Reader's notes: This story tied my heart into a knot, the way stories that really engage with the lasting constrictions of homophobia sometimes can. It hurt to read, and I loved it before I was even halfway through. I knew I wanted to record it, and instead of waiting to approach it in an even, considered manner, I decided to tackle it while my emotional reaction to it was still bright in my mind. It's a different recording for it -- better or worse, I can't say, though I'll freely admit it's less finely polished than it might have been otherwise. But I know that when I listen to podfic, part of what I love is knowing that another person did this: sat down in a room and got themselves set up, with cars going by and with the occasional mispronunciation, just because they connected to the story and wanted to share that with others. I like hearing how a story spoke to someone else. This is my attempt to do that, and not overthink it.

Should anyone else record this story (and I hope they will), I'll be first in line to download it and hear what they heard. :)
