Life: A Black and White Film (一生一世,黑白影画) — Chapter 4.2

Cheng Muyun only needs to sit on a couch and then… Um, here’s some tissue. I know some of you might be focusing on the very end of this chapter (ahem, ahem), but there’s little bits of food for thought sprinkled throughout, especially in the conversation with Meng Liangchuan.

Don’t be So Proud (别那么骄傲) – Chapter 10.3

I’ve gotten a few comments/inquiries over the last while but they generally fall into the same category, so I’m going to answer them all here. Most of this is a reiteration of what I have said before, so my apologies if I’m causing you to feel déjà vu.

No, this translation is not at risk for getting dropped, so fans of this one, you can breathe out in relief. 🙂 During this period when I am doing the updates for Proud, they will be posted at the same time every week, so just check back at the regular time. However, I am only subbing in on this translation for Peanuts while she is away, and while I *do* strive my very hardest to get the posts out every week, I cannot give a hard, do-or-die commitment to it. (I know I’m not promising a firm commitment, but in the last 12 weeks since I temporarily took over, I have not missed a single update, so that should give you an indication of what I mean by “strive my hardest.”) Lastly, my overall update schedule has been thought through based on what I am able—and also willing—to commit to. Thank you for the interest in this translation, and I will graciously and gratefully view that as encouragement. 🙂 However, this is ultimately Peanut’s project, and I’m here only because she and I really didn’t want to leave you guys hanging for any longer on this translation. My primary and personal project at this moment is still Black and White Film, and therefore, one update per week is what I am willing and able to do for Proud. Thank you for your understanding. ❤

Now, with housekeeping out of the way…

Shen Xi’s way of getting through exams. And plans are meant to be broken, I guess, especially by your own dad.

Life: A Black and White Film (一生一世,黑白影画) — Chapter 3.1

I love whitewater rafting. Never done it in Nepal, though, and this rafting trip that Wen Han and the others are on is much more adventurous, it seems, than what I’ve been on. 🙂 (Although I have fallen into the water while rafting, too… That’s a funny story in itself. Don’t worry, we were at a calm part of the river.)
