    Summary

    A look into the Personal Logs of a Linguist on Deep Space Nine, who is uncovering the funniest and sweetest translation errors, and trying to patch the UT along the way.

    Summary

    Abstract: in which various methods of analysis are applied to the corpus of troll vocabulary, speculations on the phonetic character of trollish is given, and an expanded lexicon of trollish words are considered.
    In other words, I'm throwing analytical tools at the wall and seeing what sticks, making guesses, and eventually applying these analytical processes to the names of trolls from hiveswap.

    Summary

    "Though this is a dream, do not dismiss it as mere fantasy."

    Nine heroes from across three timelines, brought together to fight an ancient evil. You've heard it before, I'm sure.

    But what if?
    What if one of the Heroes wasn't what he claimed?
    What if the Lost Woods never let go of their found child?
    What if the Hero of Warriors bound her chest and spoke without voice?
    What if things were just a little bit different?

    The Chain remains, but its links are rusted.

    Welcome to the Skylands.

    Summary

    Obi-Wan is a tired grad student who gets the opportunity of a lifetime to study language on Mandalore - a notoriously closed society that has decided to let in researchers for the first time in decades.

    Does Mando'a really only have one tense? Will he ever be able to get his informants to talk to him? And why does the Mand'alor's oldest son keep looking at him like that?

    Summary

    Генрих считал себя одним из немногих нормальных людей на факультете иностранных языков, и к тому же стопроцентным гетеро. Виталь считал себя убеждённым одиночкой с внутренним миром простым, как табурет.
    Оба совершенно точно не предполагали, во что выльется их знакомство. Обоим пришлось многое узнать о себе.
    И что им теперь с этим делать?

    Summary

    After five years of extortion, pressure, and grief, Shanxi’s colonists have had enough. A select few brave souls lean into the assistance of their supposed enemy to free their fellow colonists from
    their true captors. In the midst of the occupation, an obscure mechanic with few memories of her past is an informant and a saboteur of sorts, discreetly assisting their liberators – a “traitor” as their oppressors would say, or a “ghost,” as her correspondents refer to her.

    She once said that she would fight for something worth dying for until she found something worth living for, but what is the cost of either? With heavy trauma inflicted during the Conflict, she rebuilds and moves forward, seeking an individual and a future that supersedes all else, and changes who she is in pursuit of both. The journey reveals much more about herself than she ever wanted to know…
