ARC 4

THE EVERLASTING COVENANT

Chapter 1 [The Place They Returned To]

 

The grey gloom of the sky mirrored the state of Subaru’s heart.

In front of Crusch’s mansion, six dragon carriages lined up in a row. Those that fled from the Roswaal domain, the villagers of Arlam(or so the place was called) were all loaded up. Only the final special carriage was reserved for Subaru and Emilia.

The road will be long. So unlike the way here, they won’t be riding with the children, since there is a mountain of things he has to say to Emilia… and he wasn’t so insensitive as to let the children ride alongside “her”…

[I will become rather lonely]

Silently gazing at the dragon carriages, Subaru heard a voice from behind him.

Turning to see, it was Crusch looking at him. Her long green hair caressed by the misty wind, she closed her eyes, and seeing her, Subaru scratched his head.

[Subaru: It’s not like anything will happen if I stay here, I’d feel bad to just keep sponging on your hospitality —to be honest, I really should be taking some time to recover, but it can’t be helped]

Opening and closing his hands, Subaru thought about the state of his health, and smiled awkwardly. Back then, it was to recover his health that he came to Crusch’s mansion in the first place. Roswaal had a hand in sending him here, and it still annoys him to see that Clown’s wishes fulfilled so perfectly. As a matter of principle, even if he fulfills any of that guy’s wishes, it should be by continually stomping it.

[Crusch: Natsuki Subaru-sama, you know you’re welcome to sponge here as long as you like… even though it’s hard to say that out loud]

[Subaru: Thank you for your offer… but while I want to, there is still a pile of loose ends I need to tie up. There’s the White Whale, “Sloth”, and the whole deal with the merchants guild…]

Declining Crusch’s offer, Subaru shook his head. He was thinking of Julius and Anastasia.

Out of the three factions that joined forces against the White Whale and “Sloth”, only Anastasia’s purely benefited.

Crusch’s camp, by slaying the White Whale, had accomplished a glorious feat four hundred years in the making — but Crusch’s amnesia was a devastating blow.

As for Subaru and Emilia’s camp that defeated “Sloth”, the supposedly well-informed Roswaal’s absence from it all doesn’t bode well at all.

In terms of casualties, although they didn’t suffer heavy losses like Crusch’s camp, to Subaru, his loss was far too great to bear.

In comparison, only losing a portion of her mercenaries and supply trains, Anastasia’s forces are almost completely intact. And even though she wasn’t the main player in either battle, her forces made tremendous contributions with minimal losses, a highly profitable investment.

While the damage to their forces made the other two factions hesitate in publicizing their victories, it was not a concern for Anastasia.

In order to check Anastasia’s ascent, close coordination between Crusch and Emilia’s factions will be necessary…

….Seeing Subaru deep in those thoughts, Crusch yawned lazily. Subaru’s brows frowned when he saw this, and Crusch, an embarrassed expression on her face, only waved [nothing] with her hands…

[Subaru: Sorry to be so sentimental… but I’m ashamed I can’t repay you for your kindness…]

[Crusch: The ones that repay favors right away are not worthy opponents. Don’t worry about it when there is so much on your plate. Besides, we received plenty in return already]

Listening to Crusch’s courteous words, Subaru turned to look at the front of the special carriage. Compared to the others, it looked like an overly-decorated high-class VIP dragon carriage, and the honor of pulling it goes to—

[Crusch: Such an unambitious request… you want to treat this ground dragon’s wounds and take care of her?]

[Subaru: I do owe this ground dragon a great deal. Even though it’s only been a relatively short time, the number of times we rode into the brink of death is more than I can count. And I intend to face many more challenges together with her, so I won’t consider Patrasche to be a toy]

[Crusch: —In that case, I have no need to worry]

The ground dragon— Patrasche glanced at Subaru as he spoke, and then, as if rejecting his admiration, turned to Wilhelm. The old swordsman, who up to now had been checking the carriages before their departure, nodded at their conversation.

[Wilhelm: “Diana” is the most difficult breed of ground dragons to please. To shield her master with her own body, Subaru must be quite adored by this ground dragon]

[Subaru: Even though I don’t remember much, before the battle with the White Whale, I just decided to choose this one all of a sudden]

It’s true they have a bond. This was more than fortunate, because if he picked any other ground dragon, whether it’s the White Whale or Betelgeuse, he would not have made it out alive. Anyway,

[Subaru: I can no longer be satisfied by any other ground dragon besides you… Ah, seductive Patrasche!]

Touching the smooth texture of the side of Patrasche’s stomach with the palm of his hand as if to show off his affections, Subaru looked into Patrasche’s rather pissed-off looking eyes.

To Subaru’s overly intimate molestation, the ground dragon reacted with an expression of profound disgust from the bottom of its heart, and jerked her body as if trying to break Subaru’s fingers.

[Subaru: Ow! That’s overreacting just to hide your embarrassment! Though with all that exercise wiping windows back in Junior High, my fingers won’t break so easily!]

[Wilhelm: The ground dragon is joking with you. Such amiable communication must be an indication of the unwavering trust between you two]

[Subaru: Does that look like communication? It seemed to be just me offering my love one-sidedly and Patrasche rejecting me with her body language!]

That unspoken trust on the battlefield… is woefully absent right now. Now it’s just a sassy attitude… But in the end, even with the cold demeanor, Patrasche allowed him to pet her.

  5. [Subaru: It’s not like anything will happen if I stay here, I’d feel bad to just keep sponging on your hospitality

    I feel like instead of “sponge”, it would sound better if “intruding” was used. Soaking up hospitality or further leaching off of Crusch’s household, the meaning you want to present is yours to decide.

    There’s also another instance of “sponge”, and “stay” seems like it would fit the sentence better, but again, it’s your choice what to do with it.

    1. Slowmoder please tell me the reasons why they need to be changed, I can’t understand when you just capitialize what you want to replace it with.

      The road between the Capital and the Roswaal domain or Sanctuary IS long, it’s not supposed to be in past tense, it will always be long geographically.

      “They behaved”, they didn’t behave anything. Only the seating arrangement is different this time.

      The narrative is in present tense, Subaru will be telling Emilia things, but it hasn’t happened yet.

      The Author’s writing style is to narrate from subconsciousness of the characters. He is paraphrasing the characters’ understanding of the situation. You can notice many instances where the narration corresponds exactly with the character’s thoughts in the scene.

    2. In other words, because the original author writes in present tense and often changes tenses to past and future depending what’s needed for the narration, I can’t change everything into past tense like that.
      It would also make the narration extremely dull to read and devoid of style if everything was in past tense.

      1. You are a superb translator. Especially because you’re so picky with words, which is a good thing. Though I still do have to admit that something feels strange about this part of the sentence: “Also because there *is* a mountain of things he *has* to say to Emilia, Subaru *prearranged* it so they could be alone.” This is one single sentence with two different tenses. It goes from present to past tense.

        Maybe the original author did this as well, but gramatically, it’s at least weird, if not wrong. He *prearranged* it (in the past) because there *was* (at the moment of the prearranging, which is in the past) a mountain of things he *had* to say. Logically, it shouldn’t matter if there’s anything he wants to say *right now*. What matters is if he already wanted to say those things at the moment of the prearranging.

        Or simply “has prearranged it” instead of “prearranged it” would make it fit as well. Then the whole sentence will be present tense.

        PLEASE NOTE THAT I FULLY SUPPORT YOUR TRANSLATION. You’re the most awesome chicken… I mean, translator for even starting with this. I hope you keep going and ignore complaints like this. XD Yeah, I know. I should just shut up and enjoy. Which I will definitely be doing from now on. =)

      The second one, Anastasia’s forces are sill currently intact, shouldn’t it be in present tense?
      The third one, Crusch and Emilia’s camps are not currently in close coordination, they will need to be in the future. Isn’t “will” ok there?

Thats no excuse. I know. Just an attempt of an explaination. I hope I didn’t sound to rude.

    1. The problem is that the pedantic application of English, and in some cases incorrect application, shouldn’t override the original author’s choices.

      Chic-kun is doing a translation and the point of translation is to as accurately convey the source meaning as is possible within the limitations of the linguistic differences. Thus, unless you know something we don’t, the correct tense is always the one that best fits the Japanese. If you can read Japanese and can provide reference back to the source as to why your corrections make more sense, or if you can provide a reason why the phrasing could be better while still maintaining the same tense and meaning, I’m sure our hardworking host would be glad of your input.
      If your input is based purely on proof reading the English without the context of the original material then they might come across as considerably less helpful.

      1. First, let me praise the Chicken!

        Now… I guess this problem about the consistency in present/past tense in the translation is a choice for the translator in question, since it seems to differ between people. There are two ways to do it:
        – Slightly alter the Japenese tense so that at least the grammar is correct.
        – Keep the Japanese tense at all costs for style choices, even if sometimes it doesn’t fit in the English language (Chicken’s way).

        Both ways are correct, and neither are the only way.

        Now there’s also some people that try to “correct” everything into the past tense, which is DEFINITELY NOT the way to do this. Translating light novels, web novels and other stuff from Japanese to English is already a lot of work. Chicken is very fast in translating and offers a very high quality. Please let’s all agree to be less nitpicky, since s/he seems to be very thoughtful about the wording of his translation and I certainly haven’t seen anything that is objectively wrong (though I haven’t really proofread it at all). Actually, I’ve seen a lot of things that have been translated much better than I expected. I can only applaud Chicken for this.

  17. Just for the sake of contributing to the proofreading topic, as a fellow translator, I’m curious if you translate aspect (tense) directly from Japanese most of the time or if you make modifications for English as well. Japanese aspect is conceptually logical, but also quite different from contemporary usage of tense in English, so aside from the more obvious instances of correspondence, there can definitely be modifications to English. I am guilty of it myself, but that’s also why we should have editors! =P
    Regardless, happy to see someone take up the effort. I’ve been catching up to the current events through the light novel (though I moved back to my country, so I don’t have volumes 7-9), and I’m mostly just curious what kinds of things are different in the web novel that would be important to take into account if I were to continue with it after I read volume 6.

    Liked by 1 person

    1. I as I understand it, the Light Novel cuts and moves around details from the Web Novel. So events that took place in 3 loops might be combined into one. The final loop however almost always stays the same, so the progression of the story is the same. But I haven’t read enough of the WN to be sure. I only started reading from WN near the end of Arc 3. Before that I was reading the LN.

      For the translation, it has to do with what the the passage is trying to say. The narration has a sense of time. Sometimes after a dialog, the narration explains the background context, which is past tense.
      When narrating what the characters are doing and what is happening right now or still ongoing, it’s present tense.
      When describing what a character just did while the dialog above was going on, that would be past tense.
      The thought-like narrations especially should be from the character’s sense of time, so that you can almost put quotes around it and it would be as if it’s a thought bubble.

      I don’t do it perfectly though, as I review and re read I choose what most matches the sense of time.

      1. Dude, I think we should be thankful TranslationChicken is doing all this for the fandom with almost no compensation. I still think they should at least put ads on the website instead of relying solely on donations (unless that’d end up causing copyright troubles as well).

        Keep up the good work! 🙂
