Updates and Hiatus – end

*LENGTHY POST WARNING*

Hello~ As you may have inferred from the title, my hiatus is finally at an end! Does this mean I shall be finally continuing the Elite you may wonder… well the short answer is no. Rather than bore you with all the details the tech people told me in attempts to revive my dying computer – long story short: I can’t access my old saved sim games & files 😥 I was gutted, but as there are worse things in life, I didn’t let it get me too down.

I deliberated for a while as to whether I should even bother reinstalling the game and starting over anew on my new computer. I mean, after putting in all that effort into making all of those characters and settings for the Elite I was pretty set on not going through all that hassle once more.

So I’ve been binge reading in the mean time (which is why several of you have been getting sporadic notifications from me – I don’t want to completely bombard you all at once therefore I’ve been rotating every few chapters or so between different sites. There are still quite a few I’ve yet to get to, so I shall be doing so soon!) And reading only made me miss writing and playing the game myself even more so….

bear with me…

I’ve decided to make a new story. Gah. There, I’ve said it.

I know, I know. I don’t have the best track record on finishing things, BUT the situation (unlike my previous three stories prior to the Elite) was out of my hands this time. And I knew exactly where I was planning on taking all of them *sigh*. If I find myself with an enormous amount of time in the far future, I may recreate my characters as best as I can and finish those stories, for now; however, it’s too soon to reinvest as must time as I have to remake Irene, Sebastian and the whole lot…

So what does that mean for this new story then? I’ve decided to cheat. That’s right; every character aside from the protagonist, whom I prefer to make from scratch, will be a slightly modified version of a pre-made sim because frankly: aint nobody got time for that. I hate to do it, but you have to take some shortcuts sometimes.

After coming to that decision, I’ve re-installed the game and began experimenting with a story that’s a departure from what I usually write about; I shall be calling it: Sight.

This post has already dragged on long enough so I’ll leave the details as to what else I’ve done in my experimentation for this story in the first chapter. Speaking of which, I plan to publish on Saturdays – starting today.

I hope you shall have patience with me as I begin this new venture, sorry to leave y’all hanging once more XD Hey maybe fourth time’s a charm and this will be the first story I finish *fingers crossed*.

As always, feel free to let me know what you think.
Take care,
xoxo Amy

  1. Yay! Your hiatus is over! *throws confetti*
    Okay, I have to admit that I’m sad that you won’t be continuing with Elite. But I totally understand why you wouldn’t want to go through that long boring process of remaking and recreating. So I’m super excited for Sight! The new simmies look great, I’m looking forward to meeting them and reading their story 🙂

    1. I feel so bad I’m leaving everyone hanging, especially since I’ve been having so much fun working on it and Seb and Irene have had more arguments than cute moments, ugh </3 I hope you enjoy~

  2. Oh noooo! I’m catching up on stories that’ll never get done! Oh well… I totally understand. I’ll still catch up anyway. If only to give feedback that I hope somehow helps! Glad your hiatus is over. Looking forward to keeping up with your new story while still catching up with your old ones. 🙂

    1. I knowww </3 haha I felt terrible reading all of your wonderful commentary (especially for my older much less polished pieces) knowing that you wouldn't get closure for any of them. I'm particularly salty about the Elite not getting completed because that story was actually the one I was most passionate about/most recent *sigh* I still hope you enjoy though~

  3. Oh no!!! It’s such a pity you lost everything (I was really looking forward for Riley to shine lol), but sometimes things like this happen. Which reminds me I have to urgently back up!
    But I’m very excited about Sight, I feel like this time will be the charm 😉 Those sims look awesome! ❤ Now on to reading the first chapter!

    1. I’m so mad that I had to stop writing before I could give Seb and Irene more cute moments and explain Riley’s backstory 😭 Haha I feel like I’ve become a public service reminder to purchase an external drive so you guys don’t have the same experience 😂 Let’s hope this is the one I finally finish, lol

  4. I’m so glad your hiatus is over but I’m so sad that The Elite was lost. How heartbreaking. On the other side, though, I’m really happy you’re going to continue writing with something new and I can’t wait to begin reading it!

  5. Damn! *proceeds to back up everything with fear-fueled adrenaline*

    Okay! New story! Super awesome! Loosing a fantastically writing and very compelling old story! …less awesome…very less awesome. Damn. I’m very sorry for your loss of all that hard work and inspiration. T_T

    But! There’s not much to be done about it, so good on you for seeing the sunny side and forging forward! And from the ashes, the phoenix shall rise
