Hi gals, so it seems today I felt a bit inspired and made a cap :P
Okay I had some spare time till I have my next exam which will be the next week, I felt a bit stressed so It has been a good way to relieve myself.
The thing with this cap is that after reading, I think that it turned out to be really emotional and that in many ways, holds something that I've been thinking for awhile. Seeing that sometimes I find myself at internal battle, holding interests and then finding problems along the way. I just had to take it out of me and say it to the rest. Probably it says something on how I feel when in Alectra mode and how I feel once I turn it off. Probably... When I first started this I had no problems with me or who I was. I learnt along the way, that there are two sides of us. Sometimes in harmony, sometimes clutching, struggling, battling. to rise and take control. That's the fun part of how Alectra turned out to be very much alive. There are two sides of us. Part masculine, part feminine. And that's how I feel. Some of us, see a game, a fantasy in all of this, some others wants to make it a reality. I just don't know if I would take it that far, but at least I would think about taking it to a trusted RP play or even try it in private to make Alectra come out more. Obviously I noticed there is a general improvement in how I feel, how I felt and how I will feel.
I know there are has been rough times for me or my relatives or friends... but in any case one always prevail. Now I know someone will think this is all made up for the sake of keeping the fantasy on. Well no, is not like that. I would never entrust other with false assumptions... I'm just not like that.
I know that I won't be able - not sute in the future - to express myself better, sometimes a mental struggle happens inside of me and drives me to screw everything and write in my own language. But I don't feel content, I just cannot throw away whatever I tried, and that I will keep trying. The point is not to be perfect but to be heard and make others understand how you feel when writing something...
*sigh* This turned out to be a semi depressive statement, but is my truth at the moment.
Thanks for keeping with me so far!
Also this caption is an effort on my part, because I feel that I'm losing my "mojo" and really I don't want to feel that way...
Don't forget that I'm running a contest to find my new Avatar... More details in my previous post.
Howdy gals, I'm deeply sorry that I said I would bring new content. But I'm just way too much depressed and yes you read that well, I'm not in the mood, barely clinging to happiness when my favourite programs are on TV but nothing else. The mood is shared in all of Spain. Surely you have seen - specially those who live in America - NYtimes In Spain: Austerity and Hunger well it's "a bit biased from reality"
We are not yet in that situation, but its not far from happening. When you see that the police is acting against the people like they did the 25S day... Well its depressing. All and all, I have my own sare of problems...
I got two subjects that got down the river, so I have to pay for them, and that jeopardize my staying in University. Because the money needed for that increased with the new cuts in education... My average note is 7,8 which would be a B+ Grade. It's not half bad, but with two down and only the need to get your scholarship of failing one. Gets you in a difficult position. There is time to amend that, but there is not so much time to spend the "fine" for those two subjects...
Everywhere you go today in Spain is the same situation, but what is worse, you can see people calling to old formulas long buried and that's dangerous and frightful. So yes that article is a half way of the truth.
With that said, I'm not really in the mood to strike something in the form of a caption. Maybe that could change in a couple of days or weeks... but not today. And I have been trying, but nothing will come out... I don't want to throw a half assed story, nor I consider anything I have posted - with some first exceptions - bad stories. So I'm not gonna make you go through this "ordeal"
So yeah, that's me today, let's wait a bit more for me to get in the mood. The only thing that gets me desiring for something else is the arrival of the new chapter of Doctor Who. And thats not saying much of my pretty sorry situation...
Then again, fear not my faithful companions, followers, acolytes or friends or whatever. I'm trying to get the mood back, but its not like the situation is helping a lot.

Okay gals, got some new info on the previous related post. First I would like to say this:
If you watched that Debate in the American Television, that's a low jab from a high moron. I know I don't have a say in American politics, but I want to spread my opinion about that matter. Afterall he started saying that... So big moron for you in my opinion... You should never hinder the influence of allies, it could be turned against you.
Now, in other news.
Those two are from Tumblr, but I'm posting it again here...
So yes, my scholarship is not that jeopardized thanks to some good people out there in University...
Another Issue that I wanted to show:
It's in spanish but don't worry I'll guide you... ( Don't mind the socialist image it doesn't have anything to do with communism or anything despite what you are being told by Republicans people. We love to laugh at it, everytime someone says that in America is using a socialist measure. its not even close )
There you can say up how much you had to pay for a credit. Given my career is the last from the list.
Now you can say well its not much... Well it's. My whole career cost 1290 € (In dollars 1.679 dollars) nowadays, but last year before the previous pass of government it costed 850 € (In dollars 1.158 dollars) but thats for the first time you try a subject, and if you fail it gets worse in prize.
Each subject cost 6 credits
Last year a second try was around: 16.97 € nowadays is 37.09 € each credit
So the scholarship don't cover those failed subjects, and thats something the government didn't tell to anyone.
On further tries is an invitation to don't even try. One subject can cost you in a fourth try like it used to cost the whole career. Again many, many people will be taken down because of this. The media is saying that around 80.000 to 150.000 persons will be forced to abandon university because of it. And thats only from the first batch. We still don't know what will happen next year, but it sounds worse...
And last We don't work in a GPA system, but apparently I was searching at this matter and you can actually convert your grades to a GPA one if you want to work/study in the states. So with with my notes I should be around the 3.00 but I'll worry about it once I achieve the last year of university :)
So yeah, I was depressed, but now I'm a bit more cheerful today because of the "good news".
Thanks for the support, I love you all!

Hi gals backs to the spirit of this blog once again, I'm trying to come up with some good ideas to launch more sexy captions to you! The last posts were a bit at how we are doing right now, but I don't pretend to make this into a political/economic flaw/Real life blog if you are concerned about. Just throwing out some tiny bits to make you less worried about me not posting anything Mmkay? :)
Okay now into the topic of today. I know Hipsters are a bit of weird, nerd, fashionable, geek, intelligent and silly people all made up into big monster just waiting to be muzzled to shut the F**k of *giggle* I have some friends like that, I know what I'm talking about, but it's just too mainstream to even really care about their mannerisms hehe. - I'm a bit of a hipster myself the way I dress but... Let's leave it at that lol -
Also I found a really, really good picture to caption later if the mood strikes back - Like the Empire with Di... Okay, okay I'll stop the jokes here *giggle*
Feel free to try your hand at it. It's just too good to leave to one single caption!
Hugs and Kisses Alectra
P.S: I saw this picture, and you probably see it. The lack of no Alectra remembrance is disturbing you lot *giggle*
Howdy gals, today is a winter cold day so I decided hot things up and write a caption.
I hope you enjoy it, just enjoy the silly situation and sit thight for more coming captions this december! And if everything goes according to plan, I'll release the first alpha/beta stat of the game I'm working on!
Before I forget this caption was meant for Andy from: Smooth Slick n Shiny. The kinky dreams of Andy.latex.....
Hope you to enjoy it Andy ;)
P.S: I know the recent comments is broken, but I don't know what to do with it right now or what. I'll look into it later. Sorry for the inconveniences
Howdy gals, today as you may already know, It's my birthday! 24 years old and A whole year with lots of great and bad things, but an interesting year nevertheless. Since it's a happy day for me I'll spare the details and go to the good things that happened.
I made my first year of University. I made more friends both offline and online (I collect them!) Got more admirers, hence the title *giggle*. I got Kyra to help me out with some caps, which I think have helped me out with my english.
And I started to make a game on RAGS, but since I have some work ahead for uni, I got it delayed for much later.
Anyway that was for the interesting part, now the cap. Enjoy
P.S: Forgot to say that I have made a new page where you can see an explanation (and some pics) about the game. Enjoy that too!
Hi gals! Today I got this great Idea and decided to turn into a poem. I think I nailed it, though that's up to you to tell me.
There is one thing I you should have noticed but I'm trying to stop using emoticons. I think it's a bit immature to use in a blog. I rather would try to use it in Facebook or any other place. I want to leave behind that kind of expression. Maybe it's because of my behaviour or because I want to change and make it more clear, I don't know
What do you think? Should I?
Ouh and one more thing I want to make some changes to the blog. Specially the header. I have some images I found that would fit great. Only thing that I dunno if I should use both Alectra/Raffside or just Alectra. Tell me about it if you have an opinion in that.
Next week I have an exam, so I'll have to wait till saturday to post again, sorry about that. Hope you like the cap and don't forget to visit MDQP blog which actually updated to a bug free version of his game The Tales of the Drunken Cowboy My Devious, Questionable Projects

(1) You post below that you wish to be involved in the gift exchange, saying that you want to participate and reciprocate.
(2) I will go to your TG Captions Blog and pick a caption I like, posting a thumbnail copy in the post and a link to that caption below it. Depending on how much time I have and the number of people participating, I might give a sentence or two about why I like the caption or why they should head there to the individual blog.
(3) You do the same thing for me. You'll have a thumbnail and a link to a caption of mine in your post. It might help that if you have a "TG Pregnancy Blog" that you pick one of mine, but it isn't really necessary.
(4) This step isn't required, but I think it'd be great if you could post this on YOUR blog, looking for others to trade with. I think it'd be a nice gift for people who are just READERS of TG Captions to see how many blogs are out there, and give them exposure to some they might have missed.
(5) Make your post on either Christmas Eve or Christmas Day.
(6) I will not link to sites that ONLY snag other people's work. This is for the actual creators only.
Howdy gals, it's Christmas Day and since many people enjoyed the idea of Dee, I'm posting today a galore of blogs. So that way I can properly thank and sponsor for the ones that agreed to this treat. I'll post them in no particular order - but to me, anyway so I can make some sense -
Anyway here it comes a great enticing and gorgeous feast to your eyes.
Deelusions of Grandeur: Dee-lusions of Grandeur
If you really are looking for witty humor, have some sense of taste and intelligent life inside your brain, you'll adore Dementia and her "deemeanor". See every lovely word comes with a D, from Dee... And if you happen to like it ditzy and love your intelligent life be out of the play then you'll love her funny side DeeDee, which doesn't come out much in her blog, or it woud a total disaster. Yes I'm talking BIMBO now!
So why did I choose this caption as a show and tell option?
I choose this caption, because I really enjoy a caption where you can have many readings and people will explore it with their imagination. The clueless type leaves a good portion to that. If you can capture that moment and have a good story, then you'll have a great caption. Usually this will leave to great conversations whenever she has questions or discussions see more "D". Great!
As final words I can say that I learned a good chunk of english - like the word Zinger. which I never ever heard of before - and comprehension as well as Pop Culture, which she also do that to you. Lately she adds great music videos too!
Jennifer: Jennifer's TG caps of Defiance
"It's time for a change, said the people" - actually me, but I have an entire town of people inside my head talking to me and adding suggestions, just like Frank Herbert said once -
So howdy gals, I thought it would be nice to ask my followers if I should be making changes on the actual style of my blogs. My way of making posts, the colour, the prose, the fonts, the interaction between you an me, anything goes...
For now I'll give you a proper change:
Have a wonderful new year 2013 and thanks for this wonderful ride this year for the people I've met and the people I have to meet yet, for the people that has been here and now leaves and for the ones that are landing. Thank you so much for being still here with me.
As I'll be away till the new year, I wanted to say that and more, but have fun anyway!
Hugs and Kisses Alectra
Howdy gals, today I wanted to bring you something new alas, I prefer to talk about what I will do for the future of this blog.
I dunno if this week or the next I'll post the new banner and change the aspect of the blog. Also adding more captions of course. I have been ill for a few days and exams are near, really near so I can't spend time or the time I would want to create something for you :(
I had to deal with American politics and spanish politics and european politics to talk about it for my exams, which swallows a lot of time (I mean it) Thanks the Huff po' which deals with everything! (We have it in Spain now)
Am I quitting? Of course not, I enjoy doing it for you gals and for the time being I plan to do so. Even so A bit of feedback or review or whatever here and there from you would be nice too
I'm sorry for not releasing the game in Christmas as I said, It's not really prepared for a beta test. Other tan the people that helped me out that's it!.
But there are good news, althought I had to appeal my scholarship for the university, my brother did get his one. So I can pay my stay for now. I'm not sure the next year, because you'll have to pass the 100% of credits - which is very difficult - I'm not sure about it yet...
Right now I'm working on an Idea for the new Haven Quaterly Ezine Issue V, at least I want to do that. I'm exploring a way to be less talkative with meaningless sentences in captions and try to create a better story and structure. The structure is really important for me. If not I tend to not make sense!
I've been told that I'm a bit risque with my captions, I'm not sure about that, is that really true? I was actually wondering if I should be a bit more racy or not. I'm not a prude person you know!
And finally I hadn't done series in awhile, trying to deal with single captions which works better. But my style of writing is more fitting for series. Do you want to see series again, more often? Or Should I stick to single captions?
Caitlyn also pointed out that I tend to do everything in the TG Community. I want to do less magic captions, because they are easier for me. And try my hand in the following captions with real situations like trying to adapt, changed by surgery, willing scenarios. Without having to say POOFF! You changed because I said so. Maybe technology (sometimes mixed with magic) tends to play a great part on it.
Anyway have a great year!

P.S: I've been asked to do anthro caps, I dunno if that is going to be well received or not. I know the anatomy in spanish of some animals, but It could become a total disaster in english and I'm not sure if I can lend a good cap of that sort, because they need to be written with lots of details...
Howdy gals, I'm not yet able to make the header, but don't worry. I just had this little time to make a caption, that formed itself from the situation going on in my country.
For you see, corruption is spreading everywhere in my country and the whole country is a turmoil, - I will only say that we would love right now to have the Impeachment figure as we don't have that. So you can start making a guess - as I stated in my tumblr, if you want to look at it, go ahead, you are free to go and watch it. So in order to vent out some stress and impotence I decided to funnel that rage into this. I won't mind if you don't like it or not this time because is coming from a "day of rage" today and I had to do something as I said.
I'll come back in two weeks or so to reorganize the blog and keep and try to do regular updates, will see about that.
Hugs and Kisses Alectra
Howdy gals, I dunno if you seen it this before, if you don't. Well today is your lucky day. A whole year has passed since I made this caption for the Haven Quaterly and since I consider it to be from the new line of work I produce it will be posted here - I had a previous one for the second Issue alas I cannot find it in my hard drive sorry -
The Attack of the Symbiote Queen: Issue #3
The story may seems silly but then again Symbiote appearing in our planet is silly too! Is a lovely excuse to read a great corruption symbiote story though. I have to say this was lovely proofreaded from ShySteffie, so thanks Steffie.
Enjoy. The next year I'll release one of the captions I've made for Issue #4
In other news I have been asked to redone the older captions I've posted here into the new style. I'm not against it, but it seems much work and I have to be sure you will like it. In the end is like making the same caption but with another format - and possibly with better grammar! -
What do you think?
Hugs and Kisses Alectra
P.S: I wanted to do a caption for Issue 5# but I ran out of time, so until the next one, sorry.
Howdy gals, I skipped some study time to come up with this funny idea. This for the captioneers out there who want to join the fun.
So I found that there is a "special day" before Valentine's day, it's called Mistress Day, which is used for those that cheat on their wives... But let's forget about those, let's get more sexy. So I had this idea that we could post something about a Mistress Day all across the captioneer world. What do you think?
Mistress Day, February 13th
Is the February 13th, also in China is on March, but whatever let's get down with this one.
Howdy gals, don't drool much yet. I'm releasing it now in order to have more voices talking and bitching, not really, about the game and whatsnot. I'm thinking about putting it on TFGamesites and Hypnopics Collective Forum, but much later on.
I prefer to be aware that people won't come here bitching much about what I do, hehe, no just kidding. It's probably obvious that there are better games than mine and I have not much experience in RAGS, so I'm probably doing a mistake on releasing it right now, but whatever I think I will learn something of this.
First I would like to give a big thank you to MDQP which is a great game creator which has Blanked, Through hard earned trust - it's actually a name, yeah - and The Tales of the Drunken Cowboy story.
My game has been inspired by his games but also Rough Landing and Bodywerks too. Those are pretty huge names and games, don't expect it mine to be as nearly as perfect as those.
The mansion of Lust
Go to that link, leave a comment if you want and there you'll find the game ready to download.
I'm also reminding you bloggers out there that there are 6 days yet to participate in your blogs on the Valenswine caption day.
Hugs and Kisses Alectra
Howdy gals, and well met new followers or newcomers, acolytes? Maybe? Forgot your place and stranded people... Are you paying attenttion at all? hehe. Nevermind, just kidding a bit. Yes I'm happy today, because I finished my exams, we cannot say with flying colours, because I had two subjects from last year, but anyway the important part is to pass on them. I hope so.
Today I bring you the already promised caption for Valenswine. I won't do a Valentine's because this one is more fun and because you are here, I'm here, and we all are here. Remember? Okay, let's get into the fun part. I thought it would fun to throw into a quickie for this one and let you all readers develop in how the volunteer... victi... errrrr guy fell into this situtation. Enjoy!
If you are counting, we are 10 post ahead to the 200th post. And if you already know what happened at 100th post. Well Let's say this will be much, much, much more bigger. So probably there will a whole month without updates, but it will be worth I assure you!
Also I'll try to change the header - finally - this weekend and some stuff here and there.
Hugs and Kisses Alectra
Howdy gals, sorry for the absence!
Today and tomorrow I'll be updating the overwiew of the blog and some features will dissapear while others will change of place. Background, colours schemes, everything will be changed soon. So don't worry if you happen to see some stuff not supposed to appear in anywhere hehe.
Also yes, later, much later I'll change the banner. So without further ado, I'm going to work on it.
Update: The background it's not supposed to be like that, I'm creating it. So don't panic!
Update 2: Okay, done for now. You tell me what you think. Hard to read? Too busy? Looks great? Not? Whatever comes to mind!
Howdy people, I'm sorry for not being able to stay around here the way I wanted or tried to, but you know how the world is going on, Europe and Spain, my personal situation more or less and so on. It's time for those things that you want to fight it till the end and I was focused on not losing my scholarship, otherwise it could have been bye bye university. Also my father could have died this last month because of problems that happened in hospital and how the whole thing is affecting everything in this country. Please, I'm not making this up, I'm... I feel terrible for not have been able to be there when my father almost died, because of his heart problems and diabetes, and not being able to have his pills for four days - long story - ... *sigh*
Right now I'm about to enter the "final lap" of this year in university, so I won't be able to do proper updates till next month.
Just a sneak peek of what I want to write about, I hope this summarize and interesting story on how it could go, don't know yet!
Howdy people, just keeping you inform that next week possibly I'll start to update the blog again. But mostly to inform you that the universe has a way to keep you entertained, well the last post turned out to be a pain to write while this one will be a sweet one.
First I gained back my scholarship, due to an error on my university and the administration I've demonstrated to them that I was right they were wrong! (Insert FF fanfare song)
Second my father is out of danger and kicking, in a few weeks (or months) he will hospitalized for a surgical intervetion. Nothing too dangerous, just replacing a "spring" in the heart (I don't know the technical name for that sorry!) and checking on it. Just a non invasive intervention really.
Third, while I may - they could have - screwed up my studies and have to do exams in september, I have obtained the opportunity to start doing by then, business practices for a graphic designer work. So yes that's means this summer will be filled starting next week with a training course in Photoshop, In - Design and Illustrator. Let's keep finger crossed.
So thank you for the people that left me messages of good will the last post. It's funny how the last month was a ride to the dark and now I'm starting to see the bright light of day.
Hugs and Kisses Alectra
And to make this post more meaningful (Well its really meaningful already, but you know what I mean)
Here are some short stories, which may or may not become full stories. I'm a bit rusty right now!
(Just to make sure, I'm not a Lannister M'kay, but this song is incredibly beautiful and touching)
And we all know how much we miss our precious and naughty friend Evie, I know I miss her, she was so kind to introduce me to her family. It was an honour to be part of her game!
Hey ho! Guys and gals, and in between *tee hee* this is me Raffside taking over. I've been plotting, adding plans and then plotting a bit more till I got a bit of control over. You see from time to time I may decide - you don't! - as we speak Alectra is getting infuri... errrr infuri.... MAD right, MAD with jealous.. jeaulos... Hmmmm nevermind, getting mad that's right! And I love it *tee hee*
Well, where was I? Ouh yes. I'll be adding some nasty and naughty caps which Alectra don't like at all. Just to make sure we start this nice and clean. Here introducing you to a torment an Alectra for a day *giggle*
I know I had to do it. I mean c'mon she went all bossy getting herself in the logo and taking me out! You didn't see this coming uh? Neither me!
