Dear Podficcer,

My main fandom at this point is still 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, 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 being awesome.

I am also into Star Trek, specifically AOS. In 2009-2010 I read *all* the Kirk/Spock, but now I'm discovering via podfic that Kirk/Bones is excellent and I would love to hear more.

I know of Batman and his Batfamily members mainly through podfic and tumblr memes, but I've enjoyed everything I've heard so far! I think comics canon is what I've been seeing/hearing, but I haven't actually read the comics. (Netflix doesn't seem to have any of the Batman-adjacent cartoons??)

I have also just started watching Daredevil and am enjoying Matt, Karen, and Foggy's banter. My only knowledge of the fanfic is actually a group podfic I participated in recently, but it was fun, and I would love to hear more.

Things in fic I like include happy endings, humor, pining, AUs (especially: robots, space, supernatural), canon-compliant fic (Star Trek is already set in space!), genderfuckery, and fusions. Things I don't like include major character death (unless they're resurrected, of course), hockey, on-screen noncon, infidelity, and other unhappy endings. I also tend not to go for PWPs in podfics, but they don't squick me.

Things in podfic I like include you reading me a story! Thank you!!

You can see what I've rec'd to date here and on pinboard, if you want ideas...

Love,
aethel

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???

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,

Dear Podficcer,

ITPE, yay! This year I love only My Chemical Romance and Lindsey Way and crossovers with Fall Out Boy so Pete Wentz can have a crush on Mikey. Other things I love: all the MCR albums, Hesitant Alien, and "This Song Is About Being Chased By Monsters" by Leathermouth. I just got into Bandom in June. So far my favorite ships are Gerard/Frank, Frank/Mikey, Mikey/Pete Wentz, and Gerard/Lindsey. And Gerard and Mikey being BFFs. And Mikey/Ray is good too. I am also here for Lindsey Way being awesome and having any kind of happy ending she wants: femslash, canon het, gen adventures with MSI, whatever.

You can see what I've rec'd to date here and on pinboard. I'm currently compiling another MCR rec post.

Things in fic I like include happy endings, humor, AUs, canon-compliant fic, gender nonconformity, fusions, secret tragic unnecessary mutual pining, anything IN SPACE or with ROBOTS. (Tragically pining gender nonconforming robots in space??) Things I don't like include major character death, hockey, cheating, and other unhappy endings. I also tend not to go for PWPs in podfics, but they don't squick me.

Love,
aethel

Dear Podficcer,

ITPE, yay! This year I love only One Direction and Nick Grimshaw/Radio 1. Sorry about that. HOWEVER, although I haven't read fic for all ships yet, I haven't read any slash ship I didn't like, so take your pick. So far my favorites are Harry/Niall, Liam/Louis, Liam/Zayn, Nick/Harry, and Nick/Louis. Harry/Louis, Harry/Zayn, and Harry/Liam are good too. I'd probably like anything Niall-centric, too. And Nick and friends. And ships with other people outside 1D could work. I also think I would like more intersections with Perrie and Little Mix (I haven't looked into that fandom beyond seeing the sadly low numbers on AO3).

You can see what I've recced to date here and on pinboard.

Things in fic I like include happy endings, humor, AUs, canon-compliant fic, always-a-girl femslash, crossovers, fusions, secret tragic unnecessary mutual pining, anything IN SPACE. Things I don't like include major character death, hockey, cheating, and other unhappy endings. I also tend not to go for PWPs in podfics, but they don't squick me.

Dear Podficcer,

Hey, so I probably made your life difficult by picking a bunch of small fandoms and a rarepair in Teen Wolf even though I also ship Sterek. But you can still do Sterek! Oh, and I was into Stisaac for a half a second, but then forgot. When I read TW RPF, I was reading Dylan O'Brien/Tyler Hoechlin, but I could be sold on any combination of actors.

Although I read almost exclusively slash, I also really enjoy gen podfics. Or het in Discworld. I just reread Guards! Guards! and decided that I needed more Sam/Sybil. Things I like in any medium include happy endings, humor, and AUs. Things I really like in podfic are things I didn't know you could do with podfic until somebody does them. But the main thing I like is being read to.

Things I avoid in fic include major character death*, cheating, and other miserable endings. In podfic I also tend not to go for PWPs, but they don't squick me.

I saved some recs on my pinboard account, though often I find fic because the podfic was posted to Amplificathon. :/

Love,
aethel
