At long last... an update!

My apologies... this took far longer than I wanted it to take. And the worst part is that I'm not really sure why... my free time was just over before I knew what happened and left me with a feeling of not having accomplished anything special.

But anyway... the new chapter can be found at:

http://www.gundamwingtales.com/novel3/chapter2_part2_3.html

Here there are quite a bit of deviations from the television series. The whole scene of Heero meeting with Wufei (after the latter has been arrested too) is quite different, and the dialogue is changed too. Heero saying that OZ thinks them to be crazy is left out. And this is not the first time something like this is left out... I'm starting to believe that any references to the Gundam pilots being crazy have been added at a very late stage.

Also the fight between Sally's men and the OZ forces has been left out. Which is understandable since it doesn't really contribute anything to the plot.

I hope I can pull myself together a bit better in the future and that the next chapter won't take that long. On the other hand, the busiest time of the year comes up at work in January and February. So a tentative prediction would be end of February. Hopefully sooner...

Oh yes, beta reader comments are outstanding.

Thanks for reading and for your patience!

Thank you very much for letting me know. I always enjoy it when somebody reads what I translate. :-)

And I'm dreadfully behind schedule again... *sigh*. But I got sidetracked and I'm translating an interview with the Gundam Wing creators. I think I will put this up here as well. :-)

Thanks again!

I'm so excited to see someone translating this!! Thanks so much for doing this! Would you mind if I plugged your site over at the 1xr comm? I know there are many members there who would be interested in reading your translations :D

Thanks for reading the translation - I'm always happy to know people do so. :)

Oh yes, no problem, do put up the link. And I will try to update sometime soon. No, I haven't abandoned the site, I was just super busy recently with real life.

Thanks for the patience!

I await you next update with the translations~

I do have a question though. Do you think, if you have the chance to, you would want to translate the new upcoming Gundam Wing novel?

Hi there

Thanks for the comment. I do intend to finish this, although when and how long it's going to take... no idea. I just have too many hobbies and not enough time ^^;;

Interesting! I didn't know they were planning a new novel! This would definitely be in scope, provided I can get my hands on it! But I'm not sure how long it would be taking. :(

not sure if you still check this journal, but if do, could you confirm whether or not the gundam pilots resolve to go to mars as they find they cannot find peace within themselves??? and continue to look for battle now on mars.
