Author News: Been having some issues with my laptop. It has these glitches that cause the computer to completely shut down at random times and restart itself, which I assume are caused by too much activity at once, but the battery pack came loose last year and I've had to be careful picking up and handling the laptop since..and I figure that has something to do with these glitches. It has also become somewhat slow and sluggish. So I don't feel comfortable writing on this computer as you can imagine. I have unfortunately lost work on a couple of occasions where the damn thing has shut itself down. The good news is, I've got a brand new laptop on its way to me. I'll be using it to write on and do important work. I'm still keeping a hold of this one, though. For storing all my media, like pictures, music and videos, etc. It's still working okay, besides the glitches and slowness, and it has a few keys missing. It just needs a reboot and to be patched up. Till I receive the new laptop, I'll be cautious about writing.
Hello, there. I am Laura-Jane. Call me Laura. Or LJ. Welcome to my profile.
If you're reading this now, you've probably discovered one of my stories and wanted to know more about me. Not much to tell; I'm 36 years old, I live in the UK, I'm a professional Florist, and I enjoy writing. And reading. I just love to get lost in a book.
I struggle with my concentration and focus, though, which inhibits my writing a great deal. I suffer with depression and anxiety, which is why I write. It's a hobby I find therapeutic. I don't have the free time as I once did when I first joined up here, but I'm still active, and will continue to write and post for this site for as long as it's up and running.
As you can see, I write mainly for Hellraiser, which is a Clive Barker Gothic horror/fantasy classic. I'm not sure how or why, but I got completely sucked into the HR community and writing stories for the series...and HR isn't my favourite horror movie whatsoever. I can take it or leave it. I love Pinhead though. He's a fantastic, layered, nuanced character who unfortunately is terribly underrated and overlooked in the horror community. That's probably why I write HR fanfics. I feel he's deserving of more love and respect. That, and I ship him with the first two movies' final girl, Kirsty. I mean, those two have some serious chemistry. I never understood why they never became a thing, especially with Clive 'I love me some dark romance in a horror setting' Barker. XD
I'm sorry, though; I have never warmed to the term 'Hell Priest' for Pinhead, or even just 'Priest'. I just...I'm sorry, I hate it. I just feel it was a huge cop out for Barker to tease about Pinhead's 'real' name prior to The Scarlet Gospels release, and have us all believing it was going to be this unique otherworldly name only to reveal...Hell Priest. Or... just... Priest. Huge let down, considering in this story, all male Cenobites are called 'Hell Priest'. It was more like a formal title, than an actual name. Also, I hate TSG, as Pinhead was a thug who brutally raped an old woman to death! So yeah...I'm pretty much gonna associate the term/name 'Hell Priest/Priest' with rape-y edgelord Pinhead. So screw that. Of course, Pinhead isn't his name and it's more of a moniker or nickname. I tend to refer to him in my HR stories as the Prince. Or Cenobite Prince. Prince of Cenobites, or Prince of Pain. Prince is Godly, and just perfect for a character such as Pinhead. Despite how he wears a mock up Priest's cassock and vestments, I actually feel that he looks more like a Prince. He is incredibly regal in his bearing, and comes across like he is royalty. Plus, it just sounds better, and more exciting, than Priest. :D I have considered giving him an actual name, but I can't seem to pick the right one. So, Prince it is and will be from now on. Only in parody/humour/satire stories do I just refer to him simply as Pinhead. Rules are slightly relaxed for those.
Asides from Hellraiser, and I do write for HR a lot because I seem to have gotten myself comfortable writing for it, I love a lot of movies, shows, cartoons, books, all kinds.
I love music too, and find certain artists and groups inspiring for my writing, and for also helping with depressive episodes. Among some of my favourite artists are; Evanescence (and Amy Lee as a solo artist), Michael Jackson, The Birthday Massacre, Three Days Grace, Breaking Benjamin, Skillet...and many miscellaneous songs from various artists and bands over the years. I even love music from eras before I was born, depending. And classical music is highly appreciated and loved by me, especially by Mozart, Chopin, Bach, and Mahler. Soundtracks from films are also my go to for inspiration, and for all-round enjoyment. John Williams' Superman theme and soundtrack for the 1978 movie is da bomb. Hans Zimmer's Man of Steel soundtrack is also amazing, and inspirational, but as Superman music I think I prefer Williams. It just screams Superman to me, and is very fitting for the altruistic hero.
As well as reading and writing, I enjoy many hobbies, including casual flower arranging and I sometimes like to sketch and draw, even if I suck. lol
