On October 17th, 2011, one of my friends was killed in a car accident. She was 14 years old. We love you Kenzie, and we always will. Stay beautiful, darling.
My name is Lauren and I'm a mature teenage girl who loves reading and writing in my spare time.
My inspiration for stories comes from many things in my life. Events that happen to me in real life, as well as from some of the communities I am a part of online.
I like creating characters that are representations of my friends. I never use their real names, but everyone I know can usually tell which character represents who. My favorite friend to write about is my best friend, who is named Lucas in A Twisted Past. I haven't written a story without him in it, because his personality is so fun and entertaining to use.
My current work, A Twisted Past, is something that I've had the idea for since 8th grade. I've only recently started putting it down on paper, and as of now I have a plan for 3 parts. A Twisted Past, A Cracked Present, and A Broken Future. I like to refer to the three "books" as the Corrupt Time Series, but I'm just a nerd (:
I'm new to sharing my stories with anyone other than my friends, so please don't be too hard on me. I love constructive criticism, because I love making my writing better.
Please feel free to message me with suggestions or comments, and take a look at my stories.
I'm trying to think of a good username for this site, and FanFiction... If you have any ideas, message me! (:
Favorite Band: Linkin Park (although I love tons of music... Too much to put on here)
Favorite Author: J.R.R. Tolkien (I'm slightly obsessed with all of his work. Okay, more than slightly.)
Favorite Book Series: (This is going to be a long list...) The Lord of the Rings trilogy, Shatter Me series, Divergent series, Matched series, The Hunger Games, Of Poseidon series, Percy Jackson and the Olympians, Heroes of Olympus, Graceling Realm, Uglies, Gone series, Maze Runner, Book of Ember, The Promise (three parts), The Hush, Hush series, Inheritance Cycle, and many more.
Favorite Books: The Hobbit, The Host, Fever 1793, Little Women, Pride and Prejudice, Wuthering Heights... (Yeah.. I'm more of a series person.)
Books to Read: Mind Games, The Selection, Firelight, Monstrous Beauty, Delirium, Starcrossed, Article 5, Across the Universe, Enclave, The Luxe (honestly, right now I'm just waiting for all the next books to the series that I'm in the middle of)
Favorite Movies: The Lord of the Rings (all three, obviously), The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey (I saw it three times in theaters, and I'm sure the next two parts will be just as amazing), Pirates of the Caribbean, Jurassic Park, The Avengers, Iron Man, etc. Anything with action and adventure! (:
Favorite Shows: Avatar: The Last Airbender, Avatar: The Legend of Korra, Law and Order: SVU, any Gordon Ramsay show!
Interests: Writing (obviously), reading, paleontology, band (of the concert and marching variety... I play alto sax), all things Middle Earth (because I'm a nerd like that), horses (even the pixellated kind... Ever heard of Howrse? Look it up!)
Music: I play guitar, electric bass, piano, saxophone, and a little bit of percussion. Our school's marching band is waaay better than our football team, and received a 91.6 at State with our show Phobias last year. This year, our show was called Reflections of New York, and it didn't do as well as Phobias, but we still received an 87.4 at State. (:
I do have a FanFiction account, although I haven't written anything on it. I use it to follow, favorite, and review all the wonderful works on there. I'm following way too many stories to keep track of, but I love it. I go through phases of what FanFics I like to read, although I'm always up for The Hobbit or The Lord of the Rings FanFiction. I'm following so many stories in that category. Otherwise, I love reading stories for Avatar (both series), Pirates of the Caribbean, and more!
