Tied Up/BYOS

I'm going to start my own versions of caps called BYOS (Build Your Own Story) that, while they may seem half-assed, are actually designed to let you build your own story off the cap. For example, this picture here; maybe his girlfriend did it to him? Maybe the Great Shift put him in this situation? Or perhaps his body was stolen by a hooker with a bdsm fetish? It's all up to you, darlings.

  1. This is a great idea, and I fully support letting the audience fill in the detail of the caption. But you have to make sure you're giving them enough to work with. So instead of trying to leave things as open ended as possible, instead focus on descriptions of the situation without giving too much away. For example, you could talk about how the ropes are digging into his skin, the thoughts going through of his head of being tied up and vulnerable, or even just general descriptions of what it feels like to have long hair/tits/a vagina/etc. None of those things actually limit the possibilities of how he got into this situation or what happens next, but there is enough information and imagery that lets the reader put themselves into the scene and want to create the rest of the story themselves.
