I will be officially translating Heavy Sweetness Ash-like Frost. It's quite a heavy undertaking and I'm both nervous and excited. Thanks to Peanuts, I've gotten Xiaoyuer's permission to continue where her translations left off. I have not read through her translations yet, but from the document Peanuts sent me, it looks epic. Xiaoyuer even has footnotes! I have to confess that I don't think I will be that detailed. I will try my best to convey the spirit and understanding of the book and try to highlight certain concepts rooted in ancient Chinese mythology, but I'm no expert myself and I'm going to go for ease of reading more than accuracy.
Xiaoyuer will hopefully be fixing her tumblr soon! I won't be posting her translations here, because I think respect should be due to all her hard work previously. I will provide a detailed summary of the prologue and first 7 chapters and my first translated chapter will be Chapter 8.
I will be finishing up the summary and review for 3L3W, 10 Peach Blossoms and finishing up Part 3 of Chapter 18 of the Pillow Book soon as well. December and early January will be transitional periods with a lot of moving, work and trips - and I will likely be sent to Hong Kong for 2 months. But, after that, I hope to settle in a good regular pace. I will aim to get a translated chapter out a week, or at least half a chapter, because I like to read things at a regular pace (haha). So, look forward to it. Look forward to the awesomeness of Phoenix Fire Deity vs Dragon Night Deity <3 (P.S. When I first read it I was a total Phoenix Fire Deity, but after it ended and I started to reflect, I might have converted to a Dragon Night Deity shipper!)
