Hello, everyone. I am a sci-fi/fantasy kind of girl, especially if you throw in Elves and Greek Mythology! If you have any comments about anything down here and want to talk to me, feel free to e-mail me! I would greatly appreciate hearing from you! It may take me a while to get back to you, because I dearly want to do your comments and opinions justice.
I am fan of C. S. Lewis and J. R. R. Tolkien especially, both their fiction and their general ideas. I read a lot of Mercedes Lackey, Tamora Pierce, L. E. Modsett, and Michelle West, and I have read a lot of Star Trek/Wars stuff.
I did not see the need for what I am about to say before, but I shall write it now. I am a Christian, and much of what I write would only be correctly interrpreted by those already Christians. Unless I mention something is apologetic in nature, I am speaking to Christians rather than trying to explain my beliefs to anyone outside Christianity. If anyone wanted me to explain the same things to a non-Christian, I would. And I would also try to be sensitive to the fact that you don't believe what I'm saying (initially at least) and may find much of it offensive. Every religion, faith, and ideology is offensive to the people outside of it (and perhaps to the people inside). I would challenge you to find one that isn't. So, please, I ask you to keep in mind that, if you are a non-Christian reading Christian stuff, you are likely to find it nonsensical or offensive. Let us be loving towards one another, shall we? As for the Christians, shall we demonstrate some of the Grace that God has so generously bestowed upon us? Let us remember to speak the truth in love.
As for the Wretched Condition of Man--that's only a piece of the larger puzzle, so don't take it out of proportion. By all means, do not read it to be cheered up! The other, nicer piece is in the Birth of the Spirit.
"The Restoration". Wow, this is the only completely original story I have up here at the moment. I couldn't really talk about what's in the story on the summary, so I'll talk about it here. "The Restoration" is about a race of people on the other side of the galaxy to the galatic northwest that have been subjugated by another people for around two thousand years. This story is about their awakening and the subsequent revolution. It starts off more mild sci-fi but it will go fantasy very shortly. If you like any of my other stuff, I would encourage you to give it a try. If you are a Christian and want to read fantasy with a Christian world view . . . step through the door.

The essays on various points of Christianity are: "Behold the Heavens and the Heavens of Heavens", "Shock", "An Allegory of Light?", "Shadows", "the Birth of the Spirit" (which is an allegorical poem), and "the Wretched Condition of Man" (also a poem which ought not be taken out of context of the greater whole. Please don't do that. And if you think I am saying something dreadfully in error, just ask me about it.)

Thanks for listening--Na Liralien lain Hiyalin Elolil lai Nalowin fanaedi eloir yaela.
