The weekend is almost over. It's been pretty weird. Productive, but weird.

Let me tell you that last week I finally talked with [personal profile] foursweatervests. She's in Madrid, and she's so lovely, you wouldn't believe. She has the cutest accent ever, and she speaks Spanish really, really well. I can't wait to meet her for real, let's see if Real Life behaves itself and we can meet properly. It's going to be AWESOME!

My weekend, in case you were wondering. )

OH! I almost forgot: I wrote two more scenes of my Mer!fic. Adam has Kris totally bemused! Brad is enraged! Cassidy wants to hit himself! So as I said, weird weekend but productive, too.

OK, this is what happens when I go with the Husband to the Cinema.

Spoilers for DH part II )

And I'm starting to like his version better that the canon one.

Have you ever had the kind of week that's so crazy and cruel you just want to curl up under a table and cry yourself to sleep? The kind of week where everything is horrible, people are especially stupid and you can't find a single reason to get out of bed?

That's not the kind of week I had. Last week was amazing. AMAZING.

I finally posted the second installment of my Mer!verse, The Taming of the Shrew. It was a lot of work, and without the help of my lovely, lovely betas [personal profile] cookie, [personal profile] jerakeen and [personal profile] akavertigo, the story would have been a lot worse. They've been so patient, so gracious, so supportive I don't know what I'd have done without them.

And then, to make the week even better, the lovely [ profile] diane_mckay made a Podfic of Too Mer to Woo Peacebly! How lucky am I, really? The luckiest!!!

By now you all know how I think Podfics are kind of the best invention since the apparition of chocolate covered pretzels. I'm in awe of the work podficcers made, of all the care and the time they give us. A good reader brings out things in a fic that sometimes you pass over. They make fics alive in a way that allows you to savour the words, to really enjoy them in a new and different way.

I think we don't thank them enough for all the love and time they spend in their works. And that's why I decided to thank them, one artist at time.

Let me tell you about my crush on [ profile] podklb. She's a true artist. Her voice is fantastic, and she has a way with her intonation that it's truly magic. She's also, one of the most consistent readers out there. Her work is so cohesive that it doesn't matter if parts of her work are weeks apart, you won't be able to notice it. It's truly gorgeous experience to hear her reading, because her cadence is mesmerizing and her voice is delicious. A joy to your soul.

I was so in awe with the work she made with [ profile] passe_simple's Forever, Now that I made a cover for her Podbook of the story. She was pretty pleased with it, so I made her another one, the cover for her incredibly amazing Awesome Ladies Podfic Anthology. Before I knew it, I was amking her covers for almost everyone of her podfics to have them all shiny in my library, because I'm anal like that and she's gracious enough to let me play in her sandbox.

Well, she decided to post a cover everyday for a week ending with a masterpiece, her rendition of [ profile] bexless's hilarious non-fic, This Never Happened. It's a terrific work, go and download it, and then tell [ profile] podklb what a wonderful time you had with it, because let me assure you, you're going to spend three scrumptious hours with it. Trust me, you will.

I'm not going to bore you to tears with my rambling, so just let me show you what I've been doing lately, okay?

Her voice, my covers. )

So tell me, was it last week the best week ever, or what? I posted the fic, and people seemed to like it; I have [ profile] diane_mckay's lovely Podfic of my Mer!verse to squee over, and there are Podfics covers all around!

I'm flailing like Gerard in an Arts Supply Store!

Guys, seriously! Is my life awesome or what?

Surely by now, you all know how much I love podfics. I think they are the best thing ever, second only to macaroons. And to make my affair with podfics even better, the lovely [personal profile] diane_mckay chose The love of my fucking life to fill the prompt 'Record Angrily' of her Podfic_bingo.

I'm so honored and so lucky! Her voice is gorgeous, and the way she reads the characters is so spot on is almost scary. If you liked the story, go to her journal right now and tell her what a wonderful job she did. She deserves rainbows and puppies and a lot of wonderful things.

*** Runs off, clutching her podfic to her chest.***

ETA: And now here's the link to the Audiobook version. I'm the happiest girl ever!"
