I'm sick today, and have been largely LJ absent. I've been changing my life, I guess, and been on a course to help me get into the wonderful, oh so wonderful, world of Visual Effects.
Finished the course on Friday, got a job that starts tomorrow, which yay, because I'm really, really poor now. But also woah, because I have barely time to breathe before I'm working for MPC, and eek, because I'm terrified, and *sneeze* because I'm sick.
However, something wonderful is happening online, because Lim has just posted the podfic she's been nurturing for months, and it is wonderful.
Download, and listen, and wonder at all her hard work, at in fact the hard work of loads of people in fandom: Written by the Victors, by Speranza, The Podfic Project
I downloaded and have been listening to it, and it is wonderful, not only because of the great story that is at its core, but because it feels like something... huge. Like we, fandom as a whole, has taken a deep breath and vocalised our passion for each other and the show and the characters.
There were 36 people involved in the project - myself included - and hearing those voices come together really has brought an added dimension to fandom for me.
I honestly can't urge you strongly enough. Go read, and tell Speranza and Lim how wonderful they are for putting this project together.
Now I'm off once more to sneeze, blow my nose, toss my tissue in the general area of the bin, and start rotoscoping. Eep!
