  1. Hi Hamster428, I have a question regarding the ancient arts feature in many translation projects. Do you know where they are from? Are there artists for that type of ancient arts? Or are they fan arts?


  2. Hey hamster! I’ve been a lurker for a long time on your amazing site *happy dances* I really admire your dedication to all your novels ^-^ and I love your translations!

    I’m a relatively new translator, and I was wondering how I could get the contact infos of the authors I want to get consent from? I’ve also been facing the situation of people stealing translations too >_< and I was wondering what methods you use to combat this, personally?

    Thanks hamster!
    ~From a newbie translator ^-^


    • Hi! Nice to meet you.
      Hoju helped to contact the authors through weibo for me. If you have a weibo account, you most likely can find your authors there.
      The most I’ve done is get a domain and register it with google 😓 then I can file DMCA against the websites that steal from me. This will get their pages off of the search results. I also track within google for keywords. So if any new pages are created with those words or paragraphs I will be notified. It’s tedious but I’m not tech savvy enough to play with other encryption methods, esp if it will make life harder for readers, and also there are those who use my translations to translate into other languages, I want them to still be able to cut and paste for their convenience.

      • Thank you so much hamster! I managed to contact one of my authors so far, with another one left to go! ^-^

        The DMCA technique sounds excellent (as another non-tech savvy person. Lol.) For some reason, it seems to cost money though…? Hmm I will have to look more into it when I have time. Thanks for everything hamster and I will no longer be a lurker out of many! 🙂


        • You’re welcome! Registering with google shouldn’t cost anything. But if you have a free WordPress account, you’ll need to buy a domain name to add google’s DNS, which verifies that you indeed own your blog. The feature isn’t available for a free account.
          You can file the same claim through Bing and Yahoo who don’t really verify your ownership but the search giant is Google so it’s more important to get results off of their searches. Try to get both chapters and index pages off. I was lazy and didn’t go back to file against the index page that contains chapter links… but yeah…
          Lmk if you run into any troubles. It was super tedious and I was near tearing my hair out.


          • Thanks hamster! Sorry for the late reply! I’ve been occupied with finals recently T_T but I will definitely let you know if I have any issues! I haven’t looked into it completely yet, but I’ll contact you in a week, when I’m freed up to check it out! 😀


  3. umm…hamster…. recently i saw the manhua ten miles of peach blossom and i was hooked and i was thrilled to know that there is a novel version of it and it came to my knowledge that you have completed the translation of the book and it was taken down so i was wondering…..if you still have the translations could you please send the pdf files to my gmail? i have no plans to distribute it or something i just want to read. i was totally curious when i saw the manhua version so i humbly request your consent.

    if you do happen to accept my request here is my gmail: adeljaime02 @gmail.com
    BTW i don’t know where to put this so i just put it in here because it have the least comments and thank you for translating mei gongqing i also love that book.


  4. Hello! I just saw the movie Once Upon A Time, and I loved watching it. So I bought the book To The Sky Kingdom. I read on a review that there were 2 epilogues about Dumpling and Ye Hua. I read the one about Dumpling but I cannot find one from Ye Hua’s pov. Would you plz, plz PLZ tell me where I may find this epilogue? It doesn’t have to be in English (though that would be preferable). I was told you might know where I can find this. I just want to know where I can find it. Is it in a particular special edition of the book?


  5. Hey hamster,

    I’ve been kind of a lurker around your blog, shushengbar, and a few others for sometime. I was looking at some books you posted at the bar and enjoyed Generational Marriage a lot. I decided to use the viet translation to translate it into english.

    I would like to thank you for being the one to introduce me c-novels.

    Wishing you the best.


  6. Hi

    Is it possible if you could email me your translation of 3L3W – 10 miles of peach blossom. I have finished reading the translation of the Pillow Book and would like to read 3L3W?

    My email address is taingaungau@yahoo.com.au.

    Thank you in advance.


  7. Hey Hamster :))) I want to read ten miles of peach blossom and was searching for it for a while then i found on huir3 website that you translated (?) it a long time ago but she said you put it offline. We should ask you for permission to read. I am not sure if i understand that correctly xD. Please answer me :)). Thank you! (^_^)


    • I can recommend you a few. If you’re looking for BL and slow-burning romance, Founder of Diabolism and Scum Villain Self-Saving System and Heaven Official’s Blessing are really great! Written by the same author and I worship her since her plots are so well-developed as well as the characters. But if you’re looking for…ahem, hardcore yaoi and such, I suggest Transmigrating the Mob Character to Rehabilitate the Villain and the Legendary Master’s Wife. I love BL, but lately, I’ve had a hard time finding books that had a balanced relationship. Reason why I love the author of the three books mentioned above, she puts chemistry to everything instead of the seme dominating over the uke. Anyways, use novelupdates.com for some help, and you’ll get a treasure trove of novels. Hope I helped and sorry if the comment was too long, and ciao`~


    • oh gosh, sorry I didn’t see this comment until now. If you somehow see my reply, it’s: I don’t really read BL novels. I have nothing against them and I read a few shounen ai mangas but generally the regular shoujo stuff are plenty to keep me busy so I don’t often need to look elsewhere for my reading fix


  8. Hello, how are you? How do I get a copy of the book translated into English? I can not find it on any website. Do you have a copy? It’s just for my personal reading, could you help me, please?


  9. Hi hamster428! Hope you have been doing well 🙂
    First off, I absolutely loved your translation work with the Pillow Book so much! And with the upcoming drama airing at the end of this year I’ve been re-reading it over and over haha. Reading it on the computer has done a number to my already poor eye-sight so for personal use I’ve been working on reformatting it into a printable book. And I’d figure while I’m at it I’ll go ahead a fix any hidden boo-boos that were left behind. I was wondering if I can contact you about some formatting and translation questions in the Pillow Book? Thanks so much!


  10. Good afternoon, first thanks for translating these two wonderful novels. Second, to ask if I could translate these two novels into Portuguese. And giving credit to the English translator and the hamster website team. Sansheng, and Mei gongqing, of course always giving you credit. Thanks again.
