It was such a miracle Reporter Smurf not having taken a beating during the ball. [Smurfette] [Big Grin] [Frown]

By the way, I loved seeing Brainy in an angel costume. [Enamored Smurf]

Thanks a smurf once again for the great translation, Vic George. [Graduate Smurf]

The challenging part of this translation was also translating the newspaper text. With both the French and Dutch translations that I have on hand, I had to go back and forth to combine the two in places such as the sports section. Also I gave the newspaper the name Smurf Village Voice, which turns out to be the name of the newspaper in the EMPATH: The Luckiest Smurf story series. The original French name of the newspaper is Schtroumpf A La Une, which translates into "Smurf Main Page".

Here's the fanfiction version of the same newspaper:

Very impressive VicGeorge! it seems you've smurfed another epic translation! [Smile]

I am looking at page 23 and Smurfette nicely said to Reporter Smurf that she had finished her new smurf story and asked him that he could read it. Smurfette saids that all the writing has smurfed her rather tired and she is going to smurf home and rest. Smurfette gets really tired after writing her new smurf story and smurfs home and rest but on the hand, she is really cute and lovely.

"The Reporter Smurf" fan adaptation - Smurfette Quotes

Ahem...Reporter Smurf?

I've just finished my new smurf story for the newspaper! Could you read it?

Excuse me if I don't smurf here longer, but all this writing has smurfed me rather tired! I'm going to smurf home and rest!

Goodnight boys!

Who is the Smurf responsible for this fabrication of lies?

WITH PLEASURE!!

Tell him to smurf my private life out of his newspaper, if he knows what's smurfy for him! If he wants to smurf his romance novels, he can smurf them without using me as the star!

Oh, I can't wait to smurf the heads that will turn from smurfing me in this! Never have I smurfed so beautiful in anything!

I thought I smurfed something outside! Some kind of noise...

Huh! It's probably just my imagination smurfing tricks on me! Still, one can never be too careful!

So we understand each other, Tailor Smurf? Not one smurf about this new dress, or else I'm smurfing for a new designer!

He he he he! What a wonderful surprise I'm going to smurf!

Why, hello there, Handy Smurf!

"I'm smurfing forward to it..."?!? I wonder what he could possibly smurf by...

Okay, what's with all these mysterious phrases that I'm smurfing from you Smurfs? What are you smurfing about?

Reporter Smurf keeps smurfing around my house, Papa Smurf! You really can't smurf anything about it?

Yeah, sure, I understand!

Have you been followed by any Smurf?

Oh, thank you, Chef Smurf! With Reporter Smurf always smurfing after me, I dare not leave the house!

You're my knight in smurfing armor!

Smurf you later!

WAAAAAA...

Sniff, sniff, boohoohoohoo...

My life has become a living smurf, Papa Smurf! I can't smurf anywhere, smurf anything, or even smurf a single word without the entire village smurfing about it immediately and smurfing it all out of context!

I have to smurf at home all the time, all because you Smurfs can't stop smurfing that stupid newspaper smurfing those false stories about my private life! Boohoohoohoo...I am so unhappy...

Coward!

GARGAMEL!

Uuuhhh...I smurf so terrible...it's like...I have a smurf in my stomach...

The Reporter Smurf

The Reporter Smurf is a comic book story that was created and published by Studio Peyo in 2003.

The story begins with Reporter Smurf witnessing Fisher Smurf having a bad day of fishing when he gets caught in his own tangled-up fishing line and falls into the lake. As he returns to the Smurf Village, Fisher tries to save face with Farmer Smurf by telling him a harmless fish story, which he then tells to Handy Smurf, which he then tells to another, which Vanity Smurf overhears. However, along the way, the fish story gets turned into a fantastic story about Fisher Smurf fighting a monster at the bottom of the lake, which Reporter Smurf ends up hearing and starts questioning the veracity of the story.

Reporter tells Papa Smurf how disgusted he is about how true stories get so distorted as they pass from one Smurf to another, and so decides to make it a mission that he would report only the truth so that the Smurfs would get the facts of the story straight. To that end, he begins by posting his news reports on the village bulletin board, only to find that very few Smurfs have the time or the desire to read the reports from that location. He tries creating hand copies of the reports that he could pass out to the other Smurfs, but not only does that become time-consuming (and prone to accidents with ink), but also he could only create a few copies at a time. Moreover, Chef Smurf uses his copy to light a fire in his oven, Hefty Smurf uses his copy to cover over a puddle that Smurfette walks across, and the third copy is destroyed by two Smurfs fighting over who will have it.

Reporter turns to Handy with the idea of a machine that could create as many copies of a writing as possible so that every Smurf would be able to read his news reports. Handy laughs at the idea at first, but then he sees Baby Smurf making prints with his toy blocks in the sand and so comes up with the idea of the printing press, which he then shows to Reporter after it was built. Soon with Greedy Smurf manning the press in exchange for his being able to use it as a large nutcracker, Reporter brings forth the first Smurf Village newspaper.

At first the paper has a slow and rocky start as Reporter tries to bring the level of his articles up past the point of telling the same old stories that everyone has heard. However, after witnessing and reporting a fire at the Smurf Village storehouse, which a few of the volunteers of the Smurf firefighter brigade, Clumsy and Lazy, had failed in their jobs trying to stop, the newspaper finally starts selling out all its copies in a day. Reporter then gets himself a new reporter's hat and a tie from Tailor Smurf so that he would be able to go anywhere to get the latest story.

Immediately after getting the new clothes, Reporter hunts after a new story when he sees Handy and Lumberjack Smurf go to the village dam to talk about the leaks in it. Overhearing the two Smurfs saying that they plan to do nothing about the leaks and not even mention this to the other Smurfs, Reporter immediately takes it to the press room, and soon Handy and Lumberjack are greeted by the news of their silence gone public in the newspaper. Papa Smurf, who is also aware of the dam's problems and knows that the situation is not serious, tells the two scandalized Smurfs to go home and keep their heads down while he deals with the matter himself with his little Smurfs. But no sooner do they leave Papa Smurf's house, the newspaper readers spot the two Smurfs and give chase to them, ready to have their heads.

From that point on the paper continues to become more successful, even with additional features such as horoscopes, romance stories, sports reviews, weather reports, and also a comic strip. But it eventually reaches an impasse with Reporter Smurf as he finds himself with nothing more to write about. Then after an encounter with Smurfette delivering her latest story for publication, Reporter comes up with the idea of having the question of who "Smurfette's secret love" is be front page material. This starts a very long and painful ordeal with Smurfette as Reporter is now snooping into her private life and making it public knowledge. Papa Smurf tries to step in and get Reporter to stop with the snooping, but he ends up being forced into doing nothing about it when Reporter makes a charge in the newspaper that Papa Smurf has become a dictator. It gets worse as Reporter spies on Chef Smurf making a secret meal delivery to Smurfette and sees her give him a friendly kiss, insinuating that Chef Smurf was actually "Smurfette's secret love" -- something that drives Smurfette to tears when Brainy Smurf makes a harmless mention about Chef Smurf not escorting her to the ball of the full moon.

After the readers of the newspaper decided they would no longer support Reporter making Smurfette's private life public, the newspaper readership has dwindled. Papa Smurf has a talk with Reporter to remind him why he came up with the idea of the newspaper in the first place, and during the talk Reporter is inspired to do something really daring: he would go to Gargamel's castle and spy on the evil wizard so that the Smurf Village would know of his plans beforehand -- not to mention have it appear in the newspaper. Inside the wizard's lair, Reporter is caught by both Gargamel and Azrael and put into a cage, where the wizard finds out that the Smurfs would believe anything he would write up in his paper.

With that in mind, Gargamel misleads Reporter into believing that he has come up with a potion that would allow him to find the Smurf Village without their help, and all it takes to ruin the potion is a sarsaparilla leaf. Also the evil wizard purposely leaves the key to the cage within Reporter's reach so that he could use it and escape to the village to spread the false information. Although Papa Smurf isn't convinced of the story Reporter comes back to the village with, a good deal of Smurfs believe Reporter's words and return with him in the middle of the night to Gargamel's castle in an attempt to foil his plans. However, it turns out that the wizard has actually created a glue which he spreads on the floor and captures the Smurfs sneaking into his castle.

Reporter, the only Smurf that Gargamel hasn't captured, returns to the village to tell Papa Smurf the truth of what's happened. Papa Smurf then comes up with a plan using Reporter's skills and his printing press. By the following morning, Gargamel wakes up to find a copy of the village newspaper inside his door with a front page article about an illness the Smurfs were carrying that could turn humans that come into contact with the infected Smurfs into toads. Gargamel doesn't believe the article he is reading, but then he sees that the Smurfs in the cages all have green spots on them and are acting sick. They notice something wrong with Gargamel, which makes him look into a mirror and gasp in horror as he sees red pustules have formed on his face. After further reading of the article that says the only cure is to quarantine himself within hours of exposure before the transformation is permanent, Gargamel lets the infected Smurfs go free. After they escape to the village, it is revealed that the red pustules on the wizard's face was actually paint and he had been fooled by the Smurfs again, who were simply coated with spots of green paint.

Some days later, Papa Smurf notices that Reporter Smurf has hung up his reporter's hat and has also stopped publishing the village newspaper. He says that the Smurfs have learned from this that they can't always believe everything that they hear...or so he thinks, as he hears even Papa Smurf talk about something that he heard about Lazy Smurf at the end of the story.

I only have the digital copy on Kindle, and resizing it makes the quality of the image deteriorate.

Then can you at least post the interview with Luc Parthoens about the story? (and maybe post part 1 of the story "The Flute Smurfers" in a new topic).
