Podfic covers: Various fandoms

Here's a few more. There are still a couple of others I haven't posted here yet (including another Doctor Who), but I'm not totally happy with them and may end up making another attempt with them first. This is my last batch to post here until I either have new podfics or I've fixed some of my older covers.

I was trying stuff out with the first two especially. The Doctor Who works better than the SG1, but I feel okay about both of them. Maybe I will fix Don't Tell someday, too, though.

In other news, KISSES Fest opens on Saturday! I'm spending today compiling the Peck on the Lips compilation and finishing up my contribution to Makeout Sessions. Not a bad excuse for staying in an air conditioned room all day. :P

Seriously, y'all, this heat is bad. If you're living in a region affected by this heat wave, take care.

Podfic covers: Various small fandoms

We're down to the odds and ends here. Just a couple more posts. These are all really small fandom podfics. I probably won't ever record anything else in Dexter or Ginger Snaps, but I'd love to do more with The City & The City, Friday Night Lights, and Fright Night. The covers for Bright Yellow Sky and Pluck are both second or third attempts.

Fandom: The City & The City (China Mieville)
Characters: Mahalia Geary, David Bowden, Yolanda Rodriguez
Summary: Mahalia has the room on the corner, less because she'd asked for it than because nobody else had wanted it. The view is nothing special: no neon, no dazzling architecture, no illicitly schizophrenic vista of the cities—nothing particularly Ul Qoman at all.

Fandom: Dexter
Characters: Dexter Morgan, Brian Moser, Debra Morgan
Summary: We haven't met, but I killed someone you passed in the street once.

Links to podfic & text
Fandom: Friday Night Lights
Characters: Jess Merriweather, Vince Howard, Landry Clarke, and Vernon, Caleb, Darius, and Andre Merriweather
Summary: You just gotta keep doing it, okay, just keep doing it over and over, do it thousands of times, 'cause you'll get that muscle memory. Just y'know, just forget about the guys, the big guys charging at you, and the fans, the chaos, just like, zone in, inside yourself and forget it all, let it all, the chaos, just let it go. Just let it go, you know?

Fandom: Fright Night (2011)
Characters: Charley Brewster/Jerry
Summary: Charley's friend has been turned and now his neighbor is dead. Charley goes back in for the kill. It doesn't go as well as he'd planned.

Fandom: Ginger Snaps (2000)
Characters: Ginger Fitzgerald/Brigitte Fitzgerald
Summary: Ginger's wants have never been anything but dangerous.

Podfic covers: TSCC

...and here are some covers to go with the six Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles podfics I've posted to date.

I actually have a seventh cover ready to go, but I haven't gotten around to recording the podfic yet. Soon, I hope. :/

Podfic covers: Fringe

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:

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

Podfic covers: Supernatural

I've been teaching myself how to use GIMP. All of my podfics now have podfic covers, and I think some of them are actually pretty decent now. (I still don't know what I'm doing, though.) Below are all the new Supernatural covers I've made. They've been up on AO3 with the links to the podfics for a while, but until now I haven't posted any of these covers on my journal before.


Links to podfic and text
Characters: Ellen and Jo Harvelle
Summary: "There was no choice."
This is the second version I've made of this cover. The first was an early experiment with GIMP. :P

Links to podfic & text
Characters: John, Dean, and Sam Winchester
Summary: "He just can’t drive anymore until he sits in some air conditioning for five goddamn minutes and cools down, literally and figuratively, before he accidentally murders one of his kids."
Also a second attempt.

Links to podfic & text
Characters: Claire Novak, Castiel, Dean Winchester
Summary: "The world changes, and Claire goes searching for her father. Or, barring him, Castiel. What she finds is neither." (End!verse)
