Dear podficcer

A quick note to the lovely person who will be making something for me for the Informal Twitter Podfic Exchange (#itpe): Thank you for doing this! I like all kinds of stories and podfics so I hesitated to write anything, since I don't really have much to say beyond what I put in my signup tweet, but anyway since everybody's doing it...

If you're doing Merlin I would generally prefer to listen to femslash, het, or female-focused gen (lady as protagonist or desired or desirer, not a lady's perspective on Arthur/Merlin, pls). Gwen, Merlin, Freya, and Hunith are favorite characters. I am watching new episodes so if you want to make something super new and spoilery that's great too.

With Community or Parks and Rec you can just go wild. Um, I guess I don't want a story about Pierce being an jerk but I don't think people really write those anyway. I think both these shows are so much fun to podfic, with their wonderful character voices. I like canon ships like Ben/Leslie and April/Andy and I like Troy/Abed and Troy/Abed/Annie and other pairings and friendship and team bonding stuff. Just avoid anything that's mean to characters and it should be awesome.

I like feelings and people being good to each other. I often enjoy stories about queer people and trans people and kinky people, whether or not there is sex in them. Straight cis vanilla people are also lovely! I like established couples trying new things. In porn some of my favorite things are submission, name calling, and spanking. Please stay away from electricity play or situations resembling interrogation of prisoners.

I like very short podfics and longer ones. I like podfics with or without music and sound effects. I like all kinds of accents. I hope you have fun! Thanks again,

-Sophie
