Kunabee Creations

Welcome to my website. I'm Shiloh Osheen, also known as Kunabee Tiger. I'm a mid-twenties writer, primarily a poet, although I write fantasy stuff. I dabble in code and game design, as well. You can find everything I currently have published under the 'writing' link on the navigation above. If you're on desktop, I have a 'site projects' dropdown that lists whatever I'm messing around with on this website; on mobile, it's just listed in the menu (which you can access by clicking the arrow). Please note the site projects will have broken links and empty pages.

I use they/their/them pronouns and ne/nir/nem pronouns. I'm nonbinary. I'm transgender. I am being very explicit here about my identity because there is some confusion at times when it comes to queer identities, and I want to clear that up as much as possible.

The most important thing about me, I think, is that I am a poet. That's quickly followed up by the fact I am queer, Autistic, and disabled. These facts impact every aspect of my life. It makes me something of a "rights activist", you could say, although I'm not always the best at my activism. I do my best to prop up voices that can say things better than I ever could and support people who need it. I value representation, and try to do that in what I create - different neurotypes, races, cultures, religions, abilities, etc, all feature in my stories.

I definitely love poetry. I find poetry to be the purest connection to the soul; when I write a poem, I am channeling my emotions and my thoughts. My favorite poem is definitely Invictus by William Ernest Henley, although my favorite classical poet is Emily Dickenson. Believe it or not, I haven't read a lot of contemporary poets (I'm talking 2000s, 2010s, 2020s). It's kind of hard to find stuff by new poets when you have no idea what you're looking for.

Of course, there are more wonderful things out there than poetry. I love video games, for one thing. Undertale has my whole heart and soul. Playing it was genuinely, unabashedly, life-changing for me. Stray is another favorite of mine. Kitty! Beyond that, I like farming games, simulations, and rpgs. I'm very much a 'peaceful farming sim' kind of person; give me a game I can relax with any day.

When it comes to what I write, my poetry is focused on emotions and feelings. Most of it is drawn from my life, although a chunk of my poems tell stories elsewhere. My gamemaking and prose share similar ideals: topics of bigotry, friendship, and equal rights in a fantasy setting. The world is a scary, painful place, and I process that through everything I write. Hopefully, reading my creations can help you process things, too. At the end of the day, the world is filled with love and hope, too, despite all of the terrible things.

You can find me all kinds of places. I have a Goodreads author page and an Amazon author page. Then I write fanfic over on good ole Archive of Our Own (or AO3). I have been informed linking your formal writing and your fanfic is a bad idea, but that ship sailed years ago for me. If you're looking for my games (just a small collection right now, but I hope to have more soon), you can meander on over to my itch.io. The only social media I have is a Facebook page that I... really need to be active on. I still have an active Tumblr, but I'm waiting to be kicked off or for Tumblr to go under; and I have an account on Twitter, Instagram, and Reddit, but use none of the above. I might get on Instagram. If you see someone claiming to be me on any social media besides Facebook or Tumblr: that's not me. I have those accounts, but social media is all going bellyup with foolish decisions and an overreliance on algorithms and I'm not here for it.

Thank you for visiting, and I hope you enjoy your time here.
