Welp

Hey all! Just wanted to let you know my computer is in the shop for repairs. My logicboard quit on me and they said it would be 5-7 days. So I will be slow to respond/notice/reblog things until then (I’m just using my phone).

And yes unfortunately I can’t update Fishbones until my computer is fixed. :(

But since I have the day off tomorrow and I’ll be bored, please send me Fishbones or Karasu asks! If you ask a character, I’ll respond with a drawing (just a sketch since I’ll have to draw it on paper haha).

twistedtragedy:

Of course they gotta have some pics with the fireworks, right? :))))

Background pics (by me) were taken during the 3rd Philippine International Pyromusical Competition. Selfie PSD by the awesome Jisuk.

Oh man, the Philippines! I’m going there in September (to Manila). Fireworks photos are so hard to take and yours came out beautifully!

Just finished the Fishbones first novel , my favorite novel. Between laughs, curses and tears I walked my way through the hardships and beauties in this book. I recommended it to everyone and even more to those who have a friend they hold so dear they wouldn’t let go off for anything in the world. I found myself thinking of my friend Mochi and how now we’ll be apart. Childhood friends since we were 9 years old. Nevertheless, this book is beautiful, Jisuk Cho remains my favorite writer and I wish her the best in her passage. I can’t wait to read the second novel. 💙📖 #fishbones #Book #novel

Fishbones is powerful because it evokes special personal memories. It’s honest and accessible. I can’t wait for the second novel to be finished, too!

 I’m sorry I can’t leave a longer comment but I’m reblogging from my phone in a coffee shop waiting for my computer repair appointment because my RAM died but… Thank you for your kind words! Notes like these make we want to write even more!

fishbones is really good but the webcomic is on hiatus and misses out stuff from the novel and the novel is good demos giorgetti is canonically queer

That scene was exceptionally well written. Beautiful and touching. 

Fishbones pronunciations!

Here I pronounce the following: Ferris Levinstein, Demos Giorgetti, Ristorante Giorgetti, Seamus Aston, Lee Seong-min, Azzurro, bubele.

Speaking of Livejournal look what I found.

List 12 of your original characters:
1.) Ferris
2.) Demos
3.) Seamus
4.) Harold
5.) Victor
6.) Nicky
7.) Julie
8.) Emily
9.) Ruth
10.) Stan
11.) Lee
12.) Brian

01) Who would make a better college professor, 6 or 11?
Depends on which class you’d rather take: Swearing in Korean II or Sleeping For 18 Hours Straight 101

02) Do you think 2 is hot? How hot?
=_=

03) 12 sends 8 on a mission. What is it, and does it succeed?
"Could you kill your cousin and boyfriend while they’re sleeping? I’ll give ya 5 dollars!"

04) What is or would be 9’s favorite book?
Wuthering Heights

05) Would it make more sense for 2 to swear fealty to 6, or the other way around?
The other way around! Though the first way would make a funny story, if he lost a bet or something.

06) For some reason, 5 is looking for a roommate. Should s/he share a studio apartment with 9 or with 10?
I think a Victor/Stan roommate sitcom has a lot of potential.

twin-anxiety asked: how'd you go about promoting fishbones after you'd written most/some of it? What's your take on how it gained popularity?

Hey, thanks for messaging me! I didn’t honestly do much to promote Fishbones other than being active on social media/websites. The novel started out on Livejournal (which is now kind of dead and no longer updated). At the time, it was a great way to interact with readers through comments and it gained its initial following there (about 1.4k readers). Now I use Tumblr — unfortunately, Tumblr isn’t very good for communication but fortunately some people have been kind enough to leave me feedback on the website’s comments sections.

Anyway I kind of went off on a tangent. To be honest I’d say it was the artwork… I think if I wasn’t an artist, it would have been much harder to get anyone to read my story. I drew the characters a lot and posted them on my website and on DA, which got people curious about their backgrounds and stories. I’m pretty sure that’s the reason, haha.

keikie-dont-touch-me asked: Is karasu complete?

The first book of Karasu is complete! The second book is on hiatus for now. In the meantime, I’m working on Fishbones II, which updates about once a week.
