eugeniawatson: Carey Mulligan as Genie (melancholy)
[personal profile] eugeniawatson
I tried to picture my Dad without Sherlock and I couldn’t do it. I’d never known my Dad without Sherlock. I’d never been without him, either. I knew I was being dramatic, but I couldn’t help but worry that if he never came back, or if he died, that all of it would be just broken into a million pieces. Mum would be okay, she’d deal with it. Dad and me might not be so okay. I think even I would be okay eventually, but Dad? I don’t think so. I think that if you’re in love with a man like Sherlock, you’re done for. There’s just no moving on from that. Who could possibly compare?

This is me, still procrastinating, obvs...But leaving a thank you note and feedback place-holder surely is a proper reason to procrastinate, right?

New listener here, just popping in to leave a little feedback. I LOVE listening to these! Your performance as Eugenia is great, and you do a splendid job with the other characters as well. I'd actually not read this fic before, so it's been a real treat to discover it through your recordings. The only hard part is that I've decided NOT to let myself read ahead and find out what happens, so I'm a bit on edge with the current story arc! (I think it's ultimately more fun to keep myself waiting, though.)

So yeah, thanks! These have been really nice to listen to while I'm at work or busy with knitting projects, and I look forward to hearing the rest. :)

Time keeps on slippin' ...

(yes, I'm finished with all my house-cleaning, I'm sure you were dying to know. ;P)

I think it goes without saying that I am a big fan of your work, so the usual gushing applies.

Yes, I still have a Pavlovian response to your voice (grinning uncontrollably), yes I still adore your accent and I still consider myself and extremely lucky person because you, the Queen of Podfic on Odd-numbered Days*, and I seem to have v similar fic tastes (other than share a good number of fandoms), which means I can download any of your podfic and know I'll like not only the performace, but the story in itself.

This is nothing new.

The new bit is the following: I truly think you outdid yourself with this podfic.

Firstly, you normally podfic upbeat or downright funny stoies (or at least the ones I've listened to - I think I have listened to almost everything you have done, but I'm not 100% sure). I'm actually v happy you go for that sort of story, podfic is comfort for me and I also happen to think you have excellent comedic timing and fics with humour in them lend themselves especially well to your performance style (I always have this impression you must have a smile on your lips as you read).

However, this story is full of drama and pathos and the fact that it's first-person narration means you get to showcase all your performing (acting?) chops. And, WOW. Your emotional range truly impressed me.

I don't get moved very easily while reading or listening (I think my tearducts must be wired to my eyesight or something, I cry v easily with films or tv, instead), but the last two instalments of the blog, as Eugenia's fear and feeling of powerlessness grow, you expressed all tha raw emotions so perfectly I found myself tearing up (!). If it had been theatre...I'd have stood up and clapped (ruining the moment and earning a few boos and hisses from the rest of the public, I suspect).

Other than that, I adore the way you portrayed Genie. I think that in one of your free-talks at the end of the first two big monthly files you said you've found this story particularly fun and challenging because you got to put so much of yourself in Eugenia, as it's easier to identify with a 16-year.old girl or some such, and you were able to do things that playing canon characters normally won't allow you to...It shows. Your Eugenia is as much fun to listen to as it was to play, in my opinion.

Oh well, I'd better stop here. If this is too embarrassing to reply to, no worries. I understand. I'd be a bit creeped out by my over-enthusiasm, if I were you.

*I love [personal profile] pandarus's stuff as much as I love yours, so I decided you two can have the dubious title of queen of my podfic-lover heart on alternating days.

Just wanted to reiterate that you don't have to reply to my gushy feedback, now or in the future. I was feeling a bit embarrassed after posting this, to be honest. So, no answer is totally fine. :D
