Paraka's Fandom Stuff

Welcome to Paraka Productions

Paraka Productions started off as the webpage for Paraka but has since expanded to hosting fanworks for over 150 people, primarily podficcers.

If you’re a fan who’d like to have their fanworks hosted as well, feel free to contact me at parakaproductions at gmail dot com or leave a comment here.

Note: I typically reply to requests within about 48 hours. If I haven’t responded within a week, please poke me again, I have a bad habit of losing things in my inbox if I don’t respond right away and I always feel horrible when I miss someone (I promise I don’t hate you or anything! I can just be really disorganized sometimes!)

I’m sorry, but I’m not taking on new people to host at the moment, I hope this won’t be permanent.

Hi Paraka!

I’ve finally got around to making some podfic of my own, and I need somewhere to host it. Don’t suppose I could host it here, could I?

Thanks,

— Alex (alexwlchan on everywhere)

Sure, I can set you up when I get home tonight. I’m assuming you want things set up as alexwlchan?

Hi Paraka!

I’ve recently started making podfics and I have been uploading my files to mediafire, but I’ve seen other podficers use your site and it seems like a good system. I would love if you would allow me to host my podfics here. :)

Thanks!

I’ve emailed you the details. :)

Hi!

I’d like to offer streaming for my podfics and don’t really trust mediafire so your site seems like an amazing option – would you them, pretty please?
Rest assured you’d have my everlasting gratitude :)

I’d be happy to host you :) I’ve sent you an email with the hosting information.

Hello there,

I’d very much appreciate the opportunity to host my podfics here. I’ve been having too many issues with the infamous mediafire, and though I’ve looked into dropbox but its not ideal and I’d rather keep it for just personal use e.g school. I would just be over the moon, and eternally greatful if I was given the opportunity. Thank you in advance for your time.

Hope you are well,
Jessie

Of course I’ll be happy to host you. I’ve sent you an email with the details. :)

Hello! I was hoping you’d be willing to host some of the podfics I plan on reading soon. I’d really rather not use mediafire, and I know that you have a very high quality hosting site here. I’ve been listening recently, and these are crystal clear media files.

Sure, I’d be happy to host your podfics for you, what name would you like to use on my site?

Hey, just wanted to say thanks for such great quality reading, as well as hosting so many other cool people. My tablet hates downloading, and you’ve made life so much easier! Cheers, :).

Do you host anyone? Would you host me?

Hey, I’ve emailed you your info. :)

Hey there, rumor (and a posting at podparty) says you are willing to host stories for the 2013 Podfic Big Bang. I have recorded two stories that I would love for you to host. I was just going to use my Dropbox account, but I would much rather have them hosted somewhere. I generally use the audiofic archive, but don’t think that is okay for this project. It looks like one story is 103 MB and the other is 121 MB.

Thanks for considering it. :)

Hey there!
Do you still offer hosting for peoples podfics? I’ve been looking for a host for a while…
Takk!
TheGroupofOne

I am! I’ve emailed you the details.

Hi,
I am looking for somewhere to host my podfics (I’m just starting out, but I have one done). Can you help me?
Thank you,
Janet (sevenpercent on AO3)

I’ve sent you an email with the information!

Hey :) I’ve been making podfics for a little while, and I usually upload them to mediafire and I host them on the audiofic archive, but I’d like to be able to stream them on ao3 and I’m not able to (I think I need to have a direct link to the mp3?) . Will hosting here let me do that? Or are there any other free upload sites that will let me (just because ideally I’d like to keep everything together on the archive)? Sorry, the whole thing has been confusing me and it looks like you’re someone who might be able to help XD

Thank you for your time in advance :3

Cee x

You should have an email from me. :)

Hi,

Mediafire is blocking my podfics :(. Do you think you could host them for me? That would be super super awesome..!

Thanks you,
SallySparrow017

You should have an email from me. :)

Hi,

I’ve spent many hours listening to fics hosted here and thankyouthankyouthankyou because it’s so cool what you’re doing.

I’ve just recorded my first podfic and was kinda hoping you would host it for me?

Thanks again,
FrancesHouseman

Ugh, I’m so sorry! This comment got lost in my inbox. /o\ Do you still want hosting? I can set it up asap if you do.

Heyyy~
Are you still able to help for hosting podfics? I am having little luck finding somewhere :(

Ugh, I’m so sorry! This comment got lost in my inbox. /o\ Do you still want hosting? I can set it up asap if you do.

Hello
I’m new in podficcing, and I’ve been looking for a place to host my podfic that isn’t sound cloud, and a friend pointed me in your direction.
Would it be possible for me to host my stuff with you?

sincerely
Danni

Sure, what name do you want me to set things up under?

Saffronbunbaker please, and thank you SO much for your help! (do you have a place where I could donate and help with the payment of your site?)

I’d also like to apologize for taking so long to answer. I thought that I would remember to check in here in a timely manner, but it was not to be. Again, I’m sorry.

Hey :) I’d love somewhere to host my podfics that doesn’t take them down for including copyrighted music in the opening; would that be ok with you? Thanks so much! (Also, like Danni, I’d love a way that I could donate to running your site. Do you have a Paypal set up for it, or anything?)

You have mail! And I don’t actually have a paypal or anything else set up for donations. Everything is all paid up for now for over a year, and I’m doing fine, but I’ll let you know if I ever do have to break out the donation jar. :)

I love your website it’s the only way I can listen to podfic on my phone! I have recently recorded my first podfic and was interested in what it takes to be hosted on your site.

Thanks so much, Laura

Hi hi Paraka! I’ve (not so) recently started making podfic and I’ve been using mediafire which is…questionably good. I was wondering if you can host me?

You’ve got mail. :)

It’d be really amazing if you could host my podfic too. I’m brand new to the podficcing world, just posted my first one earlier today: http://archiveofourown.org/works/2464703 but I feel like I can’t embed the streaming player on AO3 unless I use this site of yours, which everybody seems to be using. Could you maybe help me out? ;) I’d greatly appreciate it. Thanks in advance!

I am so, so sorry I missed this! I’ve sent you an email now!

Hello Paraka – you were able to help me earlier this year with hosting my fan work. I recently suffered a hard-drive failure and lost the information about my site hosted on your server (forgive me if the technical details are incorrect), as well as the tutorial video on how to self-upload my podfic files.
Could you help me out?

I forwarded that original email with all that info to you. :)

Hey, Paraka,

I’ve recently started making podfics of my own work. I asked my favorite podficcer for advice and they recommended you for direct download hosting for streams. Could you possibly host my podfics? Any information would be appreciated, even if you can’t.

Thanks,
Jessica

Hey, you’ve got mail. :)

Hey~. I was wondering if I could possibly host on your site? I’m brand new to podficcing, and want to do a cover of a good friend’s oneshot~ :3

Thank you for your time~ -Cas

I’ve emailed you the details. :)

Hi Paraka,

I’ve made a few podfic now, and I’d really like to stream them on AO3. I was wondering if you would host my pods for me?

Kind regards,
Andrea AKA PencilSketchS

You should have an email with details. :)

Hello Paraka,
I’ve made a couple of podfic and I was wondering if you could please host them for me? Thank you so much

-lC

Hey, I’m so sorry I didn’t reply sooner! What name would you like me to set things up with?

Hi,
If you’re still offering, I would love to host my podfic with you. I would really appreciate it if you are able. :)

Thank you!
SomethingIncorporeal

I’ve emailed you your info!

Hi,

I’ve recently started making podfics and I would love to host podfics on this site and be able to stream the audio on ao3. Could you host my podfics on this site? :)

Thanks for your time!
~decisivecake

Hello! I would love to host my podfics along with yours on this website and be able to stream them online. I tried to comment before but it apparently didn’t get posted.

Sorry I was so late in responding, but you should have the info in an email now. /o\

Hi Paraka! May I host podfic files here too? Thanks for considering!

I’ve emailed you the details. :)

Put me on the list too for if you ever need donations to help pay for hosting.

Can I have a podfic slot too? :) It’s great that you do this for so many of us.

I’ve emailed you the info :)

Hey! I’ve just started getting into doing podfic and a fair few of my favourite podficcers have their work hosted with you, which was how I discovered your site. Any chance I can host my work here as well? This is such an amazing idea, thanks so much.

You’ve got mail. I based your username off your email, if you want me to change the URL you have though, let me know and I can do that.

hello! in the end i end up here too (i tried other options – none working) so may I be please included in your awesome crowd? *tries to be not intimidated*

Hi Paraka! I’ve been making podfic for about a year, and dealing with uploading and hosting it has always been the trickiest part. I’d love to host here if you’ve got space for me!

Thanks!
Shmaylor

Your info has been sent :)

hi paraka, I already have a site here, but I’m organising a really big (400,000 words big and its still a wip) podfic with multiple readers. I was wondering if I could have a space where we could all upload without me having to give my personal password up and reorganise my stuff (which is kind of a mess ahahaha). Can you email me so we can discuss it a bit further? Thanks :) (if it’s a thing you can do, dragonagepodfic would be an ace name)

Hi Paraka! dapatty recommended your website as a possibility for hosting my podfic. I’ve been using mediafire, but it’s got its limitations.
Thanks :)
daniomalley

you’ve got mail. :)

Stupid question here. Are you still on the policy that you aren’t hosting podfics for new people? That’s fine if you are. I just thought it couldn’t hurt to ask.

Unfortunately yes. I’m looking into some alternatives, but don’t have anything yet. I’ll let you know if I do!
