Healing Horses & Troubled Teens since 1995
Not every teenager has the benefit of growing up in a loving, happy home. Some are victims of abuse, neglect, a system that shuffles them from foster home to foster home. Brook Haven Ranch was established in 1995 as a refuge for abused and neglected horses -- and teenagers who needed a second chance in life and the opportunity to become something more than society expects of them.

Back in January, Lauren's father married Nicole Brook, which was a big step for everyone, including Lauren. She, her sisters, and her dad had all lost her mother years before, but for Lauren, she'd give anything to be able to talk to her. Having Nic around is nice, but sometimes it's also painful, and Lauren's struggled to figure out how it is that she fits.

Essentially a Brook grandchild, she spends quite a bit of time on BHR, volunteering, especially since the (ridiculous) expulsion that's left her parents in the position to deem that homeschooling might be best.

Lauren's a sweet girl, but don't let that fool you, she's got enough sass to keep anyone on their toes. Including some of the Brooks. She's going to be present on Brook Haven, not only helping with ranch chores, but helping with the horse Tony gave her.

But what will happen when her biological father shows up, wanting to put a claim on her that he gave up years ago, contesting rights that the man she's only ever even known as a father isn't *right* for her, now that her biological mother is deceased?

About Lauren

  • Lauren's mom was told to abort her. Everyone thought that Lauren was going to be a problem, except for Lauren's mom, Lydia. Despite being told to abort the baby, and Lauren's sperm donor handing her money to do it, Lydia decided to keep her baby, and used the money that she was given to get her own apartment. She dropped out of school, got a job and supported herself and Lauren until she finally made her appearance in November of 2005.

  • Lauren took to Liam right away. She was little when the man that is her dad was introduced to her, and she took to him right away. He treated her like a person, instead of something keeping him from being able to see her mom, and it didn't take long for her to figure out that he really did love them.

  • When Liam asked Lydia to marry him, Lauren answered. When Liam asked Lydia to marry him, Lauren was there and she answered for her mother before Lydia even had a chance, which made all three of them laugh.

  • Lauren asked Liam if he would be her Daddy forever. Shortly after her dad proposed to her mom, she made a card for him that asked if he would be her daddy forever. On the card was the picture of the three of them together. Before Liam, she'd never had a dad.

  • Lauren loves photography. You can't remake memories and the times that pass by will never happen again, which is why she loves to take pictures of what's going on in the moment. Lauren almost always has a camera on her.

  • When Sarah was born, Lauren was jealous. When her parents had his little sister, she was jealous at first. She loved her sister, but she was worried that there wouldn't be a place for her anymore.

  • Lauren got suspended in kindergarten. When she was five, she was suspended from school for hitting an aid. She had tried to tell the school officials what had happened, but because she'd been so worked up at the time, no one took her seriously. The suspension was lifted when the real story was discovered, one of the classroom aid had attempted to remove her against her will by tugging harshly on her arm.

  • Lauren wasn't jealous when Jess came along. By the time that Jess came along, Lauren knew that she wasn't going to be replaced. She was very excited the entire time her mom was pregnant and couldn't wait for her little sister.

  • Lauren told her mom that she was going to have a baby. One night, Lauren climbed into bed with her parents and curled up with them, then announced that she was going to have another little sister -- that the angel in her closet had told her so.

  • Lauren is angry with God. Lauren is really angry with mom over her mom's death. It's been years, and she's still mad that she's not there and she doesn't trust him. One night, she even called him a "sadistic mother fucker", which are very big words for an eleven year old and got her into a TON of trouble. She's still mad Him.

  • Lauren believes in angels. Angry or not, Lauren stills believes and with those beliefs comes the belief in angels.

  • Lauren loves to snowboard. She loves to go out to the slopes and snowboard -- she hasn't done it in a while, but she loves it when she gets the chance to go out.

  • Lauren is really good at styling hair. She loves to do hair. Hers is usually done up and out of the way, but typically in a really cute fashion. She likes to do her sisters hair and has been known to play with Jess's until she won't put up with it anymore.

New Mom

Nicole joined their family in January, and Lauren's still adjusting. She's known Nic forever, and always adored her, but it's been an adjustment having her move in. She's struggling with being a pre-teen, and it's easy to take some of that out on their newest arrival.

You don't belong here

Lauren is struggling with where she fits in. She isn't the most secure kid, and she worries about where her place is in her family, and on both the ranches. After getting kicked out of the barns by one of the hands on her dad's ranch, she decided to go with Nicole one weekend, where she also got told she didn't belong. It's caused some confidence issues and for her to retreat.

Finding faith

Lauren believes in God, but she's been struggling with her faith since her mother died. She tries really hard to put on a happy for her dad, who's incredibly spiritual, but she's having a hard time dealing with her feelings, and her feelings that God took her mom away from her. She's angry with him, and she thinks that what he did was wrong. She loves Nic, but it's not about Nic, sometimes she just wishes her mom was still there, and she's having to come to terms with the fact that God isn't something she can control.

About Lauren

Lauren is the daughter of Liam Holmes, who recently married Nicole Brook. It's taken a bit of time for her to adjust. Losing her mom was a blow, and it's left her pretty hurt, confused, and more than a little bit angry with God. She's in a vulnerable place right now as she adjusts to Nicole joining the family, and dealing with everything that means.

Through Nic, Lauren has inherited ties to Brook Haven, and she's not sure what to do with that. They've always been neighbors, but it's strange being weirdly related to Logan and Amber Brook, and it's a lot of family ties to remember, which can be more overwhelming than she likes to let on.

All in all, Lauren is a pre-teen, stuck between being a kid and a teenager, and has a lot of those confusing hormones going on, along with a desire to grow up. She deals with this by trying to act more "grown up" than she is at times, which can lead to awkward situations, along with both Nic and her dad telling her to slow down.

Platonic

Lauren doesn't tend to have all that many friends, she likes to have a few people that she's particularly close to -- people that she can trust with everything she is, and who can truly be the person that she is. These people know the real Lauren, and put up with her when she gets difficult, but stick around because, despite everything, she's worth it. The people she's closest with, she loves fiercely, and heaven help a person that gets between her and them.

Those who know her best, know about her love for the country, and that she wants to be able to see the world, but that her family ranch is her home -- she'd be crushed to not be able to go back to it. They also know of her love for photography, that her mom died, and that she's not okay even when she's trying to act like she is.

Romantic

That isn't going to happen. Not only is she only eleven, but her Dad wouldn't let her happen even if she was older, probably.

Antagonistic

Not the person that you want as an enemy. Not only can she be mean as a snake, but she doesn't typically feel bad about getting back at people that hurt her, her family, or those she loves. She doesn't forgive easily, and she doesn't tolerate things that are different from her.

Familiar

Lauren is particularly close with her family. She has two younger sisters, her dad, her Uncle, and there's Nicole's family too (she's still getting used to that). Lauren tends to be less tense around family, she tries to relax and let them in more than other people. She loves to take pictures of them.

Realistically though, Lauren's really scared of losing more of them, and what that means for her. Her heart is already broken, and she's not sure what she'd do if someone else she loved left.

QUOTE
Your character is lost and there is no one for miles. What do they do? How do they react?

She shouldn't have strayed from the path. Nic had told her not to, but she'd taken her camera with her and got distracted taking pictures. Of course, she'd known that she'd strayed, but not how long ago -- just that the path was no longer visible from where she was. The only thing she had with her was her camera, she hadn't planned to be gone long, but as she looked around, she found that she didn't recognize where she was anymore.

They're gonna kill me if they find out I didn't stick to the trails, or that I didn't take a buddy. It had been hard enough to convince Nicole that she was old enough to hit the trails with a buddy, but when she'd been unable to find someone to go with her, she'd decided to go anyways. Now that she'd gotten lost, she saw why taking someone with her might have been a good idea, but there wasn't anything she could do from the middle of the forest.

Taking a seat against a fallen trunk, she sighed, remembering when her dad had once told her about getting lost. If you get lost, park it and stay where you are. It's easier for someone to find your if your not moving. Waiting had never been something she was good at though, and with the sun going down, she was nervous. The snap of a twig made her jump. "Hello? Is there anyone there!?!?" But the only response was a rabbit running off and Lauren sighed.

"You know, God, if you got me out this one, I might think about going to church on Sunday without ear plugs...." The ear plugs had been a suggestion of Sierra's and one that she'd only done once, and while she knew God didn't really work like that it was worth a shot.

Another swig snapped, and she sighed, certain that it was a just another rabbit, unaware that there was someone there she rubbed her hands against her jeans, as she tried to get rid of the nervous palm sweat.

Habits

Morning Chores

Every morning, after Lauren gets up and out of bed, it's always chores first. Over the years, it's become something that comes naturally. It's not uncommon for her to not even both changing out of her pajamas to do them.

Snooze

Lauren HATES waking up in the morning. She'll usually attempt to go back to sleep at least once after being woken up by her parents.

Last Minute

Procrastinator, to the extreme -- Lauren will intentionally put off doing things until the absolute last minute. This wasn't always a thing, but over the last few years she's started to do it so much that it's become a habit. This particular tendency can cause an issue with time sensitive things.

Quirks

Nervous Eating

A lot of people don't eat when they're nervous, but Lauren is just the opposite, when she's nervous or upset about something she stuffs her face. It's not untypical for her to come home after a rough day at school and immediately open the fridge -- this is typically an indication that something might be up. You can tell the difference between her nervous eating and hungry eating, because she'll use food as an excuse not to talk when it has to do with nerves.

Prone to spacing out

Lauren has a tendency to space out, to stop what she's doing and simply stare on occasion. There doesn't seem to be any one thing that sets it off, and teachers often become irritated with her for it.

Loves board games

In her family, family game night is a thing, and she loves it. Since she was little, she's always adored board games, and that's never changed. In the day and age of electronics, it's actually something that makes her a bit odd, but since they don't have personal computers or tablets in their house, it isn't like there's other forms of entertainment.

Potty Mouth

At eleven, Lauren is attempting to discover her independence, and part of that is swearing. She gets a little bit of a thrill out of using the words, and while it hasn't become pervasive enough to happen around her parents, the time will come where she slips or they overhear something. Either way, on occasion, some shocking things come out of her mouth.

Hobbies

photography

Lauren got her first camera of her own when she was seven. It hadn't been a super expensive camera, but to her, the Polaroid type of camera had meant everything to her, and she loved being able to snap pictures of moments. Now she has gobs of pictures, and it's a good thing too, because each of those pictures holds a memory. The older she gets, the better she gets at taking photos.

scrap booking

When you take as many pictures as Lauren does, you need some place to put the best ones. Before her mother died, she'd introduced Lauren to the idea of scrap booking, but it was Nicole that has spent the last few months teaching her how to do it.

horse back riding

Lauren loves horses, and when she was younger she'd actually started taking some english riding lessons at the stables in town, but she'd never really taken off with it. Between English riding just not being her thing, and her mom having passed shortly after, she didn't go back. She rides western at home, but doesn't have a horse of her own.

Skills

photography •

Lauren never gave up photography. She couldn't. She loved it too much, and she has natural talent for taking some pretty awesome photos. She says it's because she sees things differently than most people.

piano •

She get lessons until after her parents got married -- her mom was always too busy. She doesn't take lessons anymore, or play, but it's a skill that she has.

drawing •

Lauren's pretty good at most artistic things. She enjoys drawing, but only when she's feeling inspired. It's not something she does all of the time.

Interests

traveling

Lauren wants to see the world. It just so happens that she's never actually been out of Montana. So for now, she borrows books from the library and learns what she can about different places that she'd like to visit some day.

languages

If you want to travel the world, you have to learn to speak with the people you're going to be around. She's started picking at learning different languages, but has yet to master them.

make up

Her dad doesn't want her to have make up, but it's something that she's interested in and would love to explore, if given the chance.

Desired Plots

A bang to the end of the school year

Lauren's going to wind up expelled for the duration of the school year, which will be a pretty big deal to .... both her parents. It's probably not going to go over well, but it will make for an interesting plot. The reason for the expulsion is a two part, first she was caught kissing a boy at school, then when one of the teachers got rougher with the boy than he needed to, she pulled out her digital camera (which she wasn't supposed to have) and started taking pictures. She gets expelled both for the physically intimacy and for the use of her camera on school property.

She's not spacing out

Lauren has been accused of spacing out more than a time or two, but reality is these aren't just her day dreaming -- they're seizures. It could be neat if someone discovered this and brought it to her attention that it might not be what she's been told that it is by the school.

Tag a long

Lauren is eleven, which makes her considerably younger than even some of the youngest students on Brook Haven. She doesn't like it when her sisters get into her stuff or start following her around, but she's not likely to see that she's doing the same thing to someone else. I'd like it if it was a teenager that didn't treat her like she was a little kid, because in her mind, she's not one, and wouldn't react well to someone telling her that she was.

Liam & Lauren
Obviously we've talked a lot about this, but Liam needs visible plots and Lauren needs an approval plot, so here goes <3 He's going to pull her out of school and home school her following this expulsion incident. Obviously he's not happy that she broke the rules, but mostly he feels like the school massively overreacted to a couple of incidents. The kiss is a big deal, the camera less so, and he's furious with them for putting her on the spot the way that they did. So she's going to be joining him to home school starting pretty much now.

Lauren & Tyler
I'm not sure Tyler's quite what you had in mind for the tag a long plot, but I want to throw him out there, just in case. Tyler wouldn't put her down for being a little kid - if she expected him to treat her like a teenager, he mostly would. And he's be so confused by someone following him rather than the other way around that it might be interesting. (Also, if Tyler found out her getting in trouble for pulling out the camera on her teacher, Tyler is all about finding sneaky ways to manage troublesome adults while trying not to get in trouble, so he might have some things to say about that.)

Karl does go to same church as Lauren, so would have known Lauren for a long time. He doesn't mind having been in town forever (well, mostly); he's really proud of his connection to the town, even if it does make him sound old. I love the idea that Lauren might appreciate his reputation without being intimidated by it!

Lauren & Tyler
Unfortunately, Tyler goes to the other church and Lauren isn't involved with Hillbrook right now, so their opportunities to meet are limited. In the worst case, I'm sure they'll have a chance to meet at an event, but is it possible that the two church's have youth events together sometimes?

Tyler lived in Trader's Bend until he was 7, when his family was in a serious car accident. His mother was seriously injured, and he went to live with his father, step-mother, and step-sister for several years. After using a horse riding accident to reveal their abuse, he's returned to live with his mother again.

Lauren & Tyler
I'd love to get a thread going between Lauren and Tyler. The religious themes might be interesting, because Tyler is probably behind Lauren in figuring out his relationship to religion, so it might be most interesting to put them together at a youth group event. I'd be happy to write a starter if you're okay with it.

Kalea & LaurenI figured i would pop in and leave this here. not sure how likely it is that they would interact but if Kalea were to run into Lauren, she would just treat her like a person. It would have nothing to do with her age per say. Course if the cards fell right, she might look at her as a little sister. she misses having a sibling after her brother died, so she would see Lauren as a way of being able to be a sister to someone again.Hit me back!

West & Lauren
I am the tiniest bit surprised that i haven't gotten to this before, but I'm getting to it now. Here's Uncle West. (I realize that I could also be doing this with Logan but I wanted to go here first because I feel like she and West probably have a more established relationship.) West is the sort of person who naturally gets down with the kids. He's a play-er, enjoys doing things with the kids, and they probably had their fair share of tea parties when she was younger and when she was on leave. The problem, of course, is that he's been gone a lot. I trust that there were times that the family worried about him, even if Liam was mad at him. So I imagine that they had a good relationship while Lauren was growing up and smaller. His major concern at the present point in time is going to be what's caused her to get intimate with a boy at her age. As the victim of sexual abuse himself, he has every reason in the world to worry about this sort of behavior and what it might mean. Her father has basically overlooked this part of the story, but West is not only going to be disappointed in her for doing it, but he's going to be worried about why she is doing this at such a young age. It will concern him, for sure. I don't have any thread room right now, but I would like to get something going for her and West or her and Logan.

Dr. Gabby & LaurenSo these two might not have a lot in common but I think Gabby could be someone that Lauren might be able to talk to? Though not entirely sure how they would first meet. Gabby is usually at the ranch but does spend a fair bit of time with her two little ones out and about when she has a day off so maybe they could run into each other at a park? Or town event?Hit me back!

Mo is an only child to a Cuban immigrant who found it hard to relate to a daughter, and so he set standards high, trying to take care of her and his wife, and her mom is a social worker that spends her time helping other children. Mo grew up with Andi Thomas, and they met their other best friend, James, on the first day of Pre-K4. The three of them have been damn near inseparable since. Mo started dancing when she was five, and has grown up being really good at it.

Mo's at Brook Haven because she struggles with control issues, and developed Anorexia Nervosa in an attempt to exert some control over her life. She ran away from rehab when James attempted suicide, and her parents sent her to Brook Haven to finish her recovery.

Lauren & Mo
I just have to start off with telling you how good Lauren is. Seriously, I love how fundamentally eleven she is, trying to be older than she is, while still being eleven. Seriously, you just do such a good job with her and I'm in awe, because I don't often see kids being played well, and I love the fact that you do. While I don't have particular ideas for how to have them run into each other, I know that Lauren is on the ranch a lot so it should be fairly easy to start a thread up if we decide what we want to do. Since Mo is in the group that Nicole currently leads, they could meet through that? Maybe Mo's struggling with her horse, Chewie, and she asks Lauren for help? Mo hates asking for help, but she'd also recognize that Lauren's a good person for it, since she obviously knows her stuff when it comes to horses. Mo's a chatterbox, and she could strike up a conversation with a hole in the ground. Mo's a genuinely good person, but she can get wrapped up in what's going on with the people that matters most to her. It could be really good for her to keep in mind that just because someone isn't on the ranch doesn't mean they haven't had/aren't having their own struggles, and if Lauren needs a friend - even one with an age difference - Mo's a good one to have, and she would genuinely want to be a person that Lauren can talk to.

Parrish & Lauren
Given that Lauren is around the ranch a fair bit, I figure that it would make sense for these two to run into each other at some point. Whilst it might make more sense to toss one of my students at her, Parrish actually has more in common with Lauren - namely, photography and sketching. I was thinking that it might be interesting if one of them came across the other messing around with their camera, and they could wind up having a conversation about it? Maybe Parrish could teach her some tricks? He might not push himself all that much at it, but he has been doing it longer than she's been alive, so I figure he must know something by now. All in all, Parrish thinks Lauren is a sweet kid who's going through some stuff right now. He understands what it's like to lose your mother - really understands - and, if she were willing, he could try to help her work through her grief? Maybe? Even if it's just letting her talk at him, he's got the patience to sit through it and try to offer words of comfort/advice/whatever she needs.
