Misfile First Day

Related imageRelated imageMisfile on Amazon

So, the other day I am searching around through Amazon, when their mind-reading algorithm suggests I might be interested in a short film based on the comic book Misfile. Might?  I ordered it and watched it immediately.

For those unfamiliar with Misfile, it’s a comic featuring a pair of characters who, due to a celestial filing error, have been changed.  One, Ash, has been turned into a girl, while the other, Emily, is now two years younger, which in her case is an epic headache as she was a high-school senior on her way to Harvard.

The comic has a devoted following among TG readers, as you might imagine, since it explores a sudden sex-change where the male character remembers his life as a male, but everyone else thinks he was born and has always been a girl.

So, what of the short film?  Well, the best word in this case would be promising.  There were things I liked and things that left me– not liking.  To start with the stuff I liked– the chemistry between Ash and Emily really started to come along as the pilot progressed.  Early on, it seemed the actors were a little uncomfortable with their characters and maybe each other, but by the end there was a very nice scene where we could see them opening up to each other, and it made me interested to see more.  I am always most interested in TG stories that deal with relationships and feature character development.

How much does it really explore the gender-angle?  Not as much as I would like.  Like any straight high-school male, Ash is appalled to find himself female, and the change in status alone is enough to freak him out. He doesn’t even need to interact with the world to be horrified to be one of them now, and there is a nice moment in his early hysteria where Emily tells him maybe he should feel proud to have been upgraded to female.  The rest of what could have been interesting happens off screen– he tells us how he lost a drag race due to his now tiny feet, mentions some guys consoled him but ended up trying to get in his pants– and he is clearly mortified to have been the object of this kind of male attention– but it would have been so much more fun to see it happening and watch his reaction when he realized guys were trying to get in his pants.

Based on the research I have done, this is a pilot for a hoped for series, and in the making of video it clearly shows they put together a crew and brought in some legit equipment, so there is a commitment to making something awesome.  However, it feels like there was a certain amount of “still figuring this out” happening, which is okay given that this is a pilot.  Some of the shots seem poorly planned, the lighting off, the acting is sometimes tentative.  But, again, this is a pilot, so we can forgive.  Go back and watch the pilot for Seinfeld, and you will be surprised at how unready for prime time that show seemed at first.

As the pilot went along, I felt the chemistry between Ash and Emily got stronger, and I would be interested to see more of these characters as they continue their journeys and Ash finds himself having to be female in groups of people, especially at school, where his sense of identity is sure to be challenged more fully. I feel these actors will be really fun to watch as they develop these roles!

I am a huge fan of DIY projects, and I think it is awesome these creators have had the courage to go out and make it happen!

Five Questions with Nikki Jenkins

The Curse by [Jenkins, Nikki S.]Nepotism (The Omar Bell Universe Book 3) by [Jenkins, Nikki S.]

 

Hey, folks.  Nikki Jenkins was awesome enough to take the time to answer a few questions about her work as a writer of TG fiction.  I am a big fan of her writing, which you can find on Amazon.com. Also, be sure to check out her website!  ALERT:  The website does include some nudity!

  1. Talk about your interest in creating TG fiction.

 

Going back as long as I can remember, I’ve been interested in TG fiction, but my first real exposure to it was an illustrated site that dealt with the feminization of men by strong women.  I can’t for the life of me remember the name of it (it’s been quite a while), but it sparked an interest in this very specific type of erotica.

 

For the longest time, I was a spectator; I simply consumed whatever media was out there (mostly on Fictionmania or a few caption sites).  The reality of it is that I’m a bit obsessive, and when I’m interested in something, I focus on it pretty intently, and it wasn’t long before I’d exhausted the supply of fiction out there.  So to satisfy that “obsession”, I really didn’t have much of a choice but to start writing my own stories.  That was the genesis of the Omar Bell Universe, which in turn led to my caption site and my subsequent work.

 

I guess the simplest answer to your question is that I started to create TG fiction because I wanted a better (and more plentiful) representation of my own personal kinks.  However, once I started, I can’t deny that the positive reinforcement of the mostly-good responses to my work propelled me to commit more time to this part of my life.

 

  1. In the Omar Bell books, as well as in works like a Warrior Reborn, the characters are radically feminized in mind and body, but kept biologically male.  Can you discuss why this transformation interests you, and how it is different to explore than a full biological change as happens in The Curse?

 

In most of my stories, I think the retention of “male-ness” is important because it provides a tangible representation of the internal duality of the protagonist’s nature.  Sure, once the transformation is complete, each protagonist (like Tristan, in A Warrior Reborn) is quite feminine, body and mind, but he retains certain aspects of masculinity (the penis and a lack of breasts) because it’s important for the reader (and the character) to be reminded that this is NOT a woman.   That feeds into the “humiliation” of it all because they can never forget that they’re different.

 

With The Curse, the humiliation aspect of a forced transformation was covered with Anna, so it was completely unnecessary (and a bit redundant) for Josh’s character to dwell on that.  So I decided to give him a bit of closure and a fresh start.

 

Literary reasons aside, if I had to examine my personal attraction to that sort of transformation, I’d  pinpoint my fascination with anything that’s abnormal.  I like weird kinks; it’s as simple as that.

 

 

  1. What are some of your favorite TG works, and why do they stand out for you?

 

I think my favorite TG work is an interactive story presented by “Sissy Trainer” on a now-defunct blog of the same name.  It was called “Pink Slipped” and focused on a young man who loses his job as a construction worker and is forced to take a job as a secretary at his girlfriend’s office.  He’s subsequently feminized, objectified, and ultimately used by his superiors.  It was a great (but very simple) story with fantastic visual aids.

 

Second would be a series I found on Fictionmania called “College Changes a Boy” by Taylor Jordan which follows a college boy’s first visit home after a year away at school (during which he changed quite a bit).  It’s written pretty well, but its real strength is that it does a great job contrasting the “before” and “after” versions of the character.  It’s unfinished (sadly), but it’s still worth a read.

 

Of course, I love Bob H’s Switch World series because of its description of a global change, and I absolutely adore “Voices” by TG Cooper for the same reason.

 

There are so many more, mostly available on Fictionmania, but I won’t waste anyone’s time by describing them all.  I do go into a little more detail on my blog, though, if anyone’s interested in my opinions.

 

 

  1. What was the experience like for you when you first put your TG work out there for the public?

 

Nerve-wracking!  Seriously – I remember posting the first Omar Bell story on Fictionmania, and then checking every five minutes to see if anyone had left a review.  I needed that validation, you know?  Once they started rolling in, though, I relaxed a bit.  It was fairly well-received, and I think that justified (in my mind at least) the whole project.

 

There were definitely some comments that made me angry, though.  Dealing with such a touchy subject, I suppose it was inevitable, but I’ll admit I got a bit defensive about some of the negative comments.  I even went so far as to write some responses into the next couple of stories, which, in hindsight, was kind of bad form.

 

When I launched my first blog (a caption site based on the Omar Bell series), I opened myself up to a lot more criticism.  By that point, I was fairly confident in my writing ability, but I wasn’t nearly as convinced that my artistic ability was up to par.  It wasn’t, by the way.  I look back at those first attempts at photo modification, and I cringe.  Still – it had to happen.  I had to progress through that before I could get better.

 

By the time I actually published a story on Amazon, I had pretty tough skin.  I knew there would be detractors, but I also knew that the product (An Experiment) was pretty solid.

 

  1. Tell us about your upcoming projects.

Oh – the fun part!  Between my long-form caption stories, my Amazon releases, and my daily captions, I have a LOT on my plate.  So I have a bit of difficulty nailing down release dates.  But here are my next few projects:

 

  1. Untitled Caption Story (request)

This one is a user-commissioned caption story (about 20-30 frames) that focuses on a young man who’s feminized by his Korean girlfriend.  It’s a fairly simple story, but the visual transformation is fantastic.

 

  1. American Tranny

I’m super excited about this one because it’s a bit of a departure for me because it is definitely NOT erotica.  It’s a story about a teenage transgender girl who is forced to hide her transition from her bigoted father.  After a sexual assault, she’s forced out of the closet, and must confront the challenges associated with being a rape survivor, a transgender girl, and the abandonment of her father.

 

I know – heavy stuff for someone who’s focused primarily on erotica, but I felt that it’s a story that needs to be told.  I’m about a third of the way through with the text (it’s been extensively outlined), so it shouldn’t be that long before it’s published.

 

  1. The Witness

This is an adaptation of one of my caption stories that follows a young man who is forced into hiding after seeing his father’s murder.  The text story will differ from the caption story in a few key ways, but will follow the general plot.

 

  1. More Omar Bell!

I’ve still got about five or six Omar Bell stories to publish.

 

  1. Various

I’m working on a few more stories.  One is a story about a professional basketball player who suddenly starts to transform, and ends up as a twelve-year-old white girl (outlined and started).  Another is a story about two men who, after an encounter with a stripper at a bachelor party, begin to transform (outlined and started).  I have one where I deal with human pets that has barely passed the concept stage.  And finally, I have a story outlined where a young man slowly takes the place of his trophy-wife stepmother.

 

Yeah – I’m a bit flighty and have a ton of projects working at any given time.  Focusing on just one is difficult for me.


Thanks, Nikki. Can’t wait to see your stuff!

Five Questions with Nikki Jenkins

New Book: Daddy In Distress!

coverfinalamazon

Hey, people! My latest book is out. Here’s the blurb and links!

Blurb

When Carmine Infantino wished to understand his teen-age daughter, he never expected to find himself transformed into a beautiful young woman working as a prostitute in Victorian London. The gorgeous young woman he’s become, Cherie Marchant, is the lead character in his daughter’s favorite book, and now Carmine, with his daughter’s help, must adjust to life as a woman while also contending against the world’s most notorious serial killer, Jack The Ripper!

This story features age-regression, graphic depictions of sex, and violence. It is the same premise as the first Trapped in a Teen-Fantasy novel, but with new characters,

Sample

I wish I did, he thought. I wish I could understand her, so I could be there for her…

The lights flickered. A rumble like thunder shook the house.

Carmine staggered. He felt so tired. He stumbled and fell into the easy chair. Reaching out with a shaking arm, he tried to put his beer on the TV table, but it toppled over and fell to the ground, spilling beer across the wood floor. Shit, Carmine thought, his eyelids growing heavy, closing, and the world went dark as he thought… Am I dying?
He found himself drifting, felt like he was passing through a cloud of cotton, and the air smelled of…. Sugar? Spice?
Everything nice?

He heard girls giggling, felt himself spinning, spinning, his skin tingling like he was being gently tickled with a thousand feathers. Everything was dark, and then he heard a woman’s voice say, “Open your eyes.”

Carmine opened his eyes and found himself bombarded with both sights and sounds. The room was lit with flickering torch light and a great, roaring fire. People shouted and yell, a fiddler jigged in the corner, and Carmine found himself staring into the face of an old man with runny yellow eyes, a bulbous red nose, and blotchy sallow skin. The man was grinning, revealing a gap-toothed jack o’lantern mouth of black and rotting teeth. He did not look at Carmine’s face, however, but down at Carmine’s….
Breasts?

Following the man’s gaze, Carmine had looked down to find two large, firm breasts on his chest, the nipples hard and pink, the skin white as milk. He was holding open his vest, showing them to the man, who was clearly enjoying the view.

Daddy! He heard Celia say. Cover your boobs!

Carmine looked around, confused. Where am I? Who am I?

“Them’s some glorious tits, for certain. You are a comely wench if I do say,” the man growled, raising his hands and reaching toward Carmine’s breasts.

At the sight of the creepy guy reaching for his boobs, Carmine shrieked, his breasts bouncing, and pulled his vest closed over them, keeping his arms wrapped over them girlishly.

“Where am I?” He asked, his eyes going wide at the high-pitched, squeaky sound of his voice. Glancing around, he saw thick oaken beams supporting a thatch ceiling, large, wooden tables and benches, and people dressed in old fashioned clothes like at a renaissance fair or something. But he was barely able to process the strangeness of his surroundings as he fixated on the strangeness of his body. He definitely had breasts, and long hair he could feel swishing over his shoulders, and which was also falling into his eyes. He heard his small, pretty voice, and looking down he saw he was wearing a skirt.

“I’m not a girl,” he said out loud, though he was speaking to himself.

“You’re no girl. No. Not with them tits. You’re a woman, sure,” the man said, licking his lips. He reached into a purse tied to his belt and fished out a dull coin, which he flipped onto Carmine’s lap. Then he leaned in and said, “There’s more where that came from if you let me stick my fingers in ya.”

“What the hell?” Carmine said.
