    Summary

    Steve gets out of the hospital in two days, but just barely. “I’m fine,” he tells Sam, Nurse Eunjung and the phalanx of doctors assigned to make sure Captain America didn’t bleed out and die and get bad PR all over their nice clean hospital. “I have an advanced healing factor. It’s fine. See? I’m standing.”

    “That is not standing,” Sam tells him.

    “You’re bending the IV stand,” Nurse Eunjung adds pointedly. “Let go and sit down, they don’t grow on trees.”

    aka Steve and Bucky's Global Honeymoon Revenge World Tour.

    Silentwalrus' and quiet night are a team made of hilarity and heartbreak. Silentwalrus' is just amazing at writing crack but also writing bleak, heart-rending angst. The parallel journeys of Bucky and Natasha were fascinating from a narrative perspective, and also so sympathetically done.
    And quiet night brings to the lot an incredible ability to switch voices, remain deadpan (how?) through the most cracky bits, be astonishingly emotional where it's needed, and uses special effects & music with astonishingly effective scarcity.
    Amazing work. Highly recommended. On my permanent re-listen list.

    MirandaTam's graceful words and ReenaJenkin's graceful voice are a perfect match of podficcing heaven
    AU where Shmi frees herself and goes with Anakin to the Temple, accepts Yoda as her Trainer, and quietly begins shifting events.
    I can't say enough how beautiful and graceful and badass this Shmi is, and this series is. On my "re-listen often" list

    Summary

    Re-Entry is an alternate universe epic that spans time and possibility. Obi-Wan Kenobi, while still a young Padawan, suffers an injury and wakes up with all of the memories, experience, training, and Force-strength of Old Ben Kenobi. It isn't long before the Jedi discover that Anakin Skywalker, a five-year-old slave from the Outer Rim, has undergone the exact same change. Obi-Wan and Anakin bear the scars of harsh lessons learned; those who love them must learn those lessons quickly, before the mistakes of old are repeated.

    This is series 1 of an ongoing epic, of which Re-entry: Journey of the whills is still a WIP.
    It takes a simple time-travel trope and transforms it into a remarkable tapestry, the Order into a workable organisation (with a palatable reason for the Council having drunk Idiot Water), and the characters into living, flawed, loveable beings. Except Sidious. Fuck Sidious.
    It deserves its fandom reputation and then some. Be warned, it is addictive even through a shaky start, and its word building is truly epic. The number of times I went to check on something and ended up rereading the lot is absurd. I wish that the original movies had half the heart or storytelling of this series.

    Wonderful characterisation. Beautiful dialogue. Delightful nerditry. Writing with heart.

    10/10 will (am) listen(ing) again.
    The series is excellent written, and Opalsong just takes it further as a podfic. This is seriously a comfort listen and on my permanent list of things-to-download-immediately-if-my-backup-fails.
    Very long, characters based but still plotty, beautiful. The pacing, characters and narration are all clear, and I never got confused even though I'm mostly deaf BTW.
    Seriously. Go listen.
