Props to Claire for being a trooper. I am glad to report that I did not notice that much of a difference.

I tried my best to post the story links, but there are four stories/authors that I was unsure of. If anyone can help us out, we'd really appreciate it!

And I'd like to say an all-out apology for saying JK Rowling's name wrong in the podcast. I had 20 minutes of sleep the night before and was running on pure sugar. I'm just glad you could understand WHAT I was saying... half the time.

Okay, need to share this:


Omygod, Omygod, Omygod.

Go ahead and read that in a high-pitch girly squeal because that's how I sounded in my head.

Hey, I haven't listened to this yet, but super thanks for mentioning me. I'll check it out tonight. I have you guys subscribed on my Itunes account.

I have be following a piece that is COMPLETELY circled around the music and masterfully done. Don't jump to conclusions: The music used is all classical, but if you're familiar with it (and being an ex-opera singer, I was) it evokes the mood perfectly. You can query the piece on last.fm while you read, and it won't be intrusive at all. The fanfic is called "Music Lessons", the author is Locqua. http://www.fanfiction.net/s/4604826/1/. You can appreciate it just as much if you're not into classical music.

The Good Fight was written by ilsuocantante.

great podcast, I enjoyed the music conversation and Claire I couldn't tell the difference.

Hey guys, I just listened to your podcast for the first time today. Very cool. I'm 29, my mom actually is the one who subscribed to it and told me to tune in. Anyway, there are a couple fics I've read that I love which I don't think have been mentioned. The first is called 'A World Without Sound' by The Romanticidal Edwardian - It's AU and Edward's deaf...it's so good, I actually maybe kinda cried. Some other ones are 'Blind', 'Becoming Whole'. Another one of my favorites is 'False Dawn'...sadly, it's not on fanficion.net anymore. I loved it, it was Bella who was a vampire changed in 1918 and Edward moves to Forks to live with his dad, Charlie, and it would switch POVs back and forth from Edward to Bella. Anyway, I have it saved in Word if you want it. Sorry for the rambling, thanks for the recommendations.

hey guys! thanks for the Accidental Kiss mention!

yet another great episode, and I also caught up on all the past episodes this week. you've provided me with some very entertaining listening--thanks!

oh, and if you want to add it, the M-rated epilogue for the Accidental Kiss is just called The Accidental Kiss Epilogue

Hi Ladies!

I just wanted to drop in and say that it's amazing to me how great each podcast is, and they are truly getting better and better with each episode. You guys never fail to make me laugh, intrigue me, and get me reading stuff I've otherwise passed up. It's invaluable to hear the opinions of those you actually trust to make accurate judgments on quality writing.

This week, I really enjoyed the discussion on one-shots, and I'm eager to read the ones you've mentioned because I agree that they're often overlooked in favor of popular, multi-chaptered stories, and often times, they are some of the most powerful and profound pieces out there...especially if canon is something you're craving. In the midst of what seems like a huge Real Life/ All Human trend in the fandom, I've found that one-shots are a refreshing way to stay content with everything Twilight.

Keep up the amazing work. I'm sure there's times when it feels like a huge load, but you've entertained me for hours, and I'm so happy that you're gaining the recognition you guys deserve. I'll be over to ITunes to review there too. I saw you under the New and Notable. Amazing!

P.S. Danielle, it's got to be great to see that a listener recommended your own fic to you a couple of comments up. :) She kissed butt without even knowing it.

Another great podcast! I have to say, I had a total freak out moment when my name was mentioned - I'm the Dora that emailed you about being in the New & Notable section on iTunes. I think I would have actually been squealing if I wasn't afraid of waking my kids up. Haha. So, now that I've had my 15 seconds of fame, I'm off to read more fanfic. Thanks for doing such an amazing job. This podcast is seriously one of the highlights of my week! :)

LOL @ PassionforTwilight

I was reading Tara's response too and was like waaaiit...that World Without Sound story sounds mighty familiar...

Whoa, wait, I hadn't read the side panel about the hosts, one of you is The Romanticidal Edwardian? Holy crap, didn't know, that's nutty isn't it? Ok well, then, you're awesome, and I plugged your fic without knowing it. I decided to re-read it yesterday. Still love it. I'm 'patiently' waiting for the sequel to be updated ;)

Just finished listening to this episode. So awesome! Actually, all the episodes have been awesome - I've been catching up on them over the last week or so. I'm now subscribed on iTunes, and planning to leave a review - at the moment you don't have any on Australian iTunes yet and it makes me sad...

Anyway, don't have anything to say apart from thanks for making awesome podcasts! I wish I could come up with something more interesting to write, but I guess a little ego-stroking never hurt anyone :-D

Keep up the good work!!

Hi! I just found these and I can't figure out how to download this episode. The direct download link doesn't seem to work, and I can't seem to find it on the itunes page. Does anyone know what I can do?
