[Podfic] This Offering (cold read with audience)
Podfic of This Offering by naye.
When they're captured by Dixing rebels looking for Hēi Páo Shǐ, Zhào Yúnlán is willing to do anything to keep Shěn Wēi out of their hands—but Shěn Wēi is determined to protect Kūnlún. And no matter what happens they are all alone and far from safety.
This podfic is a bit of a different experience. This is essentially the "fanfic read around the kitchen table" version of a podfic. It's not only a cold read (where you gēt to listen to the fic exactly as I read it, mistakes and all— no editing!), but this is an extra experimental cold read: a cold read with an audience! My wonderful housemate ShadowSquirrel who had never read this fic before joined me to listen to me read it. So we're inviting you into our home to read fanfic with us, and we hope you have as much fun as we did!
If you want a more traditional podfic experience, I HIGHLY recommend checking out the podfic of this fic read by the author Naye. I can't tell you how many times I've listened to it, naye is not only a wonderful author but a wonderful podficcer. Go check it out!!
(See the end of the work for more notes.)
Hugē thanks to my dear ShadowSquirrel for letting me record our fanfic reading time and share it with the world!
Naye, I will forever bow down at your feet for your AMAZING fics, your equally amazing podfics, and for having blanket permission so I can come play in your sandbox. I will be forever screaming from the rooftops about how much I ADORE you, I hope you enjoy this too!
I am, as always, indebted to my incredible pronunciation beta/cheerleader, Lunatique!!! I didn't give her the chance to listen to this one, so any mistakes are extra mine, but her recordings and guidance in the past hopefully mean that I didn't do too badly flying solo on this one. I’m also indebted to the phenomenal recorded guides by Lunatique (yes the same one, I’m so lucky!), @fandoestrans, and @ineffablebfs. Thanks to these wonderful people, my pronunciation is miles better than it would be otherwise. Any remaining pronunciation issues are my own.
This fulfills the Voiceteam Life of the Party challengē and the Guardian bingo square "War". But shhhhh, don't tell anyone I was already gonna record this anyway.
