Reader's notes I think this might be my favorite of the podfics I've made! It was a real pleasure to read out loud and I'm very happy with how it turned out. I hope that there will be podfic of the rest of the Timing Verse eventually.

Just the cover and the mention of the music have me ridiculously excited already; I can't wait to actually listen to the whole thing. ♥

And now that I've actually listened, ♥ ♥ ♥

I really liked the use of the music, between parts and especially to set off the non-Morgana-POV bits - very nice touch there. And I really admire your ability to get through the porny bits and some of Merlin's ridiculous dialogue without giggling at it - I'm pretty sure I couldn't. :D

I listened! While I was walking around a lake with the sun shining and a big floppy hat on. And I loved it. The sound effects to set apart small scenes worked really well - it's something I'm going to have to try. You have such a lovely, well-paced reading voice that went well with the flow of the narrative.

I loved listening to this, your voice and recording style are always so nice to spend time with. I don't watch Merlin, so I downloaded this on the strength of your other podfic, and I'm so glad I did, because the story is wonderful, too. (I also literally just finished relistening to 'Automated Daydreaming', and wondering why exactly I don't listen to it more often, so thank you too for that.)
