Stellar Transformations – Chapters 33 – 55 Restored!

So as many of the newer readers of ST know, after he-man’s disappearance when translating through Book 11 of Stellar Transformations, the translation has gone through some rather hectic times, including numerous different translators taking on and dropping the project, sometimes simultaneously. Due to some philosophical disputes between translators, as well as some hurtful comments by readers, one of them, Rylain, an excellent translator who is currently working on Transcending the Nine Heavens, ended up dropping his translation of Stellar Transformations and also removing his chapters, creating a 16 chapter gap. This, obviously, created difficulties for any newer readers (or, indeed, any readers who wanted to go back to reread those chapters).

Let me emphasize that Stellar Transformations has a special place in my heart; it was he-man’s translation of ST which first got me into reading Xianxia, first ST, then CD, and more. In a very real way, you can say that if it hadn’t been for ST, there would have been no Wuxiaworld. So I’ve felt very bad that many new readers, right at a fairly exciting point in the story, found themselves ‘caught’ with a 16 chapter gap between them and the most ‘current’ translations.

A number of people had saved copies of Rylain’s translations and offered them to me to post, or even offered to ‘modify’ them so I could post them. Of course, I did not do that, and I reject that in the strongest possible terms; while I truly do understand how fans feel about it, those sixteen chapters represent dozens of hours of Rylain’s hard work, and I unequivocally disagree with taking it outright.

I have been in touch with Rylain over the course of this saga, and today, I’m very happy to report that Rylain has very kindly agreed to not only restore those missing chapters, but also to allow Wuxiaworld to host them directly! So, new ST readers – the ‘complete’ ST, from books 1 through 11, is now up! Enjoy! 🙂

    1. I offer my biggest thanks to Rylain for giving these translations to us. I appreciate the hard work and effort that both he and you have gone thru to get theese chapters to us and appreciate it very much. Thank You!

  1. Thanks for the generosity, Rylain! 😀
    I have the copy, but it is still pleasant to know you have allowed Wuxiaworld to host your translation!
    Now, if only Thunder comes out with Book 12 chapter 5 soon… 🙂

    A lesson for trolls: don’t kill (troll until they quit translating) the hen (translators) that lays the golden egg (translation works).

  2. glad to see things work out for you and rylain as well as the new readers (meh them >.> lol I jk)

    as for the newest chapters now lol where did we lose thunder :S I get the feeling someone left him behind in the wilderness on our last world hopping expedition and forgot to tell him where the next meet-up was 😛

    1. Saw your comments on the Teaser Page 🙂

      I’m as impatient as you – how I wish to see the teaser page turns to “page not found” (I refresh that page several time a day), for we know the chapter is coming soon, but now I just remembered that Thunder had an operation recently and so I really – really wish him well, and I really wish him not to force himself if he’s not. I’m as selfish as every leecher for wanting to read soon, but I don’t want the translators to overexert themselves for us leecher’s selfish desire. 🙁

  3. Thanks for your hard work Rylain! Thank you Ren for helping to soothe the wounded soul! Many hurtful people lash out, not caring about the people they hurt. The sad thing is they may forget about the person they hurt, but that wound doesn’t go away easily. I’m glad this issue was resolved and hopefully Rylain is at a better place now.

    Remember why you had the passion to translate the story, how you felt when you read it, and the many, many people who enjoy it and may be moved to do the same thing you have done or create new interesting works themselves! There are many negative people, but I’m sure many more people appreciate your efforts. One of the reasons I try to say my thanks while I can.

  4. Thanks to my awesome whale Rylain sama for kindly hosting your translations here on wuxiaworld!!
    ♥I love you rylain sama♥ *kyaaaaah* (fanboy’s most embarassing scream)

    Many thanks to Ren and wuxiaworld for helping to make this bridge/connection!!

    1. 金丹 – Jindan, aka golden pellet/golden elixir
      元婴 – Yuanying, aka first baby/original baby (because that’s the shape the Jindan takes at this point).

      And so on and so forth.

  5. Thank you very much Ren and Rylain for making the chapter gap completed. ST is a very fascinating story and I am happy you two are willing to share it with eveyone. Thanks so much.
