So I reposted this fic from 2008 recently, and since my previous podfic was H/D I wanted to do a different pairing. So here’s a Snarry one, and a much longer one, too! The running time on this podfic is 1:16 (one hour and sixteen minutes)
Summary: Harry is on the verge of becoming a full-fledged Auror when he learns Severus Snape is not dead, but recovering in secret in a wizarding sanitorium.
So, last month one of my fics appeared in the HP Podfic Fest (“A Wizard’s Memory”) and I put up a post on all my various journals asking for suggestions, if I were to start podficcing myself (i.e. reading and recording my own fics in my own voice), which stories should I do?
Here’s one of the ones people asked for. It’s one of my few humorous fics, and I’ve read it aloud at several HP conventions, to the delight of many. So now you can all enjoy it. 😀 Links to both MP3 and m4a versions are below!
Draco the Wonder Ferret, written and narrated by Ravenna C. Tan
Summary: After that disastrously droll Hogwarts reunion party… the story of how Draco Malfoy weaseled his way into Harry Potter’s house.
Warnings: Humor, rather smutty at times.

(Using Firefox I’m able to play the MP3 streaming right in the browser without downloading it. Not sure if that works for everyone…)
m4a: 4.2 megabytes, playing time 16 minutes AAC/m4a Click here — this is the bext format for use with iTunes, as far as I can tell. It sounds slightly better than the MP3 and carries with it the “album artwork.” (Cute ferret photo as shown above…)
Any requests or suggestions on which fic, if any, of mine, I ought to podcast for myself? People always enjoy my readings at HP conventions, I used to be in radio, and I’ve got the equipment, so nothing’s stopping me but the lack of time. However, if there were a lot of votes for a particular fic, I might get off my duff…
Comment with your suggestions at any of my journals! LJ, IJ, DW, and I started a WordPress blog of my own (Ravenna’s Quill) which I can now post to and mirror to all my other journals! (Except JournalFen which seems to be broken…?) Alternately, email me (ravenna_c_tan @ yahoo.com).
My Christmas-themed H/D fic “A Wizard’s Memory” is up at the HP Podfic Fest! The lovely Takola read it, and you can get is as an MP3 or m4b format, or livestream it right inside LJ.
For those who don’t recall or haven’t read the fic, it’s a postwar Harry/Draco at a Christmas party with a bunch of rich Quidditch snobs. It’s probably one of my most romantic stories. Yes, I feel I have to warn for that…
My original summary: NC-17. (5900 words). Harry attends a holiday party which brings up not-so-old memories. Quote: “As if they hadn’t spent some seven years hating each other, seven weeks fucking like weasels, and the two years since ignoring one another.” A gift fic for Charlotteschaos in the HD_holidays exchange.
