In the spirit of honoring my origins on tumblr (3 times terminated U_U) I thought it’d be nice to have an ask-box similar to the one on my blog for those who are too shy to reach out publicly <3.

If it’s a commonly enough asked question, it’ll end up over on the FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTION section – which may be worth checking out before you ask your thing here.

Otherwise though, have at it!

Your question has been sent! It will appear on this page once I've answered it 😀

    I hear you are going through some rough times with your social media presence and have an uptick in your hate messages. It's tough times out there for lesbians. I hope you are taking good care of yourself.

    Is Lex bi? 👀 Her dialog on one of the pages hints that she finds men attractive, even if she doesn't particularly find them interesting
    • rustyhearts replied:
      Yep! If you check out her meet the cast page, I've listed hers (and everyone else's sexuality)! Alexis is bisexual, and that comment about men was definitely meant to indicate that. She's in the camp of "Oh yeah I find men attractive, but... then.. they speak and say.. stupid shit. Men are better seen and not heard uwu"

    I identify as trans and I know what your opinions on transitioning are, but I have to say that I love your comic like no other. The way you write your characters makes them feel so realistic. And your art is very inspiring - you made such improvements over the years. I can't wait to see more of Jaden, Riley and especially the Yonique Crew - Shez and Parniya are my faorites. Hope to be able to buy a physical copy of Leasebound soon! Would you offer international shipping?
    • rustyhearts replied:
      Thank you so much for reading, I'm so, so glad you enjoy Lease Bound! It's always a pleasure to have new readers from all walks of life. Re: print copy. I'm looking into print on demand companies that will take care of shipping - so international deliveries are definitely what I'm aiming for!

    I just want to say that I LOVE how much your style has evolved over the course of your comic! The bright colors and bold lineart make your work look so confident, and it's been a joy watching this develop alongside the story. 🙂
    • rustyhearts replied:
      Thank you so much! I feel like I'm constantly improving, and growing, and learning how to have more fun as I make LB. I love how it serves as a record of how far my art has come 🙂 Thanks so much for reading!

    Does Leasebound have a planned definitive ending? What I mean is, does the story have a finish and then you won’t work on leasebound anymore? Do you already have plans of what to do next once the complete story is finished?
    • rustyhearts replied:
      Lease Bound definitely has a planned end, yes! But I don't know exactly how I'm going to get there just yet, lol. Basically I have some very big pillar events, and character moments I know I absolutely want to be in the story and I'm slowly working my way through connecting them all. And while I have an exact line of dialogue I want LB to end on I also acknowledge that might change/evolve like much of the story so far. The end is very far away though so my focus is on making LB a quality experience before I think about any post-LB projects. I've definitely got ideas for stories I want to tell, but I'm trying to be patient/well-paced about getting to them.

    would be nice to have a fanart page on the site!
    • rustyhearts replied:
      I would LOVE to have a fanart page on the site - and have looked into different plugins that would work best. Not a lot of luck as of yet, but it's definitely something I can look further into. My second concern would be that of credit. I used to have a LB-Fanart blog on tumblr, but it was completely wiped, so I don't have an accurate source to provide neccessary credit for all the lovely works I've received. I suppose I could always do an honour system. Of like. Give me a buzz if you see your art up there, so I can credit you. Maybe a 'credit pending' under the ones that still need it. I love my fanart so much and would be so happy to display it again.
