aka everyone's favorite annual podfic gift exchange run entirely over twitter with no limits, no rules yeah there are some rules ngl, but mostly just squee (new and improved(?) this year: run entirely on mod tears! \o/)

(If you'd like to see previous years' master lists, 2011 is here and 2012 is here.)

Ahaha. Hahahahahaha. Okay dudes, you're gonna have to allow me a moment of modly...uh, ranting. Sort of.

You guys. The original draft of this paragraph said, somewhat facetiously, "Fuck yes we work hard on this. This year we did it through fucking chronic migraines, viral pneumonia, a month of involuntary couchsurfing, and various personal crises." And [personal profile] cantarina emailed that to me the week BEFORE we encountered, between us: a family death, a several-days long electrical blackout, and a broken modem which removed all home internet access (and PS, it's still not back). Not to MENTION AO3 bugs, broken Python code, and new Twitter DM restrictions.

(Actually, I'm lying to you. The original draft of the above paragraph originally said "AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA #killme #bitchesbetterappreciate".)

BASICALLY: your mods have had A Month. Or a few Months. Whatever.

But you know what? If y'all will allow me to get sappy for a minute, you motherfuckers make all the work we do on this in the face of such adversity WORTH IT. Every year when Ca'rina and I get on Skype and talk to each other while we distribute gifts, and watch the squee pour in over our twitter feeds, we always say to each other, "jesus, THIS is why we do this, it makes it all worth it, wow." Because it does. So thank you thank you THANK YOU for being amazing, all of you, you literally give us the energy to continue to do this <3

On a less sappy/whiny/terrible note, SOME HIGHLIGHTS OF THE CHALLENGE THIS YEAR FOR US WERE:
  • HOLY CRAP OUR BIGGEST YEAR YET, over 50 participants!!! (Bess’ single-minded goal and you’re all great for helping her meet it <3)
  • [ profile] lattice_frames & [ profile] sendreinfrcmnts podding the exact same fic for each other
  • putting [ profile] reenajenkins SMACK in the middle of the "Hockey Loop" when pairing people, which she probably didn't know about until just now, and is probably now cursing Bess furiously ;) (#IllGetYouMyPretty)
  • speaking of [ profile] reenajenkins, she utterly OBLITERATED any previous records we had for longest/most podfic submitted, turning in a whopping fifteen hours, forty minutes, and thirty-two seconds of podfic for her main gift, and that's not counting extra treats (robot ROBOT SHE'S A PODFIC ROBOT is2g)

  • [ profile] alexwlchan for creating (and debugging!) the script we use for coding, and also [ profile] stopthatimp for additional debugging/assistance
  • [ profile] opalsong & [ profile] sapphirescribe for being incredible pinch-hitters
  • [ profile] anna_unfolding for her awesome treat-making, despite not having been a formal part of the exchange
  • [ profile] akamine_chan for generously offering to do cover art for many many people--much of the lovely art you see below was done by her :)
  • [ profile] fleurrochard & [ profile] pattyisnickname for some last-minute podbook compiling #rockstars

ALRIGHT ALRIGHT, I'll stop rambling, I know what y'all are here for. Without further ado.....

Summary:  “So,” Matt says, dragging it out.  “Your neighbour actually knitted you some socks?  Is she a ninety-year-old grandmother?”  Andrew shrugs. “No, he’s um.  He’s about my age, I think.  I don’t know, maybe it wasn’t him, but I was telling him how I didn’t have any socks left and now I have socks, so.” Matt hums.  “That’s an interesting courtship ritual,” he says.  “In some cultures, that may even mean you’re married.”

aka everyone's favorite annual podfic gift exchange run entirely over twitter with no limits, no rules okay there were a few rules this year, and mostly just squee

Well kids, it's been a year. Our little challenge is All Grown Up! (Though not without some growing pains!) We added Dear Podficcer letters and treats, we had a much bigger sign-up list, and [personal profile] paraka did NOT try to pinch-hit her own gift, but DID get excited about her gift from me...which was NOT actually from me and was, in fact, from [personal profile] reena_jenkins. (It’s a lot less complicated than it sounds, but where’s the fun explaining the joke? WE LOVE YOU LINDSAY)

BUT DESPITE THE ROUGH PATCHES, WE ALL GOT THROUGH IT! And amazingly enough, with only one pinch-hitter! (We <3 you [personal profile] analise010 YOU ROCK!)

So enough of this chit-chat, I know why you're all really here--THE AWESOME AMOUNTS OF GREAT NEW PODFIC \o/ Let's get to it.

(NOTE: all download links are currently direct download links from the Archive. I’ll be going through and making pages for everything and swapping the direct links out for links to their respective archive pages, but THERE ARE A LOT OF PODFICS HERE, so bear with me and be patient <3)


OMG I can haz bonus treats?! )

THAT'S IT YOU GUYS! We're going to make even more changes for next time based on this year's experience, so if you have any feedback, let us know in the comments! SEE YOU NEXT YEAR!
