Sometimes its the innocent ones that get in trouble!
Welcome to 2013 everyone! Seems an awful lot like 2012, though I'm sure it is going to be a great year for everyone I know! I even got new earrings to replace my tarnished old ones. Still the same nipple piercing though, since I'm quite fond of it! Who doesn't love hematite?
This caption is sort of an homage to the captions that Steffimarie used to make. They were usually pretty clean, though there could sometimes be an undercurrent of nasty lying underneath. It even has a redhead photo in it, just liked she used to use. Hell, she could've used this image before for all I know! I just saw the picture, and the story came to me instantly. That whole, "I am NOT wearing this!" and the "so you are going commando underneath?" response echoing from my curious mind.
This caption was posted in a trade folder for Wraithstrike, and one comment I got on it really made me smile. First off, it was from Sarine Davis, aka Belladonna from Fictionmania. Anytime she says something nice, I take note, as she writes some WONDERFUL stories with rich details. Her captions are pretty sweet too, but she is one of those people that can just make long stories interesting. I feel like condensing her ideas is just not doing them justice. Anyway, Sarine posted this in the comment section on the haven:
I loved the dialogue, as always with your work.That made me gush a bit inside. Its making me gush again as I read it. Other than the fact that most of my captions are hard to define, other than "Dee-like" where when you read it, you just kind of KNOW that it was made by me .. I pride myself on making some of the best dialog in TG captions. I'd like to think its what I am known for when people actually think about my work, since otherwise I am more of a "jack of all trades, master of none" captioner. When someone else reinforces that thinking, and its someone I admire, wooohooo, it really gets the juices flowing!
Speaking of, I was nominated for a "Best Caption Blog" award on Courtney's Clean Caps TG blog! Since I forgot to send in my ballot, I KNOW that *I* didn't nominate myself so THANK you to whoever did so. Not sure if there is any actual voting, but being listed against Rebecca Molay and Smitty, Knight and Evie is quite the honor.
Also, for those like Leeanne who wanted to know if I did hit 100k in December .. YES! I JUST creeped over the threshold, with like 100, 064 hits in that month, beating my previous record by more than 7k. Thanks to everyone that helped push me over the limit!
I think I've posted this video before, but I wanted to put it up again for those that may have missed it the first time. When I first saw it as a child, I was SMITTEN with the whole idea of the video/song. Sometimes I wanted to be the "Rambo" character that was changed, and other times I wanted to be the Bonnie Tyler character doing the changing, after having been changed myself previously. Its gloriously 80's music and video, but who said that was a bad thing? Sometimes over the top is just where you NEED to be! Something tells me that Leeanne will LOVE this video!
DISCUSSION QUESTION: When reading TG stories and captions, what seems to be more intriguing to you .. when a character being changed is innocent of any wrong doing or guilty of something and being punished? Are they equal, or do you enjoy one more than the other? How does the characters previous behavior affect the way you read those captions or stories?
