Site Update: 21 March 2020

Patreon supporters who pledge at $15 or more can suggest ideas for vignettes—one-scene stories, generally 1,000 to 2,000 words—and that’s what this update is on my end: three shortish, one-scene tales requested by patrons. (I can never write anything that’s actually short, but these come closest.) I had a great time doing them. And to ensure I take care of my patrons on the regular, as well as to give myself a change of pace from my usual longer fare, I’m guaranteeing vignette updates every other month. I want to hear from you for the next one!

I thought I would be kind of shy this week in terms of contributions, but it turns out this is a pretty hefty update, with a wide range of stories from dark to light and across lots of taste spectra. Please upvote and comment on the stories you like—we authors use your feedback to shape what we write next.

The next update will be 4 April. In the meantime stay home, and stay safe. And thanks for visiting the site.

Site Update: 7 March 2020

Up this week is a new chapter for the commissioned story “Finding Owen”, the sequel to “Love/Shift”. Owen’s one of my favorites, just because he’s vibrant and cheeky no matter the circumstances. It makes me want to give him a good story, so I hope he likes where this one is going. If you happen to be interested in commissioning me, you can sign up for one of the commissioning levels at my Patreon, either as a one-time thing or monthly. Next time I’m going to be responding to some recent Patreon suggestions from the other tiers, so if you’re a patron, or become one, make sure to message me on Patreon with what you’d like to see! And once again to all my patrons, I extend my humble and sincere gratitude for helping fuel my drive to create my own special worlds where four-armed men and tree-sized cocks and lascivious werebears and all sorts of unlikely things are as everyday as electric cars and clickbait.

Lots of good stuff this week, so huge thanks to our contributors as well. Remember upvotes and comments on the stories you like are always welcome feedback for the authors. If you feel like you’ve got a story that would work on Metabods, feel free to send it in—if it’s been posted elsewhere, or it’s never been shared before.

The next update is 21 March. In the meantime, thanks for visiting and enjoy the site!

Site Update: 22 February 2020

A lot of contributions this week, so it’s a big update; plus three chapters from me, two in my jinn story “Shadow and Flame” and a more frivolous messing-with-guys-to-make-’em-hotter story as well. Beyond that I am needing to get some post-posting sleep, so all I have left to say is that the next update is 7 March, and to thank my brill, knockout and generally wonderful Patreon supporters and all you folks for visiting (and commenting and upvoting). Enjoy the site.

Site Update: 8 February 2020

As promised, a second update with more new stuff from me. Two weeks of BRK smut in a row. In a way it’s part of a thank you for bearing with me while I got slightly overloaded the last six months or so. I have more stuff planned for the site over the next few months to make it a better place to hang out and enjoy stuff you don’t find elsewhere.

Speaking of which, among this week’s additions is the final chapter of Tereshky’s growth/mutation/horror story “Hollyville”, so if you haven’t been following that one go back and start from the beginning, and then try not to imagine it happening in your street, tonight, the moment you close your eyes for sleep…

Next update is 22 February. In the meantime, thanks for visiting and enjoy the site.

Site Update: 1 February 2020

I’d been meaning to get back to “King Size” for a while now, so when it cropped up randomly in a recent Saturday Flashback I took that as a nudge to continue the story of King Rafe and his peculiar curse. So that’s this week’s new stuff from me: three new parts for “King Size”. Sorry for having to push things back a week last week, but I made my deadline for my IRL project and got to expand one of my favorite stories this week, so I hope you guys aren’t too mad. If it helps, this week there’s also a ton of stuff from contributors both new and veteran. Give them all a look, and make sure to comment and upvote on the stories you like.

Next update: still 8 Feb, so new stuff this week and more new stuff next week. Huge and humble thanks to my Patreon supporters, without whom I wouldn’t be able to do nearly as much writing. And if you’re interested in commissioning, that’s the way to do it—by taking a commissioning level for a month, and then dropping down after or keeping it there of you want to keep the story going.

In the meantime, thanks for visiting, and enjoy the site.

Site Update: 11 January 2020

This week I had a lot of fun writing five new chapters for the commissioned story “One Hot Summer”. That turned out to be rather more than the commission, as you might have guessed, but I had to get to a certain… climactic moment in the story, and I was really enjoying hanging out with these guys. So, yeah, ten thousand words this week about hot guys making pizza, eating special baked goods, and slowly getting bigger. Hope you like. If not, there’s all kinds of stuff in the update below, new and continuing, for you to select from, so have at it.

Speaking of which, Richard Jasper, also known in the community as Arpeejay and one of the “name” authors in strength and muscle erotica, sent me a note about posting his existing stories here, which I’m delighted to do. The first two are shared below, and we should be seeing a steady stream in coming weeks. Incidentally, you don’t have to write something special just for the site to post here, so if you’ve got stories that have been shared elsewhere but you think will fit here, by all means let me know.

Next update is 25 January. Check out the 2019 Year-End Round-Up if you missed it last week, and be sure to tip your servers—I mean, be sure to upvote and comment on stories you like, cuz authors needs to knows what works. And whatever you do, do not downvote just because you don’t like the genre—that’s not what we are here. Read the tags, that’s what they’re there for, and if it’s not up your street go ahead and find something great that is. In the meantime, hope you’re having a good new year so far and that an excellent 2020 lies ahead. Thanks for stopping by and visiting a while. Enjoy the site!

Site Update: 28 December 2019

Here it is, a little late but reasonably epic: the Metabods holiday party. Instead of revisiting the gothic confines of FitzHardinge Manor, this year I followed two shipwrecked space travelers who discover their own form of Yuletide celebrations beyond the pale of the known galaxy. I hope you like it. Also joining the party are a bunch of Christmassy transformations and a whole bunch more from a wide array of authors.

Upvote and comment on the ones you like, and let me know the kinds of things you’d like to see on the site in the new year.

The next update will be 11 January. In the meantime, thanks for visiting, and I hope you have a safe and happy New Year’s holiday, and the best possible 2020 to you all.

Site Update: 7 December 2019

New this week from me: two chapters continuing “Flashmob”. I wanted to write more but ran out of time, so maybe I’ll be returning to it in coming weeks. Plus a wide array of strange tales from contributors veteran and new. I hope you like, and as always don’t forget to comment and upvote on stories that you especially like.

Heartfelt and humble thanks to my Patreon supporters, who really do make a difference. Next update is 21 December. I’d love to have a bunch of holiday-themed stories, whether it be Christmas or solstice or Hanukkah or just that year-end mystique that all humans and animals feel in their bones, so if you write something seasonal like that involving meta guys by all means send it in. In the meantime, thanks for visiting and enjoy the site.

Site Update: 23 November 2019

Two new stories from me this week. I had a surprise inspiration to continue “New Neighbors”, which I’d always meant to come back to, and I like the way it turned out as Jimmy deals with his connection with Connor and Kevin and how it isn’t all about his abilities. Plus there’s a new story, “Against Protocol”, that works nicely as a B-side. Plus there are a number of interesting stories this week, with a lot of variety in plot, character, and type of change or enhancement. I hope you like, and please make sure to comment on and upvote stories you enjoy so the authors how what works.

Speaking of which, I’ve been thinking about the star ratings lately. The original purpose was to help sort stories so that ones that are exceptional get marked that way by reader votes, and that’s pretty much how it works. But what’s giving me pause is the way the star voting allows for stories being dissed, rather than not being recommended, and I’m wondering if that’s the best way to treat stories and their writers while helping bring good stories to the attention of readers who are looking for them. A single one-star vote can undermine several four- and five-star votes.

One alternative is to institute a thumbs-up voting system instead, which is used on a number of sites (Not Always Right is one of the sites that got me thinking of it). If a reader wanted to recommend a story, they’d give it a thumbs up, and stories would be listed with their recommendation count as well as their page views. (If I did this, I’d convert the star ratings to thumbs up on a sliding scale by number of stars.)

I’m still of two minds about this—there are downsides both ways. If the star rating system is used as intended, it can be valuable in tiering the stories; is that what we want to do? What do you think? I’ve set up polls on Twitter and on Patreon for you guys to chime in, and please add a comment too about whether you think the voting system is worth changing and why.

Next update is 7 December. If you’re in the States or affiliated lands, have a great holiday, and in the meantime, thanks for visiting and enjoy the site.

Site Update: 9 November 2019

This week’s story, “Pool Party”, didn’t exactly go where I was originally intending for it to when I first saved a file with that title. (I use Scrivener, and it’s great, but one thing I wish it didn’t do is force you to choose a title when you create the file before you’ve written anything, rather than on first save as with a word processor. Apart from that, though, it’s perfect for how I use it.) Anyway, first I got about 2,000 words into it and realized I needed to completely change the context and setting; then, after I’d started over the characters started asserting their own very firm ideas about what they wanted to have happen, instead of the scenarios I’d been envisioning. I think it turned out pretty hot, though. Let me know what you think.

Lots of other good stuff this week, but special kudos to Mad Dog and Mr. X, who’ve reached a culminating and climactic fiftieth chapter of their long-running story “Spice”. If you haven’t been reading this, you can join in here, but it’s also worth starting at the beginning. Plus there’s some slightly belated Halloween chills, and lots of good old-fashioned size, growth, and sexytimes.

Next update is 23 November—Thanksgiving weekend, here in the States. Maybe there’ll be something relating to turkey, American football, and/or “family get-togethers”; or maybe not. We’ll see how it plays out. In the meantime, thanks for visiting, and enjoy the site.
