Rec: [Women’s Hockey RPF] Going Back to Yesterday
Summary: Sometimes, it feels like it’s all happening to someone else, that it’s someone else’s hands on her stick, that it’s someone else scoring her goals. It’s hard to believe she’s really here, living on her own, making a living playing hockey.

Sometimes, it feels like someone else’s face in the mirror.

Reccer Notes: This is so creepy and atmospheric, and a really amazing use of sound effects. All the voices are so good too!

Rec: [Transformers] Champion, read by HaHeePrime
Summary: Rumble sets Megatron's old poetry to a thumpin' beat. He claims what happens afterwards is not his fault...

Rec Snippet: HaHeePrime did a did a stellar job with an already stellar fanfic, so the result is absolutly great, and very engaging. I love HaHeePrime's voice, and her Rumble's narration voice is in turn funny, and blasé, and so distinctive! And the way it is contrasted with the voice acting for Megatron and Starscream is great, as well as the way the music was used... great work. <3

Rec: [Star Wars] Water, Water Everywhere (The Albatross Remix) by reenajenkins
Summary: When you grow up in a desert, you learn not to take water for granted.

Rec Snippet: Reccer Notes: Reenajenkins’ matter of fact delivery suits this narration-heavy character study perfectly. Her usual sparse, conversational style unexpectedly pulls out the physicality of movement in this, all the longing, the regret, and fear that this story sees Luke experience. The emotional pitch of the storytelling is just right to pull me in, and the hook at the end always brings me to tears.

Rec: [Red vs Blue] Trust Fall by GodofLaundryBaskets
Summary: This entire rescue mission's been nothing but disaster; now all that's left is a last-ditch assault on the Fed base in the Capital City. Casualties could be high. Morale is low. But Lieutenant Smith has absolute faith in his captain's ability to lead them through the worst of it. After all, Captain Caboose is the wisest and most compassionate leader he's ever known.

Reccer Notes: So maybe this was made as a gift for me for #ITPE but that doesn't mean I'm being biased at all when I say this is a DELIGHT to listen to. Caboose is my One True Love and GoLB gets his voice so perfectly. The story itself is such a fun romp...until shit gets real. GoLB does a fantastic job conveying both the levity and the stakes in the story with their performance.

Rec: Star Trek - *earth intensifies* a tumblr compliation, by forzandopod
Summary: A collection of meta and tumblr musings on the headcanon that all other species in the galaxy think earthlings are impulsive weirdos with a penchant for destruction and weird talent for techno-space-magic BUT IN PODFIC FORM.

Reccer Notes: Yes, that tumblr thread! Forzandopod's enthusiasm and delight while reading this is palpable, and the effort they have gone to in curating and re-ordering all the best additions to it make such a difference. This is clearly a labour of love, and I appreciate it so much! Every time I listen, I find myself grinning or laughing aloud, and picking up one more detail of meta that I'd missed the last time I listened. Forzandopod reads with an effortlessly conversational tone that is true to the informal source text, and keeps both the humour and wonder of it.

Rec: [FMA] Belief and Memory, read by Rhea314
Summary: Alicia liked to pretend she had an Invisible Daddy.

Reccer Notes: I probably shouldn’t have listened to this while driving because it made me Emotional. Yes, the capital letter is necessary.
If you want to have a good cry over Elicia Hughes and how much she loves her dad, listen to this podfic and let Rhea put pressure on your tear ducts. You probably won’t regret it. Probably. Just make sure you’re not driving (like I was, foolishly) or operating heavy machinery or anything like that.

Rec: Aromantic Fairy Tales (fairy tales read by KeeperofSeeds )
Summary: Short retelling of classic fairy tales if the princess was aromantic.

Rec: Okay, this podfic holds a special place in my heart, and I'm not counting it as a self rec because OMG KeeperofSeeds, How Did You Even?!?!?
I wrote this small collection intending it to be a mixed bag of minimalist stories. Glimpses, into the changes because we all know the stories. KeeperofSeeds took it and gave it, a subtlety weight that had me holding my breath for each new line.

Rec: Trickster Steals the Moon [star wars read by isweedan ]
Summary: This is the story of how Depur stole the moon from the sky, and how Ekkreth the Trickster stole it back thrice over.

(But that's no moon...)

Rec Snippet: That isn't the only case either, Isweedan is a master of subtle shifts in tone. The difference between Vader, and Ekkreth, and the toneless inflection she uses for KD-7 that definitely lets the sarcasm come through even though the whole point is that KD doesn't have a full vocal range.

Rec: The Hero's Journey; or: What Jasper Sitwell Did Last Summer (Avengers / Welcome to Night Vale)
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.

Rec Snippet: Now consider all that, with a full cast of amazing readers. Not only was everyone in character but the editing was flawless. There's one point where I panicked because the audio started to skip, except it turned out that that was Part Of Night Vale, and totally intentional.

Rec: Stranger Things: The Readers by AnUnexpected Party
Summary: Max and Eleven find some common ground.

Reccer Notes: This is my first rec from this year's Awesome Ladies. You should definitely check out the entire anthology, but I'm singling out this small-fandom gem in particular. This is such a cosy story about friendship, and AnUnexpectedParty reads it brilliantly, with perfect pacing and a great feel for the characters.

Rec: Star Wars: Mission Report: Operation Sidestream by bessyboo
Summary: Agents arrived on schedule and successfully took up residence at the resort. On the first day of the mission, the Happy Blasters made contact and negotiations began. On the third day all three agents in addition to the Happy Blasters were forcibly escorted from the premises of the resort. Mission was a nominal success.

Rec Snippet: The story switches between the different characters and [ profile] bessyboo has incredible command over the different perspectives! Leia is commanding and competent, Han is confident and impulsive, and Luke is still kind of innocent (no matter what he says) - each voice is perfectly expressed. Every character beat is infused with personality: there is a part where Leia says 'Agent Solo' with such derision, where [personal profile] bessyboo elongates the 'Agent' so that I can practically hear the air quotes around the word. An A+ enjoyable podfic.

Rec: Guardians of the Galaxy: On Picking Up Strays by skyunicorn
Summary: Written for a prompt on guardian-kink. The Ravagers didn't really want to keep the kid, but all their attempts to get rid of him failed.

Reccer Notes: While short, this is one of my favorite go-to podfics. Like, ‘guaranteed to download to every new phone’ and saved in the cloud for rough work days. While I don’t often read poetry, I loved [ profile] Ihni's piece. [ profile] skyunicorn's performance reminds me that poetry, for the most part, is meant to be heard, and their performance underscores this.

Rec: 2001: A Space Odyssey: Turing Test, read by Luzula
Summary: In space nobody can hear you.

Rec Snippet: There is a cold detachment to this story and Luzula does an excellent job of conveying that dispassion in the read. This is all science, psychology, and reason - until it's not. There is a point in the reading when the pieces start to fit together and this all becomes a slow rolling horror story (if you're a human) / or the inevitable, what really should have happened, conclusion to the original movie.

Rec: [Sailor Moon] down (and dirty), read by blackglass
Summary: "Ami knew anatomy, and understood biology."

Reccer Notes: It's a short little podfic but it draws you in completely.

It switches between reality and dream a few times and every time, blackglass manages to convey the switch just by a change in their voice. The dreams are breathier, more urgent, while reality is mostly matter of fact - until Ami begins to think about the dreams and how they made her feel.

The changes in voice are subtle, but they work, and before you know it you've been sucked into it and want more of it.

rec: [Check Please!] 100px to the right, read by Hananobira
Summary: Bitty comes out to Johnson in the Haus kitchen after baking four pies in a row. Bitty bakes when he’s nervous, but he also bakes when he’s happy, when he’s tired, when he’s irritated, and when it’s Tuesday, so it’s hard to draw conclusions. Unless you peeked ahead to the last panel first to check for cliffhangers, but Johnson would never do that.

Rec: Reccer Notes: I swear I didn’t mean to turn this into a Hananobira appreciation month, but I don’t regret that this is what it’s becoming xD Hananobira is awesome and y’all should listen to their works because I’m in love with their performances.

The story is cute. It’s an outsider POV kind of thing, and also a bit of a character study for a character that’s… interesting. Johnson is the metaphysical goalie in the Check Please verse, which means he’s aware that he’s a comic character.

Rec: Mad Max Fury Road: Aftermath by annapods
Summary: It's one thing to stand and scream "We are not things!" It is something different to sit down in the quiet that follows and find what that means.

Rec snippet: I adore annapods' voice, the timbre and quality of it, which I find smooth and easy to listen to. Their measured tone and almost gentle delivery here suits the healing and recovery themes of this text so, so well. I almost feel like annapods is taking every difficult step with each character who is finding her way, and rooting for them all as they establish new ways to do things, out of a broken city and a broken society.

Rec: [Cabin Pressure] Rules for Martin, read by Phoneboxangels
Summary: The students Martin lives with have a list of rules for caring for the pilot in the attic.

Reccer Notes: There’s not that much Cabin Pressure podfic out there, but this is a little gem. This is lovingly read. The affection for Martin (either from the narrator or the students) really comes through in the podfic, and I’ll definitely be listening to this over and over again. It’s just so sweet, and an interesting character study for Martin.

Rec: Harry Potter: Loss in the Night by marsmaywander
Summary: Set at the end of book 5, Hermione finds out from Lupin that Sirius has died. Her grief hits her hard. The conversation about everything that happened in the Department of Mysteries happens while she is in the hospital wing, still recovering from the effects of the Death Eater's purple flame. A few days later, she talks to McGonagall about the loss of Sirius.

Rec Snippet: This solemn, steadily paced podfic of Hermione processing her grief is rich with character study, and relationship study. Marsmaywander's performance is beautifully suited to the story, the introspective and sometimes sorrowful narration contrasting with the brief flashes of dialogue, which are brilliantly acted and full of character.

podfic_love | Star Wars: TFA - Skywalker's Garden Center and Landscaping by isweedan
Han Solo blows by, moving fast.

"Don't drink the hose water, kid, it's got fertilizer in it."

Finn looks up, affronted. "Now you tell me?"

Rec Snippet: The humour, compassion, and warmth that isweedan puts into all their reading is so very effective in this story, being as it is about healing, and about good things growing out of bad. Even with my limited knowledge of some of these characters at the start of this AU, I found myself completely engrossed in their stories, and their disparate lives, by the text and with isweedan's usual skill. There's a tenderness to some of the dialogue beyond even what I've heard from them before, which really tugged at my heart-strings.

Rec: Monsters Inc (2001): A Monster Returns by RsCreighton
Summary: The scariest experience of Brian Hobson's life was the day his daughter went missing. The second-scariest was a strange incident at a summer camp eleven years before she was born.

Rec Snippet: RsCreighton's voice and performance brought exactly the right tone to this whole really creative concept that Radondoran came up with. I listened to it again this past week and it's certainly the kind of podfic I never would've expected to receive but was so delighted by. These movies are some of my favorites of all time. And this story evokes so many "What ifs" about this world the movies created. It's ingenious and was well worth a second listen.
