Sensory Memory

Today's From the Vault I go way back to 2009 and about mid-way through my first trading year.  I had this silly idea that I could create an story one caption at a time, and Dee was really my first test subject on this.  I was also starting to try creating my own stuff instead of relying always on universes.

Love Exchange

According to the most recent poll on the blog, it would seem most of you like the Role Exchanger universe above the others (though Medallion of Zulo is not far behind).  I find this interesting considering I didn't really see Role Exchanger captions back in 2010 when I created this for Rachel (Yes, Rachel of Rachel's Haven).  As I mentioned before, I really enjoy this universe, and back in 2010 decided I would start using it in captions, and created over 20 in a sort of themed series for Haven traders.  Part of me still feels like I had a hand in bringing this universe to the captioning arena, but who really knows...  but it does seem that since I did start using it, I see it a lot more.

I liked the idea of having two couple exchange roles, including the way they felt about one another.  It was an interesting take which I felt worked very well.

Hot for Teacher

A recent creation I made on the Haven as a Pay-It-Forward caption.  I have begun offering a PIF along with my 2fer offers from time to time, which basically means anyone who trades with me can choose a pic for another person in the Haven trading area and I will caption that person.  It's a real treat I think, since I'm not asking for anything in return, they receive acknowledgement from someone else and, in most cases, allows me to branch out as a caption trader.

Lies & Truths

This was created for Terri over the past weekend.  I like doing captions that show acceptance just as much as I like making the 'holy $#!% I'm a woman' captions.  In particular, I really like the way this one turned out, especially since my computer lost the original story and I had to rewrite what I could from memory.  The first draft was better, but you wouldn't know that unless I told you...  which I just did...  dammit.

An early caption for Zefie in 2011, and a variation on my snorg-themed captions.  For those who don't know, I love the combination of t-shirt slogans in a caption.  So much so, that I found a website company that made many nerd/pop culture references on their t-shirts and used them for captions.  Also, I bought several of their shirts.  In particular with captions, I love the use of the t-shirt graphic to tell part of the story so I don't even have to mention it in the caption; instead, I can let the reader decide.

Not About You

Some girls just don't seem to get that when their gender gets exchanged, so does their social roles!  A creation I mad for Tar yesterday in a trade as I am catching up on what I've missed the past few weeks.  Which for my fellow readers means new captions, so yay for you, amirite?

Role Out!

I take no claim to creating the Role Exchanger universe.  I do, however, feel that in 2010, I made the universe much more well known in the community of caption trading.  I ran a promotion on the Haven to create these for folks who wanted to trade for them, and ended up creating near 30 in that time.  This was the first I created for that promotion, and one of the true cases of a Role Exchange.

Hope to resume regular updates next week!

Update 3/6/13

Well, as you can see, I'm a little tied up at the moment.  About twice every year, for maybe two weeks each, real life gives me a swift kick in the pants.  Mostly, this is just an update to let you know I haven't gone anywhere, and better yet, once this project is over with, I suddenly have triple the amount of free time.  So never fear!  I'll have new creations for you next week.

An Engaging Shift

Today's vault feature yet another Great Shift caption, this time for Martha (Who's work you'll find HERE).  For those of us who like bodyswap, the Great Shift is, well, great.  It's no one's fault that you became a woman, and everyone is dealing with the same or similar circumstances.  Additionally, there's something about the randomness of it, which means there are PLENTY of stories that could come from it.  Ultimately, the universe is about new-self acceptance and where you'll go from there.
