I guess because I don't have enough on my plate stressing me the fuck out lately all the time, I've decided to sign up for the [community profile] pod_together challenge where writers and podficcers work together to create something specifically to be podficced. I've never done any challenges besides Yuletide until the Stucky Big Bang last year, and I'm doing the Cap Reverse Big Bang (my posting date is June 12, just saying--I don't expect this fic to go anywhere, but at least now I can say I've done something other than the disastrous SBB). This seemed different, and I figure it's probably one of the few shots I have at seeing something podficced--part of the fun is the idea of seeing if I can create something with that in mind, it really does feel like a challenge. Plus it's smallish, so that's helpful, and the minimum word count is 1,000, which is doable even with all the stress stuff. Most of which should be done by the time I'd need to write. (If you're interested in the challenge, signups look like they close June 3, so still a couple days.)

There's something really squeeful, for me, about having fanworks of your fanworks, maybe you get jaded and it's no big deal when it happens a lot to you, but it's so rare for me that I still get excited. Which I wish I didn't--in the past year or so I've been told that someone podficced Dream of Caramel: or, a Recipe for Disaster like, over a year ago, but that they had to edit it and at this point I've come to accept that it will never see the light of day; I've had at least four people ask if they could translates fics into Russian, and got really excited about that, but again, they will likely never see the light of day; and had someone mention wanting to make a playlist, and again…you get the picture. I should know better than to get excited, and yet every time I do, and every time I get disappointed and then feel like a putz for doing so. It's not that I can read the other languages, it's just…it's the thing I love most about fandom, this unique fannish thing where we create works off of each others' works, a circular world where we're in cahoots. The podfic thing is the heartbreaker, for me--I could actually listen to that, and that story in particular always seemed like it could be fun because it has a built-in soundtrack, and I get sad every time I think about it. Anyway.

The Vividcon premieres vid is not…going. And the deadline is fast approaching, I don't know if I can do this in the time I have. I still don't have the original trilogy footage. Arg. I'm in full panic mode right now, I also found out that the copy of the particular remix of the song I have is protected, it's so old--back when iTunes put restrictions on using the songs. So I have to deal with that too. It's easy to find other remix versions but the one I want is harder to find. I hate everything right now.

The vertigo is getting a little better--there are moments where it's still unpleasant, usually when I'm getting up from bed or a chair, but yesterday I was able to get through the whole day without feeling like I was going to ralph if I moved too quickly. I still can't walk a straight line, and have to be careful not to tilt my head up or down much, but maybe it's on the mend? Who knows.

I'm glad the vertigo is getting better!

What song remix are you looking for? I have a lot of weird stuff floating around on my hard drive...

Ack! I knew I forgot something. I think I can get you original trilogy source. Can you specify scenes/timestamps? Because sending you multi-Gig files might be unwieldy.

Good luck with the podfic collaboration challenge!

I can also rip the original trilogy footage, but only in the next week or so until I wipe this computer and give it to my brother, and finish packing the DVDs away.

So let me know if you need anything.

Good luck with the vertigo! I hope it goes away, yes!

June 2017
