You've mentioned once in an interview that the Teahouse Cast was once originally apart of an entirely different setting before settling on the Brothel What If that we've all come to be familiar with. I'm curious to know, what was their original setting and more importantly, who were they in that original universe? I'm highly interested in knowing. Thank you in advanced for answering. :)

The original story was something of an rpg fantasy type setting. It wasn’t very deep or interesting, it was just kind of random final fantasy style fantasy setting haha. I’m actually having a really hard time remembering who did what, Atros was in charge of -something- and he and Liard were fighting over Linneus (who at that point was named Linnea). Argent was there but she was a lot more vocal. Linneus, Atros and Liard were always there from the beginning. Argent came along shortly after then Rory followed (though he was way different from how he is now).

I think at one point we put them in a fantasy school setting and Atros was the principle. Rory was some manipulative little shit with a crush on his sister (very different from how he is now). And actually, Claret used to be the name for Rory’s twin sister Remy, but we repurposed her for Teahouse (thus why her name has nothing to do with any of her coloring, she got changed out from red hair when she was changed into a different character).

Then there was another version of the story where Linneus was on the run from Atros, who was a bounty hunter in love with Linneus? We tried them in a lot of settings and it didn’t really all click until Teahouse.

Reed, Rhys and Axis didn’t come along until way later. Reed didn’t actually come until we put Rory in the Teahouse setting and wanted someone for him. Axis was created because I just wanted a straight playboy type character (surprise surprise, he turned out gay anyway). Rhys was created as someone for Mercutio (originally Rhys was a huge fetishist) but we ended up putting him with Axis and they had amazing chemistry.

Gilder and Sacha came along last. Gilder I just created to be the exact opposite of Atros’ character as a replacement for Liard, who in the end was kind of boring. Gilder was way more interesting so we kept him around. And Sacha was added as his companion!

Whew, I had a lot more to say on that than I thought! Hopefully that’s interesting to read.

P2 I ask because I wonder if you get ad revenue from your site and if getting a bunch of weekly hits actually helps the comic. I know a lot of other fans do this. Would be better for you if we didnt? (Feel free to answer publicly)

You don’t need to check our page every week for us to get ad revenue, but please do take a moment to check out our advertisers on the sidebar of our website when you do check in with the comic!

P1 So I really love your comic, but I often ignore it for weeks or months so I can go read a bunch of new pages in a row. Do you keep track of hits on new pages? Would it be better for you two if I read them right away? Does this affect you? <3

It doesn’t matter to us how you guys check the comic online, please feel free to check the comic whichever way is the most convenient for you! The thing that helps us more than hits is when people buy the printed comic or merchandise to support us :)

It was awesome getting to meet you ladies at Otakon! Sad I didn&#8217;t end up taking my Gilder, but as promised, I&#8217;m submitting it here now. :)  Hope you had an awesome Otakon! :D
