First of all, we'd like to thank you guys for all of your support and loyalty over the past few years. Without you, this comic would never have become what it is today and for that we'll forever be grateful. Thank you.
E and I have both reached points in our lives now where we can no longer keep doing Teahouse. For as much as it's brought to us through the years, it's also been a massive amount of work and though we'd love to keep doing it, it's just gotten unrealistic. We've talked about ways we could possibly keep the book going without us being as involved but none of them really work for us. I'm still dealing with school 3000 hours a day and E now has a full-time job in animation and between the two of us we have 0 hours to spend with our husbands let alone our gaybies. As much as you will miss us, just imagine how angry Axis is that E's not going to be able to draw that rimming scene I wrote for her. (I'm not even kidding. He was chin deep.)
So you might be asking yourself, “Well, what the fuck happens now? How does this shit end? Why are you all being such jerks?” to which we have a response: “Don't worry, we're going to tell you everything and post it all on the site and we're jerks because our mothers raised us wrong. Sorry. ”
Here's how it's going to work:
December 3rd: A written summary of Rory and Reed's storyline to the end.
December 10th: A written summary of Rhys and Axis' storyline to the end.
December 17th: A written summary of Linneus and Atros' storyline to the end along with Gilder, Sacha, Claret, Argent, and Lilith – because all of the secondary characters tie into them the most.
As for the books and merch, what's up in the store right now will be the the last of it. We don't plan on doing any more conventions so we won't be printing any more books or making any more merch. Everything left is on sale so if you were thinking about picking anything up, grab it then before it's gone forever.
For those of you on the BL tour, it's still on, E will still be there. Be sure to shower her with questions then cause it'll probably be the last time you can.
And now I'd like to just take a second to thank E. Thank you for listening to my immature ass when I first said to you, “DOOD. We could totally make a porno!!!” In retrospect it was pretty crazy that I literally pushed us into this venture with the thought, “how hard could it be?” If it weren't for you, Teahouse wouldn't exist, Emirain wouldn't exist, and most of all, I would have no idea that I'd want to pursue writing seriously. I am literally in school right now because you had faith in what we could do as a team and I don't know if I could ever properly thank you for that. You've literally changed my life. I love you forever, you are the Emi to my Rain. Thank you.
And to all of you who've been with us through it all, we love you too.
-XOXO CC & E
