Dear ITPE-er!

HI!!! I'm so excited that you're participating in ITPE!

 

Do tell! What are your #ITPE feelings?

  1. aI genuinely love podfic. It’s a medium and community that works really well for me on a number of levels.

    1. Corollary: you are making podfic within some of my favorite fandoms, with the intent of making me happy. I’ll love it, I promise.

  2. I really love this challenge, and would like other people to enjoy it as well. Especially you!

    1. Corollary: it’s set during a very busy time of year. This is meant to be a low-stress challenge. Please don’t get too worked up on my account. I’ll love it, I promise.

  3. I’m generally pretty easy to please, and try to be clear about where those limits are. They’re there, but they’re usually fairly easily avoided.

    1. Corollary: unless you’re actually deliberately trying to mess with me, I’ll love it, I promise.

    2. Corollary: guidance is helpful.

      1. Secondary corollary: with the exception of the squicks and triggers, these are guidelines, nor rules. Feel free to play fast and loose with them if you think the situation demands it :D

 

Okay, so what are your general fannish, genre and canon feelings?

At the moment, my rule of thumb is that my tolerance for angst and violence in fandom goes as deep as the canon does. So for Spartacus, anything up to and included truly ridiculous amounts of gore is gonna be fine, but in White Collar, anything worse than, say, moderate and non-fatal mayhem won’t be great; similarly, body horror in Rivers of London would be fine, but not in Leverage. Likewise, Fast and the Furious isn’t particularly angsty, so I’m not a great fan of Brian being emo, but Miles Vorkosigan is a fabulously angsty muffin, so I’m onboard with him and his crew wallowing in their feelings.

 

On the other hand, my tolerance for fluff exceeds cavity-inducing levels with no regard for canon. Should you decide that what I need in my life is Dom and Mia Toretto sibling-bonding over fluffy bunnies, I encourage you to embrace that thought thoroughly.

             Note the first: though some of these canons (Spartacus, Vorkosigan, Young Wizards) feature major character death, I’d argue very strongly that all of them are hopeful/redemptory. So while major character death (and non-canonical rape and excessive violence) isn’t (aren’t) a deal breaker, a non-happy ending kinda is.

Story-wise, stories set in canon are fine. AUs, be they human, animal, or sentient dinnerware, are fine by me. Fusions and so on are fine, but please don’t fuse with a canon that you don’t know I’m familiar with and like (e.g. No Hannibal fusions. Ask analise010 or reenajenkins if you need help on this one.) I adore secondary characters and learning more about them and their background and their story and how they fit into and feel about the main story. I adore day-in-the-life and humor and geekiness and happy flailing.

Format wise, I’m very easy to please. If you find a fic you think I’d like, go for it. If you find a chatlog, headcanon, interview, poem, squee, meta, or whatever, that you think I’ll like, go for it.

 

I need more detail: what are your fandom- and pairing- specific feelings?

MCU

I'm here for the found family feels. Actually, I'm in a lot of places for found family feels, but this fandom is so great for that! movies only please. I adore everyone in this boyband. I am happy to ship everyone in this boyband, including all the poly. Have at it.

Sidenote: things that I am not currently interested in that feature heavily in some parts of fandom include Tony’s Mommy&Daddy Issues, Bruce’s (and Tony’s) feelings of inadequacy, Pepper-bashing

Leverage

I’m mostly here for the OT3 and gen. I love Sophie, but Nate and his issues annoy me.

White Collar

ditto on the OT3. As far as I'm concerned the canon here ends sometime around S3: Diana is back (but Lauren can stay!), Sara is excellent, El and Peter are rock-solid, and there are no clouds on the horizon. Fandom seems to agree with me on many of these, so I shouldn’t think you’ll have much trouble, should you decide to go in this direction. This is a great fandom for h/c, should you decide to go that way, though please give me my happy ending J

Vorkosigan

I have many many feelings about everyone: Miles, Cordelia, Aral, Ekaterin, Gregor, Simon, Elena, Kareen, Alys, Ivan, Taura, Tej, Laisa, Ethan, Bothari, Elli, Dono, Jole… Everyone. They are my darlings. All of them should have everything they deserve, with everything that entails.

Mark’s Black Gang are a bit tricky for me, so that really the one element I’d rather you steered clear of. Several excellent fics in this fandom feature historical Barrayaran OFCs and I encourage you not to discount them.

Rivers of London

I do love this fandom, but the things I love in it are complicated. For the sake of ease, I'll say that I'd prefer nothing higher than a PG-13 rating for Peter/Thomas, though shippy stuff is fine. Beverly and her extended family are great.s Abigail is great. Lesley is great. Molly is great.

Fast and the Furious

All the found family forever and ever and ever and ever and ever. Dom/Brian is excellent, Mia/Brian is excellent, poly is fine and excellent, though I’d rather it was non-incestuous, please. This is another good fandom for h/c.

Avatar: the last Airbender, Legend of Korra

My darlings! I adore these kiddos. Have at it.

Note: I’d rather not have sexy shenanigans about underaged characters. Once Korra and Asami, for instance, are both 18, have at it.

Spartacus

LADIES. also agron/nasir. but mostly ladies. ladies ladies ladies.

Almost Human

Dorian and Kennex are lovely and deserve all the good things. Including each other. But also cuddles. I just want them to be happy.

Young Wizards

Tiny fandom of my heartface. I love them so much. So much. So so so much. All of them. Everyone. In every time and place.

Xena

XENA/GABRIELLE 4EVA. That is all. (gen is also good :D)

 

I do need to know your squicks and triggers…

no-escape situations (either real or metaphorical – eg backed into a corner, despair, suicidal ideation, variations on "you have nowhere (else) to go", "no one will believe you")

dub- or non-con

misunderstandings/miscommunication as a plot device

mental health care professionals who suck at their jobs

chase scenes (Fast and the Furious gets an exception, but no one else does)

more-than-canonical gore (see first paragraph under “general feelings”)

major character death that isn’t happy/redemptory (see note under first paragraph of “general feelings”)


 

What if I have questions that you didn’t answer here?

Then you can ask on this post anonymously, or ask analise010 or reenajenkins, who have a pretty good handle on my likes and dislikes :D

Have fun <3

 

-Jess

Dear podficcer!

HI! I'm so excited to hear what you decide to make me! Podfic is one of my favorite forms of fanwork, and podfic fandom is my favorite fandom, and my favorite thing about fandom is interacting with people who love the things that I love. Participating in ITPE is a two-fer: it's a fanwork-form we both love, and we were matched for the fandoms we both love!
The corollary to this, btw, is that, more than anything, I want you to have fun during ITPE. Don't stress out about it. I'll love whatever you make, I promise!


That having been said, if you want some guidance, here are some lists:

A non-exhaustive list of fandoms I adore (in no particular order):
Young Wizards
Jupiter Ascending
Leverage
Vorkosigan Saga
Mad Max: Fury Road
Due South
Rivers of London
Teen Wolf (focus on the ladies please!)
Marvel Cinematic Universe (read: Avengers, Thor, Iron Man, Captain America, Peggy Carter, Agents of SHIELD)
Avatar: the Last Airbender, Avatar: the Legend of Korra
Welcome to Nightvale
Fast and the Furious
Almost Human

fic elements I adore
focus on minor characters
focus on women
focus on characters of color
focus on genderqueer characters
happy endings! (of any degree of innuendo :D)
humor
geekiness
warm-fuzzies
funky formats (epistolary, texts, tweets, programming language...)
AUs
crossovers
fusions
a-day-in-the-life
found families
polyamory
MANYMANY OTHER THINGS (seriously, I'm pretty easy to please)


SQUICKS/TRIGGERS

chase scenes
no-escape situations (either real or metaphorical – eg backed into a corner, despair, suicidal ideation, variations on "you have nowhere (else) to go", "no one will believe you")
character death (either minor or major)
dub- or non-con
misunderstandings/miscommunication as a plot device
mental health care professionals who suck at their jobs (e.g.: Hannibal, Once Upon a Time, Alphas, etc)
more-than-canonical gore (applies per canon, so what's ok in teen wolf is not in leverage)

Please don't assume that a listed squick is not hard-and-fast because I've podficced something that kinda fits that description. I sometimes find it cathartic to podfic something myself that would give me serious problems otherwise.


If you have any questions, you can ask analise010 or reenajenkins, who have a pretty good handle on my likes and dislikes :D

ITPE 2013

Dear podficcer!

First, know that one of my favorite things about fandom in general, and podfic specifically, is knowing that I'm interacting with people who love the things I love. The corollary to this is that, more than anything, I want you to love what you're podficcing, especially if it's a gift. This is actually pretty selfish of me: it's considerably less fun for me if you don't like what you're doing. The one exception to this is my squick list, which is pretty hard and fast for podfic, I'm sorry to say D:

What this means, in practical purposes, is that this letter is intended as a starting point if you're stuck or need ideas. I don't really have OTP preferences for the fandoms listed here.

That having been said, if you're looking for more guidance, here's some lists:

A non-exhaustive list of fandoms I adore (in no particular order)
Due South
Avengers (and Thor and Iron Man and Captain America and Hulk and all the little bits and pieces)
Warehouse 13
Good Omens
White Collar

fic elements I adore
MINOR CHARACTERS (DUM-E/Dummy, Dief, Darcy Lewis, Frigga, Diana Barrigan, Mozzie, Maria Hill, the Them, the list goes on and on...)
happy endings! (of any degree of innuendo :D)
humor
geekiness
warm-fuzzies
funky formats (epistolary, texts, tweets, programming language...)
AUs
found families
MANYMANY OTHER THINGS (seriously, I'm pretty easy to please)

SQUICKS
no-escape situations (either real or metaphorical – eg chases, despair, suicidal ideation, variations on "you have nowhere (else) to go", "no one will believe you")
character death (either minor or major)
dub- or non-con
misunderstandings/miscommunication as a plot device
mental health care professionals who suck at their jobs (e.g.: Hannibal, Once Upon a Time, Alphas, etc)

Please don't assume that because I've podficced something that kinda fits something I've listed as a squick, that it's not hard and fast. I sometimes find it cathartic to podfic something myself that would give me serious problems otherwise, and the list of things I will listen to it quite a bit shorter than the list of things I will record.


If you have any questions, pleasepleaseplease ask the mods and they'll pass on the question. I don't think you'll have trouble finding something, but if you have any questions at all, pleasepleaseplease ask :D I hate having to talk about squicks near the end, because it makes this feel like it ends on a down note, which is not at all what I want! ITPE is fun! I'm INCREDIBLY excited about participating, and I hope you are too :D

First, know that:



whatever you do, I will love it to itty bitty pieces, because you will have made podfic, and you will have made podfic for me, and, most importantly, ~YOU WILL HAVE MADE PODFIC AND I LOVE PODFIC LIKE BURNING~ :D

That having been said, if you're looking for more guidance, here's some lists:

A non-exhaustive list of fandoms I like adore (in no particular order)
Due South
Xena
Avengers
Teen Wolf
Vorkosigan Saga
the Sentinel
Classic Who
the Man from UNCLE
Warehouse 13
Iron Man
Good Omens
Young Wizards
Thor
White Collar


fic elements I adore
happy endings! (of any degree of innuendo :D)
crossovers
humor
geekiness
BAMF!anyone
warm-fuzzies
novel formats (epistolary, texts, tweets, programming language...)
competence (read – I don't mind incompetence, but I do have a wide compentence-kink ;P)
AUs
three-somes/more-somes
found families
MANYMANY OTHER THINGS (seriously, I'm pretty easy to please)

elements I would really prefer not to have
no-escape situations (either real or metaphorical – eg chases, despair, suicidal ideation, variations on "you have nowhere (else) to go", "no one will believe you")
more-than-canonical gore
character death (either minor or major)
dub- or non-con
power differentials in sexual situations that haven't been clearly discussed ahead-of-time and on-screen (ie not before the fic/podfic starts!)
misunderstandings/miscommunication as a plot device

If you have any questions, pleasepleaseplease ask the mods and they'll pass on the question. Pleasepleaseplease. Know that I would rather the surprise be spoiled and you ask questions, than not ask, have the surprise, and not be able to love it as it deserves. Not that I think you'll have trouble finding something, but if you have any questions at all, pleasepleaseplease ask :D


finally: you are Stiles. I am Scott. Everything is podfic and nothing hurts <3
