Gender Role Reversal Caption - The Perfect Man



As I'm sure most of you know, I haven't had quite as much time to focus on writing caption as I normally would (spending hours and hours with tech support trying to set up the site).  However, I did want to do something for today, so I did a sort of mini-caption.  I think it works pretty well.

A Light at the End of the Tunnel

I've been on the phone with GoDaddy tech support for upwards of four hours today, and I wanted to let you all know the results.

First of all, I got the domain (thefeminizationstation.com) transferred.  It's still propagating, but it should be ready once the site comes up.  Second, I signed up for their premium support (ugh - more money), and I've got them working on transferring the directory of the old version of the site to the new version.  Basically, when they get done, the site should work exactly as it did before.  However, because it's kind of a long, tedious process, it probably won't be done today.  Their ETA is 24-48 hours, but in the worst case scenario (which I've been assured won't happen), it will take 72 hours. 

So - why has it taken so long?  I know some of you must be wondering this.  And I feel an obligation to be as transparent as possible with what I'm doing to make this work.  Ultimately, it comes down to me being a bit reactionary with my first choice of web hosts.  I've mentioned it before, but I originally chose HostGator (they popped up as first on one of the web hosts that allow adult content).  I should've done a little more research, because not only was their service horrible (I was waiting 3 whole days for something that ultimately never happened), but their servers were extremely slow as well.  I'm so glad I pulled the plug on that. 

That said, those three days were, well, three days where I wasn't making any progress toward getting the site back up, which put me behind schedule.  And after my transfer yesterday didn't yield the results I wanted (the directory didn't go where it was supposed to), I had to admit that I was in a bit over my head (with the site migration).  That's when I decided to pay GoDaddy to simply do it for me. 

And that's where I am now.  Aside from importing member information, this should be the final step.  And so, I'm just waiting, hoping that this never happens again.  I think I've done what I can to ensure that it won't, but who knows when someone's going to change their terms of service? 

Anyway - to the making amends part.  Once everything's back up, I intend to give my latest book "Little Man" to all the holders of current memberships (gold and platinum alike).  In addition, I'll be in touch with platinum members to let them know how I'm going to make it up to them.

I hope that goes a little ways to easing the inconvenience of the site being down for a few days.  Like I've said before, I apologize for the way this went down.  It's purely my fault for not anticipating this when I originally set up the account.  In my defense, though, I'm just a writer.  Aside from getting a crash course in website management in the past few months, I really don't know all that much about this.  I just hope to get better as the days go on.

Thanks again for understanding.

TG Motivation - Get Over It


I just wanted to let you all know that the new site is coming along on schedule, and barring a mishap (meaning that the site's migration doesn't go as it's supposed to), I should have everything back up and running tomorrow.  Once I have the site up, I'm going to transfer the membership information to the new location and put a redirect on the old site. 

As an aside, this has ended up being a lot more of a pain than the first time, mostly because I made a bad choice with my first attempt at finding a new host.  If anyone's ever going to create a new site, please, for the love of God, don't let HostGator host it.  Their servers are incredibly slow, their support system is completely inadequate, they have email bounceback issues, and they have a habit of telling the customer whatever it takes to get them off chat.  Needless to say, that was a really bad choice, and I got out of that as quickly as I could. 

However, I can't say enough good things about Godaddy (so far). Their service is top notch (spent almost six hours in chat today getting step-by-step instructions and advice on which hosting plan to purchase), their serves seem head and shoulders above HostGator's (about 3x faster), and, most importantly, I think I'm actually getting what I intended to do, done.  That said, they're a lot more expensive, but I suppose you tend to get what you pay for. 

The bottom line is that I think I'm going to have the site up and running tomorrow or the next day, so keep checking back for more updates.  Thank you all for your patience, and I hope my work continues to be worth it.

Feminization Caption - A Few More Steps


Another Update!

Okay, all - I'm here with another update.  First of all, I see a light at the end of the tunnel.  At least I think that's what it is.  However, it's entirely possible that it's an illusion.  But that's the pessimist in me talking, I suppose.  In any case, I've figured out how to migrate my site (instead of waiting on the people at HostGator to do it), and I've started transferring the files accordingly.  The only problem is that there are A LOT of files, which means that it's probably two days' worth of constant transferring.  So, that's going on right now.  I'm hoping that it'll finish overnight, but I'm not sure if it will.  When it finishes, the site should look (and function) just like it did before, albeit with a different domain. 

And that brings me to the next mountain to climb: subscriptions.  Until I get Memberpress up and running on the new site, I won't know if I can easily transfer memberships to the new site.  I don't even know if the membership information will transfer (though I think it will).  So, I'll have to tackle that before we can figure out how to make it work like before. 

However, I should know for sure in the next day or so (when it gets finished transferring the files).  I'll keep you all informed.

Sissy Caption - A Star is Born


In addition to today's caption, I wanted to give another update to those of you who're waiting on the new site to take shape.  Basically, right now I'm just waiting.  I've contracted my new host to migrate my site to the new server, which apparently takes a few days.  Some of it is due to the domain transfer, but a lot of is due to it being a bit of work.  However, they've assured me that it will work properly, and like I said, I'm just sitting on the sideline right now, champing at the bit.  I don't really do the whole "waiting" thing well, especially when it concerns not only my livelihood but also my obligation to my fans (neither of which I take lightly).

I'm not sure what else I can say, except that I'm doing everything I can to push them to do it more quickly (been on the line with their technical support more times than I can count).  I just hope to have something done soon.

In the meantime, if anyone who's already paid for a membership (I can check, so nobody try to cheat) wants to access the already-published stories, please let me know by emailing me at:

thefeminizationstation@gmail.com

I'm working on an alternate way for you to read them while I get the site up and running.  In addition, if you haven't voted in the poll, I'm re-posting it here.  Remember that the choices are as follows:


  • Disapproving Father Story

In this one, a father who disapproves of his daughter's new boyfriend feminizes him (with the hope of breaking them up).

  • Feminized Family Story

A college student returns home to find that his father has taken up with a transgender woman and her similarly feminized daughter.  In addition, his father has already begun his transition, and his little brother has started to show signs of femininity as well.  Soon, the college student starts to fall under their spell, too.

  • Feminized High School Student Story

A high school student is slowly feminized.  When he realizes what's happening, he begins to suspect a former victim of his bullying for authoring the change.  However, he could be very mistaken as to the culprit.

  • Stepford Husband Story

A man moves into a new neighborhood where there seem to be a very high number of lesbian couples.  Soon, he finds that his wife is becoming more and more dominant while he feels more submissive.

  • Blackmail Story

After agreeing to help his crush with a college paper, a young nerd decides to blackmail her into dating him.  What he doesn't know is that she's a dominant lesbian who knows exactly how to manipulate him into becoming what she wants him to be.

Enslaved Sissy Caption - Because I Can


An Update

I've already gotten quite a few emails about the site being down, and I made a post about it earlier this morning.  However, I just wanted to reiterate to everyone that I'll have the site back up and running soon.  I've already chosen (and paid for) a new hosting solution, and I'm in the process of migrating the site over.  Once it's finished, you shouldn't be able to notice anything different - so long as everything goes as planned. 

There's always the possibility that I'll have to rebuild, though.  If that happens, it'll probably be a couple of days before it's completely finished.  However, I'll definitely have something done (one way or another) within 4-5 days.

Like I said in the last post, I do plan to do something to make up for the outage.  I'm not sure what form it'll take yet, but it'll be something. 

Anyway - hope that sheds some more light on the situation.  I'll keep you informed as I make progress.

Changing Domains For My Site

Due to some issues with Wordpress as a webhost, I'm currently in the process of transferring thefeminizationstation.com to a different host.  The transfer may take as much as five days (but I'm hoping for less).  In that span, the site's not going to be available.  Sometime next month, I'll make it up to you all by adding extra content or by temporarily lowering costs. 

I hope this doesn't inconvenience anyone, but I'm doing my best to correct the situation.  In the meantime, I'm sorry, and I want everyone to rest assured that I'll fix it as soon as possible.

If you have any questions, please email me at:

thefeminizationstation@gmail.com

Thank you for patience.

Forum Topics Ideas

Hey all!  I'm in a bind, and once again, I'm turning to you all for help.  However, this time, it's not about models or stories.  Rather, it's about something I've been looking into for a couple of months now, and I'm just getting around to implementing it on my site. 

Forums.  Yeah - I want to create a message board/forum for my site where people from this community can discuss pertinent topics (or whatever, really).  I love the sense of belonging it fosters, and I think the community can always benefit from more avenues of discussion, be it trans issues, story suggestions, or a place to plug your own work.  But here's the issue:  I've never done this before, and I really don't know what sort of forums to create.  That's where you all come in.  What kind of topics would you like to see?  A showcase for other captioners' work?  A general discussion forum?  Story discussion?  I'd really like to hear from you all, so please, if you have any suggestions, just let me know in the comments.  Alternatively, you can contact me directly via my CONTACT ME page. 

Thanks in advance!

New Caption Story - Gemini: Volume 3

I just published this month's second caption story, called Gemini: Volume 3, and I'm super happy with how it turned out.  As most of you probably know, Gemini refers to a fictional, online contest where a man takes the place of a woman in his life.  I've done two other stories within this world, which you can find HERE and HERE.  However, the other two stories focused primarily on what happened before the contest.  This one follows the protagonist, Miles Soto, all the way from the first stages of his transformation through the aftermath of assuming his sister's life for a year. 

I'm also really pleased with it for a couple of other reasons, one of which is the fact that the primary model, Ariana Marie, was chosen by you all.  The final reason I'm so excited about it is because I really love the process of creating "twins" in Photoshop (probably because I like the idea of a man becoming a woman's copy).  Most of the time, there are a fair few photos with which I'm not entirely pleased.  However, with this one, there's only one instance where I don't think it was quite perfect.  Doing what I do, especially in a story with this much photo modification, that's rare. 




Anyway - that's this month's second story. I hope you all enjoy it as much as I did creating it. And remember to vote in the Story Submission Contest, the link to which you can find HERE.

Gender Role Reversal Caption - The Price of Stardom


Also, remember that the Story Submission Contest Voting is still going on.  If you'd like to vote, just click HERE.

And I also wanted to let you know that I got a bit mixed up with my schedule, and I wrote next month's book in this month's place.  So, I switched the Age Regression (titled "Little Man", now coming 2/28) and the Fantasy Books (now coming 3/29) on the release schedule. 

I'm actually really excited about "Little Man".  I just finished editing it, and I think it's one of my best (certainly the longest) stories yet.  It follows a vertically challenged, middle-aged man who, after he loses a bet with his wife, is forced to shave his beard.  When he does, he's constantly mistaken for someone much younger, which soon sends him down the road to posing as a female teenager.

I hope you'll all give it a shot because I got the warm fuzzies while writing it (and that usually tells me it's something pretty good).

TG Caption - Trixie

Sorry I missed another caption yesterday.  I had a bone marrow biopsy the other day (hurts like crazy and leaves a big bruise), and I was a bit loopy from pain medication yesterday.  But I'm back to normal (or as normal as I ever get!).  Anyway - here's today's caption:


Wednesday, February 13, 2019

Sorry!

I'm sorry, but there won't be a caption today.  I forgot about a series of tests I have to go through today.  It's not a huge deal (normal for people with my disease), but it'll probably end up taking most of the day.  However, I'll have a nice Valentine's day caption for tomorrow!

New Caption Story - Too Good to be True

Today, I published "Too Good to be True", which tells the story of a college student who, after changing his major to something "useless", is cut off by his parents.  Without any way to pay for college, he takes a job working for a female hedge fund manager with a history of employing transgender girls.  Soon, he starts dressing and acting more femininely.  It stars Peta Jensen.

Story Submission Voting

Fist of all, let me apologize for failing to post a caption yesterday.  I spent most of the day cooking (for a Super Bowl Party at my sister's house), and didn't get a chance to write a new caption.  So, I'm sorry.  I also won't be posting a new caption today; I've been stuck at the doctor for the bulk of the day, and I just don't have the energy to concentrate on doing a proper caption.  However, I'll be sure to get back to posting tomorrow.

Now - onto something a bit more fun!  With the help of a few trusted readers, I've narrowed down the story ideas you all submitted to five choices.  And let me tell you - it was really, really difficult.  Almost all of the ideas were great, and I could easily see any of them becoming fun stories.  However, I had to narrow it down (most of them that didn't make the cut were passed over because of my technical limitations as opposed to any issue with the idea itself) to something a little more manageable.  So, here they are (in order of submission):


  • Disapproving Father Story
    • In this one, a father who disapproves of his daughter's new boyfriend feminizes him (with the hope of breaking them up).
  • Feminized Family Story
    • A college student returns home to find that his father has taken up with a transgender woman and her similarly feminized daughter.  In addition, his father has already begun his transition, and his little brother has started to show signs of femininity as well.  Soon, the college student starts to fall under their spell, too.  
  • Feminized High School Student Story
    • A high school student is slowly feminized.  When he realizes what's happening, he begins to suspect a former victim of his bullying for authoring the change.  However, he could be very mistaken as to the culprit.
  • Stepford Husband Story
    • A man moves into a new neighborhood where there seem to be a very high number of lesbian couples.  Soon, he finds that his wife is becoming more and more dominant while he feels more submissive.
  • Blackmail Story
    • After agreeing to help his crush with a college paper, a young nerd decides to blackmail her into dating him.  What he doesn't know is that she's a dominant lesbian who knows exactly how to manipulate him into becoming what she wants him to be.
So - those are the final five.  There are some really fun ideas there (and in the ones that didn't quite make it!), and I think any of these could make wonderful stories.  But it's not up to me.  That decision is up to you, the readers.  So, vote for whichever one you like best, and next month, I'll turn it into a caption story!






Thank you to all of you who submitted your ideas. Like I said, it was incredibly tough to whittle them down to just five (from over 30 ideas!). I'll definitely consult the list if I'm ever running short of ideas.

Thanks again, and good voting!

Forced Sissy Caption - A Necessary Reminder


February Release Schedule


Another month has passed, and from a personal perspective, January was one of the best months in a long while.  Not only did it see three fun, well-received releases, but I also started leaning in to the fan interaction thing by using a lot of polls to dictate the direction of some upcoming stories (specifically model selections).  In addition to that, I launched the first Caption Submission Contest, where many of you gave me some story ideas which will be voted upon later this month.  And I’m really happy to say that the response far exceeded my expectations.  So, thank you all for your participation. 

Now – on to the story release recap!

First up was “Role Model” (released 1/9/19), featuring Alix Lynx.  In it, a shy young man hates his father’s new wife, who he regards as a bimbo trophy wife.  However, after a trip to a family therapist, he starts to see her in a whole new light. 



Next (on 1/19/2019) was “Anarchy”, which was something of an homage to the popular television show, “Sons of Anarchy”.  However, in this story, featuring Kageny Linn Karter, Jax Teller finds himself kidnapped and transformed by a dominant woman.  Once he’s completely feminized, he’s forced to take a job at Cara Cara, the porn studio owned by his old motorcycle club. 



And finally (on 1/29/2019), I released the final Omar Bell Universe book, “Justice Creek: The Origin of Omar Bell”.  In it, a sheriff’s deputy of a small Mississippi town is captures, tortured, and eventually feminized.  Soon, he finds that his fate (and in some cases, a much worse one) is shared by his entire town.



So – those were the releases for last month. This month promises to be even better, I think. 

On 2/9/2019, I’ll be releasing “Too Good to be True”, a story in which a young man, after changing his major, is cut off by his parents.  Without any way to pay for college, he takes a job working for a rich, female hedge fund manager.  Soon, he finds himself dressing and acting a lot more femininely.  Features Peta Jensen.

Then, by popular demand, I’ll be releasing the third volume of the Gemini stories (aptly called “Gemini: Volume Three).  In it, a man takes the place of his promiscuous, younger sister.  However, he soon finds that he doesn’t really know her at all.  It’ll be released on 2/19/2019, and it features Ariana Marie. 

And last but not least, I’ll be releasing an as-yet-untitled fantasy novel set in a kingdom stuck in a perpetual two-sided war.  Soon, this kingdom succumbs to her neighbors – the female-dominated nation to her west and the savage barbarians to her east.  This spells doom for its population as its fighting men are forcibly transformed into feminine, submissive slaves while the women are sent away. 

So – like I said, it should be a fun month!  If you’d like to read these (or any of the rest of the nearly a hundred other stories in my library), you’ll have to become a member of my site.  To find out more, just click the following link:
