This was a HUGE undertaking - there were over 30,000original files that I went through one by one, all of which were completely out of order and named some mess of random letters and numbers. I made it my mission to find and pull the most interesting unused conversations and pieces of dialogue from the game, taught myself audio editing basics in order to thread them together, and upload them in a Soundcloud playlist.
Every single line in a conversation is its own file, so some of the conversations are actually 8 or 9 files that I put together. It features nearly every major character; the only characters I couldn’t find extra dialogues from were Henry and Sam, and Tommy and Maria.
The vast majority of these are unused, however some are alternate takes of conversations that happen in-game, such as Ellie telling Joel about her wanting to be an astronaut, or Bill telling Joel about the caravan in the high school. Others are just compilations of funny audio clips I put together, like Joel complaining about his flashlight, or Tess calling Joel “Tex” (❤️). Either way, they all add something to the game, so I suggest giving every file a listen!
Please reblog and let me know what ya’ll think! Enjoy!! :)
P.S. This post is dedicated to @raffinit for being my closest confidante and my bestest fran, @joelmillersbeard for having the god damn cutest, most handsome little BeardBaby™️ in the world, @joelismyhero for understanding how sinfully hot Joel is and sending me pics to drool over, and to @cansofpeaches because we all love you, miss you terribly, and wish you nothing but the best!! ❤️
Stan: So. Who broke the tea pot? I’m not mad, I just wanna know.
Ben: I did. I broke it.
Stan: No. No you didn’t. Beverly?
Beverly: Don’t look at me. Look at Eddie.
Eddie: What?! I didn’t break it.
Beverly: Oh that’s weird. How’d you even know it was broken?
Eddie: Because it’s sitting right in front of us and it’s broken.
Eddie: No it’s not!
Bill: If it matters, probably not, but Richie was the last one to use it.
Richie: Liar! I don’t even drink that crap!
Bill: Oh really? Then what were you doing by the tea cart earlier?
Richie: I use the wooden stirrers to push back my cuticles. Everyone knows that Bill!
Ben: Okay let’s not fight. I broke it. Let me pay for it Minerva.
Stan: No! Who broke it?!
Beverly: Stan…Mike has been awfully quiet.
[Everyone starts arguing]
Stan: [later] I broke it. I burned my hand so I punched it. I predict 10 minutes from now they’ll be at each other’s throats with warpaint on their faces and a pig head on a stick. Good. It was getting a little too chummy around here
to anybody who thinks that Moffat is an ally to us because of Bill (a natural haired black lesbian), please remember the last time Moffat promised us a lesbian main character, she fell in love with a man and submitted to him completely (which was ridiculously unlike her character from the source material he took her from)
so yeah. fucking excuse us for being cautious about the news. fucking excuse us for feeling uncomfortable and upset by the way he misrepresents us and uses the idea of girls liking girls as some kind of quirky joke.
don’t go complaining when we call him out if he writes things in for Bill that we do not like. we have every right to. Bill is a lesbian character, and wlw (especially lesbian) fans of doctor who will ALWAYS know better for Bill, a lesbian, when it comes to her sexuality than Moffat, a biphobic misogynistic straight man, will ever know.
