I don't want to hear about the F@#$ing Royal Baby!
Made this one for it12707 aka Ginger. She likes chubby girls and/or pregnancy captions .. and I wanted to try to do something special for her since she made me like a 20 panel MOVING caption!! Quite an incredible thing to view! Unfortunately for me, she's not been on the Haven since July 18, so I have no idea if she likes this caption or not. You can never really tell, and sometimes people are just being nice to your face and wouldn't tell you anything honest.
Here is what I said about the caption when I posted it to the Haven:
As someone that has seen so many captions, I tend to spot tropes and tendencies that are often overworked. For awhile now, I've tried to avoid, and sometimes cringe when I see, "(male name) or should I say, (female name)" in a TG caption or story. I know its a product of trying to squeeze someones male and female name into a caption to make it more specialized, but we really need to come up with more subtle and refined ways of integrating names into the caption. I almost feel like I'm reading something crafted by He-Man writers, and all that is missing is : "You are a submissive female now!" ... "I THINK NOT!"I think that does cover it pretty well. I don't think the model in the photo is pregnant, but that little pooch in the front could be the start! Figured I would post this to see if the BBW and Pregnancy people would come out and look this time. The last chubby girl caption STILL hasn't reached 1k hits yet so lets get clicking! LOL
Anyway, I think the best way to conquer these idiosyncrasies is to battle them head on, and turn them on their ear.
Hope you enjoy this one anyway, even though I am probably being a pedantic douche!
PS. Of course, the first paragraph has given me a idea for another caption that is perhaps even more over the top!
Good luck to Alectra, who is also probably giving up doing TG Captions. Been a very busy week!
DISCUSSION QUESTION: Any new overused TG caption elements you've come across recently? Anything in a TG caption or story that just sticks in your craw (whatever the hell THAT is!) and takes away the enjoyment you hoped to get from viewing it?
