Here's something I whipped up for a new user on the Haven this passed weekend. Normally, I don't go for surreal type captions with folks I haven't captioned before, but methinks a change I sense. Maybe--to some degree--I've stopped worrying about what somebody wanted and just tried focussing on making captions I am happy with.
A Great Shift cap from 2010 from the vault today. Mostly, I like focusing in on people who decide to take on their new identity as their own. I figure in such an event, after a while you would have several casts of people: those who went nuts, those who faked their identity, those who would try and live their old lives, and other who would accept the way things are. Stronger point was the idea that tastes in romance would shift depending on the body you received.
Here's the most recent of my attempts to make Dee laugh. Honestly, anytime I see a beautiful girl being silly, I want to just hug her... and then write a funny caption! Pretty and Silly in the same picture is with no doubt my favorite combination. Of course, they say a girl can only be two of the following three: Smart, Pretty & Funny. If that's true, I'll take the last two any day of the week, and then argue that it takes courage and intelligence to be funny.
Sometimes I just need to write and get things flowing... Last week led to creating this cap for Maddie, who I feel like I haven't captioned in ages, but more realistically it's just been a few months. She actually provided this picture, and I just wanted to take it in an unexpected direction. Challenge completed?
Today's From the Vault features a caption which I created before I even began trading! This might have been the fifth or sixth caption I ever created (Not really sure what the first one was). I remember long ago I had decided to just write some--mostly to see if I could do it.
So, this is certainly not the first time someone has had this 'idea,' but many of us who enjoy mass swaps look for other methods besides the great shift to do so, many times in an isolated environment. My favorite of these environments has always been weddings--you have a clear cast of characters and numerous combinations of swaps, like this one in which a simple bartender ends up as the bride before the wedding.
If I remember correctly, it was 2011 when Victoria Hyde made her debut around the Haven, and it was right around the time I ran what I called then my 'Hot September' promotion: In which I had promised to post one caption for a different member every day of the month of September. Some were quite easy as I knew them well, but I remember this being the first I made for Victoria. I also remember being pretty damn proud of this one too.
I like--no LOVE--cosplay. Never actually done it myself, but let me tel you there are EXTREMELY talented people at it. And that can only mean great 'live action' photos for caption stories. As mentioned in my disclaimer, I don't own the photo, and in this case I don't own the cosplay either. But it DOES inspire a story.
