I see it now, Paulo is starting to avoid everything Lucy. Will Paulo break up with Jazz? Is Paulo starting to feel more for Lucy now? Maybe. Just maybe.

I’m starting to agree with the Lucy x Paulo shippers about him needing to break up with Jasmine.

But it’s not because I dislike Jasmine. I like her. She’s rather nice, and she’s been good to Paulo. Sweet Girl; doesn’t deserve to be caught up in all the drama, and hopefully won’t be.

Paulo needs to be fair to her, about his feelings toward Lucy. Jasmine’s offering him the same amount of affection Lucy would offer him. She deserved to be treated straight up. But if Paulo’s attention is that unfocused off of her, then he should be straight with her about it. They still make good friends, but it’s painfully obvious who Paulo actually loves.

Taeshi, Jas’ face looks… different. I like her the best in the top two and bottom two. The ones in the middle seem… off.

Jazz is not upset, she just thinks Paulo is acting kinda strange all of the sudden. I think Paulo is apologizing, because he realizes that he’s acting weird.
What a difficult position Paulo has placed himself in. It’s clear that he still has feelings for Lucy, but the awkward part of it all, is that he’s in a relationship with Jazz, who is a very nice girl (I see no reason to begrudge her).
This is one of those “difficult calls” where everyone isn’t probably going to come out of this happy, but that’s part of life. Only in movies, stories, and comics can everything pan out in an idealistically and beautiful manner.
Tis the difference between “reality” and “fantasy”.

………scarves………either I’m reading into this to far or Pualo has just connected Mike to something being wrong with Lucy

Also why doesn’t Pualo just tell Jazz that he went to Lucy’s house to give her some cake and that something seemed the matter, she’d understand, she’s smart and a nice girl

If anything she’d want to find out about Lucy as much as Pualo

I really love Jaz but I feel their relationship isn’t working out and I think it’s time Paulo broke it off, he’s just leading her along and its unfair to her. I hope even if it ends between them that we still see more of Jaz, shes a lovely design and sweet character. It seems like more of a friendship really, even when Paulo tries to be sweet theres a strange tension in the air, it all seems kinda awkward.

Kit May 11, 2012, 1:18 AM EST.

Comment ID #216242

Look, Jazz was mad, then he said scarves when he realized it. She’s nice, and sweet, but I really do think she’s a little jealous of Lucy, most girls are. She likes Paulo because he treats her so great, but she can still realize what’s going on there. Like y’all are saying, she’s smart.
And is it just me, but I’ve been thinking about it since It came out, but “At Loose Ends” page 20, Jazz could be dancing, but it looks kind of like she’s thinking “YES! Lucy’s not here!” I do that with my fist when I’m having a “YES” moment.

She realizes it, and you can see some understanding there, their relationship is more like a brother sister thing anyway, in that it seems like they genuinely care for each other, but come on, she’s a kid. Recall Paulo felt weird about David suggesting he date Daisy because “She’s just a kid” even though she’s older than Lucy. It’s that innocence, and his protective nature. Correct me if I’m wrong, but they’ve never even kissed, right? And there’s no way she’d put out while they are just dating assuming it lasts as something more.
No matter what, I’m sure they’ll be friends and Paulo will always protect her, like he does Lucy, Daisy, Tess, ect. It’s how he is.
Oh, and btw, PauloxLucy forever! Because he’s a great guy, and I’m like Lucy in reality and Paulo is like the guy I’m with now, 5 years and we’re so happy, if I hadn’t ended up with him, I’d probably be dead by my own hand years ago.

With Paulos constant inner struggles when Lucy becomes a topic of his thoughts makes me believe firmly that this relationship with Jazz will not last. I can only hope that they still remain good friends, since Jazz is so <3 and one of my fave chars.

Fenfir May 11, 2012, 2:26 AM EST.

Comment ID #216249

Okay, i gotta ask, why does everyone assume that because Paulo has what if scenarios in his head, that his relationship with jazzy won’t last. Every male goes through that what if stage at some point in their relationships, it’s perfectly normal. What matters is how you respond to it, do you interpret in an over reaction and go to the all is lost solution or do you see it for what it is? As far as i’ve seen Paulo’s having a perfectly natural reaction and response, he acknowledges the what if scenario but he understands he’s in a relationship with another and that’s where his head should be. Any other responses i’m seeing are more stemmed from concern for a friend, not a hope for a romantic relationship.

And as another commenter posted a while back, Jazmine has had a lot of oppurtunities to get jealous and hasn’t. The fact is that Jazmine is a smart girl and understands where paulo stands with lucy.

yes, “bitchin” indeed… three snowballs with two sticks for arms, pieces of coal and a carrot making up the face.

never seen a snowman quite like that, before. :/

why doesn’t paulo just come right out and say it to her face, instead of lying to jazmine every god damn second of every day… “jazmine, i don’t love you, i’m still in love with a worthless bitch who hates me, and once damaged my testicles beyond repair, rendering me unable to have children”.

also, strider… ********, no decent person would think about cheating on their partner… you know what my “what if” scenarios are?

the only one i think of is… what if i snap one day, and kill everyone i hate? should be a fun day.

I can’t wait to see what is revealed in this chapter! Will it be Paulo’s persisting crush, Mike’s attack, or maybe even something more?

Personally i think an example of quarter-assed reasoning would be to believe that all guys are perfect robots who are incapable of wondering what could happen, just look below your previous comment for an example of that. Only a child, or someone of similar intellect, would believe that a guy’s mind is a flawless thing that never wanders to what is and what could have been. As for tweenlight, yeah, i don’t think paulo is acting like any of the idiots from that series, he’s just acting human or as human as an anthropomorphic cat creature could.

On a sidenote, while i hate twilight, my major hatred stems from the fact it butchers the mythology of vampires (i.e. vampires DON’T SPARKLE). Stella and Edward being ******** seems to me to be pretty much par for the course of modern society.

Comment ID #216282

I’m surprised nobody has made a connection between what Tess went through when she broke it off with Paulo before and what he’s going through now. I mean, it’s a pretty similar scenario if you take Lucy out the picture. Younger and older. I imagine that’s somewhat relevant as well. Lucy, of course, only adds to the dilemma. Frankly, I find it hard to assess who Paulo loves. Minus the blushing and stuff, which could simply be counted as lust or the likes, Paulo treats Lucy as he would treat Daisy, Jazz and Tess if they were in a situation like that. As much as he tried to hide it and deny it, he’s a sweet guy. I also have my doubts that he will end it with Jazz, and if their relationship comes to nothing, it’s because they faded out of romantic territory and into friendship. Er… Friendzoned, if you will.

Not trying to crush anyone’s ships here, just saying that he’s just… Paulo.

Also, PauloxDavid forever v-v

I found myself in a similar position at one point, and decided it better to call it off; not because I preferred one over the other, but rather because I knew it wouldn’t be fair to anyone if I decided to let myself have two people on my mind. All in all, lots of unhappiness, but I think (and still genuinely do so) that it was for the better.

Basicly Jazzimine and Paulo have complimenting persinalities, as you can see in the halloween and christmas comics (interestingly two holiday comics… hmmmmm….).

I write this because i want others to know that you “my good sir” are just a parasite that likes trolling others even though you don’t even have anything good to say to us and even though we don’t care at all..

I prefer Jazz and Paulo as bff. They’re more fit as bros rather than lovers.
And I’m not saying that cause I think Paulo fits better with Luce (I’m a AuggiexLuce shipper prior anyhow), but it’s obvious that Paulo has strong feelings for Luce. I don’t think Jazz awakens such feelings within Paulo as Luce does.

And so far, Jazz and Paulo have been more like best friends from the beginning in my opinion.

Honestly, that scowl she gives him in panel 3 could be because of the mention of ribbons, but also could be because of the way he spaced out and mumbled ‘Ribbons’, and than shouted ‘Scarves’ right after.

I tend to scowl at people spazzing out, too.

Also, the look she gave -immediately- after him touching her shoulder was sort sort of cute & Shy.

I sort of feel that what ensued with her staring, was more or less her understanding that he’s being really awkward, offish, and mildly lame.

Which is also why he’s apologizing. She’s a smart cookie, I imagine she can pick up when he’s laying it on thick.

Though it doesn’t overwrite the fact that there’s a certain degree of sincerity in his actions (just sort of..exaggerated by his desire to appear normal).

@derp: i’m just saying if she all of a sudden kissed him in this chapter, suddenly with no warning it would make for an interesting pannel or plot choices regarding paulo. U know where u have a crush but re relise how good u realy got it. Jazzy is a smart written character, and is the kind of person paulo needed in his life because lets face it all the other girls had kinda ganged up on him at one point and he just wanted to take it slow.

My thoughts: i realy do feel like this couple has been in limbo for to long. I mean not even a kiss, or more sighns of effection. If u asked paulo do u wann bang jazzy on ask roseville high i’m shure u’d get a interesting remark. Its the big brother little sister thing they got going on. I’m shure jazzy realy does like paulo, but she’s got the state of mine of going with the flow. If there were more storys of her realy putting her self out there and makeing paulo have to struggle even more with his crush on lucy, i think that would make for good storys. Heck, let things go to **** between then and have her pull a knives from scott pillgrim and do everything to get him back, heck that be a friggin awsome twist! XD I think somethings going to happen between them, and soon, and it will define there relationship. Jazzys even joked about how she thinks paulo loves daisy………..And what is that about? Ya there old friends, but they nv look at eachother that way, if anything there the bigger brother sister role. Grrr love 8-D

Aww! I’m sure you’ve decided the outcome of who Lucy will end up with, but I really hope it will be Paulo. In the beginning I was definitely not a fan of his, but I’ve grown to like him more and more as the series progressed. So, hopefully him and Lucy will end up together! ^_^

I just started reading your comic last week and I’m already up to here, I have to say this comic is really great! Everything is just so exciting to read, you’re a great artist as well.

I honestly think that Paulo and Lucy should be together. Not that I don’t like Jazz! I like Jazz a lot! But it just seems that Paulo has helped Lucy through some things that are very emotional. It seems that Paulo really wants to be with Lucy more than Jazz, not saying he doesn’t like her.

Keep up the great work with the comic!

Anyone ever think that Paulo already dumped Jazzy and they went out to do something fun to get over hard feelings?Then he forget that the broke up when he put his hand on her shoulder?

Paulo has placed himself in one heck of an awkward position. he obviously still loves Lucy but is currently in a relationship with Jasmine. the idealistic side of me wants everyone to have a happy ending in this drama but the cynical side of me knows that that will be almost impossible to achieve. the longer i read this web comic the more i find the more i find the name to be appropriate.

Correct shipping: Paulo and Lucy, Mike and Daisy, Abbey and Jasmine. Last one might by a little weird…

ok im just gonna say it……..i want Lucy and Mike to be a couple, they seem like they would be together perfectly i mean they argue then love each other and they had such a part of that for a while but then Mike just had to worry about the girl of his first crush from and when he was a kid, and then crap just had to settle in. Lucy tries to show how much she does love him but then he goes and calls her some parasite and she doesnt deserve anything, and im upset about that lol, and one more comment not related to Lucy and Mike…i wish BCB would make more pages at a time than only a few or very little over a long period but i understand.

I just noticed, Jasmine… is… … … SO CUTE! :3 <3 lol, but ya anyways in the beginning I was a MikexLucy and after what Mike did I was like… what a d*** but something in the back of my mind still wanted MikexLucy, I used to not like Paulo at all I thought he was a d***** at first but Paulo has really changed and matured and I think that I will give Paulo a shot, Paulo I think you will come to the right conclusion. (The conclusion I think would be right is Paulo stays with Jasmine, Lucy need to find a new person to love, a new character maybe? :3, Mike can go play with himself while waiting for his “girlfriend”, and ya everyone else just pair up and get to find someone you like lol)

Jazzy seems really reluctant to accept affection from Paulo.

I hope she gets over that.

Ribbons and scarves… I see what you did there!
I was always a Lucy x Paulo shipper, so I’m kind of happy to see that Paulo’s realizing how he feels about her. But also, I wonder how Jasmine will react to this? I sense another plot….
