sophinisba: Troy and Abed from Community sitting on a couch with a computer in front of them (troy abed by carly-icons)
I went and asked for a card for the new round of [community profile] podfic_bingo even though I had tried this once before in 2011, the height of my podfic fandom, and even then never crossed off a square. These days I am much less active as a podficcer but also perhaps a little more open-minded, having spent more time with people who are more experimental in their podfic making. So we'll see what happens. Here is my new card:

Unfamiliar Genre Splice Fics Together Write and record your own story Read While Laughing Yuletide
Disability Character Voices Collaborate with one or more writers Incorporate Physical Sound Angst
Read with Breaths Read Sleepily WILD CARD Fairy Tale Lower Pitch Effect
Different Source Medium Repod Cold Dirty Talk 2+ Hours Long Rough
No Dialogue First Time Record in Bed Read Quietly Use Protection/Filters

Several bingos look doable to me, like a diagonal from the lower left (no dialog) to upper right (Yuletide), or maybe the middle column, since I always find recording dirty talk to be embarrassing but also awesome, and in general I like spending time in bed.

After some discussion earlier this week, the mods at the Merlin Big Bang community [ profile] aftercamlann just made the decision to accept podfics as illustrations of their new stories. And I decided I wouldn't be interested in making a podfic as an illustration, with the tight turnaround and limited choice of stories and all, but I would like to challenge myself to make a podfic with their minimum wordcount of 25K this year, and that would also let me cross off the 2+ Hours square here.

Heck, maybe I'll go for a blackout, even though I don't know what some of the squares mean. I guess it's open to interpretation. ANYTHING COULD HAPPEN.

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!

I got my [community profile] podfic_bingo card! This post has some negative reactions but they are personal ones and not meant as criticism of the challenge! I still think this is a really cool thing.

card and thoughts )

I like the fact that we have a whole year to try to make a bingo or a blackout or whatever. Right now I'm working on a bunch of little things for [community profile] chromatic_podfic, about to start a bigger one (or maybe two?) for [ profile] podficbigbang, and will probably do a couple more for [community profile] kink_bingo before May. So I probably won't start in on [community profile] podfic_bingo right away, but it's good to have these prompts in mind. I think the bottom line across would probably be the easiest.

I also really like that [personal profile] paraka gave us html tables so I can come back and edit in the links (and maybe also color in the squares!) as I go. :) It's annoying that the table borders don't show up on Dreamwidth though.
