Reader's Note: I have always found this fic incredibly hot and compelling, and one day, a few months ago, I made the spontaneous decision to record it. I wasn't sure whether I was going to do anything with the recording, though, and after I listened back I decided that I'd better not. And for a month or two, that was that.
Then, right after I finished This Never Happened, I was in the mood to work on podfic and this was the only unedited file I had. And this time, it felt like maybe there was something in here worth sharing after all. So I picked the project back up, and now here we are. It's definitely not perfect—you may notice me having weird issues with the word "slightly," for example—but hopefully there's something of value in here.
It's a really intimate story, and the recording also feels very intimate to me, which is probably why I feel kind of vulnerable posting this. I think that's the biggest strength and the biggest weakness of this podfic, and it may not be right for everyone, especially people who are on the fence about having NC-17 stories read to them. But my fingers are crossed that it will work for some listeners, and that my performance can bring out a little of what makes this such an intense and interesting story for me.
