Anyone who's read my caps or have discussed making them with me, knows that my caps are written out in the spur of the moment sort of thing. I do plan some things of course, but that's just to make up the skeleton of what I'm working with. What comes out on the page is mostly just a stream of consciousness that I will then edit if I need to.

The reason for this is because I feel, and this is just my opinion, It helps make the feelings and reactions to the unnatural situations, feel more real. That too is a matter of opinion, but I enjoy it and I feel that If I had to say what my strong suit was, it would be writing out someone's emotions and reactions to natural and unnatural things.

This cap is no real exception to this, but I did refrain from setting up a true ending and I didn't try to filter my self in any way. I did edit the cap here and there to ultimately tighten up the story, but nothing like I do for other caps. I tried to make it feel as if this is really what was racing through her mind with out worrying to much about where I was going.

I hope it paid off, because this could also be a new universe to play around in if It's well received. If I make any more, it would not always be in this style. Though I may revisit it.

Oh, and I've updated my blogs list off to the left hand side of your screen. ^_^

Well, I definitely agree that your best attribute in creating captions is really conveying the "what they are feeling" emotions in a way that is up front and truthful for the characters.

The ability to inhabit that mindset is truly a hard thing to accomplish, and you consistently hit that mark directly.

Not sure I've ever read a Jennifer caption where I said, "but how does the main character REALLY feel?"

I really like this world you've set up. I'd like to find out more about what happens to these gals later on, of course.

Lovely caption Jennifer. Breaking it up between the diary entries and her inner thoughts worked really well. And yes, you do write an inner dialog steam of consciousness better than almost anybody!
