Update of my podfic recs list

Hi, I'm still alive though longingly looking forward to some down- and family-time.

In celebration of the upcoming holidays and the corresponding travel time I updated my multifandom podfic rec list. For you're convenience it's in doc-format as it's rather long.

Have fun listening! :)

Greetings from Italy!

As I don´t seem to be able to get my vacation pictures uploaded in an acceptable time after I returned home, I decided on a different approach this time. I´m going to try to post my favourite pictures of the day every evening.

Pictures under the lj-cutCollapse )
Two LJ friends of mine, sl_walker and kalijean, have the biggest and most selfless hearts you can imagine.

In addition to their own two cats they not only took in an highly pregnant stray cat, which they called Reinette and which got 6 adorable kittens, they also look out for 6 other strays. These cats are of course in need of vet care, being spayed/neutered, tested for disease and treated.

So if you're interested in further information and maybe helping out with the costs, please check out the corresponding facebook group and Indiegogo campaign.

Meme: Friends!!

Shamelessly stolen from sly_hostetter and andeincascade to celebrate the official end of the school holidays here and the return of approx. 9h-workdays instead of 10-12h ones.

Comment and I will ...

1. Tell you why I friended you. If I remember.

Snowflake Challenge - Day 15

Finally the last post for akamine_chan's Snowflake Challenge:

Day 15

In your own space, share a favorite memory about fandom: the first time you got into fandom, the last time a fanwork touched your heart, crazy times with fellow fans (whether on-line or off-line), a lovely comment you’ve received or have left for someone.

Why only one?Collapse )
For akamine_chan's Snowflake Challenge:

Day 12

In your own space, rec at least three fanworks that you think would make a good intro into XYZ fandom. Rec a fandom overview, a introductory picspam, stories that define and shape the fandom.

I'll go with fanvidsCollapse )

Day 13

In your own space, share a favorite piece of original canon (a TV episode, a song, a favourite interview, a book) and explain why you love it so much.

Harper's Island Episode 11Collapse )

Day 14

In your own space, ask for help. Need a beta? Always wanted to learn how to make a vid? a fanmix? icons? Maybe you’d want to have someone cheering for you while you work on an upcoming big bang or fannish bingo?

podfic cheerleader/co-productionCollapse )

Snowflake Challenge - Day 9

For akamine_chan's Snowflake Challenge:

Day 9

In your own space, create a fanwork. A drabble, a ficlet, or an icon, art or meta or a rec list. A picspam. Something. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.

At a loss for ideas? Why not scan through the Day 7 posts and see what wishes you can fulfill? You can quick reference the Day 7 participants here and bring some joy to a fellow fan. Have fun!

I made some icons for mizface

Snowflake Challenge - Day 11

For akamine_chan's Snowflake Challenge:

Day 11

In your own space, ask for recs. Something as simple as "I like XYZ (where XYZ is a kink, a pairing, a trope, etc) - please rec me some." Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.

Remember that your rec list doesn’t have to be fic if that’s not what you’re looking for. Some of you might be yearning for good vid recs or fanart or fanmixes or meta or... well, you get the picture, right? ;)

Please rec me your favourite fics, vids, podfics, art,... about the female characters of the following fandoms:

Bones, BSG, Buffy, Doctor Who, due South, firefly, Flashpoint, Harper's Island, Leverage, Merlin, NCIS, The Sentinel, SGA, Sherlock, Smallville, Star Trek Reboot, SG-1, Supernatural, Torchwood, White Collar, Wilby Wonderful, x-files

Thank you kindly!

Snowflake Challenge - Day 10

For akamine_chan's Snowflake Challenge:

Day 10

In your own space, talk about a creator. Show us why you think they are amazing.

For years cybel has been the go-to person for podficcers, who want their recordings made into audiobooks. In no time she assembles them and creates beautiful, fitting covers. I love looking at the individually designed covers and use them to find my favourite podfics much faster than by title only.

She has created about 1600 podbooks in various fandoms to this day, whether or not she was familiar with the source, and so helped innumerable readers.

Here are some examples of her cover art:

untune the sky
for a 'due South' apocafic

Relatives & Relativity
for a 'Doctor Who' x 'Sense & Sensibility' crossover

Hand Me Down
a Bandom christmas fic

So, if you ever enjoyed one of her podbooks or covers, please leave her feedback at her Snowflake Challenge Day 1 post or one of her other innumerable podbook posts.

Snowflake Challenge - Day 7

For akamine_chan's Snowflake Challenge:

Day 7

In your own space, create a list of at least three fannish things you'd love to receive, something you've wanted but were afraid to ask for - a fannish wish-list of sorts.

* Harper Island x Supernatural Fic:

Since our rewatch of 'Harper's Island' last year I want to read a crossover between HI and SPN, which combines the story lines of Ruby (SPN) and Patricia 'Trish' Wellington (HI), both played by Katie Cassidy: What if Trish was possessed by the demon Ruby during her college time (a time she doesn't like to discuss/think about) and did all the things in SPN? What else does she hide aside her unhealthy relationship with Hunter?

* 'Valentine's Day' Fic:

For me the story of quarterback Sean Jackson and businessman Holden Wilson was one of the few interesting pairings in this film by Gary Marshall and I would like to read more about them. If someone would write/rec me their backstory or how it all panned out, I would be immensely grateful.

* 'Permission to podfic/transform' statements by pro-podfic authors:

It would be awesome, if pro-podfic authors would post a corresponding statement to their journal profile, fic master post, website or archive profile. Various examples, how such a declaration could be phrased, can be found here.

Snowflake Challenge - Day 6

For akamine_chan's Snowflake Challenge:

Day 6

In your own space, rec at least 3 fanworks you thought you wouldn't like (because they weren't your fandom or they pushed against your boundaries or you thought you just wouldn't be interested) and that you ended up loving.

1.) Pairing/Genre - Femslash:

The Universal Language
Author: srin
Reader: sophinisba
Fandom: Merlin (BBC)
Pairing/Characters: Gwen/Morgana, Morgana/OFCs, Gwen/Merlin
Rating: NC-17
Warnings: Non-graphic reference to gay-bashing of an OC, non-graphic references to other violence. (The rating is for sexual content, not violence.)
Length: ~14,300 words / 1h:35min:29sec

Summary: In which Morgana remembers her history, and seeks some manner of reconciliation with her present. (Modern reincarnation.)

I love strong female characters, but I'm normally not interested in femslash and would probably never have read srin's story on my own. That's why I was hesitating a long time before I downloaded sophinisba's wonderfully read podfic.

2.) Kink - Noncon/dubcon:

A Thorough Examination/In Depth
Author: emungere
Reader: crinklysolution
Fandom: Sherlock (BBC)
Pairing/Characters: Sherlock/John
Rating: NC-17
Warnings: Noncon, dubcon, psychological manipulation, thoughts and discussion of suicide. Medical fetish, sounding, e-stim, use of a gun during sex. Dark.
Length: ~17,000 words / 1h:55min:28sec

Summary: Written for the prompt - Sherlock/Dark!John. Medical fetish.

Noncon/Dubcon is one of my few squicks, which makes me skip even stories of my favourite authors. Podfics are a little different though, as they are in my eyes recommendations by the readers. I trust several podficers, crinklysolution included, not to record something, that stretches my bounderies too much.

And yes, it's dark and twisted, but also sexy as hell and it works for these versions of John and Sherlock.

3.) Fandom - Moonlight:

"You Spin Me" vid
Vidder: keerawa
Fandom: Moonlight
Pairing/Characters: Mick St. John and Beth
Rating & Warnings: R for blatant heterosexuality and canonical creepy vampire pedophiliac stalkeriness.
Song: "You Spin Me Round (Like A Record)", by the Dope
Length: 2:49 min

Summary: Mick has his little infatuation with Beth completely under control.

My first and only thought about 'Moonlight' was for a long time: "Not another tv show about a vampire with a conscience working as a PI!"

Then keerawa made a vid and wrote in her post:
The Show: Did anyone even see 'Moonlight' before it was cancelled? Mick St. John is a vampire living as a PI in LA. (Déjà vu, anyone?) He has a Thing for Beth, and has since he rescued her from another vampire at the tender age of five. I'm serious. And this was on network TV. Apparently, Beth's into that kind of thing, and just wants him to get over his commitment issues.

I read that, watched the video several times in a row and ended up buying the DVDs.

Snowflake Challenge - Day 5

For akamine_chan's Snowflake Challenge:

Day 5

In your own space, share something non-fannish you are passionate about with your fannish friends. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.

MuseumsCollapse )

Snowflake Challenge - Day 2

For akamine_chan's Snowflake Challenge:

Day 2

In your own space, post a rec for at least three fanworks that you did not create. Drop a link to your post in the comments. See if you can rec fanworks that are less likely to be praised: tiny fandoms, rare pairings, fanworks other than stories, lesser known kinks or tropes. Find fanworks that have few to no comments, or creators new to a particular fandom and maybe aren't well known or appreciated. Appreciate them.

My recs today are some of my favourite gen, asexual, female-centric and crossover podficsCollapse )

Snowflake Challenge - Day 1: Self-recs

Currently akamine_chan is running the Snowflake Challenge and of course she chose the hardest possible theme for the first day:

In your own space, post a rec for at least three fanworks that you have created. It can be your favorite fanworks that you've created, or fanworks you feel no one ever saw, or fanworks you say would define you as a creator. Drop a link to your post in the comments.

* Podfic: Goodnight Moon (Joan of Arcadia x Day After Tomorrow fusion, gen, 34min)

This was my second podfic ever and is still very close to my heart. I cried while recording parts of it and it is a good example of my way to convey the characters' emotions.

* Audio trailer: untune the sky (due South, Fraser/Kowalski, NC-17, 10:47min)

This teaser was created as art for akamine_chan's apocalyptic AU story "untune the sky" during the DS C6D Big Bang 2009. It was a lot of fun to select and arrange text passages from the story and interweave them with music, the author was inspired by. The wonderful dodificus lent me her voice for this project.

* Art/Photography: A Quiet Evening at Home (due South, Fraser/Kowalski, G)

Another DS C6D Big Bang piece, this time it was for the 2010 challenge. A scene in luzula's "The Work of Coming Home" inspired me. I'm a very visual person, so I recreated the mentioned letter and I arranged things found in my appartment for this photo to visualize the images in my head.

Namaste from Delhi

Somehow this year went by fast (again) and I`m finally/already on vacation in India for three weeks.

After my plane landed in Delhi today, I went for a first excursion into the Old Town with it's temples, forts and bazaars. I'm still processing.

So my question is: Who would like a postcard?

If you would like to get one and I don't already have your mailing address, just PM it to me. :)

More Joy Day Part 2: Podficlet recordings

It's More Joy Day and I'm offering for the first 5 people who comment a podficlet of up to 2000 words: Whatever fandom, whatever pairing (excluding parent/child incest and underage/adult).

Please, make my day by making you smile! :)

P.S. There are also some DVDs, CDs and Books for Free.
In honor of More Joy Day I'm offering the following things for free to fellow fangirls/boys:

List of DVDs, CDs and books up for grabsCollapse )

If you're interested in one or more item please leave a comment with the title(s). The 'first come, first served' principle applies of course. :)

Happy More Joy Day!

Original Podfic: Call For Change mp3-version, Call For Change audiobook by lunate8

My Podfic: Mediafire, audio archive

Notes: Recorded for this year's multipodicity challenge. When trinityofone posted this story back in 2008, I added "Call for Change" to my "want-to-podfic"-list. Then lunate8 released her podfic and I didn't want to intrude. Therefore I thought this story was the perfect choice for this remix. :)
