Sight Update

Hey everybody!

I want to say long time, no see, but I’ve technically still been around, just not posting, so that doesn’t seem right… Anyways, greetings!

I refrained from selecting a comeback date and posting several updates like I did during my last hiatus, because that unfortunately ended in disaster with me losing my files and all, so this time I wanted to make sure I was 100% prepared for returning, and I am 🙂 Thanks for being super patient; at last, I have an update for y’all as for the return of Sight.

For the past two weeks, I’ve slowly re-entered the world of simming. Unfortunately, my computer is still the same, so I’m limited in my play time, but excluding the upcoming chapter I’ve had completed before my hiatus, I’ve managed to finish three more. Part of the reason why it is taking so long is because firstly, the first few times I played, I wanted to tinker with all the new CC I’ve added and take some photos. And secondly, the rest of the story entails a lot of new characters and locations that kill so much time to make and incorporate because CAS is a nightmare, and the world editor isn’t so friendly either.

Ideally I’d have liked to finished the entire story before posting again, but I’m realistic, and at the rate I’m currently going it would take a few more months until that happens, and I don’t want to be away for that long… So, I’ve decided I’ll finish at least a month’s worth of chapters, and then continue to work ahead as I post; hopefully without catching up and running out of pre-completed chapters. I might alternate between posting weekly and every other week, which shall kill me because I like to be consistent, but I’ll just have to suck it up, lol, but I’ll cross that bridge when I get there.

As for what else I’ve been up to, I’ve also gone back and re-read everything I’ve written so far in the story just to double check what I’ve included and left out (goodness some of those chapters were long, haha). I didn’t change anything, but I did tweak a lot of grammatical stuff I didn’t catch the first time around like all my time stamps said ‘p.m’ instead of just ‘pm’ or ‘p.m.’ which is such a small thing but bothered me tremendously. *facepalm* So, I went around fixing little things like that, and also reformatted the way some conversations went – as in to say, I broke the dialogue into several lines instead of one huge paragraph because it was just hard to look at.

In a nutshell, I’ve been doing some tidying up of the old chapters for my sake, and for any future readers that my stumble onto them. I definitely don’t expect you guys to go back and re-read what has transpired, although you are more than welcome to, but since it has been so long since the story has begun – about eight months now – I’ve also been working on a recap/summary of the key story events since it’d be impossible for y’all to remember all the little things I want you to. I’m thinking of posting that in a few days, along with some info about the Sight World that have been implied, but not explicitly stated that I want to clarify going forward with the story.

Since it has been so long since I’ve posted, I’m kind of rambling, so bear with me XD I’d also like to mention that re-reading all the tense moments between Caislyn has made me feel more guilty for not making them get together yet, lmao. We are halfway through the story, and nada. I am quite pleased with the way their relationship has come along though; (I don’t know if that’s kind of vain to say since I’m the one who wrote it, lol, oh well) looking back, I wouldn’t have changed anything, as this is more of a supernatural story with elements of romance in it and not the other way around.

When the story returns, there’ll be some loose ends to tie, and since I don’t want to cheat and write a few lines that wrap them up without showing them, that’ll also occupy some space and time, further pushing the Caislyn ship later into the story… As soon as all that is said and done though, their relationship shall finally be underway~

Oh, I just realized I haven’t said when exactly the story shall be returning. I’m kind of all over the place, haha, sorry. Assuming all goes to plan *fingers crossed* Sight Chapter 26, which shall be called Suffocating shall be posted on Saturday, June 9th at 12 p.m. EST, exactly two months after the last chapter has been posted, which was kind of the deadline I was internally shooting for when I first announced my hiatus.

Thanks again for being so understanding as I attempted to/shall still attempt to get my life together. You guys are the best! ❤ I shall be posting those little extras tomorrow at the earliest, and Wednesday at the latest. As a thank you for reading this enormous post, I shall share some of those photos I took when I should’ve been working on the story. They are by no means anything spectacular or elaborate, but I hope you enjoy nonetheless~

Hope you all have a great rest of your weekend! See you real soon 😀

  1. I’m really happy that you have been working on your story! Estimated June 9th, huh? That’s not even that far away! I’m sooooo excited 😀 Before that, I’m looking forward to reading the summary/extra info!
    Oh man, I can relate so much to you about the grammatical mistakes, lmao. I know I still make some, a few unintentional but a few intentional for the writing style heh. I’m the opposite for the posting, though. I seriously commend you for being able to create ahead and post consistently. I’m extremely impatient so my posting schedule is literally all over the place haha.
    I’m kinda sad that we won’t be seeing a proper Caislyn relationship for a while but I mean, more great tension, right? Such nice pictures too, Aislyn really does look nice with that haircut!
    Glad to hear from you again ❤

    1. Aww thanks ☺️ I’m excited to be getting back to posting~ Yup, it’s right around the corner! Lol, when I started writing I was slightly ahead, but seven chapters in I caught up and then it became a cramming session week to week even though I’m sure no one would mind if I fluctuated my posting schedule, haha, I put that pressure on myself 😂😢 I’m also kind of impatient so I have to resist posting all I’ve done at once because I’m excited to share, lmao.
      Yeah unfortunately Caislyn is on the back burner at the moment, but their time to shine is on the horizon 😎 Lots of tension in the meantime for sure :3
      Thank you, I’ve been having fun styling her. Thanks for reading 💕

  2. I’m really excited to have you back! Sorry to hear about your game troubles, though – do you use Nraas’ mods to tidy things up? If you don’t maybe that could help 🙂
    Those pictures are seriously so lovely-looking. I love the hair and the flowery dress for Aislyn – it suits her really well. She looks classy 😀 ❤
    And oh nooooo, even longer before we get Cailean and Aislyn together?! As if it isn't already super hard, haha! 😛 Oh well, at least we probably get some tension. Yes? Tension for us, pls? 🙂
    Anyway, I can't wait to have more of this story. It's really exciting and it's so cool that you've made all kinds of edits and everything. That's dedication! ❤

    1. I’m excited to almost be back 😊 I actually haven’t, I had to uninstall my game so I only have 2 of my million expansions installed and no master controller or any other mods though I used to have some of them eons ago. I probably should get to adding them 😅
      Thanks, I really love that dress – Is it weird I’m more excited to showcase her wardrobe when the story returns? Haha 😂 I’m really trying to push them for sooner rather than later, so we’ll see how it works out… Yes, lots and lots of tension incoming though 😉 Aww thanks I appreciate it ❤️ Thanks for reading~

      1. My old computer had its share of troubles with ts3, though OverWatch and ErrorTrap helped to stabilise it a lot, so hopefully that can help you as well ❤
        It's such a cute dress – I love the creator who made it and I use a bunch of their stuff now! I'm always super excited to show off my characters' pretty outfits, so no – that is *not* weird at all 😀 ❤
        I'm so excited to read your stuff again. It can only be good! 😀

      2. I’m familiar with ErrorTrap but haven’t looked into Overwatch so I’ll definitely check it, thanks 😊
        I just stumbled onto them recently and downloaded so much, haha. I can get lost playing around with outfit combinations for ages 😂
        Thank you 💓💓💓

      3. Overwatch is absolutely the bomb! I couldn’t play on my own machine without it. And I mean that literally – my game would lag too badly without it, haha 😛
        I looooove dressing my Sims, so I feel you on that! 😀 ❤

  3. Woot!! That was a post I didn’t expect to see, but I’m sooo happy it’s in my reader! 😀 ❤
    I can't wait for next Saturday now, this is so exciting!
    Man, I wish I had your discipline – I just pop out those chapters as soon as they're ready and then I'm once again left with nothing! Lmao!! 😂
    I don't mind seeing Caislyn happen later than sooner – I mean the tension is still going to be there so that's good enough for me – for now, lol! But Gus and Kim? I really hope at least those two get it on soon! 😁 ❤
    I loooved your screenshots! Aislyn looks so beautiful with that hair and that dress (amazing dress btw)! ❤
    I can't wait for your next chapter! ❤ ❤

    1. Hehe yay, I was going for the element of surprise 😄 That tactic of working weekly is what burned me out lol, so I’m hoping this’ll be more efficient 😂
      I can say that Gus and Kim have some moments before Caislyn do, lol.
      Awww thanks, I’ve been partying with the CC since I’ve started playing, hehe. Aww I hope you’ll enjoy~ Thanks for reading ❤️

  4. Ooh, it’s nice to see a post from you!
    Haha, you’re so organised! I don’t even know when I’m going to play Sims, let alone when I’m going to post it! I envy your organisation skills and patience, lol! Once I finish a post, I immediately press publish, which leads to a super messy and uneven publishing schedule.
    Although it’ll be cute to see some moments between Cailean and Aislyn (I have to admit, I though you were talking solely about Cailean when it said Caislyn, because their names are coincidentally quite similar!), I don’t mind waiting for it. Having tension between two characters is good so they don’t jump into it immediately and mess it up. I actually don’t know if that’s true though, I don’t even know how relationships work, LOL!
    Aww, your screenshots are so nice, can’t wait to see more in your upcoming chapters.
    Can’t wait for the next chapter ❤

    1. Haha, I wish I could just pick it up and work on it whenever, but my personality won’t let me 😂😭
      Lol, their ship kinda sucks tbh, I’ll never get over their rhyming names 🤦‍♀️
      Their relationship is new territory for me, haha – I usually have my sims start out together or get together fairly quickly… so I’m hoping the payout shall be worth it cause it’s taking forever 😂
      Thank you! 💓

  5. I really, truly love this story, so come back whenever you need to and I’ll be here. I’d rather you spend more time away sorting things out to come back fresh than never come back at all!

    *swoon* Caislyn is just wonderful, even if it’s only pictures. 🙂

    1. Aww thank you 💕 I appreciate it! My goal was to rejuvenate and I now have, so I’m ready to post 😊
      I feel bad it’s taking so long for them, so I’m hoping these pics make up for that 😂 Thanks for reading!

  6. Yey, you’re back. And you will be back with a new chapter in like a week, so that’s super exciting. I feel you on rereading and cringing. I don’t do that, because it’s too painful. 😛 Although I’ve recently been told there’s not a single bad chapter that I’d written, well.. That’s not true, I have a rich source of those, lmao.
    Ooh, Aislyn looks like some geisha in that dress. Love it! And that last photo, damn. I mean, they kissed once, but I guess that doesn’t count because Cailean was sleeping, you know. Waiting impatiently for an encore.
    I plan to finally buy a new laptop around June and I so know what it feels like to have one that’s barely able to handle our beloved game. I once heard that TS3 is the most expensive game ever, as we continuously buy stuff to make it run better and it’s just impossible for it to ever run smoothly.
    Super excited for your new chapter! I missed reading your story. ♥

    1. Yeah, I was surprised at how many things I didn’t catch even though I reread my chapters before posting 😂
      Thanks, I thought it really suited her~ Yup they still haven’t kissed, so until then I shall share these teases 😋
      That wouldn’t surprise me, haha, it’s also known to be a laptop killer after all lmao 😂
      Thanks for reading 💓 I can’t wait to post~
