I haven't posted all the podfics I made here on dreamwidth yet, buuuuuuut let's do this thing first! Including all the ITPE things even if they only got posted today.


I posted 21 podfics in 13 fandoms in 2016. Total length: 13:19:37

Out of those 11 were collabs.

Longest podfic: The Sea and Stars Are Yours My Dear, 03:30:09.

Shortest podfic: Two Monks Invent Fandom, 00:05:46

2 ITPE main gifts, 8 treats.

What was the best podfic you made this year?

I am really happy with every podfic I made in 2016, tbh, so this is a bit difficult. But in the end, it might still be The Sea And Stars Are Yours My Dear (Dishonored), which I posted all the way back in January. I spent a lot of time on it and am very proud of how it turned out. There's a very specific tone or atmosphere to it, half eerie, half hilarious, and yet it felt very easy to record. And as I noticed again when I more recently recorded in a mundane universe (time to bring out the menacing voice, to quote myself) doing the Outsider is always fun! Even if I have to say 'My dear Corvo' 5 million times to get into his voice.

What was the best cover you made this year?

This year I finally learned to install fonts, and it definitely shows in my ITPE covers. XD The cover I made for A Loyal Fan (Yuri On Ice) is probably my favourite, and definitely the most ambitious one I attempted so far. I'm not sure it works 100%, but it's a start! I'm also rather fond of the more minimalist cover for no room for pretend (Haikyuu).

Most underappreciated?

I honestly did not expect any of my Haikyuu podfics to receive much attention, but as it turns out, the Haikyuu fandom is really great and appreciative? It made me really happy! Still, KUNIMI, SOBS WHISPERER (Haikyuu) might be the answer here, simply because I love it so much and want everyone to listen to it! Oh well. It is a rare pairing, I guess. 

Personal favourite, for whatever reason?

KUNIMI, SOBS WHISPERER (Haikyuu). I love it SO MUCH. I have never laughed so much while recording/editing something. And if I may, I think my comedic crying is really quite good. :3 Similarly I also really like Hedge Your Bets (Ace Attorney, endless plant jokes). What can I say, I love crack fic.

Most difficult to make?

While the editing for most of my ITPE projects went very easily, Shrapnel (FMA) just had to be difficult. Or maybe it's just because it was the last project I had left to edit and I was tired, who knows. On the performance side, my part in Through Other Eyes (Dishonored) was rather challenging because the POV character uses they/their pronouns and also has slightly jumbled speech patterns - I hope it turned out okay!

Most “ah ha ha I can’t believe I’m doing this”?

KUNIMI, SOBS WHISPERER (Haikyuu), which was a very spontaneous idea and which I finished in like, a week. And then there's the, uh, alternative cover I made for here on the roof of the world (Yuri On Ice) and which you can view here. I'm really sorry. It's all fishpatrol and Hananobira's fault. :P

Most fun to make?

I did so many collabs, both in person and over skype, and they're always so much fun. <3 Aside from those, I'll have to point back up to my favourites! Hedge Your Bets (Ace Attorney) especially was fun to do because it gave me an excuse to point my finger dramatically and yell OBJECTION!

Was there one that didn’t turn out the way you wanted?

Nope, I don't think so! Which is a pretty great feeling, ngl. There's definitely room for improvement, but I'm happy with where I'm at.

Biggest learning experience?

Nothing really stands out in my memory, but then I'm not a particularly adventurous podficcer, hah. Maybe my attempts at being more ambitious with my cover art count!

What’s next? Do you have any podfic goals for next year?

I'd say 'make it to 50 works', but I'm pretty sure that's doable. ;D I do want to record more Haikyuu podfic, some Rogue One things maybe, and then there's two big projects that I've been thinking about for a while now...we'll see. :3
