WARNINGS -: Blackbird will contain PTSD and mental illnesses such as anxiety and depression Please keep in mind that Stranger Things is set in the 1980s, mental illness was not understood nor treated properly back then. I personally would not treat someone who has these mental illnesses they way that I write some people treating these characters, unfortunately, it's just how they would've done back then. There will also be homophobic slurs, and blatant sexism because the only good thing about the 80s was the clothes and the music. Please understand that I do NOT share the same views as some people in this story, it's just unfortunately historically accurate. Thank you for understanding!


BLACKBIRD SINGING IN THE DEAD OF NIGHT:
ooo. The Hopper Family Tragedies


WENDY EILEEN HOPPER, local amnesiac and the Chief's eldest daughter has been through a lot, not that she remembers it. Her childhood is a blur, her pre-teen years are a blur, even the supposed car accident she was in was a blur. The only thing that Wendy is sure about is her little sister, Sara Hopper, the only thing that Wendy can truly remember. Wendy Hopper had been the talk of the town prior to the concerning events of November, sixth, nineteen-eighty-three, the most thrilling thing that had happened to the town in years. Wendy had shown up at her dad's door in nineteen-eighty-one with no recollection of herself let alone him — she had been in a car crash on her way to visit him.

She took up a permanent residence with her father, Jim Hopper, and things seem to fall into place. Three years go by, she still cannot remember a time before the car accident or why she has a tattoo of the number seven on her wrist, then again no one can really explain that one ( "You were a cultist." Steve Harrington, her best friend says — not a very good explanation because she doesn't know what that means but Wendy appreciations his effort ) but she's starting to feel like a normal teenaged girl. Never before in her life had she felt like that, Wendy had always been different, although she doesn't quite recall that time, her dad says she used to have extravagant dreams of traveling to far of places and she come home with flowers in her hair — flowers sometimes not from this earth; they never could explain that one either.

When little Sara Hopper succumbed to cancer, and tragedy seemed to envelope the Hopper family day after day, Wendy's dreams were forgotten. Diane Hopper and Jim Hopper split up — Wendy doesn't remember her parents' nasty divorce and she certainly doesn't remember her sister's death. They say — Doctor Stephanie Brenner says, that a car accident and head trauma will do that to you but Wendy Hopper feels in bones that Sara is alive. The last memory of her is Sara with a shaved head but looking perfectly healthy, they're in a white room — a hospital room with rainbows and Sara's talking about something that's going to happen. There's an '006' on her wrist which Wendy is grasping tightly as they giggle about boy who apparently Wendy is going to kiss under Christmas Lights one day.

BUT WENDY HOPPER is totally fine, sure she not only has to deal with the trauma of getting into a car accident and forgetting pretty much everything about her life, she also has to deal with coming to terms with her sister's death again. So, considering her situation, Wendy Hopper is totally fine — well, she was fine until the night of November, sixth, nineteen-eighty-three. It had been a normal day — babysitting Holly Holloway, watching a group of boys and one girl fight over a board game ( the girl being Holly and the girl winning whatever the petty fight was about ), driving the girl home, and the meeting up with Steve Harrington to watch a midnight matinee of Risky Business — a totally normal day. And the she wakes up in a different dimension, almost like Hawkins but way creepier but she's not alone, Will Byers is there too and he's being chased by a monster.

In the morning she wakes up, huddled in Castle Byers but she's alone. Will Byers is nowhere to be seen — he's missing. And everything goes to shit, memories and car accidents are questioned alike, doctors start acting very strange, and a girl with a similar-looking tattoo is found in the near the same place that Will Byers went missing. Wendy Hopper realises in the worst possible way that her blurry past is withholding more than she or anyone knows ( if that's the case than perhaps Sara is really alive after all? ) and the answers lie in the hands of a selective mute with supernatural abilities.

It appears that the Hopper family attracts nothing but tragedy and misfortune — not that she remembers it but Wendy Hopper's life is filled with nothing but hard times. The last thing she needs, now that Will Byers is missing and she's the only one that can still see him, is to remember that she wasn't in a car accident but rather she was once an experiment in Hawkins Lab. But little does she know, little does anyone know just how much of this had been planned . . . .

BLACK BIRD SINGING IN THE DEAD OF NIGHT . . .

ooo. The Author's Note for Black Bird

x

[08.03.20! NEW] So I've decided to rewrite the plot of Black Bird for many reasons, the biggest one being it's much easier for me to find inspiration to write Wendy when she's with Hopper, it just feels right. So for the new plot, she's given back to her father after being at the Lab for a year and she has no idea that she was ever in the lab! ALSO, yes Sara Hopper is alive! I am SO convinced that they're going to bring back Sara into the show and that she never actually died! I am completely convinced this is going to happen so I'm making it happen in my fic ( so if it doesn't happen in the upcoming seasons,,, oops I'll just throw hands at the Duffer brothers! ) but Sara probably won't make an appearance until after season three OR in this case book three of this series! I'm super happy with this new version of the plot and I'm absolutely sure that I've got it right this time ( see: the finished prologue which will be posted once I get back to my dad's! ) AND I'm super excited for you guys to read this version of it!

Also there will be a book for each season just because it's easier for me to write! So, Black Bird is book one ( season one of stranger things ) and the next book will be announced shortly after I finish this one! That being said, I hope you guys are as excited as I am to read the new and improved version of Black Bird!

[06.08.20!] Okay so Black Bird has been revamped, you might not be able to tell the difference besides the change of name, but it is different and it's better than ever. The way I had planned it in the beginning and the sub plot I had for how Wendy gets involved with the kids was really hindering my motivation to write the first chapter of this book, I had it completed three times but when I went back it was always weird to me and it didn't feel like it felt right. So basically that plot is changed and I also decided to keep Wendy's name the same as her birth name because it's less confusing to read and also it just feels right to have Wendy keep the one normal-ish thing she had at the lab. Anyway, now that those issues are fixed, I promise you that Wendy's story will be on it's way! I hope you guys are as excited as I am!

[03.08.20! old] I can't believe I'm actually publishing this plot? like after three, four years? I came up with it shortly after season one came out and I watched it and fell in love with pretty much every character! Of course this version is a lot different than the original ( *cough* the OC was a Carrie White wannabe that was actually taken out of the lab with permission from a scientist ( which used to be an old version of Margo ) and she happened to be Sara Hopper but since I've come up with the plot the dates of Sara's birth and death have been released and uhhhh they didn't add up so I changed that in this version and gave Sara and older sister and Hopper another daughter because Hopper deserves more kids! He's a great father ( he's just a little clueless when it comes to Wendy's exact situation, you'll see what I mean in chapter one 👀👀👀 ) I'm literally so excited for this! I hope you all are too, thanks for reading!

You can thank EatYourDamnAppless for inspiring me to actually publish it! His Nancy Wheeler fic 'Philophobia' ( this fic can be found on Wattpad or Quotev ) inspired me to write a one-shot for Wendy's character and then he helped me plan out the plot you're reading now, so you owe it all to him, he's the reason that I actually published the book and not just a one-shot ( which ironically I still haven't posted that yet ) so go check him out because he deserves all the love in the world for being an amazing friend and writer!
