No tree incident. Phew.

-Edit- Also, beautiful artwork here, Tae. Very well done.

Also have to say I think Daisy is gonna slip. :/ Maybe Lucy will catch her? xD But honestly if anything happens perhaps Abbey will catch Daisy?

Oh, I bet Daisy going to slip. Kind of reminds me of a previous chapter.

Keep up the great work Taeshi!

Heh, love how Abbey just leaves her behind to travel the slippery rocks XD

I wish this chapter was in the old thin-lined style, all the detail would look wonderful in this setting. This art is cute but it’s a bit blobby

Awww…Daisy will slip, Abbey will save her…they’ll realise how much they love each other…

Daisy will slip and Mike will catch her and Abbey might be angry (just speculations).

@MigBird That is a very valid point you have made. Maybe its politically correct or something to refer to other cats and dogs as “people” in the BcB universe.

Everyone confirmed for eminent death. What is wrong with these kids; did they not learn anything?

Hazel July 11, 2014, 1:47 PM EDT.

Comment ID #283782

So maybe it is part flashback arc/ Daisy arc? :O
The only thing I know (or more correctly ‘feel’) is that this is building up to something big. Big and bad :(
You don’t point out to a group of people and say “look, humans!”…

@George: We don’t know that Abbey left her alone. We don’t see his outline walking away, he could still be holding back to help her on the next page.

There be pussy down in the there creek.

Comment ID #283785

You gotta go with the flow, Daisy. Just run down there, feel the gravity, the weight of your own body, shift your motion as need be and you’ll make it down just fine.

Over think it too much and you’ll probably trip on a rock and end up rolling down with a bunch of bumps at the end.

Blank On Purpose July 11, 2014, 1:57 PM EDT.

Comment ID #283786

She has no chance of survival. RIP Daisy.

Chances are someone will catch her. To be honest, if she’s that worried about slipping, why not crawl on all fours? I’m pretty sure that would be safer, right?

Daisy falls, paulo saves the day, abbey is mad

I base this prediction on nothing

wh does the cat girl on the rock in the second panel look scared and about to cry? :unsure:

Panel 4:
Daisy figurine?

Huh? July 11, 2014, 2:38 PM EDT.

@Dovah where I come from we consider the girl in hte second panel to make a happy expression.

Zarylo July 11, 2014, 2:47 PM EDT.

Comment ID #283792

since taeshi is known for giving it a twist i say daisy will not slip, because that would be too obvious..and instead abbey will slip and daisy will catch him :P

@awesome Alan
i do that all the time o.o ;P

@MigBird: Of course he doesn’t. Because he lives in a world where people = cats and dogs.

Moogle July 11, 2014, 2:59 PM EDT.

Comment ID #283795


I think you’re right. That, or Paulo will slip and Tess will catch him.

Bludgeon4U July 11, 2014, 2:59 PM EDT.

Comment ID #283796

Exactly. Also, I expect some kind of cliché anime fall (Abbey slips and lands on top of Daisy with his hands at an awkward position)

On another note, thise backgrounds look amazing! You can see how Taeshi is improving the new art style with every new page.

TWIST! its a BCB comic where they go near a river and NO-ONE gets hurt or emotionally scared!

Evan July 11, 2014, 3:40 PM EDT.

Comment ID #283800

So this is the Daisy/Abbey make-up chapter? It’d be more interesting if Abbey let her down. It’d be interesting to see how it’d affect his ego and her dependence. Or maybe I’m just cruel.

Zott July 11, 2014, 4:04 PM EDT.

Comment ID #283801

Someone’s gonna fall into the water….it’s just a matter of who and how,will daisy trip and knock someone in? Will David smack someone on the back and they fall? Will Mike have an earth shattering relegation that causes him to collapse? Who knows!

GASP, you fool! do you know what this means?! The comic must have drama! IT MUST.

Those two cats were about to fuk and Paulo interrupts them, right?

regretful prick July 11, 2014, 5:26 PM EDT.

Comment ID #283804

@Evan It’s a creek. I doubt it’s more than four inches deep. No life threatening drama here.

regretful July 11, 2014, 5:27 PM EDT.

Comment ID #283805

Everyone seems to be heading down except Abbey? I hope Daisy hasn’t just forgotten about him to head off with the group…

the comments here make me laugh so much some time, as right now it seems everyone has agreed that this seems to be daisys death.

Abbey, help your girl out.

Comment ID #283809

She’s either gonna slip and Mike will catch her making things super awkward, or Abbey will catch her and they’ll realize how much they care for each other.
Either that or she won’t slip at all and she’ll be totally fine.
Or someone else slips and she freaks out.

OMG Paulo slips o.o now THAT would be interesting…what if…BOTH Paulo AND Tess slip? there would be nobody to drive them back home o.o

OMG mike looks like old mike! The mike that existed before he became a jerk! (Yeah i know, he might now be a jerk now, but after his jerkiness he changed, okay?)

I dont understand you people! Are you trying to see the future? Just wait and youll see what happens, in time!
and why havent anyone suggested that daisy falls into the water and her hair gets all curly and she freaks out or something?

Yellow July 11, 2014, 8:52 PM EDT.

Comment ID #283813

It’s just a rock Daisy.

I don’t like how she is perpetually 5. I hate girls that act that way on purpose. Does she actually think she’ll need a whambulance?

Imagine if Lucy’s family(with Lucy) was the only one who could bring them back as well.

Michael July 11, 2014, 9:09 PM EDT.

And they refuse to help them because Mike is with them o.o

Tails July 11, 2014, 9:20 PM EDT.

Comment ID #283816

Twice, Paulo’s been the one that wanted to go to the creek.

So why is Daisy the one doing it?

EDIT: n/m, I figured out that everyone was walking down the rocks and Daisy was being nervous about it. Sheesh. After all that talk from Tess about how she didn’t want to do anything difficult, she goes ahead and does it. No wonder I didn’t figure that panel out correctly.

I love mikes face here though.. i wish this is when he becomes old mike

Alternate ending for BCB:
Daisy falls and creates a massive explosion when impacting with the rocks, because all this time, she was actually half flesh, half plutonium. Everyone dies. The end.

Omg, I can totally relate to Daisy. :( Being a coward sucks.

I think Daisy has a (slightly) illogical phobia like Lucy.

Tyrandael July 13, 2014, 2:25 AM EDT.

Comment ID #283832

Why are you drawing everyone like children in these latest chapters….? Is it a flashback ? Because your art style here is a lot more professional and better anatomy http://www.bittersweetcandybowl.com/c69/p16.html and they look like their age so I don’t understand why you would change that :o??

Little_sunshine July 13, 2014, 3:10 AM EDT.

Comment ID #283833

Hey taeshi, you should realy contact the mlp staff aka my little pony friendship is magic. They did fosters home for emagnary friends and power puff girls too. I could see them turning bittersweet into a hit cartoon. Check out there work, there style matches your artwork.

BCB-Drama is magic :D

Comment ID #283843

Is it because Daisy doesn’t wore shoes.

ALWAYS wear shoes in forests

Unknown July 13, 2014, 11:40 AM EDT.

Comment ID #283844

@JustSomeCritic: Yeah, I’m sure the themes of serious depression, abuse, implied suicide attempts, neglect, and attempted rape, are right up their alley.

I’m not sure if your comment is meant to be a joke, but I’d be careful if it is because it implies a lack of depth as you are comparing this comic to a children’s cartoon. There is nothing wrong with a cute art style. :/

Moogle July 13, 2014, 12:27 PM EDT.

You realize that “children cartoons” can be very dark often too? :o

Comment ID #283847

@Little_Sunshine Yeah. I really like the art on that page was well. Comparing them so directly makes even this page look messy. And I like the art on this page.

Ravako July 13, 2014, 7:54 PM EDT.

Comment ID #283850

Well it’s nice to see things cool down after some intense stuff… (cough cough Lucy, where are you?!?) Daisy is the slightly “wimpy”/mom-like cat she is, 8-) and 8-D are kinda YOLOing it out as pranksters. :D

Lezz see what dramaz and problemoz taeshi shall spin now, eh? ;)

Narwhalz July 13, 2014, 11:11 PM EDT.

Comment ID #283851

XD Gotta love that puffy face that Daisy makes in panel 5!

NarfNilnik July 13, 2014, 11:17 PM EDT.

Comment ID #283858

@Ravako yeah that is my point ;) I mean they are about 16-18 now and in the previous chapter where they are at the party and wearing clothes, they act and look more mature, which is perfect for their age.. But this chapter and especially this page made me disappointed, since I know she can draw them more professional and her it looks like she is in really bad shape .. The anatomy, the childish faces and act is not suitable :/ I don’t wanna bitch because I really like this comic but I think she should draw them like the previous chapters and not so messy, maybe use computer instead of watercolor to make better lines and shading too, since sometimes it’s hard to see if their mouth is open or shut or what ..!

Little_sunshine July 14, 2014, 12:24 AM EDT.

Comment ID #283860

As a new reader any comic I find interesting, I like to start from page one and see how the characters, writing style etc. changes with time.
My favorite character so far is Lucy (and most likely ever will be). My two cousins like to fight all the time like she and Mike did in the beginning; but as Mike became more hostile… It seemed to remind me of my own past. (I have OCD with depression.) As things worsened with Lucy, I saw the cycle I was so familiar with.
The meds help, and I can always count on my pets to be there to make everything better. Callie is a three-legged no tail Manx who lost the leg to cancer, but after the death of Buddy -also a cat- she tries to live each day like nothing bad has ever happened. She just will not let anything get to her. I try to do the same everyday. I really hope Lucy comes back O.K…

David July 14, 2014, 1:44 AM EDT.

Comment ID #283861

Is this new “chibi style” gonna be permanent? Its cute and all, but it makes the characters all look so young now…like they’re aging in reverse
Also RIP baby Daisy rip in pieces

Comment ID #283863

I return to take a peek at the comic I have officially given up on. Now that every single character presented still in the comic has been rendered unlikable in some way except Abbey. I have to wonder, where is Lucy? You’ve held the suspense so long, and have refused to reveal, almost paving over her life with theirs as if you wanted to permanently get rid of her because people don’t fancy her that much. I mean…now I am just annoyed, seeing that most of the pages are uninteresting filler. Everyone at wrong has been refused justice and I suppose Daisy is supposed to be, the new “Lucy?” Honestly I don’t what happened here.

Chazz July 14, 2014, 9:03 AM EDT.

I just hope you know what you’re doing with this…..

Chazz July 14, 2014, 9:04 AM EDT.

Comment ID #283865

Ooooooh, OR….someone ELSE catches Daisy. I mean, someone else entirely, a new handsome stranger. He rescues her, she is instantly smitten with him, Paulo HATES him and Abbey is jealous…and also upset because she is “his” girl. Oh, and Mike is jealous too because this guy is more handsome than he is and is better at everything than he is, and he’s not used to coming in second.

Talonvaki July 14, 2014, 10:02 AM EDT.

Comment ID #283914

….Y’know. Looking back on the previous chapters, Daisy isn’t fat. She just isn’t severely under-weight.
