I've been listening to a lot of podfic in a lot of different fandoms (I blame [personal profile] eosrose for getting me hooked, okay?). Alas, I've been really bad about commenting. So this weekend, I'll be going through the podfic tag at AO3 and leaving comments and/or kudos on everything I can recall listening to. Some of this comments may be kind of generic, since it's been a while, but love is love is love, right?

I invite anyone out there who listens to podfic to join me in my quest to spread a little adoration around a corner of fandom that doesn't receive much appreciation. Remember: even a simple "Great podfic!" may brighten someone's day!

If you decide to join up, why don't you leave me a comment. I'd love to flail with you over what fandoms you listen to and what podficcers first drew you in. ♥

Notes: This has been a wild ride! All my gratitude goes out to the mods over at [livejournal.com profile] spn_adambang for organizing this challenge and being so patient with me throughout; to [livejournal.com profile] _bluebells for holding my hand and keeping me from giving up; to [personal profile] eosrose for flailing enthusiastically even when I wouldn't let her see what I was working on; to [livejournal.com profile] cashay for creating such lovely art; and to [livejournal.com profile] cosmo_naught for jumping in to help with some last-minute beta work.
Summary: In a world where vessels are rare and necessary treasures for powerful mages, serving boy Adam finds his world turned upside down when he's called forth to take his half-brother's place as vessel and bondmate to Michael, Archmage of Water. Will this be the doom Adam expects it to be? Will the bond even take? And, for the love of the gods, will anybody ever tell him why it's so vital that he begin submitting to the bond practically before he even shakes off the dust from travel?

Ship: Lucifer/Sam Winchester

Summary: Four weeks ago Sam was hospitalized after a car accident that left him battered, bruised, and robbed of his memories. Three weeks ago Sam was released into the custody of Luc, a man who is apparently his long-time boyfriend. Now Sam is still struggling to make sense of the blank spaces in his head and start rebuilding his life. He thinks maybe he's starting to get a handle on things. He's wrong.

Notes: This was written for the FYSL Hotter Than Hell Fanwork Exchange. My giftee, [tumblr.com profile] santy-anno (who writes awesome Lucifer/Sam ficlets BTW), gave me the following prompts: (1) lace; (2) plum; and (3) "The Devil follows me day and night, because he is afraid to be alone." --Francis Picabia. While brainstorming ideas for a response, I shared these prompts with my darling [livejournal.com profile] bluebells, who inspired me to write this story. My interpretation of the prompts is pretty loose, but I hope you like it anyway, [tumblr.com profile] santy-anno!

I'm not sure if it's even possible to call this a rec list as I'm really not all that picky about what I read. So, if I've read a story, it'll probably wind up here. Unless it was hard for me to get through for some reason (e.g. songfic, experimental style that leaves me confused, crazy grammar). So this isn't really a recs list, but it's not a master list either, since I'm a little selective. Whatever this is, hopefully someone will find it useful!

Happy Birthday, [livejournal.com profile] nileflood! This was a great prompt and a real pleasure to fill. I hope your special day is been bright with joy.
