Episode 39: The Bedtime Story
Hi @all !
Why am I receiving this?
You received this notification or email because I quoted 'all', and you contributed to Pepper&Carrot in the past. If you don't want to receive emails or notifications about future episodes, that's totally fine: Feel free to turn on/off Notifications (on the right sidebar on Framagit). I quoted 'all' here only as an invitation, but no obligations. Thank you!
Step 1: Feedback about the Alpha version
I just posted a first version (not finished, b&w, but readable) of ep39 and I want your feedback after reading it. It was written in French, but I also made a quick DeepL English translation so everyone here can understand the 'big picture' of this very special episode:
After reading: please do not spell-fix, translate, start proposing dialogs, etc... That's not the purpose of this step 1 and we can do that later. In this step, I'm interested about:
- Your questions.
- If it was easy to read.
- Your thoughts as a reader.
- Your thoughts about what you imagine other reader will experience.
In step 2, we will work on improving the dialog in French. Then Step 3 a French to English Translation. All these steps will be annunciated here.
About this episode
(Read the episode before reading this part, thanks!)
This is a "heavy backstory" episode. I spent a lot of time writing, doing countless of draft in the hope I'll find an entertaining way to reveal the backstory while keeping the formula of a Pepper&Carrot episode (page count, humor, a start and an ending). What a challenge! This is the best I could come with.
It came at the cost of importants changes in the wiki. Sorry about that if you were familiar with its content, but I had to simplify a bit the amount of plot we had. What really changed and why is detailed on a issue here: wiki#3
It's an episode with a lot of text, a lot of backstory and I'm working on it since 6 months. It's not an episode possible for me to finish and colorize before the end of the year anyway (The amount of complex panel is ridiculous on this episode). So we have time to share feedback here during end of year holidays and in January.
I'm optimistic for a release at the end of January.
This episode was written at first for Halloween, that's why it is also a bit dark for the Xmas season. Sorry about that! A reason more to delay it to January I guess.
