I've just listened to this and I'm all kinds of flattered and touched by what you've said about my podfics! I know I'm not very involved in the podficcing community (I'm just not a social creature by nature) and it always surprises me when I'm mentioned. The story about inflicting "Through the Glass" on a car full of people delighted me. Mine, too, is an evil laugh. >:) And it was really interesting for me to hear about things that work or don't in other pods, or what you drift towards as podfic consumers.

Thank you ladies so much. This very much made my day!

I love your podfics! I keep trying to convince those two to listen to Moments Lost in Time, but I made the mistake of describing it as "the one where everyone dies" and they were both like "I'M NOT LETTING YOU DO THIS TO ME AGAIN!" :P

Oh, god, that story is such a wonderful knife to the heart! I'm really happy with how the podfic came out and ADORE the writing, but yeah. Woof. It's definitely in the top three most angsty things I've every recorded.

And I'm definitely loling at it being described as "the one where everyone dies." I... yeah, no, I can't even argue with that. :D
Parakaparaka on November 13th, 2014 08:05 pm (UTC)
Oh man, now I'm really curious what the others in your top 3 would be. :P

And yeah, it's really good, but there have been times where I've started it and been like, "Nope, I don't think I can handle another 5 hours of this, I need to space it out with happy stuff" :P

"Another Universe" (Marvel) and "Coping Mechanisms," (Sherlock BBC) probably.
A little confession: "Another Universe" is probably my favorite thing I've podficed. SUCH a neat disjointed narrative structure - I have so much love for how that fic was written. Plus, y'know, the extremely painful ending.

Which I do seem to have a weakness for. Huh.

Yeah, the podcast does have a great point about the fics we choose to record revealing a great deal about our personal tastes. :)

I made some icons the year before last to celebrate pod_aware and I thought I'd give it another go this year. :D Here's what I came up with:

Hey There :) So, about a month ago Liannabob sent me a note saying something along the lines of 'hey, so there was a podcast by dapatty and paraka that said some nice thing about your work, you might want to check it out.' I jumped right in to feeling all nice and gleeful that someone said something nice about my work, but it's taken until now for me to be able to listen to your podcast.

Having said that, it was really interesting to listen to what you had to say about podcasting in general. I'm fairly terrible about being in 'the know/loop' about fandom related things, especially in relation to podcasting, and it was nice to hear opinions that weren't just in my own head ;) Thanks for all the podfic recs, I plan to definitely try and listen to some in your list!

Finally, I was a little bit blown away by your really, really, nice comments on both my stories and the podfic version of them (both Liannabob's rendition (which I am so Thrilled with!!) and my own). It was...really unexpectedly flattering and overall just made my face hurt from all the giddy smiling.

Thanks for making me a part of this podcast and for your wonderful comments.
