50 Qs for Hakushaku to Yousei lovers

January 26th, 2009 (10:15 pm)

うんん。。。ちょっとやりたかったMemeなので。。。あっ!もちろん、伯妖的なものです~!これ、伯妖同盟からのものですね~!

A meme I've been wanting to do. Naturally it's HakuYou. :P It's from the HakuYou Doumei site.

'Ware potential spoilers and teasers in my answers. ^^;


伯爵と妖精好きさんに50の質問
50 Qs for Hakushaku to Yousei lovers

1. 『伯爵と妖精』を最初に読んだのは、いつ、どういうきっかけでですか?
えーと、多分去年の十月あたりだと思います。アニメが出た直後かな?それで、小説も読みたい!と思って探し出した。(笑)ま、今も、結構はまってるけど。。。 (汗)
When and what prompted you into first reading 'Hakushaku to Yousei'?
Umm... I think it was around Oct. last year; probably shortly after the anime started airing. Thanks to that, I absolutely wanted to read the novels and ended up hunting them down. *laughs* Although, I have to admit, I'm still fairly caught up in the series... ^^;

2. 現在、何巻まで出ていますか?
17巻がもう時期に出ますね。
How many volumes are currently out for the series?
Volume 17 is just about to be released.

3. 『伯爵と妖精』のどこが好きですか?
うん。。。何なのかな。。。?なんか、エドリディを見てると凄く笑うよね、あの二人。ずれてる恋愛とか、レイヴンの悪気がない台詞とか。色々ね。
What do you like about 'Hakushaku to Yousei'?
Hmm... I wonder what it is...? Something about watching EdgarxLydia just really makes me laugh; there's something about those two that's just so funny. ^^; The way those two's romance is going and Raven's little unintentional digs... Lots of things. :P

4. あなたのサイトで『伯爵と妖精』を取り扱っていますか? 扱っている方は、何を?(感想、イラスト、SSなど)
翻訳とそういうもの少し。出来たら二次創作も書きたいかな?でも、そうしたらちょっとAUに行く可能性もあります。まだ、伯妖を書く自信がない。

Do you have any 'Hakushaku to Yousei' content on your site? If so, what? (reviews, fanart, fanfics...)
Some translations and similar stuffs. If possible, I might like to get into some fanfic writing as well. But I suspect if I do, I'll also do some AU stuffs, too. However, I don't have the confidence to be able to write good HakuYou FFs quite yet.

5. 『伯爵と妖精』を好きになったことで、こういうことに興味を持つようになった、というものはありますか?
。。。?別に新しく興味を持つことはないと思います。以前から妖精や伝説に興味もあったし、別に鉱物に興味があるかはないし、二次創作や翻訳も以前ある作品もやってきたことです。

Have you taken an interest in anything new thanks to your liking of 'Hakushaku to Yousei'?
...? I don't think I've taken an interest in anything new. I've always had some minor interest in fairy tales and mythology, and it's not like I've taken any serious interest in geology, and I've done translations and FFs for other things...

6. 一番好きなキャラは?
レイヴン! (笑

Who is your favourite character?
Raven! *laughs*

7. その人のどこが好きですか?
全然悪気がなくても(エドガーに)突っ込みを入れるところ!

What do you like about that character?
How he unintentionally takes digs at people (Edgar).

8. 身近な人物だったとしたら、どういう位置に欲しいですか?(恋人、家族など)
?!?うんん。。。家族なら ちょっと良くない歳で出来た息子になるかな?あはは!それとも従兄弟とか甥かな? (それとも、歳を無視して弟とか?)

If said character were to be someone close to you, what sort of relationship would you want? (SO, family...)
?!? Umm... if he were family, you mean something like having a son at a bit early an age?! ^^; Maybe a cousin or nephew? (Or younger brother if you ignore the age issue!)

9. 二番目に好きなキャラは?
うん。。。誰かな。。。?ケルピー?いや、エドガーかもね~。

Who is your second favourite character?
Umm... I wonder...? Kelpie? No, maybe Edgar...

10. その人のどこが好きですか?
仲間思いとどんなことがあってもその場を和らげる能力。そして、リディアのことになるととんでもないへたれぶりも良いですね~。

What do you like about that character?
His loyalty to his friends and his ability to make light of the worst of situations. That and his inability to do anything right when it comes to Lydia.

11. どういう位置に欲しいですか?
。。。。。。あまり関係ほしくないと思うね。。。 あったら、どうしようもないような遠縁?ま、従兄弟くらいは良いかな?

What sort of relationship would you want with that character?
......I don't think I really want much of a relationship with him... If I were, perhaps some distant relationship? Well, perhaps somewhere around a cousin would be okay.

12. 主要キャラ(エドガー、リディア、レイヴン、ニコ、ケルピー、アーミン)以外でお気に入りのキャラはいますか?
カルトン教授かなり好きよね~

Do you have a non-major (other than Edgar, Lydia, Raven, Nico, Kelpie, Ermine) favourite character?
I kind of like Prof. Carlton~.

13. その人のどこが好きですか?
普通じゃないからかな?(ケルピー意見。 笑) ま、そんな好きなものしか頭がないところよく分かるね。そして、見てないように見えるが本当はかなり見てるところ。

What do you like about that character?
As Kelpie put it, because he's not normal maybe? Well, I sort of understand what it's like to think of nothing but what you're interested in... :P That and despite not seeming to be paying attention to the world around him, he's quite astute at reading situations and people.

14. どういう位置に欲しいですか?
うん。。。夫としてはちょっとよくないかな。ま、彼はそんなこと全然望まないと思うし。となると、男友達。。。??あじゃ。。。

What sort of relationship would you want with that character?
Hmm... I don't know if he'd make a great husband. Well, I doubt he'd even want to re-marry either. In which case, maybe as a guy friend...?? Oh dear...

15. 自分に一番近いと思うキャラは?
。。。。。。誰もいないと思います。あるとしたら。。。ポール?

Which character are you most akin to?
......I don't think any of them. If any... maybe Paul??

16. どういうところが似ていると思いますか?
間抜けのところ?あはは!

In what aspect are you similar?
Cluelessness? *laughs*

17. 友達にしたいキャラは?
エドガー。絶対敵に回したくないから。うん。。。本当はロタかな?結構頼りそうだし、友達思い出し、いい人だと思います。エドガーと対立するところも良いですね~。

Which character would you want as a friend?
Edgar. Because I definitely don't want him as an enemy. :P Hmm... truth would probably be Lota? She's quite reliable, thinks about her friends, and seems to be a good person all round. The way she stands up to Edgar is also something I really like. ^^;

18. 兄弟姉妹にしたいキャラは?
リディアとレイヴン。そして、ロタも良いかも知らない。ただ、ちょっとやばい姉妹になりそう。 (汗

Which character would you want as family?
Lydia and Raven. And maybe Lota. ...Although she might be a bit of a black sheep. ^^;

19. 恋人にしたいキャラは?
?!特にないと思います。。。

Who would you want as a SO?
?! No one, I don't think...

20. 結婚したいキャラは?
あはは!それこそないですね~!

Which character would you marry?
Ahaha! None!

21. 好きな妖精は?(『伯爵と妖精』に出てこないものでもかまいません)
所々好きな女神とかがあったような気がしますが、今はもう別にそこまで興味を持ってないね。。。

What's your favourite fairy? (doesn't have to be in 'Hakushaku to Yousei')
I feel like I had a number of goddesses and such that I used to like, but these days, I'm not so interested in mythology etc to that extent anymore.

22. 好きな鉱物は?
うん。。。宝石以外になるとアメジストか赤鉄鉱。ローズ水晶も良いですね。

What's your favourite stone?
Umm... outside of precious stones, amethyst and maybe hematite? Ah, rose quartz is nice, too.

23. エドガーに口説かれたいですか?
うええ。。。 絶対嫌。あの口説き文句かなり鍛えるね。

Would you want to be hit upon by Edgar?
Gag. Absolutely not. His sweet-talking can be pretty hard to take.

24. エドガーは、いつからリディアのことが好きになったと思いますか?
興味を持ち始めたのはあのあばら家の時からかな。。。?それとリディアがいつも彼を突っぱねることで挑発的に口説き落としたがったかな。。。?

When do you think Edgar started to fall in love with Lydia?
I think he started taking an interest in her at the abandoned house maybe...? That and Lydia's constant rejection of him probably spurred him into wanting to making her his.

25. エドガーがもし誘拐されず、公爵家の跡継ぎとして普通に成長してリディアに出会ったとしても、やはり彼女に恋をしたでしょうか?
うん。。。どうでしょうね。。。?ある意味無理があるでしょう。彼自身も別に政略結婚を反対していなかったところもあるから、もともとそっちにいった可能性は高いと思います。ただ、もし、妖精的なトラブルがあって彼女とと出会ったら。。。うん。。。どうでしょうね。。。

If Edgar hadn't been kidnapped and grew up normally as the heir to the dukedom, do you think he would still have fallen in love with Lydia if they ended up meeting?
Hmm... I wonder...? In some ways, I think it's improbable. He himself didn't seem to have any issues with political unions, so I suspect he would've ended up marrying for that reason. If however, they ended up meeting because of some fey issue... Hmm... I wonder...

26. エドガーは、リディアと結婚したら浮気をしなくなるでしょうか?
多分しない。ただ、彼が思ってる「浮気」とリディアが思ってるのが一致してるかどうか。。。(笑

Do you think Edgar would stop seducing other women if he married Lydia?
Most likely he would. However, there might be an issue of what he considers cheating and what Lydia sees as cheating. ^^;

27. リディアにラブレターを出した男の子、本当はリディアのことが好きだった?
?3巻のあれ?うん、多分違う。。。。。。ちょっとまって、あれを書いたのはアンデイーではないよね?アンデイーなら本当は好きだったかな?でも、あれ、指図したのはアンデイーじゃなかったっけ?

Do you think the boy who wrote the love letter for Lydia was really in love with her?
? You mean that bit in vol 3? Hmm... most likely not...... Wait, Andy's not the one who wrote that, is he? If it were Andy, I suspect he really does/did like her, but I think he's the one who prompted its writing... wasn't he?

28. リディアがエドガーと出会わなくて、フェアリードクターの仕事がなかったら、何をしているでしょう?
うん。。。スコットランドで暮らしてラングリーと結婚。。。?いや、違う。アンディーに告白されるけど断る。そして、いつかケルピーと妖精界へ行ってしまう。

If Lydia didn't meet Edgar and didn't work as a fairy doctor, what do you think she would do?
Hmm... lived in Scotland and eventually married Langley...? No, probably not. Andy would've confessed how he felt about her only to be rejected and she'd eventually go with Kelpie and live in Faerie maybe.

29. エドガーの女好きとリディアのお人好し、どっちがたちが悪いと思いますか?
。。。。。。リディアのお人よしかな?エドガーのほうはそれをリディアに向ければ、ま、彼女は大変かも知りませんがそれで終り。でも、彼女のばい 誰でもああだから いつもエドガーだけではなく 皆なかなか大変そう。(笑

Which is worse, Edgar's womanizing or Lydia's extreme kindness?
......Lydia's kindness maybe? If Edgar's attentions are directed solely at Lydia, while things would be hard for her, that's where that would end. But in her case, she's that way towards everyone so not only would things be rough for Edgar but for everyone else, too. *laughs*

30. あなたはエドガー×リディア派ですか?
もちろん~

Are you Edgar x Lydia?
Of course~!

31. 実は、ケルピー×リディアでもいいんじゃないかと思っている。
あ、それも良いですね~

Actually, you're also Kelpie x Lydia.
Ah, that's okay too~.

32. エドガーは、ヒーローでしょうか?
。。。。。。あれはヒーローと言えるんですか?!

Would you consider Edgar a hero?
......Can you call that a hero?!

33. レイヴン(とアーミン)はどこの国の生まれだと思いますか?
知る前インドかと思いましたが今は何処か知ってます。

Where do you think Raven (and Ermine) were born?
Before I found out, I thought they might be from India, but I know where they're from now.

34. 一番好きな巻は?
うん。。。結構色々好きよね。。。ま、11巻かな?それとも6?9。。。?

What's your favourite volume?
Umm... I kinda like a lot of them, but... maybe vol 11? or maybe 6? 9...?

35. 一番好きな短編は?
うええ。。。また、一番ですか?色々短編も好きよね。「恋占いをお望みどおり」あの頃のストーリかなりすきからね。それに、蛇のことも最後の落ちも好きよね~。

What's your favourite short story?
Yikes! Favourite again?! I like a number of the short stories, too. 'Koi uranai wo o-nozomi doori' I like the stories from that point. Not to mention I liked the snake and the end to the story, too.

36. 一番好きな場面は?
また、色々。(笑 でも、多分7巻のあのシーン。マナーン島のあれ。エドガーが夜這いしないようにリディアが部屋のドアーをバリケードしたので 翌朝それを片付けようとしたときエドガーが手伝うように申し出るあれ。

それとレイヴンのあれ。15巻の「リボンは勝負のドレスコード」で、レイヴンは一晩カルトン家に居座ってリディアのガードをして、翌朝朝食を取ってるシーン。レイヴンの思いがけない台詞とリディアの動揺っぷり。そして、レイヴンの少し焦ったフォローと最後にニコの冷た~い「もう黙ってていいよ」。レイヴンって本当に思いがけないことを言ってくれるね~!

What's your favourite scene?
Again, lots. *laughs* But probably that scene from volume 7--the one on Manaan Island. Lydia barricades her door to ensure Edgar doesn't try sneaking in her room late at night, only to have Edgar offer to help her when she goes to clean things up the next morning.

That and Raven's brilliance in that scene in vol 15's "Ribbons are the Dress Code for a Duel". The scene the morning after Raven spends the night guarding Lydia at her home when they're having breakfast. That completely unexpected comment by Raven and Lydia's utter shock. Then Raven's anxious follow-up with Nico's really cold "You can shut up now". Raven really does say some of the most unexpected things~!

37. 一番好きな台詞は?
うわあ。。。色々ありますね~。でも、一番は多分レイヴンの 「エドガーさま、自業自得ですね。  あっ、。。。。。。自暴自棄でした。」 それと6巻のエドガーの台詞。「もしも孔雀がきみの前で求愛の羽を広げたりしたら、僕なら撃ち殺すね。」

What's your favourite line?
Ermm... lots and lots again~. But, my favourite is probably Raven's "It serves you right, my lord. Aa. ......I meant it's your most desperate hour." That and Edgar's line in vol. 6. "If a peacock were to spread its mating feathers before you, I would shoot it dead."

38. 一番好きな表紙のイラストは?
多分17巻に当たるイラストかな?(はっきり分からないがコバルトサロン30号に載せてるイラスト)

What's your favourite cover illustration?
Probably what will be on the cover of volume 17. (Not entirely sure, but it's the illustration on Vol 30 of the Cobalt Salon newsletters.)

39. 一番好きな挿絵は?
12巻。エドガー、リディア、とティルの三人家族みたいな絵。

What's your favourite book illustration?
Vol 12.The picture of Edgar, Lydia, and Tel together looking like a family.

40. ヴィクトリア朝時代に生まれてみたかったですか?
特にそうじゃないですね。あの時代、女性はかなり大変だと思います。人間扱いはそこそこ欠けていた時ですし。

Do you wish you could've been born during the Victorian era?
Not particularly. I think it was still a difficult period for women then and they weren't entirely seen as people at that time.

41. 当時のイギリスは、階級によって環境や生活習慣がまるで違いましたが、生まれるならどの階級が良いですか?
うん。。。あの時代ならかなり裕福な中流上か普通の上流階級かな?でも、あの時代。。。うん。。。

How one lived in Britain at that time was very different depending on which class you were born into. If you were born in that era, which class would you have wanted to be born into?
Hmm... given the period, probably a quite well to do upper-middle class or a normal upper class family? But that period... hmm...

42. もし、ヴィクトリア朝の英国にタイムスリップしたら、何をしたいですか?
うん。。。別に舞踏会に興味ないけどちょっとだけあの時代のドレスに興味あるね~。凄く動きにくそうけどね~。

If you time-slipped to the Victorian era, what would you want to do?
Umm... Not that I have much interest in balls and such, but I wouldn't mind trying the dresses of the time. Although they'd probably be very difficult to move in... ^^;

43. ヴィクトリア朝を舞台にした小説、漫画、映画などで、好きなものはありますか? あればそのタイトルなどを教えてください。
エマ結構好きでしたが、もっと好きな小説はそのちょっと前のものかな?

Are there any novels, manga, movies, etc. that you like that take place in the Victorian era? If so, which ones?
I liked Emma (manga) a fair amount, but my fave novel is a bit before that time I think.

44. 妖精の出てくる話や絵本などで、好きなものはありますか? あればそのタイトルを。
色々あります。誰だっけ?Tom DeitzとかPiers Anthonyが書いた小説好きだったし いちいちタイトルを覚えてない。

Do you have any favourite stories or picture books etc. where fairies are portrayed? Which ones?
Various things. Who was it? I used to like Tom Deitz's and Piers Anthony's novels, but I really don't remember the various titles of all the stories I like.

45. ロンドン(又はイギリス)というと、何を思い浮かべますか?
ロンドンならタワーか博物館とかそんなものかな?イギリスならま、紅茶とか、Stonehengeとか、城も良いね~。

What do you think of when you think of London (or England)?
London, I think of things like the Tower of London, or the British Museum, that sort of thing. England would be tea, Stonehenge... and castles are good, too.

46. スコットランドというと、何を思い浮かべますか?
高原?それとロックネス?

What do you think of when you think of Scotland?
The highlands? That and Loch Ness? (I guess there are tartans, but I ran into those first in Nova Scotia so... :P )

47. 谷先生の本を、『伯爵と妖精』以外に何か読みましたか?
今のところ何も。

Have you read any of Tani-sensei's books other than 'Hakushaku to Yousei'?
Nothing so far.

48. 『活字倶楽部』の谷先生のインタビューは読みましたか? 読まれた方は、感想を一言。
??読んでない。読みたいね~。

Have you read Tani-sensei's interview in 『活字倶楽部』? If you did, please comment on what you thought.
?? I've never read it. I would like to though...

49. 谷先生と高星先生が『伯爵と妖精』のサイドブックを出されるとしたら、どういう内容がいいですか?
え?ファンブックとかそういうもの?それともイラスト集とか?私的なら、もっと短編を読みたいね~。すっごく楽しいから~。サイドブックなら伯妖的鉱物集とか?

If Tani-sensei and Takaboshi-sensei were to publish a 'Hakushaku to Yousei' side book, what would you want in it?
? Like the fanbook that was recently released? Or perhaps something else like an illustration collection. Personally, I want more side stories; those are lots of fun. ^^; Hmm... maybe a HakuYou book of gemstones or something. ^^;

50. お疲れ様でした。最後にひとことどうぞ。
うん。。。かなり時間がかかってしまいました。第17巻お楽しみにしてます。結婚式はどうなるか、エドガーかなり我慢してきたな~。(笑

And at the end, a final word...
Umm... this took quite a long time. I'm looking forward to vol 17. How's the wedding going to go; poor Edgar's had to restrain himself so much up until now... *laughs*


Whoops! I'm supposed to work on some naughty stuffs tonight! >.<;;

that meme is also great for studying Japanese *eyes twitch and turn at the kanji*

I like Raven too ! More so than Edgar (I don't generally care for blonde male leads...dunno what it is lol>..<)


umm so the naughty stuff is that for me?? :P

*laughs* Anything that helps build reading. ^^;

Raven is absolutely hilarious and he has *so* many good lines in that series. ^^;; Edgar... I'm not even sure he really qualifies as a fave or not. He's a funny one that way. ^^; I definitely like a number of the supporting charas for this series; Lota especially. ^o^

*laughs* 'Tis indeed. I have to watch things because I have a tendency to miss translating sfx. ^^;

Okay, now that's just cruel. You tell us there's this great comment by Raven. But you don't tell us what he said. You realize now that you're morally obligated to provide summaries, etc., up through vol 15 in order to tell us what this great comment is. ;)

Edgar's line in vol. 6. "If a peacock were to spread its mating feathers before you, I would shoot it dead."
Edgar has so many great lines. But that one is one the best I've heard so far. :D

How about my telling you what Raven said... "Whether there are ribbons on it or not, I think it's all the same once you take it off." :P

*snort* Yes, Raven, you're right. It's all the same once you take it off. But most people in Victorian England wouldn't express it that way. (Most people today wouldn't express it that way, for that matter.) Poor Lydia, her ears must have been burning along with her cheeks. LOL I've said it before and I'll say it again. Raven is a trip and a half. :D

Posted at: January 28th, 2009 08:01 pm (UTC)

Poor Lydia froze on the spot with her tea cup still in hand. ^^; It's bad enough that she's so innocent, but what a response to get in reply to her asking "In any case, dueling doesn't make sense. Raven, don't you agree that insisting on such things is foolish?" ^^;; Lydia... you needed to be more specific on what you were seeking agreement on. ^^;;

pfft. Lydia and Raven should have more conversations together. There's a fundamental disconnect there that's positively hilarious to the outside listener. :D

Posted by: Shadow (kagedreams)
Posted at: January 29th, 2009 12:05 am (UTC)

*laughs* It's not so much a Lydia and Raven thing so much as it's a Raven thing. Ah, he's a funny one. ^^;;

hty_kiss

True. But Raven needs someone around him in order to make him speak. (I highly doubt he talks to himself.) And Lydia's reactions to his comments are far funnier than Edgar's.
