Maybe your sig is suitable for a translation exercise? Where
have you got this text from? Or did you make it up yourself?
I noticed there are similar snippets around in your sig, is
this part of some story that you publish here in bits? If I
hadn't another translation exercise to do for Ayeri, I'd had
started with this one.
