Villainous Butler, Volume 2 Prologue + Announcement

On the first day of Christmas, my true love gave to me~

A chapter! 😀

Hey everyone~! Finally done my break. I know 3 weeks is longer than my usual 1 week post-volume break, but I was feeling really burnt out.

…and my laptop broke down and is currently being repaired. So that’s a factor too. It feels weird translating on the family PC instead of my ‘comfy spot’ where I usually do so. (^^|||

Well, that’s one of the benefits of not setting a schedule, and at least I only did it after finishing a volume instead of at a cliffhanger lol

Anyways, I’m back and frequent chapters will be a must! Btw, I’ll be doing this and Evil Lord in rotation despite how I usually work since I’ve never had 2 active popular projects before.

…not to mention I can feel the impatience of the Evil Lord fans building up. (please stop DM’ing me) haha… ha… seriously. 😛

Last but not least, Special thank you  to everyone who sent me donations this past 3 weeks! It really meant a lot to me knowing that you were still willing to support me during my break and I hope you know I appreciate it!

Anyways, I’ve kept you long enough, so enjoy the chapter! (^^)/

Hey everyone, sorry for the delay. I was just feeling a little burnt out… (^^|||

Special thanks to Christopher S., and Lionel V.B.!

Thanks you so much for the support!

These chapters are really, really long and detailed, and I just finished an entire volume of them… can I have a reward please? 🙂

Villainous Butler, Volume 1 Chapter 18

READ CHAPTER HERE

I forgot to mention. On the 9th the Author for Evil Lord said the web novel will resume next week, so the prologue for the 5th volume should be out by Saturday at the latest. However, I’m not translating it until the volume is completely released and I’ve found a good stopping point for Villainous Butler. So you Evil Lord fans will still have to wait a bit, unfortunately.

No donations this time… can I get a little help there please? (||>w<)

Enjoy the chapter! (^^)/

I’m dead… this chapter was more than double the size of last chapter… but it was worth it (which explains the delay) . There’s a reason why this is one of my favourite chapters of the volume. 🙂

Only one donation this time, unfortunately… can I get a little help there please? This chapter was A LOT of work. @_@

Special thanks to Pa S.! You’re my sole supporter today and you’re a long time one I can count on! Thank you so much for everything! I really appreciate it all!

Villainous Butler, Volume 1 Chapter 12

READ CHAPTER HERE

Yikes… so much hate last chapter. SO MUCH. Its the first time I’ve ever seen a chapter spark so much controversy. @_@

It even dropped the novel score back to 4.6… Just when we finally reached 4.7 too… orz

Well… whatever, the political subtleties are finished for now, so hopefully this chapter is more to your liking.

Donations… none this time unfortunately. Any chance I could have some help there? These chapters are killer to get out, and I’d really appreciate a reward…

Oh btw, if you’re one of the people who couldn’t understand last chapter, here’s an easy to understand summary of the important parts:

  • The prince asks to dance with Sophia.
  • Sophia says ‘no’ because she’s busy with her previous commitment, but is willing to make time for him later. Because she used the words ‘previous commitment’, she wasn’t explicitly saying she was prioritising talking to the leader of the commoner faction Libert, so the elitists wouldn’t be able to take that as her aligning herself with him. She also uses ‘for now’, which meant that she was reserving a dance for the prince later, but because girls weren’t supposed to initiate dances in this setting, her words could be taken as very forward and passionate, which should’ve been enough to satisfy the prince.
  • It doesn’t satisfy the prince. The prince is a normal 12 year old boy experiencing his first love. He doesn’t understand that hidden meanings in Sophia’s words, and thus wasn’t flattered by how ‘passionate’ her delayed invitation was.
  • Prince’s follower interferes, forcing Sophia into a position where she had to accept the prince’s invitation immediately or she’ll antagonise the elitists. She then leaves the matter regarding Libert to Cyril.
  • Cyril apologises to both Libert and Alicia for various things. Alicia says its okay and asks if they can just talk. Libert says its okay for Alicia to stay and becomes interested in her.
  • Cyril wants to tell Libert that they’re on his side, but can’t say it directly or else the elitists (who were watching them) would then know and become hostile, completely ruining the whole reason Sophia started dancing with the prince in the first place (to not antagonise the elitists). Libert then tests Cyril for his intentions to see if he’s an elitist. Since the ideologies of the servant reflect their master. Cyril answers his questions perfectly, but because he did it so well, that only made Libert suspicious that this was all an act that he had prepared for beforehand. (Think of it like how you wouldn’t trust a perfect politician with no flaws whatsoever, since then you know that they’re hiding something)
  • Cyril admits that he can’t win over Libert and Sophia herself would have to do it. But after Sophia finishes her dance with the prince, but the followers ask her out to more dances in hopes of disrupting her talks with Libert. She accepts so that she wouldn’t offend them and turn the elitists hostile, even if she was in the right to reject them given the circumstances, all the while thinking that since Cyril was the one dealing with Libert, everything would be fine.
  • Everything is not fine. Libert understands Sophia’s position and problems, which is why he was okay with the second prince dancing with her, but for her to accept the optional dances of the followers she could’ve rejected rather than return and fulfill her previous commitment to dance with him, she crosses the line. Her actions of neglecting him and leaving him to her child servant instead were perceived as him ‘not being worthy of being taken seriously’, which left Libert insulted and upset.
  • Libert then leaves the party saying he has a previous commitment to attend to. (He really doesn’t, that was just him getting poetic justice by using the phrase that Sophia was using to build up his hopes but ultimately failed in following through in.)

So yeah, that’s one chapter of subtleties and innuendos compacted into 9 points. Hopefully that helps and you can re-read chapter 11 with a better understanding now. I also added this to the end of chapter 11 to help new readers.

Enjoy the chapter! (^^)/
