The delightful [personal profile] anatsuno has podficced two stories of mine recently. Go and listen, guys, she is (as you probably all know) a fantastic reader -- she read the second one cold and did an amazing job!

I Want Your Psycho is here


here is The Sanctity of Patience.

(If you listen, don't forget to leave a comment and/or hit the kudos button.)

(Also, you know you've been neglecting your DW/LJ in favour of twitter when you have to remind yourself that you don't use @ to tag people in entries and there's no point in using twitterian contractions like 'ppl'. Ugh, me.)


Things of Note!

This is so long overdue, but here are a few cool things that have happened with regards to secondary fanworks of my stuff in the last month or so:

[personal profile] podcath recorded podfic of my 3rd Rock/Inception crossover! *muppet arms* I love this odd little story, I confess, and I'm glad she liked it enough to record it. It's awesome -- listen and give her due props: In Duty Homeward Shall We Fly

Also in the category of that fic, [livejournal.com profile] rainy_elliot has translated it into Russian, here. Very cool! Obviously I cannot make heads or tails of it as a complete non-Russian speaker/reader, but I can tell you that putting the page through Google translate does make for good times as an English speaker, especially as this particular fic lifts a few lines of dialogue from canon. For example:

- Do not be afraid to be daring, darling, - said Eames and took half a roof with one stone.


It is gratifying to see how you deign to praise, Arthur. Thank you.


- We have fun with them nicely - with a grim smile, Arthur promised by connecting Eames. - Good night, Mr. Eames.

(I am sure it is 1000000 times better in Russian, btw, but I do think even some of these lines might be better than Nolan's canon.)

Lastly, in the primary fanwork category, we have cookies.

I make cookies for co-worker Christmas gifts, or have done for the past couple of years. I was chatting with [personal profile] xenakis as I finished up baking some gingerbread for this project in early December and confessed that [profile] stars_collected (who was sharing the decorating work with me in exchange for cookies for her own gifting) and I would have trouble refraining from making all the gingerbread men into tiny Arthur and Eameses. To which she replied, as any responsible fangirl would, DO IT. NOW.

The result? )

I literally just made that noise. I woke up this morning to a message from [livejournal.com profile] reena_jenkins that she had podficced the How Not to Fly 'verse.

I'll say that again: the How Not to Fly 'verse. That's some eight hours of podfic, right there. I'm completely blown away! Of course I haven't listened to the whole thing yet (though I've started) but I love what I've heard. I adore hearing other people read my fic. Actually, I just love podfic in general. It takes me back to when I was a little kid listening to stories on tape at bedtime, except with more sexy bits.

Did I mention there's also a pair of covers by [livejournal.com profile] bessyboo? So cool!

Anyway, here's [livejournal.com profile] reena_jenkins's post (which includes some very lovely and flattering things about the 'verse). Go forth and download and listen, and most importantly, give Reena some love, yo. EIGHT. HOURS.

[personal profile] pennyplainknits has done a podfic of Ach, des Knaben Augen! *swoons everywhere* Sadly the audiofic archive seems to be down at the moment (ETA: the link still isn't working but I have direct links to the podfics below.) so I haven't had a listen yet but I'm so excited to hear it! Not only is Penny a great reader whose podfic I've enjoyed forever, but she combined awesomeness forces with [personal profile] xenakis to create a music version of the fic with pieces sprinkled throughout. I'm not one to listen to music when I write generally but for this series it will surprise no one that I listened to certain pieces on repeat throughout; it thrills me to contemplate pairing this gorgeous powerful music with my humble story.

Xen also contributed amazing cover art! CHECK IT OUT!!!! Gorgeous jailbait Eames and patient lovely Arthur, leaning over a piano as these boys should. *draws hearts*


Direct links to fic files (right click and Save As):

MP3 version with music
MP3 version without music
M4B version (podbook) with music by [personal profile] cybel

Anyway, go forth and tell [personal profile] pennyplainknits and [personal profile] xenakis how amazing they are in their respective podfic posts here and here.

PodFic: Waiting For My Real Life To Begin

(Cross-posted -- at least, the important bits, not the rambly bits -- over at [livejournal.com profile] sgapodfic.)

About, oh, two months ago, I had a little extra money and decided to splurge on a really good versatile USB mic for my computer. After all, I'm a music person -- I can't always be getting by with noisy iSight recordings, can I? Of course, as fate would have it, I then proceeded to get the Two Month Cold and it wasn't until the last couple of weeks I could string together words with nasal consonants and breathe almost silently between sentences.

All this is my roundabout way of introducing the fact that I've made a podfic of my latest story. This took a really shockingly long time, but thanks to SeƱor FancyPants the Mic, it's nearly impossible to hear the MANY places I had to edit around flubbed words and sentences. It's not perfect -- I didn't realize until after the fact that my dishwasher makes a low-grade humming noise through two scenes near the end, and I have yet to master the art of Always Speaking Slowly -- but it's a heck of a lot better than anything I could have made with my iSight built-in mic. Next thing I need to get is a pop filter, though, as almost every "p" and many "f"s hit sound distortion levels on the monitor. My asthma, I can't help at this time of year, so sorry about the occasional slight gasp for breath.

In any case -- the podfic, in sendspace link form!

toomuchplor: (it's not cute being this easy)
Because I just finished uploading it for poor sick [livejournal.com profile] sparktastic, and because it's been over a month since I wrote a thing on this LJ:


That's my link to my own (now nearly 1 year old) podfic recording of Plan C, or How Rodney McKay Lost His Wife and Gained a Galaxy, my offering for [livejournal.com profile] undermistletoe last year. Share, archive, etc.! Sorry I am a lame reader.

The last few days I've been reveling in podfic -- I can knit and read at the same time! -- and loving the sense of being told a story. So many readers have such beautiful voices, it's truly a pleasure to listen.

So, of course, I thought I'd torment all of you with my own little Canadian voice (I sound like an 8-year-old, you'll see) reading a fic of my own. I especially love the long stories -- you can stretch them out over a few car trips -- so I chose a longer one to read. Oh, and you'll hear (at different times) my parents' mantle clock and my dog jingling around the house. Ahaha...

I've been told I'm a fast reader, but I do try to enunciate. And, considering I'm a professional musician, it would totally make sense for me to compose and insert my own little snippets of instrumental prelude and interlude music. However, I did not. I am lazy. Hope this is entertaining for y'all!

Plan C, or How Rodney McKay Lost His Wife and Gained a Galaxy
Rating: NC-17
Pairing: Sheppard/McKay, implicit history of Carter/McKay, implied Carter/Sheppard. But really, it's full-on McShep. I swear. *g*
Length: 9000 words.
Spoilers: General Season Four, up to, at the latest, Miller's Crossing (haven't seen This Mortal Coil yet).
Summary: When dot com billionaire Rodney McKay learns that his soon-to-be-ex-wife, the beautiful and brilliant Samantha Carter, has taken up with a new man, he resolves to come between them any way he can. Can Rodney use his manly powers of seduction to lure handsome John Sheppard out of his wife's bed and into his? And, most importantly, who will get custody of the cat in the divorce?
