Real life has proved to be overwhelming with no end in sight, so I have decided to formally declare that I will stop translating this novel. I would like to thank everyone who has followed and read my translations up until today. I would also like to apologize for being unable to respond to those who have tried to contact me to pick up this work and wish whoever does decide to do so the best of luck.
Sorry for the long silence. I just got a chance to catch my breath yesterday. I was swamped with preparing for the Lunar New Year celebration. Then I got sick because of said Lunar New Year celebration. Thanks to modern medicine, I was able to go to work, but it kind of killed me afterward. Yes, translating is so easy a zombie could do it. 🙂
The main point: If you guys find a candidate you like for this project, I will hand it over. Before then, I will still try to churn out as much as I can. Those of you who read my comments know that this is my hobby not my business so I don’t believe I have any claim over it. As always, thank you for all the support.
Okay. Before we get to the good stuff. A few sentimental words. Like King of Hell Chu, I did not see that coming. I know most of my readers are patient, but I am truly shocked and awed by all of your responses. Since the last post, I am now looking at a strong possibility being hired for a great career opportunity. It will require some serious after-hour learning on my part as it is a brand new area for me. (I love being busy so don’t feel sorry for me.) It will probably take me months to get everything, but I should have set hours to do more translating after that. In the meantime, we’re definitely still looking at my standard turtle pace if you are cool with that. Thank you for all the awesome comments.
Back to the story: I haven’t had a chance to update the character list, but you can assume that most of the characters you meet are elder siblings of our heroes. The shared surnames pretty much tells you who’s who. Here are chapter 266 and chapter 267.
Chapter 264. Follow the breadcrumb trail for 265. 🙂
Two important notes:
- My thanks to J.C. from Essex, UK and C.W. from London, UK for your donations.
- As you may have noticed, I have been slow with releasing the chapters each week. This is my pet project, and I cannot bear to let it go. But I have to face the fact that I am killing it by going so slow. I am going to give myself the month of November to see if I can go back to normal hours. If I can’t translate at least seven chapters a week by that deadline, I will leave this project to more capable hands to translate. Thank you to everyone for being so patient.
Thank you to C.F. from Angers, France for your donation.
Oh Chu Yang, it seems you’ve finally decided to cross that line…
(Reading this chapter is ill-advised for those who are faint of heart or sound of mind.)
Sorry guys. Spring and I have a love-hate relationship. Teary eyes, runny nose, sinus headache, drowsiness… Usually not all at once, but you get the idea.
So you are here reading my excuses instead of a chapter, which is more than fifty percent done by the way.
Just imagine me getting rained on by King of Hell Chu to keep you going until tomorrow.
“What? *spit* You’re not done with the chapter? *spit* *spit* My little Loli will never grow up at this pace! *spit* *spit* *spit* What are you? A turtle? *spit* *spit* No, calling you a turtle would be insulting to the turtles! *spit* *spit* Get two chapters out tomorrow or I will execute all nine generations of your family! *spit*…”
Sorry guys. So tired today, I will not be able to finish this chapter in time. I should be able to send this to my editor in the morning.
Stay tuned for yet another episode filled with verbal and physical abuse.
A particular piece of Ikea furniture proved to be very challenging to put together. I will be burning the midnight oil tonight, but probably won’t be able to give you a new chapter until tomorrow morning. So sorry to all faithful fans of TTNH.
Yep, put on your thinking caps! Anyways, thanks for reading and all the lovely comments!
