I'm a linguist by nature, a writer by calling. I love not only words, but other methods of communication. I've studied a couple dozen languages, although I've only gone in depth in Spanish and Japanese (and even those I'm not yet fluent in). I'm a conlanger with several languages on the back burner, and if I lived to see all my other writing projects to completion I'd probably still be alive in 2835.

I'm a linguist by nature, a writer by calling. I love not only words, but other methods of communication. I've studied a couple several dozen languages, languages (latest count was something like 48, and that might be missing a few), although I've only gone in depth in Spanish and Japanese (and even those I'm not yet fluent in). I'm a conlanger with several languages on the back burner, and if I lived to see all my other writing projects to completion I'd probably still be alive in 2835.



I'm also trying to record a podfic in Japanese, and after that's up I expect to record a few in English (from random fandoms I enjoy[[note]]including LordOfTheRings (the Mellon Chronicles), Slayers, and WelcomeToNightVale[[/note]]) and then one in Italian and see which other languages I can run across. It's been time-consuming and energy-sapping to do this but I expect the finished product will be quite enjoyable for both me and my listeners!

I'm I've also trying recorded a podfic in Japanese (only one part of it posted, so far) and several in English, with an Italian one in the works. My podfic so far are mostly POI, one WelcomeToNightVale, but I also have aspirations to record a podfic in Japanese, much lengthier one from WtNV as well as some from ''Slayers'' and after that's up I expect to record a few in English (from random fandoms I enjoy[[note]]including LordOfTheRings one from ''LordOfTheRings'' (the Mellon Chronicles), Slayers, and WelcomeToNightVale[[/note]]) and then one in Italian and see which other languages I can run across. Chronicles). It's been time-consuming and energy-sapping to do this but I expect the finished product products will be quite enjoyable for both me and my listeners!


However, since recently starting my [[https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCmCyiOeedwFKB2RVBFPKbog YouTube channel]][[note]]mostly Minecraft and other games, some random animal footage, amateur cover songs, fanvids, and charity vids[[/note]], I have segued into the '''Arkylie Killingstad''' identity, thinking I ought to have one that I made myself instead of borrowed from a book. (Okay, I borrowed the surname from my favorite college professor, but that's acceptable, right?) I posted videos six days a week from October 24th, 2016, to October 24th, 2018, rarely missing an update by more than a day; since that proved unsustainable, I've switched to 1-2 vids/week[[note]](more sporadic around the holidays, when I'm focusing more on my writing[[/note]]. Not saying they're great videos, but at least regular content so far. (I've been trying to put together some more interesting vids, including a StardewValley series with a [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C_rr-GLCC5o weird plot]] about me being a [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HQltBMSAvDs fugitive]] who everyone assumes is the new farmer, but it's difficult to get noise- and distraction-free time to record sound. Still, several episodes have been posted, and I've got most of the next one recorded; I just need to put time into splicing footage to audio and crafting the additional assets for the planned vid.)

anyway.

Somewhat counter to the idea of keeping these identities separate... my Twitter handle is [[https://twitter.com/ArkylieZaniida ArkylieZaniida]]. If I recall, this was because [=ArkylieKillingstad=] turned out to be too long for the account name (sadface). I mainly use my Twitter feed to rant about things that annoy me or enthuse over neat things I encounter, but I also use it to provide information on my [=YouTube=] channel (e.g. if a video is going to be late)

'''Note:''' [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JD7Pj1mpkk4 Tiny Box Tim Day]] is [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WfEjuDCOJWc June 28th]]! It's a holiday for helping others, where you donate Time, Money, or Creativity to charity, and show appreciation to those who've made a difference in your life and don't get to hear thanks as often as they should. I created this holiday in 2016, to celebrate {{Markiplier}}'s birthday (which, hey, turns out to be FeliciaDay's birthday as well, which is funny because she played his wife in a skit once). Please check the Twitter hashtag [=#TinyBoxTimDay=] for more recent info about the effort.

Also now Oh, and the SoYouWantTo/WriteTheNextStarTrek page. Head on BooksOnTrope page, too! A reference I return to frequently.

And speaking of adding to the site... I fuzzed up a rough version of the current TV Tropes logo - the one with the lampshade
over the second T. Someone else converted the design to vector-based art, we tropers collectively haggled over colors, and improve it!
there you have it. The first piece of major art I had a major hand in. Sweet.

!!Random Other TV Tropes Stuff I've Done



I've actually suggested a lot more tropes, some of which likely got launched, and even suggested some names that got voted in, but I need to hunt them down. Doesn't help that I'm not always properly cookied up when I'm on YKTTW... but meh. More important that I add to the site than that I get credit for adding, yes?

As far as I have been able to determine, I'm the only person online, barring one other, who uses Kilyle as my ident. The name comes from t'Cael Zaniidor Kilyle, my favorite Rihannsu (Romulan) character, from the Star Trek novel Final Frontier (by Diane Carey).

!!My Interests



I love this site. I hold to the optimistic wiki model, the idea of cream floating to the top (instead of dead fish), and I look forward to seeing this site get bigger and better--heck, have already seen it doing so, [[strike:day by day]] millisecond by millisecond. I advertise it when I can, and wish my friends would see the usefulness. Eh well, nobody's interested in ''everything'' good. (ETA: Friend Eric is now hooked on this site! Hooray! Also, [[TVTropesWillRuinYourLife I mourne your loss of innocence]].)

to:

My current fandom (as of mid 2017), and the one that brought me back into the fanfic-writing game (and publishing on a collective site for the first time ever), is ''PersonOfInterest''. I love anything to do with Finch, especially related to Reese or Root, and Finch is the character I focus on most in my writing and in the scenarios I dream up. One of my current series is called ''The Many Kidnappings of Harold P. Finch'', because he is so eminently kidnappable! So far I'm about halfway through the first fic, but the idea is to have one fic per canon episode, where I find the most natural spot for Finch to get kidnapped, and write that scenario (you should see my notes).

Anyway.

!!On This Wiki
I'm nowhere near as active on
this site. site as I used to be, but I still love it -- I love that it exists, that it's something I can come back to, like a comfort blanket, and learn from, and something that feeds my enthusiasm when I want to spend time browsing my favorite shows and seeing them picked apart, analyzed, and correlated.
