Unacceptable

As promised, here's one more cap for 2012, and it's a formspring request to boot!

Placeholder

I wanted to have a new caption for you all today, but I'm torched after all of the "fun" of the holidays. So you get a boring formspring update instead... I really spoil my readers, don't I?

A quick request for Andrew/Amy.

A Sad form of Flattery

So it looks like another blog has decided to start reposting my work. And it's kind of sad how bad they are at ripping me off.

Another Round of Formspring Fun

I have to say I'm loving how many questions I've been getting through formspring lately. It's always lot of fun having a direct conversation with you nice people. So let's see what you've got in store for me today.

So much formspring...

In the past couple of days I have gotten a ton (well, a relative ton compared to usual) of formspring questions and comments. Let's go through some them, shall we?

Warning: The following post may contain dangerously high levels of sarcasm in certain sections. I am not responsible for any confusion arising from over the top shifts in tone.

Wrath Fixed and other Formspring Stuff

There were a few issues with "Wrath" when I posted it, but I think I've gotten everything figured out. So if you couldn't see it yesterday I apologize, but if you have the time I'd highly recommend checking it out, I really like this one.

A Terrible Apology

I'd like to take a moment to quickly apologize for the complete lack of content in the past week or so. And now to completely ruin that apology, I have to say that this dry spell might not be ending for longer than I anticipated.

Lately my captioning time has been cut to basically nothing, and probably won't be getting much better until the weekend. I might have time to crank out a quicky somewhere, but I wouldn't hold my breath.

I feel bad since I've got a couple of standing requests still to finish, and again I'm sorry to those of you who are waiting, but I really want to take my time and do them right. Plus I still have a lot of Seven left to finish, and that is not something I'm willing to do a rush job on.

So as of now all I have for you is a terrible apology, as I can't even say I'll do better soon. Anyway, just wanted to keep all of you posted, and hopefully you'll be seeing some new content by the weekend.

More Formspring Fun

What happens when you take away everything?


2,000,000 Views - Time for a New Look

So in honor of hitting 2 million views I decided to give the blog a fresh coat of paint. New header, new background, new text colors, etc. I might decide to change the layout slightly too, but I don't have time to do that tonight. But I really wanted to put in the effort to make this place look shiny and new again as a way of saying thank you for all of the views. This blog has been so much more of a success than I ever hoped it would be, and I want to sincerely thank every viewer, frequent commenters and lurkers alike, for taking the time to see what I've created. I wouldn't be here without you.

Oh...and in case you hadn't noticed, I posted a new caption too. And I have to say, this one is the start of something I'm really excited about.

Rauk


P.S. If you have any feedback for me on the new look, good, bad, or whatever, I'd love to hear it. I'm still trying to get the new color scheme the way I want, let me know if readability starts to suffer.

Wait, I have a Formspring?

I know, it kind of surprised me too. I was checking my email today and found that I had received a couple of questions form the formspring box I added to the side of my blog a while ago and then quickly forgot about. So since someone was willing to take the time to throw out a question, I figured it would be rather rude if I didn't reciprocate with an answer.

Are you a sssy?

I'm going to go out on a limb here and guess that this individual wants to know if I am a sissy. In my fantasies? Sometimes. But in the real world? Not so much. More or less I'm just a straight guy who likes to imagine what it would be like to be a girl for a bit. While I love writing a good sissy caption, more often than not my own personal fantasies tend to go along the lines of a magical, full transformation, and preferably a temporary one at that. My love for sissy captions actually has more to do with the fact that I find them to be much more interesting to write about as there is such a wide range of emotions tied up in sissification (joy, guilt, lust, humiliation, etc). And as a writer I'm naturally drawn to exploring the depth that the world of sissies provides.

Are you a tgirl?

This is more or less answered by my response above, but just in case some of you decided to skip over that block of text, no I am not. I'm a heterosexual male who decided to share his fantasies of being turned into a woman with all of you nice people here on the internet. Tg is just a fantasy for me, although I understand and completely support those for whom it is an integral part of their lives and identities. Oh and in a similar vein, my sexual identity is true for both the real world and online. "Rauk" is my male name (I know, it's weird as most tg captioners go by their female persona). If for some reason you're interested in finding out more about me (such as how I got into tg or why I decided to start making captions), check out my Bio section up at the top. Or you can also see the couple of captions I've put myself into by looking at the tag "Kylie" over on the left side of the blog.

I wonder if you could do a caption with a redhead and a magic hairbrush?

I want to apologize for this one, as I realized when I logged into formspring today that it's been sitting there for six months. To whomever requested this, I'm really sorry, I did not mean to ignore your idea. But to address the question, if I found a picture that worked I can't see why not. I've never run across something like this in the places I usually search (although those places do tend to focus on naked people for some reason). So if I find something that works, sure. But if you'd rather not leave it up to chance and find something yourself, feel free to email it to me at 22rauk@gmail.com. I can't promise that I'll use it (I'm kind of picky about the images I use in captions) but I guarantee you'll get a response from me either way.


So that's it for this round of formspring. It was a lot of fun answering some questions, and hopefully there will be some more in the future. The submission box is over on the side of the blog like everything else, or if you don't like that or want to really ensure I get your message, send me an email.

Sorry for yet another update without a caption, but I'm thinking you'll be seeing something new from me on Saturday... I hope.

Smitty's "Virtual Vacation"

I wanted to put out a new caption for you all today, but unfortunately that didn't work out. Hopefully I'll be able to create something new in the next couple of days, but until then here's something to hold you over.

At the moment I've read through somewhere between 15 and 20 of the possible 25 endings, and I have to say Smitty has outdone himself once again with this one. I can't recommend this caption highly enough. So if you've got a few minutes why not read through an ending or two? Be warned though, you just might find yourself wasting an entire evening exploring every twist and turn this series has to offer.

Why are you still reading this? Seriously go check it out.

Out of Her System

I originally intended this to be a much smuttier caption than it turned out being. But once I got it started the story just took off in its own direction, and I've done enough captions by this point to know better than to try to fight a caption once it builds up momentum. But no matter how you look at it, it still has a really hot picture and despite what I'd like to say to the contrary a hot pic is easily more than half of what makes up a "good" caption... Aw, now I made myself feel less important. I'm going to go argue with some people on the internet, that'll show everyone how awesome I am again.

Day-to-Day Stuff

Hey everyone, I've got a quick update and a question for you in regards to the general day-to-day stuff for the blog.

First up, commenting. There's a lot of talk on the tg blogs I frequent about commenting recently. I'm not going to go into a whole lot of depth as pretty much everything has been covered. If you're interested you can check out the conversations here, here, and here. What I want to focus on is idea of the disconnect between me as the author and you as the audience. I've always tried to keep the tone of this blog extremely informal and relaxed. Unfortunately I hurt that idea by how rarely I respond to comments, making it seem like I don't want to be a part of the conversation that goes on here. So starting now I'm going to try to respond to pretty much every comment I can as a way of showing you all how much I appreciate what you have to say about my work.

Which brings us to the second order of business, the question I have for all of you. Smitty suggested to me that I switch to click-through style of posting so that I can better track page views for individual captions. Now on a creator level that sounds great, but my primary goal is to make this blog work for the readers as much as possible. So I'm leaving it up to all of you. If you want to leave me a comment that's great, but since I want to get a feel for as much of my audience as possible, feel free to use the rating boxes at the bottom of the post as well.

If you like the idea of going to click-through, or if it doesn't really matter to you one way or the other, click "Great"

If you like the way the blog is now and don't want to add another click between you and the captions, click "Not My Thing"

I'll let this poll run for probably a week or so before making the decision to switch or not.

Oh, and if you don't know what I'm talking about, here are a couple of examples of the style I'd be switching to. This, this, and this.

Pretty Pink Pussy

And I'm back. As per custom, my first caption after a break is the obligatory taunting lesbian caption. Although this one has much more of a heterosexual aspect than I usually go with for this style. I'm not sure how often I'll be posting as I'm still not back to peak motivation, but I figured since I found a little bit today I had better make the most of it.


Monday, July 9, 2012

Well This is Awkward....

Hey everyone, I wish I had a new caption for you after my week long absence, but sadly I do not. I'm kind of in a weird place right now in terms of writing. I don't want to call it writer's block, as that implies an underlying frustration about wanting to write and not being able to. What I'm going through right now is a complete lack of inspiration and motivation. I've been meaning to write something new for the past four days, but as you can see that hasn't happened.

So here's what's happened the past few times I've gone to write a new caption:
  • I open up my "To Caption" folder of images
  • Scan through all of them, find nothing I want to write about
  • Close the folder, head over to my usual image sites looking for new material
  • Find nothing that inspires any kind of caption
  • Start exploring other websites that I don't usually use for captioning
  • Remember why I don't use other sites after finding nothing once again
  • Read other captioners' work in an attempt to get inspired
  • Eventually close the internet and just let my mind wander to see if it latches on to anything in particular
  • Give up and plan on writing something new tomorrow
I don't end up frustrated or angry like I do when I have a story but it just won't come out right. I just feel slightly disappointed and then I get on with the rest of my day.

So now I've decided that this pattern isn't working for me. I'm going to be taking some time off from the tg world in hopes that coming back with fresh eyes and a clear mindset will get the stories flowing once again. Hopefully this will clear up in a few more days and I'll be back to turning out new stuff before you know it.

Ugh, it seems like all I do recently is take time off. Remember the days when I was putting out three new captions a week, every week? Yeah, that was cool... Someday I'll be back to that level. Or at least that's the dream. Anyway, I hope to be back soon, thanks for your patience.

Cute Little Sissy

After the last caption's more serious tone, I felt the need to do something fun. And nothing says "fun" quite like rhyming couplets. I need to be in the right mood to write in this style, but these kind of captions are the ones I probably enjoy creating the most. Enjoy.


Thursday, June 28, 2012

Right

I decided to push beyond my personal realm of experience/fantasy for today's caption. I was in the mood to write, but nothing overly sexual. So I decided to do a little character exercise with this one. One of the hardest things for writers just starting out is to write a character with a different mental state than their own. In part of my effort to continually get better at this whole writing thing, here is another attempt at capturing the voice of someone outside my normal cast of characters. Hopefully those of you out there with more experience with this kind of mind set will think I did the character justice in my portrayal of her reaction to finally achieving her dream.

The Contract

So this was a request done for Tatiana over at Rachel's Haven. She enjoys twisted wishes captions, and seeing as I haven't done one of those in a while and they're something I genuinely enjoy writing I agreed to make another one for her. It's getting harder to keep coming up with new wishes to pervert and I'm a little ashamed that I couldn't come up with anything better than the cliche "I wish I understood my girlfriend better" and "I wish I was my girlfriend's ideal lover" but I'd already been sitting on this request for a while so I figured it was better to go with something that's been used a few times before than sit around and hope that I can come up with something better. In the end I think it turned out pretty well, and I hope Tatiana agrees.

One Hell of a Ride

Sorry about the quiet week, the real world decided to get in the way again. Anyway, this was a request by Amber Smithe. She sent me the story outline and the images, which makes it really sad that it still took me almost two weeks to finish it as she did most of the work. But hopefully she likes the final product and thinks it was worth the wait. I like how this one turned out, a little more plot centric than I usually like my captions to be, but it's always good to throw in some variety to my normal style of captioning.

All Over Again

So here is that quickie I promised (I know, I barely caught the deadline of the weekend, but Sunday night is better than Monday morning, right?)

I decided to play around with this one a little bit, and in doing so my sight might have gone past my reach, but whatever. I've been sitting on this image for a while and I knew I wanted to do something with brainwashing, but I wanted to take it further than that. So I started tweaking around the motivation used to keep a mindless servant "happy." I tried the normal tg standards of having a craving for cock implanted and all that jazz, but honestly it felt rather cookie-cutter, it's been done over and over again and I didn't see myself chartering any new territory with that approach. So I went the other direction. The individual chooses to remain subservient not out of any pleasure they obtain from the arrangement, but out of fear of the alternative. Eventually I landed on the idea of a person who doesn't know exactly what has been taken from them, but they know it's painful, a first hand knowledge that ignorance really is "bliss." I probably could have taken it further and found a better balance between being a mindless pleasure drone and a cognitive individual actively seeking an escape from their own past, but I had already been working on this caption longer than I had planned on, so I decided to take what I had so far and shelve further exploration of this idea for another day. I'm not sure when or if I'll revisit this concept again, but I have to say it was fun to mess around with a new idea again.


Friday, June 15, 2012

Status Update

Hey everyone, sorry about the lack of posts this week. A combination of stuff in real life that needed to be taken care of and my decision to start working on some longer pieces have eaten up most of my time these past few days. I've got two new requests to finish plus a new project I'm pretty excited about (at least in theory, we'll see how it turns out) on the way. But in the meantime I'll try to turn out a quickie sometime this weekend to tide you over until one of theses longer series is finished. Thanks for the patience.

Sunday, June 10, 2012

My Sissy

Hey everyone, here's a new caption for your viewing pleasure. This is a bit of a combination between my classic lesbian mistress captions and my newer more introspective stuff. A bit of humiliation, with a bit of forced self-reflection if you will. I'm not sure how I feel about the end result, but I'm glad I made it. I'm still trying to find the direction I want my new captions to generally go in (don't worry I'm still going to shoot for a variety of themes and tones), while keeping the best parts of my earlier work. It's an equally fun and frustrating process, and hopefully it will all lead to better captions for all of us.

But in the meantime, if you want to see my old style at it's best, check out this homage caption made for me by Smitty. Smitty's captions are always brilliant, and his work is a big influence for me to continue pushing my captions to be better. So I was pleasantly surprised and extremely honored that as part of his running homage to fellow cappers he decided to dedicate an entire week to my work. So if you have some time go check out it out. If you like what I post here, I can promise that you're going to love it.

Just...Slipped

This was a fun caption to write as I got to play around with both the mental and physical aspects of a forced transformation, and how the two can play off of each other. I would have liked to have had a third panel as the text is a little on the small side, but I didn't have another image that worked. All things considered though, I'm pretty happy with the way this one turned out.


Sunday, June 3, 2012

Submission to Beauty

It's always a good day when I make a caption with the always lovely Faye Reagan. So I was happy to find the time this afternoon to make the longer cap I mentioned. As far as three panel stories go this one is still pretty short, but it was nice to do something with a little more story than my usual singles. I had some issues writing this one as I felt like it kept coming across as being an almost nonsensical ramble. I think I was just trying to go in too many different directions at the same time. I still feel the final product is a little disjointed, but it's a lot better than where it was after the first draft or two.


Saturday, June 2, 2012

Candy Cane

Here's the second request I did for Candy. Just something fun and slutty, with a hint of bimbo thrown in for good measure. After taking a break from taunting captions it was fun to revisit that tone again. I'm going to try to put together a slightly longer caption in the near future, probably around three panels as it's been over two months since I've done a caption longer than two. Now I just have to find the time to get it done.


Thursday, May 31, 2012

Panty Punishment

What is this, three new captions on three consecutive days? And this is my fourth new caption this week? It's almost like I'm turning out new content on a consistent basis.

This is just another quickie that I'm using to play around with new ideas and new perspectives. Again, it's nothing fancy or really erotic, but hopefully stuff like this will keep the creative juices flowing so when I do get a good idea I don't freeze up with a case of writer's block again.
