adventures-in-podficcing

Twice in the first six chapters I’ve noticed that I accidentally used SPG lyrics in the narration. The first one I realized shortly after I’d written it, the second I didn’t catch until I read it out loud.

It’s like an Easter egg hunt.

So there’s a fantastic Martin/Diego fic I really want to podfic but I’m terrified of what I’d do for Diego’s accent… if there’s no accent is that weird? Of course it’s weird, I can hear Diego in my head! How am I supposed to overcome that? Ehh. 

ps/spoiler alert/btw my spanish accent is horrendous. Well, it would be horrendous if it weren’t actually nonexistent. As in, never. ever.

Though, if we were looking for snort-worthy outtake ridiculousness, I’m sure I could oblige. 

[podfic] Adventures in Glass and Proof God Loves Us

Title: Adventures in Glass

Writer/Reader: fresne

Fandom: Sherlock BBC

Pairings: Sherlock/John

Series: Variations on an Equation series, this is a series of Omegaverse stories that AU each other. Each story is a variation on a gender pairing of Sherlock/John as male, female, alpha, omega, beta. This particular story is FemaleOmega-Sherlock/MaleAlpha-John. 

Rating: NC-17 

Size: 15.3, 43:31

Warnings: Omegaverse. Sherlock disguising his/her gender, but not in the way you might think. Venetian Renaissance parlour style discussions. Also, porn with solid (and therefore sturdy)  glass sex toys.

Summary: The currents of gossip flowed over the bridges and canals of Venice. Words might reach the ear of Father Moriarti from the lips of that scandalous Irena Adle, or not. They were not always speaking. Venice lived up on scandal.

Sherlott Holmia was always good for a topic as she and that Alpha of hers ran about Venice looking for sources of colours for their glassworks, or were captured by Turkish pirates while in pursuit of true blue, or were shipwrecked in pursuit of soda glass. Everyone whispered that Giovanni Vatti must be in love with Sherlott, if the number of “Amazing"s and "Fantastic"s ejaculating from his mouth at her every deed were any indication. Oh, and the scandal of her twin sister. Venice was well fed by that household. Simply delicious.

Title: Proof God Loves Us

Writer/Reader: fresne

Fandom: Sherlock BBC

Pairings: Sherlock/John

Series: Variations on an Equation series, this is a series of Omegaverse stories that AU each other. Each story is a variation on a gender pairing of Sherlock/John as male, female, alpha, omega, beta. This particular story is FemaleOmega-Sherlock/MaleAlpha-John. Title from a Benjamin Franklin quote.

Rating: NC-17 

Size: 11, 33:41

Warnings: Omegaverse. Settings 1600s New England. Sex toys.

Summary: Master Fight-the-Good-Fight-of-Faith Watson was born into sin. Everyone was. It was the way things were. Even worse, he’d presented as an Omega, which was surely a sign he had been marked by a demon in his Mother’s womb.

He had a picture in his head of Sherlock Holmes from his letters. Which even that pronoun was an example of how he wasn’t good at deducing from the available facts. The reverse not being true…

Okay, I’ve done all the recording I’m going to do for the day. I’m just editing it all together. Chapters 1 - 6 are going to be one long file.

My process for this is ridiculous. I have to record on my phone because my laptop picks up its own internal sounds (maybe I should name it Steve) and the audio just generally isn’t good when I use it. Then I have to import to iMovie, and I’m still figuring out what corners I can cut as far as optimizing goes to save time when all I really want is audio. Then I splice it all together in there.

what is technology and how do I use it

oh chapter one

back when I had no idea where I was going with this story

chapter one you’re adorable

and then there’s chapter three where I basically invented Steve’s superhearing for the sake of an interesting paragraph

and then there’s chapter five where mICHAEL WHY DO YOU TALK SO MUCH OW THIS HURTS (that’s me complaining about my throat not Steve complaining about his ears)
