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: The Beatles, Simon and Garfunkel, The Decemberists, Regina Spektor. You know, people who write real lyrics. (Music snob, for future reference). OKAY EXCEPT NOW I KIND OF HAVE A THING FOR ONE DIRECTION BUT PLEASE DON'T HATE ME IT'S JUST CATCHY. Also they are all remarkably attractive, and why ignore a group with five extremely hot dudes in it? OKAY ALSO THEY'RE REALLY CHARMING AND LIKABLE AND DAMMIT I WILL LIKE ONE DIRECTION IF I WANT TO. Anyways, moving on. Other than 1D, I actually am an incorrigible music snob.

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. Aaand Doctor Who is freaking fabulous. (And Vampire Diaries is like a fricking leech it's so addicting.) Also My Little Pony, 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 eight pages, and not even done yet! But, once again, somehow all the stuff that was supposed to happen in this chapter got pushed to the next one again, and danggit, I dunno what to do. If I put everything in this one, it could conceivably become a thirty page chapter. I don't think I can do that to you guys. So I'll split it all up, but try to update much quicker than normal.

Adventure Time: Chapter 7 is up! *dances but wait no don't watch really my dancing is tragic trust me*

Random Quotes I Really Like/Think Are Hilarious!

"In the beginning the Universe was created. This has made a lot of people very angry and been widely regarded as a bad move."

"Never let your sense of morals get in the way of doing what's right."

"Art is just art. I don't know why. You don't either."

"As cities fall, may nature rise again."

"Where we're going, you won't need any pants!"

"On my planet, this is hilarious."

So, there you go! I hope that was everything you wanted to know! (That is, supposing you wanted to know anything at all. Well, I guess you must have, since you clicked on my profile. Drop me a PM if you ever want to chat!)
