Ever since I got the idea for gen seven I know I wouldn’t be able to do exactly what I wanted. Because what I want in a few scenes… I literally cannot do in game. Now, I try to limit myself to what I can feasibly do in game though I have had to trim and cut things up a lot to do so.
The problem is…
- I think Zaid’s story would be told better with this part included.
- I will NOT be able to get pictures of this except an occasional close up.
So I’m not sure if I should or not. I know it’s my story, do what I want, but as this is a sim legacy story I honestly have no clue whether I should or not. It would probably be half a chapter to a full chapter (probably a full chapter, maybe even slightly more depending) with only a couple close up shots or maybe one or two not close up shots that I might be able to pull off though it won’t show the full extent of what is going on.
I can trim this up and change it so I could get pictures. It would be the extremely edited version I had been planning on doing when I realized there was no way I could do the full story… which I could do.
OR there is a third option.
I could write it out with mostly text and hardly any pictures, and then start the next chapter up with a slight overview of what happened in the previous chapter and move on with the story, so people who don’t want the full story and just a very quick “here’s what happened” I could do that. What you’ll need to remember though is this mostly-text part would be a huge part of the story. Think of it like… if you’ve seen the Lord of the Rings after the battle of Helm’s Deep when Legolas and Gimli are arguing about their tally. Or in HP7II you just fast forward through the battle to when Harry goes into the woods to face Voldemort. It’d be like, if you didn’t see the battle and went straight to the aftermath/a super important scene.
I just need to know if you guys would be okay with this, or if I should edit this out completely. Because yes it’s my story but I know some readers really prefer having the pictures in. If you’re one of those types of readers, would YOU mind if I have the text bit then do a very quick overview and get back to the pictures?
Please let me know what you guys think. And please know I will take comments into consideration. And I might not go completely with the final percentage, if I feel like enough people would want one thing over another. I just really want to give you guys the full story that’s in my head, but for once the sims limitation is just too much for this.
Thank you! ~sErin
