Fandom: Megillah
Characters/Pairing: Esther/Ahashverosh
Rating: Mature (language)
Content Notes: no archive warnings apply
Length: 11:32

Cover Artist: [personal profile] chestnut_filly
Summary: Esther is the motherfucking queen of Persia and also better than you. Get ready to Megillah like it's 5776.

Reccer Notes: This podfic is entirely hilarious and I adore it beyond reason. If I had to pick my favorite moment, right at this exact moment I'd have to choose the bit where she voices "¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡", but yesterday it was ".... not fine" and the day before it was "I have never pictured this banquet before, but y'know, life is a rich tapestry" and the day was any other one of the hilarious, amazingly sharp lines. <3

Characters/Pairing: Eric Staal/Jeff Skinner

Cover Artist:
Summary: When Canadian figure skater Jeff Skinner wrecked his knee, he never could have imagined that he'd end up helping pay his way through college as a live-in babysitter for Eric Staal's three-year-old son, Joey.

Reccer Notes: This is one of myt favorite podfics for long car or airplane rides. The story is lovely, but more importantly, isweedan has excellent pacing and diction, and you (ok, *I*) fall in love with Jeff instantly, and then in love with Eric and Joey right along with Jeff. isweedan's affection for the characters really shines through the whole thing and it's really lovely to listen to <3

Characters/Pairing: Darcy & Avengers, Darcy/Steve
Rating: teen and up
Content Notes: no archive warnings apply
Length: 59:12
Performer Links: shmaylor
Author: sevenfoxes
Summary: Seven times the Avengers' weapons have liked Darcy better (and one time the Avenger liked her even more).

Reccer Notes: Shmaylor does a really nice job with everyone's voice, but most especially Darcy. The way she reads Darcy's snarky asides brings both the character and the story to life, and the whole thing is just really fun. Her complete disgust at Bucky and Steve talking about Twilight gives me liiiiiiiiiiiiiiiife :D

Fandom: Marvel Cinematic Universe/Welcome to Nightvale
Characters/Pairing: Jasper Sitwell/Jemma Simmons, background Clint/Coulson
Rating: general audiences
Content Notes: creator chose not to warn (crack, homophobic language, hydra, general nightvale weirdness)
Length: 2:40:01
Performer Links: daroos (ably assisted by artzbots, blackglass, girlwithabubblegun, kalakirya, opalsong, reena_jenkins, and sabinelagrande)
Author: pagination
Cover Artist: reena_jenkins
Summary: The thing is, when an agent reaches clearance level five, it’s because they’re valuable, capable of something an exponentially diminishing few can offer in the ranks of SHIELD. Clint Barton, his personal issues notwithstanding, is unstoppable behind a scope. Jim Woo is an analyst and extractor par excellence. Melinda May has infiltrated half the presidential offices of Asia, and Phil Coulson has an instinct for the unusual that could be the basis of an entire TV show.

Jasper’s less certain what he brings to the party

Reccer Notes: ok, so yes, I'm in this, but the fact that I love it has relationship to anything else about it. Though there are a bunch of podficcers credited, it's really daroos' baby: she voiced Sitwell and did all the production, while everyone else does guest voices on individual characters. The overall effect is very NIghtvale-y, which in my opinion balances the MCU-focus of the plot and characters very nicely. The guest voices are quite good, but Daroos' Sitwell is excellent, and give the character a lot more depth than he got in the MCU itself - even if that depth comes by way of a mismatched dick and Formless Seed of Evil. It makes sense in context.
Unless you particularly avoid music in podfic, I recommend the music version - the music adds an amazing dimension to the whole thing; my favorite is In the Hall of the Mountain King, which is one of my favorite uses of music in podfic of all time :D

Dear ITPE-er!

HI!!! I'm so excited that you're participating in ITPE!


Do tell! What are your #ITPE feelings?

  1. aI genuinely love podfic. It’s a medium and community that works really well for me on a number of levels.

    1. Corollary: you are making podfic within some of my favorite fandoms, with the intent of making me happy. I’ll love it, I promise.

  2. I really love this challenge, and would like other people to enjoy it as well. Especially you!

    1. Corollary: it’s set during a very busy time of year. This is meant to be a low-stress challenge. Please don’t get too worked up on my account. I’ll love it, I promise.

  3. I’m generally pretty easy to please, and try to be clear about where those limits are. They’re there, but they’re usually fairly easily avoided.

    1. Corollary: unless you’re actually deliberately trying to mess with me, I’ll love it, I promise.

    2. Corollary: guidance is helpful.

      1. Secondary corollary: with the exception of the squicks and triggers, these are guidelines, nor rules. Feel free to play fast and loose with them if you think the situation demands it :D


Okay, so what are your general fannish, genre and canon feelings?

At the moment, my rule of thumb is that my tolerance for angst and violence in fandom goes as deep as the canon does. So for Spartacus, anything up to and included truly ridiculous amounts of gore is gonna be fine, but in White Collar, anything worse than, say, moderate and non-fatal mayhem won’t be great; similarly, body horror in Rivers of London would be fine, but not in Leverage. Likewise, Fast and the Furious isn’t particularly angsty, so I’m not a great fan of Brian being emo, but Miles Vorkosigan is a fabulously angsty muffin, so I’m onboard with him and his crew wallowing in their feelings.


On the other hand, my tolerance for fluff exceeds cavity-inducing levels with no regard for canon. Should you decide that what I need in my life is Dom and Mia Toretto sibling-bonding over fluffy bunnies, I encourage you to embrace that thought thoroughly.

             Note the first: though some of these canons (Spartacus, Vorkosigan, Young Wizards) feature major character death, I’d argue very strongly that all of them are hopeful/redemptory. So while major character death (and non-canonical rape and excessive violence) isn’t (aren’t) a deal breaker, a non-happy ending kinda is.

Story-wise, stories set in canon are fine. AUs, be they human, animal, or sentient dinnerware, are fine by me. Fusions and so on are fine, but please don’t fuse with a canon that you don’t know I’m familiar with and like (e.g. No Hannibal fusions. Ask analise010 or reenajenkins if you need help on this one.) I adore secondary characters and learning more about them and their background and their story and how they fit into and feel about the main story. I adore day-in-the-life and humor and geekiness and happy flailing.

Format wise, I’m very easy to please. If you find a fic you think I’d like, go for it. If you find a chatlog, headcanon, interview, poem, squee, meta, or whatever, that you think I’ll like, go for it.


I need more detail: what are your fandom- and pairing- specific feelings?


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. I adore everyone in this boyband. I am happy to ship everyone in this boyband, including all the poly. Have at it.

Sidenote: things that I am not currently interested in that feature heavily in some parts of fandom include Tony’s Mommy&Daddy Issues, Bruce’s (and Tony’s) feelings of inadequacy, Pepper-bashing


I’m mostly here for the OT3 and gen. I love Sophie, but Nate and his issues annoy me.

White Collar

ditto on the OT3. As far as I'm concerned the canon here ends sometime around S3: Diana is back (but Lauren can stay!), Sara is excellent, El and Peter are rock-solid, and there are no clouds on the horizon. Fandom seems to agree with me on many of these, so I shouldn’t think you’ll have much trouble, should you decide to go in this direction. This is a great fandom for h/c, should you decide to go that way, though please give me my happy ending J


I have many many feelings about everyone: Miles, Cordelia, Aral, Ekaterin, Gregor, Simon, Elena, Kareen, Alys, Ivan, Taura, Tej, Laisa, Ethan, Bothari, Elli, Dono, Jole… Everyone. They are my darlings. All of them should have everything they deserve, with everything that entails.

Mark’s Black Gang are a bit tricky for me, so that really the one element I’d rather you steered clear of. Several excellent fics in this fandom feature historical Barrayaran OFCs and I encourage you not to discount them.

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 for Peter/Thomas, though shippy stuff is fine. Beverly and her extended family are great.s Abigail is great. Lesley is great. Molly is great.

Fast and the Furious

All the found family forever and ever and ever and ever and ever. Dom/Brian is excellent, Mia/Brian is excellent, poly is fine and excellent, though I’d rather it was non-incestuous, please. This is another good fandom for h/c.

Avatar: the last Airbender, Legend of Korra

My darlings! I adore these kiddos. Have at it.

Note: I’d rather not have sexy shenanigans about underaged characters. Once Korra and Asami, for instance, are both 18, have at it.


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. I just want them to be happy.

Young Wizards

Tiny fandom of my heartface. I love them so much. So much. So so so much. All of them. Everyone. In every time and place.


XENA/GABRIELLE 4EVA. That is all. (gen is also good :D)


I do need to know your squicks and triggers…

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")

dub- or non-con

misunderstandings/miscommunication as a plot device

mental health care professionals who suck at their jobs

chase scenes (Fast and the Furious gets an exception, but no one else does)

more-than-canonical gore (see first paragraph under “general feelings”)

major character death that isn’t happy/redemptory (see note under first paragraph of “general feelings”)


What if I have questions that you didn’t answer here?

Then you can ask on this post anonymously, or ask analise010 or reenajenkins, who have a pretty good handle on my likes and dislikes :D

Have fun <3

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

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.

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

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.
