Reader's notes: For [personal profile] netgirl_y2k!

Okay, so I was already in the middle of doing this for [community profile] kink_bingo (because I was feeling kind of hinky about how heavily my Size Matters bingo was weighted toward white guys) but then I saw [personal profile] netgirl_y2k's request at [ profile] fandom_stocking for "Gwen/Morgana, Morgana/Morgause, Morgana & Arthur, Morgana/redemption, Morgana/her feelings", which describes this fic so well it's uncanny. So for a while I thought about putting it there, but then I realized that the fandom_stocking rules encourage small gifts and don't mention podfic, and that it doesn't go live until early January, and here I am with a giant Christmassy podfic and anyway I think I'm done posting fanworks in LJ comments. So yeah, here is a long podfic about Morgana fucking up and eventually being forgiven and getting to have kinky sex with Gwen! I love this fic and, except for a few sound hiccups and not knowing how to pronounce "commis", I'm really happy with this recording.

Happy Christmas, [personal profile] netgirl_y2k! And thanks to [personal profile] themadlurker for betaing!

Additional note: [ profile] elsewhere_kels also worked on a podfic of Merrily On High last year but some things came up and she wasn't able to finish and post it. If she did make it back to fandom sometime and wanted to finish it, then we would have two podfics of this great story, just like we do of Castle, and that would be beyond awesome.

So, this is actually one of my favourite fanfics of all time, and you are one of my favourite podfic readers of all time, and I am having kind of a fraught Christmas here, and I can't tell you how much I'm looking forward to finding a couple of hours to myself to listen to this.

And you're right, it was pretty much exactly what I was asking for for my fannish holidays. :-)

Merry Christmas!

And those are my feelings having listened to it. It's seriously wonderful and really cheered me up. I don't know what it is, exactly, but I find you such a relaxing reader to listen to :-)

I also listened to both versions of This is Tomorrow and thought they were terrific too. I always love it when you record anything of mine, because you always manage to make it sound much cooler than it sounded in my head.

I really love this. ♥ I love your voice and reading style in general, and I thought you did particularly well in this instance with the fighting and angst. The sweet parts were lovely and soothing as well, though! *totally having a Christmas-in-September moment over here*
