Sissy Caption - I Didn't See You There

I am extremely proud of this particular photo modification - it's probably one of the best I've done so far.  

This is the original picture:

Sissy Caption - Birthday Presents

This caption didn't turn out as well as I'd hoped.  I had high expectations after I finished the photograph, but the story (in my opinion) didn't quite live up to that.  It felt clumsy to me.  However, it's still good enough to post, so I guess there's that.  Hope you like it.

Feminization Caption - Commitment

In the past, I've run into a problem with the way I write.  Or maybe it's not necessarily my issue, but rather a perception thing. Let me explain.  In my mind, I make a clear distinction between the author and the characters in my stories.  Sure, there are elements of my personality in the majority of them, but, in the end, they are wholly different people.  Usually, that's not that huge of a long as the character has nice things to say or do.  However, when I write villains (as in the Omar Bell Universe), people have a hard time separating my views from that of an antagonist I created specifically to be evil (or wrong, etc.). 

Anyway, I wrote this caption from the perspective of a typical "These kids today," type of person.  I hope it doesn't turn any of you off.  Either way, I'm proud of the photo modification at least.

Tribute Caption - The Other Side of the Coin

Sometimes, I employ my humble talents to create what I consider Tribute Captions in which I pay homage to other people's work that I find interesting.  It's usually pretty difficult - adapting my own style to reflect another person's isn't really in my comfort zone.  So I don't typically do it that often. 

However, every now and then, I find a photograph that just screams "Tribute" to me.  And this is one of those times. 

I don't even know where I found the picture, really.  But when I first saw it, I thought Rythaleon's Quest (from Male Protection).  The series is based on the art of Barry Blair. I'm not sure how much of it's modified, but Chirenon's work with the story is fantastic.  The presentation is great, and I really, really enjoy it. 

That said, I decided to add my own little piece to the growing mythology surrounding that world.  I hope it's up to par.

This is the finished product:

And this is the source photograph:

As you can see, I did a LOT of work on this.  I hope you all appreciate it as much as I enjoyed making it.  I considered throwing a "protector" (a chastity device) on the elf, but I felt that the it would have ruined the effect of the picture.  Either way, it's not my best work, but I'm still quite proud of it.

Multiple Caption Sissy Story - The Bachelorette Party

One of the things I enjoy most about doing this is writing stories that reflect the action in a given picture.  Sometimes, the story matches better than at other times, but I do take quite a lot of pride in letting the two elements work together to evoke a certain emotion or tone.  However, as I've recounted before, I tend to get a little carried away with my stories.  I want so badly to write a fully-realized narrative that I sometimes forget that I have very limited space.  The result is tiny, tiny font (in relation to the picture).  I know I've given instructions about how to get around that, and how to still be able to read the caption, but it still bothers me.  But the story always will come first for me.  I'll cut the story a bit, but I won't cut it so much that it changes the flow (just to make it fit). 

And that's why I love multi-caption stories.  There are no space constraints.  I'm free to tell the story I want to tell, and usually I can get more into the character's head.  As a writer, that's what I love to do.  The only downside is that these things take forever to create (in comparison to the one-off captions I usually post).  I can typically create a single caption in 30 minutes or so; it typically takes 2-4 hours to make a multi-caption story.  With my posting schedule, it's really, really difficult to do that very often. 

So I guess we can call it a special day when I am able to post one.  Today's a special day!

Feminization Caption - The Trip of a Lifetime

I got a little carried away with this caption (meaning that it's a little long, and probably too small of a font to read properly).  So I decided to go ahead and put the caption in this text as well, in case it's impossible to read.  So here it is:

When we decided to go to Morocco on vacation a few years ago, my husband and I had a certain level of expectation.  It was supposed to be paradise. The beaches, the was supposed to be the trip of a lifetime.  And I suppose it ended up like that, after a fashion.

The trip started out so wonderfully - my husband and I had only been married for a year, and we were very, very enthusiastic about one another.  We were in love, and in paradise - what more could we ask for?

I guess where the story went off the rails was that second night.  We'd decided to sample the local cuisine, and had asked the concierge for suggestions.  Of course, he wanted us to go to the typical tourist traps, but we insisted on a real Moroccan restaurant.  And so, we found ourselves in a part of town seldom frequented by tourists, sitting at a restaurant surrounded by Moroccan businessmen.

Maybe we should have picked up on it, but how were we supposed to know that that particular restaurant was a haven for the criminal underworld.  They seemed like businessmen; really, they did.  But they weren't.

Still, we made it through the majority of the meal without incident.  We kept to ourselves, and so did they.  And the food was absolutely terrific.

And then everything went terribly, terribly wrong.  It all happened so quickly.  One second, we were in a quiet restaurant, and the next, bullets were flying and tables were being overturned.  Shouts in unfamiliar languages mingled with dying screams as my husband and I tried to curl up under our table. 

When the restaurant went quiet, we thought we had survived.  We thought that we'd gotten lucky.  I was about to say something when the table was flung aside, and I found myself staring down the barrel of a gun.

The man barked an order, but I couldn't understand.  Finally, he hauled me up.  Another man did the same with my husband.  We were pushed into the middle of the room.  A dozen guns were trained on us as a man in a dark suit approached from the shadows.

"You are Americans, yes?"  he asked with an accent.  "No need to answer.  We have a problem, you see.  This was supposed to be...secret.  No one was supposed to survive.  But you - you weren't supposed to be here, either.  So, what are we to do with you? You may not recognize us now, but one day you will.  And if you do, we are finished.  But we do not kill innocents...usually.  So, you see my problem, yes?"

I dared to speak.  "We won't tell anyone.  I promise!"

"If only I could believe you," he said with a hint of sadness.  He raised his gun.

"We'll do anything," I shouted.  "Keep us prisoner.  Do whatever you want!  Just don't kill us!"

And with that, our fate was sealed.  If I had known then what I know now, would I have done it?  I know it's been much harder on my husband.  The level of change he's undergone...I don't know why they had to feminize him, but I know that it's been difficult for him.  It's been two years, and finally, at long last, he's starting to come to terms with himself.  He even smiles now.  That's something, at least.  Maybe they'll let us go soon.  Maybe

Feminization Caption - I Love My Job

I haven't made a real post (with text) lately - just my typical caption-of-the-day thing.  I've been a little distracted over the last few weeks, so my ability to focus on this blog (and the accompanying correspondence) has been quite limited. 

However, I pride myself on responding to the fans of my work, so here I'm going to try to answer a few questions in one fell swoop.  I'm not going to assign names or anything to these questions, so if you've asked one recently, just skim through and find yours.  Here it goes:

1. I was asked recently about my other (non-erotica) work.  A couple of readers simply wanted to know what my other pen name is so that they could read said books.  As many of you probably already know, I have several novels already in print under a different name (in the science fiction and fantasy genres).  While I do greatly appreciate the enthusiasm of wanting to read more of my work (based on the samples here), I simply can not oblige this request for a couple of reasons.

First and foremost, I have one series of Young Adult novels on the market, and I can not risk alienating that segment of my fans by openly publishing erotica.  And second, my publisher would go absolutely crazy if this sort of work showed up under my "also by" line.  Regardless of what my personal life may be (open as I am), it just doesn't make sense to blur the genre lines. 

I know that this answer may not be the one you'd like to see, and I'm certain I'm not explaining it properly, but this is what it is.  I can't really change it.

2. I get a lot of requests - usually, they have to do with captioning real-life people (oftentimes, it is the requester who wants to be captioned).  While I appreciate the idea of people wanting to be a part of this little blog, I will not do it.  First, I have no idea that the pictures will be who the requester says they are.  I know it's cynical, but that could simply be a way of humiliating someone else, and I can't in good conscience be a party to that.  Second, I really, really enjoy finding that perfect picture and crafting the story around it.  It's the process of searching, finding, modifying (I like using real women because that's how I imagine the perfect sissy), and then writing that makes this rewarding for me.  In most cases, accepting a request is counteractive to my process. 

3. I have to do this every few weeks, but addressing text size comes with the territory, I guess.  If you can't read the caption, simply save the picture and view it in media viewer.  You can zoom in and out as you wish.  Until Blogger allows zooming in the browser, this is going to continue to be an issue.  I create these captions with a variety of parameters, and I do try to keep them visible to all, but I can't tell how they will show up on every single screen.  My goal is to create a coherent story that is balanced with the picture/layout and is readable.  My only gauge for the latter is my own screen.

Again, I know this is probably not the answer some of you want to hear, but I just don't have time to go back into each caption and re-size them.  Most of the time, the layout is the part that takes the longest, and altering that takes a while.  As much as I want my work to be easily accessible to everyone (I really do), I realized a while back - when I saw that nearly every caption gets at least 1 horrible vote - I can't please everyone.  Hopefully, you all can meet me halfway on the sizing issue.

4. I've been asked a few times what it is that attracts me to this particular genre.  My knee-jerk reaction is to say, "I don't know.  I just like what I like."  However, after a little introspection, I've come up with a couple of reasons; they aren't all-inclusive, and it will take a while to really pinpoint it.  But this is a start. I'd love to hear why you all gravitate toward this genre of erotica.

First, I'm attracted to most things that are considered taboo.  There's an element of danger to it, of breaking the mores of our culture (right or wrong though they may be) that pushes it to another level. 

Second, it is a fertile ground for fiction.  There are so many different ways a man (or boy) can react to feminization that I can literally take my stories in any direction I want.  Emotionally, I can validate any reaction.  And that sort of choice is fun for a writer.

Okay, so that's my little question and answer session for now. Thanks, as always, for being fans.  Without you, I wouldn't be devoting hours to creating these silly little picture stories.  They'd be in my head, of course, but I would have no motivation to share them.  So thank you for that.  Knowing that someone enjoys my work is extremely rewarding.

And with that, I'll leave you with today's caption:

Sissy Caption - New Trend

Many times, I find myself hindered by my own stories.  I'd love to have the time to write full and realized stories for each caption, but with each photo taking as long as it does (hours rather than minutes for the ones with heavy modification required), I simply can't afford the time allotment necessary to write a real story.

So, usually, what happens is that I start writing with a grand idea, and about halfway through, I realize that I simply don't have enough room to fit the whole thing into the caption.  So I take the font down a size.  Then another size.  And then, when I get to the smallest font, I try to wrap it up as quickly as I can.  That's why I leave cliffhangers.  That's why, after the set-up, there just isn't much more than a "and then he lived his life." 

That said, I am proud of the majority of my captions, and I do appreciate you all being fans.  However, I do ask that you please bear with my tiny text.  I know it's frustrating, but usually, it's unavoidable (for reasons I've stated before).  That said, we've gone over different ways where you can enlarge the text on your own (open in new tab, save the picture, etc.). 

Thanks again for being fans!
