Lauren the Flute is a musician, singer, and streamer/Let's Player, known for her cheerful demeanor and rambling LP style.
She typically goes into the games she plays blind, and self-describes as the opposite of a speedrunner - a "spongerunner", in her parlance, soaking everything up. She likes to take her time through games, seeing the sights, discovering what there is to see, and experiencing every facet of the world she can find. She's also known for occasional wild digressions, taking the time to speculate wildly, engage with her viewers, take deep dives on the themes of a game and her feelings pertaining to it, or get distracted by cats.
She can be found on her Twitch channel, where she typically streams on Tuesday and Thursday evenings.
Replays of her Let's Plays, as well as her music, can be found on her YouTube channel.

Tropes appearing in Lauren the Flute's LPs include:
- Cuteness Proximity: Whenever a cat makes an appearance (either in a game or in real life), it's not uncommon for the gameplay to grind to a screeching halt as both she and the chat take a moment to gush about how cute they are. Nobody seems to mind.
- Fan Community Nickname: Fans are affectionately known as "Flutiepies".
- Precision F-Strike: Lauren typically refrains from swearing during her streams, but she couldn't help but let one slip during her Final Fantasy X playthrough when she saw the aftermath of Operation Mi'ihen.
- Running Gag: In any game which allows her to jump, Lauren *will* try to jump on anything and everything. This seldom goes unremarked.
- Referring to every item in a Zelda game as a hookshot.
