About

Short in stature. Loud only on demand. Journalist of gaming/actors/TV and stuff. Voice actor for everyone. Author of books. In love with Tobirion but nobody tell her, it's a big secret.


Updates

I am pretty much migrating to Archive of Our Own (find me here) - I just prefer the website formatting, documenting, and community functions!

OTP
I SHIP EVERYTHING WHAT IS AN OTP? - without seme and uke rules. Switching it up is much more fun.

Current Pairing Obsessions
Temar/Catwin (from the trilogy of Light and Shadow). SMASH MY HEART AND STAB ME IN THE BACK. URGH.

Hogwarts House
I am a Huffley-puff.

Username
My username (roughly) means: the realm of willow trees and blossoms. A 'karyukai' is generally the name of a geisha entertainment district. It's (not surprisingly) from Japanese and I thought it was fitting, especially as my real name is Willow Wood. My parents did considered calling me Holly Wood for a time, but thought that was too cruel.

Who do you write for?
I mainly doss around in the Final Fantasy section. Zack Fair is my favourite character; although it's close between Lightning, Balthier, and Fang. I'm currently dabbling with a SuperWhoLock crossover and a Mass Effect story.

Beta/editing requests [closed]
I generally edit for Final Fantasy (VII and up), Skyrim, Persona4 or Mass Effect. That doesn't mean you can't ask if I'll read others! I'm involved with a lot of fandoms: books, films, gaming, comics, anime - far too many to list here. I can only say no, I'm not going to bite you. I promise. All ratings welcome.
