creds: BuzzBannana and Devila
I was planning doing Both are Foxes, but welp, it just happened this way.
Happy New Years!!
Special thanks to my friend who will be going by devila for helping a little with chapter 132!
A little disappointed with word ads. Nearly 300k views last month yet less than $25??? That doesn’t seem right
Oh well. We hit over 3 mil in one year
(altho only started picking up in February actually after posting in Reddit). We started last year during winter break too, so. I’m hoping we hit 5 mil next year. 8 mil total, for clarifications. If you scroll to the verrrry bottom of the front page, I added view counts. Just so it wasn’t in people’s faces but you guys could still see. My goal is to raise at least $1.5k by next year and with the rate of donations + word ads, (much more money from donations than from ads even though I thought it was supposed to be the other way around, love you guys <3) that should be reasonably reached! I’ll make that my new years resolution along with better grades for the next two semesters. Apparently senior year last semester means nothing so I’LL BE FREEEEE and you guys will be hit with waves of chapters, haha.
Once again, HAPPY NEW YEARS!!! I HOPE NEXT YEAR IS BETTER THAN THIS YEAR!!
Title literally means “getting married” but I think wedding sounds better. The even more literal meaning is “becoming intimate”.
Also, SPOILER, I’m going to have to remember this chapter 4 because I think this and maybe chapter 1 have something important and the author actually planned ahead, unlike other long Chinese novels. Then again, it’s only 120+ chapter compared to some that are like 1000+
I will be focusing on Both are Foxes now. It’s hard.
Thank you Rehoboth O. for your kind donation!
Thank you donater Kirindas! (At least they commented they were, I don’t think someone would try to impersonate Kirindas. Kirindas plis confirm!)
My goal is to reach chapter 130+ by New Years eve + chapter 5 of Both are Foxes. Even though it was almost finals, I read almost all 120 ish chapters cuz it’s so good. I’m at the sequel /extra ish part of it. A few things borderline NSFW that I’m sure I would get judgement for translating but whatever. I know gravity tales did like a dark gravity translations or something lol maybe I’ll do something similar
Thank you Cristina and HOLY CRAP THANK YOU JOVY ($50?????? )
All donations highly appreciated!!! It will all be going to charity minus money for raws (finally not in the red any more lol)
Wordpress hasn’t shown us what we’ve made from last month yet -_- but hopefully they show it soon.
OKOK I know you guys all waiting for this chapter enjoy~~~~~~
see ya guys at around Dec. 20
finals coming up T_T
Special thanks to our third donater Elizabeth V.! And awesome sauce, libraryrocker, I seen ya too don’t worry!
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)
There’s going to be another release tomorrow and then there might be a bulk release later, either also tomorrow or later on this week + Sunday. Then I’ll probs be gone until winter break (starts at Dec. 20 ish)
