Doctor Who podfic: What We've Become (the Mt. Saint Helens Remix)

Podfic cover: What We've Become (the Mt Saint Helens Remix
Cover by [personal profile] xenoamorist

Title What We've Become (the Mt. Saint Helens Remix)
Author: [personal profile] vanitashaze
Fandom: Doctor Who
Characters/Pairing: Donna/Martha
Summary: Sometimes Martha thinks the world is like that: composite. Layers on layers, and no foundation in sight.
Reader's notes: I made a podfic of What We've Become by [personal profile] thedeadparrot for the [ profile] podtor_who challenge in December. I always meant to do the remix as well (in fact it is one of my favorite remixes) but didn't get permission from the author in time for that challenge. However, I was able to record it for the [community profile] chromatic_podfic, and [personal profile] xenoamorist made me this awesome cover!
Length: 1 hour 9 minutes for the remix alone, 1 hour 34 minutes for the original and the remix together.

A few recs and things!

First of all let's talk about some podfic things!

podfic links, mostly Merlin podfic recs )

Here are a few fics I've enjoyed reading recently!

Arthur/Merlin, Gwaine/Merlin, Arthur/Gwen )

And here are links to some other things!

-[community profile] month_of_meta is a new comm encouraging people to post meta during March. I really enjoyed [personal profile] lunabee34's post Fannish Trajectories: Isolation, a Sense of Disconnection from Fandom, and How We Deal and saw a lot of parallels with my own experience, though she and I are in pretty different places now.

-[personal profile] eruthros made an epic picspam of famous people and animals (mostly dogs and cats) that is sure to brighten your day, evening, etc. There are more pictures of cute animals and other happy-making things in the comments to [personal profile] thingswithwings's post sick: send help.

-The March mini-challenge at [community profile] kink_bingo is to try new things, ideally "A character/pairing I've never worked on before, from a fandom I've never worked on before, doing a kink I've never done in my fanworks before, in a medium (painting/fic/vidding/podfic/etc) I've never tried to do before." This idea makes me happy! I realized there are not a lot of fandoms that I like but have never podficced in, but my current plan is to write a song for a pairing I've never worked on in a fandom I've only made a couple podfics for (never written in), and a kink where I've so far only written a drabble. I think that should be a good challenge!

Podfic challenges

Some friends and I are putting together a collection of short lady-centric podfics for the [ profile] halfamoon community. If you've been meaning to give podficcing a try but didn't know where to start, this could be a great chance to read a drabble or two and have it included in a collection with a lot of other readers and fandoms. Experienced podficcers are obviously also welcome. Here's the information post on Dreamwidth and on LJ.

I'm also going to be helping out with the [community profile] chromatic_podfic challenge this year. Signups for podficcers just closed but we've added a post where people can offer to make covers or do other collaborations.

I need to contact one of the artists who commented there but I'm feeling uncertain because I've got a cold right now, and I don't know if I'll be able to make the big thing I was planning on for chromatic_podfic, or even a little thing for the ladies anthology. :/

(And there were other important things I needed to do today. Ummm.)

Yay podfic!

fandom-ish things: podficcing and reading

This has never come up so far, but just in case: if you ever happen to see people talking smack about me at an anon meme or under f-lock or whatever, please don't tell me about it. If you don't see people talking about me at the memes please don't tell me about that either. I really prefer not to know. Thanks!


Signups are open for round two of [community profile] chromatic_podfic! Let's participate the hell out of this fest, you guys! I feel like characters of color get even less attention in podfic than in fic, and that's really not very much.

podficcing! )


I can has a Kindle! For a little over two weeks now, though gosh it feels like longer - I am really reluctant to go back to paper books or reading long fics on my computer screen now (thank you so much to authors who post their fic, especially their long fic, at the AO3!!!!). a couple book and fic recs (Merlin and Merlin rpf) )
