#41: Heavy Sweetness Ash-Like Frost & Life updates!

    Dear readers,

    Thanks so much for all your lovely emails and comments! I wanted to write a short update to state that I have been away because of serious health issues. I'm better now, but still a huge distance away I think from functioning in a way I would like.

   I really do plan on updating my fictions! Actually on that note, I realised from one of the comments that there is a mis-conception that BeautyVang on wattpad is me because she has posted my stories there. She is NOT me. I actually have an account "decembi" on wattpad but never really used it. Thanks for notifying me though - I have messaged BeautyVang and hope she takes down the stories on her own accord.

  I really do miss writing and translating though. I'm hoping that I will be able to write some entries on the upcoming Heavy Sweetness Ash-Like Frost Drama (I got the gif above from the weibo (like a chinese twitter) account of the drama). I think it's surreal that the drama has 60 episodes (I mean seriously - Heavy Sweetness is not really known for its plot right?), and hope that it will be half as enjoyable as Eternal Love - Ten Thousand Miles of Peach Blossom.

  I really really want to thank everyone for not forgetting me and for sending such heartfelt emails to me. It's amazing that I still have fans of my translations when I have not translated for so long, and I really appreciate that people seem to enjoy my translating style and commentary (haha). That was why I started translating in the first place - just so I could excitedly discuss a story I love with more people.

  Well, hopefully as I gain strength, I will start reading again and see if I can find stuff to translate. I don't want to give false hope, but I really will try to continue my fictions but it's really largely dependent on the state of my health. I promise though that you won't be left hanging. In the worst case scenario, I will write a summary of the plot so you will know what is meant to happen. I don't think it will reach such a situation though, it may take a while but I definitely can write the story.

  Sending my love to everyone! Now, I'm going to try and reply the comments...



  1. First time poster (and, actually, still fairly new to C-Novels, but falling madly in love thanks to your translations!). I found your blog when Ten Thousands Miles of Peachblossoms aired, but ended up reading your translation for Heavy Sweetness instead. It was my first Chinese novel, and after that, I was hooked.

    Glad to hear you're doing better and hope that things will only continue to get even better for you!

  2. Hey decembi, Dian Xian wrote a new epilogue for the drama adaptation. I was confused when I saw some unfamiliar scenes in the trailers until I read that it's from a new epilogue, so I tracked it down asap!

    a scene of the new epilogue (I LOVE IT!!!!) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6dIH3CRE3R8

    60eps sounds a lot, but once you get a taste of Deng Lun, I bet you won't think 60 eps is enough, hehe. He's my new obsession!!! Watch Because of You and Dad, Where Are We Going season 5. He's awesome!!! I didn't know who he was until recently, but I'm really glad he was chosen for the role of Xu Feng.

    And OMG, this clip of him singing!!♥♥♥ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CuuIWSt1124

    I don't know if he sang in Ode to Joy 2, but I still died from this, lol https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6hnPojeTjD0

  3. hello decembi ! good to hear form you. have been checking your blog here since you last posted. may the good lord protect and guide you in your process of recovery. take care ..

  4. I cannot wait for this drama to air! I don't mind the 60 episodes since I love yang zi and deng lun. I'm sure they'll have to expand on some minor characters and incorporate the epilogues but after reading the new epilogue I'm looking forward to some new material. I too found your blog through your translations of heavy sweetness ashlike frost. It's introduced me to the world of Chinese novels. Thank you for all your hard work. I wish you all the best in your recovery.

  5. Hello!

    I hope that you re recovering well and regaining your strength. Take it slow, health comes first!

    Looking forward to reading your blog as always. ^^
