That reaction tells me she lied, but doesn’t think it a big deal anyway so just is waiting to tell him or something. I’m guessing the rest of this chapter is his panicked antics until Rachel pops in magically to save the day with the truth.

Now I’m sure that Rachel is just messing with him. He’s freaking out and she’s laughing about it… yep, they didn’t do anything last night.

Paulo it would be wise to stop yelling at the really nice girl that just wants to help. Seriously, I know you are freaking out, but your little outburst aren’t helping.

Something is off about Daisy… she looks… tired. Actually that makes sense given the recent circumstances.

Oh no, Rachel’s not playing a joke. They definitely did it. She’s laughing because of how big of a deal he’s making of it when to her, it’s not a big deal at all and his naivety is adorable to her.

I mean really. Anyone who has ever had sex would know you can SMELL the scent of it on you afterward. Cats and dogs have better senses than people, so it doesn’t make sense he can’t smell it or not smell it on himself.

Tired of Lucy July 11, 2013, 4:02 PM EST.

Comment ID #253422

Rachel didn’t lie, she’s just used to being sexually active and thinks Paulo is silly for freaking out.
Anyway, lots of people feel bad for Daisy, but she is being really self-sensitive. She doesn’t realize that Paulo is a wreck, but isn’t really thinking much about it either. When she asked how he was holding up, his response was answer enough. Usually Daisy is good at not letting her amygdala get in the way, but this time she was in the wrong, being a wonderful and smart person for the most.
I hope Daisy stops to listen to Paulo, or another character might go on my dislike list. First Augustus, then the Mike date, and now a Paulo alienation? Her oldest friend? At least she will be with her Mikie on my mental hate post it.

From the look on Rachel’s face (her breaking down in giggles it looks like), I don’t actually believe they did it. Besides, have you ever tried to get a stiffy while depressed? It doesn’t work well. Pity sex rarely works when the guy is in an emotional pit.

Comment ID #253425

i get this tingly feeling that maybe… JUST MAYBE… Rachel managed to not actually have sex with Paulo… I really hope that’s that case, anyway… I will be sad if it turns out Rachel actually did have sex with Paulo since i had hoped when i saw the page before this one that it wasn’t true and now i have what might be partial confirmation on my hope… Rachel, if you tell Paulo you had sex when you really didn’t.. I will be severely dissapointed in your character. PLEASE just tell Paulo you didn’t, ESPECIALLY if you actually did. Please.

lmao, “So, yelling at me is the new normal?”
Everyone does seem to be yelling at her a lot lately, poor ol’Daisy.
What’s even funnier is that Daisy randomly came out of nowhere and was all like “How ya holdin’ up?”
I’d get a little spooked too, but I wouldn’t yell (most likely because I didn’t get out of bed with a chick I didn’t remember doing anything with, when I decided to make a commitment to another chick, who’s gone stone cold and no one knows what happened to her yet).
Rach is a funny girl. I like her so far in this chapter, how she bucked up Paulo with the one thing that’ll buck up about any man, and let it slide real easy like instead of adding gas to the flame (which characters in BCB seem really fond of doing).
Only two pages in and I really like this chapter so far. Paulo is still really tense, emotional, dramatic, ect, but Rach and Daisy seem to lighten it up, instead of just tightening it up.
Keep up the good pages, creator person.

Comment ID #253456

@Geeflakes: Daisy isn’t being self-centred here on purpose. She came to ask how Paulo was and then he seemed to freak out and shout at her for no reason. She’s not happy after Lucy leaving so she’s feeling sensitive right now as a lot of people would.

@Masonery: Daisy knows Paulo is kinda emotional at the moment, hence why she is asking how he is holding up, but to be honest, they have BOTH lost Lucy so Daisy is of course feeling sensitive and not as calm as normal. She’s not in the wrong for feeling upset about him shouting basically right in her face about something that doesn’t even seem to make sense from her point of view. She may be being a bit passive-aggressive about it but she’s still getting over the loss of Lucy too so it is kind of expected that peoples’ emotions are riled up and people will be feeling snippy/vulnerable/easily hurt.

I love how Daisy is just so done with him

Vega July 12, 2013, 12:27 AM EST.

Comment ID #253470

Why are people saying Daisy is being self-centered? As far as I can tell, she’s not angry at him for yelling at her (again, when she was just being concerned for him). She hasn’t burst into tears or yelled back or called him a jerkity jerk jerk. All she’s done is essentially say, “Okay, I get that you’re upset, but I don’t appreciate being yelled at. Come talk to me when you’ve calmed down (and we can actually talk, instead of you exploding in my face).”

To me, that seems like both setting a healthy boundary and being a good friend. No matter how bad your day has been, it’s never okay to take it out on other people. Displacement aggression is understandable, but not acceptable.

And other people shouldn’t be expected to put up with it for the sake of being “a good friend.” It doesn’t matter what I’m going through, I would never require my friends to hang out with me if I’m being verbally abusive. (“I’m in a terrible mood and I’m going to scream at you whenever you say anything, but if you’re really my friend you’ll stick around anyway.” Now, THAT’s self-centered.)

But, since Daisy is a good friend, I expect that she’ll brush it off and forgive Paulo as soon as he makes it clear that he didn’t mean to take it out on her. And then there will be the universal balm for heartbreak: ice cream.

Something tells me that Rachel and Paulo didn’t actually do it, but that she’s messing with him. Then again, I could be wrong. :P

REVERSE “DID WE DO IT LAST NIGHT?”. Lucy thought she did something with Paulo when she went to his place, and now he thinks he and Rachel did something!

Off topic!
So, since the boy in my life who is like my Mike just broke up with his Sandy, do you think BCB Mikey is going to have some troubles with Sandy soon? o:

God I hope so, that would be so great and strengthen the associations I have with this comic that make me love it so much :3

Poor paulo *cries* You are such a sweetie paulo please don’t be sad, and try not to do silly things with Rach anymore xD

I probably looked too much into this, but I do have some time to kill this morning, so I’ll just say it…

First, Paulo did not “yell” at Daisy: he shouted in surprise. You can clearly tell by the guy’s shocked face that he was taken by surprise when Daisy randomly showed-up while he was deep in his own thoughts. He was shocked and shouted out the first thing that came into his mind. I wouldn’t be surprised if he didn’t even know it was Daisy talking to him till he turned around and looked at her. So this isn’t displaced anger, or whatever, that he’s talking out on her. He isn’t even angry, at least not as much as he is freaked out, upset, and probably confused. (At least his expression doesn’t come off as him being angry at himself.)

Also, I’m not surprised at Daisy’s reaction. She is really whinny, so It’s not shocking she’d react in such a manner and turn Paulo’s freaked-outness (that’s totally not a word but lets pretend it is) as a personal affront. So again, I’m not surprised she’d react like that.

The reason I take Paulo’s side on this (trying to not be bias since I already just dislike Daisy) is that he didn’t exactly verbally attack her. He just shouted “nothing happened.” Unlike the time at Lucy’s house, this was just a random neutral comment, so it’s not like he said anything hurtful to her.

What makes Daisy “wrong” here is not so much that she reacted, as how she reacted: she made it personal and made herself into a victim. Don’t get me wrong, I can understand not wanting your friend to randomly shout things at you. But personally, If I randomly came up to my friend and she/he randomly yelled out, “Nothing happened” I wouldn’t take it personally, I’d be like “Oookay what did you do?”

To me, the fact that Daisy took this personally and turned a totally neutral comment into a personal attack, shows that she’s holding a bit of a grudge against Paulo for yelling at her the other day, and all I can say to that is get over it. She could see her friend was obviously upset, so she needs to stop being a whinny baby for once in her life, and just get over it.

To everyone thinking Rachel lied… I’m pretty sure she is laughing at Paulo’s reaction. As in, ‘oh he’s so cute, in a few days he’s gonna see that this is totally not a big deal :P

Completely agree.
I to totally fine to love some characters more than others, but I’ve noticed some characters have all their flaws whitewashed and others can’t do anything without somebody in the comments making them bad for it.
Lucy punches her best friend in the face and gives him a nosebleed? Lol go Lucy! Lucy insults her best friend on a daily basis? Poor girl, she was ignored in kindergarten, it’s totally understandable that she’d be a bitch to everyone for the next ten years because of it. Paulo insults Mike after he tries to genuinely support him? Lol go Paulo! How funny.
Mike snaps after 10 years of constant abuse? What a jerk!
Daisy walks away after being yelled at twice by one of her best friends of no reason? Wow what a self-centred person! *rolls eyes*

Her expression says “we didn’t actually have sex, you idiot.”

I really want this chapter to end with Paulo waking up in Daisy’s bed and being all “Dammit, not again!” XD

I can’t believe i’m saying this, but i’m jealous of Rachel for having a nicer room than mine. :unsure: And Paulo sure doesn’t know how to contain his nerves when he feels guilty… ._. I wonder who he’s going to end up with if Veronica/Taeshi ends up making a spin-off of the comic with the characters’ kids..(That kind of sounds cool if she did a spin-off of the comic with the characters’ kids starring in it..) Does anyone think Rachel and Paulo didn’t use protection in that one-night stand?(I hope they did.. :unsure:)
