It didn’t occur to me until much later (the SPHEW arc, with the Patils, to be specific) to differentiate between speaking twins by alternating them between the Left and Right channels. When I updated this chapter with Greg’s voice and did the alternation I discovered something – I have some hearing loss in my right ear. Or, more likely, I have some hearing loss in both ears (I did the whole “massively loud metal while wearing headphones” thing when I was a teenager) and it’s worse in my right ear. I found it odd that George was also quieter than Fred, even though I had their volumes set to the same level and Greg had done one line after the other without changing his setup. I thought maybe my right headphone speaker was going out, so I flipped the headset around… and now it was Fred that was quieter than George. Doh. :/ Ah well, what is true is already so, and now my model of the world is slightly less wrong.
