Entry #10-3439

“This Narhiri woman has become somewhat of an annoyance to me. When I got word from Lisa Curie, she reported that Emrakul has been detected on Innistrad.

According to her, her mercenaries detected Nahiri and some cult having to do with Emrakul entering the plane.

And….”

[Jovan sighs]

“…… And somehow the Gatewatch, a planeswalker from Kamigawa, and a Dominarian planeswalker did what they could and ended up dealing away Emrakul on a moon.

Then Lisa reported that Nahiri did this because of this Vampire names Sorin Markov. And it has something to do with the Eldrazis on Zendikar.

It seemed personal and I don’t condone Nahiri use of the Eldrazis in this manner.

I had the Order of the Blins Eternities be kept aware of the planeswalker and have her apprehended.

I have my reasons.”

Time Stops

Time Stops

I have a theory - time stops at certain hours. Today it was 5:53 pm. Today I caught it again. I recorded its voice. I took its image. I hope that you will understand - if you hear it, if you see it.

Time stops. Maybe in the near future I will tell you more: how I found about this phenomenon, how I keep chasing it (day and night), how I keep falling in love with it every single time I succeed in catching it.

I promise - I will tell you all about it. Because I want you to be part of it. I want you to experience it - feel, taste, see, hear, smell it. Because sometimes it is all of the above… but sometimes it is only one of them. Here I can give you only a hint - it makes me sad that I can work only with the hear and the see. I hope it would be enough for you. I hope it would lead you to the feel, the taste and the smell.

Listen, time stops. Can you see it?

Entry #10-3450

[There ate sounds of swords clashing. Jovan is using one sword, Gisela is using two. Jovan knocks Gisela down, she groans a bit. It’s sounds like they’ve been training for ours.]

Jovan: “Don’t ever go where your enemy leads you.”

[Gisela gets up. More swords clash. She is knocked down again.]

Jovan: Don’t repeat the same move or pattern over and over; it’s give things away. The only expection for this when you’re planning to deceive your enemy.

[Gisela sighs and refuses to fight, sitting where she is. Jovan can be heard walking over to sit next to her]

Gisela: I don’t feel like what I use to be.

Jovan: I know you can use your wings, and I know I should’ve have brought you back like this. Yet, you and your sister can live new lives. The soul traps I have can help you planeswalk without a spark.

Gisela: …….. I just want to return to Innistrad—

Jovan: Now, now, you have to be careful. There are memories that will bring severe headaches. I don’t want that happening to you. Returning to your home will make it worse.

[Gisela takes a deep breath, not understanding planeswalking. The name of her home plane and events before Avacyn’s madness is all she can remember without getting painful flashbacks.]

Gisela: So….. I cant return home, but I can start a new life in these other worlds?

Jovan: Planes Actually, But yes, that’s the truth.

[Jovan gets up and picks up the recorder]

Jovan: If you want to live somewhere other than Fiora, give the word to me.

Deleted Audio Diary #[unknown] - Recovered

“This is Jovan Marlauu with an unusual discovery of Eldrazified angels and melded Eldrazified subjects.

De-Eldrazifying an angel via accelerated growth and surgical means didn’t affect the fusion. The angels, Gisela and Bruna are the only example and it’s questionable for other Eldrazi meld subjects.

Their original fusion looked like that way I found their corpse, but when the two are de-Eldrazified it was astonishing.

Despite the missing arm and the scarred wings, they resulted into being no longer some Voice of Nightmares, but instead Nightmares Subdued.

This fusion is a typical angel with two pairs of wings. Their have some disabilities: a weak right arm and eyes that are slightly blind.

And the fusion is not the best part; they can unfuse by will. I can research why this is possible, but I’m researching Eldrazis, not the power of fusion and defusion.”

♥ it’s time to spread your podcast palette ♥

And the palette continues! Here we are again with the third installment to Broaden Your Podcast Palette, the one and only 2015 rendition. Before the holiday season ends and 2016 begins, be sure to take time out of your day to appreciate the newest additions to the audio drama community.

Are you searching for a hero? Wanna get away from reality? Someone to talk to? Perhaps you need to have a double take on that skeleton in your closet?

Looking for something fresh to please that sudden thirst for audio storytelling? Look no further as PodCake has six more podcasts you’ll certainly love.

1. Audio Diary of a Superhero

In the fact of a smear campaign by the International Department of Superhuman Oversight, Adria Collins releases her audio journal in a bimonthly podcast.

The life of a superhero seems glamorous at first glance, but Laura Henderson’s Audio Diary of a Superhero begs to differ. It’s only occurred to me now that no podcast I’ve come across has dealt with superheroes and if this is the first, let it certainly be an inspiration to your inner comic book nerd.

Told with excellent imagery and some gracious swearing, this show provides an interesting deconstruction of superhuman ability paired with the pain of disability. Juggling the two can’t be easy but Adria Collin’s quest to beat the odds is inspiring, funny, and…certainly super.

2. The Elysium Project

The Elysium Project follows those who are pulled into the world of a powerful formula that allows its subject to manipulate the world around them based on thought and desire.

And thus sci-fi rears its mechanical head once more. But this time, we have something a little different than your usual aliens and space travel. Try to consider the above synopsis to be a question to ask yourself: How badly do you desire control?

Manipulating reality sounds like a lot of fun until you learn that perhaps having everything you wanted from simple thought alone may not be all it’s cracked up to be. Fast, smart, and gripping from the start, creator Natalie Van Sistine delivers The Elysium Project on a silver platter and begs you hang on for dear life.

3. The Bunker

The Bunker is a breakfast radio show for the post-apocalypse generation. Set in the year 2414, the series chronicles the misadventures of David, Dave, and Tom as they struggle to a one hour radio programme from their underground bunker.

The apocalypse can’t be all bad, right? As long as we have radio, we can preserve the art of entertainment and communication and if we wish really hard, things might just turn up …living. What more could you ask for when the air is barely breathable and basic resources are a rarity to a dying population?

Listen to The Bunker, and suddenly the bleakness of a destroyed earth doesn’t seem some glum anymore. In this British comedy, we listen in on the last radio station after the end of the world for short stories, drama, and a warm helping of tea and biscuits.

4. King Falls AM

King Falls AM centers on a lonely little mountain town’s late-night AM talk radio show and its paranormal, peculiar happenings and inhabitants.

Moving to a new town for a new job can be stressful, especially when this new town may not be the modest little grove of trees and sunny faces you previously expected.

Slip into something comfortable and listen in on King Falls AM, your favorite talk show about a mountain town that is a lot more bizarre than it seems. This is your go-to podcast for the paranormal and a good laugh about a kooky community and the banter of our two hosts as they tackle the strange whereabouts of King Falls.

5. The Black Tapes

The Black Tapes is a weekly podcast from the creators of Pacific Northwest Stories, and is hosted by Alex Regan. The Black tapes Podcast is a serialized docudrama about one journalist’s search for the truth, her subject’s mysterious past, and the literal and figurative ghosts that haunt them both. Do you believe?

Do you believe in ghosts? This is likely a question you’ve been asked before and The Black Tapes runs with it in this brilliant documentary about the hidden horrors of the world.

This is a show that truly makes you question the events around you. How much of it is based on a plain of existence you are comfortable with? Are you willing to question what may happen after death? What is and what isn’t human? Then The Black Tapes is for you.

6. Limetown

Ten years ago, over three hundred men, women, and children disappeared from a small town in Tennessee, never to be heard from again. In this seven-part podcast, American Public Radio host Lisa Haddock asks the question once more, “What happened to the people of Limetown?

Oh my, I think I just felt a breeze! There’s a chill running up my spine, I just know it. It might be because I’m writing this next to an open window during a dark, rainy October night or because something as thrilling and creepy as Limetown exists and is here to stay.

Much like The Black Tapes, Limetown knows the most horrifying things are the one’s that hit closest to home. What’s more creepy and mysterious than a deserted town? Lisa Haddock is on the case and you should take part in her journey.

now, get to listening.

Adira: *on top of Temptress holding her down* You are defeated

Temptress: You forgot about my secret weapon…

Temptress: It can only be defused by kissing me on the mouth

Adira: 

Adira: You know you could’ve just asked me out instead of taking over this city?

Temptress:  I’M AWKWARD OK

Marco Diaz Audio Log
Isolated Frequencies
Marco Diaz Audio Log

Marco records another entry in his ongoing audio diary log.

This is another idea I had help with putting together with @necrosishead. This is the first installment of “Marco’s audio log” (name is in progress, will be better later), it’s pretty much an AU of good ol’ Marco having an ongoing recording of events and such from his perspective. Who knows what kind of stuff we’ll see hear.

Here’s the dialogue: This is Marco making another entry in the log…. never really know how to start these… It’s been business as usual, well, as usual as it’s been since Star’s showed up, ha-ha, never a dull moment. Been practicing karate a lot more, considering the number of times Ludo’s been trying to get the wand recently, now I can train harder knowing I’ll be fighting alongside Star. Man! That girl can fight! So I have to stay strong if I want to keep up with her. I also have to be careful what I say around her. Like when I told her that the fortune cookie’s fortunes were true. Now THAT, was a mistake. It was a bit silly at first, even a little adorable, but booooy did that spiral out quickly. Especially when that resulted in me having to fight Ludo’s minion on my own for a bit. Maybe I should train with the possibility of Star not being by my……. side….. Nah, why wouldn’t she be there? I mean, ever since she’s been here she’s…. well, been THERE. Friends have to stick together! I have to trust in star like she trusts in me! Okay! I have to go, I gotta practice! Diaz out!

Frank Fontaine | “The Longest Con” | BioShock in Apollo Square

Frank Fontaine: Never play a man for the short con when you can play ‘em for the long one. Atlas is the longest con of all. Ryan wanted Frank Fontaine dead, I just gave him what he wanted. As Atlas, I got a new face, a clean record, and a fresh start. Now it’s time to take back Rapture and -

Diane McClintock: … Ryan did. I can’t wait to tell Atlas. He’ll be so pleased…

Frank Fontaine (Using Atlas’ voice): Uhh, Miss McClintock… what are you doing here? Let me just… (Back to normal voice) turn this off…
