[Clicky clicky to see this post with the cuts hiding things!]

My policy on how I do my recs (including for things like warnings and spoilers) can be found at [my policy post about my recs], for those interested.

I won the services of two podficcers, [livejournal.com profile] lunchy_munchy and [personal profile] via_ostiense, during the first round of the [livejournal.com profile] help_japan auction. And once the podfics started arriving in my inbox, I though, 'Oh, hey, wouldn't it be cool if I wrote up recs for these as they came in and as I listened to them?' The answer to that is, 'Obviously, yes!' But that raises the question: 'Did I do that?', to which the answer is obviously 'hahhahahaa, you must be new here if you think there was a snowball's chance of me following through on that.' But I'm going to count it as a partial victory, because there are still stories to be podficced, so I'm at least a little bit on top of things. Ish. Sorta? Eh, close enough!

As I starting thinking on this rec set, I noticed that there were other fanworks which just kept creeping in round the edges. And in fine Fishly fashion, I decided to roll with that. So what we have here is each podfic recorded for me paired with another fanwork(s) in some manner which I swear makes sense to me! :D I've used horizontal rules to separate each set visually because I like imposing order.

'Dear Kunsel' and 3 other sets )

'Flatmate Wanted' and 3 other sets )

'The Care and Feeding of Tiny Humans (and slightly larger Time Lords)' and 1 other set )

'World Domination Is Harder Than It Looks' and 1 other set )

'Redemption Song' and 'You're Gonna Make it After All' as well as 3 other sets )

As usual, if I've got inaccuracies, broken links, or missing info (especially podfics, DVD commentaries, and sequels/prequels), please let me know.

Once upon a time, a long time ago, [livejournal.com profile] vibrantharmony bought my rec set services for [livejournal.com profile] help_haiti. I was given the following prompt:
begin quote Could I get a multifandom rec list? I'm into Merlin, Psych, and SGA (and Smallville and Doctor Who, from your minor list), so any combination from those fandoms would be awesome. As for a prompt, I love funny fics, not crackfic necessarily but more just amusing things or unusual situations. end quote

And here, only an age later, is that rec set. I have at least a few recs in all of the listed fandoms and I threw in some crossovers for good measure. This is mostly fic with the occasional podfic. I am very very sorry that this has taken this long to be finished! I hope you find some new friends in this batch! Thank you for your donation!

ETA: [View this entry with the cuts intact (ie: hiding things)]

Reposting my recs from [livejournal.com profile] spngenlove week 14.

Theme: Free For All
[First day of posting] and [the tag].

This month the theme at the comm is H/C with focus on various characters. Which isn't quite my cuppa. So I think I'm going to be focusing on reccing other fandoms this month. Current in-progress rec list: rare fandoms! After that, either Star Trek Reboot (which everyone and their uncle has already recced), or Psych (with an emphasis on Shawn/Gus), or Sentient!Atlantis (because I've missed SGA fic!), Wincest-I-can-read (okay, it's SPN but it's not gen), or Harry Potter, or something else that strikes my fancy. Feel free to tell me which you'd prefer :)

9 fics (incl. 1 podfic), 3 crossovers with: Star Trek Reboot, Psych, Doctor Who )

I've been watching these vids repeatedly for much of this week. It's been one of those weeks where these stupid little things keep happening and adding up and you feel redicolous by feeling put out by the whole thing, but you just really want to tear out your hair and yell a lot. So these have been comfort-vids for me right now. I don't know why, exactly, but I figure, any vid I can stand to watch somewhere between twenty-five and fifty times in a five day period I may as well rec. You needn't wait for a bad day to watch them though! I do love them even when I'm not in a mood :)

Vid: [Handlebars]
Vidder: Seah and Margie [livejournal.com profile] flummery
Song & Artist: Flobots
Fandom, Etc.: Doctor Who (Tenth Doctor, specifically), 3:27
Format: AVI, no lyrics, no captioning
Summary: I'm the Doctor. Look me up.
My Notes: This is how I see the Doctor-- yes, he's wonderful and fun but also ever so very powerful and alien. He may consider the Earth (one of) his pet planet(s) but that doesn't mean that he's not scary too.

Vid: [Four Years]
Vidder: Fabella [livejournal.com profile] wistful_fever
Song & Artist: "Life Less Ordinary" by Carbon Leaf
Fandom, Etc.: SGA, 3:44
Format: xvid avi, no captioning, no lyrics given
Summary: Four years of John loving Rodney. Rodney is a) oblivious, b) deliberately ignorant, or c) not as smart as he likes to think he is. Mckay/Sheppard. John POV.
My Notes: Oh, John and Rodney love each other so much! And then they do Atlantis things!

Vid: [The Temptation of John Sheppard]
Vidder: [livejournal.com profile] isagel
Song & Artist: "The Temptation of Adam" by Josh Ritter
Fandom, Etc.: SGA, John/Rodney, 3:46
Format: DivX AVI, DivX, streaming at BAM Video Vault, not captioned, lyrics provided at post
Summary: I never had to learn to love you like I learned to love the bomb.
My Notes: From inside John's head, we look at Rodney. Oh, I love this vid simply amazing amounts.

Vid: [Apple Candy]
Vidder: [livejournal.com profile] talitha78
Song & Artist: Apple Candy by Ben Lee
Fandom, Etc.: Star Trek Reboot, Kirk/Uhura/Spock
Format: WMV, AVI (XVid), YouTube, not captioned and no lyrics given
Summary: James T. Kirk believes in having it all.
My Notes: Everyone and their pet cat has already recced this, it really is that awesome. I love the cutting and the pacing and how well the clips are suited to telling a story along with the song. I love the longing that Kirk feels and from the looks of Uhura and Spock I'm convinced that they all end up together. (For extra fun, I quite enjoy watching this vid and thinking about where those shots were in the movie-- it gives me a sense of how one can clip things to say things other than what precisely was shown on the screen.)

Vid: [Open Secrets of the Pegasus Galaxy]
Vidder: [livejournal.com profile] yevgenie
Song & Artist: Everybody Knows -- Leonard Cohen
Summary: That's how it goes, everybody knows.
Fandom, Etc.: SGA, cast (gen), seasons 1-4, rated PG, 4:04
Format things: mp3 and mov, not captioned but lyrics included in post
My Notes: This is one of those vids I had to watch a bunch before I felt that I was understanding what the vidder was trying to do. She says "This is my love letter to Stargate Atlantis. It is also a letter about how Stargate: Atlantis drives me fucking crazy." I like it because it reminds me that the situation in Pegasus is much more complicated than the show often portrayed it and that things are not always simple and easy and such in a war zone.

I have no real idea what I'm doing with formatting these vid recs, so if you have suggestions, please let me know.

As always, if you spot any inaccuracies/dead links/missing info/additional transformative works (e.g., podfics, commentaries), please let me know.

Short podfics are easy to overlook but often can be great. If you line up several of them, they're an excellent way to pass a short trip without worrying that you'll only be half-way through by the time you arrive. But I think listeners are sometimes wary of downloading the very short podfics, because the effort to length ratio is too large. So! Here's some great short podfics!

5 podfics, all under ten minutes, in SGA, Bones, Doctor Who, Discworld, Torchwood, Harry Potter, and Supernatural (yay for cross-overs!) )
