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.

Title: Still Life
Author: Munditia aka [personal profile] fallingtowers
Fandom: Battlestar Galactica (2003)
Characters: Anastasia Dualla and Kara Thrace (gen with canon pairings)
Content Notes/Warnings: Reference to canon character deaths and violence; spoilers for the full series.
Author's summary: "If she'd been more like Starbuck, she could have been loud and angry and looking for a fight; but she was a follower of Hestia and Hebe, a quiet onlooker trying to keep the home-fires burning."
Length: 31 minutes

Two fic recs!
-Care and Feeding of (Fragile) Princes by [ profile] srin, Arthur/Merlin, NC-17, 3400 words. I always feel a bit silly reccing a fic that's already got several pages of comments, especially one by an author who's known to most of the Merlin fans on my f-list...but, hey, look at this great fic! Especially recommended for fans of bottom!Arthur and emotionally-repressed!Arthur with Merlin taking care of him, done in a very subtle and lovely way.

-Yonder Comes the Morning by [personal profile] vanessarama aka [ profile] andraste_oz, Arthur/Merlin or Arthur and Merlin (with Gaius), PG, 5800 words. Merlin gets bitten by a snake and the wound gets infected. OLD SCHOOL H/C WITH FEVERISH MERLIN AND STOIC ANGSTY ARTHUR. THIS IS THE BEST.

Two podfic recs!
-First Up Against the Wall (the grease and diesel oil remix), written by [personal profile] netgirl_y2k, read by [personal profile] via_ostiense, Gwen/Morgana, R, 27 minutes. I think most Merlin femslash fans know this awesome fic, but did you know there was a podfic? I had missed it and it's a lot of fun.

-Indulgence, written by [ profile] allwithwings, read by [ profile] misssnowfox, Arthur/Merlin, NC-17, 33 minutes. I think this is a really great example of what podfics are good for. It's a first-time with Arthur and Merlin talking (awkwardly at first, then sexily) about wanking, which would maybe not have been that interesting to me in a fic, but the reader does a really fabulous job with the way Merlin uses his voice and his fantasies to seduce Arthur - guh. Also it's a really clean and high-quality recording from someone who's new to podficcing (and a writer who's new to Merlin fandom). Let's encourage them to make more! (Note: there's a lot of talk in the fic about homosexuality being a perversion, with both characters seeming to kink on the wrongness of the thing they want. For me that was sexy but it might be unpleasant for some.)

Three requests!
-[personal profile] frigg is thinking of starting up an Uther/everyone comm here on Dreamwidth, since the mod of [ profile] utherxtheboys seems to have gone away. Go tell her what a GREAT IDEA this is and vote on what the comm should be named!

-Hey Merlin artists (including people who like playing around with photoshop), feel like making a cover for a giant podfic? [ profile] eosrose and I each have two requests. She's doing [personal profile] seperis's The Tale of the Sea Serpent and [personal profile] lisztful's Backdrifts and I'm doing [ profile] srin's The Universal Language and [ profile] new_kate's Little Wooden Boy and the Belly of Love.

-I also did a short podfic this week, 18 minutes of Spock/Uhura porn for [community profile] kink_bingo. Drop me a comment here if you're up for giving it a quick listen for errors before I post it. Thanks!

I really love that [ profile] camelotsolstice kicked off posting last night with the gorgeous Gwen/Morgana artwork Knight. I love that it's getting lots of comments and reading the comments I keep seeing people point out things about the picture that I hadn't noticed before. It's neat that it's so hot even though it's rated G and they're both fully clothed (like, you get to see about as much of Gwen's breasts as in my icon). And like for me the sexiest part is Morgana's armor but for other people it's the placement of their hands and I think for a lot more it's the way they're looking at each other. But just in general wow and yay.

And if you're looking for some more explicit Gwen/Morgana, omg check out [ profile] miakun's The Box!!!
Summary: Gwen discovers a box of kinky sex toys Morgana used with her last girlfriend.
From the kink meme prompt: Gwen/Morgana, spanking
Very sweet established relationship fic but eventually very sexy too!

While I'm reccing, here's an older one that [ profile] kaizoku pointed me to, a really fun vid to a great, catchy song, Not Everything Is Uniform by [personal profile] oltha_heri. It's multiship but tells a story and I love it.

[personal profile] zulu invited me to remix one of her fics so I was looking around and I had a ball reading her House MD/Star Trek Reboot fusion On The Edge Of Night (alternate link).

That was written for [personal profile] roga, and I also really loved Roga's new American Idol/The West Wing crossover Post Lambert, Ergo Propter Lambert, in which the Bartlett White House reacts to the Good Morning America thing.

It's funny because I don't even usually read House or Star Trek or AI or TWW fic, but put them together and I am so there. :D

I like commenting on fic that I read. It makes me happy to know that I'm encouraging authors that I like and making them feel good. This is a nice, easy way of participating in fandom even at times when I'm not feeling creative or finishing any stories myself. Reading a fic I like and not commenting makes me feel bad – it's true I often neglect to do it if I have to e-mail, but LJ/IJ/Dth makes it so easy, it seems silly not to. cut for length )

Anyway, the real reason for this post is that I signed up at [ profile] idof_feedback to comment on 20 femslash fanworks by July 25th, and one of the requirements is to link to all the fanworks somewhere, so I'm doing it beneath the cut and will add to it as I go along. I'm at 12 so far so I expect to go over 20, especially with all the new stuff that's now available at [ profile] remixredux09 and [ profile] femslash09. I'm enjoying this – it sort of reminds me of [ profile] 50books_poc where it's worth it to go out of my way to read something that I wouldn't necessarily pick up otherwise, and I sometimes find that I love it and sometimes not so much. I'm starting to get a better idea of my own taste in femslash and to look differently at how a lot of other fanfics neglect female characters.

I liked all of these fics (or I wouldn't have read them!) but I especially want to recommend What We've Become by [ profile] thedeadparrot and What We've Become (The Mt. Saint Helens Remix), both Donna/Martha fics. When I was talking the other day about how much I like Gwen/Morgana I was sort of comparing it in my mind to shows like Doctor Who where you usually only get to have one female character at a time and I always thought femslash would be hard because the companions relate to each other through the Doctor, and some fans tend to pit the companions against each other and all that. Anyway, I really liked the Donna/Martha relationship being about Donna and Martha in both of these, and the Doctor and Jack being present but secondary to the women's story. Also they're just so well written. I wasn't crazy about the jumping around in time on the remix but I think it's still my favorite of the [ profile] remixredux09 stories I've read so far. links )

[ profile] such_heights is hosting a Star Trek: TOS rewatch/first-time watch at her journal on Dreamwidth. We're going to watch one episode per week, starting with fan favorites rather than going through them all in order; this week's ep is "The Trouble with Tribbles". You can find out more and/or introduce yourself here. If you want to participate but feel weird about friending [ profile] such_heights, you can subscribe to e-mail notifications for her "star trek rewatch" tag (click on the bell at the top of the page).
sophinisba: Frodo smiling (frodo happy by proverb)
Yesterday I read a really lovely Merlin fic and I was thinking, "I need to rec this so that [ profile] claudia603 will see it!" Then I got to the end and saw that the fic had been posted in February and already had three pages of comments, including one from Claudia, so I decided not to bother posting. But then today I realized that was silly because, hey, I loved the fic, why not say so? So anyway,

Into His Own by [ profile] sarcasticbabble, Merlin/Arthur, 8500 words and rated R, though most of it reads like a gen fic. It's about Merlin going off on his own after Arthur finds out, and Merlin coming into his own as a sorcerer while Arthur does as a King. I really loved the language of this. There is a lot of M/A fic that's fun and a little silly, that makes a lot of Arthur's prattishness and has a lot of little clever asides and then sex and it's, you know, I enjoy that too, but I think this more restrained and weighty kind of fic is my favorite. It's the kind of thing where you can recognize the characters that are fun and adorable on the show but you also see them growing into the old legends, and the writing feels right for that.

It reminded me of a couple other fics that I also love, also dealing with lots of bad stuff happening and Arthur and Merlin being separated:

All the Laughter from Before by [ profile] waldorph, M/A, 5,500+ words, R, which also comes with a great podfic made by the author.

Who Is Tied to Someone Else's Glove by [ profile] allira_dream, 2000+ words, Gwen/Arthur with heavily implied Arthur/Merlin, Gwen/Morgana and Gwen/Lancelot, PG-13. Claudia and [ profile] layne67 and I were talking last week about how much we like Arthur's way of saying Gwen's name and wondering how they might get together, whether on the show or in some hypothetical really awesome fic that we would write. :) And…we weren't really able to come up with much, but I do really like the relationship between them in this fic, and in particular the way he asks her to marry him.

Some other links!

[ profile] angstslashhope has some easy things you can do with html to make your journal or website more accessible for visually impaired people: Nerdy PSA.

[ profile] such_heights made a great happy-making Star Trek team love vid: We Go Together.

I guess Harry/Draco fandom has had a kerfuffle with some bad feelings and that is a shame, but I did enjoy reading [ profile] raitala's post about Newbies Versus Oldies and the discussion in comments about how people felt when they first came into fandom and how their perceptions have changed.

I had meant to say something on May 13th and completely forgot, but that was my LJ anniversary. Four years here in fandom, Frodo forever. I love you guys so much. ♥
