Where I've Been and What I'm Planning

Hey loves, I know I've kind of fell off the face of the Earth a bit and wanted to explain what's going on with myself.

First off, there is no caption with this post. Normally, I hate the idea of posting without some kind of content that people come here for but I don't have anything made up since my last post but I still want everyone to know I'm around.

If you don't remember, my wife and I welcomed our first child to the world back in Nov and things were going great until about a month ago. My wife developed postpartum depression and had to be leave work due to how severe it was. To add the problem, her doctor had given her a highly addictive medicine and she has become dependent on it or else she'll have panic attacks and even seizures. Now, she's taking therapy and working on losing the dependency now that we have changed doctors. Because of all of this, I had to take a second job to make ends meet and rarely have had any free time to work on captions.

I still have a huge interest in making captions and still write down new ideas constantly. I have made attempts to make new content but it's been write maybe a paragraph then go to sleep. The results haven't felt like a single caption and more like I'm piecing things together. They just don't live up to my standards and I refuse to post things I don't feel are good enough.

In the end, I'm still going to make captions but right now I just don't have the time. I have no clue when I'll be back but I will be some day.

With love,

Ophelia

Trades- Investigated and I'm Finally Better

Hey loves, I'm finally feeling better after having the flu for about three weeks now. Honestly, I wanted to have much more done in this time frame but this sickness really kicked me down.

I don't view the time as a waste however. I did a lot of planning for the future during this time. Pretty much, the rest of my prearranging for Hexing House is finished besides the things I can't predict. (aka voting results) Season one has whole is complete and honestly this should help the speed of it all as most of the early episodes weren't fully planned while the later ones where. (if that makes any sense) I also found a solution to one of the last real "issues" I see with the series as a whole. I hope the results are well received even though I don't know when they will be seen.

Lastly, I leave you with a quick caption I made. I wanna try to start branching out the hosts of Hexing House into other captions more. They've played so much behind the scenes that I think it'd be fun to start bringing them more into the light. Honestly, I have a lot of fun the the characters and hope you all enjoy reading them as well.

With revitalized love,

Ophelia

Hexing House- Getting to Know Your Hosts

Hey loves, sorry for the long gap in posts. I've been getting over the flu for the last couple of weeks and had nearly to desire to even get out of bed let alone write. That being said, I will be starting work on Hexing House Episode Three shortly. I wanted to have these released weeks ago and the episode nearly finished by now but nature said no.

Today, I give you guys an in depth look at your lovely hosts. These two characters are honestly very close to me. Each represent a half of my own personality in a lot of ways. You see I was always told "If you can explain something, it's science and if not, it's magic. Ms Cream and Madame Hex are the results of that thought along with a few of my personal styles and hobbies. It also may help to see exactly what each does in my captions behind the scenes.

I hope you all enjoy them and for fun, I'm going to put up a vote for your personal favorite. (It won't effect Hexing House in any way.)

With recovering love,

Ophelia

(P.S. I hope your prepared for the final shake up in Hexing House will be announced next episode. I won't give away much but let's just say some one is getting bored and wants to make it interesting. Not even Hex or Cream will be prepared.)

Haven Constest Entry and I'm Miss October!

Hello loves, I going to try to keep it short and sweet tonight.

I've got a few projects in the works right now. (One of them should be sooner than the others) Currently, bigger projects (mainly Premiers and Hexing House) are done while I alternate with single post projects. I wanna keep it that way but it also seems to slow down my posts. I'm honestly trying to find a better way but I'm also pretty strapped on time lately.

The Haven Febuary Contest theme was fantasy. It's pretty open ended but I thought I'd threw myself into the ring. Link to the contest and all the other entries is here: https://rachelshaven.com/index.php?option=com_wrapper&view=wrapper&Itemid=125

Next, I have a kinda unique caption added onto this. I volunteered to be calendar girl this year for the Haven Calendar. I had to make a caption about myself. I decided to make it a little more challenging. I hope you ladies enjoy it.

Lastly, I want to thank you all for the praise on Hexing House Episode Two. Many of you have reached out to me about how much you enjoyed it and I tried to respond to every one of them. But, in case I missed any, I wanted to put this here. I really enjoy writing this series and it's becoming very much a labor of love. Hopefully, I'll keep it to everyone expectations. Don't forget to vote before Feb 4th.

With love,

Ophelia

Thank You All for a Year to Remember.

Hello loves, I'm so excited to be here right now. Today is the one year make of the blog and of myself making captions. I know this is going to turn into a long post but I'm having a hard time containing myself.

Thank you all first off. It's been amazing becoming apart of this community and getting to meet the wonderful people that I have. I never imagined anything like it would have came from this. I honestly keep every email and comment ever sent to me. I always go back and read it if I ever need a pick me up and I just can't express how that feels.

When I started, I never thought I'd make it as far as I have. I started with no experience with any of this and really no plan. I just wanted to try to make captions and see how it all went. I remember checking every day my first month and only see like 3 views a day and then I saw the remove my views option. They were almost all me lol. It wasn't till I did the original Circe's Island post that I really got noticed.

It took almost 2 months just to get 5k views and that felt like I had conquered the world. Then in another month, it doubled. Now days, I get more than my first three months in just a single post and that is truly unbelievable. I don't like talking about view a lot anymore because I fear it gives off the wrong impression but in the first year, this blog has been viewed over 310 thousand times.

I really do this now for you ladies. I love knowing that there's people who check nearly everyday and I want to make sure I give them a reason to keep coming back. Then, there's mail. They've always been amazing to read. I had people coming to me for advice when I felt like the biggest amateur but I never wanted to say "I have no clue." I wanted to encourage them. I wanted them to feel what I did. I want this community to grow and I want to do everything I can help it.

So I want to start something new. I want to start doing featured blogs and really showcasing other people who are new to the community and even the ones that have been doing this longer than I have. So, if your just starting out and want a shout out, just leave a comment or send me a message. I'll happily do it in my next post. Even if you just want to talk or bounce ideas, that's fine too. I'll try to help any way I can. I hope by the end of next year, I'll be bragging about the new blogs that have flourished and just how much mine has.

And, always feel free to send me a request. I'll try my best to make it for you. I'll admit there are things I'm not the best at but I'll least give it my all. You've seen some of the crazy ideas I've had. I'm sure yours will be just as possible.

For this post, I wanted to do something special. So I went back and re-edited some of my first captions. I wanted to keep the theme of the transformation but also kind of make them how I would now. I had a blast writing these and I honestly plan do it with more of them. (A glorious re-written Circe's Island is so tempting.)

I'm also going to take down the old what do you come here for poll and I want to put of a new one just asking what are your favorite things about the blog. I'm just mostly curious.

Lastly, just a quick update on episode two of Hexing House. It's past the half way point. I had this project pop up in the middle and the trip. Plus I have one more quick one to make but I'm hoping to have it up within a week or so.

Thanks again for the wonderful year. Let's make the next one even better,

Ophelia The GameMaster


Re-Edit-Outbreak- Tricked- Removing the Game portion, I looked at really trying to capture the same idea of a explosive transformation

Original- Cheater- When I first did this one, I wanted a quick explosive transformation. I really didn't want the victim to have anytime to react
Re-Edit- Cursed- This one was the trickiest of all of them. I wanted to keep the Brothel feel and style without the Brothel. I thought the best way to handle it was a simple curse.

Original- Welcome to the Brothel- This was sorta the ground work of the original Brothel without being it. Being one of my earliest captions, I wanted to work with the idea of a game really altering reality.

Re-Edit- Welcome to the Witching Hour- The Original set up the Brothel, my oldest series and I thought it was fitting to use it to sorta re-establish it under my new concept for the series, The Witching Hour. The whole idea is still the same just a new name and possibilities

Original- Welcome to the Brothel- This was the caption I credit to finding my own style. I wanted to leave the reader trapped with options was the idea. Even after they finished, I wondered if they would continue the story still willing to serve or try to resist only to become worse.
