In the last couple weeks four different people
have made podfics of things I wrote!!!!!!!flammablehat
made her very first podfic
with Drink His Kiss Down Dry
(Merlin/Nimueh, 5 minutes). This is a porny D/s ficlet and she reads it in a matter-of-fact way that I think fits Nimueh very well. I helped show her how to edit so I listened to the raw file and was crazy jealous of how few mistakes she made while she was reading, so I figure she is a natural at this (not that one needs to be
) and she and another friend and I have decided to go in on a 4-hour project together. Ha! Anyway, please welcome a new reader to the fold.leish
recorded falcon and a dove
(Gwen/Merlin, 4 minutes). This is quite light and playful and everything I love about my secret OTP, really.croissantkatie
listened to leish
's podfic and liked it so much that she decided to repod it! Now this is very exciting in itself because omg transformative works! I wrote that story inspired by yue_ix
's artwork rosebud with a flush
and to a lesser extent by a commentfic
that was also inspired by yue's work. yue's drawing was in turn inspired by a lyric by John Boyle O’Reilly (and obvs by this show we watch) and it is just this whole universe of connections spinning around and making me very happy to be part of it.
But then also Katie was enjoying that so much that she read a bunch of my other fics and decided to make a whole little anthology of 5 Merlin podfics
-falcon and a dove (Gwen/Merlin, 4 minutes)
-Her Balm, Her Bane (Morgana/Morgause, 7 minutes)
-If I Cannot Be Your Queen (Gwen/Arthur, 5 minutes)
-The Opposite of Work (Gwen & Morgana friendship, 5 minutes)
-My Best Kept Secret (Freya/Merlin, 12 minutes)
These are all pretty small but there's also a huge range between them, including one of my first Merlin fics from three years ago as well as three that were dark enough to make me fear I'd lose friends when I posted them (rapist!Merlin wth). Katie takes different approaches to reading them, and some were very close to what I had in my head as a writer while others were very different. Listening to them was thus trippy and emotional and excellent.cantarina
wanted to help me celebrate something that happened offline last week so she asked me for something to podfic and I picked one of my last Lord of the Rings fics Little Illusions
(post-quest RosieSamFrodo, 3 minutes). It is quite lovely and might be fun for some of my old friends to listen to even if you are normally not into podfic (there's a streaming link so you don't need to bother downloading).
Also also, for Reverse Remix
(which is still going and also has LotR people in it!), netgirl_y2k
wrote Sparring Partners
, (Forridel/Morgana, 880 words), a wonderful update on a comment fic I wrote during season 2. If you love Morgana you gotta love Netgirl.
