5/29/11 01:25 am - HIGHLY OVERDUE: Charity Podfic #1 of 3
Okay, technically, it's actually charity podfic number TWO of three, but the first one's still in editing, so this one is getting released first. It's for zvi for con_or_bust.
STORYTIME! Once upon a time, Bessy signed up for three fandom charity auctions all in a row, and promised lots of good people podfics, and then her life got crazy and months went by and she still hadn't finished them. And then life got MORE crazy and she went "/o\ I'M SORRY, I'LL GET TO THEM I SWEAR", and finally got one finished and now she is posting it.
And that's the WORST STORYTIME EVAR but yeah, I apparently suck at timely podfic delivery.
BUT I FINALLY GOT ONE DONE, SO HERE IT IS! zvi, thank you for your patience!
Without further ado...
Get Next to You

When zvi first won my auction offer, she gave me a list of several fics in different fandoms, and this was at the top of her list. Now, Fastlane was not actually on my "OFFICIAL LIST OF FANDOMS", but it had been somewhere in the middle of my vague "TO WATCH" list for quite a while (IDK, I remember hearing that it had Tiffani Thiessen in another OT3-ish group, and there was some fun slashyness), and I told her that if she was willing to wait for me to watch the show, I'd do this fic.
...well, she has DEFINITELY been very patient about waiting! XD This fic really is great--it was definitely a bit outside my normal podficcing comfort zone, and it's always fun to push yourself. I love the pacing in this; it definitely feels very much like an episode of the show. Except, you know, moar boysex. Although I feel it should be mentioned, that's not an easy feat, given the canon, to do that and keep them in character. There are slashy vibes, yes, but you also get the sense that there's also a lot more homophobia to get past with these characters than if you were writing for, say, White Collar, or Torchwood (hah. HAH.) And zvi doesn't just handwave that--she deals with it very deftly.
Also, zvi isn't generally a fan of music in podfics, so ya'll get a non-music version of this one, too. For the music version, the opening/closing is two different Empires songs.
zvi, I hope you like it and I did your fic justice. Thank you for being so amazingly patient. <3
