This song is from Howl's Moving Castle and because I like it so much, I'm going to share it with you. So sit back, remember to right-click-save and enjoy the ride. XD Chieko Baishou - Sekai no Yakusoku

世界の約束 )

In other news, my new kotatsu is here and works like a dream. ::curls up under it, purring:: Ah the warmth.... ^__^;; Sadly, it is not strong enough to heat up my whole room but when you stretch your legs out under it or just have it sitting nearby, cranked up (as it is now), it's quite nice.

So after a little more work, I was able to get the third part of this short story done. *cheers* Didn't take too long to get it done, once I escaped distractions, which pleases me. Most of this part is a flashback, starting after the first line and ending before the last line. Just in case anyone was confused. This here translator was trying to figure out where the sound of fire was when she suddenly thought, "Ah, duh. She must be sitting in front of a fire, remembering all this."

The first two parts can be found here and here, for those needing a refresher. I have to say, I was impressed that while reading this (in Japanese), I understood enough to get chills at one point. I don't know why seeing it in English doesn't cause the same effect, but go figure. ^__^;;

Also, I've decided from here on out to translate what sounds the best, as opposed to making sure the words are as close to the original Japanese as possible. Because several times in this chapter I had sentences that were literal translations, but were so blah they were almost like reading a textbook or manual. "The handle was turned by Jane. The door opened. On the other side of the door was a person." Do you really want to call that a "short story"? ~__~;

...I feel like I should be dancing around with maracas to this song or something. ^___^;

Kitten asked about this and LJ makes a good archive, if nothing else, so I thought, "Why not post it? It's cut so no one who'd be bored to tears by it has to read it." So there you have it.

This is the first "chapter" of the first short story in the book Yevon's dogma and the People on the Spira in the section "The tales of no name summoners". There are seven chapters in total, but seeing as it took an entire afternoon to get through this first one (granted, I did spend time on copying the words and definitions into another document, to help with translating later chapters), the others will probably be slow to come. The rest is under the cut tag.
