This caption was hella fun to write. (Did I just use the word, 'hella'??) Come on inside!
Crap. I have to make another post? But I just did one last night and no one commented! Ok, it got 4 likes in 24 hours so here we go! Please read this caption first before moving on.
Made this one for Olivia Lovely on the Haven, whose been making some fun captions and been commenting here somewhat regularly. Since she had been popping up here, I saw this picture and knew it would be up her alley .. and honestly, anytime you can occupy teeange girl head space, you do it full force! A bit of this was inspired by a TG AR short story workup I made a few weeks ago that I'm sure Courtney from Courtney's Clean Caps would craft into a great fiction book .. but from that, the caption went in a way different direction.
Once again, I was grinning ear to ear as I wrote the sister's conversation with their mother. At first, I thought that the sister had done all this to her brother but then by the 2nd paragraph I was like, "James Bond villains aren't this detailed!" so I thought, "what if this was all HIS idea!" and how awesome the reveal would be. Start off fairly restrained, I mean, the scenario COULD happen .. but by the time they get to the whole amnesia angle, it's obvious that she's manipulated him with hypnosis or whatever .. then whammo, this was his choice all along!
The hardest thing to do was pull it full circle. I knew that she was pretending to be the ditz all along. I mean "orthopedic school" as a dentist? Then I looked at it again and was like, "hmm, he probably WOULD have to learn how to sound like a girl, Let's close with that!" and that wrapped the story, and her hair, into a nice pink bow!
Any other questions you'd like to ask me about the creation of this caption, from the setting, to the balance of the dialog, what choices I made in design, plot points, how it was resolved. Fire away! Want to discuss if they are going to get away with the scheme, go right ahead! I am amped about this one and would love to engage others about it too. I'll do the same for the last post as well!
This is one I like to do at Karaoke as the first number. People love the song and then I set them up to think I always sound like that, then I can cross them up with something in the upper range at the end, like "What's Up" by 4 Non Blondes. Duplicity! Always keep them guessing!
