[ - About - ]

    I'm different names to different people, but y'all are free to call me Swiftlet, Swifty, Rae, Raicho, etc. As is implied, my penname used to be Raicho Kurubi; but with the reboot of the site, I felt like a personal change was in order, too.

    Updated as of June 13, 2016

    You may have noticed I deleted several stories. All of the ones in progress, as it happens.

    I can't say where I expect my writing to go from here; this hiatus has lasted several years, on and off. And I'm just not certain I want to do this anymore.

    From now on, any multi-chapter'd stories I decide to post will be labeled WIPs. Feels like a good idea to give full disclosure for those, as I can't be certain I'll be able to promise more than ~forever works in progress~.

    I know there were a few of you who still followed some of the stories I deleted, and to you lovely people, I sincerely apologize. Your support and interest has meant more than you can imagine, and at heart, I hope to bring them back someday. And you can be sure that, should I do so, the quality will have improved. (So it's kind of a good thing?)

    As it is, thank you everyone who's reached out to me over the course of my long hiatus. I love hearing from you, and I want you to know that I think of you all often. b29;
