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.
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.
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.
