Aww daisy, even when your sad you try to make everything better.
I think she is going to tell him to make a romantic gesture, such as flowers or a movie.

Or he could confess his feelings for her, leading to a Disaster Dominos scenario. Yea, that wouldn’t be good. but it would fit for the tone of the comic. We should all be grateful we have david for the comic relief, I couldn’t live without that.

P.S. I love the new art style, keep up the good work!

Comment ID #275780

I don’t see Daisy going for the whole “pretending to be Paulo’s girlfriend to make Abbey jelous” solution.
1 - that would be cliche, and Taeshi’s really good at avoiding cliche’s and taking the story to unexpected places.
2 - the problem is that Abbey feels unloved and like the silver medal, and Daisy knows that - she lacks common sense sometimes, but she’s smart enough to know that this will only make things worse.
3 - it seems really out of character for both Paulo and Daisy to pretend to be into each other to get Rachel and Abbey back (even though Rach probably isn’t doing anything).
If they DO though, It would make me think a lot less of both of them.
I like Paulo, but he’s pushing it lately, and I love Daisy but again, she has some faults she really needs to work on before she ruins things for herself, and she’s at the perfect age to do some soul searching.

Situation A : Daisy asks either Paulo or David to pretend to date with her to make abbey jealous ( which would kinda be cliche and not what i think taeshi would do when it comes to daisy and Paulo… now as for david… that would really be a wrench coming out of nowhere. for daisy to try to get a pretend date from David … and that’s something that taeshi might do just to mess with everyone’s head.)

Situation B: Daisy decides that the only way she is going to cheer abbey up, or get the relationship working again. is to go do it with him. giving her blush and sparkly eyes.. i think thats what she is thinking or something close to it.. and while daisy is a good friend most of the time… she is not the most sharpest tool in the shed..

Situation C: Taeshi gives us another unexpected twist that makes everyeone go wtf? DDX

All in All.. lets just wait and see what happens.. i think thats the best course of action the fandom can do at this point.

Come to think of it, I bet Abbey IS the kind of guy who’d like to get roses.
Also, David is being a straight-up butt at this point. I mean, he was able to get away with it before, but he’s just straight-up being a butt now.
I hope whatever Daisy has planned backfires and burns to the ground, especially after she got those stars in her eyes and that blush on her face.
Maybe they will make a plan to make “Mr. Big and Hunky” jealous, but maybe it’ll just be a cover for Daisy’s deeper desires: to get laaaaaaid.

It’s too early to say anything at this point. Im just glad Paulo exceeded my expectations. Even if it is sarcastic and lame, he He’s doing this instead of flying off the handle. I just hope that he realizes that if he values Rachael, he’ll just try to talk to her about her friend, or at least ask. As for Daisy … I think she should let Abbey cool off and try another conversation when emotions aren’t high.

Surprise twist:
Daisy suggests the fake dating to make Abbey jealous, but with DAVID! As they enact their sinister plan, Sue suddenly pipes up about her own repressed feelings. David and Sue start dating for real while Paulo and Rachel get back together after Paulo beats up ‘Mr Big-‘n-Hunky’. Thus bringing us to the timeline of Another Plan.

And Abbey finds a soulmate in Jasmine while working together in the student council, leaving Daisy to fade into obscurity. XD

Daisy… remember to think things through. Whatever you’re planning make sure to think it through! I hope this goes well. I also hope that if Daisy suggests something that Paulo is uncomfortable with, that he says so and doesn’t just go along with it. David is being quite the instigator in this chapter it seems. He seems to be pushing Paulo in both directions with Rachel and Lucy.

@ HelTH/MobileCrusader/TheGentleman/Tails Maybe Daisy will suggest paulo and Rachel go on a picnic like they did. She can be kinda selfless and forget about herself to help others. I hope Daisy just takes some time to think and dose not try and rush back to her relationship with abbey. Paulo should just ask Rachel who her boy toys are and ware he stands in the rank of most liked.

Yeah you´re right, that would be a really bad idea!
Abbey hates paulo big time (as we know) and if Daisy would try to fake a date with him Abbey would just be REALLY ****** and it would totally destroy him emotionally and drive him further away from her. And about Paulo and rachel….she propably would see through it instantly and Paulo will end up trying to awkwardly explaining to her while she waves it off, because she knows that he is only trying to help daisy.

I think if Daisy has the harebrained idea that leading Abbey to being jealous will bring him back into her arms then she really needs to get back down to reality. In fact I’m pretty sure Abbey left because he was getting really uncomfortable with his jealousy and was either unable or unwilling to change his mind. So basically leading Abbey to be jealous will only serve to make the separation between them permanent. However, in her state I think that’s exactly what she will do and what she tried to revive only ends up killing whatever was left. That’s my take on it.

eyexofxtiger February 21, 2014, 6:56 PM EST.

Comment ID #275842

abbey left her cause he was jealous at the fact that she wanted someone else, so the assumption of a fake date is so out there and cliche it makes me hit my head on my desk. cliches arent this comic, plot twists are the norm so really any speculation is probably wrong.

daisy is more than likely trying to help paulo, she doesnt think about things for herself cause she isnt selfish. shes probably just going to suggest a date/picnic/something that shows that paulo does like rachel and wants to have something more than just screwing every once in a while. but then theres lucy and we all know he loves lucy way more than a thing with rachel so.. its such a wrapped up love triangle square rhombus whatever.

as much as i love abbey and daisy together, a break would be good. if their breakup is forever, ill be sad, but you cant just love another man and be with someone else cause that was the only thing paying attention to you (and not that date rape crap gus tried to pull.) theyre both very sweet kids, but theyre kids. i went through this whole ride plenty of times during high school, and after the trial and error its just better to be single while youre young. things get crazy and you dont know how to handle something as adult as dating when you arent even able to legally drive!! daisy being single would be a good thing, she could get over these boys and find out what she really wants, and go for it when shes ready. not just cause its available. all in all, like i said earlier, any speculation is probably wrong. so before any of you get your panties in a bunch, just wait 2 days. dont call daisy stupid for doing something she hasnt even done.

You know, I’m starting to feel Paulo’s getting territorial with some of the girls he’s getting into even though they aren’t even in a relationship. Sure, he might still have going on with Jazmine, Lucy, and maybe even… Darn, I forget the first girl he was with before, but with Rachel? Okay, she was probably there for him for moral support, and slept with him a few times, but this relationship is seriously complicated right now.

Paulo’s all angst and thinks this is all about him, and he clearly isn’t good with considering what others are dealing with, Rachel in this case. I mean come ON Paulo. GOD. :nope:

@Dudeler its like hes saying “no theyre the girls i want no one else can have them shoo”

except with jasmine, he let that go pretty quickly cause he was gonna tell lucy, and then she ran off and now rachel happened. rachel looks like the type of person to be polyamory, not wanting to be tied down with one specific person. she likes to mess around and have fun, and i doubt she’ll give that up for paulo. itll be daisy and abbey all over again, being together while one is still in love with another person. its just a disaster waiting to happen

If Daisy is actually going to try being with Paolo to make Abbey jealous so he’ll come back, then she really did not understand why he left in the first place. Treating this like some sort of game—‘I bet I can make Abbey jealous enough to take me back!’—will just prove how right he was to leave. I feel like she’s ignoring the obvious solution here—self-reflect and decide if she really did ‘love’ him, and if she didn’t, respect the fact that he needed someone who did and move on.

Paolo, you reeeeally need to make up your mind. Girls aren’t going to want to be with you if you forever shove them all into second place, then get territorial when they want someone to actually decide on them for a change.

And David, just keep calling people out on their bull. You are doing fabulously.

Nel February 21, 2014, 10:12 PM EST.

Comment ID #275851

I’m pretty sure Daisy’s face does not pair up with a jealousy ploy. She looks happy, like she thinks she has a way to fix Paulo’s problem. Plus, Taeshi is not that predictable. Have some faith in her.

The obvious problem here is Daisy’s infatuation with Michael. Yet she keeps dancing around the issue. She is constantly confronted with her problem, but she just runs instead of trying to fix it. Now Paulo’s problem fixates her. She is hurting others because she will not fix the problem at its source. She will continue to hurt others until she actually faces the issue at hand, instead of playing some innocent little girl with her head in the clouds. Daisy, if you care, then why don’t you do something about it? You have some serious issues with reality, girl, and you should be smart enough to see it if you let yourself.

David, you are actually earning brownie points right now. Your constant blocking of Paulo’s hypocrisy is exactly what I would do. This doesn’t nullify any of the **** you pulled earlier. But at least you have started earning positives for once. Do something actually worthwhile and I might not hate you anymore.

@Lordofrye: David is losing all his brownie points with me. Not only has he been making true statements at an inappropriate time where it is making everything worse (when someone is crying or someone is trying to cheer them up, you do NOT actively call them out for minor details, that’s just going to make it worse and if it was YOUR best friend that he was upsetting further, you’d honestly feel like punching him in his stupid face for his horrible timing), but he is also spurring on Paulo’s jealous rage. He is actually making everything WORSE like a jerk without any real reason for it because he just does what he feels like. :/

Daisy needs to fix her problem before being cheered up, otherwise this will happen again and again. This is not “minor problems”. And even if I would feel angry at my friends for criticising me, that doesn’t mean that it was not the right thing to do. Letting Paulo reinforce Daisy’s problems is more harmful in the end than making either of them angry.

That being said, I might still have to retract my current support. Not to say that David is doing the wrong thing, but that he isn’t doing the right thing because it’s right. If he’s just doing it to be contrary or to **** Paulo off or because he thinks it’s funny, then he deserves no accolades. I will only support him if he is correcting Paulo to help. We might need the word of the author to know what is going on inside his head. 100% support what he is doing, not so sure that I support him.

So Daisy either has a very stupid idea of trying to use a fake relationship to try and make abbey and Rachel jealous. Or she came up with a sweet idea to help paulo try to win Rachel over. I’m leaning more tords helping paulo. Hopefully Daisy can see that jealous is what got her here in the first place.
@ Lordofrye/Moogle but that’s what David dose. He is a clueless idiot who hits nails on the head.
@ Tails yea Rachel probably would see right through Daisy and paulos fake relationship. She would probably play along because she would think paulo is so cute :P trying to make her jealous and because he is helping Daisy.
@ HelTH awwwwww isn’t that cute Daisy has a idea. BUT IT’S WROOOOONG! (If it’s the jealousy plan the other is a good ideal)

Sooooo. Most people have come to the conclusion that Daisy is gonna come up with an idea of a fake relationship :/. That’s quite interesting :). But she could also just have thought of some other way to help him (not gonna say with pic nic though, I don’t understand why pic nic would be a good idea).

I agree with you @Lordofrye, Daisy should not dodge her problem. She should try to deal with it. But it appears she has found herself an excusable distraction. I think that is bad for her :/.

I can’t wish her luck if she doesn’t want to deal with her own problems.

I guess we will have to see next page what she is about to suggest :D

I think everyone is taking the wrong mindset, or just making g out of hand assumptions. I highly doubt daisy will play the jealousy card. it’s not just lacking with common sense, its kind day stupid, being my opinion. and Abby feels unloved by daisy. her playing the jealousy card would put Abby into an even farther distance from her. I’m pretty sure she knows at least THAT MUCH. besides, playing the jealousy card is on
lay a good move to try if the person you love doesn’t love you back as much. not when you have to prove your love.

Comment ID #275882


What? There is NO way that Abbey is going to LET Daisy sleep with him knowing she doesn’t have feelings for him. That’s why he broke it off, Daisy was being pushy and he didn’t want that seriousness if she didn’t love him. Throw out that option XD


I love your surprise twist. Daisy needs to be alone until she gets sorted.


As for dating Paulo as a fake-out, that’s just confuse everyone. Rachel thinks Paulo wants Lucy and would feel used if suddenly Daisy is around. And Abbey would be really hurt if she jumped over to Paulo after all this. He hates Paulo, and would probably think even less of his relationship with Daisy (might even think sex was really all she wanted if she fake-dates Paulo the “sex-womanizer”).

Dumb teens, it would just make EVERYONE you want to make love you, think that you really don’t care. Why do people think that works? Jealousy does not encourage love, it ruins it.

Also I agree with whoever mentioned that if Daisy is trying to win Abbey back, not for loving him but because she selfishly loved having him to date, then she does need to be alone. She doesn’t understand why he broke it off and until she can see past her own selfishness, she needs some reflecting time.

I do support Daisy and Abbey, and really hope that this doesn’t turn into “Paulo lets fake date so Abbey gets jealous!” which may work to make him jealous, but will defiantly not work in Daisy’s favor…at least not likely. Hell that would cause so much drama (which this BCB world loves, so most likely is what will happen). Not only do I think Abbey will get jealous, he will get angry. VERY angry. And we all know how he handles his anger, especially when it comes to anything with Daisy or towards Paulo…NOT so well. He’ll start a fight and even refuse to get back with Daisy, seeing it as she’s just picked up someone new to try and distract her from “her precious Mikey”.

It’s kind of how Mike looked at Lucy clinging to Paulo after she thought he was dead or her hanging out with Augustus at one point (I can’t remember if it was after she told Mike she loved him or after he just crushed her and they had the giant fallout…but not the point.) Mike saw Lucy with these new guys as her trying to just jump to the next male-figure she could, thus ****** him off and saw her as pathetic and didn’t take her saying that she loved him seriously…I see this EXACT same thing happening if Daisy does date someone to make Abbey jealous. Abbey will see it as even further proof that Daisy does not love him and distances himself from her even further.


I also see this seriously screwing with Paulo’s head…I mean, he’s already fighting in his head over Lucy and Rachel. He obviously likes Rachel a lot. However he also loves Lucy…but Lucy isn’t there at the moment and even if she were, there is no guarantee that she will decide “hey I love you too lets date”. Although he keeps saying that him and Rachel are just friends (that happen to wake up in the same bed from time to time) he does obviously like her to the point he’s getting jealous over her giving so much attention to another guy, despite knowing Rachel likes having sex with people…a lot.

Now if he were to start having an old crush of his, like Daisy, as a fake date I feel like this would just **** him up a bit. Anyone remember the vacation where David implanted the idea of Daisy into his head where he couldn’t do it with Tess? Imagine that suddenly being brought back and he doesn’t WANT her to go back with Abbey and he just wants to date her instead…..AND is jealous with Rachel being with that other guy….AND is constantly worried about Lucy and still loves her. I honestly think Paulo has enough drama and girl-confusion in his head that I feel bad him for what I see about to unfold. Hell I feel bad for everyone involved! And everyone that COULD be involved! Imagine if Lucy were to just decide to pop back up into the story at the wrong time? Yeeeaaaah…..Take about a great way to be welcomed back.

Sure, I could totally be wrong and none of that is going to happen and this idea that Daisy has is the best idea ever in the history of BCB ideas…this is merely my opinion and thoughts on the matter.

Or you know, throw me a curve ball and she goes and dates Augustus for awhile.

…Dear god I love it…that would be the best twist ever!! XD

I like how you explained about Mike and Lucy.

It would probably mess with Paulo’s head if they were to fake date yeah. He probably wouldn’t be able to handle to think about Rachel, Lucy and Daisy all at the same time. But I don’t think a fake date is about to happen. I would bet 500 icelandic krónur upon that, but if I lost I wouldn’t know where to send them, so I will not bet any money :D.

if we look, what “take heart” means:
1. “to receive courage or comfort from some fact.”
2. “to start to feel more hopeful and more confident (often + from )”
3. “to feel encouraged”

That could already show that maybe it´s daisy who will encourage paulo for going after rachel or give him more confidence about that!

I just think of the way Abbey reacted to Daisy helping Paulo study for exams. He actually felt like he had to compete with Paulo. He pulled Daisy promptly away to review some notes of a mutual class. It may not be that crazy to think that a plan to use Paulo to make Abbey jealous would work.

Even if Abbey really wants to call the quits on the relationship, I don’t think he’d be able to tolerate his least favorite person acting in as a rebound.

Or Abbey will see Daisy’s new sex interest as seriously just wanting a body. Any body to take her mind off Mike. Whether it being his or even Paulo’s.

Let’s not forget Paulo’s reputation after Jess and Rachel had a shouting match with Tess and Lucy which made it look like he was four-timing all of them while sleeping with half of them. Especially now that he’s friends with benefits with Rachel, known for her “classy” reputation.

Abbey is going to see all this really badly against Daisy. Abbey doesn’t understand why Daisy was dating him when she wanted Mike. He’s going to be looking for the easiest answer to set his mind at ease to move on. With Paulo in the picture he’s going to feel like sex was all Daisy wanted from him if she fake-dates Paulo who is now known for this kind of behavior. And Abbey’s going to be mad at her.

Personally I hope Daisy takes the fake-date route so that she learns to take notice of people’s feelings. It might make her more observant in the future. And teach her a really good lesson that you can’t always get your way.

Honestly, she doesn’t take no for an answer. She was like that with Mike, repeatedly, and if she tries to weasel back with Abbey despite knowing that HER Mike feelings are the problem, she really has an issue with guys rejecting her. The fact is, you can’t force people to like you or to stay with you if their feelings are different than yours.

@Jonas97face Thanks for the response!

I really wanna see how Abbey’s holding up - poor guy.
the way I see it, he loves Daisy truly, but he’s convinced she doesn’t love him, and he’s left it now because it simply hurts less.
I don’t see Daisy and Paulo hooking up, that would just make things worse and would be out of character for both of them. What Daisy needs to do, is spend some time alone, away from outside influence, and really analyse what she wants to do, and how she feels.
AbbeyXDaisy is my favourite couple, but I don’t want them to be together if they’re both just going to end up hurt.
