Comment ID #216516

; A; Oh Paulo, you poor thing. Knowing Lucy, she’s only ever said anything about her friends when she has something to complain about, Paulo obviously being one of them. And so her family never hears the good things, only the bad ‘cause she’s venting. xD

And now it’s all coming back to bite Paulo in the ***. e_e Jordan probably thinks Paulo is the one that really ****ed Lucy ovar. . __. Sad pandas for everyone here…

Lucy, I know you’re in a state right now, but we could use your snarkyness right now to get Paulo inside…if you even wanna see him of course. T_T

@Qsandas: Of course we all know him as that Paulo (or at least we all SHOULD know him as that Paulo) but like I said earlier, Lucy probably only ever mentioned him when she had something to vent about, and apparently Jordan seems to be the one who gets to hear all about how “horrible” Paulo is to Lucy, even though I’m positive she doesn’t feel that way about him all the time. Just when he does stupid things.

It’s really sad actually. :/

Paulo got shot down like spitfire.
if lucy’s older brother were home, he’d probably be beating Paulo with a metal baton….
Though that would be interesting, it would be a critical hit to all…
Anyways… Has mike seen sandy yet… Or is that happening as this chapter unfolds???
Cuz at the christmas party a chapter back… Mike said that he would be seeing sandy tommorow….
So… Has he already seen her?
Or otherwise, that would mean abbey is finding out about his mom while this is happening to paulo…
Which means sandy is gonna be in the next chapter….
Oh mah grod….
The mythical sandy…
She cometh
unless her plane crashes… XD

Maybe he’ll try throw some pebbles at her window. Knowing his luck in this chapter though, he probably hits the wrong window resulting some awkwardness or Jordan charges in again before Paulo manages to talk to Lucy.

Comment ID #216567

Is it just me, or dose Lucy only really get friendly and nice to Paulo when she’s in pain of the idea of Mike being out of her life forever or distressed?

Cause if her brother’s only heard the bad things when she was fine, then it raises the question if she says anything nice about her other firends when she’s not depressed.

P.S. I still can’t belive Paulo did not think/know Mike was the problem from the start!

Haha, thus paulo’s past comes to bite him in the a$$. But we have 6 pages left of this chapter, so we’ll either have him pondering for 6 pages or Paulo’s gonna go solid snake and infiltrate the house. I’m voting for option two just purely for the potential comedy, but i can’t believe people are actually attacking Jordan. Jordan has every right to suspect Paulo, especially if he has bad info. At this point he’s doing what a good brother is supposed to do, lucy’s pretty screwed up right now so Jordan is attacking anyone who could be a threat. IMHO, Go Jordan.

@derp all I’m saying is that when Paulo tries to do something right, he gets shot down and/or people make it really hard for him. Jordan doesn’t know any of this and if I was Paulo I wouldn’t take any of his shut and walk right by him to talk to Lucy. Little kids who think they are hot **** when you’re trying to do something right are the worst.

paulo is trash, anyone who likes him is destined to have a terrible life, and their relationships will always fail, sooner or later.

i think it is pretty obvious lucy STILL likes mike more than paulo despite what mike has done, because if she hated him, she’d likely have told her brother by now… who would’ve proceeded to hunt down and kill mike.

goes to show you how much worse than mike paulo is.

Comment ID #216588

@Death of Ink: I don’t think that you are too far off, sir.

Remember, Lucy doesn’t really open up to many people, safe for her pets. So it isn’t a surprise that when she talks to other members of her family (Jordan, Sam, etc) about her friends, they hear Lucy like how we would normally hear her, or how her friends would normally hear her: Full on snark and (for the most part) accentuating the negative about peeps.

Which brings me to wonder why people are hating on Jordan. All Jordan has heard of Paulo are the…questionable…things that he’s done in the past, so is it really a surprise that he’s not letting Paulo in? I can’t blame him, really; he’s looking out for his younger sis when she is NOT in the best of places atm.

Paulo a good friend in that he is really is trying to do what is right and talk to Lucy about what’s up, but his reputation as a lech has REALLY caught up with him.

from the previous page:
i already fought that fight with Boh and as you can see Boh is still fighting.

what? when?!

You know who had it tough? Abbey. His mom was lamped, and kid witnessed it. And yes, this is a dude that had it tough and have issues. But oh lookie, lookie, he is trying to do something with that. Live like normal decent person.

there’s a reason why abbey couldn’t become a bad person: he didn’t want to be like his father and so hates abuses. he cannot abuse people in any way (he only has a bad temper, but he always has good intentions).
I wouldn’t exclude that augustus may be an orphan. did you see his bedroom in “askbcb”? and also, do you remember how degraded the town in which he lives is? it’s one of those places in which, if you aren’t with the bullies, you have good chances of being oppressed by them every day. and if you join them, with time you absorb their manners, inevitably.

lastly, you shouldn’t attack the character.
taeshi is the only one who knows exactly how the character is, so if she makes him look like a good guy (or at least, a “not that bad” guy), the reasons can be two:
- she knows exactly what she’s doing and we will see in the future how he could change like this;
- she doesn’t make him behave realistically, so she’s failing with him.

so, for example if you think his behavior is strange (at first he’s a manipulating bad guy, then he gives important advices to “his enemies”), then probably you should say “taeshi, I don’t think he behaves realistically\I don’t see how he can be a good guy, seeing what he did in the past”, not “he should be impaled”.

I hope I made clear what I think.

If memory serves, back during the december chapter. it was a small dispute (only a few comments long) and honestly i don’t remember what started it. I think i said something about him being manipulative (although i think i used “stronger” terminology) and it spiralled from there.

to bad for Paulo his idiot moves he’s done in the past are one of the things that is keeping him from convincing Jordan to let him in. to bad Jordan doesn’t know about the good things Paulo has done no mater how few, then again Jordan probably only knows about Paulo from Lucy’s complaints and i have my doubts she would complain about most of his good deeds. i also find this to be a good example for how the things you’ve done in the past can come back to bite you in the ***.
i like how you find all the holes in other people’s arguments and come up with strong counter argument it is very interesting.

Poor Paulo, but I’m really not surprised. I don’t take Lucy as the type of person who goes on rambling about all the happy-sappy goings between her and her friends.

Especially if you consider a lot of the crazy situations they’ve all been through. In Paulo’s case for example these are the first two that come to mind:
1. Lucy going to school while being extremely sick and having to be practically saved by him, and 2. the time where she tried to throw herself at him in order to get over her emoness for Mike.
Yeah… those are probably not the sorta thing you’ll share with your family, even if your friend’s loyalty really did shine through.

Now complaining about your friend’s stupidities… that is something you can always share. lol So yeah, I think it makes sense that this would happen. Maybe Paulo will learn a lesson from all this… that maybe he should worry a bit more about his reputation since you never know who might catch wind of it.

Learn from this Paulo! Learn from thiiiiiis!

Please re-read December, because after someone who is supposed to be your oldest and best friend says that they hate you and that none of your friends will stick with you after he leaves (by the way she believes it to be true) how do you think she’s going to feel & react?

@ Ven: just so you know, Lucy is the youngest in her family, Jordan is the middle child. I do however understand how you feel about Paulo being concerned & do something nice, but you do have to remember Paulo wasn’t invited in and her brother obviously knows that SOMEONE has hurt his sister to the point that she has secluded herself in her room.

@ Sen: Yes but Jordan wont even listen to any sort of explanation.

It is so cute that she has such a protective younger brother! He cares so much for her that it makes you understand where he is coming from. So nice!

Well, at least now we know Lucy’s brother isn’t being shallow by not letting Paulo in. If MY sister kept complaining about a guy being a pervert/womanizer who constantly hit on her, I wouldn’t let him in my house so he could see her. Especialy not when she’s in such a bad mood that I feel like she’s about to commit suicide at any moment.

No reason for Lucy was kind of a reason for Paulo. He felt rejected and besides, Jess seduced him. Also the thing with Rachel was kind of cute.

As far as him doing that right after him and Lucy had kind of a moment, well….again I blame Jess and David for getting him away from Lucy in the first place. lol

Christ Jordan, just let him in to talk to Lucy, he did save her multiple times and pretty much has been the only one that’s truly watched her back…. 8-D……that came out wrong….

OOOH! Paulo got burned by Lucy’s brother! Poor Paulo! XD I sort of don’t blame Lucy for calling Paulo those insulting names and junk.. :/ I wonder why she’s so upset though, if it’s because Paulo slept with 2 different girls and is now dating Jasmine or Mike dating Sandy, i’m going to knock some sense into them..Btw, i’m not a big LucyxMike fan..Hope that i won’t get hurt by MikexLucy fans :x I’m just expressing my feelings.

Paulo needs to make better first impressions on people if he expects to get through to them.

wait up…
so i didn’t read the chapters that are apparently “pay only” chapters. Is there something in there that makes paolo non-arbitrarily a terrible person? Or is the hate for paolo from people like thanatos just hot-blooded shipping-based nerd-raging?

He’s a flirt, but i’d take that over the angst kids any day.

@Ven: I agree Jordan should give Paulo a chance, but he seems to be overprotective and distrustful by nature. remember the flashback where Mike kissed Lucy in her room? as they were going upstairs it was her brother that was more upset/concerned about it than their own mother.

I think you’re confusing status with reputation. Paulo was worried about his status. He wanted to be the cool guy. He decided the best way to do this was through getting with as many girls as possible… which shows he obviously didn’t put much thought into his reputation. He only cared about being the cool guy again. His status.

(A reputation reflects on your status… but your status doesn’t always reflect your reputation.)

I mean Paulo tries when he is aroind lucy u have to remember that, but lucy is kind of suicydely depressed right now so of course she will say all the bad things about her friends.

Oh by the what does lucy’s dad look like i’ve never seen him

Oh god, imagine if it was Sam instead.

I guess friends like to say all the bad things about each other to family members and others sometimes. But they keep all the good qualities about friends to themselves. <3

Puahahah, on another note, I really like how Jordan(?) is so protective of Lucy. xD Even if he’s just tired of her angst, he seems to care enough either way. :]

i still wonder if mike knows about the full effect of what he said. i doubt he meant to cause this much damage but these thoughts may just be blind optimism on my part i don’t know.

“Took her in when the guy she’s upset about now rejected her” Paulo?
“Talked her down from making a huge mistake that night” Paulo?
“Saved her when she was drowning in the stream” Paulo?
“AU 3-year boyfriend” Paulo?
Yeah, you’re not welcome here. *Slams door*
