@Chrisd765: It is more like a reluctant statement because she is conflicted between a part of her that still wants Mike and the part of her that loves Abbey while also being embarrassed about the whole thing.

@Taeshi GYAWD I wish I could do what you do. I don’t have the patience to be a real artist; every single one of these panels is a work of art that would take me weeks to finish.

Seriously, your comic art is beautiful, even a single panel is totally wall-worthy. :0

First panel: Use the force Daisy.
Stuff is going down between them, well Abbey should probably have been aware that Daisy Likes Mike very much but is willing to commit to her relationship. Although I haven’t reviewed the previous chapters but anyway….

Abbey’s face on the last panel, a very good facial expression, I like it.

Not only did she prove to be still attached to Mike, she also made things worse by previously implying a certain desire to be intimate with Abbey. He must feel awfully used right now.

Wtf? So she still has feelings for Mike, why are people suggesting she break up with Abbey? Just because she likes Mike doesn’t mean she’s going to be unfaithful. If she loves Abbey and stays faithful, everything is good.

Comment ID #274405

Forgive me for seeing something that makes me a little uneasy, but there’s something to the left of Daisy’s head in the first panel that I can’t identify, and it’s making my imagination run away with what it might be… is it an eye? Is it a closed fist of some kind…?

jhornb02 February 5, 2014, 1:43 PM EST.

Comment ID #274406

I find it hilarious how many people are hating on Daisy for things Abbey already knew before confessing his attraction.

He knew how much Mike meant to her—he even confronted Mike, outraged, for not being more respectful of her feelings. And Daisy never actually had a real chance to express her broken heart. AND she was drunk.

The idea that she is using him for sexual purposes is also pretty far-fetched. I mean, really, she’s what, a sophomore now? Fifteen or sixteen? Hormones, everybody—we have them. And never underestimate the sex drive of a goody two-shoes lol

And hopefully, Abbey will realize (or @Taeshi will make him realize lol) that Daisy did give up on an expensive and awesome (by idea, not by experience) vacation invite from Tess all so she may be with Abbey throughout his therapy (and that was before they were even going out).

Seriously, guys, you have a genuinely good girl here who barely received the attention almost any girl would want, and you’re beating her down for finally sharing how she feels.

Comment ID #274408

My dislike of Daisy intensifies.


Of course Abbey knows, but they’ve dated for what, a year? If she still isn’t over it (a long-time never reciprocated crush), Abbey SHOULD dump her. He’s her boyfriend! If he doesn’t have her affections still after this time, he is wasting his time.

I think Daisy is thinking of using Abbey for sex. And its sad because Abbey is obviously really uneasy with the idea. He’s giving off vibes like he takes it seriously, and not casual. So he cares. Until he’s okay Daisy needs to chill out. Hormones are not an excuse to pressure someone.

Abbey feels cheated because he thought it was her feelings, not libido, that was making her get a little pushy into the “should we or shouldn’t we?” And well, good for him for being angry. I know I’d feel cheapened if my love was after me but hung up emotionally on another.

If she is dating Abbey, she needs to not be wishing he was Mike. She really is leading Abbey on.

Lickit&stickit February 5, 2014, 1:55 PM EST.

Comment ID #274409

So that suddenly gives her a free ride for openly hitting on Mike whenever possible?
That’s not how it works, Abbey is in every right to be ****** at her for not being able to stick to what she has, instead of continuously going after what she can’t get right in-front of him.
Time for Daisy to get her priorities straightened out, or it is game-over.between her and Abbey.

I think you guys missed the part where she was drunk.

Hunnikitty February 5, 2014, 2:04 PM EST.

Comment ID #274411


Alcohol is never an excuse to be a **** person or ******** to other people you care about. And if you think otherwise, you need better priorities. Or a lesson in taking responsibility that you shouldn’t have been wasted.

Stop making excuses. Daisy had complete control to not get drunk and she has complete control to get over Mike if she wants to.

Abbey has complete reason to dump her over all of this if he wants.

Lickit&stickit February 5, 2014, 2:06 PM EST.

Comment ID #274412

I’m not making excuses. I’m making real-world observations.

For instance, she had these feelings for Mike since she was very young. These feelings were held onto for years. If you guys seriously think that she should be able to get over those feelings within a year, then you clearly haven’t had much experience in love and relationships.

It’s not all perfect like you want it to be. It almost never is.

Feelings over a guy she didn’t spend much time with and has made it constantly clear he doesn’t return affections? A guy she literally just crushed on from afar?

YES. She should get over it. It was nothing. She HAD nothing with him. Not even friendship really because Mike was always yelling at her for having feelings for him.

So it is completely reasonable for Abbey to have expected her to be over it. Especially since she’s with him now.

Electro February 5, 2014, 2:13 PM EST.

Comment ID #274416

Not really. That part didn’t happen until Abbey said something to Mike. And then she tried to move on and ended up being with Abbey.

I am actually speaking from personal experience, having loved someone for seven years who only acknowledged his lack of feelings for me within that final year. I’m currently with someone and sometimes, yes, I do think back to that other guy. I can’t help it, being a human and all.

What I speak from is personal experience. You?

So she doesn’t remember anything? What about Mike’s confession? Just Abbey? Eh?

GingerPaws February 5, 2014, 2:13 PM EST.

Comment ID #274419


You speak because you feel that it would be hypocritical to tell her to get over it, when you struggle with it.

And it’s not the same, Mike has always been very clear that he did not like Daisy.

Having been with someone who was not over their ex, YES. You shouldn’t be dating someone else and added more mess to the mix if you haven’t emotionally moved on.

If you aren’t ready, take some responsibility for it, along with general respect for the new person, and stop dating until you are ready to stop pinning over someone else.

These are all things a good friend would do. Daisy is using Abbey for her insecurity issues (and possibly in hopes of sex/growing up faster so that people see her as older), but she isn’t a complete heartless person.

Lickit&stickit February 5, 2014, 2:19 PM EST.

Comment ID #274424

Honestly, Lickit, if that is how you really feel, then you either don’t know what love is, or have had no experience in the field. It’s not easy to get over.

It’s not all sunshine and rainbows. Not everything fits into your fantasy image. The real world is not how you think it should be, or it would be pretty grand.

I developed real love for the person I am with. I merely sympathize with Daisy. I also sympathize with Abbey, cuz I had also been in his shoes.

Just because I disagree with you doesn’t mean I don’t know what I’m talking about.

If you say so, although I’m not really feeling “made fun of”. Mostly feeling like someone who goes outside and interacts with the real world. But whatever helps you sleep at night.

You could also show me that you are aware I do know something than attacking me and acting like I’m a bad person because I do know how reality works. You haven’t made much points against me, just angry ones.

Ya know, I don’t really feel that bad for abbey, he started going out with daisy knowing that she liked mike (at least a little bit), and he should know better than to just block himself off from her like he is because of something she said while drunk. I mean come on, I know I say stupid things when I’m skunked XD I feel sad for Daisy because of how he’s attacking her right now :/

Jae Wolf February 5, 2014, 2:31 PM EST.

Comment ID #274432


Honestly, I was going for logically as why Daisy shouldn’t do this to Abbey. It’s wrong because she leading someone else on and willingly hurting them in doing so. It makes her very selfish and inconsiderate.

Your only argument is, “She’s human so she’s allowed.” And “Love isn’t perfect, so too damn bad if someone gets hurt over our long crush confusion.”

Those are terrible agreements.

And I sleep fine at night with my partner, thank you. Let’s not pretend you know anything about me other than my thoughts here.

Huh? February 5, 2014, 2:33 PM EST.

Comment ID #274434

Actually, I was more or less showing empathy towards her. I mean, most of you have sat here and attacked her, so here I am, offering you guys legitimate reasons as to why you should take it easy. You’ve blatantly ignored all she’s done for him, and clearly do not understand what alcohol does to someone (not telling you to go find out, either).

As for me pretending how I know you work, you originally attacked me and how I work because I told you why I could personally sympathize with Daisy.

Pretty hypocritical, don’t you think?

I just pointed out why you probably empathize with her, based on your own given description. It was more of an observation based on your given information than attack.

And there you go telling me, “But you don’t UNDERSTAND,” because I disagree with you. Both now, on alcohol consumption and leading someone on.

Helping someone does not give you the right to do something hurtful later.

Daisy has done a lot for Abbey, but that doesn’t just her continuous pinning for Mike. These are separate issues and should be treated as such.


I’ve given up trying to explain anything about my thoughts to you a long time ago. :P We probably stand on completely different ideologies.

No no, hunni. Pay attention. I meant with leading him on, not being drunk.

Her conversations all about Mike was a social embarrassment, but it revealed the underlying issue that she isn’t over Mike. THAT is what’s afoot.

We see her here, unconvincing saying that it was a good thing see didn’t kiss Mike. It had nothing to do with alcohol making her say things she didn’t mean.

Lickit&stickit February 5, 2014, 2:44 PM EST.

Comment ID #274441

Then tell me how she was leading him on and I will genuinely listen and try to understand your point.

SPOILER: if it is a poor point, I will make it clear.

EDIT (cuz you edited yours):

Feelings of genuine love for someone is hard to get over. She did seem worried about the idea of her kissing him. I caught that much, but you haven’t. Upon retrospect, she probably did kinda hope she did, but is trying her hardest to be a good girlfriend. This is a thing that happens.

Upon retrospect on her part, not mine. I noticed that much too.

Comment ID #274444


You just have low standards for what you expect out of people. Anything goes!


Actually I’d say that was more in favor of my point with her wishful thinking on the subject. But I digress.

I will not excuse her behavior, because I do not think it is acceptable to be dating someone when you have obvious feelings for someone else. It is selfish and down right disrespectful to the feelings of the person you are dating. It is acceptable to expect the person you are with to only have romantic feelings towards you.

In my experience, it is normal. And if they don’t dump them. You obviously don’t suit each other.

But therein lies the problem. Your little personal quip tells me that you think it’s okay. So we won’t ever agree on it. That’s fine, we can agree to disagree.


Thank you.

@hunnikitty: The fact that they are boyfriend and girlfriend. The fact that she pressured him for sex. The fact that she’s told him “I love you”. Yeah, she totally didn’t lead Abbey into thinking she’s over Mike, fo’ sure.

And yeah, i totally butted in :3

Yelikarts February 5, 2014, 2:59 PM EST.

Comment ID #274447

Actually, at no point did I say it was okay. Hell, even I feel bad sometimes. However, my boyfriend is more understanding than Abbey is being (probably because he’s a real person in the real world experiencing real life).

The point I was making where I connected her to me is that sometimes, there’s gonna be someone who you may always love, but that doesn’t mean you can’t try to move on.

The other point I was making is that Abbey asked HER out, aware of her strong feelings for Mike. He set himself up for this heartache. She was merely trying to move on.

EDIT: and at no point did I say he does not have the right to dump her or be upset. These were all very obvious feelings she had throughout the entirety of their relationship. He saw it more than she did, and he chose to stay. He could have left at any point. She’s still trying.

Hunnikitty February 5, 2014, 3:00 PM EST.

Comment ID #274448

You’ve shown you delusional tendencies plenty atimes.

Then Daisy shouldn’t have rushed into another relationship if she can’t drop her lost cause feelings for Mike.
But she did, and now she better swallow that bitter pill and drop it now, Or abbey’s gonna drop her, since she still treats him as second best and doesn’t even hide that she would drop him in a heartbeat if there was even a slim chance with Mike.

Lax February 5, 2014, 3:02 PM EST.

Comment ID #274449

Lax, I agree agree with you. She did go in pretty fast. I waited at least a year to move on. But she probably wanted to move on faster. Heartbreak does that to some people. It happens to a LOT of people. And more times than you think, it ends well. If this doesn’t, then it doesn’t, but that happens.

Hunnikitty February 5, 2014, 3:05 PM EST.

Comment ID #274450

@Hunnikitty and @Lickit&stickit

Please… calm down a little? Hunni yes being drunk can affect the way a person acts and you are right on that part but Lick is right by saying that doing something nice doesn’t give you the right to do something bad latter.

It is true that sometimes people use other people to patch their insecurities (Lick said it, and I have seen it happen in real life).

But really the world is not Black and White, it’s full of shades of gray. Yes, one can have sympathy for Daisy, you don’t have to outright hate her for one mistake, but having sympathy does not mean you have to overlook her mistakes.

The fact is she did something wrong and no matter all the good things she did she needs to mend it. Abbey can’t just forgive her if she hasn’t even recognized what happened and at least promised to fix it.

I feel sorry for Daisy, she probably didn’t realize what she was doing, but she needs to stop acting like a baby and confront her issues, if she really wants to ever grow up.

So you both have good points. Nobody (exept Taeshi) is inside Daisy’s head so both of you could be totally wrong or totally right, I am inclined to believe you both have made true statements and speculations. So in the end neither is completely wrong or right, just live with it. You shouldn’t fight just because you have different points of view, accept it and move on. This is starting to look like a battle field.

EDIT: You guys write too fast for me to keep up. D:

She made the point to get condoms over and over “JUST IN CASE”. In the end, she was the one who decided not to go through with it.

Hunnikitty February 5, 2014, 3:08 PM EST.

Comment ID #274452

Its not exactly uncommon to say something really stupid when you get shitfaced drunk, there are worse things she could’ve said or done and while Abbey has a right to be hurt, he should also acknowledge that she wasn’t exactly in her right mind at the time the things were said. That’s like saying giving consent while you are drunk is still consent when its not really.

Hahaha see, I avoid the very obvious fact that they are dating and in a relationship because then I’d get a lecture on how, “everyone is different lickit! We can’t make any assumptions on decent human courtesy in relationships!”

Sure. But the only reason it’s even being talked about is because one party in the comic is obviously having an issue with exactly what I’m talking about. The case makes it relevant.

Guys when it comes to love and experiences with love, relationships … point of views regarding it and the experiences that lead to it, are not set in stone. It’s different for everyone. It doesn’t mean people have less experience or not, and even so, so what? People process things differently.

As for my own observation toward Abbey and Daisy … being drunk is no excuse but it really does change you, and for some, loosen lips. She messed up and doesn’t even remember it and continues to do so. Whether it’s right or wrong to be with someone when you still have a crush … that’s personal opinion, but this is a communication problem. Abbey is withholding on his feelings and what has happened and Daisy said to much with the help of booze. They can sort this out if both are willing to, and that’s what matters in the end … working out these kinks. If they can’t do this much, then they aren’t ready to be in a serious relationship, neither one of them. It doesn’t have to end their relationship or spoil it, but whether it does or not, is on them, and how they choose to deal with this hiccup.

About Abbey knowing of Daisy’s feelings for Mike and still going out with her: Let’s face it, love is BLIND! Very, very often people see only what they want to see. It’s possible that Abbey was blinded by his feelings for Daisy and didn’t realize the kind of problems she was having. I knew a guy that dated this girl that outright treated him like TRASH, but he liked her so much he was just like “oh she was just in a bad mood, she is more sweet.” when all of us could clearly see the girl was a witch. When they broke up he finally opened his eyes, all of us where like “Finally!!!”. He was blinded and no matter how obvious it was that she wronged him several times he just didn’t see it.

On a side note: I agree with Canny

The more I relook over this page the more I feel that Abbey needs to take a walk and cool off while Daisy needs to stop talking while she’s ahead. … Feelings are about to be hurt more than what already is, if both don’t decide to step away from the topic right after this.

People seem to think that Daisy shouldn’t be with anyone until she’s over Mike. But how long will that take? A year? Five? Ten? Should she just stay lonely forever because she can’t resolve a feeling she has no control over?
Daisy has done the best she can with a difficult, and probably painful, situation. She’s done amazingly well. In fact, I think the only reason Abbey is as upset as he is about her drunken babble is because it’s incredibly easy to upset a 15-year-old. I mean, that and the whole “family destroyed by adultery” thing.

What about the person she willingly hurts when they find out their relationship is overshadowed and a joke because she’s still wishing they were Mike? They should just shut up and deal with it when they find out. Can’t have Daisy lonely for a second.

Also, I think Daisy will be over Mike once she’s out of high school and you know moves away like from him as most people do at college age.


I’m not a “things just seem to keep happening” person. We have a lot more control over what happens to us than we are willing to admit. Daisy has control of her emotions and she can take steps to get over it. She also can control whether or not she sorts her **** out before she dates someone else other than Mike.

@Hunnikitty and @Lickit: Thank you :love: Some fun conversations at last. Since @buchay aint here i guess you can replace him for awhile Hunni :/

Just wanted to tell you that alchohol is no excuse. You may not be able to control your self but alchohol makes you do what you personally want to do. It makes you tell the truth (your pretty much unable to lie) for an instance. But it also clouds your judgement so Daisy wasn’t aware that she was hurting Abbey. But none the less she did make her feelings a bit clear (or clearer if you prefer that :/ ).

I mostly agree with you.

I agree with you ;)

21, and yes. Like most people, I’ve been like Daisy pinning over crushes. Probably through a good chunk of my own high school and portion of college. That’s probably why I don’t pity her for being unable to get over her “one-time-never-reciprocated-crush”. She can do better.

Often once you step away from your infatuation, you realize that they really weren’t that great. But you won’t realize that unless you do a little soul-searching in single hood. And at minimum avoiding that person you were blinded by for awhile. Keeping Mike as her friend isn’t helping her.

Ah, see, I am also 21, but the difference is that I’ve been on BOTH ends.

As I keep saying, repeatedly, almost like a broken record, I am providing empathy. Clearly, most of you have empathy towards Abbey and Abbey alone. I have empathy towards both, but took it upon myself to try and explain Daisy’s feelings or why you guys shouldn’t paint such a dark picture of her.

You’re the ones turning every single thing I’ve said into something it’s not, and from what you’ve admitted, I can assume it’s purely out of scorn.

And Daisy’s “crush” was quite clearly more than a crush.

To the replacing @buchay thing. I only said that because it used to be buchay that argued with Lickit. But now since he’s ”missing” (He just hasn’t commented for a long time) your the one who is now arguing with Lickit. So it was just a joke.

No, I’ve been similar to Daisy in relationships (pinned and insecurity). And I’ve been Abbey too, overshadowed by someone else. But unlike Daisy I didn’t selfishly bring other people into my delusions as emotional cushions where they would get hurt by my lack of feelings.

That’s why I don’t pity her. I don’t empathize with her decisions because I care more about people than I care about not being lonely for awhile. If other people showed that kind of consideration, everyone would be happier and treat their friends better.

She can do better. She is being selfish. Scorn has nothing to do with it.

And what exactly did she “say” about Mike that you couldn’t forget? Nothing that made you feel inferior, I hope, Abbey.
I like how Daisy’s first thought or hope, heh, is that she might’ve possibly kissed Mike in her drunken stupor. She mad a good recovery though, when Abbey made that face of his (not that he really has any other face).
Daisy is cute, but I can see how some people see her as self-centered, not that Abbey is a saint himself. Sometimes I wonder if Abbey should be in school or if he should be trained as a CIA operative; guy’s a little on the stone cold side.

Never thought Abbey would get sick of Daisy. But I expected something like this would happen. The start of their relationship didn’t seem very… mutual, like Daisy felt bad for Abbey and just settled for him.

Still not a nice thing to do of Daisy though.

Lickit, do you not remember her developing real feelings for Abbey at all, or what? :question: I’m serious, here, cuz I feel there’s a lot you’re ignoring.

And as I and some others seem to realize, sometimes it’s impossible to move on.

As far as I can tell, she isn’t really using him as a crutch. It may look that way right now, but that’s because she’s still trying to get over Mike, so obviously people are gonna assume otherwise. Just by going on what kind of person she was throughout the entire series, I just don’t see that being her intent.

And all the more power to you for having that self control, but it may have jaded your view on how people work.

EDIT: Keep in mind, not everyone thinks like you or me. That’s why some people are agreeing with you, and some with me, and some with both lol

Finally! No offense to all who love AbbeyXDaisy but their relationship seemed a little too perfect. Abbey and Daisy’s relationship seems a little more authentic now instead of the “perfect couple.” Every relationship has a little drama, however I’m not saying I want them to fight. Couples fight but they also accept each other for their flaws and move forward, but this IS High School here… so a lot of adolescent drama is in store. :smirk:

@Stickit and @Hunni

holy potatos you guys are keeping this up for a while.

1: Not everyone works the same way
2: Stop the passive aggressive ad hominem attacks that seem to pop up a little. What’s up with that
3: Being drunk is not an excuse. If you drink n’ drive, it’s still your fault. Revealing her feelings is the issue here, as she has somewhat confirmed she still likes Mike that way.

She’s in a monogamous relationship with Abby, and admits to still liking a guy she had a crush on about a year prior.

That is the problem here. You can relate to either side, neither are evil. But Daisy still screwed up. Abby is upset, and it doesn’t matter if he’s “in the right” by doing so. He’s upset that he still may be a ‘second fiddle’ even after all this time. She didn’t mention Abby at all in her drunken rant, her mind was all about Mike.

What does Daisy’s letting Abby know about her feelings matter? It could just be her deluding herself and Abby. It doesn’t matter in this case unless things are clearly communicated

tl;dr, stop arguing about whether anyone’s justified because that’s beside the purpose.
Fact: Everything went to crap because Abby thinks he’s a ‘replacement’ due to Daisy’s speech


(Also I’ve been on both sides of this too, before we start the attacks on me too. Abby’s side first, then Daisy’s except the previous Daisy was the reason why I was being a Daisy. Such is life)

And Abbey definitely needs to talk to Daisy about how he’s making her feel instead of letting it grow and consume him and allowing her to continue with behavior that obviously upsets him.

I seriously think they’re both at fault here. As I keep saying (I don’t know how many times I have to say this) I was merely providing an empathetic defense for Daisy because she’s getting so much hate from all the readers.

Comment ID #274506

To be fair we’ve never really had any indication that Daisy’s feelings went beyond “really really liking” him. She does her best to be a “good girlfriend”, but even as far back as Mischief Night, she would still fuss over Mike - even if Abbey was in tow, which wasn’t all THAT long after they hooked up. Abbey should of been her sole interest at that time.

It’s one thing to be good at your “role”, but Daisy’s dedication to Abbey is simply because she felt strongly that he needed someone to support him. Which in itself is not a bad thing, Daisy’s doing what she knows best, which is cheering people on and supporting them. But it’s not quite the same as loving someone. I think the closest we’ve seen to actual affection was when he visited his mothers grave and she kind of held him a bit. Otherwise Daisy’s been more his personal cheerleader than a lover really. Heck it’s a pretty chaste “innocent” relationship as romantic affairs go. Daisy only wanted to jump Abbey’s bones because she felt some obligation to take the next step, plus a selfish desire to show herself as “grown up”.

As they say, sometimes the road to hell is paved with good intentions, Daisy’s desire to be there for Abbey is genuine, but she’s never truly grown to love him in the way she loved Mike. Till now everything has been simple and easy for them. Mostly because they took the easy road of revelling in their rather innocent relationship and avoiding problems like Mike for the most part. It’s possible that this COULD be Daisy’s wake up call and she realizes that she needs to let Mike go, but I can’t see this working out well for Abbey even if she does get over Mike. Not when her first possible concern is if she kissed her old crush.

Heck this means she can’t even remember Mikes confession, punching Abbey in the groin and stabbing him in the arm. She inflicted so much hurt on Abbey that night, no wonder he’s so irritated that she can’t remember any of it! He’s likely been waiting for Daisy to remember and say something, but because she remembers none of it, that never came. Abbey being Abbey, rather than bring it up, he tried avoiding the issue, but now Daisy’s pushed the point, it has to be addressed.

Comment ID #274507

Jeez Daisy.. Really?
Okay well I’m not completely on either side of this, again obviously Abbey knew going into this relationship that Daisy wasn’t completely over Mikey, on the other side Daisys infatuation with Mikey seems to be still very real and going a bit far at this point, so I understand why Abbeys getting upset at this point,
But really, again it just seems like Daisy is almost leading Abbey on at this point.. Even though it’s evident that she cares for him deeply, are her feelings truly as romantic for him as Abbeys are for her? Her fantasies about Mike don’t really help either..
Guess we’ll have to just watch and see what happens.

I like to pick on the one obviously flawed side that stands out to me and hammer away at the arguments that try to contradict it.

Its more fun that way. *shifty eyes*

Well to be FAIR to Daisy, yuck, Abbey should have brought this up the evening after, but maybe he thought she’d just apologize. And when she didn’t he got all mopey and sad. Then he realized that he needs to address it, which he is now so I don’t see much fault on him for this conflict.

In other news, props to whoever pointed out that her first thought, instead of feeling for Abbey and I dunno, apologizing for herself, was whether or not she kissed Mike.

Whoa! What’s with all of the intense arguments with the comic fans? And whats with all of the character hate? “Blah blah Daisy is a hoe bag! Blah blah someone punch Abbey in the face!” Abbey and Daisy are both right and both wrong at the same time. Im not going to get into how both characters are because, well everyone has already stated how, MANY TIMES. Abbey and Daisy have barely started their conversation, everybody chill. This is a comic about teenagers with DRAMATIC love stories. They are most likely going to get in an argument and break up, then realize how much they love each other and miss each other and get back together two chapters now.

am I the only person who thinks Daisy isn’t reacting badly here?
She doesn’t look disappointed that she didn’t kiss Mike to me - she looks MORTIFIED.
at this point, she still isn’t aware of exactly what she did. I read her hesitating “g-good” as her thinking “Oh god, what did I do!?”
Daisy cares a lot about what people think of her, and the revelation that she “said a lot about Mike” has obviously given her the “oh crap” feeling.
I think Daisy still has a wee crush on Mike, but she doesn’t deliberately act on it - both times we have seen her squee over Mike have been kinda involuntary - once while asleep, and again while drunk. However, this doesn’t excuse her actions, but it isn’t like she’s rubbing Mike in Abbeys face.
Daisy has been through A LOT with Abbey, and the way she blushes about him and obviously wants to spend a lot of time to him says that she does care about him a lot - I’m not sure whether its love, but its definitely a strong romantic affection.
I really hope this doesn’t take the easy way out with them breaking up after everything they’ve been through together. They’re strong enough to get through this, and I would like to see Daisy mature as a result.

I feel like Daisy is being very inconsiderate here. She seemed crestfallen that she didn’t kiss Mike in her drunken stupor. She certainly is sober now and doesn’t seem to give much of a **** about her so-called ‘boyfriend’ and his feelings. At least TRY to hide your very obvious feelings for Mike. Have some respect for your ‘boyfriend’ at the very least. Apologize! It’s said when you’re drunk and your inhibitions have been lowered you speak your true feelings. You like Mike. Please show Abbey some respect like a decent human being and at the very least apologize to him and respect whatever choice he makes now.

U guise

Using personal experience to argue over a comic.. Is not a good thing…
Why reveal things about your personal life to strangers who could use it against you? Dx


Opinions are just opinions.
Opinions are all biased in some way.
But your personal experience doesn’t make either of these kids right or wrong.

Abbey has a right to be upset, and Daisy has a right to want sex in a year-long relationship. They’ll work this out, and make their own mistakes. We just get to enjoy watching it happen. Yelling at each other won’t change anything…
In the end, we’re all just human beings who love the same comic made by the beautiful and talented @Taeshi, with help from the man who loves her, @Suitcase. Can’t we all agree to disagree with the characters and just hug it out and appriciate how beautiful the comic is? It’s a work of art and a work of love. And a work of sadness. I’m referring to Tae and Suit here, not just the characters. They both work hard on it, they’ve been working through their personal sadness in not being able to see each other for such a long time, to make nice things for us, to bring beauty from the pain. It’s bittersweet.

Nobody is wrong or right.
Love each other okay u.u

@Some Brit: Daisy actually seems very conflicted here between the part of herself that still likes Mike and the part of her that loves Abbey because she has tried very hard to move past Mike because he never liked her that way - the problem with that is that Mike has never given closure to the situation. Regardless of how many times she has asked, he has never told her why he loved Lucy over her so there has essentially never been a definite reason given to her that would allow her to say ‘I can never be with Mike’.

And speaking your true feelings when you are drunk is possible, but it is also entirely possible for you to outright lie and pretend to be someone you definitely are not. Lowered inhibitions mean you aren’t being inhibited from telling your true feelings, but you also aren’t inhibited from fabricating a bunch of nonsense e.g. that you are a lion tamer.

And they both have some things to think over, discuss and decide on. For Abbey, the decision is whether to continue the relationship and the discussion has to be about how Daisy feels about Mike and how they could move forward.

For Daisy, it is whether Mike still means more to her than Abbey as well as whether it is fair to continue the relationship that she has to decide on and she really has to discuss her feelings about Mike because they are obviously still there and they are getting in the way of her relationship with Abbey.

Oh, Daisy wants to tame “loins” not lions.

Abbey just won’t let her :D

Ba dum. Psssshhhhhhh


Yeah I’m not too worried about stranger danger unless I’m giving them my address or bank account. Furthermore, while Daisy has her rights to intimacy emotionally, it may not be there for her yet in the law. I mean she’s only like what, 14? I suppose it depends on if BCB world has consent age rules. D:

Either way, I hope she doesn’t actually try to play that card. Like trying to tell Abbey she wants sex, so therefore she loves him. It’d be a really sad argument coming from a 14 year old.

THANK YOU! Finally someone being reasonable Yes it wrong to think about someone else while you’re seeing someone else. BUT she has never EVER lead him on he came into this eyes open thinking he could change/fix everything, and they’ve just bubble gumed along without actually being mature enough to sit down and talk about this. They’re both at fault here, and while I do feel for Abbey I have a hard time feeling worse for either of them since they’re both being bone heads about this whole thing (which is just typical teenage inexperience).

I really think they should break up because they’re both too immature for this and Abbey REALLY needs to get a hold on his anger. He may not be anything like his father but he’s already dropping hints he could very well be headed that way. He almost hit his sister for an immature silly comment, he yanked Daisy away from Paulo when she was only helping him with school work, and he’s holding a grudge over a hug and a question. They’re still young but between the two his issues are the most worrying. They of course may be able to communicate and work this out and hopefully move forward in a good way, having a fight isn’t the issue its how you deal with it that can make or break the whole thing.


You seem to be speaking from spite or something else because we’ve yet to see any “lying” here. What we have seen however is that they have terrible communication skills, and that they’ve been relatively ignoring or side stepping most of their issues. Daisy is a normal teenager just like him sexual urges are normal then, the only reason Abbey probably doesn’t want to is because of his background and possible insecurity with their relationship. However I am glad he didn’t just go with it and ignore everything thats going on. He obviously has a right to be angry and feel hurt but ignoring the problem, refusing to talk about it and crying by himself won’t solve a darn thing. Even dumping her passive aggressively without explaining whats wrong obviously won’t make him feel better. As much as I think they should break up Daisy has been great for him, and he her they’ve both used/benefited from the other in a positive way. And while yes a friend could indeed do similar its completely different when the person you love and care about does it, it just means so much more. I don’t see where you’re projecting Daisy being this horrible **** from though. Had she got with him not mentioned Mike or her feelings for him at all, and started flirting/trying to get with him behind Abbeys back I could understand. But… when has she done that? Dreams aren’t exactly something you can control, she obviously likes him more then Mike but she hasn’t pursued it, and EVEN when slobbering drunk she did NOT make a move on him or hit on him. She mearly asked a question, and supported him when everyone else seemed ready ( - Paulo he actually did attack him) ready to jump all over him. Yes she does like Mike more then Abbey but good grief she’s LOVED Mike for what about 7 years if not more? Not everyone is like you and automatically realizes how silly and pointless a one sided love is, and not everyone especially teens handles romantic situations the same. Personally I think she should have left the table when Mike rejected her and made new friends so she could put the whole thing behind her. But I can still understand why she choose to take a chance with someone who knew her whole story and still wanted to be with her anyway. Honestly I really liked Abbey till now but I can see he’s no where near as mature as he pretends to be. I just wanna see how Taeshi handles this and if they both realize who immature they really are.

Why does everyone always think I see Daisy as a **** when I mention not liking her?

Just because you think a 14-year old should cool it until their reluctant boyfriend is emotionally ready, is not any sort of ****-shaming on Daisy. Hell that’s common sense.

Daisy needs to stop being an inconsiderate human being by using Abbey as an emotional cushion while see pins over Mike. And YES. Look at the past two chapters to see evidence of her still drooling over Mike. Hell look up at the page. (And no that doesn’t make her a ****, just a selfish jerk to her boyfriend)

I also find it weird that everyone is talking about Daisy being in-love with someone she never even really spent much one-on-one time with. I find that hard to believe. It’s just a long time one-sided childhood crush. She hasn’t been in love with Mike for 7 years, gosh guys she would have been 7!

What kind of 7 year old actually dates? Or wants to? They don’t even have hormones at that age! When I was 12 in the 7th grade people would jokingly name someone they thought was cute to be their boyfriend at lunch. But that isn’t dating of any kind guys! D: And Daisy and Mike were never like that either.

I never said you were **** shaming at all, you DID however say more then once that you think Daisy is just using him for sex. Her drooling isn’t flirting she didn’t make jokes/allude to anything with him, she hasn’t been overly touchy, and she hasn’t tried to make any moves. She is very very wrong for still caring more about Mike then Abbey, and for not talking to Abbey about it. However how ISN’T Abbey doing the exact same thing (using her an emotional cushion)? Didn’t she support him emotionally when he got therapy? When he found out about his mom? When he had a break down? For that matter isn’t he just subconsciously using her as a replacement mother? Or I should say could he have pursued her as way to subconsciously save his “mother” from a potentially sad/abusive existence ( the whole Abbey/Mike situation)?

I don’t think what shes doing is “ok” but it is normal and many times turns out just fine. I also can’t 100% blame her because he knew the situation fully, she did not hide it from him, she is actively trying move on with Abbey, and they are so young. Neither of them is blameless man they BOTH should have talked about this before hand. If she did something that bothered him he should have calmly talked about it, she should have asked him how he feels about things, put herself in his shoes etc. Neither of them for what we’ve seen have done anything like this (except the very beginning and it was pretty shallow then).

I dunno why you think its so weird unless you’ve never experienced puppy love. Its pretty intense and usually as a kid its innocent you just want to be with/around the person all the time etc etc. And its not like this was some crush from afar they were actually friends, he was nice etc she just obviously took this thing waaaaay too far in her own mind. And because they stayed friends and he never gave her any closure (or she never found any herself) then she has a hard time letting it go.

Btw let me be clear I do think Daisy is wrong what shes doing is NOT ok at all, but can’t take a side here. Having been on both sides they’re both doing this whole thing wrong lol. I think its probably like what you said, he wanted to tell her but thought she remembered and would apologize but now maybe he’s been brooding because he thought she didn’t care.

I dunno I was pretty similar to you on that one I never thought much about it other then I liked him and wanted to trade bugs and be friends or something. I did know lots of other little kids who thought they needed to get married, I think it has a lot to do with movies, tv and what they’re exposed to at home. Just like most small kids don’t think about sex but ones who have been exposed to it do I guess it just depends.


I dunno I think it makes people more likely to be honest or to just be open but…. Some people lie and say whatever when drunk. It lowers inhibitions yes but I dunno about honesty.

Daisy is just holding on to Abbey for a back up. She needs to move the **** on. Mike is beyond her as to paulo sees her as his sister. It’s not ment to be. As Lucy said abbey is probably about as close to mike as she is going to get.

Wei February 6, 2014, 3:05 AM EST.

Comment ID #274552


I suppose I need to clarify then. See, I say Daisy is using him because he is not her main man that she wishes she was dating. Her real feelings are with Mike. Gosh knows what reason because Mike is taken. Yet, even now as her first concern on the page is over kissing Mike rather than Abbey’s feelings. (Hence the eye-roll from Abbey and her disappointed, then half-hearted G-good)

So if Daisy doesn’t actually like Abbey romantically the most, what IS her purpose with Abbey?

Possibly to be there for him as a friend, definitely to help distract her from her Mike delusions. Maybe also to stave off her off “fluffy” insecurities since this one guy is smitten with her (and in her mind didn’t lose affections in comparison to Daisy finding out about Augustus and Lucy talking more). And more recently, to prove that she isn’t a baby to her peers by sleeping with Abbey and probably telling everyone about it (Like she did with Paulo).

At the current moment if anything did happen, she would just be using him, because it certainly would have little to do with her actual romantic feelings which are hung up on someone else.

Now whether is not this makes her a ****, if she uses Abbey this way, is up to the viewer. I personally don’t think that makes her a ****, though someone else might feel differently. I think it makes her just really inconsiderate to Abbey who is emotionally invested and didn’t know otherwise until now. If any crass words where used to describe Daisy, I’d say it was selfish-bitch behavior if she goes through with it.

It’s cool, normally when I express dislike of a character’s actions, people get a tad upset.

I think Daisy just has a lot of growing up to do, and if Abbey ditching her makes her more considerate to future people, let her learn from it so she stops acting this way. I think Abbey is way further along than she is in their relationship for the most part. His deal is he gets a little jealous.

@Lickit & Jonas

Bitterness is an emotion that all humans feel, her comments (at first) sounded like she was speaking from a place of past bitterness. I dunno why people today have a problem with acknowledging negative emotions (unless it fits their tumblr humanitarian goals). It was not a swipe at her, her character, or her life experiences it was simply an observation of the overall tone. Annnnnd I’m pretty sure she doesn’t hate Daisy we’ve talked about Daisy before, we’re simply having a disagreement here (we’ve actually agreed on a lot of things too) I’m pretty sure neither of us is raging upset about it. I think shes being a little harsh on Daisy thats pretty much it, are people here just not used to discussing comic pages and disagreeing? Calm down lol I think yall are so used to Buchy that you think anyone disagreeing must be fueled by rage.

Ok well I agree with you then for the most part I was misunderstanding you a bit. Though I DO think she likes him/is interested romantically, its kinda hard to describe though? Its like tiers of love I guess, Mike is on a slightly higher tier compared to Abbey? Daisy doesn’t seem like she’d want to deliberately use/hurt anyone but yeah shes inadvertently doing that a lot. I think if they actually communicated and either she left the table or Mike finally answered her question (probably very bluntly so she could realize how stupid shes being) she’d be able to grieve and let him go. In fact its kinda bizzare that she DIDN’T leave the table and go away esp if she loved him as much as she seems to? I dunno it could be her childishness and immaturity and keeps her thinking she needs him to tell her why before she can leave. Maybe they’ll leave after they have a talk about it? But Taeshi seems determined to keep the group together so I dunno.

What if Daisy is not strong as Abbey thinks? What if she can’t remember what happens and is not in propose? What if she asked if she kissed Mike because… well… He is so angry, what could have she done with Mike? We should be happy she didn’t ask if she did sex with Mikey. Oh, yeah, about sex. Really? You guys thinks she is using him for sex? REALLY? Ok think whatever you want.

About Abbey, I feel so bad for him. I bet it’s a terrible feeling thinking that your girl (or boy or whatever) doesn’t love you in the same way. Worst, if she/he cheers too much a friend that was her/his past crush… I would think about “eh it’s just a friend” but I know, after that statement, you start to think more and more about it, ad then BAM Jealousy, disappointment, frustration…

It’s terrible being in both sides, guys.Both wrong but they are not pitch duckers whatever. So please, calm down.

And just for the “you need experience”
No, I didn’t got the same scenario, nor experience (And I’m sad about this, I could have learn a lot…)
However, I felt like Abbey, and I was clueless like Daisy. In the same time.

@ Lickit&stickit again most of what you have been saying about Daisy is true. But they are all still teenagers and they will make mistakes. What matters is will they learn from there mistakes and fix them. Daisy can be with abbey who loves her or lose him because of some other ***** wussy guy who doesn’t even love her but she is infatuated with. Daisy is smart sure but she has no ****ing common sense.

@Blue fox

Just trying to stimulate discussion :)

At the end of the day, yeah it really doesn’t matter what happens but it’s just fun to talk about. Maybe it’s just me, but most of my mentors/family didn’t treat me as a teenager, but rather a young adult in need of some guidance. And with that came responsibility, praise, and consequences.

So I get really frustrated when sometimes people pass of poor decisions or behavior for teens with, “Oh but they are just young and are going to just mess up or awhile until they figure it out.” It just sounds like terrible advice to have about the youth. It certainly doesn’t encourage them to grow up and be accountable for themselves.

If anything, the quasi-caring about their decisions just makes them have no direction at all. They’ll just flail around and grow up to be man-children or struggle needlessly on their own to figure it out.

This is sort of and sort of not related to the comic, but it is the general sentiment among the readers towards really poor decision making by the cast.

And no, I have no idea either why Tails only speaks to mostly me in absolute defiance without ever having anything good to counter with.

Because Taeshi says so. Shhhhh, don’t discourage the irrational love on a gray cat with a mediocre personality.

Though I think she’s gotten good at adding more characters, like Oreo. I think we need to see more male cats though since most of the cast is female. Which is prolly why everyone loves Mike by default.

Loads of fun on the forum here I see. I’m kinda scared to give my opinion on the page… But here goes.

I can’t say I’ve really been on either Daisy’s or Abbey’s position so my input on this situation may not be all that valid. How this all will end up depends on how these two will handle this in the end. This could be handled sensibly or this could be handled badly. At this point, it’s being handled quite badly. I don’t think either one is handling this like they should and Daisy’s continuous pining for Mike isn’t really helping either, as shown when she just had eyes for Mike at Rachel’s party (And she drunk so much she can’t really remember, that’s quite bad). They can get through this if Abbey takes a bit of a time out, since although he every right to be upset, being upset can cloud your judgement.

Comment ID #274582

So looked at most of the comments and basically here’s my opinion: *takes a deep breath* I honestly think that whoever said that Daisy’s just utterly confused on what she did was right. She was drunk, barely remember anything she did, much less said so….why are there people hating her for not remembering anything?

Yes, she did mess up. They both messed up but you know what, THEY’RE YOUNG AND POSSIBLY IMPRESSIONABLE TEENAGERS. Teenagers tend to think that they know best about certain things until after the event happens (whether it be weeks, months, or years later) and they go ‘WHOA. I WAS A COMPLETE *******. WHY DID I THINK THAT WAS A GOOD IDEA?!’

We’ve done stupid **** and I know I’ve done stupid **** and I’m still young. I’m going to probably continue to make stupid mistakes and if I do get drunk and not remember ****, I’ll be like Daisy, thinking ‘WHAT THE HELL DID I DO?!’ when told ‘hey you did something at this party’ by someone close to me.

I agree with you there, I think people just give kids a free pass to make terrible mistakes and just shrug it off with oh they’re just young oh well. But at the same time and I know this is probably offensive some peoples parents/guardians are just plain simple. They don’t teach them what they should and shouldn’t do, they don’t set good examples for them to follow, they don’t give them limitations or have expectations, and some sadly feel the best way to learn is to just let them make mistakes and grow. I 5000% disagree with that last part because you do NOT need to go out and experience a lot of horrible, terrible age inappropriate things to get “experience” or learn how to handle it. My mom thankfully taught me how to deal with things, and while I didn’t experience them personally sometimes I learned from watching others and seeing how good or bad things turned out for them. How my mom’s life had been and how others who we’re radically different turned out. However having seen how others are I do tend to now (26) have more sympathy for them and try to be more understanding of their situations. Even in the best family situations teens can rebel and screw up royally because their brains are not fully developed and they make hasty decisions. Being a teen is hard and I do not miss it at all lol (well maybe the fast metabolism and lack of adult responsibility). I think as long as people take the time to try and learn or reflect on situations they can make it out and be ok adults. Its like you said when they just use age as an excuse to do whatever and never learn to take responsibility that there’s a problem.

Thats probably one of the reasons I’m starting to dislike Paulo seems like he keeps getting kicked left and right but he’s still just shrugging it off and making terrible decisions (when he seems to know better??? I know people like that but I hope he snaps out of it sooner then they did).


Yeah I agree even though Daisy is wrong if Abbey actually explains what she said and why it made him feel the way he did etc they have a shot. Then it’d be up to Daisy to decide if her non-reciprocated feels for Mike we’re more important then her relationship or not. The main reason I’m leaning more to Abbey doing something is because, since what shes doing is bothering him and she obviously doesn’t know it he should at least bring it to her attention. How will she ever really understand what shes doing is wrong (aside from her own conscience but that doesn’t apply since she was drunk) if he just holds it in till he explodes or is ready to dump her?

I agree with you there, I think people just give kids a free pass to make terrible mistakes and just shrug it off with oh they’re just young oh well. But at the same time and I know this is probably offensive some peoples parents/guardians are just plain simple. They don’t teach them what they should and shouldn’t do, they don’t set good examples for them to follow, they don’t give them limitations or have expectations, and some sadly feel the best way to learn is to just let them make mistakes and grow. I 5000% disagree with that last part because you do NOT need to go out and experience a lot of horrible, terrible age inappropriate things to get “experience” or learn how to handle it.”

Oh my god, are you serious? OF course you need to make mistakes yourself to learn and grow on your expieriences! If you only rely on other people on what is right and wrong you will never be able to make proper desicions on your own. And also, you can´t be really understanding towards others if you never have expirienced what they have, especially in terms of love and feelings. You do not make your own decisions, but just copy the way others would decide (in this case your mom, but this will not always work, because your whole situation is a different one than hers when she was your age with other expectations and other people to interact with.). You can´t just expect other people to do the same thing you do and make the same desicions that you make , just because it works for you, because it is never guaranteed that it would work out in the same way for others.

Of course everyone makes mistakes but you do not need to trip and fall in every pot and hole on the road to gain experience and learn. And yes you very well CAN make proper decisions without experiencing certain things. One of my friends went to a party got drunk, raped and had a pregnancy scare. I learned to be careful who I went out with, and not to over drink from HER experience. The way I personally responded was nothing like HER reaction because we are two different people with two very different upbringings. Humans learn from each other, AND from their experiences you’ll have a hard time if you think the only way you can make good decisions is to experience everything first hand. We all will make mistakes at times but if you’d bothered to read the whole thing you’d see I mean (mostly) avoidable age inappropriate mistakes. I have seen SO many parents who are crazy/stupid enough to give their kids drugs, alcohol, or push them into relationships at young ages because they honestly believe that that’s the best way for them to learn to experience that mess YOUNG so they can handle it when they’re older.

I know how to make my own decisions based on things I’ve observed, experienced, been told, and understand many times I do things my mother may not have done. Its called common sense she shared her knowledge/common sense I built from that and make my own choices. I dunno why you think I expect others to make the same choices as me? Everyone has to make their own decisions I and no one else can or should expect them to do things my way or no way.

Btw I think you meant empathy, no I can’t fully empathize with an experience I’ve never seen/had but, you can sympathize. Just why do you think you can’t?

Don’t bother tails, they just want to make excuses for people. Though to be be fair, if I remember correctly, they are still a teen so they probably have little experience with growing up anyways.

Back to the whole discussion I sat here nodding in approval. My sibling was the one to experiment and screw up. I learned a LOT from what they were going through. They STILL haven’t learned from all those moments, but I did.

I didn’t need to experience all those horrible decisions to make good choices myself. And I agree, I’ve known people who willingly make poor choices toting the YOLO banner or with their parental encouragement that they need to make bad choices to learn.

The thing is with bad choices, is some of those are real issues that adults struggle with. And they do have real consequences, some of which might really be tough to get out of them. Only a neglectful parent would give no guidance to a rebellious kid or just say, “They need this because its good for them.”

@ Jonas97face you said you have a Lucy paulo pendant as a necklace? Look what I did with mine.

When the charm packs I order come in I’m going to add them to my bittersweet necklace. Because this comic has me by the throat. I stop by here any ware from like 10 to 20 times a day.

About the “making mistakes to better your experience” thing, do I need to poke a tiger with a stick to find out if it will attack me or not? No. That is a mistake I will gladly avoid. Mistakes aren’t the only way to learn. Now I wonder if anyone actually tried to poke a tiger o_o

I am unsure if I like the new art style, as it makes the characters a little younger looking than they should be. It does make them a bit cuter though, so I guess I’m okay with it. o3o

omg. lol the drama. the festering heat. i got tired of readng the comments bout the 100th one in. i was really starting to think tht hunnikitty was like a 40 yr old women there n then she states shes also in her early 20s. that kinda took the cake for me. “you are young and have no experiences. but i am also young and have SO many experiences.” funy funy you are - stated while shaking finger at you-
anyway.. poor kittys. abby should have mentioned his troubles with daisy from the other day sooner. if she is not aware of her actions how could she consider correcting the problem.
daisy. guilty as charged lol. perhaps to avoid future conflict she should consider not drinking with mike around or drinking at all. abby even strongly sugusted that she shouldnt be doing it. might save them a little heartache in the future.

We have the exact same level of experience living, being the same age, so her main argument was pretty funny.

“Now I wonder if anyone actually tried to poke a tiger o_o”

Did you ever watch the cinemasnob review where he reviews a chinese film about a boy tarzan tiger whisperer, who, at the end of the movie, pokes the (FREE & ROAMING TIGER) with a stick? The movie has a scene of a child obvious getting mauled (and apparently living, if you trust chinese or indian newspapers reporting about obvious on set child maulings… ) by a grown and probably only poorly train tiger - if you want to see for yourself, go here and forward to 1:00. http://blip.tv/the-cinema-snob/kung-tai-ted-tiger- love-5142583

Yes, @Holly, at least one child was forced to make that mistake for food. = (

Your necklace is beautiful :love:. However I don’t have a Lucy Paulo necklace. I have a Jasmine charm (you might have heard my story about me and my necklace when we first met XD). Once again I must praise you for your geniusness (lame English I know :( ). Good job man ;)

Oooooohhhh. Are you gonna replace @buchay ?
Yeah more fun. On a side note though, your being really aggressive towards people. I would like to ask you a question. Do you value other peoples opinion or do you only see your own opinion to be the best and flawless one and everybody’s other opinion to be total trash :question: ? Just asking a harmless question.

I’m sorry what your friends have been through. I have already heard your story @Lickit but I would like to say again I’m sorry for you (I’m sorry for my lame English there so I don’t know if I wrote it right?).

Laughed really hard about the Tiger XD

Looking really forward for the next page upload. Wonder what will happen :question:

@ Jonas97face I did here your story about your charm. I will show you my necklace when it’s done.
So Daisy is about to poke that abbey tiger and get the **** mauled out of her because she has no experience in this area and no friends that have experienced it either. Some people just have to learn on there own. Not everyone can sit on the side line and watch and learn. Someone has to go and make bad decisions so others can say yea that was a bad idea. We know better now.

@Charles D: That poor child. Who thought that was a good idea? :( I don’t need to watch or hear about someone else poking a tiger to know it’s a horrible idea. It’s a wild animal. And a dangerous wild animal at that. >_< Tigers can weigh up to a thousand pounds (or over 400 kilograms), ten times my weight. I wouldn’t even be much of a meal, I would be an appetizer and later the tiger’s toothpicks.

@Blue fox

I’m beginning to think this chapter and December combined might be the “boys yell at their love interests for behavior” arc. If we add a Paulo bitch-fest over Rachel hanging out with her friend, that’ll be three relationships.

The boys need to get a grip, and actually TALK to the girls when it happens. Not way after when their feelings get all in a wad. D:

Taeshi, have you never drank? I was fine with it for the sake of the comedy in the last chapter, but now you’re trying to drag it into a more serious arc. There was no way she was black-out drunk. For crying out loud. She had maybe enough to get her buzzed, hell, I’ll even believe she might have gotten drunk for a bit there. But there was no way she had drunk enough to black out. Especially after not drinking for so long while listening/talking to Michael.

As I said, I didn’t care last chapter, because their drunkenness wasn’t meant to be a plot point or whatever. Now we’re supposed to believe Daisy was so drunk she has no memory of what she said to Michael? And why would Abbey wait so damn long to talk to her about this? Isn’t he seeing a therapist? I would’ve thought that if he hadn’t come to the conclusion to talk to her about it, the therapist would’ve been pushing for him to do it way sooner.

@ Lickit&stickit but then there would be no drama :O. We can’t have that now. But yes you should deal with a problem as soon as possible because problems usually just get worse when ignored. Let’s hope abbey has not let it consume him with rage. Paulo im afraid is a lost cause already.

“Who thought that was a good idea? ”

I have no idea. The basic premise of “Tiger Love” is “human minded tiger help family fight crime/avenger a death or something”. It means a tiger has to get physical with a LOT of people, and is generally considered to have a body count around 15-20. It’s a ludicrous premise founded on insanity and human-based tiger food.

it’s amusing at first but there is a limit to the stuff that one can time regarding the idiocy of the fanbase and their nonsensical responses in the comment section!

They are not real, they don’t exist, find something more meaningful to wine and bitch and complain about!
like rape or your bigot grandmother or something…
