10/7/13: Oh my god. Have you ever looked back at something you wrote on the internet years ago, and just thought... what was WRONG with me? Because that is what describes this profile. I cannot believe this exists. I was definitely an idiot. Not that I'll update anything... That is all.


Last Updated 3/30/08

Real name: Laura

Age: 18

Gender: Female

Location: Northeastern US

Music: BEATLES! Had to put that in... If I ever write any songfics, it'll probably be with one of their songs.

Random Facts About Me: Hmmm... well, my favorite flowers are Sunflowers, (I have a small patch on the side of the house, along with several other flowers) green is my favorite color,(why does no one ever like green?) and I LOVE to read. Most of my friends kinda don't, so they think I'm crazy but that's okay. I love to read fantasy books, and absolutely hate having nothing to read. At the moment what I'm most hooked on is The Vampire Chronicles (more about that below). I play the flute, love to draw and paint and am surprisingly good at math. It drives me crazy when I go to read a story and find that it must have been written by someone who only recently learned how to read and write, has no idea what a spell-check is and learned English as a second language. That must be the case, because otherwise they'd be total idiots. I notice everything, and will comment on it if I see it more than once. Don't be offended if I make/made one of these comments; I can't help it, and it's usually no big deal. I've just started to get back into fanfiction, and am having some trouble finding decent stories that I like. What I'm reading most are stories about The Vampire Chronicles, and I have to look elsewhere for those, as this site doesn't support them. I also found a wonderful private site with Smallville stories centered around Clark and Chloe-- and no offense meant to anyone, but they're way better than anything I've found here. Anyway, enjoy the rest of my profile, if you read it!


I don't know if anyone's actually interested in this, but for some reason I feel the urge to put it anyway, so here it is. Please don't kill me for saying this, but I've figured out that, a lot of times, the best place to find good fanfiction is . . . not here. I'm not talking about any stories in particular, but, often, this just seems to be quantity over quality. I guess I'm tired of looking through hundreds of pages of 200 word netspeak nothing stories written by ten year olds that all seem to say the same things, if you can mentally edit enough to understand them, just trying to find that one gem hidden somewhere in their midst. I've found that gem a couple of times before, but honestly, it's just too hard.

So, I now have a series of smaller sites/authors that I read. Each focuses on a specific genre of fanfiction, and generally has high quality, original stories. Here's my current list, if anyone cares:

The Vampire Chronicles Fanfiction
The Vampire Armand

Harry Potter Harry/Hermione Fanfiction
Hermione's World

Quote of the Moment:

"Can you believe our luck?" asked Ron miserably, bending down to pick up Scabbers. "Of all the trees we could've hit, we had to get one that hits back." Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets


Rest In Peace Robert Jordan. We all miss you and your amazing stories.

I'm sorry to anyone who was reading my story, Lyss's Turn, but it is now officially on hiatus. I may or may not return to writing it at some point in the future. I have only recently started reading fanfiction again, and while I may write something, I don't think I will be continuing that story any time soon. I'm very sorry to anyone upset by this.


My Obsessions: these are the things that I love, and read/watch over and over again, practically know by heart and am most likely to read/write fanfiction on. It takes a lot for things to make this list, which is why it's so much shorter than the favorites. These are the favorites of the favorites. I love these, I need them, I dream them, I am them. Not to get obsessive or anything. Anything like this is considered an obsession.

My absolute favorite fanfiction is and always will be the Harry/Hermione saga by Mena Baines (penname) on her site, Hermione's World. It was one of the first Harry Potter fanfics ever written, and it will always be the best. I think I can rightfully blame my sadly dashed but strong hopes for the series to go Harry/Hermione on these stories, as well as my trouble with finding any other HP fanfiction I can enjoy-- compared with this, the rest seems rather sad. Feel blessed if I have noticed a HP story by you. Here's a link, if anyone's interested...

These are just some of my favorites from various thing that I read/watch. Hope you enjoy them.
