Today's questions focus on fanworks you've already made and will help partners become more familiar with each others' work.

  1. Share a piece of a fanwork you're particularly proud of (a page or so of a written work, a few minutes of an audio work) and explain why you're proud of it.

  2. Read/listen to your partner's shared fanwork, and give feedback about what works for you about it.


This is our last icebreaker. We hope that groups have found them informative and helpful! Remember, the first check in is on June 24th but, as always, you're welcome to contact the mods at any time for any reason.

Today's questions dig a little deeper into what makes group work work or not work for each person, and then goes on to begin (or continue!) the conversation about options for collaboration on each part of your project. There are also a couple of questions that touch on emergency planning.

  1. Tell your partner about a good and a bad group work experience you've had, either in fandom or at school or work (or other). What made the good one good? What made the bad one bad? What did you learn about yourself and what makes group work successful for you?

  2. Suggest ways that the podficcer might be involved in the writing process that would work well for you.

  3. Suggest ways that the writer might be involved in the podficcing process that would work well for you.

  4. Sometimes life emergencies arise. Make an emergency plan!
    • How many days without communication between your team do you think should be limit before someone reaches out to the mods to tell them a teammate is MIA?
    • Are there any alternate ways of contacting you that you'd like your partner(s) to have?
    • If an emergency does arise, what would be your preferred way of dealing with it? Bringing on another team member to help out with writing/sound effects/editing/etc? Dropping out (and telling the mods ASAP so a pinch hitter can be found for your partner)? Having a less intensive back-up project idea in mind to switch to if needed? If you're the podficcer, recording a draft early so that if you lose your voice or are otherwise unable to record later on, you have an emergency back-up recording you can edit? What other thoughts or ideas about this do you have?

Today's ice breaker questions are about how you view your fanworks and how you and your partner(s) can mesh those ideas.


  1. Why do you create fanworks? What does it mean to you?

  2. Talk about your process as a writer or a podficcer. How do you go about creating your art?

  3. What are some ideas you have for how this collaboration could be specifically created for voice/audio? (You can see this post for some possibilities to start with or look here to see what past participants have done.)

  4. What wishes and expectations do you have in how your fanwork is treated? If you have a blanket statement/dear author letter/other policy, you may want to link your partner to it and discuss it. If you don't have one, you may decide to create one, perhaps through discussion with your partner. More info about these types of statements can be found at these links: Pondering Transformative Works, Blanket Permission, and Transformation in General by [personal profile] fire_juggler, you can see numerous examples of permission statements on Fanlore and here's a post about Dear Author Letters.

Day 2's icebreaker questions are related to group work!

  1. What strengths will you bring to the group?

  2. What may make you difficult to work with? (And, if you want, how can your partner help you with these difficulties?)

  3. Have you ever collaborated on a fanwork with someone before? If so, describe what it was like, which things worked for you, which things didn't work as well. What do you expect from this collaboration?

  4. What level of communication and feedback do you want/need from this partnership? What are some ways/tools you can use to achieve this (ie. scheduled contact, using google docs/drop box to share WIPs)?*

  5. If you unknowingly said something or suggested something for the project that made your partner uncomfortable, how would you want them to address you about it (or would you rather not know)?


*Over the years, there have been multiple partnerships where someone has a difficult experience because their partner doesn't acknowledge/feedback their part of the project. We highly encourage having a conversation about your feedback needs from your partner(s) now, so that this issue doesn't arise!

Hi fab collaborators,

As you begin your project, one way to get to know your partner(s) is through participating in icebreaker week. Icebreaker week is a series of questions that help get communication flowing. We created these questions based on watching many partnerships across the first few years of pod_together, and they are designed to help set the foundations for a strong partnership and help you anticipate and avoid potential pitfalls as you move forward in the collaboration process!

These exercises are optional, but we hope they'll help both those groups that were assigned and the ones that formed on their own. We encourage group members to contact each other, answering as many questions as as they are comfortable with.

Today's questions are geared towards helping group members learn a bit more about each other, personally and fannishly.

  1. If you could be any fannish character for a day, who would it be and why?


  2. Name as many books, movies, TV shows, animes, comics, celebrities, etc. that you can think of that you have felt or feel fannish about.


  3. List 5 things you enjoy in stories (e.g. a kind of trope, story line, kink, etc.). List 5 things that you do not enjoy in stories.


  4. If you could have any super power, what would it be and why?


  5. If you were stuck on a deserted island, what 3 fanworks would you want with you?


  6. What are 3 fun/interesting/not-commonly-known/etc. things about yourself (fannish or otherwise)?

Hello lovely participants,

It's been amazing to watch everyone's excitement as you meet your groups and begin discussing your project! Icebreaker week is designed to support that process, with a combination of fun and helpful getting-to-know-you questions. They started some incredibly useful and productive conversations with my group last year, and I hope they'll do the same for you!

These exercises are optional, but we hope they'll help both those groups that were assigned and the ones that formed on their own. We encourage group members to contact each other, answering as many questions as as they are comfortable with.

Today's questions are geared towards helping group members learn a bit more about each other, personally and fannishly.

  1. If you could be any fannish character for a day, who would it be any why?

  2. Name as many books, movies, TV shows, animes, comics, celebrities, etc. that you can think of that you have felt or feel fannish about.

  3. List 5 things you enjoy in stories (e.g. a kind of trope, story line, sexual kink, etc.). List 5 things that you do not enjoy in stories.

  4. Other than the things you were matched together on, find 2 things you have in common.

  5. If you could have any super power, what would it be and why?

  6. If you were stuck on a deserted island what 3 fanworks would you want with you?

  7. What are 3 fun/unknown/interesting/etc. things about yourself (fannish or otherwise)?
