nickelmountain: (suntory time)
I've made six Fringe podfics to date, so here are six shiny new covers to go with them. A couple of these covers are among my favorites so far. A warning - the sixth cover is mildly NSFW.

You know what I discovered while I was making these covers? I discovered that doing a Google image search for Anna Torv is an exceptionally pleasant way to spend an afternoon. Her face, you guys. Her face.

Actually, the same goes for Jasika Nicole. Hmm.

I may need to go find myself some more Astrid/Olivia. I haven't read any new Fringe fic since S5 stomped all over my heart, but Astrid/Olivia sounds really good to me right now.

Anyway. Here they are:


Links to podfic & text
Characters: Olivia Dunham/Peter Bishop, Walter Bishop
Summary: "It starts like this." Spoilers through early S2.


Links to podfic & text
Characters: Olivia Dunham/Peter Bishop, Astrid Farnsworth, Walter Bishop
Summary: "It is hard to let go of what might have been, especially when it's been presented in the flesh." Spoilers through mid S3.


Links to podfic & text
Characters: Olivia Dunham/Astrid Farnsworth, with references to red!Olivia and red!Astrid
Summary: "Set post-3x09 Marionette to the tune of care, equations, untainted, comfort, lab time, probabilities, milkshake, numbers, desire, something new, and intervention."


Links to podfic & text
Characters: Astrid Farnsworth & Walter Bishop, with Gene the cow
Summary: "Astrid didn't want to be Walter Bishop's lab assistant. Unfortunately, neither did anyone else." Set during early S1.


Links to podfic & text
Characters: Olivia Dunham/Olivia Dunham (red!/!blue!)
Summary: "They need each other." S3.




...and here's the mildly NSFW one:





Links to podfic & text
Characters: Olivia Dunham/Emily Prentiss (crossover with Criminal Minds)
Summary: "Sometimes they win." No spoilers for any season of either show.

If you're into podfic and femslash and you haven't already checked out KISSES Fest at [community profile] audiofemme, I highly recommend heading over there. Okay, so, as one of the mods I might be sort of biased about this, but...between the <5 minute A Peck on the Lips compilation and the >5 minute Makeout Sessions, there is a seriously excellent selection of f/f podfic at the comm. 

I'm still working on my submission for Makeout Sessions (I know, I'm super late - I got seriously podblocked by the heat), but I did manage to finish 5 short podfics for A Peck on the Lips. I recommend listening to the entire compilation, but if you're interested, my contributions are listed below.

nickelmountain: (waffles are amazing)
I recorded six short podfics for the Awesome Ladies Podfic Anthology II at [livejournal.com profile] halfamoon this year. Serious props are due to all the mods and betas involved in putting this thing together, and I strongly encourage all of you to set aside some time to really look at that cover art. It's amazing.

I haven't had the chance to listen to the anthology yet, but I'm so excited to see so many incredible readers voicing the work of so many amazing authors. I absolutely loved listening to last year's anthology, and I cannot wait to dive into this year's.

If you listen closely to the stories that I chose this year, you might determine: a) that I'm really into waffles, or; b) that I'm really into canons in which terrible, violent acts are inflicted on women. I guess both must be true. I love waffles and female friendship (and female more-than-friendship), but I'm also really interested in stories of survival and resilience. I love tough-minded women, and I love them all the more for their flaws, their hurts, and their humanity.

The stories are listed below. Links to the entire anthology in m4b and mp3 format are available through the main post (linked to above), as are links to all the individual mp3s. The links below are to the mp3s on box.com, where you can download or stream any of these podfics.


I'm running a race and these are the fics I read )


It was interesting to notice the pattern in my preferences exemplified by these six podfics. I'd never really thought much about exactly how much the theme of violence against women threads through so many of my favorite shows, books, and movies. Maybe, as Emily Prentiss might point out, it's just that violence against women is ubiquitous. Maybe it's not that I like stories in which women get hurt - maybe it's that there are so few out there in which women don't get hurt. Maybe that's exactly why I'm so in love with Leslie Knope. She's smart and funny and capable, and she pursues her goals with a dogged feminism and optimism that defies you not to root for her. Don't get me wrong, I like stories in which women survive and thrive, but there's something so refreshing about a woman like Leslie, whose success story doesn't have to include a chapter in which she overcomes violence and pain. 

Anyway. These thoughts are half-formed, and need more time to gel. I'll write more about this later. I hope you like these six stories as much as I did, and I encourage you to check out the entire anthology. Awesome Ladies are awesome, indeed.
