Hello! I interrupt my regularly scheduled being too lazy to post because OMG.

Lunchee has recorded a podfic for my story Intended

This podfic - okay, so the story is 17k long and spans 4 years in time, and is mostly dialogue, and sometimes there are three people talking, and I am stingy and/or lazy with dialogue tags, and you'd think this would be absolutely impossible to podfic. But lunchee somehow did it, with great flair and finesse, humour and feeling. The character's voices she creates are so distinct and real, and even my crazy-ass dialogue seems to flow effortlessly, and, oh god, Arthur. Lunchee makes him so pitch-perfect throughout, he grows up and his voice changes as he does, even before it "breaks" when he's 17, and - you know, I could gush about it forever, it's just weird because it kind of is my story, even though it feels completely new in her reading. So. Give it a listen. It's a beautiful performance. Leave her love. 

Intended - Podfic by Lunchee

A movie fusion thingie for reel_merlin

Title: Star Warlocks
Prompt: Star Wars
Rating: R
Pairing: Arthur/Merlin
Word count: 22K
Summary: A long time ago (in the 1970s), in a galaxy far, far away, a country boy named Merlin sets out to save a young senator (also a prince) Arthur from the clutches of the nefarious Darth Uther. With the help of a dashing smuggler and her first mate, he rescues Arthur and falls in love with him. But then Darth Uther totally strikes back, and angst ensues.
Warnings: crack, recreational drug use, forced intoxication, unsafe sex (it's the 1970s okay), dubcon due to intoxication, captivity, violence, war, mentions of siblingcest.

In celebration of my love for the original Star Wars trilogy, I cheerfully fuck over all the plot and characters. I'm generally all about Han/Leia, but that's not quite how this worked out.

Many thanks to flammablehat for fantastic beta work and to lolafeist and ella_bane for cheerleading and support, and to colacube for running this crazy fest with poise and grace!

(I feel like I should explain about the flying saucers so here's a link though it will probably only increase the level of WTF: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nazi_flying_saucers )

Notes: many, many thanks to my heroic beta ghost_guessed, who wouldn't give up on me despite my constant flailing and was a delight to work with, as always. Also to lolafeist, ella_bane, scribblemoose and gilli_ann for their support and invaluable advice and for holding my hand through all of this, and to louiselux, puddingcat, daegaer and toscas_kiss who read this in Tallin hotel room in between sharing beer, game and adventures with me.

Huge thanks to the_muppet, for being a wonderfully supportive mod and for hooking me up with the inimitable amphigoury.

amphigoury agreed to pinch-hit the art at the last minute, read 50K of terrifyingly rough draft in one go and magically conjured three magnificent pieces and also the gifs embedded throughout the story. I don't know how, okay. It's a miracle. Thank you! It's been such a privilege to work with you and to get to know you.
