 I just got back from a trip to Peru (which is AMAZING, omg, I recommend this country to everyone ever who likes history, nature, food, street markets, or people), and found that the lovely [personal profile] anatsuno had recorded a podfic of one of my favorite of my SGA stories!



Title: Battle Potato
Reader: [personal profile] anatsuno 
Summary: The thing was, John had never been good at patient, and Teyla looked like okay was a couple of galaxies over from wherever she was now.
Notes: SGA, team, gen. Text here
Length: 40 mn, 19MB mp3.

Download (and leave her feedback!) here. 


Receiving the news of that podfic reminded me that I've been completely remiss in linking to another one posted a while back, by the fantastic [personal profile] fishpatrol . 


Title: I Lie, I Cheat, I Steal (And I Just Don't Get Any Respect)
Reader: [personal profile] fishpatrol 
Summary: "All right," Nate says, and smacks his hands together. "Let's go steal a con artist."
Notes: White Collar/Leverage crossover, team, as gen as either canon. Text here.
Length: 39 mn, 35MB mp3.

This is a good time to say again that I give blanket permission to record my stories -- I adore podfic, and if you feel moved to share your reading of it with others, I would love to hear it. Please drop me a comment so I can spread the word!

Podfic Is Love



I really just want to signal-boost this, because I love podfic. If you do, please go give the readers some love, because they are amazing and deserve it. (FYI that the DW version has different artists signing up, so remember to check both!) Also, for those who don't listen to podfic often or widely, here's an idea: go read the love threads as a way to find new podfic artists to check out at the Audiofic Archive!

My thread, should you want to find it, is here.


And to all you podficcers out there: I love you all. I have never felt closer to you all or more grateful to be in fandom than when I click on my iPod and you start murmuring to me over my headphones, telling me all your favorite stories. You've gotten me through hard days, made me burst out laughing or flush red in public places, made me linger over household chores, and filled my days with countless hours of gratitude and delight. Thank you all so much.

Title: Maryland
Author: Astolat
Details: House, M.D., House/Wilson, adult.
Summary: What's so great about Maryland?
Notes: Recorded over the summer while bored and recovering from a minor injury, but I forgot to post it after I finished. (Concussions can do that to you, I guess.) It's been recorded by Twilight_Angel previously -- if you've never listened to her readings, I highly recommend them. She's tackled a lot of my favorite stories by Astolat, and this particular fic really works beautifully from her slow, easy, sardonic style. Also, in the interests of full disclosure, I admit to having scanned through episodes for scenes with Chase and parroting his lines back to him; if I could go back now, I'd reallocate some of that time and effort to Foreman.

So I've only been meaning to do this since summer. Between then and now, there were platform changes, technical mishaps, a really loud heating system, and also that whole school thing, but: it is now done!


Title: Harmonic Function:
Author: [livejournal.com profile] shaenie
Reader: [livejournal.com profile] fiercelydreamed
Summary: "Let's go with Banach-Tarski as your safeword," McKay says almost absently, lips tracing lazily along John's hairline, and John blinks. // "You want to go with a Euclidean geometric paradox for my safeword?" he asks, bemused. SGA (pre-series), McKay/Sheppard, NC-17. Text here.
Length: 1:01:09, ~81 mb.
Notes: To quote [livejournal.com profile] shaenie's original story post, Kink, Kink, OMG THERE IS SOME KINK HERE! Seriously, though. This is fairly intense s/D, BDSM. Also, unsafe sex, if that bugs you. Do keep in mind that this is fiction, and you're a moron not to use protection in reality. Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] wintercreek and [livejournal.com profile] cindyjade for offering me their ears (bonus thanks to M. for solving last-minute technical difficulties and creating the podbook version), and to [livejournal.com profile] shaenie for all the obvious reasons.

I'm chagrined that it took me this long to link to this here, given how totally cool I found it, but I feel sure it's 100% as awesome as when I initially downloaded it!


Title: The Convocation
Readers: [livejournal.com profile] indy_go and [livejournal.com profile] wintercreek
Summary: The idea was so startling that Rodney actually shut the laptop and pushed it aside. "You're serious," he said to Teyla. "Someone in the Pegasus Galaxy is hosting a scientific conference?"
Notes: SGA, McKay/Sheppard, adult. Text here.
Length: 22:45, 21 MB mp3 or 11 MB m4a.

This just made my day when they surprised me with it, and I think it's probably one of my favorite podfics. As you all know, I get huge geek glee out of the collaborative creativity in fandom, so the trajectory of this story delights me and of itself -- [livejournal.com profile] halcyon_shift orchestrated the Sweet Charity auction, [livejournal.com profile] amberlynne bought me and gave me all the ingredients in her prompt, I wrote it, [livejournal.com profile] wintercreek tossed [livejournal.com profile] indy_go the idea of doing a tandem recording, they commit the text to voice and take on different aspects of the mixing, [livejournal.com profile] wintercreek posts it, [livejournal.com profile] general_jinjur adds it to the Audiofic Archive ... seriously, just how cool is that? And then I absolutely love the effect that [livejournal.com profile] wintercreek and [livejournal.com profile] indy_go get by juxtaposing their readings, the way that it really literalizes the two distinct narratives of past and present and heightens the contradiction between the different truths they suggest. (Also, they picked a song I never would've thought of that just nails the fic dead on.)

Go listen, it's a thing of joy.

Look what just went live this evening!

Title: Rebuilding Babel
Reader: [livejournal.com profile] wintercreek
Summary: He wondered if this was how it felt to go crazy -- you didn't lose your mind, it just stopped synching up with the world around you. The Pegasus galaxy makes Rodney an expert in what he can survive without.

I had the pleasure of listening to the beta version and really enjoyed it. Cut in case anyone hasn't read the story and doesn't want to be spoiled. )


Just a note for those of you who had also expressed interest in recording this story (or had started to do so). )

It's November, it's rainy and/or cold in many places right now, lots of you are sick, I just had midterms ... I think it's time for something completely unserious. In the words of the author: "Cheer up, the internet!"


Title: Torture: Most Bizarre and Terrible
Author: [livejournal.com profile] thingswithwings
Reader: [livejournal.com profile] fiercelydreamed
Summary: "So, this is ... intimate." SGA, gen, teamfic. Text here.
Format: mp3.
Length: 6:00, 8.3 mb.
Reader's notes: As per her notes when she posted this, [livejournal.com profile] thingswithwings would like you to know this is a HUGGING story. As per my notes as I post this, I would like you to know I am solely responsible for any laughably inappropriate music or silly voices contained within.

So this isn't actually the big podfic project I kept alluding to, but I needed an intermediate project to get used to the mechanics of recording now that I've switched both platforms and programs (and to break myself of overthinking things). Also, this gave me an excuse to go a close re-read of this story as I work on the sequel. :)

It was really a pleasure to record this; it's one of my favorites of all the stories I've written, and I've also been well-trained over the last ten years to love reading aloud to people. It's my first substantive podfic project, so feedback is most welcome.


Title: Who's Left and Who's Leaving
Reader: me ([livejournal.com profile] fiercelydreamed)
Summary: "No names," Rodney tells them, one more time. "And no dates -- I'm serious about that. No one can know what anyone else is planning." John learns the structures of life and death.
Notes: SGA, gen, written for the [livejournal.com profile] sga_flashfic Ways to Die challenge. Text here.
Format: mp3.
Length 58:37, 81 mb.

So, for those of you who haven't been tuned in to her station lately, my perennial partner-in-crime [livejournal.com profile] shaenie has been remarkably busy lately. In the last two weeks alone, she posted three or four (depending on how you count) stories in two fandom, each of which brings entirely different flavors of hot and sweet, along with cutting her teeth on podficcing a PWP I wrote for her.

And of course, because she's insane an over-achiever remarkably focused when she gets into a groove, she decided that the best thing to do? Was commit more podfic. Notice how I'm not complaining.


Title: Cool Hand Luke
Reader: [livejournal.com profile] shaenie
Summary: In the dark space of his quarters, John skims the palm of his metal hand down the bare skin of Rodney's chest, and closes his eyes to watch the lightning tracery of voltage surging up Rodney's afferent nerves, a reverse shadow that flares through his body in the wake of John's touch.
Notes: SGA, McKay/Sheppard, explicit. Text is here.

The way she reads this is how it sounds in my head, which makes in indescribably cool for me to experience as a listener.

So I get home last night from an evening of geeky TV with my favorite male fangirl, and when I log on to IM, [livejournal.com profile] shaenie tells me, "Hey, I made you something, hang on while I upload it." Turns out that because she loves me and she'd had a hankering to try podficcing, she'd decided to cut her teeth on this. All I can say is: baby, you can practice on me anytime you like, and as soon as I hit summer and get set up for it, I am learning how to speak math so I can return the favor.

I recommend finding a quiet place and a spare pair of underwear while you wait for this to download.

Title: Lucid
Reader: [livejournal.com profile] shaenie
Summary: Can you make it until 3 a.m.? he'd asked. I should be able to figure something out by then.
