hi, i'm not a latin student (though i hope to someday be), but i was wondering if you guys could translate this line for me? i think it's from ovid's elegy viii.



Tu periurare timeto -- commodat in lusus numina surda Venus

I'm a new user. Please, please correct me if I err, implicitly or otherwise.

So, ignorantly enough, I'm just going to refer you to the context (in translation) of the line here - http://www.sacred-texts.com/cla/ovid/lboo/lboo14.htm - and tell you that your line is line 85/86 of the Latin and this line - "... fear not to forswear thyself. Venus makes the gods deaf to the plaints of the deceived lover." [paragraph 5, line 6-7] of the translation.

It's also in the tenth chapter of "Stealing Harry" by samvimes (HP fanfic sirius/remus we are told will happen in later chapters, however it is a very cute story up until then, if you are adverse to that sort of thing) Remus quotes it.

What I found funny was that I searched the web high and low without a single inkling what the Latin phrase meant, and then I see a tiny little link on some livejournal account that leads me to all the answers. Love the pic, by the by, volatile.

You referred to Stealing Harry. What website did you find that fanfic on? I found it at one point and started reading it, but I never got to finish it, and I can't remember what site it was on.

Fictionalley.org is where I'm reading Stealing Harry on.

And thank you to volatile51 for the translation, I found it the same way.

that wasn't the site i found it on. i went back through my bookmarks and found that it was mislabeled. i found it on http://copperbadge.fanficauthors.net/Stealing_Harry/index.php . leads directly to the index page.
