4/11/2015: Wow, it's been almost a year since I've updated this! I know I've been MIA but it's been a crazy year. I've done some traveling, been busting my ass in grad school, got a new job that has me working less hours than retail but is twice as demanding, had some family issues, you name it, it probably happened! But while I've been working slowly on my own original fiction I have been trying to stick to my fanfic roots, since without the experience here, I wouldn't be half the writer I am today. Unfortunately, my writing times are few and far between and the ones I do have I spend on my original fictions. However, I did just post a new story, my first non-Harry Potter story ever! It's crazy for me, but I enjoyed writing it, as sort of a way to dip my toe into the Lake of Other Fandoms. The chosen fandom is Arrow, the ship Olicity, and I have latched onto that like you wouldn't believe. If you haven't seen the show, you definitely should! The first two seasons are on Netflix and it will consume you. I almost wish I hadn't gotten into the show until it was already all over, like 10 seasons long, so I could binge watch it all. Now I'm stuck waiting each week for the new episode, and I don't even want to think about what I'm going to do in a month or so when there are NO new episodes. Probably just start the series over again.
8/10/14: Hey guys! So I am working on the last chapter of SOV and I have also recently posted a Rose/Scorpius oneshot titled Diagon Alley. School will be starting soon-ish again for me, so my posting of new stories will probably have to wait awhile unfortunately. I have two that have been coming along swimmingly - All Kinds of Backwards and Avoiding A War - and then the others in the poll have been coming along more slowly. The muse is a fickle thing. Anyway, I hope everyone is having a wonderful summer and I will do my best to keep posting! Much love!
4/2/14: I feel awful I promised better updating skills and I was wrong. The lighter courseload I thought I would have this semester turned out to be a LIE. But I have been writing again, so I'm hoping that at some point in May I'll be able to just finish SOV altogether. Everyone has been waiting for the newest chapter for forever, so I don't want to make anyone wait any longer.
1/11/14: I'm horrible, yes I know. I suck at updating. It's something I always say I will do better on with the next story but it never happens. I am working on the next SOV chapters now though, along with chapters of all my other fanfics that are in the poll. They are coming along to varying degrees - some of them have 6 chapters already and some only have half of the first one. Depending on the progress each one has made by the time SOV is FINALLY completed, that may determine the order they are uploaded in, rather than the poll. I hate to do that, because everyone has been so wonderful in voting, but the two stories that currently have the highest amount of votes are OF COURSE the ones that just will not flow and have only about two chapters each, whereas some of the lesser voted ones have multiple chapters that I'm so excited about. But there are still at least 5 more chapters of SOV to be written (so it should be finished in 5 more years...I kid, I kid), so that could very well change. I'll post on here for sure what will be uploaded next when I know for sure, probably around the time the last two chapters of SOV are being posted.
But here is the updated list of descriptions for the stories in the poll:
6/22/12: Here is the link for Lizzie's engagement ring from TWYT, if you want to see it. I know my in-story description didn't do it justice :)
The link I had no longer works, and I have yet to find another that does. If you really want to see it, Google Images Search "Robin Scorpio Engagement Ring" and it should pull up at least one image of it, hopefully lol
So, here's how it works:
A little bit about me...
My name is Lauren, and I am a graduate student in History. A month after my 21st birthday I received my Bachelor's. I'm a bit of an academic overachiever :)
I have a wonderful boyfriend of two and a half years. I love to read, and currently own over 300 books. Since I live in a small apartment, this is not the best but I can't bear to part with any of them. I have tried various times to write a book, starting from when I was about 11 or 12, but obviously back then I had no concept of character development or anything like that. Now, with 31 fanfictions under my belt, I have a slightly better grasp on what it takes to make a story work and now just have to push myself to complete one and do something with it.
I love the New York Giants, an American football team. I'm not really into other sports and am just a huge football fan.
I love to crochet and knit, as well as bake. So I am a little old lady, at the ripe old age of 23.
Harry Potter is obviously my favorite fanfiction world, as that's where nearly all of my stories are set. I used to be an avid reader and writer of Lily and James, Ron and Hermione, and Harry and Ginny, but then turned more to NextGen fics. I also love Oliver and Katie stories, and believe that there are not nearly enough stories about them. I have also read fanfics from various other worlds (Thor, Arrow, Snow White and the Huntsman) and recently started writing Arrow fanfics. Words cannot describe how much I love Oliver/Felicity (aka Olicity). *sigh*
Pretty much all the usual ones :)
Pairings I don't understand:
What can I say? I like the way the things were in the books - to me, James and Sirius were like brothers, moreso than Remus/Sirius, and Harry and Hermione were like siblings, as were Ginny and Hermione. And as for Sirius/Hermione - it's just creepy to me, because he seems like thirty years older than her, even though it's really not that many...but I respect that other people have their own ideas and ways they wish things had turned out and so, while I won't write any of those pairs (or really read them either), I won't flat-out say "NO YOU ARE WRONG!!" To each his own, really. :)
I have also gotten into the Divergent trilogy lately. I loved the movie and the books. The ending of Allegiant...ughhhhh. Anyways, I'm contemplating writing a Divergent fanfic - FourTris, obviously - at some point. We shall see how that plays out :)
