Silver Dragon Vol. 1 Chapter 22

New Chapter!
Alrighties I Present another chapter, ya know it’s only now that I’m translating this story do I realize just how much exposition is at the beginning of this story. Like some of the thing we’re talking about in this chapter don’t matter in the remote slightest until like V3/very endish of V2 if memory serves correctly. Also every time I translate I wish that I’m a faster translator because gad is the fun times so close to beginning, but alas I’m a garbage translator and can’t just output like a ch a day like some translators I’ve seen. Also the more I translate the closer I examine things which also mean my brain has started to question Mo Li’s intelligence even more, like some of the random assumptions our ummmmmm boy/girl makes is really stupid for a person that’s supposed to have the knowledge or brain power of an old assassin. Like in this chap for example right our boy starts inspecting the alchemy glasses and just because he can’t see any immediate difference after putting them on assumes they’re a scam and useless. Like bruh your ring just showed you that hey things have use conditions maybe don’t just make random assumptions. Then again maybe I’m being to judgmental cuz I guess technically no matter how you put it she’s still just a 16 year old even if she has an entire lifetimes worth of knowledge. Actually ya know what fish’s head cannon it’s actually because our baby girl jasmine’s attributes are more dominant as such Mo Li is naturally less mature, hmmmm ya know what actually now that I think about my head canon even has some canonical story logic maybe I’m just a genius yaaaaa definitely yap.

Silver Dragon Vol. 1 Chapter 20

New Chapter!
I return with another chapter, sry for the hella inconsistent uploads I kinda feel like my life is falling off a cliff sometimes in recent days so I’ve been kinda lackadaisical my translations. Anyways now that my excuse of why I’m a horrible translator is outta the way chapter 20 yay finally getting somewhere plot is technically starting kinda yaass. Weirdly enough I found this chapter really hard to translate because it felt like the author wasn’t being super clear about things at a lot of points which kinda made me feel like I was playing a guessing game of how to translate sentences. Oh ya I also played star rails new archon quest(PS. I know that’s not what they’re called but like I have to much time in genshin) so anyway the new big story quest and anyone else in pain cuz like I wanna riot to mihoyo rn like I know the game title has honkai in it but like not everything has to follow in impact 3rds footsteps man like come on. like that’s all I’m gonna say cuz well spoilers and I don’t know how to put a spoiler block on these but ya, anyways tho enough rambling from me enjoy ch 20 as we finally discover one of the secerts of the Rosewood Ring hab fun and until next time.

Silver Dragon Vol. 1 Chapter 19

New Chapter!
Little short on time today, so no spiel today. but anyways I tried something new this time that is using the line spacing from how it was written in chinese if we don’t like I can go back the to before doesn’t matter to me. Also I added some letter sounds instead of trying to subsitute sounds characters make for words since I feel that sometimes it hurts the nuances of the novel ecspcially later one when we have cute jasmine sound effects sooo like I decided to just use letter for sound effects, if we don;t like that I can just not do that. Also something I should have probably tl noted I didn’t because time so yaaa, anyway gn enjoy.

And that’s 5. I know I promised that 5 chapters in december and it’s technically january 1 but close enough. Also because I’ve been proofreading for the last 5 hrs I didn’t feel like doing any tl notes there maybe be some better words for a couple of things then that I decided to translate but like it doesn’t change anything in the story sooo ya, I’m just to lazy to explain rn. But aaaannnywayss happy reading I’ma go die now.

New Chapter!
The apocalypse has passed, finals are over and I’m barak, Also hella late but lessssssssss gooooooooooooooooooooooooooo T1 Won worlds!!!!!!! Oh ya I took certain liberties with the translation like name I made it something much more english friendly and there was like a description of food where like if you look up the description used in the specific chinese words then it’s technically gravy but like it made no sense to be gravy and logically my brain says at least with my understanding of how we like to use words in chinese there’s a 99 percent chance that he just used it to say the meat was juicy…. anyways GN I’ma go die now.

Silver Dragon Vol. 1 Chapter 13

New Chapter!
Ayeeee lesss go I manage to scrape together the motivation, banzai, banzai, banzai. In all seriousness tho this is actually because I failed a math quiz and needed something to draw my attention away while also allowing me to feel somewhat productive. Basically saying I’m not back to a normal schedule and I know I sound like or I guess it’d be read like a broken clock by now but still same old I’ll try to upload when school isn’t killing me. On a bright note tho, I dunno if anyone is a league and T1 fan but I am kind of a T1 fanboy and T1 just 3-0’d LNG huuuuuggeeee. Maybe I should be rooting for the LPL teams since I’m chinese but screw that supporting your own nation jazzzzzzz I ain’t communist T1 FIGHTING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! On another note I completely for got that the author doesn’t immediately use jasmine instead of Mo Li for when Mo Li changes into a girl so ignore my previous comment like 9 chaps back. Also this chap went on to remind me how much I actually appreciate the fact that the author doesn’t just constantly ramble about boo hoo I’m a girl like every other novel it’s nice. Like it ain’t completely gone it’s just not over stressed which I appreciate. (PS I hope to not regret saying this later as my exact memories are a bit hazy…)

Silver Dragon Vol. 1 Chapter 12

New Chapter!
Aight Sooo like I there was a few note I was going to leave in the in the references in the chapter itself but I kinda messed up while uploading (don’t worry silva if you see this I fixed it, if I didn’t scream at me later) and I don’t wanna go add them now cuz way to ded inside. but anyway sorry not sorry for not updating at all for like what is it almost 4 weeks now so a month I’m just really busy with school and I feel like I just don’t wanna exist anymore. What more I go to edit the chapter after not uploading for soo long and fricken superpower chatgpt is broken and I can’t just copy and paste for easy proofreading anymore …╥﹏╥ I’d love to say with enthusiasm hell ya I’m back and updates will come frequently again but like that’s just gonna be impossible rn. My brain feels like it’s constantly on the verge of just not functioning anymore so same as last time I’ll try to upload as much as possible…. but ya I’ll try. Anyway chapter 12 yaay I think next chapter is actually a cute jasmine ch soo maybe I’ll try a squeeze out some motivation and do it quickly but it all depends on school… no one told me that this term of college was gonna be so much hell!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Silver Dragon Vol. 1 Chapter 11

New Chapter!
Ahhhh what a week or two weeks I suppose. Anyways I dunno if anyone saw but I posted in the discord yesterday that there was a power outage in my area so I couldn’t upload on Sunday like I have been… ignore my 1 week break. I know this was a really long interval between updates and I’m gonna be completely honest I almost decided to not upload tonight even tho the translation was done and I just needed to proofread. Reasons being 1. I’ve started college again and I’m taking like 19 or 20 credits can’t remember exactly anymore, so my word is getting back into the swing of things really rough. 2. I’ve been having a little bit of anxiety partly because of college and partly because of some other more personal things. 3. Everything that I just mentioned is actually kinda really stressing me out. So with that being said I’ll try to still upload as much as possible but sometimes I just might not have it in me to upload, and since I value the quality of what I’m uploading over speed…. well at least I think it’s pretty aight quality, I might not be able to keep up the once a week uploads that I have been doing for the last month. Basically this a long winded excuse of why I might miss uploads is what you need to take away from this whole spiel, that being said enjoy… I forgot how slow the early chapters were… I’m sry I upload so slow but bear with me I promise the story is good.

Silver Dragon Vol. 1 Chapter 10

New Chapter!
Aight sooo I’m panicking inside because of the start of college again. I always kinda have a minor panic attack at the start of the term and end of the term sooo yay but here we go chapter 10. Like tbf I forgot but I honestly kinda feel bad for the subordinates in this chapter like I understand that as an assassin you need to be ready to die as is what comes with the job but like man it really feels like the extras just got screwed over by their overly cocky leader tbh. But anyway enjoy the chapter oh wait I just remembered I was tired and didn’t feel like putting it in the tl note so I’ll just ask here but like I translated 小鬼 as rascal but I have seen people translate it as little devil before which I don’t really like too much since it’s kinda wrong IMO but I was wondering if anyone had preferences or suggestions on what it should be translated as. but anyways this time for real enjoy the chapter. bye bye.

Silver Dragon Vol. 1 Chapter 9

Aight so my wordpress literally tried to prevent me from posting tonight but I prevailed. Also yay our first cannon fodders are about to go look for death. Also onwards with the plot ladies and gentlemen after like 8 chapter of exposition we can finally continue with the plot. Also is anyone else dreading the start of college? I know I am I really don’t wanna have to actually try to readjust my sleep schedule. Aside from that I don’t have much to say this week just really tired but I think I honestly have some slight m̲a̲s̲o̲c̲h̲i̲s̲t̲ tendencies since I’m not going to bed but hey monkeys and typewriters amiright. Welp anyways enjoy the chapter, oh ya also prepare you insulin pills the story is about to um….. give random moments of extreme fluff.

Silver Dragon Vol. 1 Chapter 8

Aight so I forgot to mention last chapter but like we got to see that Elsa actually does care for Mo Li, we also get the explanation of why she’s being soo crass to him essentially. Also are we excited everyone the story is finally about to really start, I also didn’t realize how much possibly unintentionally possibly intentional foreshadowing there are in these chapters it’s really funny actually. Also this chapter was pain to translate the author decided to use so many things that don’t translate super well if anyone say my freak out in the server yaa that’s why. another thing is like man I wish I had actual chinese friends to hang with that could like teach me all the modern internet slang but at last sadge. Another funny thing I found is that certain slangs that I know are kinda like all old people slangs because modern day versions seem to have changed. or maybe I’m just stupid but who knows at least while I was going through our terms we have on the site I feel like thing have changed but whatever. anyways enjoy the chapter;).
