So, yeah.  I ain't no pro, but this turned out pretty damn good.  Here's some thrilling spoken-word written by everyone's favorite slashfic author, Marigold.  (7 min, streaming)

I started laughing uncontrollably at "...which was the Hogwart's moon base on the moon" and had to pause it to collect myself.

EDIT:  I just about snerked ice water all over my keyboard at "NOOOOOOOOOO!"  You win an internets, sir.

<Wipes away tears of laughter>

Just think that the vision-impaired will now not be denied the chance to enjoy Marigold's tour de force. You are a truly generous person.

Hey there.  Excellent!  I was worried this was going to be another one of those things that drops off the face of the forum.  I've added a few more tracks (non QC-related) to the Soundcloud account.  Mostly stuff I did on 4chan vocaroo threads.  Listen at your own risk?

Tech stuff:  Program is Audacity.  Mic is some Logitech headset.  Noise removal is the greatest.  Librivox.org can teach you how to do this stuff properly.  Also, James Herriot as performed by Christopher Timothy is godly win.

It's actually doesn't sound that horrible told out loud! Or maybe that was because of mactoplac's incredible storytelling skillz. Very good, sir, very good.  :lol: :lol:

That is....the most beautiful bit of earsex out their. The only way it could be better was if it were read by Alen Rickmen.

I'd pass out if it were read by Alan Rickmen.

Win. Awesome read. How many takes did you have to do? I'm asking cause I doubt I could do a straight read through without laughing. At least not the first read.

There are some basic rules to remember when cosplaying.

   2. Everyone else needs to GTFO.

Each of the 'clicks' that you hear is one take.  I did the thing in one sitting.  I woke up at 6 am and read it a few times.  Deleted takes until I got them right and moved on to the next section.  I think it took around an hour, but I'm not sure.  Need to go to bed now, but here are tonight's weird /b/ vocaroos.

Oh the fail, the fail.  It is tangible.

Psh, whatever, pretty sure your rendition is just epic enough to be recognized. Possibly a creative arts Emmy?

meh, maybe.  :psyduck:

also, wanted to ask permission to make a .wav file of you're " NOOOOOOOOO " for my sound profile. (windows critical error anyone?)

As you wish, man.  I didn't realize the internet required permission, lol.  I thought that's what the tumblr/4chan thing was all about.

Well, hey thanks everybody.  This week has been a nice, wild ride.  This talentless hack thanks you for all the views, lol.  So off to the DMV to get registered here and throw some money at the taxman.  See you next fanfic.

WIN.

That, sir, was made of true epic...ness.

Though I was half-expecting a "period-underscore-period-semicolon-semicolon" at the part where Marigold used " ._.;; "

:D
