The Big Reveal

Hey everyone, I hope you had a nice weekend. I spent most of mine working which wasn't a whole lot of fun, but I least I got some stuff accomplished; such as this caption. I think I could have done a better job with the actual writing, but I really like this concept. But that's the downside to putting myself on a deadline. As much as I would have loved to keep rewriting this until I got it right, I needed to put out a new caption. It should hopefully continue to make my captions better in the long run, but you'll have to be the judge of that. See you Wednesday.

Live Chat

This is a long overdue request for Amber Smithe. She asked me to do a transformation based on a sex chat scenario and gave me a general idea of what she wanted. That was almost a month ago. So hopefully this caption was worth the wait. I really wished that I could have done more with the format, maybe put in some boxes that looked like chat windows, but that would've meant a much longer delay and I just couldn't do that. I really like the idea though, so maybe once I have the time I'll revisit this idea and try to get the format to better reflect the content. Have a good weekend everyone.

The Kind of Body

Another caption where the picture gave me a general idea of where to start, and then I just ran with it to see where I ended up. I certainly didn't go anywhere new with this one, but they can't all be groundbreaking. Sometimes you just revisit an old idea and hope you add a little something new to it. I'm not sure I accomplished that goal either, but I still like how this one turned out. If a situation shows up enough to become to cliche, it was probably to be good enough to warrant repeating in the first place. Either that or I'm just lazy, which is probably true as well. See you Friday.

Your Passion

1,000,000 views. No matter how many times I look at that number I still can't believe it. When I started this blog six and half months ago I thought if I was really lucky, I might hit that number in  little more than year. Thank you all for proving me wrong. For those of you in a rush, or for those of you who don't care about my ramblings, feel free to skip the rest of this and go straight to the caption. I promise I won't be offended.

To those of you still reading, I'd like to give you a little insight to how I ended up making this caption, how I wound up here, and how much your support means to me. I got into the tg community in the summer of 2010. I'm not sure what brought me there, but it caught my interest and I decided to look around and see what people were doing. After a few weeks of lurking, I began to think that I could make some decent captions if I tried. I had always enjoyed writing, but I had never done much of it outside of school. The very first caption I made I used my favorite model at the time Gabrille Lupin. It turned out okay, and it got some positive feedback over on tf-media, so I decided to keep doing it. I ended up posting around 150 captions on tf-media before it shut down. As much as I hated to see the site go under, but it gave me the push to start this blog. I knew that if I wanted to keep getting better, I needed to keep a consistent writing schedule, which is why I tried to stick to three uploads a week.

If it wasn't for all of the feedback I got from you all, I don't know if I'd still be here. I think that my interest in tg has moved past the novelty/fetish stage, and is now about creating a situation in which to write. I'm constantly looking to see what other authors are making and checking to see how my work is going over with all of you.

So when it came time to make this caption, I wanted to do something special. For the past two weeks I've been racking my brain for what I could possible do to mark this milestone. I tried going crazy over the top, but I couldn't find a photo set I liked enough, and I've never been great at doing super long stories. So I decided to go back to basics, maybe try to do something similar to what I did with my 100th caption. It was looking at that caption that I realized what I wanted to do. I've always felt my single panel caps were my strongest, especially when I leave them a little open ended. I also knew I wanted to involve the reader directly, as a sort of thank you for all of your support. I went back to the first model I ever capped (She goes by Ariel now, but if you want to find her it's probably easiest to search for piper fawn). I went through hundreds of pictures until I found this one. It wasn't anything overly spectacular, but her expression was perfect. I've done poetry once before, but it was more of a joke then. I wanted to see what I could do with a more serious tone, and I hope most of you can connect with what it says.

To end this obscenely long post, I just wanted to say thank you again. I never thought I would be writing like this on such a consistent basis, and enjoying every minute of it. You guys have given me a passion I otherwise would never have explored, and I can never thank you enough for it. My hope is that through my work, I'm able to give back a little of that to all of you. You all are the reason I'm here, so if you keep sharing your passion for tg with me, I'll keep sharing my passion for writing with you.

Immersion Therapy

Happy Friday everyone. I'm so glad to finally get a few days off, I've had a ton of work to do for the past two weeks so I desperately need a short break. As for this series, I'm not sure if I like it. I've been sitting on this photo set for probably close to six months and just have never been able to put a good story together. I was tired of seeing it in my pics folder, so today I just decided I was finishing this, no matter how it turned out. Looking back on it now, I think I did alright. I'm just glad to finally have it done. See you Monday.

Consolation Prize

Another letter format! I guess I liked the first one so much I felt the need to make another. Yay for easy plot devices! As if the tg world didn't have enough of those already... What actually happened was life got in the way of finishing the series I was working on so I needed to make something that was only one panel. Going through my image catalog I found this pic and I started writing whatever came to mind. A few quick edits later and this is what I got. For how quickly I pulled this together I think it turned out pretty well. Hopefully the rest of the week will be a little smoother so I can finish up something a little longer for Friday.

Just Like Jenny

Woah, what the hell is this? I'll tell you what it is, this is the first caption I've made using GIMP.  For those of you who don't know, I make all of my captions in PowerPoint. But Rauk, that's crazy, you can do so much more with better programs. I know, but as I've stated over and over, I'm primarily a writer, and up until recently I really didn't care about my how my captions looked, as long as it showed the story and whatever pic I was using in a reasonable manner. I also liked to think that when I wanted, I did a pretty nice job using PowerPoint, such as with the last piece I posted. But for this caption, I had to break down and use something that give my a longer image length. Normally I would just find another image and make it two panels, but I couldn't find anything that worked. I have to say, working with GIMP experience. I'm sure once I figure out all the ins and outs it'll be a decent program to use, but as it was it took me about four times longer than usual to make this caption. I think it turned out pretty well, but with my current schedule I don't know when I'll have the time to sit down and mess around enough to really get a feel for it.

Dear Caroline

Here's the first of a several short sequences you'll be seeing in the next few weeks. As you can obviously notice, I took a bit of a deviation from my usual caption style with this one. The text is fairly typical, but with my usual layouts I just couldn't get the feel I wanted. So I started playing around with backgrounds and styles until I realized I could make this actually look like a letter with pictures enclosed. I really like the way this turned out as I think it looks, for lack of a better term, more professional. I'm usually so focused on getting out my story, I let the actual appearance of the caption suffer. In an effort to keep pushing my work to a higher standard, I'm going to try to fix that trend in future captions. Have a good weekend everyone.

Not What it Looks Like

Another quick caption I managed to squeeze into my schedule. I actually didn't have an ending in mind when I started writing this, so I was pleasantly surprised at where it ended up. It's always nice when you can just run with an idea and like where it takes you. I've got a couple of short series in the works, so I'm going to try to finish one of them for either Friday or Monday, depending on when I find the time. See you Friday.

Suck It All Away

I didn't have as much time to write as I wanted this weekend, but I still managed to pull a quick new caption together for you. Nothing too special, but I like it. Sorry for being brief, but I'm looking at another hectic week, but there's not much I can do about it so I'll just keep squeezing in writing time wherever I can. Happy Monday.

Fleshlight Fun

So how's everyone doing? Still alive? Fortunately I managed to survive yet another week, but I'm sure the next will try to rectify that fact. But for now, it's time to celebrate because the weekend is finally here! As you might have noticed, I'm in a surprisingly good mood right now. Why is that? Because I finally wrote a caption I'm really proud of. I hope some of you enjoy it, but even if I'm the only person who does, I'm still going to be ecstatic about this caption. For the first time in months I finally managed to have my writing not only match, but surpass the story I had in my head. So often my writing ends up being a diluted version of what I'm trying to say, but not this time. Is there still room for improvement? Probably, but I really don't care right now. I can't remember the last time I was this happy with my work. I hoping to keep this momentum going for next week, but we'll have to wait and see. Have a great weekend.

Empty Apology

I still don't know when I found the time to write this, but here's your regularly scheduled update. This week has been crazy, but I'm staying on top of things pretty well so far. I just hope I can keep this up for the next few days. Anyway this is an image I've been sitting on for a bit, I always knew the general story for what I wanted to write, but for some reason I was never happy with my previous attempts. And yet by some force of luck or inspiration, I finally got something I could live with, and with the time constraints I have this week I can't afford to be picky. See you Friday...hopefully...

Couldn't Just Stand By

Here's another image sent to me by SSG. Sorry that this post is going to be pretty short, I've got a lot going on right now so I just wanted to make sure I posted something before I got too overwhelmed. That being said, this week's updates might be coming at weird times as a lot depends on when I can squeeze in some time to write. There will still be three new captions, but I'm not sure when you'll see the other two. Worst case scenario they'll show up over the weekend, but hopefully it doesn't come to that. Good luck surviving the week, I know I'm going to need all the luck I can get.
