Stories That I Follow?

Okay, so I haven’t really posted anything but chapters for a while now, but I just wanted to talk about a few things.  Mainly, something that just recently happened: Coiling Dragon has been completely translated!

As far as I know, this is the first xianxia web-novel to be totally translated into English.  At least, it’s the only one that I’ve ever heard of being completely translated lol.

If you want to complain about the ending of CD, go ahead and do it in the comments, because ‘personally’ I was really annoyed by it.  Sure, I wasn’t exactly expecting much, since IET generally tries to skip through anything that isn’t related to training and battles, but at the end, I was still a little surprised.  My exact thoughts were “Really?  Is that really it?  804 chapters, and that’s how you want to end everything?” Well, I won’t say exactly how it ends, but if you go down to the comments, they’ll probably be filled with spoilers rofl.

However, regardless of all that nonsense, I honestly want to thank Ren for not just fully translating one of my favorite Xianxia so far, but also starting up the whole ‘Translated Webnovel’ nonsense!  Sure, he wasn’t the first person to ever translate a webnovel, but if it wasn’t for Ren, the standards would be so much lower than they are right now.

Hell, do you think I would have been able to write nearly 300 chapters in 5 months, if it wasn’t for the outrageous translators out there?  I basically copied the Chinese Webnovel style when I started writing “Hardcore OP-ness”, which is to stay around 1500 words on average and just keep pumping out chapters every single day.

Recently I’ve been burnt out pretty badly and can only write/post 1 per day, but hopefully, I’ll be able to get back up over 2 per day again soon.  However, I’ve written more in the first 4 months of HCOP, than I did over the 10 months I was writing “Immortal Soul” for: That’s including “Questing” btw.  Both of those stories are unfinished, but the total word-count is around 350k+.  “Hardcore OP-ness” is well over 400k and has 277 written chapters at the moment.

Anyway, even though “Coiling Dragon” has been totally translated and I did finish reading it, I’ve decided to keep it permanently on the “Stories That I Follow” page.

I’m sure that very few of you noticed, but I just added a few new Xianxia to the list, though I have been following these for quite some time now.

Earth-Shattering Martial Arts” is pretty awesome, and probably one of my current favorites.

Heavenly Jewel Change” is interesting, but kinda slow-paced; it’s written by the same author who wrote “Doulou Dalu” and “Divine Throne“, so if you like those stories, it’s very similar in many ways :).

Unparalleled Under the Sky” is a VRMMORPG story, which is pretty cool so far, but the TL speed is relatively slow.  Supposedly, it has thousands of chapters?

I haven’t done this in a while, but I’d like to thank all of my Donors and Pledges!  You are the reason that I can keep writing every day 🙂

There have been a lot of new stories being translated and written lately(As there always are), but I haven’t really had time to check them all out, for obvious reasons lol.  Thus, if anyone has a story they would like to recommend, go ahead and put it in the comments of this post or my “Stories That I Follow” page; remember, regardless of how many comments a post or page has, I get emails whenever someone says anything, so don’t withhold your comment, because you think that I won’t even see it :P.

Also, you can recommend TV shows, Movies, Manga, pretty much anything… as long as it won’t cost me money to read or watch lol.  If you wanna recommend a video-game, that’s fine too :).  As long as a game goes on sale for a really cheap price on Steam or is in a Humble Bundle, I might be willing to buy it :P.

  3. Well, supposedly IET’s other works take place in Linmeng’s and the other dude’s little bubbles.

    So I guess they are some kind of sequels.

    Stellar Transformations starts off amazing but dwindles… egh. Hopefully it picks back up

  6. I hated the ending of CD too it was building to a conclusion pretty well then suddenly chapter 804 spouted a bunch of crazy nonsense and stopped. It reminded me of when mangas rushe their endings because they are being axed. A sad end for an amazing novel

    • Yeah, it was fine? Like, I was fine with that whole ridiculous ending, but the very end was annoying. I wanted to see an awesome reunion with Bebe, his mother/father, beirut and everyone else. I mean, that would have been so much more satisfying lol.

    • IET is bad with interpersonal relations… and conversations lol. I like his work, he just kinda skips my favorite parts of stories rofl. I mean, most shows and stories focus way way way~ too much on interpersonal bullshit and annoying, petty relationship issues, but if you completely leave them out of a story, it’s just as bad lol. Also, I think the last line of the last chapter of CD was “….” literally just “….” in quotation marks lol because IET didn’t feel like writing the whole scene with Linley and his family reuniting :(. I really makes me want to write a “Fanfiction” ending for CD, where Linley and his family just reunite, talk for a bit, settle some nonsense, etcetera… but I don’t really have time :(.
