    More corrections:
    1) “Scratch has chosen” not “chose”.
    2) His name is Hans Christian Andersen, not Anderson.
    He was not in “The Matrix”. :)

    Well not that we know of…

    I’ve read a lot of Olde Grimms and Hans Christian Andersen but never read the Little Match girl. I have to say that it is easilly the most morbidly depressing tale I’ve heard if only for the simple bleakness of her short and unpleasant life.

    Great build/ use of mime parts.
    That said, the longer this stays at the top of TBB, the more sad I’m getting, just before Christmas! :’S
