The profiles for Zephyr and the combined information on Gaspar, Taura, Balthazar, and Nikolai have been updated. I have no idea what will be next. What I can tell you is that Shevat is one big, depressing island of angst-- which we already knew, but now my memory has been refreshed.
The profile pages for Jesse, Primera, and Bishop Stone have been updated.
The profile pages for Shitan and Billy have been updated to reflect the translations I mentioned in an update about three years ago. :D
Other changes may be made unannounced, but they'll end up here eventually. I don't want to promise to do Ramsus's profile and then do Jesse's instead. I'd feel bad! You know how it is. If you scroll to the bottom of this page, you'll see a list of what I'll be updating in the near future.
Ahahah, updates. What was I saying about that?
Have a small one for now: the general faq and submission faq have been rewritten to reflect changes in policy and email address - and also to be less bitchy.
Upcoming: a rewrite/correction of Shitan's profile (which is almost done), and possible one or two others. Jesse and Billy, probably. The references are also in dire need of help, but one thing at a time.
Affiliate links have been removed from the front page and the link page, as both sites have ceased to exist. There's an essay submission in the inbox, and possibly fic forthcoming, so there may be an update in the near future. Don't quote me on that, though.
Also: links to some of the PW translations mentioned below were added to the character profiles that are in especially bad condition. While I want to rewrite them with the new information, there isn't much incentive to do so. I'll get around to it eventually.
An actual update today! Like, with content! :D Two analysis essays - one of which is actually an essay, and very impressive - a winamp skin, and a fic from me. No translations forthcoming just yet, but I hope to have something by the end of the summer. Many apologies to those who submitted work and had to wait so long for an update.
- The Oedipal Relationships of Xenogears and Lacanian Psychodynamics
- Comments on Krelian's will, purposes and final destiny
- Winamp Skins
- The Burden of History
One more translation from winter vacation: Kahran Ramsus. Alas, I ran out of time trying to hammer some Valkyrie Profile translations into shape.
A quick note and reference: new translations are in progress - and they're going very slowly - at my journal. Homework is preventing me from making a real update, so I'll link the finished material here:
- Shitan Uzuki
- Elements, Strike Team
- Billy Lee Black
- Primera, Stone, Jesse pt.1
- Jesse pt.2 - Zephyr pt.1
- Jesse (final installment)
- Zephyr, Gaspar, Melchoir, Joshua
This information will be integrated into the character profiles when I have time, which isn't right now. Sorry about that! It'll happen.
...soon. Really. This is actually important, since people (apparently) still come here for information! I forget sometimes because the fandom has slowed down so much. Many, many apologies for the delay. And also for perpetuating psuedo-canon for so many years, even if I didn't know it. My translation sources were varied, and some were more accurate than others. ^^
All updates will be recorded here as a list from now on. They won't be big enough to require more.
