Summary: Complicated and expensive.
Reccer Notes: This is such a short podfic, but it makes a big impact. The readers’ different voices work together in a really amazing way to create what amounts to a radio play in a lot of ways, giving each character a unique personality and feel, which, given that the story is Clint considering the scent(s) each person uses and how they match (or don’t match), is perfect. It’s like seven character studies and a team!fic all in one, and it made me laugh out loud about three times in eight minutes. I can tell this one is going straight to my re-listen pile.

Summary: John had a plan, and its name was Get Some Sex. And the capitals were most certainly necessary.
Reccer Notes: I’ve listened to Calliope read a number of stories across several fandoms and thoroughly enjoyed them all. Her clear, expressive delivery is pleasing to the ear, easy to understand, and very engaging. I am especially delighted when she chooses to record a humorous fic like The Plan, because it comes through so clearly that she’s having a great time reading the story, and that means I’m in for a great time, too. Here, have a sample:

I bet you couldn’t help grinning, right? I’ve listened to this numerous times and it never fails to fill me with glee :D
Calliope is, quite simply, a joy to listen to. So what are you waiting for? Go listen!
