Up the Staircase Quickly
Well, I figured I would post another caption, since there seems to be one person out there that is disappointed that I haven't posted any captions in awhile (I have gotten like 1 vote for "post less like this" for all the discussion postings I've done) so I figured I would capitulate and post one.
Seriously though, if you love TG captions, why aren't you a member of Rachel's Haven yet? I think I've posted almost 1000 captions there, and there are so many talented captioners among the Havenettes that you'll never run out of stuff to look at.
I made this caption "realistic" even though it involves magic. How is it realistic, you ask? Well, first off, if someone on the street turned you into a woman, would you really be cocky and demanding, all "you change me back right now or I'll ..." Dude, she just turned you into a chick, what makes you think you have ANY power whatsoever?!? You would probably do what Jake did in this caption, run home to his wife, try to convince her of what happened, and see if she could fix things. Well, at least that is what I think. Your results may vary!
I like captions that are grounded in reality, yet have that magical nature to it. Perhaps it is comforting to think that situations exist slightly to the left of real perception? Not sure what it is, but maybe my fine readers can enlighten me!
DISCUSSION QUESTION: How grounded in reality should "magic" TG captions be? Should it be totally realistic, except for the method of change? Should it be a total flight of fancy? Somewhere in between?
Also, feel free to post comments in any of the other postings. This blog is not about "just the most recent posting" but an open-ended discussion.
