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:

With the increasing number of podfics out there, it can sometimes be hard to navigate to find the ones that best suit you. Recs are great way to find podfics well-loved by others or share the gems you already know and love. To find out more information on podfic and podfic recs, check out Pod Aware on DW, LJ or Tumblr.

My podfic recs for today follow a theme: podficcers with soothing bedtime-story voices reading podfic I listen to at bed time. (I listen to pretty much everything at bed time, but some of it isn't really suitable for peaceful slumber. FayJay's Lost In Space (and time) is guaranteed to jolt me awake partway through. See what I did there? Yeah, I sneaked in a rec that didn't fit the theme.)

[personal profile] anatsuno reading Good Intentions by Helen (Teen Wolf)

[personal profile] fire_juggler reading Open the Door by Renay (Teen Wolf)

[personal profile] general_jinjur reading Four Minor Interludes for the Solo Violin by Katie Forsythe (Sherlock Holmes)

[personal profile] klb reading you make my heart beat (faster) by novembersmith (Teen Wolf)

[personal profile] keerawa reading her own work, Black Ice (Due South)

[personal profile] revolutionaryjo reading Drastically Redefining Protocol by rageprufrock (Merlin) or You'll Get There In The End (It Just Takes A While) by seperis (Star Trek Reboot). Man, I just realized she also did But I Still Have Dreams by Jerakeen (American Idol), which I never put on my mp3 player until just now.

[personal profile] sli (slidellra) reading Flying Blind by Speranza. (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.

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.

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!

Wonderful Times on the Enterprise by ImaginarySanity. This upbeat gen vid is objectively hilarious. Enterprise=crack den.

I recorded a few podfics and was planning to make more, but got side-tracked by Doctor Who (season three finale was amazing!) and so never posted them. Here is the first one I made:

And now, the news from Delicious: I have over a hundred bookmarks tagged "new", none of which I've recced since I got a delicious account and changed fandoms a few times. Herein I try to remember why I saved them:

Deriving the Prime by Rageprufrock. The only House fic I've ever read, and it's a graphic threesome. I probably didn't rec this before because it's very NC-17, but like all good threesome stories, it's got interesting character dynamics.

HP fanart: Which one, sir?. Sirius and Remus.

The Pegasus Tinies: A Dreadful Abecedarium, with Selected Illustrations. argosy and kiden. SGA fanart.
The Angriest John in the World. Speranza. fanart. I might have mentioned this one before.
The Prince of Atlantis by prudentia. Written By The Victors fanart done in the style of a stained-glass window.
The Physics of Flying by steammmpunk. Wings and excellent highlights!
Downtime by crysothemis. John/Rodney watercolor.
You Only Ever Lose One by Thigh Holster. The John/Rodney sock AU.

due South. Mostly Fraser/Kowalski

Mixing by Slidellra. The archivist from "The Ladies' Man" puts in an appearance (something she should do more often).
Sliding by Sage. Post-COTW tentfic.
The Box by Salieri. Short and excellent.

Real Worlds by Salieri, with accompanying Space!Mountie recruitment posters. A sequel to Real Boys, the Blade Runner/cyberpunk AU. So, I have linked to Real Boys before, but I neglected to mention that a) it is awesome and b) it provides a satisfactory answer to the question my father asked when he and I were discussing Fraser's characterization in the series. My father said that the way Fraser was introduced in the pilot suggests that he had simply popped into existence the moment his father was murdered. Why, he asked, did Fraser move into his father's cabin? Did he not have a place to live already? "He is inscrutable" was my father's conclusion. (Meanwhile, my aunt thought that Fraser was not so much inscrutable as wooden and boring and that Paul Gross's performance was uninspiring. She thinks this about every Paul Gross role that is not Geoffrey Tennant.)

I don't remember bookmarking some of these, but they're all Fraser/Kowalski, either angsty fluff or humor, and potentially NC-17, I think:

Bright Red, and Moving Fast by boombangbing (superhero AU)
Real Boys (A Chip Off the Old Blog) by Salieri (Blade Runner AU)
History by joandarck
Suited by joandarck
Inked by lalejandra
Watershed by Nifra Idril
Like Some Strange Shadow by cherryice
Figure of Speech by estrella30
A House is Not a Home by justbreathe
Shades of Ray by Miriam Heddy

I found most of these stories through [ profile] ds_recsredux and cimorene's Due South recs. Both sites have many more links than the reccers I was using before, [ profile] makesmewannadie and [ profile] thefourthvine, but trade in volume guilty pleasures (or pleasureless guilt, depending on your tastes).

More deliciously self-indulgent Due South fic, all Fraser/Kowalski:

Fait Accompli by Fearless Diva
Heavy Bag by Kat Allison
Unguarded Protectorate by Mairead Triste and Bone
Parental Guidance by Alanna, Starfish, and Kass
Leaving Normal by china shop
It's Like This Old Inuvit Story I Knew by Rageprufrock
Verse Chorus Verse by Punk

I need to take a break from reading DS. I may have reached my limit on tentfic.
