Reader's note: Shockingly, this podfic has taught me that it is somewhat difficult to read 30K from the point-of-view of someone who is completely clueless about his feelings and motivations! Who'd have guessed.
My first attempt at recording this story was in 2013; I stopped in November because I just wasn't confident in my approach. I couldn't shake the urge, though, and at the very end of 2014 I came back and recorded the entire thing in three days, which for me is blazing speed, staying up late and getting up early to finish. (Then I spent half a year, off and on, struggling with the editing, but let's not talk about that.) It's a testament to how much I love this story, and how well it works for me on so many levels, that I kept at it all this time.
Feedback and constructive criticism: better, or at least less disturbing, than messages from beyond.
Also announced at my journal and amplificathon.
