TW Podfic: Pocket Watch Boy

Posted by: paraka on: December 22, 2009

Fic: Pocket Watch Boy by [personal profile] mhalachaiswords (text link)
Fandom: Torchwood
Pairing: Jack/Ianto
Summary: Ianto Jones is a very different sort of boy.
Notes: This fic is probably one of my favourite in the Torchwood fandom. I love the idea of Ianto not being human, because otherwise you know his relationship with Jack is going to end in tragedy. This fic does a great job of showing both sides of such a revelation: the long term good effects of having that ticking clock taken away from their relationship, and the short term bad effects of trust issues and finding a middle ground.

I hope people enjoy my reading of it. There was absolutely no way I could effectively pull off accents for the fic, so I didn’t even try, it’s all in my Canadian accent. I’m sure I butchered the Welsh that was in it because it’s really hard to find sound samples for them online.

This podfic was made for [personal profile] revolutionaryjo for [community profile] amplificathon‘s 2009 Podbang challenge. Thank you so much to the mods for running that challenge. There can never be enough long podfic in the world. :)

Hello! I'm Paraka and I've been floating around fandom since 2003. You can find me being fannish all over the place but these days mostly on AO3, and a little bit on Twitter (though that seems to be mostly politics these days).

All my fannish works are theoretically supposed to be hosted here, though sometimes I fall behind, so AO3 might be the most up to date.
