Have a few Formspring "questions" to answer soon, and possibly a blog exclusive caption. Depends on if I want to post it here or gift it to the next Haven eZine which should be coming out in January. At that point in time, I'll also be able to post my contribution to the 1st eZine, since the 6 month exclusivity will be passed.
The caption above was made for Sammie/Serena. I was purposely trying to stay away from a magical caption, and she has preferences that fit both a realistic approach and one that is more abracadabra. I like these type of stories more now than I used to, and I am more comfortable writing them. Compulsion plotlines make me tingle as it is, and having instincts run counter-intuitive to what they used to be, leaving the protagonist on auto-pilot, yet still aware of the way they are acting, will probably never get old in my opinion.
I tried not to telegraph the twist at the end. The whole caption plot came to me as soon as I saw the picture. The ending came first, and I had to work my way through back to the beginning. There was a bit of pruning, mostly in what Nate had done, and the process of becoming the picture. If it went too long, I feared it would lose its emotional impact. I imagine that Belladonna could write a really good story, just by stretching out my skeletal plot and detailing the downfall. I didn't want a full story though, I just wanted a visceral "HERE YA GO!"
I'm glad to see that the views are picking up here. College semesters are over I assume, and people have time to look around the TG blogosphere perhaps? Glad everyone is looking at least!
What I posted in the previous blog entry still applies!
- If you have a TF/TG caption blog and DON'T belong to the Haven, but would like to trade captions, give me a shout-out below in the comments. I didn't realize there were that many people doing captions that weren't a part of the Haven. 99 percent of my captions are trades with others. I always focus better on plots and things when I have someone, and their preferences, in mind. Otherwise my brain is too scatter shot and my ADD kicks in (and people wonder why I can be concise when creating .. its really a lack of focus! LOL)
