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!

Saturday Flashback: Nice Toes

The archive retrotour this week is for stories that take a minute just to appreciate a guy’s toes. Some of these guys will involve nice feet of the ordinary, five-toed variety, and some will have a few more toes than the usual hottie. None of these stories are about toes; they just have a moment where the toes come into focus for a sec. Sexy toes, either in the usual complement or augmented, are fun of course because you can imagine your crush or a cute celebrity quietly having them, and maybe having the secret unexpectedly discovered (looking at you, Harry Styles).

A note on last week’s update: as previously tweeted, one of the stories posted last week hewed to real and tragic events in a way I did not understand at the time of editing. Now that the issue has been called to my attention I’ve taken the story offline, and I apologize to anyone who was upset or offended.

Next update is 16 February. Thanks for visiting and enjoy the site!

Site Update: 2 February 2019

Every once in a while, some kind of fit comes over me and I have these three-day marathon writing sessions where a complete, almost novella-length smut-story forms in my head and I have to get it all out and into my computer no matter what. The one I remember most vividly was the one from two years ago that resulted in “Secret Santa” (15k words)—an exciting and very enjoyable ordeal. This time the final product turned out to be the “Four Jocks” story you were probably not expecting: “The Four Jocks: Knights of the Round Table.” And yes, they do play the Game, or an early medieval version of it, but there’s a lot more going on as well.

“Knights” ended up being even more massive than “Secret Santa” (5 parts, 18k words), but the nice thing about these bouts of must-get-it-written-itis is that this latest story, like “Santa”, has a beginning, a middle, and (most shockingly when it comes to my writing on this site) a conclusion. That’s one of the reasons I’m posting it all with this update rather than parceling it out: this is not a weekly serial kind of story. And I wanted to prove that I can actually end something I write here. I checked, and this is the second largest chunk of writing I’ve done in one go, after the first six chapters of “Among Us”; and since that one doesn’t, it’s the longest with an ending.

The story involves stock characters from what mytho-lit folks call “The Matter of Britain”, including Arthur, Merlin (who’s pretending to be another knight from the legend for this, named Sir Tor), Lancelot, and Gawain. The original legends and later revisions and reboots are so varied and contradictory that when writing about these fellows you’re almost forced add your own characterization; so I took some key elements associated with the characters and shaped them to work with the story I had in mind. It’s not based specifically on Geoffrey on Monmouth, Malory, T. H. White, or whoever else you might be thinking of; and though obviously having seen movies like Excalibur (highly recommended) and series like the BBC’s Merlin (tepidly recommended) will have conditioned my perception of these characters to a certain extent, for best results you probably should not be imagining Bradley James, Nigel Terry, Jamie Campbell Bower, Charlie Hunnam, Graham Chapman, or anyone else from a big or small screen adaptation as Arthur, and likewise down the character list. Fair warning. I mean, I understand it can be difficult not to think about Bradley James once you start (or Graham Chapman, for that matter, though perhaps for different reasons), but give it a shot.

There are anachronisms aplenty, but that’s part of the fun. Some are baked in and part of the mythos, like high-medieval stone castles and armor in early-medieval, pre-Anglo-Saxon Arthurland. The rest are stuff like modernistic banter and idiom, because, bottom line (and no pun intended there), this is about hunky hunks fancying each other.

This update is huge even without the knights, too. Lots of new stuff, including some unexpected treats. Check out the list of thirty-plus new chapters below and you’ll see what I mean. Don’t forget to comment and upvote the stories you enjoy, so the authors get some much-needed feedback.

Huge and humble thanks to my Patreon supporters. I received an influx of new patrons with the new year, and I’m so pleased to have you with us. Having solid supporters gives me the push not just to write and keep writing but to work on being a better writer than I used to be. The downside to that is some chagrin at my earliest stories, some of which are still on the site, but that’s a downside I can live with.

The next update is 16 February. In the meantime, thanks for visiting… and enjoy the site.

Saturday Flashback: Cousins

There’s stuff about brothers, and even about dads. But what if you want just a smidge of family connection? For this week’s journey through the archive I decided to see which stories involve some cousin-on-cousin lovin’. (Note: some of these do also involve other forms of family interaction, so make sure to check the tags if you only want cousins.)

The update is next week, 2 February. Some good stuff is planned. In the meantime, thanks for visiting and enjoy the site!

Saturday Flashback: He’s Got Legs

I love to admire strong, masculine legs—gym-grown and firm, dusted with a bit of hair, emerging from a pair of loose shorts or hugged by soft, dark jeans. Manly legs are fantastic. But I will admit that when it comes to my stories, while I spend a lot of time appreciating what’s going on between them, legs themselves sometimes get short shrift from me (especially when there’s only two of them). My attention always tends to drift from a guy’s junk, up those long, carved abs to… Ugh! See what I mean?

For this week’s archive trawl I tried to find stories that take at least a moment and, amidst all the other meta goodness, spend a little time appreciating long, beautiful legs, sculpted thighs, diamond calves, and all the rest of the noncrotch below-the-waist hotness a meta guy has to offer.

No update this week, as promised! I feel bad, but the good news is I’m making mad progress on my big non-sexy writing project. The next update will be 2 February. As always, thanks for visiting, and enjoy the site!

Saturday Flashback: January 2014

This week’s flashback takes us back five years, to January 2014. The big news back then was that Also Known As (a.k.a. AKA) gave me the go-ahead to post all the stories of his on Metabods that I hadn’t posted already, including the whole run of the Transform series, sequels, and side stories as well as a whole lot more. I’ve listed a few representative stories below as part of this throwback post, but really you need to check out his author page to appreciate just how prolific he’s been with all the hot, hung, and very randy men he’s produced over the years. Unfortunately, I uploaded all that material in one giant surge back then, and some of those stories got lost in the mix and may need a little more love.

As noted in the previous update I’ll be on sabbatical next week because of a non-smutty writing deadline (though there will be a flashback), so the next update will be 2 February. As always, thanks for visiting, and enjoy the site!

Site Update: 5 January 2019

Happy new year, everyone! I did manage to write two seriously hefty stories this week; but the first of these, “The Misadventures of Joe Hypercock” (parts 1 and 2), was my year-end thank-you to patrons and can be found over on my Patreon page. If you’re a patron, or you’re interested in becoming one and giving my writing a boost, you can check it out at patreon.com/metabods.

The other new material from me this week is parts 6 and 7 of “Flashmob”. I enjoyed diving back into this one and finding some new angles. There’s also some great stuff from our contributors this week—including an unexpected revival.

The next update will be… well, the truth is I’m skipping the 19 January update. I’m actually taking a brief sabbatical this January from both my jobs and Metabods, in order to focus on my fourth persona—who happens to be a nonfiction writer with a big deadline looming very, very soon. So I’m not going to be doing anything but that for a few weeks, but regular updates will resume on 2 February. In the meantime I will post Saturday flashbacks every week as usual, and, just to make it up to everyone, I’ll have a special, extra, unannounced update in addition to my usual ones sometime later this year.

Beyond that, all I have left to say is… enjoy the site, and thanks for visiting!
