When she was a baby, Laura pulled on Prince Harry's hair and ripped quite a few out.
She's Justin's little sister. She's English.
Why people pick on her: "Because I’m short, I’m scrawny, I’ve got limp hair, I haven’t grown into a chest and I like to draw scribbles all over everything… (rolls eyes)"
Laura is still small, and not quite as developed yet. She’s often pointed out for that. Her choice of clothing (which I think Dwight has adequately described in canon) also gets her some problems.
Another reason why she is picked on is because she has a popular brother who (now) seems to be good at a great deal of things, and she isn’t.
She’s not a very people person and doesn’t easily make friends because she can have quite a bit of a temper.
She is often caught up with drawing and scribbling things.
Laura will not be at Dalton's prom.
She has a Great Dane as a pet.
She likes to wear very bright clothes (multicolored socks, rainbow arm warmers, pastel spectrum hat and bright pink sunglasses)
She really doesn’t understand the meaning of “no” and “cannot.”
The other girls make fun of her for her lack of breasts.
She has the tendency to judge you if you attempt to operate beneath the intellect she expects from you.
She is actually able to lift things off her more experienced and more dangerous brother and she takes matters into her own hands if no one wants to listen to her.
While both Justin and Laura find things universally boring in other visits, they like visiting their grandma. They get into the massive mansion with gilded walls and vaulted ceilings and lots of old stuff that's worth a lot of money and then Laura heads straight to the antique tea set collections on the glass case to stare.
She has a 26 year old cousin who's a spy.
Laura's currently into colored felt-tip markers. She colors everything with them.
For National Brothers Week, Laura made sure she did everything for Justin, whether he liked it or not.
Laura likes milk chocolate.
Justin had to give a sex talk to Laura. She sat in front of him and asked exactly how two blocks shagged. Then she asked how two girls did it. He said right away "I thought you already know this? I have to explain??" She had an inkling, but needed elaboration. As far as Hanover is concerned, Justin's on his own.
All boys and some girls had a jousting competition. Laura wasn't jousting, but she watched. She wore a purple and blue ensemble, and hoped that Justin got knocked off his horse.
Justin was the one who taught Laura how to braid her hair. And he also made sure her ponytails were neat before sending her to school back when they were younger.
Laura says she wants a rugged jeep of some kind when she gets to be able to drive.
She's a freshman. She's in Prima.
Some people making fun of Laura at her school got owned by her. Her parents ended up getting a call, saying that Laura concussed some kids during lacrosse. Her dad just asked if they deserved it, and when Laura said they did, he said he hoped she put some force behind it.
(Not happened yet) During the Initation Dares at Dobry, Laura and Sadie made out with each other.
Laura was picked on at school, but she got her own back in little ways. She got called flat once by an older girl...and so Laura switched the girl's swimsuit with a dissolving bikini. (Yes, dean's office was the result. But Rick and Lindsay were too used to this kind of thing by now.)
On pet day, Laura brought along Boris who was dragging her along - she was having trouble controlling him.
Serendipity Hill Hunters
Hypothetically, if Sadie and Laura liked each other, Laura would make the first move. Laura and Sadie saved Morgan, Dwight, and Lucas from the undead once (AU most likely)
Laura has flown into the hunters base in Florida because of meeting Dwight through high school connections.
She matches Dwight in energy during hunting/battle but can be very reckless and jumps the gun.
Family finance ranking: Laura (for ancestry reasons), and then Dwight, then Luke, then Morgan and Sadie.
They all like books, but it's Dwight, Sadie, and Morgan in particular who are into the reference stuff. Laura and Luke (Lucas) are more into getting into action.
Lucas says about the Hunters, "I doubt we fall into the "pretty awesome" category, we tend to just follow Dwight's lead."
Lucas says about him, Morgan and Dwight, "The girls kinda have to save our butts sometimes."
The original list of names, the Roster, was written many years back, on a piece of yellowing, blue-ruled paper. At the top, it says, The Hunters of Serendipity Hill. The first name was Thomas Dwight Perry.
The second name was Alan Bryce Perry. And then, in different inks, as though one after the other, were the names Lucas Walters, Morgan Powell, Sadie Moore, and finally, in the newest of the inks, was Laura Bancroft.
Throughout the years, the Roster looked a little abused, wrinkled and aging. The first name had the Perry crossed out in ink, and replaced by Houston instead.
The second name, though the person in question no longer walked the world, remained, and no one ever made any reference whatsoever to ever crossing it out, or removing it. It remains there to this day.
