Jeannie's Tabula Rasa (For Jeannie)

Another capback that I've owed for awhile!

I really struggled with the layout of this one for awhile. I really wanted to use the three pictures in the cap below, but I couldn't figure out a good way to integrate them all. Separating it into three panels was an option I'd considered, but the way the pics were, it just didn't work out when I tried it. I'm still undecided as to whether or not I like the way this one came out, but I gave it my best go. I hope Jeannie likes it!

Transcript: This was the start of a new beginning. The freshly minted driver’s license in her purse read Jeannie Summers, 5’10”, 120 lbs, brown hair, blue eyes, and a capital “F” for female. The contents of her luggage, did not suggest otherwise, containing elegant dresses, flirty skirts, and sexy lingerie. Just several months earlier however, Jeannie had been John, an individual privy to the shrouded secrets of the New York Families. Needless to say, none of the Families had responded quite kindly to his court room testimonies and had taken it rather personally, compelling him to enter into the most advanced Witness Protection Program the government had to offer.

Every vestige of his former life had been wiped from him completely, including his sex, a choice that had been agonizing for him to make. Several months later, Jeannie was complete. Seeing herself fully naked for the first time, all the doubts and fears she’d had had evaporated instantly. She snapped away eagerly with her camera phone to commemorate the occasion. Her new body was absolutely breathtaking and there was not a clue left that could betray her true nature. The advanced techniques had done a marvelous job at reconstructing her face and figure into an ultra feminine shape and appearance, which had been further aided by the aggressive double doses of female hormones. It was impossible to tell that she hadn’t been born with the ample breasts on her bosom or the sweet slit between her legs, a secret she intended to keep.

She finished her impromptu photo shoot with a befitting pose, facing directly into the camera with an outstretched finger placed delicately over her lips in an expression of silence. This was her tabula rasa and she smiled as she envisioned the life that lay before her. The world of womanhood seemed both daunting and thrilling at the same time, but more thrilling than daunting. She was sure that scintillating and steamy adventures involving crazy girlfriends, wild parties, and charming boys lay in her future. She just couldn’t wait to get started.  


  1. Kendall, I think with those pictures and the story you had for it, that this is a lovely layout! It's easy to read, easy to follow along and not wonder what to read next, and makes sure that the story doesn't overpower the images themselves.

    Great cap!

  2. Thanks Caitlyn! It seems almost strange that the layout and not the story could give me so much trouble, but I'm glad you think it worked out!
