Earliest days: Season 1

The very first episodes of Cassidey's story are still some of my favorites. I had no idea what I was doing on a technical side so I did my best to make up for it with the dialogue and I think it still holds up as some of my best. Since then a lot of the direct Skyrim parody elements gradually dropped away and I suppose that's inevitable (since there's really only one way you can make the same joke about silly AI or nonsensical quests) but I still like what I did with that stuff here.

Originally Bat existed just as an exposition dump. I wanted some way to have her explaining her current situation and a paladin's warhorse was an easy choice. He was never really supposed to play as big of a role or be as developed a character as he ended up but people really seemed to like him right from the start so i started adding him in more and more and even gave him his own dialogue.

This chapter was originally split into two parts because I was using LL as an image host and it was just over the image limit (hence the awkward cut to Bat and back in the middle). I really wanted to make the stripping scene longer but I couldn't get the NPCs into the positions I wanted so I eventually gave up. I think "spring break" has become one of the better Cass ongoing jokes and this is where it first started- originally I thought her piercings seemed a bit out of character and wanted a way to explain them (I could have just gotten rid of them but I realllly like that sort of thing ?) and spring break seemed to go with her ditzy, almost sorority girl kind of attitude.

I really like a lot of my dialogue on these next two, especially with the bandit guard. Figuring out how to do the bandit scenes was a nightmare since I didn't even know about tdetect at this point.

This was where bat really started to get a featured role in the story and his personality really started to develop. This is another one that has some of my favorite dialogue still to this day.

This was where I first started to introduce the meta plot that would eventually get out of control. In Cassidey's fight with Vilkas @Tirloque had commented that she was very powerful so the idea of giving her magical gloves that could result in her losing her strength came to me. In these early days of the story suggestions meant a lot to me and I really took them to heart.

Up until this point I had been going back and forth with myself about how "adult" I wanted my story to be and several people in the comments kept asking for me to head in that direction. I think my first attempt at it worked out pretty well and this arc is still one of my very favorites to this day. It also features a very rare instance of GIMP special effects for the open door at the end.

And from there things escalated quickly and pretty sure it was full on hardcore action and we never looked back ?. Cassidey's first "encounter" with Farkas would come to shape a lot of the plot to follow and set up another ongoing joke with his inability to pull out.

So glad you kept these saved and added author commentary. These are masterpieces!

 

Gonna keep these saved on a hard disk... for prosperity.

If only I'd done the same for Astrid's Adventures by pwishy2.

 

I wish you could continue your work, but if you got other priorities then don't worry about it. Thanks again for your amazing stories!

Talk about serendipitous timing 🤔

Beautiful.

It's like a making-of bonus track
