Hi! I'm Lauren. I lead a community that calls themselves the Flutie-Pies. With what little power I have in the world, I try to normalize kindness and to give people a safe, welcoming place to be themselves.

I've been involved in the VGM scene since 2010, and I've been posting my own solo YouTube covers as "Lauren the Flute" since 2012. I play flute and sing. I really like doing these things — especially performing music from video games. Sometimes I dress up! In 2015, I started streaming my first Earthbound playthrough, and now I stream all sorts of things — gaming, but also music and cooking and soon art! I have an MFA in creative writing, so (unsurprisingly) I'm writing a novel. And I lead a video game cover band, The Returners. You could say I keep pretty busy.

In 2018, I took the scary step to become a full-time freelancer. It's been a bumpy ride so far, but it's beginning to even out. Most of my income comes from my copywriting and editing work, but I'd love to be able to focus even more than I do on streaming, music, art, and fiction. Patreon helps with that. Thanks so much for supporting me and my little kitties!

I have two computers right now: a really, really cheap three-year-old laptop and a six-year-old hand-me-down desktop. Neither of them is especially good at streaming on Twitch or rendering video. They've both got lots of problems. If I can upgrade to a new computer, then my streams would be more reliable, my videos would render better, I could use multiple cameras more readily in a stream, I could maybe play and stream newer games ... it would be great.
