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!

I just finished reading this and I LOVED IT! I love stories where there are images/facebook caps, etc! It makes it seem more real <3

social networking is such a big part of our lives now that I really wanted to write a story that could use the various formats to tell as much of the story as possible! Plus, writing those bits was super fun :D I'm glad you liked it, thank you so much for dropping a line ♥

I love this fic soooo much! I was wondering, was there any specific podcast that gave you inspiration?
5th-Jan-2012 07:58 am (UTC)
Thank you! The Drive Thru radio show is inspired by Hamish and Andy, who are two popular radio hosts in Australia. They have a very good sense of humour and great banter with each other.

Hello! I just wanted to say that you are amazing, and that this fic is AWESOME. It's so creepy to admit this, but I downloaded the Drivethru podcasts and I listen to them almost daily. It's like having friends in my iPod! :-D

I'm genuinely glad to have discovered your journal, and I have so much to thank you for because your podfics really made my day(s). Thank you so much! ♥♥♥

Hei! I read your story in one go last night, it was a lot of fun, congrats! :3 The podcasts were hilarious. :D

Ta, jyusan! I'm glad you had fun :)

This is SO CUTE. Perfect!! I love multi-meda fics in the first place, but omfg this whole thing was just. I want to SQUEEZE MERLIN so hard he's just the cutest. Everyone is the cutest. Lancelot is such a creepy creep, Hunith is freaking hilarious, Morgana is badass... and Arthur hahahaha oh Arthur. This whole thing is PERFECT. Congrats on finishing it!! It would terrify me to take on such a huge project like this. But you did it PERFECTLY!! Thank you for writing this! :)

Thank you so much! tbh, when I started writing this, I never imagined that it would balloon into a 34k+ word count! That's just ridiculous, srsly. Without all the support from fandom, this would never have finished :) (And I'm just as surprised as you are that the story is as cohesive as it is, considering how little change it underwent from kkm to here!) I had such fun characterising everybody, and I'm so pleased it gave you a laugh!

I found this through a Master Fic (http://ceridwensworld.com/MerlinModern.html) dedicated to Merlin AU. I have to say that this was a beautiful work of art. I loved it from beginning to end.
I'm sad to see it end, I even read the drabbles that you created for the deleted scenes and podcasts (loved them!).
I was wondering, though, if you were thinking of making this into an ebook? I would love a Kindle version of it! Please say you will?

Thank you so much! I'm so happy you enjoyed yourself so much, and very pleased you liked the silly extras. This is an e-book version of the story kindly compiled with snottygrrl:


Hopefully it works with your kindle!
