/meaningful quote to catch your interest
I'm Kaitlyn, but you can call me High Mistress Kabbage.
I'm an antisocial and lame teenager with a flair for the odd. I adore art, reading, sometimes writing, daydreaming, France, and wishing for things I'll never get (like losing ten pounds). My interests change with the tides, though, and I'm always finding something else that is so amazing I need to share it with the world.
My current - and most likely permanent - fandom is that of Kingdom Hearts. I don't know why. It's really lame. But so am I, so it's all good, man.
My "unofficial" beta is Red Dye Number Three because she's my eye-are-el friend, which means I don't have to make an effort to make online friends (how sad is that?). But don't let that turn you away, I love internet friends! PLEASE BE MY INTERNET FRIEND! I'M LONELY! -deep breaths-
I like to write but alas, I'm no good at it. I end up going, "Hey, that's not so bad!" but then I read it again an hour later and just weep. I mean, I get some really snazzy ideas, but I just... can't write them. I have about seven fic ideas right now that I REALLY want to get out, but I don't want them to suck.
So, mostly, I just stick to reading.

THE KH SURVEY
(Please copy and paste this onto your profile and answer the questions! Axel says to spread the KH fever!)
SECTION ONE: The "Favorite" Questions
1. Your favorite KH guy?
There are WAY too many to pick from. No answer!
2. Your favorite KH girl?
I'm not very fond of any of them, to be perfectly honest. But Aqua, from the scant amount I've heard, is gonna be pretty snazzy.
3. Your least favorite KH guy? Why?
4. Your least favorite KH girl? Why?
I'm gonna have to say... all of them. I don't see why it's so hard for Squeenix to make a girl character that is not... so stereotypical to "useless female." ANGER.
5. Favorite World? (Includes both KH1 and KH2)
Traverse Town. It's so much better than Twilight Town =(
6. Least Favorite World?
Agrabah of KHI and Atlantica of both, but the second was way worse.
7. Favorite Weapon? (Includes both KH1 and KH2)
Oblivion - when you hit stuff, stars go everywhere! =D
8. Least Favorite Weapon?
Kairi's keyblade. I mean... WHO thought that would be a good design?
9. Fav. Summon? (includes both KH1 and KH2)
I never used summons.
10. Fav. Form? (aka. Sora's Forms)
I rarely used them. The times I did use them, I didn't pay attention to the form. OH WELL.
11. Favorite Pairing? (includes yaoi coupling) Why?
Zemyx, Cleon, RiSo, or AkuRoku. I do like Marluxia/Larxene, but I support it more as a side pairing because I've never read anything good with them as the main. Sadness =(
12. Least Fav. Pairing? (includes yaoi couples) Why?
LexZex because I'm not a fan of Lexaeus (don't get on me for being the stupid stereotypical fangirl for disliking him 'cause he's not 'bishie' or something, because that's not why).
13. Any cool crack pairings you've heard of? List 'em.
Does Xigbar X Luxord count? I like that one a lot, mainly because of How to Do Nothing at All~
14. Weirdest Pairing(s) You've Ever Heard Of?
15. Any "Kh-pet-peeves" you have?
Gross mischaracterization. I mean, sure, you can have an AU - but that does not mean they are your original characters.
16. Fav. Partner in KH? (includes both KH1 and KH2)
Beast in KHI because he was just AWESOME. And Auron for KHII.
SECTION TWO: Do you believe it, or not believe it?
17. Do you believe in the Xemnas/Saix theory?
18. Do you believe that Zexion is emo?
19. Do you believe that Marluxia is gay?
Nope, he's a lady killer. But fer srs, he's actually really manly looking - he's up there with Xaldin and Lexaeus for muscle and his face is not feminine at all. Plus, his voice...
20. Do you believe that Kairi is the most annoying character in KH?
Sadly, yes. I really wish she wasn't.
SECTION THREE: Answer Yourself!
21. If Roxas had to choose either Namine or Olette, who would you root for? Why?
Olette. Namine and Roxas are, like... brother-sister to me. I do not support RoxasXNamine at all. It's just too weird.
22. What's your theory on KH: Birth by Sleep?
None. I JUST WANT IT TO COME OUT RIGHT NOW AAAAAGGGGGHHHHH.
23. Was Chain of Memories a waste of time?
I like the story...
24. If you had the choice of meeting ONE (and ONLY ONE!) KH character, who would it be?
Demyx. He would be oodles of fun =D
25. Which KH character do you relate to the most? Why?
I can't say I relate to any of them, really, but I guess Riku. Not for obvious reasons, though. I'm not part of the dark side.
26. What's the most embarrassing moment that ever happened to you that had something to do with KH?
When I was in End of the World, at the World Terminal, I went into the Neverland place. It took me about half an hour to figure out how to get back out.
27. Have you ever cosplayed as a KH character? If so, who? If not, who would you like to cosplay as?
I would probably never cosplay period.
28. The Funniest Moment in all of KH would be...?
Anything that Demyx ever says. Mostly in 358/2 Days. "Do you ever get the urge to do something stupid... and AWESOME?!"
29. The Hardest Enemy/Boss was...?
The only one that REALLY stands out to me is Cerberus, the first fight you have with him in the Colliseum. It took me SO long to beat him. Am I the only one?
As for KH2, the very final fight with Xemnas - y'know, where he's in his... cow jacket. I went through that entire game without a challenge, and then they threw that at me. Not cool.
30. What was a good addition in KH2 that made it oh-so-addictive?
The sheer ridiculousness of it.
SECTION FOUR: Decisions, Decisions...
31. Hayner or Pence?
They're both annoying, but... Hayner is less so.
32. Zexion or Marluxia?
I am not picking between them. I refuse!
33. Riku or Roxas?
Riku. I don't actually like Roxas very much...
34. Roxas or Sora?
Sora because he's technically both of them?
35. Axel or Demyx?
36. Kairi or Larxene?
37. AkuRoku or SoRiku?
38. Namixas or Namiku?
Namiku. But why is Namine the dominant one?!
39. Zemyx or AkuRoku?
40. SoKai or SoRiku?
41. Sea Salt Ice Cream or Paopu Fruit?
Sea Salt Icecream. It doesn't screw with your destiny, it's just delicious =D
42. Cloud or Leon?
43. CloTi of Clerith?
CloTi, but I haven't ever played FF7, so I'm not as qualified as most in that respect.
44. Simple and Clean or Passion?
I like all the songs except Hikari. I don't know why, I just DESPISE it.
SECTION FIVE: The Last Section!!
45. List all the KH character you've fallen for. (This includes Final Fantasy character as well)
Riku, Leon, Cloudy Pie, Xemnas, Xigbar, Zexion, Saix, Axel, Demyx, Luxord, Marluxia, Jareth (oopsie, wrong fandom. He could totally pull it off, though).
46. What crossovers would you like to see with KH?
Wall-E. WOULDN'T THAT BE ADORABLE?!
47. Does anyone in KH look like another character? List 'em all!
Well, obviously the whole Axel-Reno thing. Axel and Setzer are long lost soul twins, of course. Oh, you didn't notice it? How unobservant of you. Oh, but I think that Marluxia and Riku actually look A LOT alike. Like, really close. Save for hair color, obviously. Terra looks an awful lot like Saix, too, which is weird.
48. Which new KH game can you absolutely NOT wait for?
BIRTH BY SLEEP BIRTH BY SLEEP BIRTH BY SLEEP. It needs to come out.
49. Do you like KH1 or KH2 better? Why?
KHI. It was so much more fun, and Riku was so much worse in the second game. I liked him being evil.
50. LAST QUESTION! What makes Kingdom Hearts one of the best games in the world!?
~THE BEST OF THE BEST~

Boys by Casey V.
It's about growing up, mostly. Sometimes it's about love and sometimes it's about friendship. Sometimes it's about hockey. But sometimes it's about the difference between what's real and what's fake, between being a boy and being a man. Riku/Sora, Roxas
Deae Ex Machina by VIII of XIII
(not located on this site - it used to be, but I had to hunt it down after I realized it no longer was)

From Out of Town by Junipertree
When Roxas first saw Axel, he figured the guy was at least half-alien. AU, AkuRoku

Perfect Match by Beutelmaus
