Fortifying my spirit under a waterfall by Armaell

-> The important part is the last paragraph

No updates since I'm in vacations, at the mountains with ... no network... can't even send a damn sms to my gf without walking for at least 10min !
Well, at least it's relaxing.

When I'll be back, it will be time for doing Transcendence? and trying to correct a little Until Death? which was my first work. apparently there is some problems but I don't know how much time it will take me. I'll probably have to redo it ...

In another side, I'm reading a chinese fiction, the third time I try, and I feel for the first time I'll won't drop it in the middle ! Yatta ! (pardon me the japanese here)
It's "A Step Into the Past", I have just a little problem with how women are depicted, and don't know if I hope it's not a fantasy of the author that they behave like that, or the author know what he is talking and isn't writing his lust-dream.

With all that, some are asking me : Where are the epub/pdf for chinese fiction !? True that there is a section already reserved, but it's empty !
Actually I didn't read a lot of them (and as said, I dropped them all each time).
So now, I'm asking you : which chinese fiction would be good ?
Give me proposition in the comment or by mail. I'm searching at least a completed and a not completed, with no epub file (or a terrible one)
I'll choose after ;)

The New Gate V01-2 by Armaell

This project was on my section [On the pipes] since probably the start of my website ! I was waiting for Shin to end the second volume to do a double release in place of a lone one.... Well the wait was long, and I received enough to be counted of "When do you do it ?"

And here it is !

I don't have quite a lot to say on it, apart it's a relaxing story.
Oh ! Maybe I fear a little the side on which it's going : We have three girls around a only MC.. Too much to my style, I fear the harem. But since it have Romance tag, and not Harem tag. I still have good expectations.

Aside, I'm going on a vacation, then some work needs to be done that I postponed quite a bit. So probably no releases for some time.
Add adding that what I still have in my pipes is only loooong projects (Hello Transcendence?). So, releases ? Not soon. Enjoy the end of your summer ! Stop reading, get out !

Sayonara Piano Sonata Complete by Armaell

Hi back everyone !
I'm definitely always happy to see peoples sending me mails, for anything, be it "Hey, can you do that ?", "I read this, Can you say me more", or "there is a problem here".
Anything, because it those beautiful numbers by which I see you, like "number of total visitors, number of download by series, google keyword used" says me : "Hey, your website is used". Those mail say me more : "Your work is appreciated enough that peoples are willing to take their time for me too".

Now, take the point that in the last mail I received :

will look forward what you bring next. ;)

Thank you for this support and belief ! Now, how do I choose ? First are the series I liked too much to let them without epub/pdf, the reason I started. like Until Death?, Overlord, or Mushoku Tensei Others are the popular one, often asked. Some are Mother of Learning or Age of Heroes. And the last part is : the little gems I find.

Sayonara Piano Sonata, never heard of it before falling on it while browsing translator blogs to translator blogs. It looked cute, it was short and completed, and also bring a under-represented genre in my library. Which is school-life-romance ! There is also the music part, a little hard in a book I suppose, but the translator did an awesome work by trying to find all the musics and giving us direct links to youtube. Take your time to enjoy it with music in the background !

Mother of Learning V01 by Armaell

Well, you did seen nothing, but I just get out of a lot of technical problems. Like it took me two days to generate the pdf file after everything was done. Simply because my computer didn't wanted to open the folder were it was ... On the same time, the website was "virtually" down. It was in fact frozen, the cache didn't wanted to refresh, or being removed. So I couldn't do anthing since whatever I was doing, what was displayed never changed ... Good mess.

But at least I have a good news ! After being asked, I asked the author if I could do it, and now I have done Mother of Learning by nobody103 ! (sadly, no answer from the illustrator who did .. well illustrations. So no pictures in this version. Maybe later) And what can I say about it ? Mmmmh, like it was actually in my "To Read List". And while I was doing the epub file, we could say I got caught in.. Love the story !

The author need to be praised to be able to do this ; I believe, really hard exercise. Were it's really easy to end up boring the reader. But no, it's an incredible story.
Even the way things are told on the school life make me think : That's how Harry Potter should have been.
Yes Yes, nobody103, I'm comparing you to a world best-seller.

And to end this comment. One thing I think it's the proof of what differentiate thos who write web-fictions and true amateur writers : nobody103 have already a plan, since he said he would do 3 arcs. It means he know where he is going.

Have fun reading it, Even more if you never did !

Mushoku Tensei Complete and my way of work by Armaell

Mushoku Tensei, I know there have already be done as epub, and as pdf who is more often done. I even have a visitor who contacted me to propose his work and I thank him to do so.
None of them was of a quality I would judge correct by my standards.

Why ?
Simply there is 25 volumes, and often those who do those files are too lazy and just launch a program who do all the work, then upload them.
Not really more.
And what happen ? files with messed chapter titles, with broken presentation, or the presence of part of the website who hosted the text in the epub. Definitely the proof of automated work.

And it don't please me, I loved this serie, and it's part of the reason I started this, to keep them for a long time. Either in the case they aren't published, or I yet to buy them (Spice&Wolf is still waiting me).

So what's different with me ?
Yes, I have also a program to do part of the work, but It's not a magic one, it only prepare the book. When it is done, I still correct all the mistakes he do by checked behind him, chapter by chapter. Delete artifacts, enhance the presentation on need, choose the best placement for illustrations, add decorations, style it, add acknowledgement and so on.
With all that, in place of doing 25 volumes in 5 seconds (time my software do the work), it take me one hour by volume. With 25, it mean I worked (actually a little more, firsts one are always longer) 25 hours on this serie !
It need to be noted.

I also want to note, I don't simply host my files on megaupload or something like that, then forget about them. I keep them all here, with a contact form at finger reach. So if there is any problem (like the BlueFire case) I'm available to correct my work and continue to make it better.

Yes, I'm dedicated, my name is actually on them. (the username, not family name. But I like it)

With that, I didn't talked a lot about Mushoku Tensei... But is it really needed ?
Else, if you didn't read it yet, you should.

Ho yeah, apart I'm really tired of the japanese's loli obsession, so I try to forget Roxi is a way to insert loli in this story. Yeah, she is just a magician, like any.
