Author commentary

Veronica: this is actually the main reason I really wanted to be updating five days a week once we got to this chapter - because I always found those plotlines where a person magically gets an celebrity job - whether it’s TV/movies/singing/etc - corny and unrealistic. It’s the stuff that happened in Degrassi a lot (half of the graduates in that show were either in a band or in a movie or modelling and it was really silly) so this was more of a parody of that.

But having the first page up for a few days could make people think I was actually being serious and like “WOW THAT DOESN’T HAPPEN/DID BCB JUMP THE SHARK” and yeah that doesn’t happen WHAT IS THIS DEGRASSI

hello i’m explaining the joke because i don’t want people to think i would have actually done such a dumb thing WHAT DO YOU TAKE ME FOR

We want to email you some comics!

Join the thousands of BCB fans who look forward to an email of cat drama every Monday morning, and we’ll send you a dozen “Ships Ahoy” comic strips, and one every week after that!

We’ll send a link to the comics you missed, straight away.

She’s absent again? Great.

I guess not everything that has drama and high school students is Degrassi.

Probably a good thing.

A staaaaaar! Seriously though, it’s not like Lucy did accept his offer. That’s not like her at all. She’s probably just sick, late, or way to depressed to come to school. Though she is absent again, so something must be up. I think it probably has something to do with Mike though, it always does.

Lucy: Nope.

Silly talent scout, Lucy has more important things to deal with than becoming famous… she finally has a chance to become friends again with Mike and her family has plans for her as well… they better be good plans that will make her life better and not worse.

Maybe Paulo is on his way to do some good of his own.

I have a feeling that Lucy’s disappearance has something to do with what her family and her had a talk about.

I guess I can get why Lucy would turn it down, it’s not really her style, but if she was successful she could be guaranteed a secure, good life… so even though I’m not fond of the spotlight myself, I would of definitely accepted it if I were her. I know you were trying to make a joke out of it though, just sayin’.

Man, I’m so jealous of my friend who lives in Baltimore getting the chance to meet you guys… I live in Canada, so no go for me. Bummer. I am so super stoked about the idea of daily updates though. I have no idea what kind of super powers will enable you to do this, I mean seriously that’s a lot of work, but mad props to you if you pull it off with as much style as I’ve come to expect from BCB! I have shared this comic with a few of my friends in the past and some have become regular readers, so I’m pretty proud of that. I look forward to updates from this comic more than any other. I wish you mucho luck during 2013 and that your move goes smoothly.

lol, I am loving this chapter.
“I could make you a staaaaar.”
That scout is so desperate, it seems like he needs a star more than Lucy wants to be a star, apparently by her “talk to the butt, because the face don’t care” shrug-off.
Yes, Daisy and Mike do look somewhat disturbed, especially with those extra lines under their eyes. That or someone just kicked them in the gentles and the pain is about to register.
Good to see David strike back again with his obvious, although somehow insightful commentaries. Lucy is missing, but why? Could it be because she did change her mind…or perhaps she slept in? K-12 grade was a bore for me, so I can’t blame her.

paulo, do good? like what… crying and being a baby while someone barks at him, while he watches lucy get raped because he’s too afraid of a sound to save the girl he supposedly loves?

i’m never letting go of that, and i can’t believe so many people still support paulo/lucy when the ****ing weakling can’t even save her, while mike DID save her from being raped and yet people still attack him.

also, paulo going out with a girl who is broken and lifeless, the light in her eyes gone… that’s almost as bad as taking advantage of someone… she isn’t even right in the head… so not only does paulo let lucy nearly get raped cause of a pathetic fear, but he takes advantage of her, as well… he is the exact type of guy you should never date… and yet he has so many supporters… even veronica seems to favor him…

…what does that say about humankind, when they support weaklings unable to protect anyone, and take advantage of others, and do countless other horrible things… simply because they “look attractive” and “act like a player” or whatever it’s called. :/

i’m willing to bet anyone who likes paulo is in a bad relationship without knowing it, or will get into one, or has ****ed up morals, is self-abusive, or just flat out stupid.

i’m sure people will lash out at me for this, because people just can’t handle the truth, it has always been like that, and will continue to be like that for all eternity.

…oh, and i like daisy’s expression, she’s always so cute, i do enjoy this comic so much. :D

If you recall, Paulo pulled Lucy AND Mike from a river that they both would have drowned in. Lets not also forget that just because someone has a crippling fear does not make them a bad person. And my last point on this subject is obviously no one relises how bad off Lucy is in this comic yet or so much more of them would have tried to help her, and even if Paulo does know he may want to help her get better. I feel like your stuck on the old Paulo, forgetting that his character grew a lot.

Thank god this isn’t turning into Degrassi… I would cry :’(

The music producer must be confused
—he thought he could get a new “resource” may create thousands of dollars of capital for both of him and herself, and both of them can attract more supporters.
This may work if she is only a common high school girl,
but she is Lucy, who is a person of strong opinions from time to tome.

Another thing, Paulo and Jasmine are still missing. So does Augustus.

How you like Super Mario and stars! At least this is the second time I saw it.

I do agree with the pathetic fear, but that is all I agree on.

“while mike DID save her from being raped”-Thantos
True. But I ask you this, where is that Mike now?

“what does that say about humankind, when they support weaklings unable to protect anyone”-Thantos
You sound like Charles Darwin.

“obviously no one relises how bad off Lucy is”-Anthony_frost
Basically summarizes BCB after “December”
Summarizes Mike, Volume II and beyond.

Explaining a joke is an equivalent of war crime in world of comedy. HOW COULD YOU?!

I couldn’t agree more. Well except Mike part, since he became a douche in the end. Also: look out with this: “everyone who supports Paulo is in disfunctional relationship”. This sort of argument is a double-edged blade. Since someone might say you support Mike because you’re a player hating wimp, who act’s like mommas boy most of the time only to snap at someone later.

Huh? May 10, 2013, 9:31 AM EST.

Comment ID #245398

The reason is simple:
—Paulo is funny (and cool).
(Of course, Paulo is not a clown, to make readers laugh is not his duty.)

I’m sure he can be much more successful in everything if he can work hard
since he is not stupid but actually very smart,
or he will keep being a mediocre person forever.

A comic with no funny things at all can’t be popular.
For example,
even black coffee is not totally bitter.
—So “BCB” is started with “Bittersweet” neither “Bitter” nor “Sweet”.

Notice the small word “again”… I’m quite sure this is not allowed if this is of no reason, but Lucy isn’t seemed to be a person who is ill often.

Honestly it depends on where this story takes place, if its a place like los angeles or shibuya then I can see been scouted as happening. What kind of city does bcb take place in? It seems like they aren’t exactly a city but live near one? If so then yea that would be weird.

Degrassi looks like it takes place in la, so idk its somewhat plausible that the kids would find jobs in an entertainment industry (just not so damn frequently) I know a lot of my friends who grew up in la and actually started working in the industry from high school

Even if she does become a star, she still has some loose ends to fix. If she did go into the music business, I would trust Zachary more than that guy.

Anyway… It would of been better for having a daily update because of something like this. Although I don’t have any details as to explain somethings (Because my brain isn’t doing any thought processing at the moment), still, it could get the story along and such.

you seem to not want to understand what a trauma is. let’s use wikipedia:

Wikipedia: Psychological_trauma

you should really read other people’s comments. this isn’t the first time I tell you paulo’s fear of barks is a trauma.
also, I can’t believe you wrote “also, paulo going out with a girl who is broken and lifeless, the light in her eyes gone… that’s almost as bad as taking advantage of someone… she isn’t even right in the head… […] he takes advantage of her”. you should be intelligent enough to understand that he doesn’t know lucy is SO broken. I’m sure the lightless eyes are just for us to understand when she’s in that state. I don’t think the characters can notice it.

so please don’t be rational about everything BUT what paulo does. you just act like people that want to believe what is pleasing for them.

@boh… So Paulo for the first part has a trauma so saving her would be way hard to do so you are correct and the whole lucy eyes thing is only for the readers but look at Mike if you look at what happened to him you could sympatise with him but most people don’t because they won’t read into characters while Paulo has dated how many girls and had sex with them for no reason, he has had sex with 2 girls because “He wanted to save is highschool moments.” which is beyond wrong and he acts like his feelings are above everybody else he doesn’t care about lucy other then “She is so hot” and he has so many times harrased her and other girls, he is a complete jerk to many other characters and he dates people while still crushing on somebody and openly breaks up with that said person after he gets abit of hope that its going to work out that is using somebody, to make a person think you love them is wrong to use them as etertainment until somebody else picks you off your feet is wrong. This is all options so you are correct however there is never any perfect character.

“so please don’t be rational about everything BUT what paulo does. you just act like people that want to believe what is pleasing for them.”


That seems to be a common trend around here. Commenters around here do the same thing with mike but barely anyone bashes them for it (save for me and a few others). They apply rational thinking to lucy, but they don’t apply that same thinking for Mike and act like he’s the spawn of satan himself. So, if they get to be irrational with mike, then Thanatos gets to be irrational about Paulo and before you say it’s not the same thing, it is. Both Thanatos and the mike haters are doing the exact same thing. Demonizing one character, applying irrational thinking to support their hate, it’s the same fuggin thing.

I hope your wrong about those eyes. But if you aren’t that would explain why these morons who claim themselves to be her friend are so oblivious.

It is all how you look at a character, Thantos and Mike haters have that right do they not?
Not to start an argument, but I believe you are Lucy hater(or dislike her). If your not, my bad. :( Also two wrongs don’t make a right.
Also by human nature we tend to feel sympathy for those who are in pain or suffering. <~~~That could explain why we have so many Lucy supporters.

I was replying to boh about the idea of telling someone to apply rational thinking to all characters when 60% of the other commenters do the same thing the person you’re jumping on does. Sort of a “pot don’t call the kettle black” kind of thing. I’m not saying for people to not have their own hated characters and viewpoints on characters. I’m just saying don’t preach at someone when they don’t like a character you like but then don’t give the same preaching to others who do the same thing.

lol, you know very well that it’s impossible to make all those haters change their mind. I don’t even try. but sure, if you insist:


Thanatos is a single person, so it’s easier (if he actually reads our comments…. I think not).

@Ms Personality:
I thought that “piece of cake” was made to show that paulo actually cares about lucy, no only her body. he’s also the only person that cared about her when she was absent at tess’ parties.
also I’m pretty sure paulo regretted going out with jessica and rachel.

After starting over at the beginning of volume 2 and reading to this point, Mike’s reactions seem much more reasonable to me now. It’ll be nice if Lucy can get over her depression and make friends with Mike again, and even better still if she can get together with Paulo. But first, let’s see where this chapter takes us. :) I’m looking forward to seeing how this turns out.

I hope Mike won’t try to do too much about it and set in motion again what drove them apart in the first place :V

Sorry life got in they way. So here is part… actually I forgot what part this is.

Mike was red faced. He had no idea why he said that but I did feel good to say it to get it off his chest after so long.
Lucy was stunned. She knew he liked her after what Paulo told her, but she did not expect Mike to say it. She looked at him and saw in his eyes despair, recognition, disbelief ,contemplation, and maybe some hope, but the despair and disbelief were prominent. She just looked stared at him, wondering what to do.
Mike noticed Lucy was staring at him he had no idea what to say, after he yelled at her in December, he always thought he was lying to himself, trying to make himself believe he was in love with Sandy, but he knew he wasn’t, he just wanted what he had in third grade, endless bliss. He though Sandy was the only one who could give him that, but in seventh grade he changed he started thinking of Lucy as more than just his best friend. He started to develop feelings that he had not had since Sandy was with him. But he screwed it all up. After that night he kissed Lucy he regretted it and tried to make up for it by never bringing it up again. But when he snapped in December and yelled at her. The day after he threw up in the morning and told himself it was because he was so angry at Lucy, but deep inside he knew it was not true. When he tried to apologize after Sandy’s show he felt like a *** hole, and was a little relived that Lily pushed him away, he did not think he could apologize to Lucy without breaking down and starting to cry.
Lucy was deep in though it was clear that Mike was as well, with regret in his eyes making them look lifeless and barren, she decide to do something that would tell him page did not hate him.
Mike was mentally beating him self for every mean word he said to Lucy since they met, and he was so deep in thought that he did not noticed Lucy slide closer to him on the bench until she wrapped her arms around him, side ways, and hugged him. He was more surprised when she said, ” I know Mike”. “Was it that obvious”, he replied. “No someone told me” she said. “Paulo ?” Mike asked. “Yea. He though I deserved to know, and I don’t think he thought you would tell me yourself” “Makes sense” “But thank you Mike” “Why?” Mike asked bewildered. “I wanted to hear it from you” “oh” was all Mike could say. Then his phone rang. He pulled it out of his pocket and checked who it was. Paulo had texted him saying
Did you tell her yet?
Mike replied saying
Yes, but did you have to tell her before I could
Paulo replied
Sorry =)
Mike wrote
Its ok.
“Hey Mike let’s go back to your place, we never finished that last mission”
“OK” Mike picked up the rackets and the balls and walked home with Lucy.

A/N: yes I know ****** ending but next chapter will be in next week and sorry for long wait if anyone is even bother in to read this anymore. @TheRealSomeone. I am using a tablet so I can’t do the cut and paste thing to repost all the other parts. If my PC will stop being such an *** and let me type on it with out it crashing then I will personaly go back and cut and paste all of my mini fan fic parts and put them on one really long comment and will do that every moth or something, like just post on giant *** comment.

Ms. Taeshi, I have been a fan of your comic since my freshman year of highscool. When I found it I simply fell in love with the artwork, so I started at the very beginning of bcb. It took me almost two weeks but I did it. From that point on, reading your comic every other day has been the highlights of my highschool career. Now as a senior I will soon depart for college, and I want you to know, that I will continue to follow this wonderful world created by you, this world of love, loss, drama and cats. I sincerely hope your journey to America is safe and without hardship, and I wish you nothing but blessings in your life, please never forget that we your fans, will always love you
Sincerely, Nobody42

… Bing Translate spent tens of seconds working out it…
Well, good writer, How can I find your fanfic?
You have read it for three or four years? But it looks like a first comment of yours.

That is the last part. He posted it on earlier pages of Curtain Fall.

I hope not. Lucy deserves better than a deuchebag who’s been with every other woman around before finally deciding on her. Seriously. He’s a manwhore.

I love this comic almost as much as I love my own works of literature. This and a few other comics have helped me laugh on hard days and currently helping with my pregaduation anxiety. I hope to read this for years to come and I wish the best of luck to you!

@Rylan: Paulo has his fair share of screw ups, but that does not make him a bad person. He just learned how to act around girls from the wrong person: http://www.bittersweetcandybowl.com/c26/p4.html A creepy guy that stays in the shadows, is manipulative, and likes smirking a lot… oh and he likes saying people’s eye color instead of his name. Huh, that creep sounds very familiar, doesn’t he :/. http://www.bittersweetcandybowl.com/c41/p1.html Just a little reminder of who was Paulo’s ‘teacher’ and changed him into who he is now.

Also, contrary to popular belief: Paulo actually does love Lucy… he has show it multiple times. Remember when Paulo saved her life(and Mike’s) when they nearly drowned as kids ( http://www.bittersweetcandybowl.com/c30/p8.html ), remember how Paulo had every opportunity to take advantage of her and decided not to ( http://www.bittersweetcandybowl.com/c53/p12.html ), even in that dream of his(Another Path) he showed he would stay by her side instead of doing what normal jerks would do(here’s a hint: disappear), Paulo even admitted to Tess(his ex-girlfriend) that he loves Lucy a lot more than he loves her( http://www.bittersweetcandybowl.com/c73/p12.html ) or Jasmine (being truthful instead of coming up with some twisted lie). If Paulo is an evil jerk then i’m a coldhearted robot with no emotion(i’m not D:). Paulo is definitely an idiot, but his heart is in the right place.

I’ll admit that Paulo has made a few big mistakes… like talking to David about his love life and then deciding to honor his 8th grade self ( http://www.bittersweetcandybowl.com/c55/p4.html ) -_- and again right before he went on to Jasmine ( http://www.bittersweetcandybowl.com/c55/p18.html ). Oh and guess who Paulo was playing with back in Acapulco( here’s a hint: http://www.bittersweetcandybowl.com/c44/p6.html ). I’m not try to make David look evil. I just want to show what David’s blissful ignorance has done. Please don’t start hating on David, he means well and so does Paulo… people just make mistakes every now and then, some bigger than others.

Far be it from me to roll in and start dumping on your work, but I read your description for this comic. Take it from a fellow writer: if you have to explain the joke, then you need to work on the delivery. What I mean to say is if you do the parody well enough, then there will be no need to explain that it is a parody in the first place. The audience just “gets it”.

DDG, I think you’re right, except we operate under strange conditions where many people look at the current page and judge it out of context. I think the joke is clear if you read it all together.. And that’s basically how BCB is written to read best as.

Teashi i read what u said. U made me feel better. I was sitting here thinking ‘realy there going the band route’ where the group or individual is all of a sudden a rockstar. I’m so happy you were just kidding

@TheRealSomeone. Whoa whoa whoa. Who said this is my last chapter got maybe three more and that’s it. But after that I am probably gonna give up on being an author so even if I somehow get a fan fic account I doubt I will post anything aside from reposting the things I have written here.
