Reader’s notes:

Whoops, I recorded another SGA podfic.



So: I admire Speranza a lot. She’s been writing in many a fandom for many a year, and she always seems to do what she does with inspiring and slightly intimidating levels of enthusiasm and curiosity and excellence, which I imagine is no small feat. I first discovered her stuff through her phenomenal SGA fics awhile back, and this here podfic is of one of my favorites, War Bride. It’s a favorite SGA fic, a favorite getting-together fic, a favorite nonlinear narrative fic…the list goes on. Suffice it to say, I’m really attached to this one.

The only thing I’m miffed about is the obnoxious plosives that pop (heh) up in some places in this recording. Sigh. My new mic’s not quite here, but I was itching to record this one, so I committed a cardinal podficcing sin and used a crappy mic and unfortunately the results of that decision are kinda evident. BUT, as a wise friend recently reminded me, perfection can be the enemy of progress, and hopefully it’s still a nice listen despite the production woes; I sure had a wonderful time recording it, and I’m very fond of the finished product, imperfect as it is.

Please enjoy :)

PS: I REDID THE COVER FIVE DANG TIMES. Photoshop, why do you want to hurt me like you do? I’m pretty happy with the way the final cover turned out, though.
