Our fannish lifeblood wants your help! Over the years we've all banded together to donate money, time, and/or talents to various charities - don't you think we should devote some of that energy to this amazing organisation who's maintaining and developing so many sustainable fandom projects for us? I for one, can't remember what fandom was like before AO3. I love that place, and I really hope we can do something to keep it going. 

They've got some great incentives for you if you do donate, such as sending you promotional stuff like stickers, shirts, etc. (dependent on the amount donated) and I believe it is also tax deductible if you are from the US, and if your country supports the applicable law stated on their donation page.

So if that's not enough to convince you, can I provide you more incentive by saying: donate and I will make you podfic?

So how is this gonna work? Basically...

Donate $10, get 3,000 words - with a cap of 15,000 words.

Fandoms I'm willing to podfic:
Any (including NC-17 and RPS), but if I don't know the source material, it will probably sound strange. Preferable fandoms include Sherlock, Merlin, The Social Network, XMFC, anime and manga, etc.
  • If the author has not given blanket permission, you will need to ask and show proof of their consent to have their story podficced.
  • In the unlikely event that this would happen, I am only human and cannot reward you with a podfic over 15K even if you were to generously donate more than $50.
  • I am rarely squicked, but I reserve the right to have you choose another story if it's more than I can handle.
  • Word count limits will be upheld within reason.
  • My strength lies in comedy/crack, my weakness would probably have to be porn and drama.
So here's what you have to do:
  1. decide on a story that meets or is under the word limit.
  2. grab permission if the author is not one who has granted blanket permission.
  3. Comment here or PM me with the proof of permission, as well as the proof of donation.
  4. If the story isn't more than I can handle, wait until I get off my arse to deliver the goods.

Ok, you've pushed me over the edge. I'll donate. I was going to donate anyway, but then you said donate and I'll make you podfic:D

:) Excellent. I'll bet my friend would go for this deal and then I could have you podfic it instead of me doing a half-assed job on it.

Same here: I was going to donate anyway because AO3 = AWESOME. But then you said...... I know I know, I still haven't sent you the rest but this is just a too fantastic offer to pass!

I can't remember what fandom was like to me before AO3. It certainly and entirely has changed my way of fandom/fannish life.

Is no one taking you up on this offer? Can I attempt to spread the word? I did mention it last week, but apparently no one noticed. I have no idea why I talk about anything on LJ/DW since people don't seem to care about my recs, but I have to have somewhere I can squee about stuff:)

It totally mystifies me, people not liking podfic. I mean, if you don't like fanfic, I can understand that, and there are people who don't like audio stuff, and I can understand that, but the rest of the teeming masses ought to enjoy podfic as far as I'm concerned:)

Someone told me they thought it would be weird to have a woman's voice reading the stories. That seems strange to me as I "hear" things with my voice anyway, so what difference should that make? *shrug* Everyone is different and the important point for me, at the end of the day, is that there are people out there making brilliant podfics:) ♥

(I noticed you got a new fan, by the way. I'm glad to see other people are appreciating you too.)

I learn best by talking:) But I don't mind listening to women read. I like it. Especially when the reader has a soothing voice.

Are there male podficcers? Do you know any?

Yes! Fleurrochard. I saw her mention you in a welovepodfic entry I think.

Please let me know what I need to do to make this happen and I will do it! Just donate and let you know or....? I would seriously cry to get you to podfic one of my favorite fics. Oh, man.

AO3 is an amazing site. I'm totally down with supporting it in any way I can.
