Those Six Nights

Translator’s Notes:

  •  I’m actually quite worried about this one. I had my friends check this one and they didn’t quite get what happened. As a [newbie] translator, I fear that I may have failed in conveying what they wanted to say. There’s this gap between Japanese and English that I couldn’t quite bridge given what little space we had to work with.
  • In one of my previous posts, I mistakenly took the first phrase in this doujin as the title. I initially thought this was entitled “Premonition” when it was, in fact, “Rokutousei no Yoru” or Those Six Nights. It was a good thing I stared long and hard at the pixiv page.
  • ‘The night is long that never finds the day’ is from Act IV, Scene 3. It was spoken by Malcolm.





if you dont have me on facebook you are probably not missing out on any posts but the comment section is important too lmao

I went to the Renaissance faire dressed as a warrior.  I had a real sword with me, too.  I was standing (in character) next to a sword-fighting ring, where kids of all ages got the chance to pick up a sword and challenge the champion.  Some woman walks by, with her little girl.  The girl starts walking towards the ring, saying she wants to fight.  But the mom pulled her away hella sharply, and was like, “That’s for boys.”  You don’t want to be a BOY, do you?”    And the girl looked around and saw me.  I think she thought I was a boy; I had my hair in a ponytail, and was wearing a hood.  So she comes up to me and asks me, “Do you think girls can be fighters, too?”  And her mom looks like she’s silently gloating.  Like she thinks I’m going to say no.  So I take off my hood, untie my hair so that it flows freely, and kneel before her.  And I’m like, “Milady, anyone can be a fighter.”  I swear, the look on that mother’s face made my day.
