I use these to cover mah butt



Greetings, mortal.

I am Youko Inari, though you might remember me by one of these other names:
Himemiya Inari

I respond to Youko, Inari, Ina, Kit, Kitty, or really any other variation of my username.

Anyway, a bit about me...

My role here on Gaia has changed over the years. When I first joined, it was to roleplay. I still enjoy RPing immensely, but I've run into trouble finding RPs that hold my interest and live up to my standards, so I tend to only do 1x1s with people I already know. If you want me for an RP, feel free to approach me. At the very least, I'll hear you out.

Nowadays, I spend most of my time in the WG forum. I like the games and I like the people. While I am not nearly as active on Gaia as I used to be, that's where to find me if I'm around. I've sort of held on to my RPer roots by dressing up my avatar as my characters and giving character-specific responses. It's like... diet roleplaying.

I very much like chatting, so if you ever desire to know more about me, you are welcome to engage me in conversation. ^_^

Let's get these out of the way:

Inari's FAQ

Q: Wait, you're a girl?
A: Guilty.

Q: Why is your avatar male?
A: It isn't. I guess it just looks that way sometimes? I did have the male base for a while, but what my avatar looks like and what I look like have very little in common.

Q: Sooo... pronouns?
A: Feminine IRL, but I'm not gonna get twitchy.

Q: Are you gay?
A: I'm ecstatic.

Q: Are you a furry or anything of that ilk?
A: Nope.

Q: Are you Japanese?
A: No. I speak a little of the language and I study Japanese history and folklore for fun, but I'm not Japanese. I don't live in Japan either.

Q: What does your username mean?
A: "Youko" (妖狐) is a somewhat uncommon term that is usually translated as "spirit fox." I won't pretend that I wasn't inspired by Yu Yu Hakusho's Youko Kurama. "Inari" (稲荷) is the name of a Shinto deity commonly associated with foxes. You've heard of "Moon Moon"? I'm basically "Fox Fox."

Q: Did you name yourself after the Inari's Beads item?
A: No. I predate the item by about three years.

Q: I remember you as "Himemiya Inari." Why'd you change your name?
A: Drama.

Q: Will you teach me Japanese?
A: No.

Q: Will you add me to your friends?
A: If you're not a WGer or someone I know in real life, probably not. I'm happy to chat with people, but I like to keep my friends list fairly trim.

Q: Are you on hiatus?
A: Not so much "on hiatus" as much as "largely disinterested in Gaia."
I still pop in every now and then, but I think it's safe to call me "mostly inactive"
at this point.

That ought to do it.

Moving on!

Characters and Stuff

I've been on Gaia since 2005 and I've never once touched the journal, so this ought to be interesting. I think I'll just use it to log the different character avatars I'll be using since that's a thing I'm getting into now.
