What I've Said Those Close to Me Pick a Day, Any Day All About Me QaF Vault - great fanfic! In Days of Yore In Days of Yore

I just realized that it has probably been a year since I have posted here. Life is just been too crazy, I work 6 days a week, and have little time to catch up on anything else. I do however love listening to great podfic, especially Supernatural and J2. In fact, on my long commute, and at the gym that is usually what I do.

I previously downloaded literally almost a thousand podfics of both J2 and SPN for my iPod. But there are times when I am out and about with just my phone, and like to check to see if there is anything new.

It seems like the audiofic archive by jinjurly has been down for maintenance for quite a while. Does anyone know anything about this?

Of course, it's been so long since I've been on here, that I will probably get no replies at all.

I hope life has been treating everyone well! Let me know if anyone out there is listening.

In case anyone is looking at this journal to see if it's active, the answer is...

... kind of.

Meaning that:

1) I work 6 days a week, and commute a distance for 3 of them, so I have little free time.

2) I started my own business in the last year, which takes a lot of my time.

3) I have been CRAZY into Supernatural, and listening to a lot of podfic (during exercise and aforementioned commuting), which leaves little time for much else. I downloaded *literally* 815 different SPN podfics, and well over 400 J2 podfics, and have completed all the J2, and about 150 of the SPN.

4) Oh, and I have a family that I've been neglecting.

That being said, I *really* miss the feeling of community that I found here during the Queer as Folk days. It probably is as much, if not more, due to my being overly scheduled than a lack of community in Live Journal.

I *really* hope if anyone is reading this, and contemplating either 1) removing me from their fic lists, or 2) wondering if they should add me; that they PLEASE KEEP ME/LET ME IN!

And any SPN/J2 fanfic recs, or podfic recs, or ficlist recs, would be GREATLY appreciated!

I got this idea from my sister, who has an amazing list of Supernatural fanfiction. She wanted to remember the good stuff, because, as you know, it can drive you crazy when you can't find that fic that YOU KNOW YOU HAVE READ!!!!

*pants*

So here is the start of my list, in no particular order as yet.Collapse )

I've been in Westeros, Dorne, & to The Wall and back for the last 6 months. Now I join the world begging George R.R. Martin to *WRITE*!!!!

That being said, I *so* look forward to catching up on all the fic that's been writen in the past 6 months since Fire & Ice stole my mind.

SPN & J2, here I come!

Any recommendations would be welcome! I especially love Were fic!

I am currently diving into both the written (spoken) and visual (TV series) of Game of Thrones. And it got me thinking...

I'm really liking Game of Thrones, and I'm only on S1E6. And I'm really trying to get caught up for the new season, which is starting tomorrow!

I also previously bought, but hadn't listened to, the first book from Audible, which is 33 hr 53 minutes to cover 73 chapters in 704 pages. I started listening to it after I started the TV show, and really enjoy how it fills in a lot of back story that they had to skim over on screen.

Like...

SpoilersCollapse )

And that is in the first 2.5 hours of the first audiobook!

All these things make it more interesting. Anyone else reading and watching... or has read before watching or vice versa? What is your take?



I am pretty far behind in the audiobook from where I am in the TV show, and decided to try to figure out how long it was going to take me to listen to the entire published series so far (5 books). I figure I can listen to it at the gym (45 minutes, 5-7 days a week), on the way to and from work in Covington (30 minutes each way, 3 days a week), and doing chores... about 7-8 hours a week.

Breaking that down...
4273 - number of pages
344 - number of chapters
11933 (~199) - minutes (hours) of audiobooks
~25-29 - weeks it will take at 7-8 hrs/week

So, if I don't slack at all (which is unlikely)... it will take 6-7 months minimum. Wow...

I think I'll keep a counter! Where am I now...

Audiobooks:

155 / 11933 minutes. 1% done!

TV Series (10 episodes a season, S4 in production):

5 / 40 episodes. 13% done!

Anyone hate the new way the "Add to Memories" button works as much as me?

How the Hell do you add your own tags? It used to be so easy!

Or maybe it still is, & I just don't know how to use the new system...

I feel...: frustrated frustrated

... is a little too masculine to be pretty, a little pretty to be so... rugged.

Jensen's appearance, in 3 words...

Masculine
Pretty
Rugged

In short, an amazingly beautiful man!

In case anyone is checking my LJ out to see if I'm a real person or a troll (since I'm friending a lot of new people who write wonderful Supernatural or J2 fanfic), I just wanted to say...

I'm real!!!

And I rarely post, because SUPERNATURAL HAS EATEN MY BRAIN!!! Like the prettiest zombie ever...

If anyone wants to recommend a good fanfic, podfic, vid, etc, I'd be more than happy to have it!

Wow, Jensen Ackles & Channing Tatum both had their first child born on May 30th... & both babies were girls!

 

If Jensen wasn't on Supernatural,  I think they would be competing for the same roles... & I know who I'd prefer! 

 

The similarities never cease!

 

I look forward to what the future holds for Jensen,  Daneel, & sweet baby Justice!

 

ETA: And now, magazines are saying Everly Tatum was born May 31st, so maybe not on the same day? Or the magazine was wrong... Glad if they each have their own day!

I was updating my iPod today from nwhepcat's podfic recs, and looked at my "J2 Favs" playlist, which I haven't updated in forever. Since they made my top podfic list, I thought I'd share them here!

There are so many podfics out there that I want to rec, but getting it all together is proving a bit difficult (damn perfectionist tendencies!), so I have decided to rec along while I listen, and try to catch up on the older stuff (well, older to me anyway, in listening time) as I can.

I downloaded drvsilla's PBR (Professional Bull Riding) 'Verse a long time ago, probably a year at least. At the time, I thought "Professional Bull Riding? This probably isn't for me... and it's LONG!" but because I am a collector and a hoarder, I downloaded it... and promptly put it at the bottom of my LLoP (long list of podfic). And when I got to it? I skipped over it in favor of starting on SPN podfic.

But as I was searching out fanfic from communities recced by my sister, hsifeng, I noticed that in the top 30 list of one of them (sawedoff_recs?) there it was. So I decided to listen.

And man, I LOVE it! It has pulled me into a world that I didn't even really think about before, and is so well written (and well-read by one of my favorite readers, chemm80 that I find myself gravitating to it even when I would normally be doing something else. So here are the links!

I have been plowing through all the J2 podfic I could find - over 350 fics! And I rated them all from 0-5 stars on my iPod. I am going to try to list all the ones I rated at 4-5 stars, with links for easy access, which will be a big project.

So I decided to start smaller... with 8 of my favorite podfics. Here we go! Collapse )

Wow, that's like *62* Hours of podfic, unless I counted wrong!

I'll work on some links to shorter works, as I know sometimes the long ones can seem daunting. And let me know if any of the links don't work - I'll fix 'em!

Last year, I downloaded ALL the J2 podfic I could find on LJ & from General Jinjur.

That was over 350 podfics - & I listened to almost all of them. And rated them on my iPod.

So I am going to come back to this again in the future & make a list of my favorites, with links.

I have my Gold Pass & my VIP card, plus the #1 (& #2) upgrade slots for next year!

Man, the girls at the front of the line were a bit testy about me & my sister getting to be in front of them, which made no sense (since all Gold Seats are pre-assigned) until I realized that the upgrade options for next year went in line order. So I guess I would have been a little upset, too, if I had been waiting (as she had) since 3 p.m. to get the first one, & I breezed in at 8:45 & took her place.  And got Upgrades #1 & 2.

 

Can't wait for tomorrow, when the festivities start! But first, I'm going to try to get a good nights sleep, hit the hotel spa tomorrow morning for a workout, steamroom, sauna, & jacuzzi, and then it's go time!

If you forget that someone isn't there (& hasn't been for 2 days), do you think they would be upset to think you hadn't noticed before?

By which I mean, saying (once) "I keep forgetting you're gone until you don't answer me."


Wow, that looks much worse written out...

Just stopping by my journal to let anyone who might be interested know that I'm still around. I usually stalk ONTD, and search out J2 & SPN fanfic, but haven't really been posting to my own journal.

But this *is* an active journal... and if there was a good Android app for it, I'd be here more often!
