Something about it was so electric. So surreal. I kept trying to use enough of my practiced sense of teenage 'cool' to determine whether or not this whole experience was really happening to me...but my mind kept drifting off, mid thought. Carried away by the powerful current of untapped hormones and unexplored feelings within me. Dizzy. Lost. Swept up in the undertow of a moment for which I had no previous precedent.

A different take on the traditional M/M werewolf romance topic: less romantic, less traditional, more disturbing and with more conniving wolves, vampires and humans. -- Book1 of the MetaWolf series. All 8 MetaBooks, MetaViews and MetaPrompts are already online: http://www.gayauthors.org/story/johnar/metaprompts.
Fate is the 8th and final book of the MetaWolf series: a polarising, sexist, homophobic, politically incorrect and twisted story in the M/M wolf shifter genre. While it features the usual Meta ingredients (insecure nerds, bottom wolves, illoyal enforcers, scheming vampires and a disturbingly sadistic Fate), it will twist the concepts of what's true and what's just a wanking fantasy. It requires the knowledge of all previous 7 MetaWolf books and of the MetaPrompts until 90 'Fort.'
Little snippets set in the MetaWolf universe, inspired by prompts, of different length, posted in irregular intervals, mostly dark, sometimes light-hearted or steamy, always adding to the overall story. Most likely not enjoyable without being familiar with the MetaWolf series (Meta, MetaOrigins, MetaShadowLands and MetaBattles so far).
