Dunno what ramming a foot up your ass will do to make you make a webcomic, but starting a script might help!

Write out your story/script/ect in a word/google doc first so you can have some plans laid out and ready to go!

I understand listening to video game music helps too...

(sadly) politics greatly affect the lives of all people, so getting away from politics probably isn't possible. People want to talk about stuff that bothers them. Politics bother people. Oh boy do politics bother people... (Including myself)



Anyway, back on topic. I don't think there are many people who simply don't disagree on SOMETHING. Politics is just a big one. And sadly, overall, I do not think we all have been trained by society to handle political discussions very well. We either clam up or we yell and name call and in the end no one is understanding one another's point of view better. If anything we understand less and less...


Here's hoping later generations can do better than us in this regard.

Bolderousness:And questions are part of the whole "intellectual/philosophical debate." If they're not, you're doing it wrong. The more you question, the bigger the anger will be as the parent struggles with finding more answers.


Thank you for telling me this, as it is not quite what I meant by "intellectual/philosophical debate".
What I mean by that was "No you're wrong because ____" type arguments. Where it doesn't matter how much proof or studies or examples you have, the other person is not interested in an actual debate. They're interested in standing their ground.

It also shows me I should have been more specific about the question thing...

When asking questions, frame them in an empathetic way. Such as "Are you [emotion] about [thing] because you need [a human need]?". It's the "non-violent communication" method of asking questions that is good at settling vitriolic responses due to it clearly showing you care about the other persons feelings as well as the conflict.
In fact you should probably frame all your questions this way... It will help get to the bottom of things. You should also frame your replies in this way as well. (I'm [emotion] when you [action] because I need [a human need].)


For example:
"Are you [angry] about [homosexuality] because you need [order]?"

And then:
"I'm [sad] when you [call homosexuality a sin] because I need [unity, understanding, and love between all people]."


I would definitely look into "Non-violent Communication" (or NVC) if you plan to go through with this method. It's not an easy thing to use as it requires some cultural unlearning on the users part.


Bolderousness: If you keep engaging with her and her beliefs, you'll get the same result. Didn't Albert Einstein say that insanity is trying the same thing over and over again and expecting different results? It's clear that the grandma isn't going to accept direct confrontation.


Again, thank you for pointing this stuff out, as it shows me I was not clear enough. o/

Hopefully it's clearer now that I'm offering a different strategy than the usual.

I've heard people tend to have better luck in these situations if, instead of trying to prove yourself right and getting no where, you just ask a ton of questions.

Every answer she gives, reply with another question until she is forced to consider and review her own logic. it can also help you get down to the bottom of why she might feel/believe the way she does. Yes it might seem to be stereotypical stuff on the outside, but there most likely is something more to the issue. Humans are complex and are known to trick themselves into thinking and feeling certain ways in order to protect themselves (be it necessary or otherwise)(See: Cognitive Dissonance). ((People are also more likely to listen once they've said all they can say about something first.))



Once you've figured out the details of her feelings and beliefs it will be much easier to get on the same page and figure out a solution. This won't be easy, of course, seeing as she is old and has probably experienced many things in her life, but it will be more effective than trying to have an intellectual/philosophical debate that gets no where.


Also, on a final note, don't go into this with dehumanizing thoughts of her. People are not concepts, they are human beings. If you go into this thinking "Time to change this homophobe" instead of "Time to help this fellow human better understand other humans", she will probably notice and get defensive. Her homophobia is bad, but you have to recognise her as human first.

Good luck!! ;;/ I know arguing with family members isn't fun...

I take hiatuses from my comic... to work on a different comic, lol.

Sometimes I need a break from one story and work on another. I never stop drawing though.

It can be good to take off, though. I find that inspiration to work is finite, and that I tend to work better when I'm experiencing things outside my own little creative bubble. It also helps with the burn out.


Worse thing that's happened? I've lost some readers because they stopped checking on the comic(s). But hey, won't they be surprised if they decide to come back and read it again one day? Just to find there are now TONS more pages!

idk, it's an optomistic thought... Keeps me positive.

I love love LOVE the colors you got going here. They are incredibly soft and warm giving a dreamy atmosphere!

For the most part I tend to be against characters getting killed off if it's done for shock value.

When it comes to killing off main characters, I can't say I'm fond of it. But I'm not against it. If a main dies I would prefer if it was meaningful, though. Like maybe the character has accepted it, or they sacrificed them self, or something.

I find a big no-no too is killing main characters off screen. It tends to make the reader feel cheated more often than not.

With your style, I would say thick black lines. Your style is more akin to 90s Western TV cartoons, which took advantage of thick black lines to make characters pop against the background.

WITH THAT SAID, I would use colored line for your background elements, to help with the popping effect!

I don't hang around on the forums much, but based on varying reactions to it, I think it's an "in-joke" that I am definitely not in on.

Over Tea and Coffee is a concept I created recently that is very close to home and heart. In it I hope to tackle gender issues, family relationships, and over all still have a good time while the main characters find out they still have much to learn about this world and themselves, be it a life changing revelation, or the simple realization that they still like kids anime.

I hope you join me on this adventure and grow to love these characters like I have while developing them. This is Over Tea and Coffee.

Yeah! :0

It should be free to watch on Crunchyroll by now! They split it into four episodes for episodic viewing. o/

Alright! Time to try and reply! òwó/)

First off, thank you so much for the awesome review! I'll try to do my best with the feedback given! o/ Thank you so much for all the input! (And yes, it was very much like hugs from a baby puppy uou/)

now on to the replies!

buffylove: So, for instance, in Chapter 5 when Inari visits Izanami-sama, I don't really know what they are talking about. I mean, I remember the spirit that came through, but then there's the demon and life and...yeah.


I actually think it's funny you chose this scene as an example since this is definitely something I plan to explain later (since it's very much based on my take on the kitsune lore and how they relate to the Kami/goddess Inari). THAT SAID, I am interested in what you would like some more explaining of in the chapters to come. Book two will have a lot of introspection on the characters and what it means to be human/kitsune/ect. so it would be easy to add a sentence or two of anything missing, if it wasn't already planned. (or heck, maybe even in like... a Bestiary type thing. I'm open to suggestions.)

I will admit, younger me was scared of exposition, so I can definitely see things not making sense. Hopefully I can cover all these holes in book II. (Though, I still don't plan to explain everything at once. I kinda want to keep people guessing, muwahahahah. >w> )


buffylove: Let's start with the art. For the most part, the cartooning is excellent. This absolutely publishable quality. I could easily see it with Boom! Studios or any other all-ages publisher. There are spots/pages that feel a little rough, and when you switched to color there are some pages that feel too speed-paint-ish, but overall this is great stuff. This is the kind of comic I could show to any non-webcomic person and they would accept it as professional.


Ohhhh my gosh. /v\ Thank you! That's really good to hear!

And yes, it took me a while to really get a grasp of the colored pages, so the "speed paint" look makes sense. I'm glad, how ever, to hear my efforts are paying off. I can only keep trying to improve, right?


buffylove: And the writing. Now I mentioned my big problem with the writing (which might be just my problem...maybe most of your readers understand the mythology already), but aside from that the writing feels really good. It has a nice flow. There's a feel of discovery, of tension, a building of character that is very well done.


Good! òwó/) Those three things are definitely main goals I was aiming for in the writing! I'm glad to hear they're showing!




Thank you again for the review! I'm really stoked to hear you enjoyed it, and I'll definitely take your feed back into consideration! Again, hopefully I will be able to fill the current holes in future chapters. I've got a lot of ground I want to cover, so at this point I just gotta keep moving.

Anyway, hope you have an awesome day! >w</) Take care!

@jolle

After you're done with the Ghibli films (I'm assuming its Spirited Away and Kiki's Delivery Service, as mentioned) I'd definitely recommended looking for anime based on what you enjoy in other media.

Anime is not it's own genre, and there is a lot to choose from. Yeah, a lot of it is not great, but that doesn't mean there is nothing there. It's really a matter o personal taste.

It was technically supposed to be a movie (It got broken up into episodes later), with omegamon as a selling point. I didn't mind it so much because stuff never really made sense in regards to evolution anyway.

maybe it'll be explained later. Who knows.

I don't really keep up with anime seasons and stuff, but I recently got into Osomatsu-san and have really enjoyed it so far! It's pretty over the top but there just something really charming about it.


Of course I also enjoyed the first digimon tri movie. òwó/)
