Beginners Bandom Podfic List

I've talked before about how I got into bandom by way of podfic. Yesterday, fire_juggler saw that I'd finished my MCR Epic Discipline and Punish (coming in at 18 hours long) and decided to dip into bandom.

There are LOTS of bandom primers out there, (frank/gerard, mcr, panic!, general) but I wanted to put together a beginners bandom podfic primer/rec list. I am NOT going to apologise for personal bias - I have not listened to all the bandom podfic in the universe (though I've listened to a lot). Feel free to make your own heading and rec in comments - eg. Ryan/Spencer or gen or Mikey/Gerard. Also, feel free to point out bandom podfic 'essentials' you think I missed. I am going to allow people to add suggestions in comments that I will then add to the post for 24-48 hours depending on responses.

All fics are Frank/Gerard for MCR or Brendon/Spencer for Panic! unless otherwise indicated.


These podfics are good for introduction as they rely on other fandoms:

Outside the Rules by [archiveofourown.org profile] bexless read by [personal profile] klb and shiningartifact
Summary: 1600 words of MCR/AI8 high school au crossover fic where they go LARPing.

Zombies ate your idols (they were delicious) by solar_cat read by [personal profile] pennyplainknits
Summary: In which Gerard Way takes a stand against discrimination, Adam Lambert discovers the importance of dice, Kris Allen is not kidnapped against his will, and the folks at 19E learn to love the stage!(?)gay. Welcome to the Zombies Ate Your Idols tour, 2010!

Life on the Fashion Scene by idyll
Bandom does Project Runway.
Panbandom, gen. With three different versions, by 2naonh3_cl2 here, [personal profile] klb here and reena_jenkins here.

AU is a good way to fall in love with the characters when knowledge of canon is lacking. This is how I did it.

MCR:
Forever Now by passe_simple ready by [personal profile] klb - 9hrs
Summary: Gerard and Mikey have lost their parents, but they've found Brian.
A gen kid fic that OWNS my HEART. It's pre-slash Frank/Gerard.

Conclusions by [archiveofourown.org profile] bexless read by [personal profile] rosekolodny - The one which I call "the roommate AU". This was the first bandom podfic I listened to and it was a complete accident - there was no going back after that - 4hrs.
Summary: Set in 2006. "Smokes," Mikey reads aloud. "Likes dogs in case ever get one. Likes rock music. Likes loud rock music. Is interesting. Does not hog bathroom." He looks at Frank over the top of his glasses. "Dude, it's like you're meant to be."
Due to the audio archive having tech issues I've uploaded it here

Gerard Way's (Vampire) Detective Agency by [personal profile] jjtaylor read by [personal profile] pandarus + Sequel read by [personal profile] pennyplainknits - 12hrs total.
SO much detailed world building, so much AMAZING characterisation.

The Accountant AU by shoemaster read by coriande - 45 min
Gerard is an artist, Frank is an accountant

Hard Candy by ladyfoxxx read by shiningartifact - 33min - possibly the hottest thing ever!
Summary: Frank didn’t realise it was that kind of peepshow

Hey Mr DJ by shoemaster read by [personal profile] argentumlupine - 33min.
Summary: Frank is a late night DJ; Gerard is an avid listener.

Panic!:
(Snowmen Have) Nothing to Hide by sunsetmog read by fleurrochard - 3hrs - Christmas AU. I accidentally listened to this without the first part and I still thought it was awesome. This is another podfic I listened to without ANY knowledge of the characters.

Adventures in Solitude (we thought we lost you) by sunsetmog read by [personal profile] greedy_dancer - 1hr 42 - A sort-of Christmas Carol AU.
I really enjoyed this interesting characterisation of Spencer and the secondary characters of Pete and Gerard are hysterical. The reading knocks this out of the park.

Lego Rainbow by [personal profile] lalejandra read by [personal profile] crazybutsound - 1hr 12.
Summary: Spencer falls hard for his daughter's kindergarten teacher. Fluffy schmoop.

Tell me to Stop by airgiodslv read by [personal profile] klb - 3hr 36 - a currently wip version by [personal profile] crazybutsound here.
Summary: “You have no idea what you’re doing, okay?” Ryan says in exasperation, blowing out a huffy breath. “I’m just saying. I think…I might know a guy."


Panbandom:

The One Where They're All Ducks by sunsetmog read by diane_mckay - 19min - technically gen
Summary: Gerard's feathers brushed Frank's beak. "Quack," Gerard said, for want of something better to say.

[personal profile] bessyboo rec (from the comments on lj):
As Close As It Gets To Home by airgiodslv and read by Group Slashpad (diurnal_lee, [personal profile] parka & kronos999). Brendon/Ryan, Jon/Spencer, Frank/Gerard - 2 hr 55 min.

"This is a MUST for Bandom newbies. It's a telepath AU, where Brendon, Spencer and Ryan are telepaths working for the police department. Gerard is their supervisor (also a telepath), Jon is their shrink, and Frank also works for the police. It's perfect for beginners because, besides being an AU (which lends itself well to introducing characters anyway), it gives you a flavor of the larger bandom cast, but doesn't overwhelm you--it's tightly focused on Panic + Frank & Gerard (with a bit of Mikey). Aside from those six (/seven), it has mentions of Ray, Bob, and William, but doesn't try to shoehorn in a million people. Also it's just an amazing, gorgeous podfic of an incredible fic. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED FOR ANYONE, but especially perfect for beginners."

High School is another good way to go (some are also VERY AU).

MCR:
Vampire's Will Never Hurt You + Sequel by solarcat read by [profile] isweeden - 1hr 40 total.
[Elementary School AU] and [High School AU]
So cute and adorable. Frank is the most AMAZING flailboat ever and Gerard is a vampire (well not really).

A Matter of Logistics by brooklinegirl read by shiningartifact - 43mins
Summary: High school AU. Frank would like to know the logistics of going down on girls. Gerard can help him with that.

This Never Happened by [archiveofourown.org profile] bexless read by [personal profile] klb+ Sequel read by celtic_cookie. Not!fic where Frank moves in with the Ways his senior year of high school.
And thus started my love affair with not!fic as a listening experience.

A Guided Tour of October County by novembersmith read by [personal profile] klb - 47mins.
A loose AU of Ray Bradbury's The Halloween Tree.

Panic!:
If Music be the food of love (I'll have a Veggie Burger) by sunsetmog read by [personal profile] pennyplainknits - 4hr 26
Summary: Oblivious High School Failboats in Love, or, Brendon Urie: The High School Years.
This one gets extra points for a beginner because it follows the process of how the band gets formed. It is read amazingly well and gives a really good sense of how fandom interprets canon.

Lame by reni_days read by roga - 26min
Summary: Spencer has a crush on the twins' piano tutor.

Nicest Thing written and read by sneaky_sena - 1hr 19
Summary: In which Spencer isn't yet on academic probation, but he's close, plus he has to figure out how to keep Brendon from getting evicted and he's pretty sure he'll never be able to look anyone in the eye ever again if they find out that sometimes he uses Craigslist to meet up with guys for sex.

Ten by reni_days and with multiple versions read by [personal profile] pennyplainknits, quintenttsy and xthebackseatx - 20min
Summary: "Are you gay yet, Spencer Smith?"

Good For One byreni_days read by fleurrochard - 16min

Summary: Pitch-black basement sex

Summary: In which Gerard believes a stable, loving relationship is a necessary requirement for the viewing of genitalia.

Mis En Place by [archiveofourown.org profile] coreopsis read by [personal profile] argentumlupine - 30min.
Summary: Between tours, Frank watches too much Food Network. And angsts and has epiphanies and also knits. (Inspired by Frank's tweet about being pissed about not getting Food Network on his cable.)

Maybe Pete was onto Something by impertinence read by draconic_girl - 19min
Summary: Gerard is in love with Frank, but the only person he can tell about it is his hamster.

Sparkle Motion by [archiveofourown.org profile] bexless read by [personal profile] paraka - 47min
Summary: For the next week, Gerard woke up every morning to a new list of Words that Describe how Gerard is In Bed pinned on the fridge. It disappeared after one of them wrote, ‘Sparkle Motion’ because, Bob explained to Gerard, they felt they’d nailed Gerard’s essence with that one.

Panic!:
The Name of this thing is not love by almostblue and reni_days read by [personal profile] pennyplainknits - 2hr 14min
Reader's summary: Brendon Urie: Gay Sex Guru

With Friends Like These ... by iamtheenemy read by silentcs - 18min
Summary: The whole thing fucking sucked, especially because he could clearly remember a time when he didn't want to have sex with Brendon Urie.

[personal profile] bessyboo rec (from the comments on lj):
Read me like no one else (we'll make them so jealous) by foxxcub, read by [personal profile] knight_tracer - Jon/Spencer, Brendon/Ryan, Pete/Patrick.
Summary: Um, Daemons! at the Disco! Or something. Partial AU (basically only AU in that EVERYONE HAS DAEMONS).

"I firmly believe that Daemon!AUs (aside from being amazing and awesome and I LOVE THEM <333) are a great starting point for a fandom, because when chosen well, a character's deamon can tell you SO MUCH about them. And this story is the story of early Panic...BUT WITH DEAMONS! Also it's subtle and gorgeous and omg I'm not sure I'm really coherent about it but YES. HIGHLY recommended as another good starting place."



Extra Credit:
A Light to Burn all Empires by arsenicjade read by h_lunulata - 3hr 21
Frank/Mikey is a personal favourite pairing (see my 18 hour epic) and this fic is brilliant, it's Frank/Mikey/Pete, so is maybe one to bookmark and come back to after you complete the FOB section.

Nightswimming is a wip by [personal profile] greedy_dancer, currently 6hrs.

reni_days has a master list of all her fic that's been recorded, here

Advanced: I'd listen to everything by [personal profile] klb, shiningartifact, [personal profile] pennyplainknits[personal profile] greedy_dancer, [personal profile] crazybutsound and [personal profile] argentumlupine.
I would be remiss if I didn't mention here that I've podficed at least 40 hours of bandom podfic fairly evenly split between MCR and Panic! with 4 podfics from other bands (masterlist)

BONUS

Pete/Patrick:

Summary: In which Pete asks Patrick to record some pick up lines and gets more than he bargained for.

This Seed Burst and Grown by sneaky_sena, read by [personal profile] pennyplainknits - 1hr 8min.
Summary: Nobody's in a band, but Pete and Patrick meet in the Chicago music scene, anyway. Patrick's sixteen and mostly innocent and kind of confused and Pete's older and cooler and fucked up in ways that just make Patrick like him more.

Other Fall Out Boy podfics

Summary: College AU Drumline fic

Emergency Contact by ladyfoxxx read by [personal profile] pennyplainknits - 1 hr 27 min - Pete/Patrick/Mikey
Summary: I need your help. There's something..." Patrick's trailing hand finds its way under Pete's t-shirt and Pete's breath catches in his throat. He swallows hard before continuing. "Something is wrong with Patrick."

Kant's Theory of the Sublime by sinsense read by shiningartifact - 13min - Frank/Pete
Summary: Frank bemoans the fact that the Way brothers are motherfucking cockteases. Gerard is VERY VERY SINCERE. Mikey shrugs. Often. Pete just needs a profound deep dicking. Frank can maybe help him out with that.

Summary: ROBOTS ARE DANGEROUS, the napkin says, with a tiny drawing of what looks like an angry cardboard box. PROTECT YOURSELF.

Self-recs:
I am not very comfortable with self recs, but I thought about this for the snowflake challenge. So consider this my day 1 entry.

I think you've covered basically everything I would have mentioned! (And thank you :D)

Oh, wait, I went through this again and one addition I would make is Falter's You can find out first hand which is Mikey/Alicia bodyswap. With cicadas in the background. I love it!

Also, it breaks my heart that people who're just getting into bandom podfic won't get to hear the amazing work done by a certain podficcer who left the fandom. She'd recorded the 1st part of bexless' Unholy Verse and the amazing, amazing His ruins were beautiful, and they're the podfics that pretty much got me into podfic in the first place... So if people are interested they can contact me in private.

Jan. 17th, 2012 12:55 am (UTC)
I was doing my best to make it a 'beginners' list and NOT a 'all the amazing podifc bandom produces' list. So no podfic referencing music videos or relying too much on non-band characters.

I've never listened to the Mikey/Alicia one /o\ - DLing right the fuck now.

Thanks for commenting, about the thing. :)

lol. Well, it will be strategic downloading (cross-overs and AUs first, generally), but they will all be DL-ed eventually :D
knight_tracer
Jan. 17th, 2012 01:35 am (UTC)
If crossovers are your thing there are more - I think reena_jenkins has done quite a few that aren't on my list - Harry Potter, SGA, Discworld.

Just dropping in, haven't read the post yet (but am headed there now) - there is no such thing as going overboard with podfic, or bandom!

I seriously didn't know a thing about bandom, or the bands, and podfic got me into it. PatD, and MCR are me favs, but I like FOB & Cobra Starship, too. I just didn't know, until bandom podfic got me to listen!

And when I first started reading/listening, I was all about Gerard being the hottest. And all "Mikey Way? Really?" Now? Don't know if it's the dark hair, the LASIK... but man! MikeyWay is hot!!!
knight_tracer
Jan. 17th, 2012 02:18 am (UTC)
Mikey's hotness can be stealthy like that. You've seen him before and you're like 'really?' and then there's the right pic, and suddenly you can't un-see it. I considered giving Mikey his own section.

PatD and MCR have the most content to work from, but I have have so much affection for ALL of them.

ENJOY!

For Old School!Panic ships...
As Close As It Gets To Home, written by airgiodslv and read by Group Slashpad (diurnal_lee, paraka & kronos999). Brendon/Ryan, Jon/Spencer, Frank/Gerard.

This is a MUST for Bandom newbies. It's a telepath AU, where Brendon, Spencer and Ryan are telepaths working for the police department. Gerard is their supervisor (also a telepath), Jon is their shrink, and Frank also works for the police. It's perfect for beginners because, besides being an AU (which lends itself well to introducing characters anyway), it gives you a flavor of the larger bandom cast, but doesn't overwhelm you--it's tightly focused on Panic + Frank & Gerard (with a bit of Mikey). Aside from those six (/seven), it has mentions of Ray, Bob, and William, but doesn't try to shoehorn in a million people. Also it's just an amazing, gorgeous podfic of an incredible fic. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED FOR ANYONE, but especially perfect for beginners.


And I don't give a flying fuck if it was made for me AND this is your post, I'm reccing the shit out of:

Read me like no one else (we'll make them so jealous), written by foxxcub, read by knight_tracer. Jon/Spencer, Brendon/Ryan, Pete/Patrick. Um, Daemons! at the Disco! Or something. Partial AU (basically only AU in that EVERYONE HAS DAEMONS).

I'll add these to the post soon. You're right, very good beginnings.

Thanks for the rec, I remember seeing that you wanted this story and going 'MINE!!!!'. It HAD to be recorded.

Jan. 17th, 2012 08:30 pm (UTC)
I second basically all of these (except for the few I hadn't listened to which I have downloaded). I started a list of things to add but I got a bit carried away and I have so many things I should be doing right now BUT I will return later, hopefully.
knight_tracer
Jan. 19th, 2012 02:04 pm (UTC)
Getting carried away seems to be a theme here, so go ahead. I'm happy that there are some new things even for people who are in bandom podfic fandom. <333

I come bearing recs (part one)! [non MCR/Panic!/FOB]
Heh, definitely. There's just so much fantastic podfic in this fandom! ♥♥♥

Some non MCR/Panic!/FOB podfics:

Being on One Tree Hill Means Never Having to Say You're Sorry by knight_tracer. Alex/Ryland from Cobra Starship, my secret favourite bandom band and my secret favourite Cobra pairing and my secret favourite trope (high school AU!) Basically, this is a podfic of awesome. It's so teenagey and funny and adorable, and I'd rec basically anything knight_tracer's done because her voice is so lovely. (yeah, hi, you said you were uncomfortable with self-reccing SO I AM DOING IT FOR YOU :D)

Speaking of knight_tracer, TAI TV and Other Fictions. Like bessyboo I am biased because she made this for me but I would love it anyway because wow. It's not an AU, but it's only vaguely grounded in canon (you could pretend they're tv stars! They should totally be tv stars) and it's short enough that I'd say it's worth it.

Since We've Got No Place to Go by greedy_dancer. Gabe/William. I have no idea how to describe this except to steal greedy_dancer's description: pregnant fairies in love! It's hilarious and adorable and FAIRIES, PREGNANT FAIRIES IN LOVE, WHAT MORE DO YOU WANT. ♥♥

Finally Hit the Spot by desert_neon. Gabe/William. Another shortish canon fic but you really don't need to know anything about them (just that they are/were both in bands who toured together a lot and William used to hero-worship Gabe something crazy and they kind of love each other a lot). This is angsty and heartachey but it's genuinely one of the most beautiful things I've ever listened to. I have a thing for angst, though, it's terrible.

Table Stakes by pennyplainknits. Gabe/William (nope, I don't have an agenda here, none at all :D) also canonish, but it's bb!Bill (I think he's seventeen?) getting picked up by Gabe after a show. It's really funny, but kind of adorable with it (which is just them all over, which is why you should love them too!) Listen to it for Penny if nothing else, her podfics are always wonderful.

Also, um, a crossover pairing podfic! Never Needed It Now So Much by skoosiepants. Kevin Jonas/Mike Carden, who are my actualfax not even remotely secret favourites. The Jonas Brothers aren't technically in bandom but god, they should be. This is a high school AU where Kevin is a faily dork and Mike is the superhot guy who he accidentally pushes into a pool at their school and then won't stop stalking him. It is hilarious and adorable (clearly, I have a type) and skoosiepants has an amazing accent.

Re: I come bearing recs (part two)! [rare(ish)pairs]
Any Note You Can Reach by pennyplainknits. Brendon/Gerard tourfic! Possibly save this until after you've listened to a lot of other podfics 'cause it's pretty heavy on the tour aspect, but it's so, so worth it.

Sing Ourselves to Sleep by inkjunket. Gerard/Patrick Summer of Like fic; possibly save this until you're more familiar with the fandom. It's one of the first bandom podfics I listened to, and it's wonderful. Kind of bittersweet at times, but also funny and charming and a lovely portrayal of their relationship. Also, I am a little bit in love with inkjunket's voice, it's so soothing and her accent is lovely.

Stars When You Shine You Know How I Feel by pennyplainknits. Patrick/Spencer, college AU. Funny and adorable, Penny is the best thing since sliced bread, you know the drill, except this has the additional amazingness of being about drummers, which, yeah. It's awesome.

by lalejandra. Ryan/Spencer, pretty firmly rooted in canon but you should be able to understand it anyway. I think. It's such a great portrayal of the two of them, as best friends and more than friends, and it's kind of heartbreaking at times but it's also really sweet too, and so real.

Social Activism (Or, How to Make the World a Better Place by Kissing Spencer Smith by opalsong. Gerard/Spencer. SO ADORABLE. I love these two together, and Gerard being ~political will never not be hilarious.

For I Am Legion by inkjunket. Gerard/Mikey, so big warning for incest, though nothing massively explicit. Also a crossover with Lost Souls (which I'm not familiar with, but it's easy enough to understand anyway) and the whole thing has this really eerie, ominous feeling. inkjunket's voice is perfect for the creepiness; it gave me goosebumps to listen to.

The One in Which Frank Wears Socks & Bob Acts on His Queenly Impulses by nanasauras. Bob/Frank. Hilarious, adorable, nanasauras has the most adorable voice, etc. This is one of my favourites; I wish there was more Bob/Frank podfic.

(and I didn't notice before because I am silly, but thank you for the rec! :D)

You rock!!! This is a post made of lots of awesome!!

The internship is going well so far. :-) But where are all the hours in my day? I am not even caught up on all fandom/flist related things...

I am definitely linking a friend to this post!!! Introduce her to the joys of podfic, hopefully :-P

Jan. 19th, 2012 02:06 pm (UTC)
\o/ I love bandom and podfic and this post came together quite naturally (apart from all the coding). There's SO MUCH awesome stuff, both old and new!

Good that your internship is going well 'so far'. We'll still be here when everything settles.

YAY more people! I hope this helps :D

Hey - came across the link to this during a twitter search. I think that this is such a great idea and I was super flattered to see some of my work on the list. I appreciate the inclusion and the recs very much. :)

Anyway, just wanted to say that this list was a really cool idea, and thanks for putting it together! A certain currently-unavailable podfic given to me by podklb was the very first bandom fanwork that I consumed, and it - combined with reading some excellent fic - was definitely what got me into the fandom (for which I am eternally grateful).
knight_tracer
Jan. 19th, 2012 02:10 pm (UTC)
\o/ PODFIC! I wanted to rec EVERYTHING by you. Both you and podklb were big pulls into bandom podfic when I first started getting into it (I think you were the only active podficcers in bandom I was aware of). So, I am happy to pass on the recs so that you can pull more people into the fandom. :)

Is there anything on here you haven't listened to?
aneas
Jan. 19th, 2012 04:13 pm (UTC)
There are three fics I've never listened to before. which is great, of course.

And the recs you gave a few days ago, those readers are amazing, I can't wait to listen their next projects. it's so exciting!

Do you know what you want to do next? I'm going to need time to work on the cover! ;)
knight_tracer
Jan. 19th, 2012 04:29 pm (UTC)
I have a few thing in the near completion zone - brendon/spencer/shane 'Revolution in my Bedroom', and Catholic!Frank/Artist!Gerard. And I really want to start on the first Rugby 'verse story soon. I generally keep my 'Projects I am Working on' section on my master list pretty up to date if you want to see my current plans.

I'm glad my recs worked for you. I was pretty sure you'd like them, but podfic can be a subjective experience.

Have you given any thought to signing up for podficbigbang as an artist? I've signed up, though I still have no idea what I am going to record.
