wait, Wait, WAIT! Why didn’t Daisy just buy the flower for Abbey herself? If she really cared and wanted to get back together with him, then why would she hesitate?

13lackout March 12, 2014, 1:15 PM EST.

Comment ID #276814

The best part of this is Daisy didn’t get out of her problem because now Abbey didn’t even get a rose from her. Paulo couldn’t win points for Daisy.

Which I actually was hoping she got the courage to send some to him herself anyway. Which to me, would mean that her convo with Abbey made her realize she wasn’t into Mike and has fallen for Abbey.

Wrong. I expected too much of her as usual. Mad Lucy

(Though frankly her sending a rose could also mean she doesn’t care about Abbey’s feelings and just wanted her way anyway, like she treated Mike before in that forceful manner. :/ )

This current page goes to show you:

A) Daisy really doesn’t like/want Abbey that much and recognizes this. Chooses not to send a rose to be honest with her feelings.

B) She does want Abbey, but develeoped a conscience to his words and thought it’s not right to substitute people for others, maturing some, and preventing her from sending a rose herself. However, she found Paulo doing this circled around so she could both not feel guilty if it worked and so that she still gets her way.

C) She does want/like Abbey more than Mike. And is actually SO immature that she couldn’t pluck up and send a rose. Even though her relationship was PAST the rejection factor because Abbey broke up with her because he felt he was more serious.

The only option that looks good for Daisy is A. It at least makes her honest with herself and not selfish or a child.

Comment ID #276819

:D Tails I got three options about it! I even attempted not to make Daisy look bad as this ordeal actually is doing to her character flaws. I do this for YOU!

(Side note: I might always read too much into things I like to banter about, that’s not the point! Mad Lucy Don’t ruin my need to share character dynamics on the story! ;) I don’t get to do this anywhere else. )

First, I’m assuming this rose business was NOT a time-wasting filler chapter. And that it is intended to show more insight to both Paulo’s and Daisy’s actual feelings. (This is why I think it is called Take Heart)

Second, I am assuming the reason why Paulo and Daisy worked this hard over this rose business was so that Daisy and Paulo could resolve their personal conflictions. Or at least make their intentions clear with Rachel or Abbey.

Well, it makes sense if you think about it.
Paulo has secretly been hounding after Mike throughout the entire comic and he’s gotten close at times, but like Lucy, I think he’s finally trying to put Mike behind as a lost cause.
It’s little surprise that Paulo is now going after Abbey as his next potential suitor. I mean he did just break up with Daisy, he’s vulnerable, and Paulo is actually deep down a very sensitive guy.
I hope it works out rather well for those two lovebirds.

Ummm I think it wasn’t “To Abbey From Paulo” sort of thing where Paulo wrote his name. I think that the student body just placed down who was paying or who asked for the flower. If you notice a couple of pages ago, it is Jasmine that is writing down the name. Perhaps Paulo just forgot to say “oh yeah it is suppose to be under the name ‘Daisy’ not mine. Thanks Jazzy.”

Comment ID #276839

@ MYPACK It was a good plan. To bad paulo let his feelings for abbey show threw. It could have been funnier if he put down Rachel’s name instead. Abbey probably would not be offended by it if it was from Rachel. He is really ******. Maybe he sees through the plan and what’s it about. He just wants Daisy to say she loves him. This is getting more complicated then it needs to be. Hahaha kids and there crazy plans and ideas.

Comment ID #276860

Daisy wimping out on buying the flower doesn’t entirely suggest she doesn’t care about Abbey, though I will agree certainly that if she were more serious about getting back in his good books, she screwed this up by not doing it herself, and relying on someone else to deliver somewhat.

Plus with “friendship” flowers, I think the best she can hope for is that regardless. She’s not acting like someone on cusp of a breakup they care about really. My vibe from all this is that she just wants Abbey to be her friend more than anything, maybe that would of worked if she’d brought her flower. But I think Abbey’s going to be even more upset that she can’t even muster up the effort for this. In trying to fix the situation, she’s maybe made it worse with her lack of action (as essentally, ironically, the flowers may of well been from Paulo anyway considering the effort he put in)

Now Abbey likely thinks Paulo’s pranking him, and Daisy egged him on. I wonder if his insecurity regarding Paulo’s relation to Daisy will crop up here too?

Guys leave @Tails alone. I realize that they prefer pathos arguments to the logos debate points that i prefer, but that doesn’t mean they are all bad arguments.

They often just come from a place of experience. Pathos are more subjective to the person reading them, whereas logos tend to be less defined to a side, but harder to argue being more factual.


I like this post. I am interested to see if Abbey yells at the pair of them. I imagine his pride is hurt it wasn’t Daisy and he could think that Paulo (possibly Daisy) are making fun of the breakup. Like, “Haha Abbey, you guys are just friends.” We’ll have to see.

@ Lickit&stickit I can see abbey thinking paulo is making fun of the break up but why lump Daisy in? I can’t see abbey thinking Daisy is making fun of him over the break up. But it is very possible he will yell at both of them anyway. Or he will start yelling at paulo and Daisy will intervene and things will just continue to get worse.
@ TheScarletTailedFox thanks. SuitCase once told me he likes my enthusiasm. So I try to be active and keep doing whatever it is I do. Don’t be afraid to speak your mind. You no unless you can’t take what other people have to think or say.

I’ll defend you as a person, I just won’t defend your pathos views that I don’t agree with for you. :P I’m not a total jerk. XD


I think he would lump Daisy in if he got jealous of Paulo. It would be unfair, but if Abbey got angry he wouldn’t be rational His feelings are still hurt. He’s like a wounded gazelle on the sahara of highschool. He is going to run or kick when threated.

@ HelTH/Tails I was okay with Daisy and abbey. I still would like them to be together but the thought of Daisyxpaulo is just so much more fun.
@ Lickit&stickit yes that makes sense. He is definitely jealous of paulo. So he probably will get upset at both of them just because Daisy is hanging around him. But I still don’t think he would think Daisy is making fun of what happened.

I wonder what that rose actually said. If it said something like “I love you”, then Abbey will be really annoyed because he will think that it is a prank. If it says nothing or something harmless, it might actually improve the relationship between Paulo and Abbey. That’s good.

Oh, and by the way, @Tails: try not to say that someone is “overthinking”. It is possibly the most infuriating thing that has ever been replied to me. It feels like you are saying “your opinion doesn’t matter because it’s wrong”. Everyone here has a legitimate reason for commenting. Don’t put someone down before you even know what they are saying.

@LordofRye Tails’ comment about overthinking is probably the most relevant in this comic’s comment section regardless of what page we’re talking about. You guys really get enveloped in your cat drama. And that’s fine!

The another one annoyed Jasmine, and this one may influence Daisy’s plan.

@Blue fox
this picture fits very well :D

“@ HelTH/Tails I was okay with Daisy and abbey. I still would like them to be together but the thought of Daisyxpaulo is just so much more fun.”
omg DaisyxPaulo? it´s a fun thought xD

My ideology cannon is normally loaded, but for this page i am not in the mood to fire it :D

i just gonna leave this here:

Oh yeah that would be a perfect fail fest :D

“My ideology cannon is normally loaded”

Given your argumentation style, I’d say Lickit&stickit hit it bang on when classifying it as pathos since that literally disregards both logic thinking and providing cool facts with nothing more than feelings and one-sided views.

Which is the main tactic of dirty tabloids targeting the lowest common denominators of society.

you seem to not having realized that this sentence was just meant as a joke. I don´t have a “Idology cannon” or anything like that.

And honestly, you really take the things here way too seriously, it´s just the comment section of a comic about cats and nothing more.

@ Jonas97face and daisy also sent paulo a rose with her name instead of Rachel’s. Every body gets friendship roses but not from the person they want them from.
@ Tails just look how much fun Daisy and paulo are having now :smirk:.

@ Tails
My main complaint with “overthinking” is that is somewhat disregards the argument of whoever you are talking to. I do read a lot into David’s actions: I know that. But to tell me that I’m overthinking when I’m ready to present an actual argument is incredibly frustrating. It feels like both I and whatever I may think is worthless. In an effort to have politeness over rudeness, I will ask you to not do this. Overthinking is when one is grasping at straws and making assumptions that have no base in fact. There is no such thing as reading too deeply into the meaning of any literary work as long as one can show their evidence. Please listen to people before judging them.

Oh, and I guess used the wrong word or something? Right? Is that why you were linking me to Wikipedia? Cause I couldn’t tell. It’d be more polite to actually give an explanation.

Lordofrye March 13, 2014, 5:30 PM EST.

Comment ID #276909

Well. I’m gonna say what I think I have said before. Wikipedia is not a reliable source. Just so you guys know that are often posting something from Wikipedia. Unless the source on Wikipedia came from another reliable source.

Are you an easily offended person? If you are then that’s ok. I’m also easily offended. Well. In real life that is to say. But I don’t think Tails was really judging anyone with the overthinking thing.

But I’m not going to be involving myself to much into this since I’m not really familiar with word overthinking being offensive. You 2 sort this out the best you can ;). There is no need for a fight.

Jonas97face March 13, 2014, 6:14 PM EST.

Comment ID #276910

Jesus guys are we really arguing about arguing? :question:

Tails, not to be rude, but that analysis paralysis does not make sense in this context. What action is paralyzed from over thinking a comic? It still updates at the same time.


I appreciate your arguments since they are often backed with insightful ideas. Don’t stop posting. ;)

Ok, people, its great that you all clearly enjoy this comic a lot, but if you’ll notice, the rules under posting comments even says to “stay on topic.” This is a comment section, NOT a forum or status update or blog or super-uber-long conversation between five to ten people. If you want to continue this conversation with each other then give each other your emails or dA’s or Twitter’s or whatever. Just engage in lengthy conversations elsewhere.

Ok i will not use it again when it makes you feel uncomfortable. But i also want to link you to this article here:
http://101books.net/2014/01/29/was-your-english- lit-teacher-wrong-about-symbolism/

It´s just that i know several authors and writers of different genres that have to deal with people who are reading (and thinking) too much into their works (as they have often told me themselves)and present them often with “evidences” to the supposed “facts” that they think to have found which mostly didn´t even come to the mind of the author while writing it and it partly really irritates them (althrough some of them actually like to make fun of it :P ). And through them i learned that there can be overthinking and overinterpretation when it comes to interpreting the meaning of literature works.

Tails March 13, 2014, 6:53 PM EST.

Comment ID #276913


Just because you don’t find joy in symbolism, doesn’t mean that everyone who enjoys it is deluded.

Frankly no one was over thinking anything. There wasn’t even a symbolism in the roses, we were just speculating Daisy’s feelings as of this page. And that’s fair game really.

We can use past words or actions that they did to make a judgement on the character’s feelings based on what’s going on.


Now if anyone were doing that, I’d say you have a point.

Lickit&stickit March 13, 2014, 7:01 PM EST.

Comment ID #276914

i never impled that i would think they would be deluded :o
And i also did not say that i don´t find joy in it, it can even be fun at times. (hell i even AM very active in a fandom where hidden symbols and meanings can partly be important - it´s not this one but explaining that would be way too offtopic)
But nevermind, we are going way too offtopic here and we should come back to the actual topic of cat drama :D

I wanna say sorry if i have offended you, that was not what i wanted. Your posts mostly really are rather insightful and well done. I really don´t wannaa fight with you.

And now you’re overthinking other people’s responses to your comment regarding overthinking.

Hypocritical, and also shows how that comment of yours in itself is a classic act of grasping at straws.

What interests me with this is that Paulo was able to make Abbey smile with whatever kind words he put down.

Paulo’s got his heart somewhere.

Butting in on others’ discussion and claiming they’re overthinking is a grade-A ********* maneuver, especially if you can’t hit up reliable sources and evidence.
Either contribute or stay out of the discussion.
So please, kindly take that **** of yours somewhere else, because the people having a conversation here doesn’t care for such petty BS.

@imenoa What are you adding to discussion other than your vitreous, vulgar, and uncalled for language? Besides that, I don’t remember addressing you first. Perhaps you are butting in on a conversation you don’t belong in? :)

Thanks for the compliments everyone. I don’t know if I get offended easily: I just remember having a really adverse response when this happened the first time. Just trying to talk to Tails so that nobody else would have the same reaction. I never wanted to fight either and I’m glad this was resolved peacefully.

Of course, someone made a good point that we are severely off-topic. I suggest that we fix that now that we are done with this altercation.

@ TheScarletTailedFox & @ Lickit&stikit
I don’t know how to post pictures but I do know that a lot of the information on modifying stuff is contained in the edit page. I’d check there and write down / copy anything interesting.

I thought the comment section was a place to actually talk about the page, not a contest over who can throw the largest temper tantrum. I’m sure we all got SO much more insight about the page due to the non-relevant bickering.

@scarlet and @lickit you have to use the right html code (i think in the edit function there is the right code that you can use for it)

Tails March 13, 2014, 11:19 PM EST.

Comment ID #276925

@tails the html should be< img src=”img” href=”link” alt=”alt text” > < /img > but without the spaces near the < and > the href and alt are uneccecery but useful. But this is off topic and the stuff is in the edit page anyway.

I just got olivers comment on the comic here if you want to know.

Wow, you’re posting logical fallacy upon logical fallacy and still not realizing why people are irritated by your comments?

You DO know hat’s classified as shitposting, especially since you’ve reduced it to “nuh uh, you are” instead of even trying o argue.

Ever wondered about that’s maybe WHY you’re getting hostile responses, since that “overthinking” comment of yours also is the epitome of childish comment.

@Tails I don’t know if any of my replies can be really called “responses” considering I haven’t taken any of the previous posts seriously.
