Announcement: My Absence

Hi everyone, I’m really sorry I mass ghosted ya’ll. Stuff just got bad for me near the end of the summer wrt personal relationships. Then the semester started and that got me even more behind cause I don’t do well with online work.

And I stopped really viewing this as just a hobby a while ago, so getting behind like this felt like something I wasn’t allowed to do, and announcing a hiatus so I could focus on school felt like it would be even worse.

As I went further without updates I felt too ashamed to face ya’ll. A reader reached out to me and said people are worried, so I figure it was time to get over myself.

I don’t have a date when I know I’ll be able to get back to regular schedules, cause it looks like online school is going to last a while thanks to the US COVID-19 response.

However, my finals are next week, and I’m hoping I’ll be able to take some time once they’re done and try to set up a rhythm again.

I’m really sorry for abandoning everyone. Next time, even if it feels hard, I’m going to make sure to communicate with you.


Novel Announcement: Star Chart’s Edge

Name: Star Chart’s Edge

Author: Dark Circles

Synopsis: An interplanetary spaceship began a journey fraught with crisis and uncertainty one thousand years ago, burdened with humanities hopes and dreams…. An ordinary woman followed that journey, experiencing a baptism of friendship, kinship and passion that allowed him to understand human nature through death and separation.

TL Note: While I do enjoy Doomsday Lord its what amounts to the fast food of literature. This story, however, I consider to be on the same level as Throne of Magical Arcana or Kingdom’s Bloodline. Just reading the pure MTL chapters was enough to make my blood boil.

While this novel has some fantasy style elements I would classify it under “hard scifi”. Some of the major elements of the story focus around mech combat so people who like modern military novels or mechs in general will love this. Its also not a brainless slog of “robot shoot robot”.

If there’s one word I would use to describe why this novel is so amazing it would be “anticipation”. Most trashy LN spoon feed you combat and dialogue but those that stand out have a masterful use of anticipation. I really hope everyone will enjoy this.

I’ll be translating this novel at a much slower pace since I spend roughly twenty hours per chapter on it. So it may not get released more than twice a month lol


Novel Announcement: Doomsday Lord

Name: Doomsday Lord

Author: Wishing For A Pillow To Sleep With

Synopsis: The world goes through an apocalypse and transforms into an RPG with city building elements. The protagonist Cheng Yang transmigrates back in time to the day before the apocalypse and uses his memories to become a city lord.

TL Note: So the old MTL died of “have no money” disease. I’m going to pick up the translation of the novel. I’ll be starting from the beginning just so I can get my translation skills up since this is my first time doing MTL. I’m also a bastard so I’ll be making changes to the story so as to make it (in my opinion) better.

Example Change: The novel states that everyone without exceptions must pay 10 points to gain a class but the MC didn’t need to. Added a line that states why he is an exception that fits with established canon.
