    I decided to try out podficcing, and I thought the best way to do it would be to try recording one of the snippets I've written, as snippets are very short and I don't risk butchering someone else's work. ;)

    Unlike when I speak naturally, my voice seems to go gravelly almost immediately when I start reading aloud. I tried my best to keep my voice smooth, but it gets rough in a few places. Oh well.

    Warning: Angst
    Author's Note: This was written for the DS/C6D tag event being run on LJ's ds_noticeboard and DW's [community profile] duesouth. Wihluta had to pass on the tag so [personal profile] mergatrude gets me instead for the prompt "seasons." The song referenced is Turn, Turn, Turn (to Everything There is a Season) by the Byrds. You can listen to it here on Youtube. It is based off of Ecclesiastes 3:1-8. You can read the King James (Cambridge ed.) version here. I'm not 100% satisfied with this piece. All the same, I'm considering turning this into a series based on all of the "times" listed in the verses, but I'm not sure if I can come up with something for every one of them. Still, let me know if there's interest, and I'll see what I can do. This fic can also be found on my LJ.

    Okay, I'm still a day behind here (Oops, it's gone midnight now so make that two), but here we go. 

    In your own space, post a rec for at least three fanworks that you did not create. Drop a link to your post in the comments. See if you can rec fanworks that are less likely to be praised: tiny fandoms, rare pairings, fanworks other than stories, lesser known kinks or tropes. Find fanworks that have few to no comments, or creators new to a particular fandom and maybe aren't well known or appreciated. Appreciate them.

      I'm sticking to vids for this set of recs. 

    1. The Scientist Vidder: jcjoeyfreak Fandom: Hard Core Logo Song: The Scientist Artist: Coldplay Pairing: Joe/Billy Hosted On: Youtube Warnings: SPOILERS, violence, language, implied slash Download Link: None that I know of
    I seriously love this vid so, so much. It's got a ton of views so obviously I'm not the only one. Hopefully, it's new to someone who reads this though. It tells the story of the fictitious Canadian punk rock band Hard Core Logo in reverse. And it's awesome. 

    2. Fractured Vidder: FindingMyFantasy Fandom: Firefly/Serenity Song: Plugged In Artist: Evermore Character: River Tam Hosted On: Youtube Warning: skeletons Download Link: None that I know of
    This is an excellent River-centric vid. The timing on it is fantastic. The lyrics, which are actually spoken word, fit so perfectly with the Alliance's goals and perspective. It's got some of the best editing of River dancing and fighting that I've ever seen. 

    3. The Kill Vidder: Superkc/[personal profile] krickets Fandom: Hard Core Logo Song: The Kill Artist: 30 Seconds to Mars Pairing: Joe/Billy Hosted On: Imeem (I think?) embedded on an LJ page Warnings: SPOILERS, violence, implied slash Download Link: YES
    Here we have another HCL vid. I have watched this soo many times. I really don't know what to say about it besides "it's excellent and you should watch it!" I'm really not very good at this reccing thing. There's just so much angst in this vid and I love it. It's got neat voice overs from the movie and a couple effects deftly applied.

    I have decided to participate in this 15 day challenge as much as I can.

    So...Day 1 (1 day late):

    In your own space, post a rec for at least three fanworks that you have created. It can be your favorite fanworks that you've created, or fanworks you feel no one ever saw, or fanworks you say would define you as a creator.

    You can find my works under the cut. )

    Author’s Notes: Con-crit is welcome. This is my first posted snippet. (I have others waiting for the next amnesty challenge.) I was going for an atmospheric piece, but I think I had a hard time cramming all of their not-doing-much-of-anything into a paragraph so the pace may be stilted toward the end. I think an extra hundred words would have done me nicely.
