Hello and welcome to bandom_podfic!

Have you ever wanted a particularly scrumptious fic read out to you?
Have you ever wanted to read out a particularly scrumptious fic?
Have you ever wanted to take part in an audio play?
Have you ever thought that you have a perfect Brendon Urie voice, if only the world knew?

Well, thanks to bandom_podfic, now you can have that, now you can do that, and that, and now the world will know. At bandom_podfic, we're looking for bandomers with voice-recording software (all you need is a computer microphone!) to take part in a fledgeling project.

Brainstormed by redstarsatnight/queensheep and justhush, your lovely mods, bandom_podfic is dedicated to bringing the favourite fiction of bandom right to your ears. What we want to do is create audioplays - with a narrator and bandomers reading the lines of each character - of bandom's best fics, for fans to download and enjoy. It will be just like a radioplay, but written and read by you, the fans!

We're currently in the creation stage, but we're taking suggestions if you've got any, and there's a lovely ticky poll for you to fill out.

What do I need to do?
Wait a minute, how can this work?
So, what can I sign up to do?
Who can I go to if I have more questions?
Sign me up!



What do I need to do?


Join the community! Once you've done that, you can sign up to be a reader, a mod, a recruiter or a fic-finder. As we embark on new missions, there will be sign-up posts and schedules posted. All you have to do is keep an eye out for what you want to do!

Wait a minute, how can this work? We're not all going to be able to fit in a recording studio.


That's what google is for, my lovely! Somewhere out there, in the wide cyber yonder, there is a program that will allow us to conference call over the internet. I'm talking about something like Skype, but good quality, and the ability to record conversations. redstarsatnight and justhush haven't found this program yet, but they're going to! (Skype seems to be working pretty well for now, with the Pamela Call Recorder installed. Try it, then email us to get our Skype names!)

So, what can I sign up to do?


Be a reader. You can volunteer to read a part in the audioplay; be Brendon, or Gabe, or Michael Guy. As long as you've got a microphone, or some kind of voice-recording device, and you can take part in the group chats, then you're in!

Be a mod. As you can imagine, this will be a fairly large project with, in some cases, a lot of people to organise. We'll need schedules, and people online to run the group chats, and people to string the scenes together (software like WavePad would probably work for that, and in a pinch, to string the individual pieces of dialogue together, should we not find anything to work as a group chat medium). So sign up to be a mod, and help out!

Be a recruiter. Venture forth into bandom, my friends, and discover new talent. We'll always welcome more people to read parts! You can never have too many people.

Be a fic-finder. We'll need people like you to go out and find fics! That is, of course, once we get everything sorted out with our first project. Let's not get too ambitious!

Who can I go to if I have more questions?


For now, redstarsatnight (also known as queensheep) and justhush can answer your questions. Probably, anyway. And as more people sign up to be mods, and the community gets underway, I'm sure many people will be glad to help!

Sign me up!


You can't imagine how happy we are to hear you say that. Click here and welcome!

Check out our ticky poll here!

We do believe that's all for now, lovely people. Drop us a note if you've got any pressing enquiries. ♥

I'm not sure yet that I'd be able to be a reader, but I'd love to help mod, recruit and find fic. :D I'm so stoked, guys! *dances*

do you have a computer microphone? that's really all you need! even if you can't download the skype/pamela software - which we understand - then most computers come with some sort of voice recording software. you can record your lines and we can edit it in!

it's awesome to have you here, bby! :D ♥

oh, god, i have like, a metric fuckton of fic in my memories that would be amazing to hear out loud. oh yes. unfortunately, i'm not quite sure what else i can do, but i will let you know when i figure it out. ♥
dance magic dance: :Dredstarsatnight on January 12th, 2009 06:37 am (UTC)
i definitely have my eye on a few fics i'd love to hear read, as well. the more mods we get, i think, the more projects we can get running - but that's provided mission one (whatever it ends up being) is a success. mission one is the test run. after that - god, who knows what'll happen? :D

Lol I'm probably crazy in doing this, but I'll help as a mod. I don't have a microphone and I am a horrible reader xD So, modding would probably suffice. Dood, I wish I could read though. hahah. omg. My mind.
dance magic dance: <3redstarsatnight on January 12th, 2009 06:38 am (UTC)
mods are awesome! we'll love the help. if you'd really like to be a reader, microphones that you can plug into your computer run at somewhere between $10-$30, probably found at your nearest electronics store. just sayin' ;)

and a selfish one, i will admit! i can't wait to hear the fics in their finished form. :D
Reversing One-Way Signs [Kristine]: pete + patrickcieluna on January 12th, 2009 10:57 am (UTC)
I definitely want to read but my timezone (GMT +8) makes it slightly difficult to go along with those from the US and Europe. D: My cousin says I can sound like Patrick but I think she's just humoring me, not really sure, haha!



This is somewhat of a stretch but I'd give my first-born if my current fic here might be considered (even being considered's alright ^^;) after you guys finished the fics in your list? *pleads with cookies and muffins*
dance magic dance: fahhhhbulousredstarsatnight on January 12th, 2009 11:04 am (UTC)
i'm gmt+10/11! i'm way out of whack with the us and europe. that's why justhush and i are doing this together: she can handle any issues that come up while i'm asleep, and i can handle it while she's asleep (like she is right now!). so if you want to join in, we'll definitely work out a way for you to read with us. :D plus, we all absolutely love pulling all nighters, right guys? ... right?

once you've finished it, we'll definitely consider it. wips are a little dangerous to commit to, because your real life might interfere with your writing - it's happened before to me, that's for sure! but definitely tell us once you've completed it. :D

I'm afraid I won't be able to be anything more than a Fic Finder, but I'd love to hear these things outloud, omg :D
dance magic dance: (in)sanityredstarsatnight on January 12th, 2009 11:11 am (UTC)
that's totally cool; the more the merrier! and i can't wait to hear them out loud as well. :D
kind of a dick, if that's what elusive meansprovetheworst on January 12th, 2009 04:35 pm (UTC)
why do you need something to do conference calls? why not just have everyone record their parts in audacity or similar (i say audacity because it's free and simple as hell) and then have someone edit the parts together? less likely to get other people's breathing/sounds about the house interfering with the recording, or shitty timing issues or whatever that way, probably.

but i don't know? MAYBE I AM WRONG.
dance magic dance: (in)sanityredstarsatnight on January 13th, 2009 02:46 am (UTC)
wow, can you imagine how much editing that would be, though? because we want to do this like an audioplay, with different people devoted each to a character, we'd have to cut in each individual line with the narration. justhush and i thought it would be easier to do it on conference call.

but of course, if there are too many dramas, we'll revise the plan, and then audacity probably will be the better idea.

If this isn’t a kingdom then I don’t know what is.: chris glassesnotyourshot on January 12th, 2009 10:31 pm (UTC)
i'd lovelovelovelove to be a reader. this is such a great idea, i can't even explain how much i love this.

and if you need help, i can be a mod too, or whatev. :)

Dude! I would LOVE to do this. I would love to be a reader, especially, and I have a microphone, Skype, and Audacity. I am also totally volunteering to be be Michael Guy, as I have a Genuine Australian Accent. Although timezones might be difficult, I have no real problem with loggin on at weird hours.

I'd be happy to try and be a fic finder. I like the idea, but sadly I can't be a reader, since my voice is fairly annoying, but I'm interested and can't wait to see how this turns out.
dance magic dance: thoughtful gorenredstarsatnight on January 13th, 2009 12:24 pm (UTC)
aw, everyone keeps saying their voice is annoying! i sound like i'm twelve and i pick up the accents of people i'm talking to really easily (so i'll be all over the place), if that helps? it probably doesn't. w/e. you're welcome to try, if you want!

but fic-finder is definitely going to be an important job. :D

I've read one of my fics before so I know how difficult it can be. Plus I was trying to do it all in one take. From now on, never again. I would rather do multiple takes and edit them together. D:

But yes. I guess you could say I'm ~experienced. And hopefully can read porn aloud without giggling.
dance magic dance: THE GAMEredstarsatnight on January 14th, 2009 10:22 am (UTC)
ooooooh, all in one take. ouch. i would get so nervous doing that, dude. my mum has the worst habit of just walking into my room and scaring the crap out of me at the precise wrong moment. i'd probably be like "and gerard sucked jon's - MUM! HI. *scrabbles to close all windows & tabs*" /o\

ANY AND ALL EXPERIENCE IS GOOD. and pete wentz doesn't have a sex scene! he has a moping scene, though. or a couple of them. \o/?

Omfg, this is awesome. I am definitely considering signing up as a reader. I don't have a lot of alone time in the house though, which could be problematic.

panic_4_me_babypanic_4_me_baby on January 14th, 2009 10:54 pm (UTC)
I think this is a wonderful idea! Oh, and if you haven't found a program that you can record group chat on, I would try Ventrilo maybe? I'm not exactly sure what you're wanting, but I know that program is free and simple to use, plus it generally has good quality on recorded voice streams.

Good Luck and I can't wait to hear some fic! ^_^
