Today I have something very very special for you, something a little different. Please enjoy this dramatic reading of a romance novel excerpt. Co-written by myself and Etaski, inspired by the art of Gazukull, and voiced by four great voice actors (Aero_Buddy, BordeauxBlack, MissMoonified and FatBoiiPanda).

Usually I want people to approach my work as they see fit, but this time I am going to ask you to please view the vid (or listen to it), and stick with it to the end (almost 8 minutes). I don't want you to miss the romance.

I cannot adequately describe how much fun I had working on this project. I got to learn a few new tricks and met some great new people along the way. I hope you come to enjoy this piece as much as I do.

A longer version of the script, if people want more context to the story -> https://docs.google.com/document/d/1GUxPQSu0srNYKhHS-uGTL74Sz-gpcZ3gm5VO4c6NpFE/edit?usp=sharing

The VA script less the intro/outro, in case a VA wants to take on the script for their own purposes ->


For clarity, if you are a voice actor and want to take on this script for fun or as content fodder, have at it. I would only ask that you link back to the original post and credit those who did the original work (those listed above, and me).

Such epicness deserves more upvotes.

Truly an epic tale for the ages.

Thank you kindly. You can see a slightly different video version over on my Slushe account if you are interested. I would recommend that, as that is how it was meant to be experienced. For some reason NewGrounds doesn't allow videos that use still images, so I had to make an audio only version to post here.
