Oh hey! Honeyelf from KD is Ms Banazira?! I have to go to her LJ forthwith!

As to Elijah's diction of the Wheel of Fire speech: I had an interesting chance to compare the original version to the German dubbed one. The German actor tried to speak more clearly, still with a good deal of choking, but he was definitely better decipherable than Elijah. But when I later heard Elijah's panted speech with his almost broken voice, it had the greater effect on me and touched me deeper. Well, I had read the book by then, so I knew what he was saying, but I thought his delivery very genuine.

Yep, Ms. Banazira is she (HoneyElf). I'm always finding out someone on LJ is someone whose other name I knew at K-D. I think they should wear signs around their necks. :D

I agree, Whiteling. The performance was terribly moving, and audiences responded. Me, too. I only lament the loss of such a great piece of text for many listeners who wouldn't know it from having read it (over and over).
