The more i read your stuff the more i love it! I wish I could do more to help. And being able to talk with someone i've come to admire, to be honest, I may be a new fan but you kinda made a dream of mine come true! And I thank you for it. I really feel inspired and need to put pen to paper!

Hey, I'm glad to hear that! I hope your own work goes well! I'm rooting for ya!
Honestly, comments and good ratings on stuff really helps a lot. (Though, tips of course always help as well I understand that's not in everyone's range right now) My work doesn't see a ton of activity on any platform, so people just talking about via comments or telling friends is kind of huge for me. So, thank you for that!
Mostly, and I think you know this, it's the fact that you don't go straight to sex for some, and others it is the sex weather its the activity or the BL aspect. But your character style is consistent in both personality and looks and the story has wonderful flow. Though you're not the only one that has issues with it. Laurell K. Hamilton, another favorite of mine writes with a multitude of styles together. Horror, murder mystery, romance, modern fantasy, all that in just a couple of series of books. Penguin books and Dark Horse comics picked up her stuff after many that turned her down! You have a following, for both art and story, (your brilliant in what I've seen of your stuff and I'm still looking for more of it<3) You will get to that star you're reaching for, please don't stop reaching for that star! And I'm sorry if mentioning another writer is bad form but she's a great example for what you are going through and I want you to keep hoping, because you started it even though you felt the odds against you and I admire your courage and the strength you had do do it in spite of what fear might have told you. Please forgive me if that seemed over done...😅
LOL! You're good! I don't mind you bringing up other artist's as long as it's not to put them down-- b/c it always sucks to be complimented by someone when they're putting someone else down, which you're not doing! ^^ That's a very cool stuff!
But, my goal isn't to be published by anyone? :O I don't really have a star I'm reaching for: mostly I'm just trying to stay healthy so I can keep completing and releasing stories I wanna release. I sort of had that goal in the past (when I was much younger) but having a publisher comes with a ton of it's own problems and censorship and like, I just don't feel like I need it in this day and age where indie comic artists and game devs are so empowered (when compared to the past) to release our own work. All I really need is for more folks to look at my work and support it through where I have it and I'm good to go-- no publisher required. I don't even care if I'm in a book store because honestly you can get bigger by simply having someone who is popular on Youtube talk about it! We live in a very interesting time ^^9
That's cool, and you're right about the times as they are now. And I'll take releasing your stories as a goal! Lol, 😁 as a general rule of thumb I don't down writers. I either like them/they're so-so/ or not. I really talk about the ones I love, others I'll kinda fall back on like old friends. Mostly the conversation is me giving a general lowdown of what the storyline is about in the hope of them getting curious. Though I'm currently not surrounded by those that would get my excitement about your work, that doesn't stop me in the hope of finding someone that I can share your work with. After all, I think I told you this before but your work has inspired a lot of things in me, and it's because your characters are so relatable and the feelings they have are just as well that I'm happy that I found that app Solanaceae: Another Time. Hmm that reminds me, I have an idea for Zeggy and Alky, it would be no more than a script as I don't have the artistic capability you do but was wondering if I sent it to you once it was completed if I could have your opinion/thoughts. I'll need to read their story again to get it just right and also does Alky have a favorite music type? He seems to be like a classic song kind of guy, maybe Alone by Heart? No specifics of course but it fits what I want to do. 😆
Well hey, maybe one of these days someone will make a server for folks who like my work-- but I do know I've seen a few people get together and talk about my stuff on Twitter. Just a few though! So, it is possible to find someone else who is excited, I'm sure!
You can send me the script if you like, but I'll also encourage you to share it on a site like Ao3 where it could potentially be read my other fans of my work! But also, if you have your own head canons and ideas for the characters, do be aware that it's not always the most fun to bring them straight to the source (or author, in this case) as what I know about the characters may counter what you think, and sometimes that just isn't fun for people. I believe in letting folks enjoy what they want and take what they want from my stories: and my ideas aren't always better or more fun for people just because I'm the originator (if that makes sense) I've def had people approach me, tell me they REALLY wanna know the "truth", I tell them, and they leave disappointed or they seem to loose interest. So! I tend to be rather hands off.
That said, I'll never say no to someone who wants to send me fan work because I really do like it, and I love fan fiction *especially*. I just wanna make sure you know that stuff as a forward because I don't want to interfere with someone's fun. ^^;
Oh my God, the moment I saw the artstyle I realized it was you!!! Your games are amazing and this is amazing!!! 💕
Er, I'm not interested in making a magazine myself (I am way way too busy with all of my projects, this one included) but I'd love to be featured in something like that! :D And I'd gladly share the project on my socials!
how many are missing on this page?
This page ONLY updates when there's a completed chapter, so it's a fair bit behind right now!
Here's where you can read the comic as it updates each week:
:) I hope you'll consider checking it out there because it helps the comic a lot when it gets love on Tapas or Webtoons.
I Love It, Keep It Coming Buddy
Just finished reading (all the ones on here, i'm going to continue reading on webtoons. Also, my non-binary ass has been looking for a name, and honestly i love the name Alkaline so much, so i'm considering taking that haha. Thanks for the representation. I have fallen in love with every single one of these characters.
Aw, thanks so much! I'm so glad you like my humble little goof comic I've been working on since forever. And thanks for the lovely comments! I'm sure Alkaline would be honored if you were inspired by his name, hehe.
These comments reminded me that Chapter 9 was finished and I forgot to upload the PDF! I've uploaded it now~ Hopefully that's a bit easier to read than Webtoons (Webtoons is one of the worse mirrors for any comic as it crushes the quality really easily! I recommend PDFs or Tapas, tbqh~)
Hey, I started reading this yesterday and I'm six chapters in, I love them all so much! Thanks for the ace representation, I remember a while ago I tried to write an ace character and he actually looked a lot like Joe so that's fun. Also, Toggy and Terrago remind me of these guys:
Just with the extremely strong guy and the bundle of sunshine with blue hair and horns. Anyway, that was just a thought, lmao.
Hi. I was wondering if I could translate this comic to Wattpad? I want to translate it into Polish on the account called "Marcel_To_Gejuch". I recently translated a yaoi comic but took a break. To date, I have 2.8 thousand Readings, but I intend to continue working. So, author, could I translate and add your comic to Wattpad?
That sounds okay, but I'd like to discuss some details, please!
Please contact me privately at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will work out the details! Thank you!
As a boy, I don't like yaoi but I love this comic, It made me laugh a lot, the characters are awesome and I would love to see more of this story.

Hi there! Thanks for your comic and thanks for reading!
It's perfectly fine to read a story that's gay or lesbian or any kind of queer and not identify as that yourself. It's okay to just enjoy stuff and you don't need to prove anything about yourself to do so. :)
Next time you don't need to mention that you don't like the type of romance specifically-- you should just talk about why you like the comic, etc etc. Comments like "I'm not gay, BUT I still like this." or "I'm a man, BUT I still like this." can come off as dismissive or rude and it can be tiring for creators.
Have an awesome day!
Sorry if my comment sounded a bit mean, it wasn't on purpose.
It wasn't mean, don't worry! I was just trying to explain how it could sound rough to someone who gets comments like that a lot.
I definitely wasn't trying to lecture you but just to inform you of my feelings and experiences, and I appreciate you taking the time to read my reply and comment back. <3
