The Science of Phonaesthetics

Podfic (mine and others'), fic recs, equal-opportunity fannish flailings currently covering the following ground and then some: Sherlock, Star Trek, Pacific Rim, Welcome to Night Vale, Doctor Who.

AO3 / Amplificathon / what's podfic?

A request: If you know me (or even think you know me) IRL/outside of fandom, I would greatly appreciate it if you sent me a private message letting me know so that we can chat. I'm mostly fine with people knowing about my fannish self IRL, but still appreciate the gesture all the same!

PS: If you'd like me to tag for something (anything, really), just let me know and I will!

I just realized (a bit late) that it’s been a year since I posted my first podfic, The Progress of Sherlock Holmes, to Amplificathon.

I’m so ridiculously glad that I made the decision to toss caution and nerves and doubt to the wind and throw my hand in at podficcing. I’m richer in friendships, confidence, skill, knowledge, and sheer joy than I could have ever imagined when I decided to start participating in fandom culture in the only way I knew how a year ago. 

So, yes, I suppose I just wanted to say thank you to everyone who’s stuck with me along the way, to every friend I’ve made, and to every person who’s ever told me that what I do had a positive impact on their experience as a fan, or just as a person. Thanks especially to Ivy for the permission to podfic her phenomenal story, and to all the writers who’ve given me permission to podfic their work since. It’s really meant the world to me, and I’m so grateful for every single one of you guys. 

On that note, in case anyone wants to give the old girl a re-listen or rec it to a friend, here she is :)
