I love messages, comments, anything! Don't be shy to drop me a line -- EVER!
The name's Ava Jacqueline. A.J or Jac for short. I like to think of myself as both a Chicago and Boston native being that I grew up in both cities. I currently live in Maine with my boyfriend, whom I love dearly. A writer who constantly suffers from a severe case of writer's block, I have a ton of ideas floating around in my head for all of my stories, yet it's hard to put them all in words and form a sensible, believable plot. My writings mostly involve a certain character in a film and an original female character of mine being romantically involved. I usually keep true to the script of the film I'm writing about and just basically add my own character(s) into the mix and tweak the storyline in a few ways to make it my own (example: removing other significant characters that were once in the script). I always give credit to the original author(s) so I'm not stealing. I'm making it original with my own character(s) and if you have a prob with it, do me a favor and just don't read it. If not, then enjoy and thank you!
Although most of my stories tend to lean towards the romance genre and usually have original characters in them, I never read stories such as these. I know it's weird, but if I read a summary and it's in the romance category and/or says it contains an OC, I automatically skip over it. This is in general for any type of story I browse through, not just 'Ninja Turtles' or 'Da Vinci Code' fics. There have been few (and let me stress, few) exceptions but it takes alot to hold my interest when it comes to such fics. Sci-fi, action/adventure, cest and/or slash fics are other genres I tend to avoid, unless the summary intrigues me enough to give it a chance.
Hopefully this little confession of mine won't deter anyone from reading my own stories. :crosses fingers and looks up with wide, wet, innocent Michelangelo eyes: I'm just not into love stories but I love to create them. Sounds strange perhaps, but I'm just being honest. I'm more of a humor and angst/tragedy/hurt/comfort/drama type of reader.
I am currently working on a story that is not meant for public posting. Only a very few handful of people are reading it upon request and receive it through private emails. It's entitled, Collapse, and the reason why it's not on here or any other site or forum is due to the subject matter involved and my insecurities of possible criticism over it. It involves my OC, Traci and Raphael being captured and tormented by familiar enemies. I'm not too sure how detailed I'll get with descriptions in certain scenes but the action that takes place is pretty brutal, no matter how graphic I decide to make it. If this sounds like something you yourself are interested in by all means, send me a message with whatever queries you have regarding it and I'll try to answer them as best I can without spoiling anything in the story. Then you can make the decision of whether you'd like to read it or not.
The heroines in my stories all have a piece or two of myself whirled into them somehow but aren't completely based on me:
Michele in my 'Da Vinci Code' fic is a licensed psychatrist. I am studying to be a psychatrist so this particular fic will give me the chance to show off what I've learned for the past four years. But not to worry, I won't go too overboard with the psychological language and analytical stuff.
Lucy in my 'Green Mile' fic is a secretary. I briefly worked as a secretary the first year I left high school. The only other thing that we share is we're both sympathetic to 'flawed' (for lack of better word) people and try to see the good in everyone. Oh, and we're both attracted to seemingly 'jerks' for boyfriends. (hehe)
Traci in my 'Ninja Turtles' fic(s) is my female OC that currently has my full attention. She has a few of my characteristics and her ethnicity (mixed Italian background) is like mine, however she's mainly inspired by someone I know personally. Also, she has two completely different personalities. She's not schizo or anything, but she's very serious with certain things such as her job and issues that effect her city and the world (she is a reporter). When she's with friends, however, she's a party girl who loves to go to clubs and live it up. You'd never guess it by watching her on the news. (Hey, she's a young girl. She can't play professional career woman all the time.)
She aspired to be a dancer before settling on a career in journalism, which was something I had been studying since I was a child until I decided on another career. Dancing is my (as well as Traci's) passion. Besides that one major detail, there are a couple of other small characteristics we share, but let me note, her childhood background is not at all based on mine. Hers' is a combination of a friend of mine's personality/upbringing and my own lil imagination for a fictional character.
Here are some stories I hope to post, if I ever obtain the time, and more importantly, the patience to write them:
Ninja Turtles: Raphael and my OC, Traci Taber- This story starts at the beginning of the 1990 film and works its' way through the second, mixes with the recent cartoons and goes all the way up to the 2007 film. I'm not too sure if I'll include the third installment of the live action film in it because it was so ridiculous but it's highly possible. My character is loosely based on the April due to the fact that Traci is put in her place and her occupation is that of a television reporter. She has her own personality and character traits, though there are a few recognizable similarities between the two females which is both intentional and unintentional on my part. April will be included in my fic as a supporting character who is a friend of Traci's, however she won't be introduced until much later. Her job will be working for Winters' transporation and formerly being a lab assistant for Stockman as originally intended.
The Green Mile: Percy Wetmore and my OC, Lucy Laurel- Percy has a girlfriend (!) who is also the secretary of E block. To shake things up a bit, I made one of the changes as I stated above by having the character Dean Stanton not be married, and instead in love with Percy's gf. I have a few in script form and from Lucy's POV written as journal entries. This was the first fanfic I ever wrote and it was years ago. The one journal entry that I have posted on here I'm a bit embarrassed about because I know I could've done much better with the writing. But it was my first try so just try to forgive it. I've composed what I have in one shots but maybe (someday) I'll tie it together and post it as a full story.
The Da Vinci Code: Silas and my OC, Michele- A young psychiatrist who's faith in God has diminished unwillingly finds herself involved in something she "can't understand" and wants no part of. During this she meets an odd monk who unbeknownst to her has been admiring her for the past two months and even saved her life on one occasion. Though she knows of his vicious actions, she can't help but sympathize with the misguided young man she sees buried within the seemingly menancing monster.
