Just a bit sick? Pfft.

I love how it takes a while for Lucy to react. She must be REALLY out of it. Also: Dragging her off to help in her time of need? Trying to recreate “Another Path” are we Paulo? Or maybe I’m just too PauloxLucy.:p

Must.. Resist… Saying… First… Dangit

Heheh i didn’t notice at first. I was like, “waitaminute, lucy moved!” then I was all, “OH THE PAGE :D

So what was her mom gonna do? And ‘Spoken For?’ What does that mean?

The only time I get a top comment. :/


downwards @ the Destroyer: Paulo pulled away because, as he said, “you’re burning.” She’s running a fever and obviously Paulo is not fond of hot sweaty things.

HEY TAESHI the roof in the three bottommost panels changes.

ANYWAY, seems as though Lucy isn’t quick to forget Paulo’s taken, even though Paulo seems to easily forget XD

Mystery ****ing solved! She’s just a little bit sick (and by little, we mean she is on her own deathbed).

Lucy is so out of it…it’s fascinating but at the same time terrifying. Something must really be wrong with her. Admittedly though, I just had to laugh when she’s talking and all of a sudden she goes “Mmmmmm”. Her flat mouth and expression make her look like a caveman. XD

“Don’t touch me; you’re spoken for.” This one line could either lead to nothing or something very, VERY fast. It could be a game-changer or just another line of dialogue. Just depends on how Paulo reacts to it.

In any case, Lucy shouldn’t be that upset that Paulo wants to help her. He promised to be there for her in her time of need, and right now, in her condition, SOMEBODY better help her right goddam now, otherwise…

Haha I know exactly how Lucy feels right now. More than once I’ve gone to work when I should have gone home, or even to a hospital. Being vulnerable and weak is not something that Lucy likes so she puts on a tough act and tries to muscle through it, but sadly her body can’t keep up with her demands. She should really go home and get some rest even if she doesn’t want people to worry about her. :x

Just another word of thanks, Taeshi: You work pretty hard. Making sure you make some money with sketch orders all night, then getting the comic page up while on the last bit of vacation; it takes some dedication. We all appreciate it, even if some fans are… pushy. -_- So thank you.

I don’t think Lucy has been taking care of herself lately… there’s sick, and then there’s sick when your body is weak. She can’t even seem to think straight.

Lets see if people get this:
The color change of the roof is because she is being pulled along.
She is hot and out of it because she has a fever, not drunk.
I’m pretty sure she snuck out “trying not to let her mom” notice that she did.

Ok, y’know it;d been bugging me, all the LucyxPaulo stuff people mentioned, I really want her to end up with him, but when I read the FAQ, I thought it said Mike and Lucy would be together, well, I went back to the FAQ, and it said No! then I saw that it switches >.>
You are one evil person, and extremely clever, but with that knowledge, I have hope for mah pairing 8-)

Spoken for or not, get that Khao Manee in her house to get her cooled down! Furious Abbey (Even if you have to accept a few punches and scratches and possibly blood lost…and even if she may scream out “RAPE!” while being dragged to her home.) What is Lucy thinking? :/

Oh man have we all been there. The sort of sick where you space out. You try to say something but just end up with that low rumbling groan of “Mmmmmmmm”. How white knight of Paulo to be the good Samaritan here, despite Lucy always misreading his intentions.

I have a suspicion that she wasn’t as sick when she left home. Maybe she thought she could just wing it. Or perhaps she thought that if she were sick, Mike would break his silence and comfort her? It’s possible, I think. :/

Comment ID #172546

i’m unsure where people are pulling this ‘drunk’ theory from. I’m guessing the ‘mmmmmm’ panel is just a continuation of her finishing the word ‘mum’ from the previous panel. eg; ’ mummmmmmm’ like she’s trailing off as she’s delirious and all. when paulo grabs her, if you check the backgrounds in the preceding panels you’ll notice she’s actually moving along a bit before finally blurting out ‘ZOMG YOU’RE TAKEN’.
probs a fever or illness. or i think someone mention lack of insulin at some point in the comments. if true then perhaps another problem to add to the list of ‘lucy’ haha.

Steak87 July 14, 2011, 9:46 AM EST.

Comment ID #172547

Like I said, Steak, I’ve had really high fevers before ! This is exactly how someone would act, with the “mmmmmm” and everything, making noise to try to distract yourself from how miserable you feel. Paulo’s reaction makes it clear just how hot this fever is ! She might even risk brain damage… D:

Also to clarify, a fever is a reaction to an illness, so she certainly has both.

that’s probably not it anyhow, but it may also that she does not want to appear weak (tough girl act) and have others worry about her.

Vacation multi-tasking. The fact that we’re getting updates right now, considering she’s pretty far from home, doing con/sketch stuff, and dealing with any number of people who complain instead of noting the situation… Go you.

PauloXLucy is starting to grow on me…I think in a way they kind of need each other. Paulo is a really social giving person and Lucy needs that…Lucy tends to attach easily and I think that is what Paulo needs. I think if Lucy can get over the massive neediness then this relationship would be awesome

P.S. I understand what’s going On Taeshi…heck I am always behind on stuff and get crap from my advisor. I do not know how many times I have to tell him that I stay up late trying to finish things and he just needs to calm the hell down

Taeshi, I love you. You webcomic is amazing. You’re usually very prompt and organized (at least from what I can tell) but the late-ish updates are kind of taking over. I hope it’s just a glitch in the website or something, because if you need a break, just tell people, and most people will support the fact that you have a life. :)

it pains me to know some people are so impatient and incapable of considering that Taeshi will not always be able to keep everything on the perfect schedule she has kept for us for the past year or so.

Keeping up a webcomic is hard enough, and now she’s making personal sketches as well as sending loyal fans 600 freakin page books that she worked hard on.

Give her some damn slack for being so awsome to us, if you want to troll or be annoying 4chan is over there.

I find it rather funny that Lucy took Paulo’s actions as something that would be requiring her to inform him he got a girlfriend. He simply trying to help a friend but then again the girl has become rather defensive recently…. :nope:

Truth be told, be glad you ain’t waiting on this like a freakin’ Zero Punctuation vid, you’d not know when a new one worth watching arrives.

I’ll wait patiently, but I’ll be impatient for not being able to order a sketchbook -.-

I so freakin’ want one, just for the sake of -having- something worth reading, unlike all the other 500 webcomics, this one actually has a story worth noting, reading and thinking through… both comical and dramatic… meh. Just my 2 cents.

I don’t get what the big deal is about how some people freak out just cos the updates aren’t exactly at midnight. I think we’re extremely lucky to get updates on the days they say they update. Look at a bunch of other webcomics that say they’ll update on certain days but don’t and when they finally do two months later they don’t even give any explanation as to why. So chill out people, Taeshi has other things to do other than update a webcomic about fictional talking cats with the occasional dog.

Anyways onto my comment about the comic so I don’t get banned :D

Hmm…Lucy seems to be acting a little bit too strange to be just sick. So what am I saying? I still think she’s drunk. Or in heat. xD

ToraPandoraPGS July 15, 2011, 1:07 PM EST.

Comment ID #172735

Am I the only one who’s been reading this comic from the beginning? Lucy is a stubborn girl who doesn’t know how to deal with people in a kind manner. She’s too afraid to open up. Right now she’s vulnerable and she doesn’t want to be helped because she’s vulnerable. (btw, why in the *insert curse word here* would she be drunk? When was the last time she guzzled down some alcohol for any reason? Pay attention to the characters already).

Spoken for means that they’re taken. Meaning that they’re dating, engaged or married (involved with someone romantically and commites). Is that no longer a common phrase or is it just an American thing? O3o

@Lyssa Actually, I think the only people that had alcohol were Mike, with those little alcohol candy things in a bar, in that chapter where they were lost, and Paulo, when he went to that club with Jessica as part of her master plan to tick off Tess. It worked, by the way.

@Lyssa I’m just assuming she’s drunk one because I’m a jerkass and two because well look she’s been hanging around with FF Cat, who is obviously plotting something if you remember back in the beginning of Pillow Talk. What it is we don’t know yet, but hopefully it will be revealed within the next couple of chapters.
I do believe this chapter will AT LEAST have PauloxLucy in it, which will make my inner fangirl have complex emotions as I always do about PauloxLucy :l
