It happens instantaneously, but it takes years.
It’s like looking up at the stars and spinning around with your arms out and letting gravity take you.
This is the story of the Holmes Brothers, starting at the very beginning, until the moment they meet John. It’s wonderful headcanon material; such a thoughtful, credible rendition of their childhood, youth and development, and especially of the development of their relationship - it IS Holmescest (though no too graphic sex scenes), and I deeply love it as a Holmescest fic, but I love it even more as a Holmes ‘Brotherly Love’ story. Wonderfully written. I’ve spent far too much time with this text for the podfic, and it has only increased my admiration for the author.

Z made a podfic! Between this, my re-listen of lunchee’s excellent Genie’s Blog podfic, and some new bands I just discovered, it’s going to be this…
…kind of a day.

I’m gonna record this out of order and do Within This Frail Crucible of Light first, because I need to record something but I don’t really feel up to about 4000 words of drug-shooting porn at the immediate moment
and then I’ll go back and do I Hear Those Voices That Will Not Be Drowned before I get to the truly emotionally harrowing bits
yes good, a plan is get
Oh my god. I’m so fucking excited. You have no idea. This is so amazingly awesome.
Am I shameless enough to masturbate to my own work spoken in a stranger’s voice?
I think we are about to find out.
Songlin’s podficcing The Cold Song? That’s…inconceivably exiting. Really, truly, massively exciting.
Also that’s some A+ commentary from the author up there :)
I just realized (a bit late) that it’s been a year since I posted my first podfic, The Progress of Sherlock Holmes, to Amplificathon.
I’m so ridiculously glad that I made the decision to toss caution and nerves and doubt to the wind and throw my hand in at podficcing. I’m richer in friendships, confidence, skill, knowledge, and sheer joy than I could have ever imagined when I decided to start participating in fandom culture in the only way I knew how a year ago.
So, yes, I suppose I just wanted to say thank you to everyone who’s stuck with me along the way, to every friend I’ve made, and to every person who’s ever told me that what I do had a positive impact on their experience as a fan, or just as a person. Thanks especially to Ivy for the permission to podfic her phenomenal story, and to all the writers who’ve given me permission to podfic their work since. It’s really meant the world to me, and I’m so grateful for every single one of you guys.
On that note, in case anyone wants to give the old girl a re-listen or rec it to a friend, here she is :)

*whispers even softer* What about podfic for A Conversation Held with the Lamp Switched Off? :D
I would have to stop every two or three sentences for sobbing-with-a-bottle-of-wine-under-a-desk breaks.
It would be worth it, though :)
OH GOD, Conversation is one of my ALL TIME FAVORITES. It’s just. The FEELS. I can’t.
*whispers* ….podfic?…. *whispers*
*whispers back* cliiiiickkkkk mmmeeeeeeeee…
I still want to have a crack at it just for the sheer joy of it someday, even though magicranberries already did a simply fantastic job :)
