    Ohhh that's really interesting! Yeah it's still pretty taboo in this story for someone in charge of either church to have a partner of any kind. Though not much else about it has been mentioned I still think the surrounding town + other Peteran folks are still pretty shocked about it, but not in a bad way, just an unexpected surprise way.

    That makes sense about the androgynous deity. After all, the Sims world isn’t exactly the same as the real world. How I wish job hunting IRL was like it is in the Sims - search online, find an interesting position, click apply and get the job immediately :D No long-winded application form, no interview, no CV… ahh, if only!

    Good chapter!
    I'm a bit sorry that Kat and Aine are planning to not work together anymore, but I see their point. The magic teaching idea seemed very interesting, but also risky of course... Either case, I have the feeling that Aine really needs some good luck to find a job suiting her situation, I really hope for the best for her but I also suspect that the situation could take more complex turns instead...
    Gideon's nightmares are very interesting too, is some witch worsening them with magic or is it purely a sense of guilt? Whatever the reason is, seeing him empathizing a bit with the witches he persecutes definitively made me understand more about the character, as well as his conversation with Reynold at the end of the chapter about what made him choose that career. However, even if he could have become a bit more relatable as a character, I'm still supporting the witches' side :P

    @HermioneSims Thank you so much for your comment < 3
    It may not necessarily be the end of the Kat and Aine team-up though! That's an interesting theory about the nightmares... Oh yeah definitely, I'm with you on that one. Like Reynold said, he can't expect anyone to forgive him- he has to do the right thing for the sake of doing the right thing.

    Oooo... This story just gets better and better!

    Is Gideon about to turn over a new leaf? :open_mouth: I wonder what will happen with that?

    Reynold didn't seem to lose his temper too badly, just raising his voice mostly. His sister's reaction suggests, though, that he has lost it much worse in the past. I'm wondering how she got that scar on her face... Feeling some concern for Aine being involved with him now. :worried:

    His advice to Gideon was good though.

    I am enjoying the complexity of your characters! All have some good and bad aspects to them. They seem very real.

    @GlacierSnow Thank you so so much for commenting < 3 Always good to hear from you!
    Oooh, maybe, just maybe he will! Or maybe he'll go back to his old ways...I'm glad you think so. I'm trying to make things a lot more grey morally in this one compared to my past stories. At the moment, it's hard to know how to feel about pretty much everyone except for Katlego morally speaking : P As for Reynold and Clem, I think it’ll be a while before we get to know a lot more about them both.

    New chapter is now on the Chapter Index. Mostly exposition this time around.

    Yup, that's about the reaction I expected for this chapter : P

    Wow. There is a lot more to this chapter than "exposition". :open_mouth:

    That's quite the confession coming from Bradach!

    I actually had forgotten Aine's father's name, and I am super-bad at recognizing faces, so it caught me doubly off-guard. I was like, "Oh! This is Aine's dad!" and then "OOOH! He did WHAT!?"

    I am really liking Gideon at this point. What an interesting character.

    Also, excellent addition to Clementia's side of things.

    I am enjoying this story so much. Keep it up!

    @HermioneSims I agree! What kind of person does it take to do that? :anguished:

    Indeed. He felt threatened I think by Gideon's honesty, and when someone comes out with a kind of admission like Gideon's it makes you wonder why you can't do the same with what you're hiding. Gideon is a moral mess, but I am having fun writing his character. Haha yeah I was glad nobody noticed him until now because it made it more of a surprise : P I really can't wait to build on things between Reynold and Clem. Siblings are always fun to write.

    As a general note for readers, Act One now has a character profiles page.

    New chapter has been uploaded to the Chapter Index. This chapter is shorter than normal.

    I am nearing the end of my current plan, so later chapters might take longer to come out as I'll have to spend some more time planning what's going to happen next.

    Enjoyed reading as always. Feels like a good place to let the story take a breath for a minute if you need one.
    That werewolf doesn't look like our werewolves! Are you using a mod for them?

    My goodness!

    S. Annorin plotting against Katlego, and Eduardo taking matters into his own hands... :open_mouth:

    Good place to leave us hanging for a bit, while you figure out the next part!

    @mightysprite Thank you so much < 3 And yeah it’s a CC outfit! This one here: https://www.patreon.com/posts/34198430

    @GlacierSnow Thank you so much as always! I figured it was a good place to leave this chapter since I need to spend some time working out exactly what’s going to happen next after those things happening. Trouble is pacing is difficult sometimes since I can’t go too fast or slow considering how long this story’s timeline is going to go on for X_X Also trying to make certain reveals surprising and making sure it isn’t too early or too late to do so… : p

    Nice chapter, and also nice setup for what's coming next! I always tend to be quite impatient when a story goes on break, but I can definitively understand the need to stop and think about the following sometimes ;)

    @HermioneSims Thank you < 3 Yeah, I doubt I will end up on a long break, but given that my work hours are going to skyrocket due to staffing issues, I might end up having to slow down dramatically because this week I have often been too exhausted to write. I don't want to do that, but on top of that I also feel the start of a low-mood spell coming on...It's rare for me to lose motivation with SimLit, but IDK. I just hope I still have time and energy to write cuz I'm having fun with this one.

    I fully understand that, longer working hours can be detrimental to any other project...

    Also:
    Gideon and Kat interaction was quite interesting... Yet, I really hope she can find a way to return back to her home, she doesn't seem to be enjoying her time at the moment...
    Reynold and Aine were very cute this chapter instead, too bad they are planning to move apart in the near future...

    Hmm indeed. Kat is too angry at Annorin to be angry at Gideon, so it's led to an interesting situation. Yeah, it really will be sad that they won't be together for a very long time from now on ;-;

    NOTICE: It's been a long week and the next chapter will be late.

    I love that happy picture of Joyce at the pulpit, looking at peace with her decision <3
    I hope Reynold can step up into his new role! Being an honest, authentic person is important for a religious leader.

    Wordpress is throwing a comment tantrum for some reason, so I’ll just paste my comment here instead. 😁

    Chapter 1.10
    Oh my. Annorin is such a snake, turning the town against her with something that he orchestrated himself, just so he could make a little more money. Sounds awful familiar to many modern situations. I’m glad Gideon is there to at lea- WAIT A MINUTE let the beast do its work?! Is that werewolf Katlego? 😮 Is Katlego the werewolf?! It did seem to have shown up recently, oh my, that puts a whole different spin on things if she is.

    And they all believe Annorin because he’s influential. That’s the real tragedy here, isn’t it? I feel so bad for Katlego. Lost her boat, lost her things, now lost her credibility. And she’s just trying to do good. I’m glad that at least Gideon was there to offer his friendship, and she wasn’t entirely alone.

    Reynold is such a romantic. It’s a real shame that they can’t live together – he obviously wants to be a dad and she obviously wants to be with him. Maybe he’ll change his mind at some point in the future. In the meantime, those screenshots under the moon are gorg- waaaiiiiiiit is Reynold one too? Is that how Clem got that scar on her face? Is that why he’s so worried about his blood passing to his child? 😮

    Chapter 1.11
    Oh dear gods Fancy hair is just going after random women left and right, isn’t he? I hope he ends up meeting that werewolf too. Cordelia definitely won’t miss his attentions *snort*

    Haha, that actually is a pretty short summary, Clara. Lol. Good thing those women were around to find Katlego when they did but how on earth did she end up unconscious in the woods to begin with? I mean, I have a theory now, but I want to see if I’m correct or not, so don’t tell me 😆 Poor Katlego, it’s getting harder and harder for her to trust anyone, even her own people. Hopefully her time in Glimmerbrook will be more peaceful than what happened in Henford.

    Hmm. Susana confessing her secret and Reynold confessing his – those are not equal in weight at all. I hope that Reynold doesn’t end up regretting that. Haha, she sure accepted that quickly, immediately jumping to dragons 😂 good question, though. Does Reynold know any dragons?

    Oh, Reynold. He’s so not ready for the role of Priest and he’s so scared to lose Joyce. Being shoved into something, no matter how gently, that you didn’t choose yourself will end up gnawing at you sooner or later. I wonder how the next few years will look for him. Will he accept his role? Will he try to find someone else to do it instead? Will he be at peace with either option?
