Greetings. I am Rachel, and this website has existed in some form for sixteen years now. Currently, I'm trying to fix things and make them relatively respectable. Hopefully I succeed! Because I have lots of other content ideas that I want to begin after that.
I celebrated my tenth anniversary by making a blog, which also serves as a revival of my old "commentaries." I've also begun experimenting with feed technology, as you can see below. News from the news blog is indirectly displayed here by these means. Some of that currently relies heavily on third-party services, but that will hopefully change in the near future.
If you're still not sure what this site is, then don't worry, because neither am I. At the moment, this page simply serves as a hub of my many projects, which I've dubbed Magikarp46 Productions. The current design and the recent feed implementation are meant to help transition into something more organized and integrated.
And if you're wondering about the banner, then the answer to just about every question is, "It's intentional." You can read here for a further explanation. It's been updated for 2011 since then, and some of it may get fixed up again in the near future, but it's not a priority right now.

But I won't be making excuses this year. Instead I'll be making a sort of promise that I might actually be able to keep. For 2016 and the 16th anniversary of my website stuff, I'll be posting 16 updates over the next 16 weeks. Once a week for roughly four months. It seems pretty doable considering a lot of things I have partially complete, and considering I just won NaNoWriMo for the first time in November. There was also a time in the ancient past when I updated even more frequently than that. But at the same time, I can't help but think "oh shit I've made this big public declaration and now I'm gonna screw it up." Overall I'm pretty optimistic though.
Below will be a blank numbered list from 1-16, ready for content updates to be edited in each week. More motivation to succeed, and more embarrassment if I fail. They'll also be in their respective sections like normal updates, of course, so you don't have to worry about refreshing this post or anything.
