Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days Vol 3: Xion-Seven Days( Contents, Bios, Prologue )
Today I received the 3rd and last Days novel (among other things ohoho) from the unspeakably lovely ucco
, (♥♥♥♥) which I have begun to translate! You can see the cover and illustrations for this novel here
I have to be brutally honest with you for a second: Days reeeeeeally kills my soul. I hate the plot, I hate the characterisations, everything, and flipping through this novel has already caused me to literally scream in rage and throw the book down already, just gonna warn you (bubblegum_miley
can attest, she was there and has had to listen to me bitch about it all day orz).
Don't get me wrong, I know this is completely a personal thing, and I don't have anything against or think badly at all of people who do like Days. It's just that it is not at all to my taste, so I have to try very hard to keep working on it. I promise that everything I post, I put my utmost care into regardless of my undying hate. I want someone to enjoy the bloody thing, after all!
So! In order to keep myself motivated, I'm going to do one chapter of the Riku novel (R/R) for each chapter of Days I do. I mean, I would love to power through Days 3 in time for the BBS novel (whenever that is, idk yet) but if the stupid thing is going to make me hate translating and want to put it off, then that's not gonna work. Thus! Incentive method.
I worked very hard to finish Chapter 1 of R/R today, and so the next chapter you can look forward to is Chapter 1 of Days 3!
Thank you so much for reading ♥
