Summary: In which Gamzee falls victim to food poisoning and Karkat has to do some quick thinking in order to help pay the bills on time. Another bit of fluff set in Emily Hu's 4Chords AU.
I first recorded this back around New Year's, when I was sick as a dog with some foul kennel cough my sister brought back with her from basic training. I wanted podfic to keep me company so bad (and I'd been reading my favorite sickfics on repeat), I sat down and read through the whole thing using just the built-in speaker on my laptop in the middle of the night. I'm pretty sure I was feverish, and ought to have been in bed, asleep. This copy, riddled with coughs and nigh unintelligible from feedback and a poorly placed, overworked fan noise, is no longer among the living. Sometime later in January I re-read the whole thing, this time after unearthing an actual microphone and with fewer coughs, although I guess it was when my ears were still wonky because the pacing is totally overcompensating for the fact that I had to concentrate waaaaaay too hard on the enunciation. I still think that it's a bit too slow (and I just realized that I can hear the clock ticking in the background at the beginning. *headdesk*), but hopefully that's alright. =]
I have a bunch of favorite parts in this fic (*cough*thewholedamnthing*cough*), but I had to keep re-doing Gamzee's lines because every time I tried them, I'd bust out laughing. I mean really. Motherfucking Prego.
I would also like to recommend that you don't do the bulk of your editing while sitting in a crowded Starbucks with peppy jazz playing in the house speakers. It's distracting, to say the least. =T
As usual, please leave any feedback you have in the comments! I would really love to hear your opinion of the recording, especially areas for improvement!
