Ep 12 draft

June 26th, 2006 (02:51 am)
tired

current mood: tired

Quick note that the draft for this ep is now up. It took a lot longer than expected and I wasn't too careful on my last read through, so if there's any weirdness, let me know. Otherwise... Ryuuki really knows how to stick his foot in his mouth! ^^;;


I finally did my first heel! ^___^ I have another to do tomorrow... >_<;; Those p3tog tbl are a royal pain! That and that last wrapped stitch... But it looks pretty good (although I'm sure I slipped some of my stitches back wrong. I'm so used to slipping stitches knit-wise rather than purl-wise. Eek.

The female sibling unit is making good progress on the Mermaid jacket apparently. She ran into some trouble with the first gusset but after dithering over things she finally took the plunge and just followed the instructions and it worked. ^^;; Every now and again, there's a pattern out there where you just have to hang your brain out the window... There's talk about hunting down some different yarn for her to do another Mermaid later including the possibility of 100% silk, alpaca, wool, and I even suggested cashmere. :P She's thinking about doing a pure black jacket. I'm a bit concerned that she might be making things too small, but I'm not sure. I've heard comments that the sleeves are too long, so she's not sure how to adjust for that yet (have to reduce the number of stitches as the sleeves are apparently done length-wise).



Hmm... I'm not sure if we're going to get a certain scene next episode or not. If we do, it'll add an interesting tidbit of information for viewers. If not... *shrug* It's a tiny scene of little importance generally, but...

Otherwise... ummm, yeah. I'm pretty behind on keeping up with the edits and replying to some comments. ^^; Anyhow, bedtime.

Football!!

Congratulations on the heel! (I'm not very sure what it is, but it sounds hard). I think it's so awesome that you knit, and you make such gorgeous things. I'll be looking forward to pics of your new project.

I better hurry and catch up with the first episodes of Sainkoku so I can read your latest translation :-) Thanks so much for all the work you put in translating :-) *is excited*

*laughs* I'm working on my first pair of socks and knitting the heel takes a bit of work since the entire sock sort of "turns" at that point. Socks are very addictive I think. I'm already plotting another 2+ pairs. ^^;

I'm so sorry it took me so long to reply... you may have finished the socks already! How long does it take you to finish them? What do they look like? What colors are you using? Good luck with your projects :-)

*tugs sleeve* But I can't find a torrent! (And l33traws doesn't have it listed.) *wail*

*sad eyes*

Congrats on the heel. The first time I did one was very intimidating, but then I got the hang of it. ^_^

Pretty pretty mermaid. O.O

It's not at l33t-raws yet, but there is a high resolution version out (about 430MB) from Eien-ACG.

Make your own rules

Ah! Thank you! I hate the patience, yes I do.

^_^ Thankfully the FSU talked me through the heel so it was pretty easy to do (although fiddly), and I did the other heel today. I'm hoping to get to the toe shaping in another day or so. Yay! ^__^

Care & Feeding (gleefulfreak)

So, I just went to read your translation (finally got the ep to dl), and I saw your changes. Ooooh, translator's notes! *click* EeeeeeeeEEEEEeeee!!!! You kept my exclamation point! *^_^*

I was wondering if koukihi was kou as in her family name.

Thanks again for all your work on this. ^_^

Oh! When it comes to grafting, you might want to check out the video on knittinghelp.com (unless FSU talks you through it). That explained something that had been complicated and made it simple & easy.

Thanks for that note on grafting. I'm planning on doing a slip-stitch patterned sock next and I believe that one does have gusset heels. ^___^

Congrats on the heel! I can't sew buttons on without causing laughter, so I admire anyone with this sort of dexterity! :)

And thank you, as always, for the fine translation. It is extremely appreciated!

Last year, we had a bear-like person stay suddenly, so we're used to unexpected guests. - *uncontrollable guffawing*

It was an interesting episode, though I felt it was a bit rushed. I don't think we had time to get used to Eigetsu being around, and then all sorts of things happen. Should be interesting to see who Eigetsu is, why everyone's coming after him and even why Shuuei helped him though.

Sainkoku is terrible about its flashbacks to secret groups hidden in shadow. It's usually easy to know whose face isn't being shown. Kochou is quite the character. I wonder what her relation to Shuuei is, apart from the possible obvious, and especially what her role is in underworld terms. Ryuuki is so good at making a mess, it hurts. Especially since he pretty much announced his identity to all and sundry at that point. ;)

Dexterity... *laughs* You should've seen me back when I was working on the ribbing. It looked like I was fighting with an unruly porcupine again. I'll get DPNs down some century. ^^;;

While I realise this is really another side story, likewise, I felt it to be really rushed. Although, perhaps thanks to that, we didn't lose out too much from what was in the book. We missed parts of / a couple of scenes as well as some tidbits of information here and there. As to why Shuuei helped Eigetsu... that was pretty much revealed in the missing scenes, but will likely be revealed in the next ep as well. ^^;;

As for the rest, it will all be revealed next ep? sometime in story 3? Somewhere there. ^_^

I do hope they get back to the main story soon. I get that they might want to stretch the material as far as they can, but they'll lose momentum if this goes on. :/

This sounds like a photo op! :)

BTW, I'm sorry about taking so long on the file you sent me--the weekend was madly busy. :/ Hoping to get some or all of it done today, though!

No worries on it. ^_^ I'm definitely the bottleneck when it comes to getting the final edits put in and up. >_<;; Have fun with that story! I found it really cute. ^___^

Thanks Shadow for the quick ep 12 translation ^-^ So many characters being introduced am having a hard time keeping up ^^;;

Somehow I get the feeling its RyuukiXShuurei in the end although I like Seiran a lot p_p

saiunkoku silhouette (safetygirl0)

I like Seiran a lot, too. But not for Shuurei. She grew up with him. She looks on him as an older brother (at least, that's the impression that I get). They're far too close to be romantic. It makes me twitchy.

That said, he is indeed a great character.

And I have to like Ryuuki for Shuurei, because he's voiced by Seki Tomokazu. ^_^

sorachi sensei

i still have to read the last two ep translations. *sighs* between World Cup and doing this freelance project in the city...i am soo behind.

Congratulations on the gusset.

YOu know, i just realised, that my FSU, younger, is also a crafter, like yours. THough, she is more into crocheting. I want to get her to cross-over to the knitting side. Btw, the baby sweater is almost done. one sleeve and a collar left to do. Will put up pics! ^____^

Wow! You're making speedy progress! Looking forward to the photos. ^__^

smexy smirk

I seriously think that the tension of watching the world cup is causing me to knit faster....and watching my j-doramas.

speaking of which...you have GOT to see Satomi Hakkenden. it is sooo brill!! ^____^
