Title: To Shame the Devil
Author: [ profile] Kalliste
Fandom, Pairing: Generation Kill, Brad/Nate
Rating: NC-17
Summary: It’s not like Nate’s never been picked up in a bar before, but he doesn’t ever remember it going quite like this.

In his experience, gorgeous, stacked, and insanely tall blondes who look like they should be gracing the cover of a Victoria’s Secret catalogue don’t generally saunter into grimy Cambridge dives populated by obnoxious Harvard grad students, walk straight up to his booth, plunk themselves down next to him without so much as a by-your-leave, and open with “I certainly hope that you’re not drinking Coors Lite or some similar lowbrow swill, or else I will have lost all faith in the pretentiousness of the dicksuck Ivy League communist elite of this country.”

Reader's Notes: I've never been a fan of genderswap, but I absolutely adore this story. Not only is the trope well explored, but the device by which it happens is so elegantly handled, delving into questions of good vs. evil and cosmic balance—and the amazingness of Nate Fick—in a deliciously satisfying way.

Oh my god, your read. *falls over* It was so fantastic. My heart ached for Brad when he was in Brianna's body, how badly he wanted to be with Nate translated in your read and so did his despair. Nate's EVERYTHING was great but mostly his earnestness and then his need for Brad to be okay then later to be HIS all came through in your voice. SO WHENS THE NEXT GK FIC COME OUT? BECAUSE I AM READY FOR MORE! (I'm hoping by regularly reviewing everything you post it will encourage you to do stuff :D)

Seeing the title of this fic brought back all kinds of emotions from reading it -- I'm sure listening to it will be an experience, especially with you reading. This in combination with your recording of Like Going to War is going power me through the week of tests ahead. :P Seriously, when I saw those two in the archive I ended up thanking the gods I don't believe in for your existence and incredible timing. <3 Cheers.

I'm not one for genderbender fics, but after reading the summary and then your notes I figured what the heck, lets give it a listen. What a fantastic story! You read it very well! It was clear to understand and subtly emotional all the way through and I am so glad that I found this. You must have put a lot of time into reading and editing this and it was worth it alllllllll (at least as far as this humble listener believes). Thanks for doing such a great job performing this fic!

Wow. I loved this! I listened to it without reading the story first, and I love that way of taking in a story. I was just totally caught up in your performance of this story--great job!
