Bad, Shadow, bad!! No cookie!

April 21st, 2007 (10:53 am)
hungry

current mood: hungry

*glares at self*

Enough's enough, already! Get to work! You're two eps behind where you wanted to be by this time! No more excuses! WORK!

Translator Shadow: "Can I go to Tim Horton's for a muffin first?"

"NO!" *glare*

TS sits meekly at computer.

"That includes you too Editor!" *cracks whip*

*meep!* Editor Shadow scuttles over and joins TS.

*sigh* Well, there you have it. Shadow's been bad this week and isn't allowed out for the next 48 hours or until ginny_t says it's okay. She'll be the first one to know if TS and ES have been good as they'll bounce back what she sent earlier this week. ^^;;

And assuming anyone is still reading rather than either staring off into the distance in disbelief or wondering if they should be calling the loony-bin, believe me when I say I'll take just about any distraction I can right now; I've been that bad. >.>

Oh yeah! Before I forget, and I will be mentioning this later, but I'm thinking of splitting off all FF related stuffs from this journal to my FF site's journal. That's over at yumenokage. Most of the entries there are in... ummm... "Japanese" but this place is getting really cluttered so I think it best to move anything FF over there regardless of language. Hopefully that'll help things a little. ^^;


Edit:
Done: 2 bounces, 1 re-bounce, 1 toss
Min. remaining 1 bounce; ideal 2 bounces...

I... I'm not going to make it... >.<;

Friended the yumenokage site, too! :-D

I have a Ghost Hunt question, if that's okay. Was the Ghost Hunt manga based on the "Evil Spirits" series from the late 1980's-early 1990's or the "Ghost Hunt" series from the early 2000's? Most of them are out of print anyway, it seems, although the used prices on the Ghost Hunt novels listed on Amazon.jp don't seem too bad. (The "Evil Spirit" novels used prices are outrageous, though!)

Not that I don't have enough Japanese novels sitting around waiting for me to attempt (12 Kingdoms, Nante Suteki Japanesque, etc). But Ghost Hunt has really captured my imagination and I'm not sure that they'll ever be licensed for English translation. (12 Kingdoms is fantasy, which sells well in YA (young adult) fiction, but mystery/horror isn't as popular a genre.)

(*peers about carefully* What? I'm compiling right now. I can't do any real editing or translating when the computer's busy like that.)

Cheers! ^_^

The GH manga is based off the evilly-priced Evil Spirits series published in Teens' Heart. (Akuryou ga Ippai!? through to Akuryou Datte Heiki! (jo & ge).) The Teen's Heart used book prices vary, but the worst is for the pink-spined first printing. >.<;

Otherwise, the GH novels are easier to read than 12 Kokuki. We can always hope that the novels will get licensed. ^_^

delivers easter eggs and rampages tokyo!

*delurks*
12 kingdoms was licensed by tokypop's popfiction ( Vol.1 is out, and includes the japanese illustrations from the white heart imprints, which is nice.), so there is hope for Ghost Hunt/Evil Spirits. As for the popularity of mystery/horror for teen fiction- think again. It does, as a genre, sell well, particularly if there is a romance angle added. (I've worked as a bookseller for eons. )
right, time to relurk...

*pokes Shadow* ^^
so everyone's asking are you guys planning on picking up season 2 of kokumono?
also Mona's wondering how much longer till Shadow posts remaining Ryuuki/Shuurei stuff and Reishin + shouka conversations

Posted by: Shadow (kagedreams)
Posted at: April 21st, 2007 08:00 pm (UTC)

Yup. Until there's a licensing announcement, we'll continue subbing. But no cookies until I do some serious catch-up work. *glares at self*

(It has to wait until after this weekend. I'm hoping for next week once I'm back into serious work mode. ^^; )

LOL! *leaves cookies anyways*

Let me know when your fics are up over there. I'll go ahead and friend your other journal too, if that's okay.

"Wai! Coo--" *thwack!*

"Oww..." *rubs bump from getting hit by a fan*

"No cookies! You haven't finished anything yet!" *glare*

"But, but..."

"No buts!"

*meep!*


Will do. Cheers! ^_^

*chuckles* you shouldn't work on an empty stomach, you know. It downgrades productivity and creativity. ^_~

*laughs* Point.

......But that doesn't excuse stealing the whole cookie jar! Hey!

^^;

Posted at: April 22nd, 2007 01:42 am (UTC)

Oh, you took the cookie jar, too? I didn't even notice. ^_~

Just return the jar, if you don't mind. I don't care if it's empty. XD

*returns empty cookie jars 1 & 2* ^^;

Born free~ at least until this compile's done... ^^;

GH - Yasuhara - darjeeling or earl grey?

But I don't want to be strict!

Posted by: Shadow (kagedreams)
Posted at: April 21st, 2007 09:33 pm (UTC)

Hey! No undermining the slave master! At least make sure TS and ES get most of their work done and out this weekend. ^^;

......Oh wait. Of course, the more strict you are, the more work you guys have... Umm...? ^^;

GH - Yasuhara

*swats lightly* That wasn't why!

(Although … Dear TS & ES: I will be back in an office of Dooom™ Monday through Wednesday. Don't you think it would be nicer if I could do so knowing that lots of the fun work got done ahead of time? {I'm much better at the Yasu method of Getting Things Done than the Naru method.})

I have been noticing your prompt replies … *mockstern*

*pours tea* More cookies?

Posted by: Shadow (kagedreams)
Posted at: April 21st, 2007 10:27 pm (UTC)

*laughs*

Only when I'm compiling. ^^; I let myself get more tea and take care of things then. ^_^

Tea! ......cookie? *looks about* *nab!*

...What was o_pessimists question? I think I missed it... @_@

Posted at: April 22nd, 2007 12:31 am (UTC)

^^; It's up in my post. I was asking what the convention was for responding to challenge fics like this, if they go to the message, the community, my own LJ... and also if X-posting was okay (my site and LJ for ex.). ^^;

Posted by: Kakurenbo (akinarei)
Posted at: April 22nd, 2007 01:46 am (UTC)

I'll probably post it in my journal and post a link the comms that it's there. It's such a pain to do an lj-cut in the comms after I've done the same thing in my journal and unfortunately LJ likes to tell me my posts are too large. @_@

Does that go away with a paid account?

I think I'll set up another journal for fanfiction anyhow and keep this one seperate-- that seems to be what most people recommend and do themselves. You and Yamikakyu for example.

Posted by: Shadow (kagedreams)
Posted at: April 22nd, 2007 04:01 am (UTC)

Ah, okay. I think the paid account issue is really only on the account itself and what you see on LJ (ie no advertisements whatsoever as long as you're logged in). I know I have length issues with replies though. I've had to cut a number of long replies into 2-3 parts because replies have a character length limit. ^^;

In my case, I think this LJ is getting too messy and confusing with everything in it, so splitting things off is a necessity. ^^; If I didn't have to, I probably wouldn't. :P

*takes back the cookie jars and leaves another* I have an unlimited supply.

I'm glad it's not just me who's run into problems! How annoying to have to cut replies though.

It's not only you who's about to take any distraction, me too. (even though i still have so much to do... and i have roughly 4 or 5 hours left = = ). I'm about to doze off too (reminds me of Mai, but I won't get to see Gene *sighs*)

Anyways, good luck on your work!!

Oh, and I HAVE become addicted to your fics, especially Soul Keepers.

I have 24 hours to do a minimum of a bounce and a toss. This could be quite tight, especially since the weather is conspiring against me. >.> (Sleepy weather). Cheers! Hope you finish(ed) your workload. ^_^
