Five types of fans

Five hearts

This post is inspired by all my fans. I’ve learnt a lot from blogging/translating and today I would like to share some of my discoveries and wisdom with you all. 😉

5 types of fans

  1. The silent lurkers

These are the type of fans that never make a single comment, click a single like, or say anything in general. Basically, you don’t even know they exist. They’re just silently supporting you.

  1. The hardcore supporters

These are the type of fans that are extremely passionate about your work. They are relentless, intense, and extremely vocal. They’re the type that will tell everyone about your creation and constantly write encouraging comments to motivate you.

Without hardcore supporters, it is almost impossible for creators to continue.

  1. The generous givers

These are the type of fans that see enough value in your work and are willing to donate or support you on patreon. These fans are extremely rare but are absolutely essential if you want to make a living out of your creation.

Note: Do not underestimate #1 and #2 as they can also be #3.  Continue reading

My translation struggles

Struggles

To my dear readers,

At the beginning of July, I found out that all the advertisements on my site had been disabled because of mature content. I was in shock. Because at the time, I hadn’t translated any explicit sexual scenes yet. Everything was still PG13.

Hence, I emailed wordpress asking which part of my blog/translations was inappropriate. I wanted proof. I felt like I was innocent.

Their response was, “If their ‘crawler robots’ think my site is inappropriate, they will naturally ban all my ads.”

I was so upset.

However, I knew after Chapter 50, my novel was going to go down the dirty path, so I created a new site (theeunuch.com) purely for “The Eunuch is Pregnant”.

I thought they would reactivate my ads after this, and they did unblock my site. However, they sent me a response saying, “I cannot promise when, or if, ads will begin displaying again in the future.”

I was so depressed. What made it worse was when I found out my ad revenue amount for the month of June; I had over 115k views and they gave me $0.88.

I felt like I was scammed. And I felt so helpless. Continue reading

The Eunuch is Pregnant -Chapter 50

To my dear readers,

Sorry for the delay. I have bought a domain called theeunuch.com and it’s no longer hosted on wordpress *although it is powered by wordpress* (don’t ask me what that means lol)! Anyhow, the rest of the translations will be posted on there.

Please visit http://theeunuch.com/ for all future releases of “The Eunuch is Pregnant”!

Note: Chapter 1-49 will remain on this site. I started a patreon to see if any loyal readers would be willing to contribute a monthly amount to support my work ($1 would already be really nice). Obviously, I would never deprive you guys of chapters even if I make no money. I am already very grateful to all my supporters and readers who have chosen to donate to me.

A texting guide for male millennials

Screenshot (1)

To my dear readers,

Have you ever wondered why she doesn’t message you back? Have you ever wondered if you can do something to increase your chances of getting a response? Well, the answer is yes!

There had been multiple times where I had gotten text messages from guys that left me in disbelief. Very few caught my attention and drew my interest, while there were many whom may have disqualified themselves. For example, when I logged into a dating app, I received hundreds of messages but they were all of very low quality. I received about 300 heys. In my mind, I was thinking, “Seriously?” Perhaps, those guys may have potential, but they had already lost their chances by writing such an useless message. So, I decided to write this guide (21 pages) to share some of my experiences of what not to text as well as explain the differences between weak and strong texts. There will also be visual examples!

In my guide, you will get:

22 reasons why she doesn’t message you back
5 ways to improve your chances of getting a response
What not to do
Weak texts vs strong texts
Your goal in texting
Some real life examples of SSI texts Continue reading

IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT: The Eunuch is Pregnant

To my dear readers,

Unfortunately, wordpress has disabled all my ads because they say my content is too mature. The novel hasn’t gotten to that point yet, but it will starting from Chapter 50. As a result, I will have to move the translations on a different site.

If you have been a reader of mine, you would know that aside from translating, I also blog. I don’t want to lose all my potential ad revenue because of my translations (even though I barely make anything).

So, I am going to be using a different site to host and I’ll be paying for it (right now, I’m using the free wordpress, I only pay for the domain). However, since I’m terrible with technology, this is going to take awhile for me to figure out (Special thanks to Kiki for helping me). This means that Chapter 50 will not be released until I get the new site ready. Most likely, the new site will be up in running in less than a week. Until then, please feel free to check out my other posts on my blog! Or check out Your Highness, I know my wrongs on volarenovels! Your Highness is translated by me and it is finished.

The Eunuch is Pregnant -Chapter 49

To my dear readers,

This novel is about to get more visual next chapter.

P.S. Please support me by clicking on some ads and/or donating!! Any amount is appreciated. I practically make nothing from ads. ($8 last month *cries*)

Chapter 49: F**k this slave-owning society!

Leng Jun Yu’s voice had no temperature. It was similar to the cold wintry twelfth lunar month; causing others to shiver from fright.

The eunuch that came in was terrified. He couldn’t stop trembling as he stuttered.

“T-this s-servant i-is Xiao Li Zi. The chief manager sent me to serve you, P-Prince…”

It took a lot of effort for him to complete his sentence. Xiao Li Zi’s thin body was still shuddering. He looked very pitiful; like a yellow leaf being blown around by fierce wind.

Hearing Xiao Li Zi’s words, Leng Jun Yu’s eyebrows furrowed even deeper. His eyes flashed.

“Where is Xiao Yao Zi?”

“T-to respond to the Prince, Xiao Yao Zi is currently going through punishment. The chief manager has ordered him to kneel by the entrance door!”

“Punished by kneeling?”

Hearing this, Leng Jun Yu’s eyes flickered and he thought about it. In his residence, whenever the servants did something wrong, they had to go through punishment. Punished by kneeling was already considered a light punishment. However, as he thought about it, Leng Jun Yu couldn’t help but turn around and gazed at the rainy weather outside.

Although it was almost summer, the night temperature was undoubtedly much colder than the day. On top of that, there was a rainstorm outside. It must be extremely cold right now.

Leng Jun Yu thought about the delicate adorable little eunuch with anxious watery pupils and instantly felt his heart ache.

How can that tiny body handle being swept by wind and battered by the rain?

Thinking of this, Leng Jun Yu’s eyes subconsciously revealed signs of care.

Although it was very subtle, if anyone saw, they would have thought the Sun had risen from the West.

After all, this was the cold and ruthless King of Hell we’re talking about. When has he ever revealed so much kindness towards anyone? Plus, this was towards an eunuch?!

Leng Jun Yu wasn’t aware of his own behaviour. He didn’t even think about it as he spoke –

“Tell the chief manager that I want Xiao Yao Zi to serve me in my bath!”

——-

Oh God! It was as if there was a hole in the sky. The heavy rain just wouldn’t stop. It was pounding down so violently that her body was aching everywhere!

Currently, Le Yao Yao was drenched. There wasn’t a single dry spot on her body.

Also, right now, she felt like this body didn’t belong to her (it wasn’t hers to begin with). It was very awkward and heavy.

Her hands were stiff and her knees were numb. But she didn’t dare to loosen her grip. Her eyes were covered by a layer of rain as she fixedly stared at the smoke of the burning incense as it rise in spirals.

It will be over soon! It will be over soon! I will get through the four hours. Then, I can change my clothes and return to rest in my room.

Damn it. She was so hungry and cold right now…

F**k this slave-owning society! Oh God, can’t you just strike me with lightning and send me back to the 21st century? I don’t want to stay here!

Le Yao Yao yelled from within. Sadly, there was just unlimited rain but no lightning. Her wish will not come true. Continue reading

The Eunuch is Pregnant -Chapter 48

To my dear readers,

Sorry this chapter took so long! I would have translated yesterday but it was Canada Day! Canada turned 150 years old. (Confederation was 1867). Anyhow, I will translate another chapter tomorrow. There will be another chapter up in 24 hours!

P.S. Sometimes the sentences are really awkward. I hope you are not confused. Prince Rui has no idea that Le Yao Yao is going through punishment right now. What do you think he is going to do? 😉

Chapter 48: Fleeing from an arrange marriage!

Hearing Xing’s words, Leng Jun Yu’s expression gradually became warmer.

Xing and Yue could sense it as they were standing behind him.

This wasn’t surprising though.

Although their master had a cold personality and was very difficult to approach, when he was ten, under coincidental fate, Leng Jun Yu was chosen by jianghu’s famous Tianshan Daoist to be his disciple.

At the time, the former Emperor was still alive and he was ecstatic.  

After all, the Tianshan Daoist had excellent martial arts abilities. Although he was already over a hundred years old, he was still famous and known to everyone.

Regardless if it was jianghu or the Imperial household, he was very much respected.

The reason was because the Tianshan Daoist loved his country; despite appearing not to meddle in its affairs.

A few decades ago, a few dependent states united together to fight the Heaven Yuan dynasty. They wanted to rule and take over. But the Tianshan Daoist raised up the war flag and joined the battle. In the end, he defeated the dependent states and helped the Heaven Yuan dynasty maintain its power.

As a result, one can imagine the status the Tianshan Daoist had in the Heaven Yuan dynasty. At the time, the former Emperor wanted to recruit him to the Imperial court, but surprisingly, the Tianshan Daoist didn’t want position or wealth. Like a wisp of smoke, he disappeared without a trace.

The former Emperor was sadden. It was a pity he couldn’t keep such a talented man around. Continue reading

The Eunuch is Pregnant -Chapter 47

Hehe. The 7th Prince is one of my favourite characters! He is one of the second male leads too!! *wink wink* I think some of you guys might like him too! ^^” (but he’s not going to appear yet…. soon though!!!!!)

P.S. What do you think will happen to Le Yao Yao?

Chapter 47: The chief manager is an asshole!

Le Yao Yao had a sour expression on her face as she faced Leng Jun Yu. Leng Jun Yu’s eyes were narrowed and his red lips were tightly pursed; indicating his displeasure.

His voice was like the cold wind blowing from an ice cave. It caused others to shiver –

“Not bad. Not bad. You sure have guts.”

His voice was low and hoarse. Although he gave her a praise, his voice didn’t conceal any of his fury.

“Eh….”

Hearing the King of Hell’s words, Le Yao Yao felt like there was a cotton stuck in her throat. She couldn’t say a word.

Also, her tiny body was shaking from fear. She was honestly terrified!

She recalled the incident from two days ago. Prince Rui had slaughtered over dozens of assassins in such atrocious ways! He didn’t allow a single one of them to live. He was ruthless and heartless.

If he could get rid of those assassins so easily, he could probably demolish her with one slap.

Le Yao Yao had turned all white by now. Fortunately, the overbearing feeling disappeared after a few seconds.

She waited until the steady footsteps had became distant before she slowly lifted her head up and breathed a sigh of relief.

Thank you for your blessings, Buddha! The King of Hell was gone.

But Le Yao Yao was actually kind of surprised that the King of Hell didn’t kill her. Because Xiao Mu Zi had told her once the King of Hell had ‘ka cha’ an eunuch’s head for knocking over a cup of tea. In comparison, her issue was much bigger, yet the King of Hell spared her?

Strange! Very strange indeed!

While Le Yao Yao was staring in awe, an angry voice entered her ears; bring her train of thought back to reality.

When Le Yao Yao saw the furious face of the chief manager, she wanted to cry but had no tears….

Damn it! Her bad luck really wouldn’t let her go….

—–

Although it was early Summer, the temperature always fluctuated a lot.

In a moment, the initial clear and boundless sky was thoroughly covered by black clouds.

The low black clouds hovered in midair and looked more like a black whirlpool. People who saw it would hold their breaths.

Right before a rainstorm, it was always quiet. Continue reading

The Eunuch is Pregnant -Chapter 46

To my dear readers,

I finally finished two chapters. They were 6 pages single-spaced!! O_O. I wanted to make them longer so you guys wouldn’t have to suffer as much (and make the story move a bit faster). So please support me! Any amount of donations would be appreciated! I translated all day!!

Chapter 46: Nobody left the residence

Shi Cheng was initially very scared. But after thinking about it, he was the victim! Logically, Prince Rui was the one that had to compensate him. He wasn’t the one that had done something wrong to his people. Why should he be so afraid?

So, Master Shi straightened his back and no longer stuttered.

But Shi Cheng didn’t know that in everyone else’s eyes, he looked like a piece of shit.

“Oh. So Master Shi had been beaten up.”

Leng Jun Yu opened his red lips and spoke very slowly. He acted surprised, but it was very fake. Through Master Shi’s eyes, it was obvious that Leng Jun Yu looked down on him and he didn’t bother trying to hide it at all.

Immediately, Shi Cheng began to turn green and white from anger.

If the person facing him wasn’t the King of Hell, Master Shi would have violently ran up and punched him already. He hated being looked down upon. Sadly, his opponent was the King of Hell. Regardless of how many rude and disgusted looks Prince Rui gave him, he didn’t possess the heart of a bear and the courage of the leopard to fiercely confront him.

After all, the entire Heaven Yuan dynasty knew all about his ruthless and savage past achievements. The incident with the assassins from a few days ago had somehow already spreaded to the external world.

According to rumours, those that had escaped death from Liangshan foolishly thought they would be able to get revenge for their mountain thieves brothers by breaking into the Prince’s residence; only to be destroyed by Prince Rui’s bare hands.

In addition, not one of them survived. They were all slaughtered in different ways. Some had their arms broken, legs broken, brains exploded, hearts and intestines scooped out..

It was truly as frightening as it sounded. Continue reading

The Eunuch is Pregnant -Chapter 45

To my dear readers,

Sorry for the wait! I will definitely do a double release next time so we can get rid of Shi Cheng and move on with the story. Recently, the author’s choice of words and vocabulary have been making it harder and harder to translate. 😥 . Please support me by clicking an ad or donating!! I am out of brain juice -_-”

Anyhow, if you can’t wait, check out my friend Miss Q’s translations of Assassin Farmer! I actually met Miss Q in real life. ❤

P.S. I forgot to mention that we are at the raws of Chapter 65. From now on, the chapters are massively long. This chapter has 11k words so I have to split it into a few chapters. So even though novel updates say this novel only has 220 chapters, it will actually be much longer.

Chapter 45: How are you going to compensate me?

Following Prince Rui’s hoarse but confident accusation, Le Yao Yao experienced a mental explosion. A loud thunderbolt exploded across the clear sky, and her only thought was –

It was over!

She had been exposed! She beat up the arrogant pig, but he had found her!

She didn’t think her actions were wrong though. If she could go back in time, she would still have done the same. But only if she could guarantee she wouldn’t be caught.

Now, the person was going to catch her. If the King of Hell found out she was the culprit, most likely, she wouldn’t be able to see tomorrow’s sunrise.  

Thinking of this, Le Yao Yao became fearful and depressed.

Currently, the King of Hell was watching her intently. Although his face revealed no emotions, his eyes were deadly. It was as if there was a powerful force coming towards her way. Le Yao Yao’s scalp turned numbed again.

“Umm, uh….”

Le Yao Yao wanted to explain but she couldn’t stop stuttering. Before she could say another word, Prince Rui ruthlessly flung the lower hem of his clothes as he turned and exited the room. He headed towards the front doors of the residence.

Seeing this, Le Yao Yao forcefully gulped down her saliva and looked like she wanted she wanted to cry but had no tears.

Oh God! Could this really be the end?

—–

The entrance of Prince Rui’s residence was very grand. The bright red doors were massive and heavy. They gave off a dignified and courageous aura.

All the Imperial guards were wearing body armour and helmets. They had accessories around their waists and looked like an impressive bunch.

But at this moment, the residence was surrounded by a group of hooligan servants. The leader was a huge figure dressed in gold. He looked like a moist, fat pig.

The fattie had a pig face covered with bruises. The ones that stood out the most were his matching black eyes. With a quick glance, he almost looked like a national treasure (panda)!

This guy was nonetheless Master Shi. In fact, he was so furious about getting beat up that he stormed home to change his clothing and rushed here with his servants before even applying medication on his face!

Originally, Shi Cheng had always been the Capital’s arrogant bully. He would use his father as back-up and tyrannized the weak. Ever since he was little, he had always been the one doing the offending. Who would dare to offend him?

Even when he caused his father to be steaming mad; at most, he would just tell him to kneel in front of the ancestors for awhile.

Therefore, he was going to get revenge no matter what. Plus, the ones who beat him were actually lowly servants. There was no way he was going to swallow this down.

Although those two were the servants of Prince Rui, it was reasonable of him to get revenge. So even if the Prince himself comes out, he would still have to hand them over!

But in Shi Cheng’s opinion, the Prince definitely wouldn’t come out for two measly servants. The most authoritarian person he would probably have to deal with was the chief manager. Continue reading
