Welcome to day 2 of [community profile] pod_aware!

To post a work for [community profile] pod_aware, please include the following in your post, somewhere easily visible to help spread awareness about podfic:

Podfic isn't made in a vacuum and can be heavily influenced by or can rely upon other fanworks to exist. From the fic a podfic is of, to the coverart, to collaborations, podficcers often work with other fans to create their art. Check out pod_aware on DW, LJ or Tumblr to learn more.

To make it easier for you, you can just copy and paste from here:

Wow, this is so interesting!
I for one do lots of podcovers and, yes, I totally noticed that when I work on them after listening to the podfic in question it feels like a more complete experience to me, while if the podficcer says something like "Hey, I'm going to podfic this thing, will someone do me a cover?" of course I'm super excited but if I didn't have a chance to hear their work first and I have to base my cover only on the fic it feels a bit like a more detached project to me and I worry that the resulting cover may be less than perfectly fitting. Not to mention the fact that if there's going to be a podficced version of that fic it's a bit "unfair" to have to physically read the fic when shortly after I could have instead enjoyed that same fic in podfic form. :D - LOL, I'm so spoiled! :D
Though of course I couldn't well ask the podficcer to wait a week for me to do the cover after they finished the podfic. O_o Not to mention the fact that I'd be too excited and impatient to get on with the work to wait anyway.
So, yeah, something to think about...

Ok, I'm writing stuff down whilst I think about it when I'm listening. Liveblogging a podcast, I guess? Haha.

I loved your discussion of cover art. I used to make a lot of graphics when I was first in fandom, so making cover art when I started podficcing felt really natural to me (not that I'm saying that my cover art is amazing or anything, but it's usually easy for me to throw something together that I think looks decent). I once did get a compliment on my cover art and it actually made my day (it was for this cover that I made with a photograph of my own, so that one is kind of special to me on a different level). I think I'm going to make an effort to comment on art as well as podfics going forward, you've inspired me :D

In the spirit of the self-reccing that's happening over at [community profile] podfic_love right now, I wonder if anyone has any cover art that they're particularly proud of?

Re: singing, there are some brilliant podfics with fans singing in Glee fandom. One of them is the outtro to [personal profile] klb's All the Other Ghosts, where [ profile] klainalsex performs Ghosts That We Knew. Let me dig up some links to others, hmm. There's another klb collab where (again) izbit and [ profile] likearumchocolatesouffle sing as Adam and Kurt which is lovely. Aha, An Affair to Remember.

I would love to do meatspace collabs - seriously, if there are any other podficcers who happen to be in Edinburgh or even other parts of the UK, it would be awesome to meet up with you.

[personal profile] analise010 and I made a podcast for Thursday which was meant to be about personal preferences but touches on a lot of this stuff here too, actually. I guess so many of these issues are kind of linked together.
