is simply not happening. So she was lying? Damn, poor Paulo…I’m getting the feeling that PauloxJasmine won’t last too much longer. Knowing Paulo, he’s bound to blow another goddam fuse like he did before. We can only hope that LucyxPaulo will rise from the ashes of this relationship like a phoenix…

Seriously, in the next page, I can almost imagine Lucy walking up to Paulo all of a sudden and them making small talk. Maybe they’ll even begin hanging out right then and there? That, or the next page will cut to Jasmine hanging out with her friends. The perspective sticking to Paulo sounds a lot more interesting though, I gotta say.

Panel 1: Who is that black and white cat with the blonde hair? She has a yellow bell, kinda like Larken, yet her clothes make me think of Augustus. She seems interesting enough for being a person in the background.

This looks ****ing great. Exactly the right kind of chapter for me. Now Lucy just needs to show up and the short-fuse of the drama will blow up right in our faces (but in a good way). :D

I approve of the spotlight falling on PauloxJasmine. I’d like to see how they deal with this time issue they’ve got. Jasmine’s a cute girl, but I certainly understand Paulo’s predicament. An absent girlfriend is like not having one at all.

And despite what they say, absence does not make the heart grow fonder, at least in the eyes of this cynic. :/

Comment ID #170635

It’s worth considering that if she’s got all this stuff she’s doing, she’s probably missing out on a lot of time just hanging out with her friends. Or maybe she wants to talk to them about relationship issues outside of school. I mean, she’s gotten some new info from Jess, and there’s been plenty of time to ponder it on her own since the party.

Or it’s entirely possible that Jazz is approaching a breaking point with all the stuff she’s doing and would rather not burden him. We don’t really know what all else is going on with her. Maybe her life is even more hectic than Paulo knows.

Either way, eagerly awaiting the next pages.

I want their relationship to work but Jasmine isn’t putting in her fair share. and I don’t know about anyone else but in my high school freshmen weren’t allowed to be in too many activities. (I know that this is just a comic but Jass is spreading herself too thin, she may self distrust)

I sense a disturbence in the force, as if a million voice cryed at the same instant “oh boy, here we go”.
I do not blame Jasmine for taking so many activities, if i was yonger, at her age, i wold have done the same, what i do think that she is droping the balls, is not makin the best to actualy stay with Paulo.
I’m not exatly a Paulo fan but the men is beeing almost Budha Patience, she cold go to her clubs and school meetings, but also make a way that the aftermach activities could include him, or better, just be with him.
Again, i do not Blame Jass, she is thinking of hr future, something i shold have done at her age, but i would totaly understand Paulo if he get tired of waiting.

I’m sure your best friends would understand you if you wanted to go with Paulo instead (Mina would, anyway), so why not? ;; Maybe she’s nervous about seeing him now or something but I’m starting to have somewhat mixed feelings on her.

@Bambalooza: “though next chapter is pretty okay in the bliss department”: quote from the last page comment on the last chapter. There shall be bliss.

I think this chapter is so far looking suspiciously like “Jasmine’s Judgement.” Wasn’t that story a request from Taeshi?

Also, it’s at least November 26th. I don’t know how long Paulo and Jazz have been dating, but it certainly seemed like it was more than five days as of Mischief Night. Maybe David means “a month since your first fight” and it’s the beginning of December now.

Remember all those 50+ chapters where Mike was in almost every page and every panel? Yeah.

Not only has Paulo always been a main character with Lucy, Mike, etc., but just having focus on that one character doesn’t mean that another one isn’t.

She’s probably just a noob at dating…I don’t see her being completely unreasonable…maybe if they just had a heart to heart about how they feel about the time they spend together they can figure something out….unless they they both have very different needs…it might not work out so good.

Jaaaasmiiiiine, you need to make time for your man. ;~;!

She’s one of my favorites but I guess she’s inexperienced at relationships eh.
I’m so surprised that with the way Paulo can sway from one girl to another that Jasmine’s been able to pin him down for so long, with barely seeing him.

Huh…in a way, this kinda reminds me of Mike’s relationship with Sandy. Jasmine and Paulo both like each other, yet they aren’t able to see each other very much. Much like Mike is in a relationship with Sandy, even though they NEVER see each other.

So the question is, will Paulo and Jasmine work out?

We got 27-34 pages left. Greatly anticipating each and every one :P

See now Paulo? This is why you shoulda stayed with Lucy!

For all those ragin’ at Jess, remember, they’re in highschool. Yeah, she sees her friends in her classes more than she sees Paulo at all, but part of maintaining good relationships with those friends is hanging out with them after school as well—not just devoting all your free time to one person, boyfriend or not. And if someone ever tries to convince you that all your free time belongs to them because you’re in a relationship with them, run. They’re going to be a very controlling partner. I know from experience.

So don’t get too mad at Jess for going with her friends to the mall instead of wherever else with Paulo. They probably have the most normal relationship out of all the BCB characters, aside from Daisy and Abraham.

@Sonic the Shapeshifter: We understand that Jasmine has to keep relationships steady and such, but the relationship that’s getting lost is PauloxJasmine. As Paulo says, the only time he sees her is between classes and after school everyday; that’s it. I’m sure they could spend a least a little more time together, don’t you?

Not really liking how Jaz is treating her “boyfriend.” It’s like he comes secondary to everything in her life. And, on top of that, she’s uncomfortable around him now. What is up with that? Paulo is, in my opinion, the most understanding guy in the cast. He’s recently grown a lot and has learned to become more objective when it comes to relationships, except when it comes to Mike and then he just picks on him cuz it’s fun :-)

So something I noticed… you said, ‘Vero is asleep’ which clearly can be read as Veronica.

However! I would like to direct the audience’s attention to the first panel, exhibit A. You can clearly see a cat character with a bell, sleeping!

“So what does this mean to me, the average web comic reader?” That’s a good question billy everyteen. it means that there may be a NEW CHARACTER! DUN DUN DUN…!!!

… Or, more realistically, that I should probably never visit a court room during trial.

edit* And that I occasionally read too deeply into things. (jokingly or otherwise)

Other wise I guess he could plan something for the next Jasmine has some free time. Well…That is if Paulo has the patience to do that. He shown plenty so far so I guess we’ll see…In other news, this was a great chapter.

3) You know that hotels always have ****** internet connections, (take note from the guy who tried connecting his psp, ds lite, smart phone, and laptop) so why the hell even bother trying to connect?

Ih, Jazzy, honey.

Time to learn one of the basic lessons of love :

Being in a relationship means changing your life to accommodate your partner. It means making time for them.

You can’t just expect someone who is in love with you to be happy just being stuck in here and there, wherever you have a gap in your schedule.

You are treating my boy P like he is the least important thing in your life, and that, girlfriend, is just plain unacceptable.

Make the time. Make a sacrifice.

Love means change.
