inb4 Thanatos. ‘Nuff said with that.

On another note, D’AWW. PAULO. -heart- He’s so thrilled to hear from her. Good of him not to push her into telling him what’s wrong. <3 And I’m thrilled to see Lucy attempting some civilarity and socialization in some way since Mike’s verbal beat-down. c:

I’m so happy. <3

I should probably be worried. e_e;

I’m am SO pleased Lucy called him! The fact that she can pick up the phone and make conversation and eat cake shows that she’s not a useless broken mess. God, I just squee-ed so hard at this page.. my support for this couple will forever be unrelenting. The thing is, you see how Paulo is making this effort to make her happy? Yes, sure, he has those sexual feelings, but he also cares about her well being, and that is the perfect combination for a relationship <3 In the next few pages, I want Lucy to tell him her issues at the moment, but to also say she’s getting over it, she’s getting better. But hey, who knows what will happen with Taeshi running the show :P hope it’s good though~
I love Paulo’s face in the last panel #^_^# he looks so bashful!

good to see Lucy is still well enough to talk to others. see that did that doesn’t happen nowadays it tears to my eyes. and i cannot feel surprised at seeing it was who called but it takes a lot to surprise me anyway. yet i feel worried for some reason i try to push it away but i have a feeling something bad is going to happen and i hope everyone gets through it unscathed.

Amaya, where’s the popcorn? This is going to be very interesting indeed. And WHY are the phones so freaking small? I’m happy to hear that Lucy is ok-ish (Still sitting int he dark) but hopefully that cake made her feel better. Though poor Paulo seems like he’s going to be very conflicted here int here next few pages, or maybe in a few chapters. Personally I’m looking forward to getting this Lucy chapter squared away so I can maybe see how Mike and Sandy’s day went. I’m hoping that they had a good time.

Dang it I can never get first comment! Anyways…

Well seeing as this is the 2nd last page I think it’s safe to say Jaz and Paulo will still be a couple. I mean the stuff they talk about on this page isn’t that much of a heart changing thing. Even though there is one page left I think it would take more than that to change his mind about staying with Jaz. The conversation clearly shows that was worried about her as a brother and not the in love kind of worried. I think the next page might be about him asking why she didn’t come, and that’s when he finds out about Mike being a royal donkey! If you don’t get that…well…Ask some one. Anyways, I’m relieved now. Nothing dramatic, so it’s all in the clear.

EDIT: As for a fight between Paulo and Mike. I doubt Mike would be a match for Paulo. Mike is to much of a sissy boy.

I think this is what the captain of the Titanic felt like when he was alerted to the iceberg in the ship’s path.

In less eloquent terms; ****’S SAKE.

EDIT: Christ, this fanbase has more collective holes in its memory than a colander with Alzheimer’s.

First, Mike beat the snot out of Alejandro while drunk. Second, he hung, one-armed, from a tiny crumbling ledge of rock. While hanging onto Lucy with the other. Third: He defied gravity it’s ****ing self, and then survived a fall of more than twenty feet into what looked like a seven-foot deep river. Filled with rocks.

So no, I don’t think Paulo’s got a chance in hell of beating Mike in a fight if Mike saw it coming and was ****** off.

Janging on and fighting the way he did are 2 different things. IF Mike had to be drunk to kick someone’s *** then he wouldn’t win with a non-drunk fight. you don’t tend to feel pain while drunk. If if he isn’t drunk more pain, that means more ouching and stopping because of pain.

Comment ID #217445

From the beginning, I’ve always been a Paulo/Lucy fan… :love:
I really hope that they’ll get together, even with Jasmine in the way… besides, it’s quite obvious that Jasmine doesn’t find Paulo to be her one true love… she has the whole “I’m young attitude, I can always find somebody else if it doesn’t work out”…

(lol, I remember being 14 and I felt Super Old! I felt, it was too late for me to find love during then… XD)

Paulo/Jasmine, feel like they’re more friends than a couple. Paulo/Lucy on the other hand, have a deeper connection. I still don’t know why, Lucy’s always after Mike though… I remember in Ask Roseville High she said it was because, “he’s a nice guy”… What In the World?! >w<
There’s heaps of nice guys in the world, and Paulo’s a nice guy too! (besides his lusts), but at least he doesn’t say he actually hates Lucy… Mad Lucy

Even with all the girls Paulo’s been after and with, he still has Lucy in his mind… if only Lucy could see that, Paulo should be the one for her… T=T, Paulo’s able to tolerate her anger swings and wants her happy (especially to see her smile)… it’s obvious though that Mike on the other hand, feels anger/misery with her emotional swings and attitudes (and kind of wants her alone). @=@

lol, but I’m ranting now… >w<

p.s. I can’t wait for the quiz results! 8-D
hope nobody’s holding back on the results because of the furry question… ;3
/me scurries around, and fluffs her tail… *ish a furry*… ^w^

It seems like Lucy finally realizes that she can’t treat her friends poorly anymore and wants to keep the ones she has. Mike did a terrible job at expressing himself, but something did come through. She can’t be petty and bratty anymore.

Comment ID #217450

While it is a big step that Lucy is talking to Paulo here (I honestly think Paulo’s the best guy for Lucy at this point. Then again, I never really believed Mike would become that guy.) we should still be concerned over one fairly important factor:
We’re still not seeing Lucy’s expression to all this.
It is a bit concerning as to whether what she’s speaking to Paulo is true or just falsehood. While we can assume it’s most likely true, I predict the artist will reveal it next.

She is hiding the sadness in her voice but paulo is smart enough to know. But he is doing his duty: make lucy happy.

Comment ID #217452

Going from such a range of heartrending facial expressions at the end of December, to not seeing her face at all in this chapter, is just… arrgh! It makes me more worried about her!

Of course Paulo isn’t getting to see her face to face either, so I guess we’re feeling the same as him here.

It’d be really messed up if Mike ends up being the one shuned…though Lucy probably wouldn’t want Mike, despite what he did, to go through what she went through…would she…?

I like how you make them hold their phones so high due to their ears being higher up than human ears. It looks weird but when you think about it, it’s logical.
Also, I love this page in general. c:
Paulo must be glad to hear from Luce, since she’s a dear friend to him. He must’ve been worried, and I hope Luce realises that so that she won’t believe everything Maishul said.

I like how Taeshi decided to leave Lucy (the main focus of the chapter) until the second last part of the chapter! Mad Literary skillz there
Anyway, the interesting thing will be to see if Lucy finally learns that she doesn’t need Mike, or will she continue her state of existance before, clinging on to Mike.
I think Taeshi knows alll of her viewers will be disappointed to see that Lucy hasn’t learned anything, so I bet she will be a bit different for the better.

That is, unless, Taeshi has beeen abducted by BCB trolling aliens who want to see us moan in sympathy over the fact that Lucy hasn’t learned anything…..

Comment ID #217470

@Derp: Wait…I don’t exactly get the last part. your last part was confusing…not seriously where did you get that? Also about Mike and the power of over the phone love and stuff. Jaz and Paulo have a real face -to-face relationship. I would think that’s better than long distance love. Also calling mom and dad to help? That’s not valid, this is a fight between those two, not Mike Chickening out and calling someone to do his dirty work or solve it verbally. I mean a real fist fight. Also if oyu want to call in people to help, I Paulo probably would have back up form the others, since I doubt they would say” Oh yeah, That Lucy is a real *beep* She deserves to get dumped and become suicidally depressed,” once they found out the truth.

oh Paulo, just break up with Jazz and go get Lucy!
It’s not fair that Jazz is so faithful to you while you’re trying to figure out your feelings towards Lucy :(
Jazz should try and find one who only wants her and does not care for any other girl.. :/

I’m really glad to see that Lucy is talking and eating cake, that’s showing some progress. I found that when I was depressed I’d not be willing to do anything, including eating cake or talk to friends. I think shes making progress and I’m really glad.

It is good to see that she has started her restablization. She’s right about Jordan as he’s overprotective. It is good that she reached out to Paulo when he was giving aid to her. Eventually, everything may be straightend out (or partially).

Gee, I’m really relieved Lucy is making the effort to call Paulo. I was pretty worried about her, it’s been so long since we last saw her doing anything. I actually didn’t expect her to be in state of doing anything right now, so I’m glad to see she already seems to be better.
Eating cake is also a good sign. I also know the feeling of being really depressed, and calling a friend or eating cake would definitely not be possible in that state, so she must at least be a little bit better already.
I didn’t expect her to recover that fast from her huge shock..

Shelvial May 28, 2012, 1:18 PM EST.

Comment ID #217514

Lucy doesn’t seem normal, she just seems tired. I can even imagine her voice having that tired, drawn out tone. Paulo probably doesn’t notice, and is just ecstatic that Lucy actually called him. Lucy’s probably shut down completely, and is only reaching out to her closest person/the only person that got through the house defenses and made it to her door.

My guess is she’ll tell Paulo to forget about her, and that it’s for the best. That he shouldn’t get caught up in her drama. She’ll then proceed to hang up, and Paulo will first be confused, then rage at Mike.

the other white meat May 28, 2012, 1:47 PM EST.

Comment ID #217515

As many people stated or explained, it was sort of good for Mike to lash out at Lucy. Sure, he had overdone it a tad bit, but still. No matter how much Mike gave in the relationship, regardless of how many times he bailed Lucy out and saved her; Lucy would thank him by making it out to be Mike’s fault.

Lucy relies too heavily on others, mostly guys. How is this relevant to the current page? It isn’t, I just wanted to say that. Getting back on the subject at hand, it’s great Lucy is sort of inching out of this shell she seemed to lock herself in since her and Mike’s argument.

It’s even better that Paulo hasn’t neglected to notice Lucy’s absence at all.

I’m not so sure, is this a “D’awwwww” moment, or a “Damn you Paulo, don’t you dare cheat on your GF” moment?

It’s times like this I’m glad Jazz doesn’t have much of a backstory, aside from being a cool freshman Paulo went out with once.
It helps fuel my secret desire for her to disappear.

I almost thought it would be something like Carter with all the comments against this happening, but I’m glad it turned out to be Lucy like I wanted.

Also, I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE that Lucy is showing some more of her relentless spunk. Even when she’s down and kicked, you can’t totally break her. :D (it pains me a little to use the Sandy face here, but hey). Yet I can’t help but notice that Lucy is making this call in the dark. And of course we can’t see her face. Nothing says “heartrendingly sad, but desperately trying” like the lightless bedroom of despair. :(

Turns out the lightbulb in her room has blown, and they don’t have any spares in the house. Cats have good nightvision, so it’s not a big deal. 8-D

ALSO, 3. she is proving mike (or herself) that she can go on and be a better cat and let go from a not-to-good past :)

It doesn’t seem like Lucy is very into Paulo.. I mean he’s all
“Lucy?? Did you like the cake??? Good to hear from you!!”
and she’s all
“yeah it was cool. thanks.”
I’m not convinced she has a thing for him.. Paulo likes her for sure, by why should she like him? She still likes Mike I’m guessing. She’s still getting over him. Paulo, in the end you will have neither of these girls if you cheat on Jazzie so.. Be careful dude!

Since when did Paulo not have a dark bit at the end of his tail?

Discovered this webcomic about 4 nights ago, and pile-drived my way through it with a ravenous appetite for its feel-good relationship melodrama, tastefully done teen angst, and bittersweet romantic cycles. I cannot wait for further updates, keep up the good work! :O > ( Mad Lucy :D or ;_; )

Sigh….. Still ****** at mike…….. At first I liked him now….. Now (this might sound a little weird but I am a nerd and I do this for everything even fictional things) he has to pay for the Crimes he hath committed with either his life or his “girlfriend”. For even though this is a comic I feel like I am a part of it (drags me into it, which in my opinion is great) and I can relate with Lucy (even though I am a guy). She has troubles and I have troubles she relys on others I rely on others to keep me distracted from my depression (another destraction is for me to do my hitlist type of things in comics) and that in itself makes me feel like Lucy’s brother….. (although I am a wolf and she is a cat) *sigh* I hope Lucy gets over this and mike loses his girlfriend and try’s to come crawling back… Then we will see what happens

Oh I just wish it didn’t turn out this way. Sandy is just crazy and poor MikE was mislead. He lived his whole life thinking he was nothing more to Lucy than just a safety blanket. And Lucy is falling into the wrong people. I’ve had my heart broken, but I never went for a rebound. Poor poor Lucy.

Well, I guess Paulo’s “womanizer” days are over, right? Compared to Paulo of some of the earlier strips, he now seems like a totally normal teenage guy. I do wonder how much of this is Jasmine’s influence, or if he (finally) decided to stop acting like an arse.
Anyway, awwwwwww, this is cute. Never been much a PxL shipper, but now I see some potential! #^_^#

Even if Lucy is faking her current mood for Paulo’s benefit, she still knows that Paulo had checked in on her, as opposed to Mike’s claim that even Paulo would leave her. I figure that Lucy is going to be scarred for a long time, but the sharpest of her pain has been dulled now that she knows that she has Paulo.

A thought.
Maybe she’s reacting to what mike said, and is faking it.
Maybe thinking along the lines of “I don’t want to be alone, so I must connect with others.”
If this is true (and I hope to god it’s not) then the next page might be foreshadowing to an event where Lucy might chase away her friends inadvertently. I hope she opens up to the right people. One bad step could send her over the edge..

Lucy is really lucky to have Paulo as a friend at this point. Getting over the crap she went through is hard enough on her own. The fact that Paulo is so persistent with helping her I feel is going to go a long way with her recovery and speed up the processes.

I am actually impressed with Paulo’s ability to read people and willingness to support his friends. He really does put people before himself and seems to try to please everyone.

Suddenly Lucy sounds like she’s gained a whole lot of maturity. And cynicism.


But seriously, Paulo and Lucy should just get it on already. I mean, she’s already eaten his cake.
