I swear to God I will someday return to posting prose of a reasonable length instead of a smattering of short podfics and poetry... and maybe podfic that's not silly crossovers. :|

Title: “The Case of the Stolen Sapphires”
Author: [livejournal.com profile] xenoamorist
Reader: [livejournal.com profile] xenoamorist
Fandoms: BBC Sherlock/My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic (yes. no regrets.)
Characters/Pairings: Sherlock, Rarity, John, Applejack; gen
Genres: Play, humor, mystery, ficlet, crossover, crack
Length: 4:50 (712 words)
Rating: PG
Summary: Rarity needs help locating her stolen sapphires, but Sherlock has a more pressing case at hand.
Notes: I stumbled across “Time and Relative Perspectives in Space” that [livejournal.com profile] cantarina1, [livejournal.com profile] weimar27, [livejournal.com profile] nickelmountain, and [livejournal.com profile] moragmacpherson produced for [livejournal.com profile] pod_together, and I was fascinated. I loved hearing a fanfic play, and I wanted to make one of my own. This one is actually my third one; the other two are tiny drabbles (just under a minute long each) that I haven’t yet made cover art or recorded the header for, but I’ll be posting those shortly.

I didn’t collaborate, so all the character voices are my own. Additionally, as you can hear in the header, my natural speaking voice is a Californian accent, so producing (1) Applejack’s Southern twang, (2) Sherlock and John’s Received Pronunciation, and (3) Rarity’s North Atlantic/posh accent was... a challenge. I very much welcome constructive criticism, so do pick apart my accents. I have a background in linguistics, so if you can use IPA, all the better.

Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] oddacity, [livejournal.com profile] metavolition, and [livejournal.com profile] prosopopeya for betaing.

Title: “a handful of valor”
Author: [livejournal.com profile] zempasuchil/[livejournal.com profile] twoskeletons
Reader: [livejournal.com profile] xenoamorist
Fandom: None (Supernatural if you squint)
Characters/Pairings: OCs; gen (Sam and Dean; gen if you squint)
Genres: Poetry, drama
Length: 4:47 (395 words)
Rating: PG-13
Summary: “when space reopens old wounds / the night / asking him where it hurts / is a rustle of breath / an afterthought / the memory of his fifth bruise stitched to the sound”
Notes: This is another piece of erasure poetry; the original fic was a Supernatural fic, so part of that may have leeched through to the poetry, but it can be read as either an original poem or a Supernatural one.

Title: “as small as a world and as large as alone”
Author: [livejournal.com profile] xenoamorist/[livejournal.com profile] be_themoon

Fandom: Supernatural
Characters/Pairings: Castiel, Dean; Dean/Castiel
Genres: Poetry, drama
Length: 4:56 (506 words)

Summary: Castiel is sent down to Earth. Being human is at once alien and exhilarating, but human emotions come at a cost.
Notes: I'm still relatively new to poetry recitation, so I would love feedback on that. :)

Title: “Thank You for Being a Friend”
Author: [livejournal.com profile] prosopopeya
Reader: [livejournal.com profile] xenoamorist
Fandom: Supernatural/My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic (yes. really.)
Characters/Pairings: Castiel, Fluttershy; Dean/Castiel if you squint
Genres: Crossover, schmoop, fluff, crack
Length: 6:03 (801 words)
Rating: G
Summary: Castiel needs someone to comfort him. Fluttershy's up to the task.
Notes: I did this for the sole reason of having an excuse to do a Fluttershy voice. (I'd love feedback on my character voices; it's the first time I've done more drastic different voices! ♥) AND BECAUSE THIS FIC IS SO PERFECT. AND BEAUTIFUL. AND MAKES ME SO, SO HAPPY.

Bonus! B-side with me singing "Carry On My Wayward Son" in a Fluttershy voice, because I couldn't resist. Don't mind the fact that I am nowhere near a soprano range, haha~

Title: untitled
Author: [livejournal.com profile] odette_river
Reader: [livejournal.com profile] xenoamorist
Fandom: Doctor Who
Characters/Pairings: Jack, mentions of Ten; one-sided Jack/Ten
Genres: Drabble
Length: 0:47 (123 words)
Rating: G
Summary: The Doctor isn't like other people, and that's why Jack falls for him, hard.
Notes: This is a tiny drabble, but it caught my eye when I was going through [livejournal.com profile] odette_river's work—the imagery itself is beautiful, and this drabble captures Jack's characterization well and provides a pretext for his fascination with Ten, something that wasn't explored much in the series.

Title: “Some Boys are Sleeping Alone”
Author: [livejournal.com profile] prosopopeya
Reader: [livejournal.com profile] xenoamorist
Fandom: Supernatural
Characters/Pairings: Dean, John, Sam, OMCs, OFC, Castiel; Dean/OMC, Dean/Castiel
Genre: Drama
Length: 25:24 (4,251 words)
Rating: R
Spoilers: Season 5
Summary: “This isn't something that's okay, not for him, but it chases him through the years until it turns into something he can't—doesn't want to deny.”
Notes: I loved this fic the moment I laid eyes on it, and even after reading it like three or five times and rereading it as I recorded this podfic, I've only fallen more in love with it. It's a beautiful story that tells of Dean's struggles with his bisexuality, and it's gorgeous and real and laden with emotions; the ending is tragic and lingers long after the story's done. [livejournal.com profile] prosopopeya handles sexuality in a deep, complex way, and I wish more fic authors would put in the same amount of consideration when writing about sexuality. [livejournal.com profile] prosopopeya also uses original characters to great effect. It's pretty much a perfect fic.

This is also my first podfic, so any feedback is very much appreciated. ♥
