As I'm pretty sure everyone who owns an internet is aware, megaupload got killed off a few weeks back. Something about online piracy, I think....(though, how they got all the pirates to stand in a line like that and just be arrested, I do not know... *rimshot*). If you hadn't noticed this yet, well, here's what you'll get every time you click on a podfic link that let back to megaupload:
So, since megaupload is down forever, and boxnet is a prissy bitch who plays hard to get most of the month (HINT: boxnet bandwidth resets on the first of the month, every month. If you can hold out that long, feel free to drop by what few podfics I've got hosted over there on February 1st, March 1st, April 1st....for that one day a month you'll actually be able to grab anything over there), I've begun the long and arduous task of reuploading everything. That's right: all my podfics, all the way back to August of 2010, all 250 or so that are living on my external harddrive..... they're all going to go back up on the internet. I'll be dumping them at boxnet (for the streaming option), at mediafire (for the downloading without bandwidth limits option), and at paraka's site (if I ever figure out all this Actually Knowing Things About Computers business). After that, I'll be fixing all the links, everywhere I posted (here, there, and everywhere).
HOWEVER, THIS WILL TAKE TIME. LOTS AND LOTS OF TIME. WE'RE TALKING, AEONS AND EPOCHS OF TIME. Please be patient with me - I'm incompetent on the best days, and this has not been my very best day. Feel free to leave a comment over here if you've come across a podfic of mine that you would like bumped up to the front of the re-uploading queue (otherwise, they're going up alphabetically by fandom). Happy listening!
I signed up for au_bingo!
I'm pretty excited, actually: I've been in a bit of a porn-rut lately, and this challenge should be just the kick in the pants that I need to start recording some stories that aren't all naked, all the time...
( My AU_Bingo cardCollapse )
Additionally, I've signed up for podfic_bingo! I might be even more excited for this one - and I've made a personal goal to record at least one podfic that fills an entire line by itself. Mwahaahhaha....

Annnnnd, because I blacked out my first card, I have a SECOND podfic_bingo card (to be finished by December, I think?)

Screaming Down The Starlit Sky [the abridged fanmix]
A note to the listeners: The first ten parts of this ‘verse form one continuous story arc. The next four stories are codas to that arc, and require knowledge of it to be best enjoyed. The last story is part of the general vampire universe but not the main story arc; no knowledge of the previous parts are necessary for enjoyment. Happy listening!
Spitting Images, written by netgirl_y2k, is full of wibbly-wobbly timey-wimey stuff. And also regeneration-related madness. And running. And daleks. And more running. And more regeneration-related madness. And wonderfulness, which you really want to listen to. Right now. Because Donna Noble as the Doctor, the Doctor as Donna Noble, Donna who is the Doctor who is Donna, is fantastic.
This podfic is fourteen minutes long (1777 words, podtor_who folks!), and can be downloaded as an mp3 right over here (thanks, paraka, for hosting me!) OR you can stream the story by clicking above. Keep swinging by podtor_who all month long for even more Doctor Who podfic, and happy listening!
The story is nine and a half minutes long (1164 words, which meets the podtor_who minumum). You can download the podfic as an mp3 right over here (thank you, paraka, for hosting me!) OR you can stream the story by clicking above. Don't forget, podtor_who is running until the end of the month - and there's still time for you to sign up, if you want to record a podfic!
The Care and Feeding of Tiny Humans (and slightly larger Time Lords), written by netgirl_y2k (who has Blanket Permission to Podfic, which is awesome) is an Eleven and Amelia Pond fic of childhood adventure and interplanetary excitement. See, you know how in canon the Doctor promised Amelia that he'd be right back, but it actually took him almost two decades to make his way back to her garden shed? Well, in this story, the Doctor was a bit more punctual - and so, Amelia got to take a ride in the TARDIS when she was still small enough to fit in a suitcase. (I've gotta admit, the interstellar child services segment was one of my favorite parts of the story. So many clipboards!)
With a runtime of nine minutes long (and just over the minimum limit at 1126 words), you can download this podfic as an mp3 right over here (thank you, paraka, for hosting me!) OR you can stream the story by clicking above. Don't forget to check out everything else that's on offer, all month long at podtor_who - and if you're a podficcer who likes Doctor Who, think about signing up! There's still a few days free, and the more the merrier.
I got paired up with the amazing sklee for my authorial project, and I've gotta say, it was a FANTASTIC experience. We had matched up on a number of different fandoms, but somehow it ended up with me dumping a bunch of plot-bunny nonsense onto Twitter, and then hoping sklee didn't laugh me off the internet. The fact that any of it's worth listening to at all is totally on sklee's performance - like, I was listening to some previews of the podfic, and was blown away by how much better it all sounded, outside my own head. So that's something.
The project that sklee and I ended up with? A Stargate: Atlantis-Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. fusion, aptly titled Five Ways To Join The Strategic Homeland Intervention, Enforcement, and Logistics Division. The fic runs about 2200 words, is set pre-Thor 2, and borrows more heavily from comics canon than it probably should, but... well, I really like the idea of Teyla as a Norn. Also, I was left with some heavy "Asgard is kind of a butt" feelings after seeing The Dark World, and they might show up in Teyla's and Ronon's perspectives. You can check out the official post HERE, complete with podfic, coverart, and nifty section dividers. Go listen! Go download! Go kudos!
As a podficcer, I was paired up with somnolentblue - who not only found the time to plan and run pt_lightning, but also to write a kickawesome and hilarious Nightmare Before Christmas fic. Do you love cooking via correspondence? Food puns? Sound effects? Terry Pratchett jokes? The general universe of Halloween Town? Then Scream of Wheat is the podfic for you. Check out the official post OVER HERE, for coverart, podfic streaming and downloading, and nifty scene dividers. And then, tell us how much you love it!
In the podfic of Scream of Wheat, I used a LOT of sound effects to create an immersive listening experience. And now I need to credit all the sources of those effects. Here comes the list:

Thanks to everyone on FreeSound who made these effects available for my use!
In the same vein as the last two years, I thought I'd make an Avengers podfic to celebrate. After all, what's more Thanksgiving-y than found families, celebrating memories together, and living in New york City? Spongebob, Garfield, and a Mark VIII Suit, written by sheafrotherdon (who has Blanket Permission to Podfic), contrasts Steve's Thanksgiving celebration in 1933 with his Thanksgiving in 2012. The story is a little bit bittersweet at first, but Tony manages to help Steve make some newer, brighter, holiday memories. It's great. And with a runtime of just under eight minutes long, you'll have time to fake a bathroom break to get away from the turkey, and give this podfic a listen instead. You can download this as an mp3 right over here (thank you, paraka, for hosting me!) OR you can stream the story by clicking below:
Fun facts: the Felix the Cat balloon in this coverart actually marched in the 1933 Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. Garfield didn't actually air in the 2012 parade...but Spongebob did! Iron Man has never had a balloon in the parade.
So, in the spirit of simultaneous podfic posting, here! Have some things to listen to!
