also for podficcing

"Yes. I keep a time machine in my back pocket at all times."

So, there's kind of a story behind the upcoming podfic? Not an exciting story, exactly, but a story nonetheless.

It started last week, when Frank Iero Tweeted about the aggravation of random single socks on laundry day.

And then, I wanted My Chemical Romance laundry fic. Because, obviously. So I opened up a tab for mizubyte's Van Days Era fic, Spin and Rinse. And it's kind of perfect, because mizubyte has Blanket Permission for everything, too. (Blanket Permission is kind of awesome, you guys.)

And then, I kind of just... left it sitting there.

So then, this morning, croissantkatie mentioned that she was suffering from a case of First Class Of The New School Year Nerves. "Obviously," I thought to myself, "what she needs is a nerves-calming podfic."

Which - the first class of a new school year is a Big Deal to get through, right? And doing laundry for the WayBrothers is ALSO a Big Deal to accomplish. And then akamine_chan egged me on, via Twitter. So....really, what could I do but podfic, right?

And, for added ambiance, I recorded this AS I RAN A LOAD OF LAUNDRY IN THE DRYER. That's right, I am full of creative listening ideas! Also, the cover is a screencap from this gif.

Running just shy of 10 minutes long, you can download this podfic right over here (thank you, paraka, for hosting me!) OR you can stream the story by clicking below.



Happy listening! ***This podfic is being used to fill my "Read Loudly" square for podfic_bingo, since I had to speak louder than my usual volume in order to ensure you'd hear me over the sound of the washing machine.***

ETA: now with a link to the AO3 page for this fic, insted of to the locked page....
I HAVE MAGICAL FRIENDS PAGE TIMING. Or something, because I opened my friends page JUST AS YOU POSTED THIS.

Oh, wow... talk about crazy timing... I was just mid-sentence, about to send you a PM that I'd podficced this one!

I shall go fix the link right now. Enjoy ^____^
EXCELLENT TIMING. LOL I've been tweeting about it as I listen, but since you're here (and .... possibly not there?)

1. You said my name right! \o/
2. You said Iero the way I say it! \o/
3. ahahahah adorables
4. I love the cover! (and the back-story, heh)

5. POOR BRIAN.
I am over there!....and I just Followed you. So, you know, yeah.

I have gone through approximately seven different pronunciations of Iero, and each time it gets a little bit closer to how Frank says it. It's funny, because in my earliest Bandom podfics, it basically sounds like a different name altogether.

I'm glad I made you smile \o/ And, I love how this whole thing is basically canon, according to Brian.
YOU ARE THE MOST AWESOME. YOU WIN.

Erm. You're awesome. This podfic is super awesome. Thank you.
It was no big deal, but you're welcome. And I'm actually really glad you enjoyed it so much :-D Seriously, I'm so glad it made your day better! I know how stressful getting tossed in the deep can be, and hopefully you'll find your stride and kick college's butt really soon <3 Until then, podfic to the rescue!
I didn't do nothing. That's my story and I'm sticking to it. *sneaks off to download*
*snickers* You totally did! And I've had visions of Frank in the Alice in Wonderland pinafore ever since.
