Happy Sunday night! As I'm waiting for my LJ entries and comments to import to DW, here's a reclist full of awesome works of fic and art for a challenge I just co-modded, spnspringfling! I haven't gotten through everything, but what I've seen to so far has been so wonderful:

ART
Sam/Dean, + Jody and Cas comic of hilarity
Amazing Smith/Wesson comic!!!!
Demonic ostrich-riding Sam and Dean
Sam watches Dean try to cook...bwee!


FIC
Dean/Crowley Hogwarts AU
Awesome Jo/Bela fic!
J2 curse AU
Amelia gen fic with a cute animal
Claire/Alex, Sam/Dean fake husbands at prom!
2nd person Sam gen


This really is one of my favorite exchanges of the year! Enjoy!

[livejournal.com profile] frozen_delight wrote me the most excellent gift for [livejournal.com profile] spn_j2_xmas featuring Mary slowly realizing that her sons are together~! It is so great! Read and comment here!!!!!!
glovered: (platonic handshake)
I'm in Portland visiting my sister! It has been over 90 degrees every day and is a great city to be vegetarian in. I CAN EAT THE WORLD! And we have consumed a looot of tea, pretty much constantly, including an iced oolong I loved called Wizard's Eyebrow.

Speaking of wizards, I just devoured an awesome Harry/Draco fic recommended to me by [livejournal.com profile] mistyzeo - The Stately Homes of Wiltshire by waspabi. If post-series Auror Harry being assigned to watch out for trying-to-get-by lord of Malfoy Manor Draco (with a side of ghosts!) is your thing, go read it right now!

I'm finding with podfic that I'll follow podficcers into other fandoms I'm only vaguely familiar with. Recently I listened to some 1d fic read by [livejournal.com profile] aethel, including one hilarious one called Fine By Me (if you never leave).

Anyway, recs!
glovered: (platonic handshake)
I've only been able to get to a couple [livejournal.com profile] spnspringfling so far because running the challenge! It was a total blast. Here are some recs I have for you so far:

[ART]Character Bleed by [livejournal.com profile] cassiopeia7
[ART]Do Not Cross by [livejournal.com profile] alethiometry - This is the best thing ever! It's so sad and nostalgic.
[ART]Once More, With Feeling, by [livejournal.com profile] marietwist
[ART]Shadows of Friends, Of Those He Knew by [livejournal.com profile] quickreaver
Blueberry Pancakes by [livejournal.com profile] walking_tornado
The Gift by [livejournal.com profile] lyryk

Also the past 3 episodes have been absolutely hilarious/heartbreaking/awesome. *____*

Attention inhabitants of my flist. I just finished the Captive Prince series and am very emotional about it (read: crying happy/nostalgic tears into my pillow). I highly recommend you drop what you're doing right now and read them.

I consumed the first two books on livejournal a few years ago and now they've been rl published and the third one was just as incredible. I cannot believe it's over...what do you even do after a journey like that? [livejournal.com profile] freece is a golden god.

Happy New Years!




I'm very amused and pleased for my first rec of the year to be my sister's Dean/Death fic -- a ship to which I am very opposed because I really ship Sam/Death in a joking but also not joking way? Please refer to this sexy dialog between them. ANYWAYS. Please go read A True Gentleman! Summary: A gentleman's name should only appear in the newspaper three times in his life: when he's born, when he gets married, and when he dies..

Also, you should watch the following webseries:
- Other Space - hilarious, and created by the Bridesmaids guy.
- Lily Fever - a very strange lesbian kdrama webseries. Make sure to watch it in order because I did not at first.

glovered: (story of our lives)
I was thinking today about how many awesome people have taken time to podfic, and how I have never made a good list of people who've spent time podficcing my fic specifically, in all of its ridiculousness. I love that we can have fandom at all times and in many different formats and that we can collaborate to make things despite vast differences in location in time and space.

So here's a list, in no particular order! I've immensely enjoyed all of these, and have learned a lot from them about making podfic myself. And look at all the pretty coverart!! I heart all of your faces.


Fill it up with something, read by [livejournal.com profile] fantamae: Hypothermia.

Better than before, read by [livejournal.com profile] lavishsqualor: Dean + cigarettes, sound & smell of rain

What must be mine, read by [livejournal.com profile] fantamae: Dean really wants to confess his big love, but Sam is not having it. Also, part of RoboSam's shenanigans are unearthed.

Mistakes, they're memories made, read by [livejournal.com profile] colls: Sam deliberates the legitimacy of fortunes and worries soulless-self may have let on too much.

Windfall for the nonbeliever, read by [livejournal.com profile] heardtheowl: After Sam's first Hell flashback, he and Dean work a job that means posing as a couple in a planned community. *I would like to say that asking me to record the beginning of each part of her podfic was so lovely on [livejournal.com profile] heardtheowl's part, but as I did not own a microphone at this time I sound a little cray :3

Sew your fortunes on a string, read by [livejournal.com profile] colls: It's Vegas week and despite everything, Dean's got his money on Sam showing up.

Learn to say the same thing, read by [livejournal.com profile] fantamae: As the purpose of this weekend is to get to know one another, please wear your name tag at all times. Sam and Dean end up at a single's retreat in the mountains and run into old friends.

His most excellent wardrobe, read by [livejournal.com profile] fantamae: robo!Sam's ruffly pants are the stuff of fairytale.

You're mah brother, and I love u, read by [livejournal.com profile] colls: badfic idol wing!fic

Walk away now, read by [livejournal.com profile] fantamae: Sam and Dean might be cursed. Every time they try to split up, ridiculous mishaps befall them.

As simple as that, read by [livejournal.com profile] oddishly: Dean tracks Sam's cellphone GPS and sits awkwardly in the Impala in every motel parking lot Sam stays in until Sam storms out and asks him if he thinks he's being subtle.

Talks with Death, read by [livejournal.com profile] fantamae: Sam is distant and Dean needs a confidant.

Wherefore these dim monuments, read by [livejournal.com profile] applegeuse, followed by a second version, read by [livejournal.com profile] fantamae: Sam is going to be offended if Dean doesn't kiss him in public on Valentine's Day.
glovered: (a lonely lover's charm)
I've been listening to a good amount of podfic whilst trying to keep a straight face in case coworkers surprise me (like a few days ago when I was on the verge of tears listening to Flying Weight ;_____;) Here are some that I've really enjoyed:

Sam/Dean
Flying Weight by [livejournal.com profile] fleshflutter & read by [livejournal.com profile] meansprite: Sam wakes after being soulless for three years to discover that Dean and his relationship with him have undergone some serious changes. Through traveling and hunting with Dean, Sam struggles to put his life back together after events he has only limited memory of. A season six wincest AU.


Harry/Draco
Tissue of Silver by [livejournal.com profile] fearlessdiva & read by [livejournal.com profile] pandarus: "As it / Were tissue of silver / I'll wear, O fate, thy grey, / And go mistily radiant, clad / Like the moon." / -- "Fate Defied" by Adelaide Crapsey


J2
We're still more in love than you think we are by [livejournal.com profile] forallthewords & read by [livejournal.com profile] exmanhater: High school AU. Jared pines, Jensen toes the line, then some other boring junk happens.

Unequivocal Sex Invite by miss_begonia & read by [livejournal.com profile] dodificus: Clueless!AU.

And it's a whole new ballgame by [livejournal.com profile] kestrelsan & read by ursa1ita: "Don't tell me about the world. Not today. It's springtime and they're knocking baseball around fields where the grass is damp and green in the morning and the kids are trying to hit the curve ball." - Pete Hamill
glovered: (cloud)
This round of Spring Fling is seriously awesome. Below are more recs! I am dreading going to work tomorrow, but am going to go really early so I can sit there by myself and mentally catch up. Can get through this week! And so can you!

recs

Foxholes, Anna/Bela/Jo - This is incredibly perfect. Please go read it, it's such a lovely piece, possibly my favorite of this round.

I Want You, Soulless!Sam/Dean - EVERYTHING I WANT FROM A SOULLESS!SAM FIC. The characterization is so so excellent. This was such a fun read.

Contraband, Bobby & Crowley gen - I loved this, and not just because I adore Bobby and Crowley interactions in canon. It's sort of a non-AU future fic, and so nostalgic and the worldbuilding is beautiful.

Only Came for My Princess, Jared/Jensen - Excellent colors and I'm a sucker for walking-away-from-explosion scenes

O were my love yon Lilac fair, Sam/Cas - This was a great AU, just really pretty and I recommend it to every one of you

Set Out Running, Sam/Jensen - I am in love with this fic. It's s8 where Jensen is the vet who Sam meets after hitting the dog

Hide and Go Seek, Sam & demon!Dean gen - creepy with a really fun cameo

For Your Eyes Only , Sam/Dean - really pretty black & white & blue art

Cemetery Dreams, Jared/Jensen - undead!Jared & high school cheerleader Jensen. This is unnerving and great and so well-written.

Let her under your skin, Jody/Linda - a great look at a what a quiet understanding would look like between these two

So I got a full-time job. After all these years of applying to jobs, it should feel a lot more exciting than it does. I think I jumped the excitement step and went straight to stressing about it, because yeah, it's really stressful, I finally get paid juuuust enough to pay my bills and have a little left over every month. I guess that's the dream? I just wish that I didn't have to sacrifice my middle-of-the-afternoon video gaming, but I guess nothing's perfect.

Anyway, this sudden full-time job happened the same week [livejournal.com profile] spnspringfling started, so life has been a mess. A fun mess, but homg, was matching & posting etc intense. AND SPEAKING OF SPRING FLING, I come bearing recs before reveals this weekend!

Here are some that I have adored so far:
Letters from a Half-Finished Boy, Sam/Dean - absolutely perfect pre-series, read it now
The First of Many, Sam/Dean ART - Really awesome, detailed happy art
That's what makes it fun, Dean/Crowley pre-slash - I've really enjoyed recent Dean/Crowley interactions, and this is a cool scene exploring that
Finding a throat to choke, Sam/Ruby - A really lovely scene of despair between s3&4
I am become..., Dean & Death gen ART - great comic that packs an emotional punch
The Junk in Baby’s Trunk, Sam Dean & Charlie gen - a hurty gen piece with fun details
the age of miracles, Sam & Jody gen-so perfectly in-character, it feels like a great missing scene from the show

I hope I'll have time to read/gaze at more tomorrow!!! Seriously this job is taking up all my time, and I am very unimpressed.

Also, see this cool podfic feedback fest. One of the activities is you send postcards to readers you love. Sounds fun!

Last and final thing - I'm really sad about Zayn leaving 1D. I'm not in 1D fandom, but I really love them and hope they're all ok (as much as I can hope millionaire celebrities are doing ok, I guess).

There's a piece of the puzzle known as life, written by [livejournal.com profile] strippedpink & read by [livejournal.com profile] juice817:
Sometimes you just can’t help yourself.

Podcast
This is an excellent podcast about podficcing! There are only three episodes so far, and I've greatly enjoyed it.

Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy book on tape. I was somewhat to very hungover this morning from (two surprisingly potent bottles of) cider [livejournal.com profile] oddishly and I made, and listening to the beginning of this was like a soothing breeze on my head. So great.

Other Recs
the boardgame "Pandemic"
jalepenos on pizza

I foolishly prompted a What Is and What Should Never Be-verse prompt over at the hoodie-time comment meme, and [livejournal.com profile] roque_clasique wrote me the most beautiful fic, that has left me very distraught. It is so very wonderful and also heart-wrenching, that bastard.

Happy 2015

Sickness has fallen down upon my head, just in time for Christmas. But I wanted to come wish everyone a happy holidays and leave a rec for an amazing epistolary IT Crowd fic I got for Yuletide!!! I am that faily person who has yet to formulate an adequately joyous response, but definitely go read it yourselves!

Tonight is my ten year high school reunion. Life is so weird.

You guys, it is December. I'm not sure how. And it rained for the second time since last winter. It's still trying to drizzle outside, so I'm lying down on a mat in my living room with my mini heater on, drinking green tea and watching fanvids. So cozy! I plan to keep working on my [livejournal.com profile] spn_j2_xmas fic, but we shall see.

I'm still doing this silly tmi meme over here if you wish to tmi me, and I've been trying to find people with the December Days memes, so drop me a line if you're doing it so I can go prompt things!

Anyway, enough blabber. I bring you assorted recs!

- Firstly, go do yourself a favor and watch the 10 episode Cartoon Network show Over the Garden Wall. It is exceptionally good!

- I don't watch The Fall but my sister sent me this hilariously excellent After Ellen recap of Gillian Anderson's character kissing one of the other women on the show. I really do love me a snarky recap.

- This Utena MV that my other sister sent me is just amazing. I was a huge fan of this fucked up anime, so the vid made me very nostalgic.


PODFIC RECS

Supernatural Gen
Rumspringa, written by [livejournal.com profile] july_july_july & read by [livejournal.com profile] nickelmountain:
I don’t know if you notice anything missing, like the leaves on the trees or my clothes all over the floor. I don’t know if you even notice at all. Cause I was real quiet when I closed the door. – Fink, “This Is The Thing”

J2
Not for Internal Use, written by [livejournal.com profile] mistyzeo & read by [livejournal.com profile] fishpatrol: The hot produce guy has his hands full of cucumbers, and Jared knows what he would assume right away if he were in the guy's position.

Merlin
Four Times Merlin Cock-Blocked Arthur, and One Time He Didn’t, written by [livejournal.com profile] oxoniensis & read by [livejournal.com profile] eosrose: He doesn't mean to the first time. Truly. It was an honest mistake.

Not in This Land Alone, written by [livejournal.com profile] torakowalski & read by [livejournal.com profile] crinklysolution: Modern AU. When Merlin Emrys gets a summer job at Buckingham Palace, he doesn't expect to even meet King Arthur, let alone become involved in protecting him from a plot to overthrow the monarchy.

Pavlov Penis, written by [livejournal.com profile] derryere & read by [livejournal.com profile] eosrose:

How could I forget to rec the podfic [livejournal.com profile] colls was good enough to do of my horrifying 2013 [livejournal.com profile] wincon bad fic idol submission? It is called "You're Mah Brother, and I Love U." Enjoy.

Unfortunately, I can't go to [livejournal.com profile] wincon this year (or friends' weddings) because I am once again jobless. O, brief stint of temp jobbery! How I miss thee. I still have no idea how people irl manage to become employed. I keep considering going back to customer service jobs but I really really hate them and am very bad at them. Anyway, brief rant over. Fortunately, I have never not been relatively broke, so it is not as disappointing as it could be.

I wish good fortune upon you all. Happy Thursday.

So life has been stupid-busy lately, and that is just not on. I have been struggling to work on my big bang late at night but always fall asleep instead of getting more than a couple paragraphs down. Is it just me, or is working kiiiind of like being paid not to do things you really want to do? It is very tragic. But I have next week off! So I am going to write err day, all day. Please join me.

For now, I bring you this hilariously apt summation of the YA novel as a thing, Just a Normal Bestselling Teen, along with some excellent podfic I've snickered over/tried not to cry over at my desk while doing endless data entry:

Sam/Dean

Trust me I'm a doctor, written by [livejournal.com profile] checkthemargins & read by [livejournal.com profile] eosrose: The one where Dean is a pediatric neurosurgeon and Sam is a law student and they are in love.

Taking the fifth, written by [livejournal.com profile] astolat & read by [livejournal.com profile] cosmo_naught: "Dean Winchester?" Sam said. "I'm Sam Moore. I'm your lawyer." (AU inspired by 2x07, The Usual Suspects)
