Podfic

Podfic is awesome! )

Fic

My attempts at writing )

I am happy with any repodding, podficcing or transformative works of anything I've done. Just drop me a line letting me know about it!

croissantkatie: (rose)
So, I had this thought a bit over a week ago, and I've said it out loud to a few people but I wanted to write it down as well. And I'm doing it here rather than on twitter, even though it could probably fit, because I want to be able to find it easily. The thought is holding true at the moment, but I want to be able to find it when things are hard and I need a reminder.

I feel like finishing my phd is possible.

I am not actually sure when I last thought that. It's kinda great.
croissantkatie: (tahani)
There is now podfic of my medieval marginalia fic by the wonderful [archiveofourown.org profile] sisi_rambles which can be found here!

Also in my previous post I realised I somehow completely forgot to rec the gifts I received! A massive oversight. Because I was so lucky this year.

Tea for Two
North and South, Margaret Hale/John Thornton
This period drama gives me SO MANY FEELINGS and this is a nice little snippet of life after the series ends and Margaret and John are MARRIED.

Campion and the Siegfried Line
Albert Campion, pre-canon gen
Campion is one of my all time fave period murder mysteries (I have many many faves in this category). This is a pre-canon glimpse of Lugg and Campion meeting and the style is so perfect for Campion.

Both Sides of the Moon
The Mrs Bradley Myesteries, Adela Bradley/George Moody
Another of my fave period murder mysteries! Seriously, if you like Miss Fisher, watch this show. It's the adventures of an older divorced lady who is an expert in psychology as she solves crime with her chauffeur (who she is totally fucking). Just. This fic is so perfect for me.

I'm still not done with reading everything I want to for Yuletide, but here is a second batch of recs!

Recs! )

Yuletide!

Jan. 2nd, 2019 12:28 pm
croissantkatie: (rose)
I wrote two things for yuletide this year: bake at 350 for 90 minutes which is a buzzfeed: worth it fic, told through the preamble to recipes on a food blog. I also wrote rosy as a flushed red apple skin (never been as sweet) which is faux academia about medieval manuscript illuminations. Which is possibly the most me thing I have ever written.

I've been keeping a twitter thread of yuletide stories I've enjoyed, and figured I'd compile them all here as well. I still haven't read everything I want to yet, so this is only recs so far. I was going through fandoms methodically in alphabetical order, but then I decided to fuck it and just clicked on whatever struck my fancy. So this is a bit of a hodgepodge of things!

On with the recs! )
croissantkatie: (luna)
Dear Author,

Thank you so much for taking part in Yuletide! I hope you're happy with the fandom we matched on and that your yuletide goes as smoothly as possible. I would absolutely love a story for any of these fandoms!

A few hardcore do not wants: suicide, self-harm, mental health issues and pregnancy

When it comes to fic, I like happy endings, angst and drama along the way is fine (I even rather like it!) but I really do prefer for things to be resolved (happily) at the end. I am a sucker for a found family and people finding their people. I’d be happy to receive in canon or au fic for all of these fandoms. I have a horrible love of puns and wordplay. I like genfic and teamfic and porny fic, but mostly I love people having feelings (and people having feelings together).

If you feel it would be helpful, my tumblr is here and my pinboard is here.
Fandom specifics! )
croissantkatie: (sherlock/tea)
Dear Author,

Thank you so much for taking part in Yuletide! I hope you're happy with the fandom we matched on and that your yuletide goes as smoothly as possible.

In general, well. I love all sorts of things. I love characters and finding out more about them and how they think and act. I love little slices of life. I love AUs and fluff and angst (so long as there’s a happy ending!). I have a horrible love of puns and wordplay. I ship pretty much anything but also love gen. I am down with kink or no kink. I love sex and romance and friendship and fluff and all sorts of things. I also love poly fic. Poly fic is great. I am also a massive history nerd and all my requested fandoms are historical in some way so that could be fun to play with - slip in the odd period detail! Alternatively, I think they'd all be quite interesting in a modern AU!

A few hardcore do not wants: suicide, self-harm and mental health issues. These are triggers for me so I would really appreciate you steering clear of them.

If you feel like it might be helpful, you can also check out my pinboard and my tumblr.

Les Aventures Extraordinaire d'Adele Blanc-Sec
Characters: Adele Blanc-Sec, Agathe Blanc-Sec, Patmosis, Professor Espérandieu
There's something about the tone of this film that I absolutely love - how absurd it is and yet how Adele takes everything in stride so matter of factly. I love the two sisters and their relationship and how Adele portrays it and how it actually was and how she does love her sister. I love Adele and her penchant for ridiculoaus disguises. To be honest, I'd love to see anything set in this world but particular favourites of mine are the sisterly relationship, Adele going after what she wants with utter determination, and the blending of the historical time period with fantastical elements. Also, Patmosis and the mummies remain hilarious to me.

The Mrs Bradley Mysteries

Characters: Adela Bradley, George Moody, Inspector Christmas
This show is basically catnip for me. I adore it. I absolutely love murder mysteries, and period ones in particular, and fabulous ladies. What I really want is something that explores Adela and George's relationship. I am of the firm opinion that something is going on between them and would love to see something about that, porny or not. If you go down this route, it might also be interesting to look at the tension (or possibly lack of tension) Inspector Christmas and his interest in Adela causes. I'm also super interested in Adela's character and her interest in psychology and her progressive views, so something which looks into that would also be super interesting.

Albert Campion - Margery Allingham
Characters: Albert Campion, Magersfontein Lugg, Amanda Fitton, Stanislaus Oates
I love the tv series with Peter Davison, and came to the books that way. I'm particularly fond of the whimsy in the earlier books and the tv series. I enjoy the way it gentle mocks the trope of the gentleman detective. I love Lugg and his loyalty and his history and his gruffness. I love Amanda and her enthusiasm and her engines. I really enjoy the relationships between all the characters as well. Basically I love all of it and any fic would be amazing.

Dear Podficcer,

Firstly you are super great.

Requested fandoms: Elementary, Les Mis (all versions), Narnia (all versions), Being Human (UK), Leverage, Orphan Black, The Lizzie Bennet Diaries, Carmilla, Old Kingdom series, Brooklyn Nine-Nine

Triggers: suicide, depression, mental health, pregnancy, giving birth

Now on to more positive things! The main thing is I love stories and having stories read to me is even better. I love all sorts of stories! I love fluff and poly and happy endings and aus and historical settings and all sorts of things. I love ladies (this is a long and well documented love), I love fluff, I love AUs (from super close to canon ones to mundane ones to OMG EVERYONE IS MAGIC ones), I love angst as long as there's a happy ending, I love exploring characters and anything about pretty much anyone in my requested fandoms would be amazing. I ship pretty much anything, including OT3s.(the most notable OT3 from these fandoms is Parker/Eliot/Hardison from Leverage). I am incredibly weak to good puns. I love romance and I love sex and I love gen and I love friendship in stories. To be completely honest I mainly just love podfic. I don't know if any of that will help, but there it is!

You can also find me on pinboard at pinboard.in/u:croissantkatie and thecroissantgirl on tumblr, in case you need more insight into what I like!

And finally, thank you very much podficcer. You are fabulous.

Hello yuletide author! I think you're fab. I hope you’re happy with the fandom we were matched for and that everything goes smoothly for you.

In general, well. I love all sorts of things. I love characters and finding out more about them and how they think and act. I love little slices of life. I love AUs and fluff and angst (so long as there’s a happy ending!). I have a horrible love of puns and wordplay. I ship pretty much anything but also love gen. I am down with kink or no kink. I love sex and romance and friendship and fluff and all sorts of things. I also love poly fic. Poly fic is great.

Things I am not ok with: self-harm, suicide and mental health issues. These are fairly hardcore triggers for me. As for things I just dislike. I am not really a fan of humiliation, embarrassment, pranks or mpreg. I hope some of this was helpful. If you want to, you might be able to find out more about my likes and dislikes by looking through my pinboard or tumblr if you think that will help you. Happy yuletide!

Albert Campion - Margery Allingham
Characters: Albert Campion, Amanda Fritton, Stanilaus Oates, Magersfontein Lugg
I absolutely adore these books and the Peter Davison tv series. I love the sense of whimsy and the slight gentle mockery of the genre within them. I tend to prefer the earlier novels and the tv series to the later books when things are slightly grimmer. I love how Campion seems so innocuous but is really sharp and deadly. I love Lugg and his loyalty and his history and his gruffness. I love Amanda and her enthusiasm and her engines. Basically I love all of it and any fic would be amazing.

Les Aventures Extraordinaire d'Adele Blanc-Sec

Characters: Adele Blanc-Sec, Agathe Blanc-Sec
I adore these two sisters and their relationship, and the way Adele represents their relationship and how their relationship actually was. Maybe something about how the sisters relate to each other after the events of the first film? I  also love how fantastical the world is and how Adele, and everyone else to be honest, handles it so matter-of-factly. I would love to see some more of the weird and wonderful world created in the film. Also dinosaurs and mummies! And I remain utterly charmed by the explanation of the pyramid at the Louvre.

Confident - Demi Lovato (Music Video)
Characters: Woman (Demi Lovato), Woman (Michelle Rodriguez)
This song and the accompanying music video just made me feel really badass, even though I am really not. I'd love to see a story about these ladies kicking ass and taking names and working together and maybe kissing each other. Backstory would be awesome, as would be something fleshing out the events of the video, or something set afterwards. I'm pretty easy with this one to be honest.

The Mrs Bradley Mysteries
Characters: Adela Bradley, George Moody, Henry Christmas
I saw one episode of this on tv a little while back and fell in love instantly with Adela Bradley. I immediately went and tracked down the rest of the series on dvd. What I would absolutely love would be something about Adela and George's relationship. I am of the firm belief that there is something between them. After all, at the end of Speedy Death she removes lint from George's coat after having used that same gesture to uncover the relationship between two of the other characters! So something exploring that (whether porny or otherwise), would be amazing. If that's not your bag, I would love something exploring Adela's character. I love the way she takes everything in stride and how modern and unapologetic she is. She is absolutely wonderful and I would love to see fic about her.

I haven't been around here much recently so quick update: I am partway through my masters and applying for a phd. Both of these things are quite scary.

Also, would anyone like Christmas/holiday cards? Form here!

Catch up meme taken from various people!

So what have you been up to?


I am trying to enjoy my summer at the moment. I've got a lot of time off. Trying to find stuff to fill it with. I spent a week working at my local county council archives which was fascinating and I really enjoyed.

Major life changes? Same old same old?

I graduated from uni. That's the main thing. I'm going back in September to do my masters in Medieval and Early Modern Studies. It's at the same uni and I'm leaving in the same house, but I'm still nervous.

What fandom are you in/do you spend most of your time in?

Probably Les Mis? But I'm still in other fandoms and doing other stuff. I am in a lot of fandoms.

Where do you hang out online?

Twitter and tumblr! I try to check dw when I remember though.

What are you reading?

Fic mainly! Apart from that, I'm reading the Demon's Lexicon series which I'm enjoying, and rereading Maskerade.

What are you watching?

Sports. Does sport count? Because I have been watching so much sport.

What are you making?

I have been marbling paper! I now have a bunch of marbled paper and am not entirely sure what to do with it. Suggestions welcome!

What are you squeeing about today?

Today has not been a particularly squeeful day, so nothing.

If you could rope old fandom friends into a new fandom, it would be.....

I don't know!

I should really watch/read/dive into _______ and then come talk to you about it!

Again, I don't know. Actually, wait, Bake Off. Everyone ever should watch the Great British Bake Off!

What else is on your mind?


I am kind of really anxious today. And I've been watching The Ashes, which we are not doing great in today. And now I am watching Mastermind.

So, I asked on twitter and got some great advice but I figured I might as well ask here too.

I feel like trying to do something arty/crafty but I don't really know what. Does anyone have any advice/suggestions/links? Thank you :)

Dear Podficcer,

You are fabulous and amazing and wonderful. Thank you.

This is just a quick life update to say: I got my results for my undergraduate degree the other day. I am going to be graduating with a 2(1) and I got a First for my dissertation. This hasn't sunk in yet even though it's been 2 days. I honestly didn't think I'd get to this point. Thank you everyone, for all your support. <3

croissantkatie: (Default)
Every year I've done Snowflake, I've fallen behind during the second week of the challenge. So these are late but there's no deadline for Snowflake so it's all good :) I will try to finish the rest of the challenge soon!

Day 9
In your own space, talk about what surprises you about fandom. It could be a pairing or fandom you never thought you'd like. A fanwork type you never knew existed. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.


Fandom's generosity. How wonderfully giving everyone is with their time and money and imagination. Just. It continues to surprise me and makes me feel warm. From creating fanworks for other people to kickstarting cons to someone offering a hug on twitter. Yeah.

Day 10
Stretch yourself a little and try something new. Go play in a new fandom or with a new pairing. Try working in a new medium. Or check out some fanworks that are new to you. (The recs from Day 1 might be a good place to start!) Leave a comment in this post saying you did it.


I will try to do this asap! Bar last proof reading and submitting, I've finished my essay so I can now do fannish things guilt free! Or at least, with a bit less guilt. Technically I should now start my dissertation...

Day 11
In your own space, post a rec for fannish and/or creative resources. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.


Some podfic resources! Emiliana Darling's Beginner's Guide to Making Podfic. Podfic 101 by Paraka. How To Podfic by Fire Juggler which contains links to a bunch of other useful things as well!

And on a different note: the electronic introduction to Old English.
