Brilliant acting, Jenn!

Felicity, Chapters 4, 5, & 6 are PL OK.

Thanks,
TJ

Thanks, Diego!

Your volume now falls into the desired range (although it does seem to get louder at the beginning and end of the sentences and softer in the middle, but I can adjust that for such a short part -- just keep your eye out for this when you record future parts.

I'd like to ask for one more small correction please. In your first sentence, I hear "one" instead of "runt."

"I was a regular runt before I begun,"

That's important for the content of the story because you are selling Bev a concoction, which is supposed to help make him grow bigger.

(Interesting to note that I could hear the "r" and "t" in "runt" in the first recording, but they seem to have faded away in this one... :hmm: ).

Can I get you to rerecord that first part of the first sentence, please?
Thanks!
TJ

Peter, Chapter 11:
Right at the beginning of your file, could you please say: "Penance?" (It's on the first half of page 2 with the other kids).

Peter, Chapter 15:
Could I ask you to please read right at the beginning of your file:
"it would be fine, only kind of inconvenient, wearing a crown all the time." (It's at the end of the third paragraph on page 1. It wasn't color coded for Peter, but I think it'd be more fun if it's in Peter's voice).

Peter, Chapter 16:
At about 0:56, could I please get you to shriek with the other children? (I added it to the text on the middle of page 6).


Peter, Chapter 14, is PL OK.

Thanks, Julian! Chapter 16 is hilarious! Peter is such a great character and you do him so well.

Here are Chapters 4-9 of Felicity:
Felicity, Chapter 7:

00:01 The line is: "Hard words break no bones," (I hear "Hard work breaks no bones," )

Chapter 8:

1:31 "Well, it was awful sad," said Felicity, wiping her eyes... (You read it as it was written in my script, p. 9, "awful said." The Gutenberg text that I used for the script had a typo in it, but I thought as I listened to your part that it should be "sad" and not "said", so I checked the scanned archive text, and, yes, it should be "sad". Sorry about that).

Chapter 9:

Can you add this partial sentence at about 00:12 please: "as clever as the Story Girl" -- it's in the last paragraph of page 4 when everyone is saying what they had hoped for from Billy's magic seed.

Thanks! Wonderful portrayal of Felicity, Jenn!

Ya, I want the kids to talk as much as possible -- even when it is a paraphrase that Bev narrates later, like this one. I think (hope) it will be more lively that way. :D (Keep your eye out for green text, there's more of this to come... :wink: ).
