100th Post Special

Hey everyone~
I feel like there is not much else left for me to share about myself or writing since I’ve said nearly everything I’ve wanted to through my updates, tags, challenges, random posts, etcetera… Looking back it’s almost the one year anniversary of this blog; time sure does fly. I had originally intended for this post to be something much longer and grander, but since there’s about a month left until the year mark, I shall push what I wanted to share here, to there, and instead, leave this as a short and sweet thank you to all of you who have been reading, liking, and commenting here ❤

I was recently asked by Lila, around how far along Sight is, and answering her kind of inspired me to divulge a bit more of the story here with y’all since I’ve bumped what I was going to post here initially to my next milestone post. I’ll also share some screenshots that haven’t seen the light of day and tease what’s to come. Enjoy~


First things first, this may seem like a random, unimportant detail, but when I first envisioned Aislyn, I pictured her with short hair; unlike nearly every other protagonist I’ve had with medium to long hair. And if you’ve peeped my relatively new header/avatar photos, then you’ve probably noticed that she’s sporting a shorter do. When I was going through hairstyles and stumbled onto that ponytail (that she often has) I ended up changing my mind last minute because it just suited her so well. Plus, it ended up working into her backstory of being a girly-girl, but of course I thought of that afterwards, lol…

It’s not something super integral to the plot, so I have no reason to hide that she’ll be getting a haircut in the upcoming chapters, which shall be a more accurate representation of how I wanted her to be from the start… So here’s a little preview of how I wanted her to look/how she will look in a few weeks’ time.

Well then, now that that’s out of the way. On to the plot! When I had first started this story, fun fact, I intended for Gus and Aislyn aka Guslyn, lol, to be ‘endgame’, as in they’d last until the story’s end. They were the first two sims I made tweaked from pre-existing sims, and I already had a rough idea of where I had planned to take their relationship…

3

Surprising, right? Well, then Cailean came along and literally obliterated that plan. Most of Gus and Aislyn’s relationship we’ve seen so far has been what I had intended originally, which is part of the reason why it went on for so long. I had planned on making them spend some time apart and then find their way back to each other, but now, they’re on different paths headed away from one another… for good. They’ll still be involved in one another’s lives though. 🙂

6

This is the first story in which the ‘main’ couple hasn’t gotten together either right off the bat, or within the first few chapters… and while I do plan on making them come together, I’m sorry to say there’s still a little ways to go before it happens. Which is why I shall share a cute shot since it’ll be a while before you see any Cailean x Aislyn physicality :p

5

Now, just because Cailean and Aislyn shall be getting together relatively soon-ish, does not mean they shall stay together :3 I’m evil like that and shall let you see how their relationship will go… and who knows, maybe they’ll stick around, maybe they won’t… *insert evil laugh*

7

There are quite a few storylines I’ve yet to resolve, and perhaps the greatest of which is J.D’s past. Don’t you worry, though, his time is coming! Just like Gus’s backstory that took ages for me to incorporate into the story, J.D’s revelation is just waiting on timing…

8

You’ll find out what his name is (I’m curious as to what some of your guesses are – feel free to share them if you have any names that come to mind, if one of you manages to guess right… lol I don’t have any prizes, but you’ll get a virtual high-five XD ) who he was married to, what happened to him, where his family is now if he even has one… etc…

1

That’s about all I have to share, for now, in terms of the formation of the story… It took me ages to get the voice right, and from time to time I don’t even know if I’m being that consistent, haha. Not having to make new covers for each chapter has been a joy since I used to do that for every other story aside from Harmonious and they took FOREVER. lmao, why did I do that to myself? I’ve also been having fun naming each chapter, that’s something I’ve never done before and am quite enjoying.


SIGHTCOVER

I don’t believe I’ve mentioned it here yet, but I’m thinking of having about 50 chapters total for Sight. It could be slightly more or less, but right now, that’s the goal. Which means we are nearly half-way. If you are wondering what on earth could be left to discuss in this story aside from Aislyn’s relationships and J.D’s backstory, well I can give a brief insight…

I’ve mentioned in my last sunshine award post, that I have a character I’m attached to that I haven’t introduced yet. She is fairly important and can be seen above – I’ve hidden her face for dramatic effect, lol. Her role in the story is something I plan to stretch out and delve into… along with figuring out who that mystery ghost that lingers around the DeCarlo’s is, what Aislyn’s first love Tristan has been up to, the whereabouts of Aislyn’s mother, re-introducing the twins that you saw briefly from the book signing, meeting Maddie’s sister, learning why Aislyn got her ability (yes there is a reason!) and a lot more.

Thanks for sticking around, and joining me on this journey. I really hope to work on this story until it’s done. Don’t know how I’ll be able to let these characters go, but thankfully I’ve got a ways to go before I have to think about that.

❤ Thanks for reading ❤
Take care as always~
xoxo Amy

  1. Congrats on your 100th post 🙂 It sounds like there’s a lot of interesting stuff to come in the story 🙂 specifically I’m very interested to hear why Aislyn got her ability – that should be good!
    It’s a bit mean that you’re implying that her and Cailean might not even last, though. I suspected you might be hounded by mobs with torches and pitchforks. I mean, not that I’ll be part of those mobs… *hides pitchfork and whistles*
    Anyway – sounds like it’ll only get better and I can’t wait 😀

    1. I thought so as well~ I think it suits her 🙂
      Yup, I may have been too ambitious when I was planning the story, haha.
      … Yeah, perhaps not :3 you’ll just have to wait and see…

  2. Oooooh!
    First of all, Aislyn looks AMAZING with short hair, it gives her a sort of more grown up look while still being cute.
    That’s interesting about how you intended Gus and Aislyn to be together from the start! Thanks a lot, Cailean >___> Saying that, what the hell??? Him and Aislyn might not stay together??? Even more question marks???
    Okay, I’m embarrassed to say that I literally have ZERO idea who JD might be, and what his past was. I probably missed some tell-tale details in past chapters… I am just guessing he’s a recent ghost considering his hairstyle and clothing, but that’s all. I’m really looking forward to discovering everything about him, and those mysteries you listed (that I also forgot… rip).
    The second half of the story sounds like it’s gonna be a blast, like the first, and I’ll be in for the ride till the very end! Fingers crossed you will get there 😀

    1. Yay, that’s the vibe I was going for 🙂
      Haha, yeah Cailean just came along and messed everything up… yup, like I said, I’m being evil :3
      No worries, I really haven’t given ANY info on him at all. And you’re right in that he hasn’t been a ghost for that long. Those other stuff are just minor things I’ve mentioned here and there without really going into yet partially because since my chapters are already so long, lmao, I don’t want anything important to get watered down/lost in the details, so you’re good XD
      Thank you! I appreciate it ❤ ❤

  3. Congratulations on your 100th post!! 😄🎉
    Aislyn looks extra cute with her shorter hair! I noticed that in that picture she’s got a girlier style going on as well, or was that for photoshooting reasons? Ah, she’s gorgeous nonetheless! ❤
    I could never imagine that you considered Gus and Aislyn as endgame! :O I must admit I really like Gus, but I think I prefer where the romance is going now 😉
    Hmmm JD's name… I will take a wild guess, only because I adore this name and surname: could it be Jonathan Denver?
    The second part of the story sounds like it will be amazing to read, just like the first one! I can't wait to find out all about JD's past, that new important character, Aislyn's mother, and of course see more of Aislyn and Cailean together ❤ (although some Gus and Kim romance will be extremely well received too 😉)
    Congratulations again and good luck on the rest of this awesome read! Looking forward for more! ❤

    1. Yeah, her style shall definitely be more bright and girlie as well, it wasn’t just for the photos 🙂
      In hindsight I don’t know how I would’ve made them last all the way till the end, lol. They are just too different now…
      Jonathan is a nice name, I’ve never heard of Denver as a surname though, that’s unique.
      Thank you! ❤

  4. Congrats on 100 posts! We are lucky to have your wonderful stories. ❤️ But don’t you dare break my ship apart! She and Cailean are so good together. I think she helped Gus figure himself out and become a better person and that was awesome so I suspect they will always have a special bond. But it’s Cailean she needs to be with. I also don’t have a clue about J.D. but I am dying to know! Lol…I think he is somehow related to her. Maybe that’s why he is warm. Just a wild ass guess! Lol…

    Can’t wait for the next chapter! ❤️

    1. Haha, what can I say, you’ll just have to wait and see :3
      Yup, you hit the nail on the head there. They both have changed because of each other and shall remain close because of that. 🙂
      Hmm interesting theory there…
      Thank you! ❤ I hope you enjoy~

  5. Congratulations on 100 posts! I hope there are many more to come 😁
    Aislyn looks so so cute with the short hair, I’m glad you thought of it!
    I cannot imagine Gus and Aislyn ending up together as they just seem so awkward with each other, so thank you Cailean, for appearing! But woah, Cailean and Aislyn won’t stick together? Or maybe they’ll have a rocky relationship and break up a few times, but in the end stay together?
    Ooh, I’m so excited to see what’s going to happen next, it seems like a wild ride! All these different plot points make me buzz with excitement!
    J.D’s name MUST BE Jon Dee 😄 Spot on! I’ll give myself a pat on the back, hehe! No but seriously, I have no clue about J.D’s past, so I can’t wait to find out who he is!

    1. Thank you! I hope so too 🙂
      Yeah… they certainly don’t have much in common.
      Yup, I’m being mischievous :3 Interesting speculation you have there, I shall let you see if it’s right 😉
      Haha I may be slightly in over my head with what I planned, but it’s too late to back out now. XD
      Jon Dee lol, what can I say? Genius.
      It’s sad that I haven’t shared much about him yet, but there’ll be some breakthroughs soon.

  6. I was going to power through just to read the next story post, but I’m glad I stopped to read this post first! Congrats on 100 posts! I loved the insight on the story. Sight is definitely one of my favorite simlit stories I have ever read! Each chapter is a joy to read and all the characters make me want to come back for more. I’m happy to hear we’re only halfway through because I’m definitely not ready for this story to end! I cant believe Guslyn was the real deal hahaha isn’t it funny how a sim or character can inspire you to do something new? I’m dying to see those J.D. wedding shots!!!! God just SEND ME ONE LOL I NEED TO SEE. He looks maybe like a James or Jaime, or maybe a Jeremy? There’s so many J names I’m sure I’m off the mark lol. I have a J name, so clearly J.D. and I are meant to be lol. Anyways, was lovely reading this! Grats again and thanks for sharing!

    1. Thank you! ☺️ Aww I appreciate that :’) ❤️ Yup! Looking back, I cant see that being possible at all. It is! Little things in and outside of the game can be super influential in directing the story, at least for me personally~ Ooh, girl – it’s gonna be a while before they reappear, I can tell you that now 😆 I like your guesses; flawless logic there👌 Thanks again 💕
