a moderator, writer, and reader/reviewer maybe a writer?
Just updated Life Lessons. The most recent update is also on AO3, so follow the story there if you would like to be notified of future updates.
May 5th 2016
Fair warning, I have not been remembering to do this. Keeping Up Appearances and Transience have both been updated within the past week. The updates can also be found on AO3. Because of the fact that my stories are not updating here, I beg you all to follow me on AO3. I'm not 100% caught up yet, but I have no plans to update here until I can update there as well. I will continue to also post here as I remember to do so, but I'm going to start favoring that site just because I won't have to worry about glitches stopping people from being able to see when I post new things.

Just updated Syntax Error. Same issue. The chapter is there, but the site won't show the story as updated. Please follow me on AO3. I'm going to get everything up over there, and after that, hopefully it'll be easier to tell when I update.

I just updated Transience. No, really. I just added a chapter. Luna is glitching on me, however, and refuses to show it as updated.
I'm working on moving everything over to AO3. Please follow me there as you're more likely to know when I've updated. I left the below note from October up so that everyone could have the link.
More information to come, but just so that nobody panics, I can also be found here: http://archiveofourown.org/users/DragonSilk/
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 dracheseide[at]gmail.com
(Honestly, you're better off emailing me directly. The contact form doesn't always work.)
If I don't get back to you after a few days, feel free to try emailing me again just in case. Realistically speaking, I could take up to a week to respond (depending on how busy I am at work) but if you re-email me after about three days I won't be annoyed.
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. ♥
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.)
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?
