Metaffinity [Metamagic]

You are adept at casting metamagic Arcane spells without prior preparation.
Prerequisite: Ability to cast Arcane spells without preparation (like a bard or sorcerer), Any metamagic feat
Benefit: Despite the fact that you do not prepare spells, you are able to cast any spell augmented by any other metamagic feat that you know without increasing the spell’s casting time. Spells cast through the use of this feat use up a spell slot one level higher than the spell’s metamagically enhanced level.
Normal: Sorcerers, bards and other Arcane spellcasters that do not prepare spells normally take more time to cast a metamagic spell than a normal one; if a spell’s normal casting time is 1 standard action, a sorcerer or bard can cast a metamagically-enhanced version of the spell as a full-round action, and spells with longer casting times take an additional full-round action to cast.
Special: This feat can be combined with the Quicken Spell feat, a feat not normally useful to sorcerers and bards.

Aerryk, a 17th level Sorcerer, has the Metaffinity, Quicken Spell and Maximize Spell feats. He can cast a maximized lightning bolt spell as a full-round action by using up a 6th level spell slot or use his Metaffinity feat to cast a maximized lightning bolt in 1 standard action by using up a 7th level spell slot. He could also use his Metaffinity feat to cast a quickened lightning bolt as a free action by using up an 8th level spell slot, but would not be able to maximize the spell.
