This is already one of my favorite captions I've done in the last 5 years or so. See why inside!
Make sure you read first so spoilers won't affect you in any way! You've been warned!
First off, you probably recognize the model form previous captions that I've done. She's pretty, with really long hair, and being short and slightly fluffy is a turn on for many TG fans. When I saw the set that this picture came from, my heart almost leaped out of my chest! Honestly, I have no idea what the intent was to be dressed like that, but I knew I could definitely use that to my advantage. It's not often you get to see a model you love to imagine yourself as dressed up like a drag queen on a float.
And yes, that is the direction I went towards. Dawn Commentator recently had a "dark side" caption offer where she would take your suggestion and go where you usually would not go, in order to stretch out our preferences a bit. I asked for something I don't usually request, because I don't really expect most people to get it right. I went with:
Turned/compelled into 'Dee Dee the drag queen', but specifically with some sort of procedure leaving the penis much smaller than it used to be. Sarina Valentina would be the perfect model for this idea, and if you use her, I wave the "don't want to see male genitalia" rule. I know you like challenges, so I will include at your discretion, "no revenge scenario" but could still be forced / cajoled, etc .. just not a "insulted/beat up a TG person or what have you".She did a great job with my suggestion, and my original pitch to Dawn was still rattling around my head when I saw the picture. I used what I asked Dawn to do as a reference point, but knew I could veer off if need be as it would be a blog exclusive.
Because I didn't want to go a revenge route, I thought up a "Three's Company" plot of being misunderstood to add up to a comedy of errors where a straight guy went with a close friend to support her at a big gay pride parade. Took a little bit to set up and then, BAM throw out the blue dialog to highlight where his speech was totally taken the wrong way. The "I'm coming out .. to support my friends .." etc was the first thing that I conjured in my brain when it went in this direction, and as I was typing, the throwing up in the coat room completed the mistake.
Add a bit of The Kink's Lola's plot-line, some poppers that make you very suggestible, and some very friendly Fairy Godmothers around to make "Genderella" the queen of the ball. "You are going to LURVE your new self. Straight is normal, and normal is boring as hell sweetie! Do we look bored, Sugar? Just act like us and do what we do Honey Pie. This is your future! Free to be, you and me!"
I just love the whole gestalt of this caption, integrating the photo into the story and weaving in and out, even including the chess board she is standing on, along with those wonderful heels that definitely don't match the outfit, but certainly figure into the ending zinger.
Could I have gone on an made a 2 or 3 panel series and elaborated more? Perhaps. But I kind of like the idea of leaving the "programming" aspect to our imagination, and also leave that ambiguity to what happens next? Do they go to the parade as planned, and his lesbian friend tries to get him back to his old self that night or the next morning? Does he wake up as his old self wondering what happened .. and there is lots of video of what he did? Stay the way he changed as he realized that it really WAS who he's been all along? Something else entirely? I love the lack of concrete story that keeps it pinned down, and lets us give it our own flavor and conclusion.
DISCUSSION QUESTION: So what did YOU think about the caption: good, bad, or indifferent? What do you think happened while he was drugged out? What happened afterwards?
