Thank you for bearing with us while we got this update up. The entire morphE crew is out at AlmaCon this weekend and other commitments pushed us to and through to crunchtime.

Voices by myself and Chibisilverwings, backgrounds and music as always by Tricia.

I admit I had trouble understanding some segments. Would you be able to provide a transcript?

Otherwise very good, I liked it~

TRANSCRIPT
@Eternal Cry @shylarah
Tyler: Come on. Come on, Come on... pick up. (Answering machine beep) Shit. Camden? Camden! I... I need to see you. ---god, I thought I could handle everything but shit, my hands are trembling. ---I'm coming over... if you get this call me, okay?

New York to Chicago. 13 hours and I can't remember the last time I slept.

I kept hearing things while I was driving and I think it was only sheer luck that I didn't drive right off the road. I must have stopped for gas but I don't remember any of it, it was all a total haze.

This sometimes happens when the stress of life is just too much for me or I read something that makes a bit too much sense. This time it was a stupid fantasy novel. Everything was so well written, and clear, and perfect, and spoke directly to me. All I could think about was how nothing I write would ever be able to reach in and touch a person's heart like that.

How much of my parents' money had I wasted on college up until now? How could anyone respect my work if I can't? These dark thoughts were just circling through my head endlessly. And the only thing that knocked me out of it, was noticing a young woman all alone at the edge of a bridge.


Tyler: How long have you been sitting there?

Independent: It's been two hours, you're the only one who stopped.

Tyler: It's a nice view, don't you think?

Independent: I'm not here for the view.

Tyler: Yeah... I got that. Do you wanna talk about it?

Independent: What's there to talk about?

Tyler: Is it trouble at home?

Independent: Hahaha... God, you don't even know... where were you off to anyway?

Tyler: Actually I'm traveling so that I can avoid something like this from happening to me

Independent: Really? Hehe... Well there's plenty of room up here. If you want.

Tyler: I'll pass for now, I want to see my big sister first.

Independent: Do you think she'll miss you?

Tyler: I don't know. Maybe? I'm more trouble than I'm worth most of the time.

Independent: Do you really wanna die?

Tyler: I don't know. I let everyone down enough as it is... I just don't want them blaming themselves for another one of my endless fuck-ups.

Independent: Yeah... And they probably will.

Tyler: Why bother with the endless uphill struggle? Hating yourself every single day and disappointing everyone... would it make a bit of difference if I stop showing up to life? It's not like I'm doing anything with it anyway...

Independent: So you've got nothing to do?

Tyler: Basically.

Independent: Well you could help me. My job is important. That's what they always tell me.

Tyler: Hm? What do you do?

Independent: I guess I'm... making the world a happier place. Most of the time.

Tyler: Hah? What?

Independent: Trust me, you won't disappoint your sister if you're doing something better with your life.

Tyler: ...I wish it were that simple. To just... decide to not feel like this anymore? Why should I trade one pointless life for another?

Independent: HeHEHE... Look, if it doesn't work, I promise to push you off myself.

Tyler: Hah... but maybe that's God's way, bringing us together when we both needed it. --- So should I just follow your car or wait.. where IS your car?

Independent: Oh. I don't have one... I guess you'll have to drive me home.

Independent: I don't know what I was thinking, if I wasn't here to take care of the place, my neighbor's damn leaves would kill my whole yard. He's so... untidy.

Tyler: Yeah, people suck.

Independent: Yeah. But I like you. It'll be nice to have somebody hang around for a bit.

I need to know who Chelsea is playing. Pretty sure she voiced the laugh of the woman in the opening comic, but that person had longer hair. Also, isn't that Andy's house? This seems to be before Tyler Awoke as a mage. I suspect something is going on, as she didn't have a car. Plus saying you're making the world a happier place is /never/ creepy.

Poor Tyler, though, with his writer angst. =/ *gives him a hug*

I love the light against the sky, and the water.

Sound Quality
I hope you won't take it badly if I say that it would be more enjoyable if the sound quality was better. That being said, cool segment!

@Voidwolf: no offense taken! I wish the recording came out a little cleaner too, a lot of the trouble is apparently how the file compresses in Flash so it's something we're still trying to improve on. Hopefully we can find a better way later on and we can upload again with cleaner audio track. Especially if we try a voiced segment like this again.

Sound
Don't know if you improved it in between their comments and mine, but I had no trouble with the sound.

Glad he stopped, but he is so doomed. Also, no wonder his sister was so freaked out when he called later. Not only the disappearance, but his last message was kinda worrying. If I got that and the person never arrived and just dropped off the face of the map, I'd be bloody terrified.

I was not expecting a full audio update, but this is damn interesting! Could Tyler's new buddy be mage? She kinda looks like Adrestia from the back, and given we never heard her voice before...I mean it's probably not the case, but a man can dream, dammit.

Going to ruminate on it and listen again later. BTW as I've said before, if you need more VAs I'll be glad to assist. and yes Tricia voiced the Blue Lady/Alecto the same way; it could even be the same person.

@burningtyger: Just to clarify, Chelsea is the one voicing our Independent lady :D I haven't done a voice for the official thing yet, though someone DID send Asia a voice meme ask awhile back.

If/when voices become a more regular thing, I will continue to voice Asia. Until then, please enjoy both Chelsea and Craig's hard work ^^

I'm surprised no one noticed. The colour of that lady's hair...That 'Hehehe'...She's creepy for a reason.

@Zaealix I did notice, actually. OH MY GOSH. Upon going back to the first page...DEAR GODS. I think it /is/ her. she has a nearly-shaved head, which I hadn't realized, because of her bangs. And that shadow /really/ looks like Tyler... *flail*

@shylarah: And there's that song again, Tyler's pain.... Haven't we all considered not showing up to life sometimes? *cradles his chibi in his hand, unsure who's comforting whom...* *Adds new verses to his song*

Updated file with increased audio quality. May or may not be noticeable, but wanted to ensure I did what I could to help make updates better.

Thanks for transcript, but you REALLY should subtitle those. If I wanted to watch some dubbed movie (instead of webcomic) then I would 1. watch movie 2. magically heal my ears.

That was dick move, providing no subtitles. Please don't to that again.
