Okay guys. Kestral is now Genet. I have a new domain name, and I'm working on website and graphics.

My old cheekitty email address will be slowly phased out, but that domain is good til July, so no worries about getting in touch with me. I'm really excited about this change, and I think it'll be really good for me. A nice unique name, a REALLY catchy domain (THANK YOU Roho!!!), and.. new art will be available for your viewing pleasure!

I know this will be hard for a lot of my friends that know me as Kes... I just hope you guys will understand why I felt the online persona needed to change.

Thank you!! I'm working on more userpics at the moment, then hoping to do a mood icon set. :)

Oooh, genit and genat aren't gonna like this.

The both of them have matching names. If it bothered them, they'd just do what ole Kes here did.

Good thing they aren't registered, isn't it? =)

You have no idea how tempting it was to blow a few of my free codes and plague you with copycat LJs. But then I remembered my doctor said I'm supposed to be nice, so you're off the hook.

For now.

I should register them myself. ;)

how the hell did you change your lj name and have it show on my friends list?

I will definitely miss seeing your name and calling you "Kestral." Though I understand your reasons for the name change. Lanakila skreeples softly and gives you a tightly-squeezing baldie iggle feathery winged snuggle.

I just have to get used to calling you "Genet". :>

Thank you for the update!

Yours sincerely,

Re: Genet
I'll still answer to Kes, Kestral, ect of course. It'll just be difficult to find me on the mucks if you're looking for Kes

Ah! Most excellent choice! :D

I fully blame jadedfox. Once he suggested it, it kind of stuck in my brain. :)

Going to be really hard to calling you something else, as "Kestral" is inextricably linked with you as the _person_, not as a persona.

I guess I just took a really old nickname I was dubbed with in HS, and from one of my old RPG characters and...it stuck. The name is associated with the person, rather than the character now.

Whatever your reasons, I'll just try to link your name with a "persona" instead, making it easier!

I've had several different names for myself throughout my time online, because kestral was often unavailable.

I know it's gonna be hard for a lot of people to make the switch... I just appreciate all of ya'll for trying. :)

Heh, yeah. I've only ever known Kestral by her persona name, not her real name - especially since we only met once in person this past summer. Typically, I'll refer to folks by their real names whenever possible, because I'm more comfortable with it, though I'll make exceptions when people object. (And I've come across a few such folks in my travels -- and that's cool.) On LJ, it's easier to use persona names because in 99% of the cases, this lets me make direct links to their journals with the lj-user tags.

The only reason I know your first name is because I've heard Feren and the guys refer to it. :) My name is Lydia, by the way. ;)
