Hey, Ava & co.! Gonna try and get in on the ground floor with this one. Can I snag Section 13, A Few Words About the Devil?

Also, if I'm supposed to wait until this is posted in the proper project forum (Short Works or such) before volunteering, I apologize for jumping the gun! Still learning the minutiae of how things work in these parts!

You can claim as soon as there's a Magic Window. :wink: I like to stay in the Launch Pad for a few days so people can see what's coming up.

Section 13 is yours!
Please be extra careful with your filenames - they were all wrong in my last project... :P

Stared and glared at the filename and your template for an UNSETTLING amount of time before submitting...ANYHOO, here's section 13 for you! I gave it a listen on my end, but let me know if anything needs to be revisited!

Chapter 13 is PL OK.

You've got some good quality recording equipment so it picked up some background noise at various points. It's completely up to you whether you want to edit the following small squeaks/knocks/other noises:

~5:06, 5:31, 12:16, 15:30
