First off, huge thanks to Spiced Wine for her generous transformative works policy, for writing such compelling stories, and for being an all-around nifty person. I'm so thrilled to be able to roll around in this 'verse to my heart's content! :D
In case you're intrigued by the series designation, I am planning to record the rest of the stories in the Dark Prince/Magnificat of the Damned 'verse--so if you like what you hear, there's plenty more to come! Technically, Dark Prince is the first in the series, and I do have quite a bit of that recorded already and nearly ready for posting. Chronologically speaking, however, this story is the beginning, so I thought it would be a good introduction for everything that follows, as well as a way to defeat my months-long case of podblock.
As a side note, I found myself listening to "Can't Say No (To You)" by VAST on repeat while doing the initial edits, and it turned into the story's theme song for me. I ended up not using any samples in the podfic itself, as by the point it occurred to me I was tired of fiddling with it and just wanted to post the dang thing already, but I thought it bore a mention anyway. The creative process at work, eh? :)
