The first submission for “Fuck with your pages” was a song reference- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fYNQzqNqzdc If you haven’t heard this song… You should listen and look at the page. Ladies, prepare to lose your shit. xD
First at all i really have to say, how much i appreciate your work. You both are my role models when it comes up to do this great artwork. The story is just *can’t find the right words* AWESOME! So many genre! So it never is getting boring at all and you always have those surprising moments, like it has to be. The art itself. The outlines must have been so filigree that the colouring is that gorgeous and full of nicety. Everytime i think about drawing my own storys as a comic i first get insecure, but when i see the awesome work of you both, i say to myself: ”Well, just try it.” And to show you both just about how much i appreciate your work, i can’t wait to get my Cosplay finished! And i can tell you that much about it: It isn’t that easy to find a ferret plush toy. Or even a real ferret, i maybe could use for a photoshooting. As soon as it is finished and i have the first pictures, i can’t wait to show them to you. But before this happens, i am still working hard on it that it almost looks as perfect as the work of yours.
So, anyway. What i actually wanted to tell you, is: I don’t think you both have to explain yourselfs. I mean, yeah okay. You are trying to make them understand, what kind of hard work it actually is and that they should try to feel like you two. But i can tell you with almost completely 100% that THEY, who are always writing those mean comments, won’t ever understand. And i say… Don’t care about them, because they are not worth it. Hang on to your lovely readers which really appreciate your work and will support you, no matter how long ti maybe takes for a new page-upload. Because it is ALWAYS worth the wait. For sure!
And i am talking about mayself again, but i am sure, i am not the only one who is actually thinking this way. I have always something to be excited about. And even if there is no upload? Then i take my print, lay down at my couch and read it again and again. Or i read it online again, and again.
You also have your private life and the people should understand it and keep on supporting without putting so much pressure onto both of you. You did deserve better than that!
So. And the best at the end: I’ve got a lot of respect for both of you. You are my role models. I really love your work and i really appreciate it.
Thank you guys so much for putting in such fantastic effort at AX!!! I loved being able to come out all the way from Minnesota to see you guys for the first time when I have been an avid reader for a while now! I love everything I got and look forward to my collection growing!!
Hey ! I’ve been following your comic since a very long time and I just saw a friend of mine doing a great cosplay of Claret. I think that may interest you… ?
She is RoryWeasley on deviantART and Rory Cosplay on Facebook if that interest you. So, well, yeah ! I was just thinking it may interest you (ohgodi’musingthiswordtoomuch) so… yeah… SORRY FOR MY ENGLISH ASDFGHJKL ;;
Hello. I have been a fan of TH for a little while now, and I know you have probably gotten this a lot but can you give us an explanation of Rhys and Axis’ first time together? I am so sick of people in the comments throwing around the word ‘rape’. It would be nice to have a link to throw at people when they start with the same old rants. Please and thank you.
I’m clearing out the Tumblr asks and came across this! (Also, sorry if the tumblr asks are super old, I’m trying to clear out our inbox so I can get a better handle on it!).
At first I couldn’t understand why people thought Rhys raped Axis. Axis is a pretty capable person and if he really didn’t want to have sex he wouldn’t be having sex. But Axis is kind of a dudebro in the beginning so of course it’s ~too gay for him~. I think at the worst it’s just dub con.
But then I realized that rape is a big trope in yaoi and that people tend to jump to that conclusion with everything in the genre. It’s understandable considering how much dubious consent and rape is actually in them. But as far as Teahouse goes, and Axis and Rhys, I don’t believe it is rape (especially since anytime CC hears about/sees/reads about rape she gets physically ill). I’ve read some pretty rapey shit that turned me off so much and Teahouse isn’t anywhere near that.
Where Axis and Rhys are concerned, they are both assholes to each other, which both spurs and turns the other one on. Axis loves the fight. Rhys loves getting treated like an average person. They both feed on each others’ passion during fights and sex.
I’m not entirely sure how the first encounter in the book goes, because it changed from what it originally was, but in the original Axis actually started on top until Rhys switched it up (something similar to Chapter 2) and then oops, Axis really liked it, and they kept doing it that way. Rhys and Axis’ dialogue from the first encounter are snippets from the original. Rhys and Axis are both assholes and aren’t necessarily that likable, unless you like assholes (which I do).
Also, there be some top bottom switching coming up in the future so if you like that kind of thing, that’s something to look forward to!
I hope that answers your question, asker! Also- don’t even bother with the comments section, just sit back and enjoy the comic <3
Hello there :D I don't know if this has been asked before so my apologies if I'm making you repeat stuff; will you be collecting the chapters you've made so far into one book at some point or will it only be one chapter per book for now? Also, thank you both for all your hard and great work. How you manage to find time to put in all the work and effort that you do on Teahouse never ceases to amaze me. You're a great inspiration<3<3
We’re not sure yet, for now it’s just the single chapters :)
Hallo my lovelies! I’m messaging you to congratulate you on the beauty of the newest page. x3x It’s beautiful! I want you to know that you’ve inspired me and my wonderful friend Tosoto to start up a new cosplay for a special photoshoot.
Myself and Tosoto met about a year ago by complete chance (him forgetting something in the locker room at the theme park we worked at, me standing and waiting for a friend who was late) and since then I introduced him to the world of cosplay (and yaoi which thank God he puts up with when I talk about it). He’s a tall guy, rather buff, tan and hairy. It’s difficult for him to find characters that he can cosplay, and even more so, its difficult for him to find characters that he could RELATE to, personality wise. I think hes found a kindred spirit in Gilder, at least with the love of weaponry and swords. So hopefully by this time next month, we’ll have a shoot done and ready to share with you and the innernets!
We ask for your blessing in this shiny and pointy endeavor, Teahouse deities. Thank you for your time, enjoy a pre-Gilder shot!
E: OMG WHAT A PERFECT GILDER. HE HARDLY EVEN NEEDS TO DRESS UP.
Hey E and CC! :) I was wondering, would you ever buy into the fans' Team Atros and Team Gilder fights? Because you could make some awesome merch for it xD Hope you both are doing well and please keep up the great work! :D
