Hello and Welcome!
I am Laura Ellie and this is where you can support me and help me on my journey to share my love of writing and creating with the whole world! I'm a writer of fantasy and sci-fi, of worlds filled with magic and people trying figure out where exactly they belong. I post story updates twice a month, maybe more if I can get my butt into gear! Story updates will be about my original work, but if I'm working on a fan-fic, you can get inside look at what it'll be about before I share it with everyone else. If you become a patron, you will have access to my work before it is posted online for the whole world, you might even get to see it before the writing is finished! The more you pledge each month, the more fun things you can have access to! I really hope you decide to jump on board and help me live out my dream of being a writer. I don't think that my writing deserves all the praise and money in the world, but money buys food to feed the brain engine... so, patreon!
Tier rewards are likely to shift around a little bit as I am new to this system and will likely have to figure everything out thru trial and error. Apologies in advance!

a little about my stories
Currently, I am working on Felix & Aiden, a story about two college roommates who, despite a rough start, become best friends and try their best to fix each other's love lives. If only they realized everything they are looking for is right in front of them...
My other main project is Under Eden. It's sci-fi adventure about teen boy who bites off way more than he can chew when he discovers some of the grisly secrets of his city's underworld. He accidentally unlocks an ancient power, but to keep his family out of danger he will have to learn how to control this power, or everything he loves could come crumbling down...
A personal project of mine is an untitled anthology series about The Legend of Zelda. It's takes place in the Breath of the Wild's timeline and focuses on how the two met each other and slowly grew to trust each other with their lives. I won't be posting the chapters here (i don't wanna tango with legal issues honestly) but I will post updates about what each chapter will be about and how I go about the fan-fiction writing process!
I am also working on a comic series called Light Amidst Shadow, but I currently do not have an artist for this series, so this project is at a standstill. But! If you are an artist looking to collab with a writer on a fantasy series, let me know! This story is very dear to my heart and I think it would be best told through a visual format, but sadly my art skills are pretty subpar. 


and just a little about me
To say I've been writing all my life would be a bit of an exaggeration, but it wouldn't necessarily be untrue. My first written story was about twin sisters who have to pretend to be each other in order to stop a bank robbery (at least I think that's what it was about, it has been a while). After receiving encouragement from family, friends, and teachers that my writing didn't totally suck, I decided to low-key dedicate my life to it. Eventually, I was able to get into college to study my butt off over the two things I loved most: writing and television. Now, I am a double graduate from the "highly selective" University of Texas, with one degree in Rhetoric & Writing and one in Radio, Television, & Film. Thusly, I am aggressively qualified for my dream job of being a TV writer, but like any job, just because you're qualified doesn't mean you magically get a job in your desired field. I care about writing and creating stories more than basically anything (excluding acting and horseback riding, working on those outside of patreon) so rather than wait for an old white man to decide I'm good enough to join his writing team, I'm throwing my stories out into the world in hopes they connect with someone.
