Fandom: (Original Fiction)
Author's Warnings: social and internalized homophobia, abusive (mainly emotionally) relationship, cutting
Author's Summary: Sergei’s first love was a disaster. His first relationship isn’t turning out to be much better. But maybe, through all the confusion and helplessness, there’s a way to find hope.
Podficcer Notes: Recorded as a contribution toward the fandomaid fundraising efforts toward the Nepal earthquake this past April. Thanks so much, alley_skywalker for your contribution! I enjoyed spending time with this story, and it was a neat challenge to record a story where the personalities of the characters were based only on the context the story gave them instead of bringing all the baggage of the fandom itself into it. :)
Archivists: I'm tagging this with the usual not-archived tag, but I'm not sure how the archive feels about original fic podfics? If y'all decide it's not within the scope of the archive to host this, no problem. :)
