K.H.’s reply (female, demisexual, 18-25, USA) summarises the spirit of this aspect concisely: “I hate when a character’s personality is flipped on it’s head to fit the gendered roles of Alpha and Omega.”

These four fics represent but a drop in the barrel of truly awesome Sherlockian omegaverse fiction, mostly because I’m usually so overexcited after I finish a good Omegaverse fic I forget to bookmark it in favour of, er, other activities. There are so many awesome stories that have been told in this ‘verse, and yet I can never get enough. My thirst seems to spring eternal, and I have just about guzzled the well of Sherlockian omegaverse dry, so if you’ve got recs to great omegaverse in other fandoms, be a good citizen and share the wealth?
Omega wolf Jason and his family have been on the run for six years, to keep Jason from being forcefully mated to his pack’s cruel Alpha. When a brutal attack leaves his father desperately injured, Jason comes to the conclusion that it’s time to call it quits. Terrified as he is to deliver himself into an Alpha’s power, he makes a deal to mate with the Alpha of the richest pack in the country, and discovers that he’d rather mate the Alpha’s handsome Head of Security.
Written as a birthday present for my dear friend, kat lair. Sam’s lumbered with something more than just a wound after a run-in with a surprisingly cooperative demon. MPreg. NOTE: keep note of all dates given, to keep track of time and age.
Everyone at the reserve was anxious. The person who was the most anxious however, was the head of the stables, Georgina Whitney. Not only was she in charge of the stables, but she was in charge of a specific stable. The Flok stable.
The trope was a natural extension of SPN’s popular werewolf and knotting kinks. The concept of going into heat may also have been influenced by Dark Angel, where heat was canon and explored in the fic; there was likely overlap in the fandom due to Jensen Ackles being a cast member on both shows. “Anyway, for a while there, these fics were called Knotting AUs, which is how we know that Dark Angel was an influence, because there actually is a Blindfold fill where the author acknowledges that the ‘J2, animal traits, knotting’ fic they’ve written is a Dark Angel fusion.”
Ciel’s contractions are getting faster and faster now,As well as all the more painful. At this rate,It will be at any moment that he will give birth. Sebastian helps Ciel up and leads him around the room. Ciel stops with a contraction,Leaning against a wall and panting heavily before his eyes travel to Sebastian,Who he hears whimper and sees grabbing at his stomach absent mindedly.
He rolled back and forth, from his left side to his back, then his right side, and rolling back onto his back. He curled and arched his body, crying out and screaming as the pain assaulted him still. Nothing he did was easing his pain away, in fact it just got worse with each passing one.
“The possibility that bodies aren’t bound by the conceptions of gender and sexuality that society rigidly thrusts upon us. That somewhere there is an extraterrestrial civilization or another dimension or whatever magical creature that effortlessly destroys the gender binary.” -Lina
I’ve been thinking about an AU where Prince Dean builds a secret cottage deep in the middle of an enchanted forest to hide Castiel and their baby. Castiel is a witch and the King (John) has declared all witches must be put to death. Dean he knows his dad would have no on Castiel or the baby. He’d see them both as abominations, no matter how much Dean loved them, so Dean takes matters into his own hands to protect them.
Sighing, Aldin tossed his jacket on the couch after slamming the door behind himself. He was so tired of having bad dates, and at eight months pregnant with twins his emotions were making things ten times worse. He didn’t want to try with anyone else, not when he loved the very man that had left him alone and pregnant.
Omegaverse is a AU(alternate universe) in which males can get pregnant. It isn’t always the most popular AU, but it is still used by others. In this system, there are three main roles: Alpha, Beta, and Omega.
“Harry, could you loosen your grip just a bit? I can’t feel my fingers,” asked Draco, futilely trying to pry Harry’s fingers away from his arm. He flinched when Harry’s hand gripped just a little harder before he shoved Draco’s arm away from him. The Draco realized exactly what Harry had just said. “You’re in labour? Oh elf, am so sorry.”
Again, despite the title, I enjoyed reading Cory and Carrow’s story. I liked that Cory was so different from Rian. It was a little surprising that the Council didn’t make more of a deal about Cory being pregnant, but it surprised the main characters too, so it will probably be a part of the larger mystery of what the Council is planning.
I felt like if I were to tell him then he really wouldn’t talk to me. He had always wanted a perfect life and having a child so early is not perfect. For him I decided to be quiet but he had already knew what I meant.
“[MPREG] shows the more maternal nurturing side of male characters that often goes understated or ignored due to societal norms. Forces male protagonist to be careful and protective of themselves. Often it can help them bond better with female characters, see things from their perspective.” -Anja
“Oh, oh!” he heard the man scream as another gush of fluids came out of him, signalling that the next egg was right behind this big one. Joel smirked as the man screamed in agony and tried to push the large egg out of his body.
All of them except for Poe Dameron, the best pilot in the Resistance. Kylo Ren, angered that he couldn’t destroy the entirety of the Resistance, took it out on Poe Dameron’s hide and made him a slave. Abused, broken, alone. His wings taken and shredded. After all, there is no use for a blind and deaf pilot, now is there? Poe’s spirit has all but broken and he is clinging to life.
His attention was beginning to make Akatora feel powerful, and the smell of the omega pheromones was beginning to awake his own heat. Finishing up his meal, he turned slightly to his side, so that his eyes meet those of Naruto, and this time the blonde did let a purr escape him, as he leaned his body back on his arms against the table and stretching out, showing of his body for the two men.
