Stunning Edge Chapter 161

Enjoy!

Side note:

You might be wondering why the poll is not here…

So even though the poll was only around a week, it became pretty clear that Doctors without Borders was consistently getting around 50% of the votes and that continuing to poll wouldn’t be necessary

So yeah, $500 bucks to Doctors without Borders and $100 to the Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund, applause to all people who donated and thank you readers for the ad revenue 

(I know this might sound small, but I’m pretty proud :3)

In order for people to not feel like I’m lying or something I feel like I might upload a YouTube video as proof or smth, but yeah.

Thanks everyone!

Announcement


I want to keep this poll up for at least a month to ensure that people have enough time to research and decide which cause they support the most in (or add their causes to) this poll. Because polldaddy only works for one week, I’m going to add this poll to each post and keep track of all the answers. This also means you can vote multiple times. 

Stunning Edge Chapter 156 & Schedule Announcement

So…

School is about to start and reflecting on the summer (eek) I barely published anything compared to last year

So I’m going to revert back to trying(?!) to be on a schedule

School starts next week @_@ which means this schedule will be experimental for a month before I decide if it works out or not

If anyone is too lazy to click on the link:

Sun Mon Tues Wed Thurs Fri Sat
* SE * * BAF * SE

*extra SE

Sorry BAF fans, BAF is in ancient China and has harder Chinese in the first place whereas the SE author is super redundant in their use of Chinese, which makes it far easier to translate SE chapters. They’re also shorter by like 25%

ok announcement over

Enjoy!

(PS *slips in shameless promo* donations might increase chances of extra SE *wink wink*)

Both Are Foxes Chapters 2,3

I highly advised rereading from chapter 1 since there are important changes that might change your perception of the story, but if you don’t want to, you can start from here

Also, important note:

The whole story has really complex social nuances that I think are important to understanding the whole picture. (This story is basically reaally complex relationships plus interesting plot relevant to the relationships and reminds me of cheese in the trap, if you guys know that. Probably not, but sidenote: the drama does it no justice! Read the webtoon!)

I said this in chapter two, but since this is really important and is going to happen throughout allll the chapters, I’m saying it here and on the table of contents page. In order to fully convey it but not make the English sound weird, one asterick means higher status and could show arrogance  if referring to self while two astericks mean referring to lower status.

Here are examples that don’t have spoilers

1 asterisk *:

The emperor often uses the word 朕 which means I or we for imperial use only. Only the emperor can refer to himself this way. Ex: even he*, the emperor, would not be able to alter it

And when it’s referring to someone else of higher status, like referring to Ren Fengyao, one of the main characters, who is a 公子, which means a young man who is a noble, I’m using young master or my lord if possible, but if not, I’m using you*. I have no actual example yet so this is a made up one: “Can you* please help us?”

2 asterisks **:

Let’s say Ren Fengyao is a very politely introducing himself. The example would be: I** am Ren Fengyao

And when someone is referring to someone else in a rude way, it would be like: You** ugly woman.  

About Us Update

Since we recently bought the domain, we changed a few things like the icon and header image.
I don’t think many people care but just in case you’re interested, here is a short explanation for the creation of the website and why it was originally called japanese mafia lady along with some other clarifications
But seriously the glorious header image!!! Kanoi and Penny are so pro!!!

Stunning Edge Chapter 112-116 (+ Both are Foxes announcement + Chapter 1)

HAPPY THANKSGIVING~~~~~~

I wanted to get to chapter 120, but whatever

I’m going to try to get to chapter 120 by the end of this week

Also, for Both are Foxes, I’m going to first read ahead. It’s like 5x harder to translate than Stunning Edge, first because I’m much more used to Stunning Edge and second, it’s in more formal, old-ish Chinese and refers to the past. I mean I’ve got the basics down of imperial China like concubines and stuff but I want to read ahead so I can get a more firmer grasp. I’ve translated one chapter but keep in mind I’m not assuring 100% accuracy just yet. I’m thinking I’ll be able to take it on more seriously during winter break (starts Dec 20) TBH I like this story better than Stunning Edge, but I feel more obligated to work on Stunning Edge because I already feel like I’m letting people down by being so slow, I’m so sorryyyy

Special thanks to Zio, who helped with 115 a little and our second donor Leonhard M.!

(I’m still shocked that people think we’re good enough to donate to thank you so much T_T PS: Please keep in mind how clothes sold on Black Friday are made. In a few cases it’s done by illegal immigrants in be US who are exploited, but in most cases it’s done in third world countries like Bangladesh where young girls are pulled away from schools (MALALA FOUNDATION) and forced to work 16 hours a day, every day at extremely low wages in labor condition violating sweatshops
And my friend who informed me of this says (i just stole and rearranged his words tbh) :
So for the sacrifice of those exploited global citizens, lets #MakeFridayLiveableAgain <- he’s trying to make this trend, although I doubt it will work, but who knows :P)
