Here's a question for you. Do you care how the transformation actually happens? Now I know a lot of people are picky about whether it's magic, or surgery, or whatever. But I've always been more interested in how the people involved are feeling after the transformation happens.
Take for example this caption. There's no indication that this is a tg caption until the last line. For me, it's enough to just know a transformation happened, the details aren't overly important. Every now and then I do a full description of the transition, but I feel like those are usually my weaker captions. I've always been better at writing dialog than action, which is why I use it a lot more.
I just feel that a lot of captions out there get bogged down in hammering out all the details of the who, what, when, why, and how, and the story gets lost a little. But then again, I also prefer to leave my captions a little open to let the reader fill in as much or as little as he or she wants, so it may just be my personal taste and style. I'd love to hear what you all think, it just might influence upcoming captions.
Have a great weekend, see you Monday.
