Two Yuletide stories

Title: Merry-Go-Round
Author: [personal profile] nope
Reader: luzula
Fandom: Battlestar Galactica (2003)/WALL-E
Characters: Three, WALL-E
Rating: PG-13
Format: mp3, 128 kbps
Length: 19 m 10 s
Author's summary: 3 meets E on an Earth-That-Was (that Will-Be-Again).
Reader's notes: BSG and WALL-E might strike you as kind of a random cross-over (I certainly thought so before I read it). The story is basically about a Three walking around on WALL-E's Earth, but there's so much more to it. It's one of those stories where you slow down to catch every word, and it's thinky and beautiful. Also, warning for character death. Thanks to the author for letting me record it.

Fandom: Shakespeare's Hamlet
Character: Horatio gen

Reader's notes: This is a story about what could, realistically, have happened after the end of Hamlet. Thanks to the author for letting me record it.

Podfic - 'Restraint', Part 1 (of 4)

TITLE: Restraint
AUTHOR: emeraldsedai (Darkemeralds)
PAIRING: Jared/Jensen
RATING: This section, PG. Subsequent sections, NC17
DURATION: c. 5 hours
FORMATS: Currently m4a and mp3 - audiobook forthcoming.
SUMMARY: The calling card said Tristan Jarrett, Viscount Penrith. Beneath that, in a lazy scrawl, was the addendum Mr Acklebury, be so good as to wait on me tomorrow, number 10, Half Moon Street. Yours, &c., Penrith. Mr Acklebury was not sure how he felt about being thus summarily commanded to paint his lordship's portrait.

READER'S NOTE: Restraint is a WIP, spanning some forty chapters in total, divided into four sections. It is being released in podfic format one section at a time. The second section should be completed and uploaded within the week, insh'allah.

Most sincere apologies to the peoples of Italy, France and Ireland for my mutilation of their respective languages and accents.

Vast, vast thanks once more to the fair Cybel, for her marvellous tech skills and archiving-fu.

WORKSHOP: Podfic 101 (this weekend!)

If you've ever listened to someone read a story in your ear, if you've ever delighted in the pleasure of a reader's company even though she may be hundreds or thousands of miles away, if you've ever thought about adding your own voice to the network of stories...
