American Accent Attempt  
I talked about this a bit on the repodding podcast - but that's Saturday, so I'll break it down for you. I've been informed that paraka talks about me in today's podcast, but as of now I don't know what she said, so anyway...

Podfic is FANTASTIC for experimentation!

I podfic in a fandom where the characters are all American. I am very much NOT American, I'd say I have a fairly obvious Southern English BBC accent - or what some people call Received Pronunciation. For Accent Day I wanted to experiment with reading a podfic in the accent of the characters. I chose to take an existing podfic because, I felt this was the best way as, a) I'd get a bit of help from listening to how shiningartifact reads and b) if I fail and people think this version is unlistenable, I haven't ruined a fic people love and they can run over to shiningartifact for comfort and reassurance. To make that easier for people, here is a link to that AMAZING version. I'm going to post a 'Straight' (!) repod version on repodding day. MULTIPLE VERSIONS are awesome people - embrace it!

DISCLAIMER: I AM ATTEMPTING A NORTH AMERICAN ACCENT. NO AMERICANS WERE HARMED DURING THE MAKING OF THIS PODFIC. NO OFFENCE IS MEANT. (Also, I am trying out my new mic, and I haven't worked out the kinks yet).
