Fic rec request and a meme

I've already recorded three short podfics for the [community profile] chromatic_podfic challenge (without having signed up yet ha ha)! Editing will come later but shouldn't be too bad (I mean, one case looks like it'll be challenging but in a good way). What I've done so far has been fun but does not fit too well with my NYR to make more podfics of over 30 minutes. Maybe you can help me out by recommending some good fics starring characters of color or from fandoms where the creators are people of color, and that are between 5000 and 10,000 words, any genre.

One character I'm especially interested in is Martha Jones, but strangely enough (or maybe just because I don't read a lot of Whofic except for multifandom challenges I'm in) my favorite Martha fics that I can think of are all remixes or remixed, and I don't want to record one of those stories without its complement, but because of the old remixy POV shift and most of the other characters being white, one of the two stories is not really appropriate for this challenge. (Maybe I can do them later though!)

And now, let's have a meme!

Name a character from one of my fandoms and I'll give you:
a) a fact about them from my personal canon
b) a reason he/she sucks
c) a reason he/she is amazing
d) a thing that I'd like to see happen to them
e) someone that I can't ship that character with

It's around 20,000 words, but Where My Thought's Escaping is a great Cho-centric gen fic. Mind you, ideally a podficcer for that would speak some Chinese...

I'd also love it if you podficced Merrily on High but that's both too long and has Morgana as the POV character.


Oooh, how about In Search of Elysium? 6,600 words, Gwen/Morgana and from Gwen's POV.

If you're looking for more stories with Martha in, this is what I have on delicious. She's not a central character in all of them, but you might like Valentines Day This Year, Streams, or Miss Osterhaagen Regrets.

So on that note, I would like to know some of your fanon about Martha! :D

Stupid question, but have you had a look through [ profile] lifeonmartha? In the sidebar, there's a list of shippy and gen recs, as well as a to a few fests.

I love Martha and I love Mickey, but it sort of makes a mess of the whole Tom affair. What made her change her mind? My headcanon is that poor Tom feel through a crack in time :/

I don't have at my bookmarks right now, but I hope you find some great stuff!

Maaartha <3 There are 40 things under my Martha tag here, not sure how long they are though... Lizbee's Huntsman might be a good length (is definitely a good fic)? Sheldrake's A Place Called Home is really really nice fic that's All About Martha versus being a shippy piece (if that's what you're after), but idk if it's long enough. Hope that's some help!

oh, I'd be delighted! Hope you like it, it's silly and shippy :) I did totally miss the BSB podfics - how cool! Must download, that's exciting!
