growlery: Gwen from Merlin (gwen)
the best month is upon us. i'm going on holiday for ten days on wednesday so idk how much i'll be able to Produce but i recorded a podfic i'm gonna try and finish editing before then we'll see how it goes.

it's not strictly femmeslash but the awesome ladies podfic anthology is running again. i absolutely will not have time to make anything but i hope lots of people do!

[personal profile] clockwork_hart1 is hosting a femmeslash ficathon here which i've already left a bunch of prompts for. maybe i'll even get round to writing some!

i would like to post some f/f fic this month. i posted a [community profile] femslashficlets fill like a week ago and i have solid ideas for three other prompts from that table rn, one of which is girl!gansey/girl!ronan because i had raven cycle feelings out of nowhere the other day welp.

i made a twitter thread of femmeslashable webseries recs and reminded myself of a bunch of old feelings, so probably i'll try and write fic for them for [community profile] 100fandoms.

i'll be 25 on the 16th and i am determinedly not freaking out about it. ageing is fine. continuing to exist is fine. it's all basically fine.

i have a whole bunch of these! it was just new year's, and i always get really into new year's resolutions because i love navel-gazing. most of these are more long-term, though? more places i want to direct my life towards than destinations i want to reach, i guess.

my biggest most important overarching goal is something i have called No Perfect, because tldr a bunch of personal shit perfectionism is my fatal flaw. accepting this about myself has already like, helped a whole bunch. realising how much of what i do and think is wrapped up in this?? mind-blowing, lemme tell you. therapy is wild.

so that's the big-un! i have many more; i'm not kidding about the navel-gazing yo )

so the creative things i do are writing, podficcing and making podfic covers, but my processes for the last two are pretty standard?

for podfic, i pick a story, i record the story, i edit the story, i post the story. if i'm gonna incorporate music or sound effects, i usually realise during editing, and i lump all that in the editing process.

when it comes to cover art, i only make a cover if i have a solid concept for one. from there it's gather the pictures, arrange them in some way, mess with the contrast/colouring/etc, then fight with the text so it looks like something i won't hate. i have a massive library of fonts that i've collected over the years, so this last step has been a lot easier recently.

writing, though. hoo boy. it's a whole ass mess )
growlery: monty from the 100 (my sun and stars)
here i am doing another [community profile] snowflake_challenge post, and it's for self-promotion. I Hunger For Validation Okay

when you lay me down you'll bury only bones [podfic] (welcome to night vale, canon-compliant, carlos/cecil)

i think this is my favourite podfic i've ever made, ever? it's a beautiful soft heartfelt story about love and friendship and identity and like, night vale weirdness, and reading it aloud was just an absolute joy. it just kind of flowed out of me, easy as anything, which is such a Good podfic feeling, when it goes like that. and i'm just really happy with the end product.

Starstruck (another word I never learnt to pronounce) (merlin, stardust au, elena/morgan + a shit ton of others)

this isn't, like. it's nearly six years old now, and last time i reread it i cringed, but it still made me feel a lot. it started because i wanted to write a fix-it fic for morgana, but it kind of ballooned into approximately every feeling or grievance i ever had regarding this cursed show. so it's maybe not good, but it's very very important to me. maybe it could be to you too.

coax the cold right out of me (the 100, college/coffee shop au, monty/miller, bellamy&miller, minor bellamy/raven)

in my notes i described this as a self-indulgent mess and wow is that true. i wrote this in the middle of a depression/anxiety spiral in my final year at uni, and i poured an embarrassing amount of that into this fic. but also it's about friendship and soft romo nonsense and taking care of each other and having a bunch of feelings, aka The Leish Brand TM. i've got a bunch of really lovely comments on this, so it seems it's not just relevant to my specific interests! maybe.

i'm gonna do the not-self recs one next! i have too many things i want to rec, so i'm gonna figure out a sensible way to structure it. maybe a theme? idk we'll see.

i don't know how common moodboards are outside of tumblr - those mini-picspam aesthetic posts on a particular concept - but i think they're pretty cool, and i've never made one myself, so i decided to make one for [personal profile] girlmarauders's a++++ soul plant au.

et voila )

i've been enjoying seeing people's [community profile] snowflake_challenge posts and i actually have stuff i wanna post for this day!

friends at the table is an actual play table top rpg podcast about critical worldbuilding, smart characterisation and fun interaction between good friends AND IT'S GREAT. i wrote a manifesto, pls read it and listen to the podcast (or check out their episode transcripts, which are currently incomplete but the work is ongoing).

here is a snippet where they talk about a main character from their COUNTER/weight arc, ibex, whom i love.

some feelings )

transcript )

i love austin walker with my whole entire heart. speaking of, here is a soundboard somebody made with thirty Things He Has Said, including, in tones of delight, "who's that big man?" and his classic heartfelt "aw, buddy". even if you have no idea who this man is, it will delight you.
growlery: raven reyes from the 100 (light of my life)
i wrote way more than i expected to this year, but not as much i wanted!! alas. 19 fics isn't so bad for me.

my favourite: bring me to life (the adventure zone)

this was so fucking hard for me to write, because Writing Is Hard, and i'm not 100% satisfied with how it turned out, but i'm still really proud of it. it's a pretty nonsense premise (hot fuzz if hot fuzz had necromancers) and i'm not sure i got the tone right, but i wrote a bunch of jokes that made me laugh, SO. also it was one of my [community profile] pod_together projects, and [archiveofourown.org profile] pumpkinpodfic made a fucking amazing podfic out of it. seriously!! if you are at all interested in this story do yourself a favour and listen to it instead of reading it.

most kudos: reflect more than light (friends at the table)

i have no idea how this ended up being so popular?? it's a college/figure drawing au for a relatively small fandom, and there isn't even any sex! there's barely any making out! i am really fond of the concept though, so i'm glad it resonated with other people i guess.

chaaaaarts )

goals? dare i have any? )
growlery: monty from the 100 (my sun and stars)
i made 54 podfics last year! that's so much more than i managed in 2017, and i'm really proud of what i was able to create.

some thoughts )

have some charts! love some charts! )

goals for this year?? )

some things i really like: any kind of team-based AU, very accurate/intensely researched/specifically detailed AUs, wacky hijinks, sappy romcom nonsense, really close friendships, quasiplatonic relationships, explorations of LGBTQ identities, feels about being queer, genderfuck, fake dating, soulbonding, pining, ensemble/group dynamics, casual touching, platonic bed-sharing, found families, complicated polyamory, settings that feel like characters, religious/spiritual elements, people taking care of each other, lovers to enemies to friends, backstory, character studies, plants, men doing emotional labour, supernatural stuff, robots, healing after pain, time travel, magical weirdness in otherwise mundane settings, marriage of convenience, fantasy/scifi settings, painplay, bondage/restraints, non-sexual kink, people being bad at feelings but feeling a lot anyway

my bookmarks are a really good indication of my taste.

please warn for: character death, self-harm, coming out stories involving parents, sexual assault and related trauma, homophobia in religious settings

please no: grimdark, pregnancy, focus on taking care of children, power imbalances, cross-generational incest, discussion of diets/exercise regimens/body maintenance/weight management/etc, possessive behaviour, humiliation, misogyny/racism/homophobia/transphobia/etc in historical settings for ~accuracy, infidelity, D/s*, characters lying about a big part of their identity or pretending to be someone else particularly to pursue a romantic relationship

*i am very very picky about D/s and usually it's a bad time, but this is an example of it really working for me if you wanna go that route.

the adventure zone (dust) - all

i love TAZ for many reasons, but the tone is a huge one. i love that, especially in dust, it is very emotionally harrowing while always maintaining a certain lightheartedness and whimsy and like, belief in goodness and kindness and Doing The Right Thing. and the worldbuilding!! i really like the werewolf/vampire/etc mythology here. i care deeply about dylan/jeremiah and anne/jeremiah and dylan/jeremiah/anne, ot3 of my heart. i appreciate Sad Gays as much as the next queer but I'd really like a story that's ultimately hopeful and uplifting. if you wanted to go AU and have jeremiah not die OR turn into a ghost OR some other cool weird supernatural tomfoolery i would be very into that. role reversals, also good. idk i think the only thing i wouldn't enjoy is like a straight up Anne And Jeremiah Are In Love And Dylan Is Sad About It kinda fic.

dirty computer - jane, zen, ché 

literally anything. anything!!!! i am so fascinated by the world and our heroes' place in it. here for the ot3 of course - tell me about their adventures pre/post/during the emotion picture, quiet moments in between the action, who they were before all this started, how they fell in together and fell in love, what kind of future they build together. romance!! obviously i'd enjoy them as a straightforward balanced triad, but if you wanted to complicate the setup i would be extremely into that. i love complicated polyamory!!!

to all the boys i loved before (movie) - lara jean, margot, kitty, peter

SIBLING. FEELINGS. this film absolutely devastated me with lara jean's relationship with her sisters, and i would love to know all about them! i also adore lara jean/peter and shippy fic would be great. canon is cool, but this is one fandom i would be extra into AUs for. put them in space! make peter a secret romance novel writer! send them to hogwarts! these are just a few off the top of my head, i can't picture an AU i wouldn't enjoy.

monster factory - the final pam

pam is love, pam is life. i really want something in the spirit of monster factory's absolute batshittery. crossovers? yes PLEASE. pam tearing her way through various media properties would be a gift. canon compliant stuff is good too though i'm not sure what counts as canon here?? the fallout four videos? monster factory as a whole? i really enjoy that she turns up in that one where dark souls is pizza, and the implications of her existing in this like, wider monster factory universe.

growlery: a shot of noah centineo gazing adoringly at lana condor - they're inside a schoolbus (Default)
hello friend! i am so excited for whatever it is you make for me. more than anything, i love hearing someone tell me a story that they obviously enjoy. if you love it, i will love it! i love music and no music and sfx and no sfx and experimental styles and radio plays and oral notfic and completely standard podfic. it is all so good.

some things i really like:
any kind of team-based AU, very accurate/intensely researched/specifically detailed AUs, wacky hijinks, sappy romcom nonsense, really close friendships, quasiplatonic relationships, explorations of LGBTQ identities, feels about being queer, genderfuck/rule 63/etc, fake dating, soulbonding, pining, ensemble/group dynamics, casual touching, platonic bed-sharing, found families, complicated polyamory, settings that feel like characters, religious/spiritual elements, people taking care of each other, lovers to enemies to friends, backstory, character studies, plants, men doing emotional labour, supernatural stuff, robots, healing after pain, time travel, magical weirdness in otherwise mundane settings, marriage of convenience, fantasy/scifi settings, painplay, bondage/restraints, non-sexual kink, people being bad at feelings but feeling a lot anyway

please no: grimdark, pregnancy, focus on taking care of children, power imbalances, cross-generational incest, discussion of diets/exercise regimens/body maintenance/weight management/etc, possessive behaviour, humiliation, misogyny/racism/homophobia/transphobia/etc in historical AUs for ~accuracy, infidelity, D/s*, non-famous people as a focus of rpf, characters lying about a big part of their identity or pretending to be someone else particularly to pursue a romantic relationship

*i am very very picky about D/s and usually it's a bad time, but this is an example of it really working for me if you wanna go that route.

the 100 (no bellarke or clexa)

mostly here for bellamy, raven, wells, lincoln, monty and miller. harper, monroe, gina, echo and octavia are good too. bellamy/raven are the ship of my heart and i'm indescribably fond of monty/miller. i have some residual fondness for clarke and would enjoy bellamy/clarke/raven(/wells).

canon compliant stuff is cool but i'm only vaguely keeping up with the show post 3x08 so canon divergences and AUs are particularly good here.

friends at the table (COUNTER/weight and twilight mirage)

if we didn't match on this and you're curious, or possibly you follow me on twitter and have seen me shout about it, here is my Listen To Friends At The Table manifesto.

i'm basically all about the ensemble for both these seasons. for c/w, i don't not ship cass/mako but i prefer it as part of aria/audy/cass/mako. jill is my actual favourite, and i enjoy aria/jacqui/jill in any combination. i also love diego, and just generally the odamas fleet is my favourite faction.

for tm, echo reverie owns my heart. echo/anybody is good with me, including for my sins echo/declan's, and OF COURSE echo/grand. i love the notion as an ensemble and in any combination. also good: gray/demani. also also good: c/w and tm canons mixing (potentially with time travel shenanigans??)

the adventure zone (all arcs)

all about the ensemble here too! dust podfic would be super cool, but genuinely i love all the arcs and their characters. i LOVE the character interaction in taz, so character-driven and/or heavy dialogue podfic would be fantastic.

shippy stuff is great, gen stuff is great, ensemble gen is particularly great, but my absolute fav is lup&taako.

men's hockey rpf (pk, agally/bgally, avs minus varlamov, mitch/dylan/conor, leafs, nicky/ovi)

i have recently fallen back into hockey and much deeper than last time oh boy. i am forever in pk fandom!!! my otp is pk/happiness but i would be up for pairing him with basically anyone he's ever interacted with. particular faves are pk/roman, pk/tavares and, of course, pk/carey. i am very into the pre-2016 habs ensemble pk/carey/prusty/patches/gallys/etc, so stories about them then or now with some of them having escaped montreal would be lovely. i have a disgusting amount of feelings about les gallys especially post alex being traded.

i've got incredibly into the avs, especially tyson barrie, disaster bi. tyson/nate/gabe is what i am ABOUT, but the couple breakdowns are great too. rookie house ot3 is also great! i very much enjoy the avs ensemble minus varlamov pls and thank you. eta: also apparently I care deeply about mitch marner/dylan strome/conor mcdavid, so that's a thing. eta eta'd: i guess i'm into the leafs now?? i blame my sweet boy john tavares. pretty much any and all ships are groovy and the ensemble is Everything. eta eta'd AGAIN: i was tentatively appreciative of nicky/ovi and now it's hit me like a freight train, I Love Them

important note here: i would really appreciate if you could avoid the physical toll of hockey on players' bodies, especially injury recovery and the intense scrutiny and maintenance of a particular body. this is not to say i don't want to hear stories about chronic pain and disability! it's just the body talk i can't handle.

steven universe (steven&/connie, lapis/peridot, feasibly any gem/gem ship)


i got all caught up with the most recent series and realised how many feelings i have about this show. i would list my favourites but i would be listing pretty much everybody, so you really can't go wrong podficcing in this fandom. if i had to on pain of death pick a single favourite it would be peridot and i LOVE everything about her and her barn wife lapis lazuli. i also adore steven and i adore connie and i adore how much they adore each other.

buzzfeed unsolved (ryan/shane, ryan/sara/shane, ryan/zack)

i love bfu supernatural a lot, but true crime in general is kinda bad for me. entirely fictional crime? all good! so don't let that stop you making serial killer au podfic if that's what your heart desires. ryan/shane is of course great, and everything about ryan/sara/shane is so good for me, and i'm also pretty into ryan/zack.

i enjoy the ensemble around bfu too! i don't watch worth it but i love steven lim and steven/andrew is very cute. i do watch ladylike and i love all of them but especially jen. i LOVE quinta and i'm really enjoying quinta vs everything. i do enjoy the try guys but mostly i just love eugene endlessly.
