Author News: The new medication I'm on to help with my depression and concentration have...well, very peculiar side effects. I feel woozy, headachey, and I often feel like I want to hurl. :( It sucks. I've been told that these side effects are completely temporary as I grow accustomed to the meds. Soon as they settle, I'll start to feel more better in myself. And, I should expect, more able to focus on my work and concentrate. Unfortunately, this could take a couple of weeks. In the meantime, I need to rest up and give myself a chance for my body to become used to what I'm taking. Thanks for the patience. I have however been making those story covers from GIMP, and having fun in the meanwhile. I've made quite a few already. ;D Hope they meet everyone's expectations. They're not overly perfect, but they'll do for now, till I become more used to the program. :) Watch this space for more news.
- Laura, 9/3/14
I'm Laura-Jane, an avid writer who hopes to one day fulfill that life time dream of becoming an officially published novelist. For now, I write fanfictions - combining my love of both writing and movies/TV.
I'm a professional Florist, hoping soon to start up my own business in the flower trade. Publishing my own novel and/or book would be the icing on the cake. :)
I'm a big fan of Super-Heroes, romance, and Horror films. I enjoy writing for Hellraiser the most; particularly the pairing of Kirsty and Pinhead, a couple I've since invented the name Pinsty for.
I enjoy films and TV shows such as Hellraiser, Superman, Avengers Assemble, Star Trek: The Next Generation, Smallville, Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman, The Simpsons, Friends, A Nightmare on Elm St, Child's Play, and so much more.
I love to listen to varied types of music. My favourite bands consists of Evanescence, The Birthday Massacre, Three Days Grace, Skillet, Breaking Benjamin, and so much more. I seem to like rock most of all. Evanescence are my ultimate muse with my writing, especially where it concerns Hellraiser and Pinsty. :)
I write romances including Pinsty, but I am going in a more darker direction with Hellraiser, so I shouldn't worry about fluffy stories with unicorns and rainbows and a marshmallow Pinhead. Well, I am a bit of a softy where it concerns a good romance, so maybe he'll be a little more human in some stories I write. What can I say? I hate writing an antagonistic Pinhead. XD Who decided that it is completely out of character for Pinhead to show human emotions and to fall in love or whatever? No one except the righteous literary snobs you get here. There was a lot of unexplored potential with Pinhead. The way I see it, he can fall in love. This IS fanfiction. As long as he's not acting outrageous and is in some character don't let anyone bully you into thinking it's OOC to have Pinhead acting a certain way in a romance story. I admit, there's a lot of badly written Pinhead romances around, but if written well a Pinhead romance can be a great read. Who says that he has to be a bad boy all the time? I like seeing a more half-good guy Pinhead. :3
I love to write drabbles, challenges/prompts, Character Studies, AUs, What Ifs, and One Shots the most.
I never seem to be happy or satisfied with the stories I write. I've actually been praised for my dedication to my work for the way I never seem to stop working on them, so I guess it's a good thing that I go back to them. :) Sometimes, even though it's something I never like to do, I will permanently scrap a story project, but only if I feel it's not working and never going to work. It's always a last resort.
I always try to ensure that my work is practically free of grammatical/punctuation/spelling errors. My writing style can be expressive as possible without being too in your face. If there's one thing I hate it's to bore people. I want to make sure that people don't get lost in too much text. But I still hate to write too simply. I like to really describe every last part of the imagery in my work. I love to get across feelings and emotions in my written work. But I'm still pretty much un-confident in myself as a writer.
I've been told by several people here that I have a talent for striking a good balance between 'sweet' and 'dark'. I can't possibly comment. You'll have to decide that for yourselves.
I'm more of a one shot kind of person. I much prefer to write stories that are short and sweet. I will delve into the novel-length writing foray though, which is fun but it has often ended in tears because of my concentration. But I have been known to finish longer stories one way or another - even if it takes a couple of tries. I'm nothing if committed if I'm took in by a project.
I like to experiment with fandoms and characters, particularly in crossovers. Expect a lot of seemingly wacky ideas coming along soon. Though they may seem wacky, I've worked damn hard to ensure that the stories work and are believable. Don't like what you see? Then fine, do not read. No one is making you.
I cannot abide being harassed with questions about when there'll be updates. Some people here just don't seem to get that a story takes time to grow and come to fruition, and cannot be written in five seconds flat. That is not true writing. They also don't seem to understand that there's a little thing called 'writer's block', and sometimes the words won't come, no matter how much we want to write. I get that there's a lot of unfinished stories cluttering up this site, and a lot of dead fics, which can be annoying. But not everyone's stories here are dead, or forgotten. Have you ever thought that perhaps the author has a life, and is busy but will come back to the story eventually? I'm the same at the moment. I can tell you, my fics certainly aren't dead. Yes, there's a lot of unfinished stories from me but they're always being worked on. I'm always working quietly in the background, reading other people's fics to get inspired. I've not abandoned my fics. I'm constantly fleshing and improving plots so that they're interesting. But unfortunately I do tend to suffer with writer's block a great deal. My stories WILL be completed eventually. But till then, if you feel the need to harass and question me about when I'll be updating...don't bother. It'll rattle me.
I also can't stand being told what to do with my stories. Constructive criticism about the grammar yes, in a polite way, I don't mind that at all. But people telling me how to write my story, telling me what to add, thrusting their own preferences and ideas on me? I hate that. I don't mind a little help hand, and considering some ideas, but that's it. I usually figure out my plot hiccups on my own, or with friends. Don't get me wrong; I do like to hear from fans and readers, and if they have ideas I'm open and willing to hear them. Always. But when people start telling me how to write a story or if they start thrusting things on me, I really don't like it and I get really annoyed.
Well, nothing else much to say about me except that I enjoy writing, and reading. I also suffer with Severe Depression. It's a little like Bipolar, but I never have highs, just permanent lows that strike me down out of nowhere. I've suffered with this illness since I was a teenager. I've been especially having a hard time recently. This interferes with my writing. I ask that you be patient with me. I'm also suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder; it's not a subject matter I like to divulge at all, but as it's affecting my concentration, judgement and thought and of course my writing, then any updating on here is quite slow. It doesn't mean I'm not writing or have given up. I'm still around and still plotting my stories with vigor, despite my illnesses.
If you like what I've written here, then please check out my shared account, Thaura. It is shared between myself and my boyfriend. Story ideas are listed. :)
I'm a friendly person so if you want to talk to me, go ahead. Just send me a PM here. I also accept notes through my dA account, though some people I know here have my personal email. Want my email address? Treat me right and we'll see. ;)
Enjoy! And please leave comments and reviews to let me know how I've done. We don't ask for them, but they're always greatly appreciated. How am I supposed to know how I've done or if you've enjoyed or disliked my work if you don't tell me?
Well I couldn't not include my all time favourite ships on my profile, could I now? XD Here are the top pairings that I adore and cherish, and you're most likely to see me write about in my stories;
1 - Pinhead/Kirsty (Pinsty; Hellraiser)
2 - Joey/Elliot (Jelly; Hellraiser III)
3 - Lois/Superman/Clark (Clois; Superman/Man of Steel/Smallville)
4 - Data/Deanna (Datroi; Star Trek: The Next Generation)
5 - Jafar/Jasmine (Jafmine; Disney Aladdin)
6 - Pinhead/Dreamer (PinDream; Hellraiser III)
7 - Pinhead/Joey (Jinny; it's scoffed at, but it's actually canon. Or at least could have been. ;) Hellraiser III)
8 - Pinhead/Nikoletta (Pinoletta; Hellraiser I & II)
9 - Pinhead/Angelique (Pingilique; Hellraiser IV)
10 - Bruce/Betty (Incredible Hulk 2008 Movie)
I've wrote quite a few stories in my time on this site, and not all of them I can honestly say have gone as well as I would have wanted. My concentration difficulties, as stated, usually interferes with my creativity and writing flow. Especially where it concerns my novel-length fics. I have no intention of deleting anything right now, even though in the past I have scrapped stories. It's only because depression can make me believe that I'm doing a rubbish job at my writing and I start to doubt myself. But no worries; I intend to work damn hard on all my current works this coming year, and get them finished. No matter how long it takes.
(Check 'My Stories' to see my full list of complete fics. The list is too great. Most are one shots. I have one novel-length story that is completed.)

Future Ideas Still Forming
A Chance in Hell (Hellraiser & Final Destination X-Over; Novel-length)
Ok, now this kinda came from out of nowhere, but I really want to sit down and work on the plot before I release the details. I love the Final Destination series, but how to incorporate that universe into that of Hellraiser's? Why, very simply indeed! It should be a very interesting story, and something I hope fans will just love.
Exploring Eternity (Hellraiser; Novel-length)
Right, now this is a story I was vigorously working on a couple of years ago but deleted last year. It was an AU take on both HR2 and 6, and depicted a virginal Kirsty. She ends up losing her virginity to Pinhead after bonding with him and helping him come to terms with his humanity. The story fell flat, it didn't seem to ring true at all. Kirsty...a virgin? Come on! Also, I didn't like how sappy it turned out, however I did enjoy writing the bonding scenes between Kirsty and Pinhead. After all, Pinhead finds himself to be vulnerable at that moment when he learns of his humanity, and he begins to act more human too. So I'll be going from those observations from a different angle in the second attempt at writing the story. Plus, I really didn't want to miss out of using the title Exploring Eternity, so at the moment my mind is mulling through different scenarios. And I'll definitely be making darker. The ideas that are forming are great, and should really fit this time, and ring true. Hopefully, this story should come soon.
Progress Report; Posted Stories
-- A Match Made in Hell
Still working on the third chapter whenever I can. Not sure when there'll be an update but it should come soon enough.
-- My Immortal
THIS IS NOT A DEAD FIC, despite there being no new chapter for nearly three years. XD Good news though - I KNOW WHERE I'M GOING NOW!! And I know what to do with Pinhead too! :D :D :D I've been fleshing up the plot in my notes in my spare time whilst I've been recuperating, and it should definitely work out if things go well. The ending will be an interesting one indeed. All I'll say is that I was inspired by the first considered ending for HR3. XD I hope to restart writing soon on the next few chapters. Though it's easier said than done of course. And also, the only other problem is the TV reporting business and how it all works. I'm not too sure on that, and research has often fallen flat. But don't worry, I'll get it sorted. Thanks to everyone who has followed so far and have remained loyal and been patient for updates in the three years it's been uploaded. I truly appreciate it. Your loyalty will be definitely rewarded soon. :)
-- Hell High
Not quite sure where to go with this. I have a million and one ideas for it, but not quite sure where to start. However, I've been recently thinking about this story a lot and I've decided that I will not put up for adoption at all, and I'll probably have a new chapter written in the near future. Not yet, though. I still need to plan and write. But I have been thinking about what the next chapter will be about apart from the roll calling, and it's been exciting to come up with it. :) Wish me luck. And keep your eyes peeled for new chapters. :D
-- The Monsters' Club
Chapters 73 and 74 now finished. Chapter 75 is currently still under write up now, with Rurrlock still working on his parts of the chapter. Soon as it's finished I'll be uploading, then going on hiatus.
-- The Monsters' Club: Holiday Special
As with the main fic, it's a joint effort along with my boyfriend. The Christmas, New Year and Valentine's Day specials are all posted. Next up will a couple of smaller insignificant if fun holiday specials. Well, hopefully. The Pancake Day special is already written and uploaded. Next will be the Lent/Ash Wednesday, which I'll be taking my sweet time with because Lent lasts for six weeks. (Those who don't know what Lent is, it's where someone has to give up something, like a vice, or take up something they wouldn't normally do, for six whole weeks XD Imagine the TMC gang going through this?? LOL) However, I want to try and get the Lent special out of the way before April Fools. I'll be writing the Lent one, if I can. We'll see. :) There'll still hopefully be specials for April Fools, Mother's Day, Easter, Father's Day, and another couple more Halloweens and Christmases. :D
-- The Monsters' Club: What We NEVER Saw
Updated with new chapter. Still got loads of other ideas in the pipeline that should be coming up this year. This spin off fic is different to the other two, because I created it to focus more on the other characters and scenes that we never see much of. I know that I probably focus on Pinhead a lot, and his sexy dynamics with Kirsty, which is how it's meant to be because it's his story arc; he's the main guy and everyone else are supporting characters. But I really do want to write more for the others that we don't always see or focus on - like Pennywise and Djinn. It's going to be fun. Of course, I'm always up for requests and ideas to go with. If anyone has any suggestions, please get in touch. I'll see what I can do. :)
-- The Hellraiser Drabbles
Been watching the movies whenever I can to try and get ideas. I have quite a few. But we'll see if I can put into words what I want to write.
-- Hellish Love
I've grown weary of writing drabbles for these, which is completely temporary not to worry. I feel that I need a break from it, since every time I try to write a drabble based on the word nothing seems to come, and it just feels like I'm writing the same thing over and over. I want each drabble to be fresh and new. :( I will have a little break from this, and then I'll be back on it. I'm nearly finished with this fic. :)
-- Symphony of Pain
Same again as with 'Hellish Love'. Nothing seems to be coming, but I want to try and knuckle down soon and get it finished. My MP3 Player is full of songs waiting to inspire me. But that's only if I'm up for it. I've run out of steam with drabbles.
-- The Chucky Drabbles
Now this is new. I wrote a one shot focusing on a scene from 'Seed of Chucky' a while back, but now I've since decided that I should turn that into one of many short stories focusing on the Chucky movies. I've been inspired since seeing the latest Chucky movie - 'Curse of Chucky'. There should be some drabbles and short stories focusing on the pint sized terror coming your way soon. ;)
I love Superman, actually more than I do Hellraiser, but I find it so hard to write for. I guess it's because I love the fandom so much I'm worried about screwing up. XD No matter. The good news is that along with my other drabble fics I intend to finish this once and for all to make more room for my novel-length stories, so there should be some updates soon. I've noticed this doesn't get as much hits as my other stories but perhaps that'll change once I update.
Progress Report; Yet to Be Posted Stories
Here's the four novel-length stories that I believe may be coming your way this year and next;
-- Hellraiser: Raising Hell
Ok, I've decided that I'll be merging both the new ideas AND the original story ideas in with the upcoming story that will soon be posted. So there won't be two different versions of the same story uploaded on this site. Just one. And it's got a new title - 'Hellraiser: Raising Hell'. It'll have the charm of the original fic, and all the hopeful epicness of the reimagined version. I hope you will all like it. It should be posted in the near future, soon as I've begun to recover from my illness and I can concentrate on reworking and twisting the already established chapters. I also have decided, since this was obviously going to be followed on by a sequel of course - and so was the original version a few years ago - that I'll be making this fic super long as the sequel ideas will be included. So it'll be like a several part story. Kinda like Clive Barker style. XD Wish me luck. Should be fun.
-- Hell's Hulk
This is a tricky storyline, and a tricky crossing between Hellraiser and Incredible Hulk...and very tricky premise. But I'm hoping that this shall be released for this year. The plot is thoroughly thought up from beginning to end, but the trouble is getting it into words. I'm also worried about its reception; will people take to it? It's very strange. So that's holding me back a little. But otherwise, I am very up for writing it still and I'm hopeful to have it written for Summer at least.
-- Body & Soul: An Alternative Hellraiser III
Ah now this I've been dying to do for a year or so. It's a very early premise story of mine that I written in 2010, but I want to re-post with a different twist. It has the same premise but I'm going at it with a different edge. I co-written it with another writer whose ideas and notions I didn't particularly like, but since now I'm working on my own with it...well, I can do as I wish. So yes, I'm hoping for a Christmas release with this. Or even earlier if you're lucky.
-- Hell on Elm Street
This is the big and exciting crossover I've been meaning to do for ages but never found the time to do. It's been tricky to get the timelines right and get all my facts straight about Hellraiser and A Nightmare on Elm Street to make them work in unison. But I'm hopeful that if I can work it all out, it will have a release this year. ;)
Please enjoy! Let me know what you think of my work, by all means. I don't mind constructive criticism either, but don't be nasty about it. If you have a query or question, or just want to discuss one of my stories, get in touch.
Regards, and happy reading.
The writers who succeed, ultimately, are those who can bear the criticism and critique, who can accept it, grow and improve...and keep writing.
