Regret Nothing (Rain Fanfic)
 Looking past the screen of her laptop, Heather glanced toward the young woman working the register. Last weekend, the two had gotten together as friends to drink and chat. Things ended up getting complicated after that, though, what with the kissing and then her ex showed up the next day and he just made things more difficult for everyone, well meaning though he may have been. Regardless, the weekend had been a bit of a wake-up call in regards to things like regret and personal understanding. And here Heather was, a Thursday evening, waiting to meet with someone who could help her with at least one of her many regrets. While she stared over her computer at her best friend who she may or may not have a crush on in spite of knowing better.
“Excuse me, miss?” A slightly gruff, yet comforting voice came from over Heather's shoulder. Even after over 15 years, she knew exactly who was standing there.
Turning to face the man, she smiled. A few of his hairs here and there wer

All the World's a Stage (Rain Fanfic)
    “Okay, so if x is 15, than y is... wait, that's not right.” The need for so many math credits for an arts degree continued to befuddle Jack, even into the early days of his second semester. Then again, the university had recommended, nay, insisted that he take them, and without a clue what he wanted to minor in, it made sense to roll with it and see if maybe the subject appealed to him. So far though, no dice. “Oh, right, negative numbers cubed stay negative. There's the problem.”
    “A college math book? And here I thought I was smart.” Jack's eyes sprang from the page, dragging his head along with them. Before him sat someone familiar, a person he knew from a simpler time.
    “Oh my god, Maria?” A smile sprang to his face as his old schoolmate took the seat across from him at the table.
    Maria smiled back at him. “It's good to see you too, Jack.” Resting her arm

The Difference a Year Makes
Did you ever like me back?  Those words rang in her mind as she stood there, looking through the doorway of a familiar bookstore chain at an unfamiliar mall.  Ian had suggested they make a pitstop here, that it might be fun to shop at a mall in another town, that they had plenty of time to get back before Sunday evening.  All these things were true, of course, but as Allison saw the oddly familiar face of a stranger in the bookstore chairs, she began to wonder if maybe the universe had guided her here.  That, of course, depended entirely on if that girl with the long, brown braid was who she seemed to be.
How does one approach someone who seems familiar in this manner, though?  Allison suspected it might be a bit much to go running up, yelling a name that clearly wouldn't belong to the person she was trying to talk to.  But then again, her brain reminded her that Ryan was pretty bad at picking up on subtl

Hey, a journal entry!  Things and stuff!  Be prepared for disappointing answers. ^_^ #DeviantArtistQuestionnaire 

How long have you been on DeviantArt?
    Let's see... looks like 3 years ago.

What does your username mean?
    That's a fun story.  See, just after I had joined deviantArt, I changed my name to Laura.  However, the name Laura Rola is actually referencing Turn A Gundam, although it's often spelled Laura Rolla.  The main character uses this name during situations where he decides to dress up all pretty and sweet and feminine. Flirtatious 

Describe yourself in three words.
    Sweet, thoughtful, uncertain.

Are you left or right handed?
Right handed, although in some limited cases, I can be ambidexterous.

What was your first deviation?
That would be this one right here:
Tumblr Pony Headshot by LauraRola
It's a pony OC I created, Rem Sleep.  I'm still working on her story kinda, although I haven't drawn anything official for her in months (and those were just some sketches)

What is your favourite type of art to create?
I love traditional sketches, pencils mainly.  Although I really want to learn digital art, but I haven't invested the time yet.  Don't worry, I most certainly will do that.  Laura, while uncertain, loves to learn, so she'll push herself to try some new stuff sometimes.
Chibi Me, kinda ^_^ by LauraRola
See how happy she is when she's learning stuff? :happybounce: 

If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be?
I'd probably want a style akin to :iconotterlore:.  She has such a beautifully cute style that I wish I could just steal so darn much.

What was your first favourite?
     Brony Discussions by AnticularPony
Some ponies chatting about stuff, including Rem, of course!  Drawn by :iconanticularpony:

What type of art do you tend to favourite the most?
Art from friends, fanart that I like, occasionally plushes... Just whatever happens to strike my fancy at the time.

Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist?
There are a few, a number of which are friends of mine IRL.  :iconotterlore:, :iconbrainedbysaucepans:, :iconjocelynsamara:, and :iconanticularpony: are probably my favorites overall.

If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be?
All those ones in the favorites?  Yeah, I would love to meet all of them, and a few others.

How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?
The deviant that has had the most impact on my life would be :iconbrainedbysaucepans:, who happens to be my former boyfriend and the first person I really had a relationship with after I began transition.  He inspires me, and I feel much better about myself thanks to him.  He's pretty dang awesome and deserves more attention for his incredible art that just keeps getting better and better over time.

What are your preferred tools to create art?
Pencil and paper, or this rather simple Huion tablet for my computer.  Basically, cheap but effective tools are my tools of choice.

What is the most inspirational place for you to create art?
Technically nowhere in particular?  I just sit in front of my computer or laptop, and will occasionally sketch while at work or a friend's house if I'm feeling comfortable enough.

What is your favourite DeviantArt memory?
I don't have a specific one, but every time I get comments supporting my work, it means so much to me.  Thank you to everyone who has taken any interest in my over my time here, and here's hoping I can somehow manage to get my rear in gear and bring you more art and fiction in the future!

Thanks much for reading!
