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:

Both of these were posted in 2008, but I rewatched them today:

1. I'm Your Man by Charmax. Multifandom cross-dressing femslash extravaganza. Why has no one mentioned that there were so many movies with female cross-dressers? I'm pretty sure I've seen only half of the source footage in this vid.

2. OMG! by [livejournal.com profile] obsessive24. Doctor Who/Torchwood vid about the companions who travel with the Doctor, recced the other day by [livejournal.com profile] thefourthvine. The soundtrack alone is worth watching the vid: a cover of "Oh My God" by the Kaiser Chiefs performed by a female singer--far superior to the version I found on last.fm. In fact, just hearing the line "It don't matter to me" as sung in a female British voice is worth it. Anyway, the funniest aspect of the vid is that the soundtrack is clearly a bootlegged copy that includes a male dj who periodically interrupts the music "to prevent bootleggers," but the vid successfully incorporates the "corruption" of the audio track by presenting it visually as if Captain Jack/Torchwood is just being an attention whore. (I was going to say something like Torchwood=The Man=mainstream media corporation=taking control of the narrative=dj's copyright concerns=>subverted visually and audibly by female narrative agency=>thingy! But "Jack=attention whore" is more to the point.) You will like the part where the dj says, "He's a very good friend of mine. Such a good friend!"

I've spent the last few days reading Terry Pratchett novels*, going for walks in the snow, and engaging in strategic maneuvers to wrest control of the one networked computer here in order to read a story rec'd on [livejournal.com profile] crack_van: Get Loved, Make More, Try to Stay Alive by Dira Sudis. (Getting up before noon usually works.) I failed to notice that the aforementioned fanfic was a 66,000-word MPREG novel until I was hopelessly entangled in the plot and felt compelled to see it through to the bitter end. I was prepared to be very angry if the end was bitter--I'd shed enough tears over the bitter middle--but I can now recommend this story with a clean conscience. Jack/Ianto MPREG time travel kidfic epics aren't as cheesy as you would think!

*I've never met a Pratchett novel I didn't like, but I'd recommend Guards, Guards! (what I'm reading now) or Night Watch (what I just finished reading).
