There's honestly no such thing as a stupid question -- but I'm afraid I can't rule out giving a stupid answer : : To Posterity and Beyond!

Here is Warner chapter 2.

This makes me feel good. When I realize how long the "takes and edits" take me to read 58 seconds of Warner, it makes me feel like i am much more productive on my other recordings where 20 minutes recording only takes me about 4 to 5 hours. At the rate i do Warner, 20 minutes of my normal project would take me 20 hours.

So if anything doesn't fit your directorial goals, feel free to ask me to re-do or edit!

Warner is PL OK! :thumbs:

I agree, the editing and checking takes much longer than the actual recording!

Watson again, a couple of lovely shorties:

https://librivox.org/uploads/rapunzelina/hislastbow_04_watson.mp3 (6.32)
https://librivox.org/uploads/rapunzelina/hislastbow_05_watson.mp3 (6.37)

I was looking at the rest of the stories, and the final one seems to be written in the third person. I wonder if that might be better with a different narrator entirely? That is, with Watson's lines inserted as just another character, since I'd find it a bit odd to talk about 'myself' like that.

Now you mention it, I think you are right. I'll fix the script and add a new Watson section separate from the narrator.

OK, I've gone back and changed all that and requested a new narrator for that chapter only. You only have about 6 lines in Chapter 12 now!

I think under the circumstances I *am* going to need a voice credit for you as Dr John Watson though, in the other chapters, but don't do it until I've PLed those chapters, just in case there are any other changes. But please put one in for the first chapter of each story, where it is marked in the scripts. (Chapters 1, 3, 4, 6, 8, 9, 10 and of course 12.) There will not be a voice credit section in the chapters which are a second part of a story - I've got them all together in the first part.
