Her Smile

I didn't have a ton of time to write this week, but I knew that I wanted to do something a little different than the usual. So I decided on focusing on how a third party might react to a transformation, using a true second person perspective. Second person is what was used for the old Choose-Your-Own-Adventure books and not much else. That's probably because it can be a little awkward to write and read since it tells the reader what he or she is doing, but I wanted to see if I could pull it off. You'll have to let me know if I was successful. See you Friday.

All Work and No Play?

Sometimes I really hate my brain. When I finally have a few days off to do nothing except write, of course I lose my motivation. I wouldn't go as far as to say it was writer's block, but most of what I tried to do really sucked. I really can't catch a break. Fortunately, I did manage to turn out a new Kylie caption for today, I hope some of you get a laugh out of it. The one positive point from my downtime was I managed to restock my image folder with around 50 new pics just waiting to be captioned for when I actually have the time and motivation to do so. I wonder if that will ever happen. Happy Monday everyone.

Corruption

And I'm only an hour and a half late, not too bad. The last update focused on the submissive aspect of a transformation, so I decided to do a thematic prequel to the situation. It's not the same situation, but it's not hard to see how the two tie together. I love a good monologue, and once I got this one started it pretty much wrote itself. I didn't do a whole lot of editing, so this is as close to stream of consciousness as you'll probably see from me. It's always fun to create a character and just let them talk for a while. If you're lucky you'll end up somewhere interesting. Have a good weekend everyone.

Thorough Punishment

Sorry about the delay, but here you go. I haven't done anything in the third person for a while, so I decided to go back to it. I really prefer the first person, but I like to mix things up to add a little diversity to my work. I also haven't described a transformation in a while, so I threw in one of those as well. Honestly, I always feel like these types of captions are some of my weaker pieces. I guess that's because I write dialog so easily I tend to neglect more distant perspectives, so I don't practice them as much as I should. I've read so many captions and stories that describe transformations so much better than I ever could, so I tend to avoid them as no one likes admitting their shortcomings. But it's something I really need to do more often as that's the only way I'm ever going to get better at it. See you Wednesday.

A Toss Up

I'm exhausted. I'm going to keep it short today as I have almost no energy right now. I can't tell you how much I need a few days off. Enjoy the weekend everyone, there's a pretty good chance I'm going to sleep through the whole thing.

Altering the Arrangement

I've got good news and bad news. The good news is I've managed to finish two new captions so that the updates are now back on schedule. The bad news is life decided I wasn't done with the insanity of the past two weeks so I didn't have a lot of time to make these. So while they're both fairly short, it's better than nothing. Eventually I'm going to find the time to sit down and write something longer. As much as I love single panels, I'm feeling the need to do something with a little more depth. Now I just have to find a way to get the world to give me the time to do actually do it. See you Friday.

A Delightful Spell

Happy Monday everyone. As of right now this week is looking to be much better than the past two for me, which hopefully means everything is back on schedule. Here are a couple of short captions I pulled together for you, pretty typical to most of my earlier work. Seeing as I had taken a bit of a forced break, I wanted to make some pieces I know I know how to write. I turned these out pretty easily so everything's looking good for getting back to normal. See you Wednesday.

The Birth of Kylie

Before I get into the contents of today's post, just a quick administrative comment. I've decided that in order to catch up for missing last week, Monday's and Wednesday's updates will have two captions instead of one (assuming nothing crazy happens, fingers crossed.) So that just leaves one more caption to take care of, which brings us back to today's update.

I've decided that after a year and a half of writing captions, it was about time I included myself in one. I've held off on doing this for so long because I've always felt that I could write a better story if I created completely new characters every time. It's the same reason I don't do sequels to my captions, I tell the story I want to tell and then I move on. But during these past two weeks I came up with an idea that I liked so much I was willing to break both of those patterns, her name was Kylie.

I've seen a lot of captions where the guy loses himself to a female persona (including some of which I've written myself.) So I started to think, what if he didn't disappear. What if instead of being trapped in the situation, it was more like he was stuck in the passenger seat. So I played around with the idea of having two personalities in one body, the usual sort of dominant/submissive relationship that would cause, but something didn't feel right. I had changed the general premise, but I was still writing the same stuff I always had. So I decided to have some fun with it. I gave it a more playful tone, and threw in a little sarcastic humor. The final piece of the puzzle came when I realized that instead of being just two people in one body, I could also make it two different bodies in one life. When one personality is in control the body is male, when the other takes over it's female. But both personalities are always present and can constantly comment on what the other is doing.

The decision to include myself came when I realized how much enjoyed this idea, and this was something that wasn't going to be a one time affair. I figured there wasn't any better way to ensure I'd do this series justice than to have a more personal stake in seeing it's done right. I hope you all enjoy it, because I can promise that this is just the beginning.

Good Girl

Almost finished with this insane week. I say almost finished because I'll still be doing work over the weekend, which I'm simply ecstatic about. Hopefully things will slow down a bit next week. But enough about that, you all come here for the captions, and I just so happen to have a new one for you lovely people. For those of you who don't visit her blog (and seriously, why don't you? It's amazing,) Candy just celebrated reaching 100 followers. In honor of that I finally got around to capping a series of images she requested a long time ago (how unbelievably generous of me.) In order to make up for neglecting this set for so long, I wanted to try to do something different to make it stand out more. I finally decided on trying some nonlinear storytelling. Granted, just intermixing flashbacks isn't the most complicated plot structure, but I didn't want to get overzealous and end up with something incomprehensible. I think I found a decent mix of traditional and experimental, and I'm fairly happy with the outcome. I hope you all enjoy it. Have a good weekend.
