Life with a Tail Chapter 12.5

Happy Valentines! I know, I know. I’m a day late for most of you. It’s the best I could do.

Anyways, what? A 0.5 chapter? What’s the deal with these? Shh, listen. It’s basically side stories or different perspectives. I advise you to never skip these. It’s very “intriguing”.

This chapter in particular… I will not say anything. Just read it.

Dragon Princess – Chapter 63

So recently someone came into the Discord asking if they could translate a series into Spanish.
Some talking happened, and that got me thinking about editing and whatnot.
You see, a lot of choices are made when translating, and while editing (which is the main difference between it and proofreading).
Every westernization, TL note, etc. is a choice made by someone who is not the original author.
These choices can add up to something very different from what was originally intended. The easiest more modern example would be Dragon Ball’s Goku, I suppose. See, in the Japanese version, he’s more of a country bumpkin who likes fighting, while in the dub he’s more akin to Superman, fighting for justice.
Editorial choice is also why there are so many different versions of Shakespeare’s plays. We don’t actually know what he wrote, we just have many different recordings of the plays, made by different people (including some knockoff street performances made for the masses). Some of the recordings don’t even come from people who saw the play, but were in the background of it. It doesn’t help that Shakespeare probably also edited his own plays over the years too.

Demon Sword Maiden Chapter 125

I did a damage check today following that storm. While there’s no real problems exactly……we did lose a large percentage of our garden fences.
It’s not a big loss since most of the fence was falling apart anyway and was in the process of being replaced, and half of it had already been switched out for a type of fence impossible to blow over.
So it’s a bit of a mess in the garden but there’s no real loss.

On another note, I think I’ve finally got around the problem I had with starting that novel I said I was going to write after I abandoned that other novel I said I was going to write.
I’ve started work on the first couple of chapters, and I’m going to adjust them and such until I feel like they’re in a position I can build a story off.
I hope you’re all looking forward to it. Because I’m not. Nervous.

Demon Sword Maiden Chapter 124

Uwaaaa. So this big storm called Ciara went straight over the UK today.
I know a lot of you readers probably live in places with significantly more extreme weather, but the UK basically never gets it.
So like, nothing we have is cut out to deal with it.

Anyway, it took out my power for most of the day! Luckily it came back in time for me to do my daily gachas!
I COMPLETELY OVERSLEPT BECAUSE MY ALARM WASN’T ON!
It was quite extreme. Ironically I slept through most of it because of that.

Luckily it didn’t seem to do much damage to the garden, but I haven’t had a chance to properly check yet.

Not Sure, Another World Chapter 35

So I don’t remember if I said here or not, but a short while ago I made some bids on a 22/7 keychain on ebay and it arrived today!
I have my very own chibi Sakura to accompany me when I leave the house now!

I got it for like one 10th of the price of the other sellers too!
(Seriously, the people who resell anime goods online are crazy money grubbers! They basically triple the price of even the most mundane things!)

The 22/7 anime is weird though.
On the subject of buying things I was going to get the SCP light novel, Looking Glass, but apparently it’s not that well written?
The prices are really strange too! It’s almost the exact same price to buy it in physical as it is in ebook!
You might as well pay that tiny bit extra for the physical so you can loan it out to friends!

Not Sure, Another World Chapter 34

It’s now time for your weekly dose of Illegal Oneesan!

I’ve been multi-gacha drifting this week.
Both Honkai and FGO have events going on currently. I was originally focusing on Honkai but I basically cleared those events and have redirected focus to FGO.
I have a lot of grinding to make up so I’ve been burning gapples to make the difference.

But seeing all my waifus give me chocolates is totally worth it!
Valentines events banzai! Banzai!
