I used to be Emma Kathryn, then I changed to Menlathiel, and now I'm back. ;-)

I'm just your average highschooler, living on a rock in the middle of the ocean. (Hey, that description technically fits every geographical location on Earth. So why shouldn't I use it?) I'm incredibly busy, but I'm striving to get back into the run of things. I have works posted both here and on FanFiction.net, and I'm constantly producing! My Fiction Press works:


This was, obviously, written on the day of Tuesday, September 11th, 2001. It details some of my feelings of that time that I'm sure many share. This is a tribute to all those who lost their lives or the lives of loved ones in the terrorist actions of that day.


A companion poem to "91101" - the feelings of irritation at the world and what's happened since September 11th, 2001 as recorded on September 11th, 2002.

Thoughts for a Snowy Day

A little cutsie poem I wrote for English class a few weeks ago. The goal was to use the word "back" and the derivitaves thereof as many times as possible (without being redundant, of course). It turned out to be a pretty cute little endeavor.

Eleandred: or "For the Love of Katrina"

A very fun dramatic verse written one day at school when I was SUPPOSED to be doing my spanish homework. I think it was worth it, though. ;-)

Beautiful Danger

This was written after a huge winter storm swept through my home state and wreaked utter devestation, including a power outage of nearly a week in some places. It's a meditation on the everpresent danger in beautiful things, and it's definitely one of my better works.

The Swing

This is my FAVORITE poem I've EVER written. There's an old tree-swing behind my grandfather's house where I go to think. A bittersweet half-metaphorical poem about change and nostalgia.

"Are we yet at war?"
This is a poem I wrote the night of March 19th. I hadn't been sure all evening of the exact time Bush had set for Hussein, and so the entire evening was spent in babysitting and trepidation. . .until the news came.

To read my fan fictions (including a full-length Harry Potter novel) check out Fan Fiction.net, where I am also Menlathiel.

Are we yet at war? reviews
My thoughts on the evening of March 19th. My prayers are with all of the soldiers in Iraq, and all of the innocent Iraqis unable to flee.

The Battle of Caran Tidd reviews
A delightfully fun nonsensical poem, starring purple "kippsens", "rumblous stormy rouds", and bravehearted "peoplefolk". Modeled in the style of L. Carroll's "Jabberwocky".

The Swing reviews
There's an old tree-swing at my grandfather's house that I've walked to ever since I can remember. It doesn't fly freely like it used to, but now it's my thinking-spot. (My favorite poem!)

Beautiful Danger reviews
Meditations on the danger that almost always lurks behind unutterable beauty. This was written after a huge winter storm knocked the power out all over the state.

A cutsie little poem I had to write for English, seeing how many times I could use "back" and the derivitaves thereof in a poem.

I'm rating this PG because it is so intense. This is a poem written the night of Tuesday, September 11th, trying to combat some of my feelings about Tuesday's events. Please read. I won't beg for reviews, but I'd like a few opinions.
