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!

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.

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!

Site Update: 22 December 2018

Having delivered on both my goals for this week—big new chapters for both “The Christmas Ghost” and “Love/Shift”—I have only to say merry Christmas (as applicable), happy holidays (to all), and a joyous new year (a plea to any deity that’s listening). May 2019 be much, much, much, much better for you and for us all than 2018 has been.

Next update: 5 January. In the meantime, thanks for visiting and enjoy the site!

Site Update: 8 December 2018

Apologies for having had to postpone the site update, but the upside of the week’s delay is that the mess of new stuff I’m posting today is pretty massive, with lots of different kinds of stories from writers both new and familiar. Have fun exploring, and don’t forget to upvote and comment on the stories you like—it’s really beneficial to all of our contributors (myself included), but new writers especially appreciate feedback on the stories they share with us here.

My own contributions this week are both Patreon-driven. “Metatation” is a commission from a patron who wanted to explore how the deep insights derived from meditation, yoga, and some special cannabis might lead to understanding of the malleability of the physical form. I’ve explored some of these themes before, and it was a lot of fun to build those kinds of possibilities around Connor and his new friends. And “Swap Meat” was a vignette request that I built up into a short chapter, involving two lovers whose changes affect each other.

As noted earlier in the week, today will mark my last posts on Tumblr, as I’ll be closing my account for good. It seems Jeff D’Onofrio doesn’t want penises in his world, but white supremacists are a-okay. Well, he knows where he can stick them both.

The next site update will be 22 December… and that means it’s time both for “Love/Shift” (where we should see a major turning point leading to the story climax) and, yes, a visit with “The Christmas Ghost of FitzHardinge Manor” and his friends. I’m also planning a new story just for Patreon subscribers for the end of the month, as a special thank you—more on that to come.

In the meantime, love with your h—dang it, I mean, thanks for visiting, and enjoy the site! (Note to self: make New Year’s resolution to come up with a better sign-off catch-phrase.) Seriously, though, thanks for everything, and have fun.

Site Update: 17 November 2018

Real life is kicking my ass this week, but I was able to carve out time for a story I’ve been itching to get back to, “The Servonyx Exclusion”. There are also some other cool contributions in this update that are worth taking a look at.

Please remember to respond to stories you like with votes and comments—it really means a lot to us authors (and if your author has a Patreon linked under his or her byline, go take a look and see what that’s about). My own humble gratitude goes out to the patrons who are standing behind me, and I’m sending warm thoughts to each and every one of you. Thanks.

The next update is 1 December—the year is very nearly over! I’m still not sure how I feel about that. To my fellow Americans, please enjoy a safe and happy Thanksgiving holiday. In the meantime, enjoy the site, and thanks for visiting.

Site Update: 20 October 2018

This week’s new stuff includes the commissioned piece “Love/Shift” where Max’s developing relationship with Glenn is complicated by an unexpected arrival; and (somewhat to my own surprise) a continuation of “Needham High Mavericks”.

Any Halloween-themed stories will appear with the next update, which will be on 3 November. I’m hoping to write something relevant myself, and I’d like to have a couple or three more; so if you’ve been pondering something involving ghosts, goblins, vampires, or what have you I’d love to see it.

Deep thanks to my Patreon crew, who make regular writing for the site possible for me—which is fantastic, because getting to be BRK for a few days a month is one of the things I’m most grateful for. I’m also grateful for all of you who come to Metabods, some of you finding it recently, others coming back for years. I love being a part of that. Thanks for visiting, everyone, and enjoy the site.

Site Update: 6 October 2018

As I write this I am Sleepy but Happy, so that’s two dwarves taken care of. Is there a dwarf named Loopy? Anyway, I ran out of time to write two stories this week, but I did do everything I wanted and then some with Chapter 2 of “Extremes”, so, contentment, yay. I’ve been wanting to continue it for a while, especially as it has one of my favorite transformation escalations and Chapter 1 only gave the lead-up to what Benny decides to do about it, but it was only this week that possible next stages of the plot occurred to me, and some of it only emerged as I was writing.

Meanwhile there tons of new stories and chapters this week, so it’s a serious, piled high update (very appropriate considering what’s going on with Benny).

I’m so tired though, I don’t even remember how I usually end these posts. Let’s see… uh, love with your heart, use your head for—no, that’s not it. Fleeing the Cylon tyranny, the last battlestar—no, no, no. Oh, wait, I know. If any of those things happen, panel, we’ll ask you about it on—! Geez, what the hell. Uuuuuuuh…. look, these are the stories, the next update is 20 October, have fun, it’s been swell, and, um, y’all come back now, y’hear?

Or, whatever. *BRK freezes with an awkward smile as the closing outro theme plays and the executive producer credits flash on the screen to thunderous canned applause*

Site Update: 22 September 2018

Hey folks! Two new chapters from me this week: first, a continuation of Cadence, in which we find out more about what happened to Lucius when he was cursed by an angry priest 19 centuries ago; and a new story in which a young man (who’s secretly been given spoken-desire-driven transformation serum) is asked what the optimal dick size is. What would you say?

I enjoyed revisiting Cadence a lot—I feel like Lucius has several layers to him I haven’t really begun fully exploring yet. I should mention that since we flash back in this chapter to the events of the curse, which (as has already been noted) resulted in the priest’s murder, we now actually witness that brutal event. Because it’s so important to the story as an ending and a beginning I didn’t shy away from it; but the story now has a “Violence” tag, and that’s why. There are a few other favorite characters from my more “dramatic” stories that I want to return to soon (including the djin who’s currently stuck in 1950s middle America, and my four-armed P.I. needs to get out of that house and start looking for trouble-making witches), but don’t worry, I haven’t forgotten that this site is about the sex! I still write stories for Metabods because I enjoy writing gay transformation erotica, goofy and “serious” alike.

I want to call out a special thanks to the readers who’ve joined up on Patreon. That’s truly what makes possible the time I put into writing and maintaining this site. (If you missed it last week, check out the little boosts I gave to the search page.) I also want to very cordially thank the readers who submit tag suggestions. I fell behind for a bit, but I’m all caught up now, and I really appreciate your taking the time to send these in. Sometimes there are some I don’t quite agree with (I have certain measurements in mind for what constitutes a “hyper cock”, for example; that’s the kind of thing that’s on the tag’s main page), but it’s all really helpful, both for new stories where I missed a good tag and for old stories I might not have looked at in a decade or two.

I have also been trying to add new, useful tags as they come up in the content I’m posting. It occurred to me recently that a lot of stories on the site feature perma-boners, for example, but I didn’t have a tag for it and it’s tough to search for (since there are several different ways to put it). And the Cris Kane story I’m posting this week pretty much demanded an Age Progression tag, which I’ve never actually implemented ’til now despite it being one of the basic tropes of transformation erotica (not that there’s a lot of it in the archives, I think). Other basic tags are needed (science vs. magic, unaware, etc.), and those will happen. So, my point is that the tag complement changes, which means those who look for such things will find that possible tag suggestions arise as new tags are added.

Next update 6 October. Thanks for visiting, and enjoy the site!
