Saturday Flashback: April 2017

I was looking through the archives at various Aprils past and noticed that April 2017, though it’s only two years ago, has a lot of material that hasn’t surfaced recently. Out of my own stuff I’ve continued “Cadence” recently, but the others need some joy from me too. I’ve definitely left the guys in “Incremental Curse” hanging! Though they’ve probably been keeping themselves occupied in the interim…

Next update is 27 April. In the meantime, thanks for visiting and enjoy the site!

Site Update: 13 April 2019

As it turns out, both my story contributions this week are Patreon related (but open to everyone). First, there’s a new chapter of the Patreon-commissioned story “Metatation”, which was a lot of fun to explore. And, seeing as it’s been three months, I’m publishing the Patreon supporters year-end thank you story, “The Misadventures of Joe Hypercock”.

Lots of different kinds of tales as well this week, so I hope you all find stuff you like.

Next update is 27 April. In the meantime, thanks for visiting and enjoy the site!

Saturday Flashback: Serum and Sinew

This week’s trip to the past is a roundup of stories involving growth serums of various kinds. It’s a popular mechanism, of course, so this isn’t an exhaustive list, but I tried to find a variety of mix at least partly about the serum itself as well as the effects, rather than tales where a serum figures but insignificantly.

The next phase of tag upgrades will include mechanism tags (serums, powders, magic, etc.), but for now the search engine is there and lets you combine tags like “muscle growth” with keywords like “warlock” or “laboratory”.

Speaking of which, last week I caught up on the tag suggestions and the description suggestions. I very much welcome any thoughts you guys have on tags that might need to be applied, so keep using the tag suggestion form. I do them manually and decide if I agree on each one, so if something’s borderline maybe go ahead and add a comment explaining your reasoning. That helps when I’m reviewing the suggestions and I get to one I’m confused by.

A reminder: it’s very much appreciated when you upvote and comment on stories you like. But on this site it’s bad form to downvote because you don’t like the kind of story. That’s one of the reasons the tags are there. If you read a story tagged “big noses”, and then you give it one star because you’re not into big noses, I gotta say you’re being kind of a dick in that moment. Fortunately that sort of abuse is very rare, and I want to give a big thank you on behalf of the contributing authors to everyone who’s been taking the time to leave helpful and constructive comments lately. Keep it up!

The next update is 13 April. In the meantime, thanks for visiting and enjoy the site!

Site Update: 30 March 2019

It was a pretty tight week, but I did bring my thoughts around to “Changing Nick”, planning out where it’s headed next and writing a chapter accordingly. My plan is to write more in April, but in the meantime I hope you enjoy the further adventures of Nick and company.

Last week I did manage to clear my backlog of reader-submitted tag suggestions. I humbly apologize to all those who submitted for leaving it so long. The truth is that a huge pile accumulated really fast a ways back, so that starting in on working through them—I do it manually, so I can make sure I agree with the changes—was kind of intimidating. And of course when you do that the pile doesn’t get smaller. Finally the count of pending suggestions got to three digits and I was like, dude, you have to kill that pile or kill the idea of tag suggestions. So I killed the pile. I’m making a good-faith vow to myself to handle them as they come in going forward. I think I can be trusted, but you never know.

Heartfelt thanks to my Patreon supporters. Remember, you can commission that way, either with an upped pledge for a month or an ongoing one at the commission level. Don’t forget to upvote and comment on the stories you like, it really is helpful for the authors in bringing you what you want to see.

Next update is 13 April. Until then, thanks for visiting and enjoy the site.

Saturday Flashback: March 2015

This week, we’re going back to March 2015. It’s just four years ago, but so much has changed. But enough about my super-secret genital growth serum experiment (eighteen months and over 12,000 inches in the New York metro area alone!). I can’t tell you any more, but I will say that when you’re in the store buying buying beer, maybe go for one of the local brews next time. Red can, starts with R. But I can’t say any more.

Next update: 30 March. In the meantime, thanks for visiting and enjoy the site.

Site Update: 16 March 2019

Happy St. Patrick’s Day! I realized too late that I maybe should have held my recent update of “Twinning: The College Years” for today, since that started as a St. Patrick’s Day story…though come to think of it my actual Irish character didn’t appear in those latest chapters, so maybe it’s just as well.

Instead I have two new chapters of “Cadence”, advancing the bond between my ancient Roman and his sexy state trooper while laying in some strands that will allow for more revelations about what’s rocking Luke’s centuries-long rhythm in coming chapters. Plus a new story, “Touch”, which could end up developing in a couple of different ways as Kevin and Kellen’s mutual enjoyment deepens.

Also in this week’s update are some great new stories and several old favorites, so please, dive in and make sure to comment on and upvote the stories you like.

My love and humble thanks to my Patreon supporters, without whom I wouldn’t be writing nearly as much or with as much motivation as I am.

Next update is 30 March, and I’ve already got some interesting plans. In the meantime, thanks for visiting and enjoy the site!

Saturday Flashback: Get Your Dance On

Sometimes meta guys turn up in quiet, private places—and sometimes they happen right there on the dance floor surrounded by boisterous crowds of hot, appreciative guys. For this week’s flashback we’re going club-hopping, looking for transformed men in discos, gay clubs, and rockin’ shindigs, all getting their groove on and finding an eager partner or ten.

Next update is 16 March. In the meantime, thanks for visiting and enjoy the site.

Site Update: 2 March 2019

After a long build-up, the Patreon werebear commission story finally reaches a moment of truth: the rising of the full moon. In commemoration of this, there’s two chapters of “Love/Shift” instead of one, and there’s still a bit more story to tell.

You, too, can commission a story if you subscribe on Patreon at one of the higher levels, and we find a story idea we’ll enjoy exploring together. (If you visit this site, you probably already have a sense of the various kinds of metaguys I like writing about. And no, they don’t all have four arms—just look at my werebear buddies, Max and Glenn, and their hot jock boytoy Owen.) You can do one month at that level for a one off (as happened with the cannabis/yoga/multi story “Metatation”), or keep it going chapter by chapter (as with “Love/Shift”).

After the unexpected continuation of “Centurion of light” a couple weeks back, this week’s update contains yet another unexpected return—this time, it’s the sprawling magic/growth story “Public relations.” Plus lots of other stuff for lots of different tastes and curiosities.

Keep going with the comments and star ratings on the stories you like—the authors really appreciate it. Next update is 16 March. In the meantime, thanks for visiting, and enjoy the site.

Saturday Flashback: February 2009

That’s right, this week’s archive binge takes us back to the chapters that debuted on the site ten years ago this month. Surely the internet didn’t exist back then! Had anyone even invented the boytaur yet? (Answer: yes.)

Next update: 2 March. In the meantime, thanks for visiting and enjoy the site!

Site Update: 16 February 2019

For this week’s installment of “Twinning” I fully intended to get the guys out of the house and roaming that day festival the next town over, but the story totally side-tracked me with a completely different subplot. Writers may have things in mind for what they want to do, but sometimes the characters assert themselves and take over the narrative. (Hmm, now that’s an interesting idea for a story. A little like “Duck Amuck”, but with smutty metaboys and wry creator-characters shenanigans. There are some stories on the site that tend in that direction; “Jake: The Hand-Drawn Giant” comes to mind. But a site called Metabods really ought to have a fun, “meta” story where the characters put one over on the author and vice versa, right?)

Meanwhile, “You and I”, as you can probably tell, is a story sketch based on the same long-ago series of chats as the previous chapters. I found it and fleshed it out (so to speak) when I realized I wouldn’t have time to properly finish the latest chapter of the werebear story, “Love/Shift”, planned for today. That will be in the next update instead.

Heartfelt thanks to those of you who’ve joined up over on Patreon. It really makes a big difference in my ability and drive to turn my dreams and imaginings into pixels and electrons flowing between me and you. I’m making a point of posting for patrons over there about what’s coming up, and I really love to get feedback on what you want to see via messages and replies.

It’s a short month, so the next update in 2 March. This year is going by quickly, at least for me. In the meantime, thanks for visiting and enjoy the site!
