Legolas by laura (also known as "And then laura") is an infamous badfic that was posted to Quizilla, most likely sometime in the early 2000s during the site's heyday. It tells the story of Legolas' discovery of a baby in the woods, who he names Laura, and Laura's subsequent adventures at the age of 10.

Legolas by laura has inspired sporkings, numerous dramatic readings, and other parodies and is generally notorious as a prime example of terrible fanfic.

The Story

The text of the story is rather short and repeatedly uses the words "And then Laura" which also gave rise to a popular search term for the story. This is not an exaggeration as there are 88 occurrences of "and then" in this fanfic.

Apart from the repeatedly wrongly written words such as "Milkwood" instead of Mirkwood and "strdier" instead of Strider, the fanfic itself has an all over the place feeling and a very fast pace.

By reading the content it feels like the author was truly passionate and excited to write her story, not stopping at a language barrier which made it all the more precious.

Now it has become a staple for many in the Lord of the Rings fandom who knew this story from Quizilla. The story also ends abruptly due to the character limit that Quizilla had.
