This is just a little post to let you all know that I have retired from making podfic.

I  am no longer going to record fics. I'm just too tired of all the hateful messages and unsolicited criticism. It's no longer fun anymore. 

I've spent hundreds and hundreds of hours making podfics and it kills my spirit every time I get hate.

So I'm not going to spend one more second doing something that no longer gives me joy. I'm quitting now so that I don't rage quit fandom all together. I still want to enjoy fic and my friends. I still want to archive and listen to podfic and get joy from it. 

To the authors that I've asked for permission, I'm so very sorry I never got to make your thing. Thank you so much for being open to podfic and giving me and others the opportunity to record your work.

To my auction winners who are due podfic. I will be paypal'ing you a refund as soon as my tax return gets to me in a few weeks time. I'm really sorry I couldn't fulfill those for you.

Thanks to everyone that has been cool with me. I've made some great friends, and I'm not going anywhere. 

<3 Jinxy

It breaks my heart a little to hear this. People suck. For the record, I think you did an amazing job, but more than that, you were yourself doing it, and that's something to be proud of.

I'm glad you're not going anywhere.

I just noticed the note on your last little podficlet and came here to see what's going on. I'm so sorry. I always hate to hear that fandom negativity has taken the joy out of something for anyone, but you're absolutely correct: there's no point in putting all that work into something if it isn't making you happy. Or if the unhappiness is cancelling out the joy of it, which I think is much sadder, really. People. They're the worst.

I am glad I got to know you a little because of your podfic work, though, and that you still plan on being around. You're one of the few Teen Wolf people I've actually interacted with (Tumblr, oy!) and I'd hate to lose touch.
