Finally decided to take the time and read the Adonis novels (one of my favorite webtoons ever and also the webtoon that got me really, really hooked on webtoons in general). It’s a slow read, because I don’t have nearly as much free time as I used to, but it’s glorious.
I’m low-key considering picking Adonis up as a secondary project after I’m done with The Daybreak. The only things that make me nervous is that it’s like 11 volumes (600+ chapters! Oof)… And also that so many of the comments I’ve seen for the series on Tapas are a bunch of entitled little pricks complaining about the fact that the series went on (and is currently on) a few hiatuses. And I really don’t want to have to deal with people like that.
To be completely honest, entitled pricks are probably the dealbreaker as for why I’ve decided to never pick up Light and Shadow for good. (There are other, bigger reasons too –namely the fact that there’s so much smut in the novel and, while I have nothing against reading smut, having to sit there and translate pages and pages of smut was probably one of the most tedious things I’ve ever suffered myself to do. Like, I can only write about how Eli and Edna had sex so many freaking times before my brain rots and I want to throw my laptop at a wall…) And if you think I’m being petty for letting that one commenter be the straw that broke the camel’s back on my decision not to translate Light and Shadow, then yeah, I’m petty. So what of it? I’ve never understood what it is about shoving their entitlement issues at someone else’s face that makes people think it’s a good way to persuade others into doing something; and frankly, I don’t want to understand either.
This is my unofficial, official determination that Rainy Translations will never be picking up Light and Shadow. I also will not be releasing the 10-ish chapters I have on file that I’ve already translated because I can already see the comments I’m going to get from the aforementioned entitled pricks, and I’m not going to deal with that.
But anyway, back to my original point…
Adonis is soo good and I’m just…ahhhhhh >~<
