    Ok, tried it, and messed up quite a bit but it's still just a test. I also had to whisper during the cussing because my 7 year old cousin is in the next room.

    I'll help with scripting, like I said in the other thread.

    I might do a voice or two as well.

    Re: Homestuck Radio Play

    I have no preference on the troll effects thing, though I am thinking amusedly of the fandomsecrets dude who flipped their shit over the concept of them, so perhaps they are not entirely crowdpleasing?

    Right now I'm trying to decide how to do the Gamzee narration. Funnier if Gamzee does his own intro, or if the Narrator just does it extremely deadpan? For reference, the text is something like:

    Whoa what the motherfuck, who's this motherfuckin' motherfucker?

    It's cool, life is like that sometimes. It's full of mysteries. You'll be doing one thing then something else hits you just like that and you roll with it. That's what you do when life hands you lemons. You sure as fuck don't make lemonade because who the fuck knows where that fuckin' shit comes from?

    It's squeezed out of miracles is where.

    So what's this motherfucker's name?

    I vote deadpan, with Gamzee shouting out random parts in the background.

    I think doing it completely deadpan would be funnier.

    I agree with the above. Deadpan narrators are always hysterical—plus allow for the narrator to portray the different trolls.

    Wait whoa there was a fandomsecret about the troll effect? I MUST SEE THIS.

    Outstanding! This format looks damn promising...

    (If anything I'd suggest even more random interjections from Gamzee in the background while the Narrator is still talking. "ALL THESE HORNS, MAN!")

    Well, you can't please everybody. Besides, does anybody actually take that thread seriously?

    Ahh, maybe I shouldn't worry about it yet, and just focus on figuring out the other stuff first.

    So who else is doing what voices?

    Re: Homestuck Radio Play

    Of the trolls we've seen, I guess I'll do Vriska? (OH GEE VON FAWN REALLY WHODATHUNK) If nobody else claims her, I can also do Nepeta—and in languages other than French or Italian, no less.

    I've also been itching to try GA and CC, but I've been waiting for their proper introductions before thinking of what they might sound like, especially because CC is as of yet unintroduced. But ignore that for now.

    OH AND SNOWMAN

    HOW COULD I FORGET

    Re: Homestuck Radio Play

    So are we doing this like the narrator is actually talking to the kids or what? Because that sure makes it a lot easier to script with the way the comic is written.

    Anyway I did Sollux's intro but feel free to do a better version.

    Re: Homestuck Radio Play

    I feel like if we can get Tynic to do spooky Aradia she should TOTALLY DO spooky Aradia. Except then this would have to be a musical.

    Also that is awesome, Turtle. I was thinking something like the beginning of the 1984 radio play, where the narrator's like "You hurry to escape the vile wind. It's difficult to be you, Winston Smith." But they're still narrating, it's just sort of in second person + 4th wall breakage.

    Just kinda seems like there'll be a lot of the characters talking to themselves if we don't have them talking to the narrator, since a lot of the time people are doing stuff without anyone else around.

    Also it's a lot easier to make this into a script when you assume the narrator is giving the kids the commands.

    I don't actually listen to the radio much. Ever.

    Re: Homestuck Radio Play

    I'd absolutely love to help write this or at the very least help edit it all together. I wouldn't mind doing voices for Gamzee, but i'm not going to do anything like call it. There's probably a few more people that would like to.
    This lets you know that my post has ended

    Re: Homestuck Radio Play

    This seems like a boatload of fun, I'd love to toss in a film noir-type inner monologue for the Spades Slick bit that went up recently.

    I guess I'll go try that right now.
