Sweet and Innocent Dee ... Bwahahahaha!
For some reason, I've got this reputation as someone that doesn't really get too extreme in their captions. I admit that I am not often a purveyor of smut, but I think the subject matter themselves often veer into some over-the-top moments. I wonder if my love of puns and not-so-clever wit end up making people underestimate my capacity for kink.
Whenever I tend to go extreme, I often use semi-normal pictures, and make the subject matter more intense. That way, people might not expect what is coming, and it ups the ante when the payoff strikes. Even someone that knows me well, like Petra, seems to be a bit shocked when I get into the gutter occasionally.
Here is a caption that I think is indicative of what I mean by an extreme caption with a relatively normal picture. Who am I kidding?!? It is a creepy picture but there is no real prurient nature to it. However, I took that creepiness and made what is perhaps my most directly disturbing caption I've ever made. Not sure I will really top it, and not sure I *want* to either. Luckily for me, Dave loved it.
Why am I bringing this up right now? Well, its mostly because Davewashere25 made me a caption recently, and I seem to be at my most Dee-vious when I am making captions for him.The above captions were all made for him, and I figure I will have to get in that mindset to make a return caption. I'm not there right now, so I am going to have to get into that mindset. When I do though, you really have to watch out. I think that is when "Mistress Dementia" really comes out to play.
DISCUSSION: Do certain people bring out different moods when you are capping for them? How do you get into the mindset to make a caption for that person, knowing what they like? I tend to find some pictures that fall into their preferences and see if I can FEEL the mood of those images, and let it feed me ideas, hoping I can get into that zone to let the story come out to its fullest, without me putting my judgement on it. How well are you able to let your mind wander out of its comfort zone?
