that period makes it look so serious
make sharing notes easier - use evernote: remote sharing without all the drama you can run into at a study party after your friend makes an attempt of committing suicide.
Ha that photo. All the jellies jellies jellies.
So what are the other ppl doing? Helping themselves?

Aww what a cutie. I just hope this doesn’t turn into a big deal and cause problems between Daisy and Abbey. That would suck.

Lookie it’s the days from way back when Daisy had little stubby fur on her face not those curly half-mustaches she has now. Aww.

EDIT: Wow they went through that soda FAST, like nobody’s business. I guess soda did help to some extent.

Why is Abbey so jealous? I mean, yes he has anger issues, but he’s always seemed reasonable and rational. Even when Dais was with Agustus. :question:

Abbey is made out of pure, 100% jelly right about now. :P Including the wobbliness and wavering. Cause that was NOT why he called to Daisy.
Myeh. I knew he wasn’t fond of Paulo and all, but I thought he wouldn’t think he would move in on Daisy like that. And above all else, I would think he would trust Daisy more than THAT…to stay faithful to him, I mean. Perhaps this ‘perfect beta couple’ isn’t as perfect as we thought… D:

I can already tell that Abbey is reading into this much too far, and it will not turn out well. And then Daisy will probably respond with something along the lines of “Okay, let me finish helping Paulo first”, and all hell will break loose.

Can we just take a moment to think about how cute they both are in that picture? Like… wow. Cuteness overload!

I find it hilarious how Abbey is jealous of Paulo, when Daisy has been insanely infatuated with Mike for a long period of time, and it wasn’t even that well-hidden. I mean, the day that Abbey had that big confrontation with Augustus, Daisy was on a sort-of date with Mike for crying out loud. None the less, it’s kind of cute. I don’t know if it’s just the fact that Abbey dislikes Paulo or what?
Jealousy is never a good thing though… I don’t know if Daisy would find it endearing that he is jealous of Paulo or if she will get a bit upset.

@daft_inquisitor I do but i wouldn’t say he was crushed. Maybe disheartened. And i don’t think it was the fact that he was in love with daisy i think its more along the lines of he really cares for her and david was putting weird thoughts in his head then.

Tia July 19, 2013, 1:19 PM EST.

Well, he *is* getting therapy. Maybe he’ll catch himself and realize he needs to calm down. They look young in that picture and it’s no secret Paulo and her are pretty much best friends. Then again, likely not. ;)

I don’t know why there are all these comments about Abbey’s jealousy being cute. With his history of anger and Daisy’s mainly being with him because he gives her attention, I can only see bad things happening if this progresses..

I literally yelled,”I KNEW IT. I WAS RIGHT.”, as soon as I saw the page. Abbey’s jealous, and he’s going to do something about it. But I suggest he doesn’t yell. As we can see earlier in this chapter, Daisy doesn’t like being yelled at.

Hm… a bump in the road or the start of the end for those two? This makes me apprehensive, to be honest. Plot points like this don’t usually come out of nowhere, especially when there’s so much else going on at the same time. It might just lead up to a confrontation and they’ll work it out, but I dunno if Daisy and Abbey can last forever.

@Steely I hope he doesn’t take it to the point of yelling or hitting. Jealousy is normal to a degree but don’t stay with someone who gets out of hand about it.

Ket July 19, 2013, 1:58 PM EST.

Drama bomb incoming. I mean, PauloxDaisy has always had some form of bearing. And while she may be innocent right now, we’ve seen how Daisy can act. Funny, for the smartest character of the main four, she tends to have the worst common sense.

That said though, Paulo has said she’s like a little sister to him, so Abbey is probably overreacting.

Aw, Abbey, no.. The thing I’ve always liked about these guys is that they’ve been supportive of each other. And being jealous over something so minor is not being very trusting of Daisy.
I do get that he comes from a tough family situation though and may be emulating his father. I hope he can realize that and work through it- Daisy seems more than willing to help him.

Paulo really does love Lucy. He always has. Paulo asked for help with work to make Daisy happy. Just because Paulo and Daisy aren’t together doesn’t mean Paulo wants to see her miserable. They’re all scared about what happened with Lucy. Paulo seems to be the only one who appreciates Daisy trying to take everyone’s mind off of what happened.

@Whistleblower: It is more likely that he just doesn’t trust Paulo. Especially with how close they seem and Paulo’s previous behaviour with females, though we all know Paulo is a lot nicer and better behaved when Daisy is near by.

@V: There isn’t a constant need for them to wear clothes so they don’t.

it’s only natural abbey would be feeling like that, seeing as how those two are really good friends and have been for a while as opposed to the shorter amount of time he’s known her. haw haw :smirk:

Abbey should really know better. I mean come on if Paulo and Daisy were going to get together they had plenty of years to do so before they even met Abbey. Daisy was Paulo’s first friend when he moved in to town, so they are really close friends.

Daisy has always been infatuated with Mike but Since she’s been with Abbey it seems to have lessened. She’s always seemed a bit in love with love itself, but I don’t think she would ever cheat on Abbey. Ever.
So I do understand Abbeys jealousy but at the same time I think he’s overreacting - Paulo and Daisy are old friends, they are very close to each other but only platonically. I hope they are okay.

He probably isn’t calling Daisy on the gray plushie because he knows he’d lose that argument. Plus Mike is generally a good guy. (And he knows he’s only got Daisy because he came in second place. Maybe third with Paulo around :D)

@titanium dragon
I don’t think Abbey is a jerk - he has anger issues but he is aware of his faults and is trying to do something about them. His problems stem from something outside of his control, but he still takes responsibility for his actions and he TRIES to be a good person. Like every other character here, he is a teenager who is still growing, and I like the fact he is actively trying to better himself. And in all honesty - while I do like Paulo, I can completely understand why Abbey hates him.
So yeah - I think he can be angry, and occasionally jerky but he has a very good heart and is at the end of the day a good person. Flawed doesn’t mean ” a jerk”
Now Lucy - THERE’S your jerk! :p

@Bellsprout: Ask yourself how you would feel if a friend you knew for a long time decided to move away without saying goodbye. One moment they are there and everything is fine, but then they are gone and there is a good chance you will never see them again. Their reactions are perfectly normal for a bunch of teenagers that are losing a friend. I have a feeling that they don’t even know Lucy was in the hospital(other than Mike). Even if they did know, their reaction still makes sense. Even Daisy who is trying to cope by making others feel better or at least trying to so her reaction is still normal for her personality.

Also, I’m not certain that Lucy actually tried to end her own life on purpose. I’m still leaning with the theory that she’s in the hospital because she hasn’t been eating well or taking care of herself. Physical health wouldn’t be a top priority when feeling worthless. :(

Well as for Abbey’s current reaction… how would you feel if the person you love was starting to spend more time with the person you hate. I have a feeling that you wouldn’t be happy about it.

Actually, now that I think about it, maybe Abbey isn’t showing jealousy, but concern for Daisy’s safety. The last time he saw Paulo, Paulo blew up at Daisy and stormed off. Perhaps Abbey is making a parallel how his mom kept going back to his dad despite his emotional and physical abuse to her, and he’s seeing Daisy doing the same thing (i.e. being friends with Paulo through childhood and staying close to him despite his bouts of dickishness) Either way, it’s irrational, because Paulo yelling at Daisy ISN’T the norm, but Abbey is probably more inclined to believe Paulo’s more of a dick than reality because of his inherent dislike of him.

This could end in Abbey telling Daisy he doesn’t want her near Paulo because he’s afraid of him hurting her, which could result in a fight with Daisy feeling Abbey is being controlling or over-possessive of her, and he’ll probably shout at her out of frustration, make some kind of flash-backy connection with his father, and break down crying or something of the sort.

If that’s the case, I totally called it. This trope brought to you by MissShellGiraffe (c) 2013 :P

I’m confused. Why would Abbey be jealous of PAULO rather than Mike?? Unless… he doesn’t see Mike as a threat, all things considered… Is he just a jealous bf then.. Hm, I hope this doesn’t get out of hand :(

Jealousy isn’t “cute,” guys. In all honesty, the comments condoning, even encouraging, such behavior is pretty damn despicable.

Abbey is okay with me because he’s a fictional, high school-aged cat, and therefore I am completely fine with him not being perfect for the sake of the plot. But real life people being okay with it? Uhm, no, guys. Please don’t encourage this sort of stuff in real life. It’s not cute. It’s controlling and just generally not good for a relationship of any sort.

Though, it’s not bad. Yet. But it’s red flags all around. :<

Pfw (Paulo’s face when)

Seriously that bottom panel after Abbey yells. Love it. Abbey I think us people in the chat can all agree that Paulo ain’t the one to be worried about when it comes to Daisy’s heart…

I don’t think any of the group here really ‘gets’ the kind of sibling like relationship Paulo and Daisy have with each other. Sure they’re not pairing them up like they did with Mike and Lucy, (and that’s likely cause Paulo is such a horn dog,) but no one else seems to give them the credit they deserve on how close they really are.

@coolperson Lucy has always been a jerk - mike is actually really nice, but she abused him physically and emotionally for 10 years and he snapped.
Lucy does have a reason for her behaviour but unlike Abbey she doesn’t seem to actually do anything to overcome it UNTIL somebody snaps at her. She knew Mike was getting hurt, she knew the way she was acting was wrong and she still hit him, yelled at him and insulted him. She is getting better but she is a jerk. She reacts immediately to anything she dislikes with violence - that is not normal.
Also people laming Daisy for Abbeys jealousy - women are allowed to have male friends. Abbeys jealousy is NOT Daisy’s fault. I think it’s more that he doesn’t trust Paulo as opposed to not trusting Daisy.

But yeah - kindof irritating how Abbey is the one called “Mr Anger issues” despite actually having a legitimate reason to have issues, and actually trying to overcome them, whereas Lucy gets a free pass to be a bitch to everyone, mainly because she’s pretty.

well dear @Smegirl , it is interesting to see how you protect overnaive Mike who turns against the world for his distand girlfriend Sandy stupidly enough to forget how much he likes and understands Lucy. Now that’s not normal. Sure she gets abusive, sometimes even in unfair way but moust of the time she hits ppl because they make insulting remarks because of her looks. Its no wonder she then has problems to take compliments when many just kept bugging her or hitting on her as if she was a W****. She obviously cares for Mike even enough to support him so he can be with Sandy happy. She knows how much Mike is obsessed with Sandy that Lucy easylie becomes air to him and then he comes back to her as if nothing happened. Its no use to be more than just friends with him at this rate and she knew it from the start. No wonder shes all bitchie around him when all he needs is Sandy to frown and he stabs ppls backs like the worst cat in the comic. *hint*December*hint*
Sure he can be a nice guy but hes been always a jerk from the start of the comic. I believe hes ment to be the jerk to make this comic running. Oh boy, im so looking forward for more pages of this “perfect” Sandy. As far I know this comic, there will be drama with her guaranteed :D

As for Abbey, silly fellow, he needs to get his temper more under control :P

My hypothisis: Its been hinted there will be a bombshell on the way between lucy and mike, this page confirms what i think is going to eventualy happen. Abbys going to blow it with daisy, daisy might end up with paulo, mike and lucy will finnaly reconsile, and abby will have a thing with sue. The whole reason i liked this comic to begin with is because i love, love hate relationships. Mike and lucy gave me that in the begining. I don’t like abby, but i think him and sue would be interesting story ark. Two people who r polor oppisites, i beleive that oppisites do attract.

JustSomeCritic July 20, 2013, 7:07 PM EST.

Comment ID #254300

@dk3 - no sorry - having people insult her looks DOES NOT give her an excuse to be physically abusive. And just because he understands Lucy doesn’t mean they should be together.
A relationship isn’t about one person supporting the other - it’s about BOTH members making each other happy, and bringing out the best in each other. She wore him down for ten years. She slapped him on stage in front of a room full of people in rehearsal and nobody reacted. She strangled him in Acapulco when he tried to protect her on the cliff and nobody called her out on it. It’s funny how people call Mike out for being “obsessed” with his, y’know, GIRLFRIEND, but nobody bats an eye at Lucy’s obsession with him.

Maybe the reason Mike puts Sandy first is because she’s the only character who treats him with respect and cares about his feelings?
When Lucy confessed, EVERYBODY expected mike to turn around and accept her feelings, and even insulted him when he didn’t. He has been repeatedly told by his “friends” that his long distance relationship doesn’t count. He’s beaten up, insulted, emotionally led on and let down and nobody cares, but god forbid Lucy have to suffer the consequences of her actions to people. So no, in my opinion, Mike isn’t a jerk - he just treats the people who treat him right better than the ones who treat him like crap.

She would break up with you as nicely as possible, wait a month or two, then go to Paulo.

@Smegirl and @Dk3: Here’s a little something on Mike and Lucy. I’ll even quote some parts so you can see them better. The quotes are right below their respective links if anyone is confused. :) 474109578754155727
“You assume that only one of them is at fault.” 471023664435847088
“… Hitting is really not a good thing to do at all whichever way you slice it.” 471011404573328187
“Basically both are ******.” 470118884607815972
“Being young and emotionally immature, he’s unsure of how to react to a complex situation.” 470765156138245887
“He was still mistrusting of her, but he wanted to at least talk about it and see if it was worth continuing.”

You can try blaming one or the other, but just know that they are teenagers and they each made mistakes just like any other teenager would. People can keep on hating them or we could try coming up with a possible solution/future path to make the future better or just enjoy this wonderful comic. It’s your choice. :)

@xeohunter: No, Lucy is not “gone for good” as you put it.

I also would like to point out something very important about Lucy that a few people just can’t seem to understand. 478640625609104332

As long as Lucy is still alive, then you can expect to see her again. Plus, she’s a major part of the story’s plot. We’ll see her again eventually.

However, it won’t be for a while… we might catch a glimpse of Lucy when she leaves the hospital in about a week and she’ll be fine, but that would be it.

We won’t be seeing her for a long time after she leaves Roseville with her father.

The teachers already know that she won’t be attending school anymore and her stuff has already been packed up and she’s all set to move away.

For now, just pretend that Lucy is Sandy because we’ll be seeing Lucy just as much as we see Sandy until further notice. 482259932893173085

For anybody that is only here for Lucy, I suggest you stop by in a few months. Because for now Lucy is just a memory that most of the cast will be thinking, talking, or in some cases(Paulo) dreaming about.

Lucy will not be around for now, but we’ll get to see other characters that were in need of some spotlight(Tess and Jess in the same room and not one single insult has been thrown) and more drama from other relationships(well we are currently watching Abbey get angry(and jealous) at the fact that Daisy is spending more time with Paulo and even has a picture of them together(back from when they were younger). You can tell that this study party will get very interesting. 482033360315632839

If not from Abbey and Daisy drama, then from Paulo and Rachel drama… they did wake up in the same bed together. Even if they did nothing at all, that is sure to get a reaction from the others if they find out.

The reason Abbey is not angry at mike just Paulo has 3 main parts, firstly Paulo has a very untrustworthy record whereas mike’s record was clean, secondly Abbey knows he can crush Mike in a fight but Paulo would be more difficult, and finally Abbey knows nothing he could do to mike would be worse than Mikes everyday interactions with Lucy whereas Paulo’s interactions with almost all the girls in BCB has ended up in a bedroom at some point or another.

Good points indeed. I guess I just find it irritating that Mike is turning stuff into big drama when Lucy was clearly trying to improve her behavior to the point where shes now leaving the story for him. Oh well… I agree that both are at fault and the hitting is bad wich basically started as humor in anime like fashion but what can I say. Have a “happy” life Mike for getting what you “wanted”? Im really curious to actualy see that if he really becomes a nice guy now when Lucy is all gone. So it seems….or is it? :D

I liked the page that was edited, but I still think the table would need to show at least one more leg or hint at there being one. It probably wouldn’t need to stick out too far from it either, otherwise it looks a tad flat. Then again from checking what different tables look like at different angles it is possible for it to look like that due to its design. Perhaps on the table darker shadows cast on the objects behind others. Then again making it more 3d might make it more distracting. Hmmm.
