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:

list o podfic )

DUE SOUTH
Better Off by kuwdora. An unusual Due South Fraser/Kowalski vid, from Fraser's point of view. Fraser thinks Ray would be better off with him. The melody of the song choice lends the vid an unquantifiable air of pathos, while the lyrics paint a disturbing picture of possessiveness. Actually, every time I watch this vid, it tells me a slightly different, slightly creepier story.

HEROES
Filthy/Gorgeous by kuwdora. A fast-paced Heroes vid. Everyone wants a piece of Peter Petrelli. I found the vid hilarious; I guess that makes me a sadist.

STAR TREK
Sleeping with Ghosts by butterfly. A transgenerational (TOS/Reboot) Kirk/Spock vid. Soulmates never die. It's quite moving, as well as visually interesting--pretty color filters!

STAR TREK TOS
Wonderful Times on the Enterprise by ImaginarySanity. This upbeat gen vid is objectively hilarious. Enterprise=crack den.
aethel: (spock - cheer up)
RPS!
D: by Rageprufrock. a dish of cracktastic Chris Pine/Zachary Quinto humor fic. I haven't read any other Reboot RPS yet, so I don't know how the characterizations compare, but here the actors are all a reflection of their on-screen characters. For example, Zach is more emotional, but still basically a woobie.

VIDEO GOODNESS (all on youtube)
Answer Me by ImaginarySanity and CaptainQuirk. Reboot. Psychedelic remix vid with pretty colors and a Trekified techno theme.
Friends by tomfooltook28. a cute Reboot Kirk/McCoy friendship vid with excellent song choice.
The Nipple Pinch by ImaginarySanity. Meta in video form on the Kirk/Spock "nipple pinch" scene in classic Trek. Funny!
1995 Trek convention footage, featuring the "big three". DeForest Kelley was awesome!
When I'm 64 by T. Jonesy and Killa. Old-school Kirk/Spock vid.

FANFIC
Small Steps by anamatics. Kirk/Spock pre-slash. Alas, a WIP.
Lunch and Other Obscenities by Rheanna. Gaila and Uhura, cross-cultural misunderstandings. With excellent fanart.
You're Gonna Make It After All by igrockspock. Gaila genfic set during her first year at the Academy. More cross-cultural misunderstandings!
Communications series by screamlet. Kirk/Spock, Spock/Uhura, and shore leave hijinks.

META
Star Trek reboot: the soundtrack (or, why it didn't sound quite right) by kate. On how technical music things in the different Star Trek themes are used to create different moods. Apparently, the sound of space exploration is a fourth!

Genfic
How to Avoid Kicking Puppies and Other Valuable Lessons in Leadership by [livejournal.com profile] sparky77. Kirk muddles along.
Only the Good Die Young by [livejournal.com profile] _seven_crows. Everyone harps on Chekhov's youth, much to his annoyance.
Paradise Found by [livejournal.com profile] skywaterblue. All About Gaila.

Kirk/Spock
We Reach Our Apogee Slowly by [livejournal.com profile] kowaiyoukai. WIP.
Taking the slower path (we'll get there in the end) by [livejournal.com profile] black_eyedgirl. pre-slash.
Going Mental by Keelywolfe. Also Kirk/Spock Prime.

Kirk/Spock Prime, or, Accidental Bonding Fic Lovers Anonymous
And Cried Out His Name in Joy by [livejournal.com profile] pervyficgirl. There's a cave.

BONUS
Star Trek in 47 seconds. cracktastic live-action youtube video.
The Picard Song. a bit long, but interesting; it syncs Picard's dialogue with techno music.
aethel: (xena/gabrielle gazing)
Today I saw Star Trek again and made myself a gin and tonic. Both were as awesome as I remembered. The movie's plot holes and bad science were still evident, but somehow they still didn't matter. minor spoilers )

In some ways, it seemed the whole movie was set up to say, "We're starting over, and this time we're going to do it RIGHT!" I wonder if that is the reason that people are so excited about the fandom now, that there's this sense that we've finally seen the Star Trek that exists in our imaginations.

Or maybe that's just the gin talking.

Star Trek recs, all reboot!Trek because the old!Trek I've started reading is too flowery for my taste. (And I'm not sure I want to picture Leonard Nimoy doing some of the things that get written about.)

What She Wants by strangeallure. Spock/Uhura.
What We Don't Talk About by [personal profile] ellen_fremedon. Spock/Uhura.
cut and fucking paste and edit by crimsonclad. Kirk crackfic.
How To Win Friends and Influence Vulcans by [personal profile] green. gen.
