Talia Franks


Talia Franks is an avid fanfiction writer and reader. They wrote their first fanfic at age 12 and have since burned it. Maybe one day they will tell you what it was about. Talia spends most of their time reading and writing, and no, that doesn’t just mean crawling through the depths of Ao3. In addition to hosting Into the Archives, Talia writes fanfiction under the username Jesmalestiel, which you can find both on Ao3 and on their fanfiction website, Jesmalestiel Tells Tales. Outside of the fanfiction realm, Talia has written critical fandom articles surrounding Harry Potter and Doctor Who, which can be found on Black Girls Create and Nerdist. Ever the writer and poet, more about Talia and their original works can be found on their personal website and blog, Word-for-Sense and Other Stories.
