Title: Grace Does Stupid Stuff in Her Spare Time, AKA Grace's Fanfiction Audiobooks
Post by: Amazing_Grace on June 02, 2015, 10:39:33 pm
Exactly What It Says on the Tin.

So I mentioned this in General Thoughts, and at least one person showed a smidgeon of interest. Even if it's just for that one person's sake, I will now be using this thread to post my really bad fanfiction audiobooks.

For the purpose of this first episode, I wrote up a script because sometimes I screw up my words or talk too fast or mutter so much you can't understand what I'm saying. If you guys think doing so is unnecessary or you have a different format in mind to make it easier for me to do while still helping you understand what's going on, let me know!

Since I've only finished the script for the first episode (and it literally took me all day), I'll post Episode One for now and let you guys leave thoughts of this mess.

A quick bit of background, copy-pasted from General Thoughts:

The universe was actually invented by a friend of mine and I who have this long-running roleplay that started over 5 years ago. It's now titled "Shadows Vs. Veros", but back then it was "Shadows Vs. Ryos", because my friend literally just picked a random Japanese word that sounded cool and stuck it there. And all of us pronounced it wrong too, as part of the fun.
It's basically about two warring sides. The Shadows are quite literally aliens that came from earth and now possess people to turn them into other Shadows. Most Shadows have powers that are then passed on to whoever they possess. The Veros are the good guys. They also have powers, though other people without powers often ally with the Veros to support them in other ways.
That's all the essential information to have a background to the (really bad) fanfictions, but it's a lot more complex than that in its entirety.
I wrote these using a lot of characters that didn't belong to me, with permission from their owners. A lot of MY characters didn't exist back then, so those guys voiced everyone who didn't belong to me.

A bit of extra background information to help some of these jokes make sense:
The character Manky was originally one of Heather's three brothers. However, he was replaced very soon after these were finished being written by Notar, who's a total nerd and the love interest of Makoto. :U
((who I totally didn't steal from iDOLM@STER btw hahahaha))
((OK so I actually did at first but then she became so wildly morphed out of character that she has a new last name now and is practically my own character))
((I'm violating so many copyrights but it's not like these will ever go anywhere beyond here so))


Appaele is totally obsessed with Rolf and fluctuates between being a rabid fangirl and being a total tsundere. She brings it up once or twice here.
Pretty sure everything else is explained there.

Except maybe Kaiden being the son of Melissa and Aiden, both of which are now officially dead in canon but I love them so much I keep bringing them back to life.

Anyhow.

Without further ado, here: part one of this six-part Shadows Vs. "Ryos" fanfiction I wrote back when I was like ten.
http://www.mediafire.com/listen/if20vdu8y0w67kc/Six-Part_SVR_Book_1.mp3

And the script:
http://www.mediafire.com/download/28m77s2d89d289y/SVR_Audiobook_Script_1.odt
P.S.
Regarding the script:
I copy-pasted the story itself into everyone's dialogue. If something looks oddly written or is spelled strangely, it's because I was ten and I only fixed stuff if the character themselves fixed it.
All characters are voiced by me except Kelly, who is my sister Kelly and is not a character at all.
now praise me as the greatest voice actor in history

...Haha scr3w the rules I'll double post if I want

I actually managed to finish the script for the second book. It went smoother this time since the second part is significantly shorter and I didn't have to introduce everyone or try to figure out how to pronounce names.

Thus:
http://www.mediafire.com/listen/m10k6vfugr8xr6i/Six-Part_SVR_Book_2.mp3

And le script. It comes in handy here especially because I mumble or use run-on sentences a lot. Punctuation was eliminated from the original monologue at the start to illustrate how quickly Lei delivers it:
http://www.mediafire.com/download/c5lgyu8up8y5gu2/SVR_Audiobook_Script_2.odt

:U A bit of extra background required for this one:

"But in real life, I want to kill you~".--Lust is a member of the Seven Deadly Sins. They're the main group of Shadows trying to kill everyone.
"BLUE LOOKED BEAUTIFUL." "I know~".--I'm referencing the prologue song of Into the Woods. Cinderella sings to her step-sister, "You look beautiful!" The step-sister replies, "I know."
Braeden--Take the most stereotypical delinquent you can think of and give him a backwoods accent. That's this guy. Changed a couple of words to reflect his speech patterns.
Aoi/Rolf/Appaele--The biggest love triangle in the franchise. As mentioned last time, Lei is TOTALLY OBSESSED with Rolf, who hates everyone and is a jerky emo. Aoi is also crushing on the guy, but she's slightly more subtle and sarcastic about it and actually kinda hates him at the same time.
Nin--Oh yeah he's here. :U He's one of the guys voicing himself, but he doesn't actually show up until Episode Four SPOILER ALERT~

I legit don't even care if I'm doing all this work for nothing I love these things and I hope they make you guys laugh as much as they made me laugh. Because as you can hear, I laughed at this A LOT.

I finished the first book! Here are some thoughts I had while listening:

Like altuixde said, maybe you should do some more explanations about characters, and besides your original character, also explain one or two things about iM@S girls in your story. (If they're there, of course.)

And since this is basically a fan fiction about warfare, I think you can refer to this post: Click Me. (http://greemas.doorblog.jp/archives/44001130.html)

Not exactly the same stuff to your concept, and by referring this you may need to reset your plot, but you can take a look on their roles. I do think sniper fits Chihaya perfectly ;)

I finished the first book! Here are some thoughts I had while listening:
  • Before today (actually, yesterday) I had never heard of Neopets. So everyone in the story that the characters are reading is a Neopet, not a human?

Correct. Back when this roleplay started, everyone was a Neopet. In fact, they stayed that way up through 2014. XD My friend Amy and I finally realized we were practically adults now and everything happening to these poor saps really made them seem too human so now they're all humans. So the characters reading are human, the ones in the story are all Neopets. It makes everything really awkward, but oh well. :U

  • Some of your voices (notably Jezebel, Melissa and Appaele) sound completely different from your normal speaking voice, and I think that's a great talent!
  • Did you rehearse before you made the recording? You didn't make many mistakes. 8)

Why, thank you. I'm quite proud of myself.

...HAHAHAHAHAHA NO.
I made so many mistakes hahaha
I stumbled over my words a lot in book two and kept saying the wrong words and like asdfghjkl but thank you XD

  • Could you provide a list of characters and roles with a short description of each? Also, maybe you should write the roles that the characters are playing (for the characters whose roles are not their own name) next to their lines too, to make it a little easier to follow.

Sure! I'll definitely keep that in mind for the third script, and I can change it in the second and first too.
I'll write up a short description at the end of this post for you. ^^

  • Overall, I was expecting the story to be a lot darker and bleak (because of people getting possessed by the Shadows), but I'm glad that it's pleasant instead.
  • This last thought is just a trifle, but I think the recording would sound better if you used a pop filter (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pop_filter). Something to prevent fast moving air from buffeting the microphone. Yes, I'm a tech nerd ^^;

Haha trust me we have enough darkness and evil and death and terrible stuff happening back in the current time roleplay to satisfy the most hardcore of action fans
A big part of this is A) I planned on submitting this to "The Neopian Times", which is like an online newspaper run by the people at Neopets. They're REALLY strict about content, and anything even RESEMBLING romance or intense fighting often gets you in trouble. That's why my friend and I do this over Gmail now.
So yeah, the dark parts couldn't actually happen XD

...That's a fantastic idea, and it'd make everything sound a lot better.
...Too bad I already recorded all of these using my iPad hahaha. *shot*

Like altuixde said, maybe you should do some more explanations about characters, and besides your original character, also explain one or two things about iM@S girls in your story. (If they're there, of course.)

I'll definitely include said list at the end of this for you guys. :3

There actually aren't any iM@S girls in this one (I didn't steal Makoto what are you talking about hahaha *shifty eyes*), but I am thinking that after Batch 2 (the Bakugan fanfictions that are even worse), I might do an iM@S one. It'll probably be really long, and I think I'll turn it into shorter parts myself, but I'll try to find one that I think would amuse people.

I would, but as mentioned, A) I already wrote these like six years ago ^^" and B ), all of them are already recorded. ^^"

~~*~~

Whee I promised this so here it is. A quick description of each character, along with a reminder of what role they play. IN ORDER OF APPEARANCE~

I get carried away when I talk about these guys so there are probably a lot of irrelevant details. ...I'm sorry.

Melissa: Young mother of Kaiden and Braeden, and Aiden's wife (until he died lol). Melissa often plays the Straight Man to her troll husband and equally troll sons, but after Aiden's death, a piece of her sort of adapted to his personality so she could feel like he was still with her, and she became almost as much of a troll. She's still relatively complacent, easygoing, and logical, but sometimes becomes very teasing and eggs everybody on. Melissa is a Shadow, but chooses not to use her powers.
In the fanfiction, she plays Clarocielo.

Aiden: Melissa's first husband and Kaiden's father. He died before the whole thing ever even STARTED when Kaiden was five years old. Ironically, Kaiden STILL grew up to be pretty much exactly like him. Aiden's probably the biggest troll you could ever meet and a proud Shadow. He loves seeing people get angry (especially his wife) and is always saying things that are either really perverted or really obnoxious just to get her to yell at him. Still, he's very protective and loving of his family, which is what got him killed in the first place. I love him so much that I keep bringing him back to life even though he's been dead for sixteen years in canon BUT WHATEVER I'M MAGICAL~.
In the fanfiction, he plays Cerus and Leo.

Kaiden: Melissa and Aiden's son, twenty-one years old, who grew up to be practically EXACTLY like his father. Kaiden's just as big of a troll, though also slightly more of a gentleman, which he picked up from Melissa. He's totally obsessed with Aoi and grew up with her, even though she just sees him as an obnoxious big brother. Kaiden can be rather flirtatious and perverted sometimes, and is also one of the biggest sadists in the series. After his father's death, he became determined to destroy every Veros ever because they're the ones that killed him. Ironically, he fell in love with a Veros and now travels with the Veros to help them save the world because he can't bring himself to hurt Aoi's friends. So much for revenge, buddy.
In the fanfiction, he plays Zopheus, Xigban, and Ned.

Makoto: I totally didn't steal her from iDOLM@STER hahaha
...Yeah, I stole her.
At first, I tried to get canon characters involved in this, but then I realized I was breaching copyrights and honestly by that time I had gotten her so far out-of-character that she's like literally my own character by now.
So, like her canon counterpart, Makoto's a bit of a tomboy. She's a lot more boy-crazy and ditsy than Canon Makoto, though. Also I gave her a new last name so COPYRIGHTS ARE SAFE~.
Sorry I should go to prison for this
In all seriousness, this Makoto is childhood friends with Nin and Aoi. Also Uso. She inherited Ironia's powers of defense after Ironia's soul was sealed in her body. ...It makes sense in context.
In the fanfiction, she plays Sorren.

Envy: A member of the Seven Deadly Sins, elite Shadows that essentially rule the other Shadows while the Shadow Lord is sealed up, along with Lust (and Gluttony, Pride, Sloth, and Greed. Wrath is actually a good guy now.) While extremely strong and actually very competent, Envy completely lacks common sense and thus comes across was ditsy and pretty stupid. He gets along surprisingly well with some of the Veros, even if Nin and Rolf totally despise him because they despise all the Shadows. Envy has the power of shape-shifting, and as part of that, he can alter his voice perfectly to match anyone he needs to disguise himself as.
I seriously had no idea FullMetal Alchemist Envy was a thing when this guy came into existence I promise.
In the fanfiction, he plays Magwitche, Prince....and Fluffy. :U

Marsha: Aiden's murderer. HAHAHA.
But seriously she really did kill the guy
A member of the First Veros with Eliza and Ironia (and five others who aren't here), Marsha was the original water Veros. She's a party girl, and in her youth (heck, even in her old age because these guys are technically like 7,000 years old), she could often be found drinking or smoking or chilling with a bunch of dudes. VERY sarcastic and actually very foul-mouthed, but I don't curse out loud so she can't either hahaha.
Marsha is fiercely dedicated to the Veros, but ironically only feels any sort of kinship to the First Veros. Because of that, she can get sadistic when faced with a Shadow, and doesn't care who she needs to kill to achieve her goals. I guess you could call her Chaotic Good? She's practically Chaotic Evil.
In the fanfiction, she plays Margueriita.

Ironia: A member of the First Veros with Marsha and Eliza. She's the only one of the group that was actually killed in the big war. Ironically, her powers are defense. Gosh, there's a lot of irony in this.
When she died, Eliza, the psychic of the group, trapped her soul and sealed it in Makoto's body--who, at the time, had no powers but really wanted some.
Ironia is upbeat and easygoing, and is rather laidback in comparison to how crazy everyone else is.
In the fanfiction, she plays Heather and Tzigana (tiz-ih-GAH-nuh).

Brenda: A completely normal daughter of a Catholic priest. Brenda is rather religious, and only gets wrapped up in the group when murders take place in her town and one of the characters, Leo, goes to investigate. She's extremely shy and kind of socially awkward, hence all her squeaking. Brenda's a good-natured girl, though. She has yet to actually join the big group.
In the fanfiction, she plays Rockin and Sparkle.

Blaze: Appaele's childhood best friend, a bit of a moron, and Disco's brother. Also Sparkle's brother but she practically fizzled out of existence so she's irrelevant. Blaze was one of the first Shadows created for the series. While stupid, he can pull through when provoked and proves strong when really challenged. He loyally serves the Shadow Lord despite being a product of possession HIMSELF.
In the fanfiction, he plays himself and Manky.

Lust: A member of the Seven Deadly Sins with Envy (and the rest but they're irrelevant). A Card-Carrying Villain if there's ever been one Lust loves being a Shadow and is among the smartest of the Seven (along with Greed, the Mad Scientist of the group). She often complains about being surrounded by morons, and enjoys flaunting her body because she's Lust and it's literally what she does. She holds personal grudges against Appaele, Makoto, Aoi, and Wrath, the latter of whom is her love interest who she hates because he betrayed the group and left her.
In the fanfiction, she plays Blue and narrates.

Jezebel: A member of Melissa's island of evil and, quite literally, "friends with benefits" with Braeden. She only briefly met the group, but had known Braeden for years. She was part of the group that was artificially influenced to think darkly, and thus was swayed to become a bit of a sl*t. Still, Jezebel is actually very good-natured and kind, and though flirtatious, she's cheerful and a nice moodmaker.
In the fanfiction, she plays Queen.

Uso: Childhood friend of Makoto's and a simple knight who joined the group on a crusade to help them destroy the Shadow Lord.VERY formal and polite, usually sticking to formal language and calling everyone he knows “Milord” or “Milady”. He's actually only around 22 or 23, but has the deepest male voice on my end of the franchise.
In the fanfiction, he plays Zunzan, assorted one-line extra characters, and narrates.

Aoi: Self-proclaimed greatest Veros ever. Childhood friend of Nin, Makoto, and Kaiden. Kaiden's totally in love with her, but she herself is in love with Rolf and just sees Kaiden as an obnoxious big brother. Still VERY close to Kai, though, and is always there to calm him down when he gets worked up. While initially cruel, arrogant, snappy, and VERY sarcastic, Aoi experienced a life-changing event in her reality (alternate realities the group is sent to to teach them a lesson/help them grow/torture them) that caused her to gain a whole new outlook on her dark and troubled past. While still sarcastic and resistant to looking stupid, she's significantly more cheerful and now actually SMILES and tries to help people.
Unfortunately, we caught her at a bad time here. :U
In the fanfiction, she plays May.

Jay: Appaele's little brother, and the only light Veros in the group. Jay is rather immature, and is very childish, innocent, and cheerful. Though he can quickly become mature and comfort people when need be, Jay prefers to hide from the world in a mask of happiness. He's really deep. :U
Has never really experienced anything life-changing, even though he's surrounded by people that keep dying. He's a surprisingly strong kid. :U
In the fanfiction, he plays himself.

Appaele: Snotty, a bit arrogant, and spunky, Appaele was one of the first members of the group. She's madly in love with Rolf and behaves in a VERY tsundere manner around him. She holds a grudge against Aoi, her love rival, partially because she knows Aoi is a threat, and partially just because Appaele is top-heavy and has practically no hips, and Aoi's hips are HUGE even if she's really bottom-heavy and has practically no bust. :U Appaele can often be a Leeroy Jenkins and rushes into battle without thinking a lot, but deep down, she's rather protective of her loved ones and is very loyal. She keeps the place light with all her antics.
In the fanfiction, she plays herself.

Disco: Quiet and unassuming, Disco is Blaze's sister and a Shadow by possession. Though she longs to be a Veros, she feels responsible to Blaze and, despite being the younger sibling, takes care of him and makes sure he doesn't do anything TOO stupid. She is also a childhood friend of Appaele and Jay's, and is very friendly with the Veros and her fellow Shadows.
In the fanfiction, she plays herself.

Nin: Childhood friend of Makoto and Aoi's, and Tzigana's boyfriend. :U Nin is a gentleman, but is also FIERCELY protective of all his friends. He's stubborn, though a careful planner. Nin gets stressed very easily, though usually deals very calmly with the situation. Unless it involves Shadows, who he hates. He especially despises Kaiden, not only because Kaiden is constantly making advances on Aoi that trigger Nin's protective Big Brother side, but also because in Nin's own reality, Kaiden was the main antagonist and literally killed everyone Nin loved. So yeah, he's got a grudge against the guy :U
He's one of the only people here who's actually somewhat willing to go along with these crazy stunts. He can get a bit embarrassed when confronted about his relationship with Tzigana, but he knows he likes her and he knows she likes him, so he just deals with it.
Refers to me as “Mom” whenever we do fourth-wall stuff with him because everyone is aware of the fourth wall here and he knows he's a figment of my imagination. His character was based loosely around Shun from Bakugan. I didn't actually steal him either XDD
In the fanfiction, he plays himself.

Braeden: Son of Melissa and her second husband, and Kaiden's half-brother. The most stereotypical delinquent out there; he wears a sarashi, has a backwoods accent, fights using a RUSTY CROWBAR, and is overall Yankee: The Character.
Because of time-travel shenanigans that are complicated to explain, Braeden is only three years younger than Kaiden. However, his mom only cared about having a son to replace Kaiden, and when Braeden doesn't live up to her expectations, she begins to neglect him (hence the “That's the nicest you've EVER spoken to me” line in Book Three :UU). Thus, Braeden becomes self-sufficient, and learns to get his approval by going out drinking, partying, and sleeping around with a crazy amount of women that by this time probably have his children, let's be honest with ourselves here.
Basically, the guy's a huge mess.
Braeden can be just as much of a troll as the rest of his family (except replace his dad with Aiden), but can also play the Straight Man when the need arises.
...Just don't leave him alone in any rooms with women.
In the fanfiction, he plays Rolf (perhaps ironically because Rolf tries to divert everyone's attention and this guy tries to get everyone's attention).

Eliza: A member of the First Veros with Marsha and Ironia. Loofy, ditsy, and very giggly, Eliza is one of the moodmakers of the group. She's kind and goodnatured, and though limited in what her powers can do, her affinity for the Veros keeps her following the group around and assisting them with teleportation needs.
She can occasionally be a bit of a prankster or will say things that sound dark or mean for Eliza.
In the fanfiction, she plays herself.

I can make a list for people who don't belong to me also (AKA the roles everyone is playing), if you want that too :UU

EDIT:
...I forgot Eliza. :U Added her. :U

Hmm, interesting setup for these kiddos. But since you've done the whole story for six years, I wouldn't mind if there aren't any iM@S girls.

Writing stories isn't that easy, I'm also thinking about my own fan story, which is about aerial combat of a fictional war, but it just goes nowhere...

Trust me, I know. XDD I've been writing nearly non-stop for a VERY long time. Writer's block is your worst nightmare.

I'll definitely try to find something iM@S-related I can do one day. :P

In the meantime, re-uploaded the scripts for parts 1 and 2. They now include the name of the role the character is playing after their name. If there is no role, but the character does not play themselves, that character is only speaking as themselves.

This applies to the next two scripts also. Thanks to altuixde for the advice!

Now presenting Part 3:
http://www.mediafire.com/listen/f4sg38t1fbtxay8/Six-Part_SVR_Book_3.mp3

...and its script:
http://www.mediafire.com/download/vbdqhdd44na8ew1/SVR_Audiobook_Script_3.odt

Also, here's Part 4:
http://www.mediafire.com/listen/62fydshn1h2y745/Six-Part_SVR_Book_4.mp3

...and its script:
http://www.mediafire.com/view/p3tc719bw9rhkd5/SVR_Audiobook_Script_4.doc

Is color-coding who's speaking helping? That way you can glance at the color of the text to get a feel for who's talking now. Or is it just kind of distracting to you guys?

Things To Explain For Part 3:
"That's the nicest you've EVER spoken to me!"--Melissa doesn't talk to her son very often.
Slang word for O.T.N.--Basically O.T.N is the place where the sun don't shine.
"Rockin Wocky, ooh ooh OOH OOH~"--If you don't get that reference shame on you. "Rockin' Robin" is a very popular song from back in the day. :U
"Interjections, show excitement, or emotion..."--A Schoolhouse Rock song reference.
My Neck Still Hurts--And so does my back everything hurts ;-;
"Breathing in the sweet scent of lavenders...coming from Rolf's expensive female perfume."--Everyone's always making fun of Rolf for being like a woman in the way he holds in his feelings and then acts really emotional all the time and everyone is like "omg Rolf stahp". Now Melissa's getting in on the fun too. :U
"I can't talk as Envy anymore."--I literally did four of these in one day and his voice is so raspy and it hurts my throat so badly
Various Aiden Jokes--Aiden's a troll. If him saying something will make you mad, he's going to say it.

Things To Explain For Part 4:
Miku-tan--She really is amazing go look her up I've had her music playing this whole time
Blaze's "Sexy Time" Jokes--Heck all the sex jokes--I was ten when I wrote these and looking back I see it's LITTERED with innuendos and things that can be misinterpreted and that scene where Nin shows up for the first time is practically a G-rated rape scene and I just realized it help
Nin Not Being Able to Talk--I can't talk and he ended up getting the brunt of it and I'm not sure why.
"...Girly feelings."--Remember everyone making fun of Rolf for being girly? Yeah, they mention his girly feelings all the time. Aoi did it during her impersonation of him too. :U
Nin's Full Name--Asians don't have middle names stupid ten-year-old Grace what were you doing. I think he has two first names instead.
"She always calls you Nancy."--Nin looks a bit like a girl so Tzigana started calling him Nancy to make fun of him. It stuck. Forever.
Aiden's Whole Freaking First Scene--This guy will never say what's written.
Kelly--She keeps showing up while I do these and by the time she does I'm too far in to stop so she ends up contributing.
"...Pick that up and feed it to me. :U"--I brought food downstairs. Kelly was eating some and she dropped it, so I told her to feed me so I could focus on continuing to read. :U
"He's been sacked."--In Monty Python and the Holy Grail, the entire credits crew is "sacked".
"Your mother was a hamster, and your father smelt of elderberries."--The classic French taunt from said Monty Python and the Holy Grail.

Things To Explain In General:

Sometimes Life Happens--Sometimes life happens (my mom yells at me, I lose my place, I forget how to speak English, Kelly comes downstairs, the phone rings). I did all of these in one take, so whenever life happens...life happens. .-."
Leaped Vs. Leapt--I think they're both technically correct, actually, but "leaped" sounds really ugly and I hate saying it.
"Where am I?"-- I used a paper copy of these while I was recording, so sometimes I got lost.

Sorry for disappearing for a few days! Anyway, I finished part 2. Even with the character descriptions I'm still pretty lost, but that's my fault, I'm just slow. When I read a book, it isn't until several chapters in that I actually know what's going on. About the color-coding: it does help!

These things are like, 5 hours of total content, I don't expect anyone to watch them all at once XD
Honestly, as long as you guys laugh at this as much as I did I'll be happy. :P

Would some sort of plot summary help? :U I'm sure interrupting myself all the time doesn't help. :P

In any case, the best episode is done:
http://www.mediafire.com/listen/616vue6139vfu6l/Six-Part_SVR_Book_5.mp3

The end is like a bad shounen anime and it's beautiful.
Script so you can follow along with all the craziness:
http://www.mediafire.com/download/yafj91dsxbbdzpq/SVR_Audiobook_Script_5.odt

The ending gets me every time
I don't know if it'll be the same for you but like
Every time

Things I Need To Explain:
"I'm SO DIZZY"--You try screaming for like half an hour straight in like twelve different voices, the vast majority of which are men's voices while you are female haha.
"Thank Fyora."--In the Neoverse, Fyora's basically God.
All the innuendos--There are a lot of them in this one.


I should probably apologize to people because sometimes rape jokes happen and they really aren't jokes because rape is not even okay
But honestly my characters have minds of their own.
And I look at these things now and realize that there are so many like really bad innuendos
But still, sorry for that. I don't mean to offend anyone.

Ah yes! A plot summary would help! When I have a plot summary before watching a movie, for instance, I can follow the movie more easily. Actually it depends on the movie; lots of movies are simple enough for me to follow without effort. A complete summary would be detrimental, though, because that would give away the end. How about something like those plot summaries that they put on a movie's page in the iTunes store that describes what the movie is about and entices people to watch it?

Even though I don't always understand what's going on, these are fun to listen to because you sound like you had fun recording them! Some of the lines of the part 2 script you read so fast... how did you do that? :o

Plot summary it is.

  Heather Rubyfire is a young Ryo-in-training. Since her brothers mysteriously vanished, Heather has been on a quest to get them back. But this quest is sidetracked when Heather and her new friends, including spunky ice Ryo Appaele, free-spirited Magwitche, and childlike Jay, come across a couple of vicious Shadows in Heather's cafe.
The fight is on to track down and stop the Shadows before their leader, the brutal Shadow Lord, can turn all of Neopia into a world of destruction and flames. Picking up new friends along the way, Heather journeys around the world to destroy the Shadows and restore balance once and for all--and all the while. Heather continues to search for her missing brothers.

Derp I'm terrible at these but haha I tried


As for the fast lines...I think it's because my voice moves really quickly naturally. Also, I'm CONSTANTLY practicing Japanese songs (particularly Vocaloid) that are EXTREMELY quick. My lips have learned to move pretty fast XD

Vocaloid songs are like... alien songs to me :o My fellow fags keep telling me those are real songstress singing their songs, but I just don't believe it.

It's less that...real people actually sing the songs, and more that...they just provide the voices.
Don't quote me on this, but I believe they have the voice actress sing various syllables and then you can manipulate their voices to sing whatever pitch you want? I really haven't the slightest idea how that works XD

It's why a lot of people prefer Utaites. They get to listen to a real person sing the Vocaloid songs they love.
I want to be one one day so badly ;-;

It'd be crazy if people can sing that fast :o But yeah, there are tricks to manipulate human voices like you've mentioned.

I'll listen to all your audio books at once next Tuesday, since I can't really focus after work... don't wanna miss any details :)

They can do it, trust me. I did it sometimes with all my self-challenges at the Karaoke thread XD

Thanks. ^^ I'm just glad even two of you are interested. I just wanna help make people laugh :U

Sorry Grace, but I just realized I don't even have time to finish half of your drama CD's :( But I've listened to part one, those interactions between characters are quite funny. XD I really like how you perform this plot!

(I laughed a lot at Heather's part by the way XD )

Please, don't feel the need to apologize. :D It's fun for me, so if it's fun for you guys, awesome. I'm not expecting people to feel any sort of obligation to follow along. :P

Thank you for the interest, though, and also for the compliments. I love working on these things.

Would get started on Batch Two, but I seem to have misplaced my paper copy with the cast list, and also my throat feels like death today. U: But hey, one day. In the meantime, I'll finish up the script for part 6 and let those with time and interest wander in whenever and laugh with me. U:

Haha, I thought you did quite well :) Such talent deserve some attention, right? We all insist to do what we love, that way, people will eventually start to admire our works.

Anyway, make sure you take good care of your voice ;) I'm looking forward to your next story!

My voice is beginning to feel better, so all I need now is my iPad back and the lost paper copy with my cast list.

I actually "need" a better microphone but honestly that's never going to happen at this rate I am too broke

I think iPad is fine for recording :) As long as we can hear you loud and clear, it's not a problem! But lost papers will be a problem, tho. You didn't make any backup on a PC or something? :o

I have the thing on my computer, but the problem with losing the papers is that I lost my cast list with them. ^^"

I've finally listened to all five parts... twice! Part 5 was pretty dramatic! Nin reminded me of Galuf from Final Fantasy V. One question, though: how come Heather lost her free will when she was possessed but Disco and Zopheus still have theirs?

Post by: Amazing_Grace on September 05, 2015, 03:03:12 am
Thanks for listening. xD I'm glad if you were entertained. I literally lost my voice recorded part five XD But it was worth it if people laugh as much as I did while recording it.

As for why Heather lost her free will when she was possessed...I honestly have no idea. XDD All the plot holes are part of what makes me so ashamed of this.
I think it's because Heather already had a demon living inside her that's never actually explained or mentioned but makes her angry. That, combined with possession, makes her more susceptible to evil than the others.
Seriously though I didn't think this through ;-;

Ah, you're welcome! The episodes definitely were entertaining. Sorry I took so long to finish these five; I was kinda busy and I'm easily distracted, so that's something for me to be ashamed of. I think I can offer a tip on planning out stories, though: always write the ending first, or at least early on. That way, while you're writing, you can make all the strands of the story come together because you already know the ending and the whole thing will make sense. But I'm kinda jumping the gun with that suggestion because you haven't uploaded the end yet. :) Also, even in professional works, there are sometimes plot holes. I think plot holes are sometimes necessary in order to tell the story that the author wants to tell.

Post by: Amazing_Grace on September 15, 2015, 03:49:31 am
That's totally okay. :)
I'm about midway through the third part. Hopefully it'll tie up at least a couple of loose ends, but considering I was eleven, probably not. XD

My writing has increased nine-thousand-fold since these days, so maybe one day, I can show you guys something iM@S-themed that's actually good. :P You give good advice, so thank you! I usually at least know a chapter or two ahead of whatever I'm writing, but sometimes I just totally lose it. I'll make sure to be planning the ending as I move ahead with more recent stuff.

You're welcome!

By the way, I drew something recently and I think I'll be able to post it in like an hour. Could you check my art thread around then? I'd love to hear what you think about it.
Title: Re: Grace Does Stupid Stuff in Her Spare Time, AKA Grace's Fanfiction Audiobooks
Post by: Amazing_Grace on September 15, 2015, 04:35:17 am
Ooh, yeah, totally! I love your art style.

I'm currently working on a MASSIVE project to draw literally every single important character from the same series these fan fictions are about. I'm doing it by group and putting each group on their own page, inking and coloring, and drawing it so that when placed next to each other in order, the groups look like they're interacting with each other.




It is literally going to be my Magnum Opus.
I'd love to post it here when it's done so you guys can see it. :D

Guys, I remembered this place existed!

Finally finished the last script! i know I chose to do this but it's actually a LOT more work than I thought it would be. If you guys are laughing, the hard work was worth it.

Here's the last part:
http://www.mediafire.com/listen/zzp6urhtn13i9oj/Six-Part_SVR_Book_6.mp3

And the script that was really hard to finish I forgot how hard it was to do these:
http://www.mediafire.com/download/u7211cqipc8j6zh/SVR_Audiobook_Script_6.odt

Some things to note:

Braeden--He's a massive lech and I am sorry for him.
"That's like, three inches of his head just dragged on the ground."--it actually isn't, past Grace. But yeah, Rolf is really short.
Kelly--Writing this script and trying to translate her random noises made me realize how obnoxious she was being and I am sorry. I love her, though. <3
Aoi and Appaele's figure fights--Because Lei is top-heavy and Ao is bottom-heavy and they have opposite figures, they fight over that CONSTANTLY because they're both in love with Rolf. It's actually kind of hysterical when they're at their worst.

And a few thought-provoking survey questions (that are totally optional):
Those of you who kept up with this altuixde, who was your favorite character in the story, if you had one?
Which was your favorite voice, and why?
Did you laugh at my many grammar mistakes and plot holes as much as I did?
Who do you think played their character the best?

Thanks for waiting so long altuixde! You guys are the best. <3 Hope I was able to bring a little joy to your lives with these. :D

I'll listen to this first thing tomorrow. 8)

Since my memory isn't the best, the survey would've been so much easier to answer if I had known the questions before starting book one! Ah, well at least there's still book 6 to jog my memory. ^^

I don't think I can thoroughly answer the survey questions before listening to books 1-5 again, but I will say that Appaele seemed like the main character in book 6. And I like how you showed conflict between a possessed character and the shadow possessing them. So do you have any other stories that you're going to record? I'm not so good at providing feedback, but these are fun to listen to!

That's fair. :P Like I said, I'm just glad it didn't all go to waste XDD

I'm planning on doing another batch at some point (I might use different characters, I might use the same, not totally sure yet), but I haven't had time by myself and I haven't practiced in so long that I'm getting rusty. D:
