Ahhh you guys! [personal profile] reena_jenkins recorded Five Times Spencer Wished Brendon Would Reconsider Nudism, and it's AWESOME. She's having SO MUCH FUN with Spencer's exasperation (I'm listening to the streaming version right now and giggling my face off), and it's clear and loud and just lovely all around. BEST surprise, basically!

So if you like naked Brendon, Panic 1.0 making sex noises to annoy each other, and pining, frustrated Spencer ... wait, does anyone not like those things? PODFIC TIME, anyway, is what I'm saying. \o/ \o/ \o/

ETA: Actually, okay, this is good timing for a podfic story. SO. I have been trying to explain the concept of fandom (and fic, and transformative works in general, and frankly just "internet-talking to people you don't already know") to one of my partners. I am not making much headway, as she has ZERO frame of reference for any of it. F'r'nstance, I was trying to explain how much I wrote last year, but the number of words meant nothing to her, so I said "it's the equivalent of 4-5 novels." So now she's under the impression that I write books. Every time I mention a story, she says "so you wrote another book?" or "You should publish your books!" Me: /o\ /o\

SO yesterday I got this great note on twitter from [personal profile] isweedan, who recorded Ridiculous Adam/Ryan notfic, showing me the awesome new cover art that the aforementioned [personal profile] reena_jenkins just made for it. So I open that link while my partner's in my office, and then I have to explain podfic to her, too.

Her: "So they just ... make audiobooks of your books?"
Me: "Sort of! Yes! It's awesome!"
Her: "Isn't that a copyright violation?"
Me: "Uhhh not in my opinion. Also, I'd be a hella hypocrite to think so."
Her: "So how do they find your stories, do you post them to their websites?"
Me: "I post them to a central archive, plus mostly it's my friends recording my stuff, and vice versa."
Her: "Wait, you do this too?"
Me: "Yeah. ::demonstrates briefly with iPhone and a Merlin story I have open in a tab::"
Her: "But you said there are millions and millions of these stories, so how do they pick yours?"

And ofc the real answer to that is I DON'T KNOW BUT IT'S AMAZING. <333333 (She remains suspicious of podficcers' motives, lol. I'M WORKING ON IT.)

So the fabulous [personal profile] mistresscurvy has a birthday today! My original plan was to record some podfic for her and to write something for her, but my writing mojo is basically dead right now, so only one of those things happened. STILL THOUGH.

I don't know if y'all have read Eleven Hipsters Playing? But you SHOULD, oh man. It's one of the lovelier AUs I've had the pleasure to read, and even if you don't know the canon (2011's The Eagle movie), you won't be lost. I love the way Marcus and Esca just slot into the Brooklyn scene, and the way their canonical power dynamics play out in the fic. It's not, at 3K, an epic, but there's a lot there.

ALSO, [personal profile] mistresscurvy is a trained theatre actor, and she gave me lots and lots and lots and lots of incredibly useful podfic-performance advice recently, SO. I think this one's an improvement on the last. (Plus my editing skills are getting better--there's a couple of bits in here where I cut two versions together in the middle of a WORD, and I can't, on repeated listens, detect the seam. Yay Audacity!)

SUCH a lovely lovely birthday. It's a bit too easy to get down at the mouth while I'm jobhunting, but today was a great reminder that I have wonderful, fun, supportive friends and family, and that makes all the difference in the world.

I met my mother in Niagara Falls (splitting the distance between us, although she had to go through customs), and we had a lovely lunch, a great walk around, and then some decadent desserts. It was just the kind of simple, relaxing day we both needed, and I'm so glad she suggested it.

And we took lots and lots of photos, of which I will only subject y'all to this one, in which my most-recently knit Bohus sweater makes an appearance (I'm rather proud of it, and it kept me nice and warm). Photo! )

I also had a nice long phone chat with my best friend, and I'm sure I'm about to have some sister phone calls as well.

And all of that was MORE than enough happiness for one day, but then on my way back to Toronto I got a notification in my email that a certain awesome ex of mine had sent me a gift story (yay AO3!), based on a conversation we had the other day about how awesome a story about non-sexual Frank puppyplay, where Jamia takes care of him alongside the (other) dogs, would be. SPOILER ALERT: IT IS INDEED AWESOME. Here it is: Dog Days, by the always-fantastic [personal profile] mistresscurvy. <33333 You're the best, bb.
ETA: aww and she posted this, too. BEST.


ETA II: OMG OMG OMG YOU GUYS. THE BEST BETA IN THE ENTIRE UNIVERSE IS APPARENTLY TRYING TO MAKE ME FALL OVER WITH ALL THE JOY TODAY, BECAUSE BECAUSE PODFIC! OF MY RIDICULOUS NOTFIC ABOUT ADAM LAMBERT AND RYAN ROSS AND ALL THE SCARVES! YOU CAN DOWNLOAD IT HERE, omg omg I am going to go listen to it RIGHT NOW
