TG Valentine's Day Story Bundle by Courtney Captisa & Claire Bear (crossdressing feminization)

Maybe it is Valentine's Day itself, or maybe it is a matter of absence making the heart grow fonder, but the first short story collection from Courtney Captisa & Claire Bear since September is an absolute delight.

The TG Valentine's Day Story Bundle collects four stories that deal with themes of forced feminization, crossdressing, age regression, and magical transformation. Three of those stories are very much what fans have come to expect from the mistresses of turning men into prom girls, but there is one genuine surprise.

Hand Me a Valentine is the story of a young man forced to wear his sister's hand-me-down clothes because money is tight. As if the humiliation of wearing his younger sister's clothes were not bad enough, photos of his ordeal get shared around school, leading to a misunderstanding with an older boy that has some rather . . . cute consequences. The last two scenes are some of the sweetest the ladies have ever written.

Sissy Secret Admirer is a darkly fascinating story that is full of questions - such as what is happening, why is it happening, and who is behind it? Bruce is a rude, sexist, arrogant manager who is receiving unsuitable gifts he does not deserve from a secret admirer he cannot identify. The magical feminization is well-done, the women surrounding him are witty and delightful, and the suspense is more than validated by the twist ending.

Channeling is that surprise story I mentioned. It starts out as a traditional Courtney/Claire story, with a young woman bribing her older brother into crossdressing for her YouTube videos. There is some embarrassment and humiliation there, especially as they begin taking things public, but it is Elliot's response to the situation that makes this one so memorable.

A Valentine Favor is another magical transformation story, this time with a high school teacher who agrees to chaperone the school’s Valentine's dance, covering for the teacher on who he has a crush. Except, instead of chaperoning as a male teacher, he soon finds himself being pressured into attending it - with a date! - as a female student. Is it real? Is it magic? Is it a dream? Is it all of the above? All I will say is that the ending is a delight.

Courtney and Claire are always good for an entertaining read, but TG Valentine's Day Story Bundle is something just a bit more special.

[In the interest of full disclosure, while I had the great pleasure of providing editorial assistance on the manuscript, the actual writing and story creation is solely the work of the author]

Courtney Captisa has had a strong interest in transformation since childhood. In her early teens, she discovered several webpages such as Fictionmania. She enjoys writing clean stories.
