Today it is my pleasure to plug one of my favorite web-comics. Some of you may already be familiar with his work, but to those of you who aren't, he has been making this comic for almost ten years and has just recently revealed that one of his newly introduced characters is transgendered. The comic in question is Questionable Content by Jeph Jacques. So go check it out.
Found this image with the title included. Written in honor of a prick I work with. Let's just say that he's just the kind of person that you might expect to walk into SRU and get turned into a bimbo, so sure that he's smarter than everyone else in the room.
For your reading pleasure, and mine, I am happy to present to you The Berkshire Correspondence by Edith Bellamy. This story is set in the 18th century and is told through a series of letters between an aunt and her downtrodden niece. I admit that I haven't read this story in its entirety, but what I have read I have thoroughly enjoyed. This is a story in two parts and I will publish the second part when appropriate.
So, without further ado, I leave you to your reading.
Sorry for the long absence, insane levels of business combined with a lack of drive to create captions are to blame. That and the fact that I have been working on my real writing a lot of late. Anyway, I am back for this caption at least, I hope you like it.
Edit: I'm not entirely sure why I gave this caption a sub-title. You can think of this as either a first foray into another universe that I'm creating or as a caption with two titles. I will say that it is most likely the former.
This time the next story is one that I really haven't read. When it came time to include it in the poll I took it upon myself to read the work. I only got through the first chapter. This seems like it might be one of her earlier works.
So now, after I have done such an amazing job of building this story up... For your reading pleasure: "The Tiresias Factor"
BTW I would skip the Foreward.
I want to take a moment to talk about something that came up with this blog the other day. My email is there so you can contact me about all sorts of things: collaborative works, caption ideas, or for submitting guest captions. It is not however for soliciting me to engage in cyber-sex. There is a reason that I don't have a formspring widget on my blog. That is why.
I've been going back into some of my older captions and fixing the typos I didn't catch when I first posted them. Take a look, and if you find one that you've saved to a disk, feel free to update your copy with a new and improved version.
For your reading pleasure, I am pleased to present: "The Graduate Education of Malcolm Covington." I have been looking forward to posting this story since I started posting these stories. It is the tale of a college professor who enjoys offering... "extra-credit" to his female students.
The people have spoken, and the next Edith Bellamy story is none other than "The Avon Lady." I could go into my own synopsis of the story but Edith was kind enough to include one in the original posting of the story so here it is:
A well-to-do suburbanite errs in spurning his wife's Avon Lady; as a result, he becomes an avid consumer of her wares.
