Sometimes IT DOESN'T PAY to be gallant!
Hard to believe that I made this caption over four years ago for Emily K, one of the many people that used to be productive members of the Haven. I just checked, and the account hasn't logged in since January of 2009. I hate to think that at least half of my captions are languishing within trading folders that have been inactive for years now. I guess I should post more of them here, interspersed with newer ones that I've just created. They lack a bit in style, but the "Dee plotlines" are fully evident, even if they are much more fleshed out than my current work.
The picture called into play a boy dressing up like a girl, even though its a female .. well as far as I know its a female. I am not sure if I colored the hair red to make it look more like a wig or if that is the way I found it .. many of my early captions no longer have the original photoshop file so I can't check or even fix a spelling error or two. From there, the idea formed almost fully, working on how much devotion the boyfriend had for the love of his life. I definitely love the whole plot and story.
I am so glad people like Smitty keep putting out captions. I'm also glad that Jennifer is back to posting almost every day. I am missing some of the other headline captioners like Caitlyn, Simone, and Britney. I notice that when they are active, I get more visitors. It sucks that with Halloween around the corner, they aren't cranking out some vivid captions reminding me why this is my favorite time of the year. I can get a bit of my fix at the last time ever, Halloween Caption Contest at the Haven, but since I'm the admin overseeing it, I don't feel its right for me to comment, lest someone thinks that I would be influencing the outcome or throwing support to one particular person.
I just might wander off into those abandoned trading folders of the Haven, and see what treasures I may have missed the first time .. like Lara Croft, finding hidden relics to enjoy once again!
I so wanted to be her when I was younger .. well, when I wasn't wanting to be Cyndi Lauper!
