ladiesbigbang podfics: Still Life (BSG) and Lunch and Other Obscenities (Star Trek)

After posting a lot of short porny podfics over the last few months (and with a few longer porny podfics in the works), I am very happy to present these two longer gen podfics about complicated friendships between lady space travelers as my entry for [community profile] ladiesbigbang Round 2! Munditia's "Still Life" is a beautiful and moving retelling of Battlestar Galactica canon from the perspective of Anastasia Dualla, with a special focus on her relationship with Starbuck. Rheanna's "Lunch and Other Obscenities" is a very smart and funny story of how Uhura and Gaila overcome major cultural differences.

Thanks to the authors and artists for the chance to add my take on these wonderful works, with special thanks to [personal profile] yue_ix for creating new artwork as a cover for Still Life.

Fandom: Battlestar Galactica (2003)

Have now listened to LaOO and it's WONDERFUL. You really nail Zoe's intonations as Nyota and I love the rappor between her and Gaila. Your Spock was wonderful and the whole thing was completely delightful. <3

Eeee, you did make my BSG story into a podfic, and it's right up there with an audioversion of one of my favourite ST fanfics ever! Thank you ever so much for this! I've just downloaded it and started listening, and you're doing such a great job. This is all kinds of lovely and wonderful and awesome!

Finished listening to Lunch & Other Obscenities. Three times. Your reading is very clear and I liked the emotions you put into the reading, especially the scene in the dorm when Gaila's at her breaking point.

Just finished Lunch and Other Obscenities. It was fantastic! I really enjoyed your reading, especially the emotions you put into the dialogue. :)

LaOO is so wonderfully done. The way your Nyota voice warms when talking about Gaila from beginning to end is great. The art gallery scene is my absolute favorite. I've definitely used this podfic to try and drag a past (fandom-adjacent) roommate fully into fandom.
