So I reached my 100th podfic and I thought it would be a good idea to do some sort of retrospective.

There's this meme on deviantArt where you take one of your earlier drawings and draw it again and I thought it looked kind of interesting, so I stole it adapted it to podfic as best I could (the original drawing meme is here). I took my first podfic and repodded it, partly because I was curious, partly because I knew I could do better and I didn't feel like just editing the old one.

There was another version I did in November 2013, but that I gave up on because of technical issues. However it's still included in the audio sample.




This is how the three versions look like in order:


It's weird seeing the difference between the three waveforms.
First of all, you can see how my pacing has changed - the new version is ~5min longer than the first. I also seem to have settled on a much lower volume (not sure if that's a good thing though). They're also recorded with different microphones (the first one on the ednet desktop mic that served me well for over a year for podfic and another three before that; the second on a poorly treated AKG D44S and the final one on the Samsun Go Mic I got last Christmas)

And for my 100th podfic (I'm counting the micro-podfics individually, but not their translations, even if they're all posted together), I give you a repod of my very first podfic. I've fiddled with it in the past and I did record it once more back in November, but I'm only posting this version (from March).

This podfic went though a few versions over the years. I recorded the first one back in June 2012, my very first podfic. I hated the sound of my own voice back then and barely got though the editing process - there was a lot of noise, because I was using an older version of Audacity and it was hard to get the right amount of noise reduction, and I had a couple of repeat lines left in, because I didn't have the patience to listen to myself all the way though after I thought I was done editing. I then went back to it and edited it in November of that year, after Lunchee gave it a listen and pointed out what was wrong - that's the version that's still up in the original post. Then, in November 2013 I re-recorded it to track my progress, but I never posted it - I had switched to a better mic, but I didn't have a pop-filter yet and I thought it was too distracting. This version I recorded this March with another mic, as my 100th podfic.

The current version is 5 minutes longer than the first - my reading pace has slowed down considerably since then. I've also started enjoying editing a lot more than than I expected. I made a post here with all the differences, including screencaps of the waveforms and samples from all three versions.

I'm really bad at talking about stuff I like, especially when I'm trying to introduce it to people who aren't already familiar with it. I tend to ramble and get lost in details that seem insignificant. Since the best map of the land is the land itself and the best way to describe a story is to tell it, bare with me as I read to you one of my favorite fan fics - a tale about an unusual curse and two people (one human and one youkai) who have to weather the centuries by each-other's side first as reluctant allies, eventually as friends (and more than that). Be patient with the protagonists, it takes decades for their friendship to build and even more for them to realize that's what it is. We'll have five centuries to be frustrated over how slow they are to realize what's in front of their noses.

My first podfic, almost six months ago, was of one of Resmiranda's fanfics. It was done on a whim, at far to early in the morning for me to think better of it and after years of hesitation because I was unsure of my reading voice, my accent and my editing skills. It had a lot of background noise, I accidentally left a line in there twice and after I posted it and it finally sank in that I had, I was so, so nervous about it. But the author liked it and I eventually went back to it and edited it again and made it presentable and I'm actually kind of proud of it.

Six months and 15 podfics later and 2012 is over (well, there's still about 12 hours left over here). I thought the best way to end this year was with another of Resmiranda's fics.

It was the second day of Christmas at my grandparent's house and I was suffering from insomnia... so I locked myself in the bathroom and prayed no one could hear me read this (it worked so well, that grandpa nearly walked in on me during the sort of sex scene :"> )

Happy New Year, everyone!

This is one of my all time favorite stories and it left such a mark on me that I think it might have slipped into my subconscious and possibly affected one of my own stories. I hadn't read it in a while until one morning when I was supposed to be working on a project for Uni and ended up re-reading this and taking out my mic to record it.

Nov 1st 2012 edit - I finally remembered to update Audacity (the version I had been using was 3 years old) so I went back and finally got rid of the background noise (with the old version, it either took out too much or too little and it always sounded weird in the end), removed most of the clicks and sigh (not all, because a bit of hesitation just feels right with this story) and removed the lines I had accidentally left in twice after the first round of editing.

This project is really dear to my heart and I'm actually kind of proud of how it turned out. I hope you enjoy listening to it even half as much as I have reading it.

Fandom: Inuyasha, Yuyu Hakusho
Pairings/Characters: Kagome Higurashi/Shuuichi Minamino, their respective mothers and a lot of random OCs
Rating: PG
Word count: 9647
Summary: Christmas in the mountains, away from time-travelling wells and dangerous, power-hungry youkai sounds like a dream come true to Kagome. Christmas, cinnamon and mothers who think their kids look nice together.
Warnings: mothers bent on matchmaking
Disclaimer: I only own Ana and the random people that are not directly related to the main characters. Kagome, Kurama and whoever else you might recognize belong to their respective creators.
Note: This story has a long history behind it. For something so short, it took an ungodly amount of time to write (it was intended as an entry to a Christmas contest about five years ago on a forum that is long dead). It has also influenced a major decision in my life - if the events would have happened the other way around, I'd have said the story was actually based on personal experience. As it is, it is just a little piece of fluff that just happened to push me in the right direction.

Outside, the winds were howling and snow was building up in large drifts; inside, Christmas sprit was building up. )
