Dear ITPE-er!

HI!!! I'm so excited that you're participating in ITPE! Podfic is one of my favorite forms of fanwork, and podfic fandom is my favorite fandom, and my favorite thing about fandom is interacting with people who love the things that I love. Participating in ITPE is a two-fer: it's a fanwork-form we both love, and we were matched for the fandoms we both love!
The corollary to this, btw, is that, more than anything, I want you to have fun during ITPE. Don't stress out about it. I'll love whatever you make, I promise!

That having been said, if you want some guidance, here's what I like about the fandoms I requested in a bit more detail:


I'm here for the found family feels. Actually, I'm in a lot of places for found family feels, but this fandom is so great for that! movies only please


OT3 foreverrrrr
Sophie is great! Nate is annoying. 

White Collar

ditto on the OT3. As far as I'm concerned the canon here ends sometime around S3: Diana is back, Sara is excellent, El and Peter are rock-solid, and there are no clouds on the horizon. 


Ladies 4 eva. OFCs are fine by me. 

Rivers of London

I do love this fandom, but the things I love in it are complicated. for the sake of ease, I'll say that I'd prefer nothing higher than a PG-13 rating, though shippy stuff is fine.

Fast and the Furious

all the found family forever and ever and ever and ever and ever

Avatar: the last Airbender, Legend of Korra
my darlings


LADIES. also agron/nasir. but mostly ladies. ladies ladies ladies.

Almost Human

Dorian and Kennex are lovely and deserve all the good things. including each other. but also cuddles.

Young Wizards

tiny fandom of my heartface. canon ships only please.

but Jess this isn't very helpful wtf

I'm writing this while kinda sick, so this is a placeholder that will be updated later. promise.




fic elements I adore
focus on minor characters
focus on women
focus on characters of color
focus on genderqueer characters
happy endings! (of any degree of innuendo :D)
funky formats (epistolary, texts, tweets, programming language...)
found families
MANYMANY OTHER THINGS (seriously, I'm pretty easy to please)

chase scenes
no-escape situations (either real or metaphorical – eg backed into a corner, despair, suicidal ideation, variations on "you have nowhere (else) to go", "no one will believe you")
character death (either minor or major)
dub- or non-con
misunderstandings/miscommunication as a plot device
mental health care professionals who suck at their jobs
more-than-canonical gore (applies per canon, so what's ok in spartacus is not in leverage)

Please don't assume that a listed squick is not hard-and-fast because I've podficced something that kinda fits that description. I sometimes find it cathartic to podfic something myself that would give me serious problems otherwise.

If you have any questions, you can ask analise010 or reenajenkins, who have a pretty good handle on my likes and dislikes :D

Fandom: Rivers of London & Good Omens
Characters/Pairing: Peter & Nightingale, Aziraphale/Crowley
Rating: teen and up
Content Notes: none
Length: 00:34:26
Performer Links: [Unknown LJ tag]
Author: [Unknown LJ tag]
Summary: In which Inspector Thomas Nightingale pursues stolen books on magic, Aziraphale presides over a book sale, Constable Peter Grant tries to do his job, and Crowley values his domestic tranquillity.

Reccer Notes: SisterOfWar does such an amazing job with the voices here! Aziraphale slight santimonious edge when he talks about helping the police during "some murders in Whitechapel," Peter being both fascinated by magic and so very tired with the minutiae of policework, Crowley intimidating Peter and doing quite a good job, actually, it's just all really, really well done, and one of my favorite small-fandom podfics <333

Fandom: Sense8
Characters/Pairing: Sun & Kala
Rating: general audiences
Content Notes: major character death
Length: 0:13:08
Performer Links: hananobira and bienenalster
Author: pax
Cover Artist: (?)
Summary: Sun’s dad kinda sucked. Kala loans her a better one.

Reccer Notes: this podfic was made as part of this year's pod_together, and it's a great example of a good idea executed well. Hananobira and Bienenalster each take a pov, Kala and Sun respectively, and the narration and dialogue switches between them aurally much as the show does visually. The switches between the voices are well done and flow naturally, probably in part because, as a pod_together project, the podficcers and the writer worked together to craft a story that would work aurally as well as on the page - and, imo, in does.

Fandom: Star Wars (Prequels Trilogy)
Characters/Pairing: Qui-Gon[&|/]Obi-Wan (reccer note: the story and series are marked Qui-Gon/Obi-Wan, but this story occupies, imo, the gray space between gen and slash best described as pre-slash, and if you go in expecting slash, you may be disappointed in that regard. hopefully not others! but that regard, at least)
Rating: Teen and Up
Content Notes: none
Length: 5:41:27
Performer Links: rippleeffect aka chibi_tenshi08
Author: flamethrower
Cover Artist: (flamethrower?)
Summary: A simple injury during what should have been a routine mission brings shocking changes to the lives of Qui-Gon Jinn and Obi-Wan Kenobi, and may alter the future of the Jedi Order.

Reccer Notes: I really like this podfic you guys. Rippleeffect has excellent diction and pacing, does a really good job differentiating the many voices, and their narration fits very well with the tone of the story. The story is quite long but they did an excellent job throughout, and it's one of my favorite stories for very long trips. 

note: this is the first part in a VERY EPIC series, but in my opinion it ends on a very satisfactory note and stands alone well, so I'm comfortable reccing it as its own podfic.

Fandom: Young Wizards
Characters/Pairing: [personal profile] bienenalster
Rating: general audience
Content Notes: spoilers for Wizards at War
Length: 1:08:56
Performer Links: asda
Author: [personal profile] aria
Summary: "Ronan," the Lone Power said softly. "Didn't He leave you out? You gave your life, and He abandoned you. What good are you without Him?"

Reccer Notes: I love bienenalster's narration, which has that lovely slightly dreamy wonder-at-the-world quality that comes through in both the canon and this story. Their Ronan voice is similarly well done and hits all the complicated emotional beats of the story, and the podfic is just really nicely done <3

Title: And Never Been Kissed
Authors: [Unknown LJ tag] and [Unknown LJ tag]
Reader: [personal profile] kalakirya
Fandom: Hockey RPF
Pairings: Sid/Geno
Rating: explicit
Summary: Sid didn’t introduce himself in the hallway, and he certainly doesn’t assume that people know who he is. So it would only be polite to thank Malkin again, this time more personally.
He could write him a letter. An email? No, a letter.

(note: themusecalliope pointed out that I mispronounced "Wilkes-Barre", which can be pronounced a number of ways, but not the way I actually said it XD it turned out to be too difficult to do a pick-up for that bit, though, and given that it was still clear what I meant to say, I left it in. But let it be known that that's my mistake, not themusecalliope's, who is wonderful in all ways <3<3<3)

pennyplainknits is also podficcing this story! her version is here
