Okay, so I participated in the Awesome Ladies Podfic Anthology II and it was (and continues to be) awesome!

Those links go to the post on [livejournal.com profile] halfamoon, where you can see the list of readers and download a podbook or a zip file or browse by fandom and download individual MP3s. The total running time is over 7 and a half hours and there are 47 readers and 86 authors in 64 fandoms. Some of these readers are brand new to podfic and I believe this is the first podfic that's been made in some of the fandoms. I have been listening on my way to and from and around work and it's really a wonderful experience, to hear so many different voices and ways of reading. A lot of the fandoms are unfamiliar to me and some of the readers are people that I know on Twitter or whose names I've seen around, but I've never listened to them read before because I'm not into their regular fandoms. I love that there are pieces about motherhood and fighting and having sex and saving the world and all kinds of other things women do. It is making me very happy. [personal profile] fire_juggler has a really nice post about it and how listening to an anthology is different from listening to a long podfic.

I contributed seven pieces in seven different fandoms, several of which were new to me! They are each between 1 and 10 minutes long.

seven short podfics: Avatar, Doctor Who, Merlin, Northern Exposure, Pan's Labyrinth, Torchwood, X-Men )

Another awesome thing that happened was that [personal profile] fitz_y made a podfic of I Ache Myself for More a piece of Gwen/Morgana noncon that I wrote last year. I believe it's the only noncon piece among the 104 podlets in the anthology and both [personal profile] fitz_y and I feel a bit self-conscious about that, but, well, Guinevere is still awesome even when bad things are happening to her. I loved hearing Fitzy read this as well as a very porny Gwen/Morgana fic of her own, and there are several other Merlin podfics in the collection. In conclusion, yay ladies!!!

Yuletide!

Yuletide fics are up! I'm really happy about the gifts I received! Some awesome mystery person got my request for Monty Python's Life of Brian and wrote Four Completely Unconnected Scenes In 1st c. Judea. It is just the kind of wackiness I was hoping for, with environmentalists protesting against the Romans, Judith and Loretta discovering feminism, and a special guest appearance by Jesus. Yay!

For the first time I also got extra Yuletide treats! Two people decided to write me fics about Harold and Kumar's epically awkward love!
Here are a few other favorites from what I've read so far. fandoms: Leverage, Anthropomorfic, Saving Face, Fairy Tales, The Handmaid's Tale )

There are over 2700 stories of 1000 words or more in the regular collection, and a bunch of shorter Yuletide Madness fics will be released soon. The site's a little slow because of all the people using it, but it's been fine for me to read one thing while another is loading. You can browse by fandom or check out other people's rec lists posted to [livejournal.com profile] yuletide. I'll probably do another recs post tomorrow or Monday.
