Seeking podfic recs!  
1) I'm a procrastinator. Like, a really, really bad one. I know. I'm sorry.

2) I'm hosting a podfic listening party at wincon this year. (I know, that's just over a week away. I'm terrible. Shut up.) I have some podfics in mind that I know I want to include, but I don't want it to just be my taste/my fandoms/etc. If you have any recs, I'd love to hear them!

The listening party is only 50 minutes, so in the interest of hearing a diverse range of voices and fandoms, I'm looking primarily at podfics around 5 minutes long, give or take a couple minutes. All fandoms, pairings, and ratings are welcome. If you know of a short podfic that you think represents everything awesome about podfic in general, or a specific reader, or podfic in a particular fandom, please tell me about it in the comments! Self recs are totally welcome. You can also @reply or DM me on Twitter ([personal profile] nickelmountain)

Fandoms I don't listen in very much that I'd especially love some recs for include: Bandom (including AI), Glee, SPN RPF, Teen Wolf, and The Social Network. I also want to make sure to include new favorites and old standbys like the Avengers, Harry Potter, SGA, and (of course) Supernatural. I know where to look & have some ideas in mind for those, but again, diversity rules. 

When I first submitted the idea to wincon, I thought I'd be all organized and on top of things (stop laughing), and that I'd try to model it after the vid party - which meant including one or two premieres. Now there's obviously not nearly enough time to ask someone to record something brand new for next week, but, that said...if you are interested in premiering a short podfic at the podfic listening party, just let me know. 

Thanks for your help!

WINCON! I'm looking forward to seeing you again! :)

Here are some shorter links from my pinboard -- they all tend to be around the 10 min mark though, so they might be too long? Also, they're in "old" fandoms. *shrugs*
Sorry I don't have anything handy that really fits the bill at the moment.

The last thing Catherine needed right now was another over-eager, starry-eyed officer whose only concern was making Major before her next birthday.

These might be a little long, but I'll definitely check them out. (I love On The Use of Weapons!) There's certainly still room on the playlist. Thanks for the recs! I'm looking forward to seeing you again, too!

One more week!

Summary: Welcome to Common Grounds, a small coffeehouse in Peoria. And you are never going to believe the incredible specimen of sex on legs that just walked in.

Short and... well, not sweet, not exactly. Incredibly hot and hilarious, more like. No actual sex, but oh baby, the innuendo.... July gives us a couple of OFCs, some excellent coffee, and ROFL dialogue, which Twasadark performs to an absolute T. You don't really need to know anything about the show, either—but it helps if you've lusted after seen Jensen Ackles ;) Listening to Twasadark, uh, do this podfic *snicker* never fails to make me grin like an idiot (so I should probably not listen when I'm grocery shopping, yeah? And yet.). Just a lot of smutty fun, a definite mood-picker-upper.

Ooh, good choice. I love this podfic, and any podfic listening party playlist has to have twasadark on it somewhere. :D

Thanks for the rec!

You're welcome! I thought it might be a good fit for what you were looking for; so glad you think so too. Sounds like it will be an awesome party :D

Stargate: Atlantis | Rodney McKay/John Sheppard
Written by lavvyan
Read by winkingstar

(is this one too long? \o\) One of the many fics in which Rodney and John are [insert animal/food/object here]. :> The podfic reader has a sweet and melodic voice that is perfect for the atmosphere of this fic! (I'd totally list that one where Rodney and John are Girl Guide cookies, but I think it was well over 10 min)

length: 4:30 (edited version) 6:00 (director's cut)

I recommend the Director's Cut version for maximum lulz!

The SGA one might be a little long, but I'll take a listen and see if it fits in the playlist! The Old Spice one looks amazing. I haven't listened to it yet, but I'm already getting a good vibe from it.

Thanks for the recs! <3

Are you still in need of more podfics? :> I think I should be able to dig out some more SPN, SPN RPF, and/or Community podfics under 10 minutes!
nickelmountainnickelmountain on October 12th, 2012 06:43 pm (UTC)
Some SPN RPF and Community recs would be awesome!

http://www.audiofic.jinjurly.com/three-men-and-baby-minus-man under 5 minutes (and it's cute and funny)! I looked through the Community list on the archive, but I can't remember whether I've listened some of the other under-5-minutes short ones. \o\ I have a few under-5-minutes Community podfics here, if you're in need of more?

I looked through my SPN RPF folder, and I found these little gems by applegeuse:

And, applegeuse said I should mention this podfic -- it's a Macdonald Hall podfic (but no canon knowledge is needed), and it is an alternating-lines/voices collaboration + sound effects (it was my first time using sound effects, though, so it's not very polished! \o\)
