The End of the Road - Going Out with a Bang

Before I discuss what the title of this post means, I first want to say thank you to everyone who has ever read one of my posts. Each and every one of you has helped me get to this point. I'm still in awe of the fact that this blog has gotten over five million views. Five million. That number just doesn't make sense to me. Back when I started posting my captions here I had a pipe dream of hitting this number, but I still can't believe I actually got here. So from the bottom of my heart, thank you.

Unfortunately all good things must come to an end.

July will be my last month of actively adding to new content to this blog. I mentioned that I've been thinking about walking away a few months ago, and hinted at it before that, so hopefully this isn't too much of shock to anyone. In truth I've been thinking about stopping for well over a year now. There's a lot of reasons I've decided to call it quits, but the two biggest ones are that I really haven't been personally invested in tg fantasies in a while, and I feel like I've told all the stories I wanted to tell. So rather than dragging on and constantly feeling guilty about the long gaps in my production schedule, I've decided that it's time for me to retire. I don't know if this means I'll be gone for good, you never know if I might have some random burst of inspiration further down the road, but if I'm being perfectly honest I really don't see that happening. I've done what I originally set out to do and then some, plus I met some awesome people along the way.

I recently went back and looked at most of the captions I've written, and while there are definitely some caps that I'd handle differently if I was writing them now, as a whole I couldn't be prouder of the work I've done. Being a part of this community and having the chance to interact with readers and insanely talented creators has truly been a pleasure.

But I'm getting ahead of myself. I'm not saying goodbye just yet. I've got one more month of new content ahead of me, and I want to make it a bigger and better month than this site has seen in years. I'm planing on posting at least 15 new captions (and between you and me I'm going to try to do a good bit more than that).

So here's the deal, if you have ever wanted to request a cap now is your chance. I'm going to be taking the rest of June off, but once July 1st hits I'm going to be devoting almost all of my free time to turning out as many captions as I possibly can. So get your requests in now because I'm planning on using this time off to collect the images I'm going to be using.

I hope you all join me for one last blaze of glory. You all have given me so much, so I want to give you a little bit more before I step away. See you in July.

PS - Some tips about requests
 If you want to increase the likelihood of me choosing to make your request here are some rough guidelines:
  • If you're sending pics with your story the more professional looking the images are, the better chance you have of me using them (take a look at the types of images I've been using in the past year or so to get an idea of the quality of pics I tend to use)
  • I'll try to be as accomodating as possible with the content of the request, but if you've got characters under 18 or incest I'm telling you right now I will change those aspects. I know there are people out there who really like those kinds of stories, but they are a major personal turn off. 
  • I'm probably not going to have time to do a lot of multiple panel stories, so if your request is too long I'll probably have to shorten it. If you think your story might run the risk of getting trimmed let me know which parts you absolutely want me to included and I'll do my best to keep them in.
  • Don't be a dick. Pretty much all of you are awesome but there are a few people who have made requests that I straight up ignored. They are the ones who were blatantly rude and/or spammed me the same ideas over and over again. I don't anticipate this being a problem but I figured I'd throw it in here anyway.
I think that's about it. You can send me requests either by the submission box on the left side of the screen or through email (I'm at 22rauk at gmail). Let's make some great stuff together.
