Together Forever (至此终年) — Epilogue 2 and Preface *NOVEL COMPLETED*


This is it! The ending! Post contains the last epilogue, the author’s preface, a little scene taken from Weibo, and, as customary, some closing comments from me for the end of a project. Thank you to all readers, whether you followed along from the get-go or are just hopping in now as the story comes to its ending. This story is very special to me, so completing its translation is oh-so-gratifying. 🙂

I’m sure you can guess from the picture above what this epilogue might be about. “Time, in the end, had still been kind to them.”

Together Forever (至此终年) — Epilogue 1


I had originally planned to split Epilogue 1 into two parts, but while I was prepping this post, I changed my mind and hurried to translate it all in one go. So, today, you have an extra long update, two posts in one. I will accept hugs, ramen, and creme brûlée as expressions of your love. 😛 Actually, this epilogue is quite sad. I cried several times, and hence, I didn’t want to drag your heartbreak out over two posts. No, they don’t go through any more hardships. The epilogue just explains some things during the time when they were apart. Next post is the final one for the novel, and it will be pure sweetness.

Oh gosh, this one hurt even more than the last one, especially that text message from Gu Pingsheng. 😦

Together Forever (至此终年) — Final Chapter Part 2 of 5


This is a terribly busy time of the year for me, and I am particularly swamped for the next week. My apologies in advance if I don’t respond to comments within my normal timeframe. However, I have set-up my updates to post automatically for the next week, so even though I may not be around, you’ll still see the posts. 🙂  (This update today is the first of the batch of auto-posts.)

Tong Yan finds out that something she had thought might be solved was really only patched with a Band-Aid, that “the rainstorm actually had not turned to blue skies.”

Together Forever (至此终年) — Final Chapter Part 1 of 5


We’re heading into the last stretch and the final chapter.

Gu Pingsheng thinks about their future. 🙂 And on top of first aid and medicinal and herbal foods, Tong Yan is learning massage and acupoints as well as driving. She’s putting so much pressure on herself.
