Author has written 34 stories for Movie X-overs, Hellraiser, StarTrek: The Next Generation, Smallville, Umbrage, Incredible Hulk, A Nightmare on Elm Street, Superman, and Child's Play.
The name's Laura, and I enjoy writing. I come here to not only post my own stories, but to enjoy the work of others.
I've been a member of, and writing for, this site under this account since 2010, and I've enjoyed every pain-staking minute, even if sometimes I've felt like hurling my laptop against the wall in utter frustration. LOL Though I'll admit sometimes I've felt like giving up, especially when I've not done so well in my writing efforts, or if an idea doesn't work, or I've come into conflict with other members (it's rare, but I've had bust-ups with a few over the years).
I've had five glorious years as a member and writer here, but soon will be the time for moving on to pastures new with a brand new writing account.
You may be wondering what I intend to do with the stories I have in progress still. Well, it's simple really. I will be coming back whenever I can to update those particular fics. I'm nearly done with one of them, so I'll have one ticked off my list. I don't have a tremendous amount of in progress fics. I've seen other writers with a sh*tload of in progress fics that haven't been updated in ages, trust me on that. Compared to them, I have very little to do.
What I will be doing before I move on is writing small ficlets/flash fiction stories. I intend to get my story list up to an even number of 100 fics to my penname. I announced this months ago. It would have been done by now if I had more time and the focus for it. But I'm making some headway with it right now. I have quite a few new ideas forming as I speak, to go along with the ideas I came up with months ago. And they won't be just for Hellraiser. I hope to do some stories for fandoms that I love, grew up with, and have enjoyed in the past. I even hope to push the boundaries and write some genres I never really do, such as action and adventure. I wanted to test myself in that aspect. But more or less, all the big epic stuff will come through my new account, along with longer stories.
As you will know, I'm a romance and angst writer. I also turn my writing talents to drama and horror as well. I will still be carrying on this tradition through my new alias.

Like I said, it's been a blast. I have gotten to interact with some great people, and have made friends. I've even met my true love through here. I'll always be thankful for this wonderful site. Though, it hasn't always been plain sailing. I've had a lot of users here hurt me, and the ultimate let down for me has been the fanfictioners who I've made friends with and then after a while them getting bored of me and just simply ignoring me some time afterwards. If there's one thing I hate, it's betrayal, and fickleness. You wanna be my friend? Great. But you have to remember behind this screen is a human being, a particularly sensitive human being, who hurts very easily when betrayed. I take friendship seriously. I like to be true and loyal. I like having a laugh and not take myself seriously as the next person, but come on. If you feel you can no longer stick to a friendship on here, have the guts and balls to admit that and don't plain flat out ignore them. That's just incredibly cruel. And kind of cowardly. Sure, if that friend is being a bit too overwhelming or just too obsessive, then yeah. I can understand that. I hope I never came across to these back stabbers as obsessive or overwhelming. I am not trying to be. I just find it so hard to make friends that whenever I do I enjoy it and just want to be invested. It's not a bad thing. I do feel, however, I just got too boring for some of these people. I know people have lives, and other commitments, so sometimes they'll be absent and it's not really personal. But does it really hurt to email your friend every once in a while? But yeah, this whole thing concerning so called friends on here is partially the reason why I turned off my PM features, as well as the fact last year I kept getting idiots messaging me. I'm not trying to be rude. Just cautious. I am still willing to make friends, and take risks it would seem. But forgive me if I seem a little distant. I'm just trying to save myself of any potential hurt.
Want to be friends? Then visit my Facebook page here:
I don't really accept friend requests, due to some bad experience with some weirdos. But please feel free to message me, let me know who you are and why you should be my friend on FB. I would honestly be delighted to have more fanfiction and Hellraiser orientated friends there. :)
Speaking of FB, I have several of my own fan/community pages that I have created. I would be grateful for more Likes and visits to these pages, so please click the links below and hit Like. And don't forget to share. Thank you.
Most importantly, I have a writing homepage. Two actually. One is an original writing homepage. At the moment, it is merely a community for writers. I tend to be posting stuff like memes and quote posters concerning writing. Very encouraging ones. But I don't tend to post stuff about my own writing. I don't feel I do enough to warrant a page about it. I do believe, when I do get fully into my own writing, I will set up an official author page to promote my work and post related news. For now, enjoy what I post now. I still need support and a loyal following before I can get anywhere in this writing world. Thank you.

Happy 5th Birthday to The Monsters' Club! Uploaded to Fanfiction Net on 6th April 2010
Wanted to make that special announcement, since five years ago today I posted my longest running story to date, and my first crossover. I had no idea how long it was going to run, or where I was going with the plot. But it was down to the fans that the story is still running today. Not just my lack of concentration keeping me from finishing it. LOL I seemed to have unintentionally created this 'Verse which works on so many completely off the wall levels. And I love it! To read TMC, look through my story list below. You will find the original fic, and the holiday special fic. Enjoy. - 6th April 2015
Ok, before we wrap up, there are several things that annoy me in this fanfiction world, and one in particular seems to really get my goat. I wanted to get it off my chest, and also ensure that these perpetrators see this. What is it that makes users here decide to follow a COMPLETED story??? Seriously, do some of you not comprehend the meaning of 'one shot'? It means it's a one-off, a short story with only one chapter. Following it is kind of redundant. I make it obviously clear which of my stories are completed one shots, and which are in progress. Yet I STILL keep getting emails telling me people are subscribing to my finished stories. Makes me want to bang my head against the wall in frustration. If these are newbie members, then it's understandable. But it's very clear what the Follow part actually means. I am flattered and honoured you enjoy my stories so much you want to follow them. Don't get me wrong. I just find it so annoying when they can simply just subscribe to ME instead. If they are genuinely unsure of what stories are complete and which are not, then they can follow me as a writer. That way, you'll get all kinds of updates from me.
Hope this clears things up a little.
Also, another thing that gets my blood boiling to volcanic proportions, and I'll make this brief, are people who leave reviews to your stories that aren't even really reviews to begin with. But ramblings that have nothing to do with the chapter/story, and what they thought of it. This either includes questions, requests to do something (I don't mind these so much, only if you told me what you thought of the story/chapter over-all first before asking or requesting), or just odd little personal ramblings that have no relation or significance to the actual story. I remember reading some Avengers story and one reviewer there just ranting on about when they saw a Spider-Man movie. O_o Oh and this biggie, this is the kingDaddy of ALL dumbass reviews...'More Please'. I feel like punching a wall when I see that one. More of WHAT exactly? Oh, and 'OMG U R AWESUM!!11111' Seriously? Come on, you guys. Can we please both stick to the topic, go more in detail about what you enjoyed and what you didn't, take a bit more time to say what you did enjoy that made you say 'More Please', and please for the love of God PLEASE brush up on your grammar and spelling when you feel compelled to write 'OMG U R AWESUM'.
Rant over. I will be listing several pet hates concerning fanfiction, I believe on my new account profile. ;)
Thanks again to all my readers and subscribers (even those who keep following the completed stories -_-). Look forward to more from me, and hope to hear from you soon.
