Summary: "Stiles always tries to protect the ones he loves, but sometimes he's the one who needs protection. (Or, in which Stiles is a werewolf and Derek didn't make him that way.)"

Reccer Notes: heardtheowl has a great way of taking really intense (and sometimes frightening) stories and making them not less frightening or intense, but less stressful. I don't mean that her clear and articulate reading diminishes the story in any way, but makes it less isolating - I'm not alone in the experience of the story, the way I am when reading the written version. I can trust that her voice will take me through the angst and hurt and into the (excellent!) comfort. All of which says that you should go listen to other podfic by this reader pronto.
You should listen to this one specifically because, quite frankly, she did a really great job. It's a tricky story - there are a number of flashbacks, some really intense dialogue, a lot of really heavy (and intense!) emotions flying around, and heardtheowl handled it all very deftly. She reads clearly and well, uses affect without overdoing it, and carries the listener through the story very well. Also the sex scene was really hot <3
