To start: reena-jenkins has read a marvelous podfic of Hellmouth High Schools Don't Have Reunions
, one of my Buffy/Doctor Who crossovers --- Link to podfic
-- Link to podbook (with cover art!)
-- I don't know much about podfic, but it held my notoriously short attention span even though I hate re-reading my own stuff after it's been published - mostly I'll only do it when starting a sequel or trying to add to a dormant WIP. I'm now fighting the urge to go back and completely re-edit the story to meet my current standards. (Why didn't I use a beta? What did I have against the word 'said'?) Rest assured: any faults with this project fall on my side. Thanks so much, reena, and if you still want to tackle Impossible Things
, I'd be absolutely thrilled.
On that note: I'm about five days worth of postings behind on finishing my spn_j2_bigbang rec list.
One of the reasons I don't know much about podfics is because I'm kind of a speed-reader and podfics slow down the rate at which I consume words; to wit: at the very least I started and in most cases I read through every
non-D/C story published this round (I'm not anti-D/C, per se, but my lack of enthusiasm for the pairing in general means that I'm really not qualified to judge D/C fic). I'd do the math on how many words that is (and that's not all I was reading this summer) but I'm certain the total would be highly embarrassing.
Anyway, the rec list will be fairly comprehensive and there's already twenty stories on it. I just need to catch up on the ones published in the last week while I was moving back to school and then I'll post the rec list. The reading's going a little slower now due to school things, me actually writing my own fic, and me trying to read through nominees at the Crossing Over Awards
. I'd pimp myself over there but honestly, my stories are up against some serious competition and I have no expectations whatsoever. (The 'Best Non-BtVS/AtS Crossover
' category is so incredibly strong this year, it's mind-boggling.)
