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 ♥  
 
EDIT: Why you eat my formatting? BAD LIVEJOURNAL!

What a lovely thing to say! THANK YOU ♥
I try my best to keep it light, but you never know what will actually be funny to other people (instead of only just myself). I have been made aware of the publicity machine that seems to be tumblr, it's very cool to know about!

You must be awesome with accents! I am totally pants at pinning down not-obvious accents. I am extremely pleased you liked the podcasts! I am really proud of them :)
14th-Jan-2011 11:37 am (UTC)
This is bloody brilliant. :D And you took the time to put it all in that nice PDF package, thanks. ♥♥♥

(Your icons; awwwww, I remember watching that anime for a while. ^^)
20th-Jan-2011 05:21 am (UTC)
putting them into PDF was fairly easy, but I am told the images appear quite small, so watch out!

I love Chi's Sweet Home. BEST EVER.

I'm glad you enjoyed it bb! ♥

I meant to comment here sooner, but RL got in the way and I forgot about it. And then I remembered. It's one of my favorite fills and I've been waiting for the repost since forever AND I CAN'T WAIT TO REREAD THIS, it's such a bright spot in the time of thesis ♥ Thank you very much!

+ THE COVER IS A WONDERFUL WONDERFUL THING
4th-Feb-2011 02:08 am (UTC)
THE COVER IS BEAUTIFUL, I LOVE IT.

It's okay bb, I am embarrassingly behind on commenting (as you can see), but RL gets busy and there's really nothing you can do :(

I hope you enjoyed it, and good luck on your thesis!
30th-Jan-2011 07:09 pm (UTC) - GAH!!!
I loved the relationship between Arthur and Merlin. Normally I read a fic, and once they've gotten together I'm done. However, I really wanted to sit in their relationship for a while.
4th-Feb-2011 02:11 am (UTC) - Re: GAH!!!
I feel like that a lot! After all the effort and complications and every which way the characters go, it's a bit of a let down if you don't get to see a bit of their happily ever after -- so I hope you enjoyed the little extra snippets of what happens after the story :)

thank you olga ♥
Downloads are there for downloading, yay! (Why am I arrogant enough to think people would want to...)
The whole cast were such fun to write, I was a little sad when it was all over. But, at least they have their little corner of the internet, being idiots ♥
I'm really cheered by your enthusiasm. Thanks for your lovely comment!
15th-Feb-2011 06:06 pm (UTC)
Yay! PDF and graphics and everything. I read this at the kmm and have been waiting for the repost for a long time...and then managed to miss it! Thanks so much for all the hard work that you've put into this ♥
15th-Mar-2011 02:23 pm (UTC)
Thank you so much for your support on the meme ♥ I hope you enjoyed the repost too!

It was always so thrilling to go back to the kmm thread and find more comments...I couldn't believe people were still around, or even discovering it! It really made me want to work hard.
20th-Feb-2011 08:36 pm (UTC)
I just read this, and even with a cold, and things going spectacularly badly at work, you made me smile like a loon the whole way through. The embedded podcasts and graphics were brilliant as well (and really well done). ♥♥♥
15th-Mar-2011 02:43 pm (UTC)
Thank you so much! I'm terribly happy it was a good pick-me-up :) Something with a silly premise like this needs to be feel-good, otherwise it's way too ridiculous!

Graphics were a gift from fandom gods (named curvasud!! I loooove them ♥ The podcasts were brilliant fun to make and share ♥ Originally it was just my voice, and then I discovered people actually wanted to be involved! Mindblowing! It turned out really well, and we all had fun doing it (yay, the best!) I hope this was reflected in the final product...
20th-Feb-2011 11:11 pm (UTC)
This was such an in-depth fic, and it was amazing. I spotted a few typos here and there, but for something of this depth, it was fantastic. A friend recommended it to me, and wished she could have seen my reactions to some of the twists, because I had all caps and was freakin' out. Great job!
15th-Mar-2011 02:48 pm (UTC)
Oh dear! I hope my beta doesn't see this, they may throw things if there are still typos abound! If you remember where they are, I'll rectify them straight away!

I don't remember having many twists, though perhaps my vision is skewed because I wrote it?? Ah well, I love me a good red herring (or three). I'm verily pleased at your reactions!

Also, recommendations rock! It's pretty cool to have someone know your tastes and direct you to things they think you'll like :) Thanks for your lovely feedback!
1st-Mar-2011 11:04 am (UTC)
This was wonderful. Love all the media really. (I've been out of the fandom loop... is it a recent thing? Or only a Merlin thing? Whatever it is, it's awesome.) Also the podcasts. Penn's voice is so perfect!! Totally cracky. XD

*wipes tears from face* Best story ever, srsly.
15th-Mar-2011 02:54 pm (UTC)
All right, someone thinks my voice is funny! Yay!

I don't think media is a Merlin only endeavour, but I'm glad it seems as though this fandom loves exploring the concept!

Glad you enjoyed it bb, thanks!
8th-Mar-2011 09:38 am (UTC)
This verse is really brilliant! I love all the props and illustrations and... It's absolutely fabulous!!!!!
15th-Mar-2011 03:08 pm (UTC)
Thanks! ♥
It was great fun to do, having others enjoy it as well makes me all :) :) :)
26th-Mar-2011 06:08 am (UTC)
So this has been sitting on my computer the past few days because from the MasterPost I could tell this deserved my undivided attention. SO HAPPY I CHOOSE TO DO THAT!!!! This is one of the best Merlin fics I've ever read! I love the use of all the media. The screen shots were brilliant, but I ADORED the podcasts to bits! :D I love your voice (and I think you did a podfic for A Story of Love and Menswear, and I loved it!)And of course the gorgeous art. So creative all of it!

This was too cute! I loved the plot. Arthur was adorable in a he's slightly insane way, but we still love him! And Merlin!!! *melts* I just wanted to hug him and never let go!!! The thought of him being a human (sexy) mannequin, being protective of Gwen, and just amazingly sweet makes me super jealous of Penn.

It awes me that this was crafted in kinkmeme and then reposted here. I really like the extras too (much flailing at the AVPM reference). Can't wait to read anything you write in the future!
27th-Mar-2011 10:08 am (UTC) - I have a few things to say in response to this comment
1. ♥
2. You listened to my podfic and podcasts?! ♥ ♥
3. YOU GOT MY AVPM REFERENCE? ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

Thank you soooo much!! I'm so happy! I'm pretty proud of what we achieved with this piece, but to get a lovely comment like this, even after all this time, is just the best! Poor Arthur, I do think one day I might write a bit of a companion piece trying to explain his brand of crazy a bit more...one day far, far into the future that is XD I'm very pleased you think Merlin is quite lovable ♥ In writing you try, but you never really know whether you succeed...

KMM is a pretty awesome place. It gave me the confidence to keep experimenting and keep writing. I'm unsurprised great things come from it! Thank you for your support bb :)

aærsældfjkjaætghjæfldsahgrældaskfjad

Let me just tell you exactly what I LOVED about this.
1.MERLIN is forever ADORABLE. I love the way you portrayed him in this story.
2. ARTHUR AND LEON STARRING AS PENN AND DUSTY. (LET ME DIE LET ME DIE)
3. HUNITH AND GAIUS. Especially Hunith.
4. All the interwebthingies! and oh my goat, let me die, cheesus take the wheel: ALL THE USERNAMES. Slash_dragon? ASRJFldKAARGLSKDAFÆL
5. Arthur being adorably awkward yet somehow amazing and brilliant, spying on Merlin. And being totally head over heals completely hopelessly in love.
6. That entire 'Morgana calling Arthur, Merlin looking in the bushes, almost finding Arthur, Leon interfering' scene thingy. JUST SO AWESOME.
7. FLIRTING VIA TEXT MESSAGES.
8. FREYA AND GWEN. JUST IN GENERAL. AND ALWAYS. ALL DAY. EVERYDAY. DRESSING MERLIN. ESPECIALLY IN SKIRTS.
9. Lancelot being creepy and forward xD
10. A LOT OF MORE AMAZING STUFF I JUST DON'T REMEMBER RIGHT NOW BECAUSE I AM STILL HIGH ON THE AMAZINGNESS OF THIS.

/long love note.
