Áine is lucky enough to be born in the midst of the witch-hunts, and she doesn't understand exactly what is going on until she sees the horror for herself as a child. Not too long after her twentieth birthday, she leaves her childhood family home to head elsewhere to start a new life- a much more difficult job when you are constantly having to look over your shoulder for people who want you dead. Áine is determined to try and make change within the community, and is determined to protect others like her from the ever-looming threat of the witch-hunters- no matter how many life-changing events come her way.

    @GlacierSnow Thanks so much!
    I'm not sure when the next chapter will be yet- probably next week, hopefully at least.

    @SnowBnuuy

    Wow, poor Áine having to see that witch-burning happen. That’s bound to have an effect on her as she grows up.
    I’m guessing you may know this already, but the name Saoirse means freedom, which is what all witches want; the freedom to be themselves without judgment or fear from others.

    Ooo. Fascinating start to the story. I'm worried for Aine and her mother now. I'm hooked.

    Thanks @Lucy_Henley and @GlacierSnow < 3
    Ohh no I didn't know that actually! I just picked the name Saoirse because it sounded nice : P but that gives it an extra unintended level of meaning which is great!

    Saoirse seems to be a fairly common name for Irish Sims, it seems! I have one in my Sulani save. Maybe it’s somewhat influenced by the actress Saoirse Ronan, like we think “hmm, what’s an Irish girl’s name?” and we think of her. There are loads of great Irish names.

    @Lucy_Henley I had to Google who that was, I seem to know nothing about anyone XD
    I looked up Irish baby names for the mum and dad's names, but it's such a beautiful language it was hard to just pick two names out of the bunch ;-;

    A new chapter has been uploaded and has been added to the Chapter Index. The new chapter is the end of the Prologue.

    I'm back to work on Sunday *sobs* so don't worry, chapter updates will slow down to weekly or biweekly from then on. I also need to actually do more story planning since I don't have as much of this story planned out as I should ^-^'

    Áine looks so pretty as a teen/young adult!

    And yeah, there are loads of good Irish names out there. Sometimes pronunciation can be tricky, though, so I often look up how to pronounce them so I’m saying it right in my head. And some of the names have different pronunciations depending on which bit of Ireland you’re in. For example, Saoirse is either “ser-sha” (like in fur) or “seer-sha” (like peer). The Saoirse in my game has a twin sister Aisling, which is either “ash-ling” (the most common), “ash-lin” or “ash-leen”. Pretty confusing!

    This story has been interesting so far. Younger Aine looks gorgeous!
  • HermioneSimsHermioneSims Posts: 245 Member
    I finally managed to read chapters 2 and 3! Áine for sure had a very difficult childhood, and I have a strong feeling that her situation won't improve anytime soon... I'm a bit sorry for her, but also very curious in seeing what happens next!
    The graphical aspect is really impressive too, both for the posing and picture editing side!

    @Sims4MagicalTales Thank you! I know, I love her so much < 33
    @HermioneSims Thank you! I'm glad you like it < 3
    You've read enough of my stuff to know things don't often get better XD
    I'm glad you like the screenshots as well. It can get stressful doing all the screenshots but it's good fun most of the time!

    I like Reynold as a character a lot, and also the Peterans as a monastic order. They really look very moderate and free to live their own lives outside the monastery compared with the contemporary friars and nuns I'm used to, to levels that here would almost be seen as scandalous... And I'm liking it a lot B)

    Just getting caught up today. This is an interesting chapter!

    The addition of Reynold's POV makes me hope that he will be a continuing character in the story. I like him, and find his thoughts on his beliefs and the people he interacts with intriguing.

    @HermioneSims @GlacierSnow Thank you for your comment < 3 I really appreciate hearing from you both. ~

    HermioneSims:
    I'm glad you like them < 3 I am making some changes to the Peteran and eventually Jacoban orders from the original Sims Medieval lore, since some of it is a little too close to my liking to existing beliefs. You're right on the money there, the Peterans are a fairly free-living bunch for the most part. There isn't much in the way of rules other than 'be kind to others', 'help those in need' and 'try not to slap anyone no matter how tempted you may become to do so.' XD
    GlacierSnow:
    Oh yeah don't worry! I'm glad you like him < 3 He'll be one of the main characters, definitely. He's pretty different to most of my characters, who are mouthy and chaotic so he's fun to write but sometimes challenging since it's outside of the box for me : P

    Excellent chapter!

    I'm very curious about the new introductions (Katlego and Susana). Reynold sure seemed uncomfortable when Susana showed up, so I'm wondering who she is to him.

    Katlego seems cool. And funny. I liked her "try to come up with a good ship name" notes. :lol:
