Title: The Giraffe Notes
Author (and artist!)jeyhawk
Wonder Beta: yue_ix
The Social Network RPF
Pairing: Jesse Eisenberg/Andrew Garfield 
Rating: NC17
Duration: 2:34:09
Song Credit: I Knew I Loved You by Savage Garden
The impossible love story of a mouse and a giraffe featuring a crush that last a decade, a very grateful movie star, the fine art of falling in love over the internet, a possibly naughty tattoo, three awesome friends, cats, nerves, and a spectacular first date.


A story comprised of all my favourite tropes! And super cute to boot.

I've gone to some extra trouble inserting pictures in the appropriate places - a new 'cover' for every 'chapter' to enhance your enjoyment of the story - so download the audiobook if you can!

Omg, this looks adorable♥~ \o/ *downloads*
(question! do you sometimes backdate the new updates on your comm? because, on my flist, I can see the new posts on Amplificathon, but not on munchinglunch \o\)

Yes, I made the entry a while ago...and then forgot to fix up the post date when I did post it....because I am silly OTL...

There's so much quality in TSN fandom, I am shocked there isn't more podfic, really!

Thanks for commenting, hope you enjoy it!

It just makes you feel all tingly and happy inside doesn't it?!

The story is super adorable! Very pure and untarnished XD

I'm flailing over here, don't mind me. But... THANK YOUUUUUU!!!!! I can't wait to listen to this.
27th-Feb-2012 12:33 pm (UTC)
Aw, flail away bb! I am pleased by your excitement ♥


25th-Feb-2012 01:44 pm (UTC)
Thank you for doing this! I listened to it and it's awesome! I really liked the sound effets for the malis and messages and phone conversations! Genius!
27th-Feb-2012 12:35 pm (UTC)
Thank you so much! Sound effects are so much fun to play around with, especially for a story that has so many epistolary elements like this one :)
26th-Feb-2012 06:30 am (UTC)
This was terrific! Loved the performance, liked the effects a whole heck of a lot. "Meet cute and shy boy" is definitely an appealing trope for me, and this just sucked me in, in, in. Thanks for the fun hours!
27th-Feb-2012 12:37 pm (UTC)
Thank you bb! ♥

Yessssss, this trope, why is it so engrossing? I can never get enough of it! So glad you enjoyed the performance, I really enjoyed channeling a whole lot of naivety and adorableness ♥
29th-Feb-2012 09:27 pm (UTC)
This is freaking amazing :D I absolutely loved every minute of it. And it doesn't hurt that the fic is one of my favorites.

I really enjoyed how you'd inserted the pictures in the file, btw. I was wondering how much I'd miss the cute drawings in an audio version, but then I didn't even have to miss them at all :D
2nd-Mar-2012 11:49 am (UTC)
Thank you so much! I'm really so happy to hear you enjoyed it ♥

And thank you so much for commenting on the pictures - I know the majority of listeners won't care one way or another, but for that 1% (like you!) I'm positively THRILLED that they were noticed AND that they added to your enjoyment. I loved jeyhawk's notes so much I had to find some way of incorporating them in, and you've really made me ecstatic, knowing someone out there appreciates that they're in there! YAY!
6th-Mar-2012 08:54 pm (UTC)
I was blown away by how amazing this was. This was my first experience with The Social Network and I was delighted. This podfic was perfection and the most adorable thing EVER. I thought the contrast between the characters was marked really well, I loved the enthusiasm and the emotion you put into them. I was listening to this while I was trying to get to sleep, so I missed the pictures /o\ so I am now listening again and am paying better attention (so worth it). Thank you so much for creating and sharing.

OH MY GOODNESS, how is this for a coincidence!! Didn't I just comment on a lovely TSN pod you had posted today? XD

I'm really pleased you took a chance on this since it was an unfamiliar fandom for you at the time (sorry that this reply is so horrendously overdue, sorry, so sorry :( ) and super happy you enjoyed it! I felt a lot of bubbly emotions reading the fic, and I'm glad that came across for you :D The pictures are unbelievably adorable, and I'm ecstatic that you're listening again to catch them! So happy! That's all a girl could want ♥

Thanks so much for such a lovely comment! Let's create a whole slew of TSN podfics XD
17th-Mar-2012 09:05 am (UTC)
Wow, The Giraffe Notes! Boy, I love your work. Every new podfic is a gift! ;)
31st-Mar-2012 04:21 pm (UTC)
Thank you so much! I'm honoured you think so ♥

I hope you enjoy the performance! It was great fun for me to do :D
18th-Mar-2012 05:21 pm (UTC)
Just perfect, thank you very much ! This fic is one of my favorite from this fandom, you can't imagine my joy !
You made a really good work, with sounds effect and musics, perfectly read and it's very understandable and your accent is delightful.

I hope you're gonna make other great podfics from the TNS RPF fandom : )
(that's very selfish but I can't help it !)
31st-Mar-2012 04:29 pm (UTC)
YES, THIS STORY IS THE BESTTTTTTTTT! I'm so happy you enjoyed it! A lovely side benefit of making podfic is knowing that second language speakers find them to be helpful, so I do try to make my enunciation as clear as possible (as clear as an Australian accent will allow, at any rate!)

I do aim to make more podfics in the TSN/ TSN RPF fandom since there are so many brilliant writers there, but the time! The time! Having said that, I did manage to post another TSN podfic here, which you might be interested in! Anyway, thank you so much for the lovely comment ♥

It's always nice to meet a fellow Aussie in fandom! We are a kind of rare breed here, aren't we? YAY FOOTBALL AND MEAT PIES!!!

I think simply by virtue of not being North American we're much more lax about accents, though I worry more about whether or not I'm pronouncing the word correctly rather than if people will find my accent hard to follow. Sorry, can't do much about it now!

I'm really pleased you enjoyed the Giraffe Notes pod so much! It's such a comforting, cute story, really brightens up your day :) I love adding effects and stuff in where I can, even if sometimes it can sound a bit dodgy XD Thanks so much for coming back to comment fellow countryman, you made my day!

seriously, i've been smiling so much that it's made me nauseaus. didn't know that was actually possible, but live and learn...

i'm. it's just. i've read this fic three times and i looked for a podfic when i went on vacation in december but no avail.

and then. this. i downloaded it immediately when jeyhawk tweeted about it, but i don't know if the file was corrupt or if my computer was stupid, but the quality then was extremely bad so i was really disappointed. but then i saw a post about it on tumblr just a few days ago, and thought i'd give it another shot, and what do you know. IT'S AMAZING! i'll probably just put this on repeat on my ipod and listen to it while i bike to work, so i'll get in with a happy d-face, and then while i bike home, so i'll get home with a happy d-face. and when i have it memorized i'll take a break and listen to something else and then i'll COME BACK TO THIS and do it all again. for the rest of my life.

this fic is the best thing i read in 2011, books included, and your recording of it does it absolutely perfect justice. i repeat: it is amazing.
10th-Apr-2012 05:04 pm (UTC)
oh no, not bad quality! I don't even know how that would happen!!

Gosh, I'm kind of overwhelmed at the thought of you listening to this repeatedly - that's kind of the nicest thing ever! Thank you! I don't have twitter myself, so to know that other ppl can find my stuff through other people's tweets it is really cool (aw, jeyhawk is so nice!) I'm also SO PLEASED you liked 'happy d face!' Deciding how to read out an emoticon is really tough, and I'm so glad it worked for you :)

I'm just really having lots of feelings over this nice comment you have given me. Wow! Just super happy you liked it so much. Thank you, you made my day!

I only listened to this recently, because up until not that long ago, I wasn't in Social Network fandom (rpf or otherwise) at all but various people said this was awesome so I listened. It was amazing. I may have spent a large chunk of time going how is this so good? to myself as I was listening. I am in awe of your performance and your use of sound effects and the like is masterful. I listened to this all in one day (which is unusual for me) whilst doing things around the house. I went and found more ironing to do so I could keep on listening without feeling guilty that I wasn't doing anything productive. I enjoyed this so much and was utterly charmed by both the story and your reading. <3
31st-Jul-2012 01:08 pm (UTC)
various people said this was awesome so I listened

All the love to those guys ♥ I'm seriously honoured that my podfic would get talked about at all ♥

Thank you so much for all your kind compliments, really, I don't know what I can say in response to that ♥ Except maybe, yay for getting all the chores done! This story is so cute and charming and uplifting and lovely so I did my best to convey that, and I'm just endlessly pleased that you enjoyed it so much ♥
14th-Aug-2012 08:05 pm (UTC)
this is quite possibly my favourite andrew/jesse fic and i cannot tell you how utterly delighted i am that you've podficced it ♥ i'm too tired to read right now so i'm literally going to lie in bed and listen to this and it's really just what i needed this evening!
15th-Aug-2012 03:27 pm (UTC)
Yes, good ♥ Podfic is excellent for tired eyes! I love this fic to bits, so I hope my reading of it is to your liking. Enjoy, and sweet dreams ♥
2nd-Sep-2012 02:35 pm (UTC)
I can't remember if I've commented on this before, but if I haven't, shame on me and commenting now (or again! idk!)! Just was listening to it again the other day, and I LOVED this story, and the way you managed to capture everything that was going on, with sound effects, (emoticons, chats, texts, phone calls!) and Jesse and Andrew's different voices. I absolutely loved being able to fall into this story and roll around in the awesomeness of your performance. Such a delight.
2nd-Sep-2012 04:06 pm (UTC)
Feedback is feedback, i love them all regardless! Don't you dare feel an ounce of shame!

I'm so, so happy it was still enjoyable the second time through ♥ I really love recording stories where I can play around with inserting sound effects, and when I hear back about them it really motivates me to try harder to make them better, or to think about other ways I could somehow enhance what's going on in the text - in short, it's really rewarding to know you liked their inclusion ♥ And I'm no actress, but I am so chuffed that I could make Jesse and Andrew sound different to you! Yay! Delighted you listened and enjoyed this bb, your feedback made my day ♥
12th-Sep-2012 02:29 am (UTC)
Really great work!! Love the little sound effects and emails haha..so delightful! And I totally squee-ed when I realised you must be a fellow aussie! YAY!
19th-Sep-2012 01:51 pm (UTC)
One of us! One of us! XD

So pleased you enjoyed it bb, it is so full of joy and delight - and I never can resist emails and IMs in fic...
16th-Sep-2012 11:21 am (UTC)
I just read this story, and as soon as I realized there was a podfic version of this, I ran to download it. I can't wait to listen!
19th-Sep-2012 01:47 pm (UTC)
It is the most adorable ♥ I had a great time podficcing it, so I hope you enjoy listening to it!
3rd-Aug-2013 08:15 pm (UTC)
Mmm... question. Are there any other TSN/Jesse-Andrew fics on podfic?
3rd-Aug-2013 11:34 pm (UTC)
omg I just finished this today and OH MY GOD?!!! This is my first tsn podfic and um wow such perfection. The story was all this fluffy goodness and then your podfic of it was so amazing! How do you do it?! :D:D:D:D:D
4th-Aug-2013 11:34 am (UTC)
oooh, delighted and honoured to be the first! This story is a gem, and I'm glad you enjoyed my recording of it :) (I did the recording on Garageband, an application for Mac)
