I was at Costco today and they had season one of SG-1, SGA and SGU for $7.99 a piece. 

Just wanted to spread the word in case anyone wanted to get a few to give as gifts or get them for themselves, of course. *g*

We would like to re-introduce you to….Force over Distance, Chapter 1 :D

Re-Recording the Early Chapters

As we enter the homestretch of recording Force over Distance, CWR and I have begun the process of re-recording the early chapters, to bring them into stylistic alignment with the rest of the audio.  A lot has changed since we started - my equipment, our collaborative process and my skill level as a performer, to name a few :)  

As we finish each re-record, I’ll upload them and replace the current chapters - until they’re all up, this is going to create some auditory cognitive dissonance, as you go from the current polished recordings to the earlier ones - alas, the creative process is messy.  We anticipate completing the re-recording right about the time we finish the final chapters, and thus your patience will be rewarded with the finished production all at once :) 

The composite downloads are being re-organized - they’re not all posted yet, but will be within a day or two.  Meanwhile, stream/DL the individual chapters here:

An Orientation Post for the New Peeps :)

A surprising number of new people have popped up here lately; hello new people!  With Designations-the-text completed and Designations-the-podfic picking up speed - plus something happening in the SGU-verse (is SciFi rerunning the eps or something??) - there’s a lot of activity around both stories, Force over Distance as well.  So here’s an orientation post, and a welcome to any newcomers I somehow missed (I do try to greet everyone as they appear but I’m sure I miss some here and there - apologies! :)

I’m elementals - hi!  This tumblr is here to keep listeners informed of new chapters (and finished projects in existence) of our audiobook/podfic collaborations for cleanwhiteroom’s most excellent stories.  

I’m the narrator/voice artist as well as webmaster, sound engineer and fanart curator for CWR’s work - feel free to hit me up with questions about just about anything :)

With CWR in the director’s chair, we are very exacting with the audiobooks.  We tailor the acting in an almost hybrid style somewhere between the usual audiobook read, and more of a radio-play-type, emotionally invested performance (some times with full sound effects, depending on the project).  We spend a lot of time working on character voicing, everything from capturing the timbre and sound of the actors to the delivery and psychology of the characters.  The process is great fun - also incredibly time consuming, frustrating, revelatory, exhausting and full of delight :)

The goal is to make audiobooks that are compelling, immersive, delightful, and that reveal layers to the text that you may not have caught on the page.  If I can bring you to tears - and tears of laughter - leave you breathless or knock you over with the beauty of CWR’s writing, then I consider my work on this art completely worth our investment of time and energy. 

Like any artist, I want to make something captivating - and I sincerely hope you are moved, spellbound and glued to your headphones by what CWR and I create :)

The audiobooks are available streaming (at AO3, at each of our websites and via iTunes) and for download (both websites) in zipped MP3 form, individual MP3s or M4B audiobook format with chaptering etc.  There are detailed commentaries by each of us as well.  Links below will take you anywhere you’d like to go to listen, read and check out all the beautiful fanart and music created for each story.  Enjoy!

Annnnd the new people keep on coming :D

Anonymous said: If you braved Rush/Young to read Force Over Distance, you should definitely consider giving Mathématique a go too:) It's my favourite, tbh.

I’ve been meaning to read that one actually! I’ve literally read EVERY SGU fic on fanfic.net and AO3. 

I really should be working on my backlog of fics but I mean I guess I could put it off for awhile longer…

Thank you Nonny for reminding me of this! Check back soon and I’ll tell you how I’m doing thus far! :D Feel free to come off of nonny too if you want. I love all my Rushlings. <3

I love Mathematique, my fave AU Rush. I ship Rush with pretty much everyone on the show but in canon he and Young had such a messed up relationship, it’s nice to have AU’s where they get along, in spite of their differences.

You are using your newfound giffing abilities for the great good, Ripper.

Not for the great good, JRD, but…


Oh God. I’m doing that convulsing silent laugh that hurts.
You realize you’re unstoppable now? You write. You draw. You gif.
You could take over the world.
