So, the problem with being away for a long time is knowing where to start once you get back.

I jumped back in with the intention of getting really active in Star Trek fandom, I immediately friended a bunch of cool new people on the [personal profile] wherenowoman friending meme (hi, new friends!), and then a combination of real life obligations and anxiety about oh-no-where-do-I-even-begin-and-I-still-haven't-replied-to-that-person's-comment-from-six-months-ago kinda made me stall out for a while.

So, uh...yeah.

Anyway! Here's where I've been fannishly lately! (No spoilers)


KISSES 3 a multifandom f/f podfic fest
Come join us for our 3rd annual podfic-centric celebration of the International Day of Femmeslash! Click here for more information or visit [community profile] audiofemme

This is our third year hosting KISSES Fest. It was pretty low-key the first year, but we got a great response last year and had a lot of fun with it. If you like femslash and you like podfic (or if maybe you only like one but you're intrigued by the other, hmm?), you should totally come contributed a short Peck on the Lips to our short podfic compliation, and/or a longer Makeout Session during open posting on International Day of Femslash (July 20th.) I'm doing both. Come join us!

Star Trek )

Iron Man 3 )

Orphan Black )

Hannibal )

Supernatural )

Generation Kill )

Teen Wolf )

I started to write about Man Of Steel next, but I never expected to feel fannish about it in the first place and I don't have anything nice to say, so I just won't.

So far this year I've also watched all of In the FleshDeadwood and the first two seasons of Game of Thrones (but I've already been spoiled for the end of S3) and really enjoyed them all. I haven't made much podfic, but I have made a whole lot of podfic covers. I still don't really know what I'm doing, but I think I'm getting better. I'll post some of my favorites in the next couple of weeks.

Can you tell from this post that I'm underemployed right now? Though, to be fair, even when I was doing full time grad school with a part time job, I still watched an ungodly amount of television. I also read the entire Vorkosigan series in grad school. I don't know where the time came from, but I managed it.

Okay, that's enough for now. In the next few days I'll aim at posting some recs and some of my new podfic covers. Stay frosty, everyone.
