This isn’t a story with a deeper meaning. There is no moral at the end. On December 28th, 2007, Sam Winchester walked out of the motel room he was sharing with his brother and never came back. This is the story of what happened after.

Reader's Notes

This was something of an experiment for me. I'm sure everyone knows this story, it's infamous in fandom. I'm not sure I did it justice, quite frankly. I was trying to match the tone when I read, and trying to convey the stylistic choice [livejournal.com profile] mimblexwimble made when she wrote her dialogue without quotation marks. I'm honestly not sure if I succeeded, but I tried. It didn't help that I can't read this story without crying. One day I will learn to podfic happy stories.

Before anyone built towers or became kings that hide from councils or thought five hundred steps was some kind of actual challenge, there was a prince, a sorcerer, and a sea serpent in a river. But really, it started well before that. Because first, there was a prince, and silence, and a secret that was no secret at all.

In the process, Merlin racks up an impressive series of treasonous crimes: insolence, incompetence, tripping while running for his life, and accusing the crown prince of snoring are only the beginning.

    I have wanted to record this for a long time, and Chelle was kind enough to give me permission about six months ago to do it. I didn't know when I signed up for podfic big bang and requested permission to record this one that it is, in fact the [livejournal.com profile] mmom. I think that this selection is perfect for that. I'm also very glad that the inhumane policies decried by this fic are now in our past. Thanks to Chelle, whose fic I have been reading since my first foray in to fandom, when she wrote Enterprise fic, and to [livejournal.com profile] revolutionaryjo, who is terrific and great to work with. Also thanks so much to [livejournal.com profile] eosrose for undertaking to mod this podfic big bang.

    Since I was one of the earliest podficcers to use music and sound effects extensively, it may surprise you to find none at all in this fic. I really have no handy explanation for why that is.

    This is my first podfic of a notfic, and it was very fun (and sometimes very challenging) to make. I love this story and have been wanting to record it for ages—it's silly and fun and sweet and sexy and totally hilarious. It's a high school AU and can be understood without prior knowledge of bandom. Enjoy!

    This was far more rushed than I would ideally like for it to be due to RL interference, so I apologize if it's not as polished as it could be. For a full list of sound effect sources and songs, see my journal post.

    Designer's Notes

    I fell in love with this fic the first time I read it, and now I'm just even more in love. This is probably my favorite cover art I've ever gotten to make (how often do you have a reason to make a manip of a fox and wolf playing, really?) so hopefully everyone else enjoys it just as much.
