I recently recorded a podfic that seems like it would be of interest to this community. It's about Beauty and the Beast:

Reader: [personal profile] eccentric_hat
Fandom: Traditional fairy tales: Beauty and the Beast
Length: 44 minutes

My sincere thanks to [personal profile] tadorna for permission to record this story, based on my all-time favorite fairy tale!
12th-Mar-2012 05:29 pm - A series of Greek mythology drabbles.
ilthit: from Scandinavia and the World (Atlantis rides again)
These were all written for a [community profile] femslash100 drabble cycle challenge. The rest of the cycle (not all of it was mythology-based) are here.

Since this is a drabble dump, even the headers are under the cut!

ein_papier: Gwen by window, black and white (Gwen b/w)
Hi! I joined and started watching this comm, and have a few Greek mythology ficlets; none of them are over PG-13 rating, most are under.

Cassandra-centric (some with Cassandra/Apollo or Aganemnon): Hear All The Sounds, Impenetrable, Thread, and Of Visions and Hope (also, if you read French, For your ears only, Comme du souvenir, and Prolongement (Cassandra/Clytemnestra) ).

Pâris: "... but optimists are happier"

Medea: Numb as Fury

27th-May-2011 04:19 am - fic: The King of Utgard (Norse Mythology)
khilari: (magritte homesickness)
Title: The King of Utgard
Character(s): Thor, Loki
Pantheon(s): Norse
Rating: G
Summary: Thor meets an aspect of Loki he hasn't seen before. A retelling of Thor's Journey to Utgard.

Note: It's contested whether Utgard-Loki was a Jotun aspect of Loki or an unrelated giant. Here I assume the first, and that Loki's addition to this myth as a travelling companion came later. Whether you agree or not I hope you can enjoy the story.

The way to Utgard was among sharp peaks of rock rimed with ice )

storiwr: (Greek Pan)
Title: Tumnus
Character(s): Mr Tumnus/Peter/Edmund/Susan/Lucy
Fandom(s): Narnia
Rating: G
Summary: Mr Tumnus musing on the loss of Lucy after she returns to England.
Disclaimer: I wrote this after listening to the audiobooks for the Narnia series, and felt the need to write something around my favorite character since the series itself has always struck me as not living up to its potential.
