Laura Jacquez Valentine is a slash fan fiction writer. She began writing fan fiction in her teens in the mid-1990s, writing in both Star Trek and Beauty and the Beast fandoms. The first Star Trek story she posted was a Spock/female piece called "Lonely Words" in the summer of 1996.
A fan wrote: "She's a pull-no-punches writer, with a sharp, edgy, and occasionally hilarious take on whatever fandom she's gracing at the moment. I love her characterization; this is a woman who recognizes the existence of a y-chromosome, and depicts its effects accurately in her men. }}
In 1999 she participated in an interview series on the COCO CHANNEL: "[My stories] have a very dreamlike quality, which is deliberate. Sometimes it slips into the surreal. I like to write psychological pieces, and the vast majority of my work is first-person. The insides of heads are peculiar places to be, but that's where most of my stories are set--inside someone's head. And the people aren't always reliable, or sane."

- Dog Tags series, a The Sentinel fic that assumes Blair did not lie when he said he flew helicopters in Desert Storm, and sort of anti-fanon at the time it was written, but was then followed by others with the same premise from other authors
- Zombie Hand of Rob Lowe, a fanfic critique
- The Wrong Tree, a Sherlock fic, "He didn't see why John wouldn't be interested, but John was peculiarly picky about some things (such as firing guns in the flat and going on dates with people who were not Sherlock), and he did not have enough data to know for certain whether John was, perhaps, only interested in burly men, or blond men, or non-sociopathic men. (On the other hand, John found shooting people pleasant and steadying, so he didn't have any room at all to object.)"
