Podfic!

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).

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?

So I missed the six-year anniversary of my LJ on Sunday because I was busy at [livejournal.com profile] minimerlin on Sunday morning and early afternoon and then after I got home I crashed and made up some of the sleep I didn't get over the course of the weekend, what with not staying at the hotel and all. Guys, I slept for seventeen hours. I mean, some of the hours were heavier than others--I remember checking my alarm clock and/or computer at several different points over the night--but I did not leave my bed, did not turn on the lights, did not actually go on my computer, only rarely even opened my eyes.

In other words, [livejournal.com profile] minimerlin 2011 was the blast that [livejournal.com profile] minimerlin always is and I love you all that were there (or at previous years) and helped make it that way! I'm looking forward to 2012 already.

While I was too busy to celebrate my LJ anniversary on Sunday, apparently [personal profile] tinypinkmouse wasn't, because that's when she posted an audiofic of my fic Road to Emmaus (Firefly, Book, gen)--doubly appropriate since we're less than two weeks from Resurrection Sunday itself.

ROUND ONE: Summer Glau, Dawn Summers, and Joss Whedon )

ROUND TWO: Emma Frost, Buffy Summers, Hermione Granger )

Pick up to 15 OTPs.
Describe them in 15 words or less.
Have your flist guess the OTP.


1. Pedal photography with an exhibition at the Tate; better bring a book. [RPF -- Joss/Summer -- guessed by [livejournal.com profile] wisdomeagle]
2. Nativity's transposition, two forked roads, meets again with money and mathematics. Jealousy ebbs, equilibrium restored. [Veronica Mars -- Mac/Madison -- guessed by [livejournal.com profile] wisdomeagle]
3. Sentences flow together, as do selves in bodies stripped bare to times, possibilities. Hook shop?
4. With harboring metal, OT3. Innocence heals old wounds, restores faith, likes to frak. [Firefly -- Mal/Kaylee(/Serenity) -- guessed by [livejournal.com profile] wisdomeagle]
5. Complements, conqueror and nurturer: all the world, save one brother, falls at their feet.
6. Omnipotence and omniscience, innocence and experience, cape and chair: both can self-destruct quite well. [DC Comics -- Supergirl/Oracle -- guessed by [livejournal.com profile] wisdomeagle]
7. Out of poetry fashioned she him; he remade himself; forever is a long time. [Buffy the Vampire Slayer -- Spike/Drusilla -- guessed by [livejournal.com profile] wisdomeagle]
8. Man and metal, not brother or sister, but still 'cesty enough for me. [Sarah Connor Chronicles -- John/Cameron -- guessed by [livejournal.com profile] wisdomeagle]
9. She'd do anything for her, but she's not alone. Never partner, just quirky assistant, alas. [Veronica Mars -- Veronica/Mac -- guessed by [livejournal.com profile] wisdomeagle]
10. A madwoman, irresistable, and her caretaker. The future underestimates their love.
11. Former hostage, employed: trusted to watch, kill on betrayal (but doesn't, out of spite). [Astonishing X-Men -- Kitty/Emma -- guessed by [livejournal.com profile] wisdomeagle]
12. New canon (boo!) wrecks old OTP, gives new one. No need for ursine ingestion, though.
13. Cooler than red-haired true love, but just a fling--'til David's star arrives in school?
14. Age too young for chaos, girl too young to dance; absence breeds madness.
15. School visit leads to playing hooky, and a return to brother's bed, broken. [Firefly -- Simon/River -- guessed by [livejournal.com profile] wisdomeagle]

I think this is sufficiently different from previous years' to justify posting: 12 Days Graphic )

Um, that last one (Cameron in a Firefly, for those who haven't clicked on the cut) . . . yum. Someone needs to write Cameron on Serenity. Especially if there could be River/Cameron femslash. Guh.

While I'm sort of on the subject, let me point people to [livejournal.com profile] ithiliana's Twelve Days of Fandom.

Summer Glau's interview on the John DeBella show



Scroll down to the bottom. Summer is adorable, as always, talk of robot sex is had, John starts out with the Firefly fanboy thing, it's about six minutes long.

(And Ari, John refers to "Summer Tam" at one point too, so don't feel bad.)

What are my New Years resolutions?  Besides hitting the treadmill, which is up there with eating live squid, I'm going to make an effort to infect my brain with positivism.  There is no point in obsessing about the things you can't change, and there's no such thing you can't do.  I've had a really positive year and I'm grateful for another one on its way.
