Author has written 10 stories for Angel, Harry Potter, and Walking Dead.
Hello! My pen name is Jenna Black, something I came up with when I was 12 and has been with me now for over 15 years.
I am a very busy somewhat stay at home mom to three young boys (5, 2.5, and 4 weeks as of Nov. 2014), and my husband and I run our own business. This account has foundered for several years now, but in the past few months I have gone through something of an awakening, and am writing for the first time in almost 4 years. I have strong opinions about many things, and have a tendency to pair characters in a way that is not at all canon, though now I do my best to make it as believable and realistic as possible. I am a fan of the old school fade out when it comes to romantic situations; though my stories may be M it is more for blood and gore than sexuality.
I have many old stories that I wrote as a teen, I debated deleting some of them, but cannot bring myself to do it - they are a record of my past, and something that, while not to a level I totally appreciate, something to be proud of. Though as I have been reading them, they feel like strangers to me - all I can say is I was a very twisted teen apparently. They are as follows:
Harry Potter: Hermione's Letters (and the continuation), This is Who I Am, With a Kiss, No Tears, Flowers in the NightTime, What the Future Holds, How Times Can Change, Inner Conversations, Spiral Downward Thoughts, Snapshots, and Costing Not Less than Anything (my personal favorite)
Buffy/Angel: What These Eyes Have Seen, After the End, A Perfect Night, and Musings on a Lost Time
Bones: Inner Conversations: This was a challenge I gave myself to see if I could capture Bones personality. I don't connect with these characters normally and wanted to try to grow myself a little.
Many of these stories are fraught with errors, and formatting issues. I am going back to fix that, but my time in these universes are over with.
The Long Road Home: My longest work in progress, started over a decade ago now. I have picked it up and put it down many times. I tried reconnecting with this years ago and it was a resounding failure. I could remember what I planned, but couldn't connect with it, and forged on anyways. Now, I have completely forgotten what I had originally planned, but keep coming up with new ideas. I really want to finish this, and anticipate updating it in the next months, after overhauling the beginning a bit. Edit 12/30: I currently have several chapters rewritten, but in light of the fact it has taken me so long, I am holding them back until I have finished the story. Completely. Which means it will probably be a couple months, but they are all saved in multiple locations, and they will come :)_
Winters Warmth: My first visit into the Walking Dead landscape. Not technically a WIP, as this portion of it is entirely done, but I am working on a story that brings us up to this point in the characters lives. I already have something like 20 chapters planned out, I just have to get the time to write it! edit 12/30: The story companion (or precursor) is called Breakaway.
Breakaway: A precursor to Winters Warmth, beginning after the fall of the prison and following Daryl and Beth as they pick up the pieces. Currently being written, though life has interrupted several times... this is the only thing I am writing right now, and is my primary focus - whenever life cooperates, which for the past few months has been remarkably little. Though I was just able to get a chapter out, and my health issues are mostly resolved, so hopefully that will continue.
