[THIS IS NOT CURRENTLY UP TO DATE! CHECK MY AO3 PAGE FOR MISSING PODFICS.]

This journal is just for posting podfic, so friend at will! No need for a comment, although of course I’m happy if you say hi. :) I may post other podfic related things, but nothing RL, since that’s all in my main journal.

Links here lead to my individual entries, which will include Megaupload links for each podfic. You can also find a (hopefully!) full listing of my work at my page on the Audiofic archive.

It’s lovely if you comment on my podfic, but even lovelier if you also thank the author! Links to the text versions are included in each post.

There is a list kept of all the authors who have given blanket permission for podfic, it can be found here on the fanlore. Blanket permission is awesome! (I did a podcast about it once, which can be heard here.)

Dear Podficcer!

First of all, thank you! This is completely awesome. :D Thank you for your time, and your enthusiasm and for liking fandoms that I like!

I think (I hope!) I’m pretty easy to please. I’ve written my favourite pairings next to the fandoms below, but I would also listen to other pairings, or to gen. As you can see from my list, I’m not really an OTPer. And I’m always happy with poly pairings, threesomes or moresomes, etc! Also crossovers are awesome. :D

1D (ANYONE WITH ANYONE(S)! :))
1D/Radio1 (Nick/Harry, Nick/Louis)Avengers movie-verse (Steve/Tony)
Agent Carter (Peggy/Angie)
AI8 (Kradam, Adam/Kris/Katy)
Bandom (Panic, MCR, FOB, The Like – super flexible on pairings, love gsf too)
Check Please (Bitty/Jack)
Gilmore Girls (Rory/Jess, Rory/Paris)
Gordon Korman (Bruno/Boots, Cathy/Diane)
Gossip Girl (Blair/Serena, Blair/Dan)
Harry Potter (Harry/Draco, Remus/Sirius)
High School Musical (Ryan/Chad)
Leverage - Parker/Hardison/Eliot
Teen Wolf (Derek/Stiles)
Veronica Mars (Veronica/Mac)
Vorkosigan (canon pairings, gen)

Um, as for types of fic? Mostly as long as it has a happy ending I’m good. I’d rather at least a bit of plot rather than just pwp, but nothing wrong with some nice porn to round it off!

Things I like:
Funny fic! I love love love sarcastic banter.
I’m a sucker for any kind of AU at all, but especially HS or University ones.
I’m pretty easy on kink but probably what I read the most are ones with d/s themes.
Nice fluffy romantic fic (For instance I love all the Harlequin rewrite AUs.)
Faily boys in love (see: all of bandom and 1D)
Pretend bf/gf or wake up married
Always a girl! or genderswap
Selfcest
Coming out stories
Friends hanging out and being awesome

Things I don’t like:
I’m not huge on creature fic – vampires, werewolves, zombies – although I do love magic and fantasy.
Incest
Major character death
Non-con
Torture/pain related things

Sorry for randomness of this letter. You can probably get a better idea of what I like just by looking at what I’ve podficced before. But really make me anything! I’m sure I’ll enjoy it. (I also apologise for using my old letter and just editing...but I still like/don't like most of the same things...)

Much love

The awesome art for my podfic for Bandom Big Bang 2012!



Thank you to [livejournal.com profile] aneas for her awesome cover art! She stepped up at the last minute, and did an incredible job. I love the dual images, and especially the picture she chose of Brendon, he just looks so angsty. Also how perfect is that house, seriously?!

Singer:[livejournal.com profile] pennyplainknits

Cover Artist: [livejournal.com profile] aneas
Fandom: Bandom, Panic! At the Disco
Pairing: Brendon/Spencer, Jon/Ryan
Rating: NC-17
Runtime: 02:17:13
Song Credit: Beach Bones, More Amor ft Ryan Ross
Summary: Ghost!Brendon AU. Brendon died five years ago and haunts a rundown house on the outskirts of Chicago. Ryan moves in with him! Brendon has a crush on Spencer, but won't let Ryan tell Spencer that Brendon exists, in case Spencer's creeped out by him. Ryan and Jon and Spencer start a band. Meanwhile Brendon helps Ryan write songs when the others aren’t around, since they don't know he exists, but he's frustrated that he can't join in for the rest of it. Sad, awkward ghost love with a happy ending and some fuzzy cuteness along the way. Guest starring Gerard, Mikey and Gabe.

Reader’s Notes: This is my Bandom Big Bang for 2012. This fic was top of my list as soon as they announced the podfic part of BBB, so I was really excited that I managed to claim it. It's a lovely combination of sweet, funny and bizarre, which works perfectly for me. I also really love that in addition to the romantic relationships we get a really great friendship blooming between Brendon and Ryan.

Thank you to [livejournal.com profile] aneas for her awesome cover art! I love the dual images, and especially the picture she chose of Brendon, he just looks so angsty. Also how perfect is that house, seriously?!

Betaed by [livejournal.com profile] lorelaisquared, who is not "in" bandom but still lets me drag her to the edge occasionally! Thanks so much bb - above & beyond. <3

Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] pennyplainknits, who offered her singing voice when I complained about how terrible mine was. Ryan and Brendon would not sound nearly as lovely without her help. :)

And also to [livejournal.com profile] frankie_ann, who was incredibly patient while I asked her weird picky questions about word usage!

This also fills a square on my podfic_bingo: angst.

Reader’s Notes: This is my podfic big bang for 2012 and I swear it almost didn't get done! In the time close to the deadline I was flathunting, moving, going on holiday to Morocco, and in the middle of the biggest tax deadline of the year at work. This kept getting pushed and pushed until finally I had to make time. And then I didn't have internet in my new flat to upload it! It was only thanks to many patient friends that I managed to get it up. But here it is...
I love this story and was so excited to podfic it! It was one of those stories that as you are reading it for the first time you're already hearing it in your own voice in your head, and you know you want to record it. My heart just aches for Spencer - he's so well meaning and self sacrificing, and yet he doesn't need to be! And her Brendon is adorable and lovable, so easy with his affections and so obviously confused by Spencer's reactions. But of course all is well in the end... :)
Thank you to [livejournal.com profile] reena_jenkins for her lovely cover art! She actually gave me three options, and I had a terrible time choosing which one I liked best, because they were all great. In the end I chose this one because of the melancholy feel of it - I really think it captures Spencer's mood perfectly - plus they both look beautiful on it! :)

This also fills a square on my podfic_bingo: gossip.

Pairing: Brendon/Spencer
Rating: PG-13
Runtime: 05:40:19
Summary: Spencer had barely even heard of rugby when he tried out for the team. It was just a way of killing time until Ryan was done with his stupid school magazine. Helping Ryan sift through the lame emo poetry submissions was only funny the first few times. But their west-coast prep school doesn't play soccer or football, so the rugby team turns out to be the coolest thing around, and suddenly Spencer's the school's most popular player. Then Spencer meets Brendon, and everything changes.
High school rugby AU.

Betaed by [livejournal.com profile] greedy_dancer, whose high standards of podfic I never quite manage to live up to, but will always keep trying. :) Thanks for all the time you put in, and for listening to my constant whining!

This is by far the longest podfic I have ever attempted and it was definitely a mountain to climb. I'm not quite sure why I decided to jump from 30 minute projects to an almost 6 hour one with nothing in between, but the final product was worth the time.

This is one of my favourite fics of all time, seeing as it combines my favourite genre (HS AU) with my favourite people (Brendon, Spencer, & Spencer's sarcastic mom)! I love Mog's sense of humour, and her ability to draw such a wide range of emotions for these silly teenage boys. This story is both hilarious and touching at the same time, and that's all her. <3

This also fills two squares on my podfic_bingo: 2+ Hours Long & Read A Friend's Fic.

These podfics were all part of a project for [livejournal.com profile] halfamoon (a fourteen day challenge celebrating female characters in fandom). I took part in this anthology last year too, and it was actually the first podficcing I had ever done, so I was excited to participate again and thus kind of mark that milestone. Plus, the turnout this year was phenomenal! So many more podficcers. :)

The anthology contains 104 stories, from 64 fandoms, performed by 47 readers. I was really short on time, and my flatmate [livejournal.com profile] lorelaisquared and I were visiting my parents for the weekend, so I thought I wasn't going to be able to participate. Then she mentioned she had a few drabbles that might work for it, and suddenly we were off! The result is two short but lovely Downton Abbey fics that were quite fun to record. Each of them were originally written as gifts for our friend [livejournal.com profile] ladyvivien, so I hope she enjoys her bonus podfics!

For day two of [livejournal.com profile] pod_aware I took part in the podcast, which was about blanket permission. It was great fun to actually get to chat about podfic in person (well, over Skype anyway!) and to meet new people. Yay!

Anyway, if you'd like to listen that, stream it here.

Blanket permission is a way for fan artists to let other fans know their comfort with others playing with their works. It's particularly helpful to podficcers when authors give blanket permission for anyone to podfic their works without having to ask first. To find out more on blanket permission with regards to podfic check out [livejournal.com profile] pod_aware on LJ or DW.

In honor of [livejournal.com profile] pod_aware, the one thing I did manage to do, which is the Podficcer Meme that was floating around a month or so ago. I saved it at some point, meaning to do it, so here you go...

When did you first start podficcing?
Um, I’m pretty new! I did my first podfics for the Awesome Ladies Challenge, back in February or March 2011.

What would you say was your inspiration or motivation to start doing it?
Because I don’t really write fanfic or do graphics, I’ve always kind of felt like I wasn’t contributing much to the fannish community. (Yes, I know feedback and cheerleading is important, but it’s not the same thing, you know?) The only concrete thing I ever did was the Gilmore Girls Virtual Seasons, and that in kind of an organizing capacity. However, I love to read aloud. So when I became aware of podficcing a year or so ago, I thought it sounded perfect, I was just a bit unsure how to jump in. It took an actual challenge community (and one that was small enough not to be intimidating) in order for me to start asking and getting advice on how to proceed.

What fandoms have you podficced created podfic in?
Bandom, American Idol, Gilmore Girls, Gossip Girl, Parenthood, Daria, Greek (It sounds like more than it is, because a lot of those were small!)

What was your favourite podfic to make or do?
I think my favourite so far was Indoor Fireworks because I just loved the story so much. I read it and immediately wanted to podfic it.

Where do you draw your inspiration from for podfic?
From the fun I get out of its creation. Podfic is perfect for me, because it combines the joy I get from reading aloud, with editing which I also love. I did video editing at University (TV production major), so sound editing is a whole new avenue that has been fun to explore.

What was your least favourite podfic to make or do?
I don’t really have one at the moment. Most of my projects have been pretty short, so I haven’t had one that really drove me wild.

Which podfic are you most proud of?
The American Idol Kradam one Close My Eyes and Taste You on My Lips because of the cool collaborative process involved. I really felt like the fact that I was able to offer suggestions before the story posted really made the podfic better. Also, I recorded several draft versions as she did drafts of the story, so I knew it back to front by the time I actually recorded the final one.

What's the best feedback or comment you've ever gotten?
I think any feedback at all makes me happy, even if it’s just a quick thank you! Sadly, all of my feedback is on my main journal right now, because I only just moved these over to a podfic one. It made me sad to have to make new entries that would be all blank.

What's your opinion on music in podfic?
I think it’s really cool, although I haven’t tried it myself yet. I’m a little scared of how exactly to go about it, from choosing the music and deciding how to use it, etc, it seems a bit intimidating!

Favourite genre to podfic to (comedy, angst, romance, drama, AU)?
I’m definitely drawn to funny fics with good dialogue. I’m kind of sarcastic myself, so I always enjoy reading people who are as well. Also I have read some gen pieces, but I think just by the nature of fanfic, most things tend to be romance. Mostly I podfic what I read, so if I really enjoy a fic, my first impulse is to want to record it. My list of “I wish I could podfic this” fics is HUGE, and I’m slow, so I’ll probably never make it through!

Favourite fandom(s) and/or pairing(s) to podfic in?
Well, again I podfic whatever I read, so at the moment probably mostly bandom. :)

What just drives you up the wall when it comes to podfic?
Nothing yet. I’m sure it will happen though! Right now I’m just really enjoying the community of it all.

What’s your podfic recording set up like?
I have my MacbookPro, with Garage Band, and my mic is a Blue Snowball. (I'm sure it's a bit silly to have, but I got it when I was in the USA for such a great price that I couldn't resist!) I have a tendency to record very late at night because I have four housemates and our house is loud. Plus if you do it after midnight you don’t have to worry about the mic catching the rumblings of the tube! Depending on who is awake I either record in my room or in the small office we all share downstairs. I’ve only done small projects so far, so I’ve done all the recording in one sitting and then edited afterwards. When I do longer ones I’m sure I’ll end up putting in breaks. I usually try to record all do-overs within that recording, so if I mess up, I just re-do it immediately several times, and then edit out the ones I like the least. I use a clapping system, so if I screw up I immediately clap and then keeping going with a correction – that way you can see a tall spike on the audio track and it’s easier to edit.

What is your latest project or idea for your next podfic (if your muse isn't dead)?
I’ve been working on a few of [livejournal.com profile] sunsetmog’s fics for a long time. And when I say “working on” I mean I recorded them ages ago and then haven’t gone back to actually edit. So I really need to get my act together and finish that!

Finally, what kind of words of wisdom would you offer someone who wants to podfic/is a newbie?
Go for it! The podfic community is awesome and welcoming, and there are plenty of people who will offer advice and answer questions.


Podfic: it's an audio recording of a fanfic, like an audiobook, how awesome is that? Fans from all over put their voices out there so you can enjoy fanfic on the go or just in a different way. To find out more about podfic, why we do it and how to get started, check out [livejournal.com profile] pod_aware on LJ or DW.

Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] paraka for hosting all my podfic!

Reader’s Notes: This was for the Bandom Pretend Dating Festival that [livejournal.com profile] pennyplainknits ran a while ago. This is my first MCR podfic, and I think the characterisations could use some work, but it was fun to try them out! (Also, I'm at my parents so I don't have my usual mic - I just used the in computer one instead. It sounds alright but not as good as I would like it to, sorry!)

It's a lovely, adorable story. <3 (Originally posted at my regular journal here)

Reader’s Notes: This was SUCH a fun, inspiring project to work on. Their idea was to link authors and podficcers up before the writing process started, so that the entire thing would be a collaboration. That way, people could experiment with styles and what was best to read aloud and authors could see how their words sounded with plenty of time to make changes based on the audio version as well. I think it was a great idea, and it's also gotten me fired up about doing more podficcing, so let's hope the enthusiasm stays.

Plus, if you want to go tell Sam how awesome she it (best partner ever, seriously!) click on the story link above for her post about it all.

Reader’s Notes: This was a collaborative effort between author and podficcer. Such a cool challenge community and really interesting to see the story develop as we worked together on both components. (It was originally posted at the community journal here and it’s also on AO3 here.

These podfics were all part of a project for [livejournal.com profile] halfamoon (a fourteen day challenge celebrating female characters in fandom). We were using fics from The Awesome Ladies Ficathon. It's comment fic, so all the podfics are pretty short. The anthology contains 73 stories, from 41 fandoms, performed by 19 readers.

I ended up reading six fics: 2 Gilmore Girls (1 Literati, 1 about Lane!), 2 Gossip Girl (1 Blair/Serena, 1 about Nelly Yuki), 1 Daria and 1 Parenthood (about the Amber/Haddie cousin relationship). I love all the fics I read, and I can immediately think of people on my flist who will like various ones of them, so go check them out!



You can download everyone's podfic from the entire project (in various forms) here!!
