Forced Feminization Caption Story - A Series of Suggestions

This caption story was another commission I've been working on for a little while now.  The story itself came together pretty easily (with only a couple of hiccups), but because the visual transformation was so detailed and gradual, the photo modifications took a while.  However, I think the time invested was worth it.  Outside of one frame, I'm happy with the entire thing (which is more than I can say for the vast majority of these things).  And given how ambitious the project was, I'm very pleased with that fact.

If you're interested, the models are thus:

C.J./Hayley (in order): Chris Pine, Morena Baccarin (hair), Cherry (Petite) Potter (body), Ashlynn Rae (Body), Unknown Amateur (body), Charlotte Springer (body), and Lana Rhoades (main model)
Michelle: Stella Cox
Fiona: Leah Gotti
Sophie: Kendra Lust
Tyler: Alex Pettyfer
Liam: Steve Holmes
Paulo: Joel Thomas
Carey: Unnamed Stock Photo Model

Anyway, it was a fun and challenging project, and I hope you all enjoy it as much as I did creating it.  It's another long one, so buckle up!

  1. This turned out absolutely amazing Nikki! I couldn't have imagined it turning out any better.

    1. Thanks. The story was probably always going to be okay; the photos were a bit touch and go, though. Glad it worked out.

  2. Very nice story, but if you keep doing the same thing over and over again, people will start complaining. Im not saying you *are* doing it, but the trend is starting to show. To be honest, this is by far the weakest of the bunch you had. And here are the reasons:
    1)No "double edged sword". What i mean by that, is that Hailey (CJ) was the only one that actually got punished by the change. If Michelle got punished for it too, by getting caught, that wouldve made the story a lot more enjoyable.
    2) The "Feminist effect". By that im trying to say that most of the male charcters got it worse no matter their actions while female got it better.
    3) Stop forcing veganism, please. Noone cares.

    Now, when we look at my complains, i have a better version of the story:

    Michelle still drugs CJ, but the way she controls him is different. Michelle is less rutheless in this version and has not infinite supply of the poition, only a month worth supply. What happens is that CJ is hypnotised into wearing Drag and having a gangbang with couple of guys. Michelle records it and blackmails CJ into feminization.
    (Some events happen)
    CJ finally is able to understand that Michelle doesnt have much power, so he goes into hiding. Then there could be multiple captions of Michelle trying to purge all the evidence of her and falling into desperation. By the end of the story Michelle is in prison for illegal drugging and blackmail while CJ does a full transition.

    1. At the risk of sounding defensive, please allow me to explain a few things that might help you understand why the story came out as it did. As a commissioned story, the general premise (and quite a few of the scenes) were out of my hands. These story elements included:

      Michelle's fate - she had to get away with it completely. C.J.'s fate - he couldn't have any sort of "happy ending". The office setting - high-powered executive gradually cedes his job to his secretary was the primary focus of the commission.

      The "feminist effect" was a natural extension of the story requirements. Veganism is a tool to force the character into an almost no-protein diet, which is intended to make the muscle loss a little more believable. The same can be accomplished with vegetarianism. It has nothing to do with forcing it upon anyone. It's a plot device, nothing more.

      As to your ideas - sounds like you've got a good start to a story. However, it would not have worked in this instance for a variety of reasons, not least of which because it's patently not what the customer wanted. It would also be an absolute bitch to find suitable photos for that (which is the hardest part of this whole thing). Even with how I did it, I had to do over a dozen face swaps so that I could get the visual plot points I wanted - and it took hours upon hours to find the proper angles, lighting, etc. to make it look mostly believable. So adding another dozen or so more difficult face swaps simply wasn't an option if I wanted to keep from pulling my hair out.

      I understand your complaints. I worry about falling into a rut with the stories, but in the end, most of the caption stories I write now are commissioned. That means I'm going to give them what they want so long as they're paying for it.

      I appreciate your comments, though, and I'll try to keep them in mind as I work on future projects.

  3. I, for one, enjoyed the story very very much. I think the dynamic of CJ and Fiona is what I'll remember for a long time. Fiona's role in the story is such a good mystery for quite a bit of it. Is she in on things? Is she working with Michelle or Carey somehow? Is there some family manipulation involved? She seeming way too supportive of all this! When CJ is finally released back to the forefront of his mind after everything that's happened and he confronts his sister... I really feel for Fiona. She really was trying to just be a supportive sister and help her brother transition. She was happy to see her brother not be the jerkass he's been his whole life, and I can't blame her for any wants to be closer to someone in her family with both their parents as messed up as they are. It was vulnerable and sweet and I loved her for everything she did to try and help her brother out without making him feel bad for one second until all the red flags with Michelle starting popping up.

    And I can't fault CJ for the way their bond broke at the end. He just came back to awareness and, even though he's still the jerk he was before, he's angry, hurt, betrayed, and lashing out. It doesn't matter just how lucky he is to have a pretty great sister like he does (though, to be fair, she is also a mooch living off her parents' money and she probably could've asked more questions instead of letting everything ride, so no one is without flaws... really well done), he's not going to take kindly to any of it. It hurts.

    I thought it was incredibly well done and I believe the surprising lack of twists, especially between Michelle and Carey, worked all the better. Only Michelle was in on the feminization. Everyone else was just who they were and dealing with their own problems while CJ was undergoing massive changes.

    Excellent, excellent read.

    1. Glad you liked it. My test reader, Erin, said the same thing about the relationship with Fiona, so you're not alone in liking that part. I will say that I'm a bit burned out on writing these gray, depressing stories with sad endings; the next one I write will be much cheerier.

    2. Different anon here. I'm only halfway through this story at the moment, and I'm enjoying it very much, but I saw your comment and just wanted to let you know that I quite like the ones with the more upbeat endings mixed in with the darker ones. I look forward to the next one being cheery!

    3. Thanks. If I'm honest, I like the happier endings as well. It wraps the character arc up a lot better than leaving them unhappy. But like I said, this one had to be this way because that's what the person who commissioned it wanted. I just had to figure out how to make it all make sense in the context of the story.

  4. I too like some happy endings, but I do like a dark ending as well. Sort of matches the fact that in the story men are often forcibly changed into females. I like the great photoshop skills you have and the story was good as well. I like that your changes are surgical and hormonal. Thanks for all the hard work and thanks to the person who commissioned this for allowing you to post it.

    1. My only problem with the unhappy ending is that it stymies the character's story arc. I'd prefer for him to have learned some sort of lesson from the entire ordeal. But again, I think it worked the way I wrote it; I just wouldn't have written it that way if it hadn't been commissioned as such. Maybe it's good, because it makes me have a bit more variety; my earlier stories almost always resulted in the protagonist accepting and growing to love his new situation.

  5. I think the key to the problems people(including you) are having lies in what you said in one of your comments exactly: variety. In the early years, all your story had very happy, feel good endings. Which was great, but like you said lacked variety. In an attempt to combat this, at least partially, nearly all of your stories since have had very depressing or dark endings, usually with the character either undoing their whole arc instantly and being trapped as their original persona uncomfortable in their new body, their loved one betraying them and ruining their life, etc. A dark ending can be a perfect resolution to certain stories, and it certainly works better in some of your stories than slapping on a feelgood ending just to have one, but in some cases, as you have acknowledged, is that sometimes it makes the story feel either incomplete or broken. This story is not one of those times, in my opinion, and the ending is acceptable. It provokes emotions of sadness, yes, but not in a way that is jarring or necessarily ruins the story, I felt like as the story went on it was building to such a moment, and the commission left you less of a choice in the matter than usual anyway. It's just that in the search for variety, you have traded one pattern for its opposite. In the future, varying happy endings and sad endings across your stories as opposed to long bouts of only happy or only sad stories might serve you better. In any case, your work is phenomenal as always, and this is just my two cents on the dilemma proposed in the comments section for this story.

    1. While I agree, I think the sad endings are more believable. We've all seen how being forced to live as the wrong gender can seriously derail someone's life (and even cause someone to attempt suicide); examples of that abound in our everyday experience. So, it would follow that a completely straight man who's forced to live as a woman would have quite a bit of difficulty adapting to that role. Thinking that he'd suddenly be "okay" and accepting of his situation is a bit naive. So long as I focus on "forced" feminization, that'll likely be the case.

      But I think focusing on keeping a nice variety of types of stories will go a long way to keeping them from getting stale, like you said. And though I have my tendencies, I'll do my best to keep them as fresh as possible.

  6. Great story, really enjoyed almost all of it. Most of it was right up my alley (I am mostly straight, so don't care too much for the male on TG stuff, but the rest really enjoyed).

    I really thought that it was going to be revealed that Carey was going to start controlling Michelle for being overly punitive on C.J., especially when they hooked up and then Michelle started wearing the less professional sexy floral clothing to the office. I thought that would have made a great twist, and thought maybe she would end up controlling both CJ and Michelle's life.

    Great work, keep it up!

    1. That actually would have been a wonderful twist. I kind of wish I'd thought of that. It would have necessitated a change in models for Carey (the model I used is a stock photo model, and what you saw was the extent of her portfolio), but it would have been really interesting. The boring reason I used that sexy floral dress frame came down to picture availability. Believe it or not, porn stars don't really have a lot of photos of them in work-style dresses/skirts. She had more than most, but the choices really weren't that broad. So, I chose to use that one, and had to throw a bit of an explanation out there. A boring reason, I know, but there it is.

      It would probably shock some of you to know that I've had entire plot points (and sometimes whole stories) revolve around single photo sets. The photos always come first; the story adapts to that (in most cases).

  7. Very good story! I am in the process of MtF transitioning, I need me that potion haha. I was kind of hoping Haley and Carey, in their mutual usage, were going to end up together; in my mind that would've made for a poetic happy ending... but the ending used was quite good. Good work hun, keep it up!

    1. If you look under "Pages", you'll see a listing called "Caption Stories". If you click that, you'll find all but the last couple of them. By contrast, you can also go to my Imagefap profile, where every caption I've ever done is posted in a pretty easy-to-navigate way.
