Lets hop right into it!
First caption is from Dawn (Commentator) who submitted this one to me via Rachel's Haven where she contributes 99 percent of her captions and does a great job of welcoming newbies.
Next up is Brittany7, from the Haven. Not too familiar with her, but its always fun to have new people submit entries to the DIY Challenge. I hope she enjoys what she wrote for the caption setting and decided to do more. It was definitely a good start!
At the last moment, we have this caption from Helena, who wanted to honor Caitlyn as best she could, so she held out sending it to me until the last moment. I'm sure she'd like it lots Helena!
Lastly, we have Ian's submission. I am posting it twice, as when i first plugged in his story, it stopped at a certain location which I thought ended the caption well. However, I did notice that there was a whole extra paragraph at the end. So this first one is the way I thought it should end ...
And here is the way that Ian originally wrote it. Please let us know which one you like better? It'd make a good topic for comments on how editing can make a caption better or worse!
Thanks to everyone that submitted something to this DIY Challenge. Another one will be coming soon!
Oh yeah, I ended up making one a few minutes ago, while listening to Savatage, which is one of my favorite metal bands of all time. So symphonic that essential they turned into Trans Siberian Orchestra. I used some of the words to one of their best songs, "When the Crowds Are Gone" as I feel it can be indicative of what we do here as creators and readers of TG fiction, and how its a part of our lives. Are our lives a part of the act, or the act a part of our lives?
If you are interested in more from them, search out songs like "Gutter Ballet" , "Believe" , "Edge of Thorns" , "Hall of the Mountain King" . "Somewhere in Time" . "Follow Me" , "This is the Time" and so many more!
