This is for [livejournal.com profile] chesauroshin, who has always been a support to me as well as one of the most down to earth and lovely people in this fandom, on her birthday. I wanted originally to do a Riku and Terra scene for you, but I realised I didn't have that book... when I do, that will be dedicated to you too ♥ Thank you for all the kind words and motivation over the years. I hope you continue to find happiness and fulfilment in this fandom as well as in life ♥♥

I go home for the holidays tomorrow, which MIGHT mean limited internet access, like last year. Hopefully, due to different living circumstances, the internet might be better, but I'm not sure.

Anyway, just a heads up!

Still not dead...

...Though it almost feels that way! It's almost the end of the school year here, and assessment is killing me. 

What that means is, though, that if I survive, in about three weeks I will be home until January next year. And yes, the annual exile from the internet is upon me once again.

I think it will be a good thing this time, though. I fully plan to use that free time (that I'm not using on the USB [livejournal.com profile] onthecount sent me, which I've been saving, hee) translating the novels, because
a) it keeps my Japanese from going rusty,
b) it's a personal goal and
c) I promised.

So! If I'm not a huge flake for once, I plan to get all the novels I own done and dusted. That means all three of the BBS novels, the first Kh2 novel, and possibly the last few stories from Short Stories 2. So please look forward to it!

Of course I might not be able to post them until next year, but... you know me. I can usually weasel a way ;D

Hell, if you're really lucky I might use them to procrastinate from study in the three weeks of exam block that start next week, but I dunno. My brother's getting me Sims 3 Pets...

Anywaysss

Hope everyone is healthy and happy ♥ Til next time!

Hey guys,

Just wanted to say, I'm really sorry I haven't been posting novel translations recently.

The truth is, all the things I love to do have been stressing me out, from big things like study for the subjects I love at school to tiny things like getting up to face the day. At times it also included talking to people online who I love, and I'm so sorry for that too.

When things stress me out I tend to avoid them, and then make excuses to pretend I'm not stressed (especially when it's irrational stress in the first place). I've been telling myself I'm not in the mood, or I'm tired because of xyz reason, or because I'm just a lazy person, but the past few days I've thought really hard about it and I've faced up to it, and I feel horrible.

I know what the problem is (it's something I've been trying to deal with since the beginning of the year, but I was going about it backwards: it's not the symptoms that are the problem, but why I'd even have them, after all). And I'm going to try harder to fix it and try to stop being in denial about my real underlying problems, and most importantly, try to start doing the things I love again.

Part of this means I really, really want to keep translating the novels, even if to use to help myself through this funk. I absolutely love doing it, and it's good for my Japanese.

Well, that's the plan. I can't promise I will have anything to post soon, but it will happen. I just wanted to apologise for that and explain, because I know it can be frustrating when online people drop of the face of the earth, especially mid-project like this. 

So yeah, hope you guys are all well, and if you want, wish me luck :3

Just a quick update to say: I'm not dead, and I am planning on doing more novel translations. Life has pretty much steamroller'd me on many different levels, and I just haven't found the time or energy to do it lately. But, I promise that as soon as I find that energy I will work on them again, I haven't given up :3

I also need to extend an apology to the various people I keep in contact with outside of LJ :c I really do love you guys, and I'm sorry that I haven't been replying/commenting/msn'ing/skyping like I want to. As I said, steamroller'd. 

Buuut! In case I didn't mention, the amazingly lovely [livejournal.com profile] ucco sent me Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep Vol 2: Best Friends for my birthday! :D :D I am halfway through the bios for that book, and I plan to get that up before I keep working on the first BBS novel~ I just hate those freaking bios. For now though, have some info on the book itself:

I found a nice scan of the cover here! The colours are actually a lot softer in real life, though. Aquaaaa~ so cuuute X3 Unlike the boring sparkles on the back of the first book, this one has a weird picture of Lea and Isa, which I have taken a bad webcam shot of (and a closeup of Isa cause he is fabulous) for you, since I sadly don't have a scanner here :C (I sacrificed a boring white box with the barcode and stuff, if you're wondering about the dimensions, lol)

Apart from that, same as the first volume, there are also no extra illustrations by Amano Shiro in this book, just seven full colour bio pages with renders of most of the characters in the game. I already knew it wouldn't cause he said so and apologised about it on his blog in like March, but I was still kind of sad  :c Oh well, poor guy seems to have a lot on his plate. Haha, he also answered a reader question about whether he and Kanemaki are friends; he says just like she wrote in the Afterword, they keep making and having to scrap plans to meet 8D;

Hope you guys are all doing well ♥

white wine in the sun - a christmas song

My internet reached the cap again, annoyingly, so this has taken ages and I hope it actually works...



I've only listened to this song twice in my life, because it's made me cry both times. Pretty much everything in it strikes a chord with me, and if you are a not-very-religious-but-not-so-cynical person too, then I think you will like it too :3

I've uploaded for you the version he played with the Queensland Pops Orchestra - it's very beautiful.

Introduction


I know you, I walked with you once upon a dream... )

I own this book all thanks to the amazing [livejournal.com profile] ucco ~ ILU~ You can see the cover here.  The back cover is just sparkles, I can take a webcam shot if you want but it's nothing special! As I mentioned in a previous post, there are also no extra illustrations by Amano Shiro in this book; instead, there are 7 Bio pages in full colour with nice renders of every character in the game.

You might have noticed the stars; they aren't in the book, they just use boring old extra spacing to show scene transitions. But I like to think of interesting things (binary in seven days, xxx for xion axel and roxas in days, the <<ЯR>> in reverse/rebirth~) to make it pretty. Just know that it's not in the original.

I also can't be bothered to do translation notes for this right now, but if you have any questions about choices please don't hesitate to ask!!  :D  Comments and suggestions and corrections are also always welcome~ o3o

Thank you so much for reading ♥

Or 'how the quest for gay subtext led me to a career path'

Do you know the reason I first started translating the novels? 

Well, I'm going to tell you. Slash/yaoi haters and people who will lose respect for me knowing I ship slash pairings, avert ye eyes or forever hold your peace.

 BACK



:DDDDD

*too much to do*

*starts a massive post on KHInsider*

*gets distracted*

*flails*



OH YEAH here is a stupid Ven-->Terra joke amv I've been waiting to post for [livejournal.com profile] chesauroshin! Ven is just too easy to tease o3o




Ummm I've moved back into the dorms, it is hot as fucking fuck and the thunder is deafening. I wish it would hurry up and rain to clear out the muggy air... but then it might just make it worse... IDK

I love being back~ Seeing all my friends again and catching up. And seeing all the new little kiddely-winks moving in and being all D8 and scared like I was last year, hee~ so cute~

Bought all my textbooks (and a book I didn't need about the origins of offensive things in English just arghjfklesd so hilarious, I have to type up some of the stuff about 'yo mamma'), set up my room, I am full of positive energy!

ALSO ALSO

[livejournal.com profile] ucco !! I got the package!! :D Thank you so much for the postcard and the ramen keychain--was that one your sister made, like the cheesecake one [livejournal.com profile] bubblegum_miley  showed me? Or was it from Japan~? Either way it is so weirdly cute 8D 

And EEEE THANK YOU SO SO SO MUCH FOR THE BBS NOVEL~~~~ :D :D

For people who are only really mainly interested in the novels:

I'm pretty busy with the dorm's orientation week crap, but I will probably find some time to get parts up VERY soon ;D (This novel goes up to the Terra-and-Aqua misunderstanding in Radiant Garden...!)

There are no Amano illustrations inside the book, which disappointed me, but the character profile pages shiny coloured pages with renders from the game which I've never seen in a KH novel before. It's all very posh looking o3o I don't have a scanner though, so I can't share them for a while yet :C

OMG I CAN LOG INTO MSN NOW


If I have promised/said I'd do any things, PLEASE remind me and I'll get on them soon o3o


ps - [livejournal.com profile] roterstern  and [livejournal.com profile] onthecount , being back at uni means if you still want to write to me, now you have to use the brisbane address  ♥♥♥♥♥♥

crawling towards the sun )

 

epilogue )

It’s done!! I’ve had this book for what, over a year now. And now it’s finally done! :D Thanks for reading~ Ahh I always feel so happy whenever I knock a whole book over. ANYWAY! Eternal thanks and sappy love to chesauroshin, whose enthusiasm and encouragement motivated me more than I can say. I hope this was interesting, and even if it’s not really, I hope that finally knowing the contents of this book eases something :3 OR INSPIRES SOME LOVELY FIC ABOUT RIKU IN SOME WAY. JUST SAYIN

I only own two novels I haven’t done completely, now :D The first KH2 novel, and the Short Stories 2 novel! Annnnnd there are nine novels I don’t own yet (I can count, it’s nine right orz)

BbS 1|KH2 2,3,4|CoM 1,2|KH1 1,2|SS 1

I think [livejournal.com profile] ucco  is sending me the BBS novel, and even if she isn’t, I plan to do this one next cause BBS is SO MUCH LOVE. But I have to think about a bigger plan here… so what should I buy now? Part of me says I should just plough through all the KH2 novels, seeing as I have the first one. But part of me knows I have Org-loving friends who’d love to see more Axel and Larxene from the CoM novels. And then another part of me wonders if I should just work from the beginning and start at KH1, could be interesting. Thennn the last part of me says that the Short Stories book will be easy and have variety and I’d knock it over quick as.

I wonder if there’s a coded novel coming??

(Note to self: Amazon won’t ship to a PO Box and you live either back-of-whoop-whoop nowhere where couriers can’t go, or at a university dorm where AGAIN couriers don’t deliver. So you need to find a good plan :/)

(…Gets distracted thinking of Fallout: New Vegas)

……..SO WHAT DO I DO GUYS. Please comment if you are interested! :D
