Podmeta: "AUs and Kink" by toft

Title: AUs and Kink
Author: [personal profile] toft
Reader: [personal profile] sophinisba
Fandom/genre: General fandom writing-focused meta
Summary: "But the AU can be a particularly powerful and interesting tool for exploring kink, for a number of reasons. I'm going to give several examples of this below, in the hope that more people will think about putting AUs into their kink and kink into their AUs. I'm going to talk specifically about AUs that might be useful for kink bingo - that is, ways to use worldbuilding to kinky purpose."
Reader's notes: [personal profile] toft wrote this as a ramp-up post for the latest round of [community profile] kink_bingo back in June and it was awesome, and I thought right away that it would be neat to read out loud, but it took me a couple months to get around to asking the author about making a few adjustments to the text for an audio version (mainly replacing "/" with "and" or "or" but a few other little things too) and then a few more weeks to actually make it. I had a harder time getting the words out than I generally do with podfic, so the raw recording was more than twice as long as the finished product and the editing took a long time considering there's nothing very fancy in it. (This is not really surprising and certainly doesn't mean there's anything wrong with Toft's writing. In podfic I usually get tripped up a lot during the early parts where there's a lot of exposition and/or dialogue. Once the porn starts it's usually poetic and lovely and smooth sailing unless there are sex noises.)
Anyway, there are parts of this reading that I like a lot, and if you haven't read the essay I encourage you to check out either the text or audio version.
I am using this for the wildcard on my [community profile] kink_bingo card, and will claim it for the new "spaces scenes and settings" kink when I post at the comm.
