Re: [HISTORY] Fires and Fire-fighters by John KENLON - jo

Hooray! I have found a way to record again! I connected an old computer to my monitor, keyboard, and mouse, activated Audacity via a flash drive, and connected my microphone. Eureka! It works! I recorded Chapter 5 of "Fires and Firefighters" this evening! I will try to get it edited over the next co...

Re: Experiment: Collaborative Letter-Story Game

Letter 38 is up! If anything is contradictory or you don't like it, please feel free to change it... Marillin seems to have given up on John and is now turning to someone else for help! I just read Letter 38! I see you finally found a way to bring Henry into the plot -- I like it! And I like Marill...

Re: Happy Pi day everybody!

Every year for Pi Day, I tell my work colleagues and friends about this LV recording of the First Fifty Digits of Pi. This year, my supervisor cracked up so much she nearly fell off her chair. Success!

Re: Experiment: Collaborative Letter-Story Game

She might also be able to frame her actions as having been done in an effort to protect both Jane and herself. If she didn't kidnap Jane, John would have, and he may have been harsher in her treatment. She could claim that she intended to return her all the while, as soon as she got the slip from J...

Re: Experiment: Collaborative Letter-Story Game

Something crossed my mind as I reread letter 37. Why would Marillin do this? She really had practically nothing to gain by it. So did she figure that they would find out the truth anyway and give Jane up? Or...did Jane escape and she was merely trying to cover it up? I was trying to make two earlie...

Re: Experiment: Collaborative Letter-Story Game

Letter 37 is up. Sorry this one turned out to be so terribly long. Angela apologizes to Patricia for her lengthiness on grounds that she needed to get all the day's events off her chest. It was, to say the least, quite an eventful day.

Re: Experiment: Collaborative Letter-Story Game

Is John trying to get the house also, or just money? I'm inclined to think he doesn't want the house, because it has too many associations with his family. But then, maybe he just wants it for the prestige and increasing his net wealth, while he plans to reside elsewhere. It makes a difference, bec...

Re: Experiment: Collaborative Letter-Story Game

The other possibility that I had considered was that perhaps Jane wrote the letter, but Marillin didn't allow her to send it, because it too explicitly named the perpetrators. On the other hand, I don't understand how John could expect to escape punishment. He must be known in order to receive anyt...

Re: Experiment: Collaborative Letter-Story Game

I just realized something. Jane addressed her letter from captivity to her mother at their home. But Laura has come post-haste to the Armstrong's house as soon as she heard Jane was abducted. This explains why nobody is definitely sure if it was John and Marillin behind it, why they seem to be just ...

Re: Experiment: Collaborative Letter-Story Game

Letter 35 is up. William hardly knows how to address his awful suspicions!

(Also, I made the correction from Armitage to Armstrong in my earlier letter. Thanks, Beth, for catching that embarrassing typo!)

Re: Experiment: Collaborative Letter-Story Game

Oh my goodness! What a plot twist! Uncle John is even worse than I had imagined! Who will save Jane?!
