Winner of Boolprop’s Annual Golden Plumbob Awards:
Best Sims 3 Challenge Story (2012)


Sims 3 Forum



Splintered Sun is a Differences in the Family Tree (DITFT) challenge.

It is a serious, mature and story-driven attempt of the challenge and, with that in mind, I was to be absolutely clear that there will be adult content, including sexual situations, drugs and violence. Please bear this in mind before starting to read.

I was inspired to start Splintered Sun after reading two wonderful DITFTs: A Rolling Stone Gathers No Moss and Let It Be. If you haven’t already read them, I recommend you do. :)

I will try and update as much as possible, and will do my best to keep you guys informed about any delays! Bear with me!

Without further ado, I hope you enjoy reading this story as much as I enjoy writing it! :)

Emy xx

  1. Ooh, a new legacy! I’m excited for you to start writing this now =3 Bring on the DiFT! =D

  2. ^-^ Glad to see you trying out DITFT. I can’t wait to see what you come up with.

  3. Dreamy Underwood

    I’m sorry if this insults you but are you MAD? I struggle with the Woods and working on the Crumplebottom’s but you have 3 now.

    • Emy

      I probably am mad, yes. :P But I’ve wanted to do this for a long time, so I think it’ll be all right. XD Especially as it’s the summer now.

      • Dreamy Underwood

        Yes, I know I’m working on the Wood update as well. Also adding this to my bookmarks now and will probably go onto my Legacy Links quickly.

  4. Make sure to post it so I can read it. Cant wait :D

  5. I haven’t read your other stories – but I’ve wanted to – and thus, I’m actually quite excited! I’ll get to start reading from the beginning now which is awesome :) So best of luck and I can’t wait to see when you start posting!

    • Emy

      Aw, yay, thanks. :D Even the fact you’ve -wanted- to read my stories makes me happy. :D

      Hopefully I’ll be able to start posting soon. ^^

  6. Saw this in my newsfeed on facebook, how exciting. Can’t wait to give this a read. Should be pretty awesome ;)
    Oh and thanks for the link to my blog.

  7. You have no idea how excited I was when I read this! I love the Dreams, so your writing combined with my favorite Sims challenge is enough to have me hopping with gleeful anticipation. ;)

    I know what you mean about feeling like you can do better. I feel that way about my updates all the time. Btw, thanks for mentioning RSNGM! I’m honored. :)

    • Emy

      Aw, thanks. :) I’m very excited because I have plots forming in my head. It’ll be nice to have two serious legacies with different plot lines going on. ^^ Plotting for one all the time can get a bit much. XD

      And you are very welcome! RSGNM was the first DITFT I read so it’s very significant to me, along with Let it Be! :D

  8. Lilith Kawanami

    Can’t wait!!! All your legacies are great, and I know this one will be too!!! Now hurry up and post the first chapter!!! :D

  9. Goatster96

    Ooooh, I can’t wait! I have stalke-erm, “read” both of your other legacies, and I love them both. This one looks like it’ll be fantastic once it gets going. :)
    And Gabriel… wasn’t that the name of Isaac’s brother? Any relation, or was it just a random choice? :D

    • Emy

      Hey, thanks!! :)

      Hehe, I wondered if anyone would notice that. XD Actually, it’s my favourite guy’s name, so he actually has no relation to Isaac. ^^; Well done for remembering though. ;)

  10. I also look forward to a post! I barely find time in my day to work on the Simopolis family to get updates out, so thumbs up for you! Happy Simming!

  11. Nightrain17

    Ooooooo! I like the header! And lol I’m critical too, always so critical. It’s why I can never finish my novel because I keep rewriting it DOH!

    Caaaaakee caaaaakeeeeee ^^ Rainbow!

    • Emy

      Aw, man, I know that feeling. My poor novel. It lies abandoned for now because I don’t feel confident enough yet to rewrite it. One day, though. :D

  12. Prettyone27

    Realleh luuurves :)

  13. Hi. I’m a big fan (been reading since chapter three, I think) and I love what you’ve done with Gabriel. He’s so understandable, and your plotline is incredible.

    I have a little baby legacy (rathnaitaniketos . blogspot . com) and I was wondering if you’d maybe link to me? I’ve already linked to you!

    • Emy

      Aww, thank you!! :) It’s always nice when people tell me what they think!! <3

      I had a read of your story and really enjoyed it – you have a great idea there! I added your link at the side under 'Stories'. :) <3

  14. ‘Ello!

    Just me, popping in to tell you that Chapter Six of Nait is up. xD Okay, bye!

  15. ‘Ello!

    There’s a new chapter of Nait. Felt like reminding you, because it’s been about a week since the last one.

    Also, I have Nait/Gideon/Rowan/Bree up on the Exchange now. MWAHAHAHAHAHAAHA. Heh. xD

  16. Em

    I know what you mean by reading it and knowing you can do better, it doesn’t sound arrogant at all, I always feel the same.

  17. Hai!

    I. Can’t. Wait. For. The. Next. Chapter. It’s driving me a little bit crazy! xD Anyways, there’s a new chapter of Nait up. /botherbother

  18. Hola.

    Chapter eleven’s up.

    Enjoying university? xD

  19. *waits around for new chapter*


  20. Heeeeey Emy! :D I’m going to be starting a ISBI and I was wondering if I could snatch up your simself? ;) I always like to ask before I do things, just to be polite! ^_^


    • Emy

      Ooo, you’re starting an ISBI?? That’s cool! :D

      Of course you can!! :P You might have to change her skin (I use LFB naughty) and possibly her hair depending on what style I gave her, but yes. :)

      Here’s my simself, I can’t remember if I’m linked anywhere else: http://www.mediafire.com/?utpdgjidfftn6xp

      • Is her skin one of those types that eat my other skins away? XD I can’t even remember what I use, but it makes the sims look purdy :D

        Yaaaay! Thanks so much Emy! ^_^ I think I saw another simself of yours on your sims 3 account? Hey by the way, do you know how to get rid of those custom skins that are sometimes attached from the exchange?? It drives me insane with it eating my other colors ;-;

        <3 *hugs*

        • Emy

          No, it’s a default replacement skin so it shouldn’t be attached and shouldn’t eat your skins. She’ll just be black. And I think there is one of me on the sims3 website, but it’s an old version.

          I’m not sure how to get rid of custom skins you get off the exchange. :c Maybe by uninstalling the sim you got them from? I have so many non-default skins now it takes me forever to scroll through them all, haha. I don’t know why they eat yours – you should just be able to scroll down. :c

          You’re welcome! :)

  21. Hey there! Sorry to jump in. Care to take a peak here and, if you like it, let me know if you agree to add me to your blogroll? I’ll do the same. (I need readers and I fail at advertising) :( Thank you!


    A fellow Simmer :)

    • Emy

      Hi, sorry it took me so long to get back to you. I must have missed your comment. :) I’ll try to read your legacy when I have some time!

  22. Amy

    Seriously… You are amazing Emy <3 I love your writing… Here's a quick note from myself…
    I just wanted to comment to tell you that I have a new chapter. I don't mean to bother you, I just thought that I'd let you know since it's been sooo long and I saw that you had commented on my last one <3 I hope that you have an amazing summer :) Love,

    • Emy

      Hi, Amy! :) I saw your chapter pop up in my inbox today, so don’t worry! :D I’m planning on catching up on my reading when I’ve got my new chapter out (hopefully sometime this week). Thanks for the heads up! <3

  23. Hey, KrazyK here! :^) and I really love your work! I can’t wait for the next chapter to come out. I was wondering if you got the time to stop by my page and read this story I posted up?
