Hey there everyone!

Whether you have or haven't been here before, I want to let you lovely profile stalkers know that I've switched my PenName to ease some confusion. It used to be 'ykwyh26.' I have since changed it so you lovely people don't have to randomly mash letters/numbers on your keyboard and hope you get relatively close! Now you all know to just call me 'Kay' with relatively minor hassle involved! -... well, I hope you do at least. BUT for the record, my YouTube and deviantART accounts still have 'ykwyh26' as my username (because those sites are turds and won't let me switch 'em). You can find those here:
Kay's YouTube
Kay's deviantART

Anywho, here are some basic things you should probably know about me:

First and foremost, I am an editor before I am an author. My beta work will always come before any of my own stories, but that doesn't mean I won't take a crack at writing (trust me, I'm trying to work on it)! I do have a Beta Profile all set up, but until I actually publish something, I'm SOL on declaring myself "officially open for business." So until then, I work under the table...a black market beta, if you will ;-P

Here's a list of a few of my current authors (because I love shameless plugs and you really should go read their work!):
Hellie Ace
George deValier
BonsaiBabe
Itanohira
CeeKim
fanningfireflies

Unfortunately, I will not be accepting beta requests from any new authors until further notice. I'm sorry if this news bursts your bubble, but there are plenty of other amazing betas on this site that are available. Take some time to look through the lists and I'm sure you'll find one who suits your needs (rather than someone who just happens to be the beta for an author you admire).

Secondly, I stalk my profile views like crazy. I get really excited when I see people from half the world away actually clicking on my profile (especially since I don't have any stories up yet). I absolutely love it when I find out people are creeping on me. Makes me feel better about creeping on everyone else...because I totally do.

And finally, the story behind my former PenName. I feel like I owe my previous moniker at least a little explanation. One of my favorite games to play is listening to my iTunes on shuffle and trying to assign a fandom to each song...the ones I feel like anyways. I call this game "You'll Know When You Hear," and my longest game was 26 rounds (hence 'ykwyh26'). The chosen pair isn't always yaoi and it isn't always Hetalia, but I'll be damned if it isn't fun. I absolutely adore playing with other people, so if you've got writer's block or just need a constructive means of blissful procrastination, feel free to shoot me a PM and I'll explain the rules! Heck, you may even have some fun in the process. Just don't expect a response instantaneously. It may take me a few days/weeks to get back to you, but I will answer your PMs!

Welp, I'm out for now! Thanks for visiting! I'll try be more productive!

Cheers,
-Kay


HOLY CRAPOLA! Some lovely, fantastic people have drawn me artwork that I totally don't deserve! Go check out their beautiful work here! Infinite thanks to the fabulous Fayolinn of deviantART and also to one of my darling authors, Hellie Ace (here's her dA, if you want to take a peek at her other wonderful creations! And go read her stories! I command you!).
