I have finally decided to give the Lauren girls their own thread. Their adventures began on the Short Fic Weekly Challenge thread (I wasn’t even sure I would post another after that first one because I was so nervous about it), but their story has grown more than I can realistically keep posting there. I will be cross posting their adventures from the SFC thread here as they fit in the timeline and will make a note when I do. They will still have adventures there as well, but it will keep more to the weekly prompts. Thank you to all of you who have been so kind and supportive with your comments in the SFC thread. That is why I was able to gather the courage to start this thread.

Please keep in mind that I am by no means a writer. I taught math for 5 years before having children so I am good with numbers, bad with words!! In fact, I dreaded writing papers in high school and college, choosing to wait until the last minute! While I feel that my writing ability has improved some, I am sure that there are English teachers out there that will cringe when reading my work. If you have any suggestions for improvement, I would love to hear them. However, please be kind and constructive about it. If you like the Lauren girls’ adventures please let me know! It is always good to hear if someone likes what you are writing about.

Many of the comments I have received on the SFC thread mentioned the family aspect that is in my stories. Family has always been extremely important to me and I know from personal experience that the bonds of family can cover great distances. The Lauren family is a very close knit family and that will show through in a lot of my stories. I tend to be better at writing happy stuff, so there will be a bit of humor, romance, and general fun. It won’t all be like that though, there will be some harsh times. I have done some research and will do my best to keep with lore and such, but there are times that I may incorporate things from everyday reality into my stories (I mean, come on, there HAS to be an equivalent to Victoria’s Secret in the Star Wars galaxy, not to mention things like chocolate and French fries!).

Belladonya and Mallayse will be the main characters in this tale, but Allissya and Roslynd will have a larger part as time progresses (and I have time to go through the JC/JK stories in game since it has been a while). I will include screenshots of what all 4 girls look like during their class stories. If I had any artistic ability, I would include pictures of them in their younger years. Alas, the best I can draw would be stick people and I am not even very good at that!

Here are the Screenshots: Bella, Mallay, Lissa, and Ros



I will attempt to be organized and keep up an outline here:

Part 1: The Lauren Legacy

This first part all occurs before the class stories begin. I want to give you a better picture of the family dynamic and introduce characters that will be a part of and impact the Lauren family's lives.

This first entry is a big one, copied directly from the SFC thread. The only thing I changed really was the title, and edited any typos that I found. I kept the spoiler tags because of the length and parts do have violence, which I have put warnings on.

This 5 part series tells of an event that shaped the Lauren girls into the people they are today. I split it into 5 parts, each with a different prompt, hopefully making it easier to read. There are some parts with violence and gore and I will put warnings on those. I hope you enjoy it.

These events occur approximately 8 1/2 years before Bella and Mallay begin their class stories.

Spoilers: A minor reference to a mission on Hutta, but no others that I can think of

This is a short, kinda silly installment, but it was fun to write! There are no spoilers since the girls have yet to begin their class stories. I will use the spoiler tags to save space since it has become habit. I hope you enjoy!

No More Hiding Myself!

Here is a much longer installment that occurs the same day as Bella and Mallay's shopping escapade. Again, no class spoilers. I promise, I will get to the class stories soon!

This next installment takes place roughly 4 months after the last part. No spoilers, but there is some mild gore in this one, no violence.

This next installment immediately follows the last one. I promise, I will get to the class stuff very soon and I really hope it hasn't been too boring so far!
