list o' podfic

What is podfic, you ask? Podfic is an audio recording of fanfic, read aloud by a fan.

I record one every now and then. You can download most of them from the Audiofic Archive. I've also started posting links from my AO3 account. Here's the list so far, sorted by fandom:

more LJ shenanigans?

Well, I'm importing my LJ to DW right now since there are rumors going around that an LJ script is improperly flagging legit LJ accounts as spam and DELETING THEM. This report originates in a fandom many degrees removed from me, so I don't know who has actually been affected by this.

bandom recs 2017

I've been holding on to this post for months in the hopes that I would collect more recs, but I just haven't been reading or listening to anything new-to-me in Bandom. Except for jjtaylor a few weeks ago. Last month, I started going through wolfshirts to see if I could identify it as the inspiration of other fics I've read, but then the bandombigbang deadlines started looming, so I've been trying to focus on that instead. Maybe I'll have actual new recs in October!

I could have sworn I'd read a bunch of classic Pete/Patrick fics while researching LJ bandom communities, but I didn't bookmark them. Oh well. I did add more links to the Peterick Fanlore page though: check it out!

Frank/Gerard

Nightswimming by Waxjism, the incredibly long and incredibly worth listening to podfic by greedy_dancer, who apparently spent 5 years working on this. I could listen to greedy_dancer's voice all day. The story is a small town AU with Gerard suffering from depression and Frank falling in love with him while dealing with changes at home. Happy ending!

Hold Your Heart into This Darkness by tuesdaysgone, podfic trilogy by argentumlupine. Amazing Killjoys verse story with happy ending. I was nervous initially about the power dynamics of the Gerard/Korse pairing in the first part, but it worked so well I kinda shipped it, uh, which should not have been the takeaway from how that relationship played out.

Love: The Package Deal by jjtaylor. amnesia and polyamory and pining and feelings all over the place. Not sure why I delayed reading this so long, since I love everything else by jjtaylor. Speaking of...

Ghost Frank series by jjtaylor. So I checked back to see if I had neglected to read anything else by jjtaylor and Holy Shit I had. I must have passed over this before because Frank starts out as, well, a ghost, and I am not a fan of character death. I did cry, but it has a happy ending. Possibly a little too saccharine, but I needed an antidote. The haunted house and creepy supernatural mystery elements were genuinely frightening to me reading in bed after midnight in my dark apartment....

Lindsey/Gerard
undeserving of your sympathy by akamine_chan, podfic by argentumlupine. Short superhero AU.

Pete/Gabe
Two ways Pete and Gabe get married by lalejandra, podfic by reena_jenkins. notfic.

transcribing some notes I took while reading Textual Poachers

... in 2002

Textual Poachers: Television Fans and Participatory Culture - Henry Jenkins

p18: Fans as rebels; reject bourgeois and elitist theories on "good taste" -- on the separation between canonical literature and mass media; anti-institutional, anti-authoritarian

"Fans seemingly blur the boundaries between fact and fiction, speaking of characters as if they had an existence apart from their textual manifestations..."

Fans are deliberately cast as deluded, crazy, and maladjusted so that their radical interpretations of the aesthetic/literary value of TV and other forms of "low" art can be dismissed

pp21-22: Fans internalize criticism; have difficulty justifying their enjoyment of something considered artistically worthless

p24: "[fans] are also acutely and painfully aware that those fictions do not belong to them and that someone else has the power to do things to those characters that are in direct contradiction to the fans' own cultural interests"

academy, canon, authorial intent --> the "correct" method of reading

p48: "the largely female composition of media fandom reflects a historical split within the science fiction fan community between the traditionally male-dominated literary fans and the newer, more feminine style of media fandom."

media fandom began with Star Trek

examines how texts are inevitably reinterpreted by readers; authors view this as disintegration, but the process makes the world of the text take on an independent reality

p60: academic practices of analyzing literature and TV --> objectivity, distance, detachment
popular viewing practices --> identification, emotional involvement
p61: "bourgeois" analytical theory = masculine
popular = feminine

p116: "Fan criticism is the institutionalization of feminine reading practices just as the dominant mode of academic criticism is the institutionalization of masculine reading practices"
-socially, not biologically determined; women's stories are devalued, so they learn to find their stories in the periphery of masculine narratives

p189 "Slash fiction represents a reaction against the construction of male sexuality on television and in pornography"

p190 "Slash breaks as well with the commodification of pornography, offering erotic images that originate in a social context of intimacy and sharing"

p191: considers only male/male slash --> first and more prevalent, although written by and for women 90%

p194: "In slash, both characters can be equally strong and equally vulnerable, equally dominant and equally submissivie, without either quality being permanently linked to their sexuality or their gender"

p205: slash is social commentary on popular constructions and restrictions on male sexuality; acts like Eve Sedgwick's Between Men, removing the barriers to same-sex desire and making explicit the idea of a continuum between friends and lovers

p214: slash explores and explodes "ways male sexuality gets bound to notions of competition, dominance, and violence"

fan fiction is a form of interpretation and analysis

p234: fan music videos
1. "memory palace, encapsulating a complex narrative within a smaller number of highly iconographic shots"
2. or they can function like essays or fan fic; take suggestive images out of context and edit them to make the subtext more obvious (an admitted relationship or denied one--i.e., Troi and Riker, or Data and Yar)
3. to tell a new story like fan fic

fandom = folk culture

qualities of fandom:
1. "particular mode of reception" - fans watch with undivided attention, are both emotionally invested in and critical of the show
2. interpretation and analysis methods: compare/contrast with real life, look at details for hidden meaning, extrapolate from subtext
3. lobbying the producers and networks for certain plot developments and to get cancelled shows back on the air
p278: "Fandom originates, at least in part, as a response to the relative powerlessness of the consumer in relation to powerful institutions of cultural production and circulation"
4. "cultural production": art, fan fic, music videos, filk
p279: "Once TV characters enter into a broader circulation, intrude into our living rooms, pervade the fabric of our society, they belong to their audience and not simply to the artist who originated them"
5. "alternative social community"

since the LJ news....

I have been creating more Fanlore entries for Bandom communities and started a timeline for podfic communities. I tried and failed to connect to my virtual machine Archive Team Warrior thing. I installed virtualbox = no. I installed VMware = no. I left a message on the ArchiveTeam's IRC channel about LiveJournal.

To be honest, I don't think old bandom communities people have forgotten exist are in the greatest danger here. Lots of bandom people already deleted their personal journals and photobucket accounts years ago, leaving devastation in their wake as I look through old picspams and reclists.

supernaturalfic, however, is definitely being deleted after being imported to Dreamwidth. (Fanlore page here.)

Meanwhile, I'm wondering when not!fic first appeared and what the definition of chatfic is. The Yuri on Ice!!! page says it's "fanfiction written in the style of a group chat"

DID YOU KNOW

community owners can import their LJ communities to DW?

also my previous post wouldn't cross-post to LJ even though I accepted the new TOS

my computer just spoke to me?! I don't know what it said.

livejournal: back your shit up

You may have heard LJ's TOS has changed and people are worried and some people are deleting their livejournal accounts. This is distressing to me as a Fanlore editor and fic reader, and I hope no one is planning to start deleting whole communities without advanced warning (?!!?). In the meantime, I've been looking through my old bookmarks and downloaded ljarchive, which lets you get a local copy of your own lj OR (supposedly) any community you are a member of. But it already choked on geeheartmikey, so I don't know how reliable it is. ArchiveTeam has LiveJournal on their to-do list for automatically backing up to the Internet Archive, but 1) I'm not sure they've started yet? 2) It's the Internet Archive, so no journals excluded from search results or marked as 18+ can be archived. (So, you know, no kinkmemes, assuming the Wayback Machine was able to read all the comments in the first place.) On twitter I think I saw anatsuno talking with some people about starting an informal kinkmeme preservation project? Any other preservation projects on people's radars? I notified Fanlore that they have 42K links to livejournal posts that might or might not be on the Wayback Machine, so they're working on that.... AO3 hasn't posted about it, but I swear to you that someone out there really loved that ficlet you posted ten years ago, so consider uploading it to AO3.

Meanwhile, I'll be checking out ArchiveTeam's Warrior software and writing up Fanlore entries on Bandom communities.

eta: I cannot make the warrior virtual machine do the thing. will not connect to the website.

eta2: so far ljarchive has choked on everything except amplificathon, which is already backed up to dw anyway. it keeps giving me errors like this:

System.Xml.XmlException: There are multiple root elements. Line 2, position 2.

2017 update

I continue to be way more active on twitter than here, though post-election I'm thinking Dreamwidth may be a better choice of venue if only more fans would use it. Since finishing bandom big bang I signed up for ITPE and went to Podfication in Minneapolis, where I hung out with fellow podficcers and had a great time. However, after talking to MPH about Fanlore, I came home inspired to write ten million new articles so I sort of forgot to write up a con report for Podfication. Before Podfication was also when I was binge-watching SPN because it was less scary than the real world, but I forgot about SPN too. I'm planning to get back to watching at some point, but the odds of me ever participating in the fandom are slim.

MCRchaeology, wherein I read through old Bandom communities on livejournal and write Fanlore articles about them, has been going well, if slowly. So far I've made pages for chemicalromance, geeheartmikey, mcr_het_fics, mychemicalslash, and yeahchemical. Last week's? Russian server scare made me even more anxious to READ ALL THE COMMS before somebody deleted them out of fear that Russia would actually care about your slash fic. There was already a 50/50 chance that picspams or meta posted to an individual journal were gone.

For ITPE I received a fantastic crossdressing historical AU Frank/Gerard podfic (3 hours!) from opalsong, who has a really nice, clear podficcing voice I don't think I'd heard before: A Lovely Apparition, written by wordslinging. RsCreighton also made me a delightful treat: By the Numbers, written by Shoemaster, wherein Frank is Gerard's accountant. Meanwhile, I recorded A Natural Reaction to Rough-housing by Bexless for duendeverde4. I'd brag about finishing a 3-hour podfic in less than a month, except rscreighton recorded 40+ hours for ITPE???

#ITPE 2016 Dear Podficcer Letter, yay!

Dear Podficcer,

My interests this year are similar to last year's. My fandom is Bandom, specifically: My Chemical Romance (including the members' post-band projects), Mindless Self Indulgence (especially Lindsey Way), and Fall Out Boy. I've also enjoyed pan-Bandom fanfic that included Panic at the Disco and other bands I don't recognize, but my heart belongs to MCR (and Pete, for some reason). My favorite ships are Frank/Gerard, Pete/Patrick, Mikey/Pete, Frank/Mikey, and Gerard/Lindsey. And Gerard and Mikey being BFFs. And Lindsey Way being awesome.

You can see what I've rec'd to date here and on pinboard (mcr, fob).

Things in fic I like include happy endings, humor, pining, AUs (especially science fiction AUs), canon-compliant fic, gender nonconformity, and fusions. Things I don't like include major character death (unless they're resurrected, of course), hockey, cheating, and other unhappy endings. I also tend not to go for PWPs in podfics, but they don't squick me.

Love,
aethel

misc Bandom recs: all happy endings unless otherwise noted

fanart recs are everything I've reblogged on tumblr: mcr fanart, bandom fanart (FOB and LynZ so far)

Fic and podfic:

Gen

Podfic by klb of Forever, Now by harriet_vane. Gerard and Mikey are orphan runaways; Brian takes them in. I have a lot of feelings about the story and about klb's emotionally devastating performance. And there are sequels! (fanfic 2007, podfic August 2011)

RAY GUN by jedusaur. Short Grace-centric Killjoys fic. Not happy: everyone dies. (July 2013)

Pan-Bandom

Supersaturation series by skoosiepants. Fusion with SGA. I don't even know who half of these bands are, and it doesn't matter. (2007-2009)

Pete Wentz: Failiest Ally by girlpearl and melusina. Pete/Gabe, but mostly about Pete being in denial to a ridiculous degree. (April 2012)

Mikey-centric

Away With The Boys In The Band by inlovewithnight. Very amazing and long history of the band with always-a-girl Mikey. I didn't know what the end game ship was going to be, although I really should have, but I read it for the girl!Mikey and mental health stuff so I didn't care. The Gerard & Mikey sibling relationship is also interesting. (June 2011)

Frank/Mikey

Podfic by jenepod of We Used To Be Friends by ladyfoxxx. AU where Gerard never started MCR, Frank became a teacher, and Mikey joined The Used. Frank and Mikey were best friends in high school, but then Frank doesn't hear from Mikey for a long time, and it's even longer before he finds out why. I actually found the premise so upsetting (i.e. realistic) it was difficult to listen to, even though the podfic is well done and the story has a happy ending. (fic July 2012, podfic July 2013)

Frank/Gerard

The Way It Works by anew_leaf. Gerard swears off sex with men; Frank convinces him to change his mind. (August 2007)

An Inexplicable Occurrence of Angels by stele3. AU in which Frank is a fallen angel who turns up after MCR loses its record contract and Gerard is still living in his parents' basement. (December 2007)

Podfic by inkjunket of The Sky-High City by sevenfists. Post-band story written pre Danger Days. Frank is depressed and goes to stay with Gerard in California. The story is so jossed at this point that it's barely recognizable, but it's still cute. (fic August 2007, podfic March 2009)

Podfic by klb of The Anatomy of a Fall by novembersmith. 13 hours long high school/ghost AU with lots of plot and a happy ending, but ghost AU means one of the characters is still deadish, so. I cried. (fic June 2010, podfic January 2013)

Podfic by argentumlupine of Can Never Wrong This Right by theopteryx. historical academic Indiana Jones-ish AU with temporary bonding and lots of pining. Frank is Gerard's TA. (fic July 2010, podfic January 2013)

The Heart You Need by flyby. How the Killjoys became the Killjoys....if the Killjoys were telepathic space pirates. Very long, and a bit slow in the beginning, but with a summary like that, obviously I had to read it. (August 2013)

Frank Iero and Gerard Way, more known as frnk and gwhiz138, are famous Youtubers AU gifset series by spaceboyfrnk (June 2015)

Gerard Way/Lindsey Way

Asimov, the Deleted Scenes, plus sequel, by stele3. Lindsey meets inventor!Gerard and all his little robot friends. (March 2009)

Gerard Way/Patrick Stump

Podfic by inkjunket of Sing Ourselves to Sleep by Dira Sudis. Gerard and Patrick have a special moment during Warped Tour. The podfic was the first MCR podfic posted to the Audiofic Archive! (podfic October 2007)

Patrick Stump/Pete Wentz

Podfic by paraka of There and Gone by ladyfoxxx. Spy AU. Suspenseful angst with a happy ending. Paraka's use of music between scenes worked really well, although it turned out that the song fit so well because it was the original inspiration for the fic. Um, but it was a good aural experience just the same. (fic November 2010; podfic November 2013)

Podfic by argentumlupine of Accidents Will Happen by melusina. Bakery AU in which Pete accidentally filled out the wrong form and wound up married to his business partner. (fic February 2015; podfic December 2015)

sing like silver bells do by the_ragnarok. Asexual relationship. (June 2015)

Omegalomaniac by the_ragnarok. A/B/O but not porny heat fic. Well, maybe a little. Mainly it's a meta exploration of people who don't fit neatly into the A/B/O ternary! plus a side-order of anti-omega-sexism. And Fall Out Boy on tour. (August 2015)

Brendon Urie/Spencer Smith

There Should Be A Name For Something Like This by skoosiepants. cute tourfic (March 2007)

Sweater Vests series by disarm_d. Mid-20th century British university AU. Angst and sweater vests. Unresolved ending. (2007-2008)

Podfic by pennyplainknits of If Music Be The Food Of Love (I'll Have The Veggie Burger) by sunsetmog. Basically the origin story of P!atD, but slashier and read in Penny's British accent :) Actually, everything I know about P!atD I learned from fanfic, so don't quote me on that. (fic 2008, podfic 2011)

Podfic by cee_m of the Panties and Lip Gloss series by sunsetmog. (fic 2012, podfic 2013)

Bitchin Party con report

I used to go to all the panels at cons and take detailed notes and then go home and write them up ASAP. Then I decided that I was missing the entire point of cons and stopped doing that. I did actually jot down a few things at Bitchin Party this year, but I'm not sure what to make of them. For example: keerawa talking about writing John's healing cock as angsty -- "Who do I heal with my cock?!" That might have been in the inverted tropes panel.

Anyway, in April I attended my second Pacificon aka Bitchin Party aka "Pacific Writers' Conference" (the "official" printable name as given to the hotel). For the second time, Seattle was warm(er) and sunny, in direct contrast to Massachusetts; my flight home was delayed due to a snowstorm in Boston, so I hung out in the airport with akamine_chan and argentumlupine, later joined by lucifuge5 and mizface(?). romantical/Laura was the saint who made multiple trips to the airport to drop us off. So at this con I talked to lots of Bandom fans and other people I hadn't talked to before, but may or may not have been at the previous Pacificon. I also saw people I remembered from previous cons. But this was the last Pacificon, so I'll probably never see most of them again. So that's depressing.

A week ago I posted my podfic of the second fic in Bexless's Unholyverse trilogy at AO3: staring through the demons. The final version was 5 hours, pretty long for podfic by me, though definitely not the longest Bandom podfic I've listened to. :)
