We are finishing up our discussion “In Care Of” by Fang’s Fawn.

Here is our second discussion of “In Care Of” by Fang’s Fawn. In this episode, we find out that Snape and Harry have like childhoods. Snape is a captive audience and can’t deny what he sees, no matter how much he’d like to. We also find out that Kat is a Hufflepuff, Sue’s wearing very little and Scott had an adventure. PSA, Sue’s Mom is out using a chainsaw, so ignore the noise. Along the way we wonder how old we are, and why does Dudley have a hamster cage. This starts to really heat up just as we are ending, so you may want to read ahead for next time.

Episode 190: Orange People and Blue Hair

Here is our discussion of “On Morphing, Mischief, and Memory ” by Oboe-Wan. This is a short one shot, so we fill out the first 26 minutes talking about what we’ve been doing for the last week. I know, you are saying, “why is that different than any other week?” It’s not, but usually we have a longer podcast so our pre-show talk doesn’t take up half the podcast. In this episode, Tricia sees “orange people”, Scott has a new microphone (Woot!) and Sue has been pulling weeds. In the story we find that Uncle Harry and Mr. George Weasley have given Teddy Lupin a special gift just before he boards the train to Hogwarts for the first time. This is a heartwarming story about Teddy connecting with his father and his father’s friends. Along the way, the hosts decide that we need to read a story about how Fred and George get the map to work for them. And we find One

Special Edition 37: He’s a Guy, Blow Up Dolls and Mary Sue

In this special edition we interview Valandar the author of “A Better Man ”. He listened to all our podcasts and took lots of notes, then he agreed to come on and talk to us. He was a little late to the party so we start out with Tricia, Sue and Scott, just chatting. We hadn’t talked in ages, so we didn’t lack for topics. Sue also invited LupinPatronus, from Mugglenet AudioFictions to come in for a bit. Valandar, who asked us to call him Bill arrived and we started the podcast. We hope you enjoy our interview.

Episode 186: Boobs, Balls and Robes 101

Here is the end of our coverage of “A Better Man ” by Valandar.  It’s been a long trip and toward the end we had many interruptions to our schedule, so although we really enjoyed the fic we were ready to move on. We start out with Sue in the main house and Tricia actually moves from one house to another during the podcast. As the story ends we find the last of the Horcruxes, the Twins invade Borgin and Burkes and there’s a tiger. We find that Vernon truly is a Better Man. We decide that Hagrid must be feeding the tiger, because it got big very fast. We hope you enjoyed our coverage of A Better Man. Tune in next time for a Harry Potter – Star Trek crossover.

Episode 183: Blizzards, Blue Chicks and Spring Fever!

We are enjoying finding out what happens when Vernon is “A Better Man ” in Valandar’s story.  We start with Hagrid as Father Christmas with real elves to help him out. Harry and crew find out how hard it is to sneak your gifts when Albus is around to put spells on the room. Even an invisible cloak doesn’t help.  Kelly drops by, it’s great to have her back.  As usual we talk about the weather, baseball and pets. (Some things never change) We learn that Voldie has a special gift for Harry, that Harry is related to royalty and that Slytherin’s can be played like a chess set. We are just past the half way mark and are looking forward to what happens in the next few chapters. We hope you are reading along with us.

Episode 181: In Honor of the Boston Marathon

This is the second recording of this discussion of “A Better Man ” by Valandar, the first time, Sue recorded the wrong thing. Oops! She blames it all on Tricia. This was also recorded on the day of the Boston Marathon Bombing, we spend the first part of the podcast talking about it and learning about the Marathon itself. We find out that Vernon’s “not going to take it anymore”, that Snape is a changed man and that Ron is still thick. Sue tries out her accents, which we all know she can’t do and Scott really needs a new headset.

Please join us this week on the forum, Potterficforum.com for a Ball that celebrates Poufwa’s 7th Anniversary. The ball will be from Sunday February 9th to Saturday February 15, with our true anniversary on the 13th. We really hope to see you there.

Episode 180: This Podcast is Brought to You by Mike’s!

In our second episode of “A Better Man ” by Valandar; we laugh at Ron’s use of a phone, applaud the pranking war and wonder what’s up with Albus. This is a two woman podcast that starts with Sue and Tricia geeking out over some Star Wars books that Sue saw at a party. Tricia shares her near death experience and says it’s not the first time her brother caused mayhem. We spend a little time learning to play the game “Go.” It’s too hard for us, but Ron would love it. Sue has had a chance to correspond with Valendar and he’d like to tell everyone, he’s a man!!

Episode 176: Fire to Flood and a Kiss

We end our coverage of “My Nephew Harry” by Lucillia, tonight. We have enjoyed all the plot bunnies spawned by this story. In this episode we hear Petunia’s side of things, get a taste of Rita’s quill and find that Vernon steps up. We also have dog and cat cast. We find that Lucillia is a prolific writer in many fandoms.
We hope you enjoyed our podcasts on My Nephew Harry. If you have feedback, please go to the Potterficforum and let us know what you think.

And now a word from the author. “I found the podcasts to be reasonably nice and well done, and didn’t have any problems with the criticism I received. To all of those for whom my story/stories spawn Plot Bunnies, I say take them and run, either that or run from them. As for the number of stories I have going, I don’t have an attention span pro-…Oooh Shiny!”

Episode 174: The Runt to The Boy to Just Harry

We begin Season 6, with Marge taking over the care of both Dudley and Harry after the Dursely’s are in a car accident in “My Nephew Harry” by Lucillia.  We start out with our regular difficulties: Sue’s computer dies, Rachel’s skype won’t work and Tricia is underwater. We find out that Dudley isn’t the angel Marge thought he was and the Runt isn’t quite as bad. Harry is happy to get one meal a day and he loves the puppies. Marge sees magic and comes up with an answer that makes sense for her. There are a few bumps along the way, but overall we really enjoy seeing this side of Marge. We are looking forward to see what’s going to happen when Dumbledore finds out what’s going on. Come back next time to see what happens.

Episode 173: My Mind to Your Mind

We close out Season 5 with this nice little one shot, picked by mslupin. We bring you “Albus Potter and the Sorting Hat” by deenas. In this episode we try to use new technology and Fail. We find that Harry doesn’t really mean what he says, that Ginny plays a big part and Ron is a wet blanket. We get side tracked by the stories we are all reading; take notes you might want to read some too. We find that Ryan is the new Scott, Sue may or may not have control and Tricia still likes to read about vomit. We are all over the place on this one, we blame it on Dementors.

I did have a chance to correspond with the author. This is what she had to say about the podcast: “Oh that was cool! Thanks for the kind words and digging into my fic. You really did all pick up on the fact that I wanted to focus on GINNY and her connection to Albus rather than having Harry be the focus on their child.

As far as pronouncing my name….Dee-nah S. Deena is my first name and S is my last initial.

Like I said before, I have a TON of fic on LiveJournal. There is also stuff on Simply Undeniable, The Quidditch Pitch, Sink Into Your Eyes and FanFiction.Net.

Thanks again for choosing my story!”

We find that Snape is a woman, Sprout is a Mamma Badger and Ron actually grows up. We start the night wondering if Voldie is a virgin, talk about an upcoming “3 Book Set” and think Scott is spying on us. As we close out this series we get a very important tip from Mr. Weasley, “Don’t shag in front of the fireplace.” We have enjoyed our reading and discussion of Vox Corporis, we hope you have too.

Episode 171: Not the Sue, Kat and Deth Show

Last time we left off with Dumbledore’s arrival during Christmas to tell Harry the Dursley’s had been attacked. Tonight we find out what happens next in “Vox Corporis” by MissAnnThropic. Tricia joins the crew tonight with stories about running and the “Gingerbread Man.” It’s not what you think. We start rumors of a baby for Deth, Jen drops by and Sue’s got a fire story. Deth gives Tricia a recap of Vox to bring her up to speed. We find out Harry has a special gift for Hermione, Oliver shows up for Christmas and Draco corners Hermione to his detriment. We are a bunch of giggling teenagers when it comes to sex. We end tonight on another cliff hanger, but it’s the last one, I promise. Also, Sue’s wind chimes are a nice background for the podcast.

In the story we find that Harry and Jake bond at the zoo, Hermione is insane at Christmas and the Grangers have color coded their gifts. We applaud the author for bringing up subjects that we don’t usually see as we earn our explicit tag tonight.

Scott and Sue, both first timers, take on LeakyCon Portland. Here is a recap of our adventures at Leaky. We sit together in front of the computer and talk about what we saw and heard at Leaky and all the wonderful people we got to meet. Scott attended his first Wrock Concerts and got to join MuggleNet’s Audiofictions in a reading. Sue enjoyed meeting Professor Sprout, hearing Star Kid live and meeting up with Poufwanians. And even though Scott ended up with the Leaky flu, we both had a great time and would do it again.

We are half way through our discussion of “Vox Corporis” by MissAnnThropic. We begin with FoodCast, then rec a podcast and talk about beer. We go from Ron HATE to Ron saved the Wizarding World. The Hogwarts jogging team makes an appearance. Harry is a staked goat, Hagrid is the Crocodile Hunter and Dumbledore has stupid ideas. We touch on Trelawney/Snape. There’s even a PSA: Don’t be stupid.

Episode 168: It’s Hippo Harry and Horse Mione!

In this episode we continue our coverage of “Vox Corporis” by MissAnnThropic by exploring chapters 23 to 30. Kat is podcasting with a fever, Sue’s chair is being squeaky and Deth brought his birds along. We find out that Dumbledore has a unique Animagus, Ginny is a Valley Girl and Ron reads canon. We think the potions book is well played. We wonder about Animagus nicknames and try to figure out what McGonagall would be called. Forum members can earn points by telling Deth what Prefects do in canon. We are about half way through with the story and are excited to see what is going to happen next. Will Ron continue to be a prat? Only time will tell.

Ep. 167: Bob Derails the Podcast – Four Times and Tells a Sex Joke

Tonight we continue our discussion of “Vox Corporis” by MissAnnThropic. In this episode, Bob brings his sexy voice, Deth brings his birds and Kat brings baseball. We remember old friends, find out where Sue will take you when you visit and wonder if Melinda wrote this story. There be “tightening of the jeans.” We do actually discuss the fic and wonder about pools in London, what happens to Ron and when did Harry become an Iron Chef? If you listen closely you might hear POVW being born….

Episode 166: Magic, Boats 101 and $20!

Join us for our first Harry/Hermione fic with “Vox Corporis” by MissAnnThropic.   In this episode we see what could have happened after the graveyard scene in book 4; Harry’s in shock and Hermione is the only one who really comforts him.  We pull Kat and PS in at the last minute, so they read 11 chapters in 20 minutes.  We start off talking about boat boats, then Londo Mollari shows up to introduce the podcast.  We find out Kat’s true feelings about Draco, what Sue wears to bed and that PS needs a refresher on Nursery Rhymes.  We invoke Mike and ask, “what type of squirrel would you be?”  Along the way Ron ejaculates and Hermione has a pregnant moment. This episode earns our explicit tag, so be warned.  We wish to thank Deth for recommending this story for us, it’s the one that turned Ryan into a Harmonian.

Episode 165: Don’t Do Anything Stupid!

We end our series on “A Little More Time” by Pallas this week. In this episode Tricia is mad and she’s not afraid to use adult words to show it. In fact we all use a few adult words as we talk about Remus and Tonks and the lawyers. You know how you felt about Umbridge? That’s how we feel about some of the characters in this story. We feel that Harry is stupid, tawyers are bad and where’s the Chief Warlock? We all like how it ends with carrot cake.

Episode 164: Zorses, Zonkeys and Ziraffes, Oh My!!

We are continuing our journey with Teddy as he brings his parents back from the dead and finds out what the consequences of that action may be, in “A Little More Time” by Pallas. In this episode we find out about Tricia’s chafing, Scott’s trip and that Deth is, well, you’ll hear. We have headset problems. We decide that string vest robes are WRONG and animals will EAT you. Sue gives us a tip for cleaning carpet and votes for Hat to be Chief Warlock of the Wiz. Oh, and Tricia once again shares a little too much as she explains breast feeding.

Episode 163: We Are a Day Late, Can You Guess Why?

Here is our second installment of “A Little More Time” by Pallas. Tonight we are joined by the Slytherins and have a Slyther/Puff podcast until Kelly joins us. We do have to warn you that Tricia gives us a lot of TMI as she talks about having children, breast feeding and birth control. Deth drops the F-Bomb. We get a little, OK a lot, off topic near the end as we are distracted by videos.

Episode 162: Fudge Hunting, Plot Bunnies and Stolen Relics

We are beginning an new story today. Teddy goes back in time to rescue his parents in “A Little More Time” by Pallas. We start the evening learning about Deth’s new keyboard, in typing 101. Then we find out that Tricia is a Daddy’s girl and Sue listens to Wait Wait Don’t Tell Me. Kelly joins us part way through and distracts us with a picture. You will find it linked below, but you may want to wait until we talk about it to look, so you don’t spoil the surprise. We think this is going to be a fun story and can’t wait to see what’s going to happen.

Episode 161: RIP Davy Jones, Dog Food and We Have One Hour!

Happy Valentine’s Day, Poufwa!! Tonight we bring you “Reptilian Complex” by Your Valensi. It’s a sweet story of Ron and Hermione as newly weds. In fact it’s so sweet, it comes with a diabetic warning. This episode is brought to you by an all girl cast; in it we echo, are snarky and learn new swear words. Tricia has charlie horses and is roller-pinning her legs throughout the podcast. Scarlett is getting ready for a play, Kelly does Tech Time and Sue’s house is spotted. Oh, and we promise Tricia she can go to bed in “one hour.” Despite our snark, this is a nice story that we thought would be a great Valentine’s Day special, so we hope you enjoy it. Stay tuned at the end for a special Valentine’s Masterfic from Shoebox Project.

Episode 160: Knitting to Princess Bride to Vomit

This is our last episode on “Shifts” by Fern Withy. Please stay tuned at the end for an author interview that covers some of our questions and many off topic interludes. In this episode we have an all girl cast as Scott is kidnapped to do the Castle podcast for the “Poufwa Exchange.” Tricia deals with the school nurse over soccer balls, OG has sinus trouble and Kelly has a few words for Kreacher. We think Sirius is a good “bad dog” and that Remus should have a life. We wonder which team has more Black supporters and decide it’s about tied if we include Draco. During the author interview we learn about the hawk that tried to eat one of Sue’s chickens. We also discuss book series we think others should read and talk about football. We really enjoyed the Shifts universe and are sad to be leaving it behind.

Episode 159: The One Where We Break Dethryl!!

Tonight we bring you the fifth episode of “Shifts” by Fern Withy. This episode is brought to you by Dyson Vacuums, Kat’s Beer and Tiger Balm. Kat and Dethryl were suppose to record a Poufwa Exchange, but Ryan went on a date instead of being there to record so we pull them into our podcast instead. Tricia is AWOL, but checks in with a story to rival a Jen Story. She has been deemed a weapon of mass destruction. Meanwhile in the fic, we get to see what really happened to Dudley that fated night in the bar. We also get to see Remus and Tonks have a romance and Dudley demand a memory charm. Oh, and we might break Dethryl a few times. We recommend you keep your brain bleach handy for this episode.

Tonight we bring you our forth installment of “Shifts” by Fern Withy. In this episode we have a guest host who is afraid he might fall asleep on the podcast. Don’t laugh, it’s happened before. Sue is a bad Hufflepuff, Scott takes a trip and Tricia sounds like a man. We also discuss Mr. Rogers, Cannonball Run and OPS – old people sex. Oh and somewhere along the way we talk about Shifts. Remus is a ladies man, Dudley is a person and the twins make Frosty the Snowman’s hat. And wouldn’t you know, mpreg rears it’s ugly head. We hope you enjoy the show. Tune in next time for Tricia’s, Jen-like, Tiger Balm story.

In this episode, Sue, Scott and Kat got together to talk about our jobs and what’s going on in our lives right now. Moments after we end the call, Tricia comes online, so we call her and talk another hour. Then, since it’s the holidays and you can never get enough Christmas music, I add some of Poufwa’s greatest hits. Enjoy the madness.

We, here at Poufwa, want to wish all our listeners a wonderful holiday season. Happy Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Happy Kawanzaa, Happy Whatever you Celebrate. Have an awesome year.

Episode 157: Murder, Hygiene and Snot!

Here is our third installment of “Shifts” by Fern Withy. In this episode we take almost 30 minutes to even get to the story and go off topic immediately after introducing ourselves. We learn about the Hood to Coast marathon, Zack showers and have a lesson in Ram 101. Sue gushes over a new podcast, called GalleryCast, she’s been listening to them for a week straight and may be a little obsessed. Along the way we wonder if Remus sleeps in the nude, throw in a little mpreg and talk about a pie-bald man. BTW Fern says, “Yes, Sanjiv has a little secret about his delicate condition. ;p” Also in this episode we bring you allergies, illness and SNOT! Sorry. We also include an important PSA, “Always ask first before touching a pregnant lady’s belly.” Really, we mean it.

Episode 156: On Topic With Notes and Everything!!

A day earlier than expected as a Thanksgiving gift, here is our second episode on Fern Withy’s “Shifts.” In this episode we find out that the Evans clan had a temper, Andi and Ted aren’t sure about Tonks/Remus and Umbridge is taking over. We also find that Deth shared his illness with PS and Kelly, Sue’s in a rolling chair and Scott’s audacity hates his skype. Despite all of that, we make it through our scheduled chapters tonight. As always with Poufwa, please remember the views expressed by the hosts are the hosts and not Potterficweekly’s. Sit back, relax and enjoy our on topic with notes and everything discussion of Shifts. We had a great time and hope you do too.

For those of our listeners who celebrate Thanksgiving, we hope you are listening to this from a turkey stupor and that you had a great time with friends and family. For those who don’t celebrate, we wish you a wonderful day too.

Sit back, take a deep breath and get ready for a new story from Potterficweekly.  We are revisiting an author from last season, Fern Withy for mslupin who loves the story “Shifts.” In this episode we follow Remus and Dora as they protect Dudley from possible danger. Along the way we find out Sue has power, Scott’s Head of House and OG is lost. We find out that snow is a swear word, the Polar Bear jump isn’t nude and knitting isn’t a quiet activity. We also get a history lesson and learn about plants. Tricia isn’t sure how to pronounce our author’s name and Sue makes Deth jokes. Welcome to PuffCast, at least at the start.

Special Episode 34: Anne is Evil, Bald Draco and Phil threatens to Sing

Last week, hosts and guest hosts sat down to talk with Anne B. Walsh about her original work, Dangerverse and Be Careful. We had such long podcasts on the series, Anne didn’t have a chance to listen to all of them, but she does have a few comments on them. We find it’s fun to be able to ask her questions and get an answer that makes sense. She tells us that we are smarter than we think and that the original podcasters on Dangerverse and the podcasters on Be Careful have a wild theory that’s actually right. Who knew we were so on top of things? Anne has her sister and roommate pop in and there’s an annoying buzzing, I think it’s a really big fly. In the meantime, Phil is convinced the butterbeer in the UK is much better than ours, there are pets everywhere and we play with words. We hope you enjoy our discussion, we sure did.

Episode 154: Be Careful… What Fanfiction You Write

Here is our fifth(!) marathon episode of, “Be Careful” by Anne B. Walsh.

While Sue is finally well again, Kat has been spinning out as she enters the last stint of life as she knows it in Undergraduate school. She’s hilarious when she’s not on sleep, ladies and gentlemen, so we decided to give you a double-episode of it!

This episode was recorded almost a year ago, so we’re talking about Christmas and Finals and presents. We hope you’ve enjoyed the coverage of Be Careful (and we reiterate that if you haven’t, don’t worry, we’re starting Shifts by FernWithy in two weeks) – we’ve certainly enjoyed covering it, even though it took up three long months. We will also be releasing an author interview with Anne Walsh herself in the next couple weeks.

We remind you that Sue’s email address has changed to Sue@Poufwa.com.

If you enjoy the antics of PFW, you might want to check out our new podcast PointOfViewWeekly. We remind you that Point of View Weekly is now recorded 8:30 EST and is available on iTunes! We’d love to have you stop by and join in the fun.

Sue literally killed Kat making her edit these, but she still wishes you all enjoy it, show notes or not – she didn’t write any because she’s dead (which is code for, instead of making show notes, the editor decided watching reruns of Cold Case was more important).

Episode 153: She shells, squishy moments, and the idiot ball of doom

Here is our fourth marathon episode of, “Be Careful” by Anne B. Walsh. It’s been a long journey, but we refuse to stop this ride! Through the deep discussion of plot holes of canon and the much-debated trace, we here at Poufwa are plowing through the next set of chapters with startling on-topic discussion. Moony is singing songs, Kat is talking about math and computer science, Scott’s doing impressions, and Sue is driving this podcast while still sick. Kudos to Sue!

Episode 152: Kat’s high, Baby Dementors, and Sam Gamgee’s got Voldemort

Here is our third marathon episode of, “Be Careful” by Anne B. Walsh. For the first half of this episode, Sue apparently has the cold that would not end and Kat’s got a fever of 101.8 and is operating on no sleep because it’s midterms, but we are determined to truck through the chapters regardless! During the second half we add Scott, Sue is still sick, and we all fear Scarlett’s brain. We still express our love for Dragon Charlie and are very concerned about what’s underneath Draco’s robes.

Episode 151: Put the Kettle On, Poufwa Meet Up and It’s Draco Malfoy!

Here is our second marathon episode of, “Be Careful” by Anne B. Walsh. We’d like to introduce Phil, no not that Phil, this one sounds like Harry Potter himself, but he’s apparently using Scott’s old internet connection. We needed duct tape to keep him on the call. We also find out that Kat doesn’t like Draco Malfoy, Sue has a tractor and Moony likes musicals. We all love Dragon Charlie! We have questions we’d like to ask Anne, if we get to do an interview. Toward the end, the girls scare Scott away and as always there are pets that come and go through the recording.

Episode 150:  We think Tricia is HOT, Baseball and it’s our 150th Episode!!

Today we are celebrating our 150th episode with an epic fic, “Be Careful” by Anne B. Walsh.  We started with the lofty plan to talk about 22 chapters at a time, only to find out that we were aiming too high.  Not to worry, we decided to record over two nights and glue the podcasts together, which works if you ignore people coming and going from about half way through the episode.  In true Poufwa fashion we talk about fangirls, baseball, running, baseball, pets and baseball…did I mention baseball?  Apparently it was a big baseball night.   We also talk about Draco Malfoy, the story is about him after all.  He is about to embark on a grand adventure and he is taking us with him, we just have two words for him…Be Careful. 

We would also like to thank ChrisCMNate, Loswen, Kat and Phil for giving us a “shout out” for our 150th! 

If you enjoy the antics of PFW, you might want to check out our new podcast PointOfViewWeekly.    We record live Thursday evenings at 8 EST, you can find us at pointofviewweekly.com  We are also on iTunes.  We’d love to have you stop by and join in the fun.

There were too many show notes to list.

Episode 149: Scarlett at College, No Animals were Harmed….And Ryan!

Tonight is a little one shot about Amelia Bones, it’s “Your Life Doesn’t Flash Before Your Eyes” by xsilverxlightx.   The first half of this podcast is dedicated to cats, fishing, roommates and super stores.  We get Ryan out of retirement and off the golf course.  He entertains us with stories of his new cats…yes we know he’s had them over a year now.  Scarlett joins us in one of her rare appearances to tell us about her new roommate and all the Poufwa troubles that have come her way since moving to collage.   We think her new roommate should be one of us and she’s a Puff too.  Kat tells us her secret obsession with weddings and talks Scott into acting one out for her. And Sue’s mom runs over a chicken.

Episode 148: Choices, Still No Name and The Pittsburghers!!

This is our last episode on the Harry Potter series by Bear. This one is “Harry Potter: Revelation“. We encourage you to finish the series on your own if you’ve enjoyed our coverage of it. (I just checked and the last one, Sacrifice, has not been finished yet). In this episode, Sue loves Trica and OG, Tricia goes to the dark side and brings cookies and OG has a plot bunny. We also find that Peter may be smarter than anyone gives him credit for, Boggarts get tortured and JKR has met a Time Lord at some point in her life. Oh and the Pittsburgher’s take over the podcast, then fight. Really, we don’t plan these things, they just happen when no one is looking. Part way through, we are interrupted by Twilight. I’m telling you we don’t make this stuff up.

Here is our second installment of the Harry Potter series by Bear. In this one, “Harry Potter: Connections“, we watch as Adam and Ginny work through the aftermath of the Chamber of Secrets and follow Remus as he traces Adam’s steps to see who this mystery student really is. Along the way, we get lost talking about weddings, fics, lakes, shoes and cats and that’s just in the first 19 minutes. Sue squees some more about the JK Rowling Room where she’s going to spend the night. You can see pictures of that stay here. Kelly joins the Hufflepuff crew a little late, but we are happy to have her along. We find that the hosts like to read ahead, giggle at Pouwanian quotes in canon and hate laundry.

We also find out that Sue is living with boys, Tricia has a work husband, Scott was pre-Poufwanian, Kat’s a baseball fan and Kelly can do math.

Episode 144: Baseball, Communicable Diseases and Snake Bombs!

In our third episode on “This Time Around,” by Disneydoll0424, we learn about the evil apostrophe, traitors and the muggle way. We are pleased with the use of the word “scathed.” This week we change it up a bit and use Star Wars references, with maybe a little Star Trek thrown in for good measure. In fact, we all “have a bad feeling” about this. And at the end we encourage everyone not to “drink the water.”

Near the end, Kat mentions that the author, Disneydoll0424, may have left the fandom, but Sue has found her and even has some author comments for the last podcast in this series.

She also falls in love with one of the Marauders and in like with another. We discuss “the grandfather paradox”, “take me to your leader” and “that special place.”
We really like the characterization of Peter in this, but we don’t like Peter at all. We have some of our usual off topic banter, but try really hard to keep to the story. Also in this episode Sue has a squeaky chair, Kelly doesn’t have power and Kat thinks “that’s bull!”

Episode 139: Pee Magic, SquirrelMort and PS is Intoxicated

Wow, we are starting our fifth season. It seems like just yesterday Melindaleo encouraged me to listen to a podcast she was on and now I’m one of the hosts. It boggles the mind. But now I’m “off topic” so I’ll “focus” and come back to the fic in question. Today we are covering “A Conspiracy of Cartographers – In the Beginning” by pica scribit. This is a Marauder fic, which makes some of us happy. We find that Greyback is a child molester, Remus is the invisible boy and Molly is saucy. There are plot bunnies, broom lessons and magical weed. And we have a drinking game, but we don’t tell you when to “take a shot” – that’s our little secret.

Special Edition 32: Happy Birthday Poufwa; Here’s The Longest Recording We’ve Ever Done

Tonight, PFW and PE collide to discuss what makes bad fanfiction. This is not to single out anyone’s OTP and call it bad, but rather to discuss what makes bad!fic of that pairing. We actually stay away from specific pairings for the most part and focus on themes and cliches. Total recording time for this session was 5 hours and 45 minutes.
Dethryl does the introduction without the critical “And”, yet we somehow survive. PS is broadcasting from inside a tea kettle. Rena’s siblings try to get on the call. Kat does something else that’s funny. Deth and Kat are drinking wine while PS is medicated. Rena’s the sober one and scared of these crazy people on the line with her. She runs away about halfway through.
Topics:
* Non-canon nicknames like Mione, Siri, Sevy, Lucky, and so on, as well as the stupidity of “Harry” being a nickname.
* Ron being Ron.
* Peter is always evil.
* AU do’s and don’ts.
* Next-Gen is seldom more than a clone of our heroes and villains.
* Fanfiction of fanfiction.
* Slash warnings and Het warnings. Explosions, chases, and action warnings.
* Mary Sues.
* Dragging external stuff into HP when it blatantly contradicts canon.
* Martial arts.
* Shopping.
* Localized speech patterns and Briticisms.
* Unhealthy fascination with Muggle stuff.
* Snape and house points.
* Houses other than Slytherin are also evil.
* Harry adoption.
* Crossovers.
* Cassie Claire.

Startling Revelations:
* Kat has kids.
* Dethryl has written a fic called They Shook Hands.
* PS likes slash.

Episode 138: Don’t Give Up – Light Damn It and Things That Make Us Say ‘Awwww… Puke’

The Potterficweekly hosts are happy and a little sad to be bringing you the last episode of Season 4 with “Away From The Sun” by cibjasfad. Harry, AKA Joe, is going home and there are a lot of red haired people waiting to greet him. He finds out that he’s welcome no matter what name he goes by. Tricia is happy to find that fluff makes her want to puke, so we get more vomit even if Andi hasn’t put it in the story. Sue’s neighbor shows up unexpectedly and she has to leave for a few minutes while the others chat and Tricia thinks about bed time. We have a lot of love for Kingsley, Neville and Molly. And the animals take over once again.

Episode 134: Bare Feet, Not HARRY! and Kill The Wall

Kelly and Sue are really excited to bring you “Away From The Sun” by cibjasfad.  The other hosts jump on the band wagon pretty quick, PS read the entire story in just two sittings, she couldn’t put it down.  This was recorded well over a year ago and it’s dated as we talk about the DH1 trailer and our predictions on where it’s going to split.  Also in this long ago episode we find out about Ryan and Jen’s adventure on Melinda’s boat.  I know it’s old stuff, but it’s classic, I had to leave it in.  And speaking of Melinda, we’d really like her to read this story.  If you haven’t read this yet, we strongly recommend you read it before listening to us or you’ll be spoiled and you really don’t want to have that happen.  Oh and we strongly recommend you heed the tissue warning.

PeonCast: Four Hufflepuffs and a Wacky Ginger

In this special edition of PeonCast we discuss the “It’s Not Over Yet” challenge from PFW. Scarlett wasn’t ready for HP to be over as the last movie came out, so she organized a writing challenge. Each entry was posted anonymously and forum members were able to read and comment on each story. After everyone had time to read them, we put up a poll and the top ficlet and drabble won the honor to be discussed by the Poufwa podcasters. Join us as we talk to Scarlett and Sue about the fics they wrote. We drag Aaron in without notice and expect him to make sense. Scarlett’s roomie crashes the podcast and we give love to several authors. You can read all the stories on www.potterficforum.com if you’ve missed them.

We find out that Kelly and Sue are old and it was Tricia’s birthday. We say that we’ll release this episode for her half birthday, but alas, she’s already past her next years birthday. Yes, we are that late getting this out. A Very Potter Sequel spoilers abound, but it’s been a year so spoiler time is up. We have a good time with this and hope you will too.

Episode 127: BreathCast, Brain Bleach and then there’s Maude


In this episode we talk about “Secrets” by our very own Jules. We have two, well three if you count Darth, special guests. Even though our two special guests are old hands, we still have our troubles as we find that someone is breathing a little too much, Tricia is attacked by the Loch Ness Monster and Sue’s lost control of the podcast. We also revisit our discussion of “who’s on top” from our PeonCast days. There is a lot of love and laughter in this one, not to mention the breathing, lots and lots of breathing. And did we mention the “in laws?”

Jules has also written “Sisters” This wasn’t really written to go along with Secrets, but it does, so give it a read too.

Episode 126: Investigations, Interviews, Hostile Hufflepuffs, and Hell freezes over in Pittsburgh.


Today in PuffCast, we finish up our discussion of “Teddy Lupin and the Forest Guard” by FernWithy. We revisit explosive topics such as Yellowstone and Susan Bones, reference both Star Trek and the Muppets at once, and there’s juuust a little bit of sports.  Tricia and OG are FANGIRLS, Scott has a visiting ghost and Sue is distracted by “The Talk.”  We do talk about the last chapters of Teddy Lupin, where we learn about the Charmer and what’s in that interesting ivy in the forest.  As we near the final chapter, our discussion becomes increasingly focused and incisive–and then Kelly joins us, and the tangents ride forth once more.

Then, Fernwithy joins us for an interview, once we overcome our technical difficulties.  Interesting discussion ensues, which includes further fangirling, forum promotion, and Oliversgal’s thoughts on the redemption of House Scrimgeour.

We encourage you to check out more of Fern’s stories “here.”  Tricia particularly recommends Shifts and Shades, and Teddy’s own story continues in alternating years.  Not to mention Albus Potter and the horde of Hermiones.

  • Honoria Higgs, mini-Rita
  • Various sorts of letters
  • Maply shenanigans

PFW Rewind: Special Edition #2 – End of Potter Survival Guide

banner.jpg

While your Poufwa hosts are busy recording their thoughts on Deathly Hallows, Part 2 at this very moment, PotterFicWeekly is pleased to look back and re-release our second Special Edition Podcast: The End of Potter Survival Guide.

First released on July 28, 2007 in response to the release of the final novel, Poufwa prepared an audio triage kit for our friends and families outside the fandom who didn’t realize that the story didn’t have to end. As you come across these lost souls on their way to grief counseling in the next few days, we’d like to encourage you to share Poufwa and the fandom with them, starting with this classic episode.

And whether you’ve never been, or a long lost Poufwanian, we’d like to invite everyone to the PotterFicWeekly forum located at potterficforum dot com. Long after we run out of fan fiction, the hosts and listeners of Poufwa will still be very much involved in each other’s lives, and we’re always looking to expand the family.

Back to the past.

Join Ryan, Jen, LadyChi, and INTRODUCING Spellcast’s Robert Standring as we offer a brief introduction to the world of Harry Potter fan fiction, including our best recommendations for those who may never have considered fan fiction, but are now desperate for more story. We encourage you to recommend this episode to fellow Harry Potter fans as a way to bring them into the fandom.

To make the transition easier, this will the our shortest episode of PotterFicWeekly yet. But not to disappoint our regular listeners, we all take a sex quiz.

Happy listening!

Do the best you can for as long as you can. Remember that all may yet be well. Don't be afraid.

Episode 125: Harry, Son of Prongs; Teddy, Son of Moony.


This is our third episode dedicated to “Teddy Lupin and the Forest Guard” by FernWithy. In it we find out that Oliversgal is a Mary Sue and a fan girl, Aaron’s true feelings for Robert and that Sue has killer chickens. Oliversgal, has glasses that insist on hitting the microphone as she talks and Aaron is typing throughout, but he doesn’t fall asleep. Scott’s neighbors have strange mowing habits, while Kelly’s mute button almost works. We forget we aren’t Peons anymore and bring some of our favorite Peon moments back for all to enjoy.

We have a some burning questions: What house is Jo in? What do you do for Christmas? and Who do you feed to a dementor?

Sue pulled out most of her hair while editing this and it’s still a little rough, so hang in there.

Also in this episode:
~We discuss our first time…
~Sue learned from Ryan
~Sue can’t do math
~Aaron wants Muggles and Minions

Special Episode 28: The Peon’s Ride Again!

Special Edition 28 of PotterFicWeekly has been released!

In this flash-from-the-past, Poufwa reviews But I Want to be a Weasley!” By Deadwoodpecker. We recorded it on Kayla’s birthday two years ago and we thought it would be fun to release it on her half year birthday. At least that was the plan, until the server wouldn’t take the password. Typical Poufwa. Ryan stepped in and saved the day, so we are getting this out on her half birthday by the skin of our teeth. Kayla we hope you have a great half birthday.

Oh and we talk about Harry Potter and the Weasleys too.

Episode 124 Heather’s having an identity crisis, protect your bum 101, and cat tricks


In this our second installment of “Teddy Lupin and the Forest Guard” by FernWithy, we discuss chapters 6 through 10, even though Sue thinks it should be 11. She can’t read her own notes. We have two Peons who need a couple of takes to get us going, then aren’t sure what name they should use. Later while we are exploring the chapter we find out Winky’s in charge, Professor Longbottom is fair and that James is a Teddy seeking missile. And at some point there might be Muppets.

Episode 123: The Milkman in the Parlor with the Candlestick


In this Episode we begin our journey with “Teddy Lupin and the Forest Guard” by FernWithy. We start out in a VW Bug and end up on a “Mission from God” and along the way we discuss pet names, experimental wands and marching band for ghosts. The Smeltings sticker makes us wonder and “Muggles and Minions” tempt us to stop in the Hufflepuff common room for a game. Once again, Kelly is the odd Ravenclaw out, but we are Puffs, we love her anyway. Oh, and Oliversgal never did get her dog.

And that’s just the highlights, we also discuss:

~Driving 101

We also find out that Scott’s a duck, Sue’s in a squeaky chair and Kelly isn’t really here. Lassie and mslupin were tricked into reading this fic and keep thinking it’s going to be a Marauder’s story, but no matter how hard they try they just can’t make it so.

Special Edition 27 – Turn Around Ryan, Turn Around

Special Edition 27, Poufwa’s commentary on Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows has been released! A bunch of women and Ryan got together to watch a movie. But Poufwa isn’t Poufwa without it’s own set of problems. This episode, Ryan was sharing his microphone with two of them. Expect computer dragging, Snape-loving, sobbing over elf-sized corpses… and then we started the movie. Strap yourselves in and hold on tight – you’ll laugh, you’ll cry, and you’ll feel utterly Poufwanian doing it.

Episode 121 – Kat’s wearing her grumpy pants, Tricia’s stuck in the dryer, and Sue’s the herbology professor

Episode 121 has now been released!

In this episode we go back to the world of the Founders, as we discuss Moon and Stone by Andrea13 and Persephone_Kore. Well some of us do, some think we are reading a Marauder’s fic. This is the fic PS found after reading Tale of a Time Long Gone and being challenged by Ryan to find something as good. PS says this one is better.

Lassie and Tricia aren’t convinced and Lassie has this to say, “she’s really grumpy on this podcast – If she remembers correctly it was because she was stuck in the suburbs for 10 days- she apologizes and amends that she remembers it was a very good fic.”

Also in this:

Salazar is a werewolf, and is having a bad day
Helga the Cheerful Hufflepuff and Salazar the Snarky Slytherin
Rowena/Godric and Helga’s the third wheel
Lassie doesn’t like that the founders get paired up together
Tricia is stuck in the dryer because of her shiny new computer.
Werewolf-sized Tupperware
There’s a line of people who want to hit Salazar over the head
Poufwa begins, they’re all mad

Special Edition 26 – Four Excited Poufwanians walked into an Exhibition Exposition

Special Edition 26 of PotterFicWeekly has been released!

Tonight, we discuss the experience that is Harry Potter: The Exhibition.  This podcast took us an age and a century to finally record (and about half that to release), so we don’t remember every little detail in its proper order, but we do try to walk you through in a somewhat linear fashion.  Being PFW, we also wander off on tangents such as who exactly touched which objects and the contents of various museums, reminiscence about Special Edition 4, decry the under-representation of Hufflepuff in merchandise, and in the case of at least one host, consume copious amounts of alcohol.  At least twice Scott loses track of a section, and once Kat renames an entire city!

Nonetheless, we hope that this will give you a good account of what it’s like, remind you of your own trip(s), inspire you to go for the first time, or at the very least make you laugh.  

Disclaimer: Poufwa does not endorse the abrogation of Exhibition guidelines.  Do try to resist petting things, kids. Additionally we do not endorse any violent actions against others, no matter how annoying they might be – and no matter how much they may try to elbow you out of the way. As a general reminder, Poufwa should not be listened to while lifting heavy equipment, driving tractors, or cooking/eating pancakes.

Episode 120 – Floating S’mores, Flaming Bill and Kelly loves Kingsley

Episode 120 of PotterFicWeekly has been released!

In this episode the Poufwa crew join the Weasleys as they take on Umbridge in The Worthy King and Fred And, by The Starhorse.  In the process, Fred foams at the mouth, Bill is on fire, and Charlie is appreciated from many angles.  Fair warning: Umbridge is present far too often for anyone’s peace of mind, and reaches new lows in character that are liable to cause increasingly virulent muttering.  Fortunately, judicious applications of JFF and A Very Potter Sequel not only allow us to maintain equilibrium, they also (hopefully) add entertainment value for you!  We would like to give a special thanks to Justin Finch-Fletchley for allowing us to use his song Umbridge is Dumbridge.  Repeatedly.  

Please join us in wishing Justin well as he recovers from a vocal condition that has him sitting on the sidelines at this time, not to mention assorted other injuries.  If the PFW curse has reached out to you, Justin, we heartily apologize.

Also in this episode:

~Where’s Tricia?
~Kat learns about the Poufwa Curse
~Kat is NOT a morning person
~We love to HATE Umbridge
~Sue discovers the Lexicon
~Charlie’s PJ’s

Episode 119 – Charlie Weasley: a Towel-Wearing, Black-Belt-Owning, Pack Mule Superhero!

Episode 119 of PotterFicWeekly has been released!

Tonight the Hosts, accompanied by a duct-taped Peon, launch their coverage of the Fox Ears Universe by The Starhorse with the discussion of the first fic, Fox Ears.

The Weasley family is deep in mourning after the battle of Hogwarts, but George has better ideas than to sit around and cry about something he’d rather just fix. And Charlie believes he can do it.

The episode’s from the past…like back in the day when the hosts were Peons!
Scarlett is the kid duct-taped in the corner…
Tricia needs a towel…
We are not so fond of the nickname Char…
No foxes were harmed in the making of this podcast, but Kat was clawed…
Scarlett tries to steal the twins. Kat is not amused….
Nitpicking–It Doesn’t Matter….
Kat’s canon: it looks like this…
Fred and George ignore canon too
Short Weasley Club…
Scarlett starts an owl-order business…
Poufwa likes banter…
It’s not Poufwa unless Scott drops…
Charlie has a stick-thingy…
Accio Fred!!
Weasleys are members of the Tacklehugglepounce Squad…
Dance party with Percy Weasley!
Looking ahead at the sequel, we call Umbridge nasty names…

Apologies to Ministry of Magic, Team StarKid, Jim Dale, Butterbeer Experience, and Justin Finch-Fletchley.

All quality issues should be referred to the Poufwa Nargles. I do believe in Nargles, I do, I do.

Weird.  

Join Poufwa in discussing the film, the theater experience, and a particular picture of Dan Radcliffe that cracks Kezza up!

This story was written prior to the release of “Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince.”

In this episode, Etai didn’t do his homework, Kelly spoils Oliversgal and we find Nigel. There is wrock music embedded throughout and we love Bob and Chocolate. Etai leaves and Scott takes his place, as we eagerly anticipate finding out what’s in the letter.

Episode 115 of PotterFicWeekly has been released! This episode features back-to-back PeonCasts that we couldn’t cram into Poufwa’s third season.

In an episode that was recorded long long ago, in a time when we were still Peons, we cover Midnight Musings…sort of.

We also wait for The Big Gun to rescue Ryan, who has become a Smurf, no wait, a Slytherin.  I told you this was recorded a long time ago.

We discuss everything from Kelly’s obsession with MAMA to Hockey to Alton Brown with an ice pick,  Yes folks we are all over the map on this one, we even find time to discuss Midnight Musings by Alchemilla, which is a prequel to Test of Time, our next fic.  Be sure to join us next time as we discuss the story that helped bring three of our hosts into the fandom.

Episode 114 – Estrogen in Balance, Love in the Air: May the Adventure Begin

Episode 114 of PotterFicWeekly has been released!

It’s September 1st 2nd 3rd 4th and the Hogwarts Express has arrived to begin another year of PotterFicWeekly, bringing a double-header of two nights’ recording in one single episode.

While Season 4 may not have a welcoming feast, we do discuss the Hogwarts kitchens, a cucumber, a vat of liquid chocolate, boiling cauldrons, pumpkin pie, (brief) lunches in the Great Hall, and spotted dick!

All of which manage to be on topic with our coverage of cwarbeck’s Advice for the Lovelorn Masses, a six-chapter story in which Ginny finds herself a go-to girl for love life advice–when she doesn’t even have one of her own!

Don’t worry though, I’m sure you’ll be relieved to know we’ve still got plenty of your beloved off-topic tangents and classic moments, featuring Star Trek, Disney, repeated intros and talking while on mute!  Not to mention pet antics, Tricia’s thoughts about Alan Rickman, and the proper definition of the word ‘clemmed’.

Episode 113 – Goodbye, Farewell, Amen, and the Dangers of Oversharing

PotterFicWeekly’s third season finale, and the final episode of classic Poufwa, has been released!

Our fellow Poufwanians, after three and a half years of appendix-rupturing, whale-slicing, volcano-rupturing, scorpion-biting, vicodin-downing madness resulting in one arrest, one traffic citation, six near deaths, one aquatic fornication and matching insemination, a conversion, two weddings, three babies, two buns in the oven, a runaway tractor, two bags of non-temperate dairy products, a scandalous of use popcorn and a hit ’round the rear, the team that inspired a forum to become a family and launched more lifelong friendships that can be counted is handing over the reigns to the next generation of Poufwanians!

Everyone reading this has busy lives, and you’ve stuck with us longer than we deserved your attention and longer than we ever thought we’d need it. We can’t thank you enough for the journey! When we think back to the people we were when this whole trip started, it’s hard to believe we’re the same people. When we’re old and gray, and have several weeks free with nothing to do, we’ll listen to the whole journey again, probably having forgotten most of it, and remember very good days while asking the question any newbie would ask:

Is Jen real or did we make her up for the ratings?

First of all, PotterFicWeekly isn’t going anywhere, and it’s only getting better from here. The fourth season of PotterFicWeekly launches in the next few days and offers strikingly sober analysis of Harry Potter fan fiction with a Poufwa twist. I think that means they come prepared and do a better job than we ever did, but something blows up anyway. If you’re not done with Harry yet, the story isn’t close to ending. If you are, listen anyway. They’re Poufwanians, and this is their schedule!

Starting next week, the Poufwa Exchange launches it’s second season and is upgraded to a full-time podcast! The classic Poufwa hosts will dive into other fandoms with PotterFicWeekly-style discussion episodes that may or may not be on-topic. Read up, watch up, or come as you are. The season premiere will also be out in a few days. Here’s our upcoming lineup!

Tonight’s episode is a quadruple-length edition! We begin with a special introduction written by Scarlett, starring herself, Dethryl, PS, Scott, Sue, Jen2, Kezza, Julia, and Kat. The Friday the 13th joke was funnier when she wrote it.

We then move on to our episode discussion, concluding wonderful Kezza’s equally wonderful Rebuilding Life, discussing Chapters 46 through to the epilogue!

Straight from there, you’re all invited to the combination author interview/wrap party! It’s a good thing Kezza is one of our own, because the alcohol was flowing at this point. There’s so many bullet points I could use at this point, but all I can tell you is one very special Poufwanian woke up the next morning with no memory of the recording and a note written on her palm to call me to discuss the events of the previous evening. I’ll give you a hint. It wasn’t Sarah Palin!

Bring kleenex!

And in the final episode of PeonCast, Math Geek Heaven: Arithmancy and an Imaginary Train, the Peons discuss Platform i by shewhoguards!

~Tim Tams = Yummy
~Scott’s microphone and a special hat
~Infinite fractional platforms
~Wizard spam
~We love to laugh
~Moving boundaries
~That’s not a number!
~Those weird Arithmancy wizards
~Walking into walls

Episode 112 – Dirt Dirt, Boat Boats, Book Books, Police Police, and The Calm Before the Storm

Episode 112 of PotterFicWeekly has been released!

Due to a gas leak in the Poufwa Offices, the first 82 lucky downloaders have received an advanced copy of Episode 114, our fourth season premiere, in place of tonight’s PeonCast. If you’re one of the lucky ones, feel free to download the episode again!

In classic Poufwa’s penultimate episode, we resume coverage of Kezza’s Rebuilding Life, discussing Chapters 39-45!

A little.

We also settle the Mac/PC debate, figure out what’s going on with that whole Tea Party business, and debate the pros and cons of tipping at the Olive Garden. Jen’s here too, prepared with notes and highlighters but three years late.

Next week’s triple-length episode will be the final PotterFicWeekly of the original crew, containing final chapter analysis of Kezza’s fic and the Poufwa wrap party. You’ve known us for years and know what we’re capable of, but all that goes out the window when Rinna brings the beverages.

Join us in toasting Poufwa, the best podcast on the feed!

But the story never ends and neither does the podcast. The Peons take over with Episode 114 and are busy at work on the best season of Poufwa yet, while myself and many of your favorite Poufwanians are moving over to our sequel podcast, the Poufwa Exchange. Full-time Poufwanians will snort their way through some of the best fandoms ever conceived. With Aaron’s keyboard feeling our way through the dark, the journey begins in two weeks. Since we’re Poufwanians, more like three. We hope to see you there!

Speaking of Peons, in Episode 55 of PeonCast, Crying under the Oak Tree, the Peons discuss Wednesday Dates and A Proper Place, by fizzmonkeys!

~Kelly gives this a pass
~Relationship advice from Tricia
~The romantic tree
~And the one that’s not
~He’s all alone
~The text reader needs to ‘read’ italics
~”I’m helping him cry.”
~We needed a laugh

Episode 110 of PotterFicWeekly has been released!

Four more Poufwa’s before the Torch is passed! In our third of six episodes covering Kezza’s Rebuilding Life, we move on to Chapters 22-29.

This episode is packed with unpredictably on-topic analysis of some of the best chapters of Kezza’s fic! A little. PS also beats Scott at accents and the 2007 US Farm Bill pops up. And a bird tried to kill me.

in Episode 53 of PeonCast, We lost the Jew, It’s The Harry Potter, and Welcome to the Weasleys, the Peons discuss Number Eight Privet Drive, by rhye aka Jess!

Episode 109 of PotterFicWeekly has been released!

Five more Poufwa’s before the Torch is passed! In our second of six episodes covering Kezza’s Rebuilding Life, we move on to Chapters 16-21.

In this episode, Kezza stops by for a visit and is wicked hot all at the same time, PS is determined to tell an interesting story and won’t quit until she makes it, Aaron makes out with an iPad, and I make out with PS. Typical Poufwa stuff!

Episode 108 – We Solemnly Swear; Mischief Managed

Episode 108 of PotterFicWeekly has been released!

After much anticipation, the final six Poufwa’s before the Torch pass are here! Returning the spirit of our After the End roots, we will be closing out our season with Kezza’s Rebuilding Life! Tonight’s coverage is for Chapters 1-15.

Harry has defeated Voldemort but is going back to his life going to be easy? What will he go back to, the life he once had is meaningless now. It’s time to build a new one and to create a new post-Voldemort world. Ginny is there waiting for him, what do they need to do to rebuild their lives?

In this episode, Deth has gas, Scott gets fangirled, I can’t beta, Melinda has a Cast, we MasterFic the Family Jewels, Kezza makes us cry, PS explains how car engines work, we meet Devel, the love child of Dethryl and Neville, and Melinda and I do some shipping!

Tonight, with seven episodes left before your humble hosts pass the Torch and incinerate five square-miles of Texas, Poufwa offers our final of three episodes reviewing Stealing Harry, by Sam_StoryTeller, with discussion of Chapters 22-28!

Snape works for OnStar, we remember the o-zone layer, and final thoughts on the fic!

…A slip of the tongue: there’s a book for that!
…the creepy eyes of goat boy!
…the lost art of courting!

in Episode 50! of PeonCast, Tears, Balls and Apple Pie, the Peons discuss In My Garden, by Aggiebell, AKA Jules!

The long awaited Episode 106 of PotterFicWeekly has been released!

Tonight, with eight episodes left before your humble hosts pass the Torch and incinerate five square-miles of Texas, Poufwa offers the second of three episode series reviewing Stealing Harry, by Sam_StoryTeller, with discussion of Chapters 7-21!

No show-notes. You wouldn’t believe it if we wrote them. This episode is one of the best we’ve ever released, combining hosts of past and present who are all on the mark, or off the mark…whichever is the good one. So as much as I want to spoil you on PS’ naval career, you’re on your own.

After these two very helpful necessary visual aids that you are ordered not to open until the time is right…

Open me only when everyone checks out PS’ artwork!

Open me when everyone checks out Jen1′s artwork!

Episode 105 – Can we make a general observation?

Episode 105 of PotterFicWeekly has been released!

Tonight, with nine episodes left before your humble hosts pass the Torch and incinerate five square-miles of Texas, Poufwa launches a three episode series reviewing Stealing Harry, by Sam_StoryTeller, with discussion of Chapters 1-6!

Stealing Harry grabs canon by the throat and disembowls it. If Lucius Malfoy got to Peter Pettigrew before Sirius could, Sirius would be a bookshop owner, Remus would have a steady job, and one day, when Harry Potter was eight-and-a-half years old, they might kidnap him from the Dursleys… (Sirius/Remus in later chapters)

In this episode, LadyChi returns to the fold, bringing back that special something that’s been missing. I drink jet fuel, PS may or may not be drunk, Rinna is very upset, and half of the dialogue gets bleeped.

And Harry gets stolen!

This episode also includes:

…Rinna in the dryer
…koolaid!
…big words!
…surgery on the cheap
…something so horrifying that Rinna almost wishes for…small anatomically impossible, same-sex reproduced humans.
…the most lying liars
…Melinda’s favorite line EVAH
…a Rinna foreshadowing shocker
…the losing of Jen1
…the breaking of PS, and how a purple comforter and blood relate to her love of Saul Tigh and Horace

in Episode 48 of PeonCast, My Name is What?, Drunk Podcasting and Dobby the Cardshark, the Peons discuss Registration, also by Sam_StoryTeller, or Copperbadge!

~Remus – Squeeeee
~Mike – the plant, not the person

Episode 103 – The PS Files: Murder, Smut and Fairywings

Episode 103 of PotterFicWeekly has been released!

In this episode, Mike and Ryan finally understand it all!

Following the melting of Ryan’s laptop, Poufwa One, and the original version of this episode – a stunning and artfully crafted piece of audio delight – to preserve an important piece of essential Poufwa history, we re-imagine (like Battlestar Galactica) the moment at which PS finally enables Mike to finally understand that Aaron is heterosexual – as he has consistently been.

Like forever.

Ryan meets PS … and finds out that she has hidden a very important piece of herself from us, but he’s not letting her get away with that any longer!

And Rinna – who nearly tried to strangle the other hosts during the lost ‘magical Cylons invade Hogwarts’ plot bunny exploration, makes up for it with a tripping dream where Kezza is pregnant, Ryan insists he’s the father and Mr Kezza doesn’t know – he’s not even home!

Dethryl brings drinks and the world’s biggest moustache, and all of this takes place in the first 25 minutes, before we start to discuss the fic, Star of the North’s Tale of a Time Long Gone, Chapters 8-15, which on FF.net would be 7-14. You’ll understand when you get there.

Oh, and the Peon’s have a special announcement…

Speaking of Peons, in Episode 46 of PeonCast, The Letter T is bigger than a Bread Box?…and Bumper Stickers, the Peons discuss The Thinking Cap Returns and Riddle of the Thinking Cap, by Andrea13. An audio version of the fic is available, courtesy of Scott!

Episode 102 – Ninja Deer, Ryan is Lord, and I Triple-DogDare you!

Episode 102 of PotterFicWeekly has been released!

For the next three weeks, join Poufwa as we travel back in time and visit the Four Founders of Hogwarts, with Star of the North’s Tale of a Time Long Gone! In tonight’s podcast, we cover the first seven chapters, which on FF.net would be the prologue through Chapter 6.

We’ve never been closer to the Founders than Bob Hufflepuff and the Second Circuit Court of Appeals, so when reading the summary, We all know of them, for without them where would Hogwarts be? Bold Gryffindor, Fair Ravenclaw, Sweet Hufflepuff, Shrewd Slytherin, I was expecting stereotypical, one-dimensional echoes of Harry, Ginny, Hermione and Draco. I couldn’t have been more mistaken, and Star of the North created a very deep world where the founders are fully realized people not remembered with startling accuracy. These characters are my new canon, so please enjoy!

Rinna was also hit by a wild animal. Swallow all liquids, for it’s at the top of the fold!

This episode, when recorded, also blew up the Poufwa forum for about nine days. Memories…

Also in this episode:

There is singing.
Kezza needs netflicks.
Aaron, Asleep again? He’ll never live that down.
Mr. Kezza has a stalker.
Aaron can’t multitask.
Hat is Alive.
Molly is Jewish.
More singing
Rinna, the mad stapler
Kezza is the new Mike.
Rocks, rocks and more rocks
Puffy
Who has the bigger, er, Horse?
I am a Ravenclaw.
Who goes there?

In episode 45 of PeonCast, We’re interchangeable, Was there a Fic? and We love the Banter, the Peons discuss The Thinking Cap, by Andrea13. An audio version of the fic is available, courtesy of Scott!

~Scott has audiofic

Episode 101 – Mike’s Farewell: Dethryl makes pasta

Episode 101 of PotterFicWeekly has been released!

Except for one final Poufwa Exchange episode that has yet to see the light of day, this episode is Mike’s last contribution to PotterFicWeekly. There’s no one else in the universe quite like Mike, and I find it difficult to put into words precisely what that was that he added to our podcast over the years! Certainly, images of LadyChi in African safari gear, collapsing tables, and four thousand cockroaches are flashing before my eyes.

Mike, please give our best to Kim, Meg, Phil and the other lost Poufwa hosts when you meet up with them beyond the rim. Rest assured that the next batch of Poufwa episodes to come have, fortunately, very stellar content, truly Poufwanian stuff that I’m immeasurably proud of. I’m grateful to you for spraying us down with your special brand of oomph before leaving.

Safe journey, and on behalf of Poufwa: Bai!

Oh, in recognition of your years of tireless service, please do enjoy this jar of store-bought pasta sauce.

This episode covers Chapters 35-45 of In Blood Only, by EM Snape, and our final of four episodes on the fic!

Join us next week for three spectacular Poufwa episodes covering Tale of a Time Long Gone, by Star of the North.

We all know of them, for without them where would Hogwarts be? Bold Gryffindor, Fair Ravenclaw, Sweet Hufflepuff, Shrewd Slytherin. Founders of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.

In episode 44 of PeonCast, Learning to Live With What Life has Dealt You, the Peons discuss Cauterize, by lady_altair.

Episode 100 – Good Evening, and Welcome to MasterFic Theater!

After 38 months, 99 episodes, 21 special editions, and fourteen days, thirteen hours, ten minutes, and five seconds of conversation packed with volcanic eruptions, erectile dysfunction, hyper-electrocuted mascots, twenty-six near death experiences and the bulk purchase of Kool-Aid, members of the Poufwa community got together to produce skits for every fic covered by PotterFicWeekly!

You may laugh, you may cry, and you may want to cry. You may be moved–we won’t say where–and regardless of whether you are pregnant or not, your water will break.

This project was conceived by Jen on March 17, 2009, and has literally been one year in the making. With thirty different versions of every line in a bajillion different pieces, Scott and Sue labored and edited this project every day for the past year, finding the perfect music and just the right sound effect, and then edited it all over again just to make it better! I got my hands on it and broke it within minutes, but luckily Poufwa stocks duct-tape by the crate.

PotterFicWeekly proudly presents Episode 100, a Masterfic Theatre production. Welcome to the place where the story never ends.

We won’t let it.

Happy listening!

Episode 99 – Fenrir Greyback is a crazy whore, and Mike captures Poufwa

Episode 99 of PotterFicWeekly has been released!

Before Mike bids us farewell, he decides to capture Poufwa! His reign of terror involves the spread of communism, an explosion of sound effects, Conan the Adventurer, Richard M. Nixon, a bagel, the ultimate victor in the battle between an armchair and a love-seat, and former US Vice President George Clinton.

Allow me to present one of the best episodes Poufwa has ever put out!

Along the way, we also touch on In Blood Only, Chapters 25-34!

In episode 43 of PeonCast, Smart Children, Old Folks and Surprise Email, the Peons discuss: The Wizard and the Hopping Pot, by Vikki3!

Lucky, Lucy, Luscious, Lucius… it’s all the same dude, man;

Snape is Harry’s father. No one is happy to hear it.

In this episode, Kezza is definitely not happy to hear it. Mike wonders why. It’s a very heated conversation that had me laughing so hard that my real-life friends were desperate to find Poufwa and discover what was so funny. If only they knew!

Next week’s episode will cover through Chapter 25.

Episode 41 of PeonCast, Classic PeonCast, Nothing but the Best and F is for Final, covers The F Series-Fortune and The F Series-Fireworks by Antosha.

In tonight’s episode, we discuss the final chapters, break for PeonCast, and return with an extended interview with Barb. It’s been a terrific nine part series, and we very much look forward to covering our final four fics with you over the coming months!

Be sure to join us for coverage of In Blood Only, by E.M. Snape, beginning next week. From there, we’ll travel back in time 1,000 years to meet my very famous yet not so much flame retardant ancestor, drop by a bookstore in Surrey that believes in reading the best of CS Lewis in chronological order, and find out what Kezza’s really been up to all these years!

Special Edition 20 – Peons and Presents; Poufwa looks back!

Special Edition 20, Poufwa’s third annual holiday podcast, has been released!

The hosts take the night off, and the Peons are pleased to present their 39th episode, covering Christmas 1980, by Ignipes.

Harry’s first Christmas doesn’t go exactly the way his mum hoped it would. (Lily/James)

An audio version of the story is available right here, narrated by Kismatt!

With tonight’s episode, Poufwa is happy to release messages and songs from members of our forum community! In editing the episode together, I joked to myself that we should put out a “Best of Poufwa” CD, and as a result of that stray thought, this episode will also include all of the songs, plays, and messages created by our members over the years. At this time of year, it’s a lot of fun to remember where we all were as a community, and as people, back in Poufwa’s Golden Age.

A very Merry, safe, and peaceful holiday to you all!

Happy listening!

Episode 94 – Two half podcasters, one fake Arthur, and a tent

Episode 94 of PotterFicWeekly has been released!

With three episodes to go in our coverage of Barb’s Psychic Serpent trilogy, Poufwa jumps into a discussion of Chapters 1-10 of Harry Potter and the Triangle Prophecy!

Harry’s 7th and final year of school. In a time of uncertainty, the Muggle world has found a source of comfort and stability. Only Harry suspects that it isn’t safe. Wizards are more concerned about themselves than Muggles since Voldemort’s return, but are only Muggles at risk? Will anyone listen to Harry? He must decide whether to make a sacrifice that will change him–and the wizarding world– forever.

Sue, Melindaleo and Dethryl are driving the bus this week, and I mean that literally in Sue’s case. It sounds like she’s actually driving a bus while podcasting!

In tonight’s episode:

ADH Harry is a roofer…
Dethryl objects to Harry being considerate of morning people…
Melinda objects to Slytherins…
Dethryl turns purple and has a coronary…
Canon versus AU versus real versus fake leads to one conclusion: Harry Potter is real!
Sue’s in a tunnel…
Molly’s in a plant…
The gang’s in a clown car…
…and because the plot says so!

PeonCast #37: In Which Snorkacks Lay Eggs, Singing is Dry Work, and Neville is Suave…ish, covering Forever, by Antosha!

~Technical difficulties all around.
~Sue is Jen.
~Ms. Lupin not M.S. Lupin.
~Slughorn is the new Lockhart.
~A non sparkly vampire, who wears his heart on his sleeve.
~Luna knows Quidditch.
~Kayla, forgive us.
~Sue knows her sports. Not!

Episode 93 – Jews, Mike, and a Penguin

‘Nuff said!

Episode 93 of PotterFicWeekly has been released!

Topping off our discussion of Harry Potter and the Time of Good Intentions with Chapter 15-21 discussion, Poufwa crashes at Ruth’s house to bone up on the latest Hebrew updates from Poufwa’s own Resident Jews!

There is singing involved. Mike and I are on the line. Do-the-math.

And don’t drink carbonated refreshments while listening!

In between discussing terrific character moments and complex time-travel mechanics that scream out for the assistance of Doc Brown’s dry-erase board, Mike weighs in with his weekly commentary on an important social issue that he feels is plaguing the human race. You’ll recall that three weeks ago he weighed in on sex ed classes in a Mike Administration. There was gasping and headdesking.

This week, Mike outdoes himself. That’s all I can say. And once you listen, you’ll likely be as speechless as I am!

And tonight, the Peons are proud to release Episode 36: Sue confused, the Wrong Track, and Plinky, Planky Soup, covering First, by Antosha!

~Cody is Duct Taped in the corner.
~We try tongue twisters.
~What hand does Dean use?
~It’s a quadrangle.
~Kreacher: matchmaker or interior decorator?
~ #13 Grindlewald Place.
~Dan has the emotional range of more than a teaspoon.
~Monty Python defeats Scott.

Episode 92 – Apologies to Lesbians and Bob Dole

Episode 92 of PotterFicWeekly has been released!

Resuming our discussion of Chapters 8-14 of Harry Potter and the Time of Good Intentions, Poufwa blends together solid fic discussion and analysis with the literary equivilant of off roading in a Ford Escort.

In this episode:

Mike is charge, can’t tell who anybody is, thinks Dethryl is an imposter, pre-interprets prophecy, has a million questions, and reveals to us that he – Mike – the big guy – has a crazy brother…

PS is a Subaru, Dethryl is a Nissan, and Kismatt is the Vicar of Dibley…

Harry has emotions, Dumbledore’s a pirate, and don’t forget those five important words: The-plot-said-so.

Following Episode 92 of Poufwa, stay tuned for Episode 35 of PeonCast: Two True Poufwanians, Vernon on Top, and Mike is Harry, where the Peons discuss The F Words 4: Family, by Antosha!

Daniel walks on water….
Sue takes on the tractor.
Making the TEA…
Kelly interrupts, then changes her mind…
Hawt Dudley…
Kayla wonders, who’s on top?
We love Mike…
Mel Brooks…..who?
…Men in uniform.

In this episode, PS searches high and low for the nearest Dairy Queen, everyone forgets which holiday they’re celebrating, the true identity of Santa is revealed, and the Headless Horseman gallops through Hogwarts while we gallop through Halloween themed HP fics: both of them.

On behalf of the crackerjack team over here at PotterFicWeekly, Merry Christmas everyone!!!!

In the meantime we have a Facebook page

Episode 90 – Neville’s a drug addict, Rosmerta needs HRT and Hermione’s on Viagra

Episode 90 of PotterFicWeekly has been released!

Join us for  the third instalment in our series on The Psychic Serpent Trilogy by Barb.

In this episode we cover chapters 24 through the Epilogue of The Psychic Serpent. In this episode:

Mike podcasts from a falling dryer on Neptune that is rolling down a hill infested with cockroaches

Jen2 and Kezza break up over movie tickets and biscuit cans but Kezza and Mr Kezza get married in spite of Titanic

Mike breaks up with Draco and Ryan breaks Mike with hugs and a love-meter

The Harry Potter child actors meet Diff’rent Strokes and grow pot while dressed as transvestites without knickers looking super-meg-foxy-awesome hot

Ryan cracks against Jo Rowling and menopausal Rosmerta while favouring the F-word

Mike makes Jen2 blush in the fluffy room and Kezza loses it at the thought of popcorn

Dethryl collides with Wizards in Kilts and Mike and Kezza try to forget Irish lesbian McGonagall and Scottish Seamus

Ryan Turns Around for Barb, Dethryl ships Mike and Ryan thinks about Kezza’s popcorn when he should be working
Mike solves the duelling mystery and is not helped by the quicksand wisdom dispensed by the hosts

None of the hosts know who the Head Boy is, who dated Cho and Fleur, if Cedric Diggory has more going for him than great hair or whether Roger Davies is evil or just boring like Terry Boot

Even when they all drop off the call they pick it right back up again right where they left off talking about Harry’s banana

There is nothing to be said about the Viagra … just listen as Mike delivers a safe sex PSA

In Episode 33 of PeonCast: The Next Generation, Three Puffs and a Gryffy walk into a Podcast, the Peons share with us Antosha’s The F Words 2: Fame.

Loswen arrived to balance out the Puffiness but we forgot to tell her to read the previous chapter. Oops.

The Hufflepuffs steal Harry and Luna, the Gryffindors throw Hermione out and Daniel plucks heartstrings. Then it?s time for popcorn as The Next Generation goes back, waaaay back to Number Ten …

Listen on as Daniel and Loswen have a showdown, Dumbledore is cast in Lord of the Rings because he has a ring and Kayla gets visitors to Canada, the safest place next to Oz …

Episode 89 – Blah, blah, blah, blah … blah, blah … blah blah – and Huggles is Getting Hitched!

In this instalment of PotterFicWeekly, we review chapters 11-23 of The Psychic Serpent by Barb. Stay tuned for some exciting announcements!

In the actual fic …

Hermione visits the water cooler to protect against Harry’s super sperm

Harry’s penis is conflicted and leading him around the castle like his own very short leash

Draco Malfoy is a Skeevy Perv, George has a beautiful chest and fake Neville, the bagel is not horny enough

Sandy is a Big Brother Contestant but clearly, it’s actually a teen sex comedy – behold, Porky’s at Hogwarts

In other news …

The ED belongs to Ryan (unfortunate …)

Aaron and Dethryl are too young to laugh about sixteen candles and Daniel Radcliffe is a poor’ little tiny man

None of this was apparently enough to keep a red-blooded American male awake … WAKE UP AARON!

On Tonight’s PeonCast Scott goes MIA but Editor Sue comes to the rescue as the team begin their sojourn with Antosha’s F Words, er series, with the first fic – Friends.

Introducing Ryan and Chi’s Love Child

Episode 88 – The Combined Colliding Forces of Frozen Kezza, Menopausal Jen2, and Whormione

In honor of the release of ABC’s new series Flashforward, we flashback without reason to Episode 86 at several points in this episode. Sadly, we’re so random anyway you likely won’t notice!

Episode 88 of PotterFicWeekly, our funniest episode yet, has been released!

For the next nine episodes, Poufwa dives butt first into Barb’s classic Psychic Serpent Trilogy!

In Harry’s fifth year he gets a snake with the Sight. Hermione’s torn between Ron and Harry, who’s torn between her and Ginny, who’s torn between him and Draco Malfoy, who’s torn between her and loyalty to his father. Plus: a Prophecy, Animagus training, a Dueling Club, Snape’s Penseive, kilts, giants, house elf liberation and more!

Over the next few weeks, prepare for in-depth character analysis, lips drawn into invisible lines, Hermione’s bikini, sex-ed with Mike, possums with Kezza, and Poufwa’s best Spamelot! As we close in on Episode 100, and more importantly – sweeps! – watch for your favorite Poufwanians to pair off!

In tonight’s episode, we cover Chapters 1-10 of Psychic Serpent!

Jen2 and Kezza are forced to make a thingie…

Mike, lights, and the wall cockroach!

Mike predicts the end of the Psychic Serpent triology after reading something like six paragraphs, and knocks his inability to comprehend mpreg firmly into second place on the “Top Ten Mike Moments” listing!

Hermione’s bikini pops up, or something like that.

Mike knocks his prediction on the end of the Psychic Serpent trilogy firmly into second place, and his inability to comprehend mpreg firmly into third place, with his own self-ship projection, revealing his middle name and PS’ first name for the first time. Oh, you thought they were two different names? You must be a new listener!

Jen2 ships Ryan, Kezza ships Ryan, Mike ships PS, Jen2 ships Kezza, Son and Heir ships eBaby, Danny ships Sandy, and Ryan ships Mike!

There’s singing. A cat dies.

On tonight’s PeonCast, disaster struck. Cody’s computer exploded and melted her lines for tonight’s episode. Not to allow fantastic episode to go to waste, Sue recruits Mike to play Cody!

Please join the peons in reviewing Up to Speed, by Amelia Bedelia!

Lily and James used to be best friends, hanging out in their neighborhood with each other. But once they were accepted into Hogwarts, they went their separate ways – James, the popular prankster, and Lily, the know-it-all bystander. But will their past be able to bring them back together?

Episode 87 – Fanny Packs, textiles, and kleptomaniac deer!

Episode 87 of PotterFicWeekly has been released!

In our final episode discussing Dumbledore’s Army and the Year of Darkness by Andrew/thanfiction, we review chapters Chapters 20-25 and bring Andrew onto the podcast!

The fandom is an escape from real life that is primarily a text-based environment. We may speak to each other on Poufwa, but there’s no visual component and we’re denied the assistance of body language. Suffice to say, the interview was a bit awkward due to a remarkable series of crossed signals. When you think you’re defending a friend, reality gets blurred, and everything snowballs.

Not every experience with authors and their readers have been pleasant ones for us at PotterFicWeekly. I’m pleased to say that above and beyond, this one truly was. Any rockiness on the journey will soon be forgotten because the partnership ended on a very high note. I look forward to my future participation in the DAYD universe, including spending most of my Irish honeymoon curled in the fetal position!

Back to work! In this episode:

~ Jen Classic is missing and presumed dead. You’ll never guess where we found her…

~ Madam Pomphrey is a bitch!

~ I nearly have an end-of-the-story flip-flop!

~ Mike on Spiders and Swedes!

~ Drunk Mike in the woods with a stolen shoe!

~ Mike explains the accidental wank, as only he can…

~ Tim is a fanboy, and why Andrew is the coolest person ever…

~ The wheels come off the wagon…

Episode 85 of PotterFicWeekly has been released!

This evening, Poufwa resumes its coverage of Dumbledore’s Army and the Year of Darkness by thanfiction, highlighting Chapters 7-13!

We remain in Jen2′s debt for choosing this thrilling fic for our podcast. She wanted to be here this evening to contribute – she really did – but apparently her hip popped out of its socket in a freak vacuuming accident. The frame to her bed also snapped so she’s out shopping. Hope to see you soon, Jen2! *chomps on popcorn*

In this episode:

~Rinna and Mike spend two hours together and Snape comes up frequently. Maybe we all need popcorn!

~The characters of Filch, Snape and Seamus are heavily analyzed. You’ll never guess who thinks Filch was misunderstood!

Episode 84 of PotterFicWeekly has been released!

I am so-thrilled-I-could-monologue to officially release the first of four podcasts covering Dumbledore’s Army and the Year of Darkness by thanfiction. This fic was chosen by Jen2 for discussion on the podcast, and is now one of my all-time favorite fics ever discussed on Poufwa.

During the reign of Snape and the Carrows, Dumbledore’s Army becomes a true resistance movement under the most unlikely of leaders.

In this episode:

~Mike finds Jen2′s address and madness ensues…

~I detail my plan to personally save the world on my lunch hour…

Episode 81 – A Year Late Because of Jen and the Bow Wow

Due to Jen Classic’s ironclad contractual obligations, unstopped by rain, snow, sleet, vicodin, rampant nausea, inability to see feet, and lifegiving moments captured on Facebook video, Poufwa is pleased to present its three week arc on the Snape/Hermione fic, When a Lioness Fights, by kayly silverstorm!

In this episode:

Hermione is a quite troubled, young caffeine-addicted, Vulcan/Borg Death Eater hybrid who thinks tribal warriors are girly men who stare at delicate waves for comfort.

Dumbledore has Parkinsons. If it were a ship, Remus/Tree would be unemployed.

Snape is Batman…

Hermione’s spleen is missing…

…and we’re pretty sure Jen is committing a federal crime during the recording of this episode.

Episode 80 – Cliches & Cliffhangers: The Peons Take Over

Episode 80 of PotterFicWeekly has been released!

Tonight, Poufwa concludes its three-episode arc covering CreativeQuill’s Harry Potter and the Power of Faith!

Due to a labor shortage and issues of dyslexia and erectile dysfunction, the hosts abandoned ship and requested a bailout. This two-part episode is driven completely by our lovely neighborhood peons, covering Chapters 1-11 in the first hour, and the balance in the second.

They discover:

War is like paintball

Tricia channels Mike

NPR = PFW

Susan the communist!

Social Services: You have one hour!”

After cleaning up for the hosts, the Peons take four seconds off before returning with tonight’s PeonCast: Spoilers, Dean “Bloody” Thomas and What’s Ron Eating? which concludes discussion of the prequel story, In the Beginning, where:

Ron combines food and sex

Kelly spoils Kayla and Tricia

Lav Lav has assets

Kelly is logical

and Sue is not a communist…for now!

Special Edition 18 – Squeefest Half-Blood Prince!

Our thrilling round robin episode where we discuss the great and important points of the new Half-Blood Prince film has been released! Early!

It’s Classic Jen as she falls off the line, Ultimate Jen2 as she has an Ebaby related emergency and Richard and PS hold to Poufwa tradition by shocking us all.

It’s not a commentary but because we’ve all been to see it twice in 24 hours we know half the scenes off by heart and learned to love the Harry/Ginny moments.

We’re not sure exactly what happened, but somewhere along the way we wanted to wrap Slughorn in a blanket, take Dan Radcliffe home and keep him on a shelf to amuse us and fell in love with Michael Gambon. WTF? Michael Gambon, FTW?

Oh, if you’re wondering – For The Win!

In this episode of PotterFicWeekly, we continue our three-episode arc covering Harry Potter and the Power of Truth and Harry Potter and the Power of Faith, by CreativeQuill!

In tonight’s book club:

…We discuss Chapters 15-26, concluding Harry Potter and the Power of Truth

…We discover where children come from! Whether they originate from the womb of Kezza or Harry and Ginny’s biracial manor, we’ve locked our GPS on their point of origin!

…I crash my car into a gas station and learn why Chapter 6 was in fact…quite important.

…Rinna reminds us why she loved this story in the first place.

…and I remind us all why, once again, Poufwa almost made me unemployed.

Episode 78 – Dean’s Sperm, Gordon’s Eye, and the Newspaper Lady

Episode 78, the third season premiere of PotterFicWeekly, has been released!

In this episode of PotterFicWeekly, we launch into a three episode arc analyzing Harry Potter and the Power of Truth and Harry Potter and the Power of Faith, by CreativeQuill!

What if the magical world DID exist? What if Harry Potter and the major characters from the books were real, and there was a very real threat looming from the magical world?

Hand selected by Rinna for the podcast, the CQ universe may not be the most polished playground in Poufwa history, but provides fertile ground for Poufwanians to be Poufwanians.

In this episode:

Mike expands past MPreg…
I get to the bottom of the number 47…
Mike writes the word “Maura” on the inside of his hand to prevent Kezza from strangling him…
I love Hermione and hate the newspaper lady…
Kezza loves Chapter 6…
We get into a fascinating discussion about Gordon Brown’s eyesight…
Kezza sings…
Rinna tells us what she really thinks about Mike….
…and I make a shocking discovery about the Potter family.

…and did I mention that a very special, sweeps-week romance will break out between two of your favorite Poufwa hosts? Shippers, start your engines.

On behalf of the Poufwa staff, I am also extremely pleased to announce the premiere of PeonCast: The Next Generation!

Starring a whole new generation of Peons, Peon Antics, Pencil Fascination and Harry is a Basketball Player analyzes the prequel to tonight’s fic, In The Beginning, by CreativeQuill. In a burst of activity, the Peons discover:

*their own lack of Star Trek knowledge…
*what is in that Pumpkin Juice, anyway…
*who is looking for Nargles…
*what hair fastener you use…
*and that burning question: how do you see around walls?

Special Edition 17 – The Longest Story Ever Told

And we’re back!

Special Edition 17 of PotterFicWeekly has been released!

Poufwa has always been about pushing the envelope, and we’ve done it again. Tonight, we offer a twelve hour podcast that is easily the longest non-live podcast in the history of the Harry Potter fandom, and possibly the in the history of the world.

The second season of PotterFicWeekly represents sixteen months in the lives of our community, our podcast production, and most importantly each other. We are united because we love the universe of Harry Potter so much that we can’t stand the prospect of it ending, and through that common bond share laughter and friendship.

But as proud Poufwanians, the entire process is kicked into overdrive. We laugh so hard we need our inhalers, which promptly burst in our hands. We jab ourselves with EpiPens to prevent unwanted death, but hit veins and require emergency medical transportation. Our ambulances are delayed due to herds of goats clogging the highway, themselves fleeing from an approaching lightning storm. Sadly, all we probably needed was some vicodin.

From Kezza’s peanut butter railway to Classic Jen’s winter-induced lesbianism…

From drunk Jen2′s notes to the conversion of PS to the dark side…

From the attempted assassination of Rinna by cat to Mike’s fascination with rising coastal waters…

From the entrepreneur who wanted to buy my bed to whatever Chi was on during the Smutgiving podcast…

…we dedicate this episode to the Poufwanian community, and the lifelong relationships it has created.

But most importantly, we dedicate this episode…to Susan Bones!

The full podast is 340 megabytes. In the event you have storage or connection issues, the episode is also available in two installments below.

Next week, the third season of Poufwa launches with our three-part coverage of Rinna’s selection for the podcast, Harry Potter and the Power of Truth and Harry Potter and the Power of Faith, by CreativeQuill.

What if the magical world DID exist? What if Harry Potter and the major characters from the books were real, and there was a very real threat looming from the magical world?

It is also my great pleasure to announce the debut of PeonCast: The Next Generation in our third season! Sue, Kismatt, Kayla, Scott, Mslupin, and Cody – together with their own peons – will pick up the baton from their ancestors and deliver weekly coverage of one-shots and short novel length fics, beginning next week with discussion of In the Beginning, by CreativeQuill!

Happy listening!

Episode 77 – Shipping Mike/Ella during a Poufwa Blackout while Jen loses a foot

Episode 77 of PotterFicWeekly has been released!

In the penultimate episode of Poufwa’s second season, like Jen’s runaway Camry, we cruise to the finish in style before crashing into a large wooden fence.

Recorded during the Great Poufwa Blackout of 2009, PS, Mike and Aaron steer the ship, Camry…whatever it is…through a discussion and analysis of the Backward with Purpose companion, The Book of Albus, by Deadwoodpecker. Picture two Star Trek geeks and the guy who thinks Professor Xavier is the captain of the starship Voyager debating time travel.

For those of you who loved Special Edition #4 from Poufwa’s first season but can’t remember what the episode was actually about, this is the episode for you. Poufwa was down. The chain of command had collapsed. Within thirty minutes, the topic turns to, and I’m quoting, “If you could remove Ryan’s brain and insert it into another host’s body, who would you choose and why?”

That’s just the first hour.

You’ll also hear Jen’s brief return to Poufwa, which lasts just long enough for her to injure herself in the stupidest way possible, treat herself with makeshift medical supplies I find in her freezer, and try to stay conscious by solving math problems involving Jimmy the Bus Boy and the worst scale ever built.

We also interview Ella. She doesn’t know any poetry, and we’re shipping her with Mike because it works. He’s not the father.

That. We. Know. Of.

Episode 76 – Sue watches bagel MPREG, Arthur doesn’t wear a helmet and Lily poops Boggarts

Episode 76 of PotterFicWeekly has been released!

In tonight’s episode of PotterFicWeekly, our hosts discuss Chapters 39 through the Outtakes of Backward with Purpose, by Deadwoodpecker, proving once again that our hosts can and will, when given the opportunity, turn something totally benign into a confusing mess, monologue incessantly and gossip like old women.

Some of tonight’s highlights include:

Sue discusses bagel mpreg;

Ryan publicly apologizes to Jen2 for sucking her into the madness of BSG;

Classic Jen bails because of Lee’s butt problems;

Mike buys LSD;

Ryan gets the down-low on Merlin;

PS establishes the existence of Ron’s intelligence;

Ryan, going senile, completely misses major plot points of Deathly Hallows, Snape doesn’t die a lame death and Lavender Brown may be alive;

PS reveals flashbacks from a former life;

A conversation about Daphne Greengrass leads Aaron to monologue on Hitler;

PS frets over the absence of Slughorn and why stories aren’t worth reading if Sluggy isn’t on the character list;

All this and more awaits you…

Episode 75 – The Return of Jen, Chi, and not so much Horace

Episode 75 of PotterFicWeekly has been released!

Classic Poufwa fans rejoice! We are pleased to announce the return of Jen and Chi to PotterFicWeekly!

For like an hour.

Jen celebrates her long awaited return to Poufwa by taking a seven week hiatus after this episode, and Chi’s voicemail and I are still on a first name basis. Never fear. Jen brought the kid!

In what is possibly the shortest episode in the history of PotterFicWeekly, our hosts discuss Chapters 25-38 of Backward with Purpose, by Deadwoodpecker, weighing in on their fresh thoughts of the fic as a whole, the Weasley’s betrayal, Neville’s thoroughly depressing trip to Azkaban, the shocking lack of Horace Slughorn, the normal excitement factor present in microbiology, and weigh in on when Jen should conceive her second child!

Episode 74 – Deep Poufwanians always and always love AU, frowning…

Episode 74 of PotterFicWeekly has been released!

This evening, we resume our analysis of Backward with Purpose, by Deadwoodpecker and cover Chapters 16 through 24.

We get deep. We’re rowdy. We talk about the origins of time and destiny. It’s like college in here!

I can’t make sense of the author’s name and call half of the characters disloyal. Well, at least Molly and Hermione.

While we’re on the subject, President Laura Roslin has a few things to say about Molly Weasley’s parenting skills. She’s coming for all of you!

Melindaleo, back from accusing Susan Bones of being a communist, is sadly in complete denial of her addiction to AU.

PS is utterly charming, but read the fic and sequel in one sitting and may need a catheter.

On that note, happy listening!

Episode 73 of PotterFicWeekly has been released!

No, we mean it this time.

I promise.

Tonight we commence our scintillating and in-depth discussion of the first fifteen chapters of Backward with Purpose by Deadwoodpecker
Harry, Ron, and Ginny send themselves back in time to avoid the destruction of everything they hold dear, and the deaths of everyone they love.

In this episode we investigate Nigerian Goat Trials without a full and complete knowledge of Nigerian law, but we do bring up Bernard.

We also discuss temporal time travel without referencing Star Trek, but we do bring up Twilight.

Our goals for this podcast were to avoid Bagel Wank and/or giving away the plot with multiple spoilers.

We failed on so many levels …

PotterFicWeekly has been released!

Your dedicated hosts planned an efficient and professional summation and analysis of the Chapters 40-56, concluding LavenderBrown’s epic two-part character study.

We vowed to do it without mentioning boobs even once.

Instead, Rinna got a concussion. She broke her leg, lost her dog at the groomers, and dishwashed her cellphone.

Julia brought a magazine, PS fell asleep, and Ryan was electrocuted right there in the middle of the podcast.

This is Episode 72 of PotterFicWeekly.

Episode 71, of PotterFicWeekly has been released!

Tonight’s podcast covers through Chapter 39 of LavenderBrown’s The Final Reckoning!

Welcome back for this long-awaited episode… It was doomed from the start. We tried to record it; something like thirty-seven times. In the end, the Peons took over and performed beautifully.

On topic? You bet. They’re Peons. It’s their mantra.

Interesting and informative? Of course. We learn all about how edible underwear are acceptable as a form of food under Jewish law. And that Tricia must wear flip-flops in public shower stalls for fear of coming in contact with random body fluids.

Poufwanian? Sheesh. Who do you think we are? Listen and learn, people. Draco’s squicky relationship with Pansy, Ron’s fight with the garbage disposal and Hermione’s gun fetish: they’re all in this week’s episode!

(Oh. And we promise no elephants were harmed in the recording of this episode.)

Poufwa Out Of Foreclosure!!!

banner.jpg

Welcome back to PotterFicWeekly! This is Ryan.

First, allow me to quickly answer the most common questions I’ve heard over the past few days.

1) I have not left the fandom.

2) I did not forget to pay the bill.

3) Yes, I noticed the site was down. :)

4) No Mike, I didn’t ban you from Poufwa.

5) No Jen. I didn’t ban you from Poufwa.

Like many of you, I woke early on Wednesday morning to check on Poufwa before heading to work and found PFW, the Poufwa Exchange, and the Poufwa forum listed as suspended by our former webhost. We’ve had issues with our provider for months which resulted in short periods of downtime, but this time I was unable to resolve the issue and needed to immediately find a new home for Poufwa. Due to a busy work schedule and dinner plans on Wednesday, I wasn’t able to start the process until late Wednesday, and due to severe demand from our new web host, the process of transferring our files took much longer than expected.

The whole “three hour podcast” thing finally bit us in the butt!

As of this afternoon, PotterFicWeekly and the Poufwa Exchange are back online. The forum should be back shortly.

This entire experience has solidified for me 1) that we’re a community and 2) that we’re a Poufwa community. Because our staff email accounts went down with the ship, I contacted our hosts via my personal email account to ask them to start relaying information through skype and facebook.

Jen2′s response was my favorite: “Who are you?!?!”

Major kudos to Richard/LonelyRiddle, who was jostled awake last Wednesday by my repeated calls for help and who has talked me through explanations of forum coding and website transfers that I never would have understood otherwise. I have a masters degree in Business Administration. My kingdom for knowledge of mysql!

My thanks to Kismatt, Sueatducksfoot, Jen2, and LadyChi who kept the community together.

Many of you have contacted me over the past few days asking how they can send in donations to assist in maintaining Poufwa. I had never considered accepting donations before as this is my gift to this community and to myself. While the last week did cost money, it was not nearly what it could have been, and there’s zero risk that Poufwa will ever end over financial concerns. That being said, so many generous Poufwanians feel such a strong connection to this community that I will set up a paypal account so members can contribute towards the future costs of maintaining Poufwa.

That said, until the forum comes up, please use this space to keep in touch with each other!

At this time, we would like to apologize profusely to the listeners who reported falling off their treadmills at the gym during the listening of Episode 68. Heh.

Topics on the docket for this evening:

…Susan Bones: Friend or Foe. She’s like Britney Spears. We can’t help ourselves.

…The characterization of Voldemort, Draco Malfoy, and Hermione’s breasts!

…The villification of dear, sweet, June-cleaver Melindaleo. By us.

…We critique Eddie the non-Crane’s burial arrangements. We’re very dark.

…Roundtable on Ron’s first time!

Any feedback/comments/voicemails covering tonight’s podcast or chapters can be emailed directly to ryan@potterficweekly.com. Episode 70 will begin our four podcast series covering The Final Reckoning.

The sequel to The Book of Morgan Le Fey. Ron, Hermione and Harry are going into their seventh year at Hogwarts, determined to defeat Voldemort once and for all.

banner.jpg

Episode 68 of PotterFicWeekly has been released!

Tonight, PotterFicWeekly begins a six-part series covering LavenderBrown’s epic two parter, The Book of Morgan Le Fey and The Final Reckoning!

A sixth year fic told from Ron’s perspective. The Trio return to Hogwarts to learn that Voldemort is hatching an evil plan to kill Muggles. Not only must they try and stop him, Ron must deal with his feelings for Hermione.

The summary doesn’t do it justice. Lavenderbrown tackles plot points from Order that Jo left on the cutting room floor, and creates over 90+ chapters a world where characters are real people, villains are scary, and where victories have costs.

Tonight, we break down the first 15 chapters of The Book of Morgan Le Fey, and even find time to help you plan for college before draw lines in the sand on an important age old question.

Susan Bones – friend or foe?

Any feedback/comments/voicemails covering tonight’s podcast or chapters can be emailed directly to ryan@potterficweekly.com. Episode 69 will cover the balance of The Book of Morgan Le Fey, before we move on to The Final Reckoning in Episode 70.

Episode 67 – Poufwanians on Death Row

Episode 67 of PotterFicWeekly has been released!

Tonight, we proudly conclude our four-part series covering They Shook Hands, a realistic fic by Dethryl! (Revision)

Chapters 7+ of Year 3 are on the docket for review and analysis by our Slytherin-led majority, who cap off the evening with an extended interview with the author, who is coincidentally on pain medication.

I’d like to thank our hosts and guest hosts for incredibly focused discussion over the past four weeks. We’ll try not to do it again.

There was a bit of a Poufwanian glitch in the creation of this episode’s bullet points. I went to type “Mike impersonates McGonagall”, and it came out, “Mike impregnates McGonagall.” As a result, I think it’s best that everyone just listens for themselves. Yes?

Starting next week, PotterFicWeekly begins a six week series covering The Book of Morgan Le Fey and The Final Reckoning by LavenderBrown.

A sixth year fic told from Ron’s perspective. The Trio return to Hogwarts to learn that Voldemort is hatching an evil plan to kill Muggles. Not only must they try and stop him, Ron must deal with his feelings for Hermione.

Any feedback/comments/voicemails for next week’s episode can be emailed directly to ryan@potterficweekly.com. This two-parter is rated R, and while it is available to the public without password, it may not be suitable for younger readers.

The objective: They Shook Hands Year 2 and Year 3, a realistic fic by Dethryl. Chapters 10+ of Year 2 through Chapter 6 of Year 3 (Rewrites Year 2, Year 3).

The premise: Mike is steering the Slytherin ship with Jen2 as first mate!

The goal: Continue our two week streak of classic, on-topic and substantive Poufwa.

The reality: Great conversation about Harry’s decent into darkness, the impact of forced adoption on Muggleborn children, Lucius Malfoy as a realistic role-model, and a canonesque shipper’s surprise thoughts on Dethryl’s universe. And then…

The surprise: Harry’s a crossdresser, Mike and Jen2 swap ships, and there’s something about the continuing adventures of Steve and MaryAnne.

The result: T-backs, Y-fronts, and note that when “Harry tapes It”, It’s capitalized.

The disclaimer: No sign of PS’ breasts this week. Stay tuned. Also, I listened to this episode for the first time and spit water out on my computer. Electrocuting yourself is apparently not a laughing matter.

The most prepared podcaster: Mike by a nose.

Happy listening!

Special Edition 16 – Knickers, Fun Dip, and Happy Holidays

banner.jpg

With Special Edition 16, PotterFicWeekly is pleased to present its second annual extreme-sized holiday podcast!

This is Poufwa, so don’t expect a June Cleaver Christmas. Tina nearly assassinates her children in the first ten minutes while Kezza and I beat each other up on the front lawn. Flamingos were involved.

You will, however, find:

…holiday-themed musical submissions from the PotterFicWeekly community, including How the Chi stole Poufwa, Ryan got run over by a reindeer, and shoutouts from Poufwanians to Poufwanians.

…full-length holiday-themed radio plays written and edited by our Hufflepuff and Ravenclaw members.

…the not-supposed-to-be-recorded podcast afterparty!

…and a bonus episode of the PwnCast of Wrock.

On behalf of PotterFicWeekly, we wish you a safe and very merry holiday season! We could never do this without you!

Happy listening!

The reality: Success!

The unexpected: Mike in his underwear with a lawnmower and what’s-his-face from SpellCast.

The surprise: The Poufwanian Mike most wants to vacation with in the jungles of South America!

The result: The best of classic Poufwa with a liberal dose of wackjob.

The premise: Harry. Is. A. Slytherin….by choice!

The objective: Podcast on Chapters 1-15 of They Shook Hands, a realistic fic by Dethryl! (rewritten Here)

The goal: Substantively examine Slytherin-shaded AU. What if Harry shook Draco’s hand seven years ago?

The reality: When I get substantive, everyone dozes off.

The unexpected: This was the most on-topic episode since Episode 1!

The surprise: Wayne tries out some fancy editing moves behind the scenes.

The result: I sound like I’m broadcasting from the East Room of the White House.

The disclaimer: These chapters will prompt Hufflepuffs to become militant.

Episode 61 of PotterFicWeekly has been released!

The premise: An evening with Ryan, LadyChi, PS, Mike, Kezza, and Anne Walsh!

The objective: Podcast on Chapters 20-37 of Melindaleo’s Power of Emotion!

The goal: Be on topic and don’t offend anyone!

The reality: We can’t walk down the street without walking into a parking meter on a good day.

Episode 60 – Melindaleo: Dining companion, Comment Provider, Roast Victim

melinda_1-copy.jpg

Episode 60 of PotterFicWeekly has been released!

PotterFicWeekly is very pleased to pop a couple of 9 volt batteries into the old heat lamp and welcome Melindaleo, one of our own, back to the hot seat!

Tonight kicks off a five episode series covering both Power of Emotion and its sequel Curse of the Damned. Many of our listeners and hosts, myself included, started our fandom experience with these two fics.

That’s right. It’s all Melinda’s fault.

We attempted to cover Chapters 1-19 of Power of Emotion this evening, but use that as an estimate only. We’ll bounce around even more than usual and we break our spoiler policy many times throughout these episodes.

Harry is struggling to come to terms with the events of his fifth year. Can he learn to depend on those he considers family and become what he needs to be in order to survive? Can the certain sister of a friend show him that there are still things worth fighting for?

In addition to eye-twitching analysis on Hermione Granger: Friend or Foe, Her Majesty Ginny Weasley, death, a recap to Yellowstone, an explanation of the finer points of Facebook, an unprovoked attack on yours truly by a usually euphoric LadyChi, a visit with Mama Huggles, and a call into Jo Rowling – be prepared for an absolute, bare-knuckled, knock-down, drag-out, Hufflepuff-on-Ravenclaw death match between myself and Kezza over a timeless question which will captivate scholars for decades: which one of us does Melinda like better?

Happy listening!

Episode 59 – What Mike’s table, naked Robert, and Her Majesty Hermione have in common

banner.jpg

Episode 59 of PotterFicWeekly has been released!

In this episode, the peons rule. Jen, LadyChi and Rinna have the night off. I’m joined by Robert, Aaron, Sue, Mike and a special guest as we conclude our discussion and analysis of the The Show That Never Ends and the Paradigm of Uncertainty trilogy, covering Chapters 4 through to the conclusion.

They’re the longest chapters in the world. Bring bottled water to the podcast.

We finalize our discussion on the Harry/Hermione ship, the challenges in writing a trilogy over many years, story cohesiveness, last minute twists and turns, and of course – the untold ending.

Poufwa prides itself on being diverse, and speaking as a raging Harry/Ginny fan, I have truly enjoyed every significant glance.

Oh, and Robert’s also naked and there’s a subplot involving Mike’s dining room table. I’m sure it’s nothing.

Speaking of Harry/Ginny – be sure to tune in next week for the launch of our five episode series devoted to Melindaleo’s Power of Emotion and Curse of the Damned!

On PeonCast this evening, the peons discuss A Very Young Girl’s Record of Her Own Impressions, by Eggo Waffles

Ariana Dumbledore shares her thoughts on Oscar Wilde, Nietzsche, and Gellert Grindelwald’s bum. AberforthGoat, AlbusGellert, onesided ElphiasAlbus.

Happy Barn Time!

Episode 58 – Russian aggression, evasive action, and the bosom of Hannah Abbott

banner.jpg

Episode 58 of PotterFicWeekly has been released!

PotterFicWeekly has somewhat turned into PotterFicBiWeekly lately. Rather than buy up that URL and change all the stationary, we’re going to release Episode 59 one week from tonight and just stay on schedule.

This being Poufwa, that should last a week.

In this episode, all the hosts are present! Somewhat. Aaron returns to join Jen, LadyChi, Rinna and me as we remain relatively on topic through our discussion of Chapters 11-15 of Lori’s, The Show That Never Ends and the first three chapters of her final installment, Hero with a Thousand Faces!

In addition, we predict Rinna’s death, I’m nearly assassinated, and LadyChi makes a shocking discovery in her bathtub.

We also brush on religion and politics. In other words, wank free as always!

Many thanks to the wonderful Omly for editing tonight’s episode. Her daughter has begun singing Jen’s ringtone while at home. Add another Poufwanian to the list!

Next week, we will conclude our discussion of Lori’s trilogy before moving on to our five episode series on Melindaleo’s Power of Emotion/Curse of the Damned two-parter. Boats. Everywhere.

On PeonCast this evening, the peons discuss At the Leaky, by Gingerale

No synopsis. I don’t want to spoil the ending.

Happy listening!

Episode 57 – Why we should never, ever podcast at 2:13 in the morning

banner.jpg

Episode 57 of PotterFicWeekly has been released!

Prepare for classic Poufwa. In this episode, your humble hosts gathered together for our ritualistic recording session as prepared as always!

I drank the first batch of coffee to brew and was off the wall.

Jen got sick at the last minute and had to back out.

LadyChi downed some cold medicine. We’ve never had a problem with that before!

Rinna was recovering from a recent assassination attempt and may have been a bit cranky.

Aaron filled in for Jen at the last minute and had a whole six minutes to reread the chapters!

Suffice to say, while that recording will be buried in Poufwa’s special place with the lost version of Episode 8, we did manage to salvage what is probably the best debate on the merits of the Harry/Hermione ship I’ve heard anywhere and it will air at the conclusion of the episode.

Kezza, Sueatducksfoot, Rae, Aaron and I were luckily able to schedule time to rerecord!

…at 12:15 in the morning.

Anyone who tells you that middle-of-the-night podcasts go well is lying to you. Run away from these people.

The later it gets, the less in touch with reality we are, and the more likely I am to quote Star Trek.

Future-Kezza should be immune, you say? Not. So. Much.

Please enjoy our discussion of Chapters 4-10 of Lori’s, The Show That Never Ends!

This week on Peoncast:

The peons tackle Snarry! If the thought of Harry/Snape makes you feel like Jen during her first trimester, this is the episode for you! Bonus points to Kezza and Scott for what has to be my favorite episode of PeonCast yet!

Happy listening!

Episode 56 – Turn around, because Slumlord Jen discovers Haiti and Harry is a guilt…magnet

banner.jpg

Episode 56 of PotterFicWeekly has been released!

In this episode, PotterFicWeekly completes the first novel in our current three-parter, Paradigm of Uncertainty, and pushes ahead through the first three chapters of the second installment, The Show That Never Ends.

No bullet points. Kezza couldn’t stop being struck by lightening long enough for bullet points. Aaron and I couldn’t stop turning around long enough for bullet points. Shiny and Jen couldn’t stop evicting small children from their homes long enough for bullet points.

This week on Peoncast:

Episode 55 – Three hours of significantly glancing, window jumping, real-estate bashing, Ron-dieting Poufwa

banner.jpg

Episode 55 of PotterFicWeekly has been released!

PotterFicWeekly is pleased to kick off our five-week analysis of The Paradigm of Uncertainty trilogy, by Lori! Tonight’s episode covers the first nine chapters of the first fic.

Nine years after graduating from Hogwarts, Charms fellow Hermione Granger again finds herself caught up in Harry Potter’s mysterious life.

That simple summary line fails to do the fic justice. Lori began this fic prior to the release of Goblet of Fire, setting the stage ten years after Hogwarts. Harry and Hermione are still struggling with the loss of Ron at the hands of Voldemort, and are joined by a cast of characters from the canon years, Lori’s imagination, and from just about any fandom you can imagine. Susan B. Anthony shows up at one point or another, as I recall.

I’m a tough, blunt critic. Putting aside wank wars and old, delusional arguments, I would urge anyone who has not done so to read Paradigm of Uncertainty. While I have lots to say, both favorable and critical, it was a truly enjoyable reading experience. The characters are deeply layered and provoked great discussion and thought. I’ve never laughed this hard on a podcast in my life.

Enjoy, and happy listening!

Episode 54 – Dalek Ryan, Assassinated Rinna, Mugged Dan, Funny Melinda, Mommy Jules, Evil Julia, and Jen the Cat

banner.jpg

Episode 54 of PotterFicWeekly has been released!

In this double-length episode, PotterFicWeekly concludes our analysis of With all my Love, by LadyChi! Melinda, Jules, Rinna, Jen, Julia and I will be discussing Chapters 8-23, break for PeonCast, and upon return will bring LadyChi onto the show for a dignified and respectful interview.

Heh.

We will also be discussing:

…what happens when Jen gets bored.
…why Ryan thought Dan was the victim of a hate crime.
…Melinda’s efforts at making a funny.
…Ryan’s 27-minute response time.
…Rinna’s hatred of the Post Office.
…Melinda’s hatred of Harry breastfeeding.
…Jen’s hatred of activity.
…Mike’s hatred of Arthur.
…The assassination of Rinna!
…Arkansas road-sign installation.
…why Julia is evil and must be destroyed at all costs.
…why LadyChi really is just plain mean.
…and yet a very talented writer.

Episode 53 – E coli, Mad Cow, cockroaches, handicapped train conductors, and Chi’s gift of snark

banner.jpg

Episode 53 of PotterFicWeekly has been released!

For the next two weeks, PotterFicWeekly will be discussing With all my Love, by our own LadyChi! Chapters 1-7 are up tonight. We have a double-length episode next week covering the remaining chapters.

James and Lily are falling in love in rough times during their seventh year at Hogwarts. Remus and Sirius must come to terms with what happened during sixth year and desperately try to regain trust in the other.

With James’ parents so outspoken against a rising-to-power Voldemort, it’s only a matter of time before the Dark Lord tries to attack the Potter family. Can James and Lily survive the newness of their love in such a hostile environment? Read and find out!

A Lily who is not a Mary Sue? A Peter Pettigrew…in a Marauder fic…who is not an evil bastard?!?! A clothed Sirius Black who is actually a troubled youth? Say it isn’t so, Chi! There’ll be nothing for Rinna, Jen, Tina, Mike, PS and me to talk about! How could you do this to us? Nothing at all!

Aside from:

…Required family naming rituals.
…A word from our resident Jew!
…Terrorist cockroaches.
…Dogs and suitcases.
…Jen’s disease of the week and a visit to Dr. Rinna!
…Narcissa Malfoy: Friend or Foe?
…Peter Pettigrew: Friend or Foe?
…LadyChi: Friend or Foe?
…Eyebrows: Friend or Foe? (around this point no one can be trusted!)
…five attempts to explain sarcasm and snark to Mike using Chi as an example.
…MPreg Childbirth: The Untold Story
…Mike’s secret plan to force Jen to name her child Ryan.

This week on Peoncast:

Not as a Last Resort by Arabella

Episode 52 – Anne Walsh, Bea Arthur, and the land of the talking chipmunks

banner.jpg

Episode 52 of PotterFicWeekly has been released!

Tears of the Phoenix is an orginization which has taken the tallents of Harry Potter fanfic writers and fan artists and organized them into a beautiful anthology inspired by New Orleans librairans. Buy a copy of “Ripple Effect” to support the libaries destroyed by Hurricane Katrina.

In our final Living with Danger episode, we’re all over the map. Chi, Rinna, Scott, and I join Anne Walsh in discussing the final chapters of her first installment. It’s difficult to hear your own story discussed in a format like ours, and due to the circumstances it’s even more difficult to be in the room and ungagged while we’re doing it. Anne was a sport. Ten points to Ravenclaw!

Chi was also sucked up by a tornado and Canada lost power. Mickey Mouse was involved, as was the Second Circuit Court of Appeals. It’s Poufwa. Roll with it.

After a rather polarizing episode of Peoncast, where the Kezza, Jen2 and PS discuss by Elemental, by Purple Fluffy Cat:

A remarkable man such as Albus Dumbledore commanded devotion from several people. How was his magic woven? What will become of those who remain after him as they seek solace in one another? This is tale of Air, Earth, Fire and Water.

…we return with a second full episode of PotterFicWeekly! After being blindfolded, gagged, and thrown in the trunk of Anne’s car, I podcast live from Dangerverse Central! There were talking animals everywhere. I think I saw a lemur! Anne and Dangerverse regulars Josh and Brit join me in exploring one of the many communities created by fan fiction and the lives still being affected by Jo Rowling a year after she put down her pen.

Next week we return with a two part series on With all my Love, a fic by our own LadyChi. Check it out! We cover the first seven chapters next week!

James and Lily are falling in love in rough times during their seventh year at Hogwarts. Remus and Sirius must come to terms with what happened during sixth year and desperately try to regain trust in the other. With James? parents so outspoken against a rising-to-power Voldemort, it?s only a matter of time before the Dark Lord tries to attack the Potter family. Can James and Lily survive the newness of their love in such a hostile environment? Read and find out!

Episode 51 – Banished women, Mensa pyramids, duct-taped authors, and Mike predicts

banner.jpg

Episode 51 of PotterFicWeekly has been released!

In our third Living with Danger episode, the women fail us and Scott, Mike and I are forced to spray PotterFicWeekly down with testosterone in order to survive. Despite all that, we analyze Chapters 24-37 with organizational skill and preparation unequaled in our previous sixty-five episodes!

I wonder why.

Anne Walsh, author of the Dangerverse series, thought it would be really entertaining to listen in on this episode’s recording session. I must only assume that PBS was really, really boring that night. We were thrilled to have her, although as it wasn’t time for her interview and due to the many benefits of our aforementioned testosterone-only policy, Anne was duct-taped to her chair in the far corner and was provided with Chi’s Mach 1 microphone for this podcast.

In tonight’s episode, we discuss:

…Sue the Grocer and Ron: The Dynamic Duo
…pack kids vs. the twins: Not even a fair fight.
…pack kids versus the Pack adults: Even less of a fair fight.
…why Snape should really avoid using heavy machinery of any kind.
…whether Petunia Dursley is a neglectful parent or just a misunderstood community pillar.
…whether Severus Snape is a self-centered bastard or just socially awkward.
…why the hell we’re debating Petunia and Snape.
…Mike’s English accent.
…Weasley hair, the Pack’s decision making process, and why they need a Witness-Protection-Program planner.
…Ryan’s prediction as to where the Canonverse and Dangerverse split. Please cover your children’s ears on that one!

It was around that point that Mike crashed the show into a prophetic tree. We continue to miss the women and have flowers waiting upon their return.

Depending on my level of ambition, you may see two more standard episodes on the Dangerverse series or a big-honking episode containing our breakdown of the final chapters, interview with Anne, and visit to Dangerverse Central!

This week on Peoncast:

Falling Free, by Alecto

Intoxication. Nobody is quite himself during the full moon. Sometimes we do things we shouldn’t have done. Sometimes it keeps us alive.

Episode 49 – What ass-donuts, butt-babies, and Jen’s toilet have in common

banner.jpg

Episode 49 of PotterFicWeekly has been released!

This episode begins our five episode series on Living with Danger, by Anne Walsh.

Lone wolf. Dream-seer. Bright child. Scarred child. Singer. Prisoner. Dancer child. Dragon child. Eight semi-ordinary people. One extraordinary family, and how they became one.

Having completed the story and started on the sequel, this is the first time I ran across that summary. I truly wish this I read it prior to starting Chapters 1-10 for tonight’s episode. I believe it captures the quality and essence of the story far better than the one I read.

Her landlady married a dog and had his baby. Her little sister is far too smart. She helped to steal two little boys, one with a famous scar, and her husband is a werewolf. Her name is Danger. This is her story. o-)

Living with Danger has passed the threshold from story to universe, becoming a cult-classic within the fandom while pushing the limits of community and imagination. You can expect our analysis (often even on-topic!!) of the fifty-chapter first installment (often with Anne in the room with us!), the interview, and something special to cap off the series over the next several weeks.

Just a warning – Episode 49 is an extreme edition of our podcast, meaning that everything including the soundcheck is in here.

For those of you who are new to our podcast for the Dangerverse series who haven’t listened to our podcast before, you can get a feel for the show by listening to this recap episode.

This week on Peoncast:

Horace Slughorn and the Cauldron of Secrets, by The Plaid Slytherin

Episode 48 – Her Majesty HWhimsey, Her Fangirl LadyChi, and the Blue Light Special

banner.jpg

Episode 48 of PotterFicWeekly has been released!

Twice.

As our fourth and final installment covering HWhimsey’s Coven of Echoes was too graphic to release over the standard feed, the following version of our podcast contains only our interview with HWhimsey. The chapter discussion and Peoncast are not included.

An uncut edition of tonight’s podcast, including our analysis of Chapters 20 through the epilogue, the interview with HWhimsey, and an R-rated version of Peoncast is available in the Restricted Section of the PotterFicWeekly forum. If you are over eighteen and would like access, all you need to do is register for an account and email ryan@potterficweekly.com, confirming that you are over the age of eighteen, your username and requesting access to the Restricted Section of our forum.

Next week, we begin our four episode series devoted to Living with Danger of the Dangververse series, starting off with discussion of Chapters 1-10. A early screening of this episode will be held Saturday, June 29, 2008 at 8 PM EST on PFW Radio, home of Pwncast and Wizard Rock.

Happy listening!

Episode 47 – Mike is a Rinna Disbelieving, Animal Non-Seeing, Ryan Substituting, Star Wars Virgin

banner.jpg

Episode 47 of PotterFicWeekly has been released!

Let me set this episode up for you. Jen and Chi had the night off. It was set to be just the peons and me. At the last minute I had to bail, and Rinna agreed to return to the podcast a bit early and take the reins. I told her the chapters to cover, gave her a big hug, but forgot to explain to her about this guy named Mike we discovered who had unique perspectives and questions on everything.

Heh.

In our third of four installments covering HWhimsey’s Coven of Echoes , Rinna, PS, Tina and Mike analyze Chapters 15 through to the infamous Chapter 19, hitting on such importance concepts as wizarding fashion, old men in Star Wars, and the hotness factor of the dude from CSI. Believe it or not, they’re still incredibly on-topic. *Tips hat*

Later in PeonCast, the peons discuss SIYE’s 2007 Dumbledore Silver Trinket Award winning Minding the Baby by kschneyer:

Andromeda is left alone with Teddy, or so she thinks.

We will conclude our discussion of Coven of Echoes with Episode 48 and our sitdown with HWhimsey before we move on to the Dangerverse series. Episode 48 will likely be released exclusively to the 18 and over Restricted Section at the PotterFicWeekly forum.

PotterFicWeekly Team Launches New Podcast!

poufwa11.png

For the past eighteen months, the PotterFicWeekly community has been a notable exception within the Harry Potter fandom. We get along well and genuinely enjoy each other’s company. Please take a moment to process this information and compose yourselves.

After releasing hundreds and hundreds of hours of fan fiction analysis about a single fandom and the same core set of characters reliving similar circumstances, I understand that we will at one point say all there is to say. Fortunately, our community has a few other topics to touch on before turning out the lights. The Poufwa Exchange represents an opportunity to explore dozens of new genres. Hardcore members and newcomers alike can exchange their favorite TV shows, movies, books, and fan fiction. We’ll watch together and record commentaries, or will debate and discuss with the professionalism you’ve come to expect. This is our podcast, but it’s also yours. Listen along, but be sure to participate. As much as we want to relive our favorites, we want to try new things.

Tonight, we have recorded a commentary for the pilot episode of Heroes, and welcome Richard of Poufwa fame to the show. We believe he’s caught an episode or two.

Happy listening!

Episode 46: Harry’s an epileptic, Melinda separates sex from occlumency, and I smell a tornado

banner.jpg

Episode 46 of PotterFicWeekly has been released!

Please forgive our sound quality this week. One of us was podcasting from inside a tornado. Guess who!

In our second of four installments covering Coven of Echoes by HWhimsey, we are joined by Melindaleo and PwnCast’s Dan as we review chapters seven through fourteen. We laugh, Jen cries, Chi explains the difficulty of stopping, and Melinda almost ends up drunk on my lawn!

This week, the peons discuss Maps to the Stars’ Homes by LizBee.

After the war, Harry buys a plane ticket and leaves, but the memories follow.
PG-13, post-HBP, quite gennish.

Happy listening!

Episode 45: Tamsyn is a dominatrix, Jen2 is inebriated, and everybody loves Bob

banner.jpg

Episode 45 of PotterFicWeekly has been released!

We, the hosts, peons and staff of PotterFicWeekly wish to dedicate this episode to Bob, Squirrel King.

This episode is our first of four installments covering Coven of Echoes by HWhimsey.

Twenty-five year old Healer Ginny Weasley is in for the ultimate mystery when a patient’s mysterious scars lead her to a long-guarded secret surrounding a dangerous and deadly force. She must now work with the Aurors, including ex-boyfriend Harry, to solve the mystery before it’s too late.

It’s an H/G fic and PS loves it. Think about that. We’re also not promising anything, but we sense Harry’s wearing leather.

In addition to covering the first six chapters in this half extreme edition, half peon takeover, and all around very late yet wicked funny episode, we:

…discover more information regarding the secret identity of our favorite Horace Slughorn fangirl, and why I should look over my shoulder before leaving the house in the morning.

…celebrate two new Poufwanians for which we’re considering starting fan clubs!

…learn an enormous amount of information regarding Australian dumpsters and why living green will kill Kezza!

This week, the peons discuss Willpower 3: Understanding by ChreeChree.

The night of Dumbledore’s death is a difficult one for Ginny. All she wants is to be with Harry. HBP missing moment.

Please keep Richard, our head peon, in your thoughts during this week’s podcast. He’s a Harmonian.

Happy listening!

Special Edition 14 – A Conversation with Viridian

PotterFicWeekly is pleased to present Special Edition #14, a conversation with Viridian. We’d like to thank Matthew (and his wife!) for sitting down to speak with us and for their feedback over the past five weeks. Please enjoy!

Next week, our four-week discussion of The Coven of Echos begins. Happy reading!

Episode 44: Chi’s a hooker, Kezza’s ancient, and Huggles is very upset

banner.jpg

Episode 44 of PotterFicWeekly has been released!

Strap on your grumpy pants and hide your children! The following is a LadyChi production.

In this episode, LadyChi is joined by the gang from PeonCast and welcomes Etai to the show for the first of what will hopefully be many guest-hosting gigs.

Chi has proved from her first week in the big chair that her episodes are enormously entertaining! If you listen very carefully you can actually hear the wheels come off the wagon as the Poufwa mobile veers into not-really-scary-yet-terrifying movies, tongue twisters, and even makes a trip to YellowStone where we all learn a valuable lesson about parenthood.

After that, they discuss Chapters 31-35 of Harry Potter and the Nightmare of Future’s Past, by Viridian, which will conclude our coverage of a fic that made us think harder than ever before while similtaneously making bagels a four letter word. Our interview with Viridian didn’t make the cut and will be released as a special edition early next week. The truth about Draco’s career as a time-traveler will finally be revealed!

Whatever you do, don’t miss PeonCast this week. Somewhere between song hour and discussion of Open at the Close by DQBunny, Mike makes a terrifying discovery.

Comments are welcome. You can email or send voice files to ryan@potterficweekly.com, or you can call 781-352-0643.
Happy listening!

Episode 43: Julia’s in the dryer, Dumbledore’s a leprechaun, and Jen’s under arrest

banner.jpg

Episode 43 of PotterFicWeekly has been released!

In this episode, I’m joined by Jen, the other Jen, LadyChi, and Julia as we discuss Chapters 23-30 of Harry Potter and the Nightmare of Future’s Past, by Viridian. I believe we had a full moon during the recording of this episode. It’s the only way to explain it. If you think I’m overstating matters, listen to the last three minutes. Ten house points if you’re reminded of another Harry Potter podcast.

We’ll conclude our five part series next week with a discussion of Chapters 31-35 and a conversation with Viridian. If you have comments for Viridian, you can email them to ryan@potterficweekly.com and we can play them at the conclusion of our episode. You can also leave a voicemail by calling 781-352-0643.

Our coverage of the first six chapters of The Coven of Echoes begins in two weeks.

On PeonCast this week, our peons cover A Distinctly Different Manner of Finding Prince Charming

Happy listening!

Episode 42: Harry is committing tax fraud, Molly Weasley is Mother of the Year, and bagels

banner.jpg

Episode 42 of PotterFicWeekly has been released!

It continues to be your glass.

In this episode, I’m joined by Jen, PS, Mike, and Tina, with Mac bringing up the rear. We discuss Chapters 17-22 of Harry Potter and the Nightmare of Future’s Past, by Viridian, and because I uncharacteristically read ahead there are light spoilers for future chapters. Don’t expect it to become a habit.

We get logistical updates on Jen’s mailbox and Season 3 of BattleStar Galactica on DVD, call the Department of Social Services on Molly, and I completely nail the secret ending to Nightmares, once again proving that Pansy the Garden Gnome was not a fluke.

On PeonCast this week, our peons cover Dumbledore’s Army Drabble Series by Kaymbee

The relationships between the members of the DA fascinate me. These came out of wanting a bit more background on each character than I could fit in the actual fic I’m writing. It amazes me that these kids spent 7 years together, four in moderate peace, one year learning to be soldiers, one on the edge of a knife and the last fighting a secret war, and we have no idea how they feel about each other. These are all separate, but they go together. All PG, all DH spoilers, all rough and un-beta-ed.

Category: DH-time period
Characters: DA Members (Lavender, Parvati, Michael, Susan etc.)
Genres: Angst
Warnings: none
Rating: PG

Two more episodes on Nightmares and an interview with Viridian to come.

Happy listening!

Episode 41: Arbor Harbors, Inbred Cousins, and Snape is a Dumbledore Fangirl

banner.jpg

Episode 41 of PotterFicWeekly has been released! It’s either six days late from last week or really early for this week. It’s your glass.

In this episode, I’m joined by Jen, LadyChi, Meg (in her last episode!), and Cody as we discuss Chapters 11-16 of Harry Potter and the Nightmare of Future’s Past, by Viridian. We pick up where our discussion left off last week, getting deeper into Viridian’s Harry and the effect his journey has on his friends and his own soul.

That’s around the point Meg discovers that Jo Rowling has been playing a cruel joke on her all this time.

Hide your children.

Speaking of hiding your children, the peons return this week to discuss Witch Weekly: Ten Sure-Fire Ways to Cure the Common Cold, by goingbacktosquareone, otherwise known as our own Jen2. In the event that you’re confused by the story, Mike is here to walk you through it.

You can also find video from my summit with Jen in NYC right here.

Episode 40: Harry Potter is, in fact, not LadyChi, but Jen is a proud lesbian

banner.jpg

Episode 40 of PotterFicWeekly has been released!

For the next five episodes, we will be reading and analyzing Harry Potter and the Nightmare of Future’s Past, by Viridian.

The War is over and Voldemort is finally dead. Too bad there’s no one left to celebrate. Harry risks everything, even returning Voldemort to life, for a chance to go back and do it right this time.

We often cover fics where everyone loves absolutely everything, and the meat of the conversation is over after six minutes. Nightmares is one of those stories that has left five podcasters with about six different opinions. The season of debate begins right now.

In tonight’s episode, we discuss the first ten chapters of Nightmares, from Harry the manipulator to his true identity to the controversy over his relationship with Ginny. Chi and I also have a screaming match, I refer to Star Trek eighteen times, and Jen has an affair with my woman.

Everyone’s favorite peons also return this week to discuss the one-shot Listen To Your Heart. It’s a slight downer. You’ll need to bring your own funny.

Happy reading, and stay tuned later in the week for PotterFicWeekly: The Movie!

Episode 39: Jen’s a pirate, the peons are casting, and PS is going to die

banner.jpg

With the release of Episode 39, the second season of PotterFicWeekly has officially begun!!!

Over the next year, our merry band of lunatics plans to cover at least eleven fics, up from the four last year. I don’t mean that in the, “We’re leaving out all of the verbs to cram it in!” sense. I mean it in the, “Yes, we really are that stupid but can still wipe ourselves” sense.

Towards that end, stay tuned for our ramblings on Harry Potter and the Nightmare of Future’s Past, the full Paradigm of Uncertainty triology, Living with Danger, The Coven of Echoes, The Book of Morgan le Fey, The Final Reckoning, and With all my Love, to name but a few.

Twelve more months of Jen’s disasters, Chi’s red pen, and my futile attempts to maintain some type of order.

Can you feel it?

Given how much content we have coming, we thought we’d take a bit a break tonight and do a single episode on a true American classic: Naked Quidditch Match, by Anya. If you’ve read this fic, you know why it was selected by our forum members. If you haven’t read it, I’ll give you this hint:

Harry. Voldemort. eMail. Lawyers.

Okay, four hints. I’m a big fat liar.

Starting this season, the peons are in full revolt. Starting with this episode, with great intimidation, I present PeonCast: a brief, weekly podcast planned, produced, and recorded exclusively by all of the peons you know and love, including a few new voices.

Without the peons, Jen, Chi, and I would actually have to work for a living, and I can only hope they’ll be more gracious to us on their show than we are to them on ours.

I know. I doubt it, too.

In their pilot episode this evening, the peons will be discussing Seventeen Minutes till Midnight in Casablanca by Laura Laurent1.

Next week, we jump into a five week series on Harry Potter and the Nightmare of Future’s Past by Viridian, and will be discussing the first ten chapters.

Happy reading!

Special Edition 13 – Previously on PotterFicWeekly!

banner.jpg

It may be a mere nineteen days behind schedule, but PotterFicWeekly is pleased to present our season finale!

In starting this project, the hosts and I expected to get together once a week and behave like a bunch of Harry Potter geeks. We accomplished that goal very well, don’t get me wrong, but something else happened. We’ve gotten together every single day since then, and we’ve behaved like a family. Literally. Two parts love. One part bickering. One part restraining order.

On the surface, our first fifty episodes represent our analysis and discussion of four well-written fics, the films, and the final year of the Harry Potter canon. Beyond that, they represent the laughter, struggles, and lives of everyone who puts this show together. You can’t spend dozens of hours per week on a project like this without leaving a piece of yourself behind, and I would like to dedicate the season finale of PotterFicWeekly to our members, our listeners, and the staff members who made this project into so much more than it ever meant to be.

This episode is the largest and longest podcast Poufwa has ever released, and for us that’s really saying something. This episode contains every single memorable moment from the first fifty episodes of PotterFicWeekly. I truly mean that. I’ve listened to it thirty-eight times! Everything is in there!

Whether you’re a hardcore fan, an occasional listener, or have never listened to the podcast before, this is episode captures the spirit of what it means to be a Poufwanian. And yes, that does involve erectile dysfunction and tribal warriors.

Happy listening, and don’t miss the launch of our second season next week. You can find our second season schedule right here.

Episode 38: Jen’s pants, Chi’s drugs, and John McCain

banner.jpg

Episode 38 of PotterFicWeekly has been released!

PotterFicWeekly is pleased to present our final episode on The Shoebox Project, covering Chapters 21a-25b. We discuss the Remus, Sirius and runny noses, the nobility of Snape, James and Lily in the bathroom, GPS devices, bats on leashes, and where the hell the male peons are so cowardly hiding.

We also proudly present episode two of MasterFic Theatre, a Shoebox Project audio play. It includes Brooklyn accents, fear of sex, and lots of talk about urges and pamphlets.

Following that, the PotterFicWeekly forum presents me with an audio birthday gift. I am apparently both beloved and British.

Happy listening, and please join us next week for our season finale, highlighting the best moments of the first season of PotterFicWeekly! PotterFicWeekly Season 2 is scheduled to launch on February 14th. This is so exciting!

banner.jpg

Episode 37 of PotterFicWeekly has been released!

In our very late fourth installment on The Shoebox Project, we review Chapters 16-20 while declaring war on the Post Office, rationalizing why there’s a dead bird on Jen’s bed, and explaining what happened to LadyChi when she refused to pay a traffic citation.

In addition to the normal Poufwanian craziness, this episode features a special birthday gift I received from Ravenclaw House. Thank you so much!

Episode 36: Titanic: The Touchy-Feely French Tart Movie

banner.jpg

Episode 36 of PotterFicWeekly has been released!

In this, our third installment on The Shoebox Project, I took a week off and left Jen in charge.

Yes, that’s correct. I. left. Jen. in. charge.

In this episode, she is joined by LadyChi, Meg, Robert, (from Spellcast?) Richard and Mike from the Poufwa forum for a discussion of Chapters 11-15.

In this episode, our hosts discuss…

*Jen’s favorite Christmas gift, which involves a GPS system, a cop, and a puppy.
*why both Jen and Mike hate the United States Post Office.
*how Shoebox nails childhood and life.
*Peter Pettigrew: Nature versus Nurture
*cooties
*Mike’s uncanny ability to cut to the heart of all of the subtle plot developments in this fic, including the Peter/James; Remus/Sophie romance.
*that random pole in Jen’s bedroom.
*denial over one’s true feelings, obsession with your crush’s crush, and boobs.
*the difference between boys and girls, Dumbledore the matchmaker, and Titanic!
*pants for twenty minutes.

After there, the wheels pretty much come off the wagon.

Happy listening!

Joint Podcast #1 – Spellcast visits Poufwania for Quaffle Talk

PotterFicWeekly’s first joint podcast has been released!

In this New Year’s Eve episode, released a mere seven days late, Jen and I join the Spellcast and Quaffle Talk crews to discuss 2007 – the most exciting year in the Harry Potter fandom so far – and what you can expect from our podcasts in 2008!

We hope you enjoy this joint podcast, and we hope we can do many more of them over the coming year. Please check out both Spellcast and Quaffle Talk if you haven’t already done so!

Special Edition #12 – A Very Poufwa Christmas

banner.jpg

Special Edition #12 has been released! Our five-podcasts-in-five-six-days series is now completed!

In this episode, you’ll hear from the people who make PotterFicWeekly the enormous success that it is – it’s forum members.

It’s been a difficult year for many of us on the production end of Poufwa, and I know you’ll agree that what you hear in this episode justifies the investment of time and hard work. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – what began as a small community serving a podcast has quickly become a podcast serving a small community.

I couldn’t be more pleased.

We hope you enjoy this episode, and we’ll see you all again in mid-January. Congratulations as well to Jen2 for winning the PFW Yule Ball fic competition. Be sure to catch a reading at the end of this episode.

Happy listening!

PS – here are the photos I promised to upload for this episode. NO POINTS to those of you who can correctly guess what year I was benadryled.

While we had them in the studio, we also touched upon geography, political trivia, local weather conditions, world history, the Little Mermaid, Northampton, Massachusetts, stupid walls and cat food.

The Yule Ball, and Happy Holidays

As part of my New Year’s resolution going into 2007, I posted the following on my personal blog.

I will stop being an observer who samples from different plates. I will choose a direction and accomplish something.

It was shortly after I made that statement that I thought about creating a fan fiction podcast. I knew virtually nothing about the fandom, didn’t have any contacts, and knew nothing about producing a quality podcast. (One could argue I still don’t.) This project has been so successful for me personally because I never expected anything in return. I don’t care about the fandom itself. I could care less if five people or five thousand people are listening. It’s not meant to be stressful. It’s not work. The day it’s no longer fun, I’m absolutely out of here.

I don’t see that happening for quite a while because of the people I’ve met and the bonds I’ve formed over the past ten months. I never imagined I’d make friends doing this, and yet Jen, Chi, Meg and I are extremely close. We’ve been together such a short time, but it’s been an undeniable rollercoaster and I wouldn’t trade them for anything. The community that’s come together is literally that. It’s not a meeting place for occasional visitors to talk shop. It’s family. I never imagined that this project would be less about the content and more about the community, but it’s happened, and I could never recreate the conditions that brought these hundreds of people together. We’re friends, and we’ll continue to be friends long after we put Harry back up on a shelf. The outpouring of kindness we’ve encountered over the past year truly gives me a lot of faith in the power of strangers.

I am pleased to announce that PFW’s first Yule Ball will commence in the forum on Friday, December 14th at 2PM. If you’re not yet a member of the community, we’d love to welcome you to the group. This is a party from the members for the members. On behalf of the hosts, we wish you a safe and happy holiday season. This one’s from us.

Episode 33 of PotterFicWeekly has been released!

Our A Year Like None Other series winds to a close with this double-sized episode of PotterFicWeekly. On every other podcast, that means up to 90 minutes.

Heh.

In this episode, Dan and Julia from the PFW forum stop by to bring us up to speed on their upcoming wizard rock podcast, we compare and contrast Chi’s slow-talking nurse practitioner to Jen’s artistic butt doctor, wrap our AYLNO discussion, ask Jen the same question three times, and meet Aspen! As this episode runs nearly five hours, you can download the standard episode segment and the Aspen/Mercredi interview separately.

Stay tuned over the next few weeks as we release special edition commentary podcasts for the rest of the Harry Potter films, and don’t miss our upcoming series on The Shoebox Project, by Ladyjaida and Dorkorific, debuting December 12th!

The PotterFicWeekly Halloween Special Edition has arrived!

Two episodes in four hours. That’s it. I’m taking a week off.

Join Jen, LadyChi, Meg, Melindaleo, Tina, LonelyRiddle, and me for the type of indepth and laser-focused discussion that you’ve come to expect from PotterFicWeekly. 

In this episode, we:

*  determine who is important and who is a peon.
*  check in on LadyChi’s toilet and make her apologize for scaring us in Episode 31.
*  interview Tina on meeting Jo for three full seconds. 
*  complain about Tina’s husband.
*  analyze the role of Halloween in the books and fanfic.
*  find out what everyone wore for Halloween.
*  find out exactly why Melinda is hoping you don’t listen to this episode.
*  hear narrations of the top two one-shots introduced in the Halloween Ball.
*  debut MasterFic Theater, Episode 1.  And yes, that is the sound of theme music being played over a stereo next to an air condition.  NOT!

Jen, LadyChi and I are pleased to introduce guest-host Mike (OsRavan from the Poufwa forum), who graciously agreed to stand in for a highly medicated Meg as we pushed our discussion to Chapter 74 of A Year Like None Other, by Aspen in the Sunlight. Thanks Mike!

We will conclude our series on AYLNO in two weeks time, at which point we will crank out a very efficient and orderly movie commentary before moving onto The ShoeBox Project.

That’s all I got. Oh yeah. Stay three steps away from LadyChi in this one.

Episode 30 – Ryan cracks the case: Pansy is a garden gnome

banner.jpg

Episode 30 of PotterFicWeekly has been released!

With four episodes to go in our A Year Like None Other series, our hopelessly off-topic team covers up to Chapter 66 with our unique mix of indepth analysis and completely off-topic banter. Episode bullets will follow, although expect to see a great deal of time devoted to my predictions for Chapter 67. And yes, it does involve a garden gnome. :)

Don’t miss the Halloween Ball on our forum from Friday October 26 – Sunday October 28! We’ll be releasing a special Halloween edition on the 31st, and stay tuned for our Chamber of Secrets commentary.

Happy listening!

Episode 29 – Huggles, English Muffins, and Jen feels like a woman

banner.jpg

After six delays, Episode 29 of PotterFicWeekly has been released!

In this quasi-extreme episode, we discuss Chapters 51-58 of A Year Like None Other, by Aspen in the Sunlight. I don’t even need to tell you that we go off-topic, but do know that during the 20-25 minutes of solid fic discussion, we’re on the ball, so don’t miss it.

Despite the fact that she’s our Head of Ravenclaw House, I’d like to give very special thanks to LadyChi for her outstanding Gryffindor bravery shown throughout this episode. We love you Chi! (Even though the last thirty seconds do demonstrate you have some anger management issues to address whenever convenient.) Additional thanks to Shiny from the forums for the hours of editing work she invested into this episode, and to SpellCast Robert and SpellCast Josh for…well….everything. Find them here.

I have to say that this is my favorite episode so far, although Episode 30 is coming out soon, so jump in fast.

Episode 26 of PotterFicWeekly has been released!

In our fourth installment on A Year Like None Other, by Aspen in the Sunlight, Jen, Phil, Meg, and I pull out all of the stops for our discussion of Chapters 30-38. In addition to our in-depth, articulate and gripping analysis and review of those chapters, we also manage to offend Texas, Canadian fiber optics, and answer those two big questions you’ve all been pondering:

Who is holding the lantern, and why did Jen pass out in her chicken?

Here are the visual aids we promised. I hope they make sense to you regardless of whether you’ve listened.
