#ITPE Dear Podficcer Letter

Dear Podficcer,

This is delightful! I'm super excited and know that you are intrepid and awesome!!! I’m certain that I’m already gonna love what ever you make because you’re wonderful beyond measure. ♥ Please consider this a jumping off point or a possibly needed point of inspiration. Feel no need to adhere to anything contained herein other than squicks, because squicks dude. :)

Fandoms that I would love to hear something from include: Supergirl, Wonder Woman, Leverage, Babylon 5, Teen Wolf, Bandom, The Flash, Legends of Tomorrow, Warehouse 13, Jupiter Ascending, Supernatural, DCU, Star Wars the original trilogy and The Force Awakens, and Avengers/Marvel Movie'verse.

So Supergirl is still pretty Happy Making. Like totes. It’s just so bright and hopeful and I just want nice things for everyone on that. Specifically Kara and Alex being sisters, Kara/James, Alex/Maggie(because those two should seriously) or even Alex/Lucy. Fun crossovers with the Flash where Kara and Barry are basically adorbs puppies who save the day and then have snacks is also totally my jam. Just like, maybe avoid Mon-el because blah. Like, honestly, he’s a little boring, especially if he’s with Kara. Why is she even bothering with that nonsense when there’s a perfectly great James Olsen nearby? Like seriously.

For Wonder Woman, I'll be real with you and have more movie knowledge but I'd be down for Diana being awesome in any capacity in any universe, comics or otherwise. And like, Steve Trevor can somehow not be dead if you’re going in a movie!verse direction. But Diana/Peggy Carter has a very special place in my heart for the record. Very. Special.

If you are inspired in a Bandom direction, I'm remain deep love with Fall Out Boy (like Pete/Anyone. But I'm totally down for band crossovers. Like Pete/Gerard. Don't feel limited to FOB, other bands are also awesome and happy-ear making like MCR, Panic! and Empires. Panic-wise, I know Spencer is no longer in the band, but he’s still kind of my favorite. Look, I just have a lot of feelings about Spencer Smith. A lot. Seriously, so many feelings. And everyone knows that Empires is totally a band full of werewolves, right? Because they totally are. But no wife bashing please because they’re all wonderful and it’d bum me out if they ended up in jealous!gf/wife role. Total bummer.

If you are inspired in a Teen Wolf direction: The ladies are totally my jam. Allison (totally not dead shhhhh very much alive) and Lydia being besties and hot together or Erica being awesome (because not dead either), ect. Sure, Stiles/Derek not realizing that they are in love/dating then realizing it and fluff ensues in the future is pretty wonderful too, but ladies. Future!AUs are TOTALLY my jam for all this business. And like. Just, Peter/Anyone is best avoided for I believe him to be slimy and mostly squicky unless it's in a banter capacity.

Warehouse 13 is very much a yay team kinda vibe where HG/Myka is totally the ship that happened in that finale. Totally. Or like Claudia being awesome and Jinx being snarky and Pete being Pete, you know?

Leverage wise, let's be real, the OT3. You know the three. YES THEM. All the them. Because them. Whether there's a job or the moments between jobs, I am SO down for those three. Heck, even gen fic where there's Chosen Family Shennanigans. Because CHOSEN FAMILY. Seriously, like you can’t go wrong with found family, not just here, but like any of my fandoms.

Speaking of OT3s, let’s talk Star Wars. For the original trilogy that’s totally my jam. Or Leia Getting Shit Done with or without those two and just generally being a badass. Because really Finn/Poe/Rey are sooooooo excellent or a variety of pairs with any of those three. But like, Kylo doesn’t deserve my love because manpain and I don’t even have patience for waxing poetic on any nonsense like that.

Basically with Jupiter Ascending, I love dogs and have always loved dogs and Jupiter is the BEST EVER. Also, random crossovers with GotG are totally cool. BUT DOGS.

For the DCU what I’m specifically talking about is bat!family because reena_jenkins is a MENACE and quite the salesperson and I don’t even really go here but every time I stop by it gives me a LOT of FEELS. Especially Jason Todd coming back to the fold. I just *wavey of hands of what even**.

As for the Marvel Cinematic universe/Agents of SHIELD/Guardians of the Galaxy/DareDevil/Jupiter Jones/Luke Cage/Agent Carter direction: I ship everyone with everyone, including everyone in Guardians of the Galaxy. Just all the shipping all the time. Special places/ships of my heart include Melinda May/Natasha Romanov, Darcy Lewis/Natasha Romanov, Darcy Lewis/Lady Sif, Steve/Bucky, Sam/Bucky (these two for real though like seriously I cannot even with these two), Darcy Lewis/Clint Barton and just the ladies being rad. Because ladies. Oh! And those two avocados from DareDevil because of all the fluffy pining fic involving Foggy/Matt. Peggy Carter remains the hero our world deserved and I ship her with pretty much anyone in all her glorious badassary. Really, just do anything that doesn't involve shipping Grant Ward with anyone or giving him a redemptive arc because no. Just no. Everything else is golden and wonderful and gives me all good feelings but Ward is dirt and doesn't deserve my love. But like, full discretion, I haven’t seen any Agents of SHIELD since the finale of season three and have no idea what’s going on there.

For Legends of Tomorrow and The Flash: Anything, specifically into Sara being awesome with/without a side of femmslash. Barry/Iris is SO GREAT, but Barry/Cisco is also cool. But like. Mainly just the ladies, like Laurel being badass, I'm totes here for because Laurel is so not dead. So not if you found a Sara specificfic and Laurel is there because so not dead. Especially not for any manpain reasons. Because manpain is so not on. I’m bored with manpain is what I’m saying. So bored. Only real anti-ship other than avoiding the manpain in general would be Flash/Cold or whatever the kids are calling it these days. But Leonard Snart being his campy ridiculous self in hijinks capacity is totally fine.

Babylon 5: This show I cannot even because feeeeeeeeeeeels. But Susan/Talia. Really, I'd read anyone with anyone, canon or not. I have a LOT OF FEELINGS about these plucky characters and ALL THEIR SASS. SO MUCH SASS.

Supernatural: Basically Jo Harvelle isn't dead, deserves nice things, and I would be down for something involving her. Yep, that's it. I know, kinda narrow, but JO.

Tropes and things that I enjoy: I LOVE all tropes especially like found/chosen families and faily people in love and figuring it out, sometimes naked or not. Werewolves and/or shapeshifters are ALWAYS a plus. Really, what ever ridiculous au that covers anything from space to coffee shops where people fall in love and maybe there's wings and/or humor that ends happily. But seriously, you cannot go wrong with werewolves, but you don't have to go with werewolves. I'm just saying. And you can never go wrong with awesome ladies. <3

Squicks and things that for potential avoidance: Noncon is an absolute no but Dubcon and/or pre-negotiated noncon roleplay are okay. I'm not into heavy angst, character death/dismemberment/maiming/rape, cannibalism, scat, psychological torture, heavy jealousy, wife/gf hating, Grant Ward/Anyone and/or a Grant Ward redemption type story, and animal harm. Oh, and like PWPs are not my go-to, necessarily. I like a little bit of story or at least a lead up to Pete had a bad day and Gabe is going to tie him up to take care of him in a kinky way. If you’re not into recording porn, that is absolutely fine. I’d be glad for some gen or the sexy time happening off-screen.

But seriously, if you need any clarification or have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask a mod to pass it on or you can comment anonymously here and I will answer. You can check out what I've got bookmarked to podfic on AO3 but don't feel tied to that. Just a jumping off point. You are already a winner and the raddest. I want you to have fun and not feel stressed. You are amazing and delightful, seriously. I’m stoked to hear what you do. ♥ ♥ ♥

Squeefully yours,

It is strange to be in a situation where I both feel too old and yet too young. We decided to head out to see a local hot club band playing up in Lake Forest Park, and one of the things I noticed immediately was that most of the audience is 10 or several more years my senior. For this sort of music, and lots of jazz and other things I go to see, this doesn't necessarily surprise me.

I remember when I went to see the Dave Brubeck quartet when they passed through Albuquerque not quite 30 years ago. I was 18, and most of the audience was at least 40 or 50. It was interesting watching these older guys clutching their vinyl hoping to get an autograph. I found it cool that I was interested in the band at such an age, and I didn't care too much that I didn't know anybody my age that would have appreciated it. We all definitely enjoyed the concert, and we each got our turn meeting Dave back stage. :-)

Along those lines, I noticed that there is a 20-something group here that looks to be having a grand old time dancing and otherwise really enjoying the music. It is fun to watch them, and they also make me feel a little old. Old in that I was too shy and too wound up in my head to have these sorts of experiences when I was that age, and while this old dog can still learn a few new tricks, I feel like I have a lot less disposable time in my life than I did back then. Funny how that is.

Sometime in the future, I think I need to find a dance teacher that will give me some extended one-on-one time. We tried dance lessons at one of those weeknight classes they have at one of the dance studios with a dozen or so people, and while they were ok, they are kinda rushed, and I found it embarrassing to try and dance with a partner (particularly when we'd switch it up beyond the person I came with) when I really didn't have a good grasp of the steps. I felt like I was wasting their class time stumbling through. Maybe ultimately I wasn't, but I remember having a rough time with that part.

Things to plan time to do. :)

Every time I come here to look to write, I get overwhelmed by the volume of things I want to write about. I think the solution is to just make a list somewhere so I don't forget anything, and then just knock out a topic or two at a time. Seems like a workable idea, no? :-)

A lot of what has been on my mind is the state of the world lately. Not just politically, but the fact that the change in season is bringing about pretty hefty storms and fires and earthquakes and lots of the like, and a lot of people out there are suffering as a result. We are fortunate that our local impact is minimal. Obviously, even the smoke we've been having from the local fires has been minimal compared to the dealings of others more directly affected. But as always, it's a reminder to be grateful, and also a reminder to work on being prepared for troubles as they might come.

Sometimes, that preparation is just living with the idea that things can happen rather than ducking our heads in the sand and denying the possibility. By acknowledging that things can happen, that already puts us in a better place. Then even just thinking about what we would realistically do is another better place. Better to have thought about it and avoid the initial shock of disbelief when it happens than deal with the emotional trauma of the break in reality from our own self-created delusion. Beyond those things, sky is the limit on preparing. Red Cross makes lists of basics, and beyond that, sometimes it is helpful to include it in your day to day planning by adding a little extra storage-capable food in your weekly grocery shopping (things you either already eat or would eat). Also, try saving towards your upcoming bills and building up that essential bills pad. Not all bad things come in global sizes. Sometimes planning for something simple as losing your job puts you ahead of the game should that happen.

These preparation ideas are probably mostly for those who are privileged enough to be able to do these things. Others may have a more difficult time with these, and in fact may already be living their own crisis. So.. take advantage of your preparations and help others as they request and as you are able. It is the right thing to do. We are all humans and we all deserve to succeed. Lifting each other up makes us all better.

Stay safe, prepare, live, and love. <3
