cantarina: uhura and other red "skirts" (st - redskirts)
[personal profile] cantarina posting in [community profile] amplificathon
Welcome to a podfic love meme! Specifically, a love meme for all contributors to the podfic community. (ty [personal profile] analise010 for coining that and to [personal profile] yue_ix for the gorgeous art below!) "Contributors" could include but isn't limited: podficcers, audiofic archivists and other infrastructure people, mods, meta writers, cover artists, and betas/cheerleaders.





Some information so that we're all on the same page!

1) Comment with your name if you want to be loved on!
Because some of us have better visibility in some parts of fandom than others, feel free to leave a short bio, links to your social media handles, links to what it is that you do, or whatever context you think is important.

2) Tell us what you want love for.
If you'd rather hear more about your podficcing than your work as an archivist, say so! If you want to hear just about your cover art, say so! If you want to hear about your modding AND your meta AND your podfic, say so! Help us make this as good an experience for you as possible.

3) Let us know if it's okay to befriend you.
With potential full-on bios floating around, we're getting into friending meme territory. If you're open to that, include that somewhere in your comment.

HAVE FUN. BE GOOD TO EACH OTHER.

From: [personal profile] opalsong
Hey!! This is an awesome thing!

All my podfic can be found on AO3 (under Opalsong). I'd love love for that and my cover art (sometimes I work really hard on it and no one comments and that is a little dispiriting). I've also done some scattered other stuff: like being a director for Theatripod, modding Podfic Big Bang last year, and producing a bunch of massive collabs (and currently running a podfic experiment).

I can be found here on DW (though the only thing I post is all my podfic) and on Twitter (under Opalsong. I'm locked but if you wave to me & let me know you're a podficcer I'm more than happy to let you follow). Do not be fooled into thinking I have a tumblr - it is defunct and only still there because breaking links makes me sad.

I am in awe of the air of effortlessness you give off when you do so many amazing projects, by yourself or in producing all those massive collaborations. You are amazing and someone I very much look up to in the podfic community. ♥

HIIIIIII!!!! First. I think you're great. I've thought you were great for a long time. I was even scared to friend you because I thought, "I CAN'T! I'm unworthyyyyy." I'm so glad I got over that and decided to talk to you because yours even better...'in person.'

Your podfics are unparalleled and your multivoice Yuri!!! On Ice collabs keep me sane when I'm at work.

You do so much amazing work in so many fandoms; it's super impressive and I too very much look up to you.

Your cover art also always has very nice colors that give me an idea of the podfic's tone- much appreciated!

I thought you were a great mod for Podfic big bang last year, even if i wasns't involved with the challenge. Really, your Epic Podfic Big Bang GSD was a total game changer for me. It helped me work on my itpe when i was freaking out, too anxious to edit! Without it, i don't know what i would have done :s I'm so so grateful <3333

You are incredible! I am so impressed with your producing these complex multivoice works! I love the choices you make in sound effects and other audio for emoji, gifs, texting

(Also I've been listening to a bunch of your DA:I podfic recently and loving it!)

I don't know how you find the time and energy to just do so much stuff. It is way impressive. Also, I'm having a lot of fun with the YoI multi voice thing we'Re doing right now, I love that you always try to puh the envelope for new stuff.

If all you had done was put together 'Yuri on Air' and 'katsuki_fc says', this community would be infinitely indebted to you! I am constantly in awe of the amount of podfic you produce and at such a consistently high level. You are a wonder! ♥

Your work is always wonderful and thats not even beginning to talk about how incredibly prolific you are!
I always love your handling of narration, you have a rhythm that is so pleasant to listen to, and has occasion made me forget the time. I'm always loathe to pause the track when it's you talking. Your style is just so compelling to listen to.
Your voice is also now the voice I hear in my head for certain characters like Iron Bull, it has entered my consciousness to that extent!
I hope we can record more multivoice together in future!

Opalsong, how can I count the ways you are awesome, there are too many, I don't have enough fingers. I'm super impressed with your collab editing work, having edited collab projects myself I cannot imagine how you can take all that on but you do and it's glorious. I've super enjoyed not!fic podficcing with you as well, whenever we overlap fandoms I am a happy, happy person.

Your wonderful long podfics have improved my life so much. I know I've flailed about Backslide at you before, but like, I was stuck with very few other people and nothing to do, snowbound 150 miles from the nearest town with no internet for ~2 months and that podfic, and then Avalanche, and then Babylon, got me through it. Your voice was my best friend and those three podfics are so amazing. Also Backslide has possibly one of my favorite podfic cover arts? There's something about the placement of the curve of the ponytail that's just really pleasing, and I don't know the source so I don't have context for who the image originally belongs to, but I completely believe it's actually from the fic, it works perfect. Of course those first memories of Backslide are also added to because I made my roommate listen to it with me, and she too fell in love with it (even though she is definitely not a Naruto person), Backslide turned out to be just about perfect timing length wise for plane rides + transit while we were traveling together in Ireland.

But it's not just that! You also made The Best Defense/Good Offense podfics and they were *SO GOOD* and that got me through 'oh god what is my life?' D.C.-area traffic (and apparently got one of my friends back into YuYu Hakusho bc she asked for audiobook suggestions for her work commute), also BD/GO also have really compelling and beautiful covers, they're so peaceful and pretty and suggest the fusion/crossover of the fic really well. And I haven't even mentioned the Crazy!Ed verse yet, or OMG your Gundam Wing podfics?! And you recorded me SNK cannabilism! I could basically go on forever about how amazing you are and how amazing your long podfic is and how much better it has made my life (like how many hours of happiness is that, how can I ever thank you?!). And now your recording in Yuri on Ice too, basically your fannish choices seem designed to make me the happiest listener ever.

But I have to also mention how totally amazed and thrilled and giddy I am that you've made podfic of my fic *clutches at face*, how am I worthy? It feels a little narcissistic to say it, but I love listening to your podfics of my work. You truly elevate everything you record, so I get to feel great about myself and accomplished as a writer, but also get to appreciate your amazing readings. You are so wonderful.

It was super lovely meeting you at Podfication, I'm so happy to know you and look forward to future collabs with you, and listening to more of your glorious podfic.

I have a whole truckload of podfic love for you <33333333333333333333333333

Seriously. You recorded Out of the Dark for me and it was perfect. I've apparently listened to it 171 times. That perfect.
And then! You found and recorded Shadows in Starlight. OMG. That is a podfic that I can commute to for an entire week and your performance is amazing. AMAZING.

Thank you. <3333333

Hello!

You and your podfics have been an inspiration for me! Both because you do a lot of longer works and because you add sounds and special effects! You put so much work into the, dare I say, productions and as a listener it's wonderful to hear and experience.

I have a few fics that I want to transform into a radio drama and I hope I can get to your level of editing and adding special effects.


<33

From: [personal profile] yue_ix
You are inspiring and uplifting. I adored your Epic Podfic panel and how includisvr you made it - letting people like me who sees 5min recordings as a huge challenge know it's okay, and how to tackle my projects as such. In a few weeks who motivated me to participate in as many podfic projects as I had done up to then in 6 years of presence.

The imagination, effort and care you put into your covers is also wonderful. You spend hours on each, and I've now front-seated while you tested out dozens of versions trying to find the perfect one for your vision. They are a labour of sweat and love, even the ones you work at so much you get sick of them. I admire your constant drive to try new tricks on them and hear out my suggestions - I know how frustrating it can be when something just * doesn't want to work* but you always push through and stay true to yourself.

I'm really glad we've met and to have you in my fandomsphere. Your projects - single and collaborative - are important parts of the community and of my experience.

You are #EpicPodficGoals! I have whiled away many chores happily listening to you. I am staggered by the amount of work you've put in putting together those crazy big multi voice projects - they came out so nicely that I'm sure it must have been a lot of hard work to get them that way! Thank you for being someone who I can aspire to ♥
