I really enjoyed reading your Good Omens fanfictions, so I made some fanart to go with one of the stories: sydneycoalminergirl.deviantart…
Since the book GO ended after I read it, it was great to read a possibly continued life for the characters of GO in all those fanfictions, and it's added a lot of great stuff to my group, so thanks :D

*ding* OhGodfanartmussgoseeeeeee...

But first!

Thank you for saying that. One of my goals with writing, especially with the not-yet-quite-finished quadrilogy, is precisely that: exploring what might happen afterwards. It feels very rewarding to hear that I've reached that goal. Thanks! And as for the adding stuff: please, don't mention it. It's a pleasure!

Now: fanart! *zing*

Okay. Two things. One, the box and its contents are in front of me right now, and two, I've just finished listening to Baba Yetu. It was the only possible thing to do, because it's their song.

I just... I don't know what to say. I really don't. No matter how long I live, I'll never understand what it is in me, or what people see in me, that makes them do such incredible things for me. It's just... It's so beautiful, that simple, little wooden box. Wood painted white, with just a sprinkle of gilding, and the lid, with that little angel, coloured just the same. It looks so... Remember when you sent me that book, and I said it was full of time? This is too. It looks like it could be hundreds of years old, a millennium even, kept in a secret place all this time, only to be brought to light now that they two have been. Grey light, obviously.

And that seal. You say it works on two levels. I'll say something about the story level first. I will be brief, because I don't need many words. If it were up to me, you know what I'd do? I'd enshrine it in a church. Not St Bavo's Cathedral in Ghent. Not Westminster Abbey. Not Reims Cathedral. Not even St Peter's Basilica. No. None of those will do. If it were up to me, I'd place it in the inner chamber of the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, in Jerusalem. Adam and Eve would want it that way. Nothing could be holier, in their sovereign eyes.

And then you said that, on a different level, the seal symbolises our friendship. To this, I can respond even more briefly. Like so: *kisses the seal*. There.

I may not have said it before, but I'll say it now. For everything that's been given to me, all the precious, priceless things - and you know that includes you - I thank God. Before, now, and always.

Amen.

Wait, wasn't there something else I was supposed to be doing?

*tinkatinkatink*

Of course! The translation exercice! Here, I did it before I came up to type this e-mail. Now, let me get it...

Here's the original, for convenient reference:

-

Becsüljük meg az egyszerű dolgokat -
a hófödte táj békességét,
az örökzöldek friss illatát,
a gyertyafény melegségét...
Így karácsony elmúltával
az ünnep hangulata meghitt,
boldog emlékekben él tovább.

Legyen karácsony
egy olyan boldog és meghitt ünnep,
amely egész évben
kedves emlékeket idés fel!

-

And my translation attempt:

-

Let us appreciate the simple things -
the tranquility of the snow-covered land,
the fresh scent of evergreen trees,
the warmth of candlelight... (<-- Did this line without a dictionary yay!)
This way, when Christmas is over,
the cosy atmosphere of the celebration
will live (literally: lives) on in happy memories.

May Christmas be
such a happy and cosy feast,
that, the whole year long,
it will call (literally: calls) up sweet memories! (If I understood the Hungarian correctly, then 'amely', linked to 'olyan', still directly refers to 'ünnep', as in: "...such a [...] feast that will, the whole year long, call up...", but that sounds so strange in English that I turned it into a result clause.)

-

Tada! As always, any and all corrections are welcome.

I LOVE YOU GIVE ME A HUG EAT BISCUITS WITH TEA! *explodes*

Yey, it got there in one piece! Amazing! I was so worried! Also, sorry for not being able to make it by Christmas, but I think it's a good start for a new year too!
... Also, now you've made me listen to Baba Yetu after reading the replies, and... I've found it recorded from a different perspective here: www.youtube.com/watch?v=M1SING… ... And... I... I'm just... it's even more beautiful now, is that even possible? It's like light is raining down on us, and it is, thinking of them, and... I can't... I can't even... From 0:34, I thought it's like angels reborn in the light, and their wings spreading and... I lost it in record time. It just gets more powerful every time. And it's so much because of both your writings and comments and the Christmas card got here in the meantime too and it's beautiful, and yes I know, I know I know I know I know we will be friends for the rest of our lives!!!!!!!

(Somewhere here comes the part where I apologize for the lack of coherence.)

(And somewhere here comes that I remember I wanted to mention that of course the titles your wrote have me wondering and... was Annus Mirabilis the one when they, all of them, celebrated Christmas together? And... and I don't have a sensible question about Anima Mundi, because all I can think then is all of them connected by golden threads to a singularity of light, something like an inverse black hole, and the fact that they will actually discover/suspect it by the end of your tale and they will burst into shining.)

Maybe that something we see has something to do with the kindness, humility, wonderful imagination, hardworking nature, mastery of words and the endless reserves of love that must have been brought together to make up a brilliant (in every sense) creature like you? :)
I... I never thought of it that way. Full of time, the box, I mean. Or maybe I did, I just didn't know it. Because there was something unexpected about the outcome. A feeling I couldn't place. It was a good one. This must have been it. And I'm so infinitely glad you feel the same :)

Wow, I'm just... I'm pretty much speechless, having read what you said about the seal? You've sent my mind places. I'm seeing a radiant seal of stars, and the "picture zooms out", and it turns out it's all been within pupils of amber eyes and there is a smile on that same face and also a brotherly carress on its cheek... 

*i did that too before i packed it up for you :) * Wiii!

And now for coherence and your translation: it's almost perfect! Points of possible improvement:
1. cosy: I'm relly not sure what word to use here. If the dictionary says cosy, I'll believe it, but just for information: it's a really emotionally charged word. As in an intimate, familiar, homely atmosphere. Cosy and warm too. And before you ask it, I have no idea how it came to mean that, the simple parts that are put together wouldn't give a reason XD
2. What is a "compulsory change", and the only mistake, is that "az ünnep hangulata meghitt, boldog emlékekben él tovább." should be "the atmosphere of the celebration will live (literally: lives) on in cosy, happy memories". Cosy here already refers to the quality of the memories, it's just divided from happy with a comma because it's an enumeration, not because it's a new clause.
3. Note: calmly use future simple in English translation in situations like the previously quoted one. You've been feeling it right, that is exactly the meaning our present simple is carrying in these places. It's like we just "omit" any word to refer to the future because it's clear from the meaning that we don't only want the memories to live on for a second in the present, but continously for a long time int he future too.
4. Just for reassurance: you got the last part right, don't worry!

I love you too and I'll go make tea now, I've just eaten up my biscuits!

And also: nah, I'm not amazing. I'm just trying to be deserving of your light.
