DragonSilk is a moderator, writer, and reader/reviewer.
This past week sucked. I got rear ended by some dude who wasn't paying attention to the road (even though five lanes were turning into three due to construction--why wouldn't you expect the freeway to slow down you moron). I also was told that I'm slowly going blind. (Hello cataract even though I'm only twenty-three. I'm apparently an old woman.) I also worked the holiday because I get paid overtime to do so and volunteered. (It would have been nice to have it off...)
So, I really am in the mood for Kaiba stuff. Possibly I'll be able to finish a oneshot I've been working on for a while. I also have a chapter of Keeping Up Appearances nearly ready. Maybe Transience will see an update too.
How do I contact DragonSilk?
I want to talk to you because of reasons.
The easiest way to contact me directly is through my email. You can either use the 'Contact Author' form on the side of the page, or email me directly at roseus[dot]cynicus[at]gmail[dot]com
(Honestly, you're better off emailing me directly. The contact form doesn't always work.)
If you just want to hear from me, I have a livejournal that I use for random writing-related posts. The livejournal is strictly for fanfiction and I don't spam it with nonsense. (Which means it doesn't get updated that often really.)
I also recently got a tumblr (mostly so I could follow all the Kaiba blogs *hopeless fangirl is hopeless*). It's more personal and less about my fanfiction. So far it seems like it'll be Kaiba pictures, quotes I like, fanfiction recommendations (YES, those are going there now), etc. So I think most of it will be relevant to your interests (but no promises, because I am a random person).
Links to the livejournal and tumblr are both found at the top of the page. ♥
A last option would be facebook. I'm a member of the Kaiba Lunatics Anonymous. It's a private group, so you have to be friends with someone already in the group to get added, but it's a lot of fun! (If you don't know anyone in the group, just drop me an email, and I can always friend and add you. I just don't want to post a link to my facebook here.)
And I know I don't talk about myself much, but feel free to call me Kat. (Or Dragon, or DS, or some other form of my username if that makes you comfortable.)
Help! I'm having issues with the site. D:
I'd be happy to help you out with that. Drop me an email, explain your problem, and be sure to let me know what your username is. (It's hard to help you when I don't know who you are on the site.) If I don't respond to an email about a site-related problem after two days or so, feel free to resend the email.
You may also email me and ask me to look over your story in the queue, but please don't do so unless your story has been in the queue for over two weeks.
Do you beta?
This has a mixed answer. Yes, I do. However, I am not available for full-time beta reading. If you want me to look over something you're unsure about, or you want to bounce an idea off of me, go for it! Send me an email, message me on facebook, whatever. I'll be sure to get back to you as quickly as possible. :D (And anyone in the facebook group can tell you that I am willing to bend over backwards to help people out if they're writing about Kaiba.)
Heck, even if you just want my opinion on something, don't be afraid to ask. My opinion might not be 100% positive, but I do my best to be helpful and constructive.
The song list for Summer Skin can still be found here.
(It's not going to be the most accurate thing in the world while I give Summer Skin a facelift though.)
Constructive criticism is always wanted. I know I have room for improvement, especially when it comes to awkward phrasing and scene transitions. (Seriously. I end up working on both of those things whenever I edit chapters. It's probably why my word count spikes when I do mass editing.) So if something feels jerky or abrupt, please point it out.
...and don't tell Kaiba I have cute pictures of him here. We don't want my bio hacked do we?
