DS Snippets Rec List with Bonus Material

Time and again I'm awed what a snippet writer can create in spite of a 300 word limit.

So when ds_snippets held a rec-a-thon, I took the opportunity to reread old favourites, discover new ones and record some podfics, when the author had already given the permission. Because akamine_chan is right, there should be more snippet-y podfics! :)

If you don't want to download every podfic individual, there's a zip-folder containing all availabe.

But on with the recs:

Author's LJ: eledhwenlin
Fandom/Pairing: Wilby Wonderful, Duck
Link to story: Invisible
Why I love this snippet: It's a painfully realistic description of Duck's pre-movie situation and self-image/self-knowledge.
Podfic: at Mediafire

Author's LJ: keerawa
Fandom/Pairing: Due South; Fraser/Kowalski
Link to story: Inescapable Realities
Why I love this snippet: keerawa broke my heart with a few, subtle words.
Podfic: at Mediafire

Author's LJ: hyperfocused
Fandom/Pairing: Due South, Fraser/Ray K
Link to story: Duet for One
Why I love this snippet: Not only is Fraser's lusting for the here dancing Ray steaming hot, but hyperfocused also summarizes Ray's and Fraser's different approaches to music in an intruiging, poetic format.

Author's LJ: akamine_chan
Fandom/Pairing: Flashpoint, Kevin "Wordy" Wordsmith
Link to story: Ticking Off The Minutes
Why I love this snippet: It's a spot on characterisation of Wordy and how he works under pressure.
Podfic: at Mediafire

Author's LJ: luzula
Fandom/Pairing: Fraser, Kowalski, Barbara Kowalski
Link to story: Rain
Why I love this snippet: luzula draws such vivid images of the desert, which work one more than one level.
Podfic: at Mediafire

Author's LJ: sionnain
Fandom/Pairing: Due South, Kowalski/Vecchio
Link to story: Toast(ed)
Why I love this snippet: It's the small, mundane actions that show you it's love. Also, RayK toasting to the turtle is just adorkable!
Podfic: at Mediafire

Now some extra recs where someone else was faster:

Author's LJ: belmanoir
Fandom/Pairing: Due South, Kowalski/Vecchio
Link to story: Anyone Perfect Must Be Lying
Why I love this snippet: The insightful descriptions of Fraser's larger-than-life persona/perfection and Vecchio's down-to-earth, flawed humanity. Knowing Fraser puts everything in a new context.
Podfic: at Mediafire

Author's LJ: malnpudl
Fandom/Pairing: Due South, Kowalski
Link to story: Bent
Why I love this snippet: It's at the same time sizzling hot and heartbreaking painful how RayK's struggeling with his attraction.
Podfic: at Mediafire

Author's LJ: caersmane
Fandom/Pairing: Kingdom Hospital, Earl Candleton
Link to story: Title: Yeah, right, me? Title something?
Why I love this snippet: caersmane creates this unreal, slightly paranoid atmosphere and plays virtuous with your expectations.
Podfic: at Mediafire

P.S. I hope I didn't butcher too many writer names. But please let me know if I did!

Oh, I can't wait to listen to these! Would it be alright with you if I mirrored 'Inescapable Realities' on my website?

My pleasure! I'm watching Flashpoint S1 in the moment and now have a softspot for Wordy after "Asking for Flowers".

Your welcome!

I finally got around to listening to this, and it was so fascinating hearing my snippet in your voice! I don't think anyone else has ever recorded any of my fic, so thank you. I'm flattered. : )
