So [personal profile] tinypinkmouse linked some of her podfics of my stories to my originals on A03, including some she did over the summer--and which I'd had no clue even existed! This post at amplificathon includes links to podfics (and, of course, my original texts) for "Four Times Tony Stark Met Erik Lenscherr (And One Time He Didn't)" (Iron Man/XMM, Tony & Erik, minor het pairings), "Master and Commander" (Sarah Connor Chronicles, John/Allison), and "The Myrrh-Bearer's Gospel" (Biblefic, Mary Magdalene/Joanna). I'm especially excited about that last one, because I don't even know how to describe it, but there's something about [personal profile] tinypinkmouse's reading that just works for me (I think part of it is the congruence of her non-American accent with the non-American characters), and I'm not ashamed to admit that I choked up at a couple places as I listened to the podfic.

Plus she recorded Road to Emmaus (Firefly, Book, gen), which I did know about before, but can't remember if I mentioned in this journal or not.

And which reminds me that [personal profile] eosrose also recorded a couple of my stories over the past year, and even though I did know about those, looking over my recent entries I never pimped them here. So let me point out that she recorded Fatherhood (Parent Trap, Nick, gen) and Last Day on Earth (Ender's Game, Val & Peter, gen).

Lastly, recent acquisitions in technology related to present-giving on Christmas Day mean that I'm once again able to record podfic, so I spent this morning recording and then editing a podfic (link is to sendspace; it's a 23:40 mp3) of "Tiens, Voilà Dix Sous, pour la Salle-de-Bains" [text] (Buffy, Buffy/Darla).
alixtii: Riley and Venom, from Season 4. (Riley/Venom 2)
I know that my updating lately is inconsistent, and a large part of that is how I position myself in fandom; I still think of myself largely as a Buffy fan, and of course since I'm not up to date on the comics or anything (and don't seem to be able to find the time to participate in [ profile] femslash_minis) there isn't much to be said. But these are the shows that are currently airing which I do make a point of keeping up-to-date with:

Doctor Who
The Guild
In Plain Sight

I'm pretty sure that's pretty much the entire list.

And all of this is more or less an introduction to my saying . . . I think last Sunday's In Plain Sight (which I finally watched today) might well have contained one of the greatest scenes in the history of television. Love love love.

ETA: Obviously Sarah Jane Adventures would be on this list too were it not for Liz Sladen's sad death--although Wikipedia claims that the filmed episodes of Series 5 will air this fall.

So, the actress who played Mezoti (the Borg little girl) on Star Trek: Voyager? Apparently played "Girl Student" in Serenity. Which, if you remember, was also the name of the role played by Demetra Raven, aka Jenny Grimaldi, aka the baseball girl from "Chosen," the Buffy series finale. What, did Whedon only hire extras for that scene if they had the appropriate geek credentials? (Except not, because the actors playing the other kids don't have anything interesting to be said about them.)

(Also, !Mezoti's IMDB page picture? Guh, although not exactly subtle. If only there were a way to AU canon enough to get aged-up Naomi/Mezoti. But Naomi's accelerated aging would be a pain in trying to get that to work, not that canon ever really remembered that detail anyway, not to mention that when the relevant subpart of canon ends, they're in opposite quadrants of the galaxy. Maybe one could abandon the pretense altogether and just write Scarlett/Marley RPF. I don't know, at a con or something. Whatever.)

(And Demetra's web site makes me wince. Just, no. Please, God, no. Jenny Grimaldi would have better sense. And also be too busy fighting vampires and/or playing baseball.)

(Now I really want to buy Scarlett's EP, because, I don't even know why. I do love one of the reviews, though: "I must say that she isn't well-known here in germany and the place where i live." Yeah, and everywhere else on the planet where people don't have encyclopedia knowledge of Star Trek: Voyager. Well, either Star Trek  or Reba. So pretty much everywhere.)

Rescuing myself from the parentheticals, this reminds me that Mesektet (aka White Room Girl) from Angel is the star of the new remake of Fame, the one that Stacey Shirk claims "is better" in her song "Ten Dollar Solo" from Commentary!: The Musical. (I learned this when both the old and new versions of Fame showed up in my Netflix suggestions.) And also apparently the Fame remake "was directed by Kevin Tancharoen, brother of [Commentary!] co-creator Maurissa Tancharoen." Who is in the new season of The Guild.

(My embarassment squick caused me to pause Guild 5x01 about two-thirds of the way through, so I haven't seen it yet. Am sad that the season probably won't have any Venom/Riley content in it, though. Can they get a spin-off? I really just want to watch Michelle Boyd and Teal Sherer play evil bisexual gamers now. Because, yeah, awesome.)

(And somehow I've landed myself back into the land of the parentheticals. Boo.)

Also I have the vague recollection that Mesektet turned into one of those ubiquitous Disney Channel starlets, and that her older sister dated Sam Winchester?

I have a whole collection of links and memes I wanted to post, but I'm on my way out the door, so I'll simply post what I'd consider the most important: [personal profile] yvi is considering running a Buffyverse RPG on Dreamwidth. That's something I've always wanted to participate in, so if you're interested, check out this post with a poll looking for input.

Title: Quartet for Two Voices
Fandom: Buffy the Vampire Slayer
Pairing: Rupert Giles/Kennedy, Dawn/Faith/Giles/Kennedy
Summary: It's strange and not strange at once. Not strange because Kennedy and Giles must have shared a bed dozens of times; strange because it's the first time Dawn or Faith or both isn't in it with them, and at the end of the day, he's a guy and she's, you know, really damn gay. (She's not straight they just love each other.)

Here's the poll, inspired by the "She's-not-straight-they-just-love-each-other" Giles/Kennedy fic I may or may not be working on (when I should be working on one of my five fest fics, but that's another story):

Poll #1893 Kennedy's Heterosexual Experience
Open to: Registered Users, detailed results viewable to: All, participants: 10

Prior to her introduction in "," had Kennedy ever had sex with a man?

View Answers

No; she's known she was gay since she was a little child, so why would she?
5 (50.0%)

Yes; given the cultural context, it's likely she's had some heterosexual sexual experience, even if she didn't particularly want it.
2 (20.0%)

It depends on your definition of "sex"; she's likely had some heterosexual sexual experience, but not intercourse.
3 (30.0%)

Ticky box!

Ticky box transcends labels and categories in theory, but in practice fits into radio buttons fairly easily.

Ticky box would totally go gay for Alyson Hannigan.

A/N: None of this text is new. It appeared first as part of my WIP Windows of My Soul, and then as individual ficlets. I think it makes the most sense in this form, however. (For reference--mostly my own--the ficlets can be found.
