Since I've now had a couple of people express interest in podficcing my stuff, I figure I should just come up with a public policy for that instead of dealing with it case-by-case. So!
My policy...is a little convoluted, because while I am sincerely flattered and pleased that anyone would want to record or listen to podfic of something I wrote, I...probably won't listen to it myself? See, I have weird embarrassment issues with watching video or audio recordings of myself, having something I wrote read aloud, being in the same room with someone while I know they are reading something I wrote, etc., to the point where I avoid doing all those things as much as I can. And I wasn't sure about this until it actually became an issue, but...yep, turns out that does extend to listening to someone read my fic.
But! I really really don't think my weird personal issues should stop people who enjoy podfic from enjoying it. Seriously, if you want to record a fic of mine, you absolutely have my blessing. I just hope it won't bother or upset you if I don't listen to it, and I want to establish at the outset that I'm probably not going to so you're not wondering why I never commented on it.
So! If, given that, you still want to podfic my stuff, here is the rest of my policy:
1. This is blanket permission to podfic anything I've posted here, so you don't need to ask me, although if you want to give me a heads-up that you're doing it, that's fine!
2. Link to the original fic post when you post your podfic.
3. Please don't edit or change the story at all (unless it's in the case of, like, a typo that slipped through the beta process, in which case please DO record it correctly /o\).
4. Please don't link, email, give or in any other way directly expose podfic of my stories to the people who are in them. This also goes for the fics themselves, by the way. I hope I don't need to tell anyone this but I get paranoid like that sometimes.
5. Link me to the finished product and I will gladly post about it here!
...I think that's it. Let me know if you have a question about something I haven't addressed here. Otherwise, go forth and podfic!

violence, self-harm, discussion of suicide, mentions of drug use and addiction problems, dubcon, demonic possession and horror themes Summary:
After discovering his psychic ability--and talent for communicating with ghosts--at a young age, Gerard threw himself into the study of the supernatural. With the help of his mentor, his brother, and his friends, he'd begun making a name for himself as a paranormal investigator. Then his team took a case that sent them reeling and threatened to break them apart when they needed each other most. A year later, still haunted by the past, the team's latest case takes a dangerous turn, and they'll have to fight to make it through with their lives--and souls--intact.Author's Notes:
This is a story I have wanted to write since 2008, though it's evolved a lot since then, and tried and failed to write in 2009. It would probably still be languishing in my WIP folder if it wasn't for tuesdaysgone
. From the moment I said I was thinking of trying to write it again she encouraged me and helped me talk myself into it. And then she beta'd it, too, because she's just that awesome. Huge thanks to her, my artist and mixer, and the BBB mods!Disclaimer:
This story is incredibly fictional. Don't google yourself. Certain liberties have been taken with the history and geography of the Paramour. On DW: Part One, Epilogue or AO3 Bonus Materials Fanart:One Piece

My Chemical Romance, Frank/GerardRating:
Mentions of drug and alcohol abuseSummary:
AU where the band never happened and Gerard quit his job at Cartoon Network to paint instead. After hitting rock bottom and going to rehab, he's back at home, struggling with a vicious creative block and trying to figure out his next move. When he reconnects with Frank at a Leathermouth show, the attraction is instant. Frank inspires Gerard more than anyone or anything has in a long time, but it's up to Gerard to turn that inspiration into a second chance.Author notes:
Written for the bandomreversebb

. The mix was great to work with--it inspired me right away, and I hope the fic does it justice! Many thanks to anoneknewmoose
for their awesome and speedy betas.(Mikey’s been saying he thinks Gerard would be into this band for a while now, but they’ve been playing bars and clubs, places Gerard still doesn’t trust himself and Mikey knows better than to invite him.)

Violence, homophobia, consent issues (prostitution, sexually threatening situations, and noncon groping)Notes:
Sequel to Shook-Up World
, which should probably be read first. Apparently, "period pieces where Gerard crossdresses" is a niche I am very
comfortable in. Standard disclaimers apply: these representations of real people are entirely fictional and nonprofit, I've tried to make sure there are no glaring inaccuracies but the bulk of my research was Wikipedia and gangster movies. I do want to mention my main form of research that was neither of those things, the documentary Before Stonewall
, which is well worth a viewing if queer history is relevant to your interests. Many thanks to my awesome betas, fleurdeliser

Summary: It's the last year of Prohibition, and bootlegger Frank Iero wants to sever his ties to the world of organized crime and go straight, but his mob connections have other plans for him. No one would like to see Frank get away from the mob more than Gerard, but he's got problems of his own--like the fact that he's a cross-dressing cabaret singer constantly struggling to keep his true identity secret from those who can't be trusted. With the help of a devoted brother, a detective who just might be as trustworthy as he claims, and a wealthy, eccentric Scotsman who features prominently in Gerard's past, Frank and Gerard just might be able to get out and start a new life together, but it's not going to be easy. A tale of gangsters, garter belts, love (hopefully) overcoming all obstacles, and a whole lot of coffee. Part One
Bonus Tracks/Enhanced ContentFanart:Gerard drags himself out of bed, finds his kimono and heads out to the kitchen. Two cups of coffee and a cigarette later, he's feeling vaguely human.
