Web Comic: Bittersweet Candy Bowl
The main cast. ...Except the blonde brown cat.

Quite possibly the ultimate Will They or Won't They?, Bittersweet Candy Bowl is a webcomic by Veronica Vera. It follows a group of feline and canine friends through middle and high school, focusing primarily on a pretty, white-colored Tsundere called Lucy and her ongoing crush/rivalry with Nice Guy Mike. Also featured are Love Triangles (actually, a developing Love Dodecahedron) among Jerk with a Heart of Gold Paulo, cheery Teen Genius Daisy, Cloudcuckoolander David, and Abbey, Daisy's now boyfriend with a troubled past. There's also Jessica, a strong-willed cheerleader who has a fancy for Lucy and hates/dislikes Tess, Rachel, a cheerful cheerleader, and Jasmine, Paulo's new girlfriend.

A deep sufferer of Cerebus Syndrome, Bittersweet Candy Bowl started off almost entirely lighthearted but delved into heavy drama pretty early on — there are still jokes, though they are increasingly rare.

While the series makes use of anthropomorphic cats, dogs, and birds, these are derived more from the Funny Animals trope than any serious links to whatever classifies as a true Furry Comic. The characters were developed when the author was young and presumably unaware of the Furry Fandom.

The comic is an ongoing serial, and is published every Monday, Wednesday and Friday, alongside an occasional Ask Blog on Tumblr. Be warned: this comic has an enormous amount of teen angst melodrama.
