Staring one of the lovely girls from the Haven who was nice enough to lend her own beautiful likeness:
Riley Jean is one of the few girls at the Rachel's Haven who's been brave enough to show us all images of herself. I asked her if she would like a caption of her own images and she happily agreed. Because it was something unique to my normal captions, I decided to think outside of the box. This is the concept I came up with. I wanted to use as many of the pictures Riley Jean sent me but it didn't fit into the ideas I had. This became the compromise with the design.
The visual is a big part of storytelling here as there is little in the way of description or background. I wanted the screens to look as authentic as possible, so I really worked on those. It took me longer than I would have liked but I was pleased with the final product.
The following paragraphs pertain to something a little more personal. If it's not your thing, you can go ahead and skip on down to the bottom to leave a comment or return when there is more caption content. See you soon. For those of you who read on . . .
On to something less fun; one of the administrator girls at Rachel's Haven is stepping away from the community and departing. I was always fond of Petra and while I wasn't as close to her as Dee, she meant a great deal to me. Her own work inspired me to try some new things with captions and she always had a sweet word to say. Her slipping off to leave is a happy occasion; she leaving on her own terms and it's all for the better so I'm happy for her in that regard. Those of us who know her understand how much she meant to the haven and what she did to keep things going. While she never used her captioning talents beyond the Haven, she created a plethora of work that would leave most girls with gooey feelings inside.
For me personally, it means losing a friend within this little world of fantasy we all share and marks how long I've been doing this. Petra began at the haven around the same time as me and was a star as soon as she stepped into the light. For a good while, I had a lovely little troop of people to speak to around the haven and we all were pretty tight knit. In the time I've been active at the haven I've watched newbies come and go within days of their first post, talented caption creators burn out after a month or so of catching the caption bug, and I've seen others step away and return YEARS later (I myself took time away for almost a year). Most of the times it's without a word or reason why. Often it's something more tragic or sad. Petra leaves us all with a chance to say goodbye and wish her well. We at the haven get to have good memories as she walks off into the sunset in her panties and heels.
I also have to wonder how long I myself will continue. I love keeping up this blog and I still love the escape this brings me, but I know that one day it will end. People move on into other parts of their life and the world brings on changes. I may one day come to the same conclusions Petra did. When it comes, I'll give a heads up. However, don't worry too much about me talking about all of this - I've got plenty of sexy ideas waiting to be done. Evie has been making captions for about a decade and I would love to leave a library of vast sexiness and fantasy to be remembered . . . and hopefully inspire some more sexy dreams.
Until next time, Dolls.
