Podfic: The Proposal by zvi (Star Trek Reboot, Spock/Uhuru)

Story: The Proposal
Author: [personal profile] zvi 
Fandom: Star Trek reboot
Pairing: Spock/Uhuru
Rating: not rated - between G and Teen, I'd say
Content notes: no warnings apply
Length: 19 min
zvi's Summary: He's not asking her to marry him
Reader's notes: This is both a triumph (because finally it's off my to-do list!) and deeply embarrassing. Zvi will have totally given up on me as I promised this in an auction, god, over a year ago, but have only recently gotten my podfic mojo back again. So this is appallingly late, but I hope zvi still enjoys it. It's an amazing story - a lovely expansion of canon that explores how their relationship might unfold, with all the complexities of communication you'd expect given an interspecies relationship and Nyota's abilities. Also, I had to learn how to pronounce Vulcan and Arabic to do this one, so I got educated as well :)

Snowflake Challenge Days 6, 7 and 8

Right, catch-up time.

Day 6      In your own space, pimp three comms or challenges and explain why you love them.
[community profile] fanart_recs  - I love checking out all the cool art people recommend, and it's fun to take on a fandom - especially an obscure one or one I don't know all that well - and then have a happy trawling session finding interesting art to rec.
[community profile] yuletart was excellent this year, and a great spur to do original artworks, with some amazing works posted.
[community profile] sgareversebang  is also a favourite challenge and generates some great art and fic - and hopefully we can keep it going this year as well.

Day 7      In your own space, share something non-fannish about yourself. A passion or a hobby or a talent, something that people might not know about you. We are more than just our fandoms.
I once designed and made a non-lethal mousetrap out of a cardboard box, a funnel and a lure made of peanut butter. I was half-crazy with anxiety in the lead-up to a major exam and hated the organisation running the exams so much I had to repress all my anger. So it leaked out in dreams and worries about fires burning down various significant places (when I was away in another city for the exam itself I had to phone home to check the handset hadn't melted) and cue the humane mousetrap (reaction formation, anyone?). The mousetrap was bulky, but it actually worked and had the advantage of trapping the mouse in a traveling container, so I took the offending rodent away in my car and released it several suburbs over. Just as well I passed the damn exam - not sure I'd have survived a resit!

Day 8      In your own space, talk about setting yourself a fannish goal. Big or small, it doesn't matter.
I hereby DECLARE WAR ON PROCRASTINATION! As in the banner below, which I stole from a local DIY blokey equipment hire place. He's got the best tools - a level (for, y'know, balance), and a spade (for digging oneself out of plot holes, or a tunnel to the center of the Earth, whatever), and a HUGE DRILL-TYPE THING. Man, I want one of those (shut up Sigmund!)
Plus, less procrastination might mean I get marginally more sleep and don't torment my betas with ridiculously last minute drafts. It's a lot to hope for, but a girl can dream. (No! right, no dreaming. Doing, I'm all about the doing now)
