Arthur/Merlin podfic: Before and After

Title: Before and After
Author: anonymous
Reader: [personal profile] sophinisba
Fandom: Merlin
Characters/Ships: Arthur/Merlin (mentions Merlin/Nimueh, Arthur/OMC)
Rating: NC-17
Contains: modern AU, BDSM, pain/impact play (off screen), rimming, seizures/epilepsy
Author's summary: "After pining for longer than he'd care to admit, Arthur asks Merlin out and gets more than he expected."
Reader's notes: idk I had a cold last week and I had this idea that it would make my voice sound extra sexy, but when I came back to edit I found out it just sounds like I have a cold. :/ Oh well, it takes place during the winter so that's something.
Even so, I love this fic a lot and encourage you to read or listen if you are interested in stories about kinky people and feelings. Like many Merlin AUs, it's easy to understand even if you don't watch the show.
This is a third pass at the "subspace/headspace" square on my second [community profile] kink_bingo card, and the start of a characters with disabilities bingo that I hope to finish during the amnesty period.

Edit April 19, 2012. The author has chosen to take the text of this fic offline but we agreed to keep an edited (anonymous) version of the podfic available. As a courtesy, we'd appreciate it if you too would avoid connecting the author's name with this fic/podfic in public spaces. Thanks!

If they make you branch out, imagine what they do to those of us who are already multifannish? (The sprawl is uncontrollable. UNCONTROLLABLE.)

Thank you but it was actually Astolat's Merlin fics that got me into SPN in a roundabout way. Her fic was so good, I wanted to read more, so started marathoning SPN so I could. The end.

I used to watch Merlin until Morgana got all overacty eeeeviiiilll. BUT. I STILL HAVE THIS RANDOM MERLIN ICON! \0/

Oh, wow. I don't know how I missed that story before. You know my kink for bottom!Arthur. But add on to that bottom!Merlin and I'm kind of rolling around in heaven. I can't wait to download and listen to this.

Thanks for another terrific listen while I was on my walk this afternoon. You captured the intensity of Arthur's feelings and the stutter stop of trying not to push too hard or cross too many lines. The morning after freak out was very well done.
