Author has written 13 stories for Glee, Warehouse 13, and Alphas.
Where else you can find me:
- It's almost the same as here on FF, but you can find the character overviews for the 'Midnight Magic' contest here.
FictionPress (James Dreire) - This is where I will post all my original work.
- Same as the FP, but I will also post previews of my novels here. (The Midnight Magic preview is up here.)
Oh yeah, I'm also looking for a beta. Mostly for Midnight Magic and/or my Light Years/Dark Ages series. But I wouldn't mind a beta for Glee, Warehouse 13 or Switched at Birth. PM me if you're interested.
My Favorite pairings:
Xena/Gabrielle(Xena:Warrior Princess): The ultimate eternal soulmates. I just love watching these two. The best portrayal of true love anywhere.
Rachel/Quinn(Glee): Very cute. Very flangsty.
Rachel/Santana(Glee): A whole lot of sparks.
Gabriella/Sharpay(High School Musical): I just can't resist cuteness.
Spencer/Ashley(South of Nowhere): A lot of drama, but worth it in the end.
Glinda/Elphaba(Wicked: The Musical): It's just like Rachel/Quinn! (Maybe vice-versa, since Wicked came first.)
Britta/Annie(Community): Pressed lemons.
Puck/Lauren(Glee): Awesome! Pure badassness.
Harry/Luna(Harry Potter): Fans are still screaming at J.K.R for not bringing this one about.
Claire/Elle(Heroes): They were made for each other.
Chuck/Sarah(Chuck): A very nice couple that always makes you want to root for them.
Penny/Amy(The Big Bang Theory): Weird, but the subtext is there.
Kelly/Annabelle(St. Trinian's): You can feel that connection.
Emily/Hanna(Pretty Little Liars): They'd be cute together, right?
Bo/Kenzi(Lost Girl): I can see it, even if you can't. (Besides, Kenzi is my favorite character of all time!)
Bree/Katherine(Desperate Housewives): I'm gonna write this someday.
Nina/Rachel(Alphas): It's just a fantasy.
Kaylee/Inara(Firefly): You just know Kaylee's curious about Inara...
Myka/HG(Warehouse 13): I'm digging it. :)
Faye/Cassie(The Secret Circle): Chamberlake might be fun.
Regina/Emma(Once Upon a Time): It'd be nice to have a happy ending for everyone. *Wishful thinking*
Daphne/Bay(Switched at Birth): Simply adorable.
Harmony/Sugar(Glee): Yeah, totally the Faberry/Brittana babies.
Quotes (These are all mine. I never did believe in using other peoples words):
"I see the world through a million eyes, but only two are mine."
"Love is not blind, it is we who haven't opened our eyes yet."
"Enlightenment is like going through a tunnel, you emerge into a blaze of bright light only to realize that you're still in the same world, the view is just different."
"Pigs can fly. They just fly straight down."
"I think, therefore I win."
"With 7 billion people on the planet, someone's gotta beat the odds sometimes..."
"Sometimes a wrong turn will show you the right way... Sometimes a dead end will help you keep on going... And sometimes crossing the street is the start of an adventure. So never miss an opportunity, 'cause that's all you're given. The rest you have to take."
"Love is infinite. There is no shortage of love in the world, only of people willing to express it."
"The greatest battles are within."
"Love doesn't make you fall. It makes you fly."
My ability to log in is basically hit and miss. Depends on whether or not the 'Are you human' thing pops up on my log in page. (It's there about 95% of the time, preventing me from logging in.) So you guys may wanna check out mywhenever it looks like I'm taking too long to update.
Stuff I am working on:
I Love New York-verse: This is my largest project. Canon till 'Original song' then splits off from there. The main story is 'I Love New York'(Obviously!). Faberrittana.
It also contains the 'Believe' series. Prequel to 'I Love New York'. It's a series of 12 one-shots about how Faberrittana became friends as well as the development of their underlying feelings for one another. There will be two one-shots of each pairing. PezBerry, FaBerry, Brittana, PieBerry, Quintana and Quitt. Update: I've decided to make this a baker's dozen. I have it all planned out, I just need to focus on writing.
I'm also working on the 'Agape' collection. A collection of four one-shots. It is set after 'I Love New York'. Not a proper sequel though. It focuses on each member of Faberrittana and their feelings for the other girls.
Poker-verse: This contains 'Full House'. I am also planning out side stories set in this universe. This will also be my gayest universe. Faberry. Also contains a contest! (see details below)
Picking Up the Pieces-verse: Contains my story 'Picking Up the Pieces'. Set after 'Comeback', works around 'Blame it on the Alcohol' and runs parallel to 'Sexy' and 'Original Song'. I might write a sequel. I also have the backstory of Judy/Sue planned out. Faberry.
Reaction-verse: For now it's just 'Redefining Perfection'. But I have a trilogy of prequels in the works. Faberry.
Xena: Warrior Princess: This is what I should have been writing from the start. This series is the reason I got into fan fiction in the first place. I'm low on inspiration though when it comes to classic Xena. However, I do have ubers planned out (see below).
Lost Girl: I've been planning out a multi-chaptered Bo/Kenzi fic. It just might take a while before I get to it.
Desperate Housewives: I have a Kathree fic on my backburner. It's low on my list though.
Warehouse 13: My new favorite show. The first chapter of Back from Midnight is up!
Alphas: I'm writing a Nina/Rachel fic right now. Episode 1x05 (Never let Me Go) gave me a great opening!
Original (I've decided to keep only my fan fiction stuff under the D.C. Embers penname. All of my serious compositions will go under the name James Dreire)
Blood & Magic novels (written as James Dreire): This is actually uber-Xena. It's about, Brie Penner, a sci-fi/fantasy author who discovers magic isn't all fiction and that she has powers of her own. Through some twist of fate, she finds herself studying magic under the tutelage of a vampire who practices blood magic. It's not as dark as it sounds. It's inspired by the Old World of Darkness setting from White Wolf Games. I have five novels planned out: 'Midnight Magic', 'Shifting Sands', 'Power Play', 'Wicked Warfare' and 'Darkest Dawn'. Update!: The preview for Midnight Magic is up, you can find it
Light Years/ Dark Ages series (written as Brie Penner): This is a dual-book series that follows the lives of two girls who have switched worlds. If you're wondering why I'm using another penname, it's because Brie Penner is actually the protagonist of the 'Blood Magic' novels. I thought of this series when I made Brie Penner a sci-fi/fantasy author. This will also be uber-Xena.
Light Years series
A human girl somehow gets transported all the way across the galaxy and finds herself in Atlantis, an artificial planet built around a magitech powered core, with vast cities powered by a fusion of technology and magic, all submerged underwater. (It would be awesome if I could get an artist to draw this.)
Dark Ages series
An Atlantean girl finds herself on a post-apocalyptic Earth, just after the end of a world war fought over (and by) magic-using humans known as Weavers.
Midnight Magic Contest!
I have a contest within my 'Full House' fic for my original novel! Five lucky winners will get a minor character named after them in 'Midnight Magic'! (And possibly the subsequent books.) For details, check out 'Full House'!
Update: You can find the preview for Midnight Magicand the character overviews for the contest can be found .
