More Formspring Fun

In this batch of formspring responses, we have requests for captions, explanations, and personal stories from yours truly. This should be fun.


Just a heads up, these next two weeks are going to be pretty busy for me, so I'm apologizing now for slacking off in making new captions for all of you nice people.


First up, the caption request:

"Could you make a transformation caption featuring Emma Stone?"

 While there is no real reason I couldn't, to be perfectly honest I probably won't. I'm not a big fan of using traditional celebrities for my work. But, there is a place where you can find multiple captions featuring the lovely Miss Stone: http://steffiab.blogspot.com/ I know Steffi has actually made several caps using her as the model, although I'm not sure if I would classify any of them as what I consider a "transformation" caption, but either way she has some fantastic captions and I highly suggest all of you check out her blog.

Note: So at the time of writing this Steffi's blog has been taken down. I'm going to leave the link in the post in hope that this is just a temporary mistake and will be corrected quickly.


And now onto the next topic, Seven:

 

"OK, Rauk, so you've done Envy. But what about the 6 remaining Deadly Sins, such as Anger, Avarice, Gluttony, Greed, Lust and Pride? Surely you haven't forgotten them?"

 

Oh ho, dear readers, don't lose faith in me yet. I have in no way forgotten the other delightful vices that make up the seven deadly sins. I've decided to post them intermixed with other captions instead of all at once, as I like the idea of the suspense it creates. It also has to do with the fact that I still haven't found all of the images I want to use, but I became too impatient to wait until I found them and started writing anyway.

But there is one difference between what you've listed and what is on the way; Avarice and Greed are the same thing, so there is one more sin you've left out. I'll leave it up to you to figure out what fills in that blank (or you can just google it).


And finally we have story time:

"I am a straight male. However, I enjoy temporary escapes of crossdressing and reading sissy captions and fiction. I am quite comfortable with my sexuality, but I am afraid others would not understand. Have you ever told anyone what you do? How'd it go?"

As I personally don't crossdress, I can't comment on what it would be like to share that fact with anyone else. There are much better people in this community to talk to about that than I, but I obviously can relate to reading sissy captions, seeing as I've written more than a few myself.

But even if you want to put the whole "sissy" aspect aside; have I ever told anyone that I write captions that feature male to female transformations? Nope.

Why? I'm not entirely sure. I guess there just isn't anyone in my life right now that I'm close enough to that I feel the need to share that part of my life with. I know there are a lot of people who are concerned with sharing their tg fantasies with their significant other, but as I'm currently single that's just not an issue for me at the moment. And seeing as I don't discuss "normal" porn with my family I've never seen the need to bring it up there either.

I have told a few of my friends that I've written erotica, but I've never gone further than that and they didn't press the issue. I'm not sure if fear is the reason I've not shared my hobby with anyone in real life, as I tend to be a pretty private person who doesn't share much anyway, but neither can I say that I wouldn't be nervous telling someone about this blog.

I'm proud of the work I do here, and I know it's made me a better writer. I guess the biggest thing is I don't want people to dismiss what I'm doing as just part of some weird fetish and nothing more. I run a relatively successful blog that focuses on publishing my own creative work as a part of a larger community. It just so happens that the theme of what I do is tg. 

So yeah, I guess I am afraid that people won't understand what I do. Not so much because I'm afraid of how the subject matter might influence their opinion of my sexuality, as I know who I am and no one else is going to change that, but because I'm afraid of people missing the reason I find value in running this blog. It's so easy to write off what captioners do as just a fetish, or just about the pornography and sexual release (to be fair many of captions do fall into this category, particularly my earlier work). But it's so much more than that, and I never want to have it devalued just because someone sees it as solely being about tg. 

I'm sorry if that wasn't overly helpful, as I basically said "I have no experience with sharing an extremely private part of my sexual life, but here's a rant about my insecurities of being an author."

I wish you the best of luck in whatever you decide to do, and hopefully in the near future I can write an extension of this piece about how I successfully shared this blog with someone in the real world.



So that wraps up this round of formspring fun. If you have any questions or requests for me just throw them in the box on the side of this blog or shoot me an email at 22rauk@gmail.com

  2. How sad to see that blog closed and now only up as a archive. I loved reading the captions over there .. and that was one blog I checked close to daily. The writing was incredible and the pics were tasteful. -- Monica
