I'm always trying to improve, so constructive criticism is always appreciated. I'm not good at responding to reviews unless I've been asked a question, since I feel awkward and never know what to say, but I love to hear from readers and I'm trying to do better both at writing reviews and replying to them.
I've been working on a few chaptered fics as their respective muses cooperate, but it feels like I'm demonstrating Xeno's paradox: always forward to halfway between where I was and where I mean to be, with actual progress being an illusion. Needless to say, it will be a while before anything sees the light of day!
About The Fox and the Wizard: Each chapter is a one-shot. All chapters have in common Kurama being in some way responsible for Harry Potter. The "Spirited Away" storyline is becoming a series; so far, it is developed in Chapter One and then Five. The "Capriciousness" storyline runs through Chapters Six and Seven.

I tend to use Japanese names and terms in my writing, so here's a pronunciation guide:
(With the caveat that I’m not a linguist)
a – ah as in father
i – ee as in keen
u – oo as in boo or Rufus
e – French é, halfway between bay and bet
o – oh as in cold or boat, pronounced almost as if an ‘l’ follows
tsu – as “cats oops”
j and z – harder than in English, almost as if preceded by a ‘d’
r – flatten your tongue as if to trill a Spanish ‘r’, then tap the tip where your teeth meet the roof of your mouth; it sounds halfway between ‘d’ and ‘l’
a doubled consonant indicates that the consonant is preceded by a pause (a glottal stop): “datta” is like three musical beats: “da_ta”
