carrd last updated december 27, 2021.

you are openly hateful / close-minded, or fit standard dfi criteria (racist, lgbt+phobic, etc.) i mean. i can't really prevent you from following me, but please don't interact with me; i might bite (block you).you know me in real life, unless i gave you my @ or permission. and don't use my alias irl or real name on hereyou're uncomfortable with any of my interests, ships, or faves. this one's more for you than for me—i generally don't care what you ship and i have content i don't like muted.you participate in discourse / drama often on mainyou repost other's works ( esp. without credit )

selective follow / slow to follow back sometimes. not following you back doesn't necessarily mean i don't like you! usually it's because of not enough shared interests, interests i don't want to see, untagged/excessive nsfw, excessive discourse, etc.don't feel obligated to follow me; what's important is that you're ok with what i post or my usual content.FUB free (un/follow, soft/block, mute). no hard feelings! of course, DM first if it's due to some behaviour i should change.i am 18+ (18- follows are OK on my main accounts)my mains are SFW accounts, and relatively negativity/drama-free. occasionally there will be news, though.i use tone indicators for original posts.

any questions? want to scream about fandoms? yes pleaseto politely correct me on something i'm not educated enough on, or if i'm doing something wrong. i would love to be able to improve, so don't hesitate to let me know. i'll do my best to be open-minded and civil, as long as you are, too.if you need someone to talk to. if you're a mutual, my DMs are open on twitter. i will try my best to give you advice / comfort you / listen, whatever you're seeking, but keep in mind i'm not a trained therapist.if you need something tagged, except if it's an interest i talk about a lot or a ship (outside of original posts as those are always tagged)—you might just want to unfollow. i'll try my best to accommodate.
i take messages through tumblr ask box (@kytaen) and curiouscat. twitter dms are also ok for direct questions.

↑ these sites are the ones most active on or update frequently—feel free to interact or message! will try my best to reply asap. (discord: dm me; close mutuals only. tumblr: indicate your tumblr ask with (p) if you want a private answer.)

↓ these sites are ones i'm not too active on (and really just here so i can keep track of where i have accounts since i have so many why.) they're here if you want to check them out, but i won't be there to respond to your interactions.


thank you for reading! lots of love ♡

takamine midori title

    i started producing midori on august 23, 2017, when i started the game ( and chose his 4* starter ). before the game, however, i decided to pick faves from the wikia based on descriptions alone before the game. upon seeing midori's 4* holiday party card, i went "ah! you look soft and you need protecting i'll protect you" and he was a candidate ( alongside tsumugi and hajime, though he was first. )

    he was my best boy until some point when i switched briefly ( to tsumugi & maybe projected onto him for comfort due to that year being stressful ) but... after baton pass came on jpes, and reading through midori's monologue, midori became my best boy again, and has been my best boy ever since.

    i... do have a type when it comes to fictional characters ( laughs ). the sarcastic or stand-offish ones, often the sensible ones in the group, and yet they're actually utter dorks or lovable idiots, and so, so kind in their own way. soft-looking, or has a soft demeanor. the "sad, puppy-dog look". insecure about themselves.

    there's more to that for midori, of course. i love how adorable and pure he is when it comes to yuru characters. i still love him even when he's being rude or sharp-tongued ( though i don't commend him for doing so ). he deserves the love ryuseitai gives him, deserves to be happy, and deserves all the mascot characters in the world, i mean it. and even then, there's more.

    every time i read through one of his stories, i feel rather exposed. a lot of what he does, what he says, what he's scared of, his insecurities... they relate so so heavily back to my heart that it actually, kinda hurts sometimes, to be reminded. entering a profession because it was the "easy way through". being afraid of conflict, running away from unpleasant, scary, difficult, painful things. wanting to blend in, yet feeling insignificant and "hating the me who is nothing". afraid of asking for others' help. feeling like we're dragging down people or a burden. not good at making friends or conversation. "i know you believe in me, and my wavering heart through and through"... if only someone were to be like that for me, i've thought.

    and yet... if someone like midori can grow. can find friends who love him and he loves back. can shine so bright and beautifully if he tries. can change. when he moves forward like this... maybe i can, too. maybe i can stop running away. maybe i'm changing, bit by bit, as well. maybe i can grow to become better?

    so. here's my lovemail. i love you so so much. i love your love for mascot characters! how cute & soft you are! how embarrassingly dumb you can be sometimes, your tsundere tendencies, even — your soft voice and laugh ( thank you so much watanabe-san ), your name & its meaning ( emerald green... us midoriPs call him 翠翠 ( kinda like "midoriri" ) in cnes it's the cutest thing ), your pretty, aqua-blue eye color. your teasing side ( i love this so much ). your insecurities, how although you hate trying hard, even you try your best and hardest sometimes — and how beautiful you are when you transform, when you grow alongside your precious friends, and stand on that stage with the most gorgeous, soft, genuine smile — your smile really is this world's greatest treasure.

    i'm so proud of him, always. even if change is slow, he's doing it. he inspires me ( as all of ryuseitai do, in different ways ) to face challenges, even if it's hard, and painful. to this day, even when i'm no longer playing the game, midori remains my #1 comfort character across all media it's honestly amazing.

    28/08/18 a 59-page long midori takamine analysis / lovemail document i wrote, in time for his birthday.

    13/10/18 after 1 scout, 8 solos during colorful autumn scouting period, 2 scouts in colorful autumn during unit cd revival 1, 8 scouts during midori's birthday gacha, and 6 scouts during zodiac pt. 1 scouting period, a 5* midori finally came home to me on my 19th birthday in the form of his zodiac 5* and i couldn't be happier ( ╥ω╥ )

    14/02/19 the first time i scouted for painter!midori was about two years ago. ryuseitai revivals started on valentine's day, 2019, and colorful painter midori agreed to be my valentine came home atlong last. thank you thank you thank you... you make me so happy lovey ;;

    17/06/19 i stopped playing cnenstars on this date after they announced they were going to use real-id verification. i ended at level 555, and just after getting music festa midori 4*. midori was at max level for cnes too, level 53. though i'm not playing the game anymore, i'll still remain in the franchise for quite a while longer. thank you cnenstars, and thank you midori, for the wonderful time i had playing the game!

    12/10/19 midori's initial omanjuu came home today in time for my birthday!! he's so squishy and soft i love it!

    28/08/21 it's sad that enstars wiki takes down tls on this day, but happy birthday best boy. haven't thought about enstars or played it in so long but the fact that i still love his character means something. truly a comfort character. good boy good boy (i pat his head). i remember promising to learn how to draw so i could draw him (among other reasons) and so... we'll see about that.

    if i gave you my priv:

    i.do not take screenshots or relay any information from this account to anywhere else, unless with permission + @ is blocked out. absolutely do not for personal info.

    ii.do not give anyone else my priv unless you ask me first!

    iii. — occasionally, i will post wips of original content from my oc account onto this priv. i've tried to keep my fandom main (@kytaen/s) separate from my oc account as much as possible (due to wanting to connect my oc account to IRL portfolios). thus, while you're welcome to follow my oc accounts, please do not connect it to my main @username. this means not mentioning "@kytaens" or my alias "kyt" on my oc account, e.g. through comments on instagram or twitter, whenever possible. thanks a bunch!

    iv.— you are welcome to like / reply to my priv tweets, but it's not necessary. ( i tend to treat my priv as a void anyway, so i'm not concerned if there's no interaction. )

    for your information:


    you're a mutual or have interacted with me semi-/regularly, ANDyou req with a locked account.
    please note that i can be selective when it comes to who i accept into my priv.

    go through the main pages of my carrd if you haven't yet. especially the byf section. most of it applies to this priv as well, with some exceptions.this is a relatively SFW account, and mostly discourse-free. however, there will be some negativity in here, though, it being a priv account and all. (remember, muting is always an option.)muteword for long rambles is kytchat.
    anything i wouldn't be as comfy posting on main, or feel like they would crowd main. includes some fandom tweetspersonal, introspective tweetswips, oc talk, or project progressother rambles and various thoughts
