Channel link I do audio readings and can be quite silly. My tagline is "Candidly Sanguine," and my career goal is to become an actuary.

My Little Audio Reading Credo

When I draw my sources from FimFiction.net, I tend to look at a few things: the genre, the quality of the writing, how easily I can read it, and how popular it is. The stories I read rarely come from the Feature Box on here, and, if they do, I make sure it's been a long time since they've been featured. I don't chase after "hot" stories. I also refuse to do readings of works for which I know there already exist audio readings. I don't find competition to be a bad thing, but there's a lot out there worth reading that hasn't been audio read yet, and it would be contradictory to this credo to perform something already recognized.

I do readings of dark fictions and generally serious and poignant works. I don't do romance works, especially not erotica, right now because I don't feel I would be genuine enough to make worthwhile readings for such stories, thus I don't feel comfortable doing them. I also don't read crossovers; I'm not a part of most of the fandoms the crossovers are made for, anyway.

I enjoy doing audio readings although I don't do them as often as I'd like to. I do them for my personal enjoyment and also for acting practice. However, I hardly feel right in audio reading the stuff that is immediately and presently getting attention. As such, I feel it is my place to do audio readings for stories that I think may have "slipped through the cracks" -- stories that may have been featured at some point but nobody got around to audio reading -- and stories that I think are grievously under-appreciated -- stories that render me disappointed on the author's behalf because they are so good but unrecognized.

A lot of people on here consider having free audio readings done for their stories to be an honor, and from this I reserve my choice to do audio readings for instances where I can extol authors for their worthwhile work. I understand that I don't have a whole lot of influence or a vast following to help bring these authors the recognition I feel they deserve and deeply regret that there are not a ton of ways, besides blatant solicitation, that I can move people to read their work. I understand that going out for the underdogs of fanfiction, instead of starting out reading what's considered to be on top, may preclude me from obtaining the "pull" and entourage, both of which I desire both for garnering extra exposure for these authors and for myself. However, I ascertain that fair is not foul and that foul is not fair; I will not let these principles be compromised. I may only be giving these stories a second chance in the vast and furiously competitive circles of the internet, but I attest as a statistician that a second throw of the dice never hurts.

EQD Posted the Readings for "Reconnection" and "Breaking the Circle" · 10:40pm July 9th

Well, as Sethisto said in response to my complaint, they've not had an approval mod for audio readings on Equestria Daily for several months. I was directed to refer my submission to the Nightly Roundup section for posting, and lo' and behold: it got featured, each video. :rainbowkiss:
