❀ Role: Finance, Instagram Social Media, Writer Liason❀ Bio: Hi there, I'm Kim! I love noodles, reading under the covers at night, and playing with my dog, Haru! My favorite character from BSD is Chuuya, I love SKK's teamwork dynamic, and I love all flowers but am the type of girl who would rather receive cash than a bouquet XD❀ Experience: This is my first time modding for a zine, but I have lots of experience with social media, proofreading English papers, and managing group orders, so I am really excited to see this project come to life!
❀ Role: shipping, finance assist❀ Bio: Hi, I’m Ink! Sometimes I call myself a writer, but mostly I’m a typo extraordinaire! I have a deep love for Soukoku — especially Chuuya — and I hope he is happy wherever he is in the story.Anyways, I’m super excited to join this team to help with shipping needs!
❀ Role: Graphic Design, Layout, Art Liason❀ Bio: Hi I'm Gab, your local Kyouka enthusiast :3 SKK being able to work together even tho they're in opposing factions is probably my favorite thing about them, and succulents are the best flowers...mostly because they're the only ones I don't kill instantly.❀ Experience: I have done graphic design and layout for more than ten zines, and I am also studying art right now. My favorite zines right now are Take Flight, Match Point, and Boku no Boys, but my whole zine experience can be found on my carrd.
