The Results are In!

The results of the poll are in, and I'd like to thank each of you who voted.  Your feedback is most appreciated.  I'm sure some of you noticed that I put the poll on both of my blogs, and a lot of you probably even voted in both.  However, for the sake of expedience, I've combined the results.

25 people said that my stories are "Professional."  It came in second place (by one vote).  I was a bit surprised by this result (pleasantly) as I would have classified my writing as either "Good Amateur" or "Almost Professional."  That so many of you think so highly of my work is quite flattering. 

26 people said that my stories are "Almost Professional," making it the winner.  Again, this tells me that my writing has come a long way, and that I'm on the cusp of putting out some really good material.

12 people would classify my work as "Good Amateur," putting it in a distant third place.  Personally, this is where I would put my work.  I don't really spend any time editing or trying to polish any of it, so it lacks that little extra "oomph" to put it over the top.  However, I do believe that, with a little editing, many of my stories could be placed a notch or two higher.

Only 3 people classified my work as "Average."  This made it the second to last place finisher, and that's not altogether displeasing to me.  Call my stuff good or bad, but as long as you feel something for it (either negative or positive), I'm much happier than if you just forgot it altogether.

8 people classified my work as "Below Average."  That number was a little higher than I expected, but oh well.  If any of you who voted that way could tell me what you think makes it below average, I will do everything I can to improve it.  Either way, I thank you for your honesty.

And the stat I love most -- 0 people classified my work as "Bad."  That, readers, is music to my ears. 

Again, I'd like to thank you all for your votes, your honesty, and, most of all, for even reading these blogs.  I'll keep writing (sometimes more slowly than some would like) and captioning so long as people keep visiting my sites.

Ch-ch-changes!

The release of the Omar Bell virus (or biological agent, if you prefer -- the world still isn't sure which it was, really) changed the world. Yes, that's why it's called the Great Change. But it went much farther than a simply altering the physical characteristics and mindsets of white males. Sure, that's where it began, but the effects were far-reaching and all encompassing.

For example, let's take a look at prostitution. Initially, it was thought that many bois, unable to physically perform their former jobs, would turn to the world's oldest profession. It made sense, at least on paper. Bois, with their heightened sexual needs (at first, their fluctuating hormone levels sent them into a state much like a female animal in heat), seemed a perfect fit. And at first, that was the case.

Over time, though, those bois garnered less and less interest. Simple math is the reason.

Men, by then, made up a little more than thirty percent of the country's population. Bois made up about twenty percent, and women made up the other fifty. Taking into account homosexuality (bois and women who preferred either other bois or women), that left men outnumbered nearly two to one. So they had their pick of sexual partners.

And so, over time, men quit paying for what was so readily available.

Ah, but there are always those who will seek to profit in such ways, and soon, male prostitutes began cropping up. Bois and women couldn't get enough. Prostitution was soon legalized in forty-eight of the fifty states, and their prices skyrocketed. After only a few years, only the rich could really afford them, and so, it became a status symbol. The richest bois and women would employ multiple men in such a capacity.

Strange how the world works, huh?

I need Feedback

Ah, another day, another poll. As usual, I'm looking for feedback. This time, I'm trying to determine where I stand in terms of how professional my writing is. So, the options are as follows:

1. Professional: It's as well-written as an average professional writer's output.
2. Almost Professional: It's close to as well-written as an average professional writer's output.
3. Good Amateur: It's not quite up to professional level, but it's a cut above other amateur writers' work.
4. Average: It's nothing special. Not bad. Not good. Just right in the middle.
5. Below Average: Most of what you read is better than my work.
6. Bad: I need to really rethink my writing style.

I know it's difficult to judge someone's work, so I only really ask for your initial impression. Don't overthink it. Also, I would prefer if you only consider my text stories when answering this poll (assuming anyone actually does so).

Anyway, thanks in advance for your input.

A Blog I like

I wanted to make a post drawing attention to a blog I've really come to enjoy reading. It's Interracial Sissy Captions . It's a fun blog, and features some sexy little pictures/captions.

Where does a boi fit into an Absolut World?



I remember in one of my first college art classes, we spent almost a week studying Absolut Vodka ads, and since then, I've always loved them. Some are subtle. Others are quite "in your face." But they're all incredibly creative. So I figured I'd make one to fit into my little world.

Originally, I had planned to have a boi swimming in the bottle, but I couldn't find a suitable photo. So I went with what you see here. Either way, I like it even though it took me a while to do. Hope you do too!

A Request

Hey there folks. I've never asked for source material before; I generally like to find it myself (that's part of the fun!), but I've been absolutely stumped by this. I have an idea for a caption, but I simply can not find a suitable picture. So here I am, asking for help. Let me tell you all what I'm looking for:

Basically, I'm searching for an underwater photograph of a woman. I need it to be a full body shot -- preferably in a bikini, but nude will work. I'd like for her to be swimming towards the surface, but sitting still will work as well. And I need for the photographer to be on the same level as the subject.

I know this is an odd and very specific request, but if anyone can help me with it, let me know. Thanks in advance.

The New Blog is Up!

The new Blog is up. I hope all of you will visit, follow it, and enjoy for as long as I keep posting. The link is:

The Feminization Station

A Few Stray Thoughts



I don't really like the Picassa slideshows, but I guess it's really my only option. I've been using slideshare, but apparently someone tattled on me, and they removed my slideshow. This isn't the first time, but I'm tired of having to re-post. So, I'm going with Picassa for the immediate future. If you happen to know of a better slideshow sharing site/program, please, let me know. Either way, repost of my latest picture story is here. Hope it stays up this time.

Oh, I'll just have the usual...



It's a simple picture with a simple caption, but I kind of like it.  It says so much about the state of the OBU world that bois and girls sharing a man isn't unusual at all. 

I should have a new pictory up in the next few days, and my new site should launch within the week. Once I get that launched, I'll try to finish the second part of "A Cross to Bear." 

Hope you enjoy, and as usual, thanks for being fans.

Clinging to a Former Life...



I've had this picture done for a while, but I hadn't bothered to create a caption for it.  I really like the idea of a really feminine boi with short hair, but I find that it's so hard to find good pictures of short-haired women to alter.  The other ones I have on here I've had to photoshop their hair away, which is, I have to say, an extremely tedious process.  Anyway, hope you enjoy the caption.

An Update

I have decided to create a new site for my other work, but I will continue to update this as frequently as I can.  I haven't decided on a name yet, but I should have it up and going within the next few days.  I'll let you all know when that happens.  The site won't be as focused as this one, and will contain TG captions of all stripes, though I doubt I'll do *many* magical changes, and I will not be doing body swaps.  Anyway, that's that.  I hope you'll all come over and give it a look when I get the site up.

I also have noticed that a few of you run blogs of your own.  If you do, please put a link to your blog in the comments section of this post, and I'll put it into the links section of this site (and the aforementioned site).  I know how much work goes into making captions, writing stories, etc., and I want people to see it.  So just let me know if any of you want me to link to your site. 

Lastly, and this is a completely personal request, I used to frequent a site called "Sissy Trainer."  The person who ran that blog was extremely imaginative and talented.  Sadly, however, that blog went out of commission about a year and a half ago.  I suspect that the person who ran that blog is still creating new work, and I was wondering if any of you have gotten wind of where he/she is posting.  If not, no big deal.  But I figure if I'm averaging 2000 pageviews a day, I'd be silly not to ask if someone out there has any idea about where I can find his/her work.

I should have some new captions up here by the end of the weekend, so you have that to look forward to as well.  Thanks, as always, for being fans.

As good a time as any...

I figure this is a good time to remind you all (especially you new folks) that I have written a few stories that aren't set in the Omar Bell Universe.  These stories can be found on Fictionmania or you can simply follow the links located on the Non-OBU page on this site.  The link to that page can be found in the top left corner of the blog.  I know I haven't been posting as frequently as I did when I started this blog, so this might be a good time to give those stories a look. 

That said, I wanted to pose a question to you all.  I have a few picture stories that aren't set in this universe (well, more than a few, truth be told), and I've been contemplating how best to put them out there.  I have my Imagefap profile, and I have this blog.  However, I don't really think these fit within the themes I've set for those two forums.  So, the solution I've been kicking around is to create another blog with a general feminization theme.  Before I do, though, I'd like to get your opinions (if you even care one way or another).  The pros and cons are as follows:

1. Posting on this blog:  Pros:  The site already exists with an established fanbase.  It would be easier, and less time-consuming.  Cons:  Feminizations outside of the OBU don't really fit within the theme of this blog, and so might confuse new or even established fans. 

2. Posting on imagefap:  Pros:  Anything goes on that site.  I have a bigger fanbase there than here.  It's easy to upload.  Cons:  No slideshows.  The blog mechanic is clunky.  Feedback is minimal.

3. Creating a new blog:  Pros: It maintains the continuity of this site.  I'd have a place to post my non-OBU stories.  Cast a wider web, so to speak.  Feminization is a popular fetish.  Racially motivated feminization is more of a niche.  Much more varied tools than Imagefap.  Cons:  It might take away from this site.  I only have so much time, and another blog might end up taking away some of the time I would normally use on this site.  Starting from scratch (with no fans, followers, etc.) can be daunting. 

I have to say that I'm leaning towards creating a new blog, but that could be my general "grass is always greener on the other side" mentality.  Anyway, feedback would be appreciated.  Thanks for being fans.
