Saturday Flashback: Ghosts of Halloweens Past

Next week we’ll be celebrating Halloween on the day with a bunch of new stuff, so I thought for this week’s flashback we’d surface some highlights from previous Halloweens. Sexy-spooky, nice.

I’m going live with a new format for the site this week, so if things look messed up try force-refreshing the page to make sure you’ve loaded the new stylesheets. It’s not exactly Museum of Great Design material, I get that. My main goal was to clean out the code, which was starting to slow down load times dramatically, and start fresh with a low-burden site across the board that collected the necessary server and database info in a clean, straightforward, and efficient way and was free of ten-year-old junk code and outmoded elements. I’ll be refining things over the next few weeks, and features you notice as missing may filter back during that time. If you see anything that’s just plumb not working, I’d be grateful for a heads up.

Next update is 31 October. In the meantime, thanks for visiting and enjoy the site.

This week’s flashback:

Saturday Flashback: Supertrawl

This week’s flashback involves guys who end up with powers and abilities far beyond those of mortal men. There’s Marvel, there’s DC, and then there’s these guys. Capes and tights are optional, but sex appeal definitely comes with the job.

Next update is 17 October. In the meantime, thanks for visiting and enjoy the site.

Saturday Flashback: Caribbean Princes

Hi folks! This week’s roundup surfaces a few stories that visit the sunny Caribbean or feature guys that come from there. There are a lot of island escapes in our stories, mostly in warm places like the Caribbean, the south Pacific, Indonesia, and so on, though there are a few tucked away in cooler spots like Puget Sound or the craggy coast of Maine. This time, though, our cruise is headed for azure waters and white beaches. Pack your Bermuda shorts, some sunscreen, and a smile.

The next update is 3 October. In the meantime, thanks for visiting and enjoy the site!

Saturday Flashback: September/October 2010

Hey folks! For this retrogression I decided to go a little further back, to September and October of 2010, a whole decade ago. The site was smaller then, and the contributions fewer, but it was still a long way from its humble origins even further back in time. Here’s what the site looked like ten years back. The next update is 19 September; and in the meantime, thanks for visiting and enjoy the site.

Saturday Flashback: Romanclature

It being August, named for the genuinely august emperor Augustus, I decided to use this flashback to surface a few stories that bring up those toga-wearing noble bastards of the Eternal City. I’m including the ancient Greeks as well, partly because it was the merger of the Greek and Roman ethos that brought forth what later came to be called Western Civilization but mostly owing to the rather tangential connection to Rome that some of these stories have. (In “Second Puberty,” for example, the protagonist’s brother is watching a documentary on the fall of Rome but abandons it to go ogle his brother. “I know how it ends,” he explains.)

It’s still appropriate, expanding the field that way. After all, a radish may know no Greek, but Augustus did.

Next update is 5 September. In the meantime, thanks for visiting and enjoy the site.

Saturday Flashback: August 2016

In this tour of the past we return to August 2016 and find a number of story chapters from authors who were regular contributors at the time and now have seemingly moved on (though they’re welcome to return if they like), while others are from authors who still around and sharing their stuff with us (myself included). It strikes me as interesting that we often write about transformation on this site, and at the same time the site itself is constantly transforming, so that it is never the same site that it was a year before, or two, or four, or ten. Here’s what the Metabods main page looked like roughly four years ago—it’s literally My First Bootstrap.

The next update is 22 August. In the meantime, thanks for visiting and enjoy the site.

Saturday Flashback: Witches and Warlocks

You never know what a witch might be getting up to, especially if he’s horny. Always meddling with something, that lot. In this week’s browse through the archives we’ll explore just what diversions those witches and warlocks have been amusing themselves with, with consequences mostly for unsuspecting intimates and the occasional innocent passerby. All’s fair in spells and sorcery.

The next update is… drumroll please… next week, 8 August. In the meantime, many thanks for visiting, and please enjoy the site.

Saturday Flashback: July 2017

This time, I’m taking the archive trawl back three years, to July 2017. It’s another interesting mix of stories, including installments in some longish stories running at the time. Hope you like. The next new-stories update is still 8 August, and I’ve got a few things planned. In the meantime, thanks for visiting, and enjoy the site.

Saturday Flashback: Beard Love

For this week’s trip through the archives I’ve collected a few stories featuring guys with thick, manly beards. Some have had ‘em all along, while others acquire them quite suddenly. And guys with beards aren’t all bears and lumberjacks, either. Of course, sometimes around here a regular guy or a twink or a twunk gaining a beard might mean they’re turning into a lumberjack or a bear, literally or figuratively. Either way, sometimes you just want that brush of facial hair across your hot, sensitive skin—or to be the one trailing your soft bristles across the object of your desire.

My month off is passing quickly. Next new stories update is still 8 August. In the meantime, thanks for visiting and enjoy the site.

Saturday Flashback: July 2016

This week’s flashback takes us back to July 2016, four long years ago as the time-crow flies and a lot longer by the path we’ve had to take; and an interesting and diverse crop of stories is surfaced thereby. In IRL news I’m making good progress on my smutless July 2020 project, so you’ll definitely have the new stories updates back on 8 August. I am so looking forward to it. In the meantime, thanks for visiting and enjoy the site.
