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 :)

Fic by Wordstrings…AGG? It’s Christmas!
I’m really happy and thankful and lucky to be a part of such a lovely fandom family.
Happy holidays, ya’ll.
Do you guess, John? Do you guess yet? Can you see it? It feels so obvious. The clock is ticking. It’s coming. You don’t see it, do you. It’s the hinge. Impending. Shattered glass hovering over the floor. It will hurt.
So…here’s how this is going to go. I realize most people probably don’t want to read a story scene by scene. But I get such JOY posting this way, it’s very motivating for me. There is a sort of middle ground, though!
This is a story in three parts. The last time I wrote a story in three parts I just posted it as one chaptered thing, which I’m not completely delighted about, really. So this time I’m going to try posting a story as a series of three chaptered stories to see how that works out. I will post each scene of it as I finish it, but if you’d rather you can wait until each individual story is done before reading, that will make sense, I think. Or just wait until the whole thing is done and read it in one go. Or just ignore it altogether, which would make the most sense.
I had sort of decided only to post three times (one for each story in this little series), but I still want it to be fun for me, you know? And the act of posting makes me so happy. So my apologies if you find it annoying. You can’t win’em all, can you.
Well aren’t I just about the luckiest girl this side of the Mississippi. If you haven’t already, go check out Ivy’s new WIP for the fuckyeahjohnlockfanfic giveaway!

Your excitement is making me both giggle with glee and sweat with nerves. I just sent it off…hope it’s a good one <3
‘give away a fanfic writer’ - sounds like we’re going to get an actual author and not just something written by them.
That ISN’T what’s happening? But…I’m all packed and ready to go!
*breaks out extra toothbrush, week’s worth of wine and nibbles, blanket fort materials*
IVY I GOT YOU! Oh man, now I’ve actually got to stop faffing about and come up with something good with which to prompt you :)
