Going out tonight, dressed up male style. Gah, wish I was in a skirt and heels.

If I were to write something long form...

Where would I start? Willing or unwilling? Cute or naughty? Modern or historical (or time travel)? And which style to end up with? Bride? Schoolgirl? Secretary? Stepford Wife? Victorian lady?

Becoming an authoress?

Considering writing some of my fantasies at length, for here, maybe Fictionmania... or the Kindle, considering how short most of the 'books' there on the subject are.

The Change-Up

Just watched this on TV. Body swap between two guys, caused by a wish when both relieving themselves in a fountain, which is then removed when they get back there next morning. The thinness of that excuse is almost charming...

How do I follow that?

Well, if I were organised, with a caption of my own. But. obviously...

I'm typing this with painted nails.

Here's to another evening spent properly dressed, for the first time in too long.

Miss Cloud

How should we talk about Final Fantasy VII's crossdressing sequence? by Sarah Nyberg.

I'm older than Sarah when I encountered, I knew my desires and had been keeping them secret for years already. It felt strange to see them being acted out in such a location. Strange... and good.

(Being able to change shape like a Terminator would be fun, of course.)

Thursday, 16 July 2015

I need your clothes, your boots and your handbag.

At no point in the new Terminator movie does Emilia Clarke wear so much as a waitress uniform. Boo!

I want a movie where she looks more like this.
Is that wrong?

Max's Big Bust

An anime-style video game on Kickstarter, nearing its stretch goal with twelve days to go, about the perils of picking up mysterious artifacts at crime scenes. Hint: the perils are TG-ish. (Thanks to Ursine for the linky.)

Tangerine

A new comedy-drama about two transgender prostitutes, and apparently the first film shot entirely on an iPhone. Which I'm sure must have annoyed someone at Apple. And hopefully pleased others.

Review found at The Mary Sue while looking for news about any more fantastical TG story content at Comic Con since Crosswind.

I don't watch many non-fantasy TG stories, they're so often reflective of the most depressing stories from the community. This is a comedy, so we'll see.

Bride Envy

There are currently 1,789 stories in the "Wedding Dress Or Married" category at Fictionmania, so I'm not exactly alone here.

The thought of being dressed in a beautiful bridal gown, very traditional and as feminine as can be, with a tight corset bodice, full skirts with petticoats, all in white silk or satin... and then to walk down the aisle, with so many guests there admiring my beauty... and then to be wed, and made into a wife...

Always a guest, never a bride

I attended a wedding today. Cue spike in Bride Envy. The reception had no dress code, so the women mostly dressed up and half the men made some effort. Another nice visual and tactile reminder of how much less fun men’s clothing is. Oh well.

Elliquiy celebrations

To celebrate my Elliversary I got a new avatar, based on this photo...

And put that poor Civil War soldier in her first dress...

And added some suggestions to my RP requests:

Defeated: (M/TG probably BON)
A defeated enemy, at the mercy of his captor - who wants to shame him in defeat. Physical changes, coerced dressing and behavior, possibly in a historical setting?

Transformed To Order: (M/TG probably BON) I've attracted someone's attention and he has decided I would be a perfect subject for an experiment in transformation. Will I submit to the changes? Will I learn to like them - and him?

Elliquiy

It's my Elliquiy anniversary - seven years, during which I've even managed to finish writing a few stories. (Statistically, more with Wenterburn than anyone else. After last week, possibly more with Wenterburn than everyone else.)

Roleplaying / shared fiction writing by forum can be frustratingly slow, even without sudden stops and disappearing partners, especially when a story really has your interest. Especially if it's a sexy scene rather than a dramatic one, and they often are.

If I were a lot less lazy, I'd collect some of the completed ones (and complete some of the incomplete ones) to put on Fictionmania or somewhere. See how many can people work out where one writer starts and the other ends. As it is, at least I have some readers there. I'm hoping I can share the current non-public American Civil War forced feminization story I'm co-writing when it's finished. Yum!

Bodyswaps again

This time in the cinema, as Sir Ben Kingsley is offered the chance to be young again, and taller and buffer than  he was at that age, by being downloaded into Ryan Reynolds. Apparently it's not the old Joss Whedon script of the same idea (boo!) which is fair enough as it's about someone taking the offer happily rather than having to, and it's directed by Tarsem Singh, who made the oh-so-pretty The Cell and The Fall but apparently doesn't get to do anything so crazy this time (boo!)... but still, if you could be turned into someone new, healthy, young and pretty...

(See Surrogates for a version where everybody's at it, and yes, someone uses it to go TG in the very first scene.)

Body swapping

Would you want to switch bodies with someone? I would... if I had a say in who!

A new comic from Gail Simone coming soon drops two people in the deep end, TG and all. Sounds like it'll be a fun ride!

My pal Ranae (head of tgrpclassifieds) really likes body swap stories, so I'll make sure she sees this...

For my 400th post - For EVERY Girl!

Girl Scouts are awesome. Giving back a $100,000 donation because the donor wanted a guarantee it wouldn't go to help trans girls. And so someone reading about this organized a donation online, which is currently over $300,000.
