Favorite Pairings: Wait, why do we call them “pairings” when there are so many different possibilities? I mean, why can’t we call them “matches” so we don’t exclude the triads and the quads and whatever else people find themselves doing? Think if it this way: if three people are all wearing the same outfit, does it makes sense to say that they are wearing pairing outfits? Nope! They wear matching outfits. The same is true if we are talking about only two people. So, why not change the convention and call them matches instead? After all, most of us writers are matchmakers.
Favorite Matches: My particular version of the Kaiba family is modeled on the fraternal polyandry of Tibet with a few twists. Since the Kaibas must keep their arrangement secret from their friends, they face difficult situations. In addition, they find themselves expanding their horizons in their mid-thirties when they encounter a secret society that practices non-monogamy and seeks to right the injustices of society. As for the rest of my matches, just scroll down and read my stories!
My own experience with non-monogamy is very limited, but has been very gratifying. Although I fantasize about having a full-blown polyamorous relationship, I was in what appeared to be a monogamous relationship to any outside observer for five and a half years. I lived with one boyfriend and cooked dinner for just the two of us almost every night. However, we both had (and I still have) some long-distance lovers and occasionally hooked up with another couple for a night of erotic fun that left us both feeling wonderful the next day. Non-monogamy is not what destroyed our relationship in the end. Our disagreements stemmed from other factors. Oh yeah, and the fact that he got into meth. That had a lot to do with it. Don't do drugs, kids!
Although I like men most of the time and prefer to read heterosexual fics, I strongly support Yaoi and Yuri writers. Yaoi occasionally tickles my fancy if it is especially well-written mainly because I am not male and therefore I am incapable of having a male-male sexual experience. As for Yuri… I’ve been there personally. I generally prefer it if a man is involved, but for the right woman… who knows?
I think I know why many of you are reading my stories, but not reviewing them. It's the same reason why I'm not using my real name. I know you are there from the traffic stats, and I just want to let you know that I understand. If you want to send me a private message sometime, I won't tell anyone :)
Kari Rakitan is my pen name, but I use is for other purposes as well. I have never cared much for my legal name, so if you have met me under this pseudonym in real life, please do not be offended. I generally go by a nickname anyway. Since it is not the one I use most frequently, it helps keep my budding professional life and my personal life separate.
“In a society in which it is a moral offense to be different from your neighbor, your only escape is to never let them find out.” --Robert Heinlein

The Best Democracy Money Can Buy
I had a conversation with David Rovics once. It went something like this…
Me: (leaning over his stacks of CDs and giving him a flirtatious glance) Which CD has “The Best Democracy Money Can Buy?”
David Rovics: That one has never been put on CD
Me: Can you sing it for me?
David Rovics: I don’t know it.
David Rovics: I forgot it.
Me: (still in shock) I guess I know it better than you do.
David Rovics: I’m sure you do.
Me: (devious grin)
I am listing these in chronological order of events, not the order in which they were written. All of these stories take place in the same alternate universe.
