Here's the thing: I've just started recording aramuin's excellent J2 BigBang fic Queensguard. Two chapters in, and I'm fairly happy with the way I've handled the inset bits of found text (newspaper reports etc etc) so far - but what I'd forgotten, because apparently I'm Queen of the Forgetful People, is that every chapter starts with an inset box of found text - Larry King interviewing someone, say, or politicians making statements, or something like that.
Which is TERRIFIC, and part of the fabulousness of the text, and I can go ahead and do this myself - but I was wondering if other people might be interested in helping? I mean, we're only talking
If you might be interested in contributing a few minutes of speech to making this happen, comment below and I'll put together a list of all the sections so we can allot them to volunteers & take it from there.
Thank you kindly!
(Further to the recent discussion of multiple versions/covers, since I'm in PSA mode I should probably add that I don't consider myself having "dibs" on any of the stories I've recorded, and that I'm totally good with other people recording versions if they want to [although it it's a story I've WRITTEN, I'd appreciate the heads up]. I especially understand this if it's a non-UK text, because I know that some people find accents a deal-breaker and I certainly don't want to reduce people's access to awesome stories. So, y'know, if you're sitting at home thinking "The bitch! I wanted to record 'Queensguard', and now she's going to make it all Masterpiece Theatre-ish! Damn her!", then please do still go for it, mate! The more the merrier, eh?)
*okay, having copied out all the sections, I can see that we're maybe talking five minutes for a couple, actually - but still pretty brief sections, I promise!
