Ha, typical David. Seriously man, a simple relationship like that is not healthy for you, if both of you guys are not getting serious about it then what is the point of having one? She’s supportive of Paulo but is she willing to get any closer with him? If not, then let them just be friends.

Paulos new best friend is the emotion known as jealousy. Yea paulo what if Rachel has more then one cat toy? You thought you were special but your just another fling for her since you made your feelings very clear at her birthday party. You made your bed now sleep in it. Even if that other cat guy may be in that bed to.

I’m really going off Paulo.
he wants it both ways, being able to sleep with rach but keeping it no strings attached in case Lucy comes back. He has NO right to be jealous.
The guy he’s jealous off was the guy trying to make sure Rach had a fun birthday party - he spent the entire time whining about Lucy not being there.
He is so childish and selfish.

I’ve decided I don’t like Paulo anymore. The comic started off with the characters as young, angsty pre-teens so even if they were childish then, everyone has the chance to mature and see the error of their behaviour. Paulo has been met with the loss of a friend (and romantic interest) and has decided to become an arrogant and antagonising character to his peers. I haven’t seen a chapter in a while where Paulo HASN’T been cruel or degrading to his friends or made blow-up comments (such as this page).

He had several paths he could have gone down, and he’s become a bully. Like, please don’t ever put Lucy with Paulo. They would both become Tess and her old boyfriend.

Welp, here we go again. David’s putting thoughts into Paulo’s head again. Now we just wait for Paulo to screw up this relationship on his own. I bet Rachel’s not even planning on doing it with that black and white cat guy. EVEN if she did, what right does Paulo have to be jealous over it? Serious question… to me it seems that he thinks he deserves to have Rachel all to himself and still be in love with someone else(Lucy)… that’s not exactly fair to Rachel so if she wants to try finding somebody that loves her, then Paulo can’t do anything to stop Rachel if he’s unable to admit he might have fallen for her.

You knew something like this was going to happen eventually Paulo. You probably just didn’t expect for it to happen so soon. :nope: At this rate you’ll be like your father… the love of your life living someplace far away from you. :’(

Great, now the characters are looking like 7 year olds again.
Well except Mike, he looks four, his resemblance to Chris is stronger than ever because of that.

And the outline-less speech bubbles causes trouble yet again.
Had to triple check the one with paulo yelling to see it was actually not rounded.
Artsy-fartsy is getting in the way of conveying a visual message in a clear and concise manner, and that’s ironically something that should be avoided for something like a comic strip.

Leave that for separate paintings or images not part of a series.

@Keyblade Dragon
I believe you’re alien to the concept “friends with benefits”.

so, you paulo ****ERS… supporting his worthless *** and wanting him to get with lucy, despite his disloyal *** constantly sleeping with other girls and “falling in love” with atleast three other girls other than lucy… are only proving how stupid and worthless you really are.

meanwhile, mike has been nothing BUT loyal, he gave lucy a fair chance… more than fair, and she did nothing but torment him and never reveal her feelings until she had already broken mike… by then, he was understandably ****** at her.

you people supporting paulo and hating mike… are pure and utter ****ing TRASH. Furious Abbey

I honestly feel like paulo is one of the most realistic characters in terms of majority of teenage boys. Not all. But majority. Yes he is inlove with lucy however she is god knows where. Clearly he still loves her but why wait for what most likely will not be. If he has the chance to have fun or maybe fall for someone else i see no reasonwhy he should not.

yup January 29, 2014, 11:08 PM EST.

Comment ID #274038

I can see why you are angry about Paulo and I agree that some of the things that he has done is irrational, but if you look at it from his point of view, you can see he has had a hard life, not being one of the most stable financially, not growing up with a mom, and now that the person he loves is gone, he probably has lost it or gone to extreme depression…

He is probably confused and scared or something and does things he may or may not regret. Losing a loved one, (Not sure of Lucy’s condition), is very traumatic and can cause people to go over the edge, lose their sense of rationality, or death.

Poaulo is probably not into the losing rationality, but he clearly looks/looked depressed.

Paulo looks like he is in denial about the loss of Lucy and is clinging to Rachel for support, like what Lucy did when she thought Mike was dead. Paulo may not show it as easily as Lucy did with the melt down. They both went to second best. Paulo DID bang Rachel and Jessica when Lucy was around, but because David was being pretty harsh about it and being quite the jerk about it, like sex is everything in life.

What I’m trying to say is that we haven’t seen the real Paulo yet, just the depressed one, so you and other people should cut him some slack and wait around until he accepts what happens.
Also, not trying to harsh on you, but please stop calling people F***ers and trash because people don’t see on the same level as you..

Nuclear family systems do work against your paranoia Paulo. Normally both partners consent to being only with each other. Which generally avoids this sort of reaction over where the hell your love has been lately. (Unless they are skeevy liars and you suspect cheating, which ain’t every relationship)

Point Blank. Nuclear isn’t every relationship and it certainly isn’t only christians having them. They call it nuclear because it is standard guage that on average people have this type. Obviously not everyone fits in there. But considering you are being a whiny baby over your jealousy issues, go ahead and choose a nuclear relationship because it will make you feel better about where Rach has been and with whom.

Then maybe you’ll get some sleep at night because you obviously want monogamy. (Hopefully for you and Rachel. otherwise you’re an *** for holding her to standards you ain’t willing to commit to).

Even if Paulo did decide to ask Rachel to be in a relationship, who’s to say Rachel wants a relationship with Paulo? She’s got a very casual attitude about sex and doesn’t seem to want to be tied down.

“Please, she doesn’t wanna marry you. You’re a cat.”

Clearly, she’s doesn’t mind sharing!

She has other guys on her mind, too.

She doesn’t seem to take sex as seriously as a lot of my fellow readers, certainly:

I don’t know if Paulo and Rachel were ever meant to be. He’s cute, but she thinks lots of guys are cute. That’s the vibe I get.

Well sure she doesn’t. I’m just saying I think Paulo’s jealousy is coming from the fact that he wants her as just his. And looks horrified that she might be spending time with someone else, let alone banging someone else.

He can spit on nuclear values or whatever, but it seems like his fit means he does want that kind of relationship. Certainly being a hissy ***** is not really solving the fact that Rachel could, and might be, banging everyone as usual.

Eck. I think I hate more than half the cast in this comic now. Lucy was rude and a bully. Mike was kind but turned into a dick and don’t try to justify it. Paulo was “cool-kid” but now he’s just an immature player and a jerk. By the way not hating on the comic at all, just the characters. And hey, a person is allowed not to like characters, right? There certainly are a lot of Mike and Paulo haters out there.

:/ i dont think paulo should be hated for his actions. he just doesnt see how childish hes being. he just keeps hurting himself and in turn hurting everyone around him. he has one of those personalitys, it seems, where he is afraid to be without a companion and now that he sees that his current attatchment and source of comfort might be with someone else, it makes him uncomfortable. he should have thought things through. instead of going after lucy, who was emotionally unstable, he should have just stayed with jasmine. i think he needs some time to be single and not have “intimate companions”. that way he can get over lucy and get on with his life.

oddly enough, i think i had one friend who had the timing of David, and if I remember correctly.. said/did some of the same things. When reading this I can remember some of those days. Loving the art style change right now, and as such over the years, this change by far is a real breather, it reminds me a bit of a cartoon that i really enjoyed watching a lot of when I was younger. Keep up the good work Taeshi ^^

@ Tails I think paulo and David spying on Rachel and cool cat is a possibility. I hope paulo dose not blow his chance with Rachel. Paulo is being childish. Mostly with his comments to Jordan and mike. Things aren’t going his way so get mad and insult people. I wouldn’t be surprised if paulo threw a little tantrum in the hall because of what David said. You know after he is done having his fantasy of Rachel and cool cat getting it on in the library while looking for a book.
Rachel: I can’t reach that book on that shelf.
Cool Cat: here let me get that for you.
Rachel: ow thank you. Let’s go find a more private place so I can thank you with sex.
Cool Cat: sure!

Thanks for that image that i now got in my head xD
(i still think that Oreo is propably gay and Rachel will propably just use him to mess a bit with Paulos mind - we already know that she likes to do that ;) )

@ Tails yes it certainly is a possibility that Rachel is pulling paulos tail just to see him squirm a bit. But wouldn’t it make more sense for the cool cat to not be gay so he would actually be interested and make it seem more real. He was at Rachel’s party to I think?

Tails & @ Blue fox

I assume that Oreo Cat and Rachel are friends. They probably screwed a couple times. Wouldn’t surprise me. In the end, they thought they were better as friends than as lovers. That’s my guess.

As for Paulo: I think he just wants to feel important. More important than the countless guys that Rachel has screwed. He’s a little posessive, and a little hypocritical, but I think that he mostly just wants to be special. To stand out from the crowd. I’m not sure that he does for Rachel. If I’m right about Oreo Cat’s story, maybe it will click. If I’m right, he might see how he is basically Oreo Cat.

Of course, any prediction I make is likely to be wrong. Our benefactor Taeshi can be relied on to come up with a surprise twist that nobody expects. She’s far too smart for me. Any predictions I make must come with a disclaimer stating “Taeshi is better at this than I am.”
