It took 7 odd months and a boatload of people, but Radio is finally DONE. Oh my GOD. 

First, to the Variation OP, yue_ix  , YOU STOLE MY MIND. THANKS, I THINK.

All the pretty graphics herein were created by the absolutely amazing curvasud , who shocked me with her mock up, and put me half in the grave every time a new email would come, filled with incredibly stunning graphics. In the end, there were fifty graphics in total. Fifty. SO CRAZY. There are not enough words to express my gratitude!! 

While toiling away over these beautiful images, curvasud hinted that she would love to hear the DriveThru podcasts....actually recorded. And I thought, you know what? I can do that. And I did, but they were kind of horrible until these GORGEOUS PEOPLE came along and made them 10 BILLION TIMES SEXIER with their SEXY EXOTICISM. Thank you so much to the voice cast of the DriveThru podcasts, thank you for lending your voice to my silly little project, credited and uncredited! In order of appearance:  
Dusty: the supremely amusing, long suffering vensre !
Vivian: the person who made me laugh until I cried, subaruke !
Percy and Sarah: the sultry tones of yue_ix !
Linda and Elizabeth: the Judy Garland-esque sister of vensre !
Chorus of cooing: the very adorable yue_ix , subaruke and stefy !

To the generous, generous shirasade , thank you so, so much for the webspace!

And to the person who whipped this into shape, who endured my constant whining and even more frequent re-writes, who you can all thank for pretty em dashes instead of my lazy --'s, who laughed at my lame jokes and made this so much better then I ever could, my wonderful, wonderful beta vensre . NOT ENOUGH PANCAKES AND SQUISHY CATS IN THE WORLD.

I am so, so lucky and feel so, so blessed, not only to have received so much support on the kinkmeme, but to then luck out even further and have the assistance of all of these incredibly generous, incredibly talented people... I can't even. The first thing I ever produced for the Merlin fandom, to have becomes what it is today... It's not something I could have ever imagined in a million years. It's been so amazing. Thank you everyone. Enjoy ♥

with a podcast! That gets very, very sexy because there are sexy french canadians with their sexy french accents! (I am a big fan of the french accents, in case that wasn't apparent XD )they were terribly fun to make.

I hope you enjoy it all, esty! Thanks for supporting my silly story on the meme ♥

haha, it only took, erm, ::counts on fingers:: 8ish months?
Again, it was so completely insane to see this on your lj -- twice! it was a bit of a twilight zone experience, fantasy and reality colliding -- I was surprised, and then shocked, and then utterly, utterly flattered! You're pretty amazing yourself ♥
Enjoy bb ♥

EVEN I CAN'T BELIEVE.

It honestly didn't seem like that much when it was in progress, but after putting it all together, i have to admit it looks really damn impressive. I lucked out so much in the art-ing department, I can't even ♥

This was so funny and brilliant, Merlin especially for being so endearingly clueless. I also love how you've used all the characters. Thank you for writing this!
9th-Jan-2011 12:12 am (UTC)
he's not the brightest crayon in the box, is he? XD
Having a big cast of characters was so much fun, especially when I gave them all such strange quirks XD
Thank you for your lovely comment bb ♥
4th-Jan-2011 03:53 am (UTC)

OMG, THIS FIC WITH ALL THE SOUNDTRACKS AND GRAPHICS IS SOOOOOOOOOOO DAMN BLOODY AWESOME!!!!!! AND GOSH, BG (merlin) IS SO DAMN CUTE *pinches cheek* AND ARTHUR IS SO DAMN HOT IN A STALKERISH-WAY!!!!!

p.s is it wrong that I love Hunith very much here? Awesome tech-expert mum XD
9th-Jan-2011 12:55 am (UTC)
MERLIN IS THE CUTEST!
Who knew stalking really is the way to Merlin's heart?? (weirdo) XD
omg, the graphics are so totally goooood, so coooool!! Cannot get over them!! ♥

Hunith is a total meddler, and so long as she isn't my mum, she is like, the awesomest person ever! Wait until she figures out that 'twitter' Boy are Penn and dusty in for it! :D

Thanks for your enthusiasm bb! I'm so happy you enjoyed it ♥

YOU MAGICAL, BEAUTIFUL, GENIUS PERSON YOU. THIS FIC IS THE BEST THAT I HAVE EVER READ, THE BEST THAT WAS EVER PUT TOGETHER. I LAUGHED SO HARD AT SOME PARTS, AND SQUEED SO HARD AT OTHERS. YOUR FIC HAD AN INSANE SMILE ON MY FACE FOR WEEKS. <3 I CAN'T EVEN BEGIN TO EXPLAIN HOW BRILLIANT THIS IS. I LOVE YOU SO MUCH FOR THIS :D
...
I...
demand a sequel?
:3...
No... more like, I grovel at your beautifully capable feet for a sequel?
9th-Jan-2011 02:33 pm (UTC) - Re: :D
I LOVE YOUR CAPSLOCK ENTHUSIASM!!
Thanks so much Ari, you're too kind ♥♥♥ I'm glad you enjoyed it!

No plans for an actual sequel, but if the inspiration hits...
6th-Jan-2011 02:37 am (UTC)
this was AWESOME! I loved the graffics they really were amazing and gave the story a nice touch that this could actually happen. The group oh they were great to Freya thinking everyone daterapes! people and does drugs lol, the fact that they guys used fake voices to throw off Merlin and Arthur going from wanting revenge to being a creepy stalker to trying to woo him. oh and in the next timestamp could Gwen and Lance get together please. And Morgana never change hah
All in all i adored this story and am bookmarking it so i can read it again :)
9th-Jan-2011 02:37 pm (UTC)
Thanks jenna, I'm really happy to hear you enjoyed those parts!
The graphics are so pretty aren't they?? Oh, I love them so!
Social networking sites make up a good chunk of our everyday lives, so I thought it'd be really fun to explore M/A relationship from that angle :D It provided a really great way to get the whole cast involved as well!
Unfortunately, Gwen and Lance are not meant to be in this universe. I mean, not until he stops coming on so strong, and even then...
7th-Jan-2011 08:10 am (UTC)
This is just so...amazingly brilliant and wonderful.
9th-Jan-2011 02:38 pm (UTC)
Thanks hun ♥
7th-Jan-2011 11:09 pm (UTC)
I am completely blown away. This is just sheer genius. I swear! EVERY SINGLE THING ABOUT THIS IS PERFECT! ABSO-BLOODY-LUTELY PERFECT!!
I laughed so much that I must have looked like a loon. The embedded podcasts and images and EVERYTHING... everyone involved deserves a huge round of applause... by Arthur and Merlin themselves! :)
9th-Jan-2011 02:41 pm (UTC)
Hahaha! Well, it did take like, five different websites, facebook, text messaging and even youtube for them to FINALLY get together, so I suppose all and sundry deserve a pat on the back XD
Also, hooray, sometimes people think I am funny!
Thanks so much bb ♥
