tenoko1: (Podfic)
Inspired by [livejournal.com profile] fire_juggler's meta entry yesterday about podfic as she looked back on the two years as a fan, I decided to offer my own since I'm coming from a completely different perspective. There's also podcast of it, if you're interested.


Meta: Podfic- how and why

This entry was inspired by fire_juggler’s recent and beautifully written reflection on the changes she’s noticed now that she’s been apart of the podficcing community for two years. If you have not read it, or listened to either or both of the wonderful readings of it, I highly suggest you do so. You’ll get warm fuzzies and smiles you didn’t expect, even if you’re like me and coming from the opposite end of the spectrum, you’ll be drawn in, finding yourself completely able to relate to the deep love she portrays so clearly.

I have not been into podfic for two years, I’ve only been into it for a few months. I haven’t even been in my main fandom for that long. And I didn’t get draw into podfic because I was already a fan of audiobooks, quite the opposite, in fact. I scarcely gave audiobooks a thought, and not exactly a kind one, because well, I could read faster than the narrator ever could. ‘I could read an entire book in an evening, the trilogy in a weekend… why would I listen to the audiobook?’ was always my thought.

December of 2011, my best friend bought me the first season of Supernatural and an insane love affair soon began, only intensifying with the beginning of Season four when an Angel of the Lord showed up and I found myself squeeing in delight in every scene he starred.  I began to write a fanfic, the first I’d written in years, just for the sake of fun and personal amusement. [livejournal.com profile] ugbun, the friend who had originally introduced me to SPN, had been my dearest friend and biggest cheerleader with my writing since we met five years earlier through the last fic I’d written.

She wanted to read the fic, but lacked the time, which she hated, because she was missing out on all the stories involving her favorite characters. Now- though I was new to the Supernatural fandom, and this was my first fic within it- I had seen the term ‘podfic’ several times, and had only a vague understanding of what it was, even if I didn’t understand why it was. People recorded fanfics being read. It held no appeal to me, because still, I could read the story faster myself and didn’t have to worry about the reader inflecting something in a way that was said differently in my head and…

But it got me thinking. I love [livejournal.com profile] ugbun dearly, and would do pretty much anything for her. If I could find some way to give her back the ability to indulge in fanfic, that would allow her to multitask her job as a pastry chef in a chaotic and busy restaurant, and her second job of owning her own cake business… well, then, I would do that for her.

Podfic… fanfiction read aloud. Hmmmmm….

At first, I was completely intimidated by the thought. I had no idea where to start, I’d never listened to anything more than a short story in audiobook form a couple of times: Rikki Tikki Tavi and some story about a spaceship and a girl who’d snuck aboard having to get jettisoned into space. I didn’t grow up having parents who read me bedtime stories every night or as I grew up. I literally had nothing to go on other than how the story sounded in my head and if I could just figure out a way for my mouth and mind to work together instead of against each other for once, then maybe, maybe I could make this work.

           I think [livejournal.com profile] kalakirya is the one I asked about how to record a podfic and what to do about a microphone. I went through two headsets before getting a stationary mic to sit on my desk, a cheap little Logitech. Only one person would ever hear this after all, no need for an expensive Yeti or other intimidating microphones I’d have to save for months to get.

It started out being about someone one else, about doing something nice for someone I loved, someone who had always done so much for me, and whom I value so highly it would embarrass her to no end to know it.

But then… I realized I loved reading. It was fun in a way that was completely different from writing the story. Acting out the parts and changing my voice, and even though listeners couldn’t see the changes in my facial expressions as Sam made a bitch face in the story or Castiel looked to Heaven for patience in dealing with these two humans that never ceased to baffle, frustrate, endear him, I hoped they could hear it. Could hear the smiles, the hurt, the uncertainty, the feelings that are what makes us love fanfiction, and that podficcers try so desperately to convey, because that is what made them love the story and want to give it a voice to begin with.

I also learned a lot about my own writing in having to turn around and read it aloud. I noticed more mistakes and ways to better phrase sentences. I learned that stating anything about Cas’ ‘blue gaze’ is pretty much the hardest thing for me to say and it always, always, always comes out as ‘blue glaze’ instead, and since we aren’t talking about pottery, it takes five takes, frustrated raspberry sounds, and cussing before I get it out sounding anywhere near decent.

My dogs are on a mission to always have to scratch when I’m recording and I have to shoo them from the room. My neighbors get inspired to use their loudest lawn care machines just as soon as I sit down to record. The upstairs tenant is suddenly hit with the urge to have her own private dance party to the radio and I could sing along if I were so inclined. I’m suddenly bombarded with text messages, the alert going off repeatedly, in which case that was the first lesson I learned while podficcing: turn your phone on silent. If not, it will, without fail, go off mid-sentence, rather than having the courtesy to wait until a pause. If it’s on silent, no on texts until after your done.

I started downloading other people’s podfics with fervor then, wondering what they were like, if I was the only one with a southern drawl, if it would bother anyone to listen to it, or put them off to the story when my twang comes out as characters get mad, and I don’t realize how much until I get to the editing part.

I’m still brand spanking new to podfics, worrying about stepping on toes as I try to make my way into the community, feeling very much like the little kid getting to sit at the big kid’s table for the first time: excited and terrified of making a fool of myself or doing something wrong and no one having the heart to tell me. Or worse still, being terrible and everyone being polite about it because they feel so bad about the obvious newbie what with her inability to pace and her dogs and their stupid collars and tags in the background, not to mention her grand whopping total of three, count ‘em, three podfics to her credit.

Yep, I was the little kid at the big kid table who’s shoes didn’t even touch the floor: insignificant and out of my element, wondering what on God’s green earth I’d gotten myself into when there were people like [livejournal.com profile] exmanhater, [livejournal.com profile] liannabob, [livejournal.com profile] jennacorinth, and the legendary Fayjay sitting at that same table. ‘Eep’ didn’t begin to describe my panic.

But I stayed at the table, even though I had no background in what I was doing, because I loved it just the same, this new hobby that I would have never even considered or known was a hobby were it not for a single Christmas present from a friend who lived a thousand miles a way.

I’m still the new kid, and I don’t know very many people, even fewer probably know me, but I’m getting braver, ready to start asking permission to podfic other people’s work now that I’ve succeeded in not massacring my own. I like making podfic covers too, but again, all I’ve got are enthusiasm and willingness on my side, and the hope that it could be worse than whatever my final creation is.

I’ve had people say they would never be brave enough to do podfic or even attempt it. You’ve listened to it, haven’t you? You know how it sounds in your head. Just try it. I’m sure you’ll surprise yourself. Perfection not required, leave scathing self-criticism at the door, just go give the people you already know and dearly love a voice. We all came here for different reasons and from different fandoms, but we’re here, and that’s the fun of it. Trying, learning, experimenting, practicing, and succeeding in jumping over that fence into a brand new field to go run and play in… that’s what fandom is. That is what fanworks are. They are fun and love and time and pieces of you rolled together to create a fingerprint. Something completely unable to be duplicated by anyone else. Because it was done by you, and in that, you connected with others like you all over the world, different though you all may be, yet all united as well, regardless of time zones, hemispheres, or continents. That is what podfics, and fandom, are about.

So, yeah. I haven’t been here for two years. I haven’t listened to very many podfics outside of Supernatural, because hey, obsession! I have one! But, I’m here, too. Connected with those who are now veterans while I’m still brand new and unbroken in, and I think there’s a kind of beauty in the terrified forward stare, just as there is in fire_juggler’s reflective look back.

tenoko1: (SPN: Dean/Cas)
Okay, so I made some covers for my podfic, and wanted your feedback on them. It was kind of hard considering there aren't really images that GO with this particular story. Anyway, I think I like the colorful one more option, seeing as how they're all smiling and everything.



I'm definitely leaning more toward the second one, though it has nothing to do with the story either. lol If anyone would like to throw their efforts into the mix, you are more than welcome. I need more images to work with. As much as I like the second one, it's rather clearly J2M rather than DSC, you know? And it doesn't have anything to do with the actors, so the cover doesn't really work. I need promotional images or something with the characters. Hi-res images, or maybe pictures of the boys smiling or something, I dunno. Any great images you have would be awesome if you want to donate to the cuase or know of a great gallery I can shift through.

Also, as far as update goes, the chapter is both written and recorded, now I just have to edit it and add the music track. ^_^

Summary: It started out a simple case. Then it got complicated. And thank you very much, but Dean Winchester does NOT appreciate his life having a soundtrack like a freaking chick flick, even it's starting to resemble one.

I have a fic idea and I already wrote and recorded the first chapter of what will be about a 4 part series if I go through with it. It's a Supernatural fic, case!fic that includes music for plot relevant reasons. Lemme know what you think, please. Dunno if I'm the only one who likes it.

The podfic version is the best version to get the full effect. If you would really like the text version though, lemme know. Also, let me know if the streaming works, never done it before.

Since we have a long weekend coming up, wanted to give you a present to enjoy during your time off. Here is a list of current Dean/Cas recs, a lot of these are podfic form and I'll link to both text and podfic. These are all ones I really, really liked and have listened to recently.

I have more, but I haven't listened to them/read them yet.  :) That will keep you busy anyway.


tenoko1: (Podfic)
I really like listening to podfics- fanfiction in audio format like an audio book. They're great for the gym, on the way to work, road trips, waiting on laundry to finish, doing the dishes, cooking, or basically anything where you can multitask. I also like to record my vocabulary lessons and listen to them, so I can be studying while doing something else.

The problem, and I don't know of a better word really, that I've run into, and in only on instance so far is that sometimes there is a podficcer who I cannot tolerate as the reader. One in particular, that even if a fic sounds fabulous, I will save it to read rather than downloading the podfic version if because the way she reads just makes me angry. She sounds so horribly bored and all of her characters sound whiny and the two fics I've listened to of hers I got maybe 3-5 mins into it and had to turn it off, I couldn't stand anymore.

I know there's back and forth among podficcers as to what they can and can't tolerate when it come to what they listen and a lot of it generally deals with accents, which personally, I think is silly. As long as I can understand what you are saying, I don't care where you hail from and how it affects your inflections. In fact, a lot of accents will make an already adorable scene even cuter because of the way the reader says things. And with my being southern, there's no shortage of slips when my accept is quite obvious in my readings, though I try very hard to keep my voice neutral.

Has anyone else run into a problem where they could not listen to either an audio book or podfic because the reader killed it for you? Perhaps so much so you wanted to re-record it yourself? I remember her name and always just by pass her when searching for fics now, while on the flip side, other readers stand out and I take a second look at perhaps whatever they did because "Oh hey! I listened to this-and-this by this person and they were great! What's this story about?"

Is it considered rude to offer to podfic a fic that has already been podfic? Probably, plus it can also get chaotic with multiple versions, but I think that could also be fun. PODFIC ALL THE THINGS!!!!!

Summary: At first she tried to drown her sorrow in soft drinks and strawberry ice cream, but it didn’t really work.
Disclaimer: Not mine.
A/N: 1. Please note, that it’s Becky’s POV, not mine. I didn’t think it was worth mentioning, but turned out someone can take certain lines personally. Trust me, believing fanfiction is "pathetic" while being a bad fanfiction writer yourself would really be kinda screwed up.
2. I wrote this before “Time for a Wedding”. Several days before it was released, in fact – and I had no idea Becky would appear again. After the episode I decided not to post it, but by some reason changed my mind. Whatever.

Podficcing a book

Monday, July 23rd, 2012 03:37 pm

So. For kicks and giggles, as the idea struck me and sounded fun, incredibly stupid, perhaps, this grand undertaking, but fun nonetheless, and quite frankly, I'd rather not think about the laws I'm probably breaking in the process, but watch as I proceed without care and then play vastly dumb if I get caught.

I am recording myself reading a published book. It won't get an actual audio book, this I know, and hey think of the visually impaired fans of your favorite TV show (yes, blind people can 'watch' TV, Jo does all the time, though sometimes you have to explain what's happening visually). Point being, I have these tie-in novels for Supernatural that I just got and all are suppose to be really good, and I figured for kicks and giggles that I might record the first, say, chapter or two, you know, to get people interested in reading them and get fans to go buy them, thus ensuring that they continue writing books, right? it was strictly an idea to pique the interest of other fans and get them to buy the books. A teaser trailer, if you will. Wet your pallet. Give you a taste.

I'm thinking I may end up doing the whole book. Something must be wrong with me, I know. I did the first 50 pages already (five chapters), which actually, isn't much. 14% according to Goodreads.It's an hour long unedited. I may do it in five chapter sections, since there are forty chapters. Btw, it's Witch's Canyon, by Jeff Mariotte, a Supernatural tie-in that takes place during season two as far as I can tell. WHY AM I DOING THIS?!?!?! I have no explanation other than it's fun. Or I'm a masochist. I never took myself for a masochist, but the signs are there if I willingly subject myself to projects like this when I already don't have time.
