Two podfics and a drabble

I made an edit to fix a missing line from the Arcane Asylum podfic, so if you downloaded but haven't listened yet (or plan to listen again later) you might want to download it again. Sorry about that!

Here are my first two fills for [community profile] hc_bingo! They are both podfics of canon-era stories where Arthur saves Merlin from death.

Title: Some Kind of Strength
Author: [ profile] lolafeist
Reader: [personal profile] sophinisba
Fandom: Merlin
Starring: Arthur/Merlin
Rating: NC-17
Contains: Tentacle rape, omg really sad, not a fun tentacle fic
Summary: "When Merlin is poisoned in the Perilous Lands, Arthur strikes a dark bargain to save his life."
Reader's notes: For the "tentacles" square on my [community profile] hc_bingo card. I am really kind of proud of this cover okay. My PhotoShop learnings have been slow and hard-won, and this was the first time I managed to get two different images into a piece.

Title: Yonder Comes the Morning
Author: [ profile] andraste_oz aka [personal profile] vanessarama
Reader: [personal profile] sophinisba
Fandom: Merlin
Starring: Arthur & Merlin
Rating: PG
Contains: "Utter cliche hurt/comfort fic. Icky medical details. Outdated medical procedures which should not be followed by anyone."
Summary: "Merlin is bitten by a snake. Arthur tries to help. There is a magic reveal of a different colour."
Reader's notes: For the "septicemia/infected wounds" square on my [community profile] hc_bingo card.

My plan to make podfics for all the [ profile] summerpornathon bonus challenges broke down after all of one week, but I did write a drabble (also on the AO3) about Morgana killing Merlin.

New batch of [ profile] summerpornathon fics going up tonight, and reveals for challenge #1 tomorrow! I had fun reading last week's entries but I'm even more excited for the apocalypse and fuck-or-die entries coming up.

Downloading the first one right now, and checking out the content notes on the second, but maybe too. Yay, h/c podfics. Those are my best friends on sleepless nights. It makes me especially excited about your h/c bingo. <3<3 (and yay pornathon! Don't want to comment everywhere, but I've read and had already enjoyed your story when reading some of the entries as they went up).

The tentacle manip is looking good! I hadn't thought of this before, but hey, know that if you have any photoshop question or need a hand with something I'd love to help.

Just listened to "Yonder Comes the Morning" and wanted to say that it's wonderful. I haven't read the story so it was a double pleasure to hear such a well crafted story so beautifully read.

I have probably listened to this quiet, emotional story a dozen times and it never gets old. Thank you again for recording it.
