The Master Topic!

Greetings all! Consider this the manual for my column here on the Fan. Meaning that no one will read it and will instead learn everything by trial and error/asking me in the IRC.

I am Kayarath! Everyone pronounces it "KAI-A-RATH" in case you were wondering. Ironically, if everyone pronounces the way it was meant to be said which is "GUY-UR-WRATH" perhaps people would stop thinking I'm a girl. I have nothing against girls; my mother is one after all. However, that is a problem when I am a guy.

I am a fan of Japanese pop culture like the rest of you. Unlike the rest of you, I send in an application to the Fan while Kana was playing "let's tape all the applications to the wall and decide who we'll hire by throwing darts blindfolded!" Luckily for me, the most darts landed on my app so here I am!

My position is a "Web Producer," meaning I'll write stuff for you to read. The stuff is conveniently titled "Kayarath's Adventures." "What an amazingly original name!" you must be thinking to yourself. I would tell you what I write about but I'm not gonna tell you so you'll be completely surprised each time! I'm totally not flying by the seat of my pants and just making stuff up as I go along! Why not find out yourself by clicking on the links below? If an article has a #popular in its entry, then that one's a highlight which you should read because that represents my most popular work.

Re: The Master Topic!

Kayarath="GUY-UR-WRATH"? Wow, maybe those phonetic-spelling folks really do have a valid argument...
