I started listening to this story yesterday on my way to work, and this morning, I was so dying of curiosity that I woke up a good two hours before my alarm clock and put it on while cleaning the kitchen. Thank you so much for podficcing this! Your reading was fantastic. Your voice subtly conveyed the character's emotions without ever crossing that line into melodrama, which is tricky to do. And I'm not sure I ever would have read that fantastic story without a podfic of it, so again, thank you. I'll definitely have to check out the other stories you've read!

Dammit I never commented. I'm a doofus. I loved, loved what you did with this story. You gave every character a unique voice and kept them true throughout, and your Arthur and Merlin just broke my heart with how earnest and lovely they are. My long-ass sentences must be a bitch to read, and you handled them so beautifully, and make it all sound good! I love your voice, and I loved every second of this podfic, and I just can't tell you how grateful and happy I am that you did it. Thank you!
