Information about Lauraeffingiero! (Exciting! Because we all want to know it, of course!)
Okay, first of all, Laura is my real name. The 'iero' refers to Frank Iero, the rhythm guitarist for My Chemical Romance. I made this account a while ago, when I liked that band a lot (and liked Frank even more.) However, in the bit since, I've gotten over that whole thing. It occurred to me that listening to (worshipping) music that made me want to dye my hair black, layer on the eyeliner, and cut myself was not exactly good (not that I ever cut myself - don't make assumptions here, I just didn't think it was that bad). Now I feel like glorifying physical pain is a disgusting thing, especially when there are people who fight this urge every day and do not think it is beautiful or romantic in any way, but I'd rather not change my name because it would be silly now and impossible for anyone to find me.
So, general info. I'm pretty young, as in not married, not out of college, all that jazz. I love reading and writing, knitting, cooking, baking, etc... I like to draw as well. Basically, if it's an artsy, solitary pursuit, I've probably dabbled in and enjoyed it. My favorite color is red. This is probably unimportant. But now you know.
You may notice I'm a beta! There's a reason for this, and that reason is that I love editing nearly as much as I love writing. If you want/need any form of beta, please PM me – I'd love to help out! Of course, if it's a category I'm unfamiliar with, I can't help with characterizations, but I'm still glad to do that whole grammar thing.
My favorite books: I'm not picky. If the romance or adventure is coherent and not too snappy and the characters have real emotion, I probably like it. Harry Potter is way up there, and I do love some of the fluffier teen stuff like the Confessions of Georgia Nicholson series and the Percy Jackson series. Right now my obsession is Fire by Kristin Cashore. I do love Jane Austen, though her work is honestly barely romance and more a study of life and class in Victorian England (still so great, but SOMETIMES THERE NEEDS TO BE A LITTE MORE SEXUAL TENSION THAN THAT. ASBHFDJLANKEJ WHY MUST THERE BE NO KISSING).
My favorite bands: Simon and Garfunkel, The Decemberists, Regina Spektor, Ingrid Michaelson. Then there's One Direction AND BEYONCE WHO'S MY QUEEN I LOVE HER I DON'T EVEN KNOW IF I WANT TO MARRY HER OR BE HER OR BE ADOPTED BY HER I JUST NEED MORE BEY IN MY LIFE. Basically my music taste is a weird mix of hipster snob and pop-loving dork.
My favorite movies: Okay, I have to say, looking at what I had written here, that it was a total lie – my favorite movies are, and always will be, the Lord of the Rings Trilogy. You just can't beat how badass those movies are. I've seen them so many times I've memorized nearly every single line. Would that I could write a friendship as beautiful as Frodo and Sam's. (NOT a movie snob - I watch anything remotely cheerful, even Barbie movies in a pinch. Not even in a pinch, actually. Just for fun. Yes, I take precious time out of my day to watch those movies. I confess it without an ounce of shame. You do realize, however, that if you actually knew who I was in real life, I'd rather die than admit to any of it. Well. Actually, did you know Barbie doesn't always end up with a man? Sometimes she just goes off and does her own thing, career, etc. Damn straight, Barbie. Respect.)
My favorite TV shows: ADVENTURE TIME HECK YES. How can so much awesome be packed into eleven minutes? I dunno, you tell me! (Also, I just realized I left Avatar off, and that just has to be on here! The most hilarious and touching show ever.) Also Bones. And Psych. AND TEEN TITANS WHICH IS SUPER GREAT TOO AND ALSO TTG. Man, Merlin. Okay, Firefly. Also Samurai Champloo, Fairy Tail, Danny Phantom, Soul Eater, Ouran High School Host Club, and Full Metal Alchemist. Damn, when did I start watching so much TV? This is why I literally never study. I'm actually horrified by myself now.
Info on Story Updates:
JatD: It's like 14 pages and still not freaking done. I know it's been forever and I feel terrible about that, but I've written probably about 15 other pages that I absolutely hated and had to delete. This crap is not easy for me to write. Gunther's a butthead to characterize and I don't write in first person anymore so Jane's difficult too. ANYWAYS, I will try to have it done and up as soon as possible! Love to everyone who is waiting through this mess.
Adventure Time: Chapter 9 is up!
