an announcement & some extras

*lengthy post warning* (but when are my posts not? XD)

Hey everybody,

In the last chapter I said an announcement would be out within the week, and to that I say: LOOOOL. In my defense, I did get distracted by tumblr. I was downloading CC and taking pics of my characters for different themes and I quite liked how they turned out, so I’ll share a quick collage, hehe^^

Lookbook

Anyway~ When I finally gave myself time to work on this, I realized that my blogiversary was coming up so I figured I’d do a two-for-one. I’m laughing at my off-numbering since I decided to celebrate six months way back when. So even though it’s been three years, this is blogiversary post #4 😂 🎊

It’s been a minute since I’ve given any updates or side posts on here in addition to just the story, so I shall cut straight to the chase. *insert drumroll* Despite me saying time and time again that Sight will end at Chapter 50, I’m going to have to retract that statement, lol. In a nutshell: Sight is getting extended. This may not come as a surprise to some of you, as in my comments to your excellent speculations I’d say things like “way down the line” or “much later” which would probably come across as odd considering there’s supposed to be five chapters to go. 

In my efforts to work ahead on the story, I’ve actually taken all of the screenshots for chapters leading up to and including #50, and the story is not even close to wrapping up any of the plotlines I’ve got going on *insert awkward laughter*. If anything, you guys will probably have even more questions. I can say there are one or two satisfying revelations, but that’s about it. The rest is just as frustrating as you’ve probably come to expect of me.

If you take a look at my recap pages (I and II which I shall bring up to date soon) you’ll notice instead of saying first half or second half, they now say parts one and two. That’s because after posting Chapter 50 we shall be entering the last third of the story. (Saying ‘first third’ sounds weird, so parts it is!) It actually works out perfectly as the setting in the first part was predominantly Oldmerrow, second was Bayville, and soon it shall be Ravensburg for reasons you shall see~

After posting Chapter 50, I won’t be taking a break or anything. My posting schedule is so irregular there’s no need for that XD Some chapters ended up being so long because I wanted to cram as much as I could in there so I could wrap it up. So, moving forward, they’ll be much more reasonable in length, I swear 😅 That pressure to finish – that I put on myself – will no longer be there. The last part of the story won’t necessarily be 25 chapters as the first two have been/will be. I’ve learned my lesson and will just do what I need to until I’m done. 

I’ve been dragging you guys along for so long, I can’t thank you enough for sticking by me through all of my hiatuses and lengthy gaps of not posting over these few years. It means a lot ❤️ I really, really want to finish this story and will keep saying that so that I can speak it into existence 😆 That’s about it for the announcement, now for the extras!

I’ve mentioned in some chapters that I was saving some of my energy – hence some of the lazy photo taking on my part – for a future chapter. If you’re on tumblr, you know it’s for an upcoming party focused one. An update is I’ve finished it 🥳 That lot was a nightmare even though I really did the bare minimum when it came to decorating, lol. If you’d like to see/read a snippet of it, I’ve shared one here.

Since I did mention I have taken all the screenshots for future chapters – though sorting them is another matter, lol. I feel obligated to share a taste of what’s to come:

Chapter 46: Next Steps

46

Chapter 47: Forgiveness

47

Chapter 48: Under Scrutiny

48

Chapter 49 pt. 1: Things You Already Know

49-I

Chapter 49 pt. 2: Progress

49-II

Chapter 50: The Fundraiser

50

Thanks for reading this, if you’ve made it to the end! That’s about it for the announcement/future of the story/extras. If things go well, I hope to get out a chapter by the end of the week.

Take care,
xoxo Amy

  1. Congratulations on your third year! 🎉❤
    Well, I can’t say I’m surprised, hehe, but the news of extension is good to hear! It just means even more juicy drama and amazing Amy story to read 😌 I was wondering how the story was going to be finished within that tiny amount of remaining chapters because the feeling was that it’s at the beginning of full swing.
    Yay for all the screenshot taking! I’m very, very excited to see what happens and how all the mysteries will tie up in the final part. Let’s 👏 go 👏

    1. Thank you! 🥰 Yeah it was the most non-surprise, surprise, hehe. I really set myself up for failure with that cap because there is sooo much that just started rolling, lol 😂😭 I was surprisingly productive, but of course I already ruined that streak :3 I’m excited to *finally* give you guys answers of substance XD I appreciate it 💕

  3. Just saying, time passes awfully fast when you’re having fun! 🙂 Setting up pictures quand be both timeconsuming and frustrating; the more sims and poses and CC can really be nervwrecking! But your snippets look really good!

  5. Happy – belated – blogiversary!! ❤ ❤ (Man, you reminded me that mine is also coming soon and I have nothing prepared – well, I'll think of something! Maybe a chapter at last? Lol!)
    Anyway, I am so happy that you're still here three years later with your wonderful stories! ❤ Here's to many more years to come! 😀
    I'm so excited about those screenshots and all the things to come! But hmmm, do I see a little stubble on Cailean in one of them? I wonder what happened – surely, it's not there for decorative purposes only… I wonder if he's just tired or there's something else going on… or maybe I'm reading into it too much? Lol!
    Also Aislyn is gorgeous in that last picture! (plus, I love that particular outfit so, so much!)
    I am totally with you on taking the pressure away – this is supposed to be a fun outlet and nothing more; so if this is creating too much stress, then it's better to take a step back! 😀
    That said, I am more than excited for more chapter and to see where you're taking the story (no pressure of course 😉 )
    Again, happy blogiversary! ❤ ❤

    1. Thank you! 😄❤️ Yayyy a chapter *no pressure* hehe. I can’t believe how much time has passed. Aww, thanks. Back at you!
      Yeah, good eye!! Cailean does indeed have some scruff, and not for show. He’ll be having a little bit of a rough time, but nothing too crazy 😇
      I had fun styling her – the other party guests not so much, lol. That dress is really pretty ✨(let me know if you want it – if you don’t already have it!)
      Exactly. I always end up turning fun things into a chore by giving myself deadlines for no reason 😅 This time, I’m going to try and stop that for real, hehe.
      I’m ready to give some answers at last~ Thank you so, so much 🥰
