or maybe it wasn't hiding as much as you thought!
Today's caption is about discovery, for both James in the caption, and us the readers. I have to admit, I can be fucking jaded when it comes to the whole TG scene. Been reading Fictionmania since it existed, and before that was awaiting ftp updates from the Nifty archives and after that, the various emailing lists that catered to transformations of different sorts. When something new comes along, its wonderful to see, but alas, that doesn't happen very often. Its why I still love the Haven, as we still get people that are just venturing into our little subculture grin like kids on Christmas morning looking under the tree for their presents. Its funny to call their feelings "innocent" because of the subjects implied, but it is like taking a kid to Disney World and they get their first look at Cinderella's Castle up close.
And that is what I wanted to convey in this caption. The starting out on the journey of self-discovery, with perhaps a supportive partner too! I wanted to give it a bit of squirminess and apprehension, while playing with what can be an embarrassing situation. Finding out you have these feelings in front of someone you probably like and want to impress can be frightening, especially if you've tried to block them out in the past. The picture played a big part in the development of this caption, as the model is not big chested, and the right parts are covered up. The outfit is likely one a guy would wear when first starting out dressing up with a female friend's help, and the hair isn't obviously styled or colored in an overtly feminine way.
Its hard to determine if the main character is denying what he feels or isn't quite sure how he feels, but isn't that true anyway? Once something becomes commonplace, the stakes are raised. I think anyone that has been in this mindset before knows how it most likely escalates until 'stasis' is achieved. Whether that is complete dressing on the weekend, or panties underneath work clothes, or having your wife fuck some guy on the back patio as she rents your french maid ass to a canasta party her sister holds for her Zumba class every other Sunday. Each level is something refreshingly new to those who haven't been there before, and give a certain pleasant memory to the more experienced in the scene. "Those were the days," indeed!
Celebrate what you enjoy, and lift up those who follow in your footsteps. Give your knowledge and understanding without pissing out their fire before it can even get going. And lastly, try not to be as condescending as this entire blog post sounds! It wasn't my intent!
DISCUSSION QUESTION: What excited or thrilled you the most when you first had the TG bug hit you? For those old enough, it can be pre-internet. How long did it take before it escalated somehow, whether from finding something online or in real life, and how consuming was it? Has it leveled off, reached a point of consistancy, or varied between periods of binges and purges?
Of course, you are very welcome to talk about the caption itself and what I wrote about above. There should be another sissy caption coming soon, starring Leeanne, so keep popping in!
