DragonSilk is a moderator, writer, and reader/reviewer.
More information to come, but just so that nobody panics, I can also be found here: http://archiveofourown.org/users/DragonSilk/
Working on Keeping Up Appearances. I also had a few hundred words written out for Life Lessons, but I decided that the scene I was working on didn't really work. The next chapter for that is going to kind of set the stage for some stuff... so I really need to consider how I do it. (I'm also having trouble with opening the chapter.)
Some work has been done on Daydreamer's, and I really really want to get back into A Handful of Bullet Shells.
I've started carrying a notebook to work with me. I'm handwriting out bits and pieces of various stories when I have downtime. I've been working on Life Lessons, A Handful of Bullet Shells, and Daydreamer's Nightmare.
I have a two shot I'm looking into posting up, possibly tonight. It was going to be a one shot, but it's too long, and I'm too uncertain.
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. ♥
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?
