Avengers Podfic: Smaller Without You

Posted by: paraka on: October 12, 2017

Fic: Smaller Without You by [archiveofourown.org profile] 27dragons (text link)
Co-Podficcer: [archiveofourown.org profile] miss_marina95
Fandom: Avengers
Pairing: Steve/Tony
Summary: The doctor pulled out the teacher’s chair and sat across from Steve, his hands folded and his face solemn and kindly. “It happens once in a while,” he said. His voice was soft and gentle, and irrationally, it made Steve angry. Such ugly news ought to be delivered in a more fitting tone. “The most likely cause is that your intended mate died before you were born or shortly after they were born, before the bond had time to fully form. It’s called a Type C or a Type–”

Steve wasn’t interested in the terminology. “Is that why I’m… like this?” He gestured down at his frail, sickly body.

“Probably,” the doctor said. “There are some further tests we can give you, down at the hospital, to determine–”

“Why bother?” Steve growled, slumping back in his chair and crossing his arms. “My mate is dead and no one else is going to want me, not like this.” Tears stung his eyes and he blinked them back furiously.

“It’s also possible, though less likely, that you’re a Type A — firstborn of the pairing — but that your mate has simply not yet been born,” the doctor said.

Notes: This was recorded the weekend Age of Ultron came out in North America but has been languishing on our hard drives for forever while we waited to finish it up.

Avengers Podfic: To Make Much of Time

Posted by: paraka on: February 6, 2017

Fic: To Make Much of Time by [archiveofourown.org profile] Sineala (text link)
Fandom: Avengers (616)
Pairing: Steve/Tony
Summary: When Iron Man rejects Steve’s romantic advances, Steve is disappointed, but of course he understands — Iron Man’s secret identity is important. But when a portal opens and Tony Stark crashes into their midst from twelve years in the future, Steve starts to suspect that there are more secrets here than he can even begin to comprehend, and neither Iron Man nor Tony are providing any answers.

X-Men Podfic: Enigma

Posted by: paraka on: October 29, 2016

Fic: Enigma by [archiveofourown.org profile] Yahtzee (text link)
Fandom: X-Men
Pairing: Charles/Erik
Summary: Written for the following prompt: Erik dies, or finds a reversey-time mutant, or a magical time travelling device, and wakes up in the past. This time, though, it’s before he ever met Charles – in fact, it’s before his mother died.

He can save his mother that one time (thanks to his mastery over powers carrying back), but what does Erik do after that? Does he stick around, or escape and run to find Charles again (and hope everything doesn’t go wrong)?
Notes: Recorded as part of Marvel Big Bang 2016.

For someone who usually doesn’t bother adding music to my podfic, I used a lot of music in this one. The idea was to use music to indicate the time period. Each scene break has music that reflects the time and, hopefully, the mood or theme of the scene. Since the author didn’t list years very often, I handwaved the timeline together based on hints in the fic, movie dates, actor’s ages, and wild guessing. :P

I used Music Outfitter’s Top 100 lists and Youtube a lot to find all the music.

Fic: Will You Strike While He’s Still Loading by [archiveofourown.org profile] shaenie (text link)
Fandom: Avengers
Pairing: Steve/Tony
Summary: Fury says, “You’re fucking with me. You expect me to send in some random person to replace you, when you’ve already got a strong rapport with Stark. However you managed to get it.” Fury shakes his head, but smiles a little ruefully. “I’d have to be a moron to try and reassign you. Stark would shut down any attempt at replacing you.” He shakes his head again. “You keep surprising me,” he says. “You’re sure you don’t feel coerced in any way?”
“Not in the slightest, Director. If anyone tricked anyone, I tricked him. I don’t want this information used against Tony,” Steve says, his voice as commanding as he knows how to make it.
Fury holds up both hands, not in surrender, but as if to balance. “No one but me needs to know this, and I hope to never talk about Stark’s sex life ever again.” There is finally some amusement in his voice. Steve’s shoulders relax. “I do have a recommendation, however,” Fury says.
“Sir?” Steve asks.
“Tell him who you are. Stark does not like surprises. He won’t appreciate finding out after the fact.” Fury gives him a long look. “That’s not an order, but think about it. If he finds out and you aren’t the one that tells him, he’s going to react badly.”
Notes: Recorded for [archiveofourown.org profile] vassalady, it was supposed to be part of #ITPE 2014 but I’ve clearly missed that date by a long shot.
Content notes: This story has the following content tags: BDSM. Dom/sub, Kink Negotiation, Kink Exploration, Humiliation, Subspace, (and more but I came up with the list on AO3 and that page isn’t loading now so I’ll come back and edit the rest in).
