    Gathering together all the podfics created by rhythmia from various tumblr threads, some original fiction, some just folks round-robin storytelling, in one easy to find place. Also includes the tumblr-based Out of the Auditary works.

    (note the co-creators are for individual works, this series of podfics is created and maintained by rhythmia. Apologies for the wall of tags from every separate podfic that's in here, hopefully you have a tag-hiding/shrinking script running)

    Summary

    The Kaminoan tilts his head with a small smile. As if he’s trying to be indulgent for the Jedi’s sake. “Well yes, you and your fellow Jedi, Master Kenobi. They were made for the Jedi - and since the Jedi serve the Republic. It was implied they would do so too.”

    ‘They were made for the Jedi.’ Obi-Wan thinks in a daze. Clinging to that one sentence and grappling with all the implications buried within it as the Force around him pulses with tension. ‘For...for us? For me?’

    What can that possibly mean?

    ----------------

    Or; the Clones are really, and truly, perfectly made for the Jedi. The real issue is that it seems the Jedi are just as perfectly made for the Clones. This throws a major wrench in the works for the Darkside when the Jedi aren't very willing to let their men die. Not even on the senate's orders.

    The Force as sense memory/synesthesia connecting the clones and their Jedi. I LOVE the Anakin-Obi-Wan dynamic here.

    Summary

    “I was wondering why you didn’t assign your own article about Japanese kabuki motifs in adaptation works,” Nadiya says. “You’re considered the leading scholar on cross-cultural kabuki, aren’t you?”

    It’s a bold question, and people sit up straighter at the sight of Zuko smiling. He’s only done that twice before this semester; one time was when he walked into class on the tail end of a phone call that, according to Isa Dangelo, ended with a ‘Love you.’ It ignited speculation about the person on the other end of the phone call for an month week.

    “Someone else already made a similar argument to me,” Zuko says.

    “Who?” Nadiya asks.

    “My husband.”

    There are multiple audible gasps, but before anyone can ask a follow-up of the professor who’s been scrupulously private thus far, he glances at the watch face on the inside of his wrist. “That’s time,” he says, and there’s no room for argument. “I’ll see you all on Wednesday.”

    —————

    5 times Sokka and Zuko’s students speculate about their spouses, plus the 1 time they finally get some answers.

    Just an amazing modern AU Zukka fic from the perspective of nosy, highly invested, but ultimately caring college kids. The whole series is awesome, but this is my favorite.

    Summary

    Sokka's expression is caught somewhere between determined and pissed off when he says, “I know you think this is your responsibility. But you’re not going to be alone in this. This is why we’re building you a council.”

    “I know,” Zuko says.

    “And the only way you’re going to die having done nothing but sit in meetings is if you let yourself do that. You’re not a bad leader if you take a break now and then.”

    Zuko scowls. “What, so people can then say at least my father wasn’t lazy?”

    Sokka tilts his head. “Don’t you think there’s a difference between laziness and, I don’t know, choosing life and happiness in spite of a terrible dad who tried to take both from you?”

    ----------

    Zuko is sixteen years old when he’s handed a crown, a throne, and a hundred-year ancestral legacy of colonial imperialism. He’s not scared of the work; he’s scared of being consumed by the responsibilities and burdens he’s claimed. What Zuko doesn’t quite realize, yet, is that he’s not alone in this.

    Summary

    If asked on his 18th birthday what he thought he’d be doing in three years, Harry never would have been able to predict that his answer would be “letting Draco Malfoy fuck me senseless over the sinks in the loo of a Muggle bar”.

    This is how the story begins.

    He never thinks to ask how it ends.
