Hey everyone,

It's that time of the month where I put up the latest back stories into my gumroad store.  I know a lot of you aren't interested in this stuff, but I have a bunch to release, so I'm going to get it out of the way!

First off, the most exciting thing:

MagnusMagneto Patreon Year 1 MegaBundle

This is a collection of ALL 2014 Patreon stories.  It contains 10 stories, each of which have well over 10,000 words of content.  Combined, they breach the 120k word mark easily.  Since these stories are so old, and bundled together, I'm offering a hefty 33% discount off of buying them individually in the gumroad/smashwords store.  

Stories included:  Brian and Kelly Remastered 1 + 2; Legend of the Desert; The Transmogrifier; The Transmogrifier Continued; Betty and Beverly; The Trouble With Magic Chapter 1; Project ADAM Chapter 1; Mother Knows Best Rebirth Chapter 1; and Tales From a Brawnafied World Volume 1

Please note, I have no idea if I'll do another bundle like this for 2015.  IF I do, it won't be coming until 2017 at the earliest.  That is to say, these bundles will come with at least a 2 year delay.  There's also a good chance that the bundle won't sell at all, and I won't bother attempting another like it.

I put this together because I receive a few messages from people who talk about how there's simply too many options to choose from the back catalog, that even with the previews, they feel somewhat overwhelmed.  This is a way to simply get all of the first-year stuff in one collection, while saving some money in the process.

You can pick up the megabundle here: gum.co/QGJry


Mother Knows Best Rebirth Catch Up Bundle

MKBR is becoming somewhat monolithic in size.  With chapter 6 approaching as one of this month's Patreon stories, I wanted to make it easy for another to just purchase a single thing and jump right.  So, I've combined the first five chapters together and put them in a single bundle.  Buying this saves you 16% compared to individual purchases in gumroad/smashwords  

You can pick up the catch-up bundle here: gum.co/PfrBb


New Back Stories

Alright, here's where things get... messy.

So, the stories that are up for rerelease are Proteus Effect 2 and MKBR5.  As you may know, those came out during the 2 month stint where I tried to incorporate art and voice acting into the stories.  As a result, I'm going to offer 4 separate versions of each release -_-;;   (One for just writing, one for just art, one for just VA, and a last one for all bundled).  I'm going to try to generate coupons for each of these as well, that's to say, if you have the Written version, you can get a coupon that makes the art/voiced versions only cost $2 each, or the multi-media cost $4.  Check your inboxes/email later this afternoon for the appropriate coupon links if you're interested!

So, getting right into it:

Proteus Effect 2 Text Edition:  gum.co/kBRX
Proteus Effect 2 Voiced Edition: gum.co/kTUcs
Proteus Effect 2 Art Edition: gum.co/VeUH
Proteus Effect 2 MultiMedia Edition: gum.co/fTBR

MKBR5 Text Edition: gum.co/ndcpm
MKBR5 Art Edition: gum.co/tZjhL
MKBR5 Voiced Edition: gum.co/Wtcr
MKBR5 Multi Media Edition: gum.co/ZxRl

Whew.


Okay, I think that about covers it for now!

--

For those of you still reading, I'm currently looking for MORE FMG stories to read.  As part of the upcoming/ongoing 'theory of FMG' series, I want to make sure I get as wide a variety of FMG stories read as possible.  If you have any personal favorites that you think I'd enjoy, feel free to let me know!  I've read a ton of stories (like... hundreds maybe), but I'm sure there's a lot I've missed!

As always, thanks for all of your support, and more updates coming soon!

[This is something that I announced in a journal three weeks ago, and has been kind of lost in the journal void.  I'm just turning it into a deviation so anyone interested in this sort of thing will know it exists.]

So, as you may know, PowerCore Chapter 2 had voice acting with it. The VA for Kristi, the very talented Karilynne, performed a ton of takes for her role - most of the lines have 4 takes, sometimes even more. Of course, I only used 1 of each line for the final version of the story. Her rates were also very reasonable, and I couldn't help but shake the feeling that she deserved a bit more for her performance. As a result, with her permission, I'm going to be posting up ALL of her uncompiled recorded audio onto gumroad. This is pack of 25 MP3s, each of which is a separate line or noise that has been recorded 3-4+ times! (I believe that 2 or 3 of these files are grunts/yelling for powering up, a couple are her recording a single word, and the rest are all full lines) This is technically 7 and a half minutes of pure audio!

This is solely for the hardcore fans who want to hear all of the possibilities, or just people who really love audio. Technically, 75% of this is unused audio that won't be heard elsewhere! (Unless a grunt/groan is reused in a future story voiced by her)

It's at the very affordable low price of $1.99, and I will be giving half of all profits from it directly to Karilynne. In a sense, buying it is a way to tip her and support the magnusmagneto voice acting efforts in general.

Please note that none of this is compiled, and none of it has the sound effects present in the final story.

I'm also going to be giving this to free for all of the $10+ pledgers for PowerCore Chapter 2.

This is, also, technically a way for anyone who didn't pledge to get a hold of Kristi's VA. That's totally fine, and I hope you enjoy it =) Granted, it may be difficult to understand the context without the story!

What IS FMG?
Part 1 of FMG Theory by MagnusMagneto
By MagnusMagneto ( www.magnusmagneto.com )

[Hey everyone, this is the first installment of the editorial series that has been teased in many polls.  Despite other categories doing much better in the polling for the first entry, I realize that this really is the best jumping in point.

It’s going to be a short piece, and will say some things that most of you will say “well, duh!” but I think it stands to be reiterated, and could potentially open up some avenues for discussion.]


In simplest terms, FMG is an acronym for Female Muscle Growth.  It typically pertains to stories, art, and occasionally other media in which a female grows muscles.  FMG, for many, is a fetish; that is to say, the common reader thoroughly and deeply enjoys the concept of a woman becoming more powerful.  For others, it may be a novelty, something interesting/funny to read, or a personal power fantasy (a woman may imagine herself AS the growing girl – similar to a male power fantasy).

That’s the easy part of this write-up.  

The thing is, there are many stories that fall into the FMG reader’s circle of interest in which a woman doesn’t grow muscle at all.  For instance, a story in where a woman obtains superpowers while maintaining the same or similar body type, could be very well-liked by FMG fans.  Many FMG fans are also fans of Giantess or Breast Expansion stories.  Another example: some FMG readers may devour a tale in which a woman simply becomes a super genius, or gains extraordinary wealth and abstract power.  On the contrary, some readers ONLY want to consume media with explicit muscle growth.  Muddling things even further, many websites that host FMG stories are chock full of stories with no growth at all!  They’re simply tales showcasing a woman using her strength in various ways.

So what is the cause of this disconnect?  What IS FMG really?

A few years ago, if you asked me that question, I would explain that those with the FMG fetish simply want to imagine women becoming greater than they are.  That they are intrigued by any form of feminine improvement, and muscles are simply a primal visual indicator of physical prowess.

Today however, I have a very different answer:  FMG is many different things to many different people.  For me, personally, it is what I would have stated a few years ago.  I think that for many of my readers, due to the nature of my stories, this holds true.  Within this circle, I am somewhat (in)famous for granting height, intelligence, beauty, and sometimes even supernatural abilities to many of my female characters in addition to copious amounts of muscle.  

Another writer however, may opt to keep their story extremely realistic – their female character will grow at a rate that’s actually possible in real life, plateauing at the same time that an actual woman would.  Another may simply have their main character chug a potion that turns them into a 10 foot tall behemoth with 50 inch biceps.  GBM/Up2NoGd1 for example takes this to levels that are dimensionally impossible; some of his girls flexing up arms that literally contain miles of muscle.  Another writer, such as MarkNew, may write a novel-length story where the growth scenes are few and far between, and the real meat is the exploration of morality and different social structures.  Yet another writer, such as MrGreyMan may pen a tale in which a character becomes a goddess that can devour galaxies of souls to fuel her ascension.

Some writers create saintly women who end up bettering the lives of everyone around them.  Others write wicked and cruel women who literally kill innocents to display their strength.    Most will fall somewhere in the middle of this spectrum.

I suppose that the real point is, as I said before:  FMG is many different things to many different people.  There is no right or wrong way to write one of these stories.  Some will complain that there is a lack of creativity, that the entire genre is too formulaic and tired.  I strongly disagree.  I think that there is a nearly limitless number of situations, permutations, and possibilities.  Even when you write the same storyline twice you can have drastically different results.  I would know, as my Mother Knows Best and Mother Knows Best Rebirth (a remake) series have mostly the same characters, same setting, same scenarios; yet, in my opinion, they play out and read very differently.

Perhaps the greatest strength to this genre and fetish is its sheer potential for diversity.  Yes, in order to be a truly literal FMG story, a woman must grow at least some muscles.  In order to appeal to most FMG fans, she has to be improved in some manner… yet there are so many different ways a story can be approached like this.

You can take almost any story, then alter the growing woman(women)’s morality, and rewrite it into a completely different tale.  Take one of my most popular series: Big Things Come in Small Packages – if the main character, Jennifer, was a cruel, wicked girl, that story would have been extraordinarily different.  If she were more selfish, and had no intentions of trying to better the world, once again it’d be quite different.  

You can alter aspects other than just morality too.  With the aforementioned BTCISP, if, for instance, Jennifer grew significantly taller while she was young, reaching 6+ feet of height, the entire dynamic of that story would change.

Better yet, the fanbase for that story would shift dramatically too.  Different people would come to like the series, and some current fans would hate it if these different variables were altered.

SO, at risk of running too far off tangent, I’ll try to summarize my main points and include a few others:


- To be a literal FMG story, a girl must grow muscles.  The genre is called “female muscle growth”.
- There is no hard definition of how much a girl must grow.  She could simply hit the gym for six months and get realistic results, or she could become bigger than the planet, or anything in between (or even above/below these extremes)
- Height growth, intelligence gain, beautification, super powers, etcetera; these things are not required to be in a story, but are often included to varying degrees.
- There can be any number of growing or even shrinking persons, regardless of gender.  All there technically needs to be is at least one girl who grows muscle.
- A great deal of FMG fans however will still enjoy a story in which a girl improves in other ways.  For instance, a story in which a girl gains superman’s powers will still be enjoyable for many FMG readers.  These stories technically aren’t FMG (unless she gains muscles in the process).
- Other fans however, will be completely content with a story in which a girl doesn’t improve whatsoever, and simply shows off her tremendous capabilities.  These stories, while they are accepted on most site with female-muscle oriented stories, are not technically FMG.



Okay, that’s it for now.  I may later discuss some subgenres of FMG like transfer and whatnot, though I think my next installment of this series will be something a little more meaty and interesting.

Let me know what you think about the format, keeping in mind that the next topic will be more discussion-worthy.

Feel free to tell me your thoughts on what I’ve written here.  Do you agree?  Disagree?  Am I flat out wrong?  If so, why?

Until next time,

Are you going to make growth drive chapter 4 (?) bios?

I suppose I should.  I've mostly just put it off because honestly people don't seem to really care about them, and I don't really blame them (it's just a generic "here's where this girl is!")

Thanks very much for telling me that!  LotC:1 honestly took a lot more out of me than I thought it would because I got kind of caught up in developing the world for it (even if it's a generic/satiric one).  Of all the series I have going on right now, that's the world I'm most eager to return to and explore further ASAP  =)

One thing I was thinking about is since she gets stat increases from exercise, wouldn't swinging around heavier weapons increase her size and strength? Which would lead to her being able to lift heavier weapons, and then... :)

MagnusMagneto Featured By Owner Jan 27, 2016
That is a good point, and something I'll consider.  Her training in the next section will cover that a bit - as fun as simply amping up her strength from lifting heavier and heavier weapons, I think that should be a small side thing, so she can focus on getting power ups from stuff that's more unique to the story =)
