Might I Have a Bit of Earth is a Frank Iero/Gerard Way podfic by shiningartifact (1:29:50). It is a podfic of the fanfic of the same name, written by theopteryx.

Summary: Gerard took things. He didn’t used to take things; he used to ask before, say please and may I and other things his parents taught him, because that was what you did. You didn’t just take.

Recs and Reviews

This was one of the first fanworks I encountered when I first got into Bandom and it's held a special place in my heart. When I found out that shiningartifact had recorded it as a podfic, I about died of happiness.

Shiningartifact has a lovely, clear voice that's well suited to vocal performances, with just a hint of huskiness that's keeps things interesting. The way she voices Frank and Gerard in this work, Frank cocky and bold, Gerard more cynical, weary and wary, are perfect. [personal profile] shiningartifact guides us along on a treacherous journey with Frank and Gerard, through the deepest reaches of the Grit, and makes us believe in space pirates and bounty hunters and strangest of all, hope.

Shiningartifact's pacing is perfect, deliberate and thoughtful, and it just adds so much depth to her performance, bringing out the sharpness of life in an unforgiving universe. Hands down, one of my favorite podfics ever.[1]
