The Bridesmaid

  1. I knew from the first panel I was going to love this captioning. The model is gorgeous and your dialog for her felt so real. I only wish it were much, much longer. The details were perfect, so convincingly real and tender. And the guinea pig and "not on speaking terms" with her fanny - what a hoot!
    Thank, Rachel...

  2. Glad you liked it. It seems like a while since I did a pure, happy fun/positive cap, so I think maybe this is just what the doctor ordered...

  3. I have always found your caps to be well on the positive, uplifting and often humorous side... Thank you for your efforts.

  4. Yeah, but there are some that are darker - quite a few have at least some element of coercion or punishment. Reflections, Ballet Lessons, to name a few of the relatively recent ones.
    It's nice to do a story where the protagonist just goes 'Become a girl? Yeah, sure, sounds fun!'

  5. It's all relative. There are a lot of caps out there and I find a majority to have too heavy of a mix of misogyny, crudity, meanness... I see your "darker" stories to be softened quite lovely by humor, wittiness, great monologue, plots often given to positive transitions of the persons feminized, intriguing slants on gender issues that dig deeply into the psychology of transformation into womanhood... These are the spices that pull in your audience with the visceral quickening of the blood at the imagining of such piercings of the veil, the plunge into the emotional rapids of such a soulful metamorphosis... often with the characters' breathless realization that there is no turning back.
