the song went on forever by salvage (Guardians of the Galaxy, gen) is a short and sweet story about cuddling. A++++ all around and recorded for my fellow sky pirate forzandopod. The pic I used for the cover actually ends right about where the text begins, so I had to spend some quality time with the stamp tool, or whatever it's called. The podfic comes in at an adorable 06:02 and can be downloaded here. \o/
Chacun à son goût by thehoyden (Dresden Files, Harry/Marcone) is a classic and an old favourite. I decided almost immediately to record this for my darling hananobira , having apparently forgotten just how many opera terms are in there. XD Endless thanks to kalakirya for helping me with the surprise!Italian and fishpatrol for being my trusty beta. For the cover art I used a picture of what I think is actually a Chicago opera house? I tried finding one of a private box, but alas, the google fu was not with me.
I ended up listening to quite a bit of opera thanks to working on this, and actually watched some sort of movie version of La Boheme on youtube. The song at the beginning of this podfic is an instrumental version of quando m'en vo, aka Musetta's solo, because she's my fav. :D The music at the end is the prelude to La Traviata, though I also considered the overture of Die Fledermaus. Also: at some point I'm going to release a blooper reel that includes the 5 minutes I spent freaking out about the pronunciation of segue. I mean, seriously? SEGWAY?
Ahem. Anyway, the podifc is 1:11:50 long and can be downloaded here.
The One with the Bros by andavs (Teen Wolf, Derek/Stiles) might actually be my surprise!favourite, just because the narration was so much fun to record. I mean, it's a story about Stiles, Derek and Scott fighting (well, 'fighting') against a coven made of frat bro witches. How amazing is that? Hella amazing. And hella funny. I was so happy that I thought of this when I was contemplating what to record for reena_jenkins . It's perfect for her (I hope).
And I'm so pleased with how the cover turned out, I can't even tell you. I found that guy just by googling frat bro, photoshopped the Ucla logo on there, and boom, super fast yet super cool cover art. i guess alternatively I could have taken a picture of work bro in one of his Ucla shirts (no but seriously, why does he have all of those, we're in Germany) but I'm sorry to say he wouldn't have been able to pull off that glorious douchiness/swagger. The music, as stated, is from that college song, and my super-short-notice beta was the lovely yue_ix . <3
The podfic comes in at a very pleasing 54:45 and can be downloaded here.
