Bio:

Hi,

I'm Lauren.  I currently in my final year of vet school and I have like NO free time and yet I still love to write and try to do it when I can because it's just really fun.  I hope you enjoy my stuff. 

 

Author of the month interview:

  1. What is your favorite Gilmore Girls episode and why?

 

So you go straight to the tough questions, huh?  I guess if I had to choose I’d say my favorite episode is “Partings."  I know a lot of people hated it for what happened with the whole Lorelai/Luke/Chris thing but I actually thought it was a really natural thing for Lorelai to do.  It was really heartbreaking but really true to their characters.  Lorelai had to stop hiding what she was feeling from Luke and in the end, she ran to Chris because it’s what she’s always done when things get tough in her love life.  Plus, of course, there was all the Rory and Logan goodness.  I laughed, I cried, I laughed at the fact that a TV show could make me cry so hard.  Logan and Rory have both grown up a lot since they got together and it was impressive to see them both react to such a painful experience in such a grown up way.  When Logan told Rory to ask him to stay and she said she couldn’t—I think that was a huge step for her; she was actually putting someone else’s need before her own—not something she’s generally been great at in the past.  Overall, I just think it was such a poignant episode that really showed what the characters are all about.

 

If I had to choose my favorite non-Rogan episode, I would say it’s “The Big One.”  Who doesn’t love a good virgin outing on national television?

 

  1. When did you become interested in writing Rory and Logan fan fiction?

 

Hmm, well I first became interested in writing fan fiction back in my Buffy obsessed days.  After Buffy went off the air I kind of lost interest.  Then one day I was looking up something about Gilmore Girls, I can’t remember what, and I came across a Rogan fan fic and it just kind of renewed my interest.  I started reading a few and then not too long after I decided to take a stab at writing one and thus was born Skip a Beat.

 

  1. How did you discover the world of fan fiction?  Is this your first time writing it?

 

Hmm, well I sort of mentioned that above but I guess I’ll go into a bit more detail here.  I believe it was the fourth season of Buffy and I was looking for some spoilers when I came across a site The Buffy Cross and Stake.  It was a spoiler board and people there posted a lot of fan fiction as well as other stuff like wallpapers and whatnot.  So, along with satisfying my spoiler cravings, it opened up a whole new interest area for me.

 

  1. What is your preferred time of day to write?

 

It’s difficult for me to pinpoint a preferred time because as a vet student I have a very erratic schedule.  It’s pretty much whenever I have time.  Usually, I’d say I like to write in the afternoons right after I get home from school…when I get home from school at a reasonable hour that is, which is becoming more and more of a rarity unfortunately.  But again, mostly it’s just whenever I have the time.

 

  1. Where did you get the inspiration for your stories?

 

Everywhere.  Sometimes it’s a song, sometimes it’s another fanfic, and sometimes it’s just a quote that turns into a conversation that turns into a story.  It’s hard to pinpoint just one place that my ideas come from.

 

  1. Are you ever tempted to change your future chapters because of suggestions or ideas in the feedback you get?  

 

No.  I pretty much know where my story is going when I start writing it and it’s set in stone.  I will add minor things here and there as filler chapters, based on suggestions like, “will you bring Honor back?” or if a few people mention wanting to see a reaction or something that I hadn’t considered adding, but I never change my plot.  I often get a lot of pressure in my reviews to rush things and I guess you could technically say I feel “tempted” but I never seriously consider changing it.  I know sometimes people get frustrated because I tend to drag things out, but in the end, I think my stories benefit from me knowing exactly what I want them to be.

 

  1. For many of us fan fiction is a guilty pleasure.  How many people in your everyday life know you write/read fan fiction?

 

To be perfectly honest, hardly any.  I think my family knows, but that’s about it.  I think my old roommates thought I did a lot more studying than I actually did.  I think I partially feel guilty for writing when I should be studying and I don’t like my friends at school to know because they’ll think I’m a slacker or something.

 

  1. If you could be anywhere you wanted, and do anything you wanted, where would you be and what would you be doing?

 

I’d be a couple of years in the future, actually a vet and not just a vet student with crappy hours and no pay.  I’m basically at that stage now where I work in the hospital at school only I have 12+ hour days, minimal respect, and I pay them tens of thousands of dollars instead of getting a salary.  If I could, I’d fast forward a bit and I’d be working in New York City with a fabulous apartment I can’t afford and a little bit of freedom with my time.
