I was unfortunately unable to find images for these ladies, but they are no less awesome: Cathy Burton (Macdonald Hall), Diane Grant (Macdonald Hall), Cottia (The Eagle of the Ninth [book]), Sarungani Temaida (Tortall), Julia Vorlightly (Vorkosigan)
I had a couple spaces left over at the end, so even though these ladies weren't on my character list, I included them anyway (also I'm sad they weren't on the list, because they are also awesome): Belle (Beauty and the Beast), Willow Rosenberg (Buffy the Vampire Slayer), River Tam (Firefly), Robin Scherbatsky (How I Met Your Mother), Elizabeth Weir (Stargate Atlantis), Natasha Romanoff (The Avengers), Elizabeth Burke (White Collar), Diana Barrigan (White Collar)
And there's also a few surprise!pictures mixed in there! See if you can spot them ;) (The #SpiritOfParaka pic doesn't count! XP)
As a side note: aside from the surprise!pics, all these images were found through Google Image search, and it is truly depressing to me how many of the searches had the #1 suggested related search as "[character name] hot". Let's celebrate these women without objectifying them, unlike Google Image search, guys! <3
In addition to celebrating the awesome female characters from our fandoms, we want to celebrate the awesome fans who create works about them, including our authors, podficcers, visual artists, betas, and mods.
Besides making the cover, bessyboo did the heavy lifting of compiling these files as a podbook, and she helped organize this anthology along with sophinisba, myself, and last year's organizer podklb. We owe a huge debt of gratitude to knight_tracer and heard_the_owl for their work on ordering the stories and smoothing out the volume across many different recording setups. Thanks also to themusecalliope for additional beta work.
Links to the text of the fics, where you can celebrate the awesome authors, are included in the Comments section of all the mp3 files.
If you'd like to leave feedback for some or all of the readers in this collection, please comment on this post! Several of these readers made their very first podfics for this project, and we are thrilled to welcome them to the podfic community. You can also follow them to their individual journals to find more of their work:
