A Boy Named Sue .. and disappointments!
This was created for the person now known as "Emily" on the Haven. Rachel had a little contest to name give her boyfriend a female name, since she was sick of calling him "the boy" when talking about him, and when he was en femme, she wanted to use a female name. Not sure the winner got anything other than that satisfaction that they'd named Rachel's concubine, but what the hell? It was fun.
I decided to go the easy route, and use a song lyric to make a silly little pop culture caption. He already was known as "the boy" so it wasn't a stretch to hit upon "A Boy Named Sue" by Johnny Cash. Hell, the only thing I did was cut out a verse or two of the song. My thought was that being named Sue would just cause him to be more and more feminine as time went along, resigning to the fate that his name provided.
Since this was one of the few times I had a story before I had a picture, it all hinged on finding something that would work. Not only does the picture fit, I think it makes the caption 100 percent better than it would've been otherwise.
DISCUSSION QUESTION: Where the hell are all the fans of pregnancy captions? People who MAKE captions were looking forward to hearing why fans enjoy them. All the usual commenters were looking for input, and yet ZERO replies.
I know they HAVE to be popular, as I've gotten almost 3k in hits since that post was uploaded, and I've gained a few new followers. Even though they were posted 3 days later, they are only 10 hits behind the previous post that had a blowjob in the caption.
Here was a chance to talk about what makes preggo caps enjoyable. I really am disappointed in the lack of comments, since this specifically was geared towards readers, not creators. My plan originally was to make a few captions based on what information was given, with the possibility that those commenting would be STARRING in them. Oh well, I guess that saves me the effort I was going to put into it.
