Viking AU: She’s either the sister to a great viking leader or she is the great viking leader. Either way she has a sword, and a lot of ships and no one messes with her. Are there dragons in this au too? I hope so.
Ghost AU: Summoned by some dumb kids messing with a ouija board, Lanes was murdered quite a while ago and now haunts the corridors of some big abandoned house.
Gangster/Maf/Film Noir AU: Laney’s one of the best ladies they’ve got on the force; no funny business, no missed targets, and one of the cleanest track records to date. Probably not in her best interest to fall for the mafia head’s son.
Space AU: A skilled linguist, Lanes acts as the crew’s translator and negotiator on unfamiliar planets. She’s gotten her captain out of more tight binds than she’d like to recall.
Vamp AU: Dared to explore some creepy abandoned house on a dare, Laney becomes the best friend and only link to the outside world for a particularly friendly blue haired vampire.
God/dess AU: She’s either the goddess with the shortest fuse and the hottest temper, or she’s the reluctant nanny of one bursting-with-energy-and-self-confidence rock god.
Highschool But Not Students AU: Laney’s definitely the principle, but because her school falls under the dictation of the teacher’s union, she can’t fire the one who wants her spot at the top.
Monster AU: Lanes is definitely a gargoyle, all sharp and hard on the outside, big ol’ softy on the inside.
Programmer AU: Lanes is the grumpiest, latest working programmer for sure. Always wants everything done perfectly.
Robot AU: I could see her as a companion android, maybe a prototype someone dug out of the scrap heap and polished up, or she could be a totally kickass fighter bot that gets tossed for a newer model and then has to work her way back to the top of the charts with the help of a few new friends.
