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.

Birthday and Misc. Updates · 9:54pm Monday

My birthday was nice. I didn't get to play as much Fallout: New Vegas as I would have liked to have played, but all in all, it was nice.

We had lasagna and garlic bread (guaranteed effective kidnap bait for me) and an ice cream cake. I got a couple books from the Skyrim Anthology, some nice cards, some cash, and a tablet holder.

Hehe it's been awhile since I've blog anything although one author enlighten me on some stories that I should check it out.

What stories did he or she recommend? Or would you prefer not to say? I tend not to say what stories I'm planning to read to most people, so I understand if you don't want to. :pinkiesmile:

I'm planning on doing the hooked chat horror text messages tales and maybe in the "Lost Tapes" department.

I believe you may have mentioned that to me before. :rainbowderp:

I'm doing great glad to hear from you my friend and yes it was AMAZING! the voicing was spectacular, the narration spot on outstanding. I hope everything going great with you and keep me in touch if you can and I'll do the same.

Even better to hear that you are well! I'm glad you found it so good. I actually don't know a whole lot of people IRL who would like the type of works that I voice, especially the horror aspect. I'll do my best to keep in touch! Lately, it's been arduous just keeping touch with all the school people and potential hiring people I've been seeing. I can't wait to be done with this, if at least temporarily.

Eyy! It's Shadowlaw! :rainbowdetermined2: Long time, no speak! How are you?

You liked Like a Babbling Brook? :pinkiehappy: Thanks for your input! I'm glad you did. It's been a while since I've attempted a short, straightforward horror reading, so I had a couple concerns about my voicing for it, but it now sounds like I did a fair job.

Is it something that I might be able to help you find? :twilightsmile:

Hello DizzyDan, long time no see I love the last story you narrated it literally have me on the edge though I'm looking for something quite interesting well, I'll let you know when I find it my friend.
