out of the auditary promo banner

Out of the Auditary is a new, hopefully recurring fest for podficcing works that don't fit into the "standard" fiction format, such as meta, not!fic, epistolary and chatfic, video game codes entries, fake scientific articles, poetry, and many more! Rules and details are here on AO3; submission deadline is March 23rd!

If you want to promo the fest, just copy & paste this code:

Because we were over the tag limit for paid accounts (and the paid time expired anyway), I started merging some mostly older single-use tags into more general categories. We already had

fandom:miscellaneous literature
fandom:miscellaneous rpf

And now I've added:

fandom:jane austen novels - 11 uses
fandom:mary renault novels - 2 uses
fandom:miyazaki films - 11 uses
fandom:miscellaneous tv - 25 uses
fandom:miscellaneous video games - 4 uses
fandom:robert heinlein works - 2 uses
fandom:sarah waters novels - 2 uses
fandom:seanan mcguire/mira grant novels - 2 uses

We could also do with fandom:miscellaneous films and maybe a few other categories? Not all eligible tags have been merged into these categories as I wasn't sure what to do about anime tv, other animated cartoons, and fandoms with adaptations/multiple media.

We're currently at 1520 tags and still can't add brand new specific fandom tags, but can merge tags into broader fandom tags where appropriate. Any requests?

ETA: I just realized we can repurpose existing tags for newer/more popular fandoms, so we've got a buzzfeed tag and a miscellaneous anime tag now.

Pairings: Edward Elric/Roy Mustang
Tags: post-canon, break up, getting back together, angst, romance
Notes: Thanks to Enterprisingly for giving permission to podfic this story.
This isn't my best cover but I had very specific ideas and they didn't pan out the way I wanted, so this is the closest approximation to what it should've been XD.

Summary: There is nothing wrong with their relationship – or Roy himself – and perhaps that is the problem. For Ed is so very used to being in mortal peril, constantly playing a game of catch-as-catch-can with death. The sudden stillness of civilian life and a happy relationship does not settle easily on his shoulders.

In which Ed runs away from domesticity and the pressure of being someone's love.

Podfic of Enterprisingly's story.

Fandom: Venom (comics)
Characters/Pairings: Eddie Brock/Flash Thompson/Venom
Rating: T
Warning: Amazing Spider-Man #800 fix-it
Summary: On a rainy, cursed night when the Red Goblin tore through New York City, he left carnage in his wake. In a moment of impulse, Eddie Brock allowed his symbiote to go with Spider-Man to try and defeat Osborn as one, teaming up with Agent Anti-Venom, Flash Thompson. And so he waited on the Stark Industries rooftop with Mary Jane Watson, but the one who returned with Venom... was not who he expected.

Or: There's a lot of air to clear, but almost dying can certainly give a man some perspective.

Cover art! I love cover art, I love talking about and thinking about cover art, and I think cover art deserves more love. Thus, a commentmeme about cover art!

Tell us about a podfic cover art you like! Of your own podfic, or of the ones you've made, or from someone else's podfic! What do you like about it? If you made it, what was your process? How does it do a good job of being a cover?

If you want to talk about more than one cover, that is also more than okay! I would suggest putting them in separate comments though unless you're talking about them as some kind of thematic whole.

Comment on other people's comments! Let them know how awesome the cover art they're talking about is! Let's celebrate the art and the craft that goes into a part of podfic that we rarely focus on! \o/

(And, to lay that anxiety to rest: none of this means that podfic without cover art is inherently less valuable, or that cover art is a necessary part of podfic. This fest just happens to focus on cover art!)

Tags: College AU, friends to lovers, long distance friendship, mutual pining, not-really hockey players
Notes: Thanks to StormDancer for giving me permission to podfic this story. Virtual brownies to anyone who can tell me what reference to the fic I snuck into the cover.

Summary: “You know he’s not my boyfriend, right?” Sidney asks.
Tanger raises his eyebrows. “I know you think he’s not your boyfriend.”


Sid & Geno are in a long-term, long-distance platonic relationship. Apparently no one else seems to get that.

It's time for year N I N E of the Ladies Podfic Anthology! As before, we'll be collecting short lady-centric podfics by different readers in different fandoms to release as an anthology and as a collection of individual files.

Changes this year:
  • The submission deadline is February 14th, and we will post on February 28th.

  • The theme for this year's anthology is laughter. It's optional—all podfics are welcome as long as they follow the rules laid out in the Submission Guidelines—but feel free to let it inspire you if you'd like.

If you are not familiar with this project, you can see the previous eight anthologies here, here, here, here, here, here, here, and here.

Important note: Please make sure you read and follow the Submission Guidelines below the cut. It helps everything flow together much better, and it makes the mods' jobs so much easier!

To Podficcers: Interested in participating? We'd love to have you. This should be a low-stress project, even for people who are new to podficcing, due to the word-count: 1500 words or less (with many being as short as 1-2 minutes). If you'd like to record something for this anthology, please fill out this quick google form and we'll send you the link to the spreadsheet where we'll be keeping track of all the podfics.

Here are some good places for finding short fics about female characters:
-The Women Being Awesome, Female Characters, POV Female Character, and Female Relationships tags at the AO3, limited to word counts of 1500 or less.
-The Misses Clause Challenge from Yuletide
-Femslash Minis
-Awesome Ladies Ficathon (original LJ ficathon deleted, but these works crossposted to AO3 remain)
-Real Women Fest
-Female Character Trope Fest
-The Bechdel Test Comment Ficathon
-The Bechdel Test Comment Ficathon II
-I am the Plot, Babe: A Villainess Ficathon
-Where No Woman: Un-erasing the women of Star Trek
-Femslash Kinkmeme
-The Femslash February Collection

Since this project has a relatively quick turnaround time, you may want to refer to the list of authors who have given Blanket Permission to Podfic, so that you can get started recording stories right away!

To the Podcurious: A number of prolific podficcers have gotten their start by contributing to previous years of this anthology. If you have ever thought you might like to create podfic, this is a really great starting place. It's low pressure, you'll get a lot of listeners, you're contributing to a cool fanwork that celebrates our love for female characters, and it's not too intense of a spotlight, because your piece is in the company of many other voices.

To Everyone: Feel free to comment with links to other fests or specific works that you think would be a good fit for this anthology. Additionally, we are looking for beta listeners who can absolutely commit to at LEAST two hours of beta listening between February 15th and 18th. Please let us know if you'd be available and interested; we'd be very grateful!

To Authors: We've had some awesome authors get involved in the past, in [community profile] pod_together style, to create short female-centric pieces for the anthology in collaboration with podficcers. If you’re an author who’s interested and is seeking podficcers to work with, feel free to comment below. Podficcers who would like this sort of collaboration, please reply directly to the authors.

Below the cut is important information on what we're looking for with these podfics and how they should be submitted.

The Choices We Make Cover


[Podfic] The Choices We Can't Make (And Those We Can) (32 words) by PhagePods
Mediafire Link: mp3
Fandom: Check Please! (Webcomic)
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Alexei "Tater" Mashkov/Snowy
Characters: Alexei "Tater" Mashkov, Snowy (Check Please!), Sebastien "Marty" St. Martin, Providence Falconers (Ensemble)
Additional Tags: Angst and Hurt/Comfort, Podfic, Podfic Length: 30-45 Minutes
Author summary: 

The phone nearly fell out of Alexei’s numb fingers as he listened to George on the other end of the line. “They thought you might take the news from me best. I’m so sorry, Tater. I know how much the team means to you.”

He had hoped that they would pass him over and pick up one of the other people on the list. He knew his hefty contract should have made him less desirable. Just one more year and he would have been about to hide behind his no trade clause. It took him several minutes to find his voice. “When they call me?” he croaked.

So backstory, I've just recently upgraded from an iPhone 4 (ios6?) to a XR. I had been looking forward to finally fitting my whole podfic collection in all its curated, tagged, metadata'd, smart playlisted glory onto one device at the same time... only to be horrified to find out that iOS now puts all files set as 'audiobooks' into the book app and not the music one. No sorting to be found. After freaking out a little, I did figure out one workaround. If I set all my podfic back to 'music' then I can still play them through the music app...but they no longer remember the playback position. I'd also like to still be able to have an actual music collection to shuffle without worrying about podfic popping up at inappropropriate times!

Please tell me someone has a good system they can share! In a perfect world I'd be able to just use my current playlists while still retaining functionality. That said, if anyone has alternative apps, systems, hacks... anything! Please help me out, my google-fu is failing me <3
