Grizzle act 2
https://librivox.org/uploads/toddhw/tomthumb_lordgrizzle_2.mp3
Apologies to Sonia if this is a bit rude. I did not write it 👹
ah no worries, Alan, it takes a lot to shock me. I am generally unfazed :lol: Well Grizzle surely has a bit of a lecher problem here. I pity Huncamunca whose two options seem to be equally not very electable. :|

But great job salivating yourself through this scene. :thumbs: PL ok. Looking forward what Grizzle will dish up next.

Thank you

Sonia

here's your loving and gentle Queen Dollallolla (don't you dare call me Dolly :evil: )

Still sober in the first act (one needs to be sober to plot vengeance - the evil laugh at the end is right out of Maleficent) but showing some signs of hangover at the beginning of Act 3. Well it was a rough night, is all I can say to my defense. :mrgreen:

Oh and I hope you like my dying groan and can find a use for it. :9: ("kills the Queen" would be an appropriate spot 8-) )

Howsabout "Lolla"?

In Act 1, there are two blank underlines that are footnoted as perhaps being impolite words methinks. I suggest "BLANK!" as appropriate at 0:43 and 1:31. (This is different from top of p60 where the blank has no footnote, and there I think your sigh is already a perfect fit.)

I love the evil laugh at the end of Act 1 and the dying groan at the end of act 3. I shall make use of them. (Perhaps as blackmail material on some other project where your reading is ready for some spicing up....)

Act 3 is already PL OK.

Thanks, Todd

That's only if you can still find them in that uploader folder of yours... :wink:

(With apologies to Scatterbrain)

“Here's my story, sad but true
About a king that I once knew.
He broke my heart, I became doolally,
It all started when he called me Dolly...”
"Sorry, my tongue got in the way of my eye-tooth, and I couldn't see what I was saying..."

Oo. Ouch. That hurt. I knew letting you and Sonia get together was a really bad idea....

(I wasn't thinking of looking in my upload bulging folder, but rather in the nice separate project folders I have on my computer.)

Thanks (I think), Todd

well no actually, I think that was a misunderstanding. If you check out in detail, the number for the footnote always is in FRONT of the text that is being explained at the bottom of the page. So the note "a tragical exclamation" references the last part of the line "Oh ! Ye gods !" which is a common device to convey tragical outbursts (this was all a parody of course). The same goes for "Be still my soul" which is "a tragical phrase much in use". I think the long dash in the beginning is not meant to mean anything, it's only to fill up the line, because the line above is only a half-verse and the Queen is finishing that verse with another half-line. This is a common way of doing it it poetry, so the rythm and length of the verse stays the same.

That's why I decided not to say anything, because I really think it was meant that way. But maybe you can convince me otherwise...

Sonia
