This is a review of the series of books: Saved, Seen, and Heard, which should be read in order to savor this world. In this world being an omega is reminiscent of being a sexual trafficked person in our reality. You cannot help but fall in love with the omegas who are strong survivors and the men who save them. This series is about trying to change the world they live in and loving their omegas. I cried throughout this entire series for the horrific things that happened to the omegas and for the love, respect and joy they found. OUTSTANDING!!
After being exiled for his pack for loving the Packmaster’s son, Alpha wolf shifter Matthias returns only to find his love Bree shunned when his Omega nature is evident. Young, true love is lost but found again in the cold of the winter snow and the overwhelming mating heat. Overall, while the underlying plot was sweet, the writing and the story were not very compelling. Fans of explicit Alpha/Omega wolf shifter attraction, lust and love and their overwhelming drive to connect during the mating heat may find this to be a sizzling albeit short read. While placed in a werewolf setting, the steam includes favorite themes of omegaverse enthusiasts such as male pregnancy (mpreg) and knotting.
By way of the inherent parallels between Alpha/Omega and male/female, male Omegas take on an interesting position in Omegaverse. Their experiences often mirror those of women in certain context in “real life” and reflect gender stereotypes and dynamics back at us. In that, A/B/O holds a mirror up to nature, so to speak, which proves to be a major plus for some of my participants:
The other herd members mistrust Alvarr and his powers over the earth. Even the strong, commanding lead stallion, Laren, keeps his distance. His rejection of the smaller mage hurts, until the Time of Mating brings them together…
“Weird heterosexual sex dynamics are frequently replicated in Omegaverse. Some writers compare in-world prejudices (usually those about omegas) to real-world racism or homophobia, but they do it really carelessly and it ends up being rather racist or homophobic.” (Alice, female, queer/grey-asexual, 18-25, Canada)
↑ The story was a response to Coming Home by Xanthe where these characterizations didn’t impact the social standing of the characters or the kind of jobs they could take; that was criticized as not realistic. (see comments to the original LJ post of Take Clothes Off As Directed)
In a tribe of stallion shifters, Alvarr is smaller and more delicate than the rest of the herd. But he is also a rare stallion mage, a male horse shifter who can perform magic – a talent only found in mare shifters.
I’m a complete newbie to the concept. After a recent post about it, where several people linked off to a Tumblr masterpost detailing a possible biological, sociological, and historical-political framework for it, I’ve been intrigued by the possibilities for the exploration of gender and sociopolitical structures.
“Sam?” Castiel had laid Sam on the floor, he put his trench coat under Sam’s head as a make shift pillow. Then he started ripping Sam’s jeans off, then his boxer; Dean didn’t care about someone else seeing Sam naked, really.
You were always a shy one. Especially when it came to Dean. But Sam had tried to make you talk to him, but you always ended up not saying anything or ending the conversation right away. But that didn’t stop Dean from trying to start a conversation with yo
“I don’t like how Alpha and Omega in are basically a new gender solely made up so there can be gender roles for two people of the same sex, whereas what I like about slash is that this gender difference with its stereotypes is NOT present in the first place; and I don’t like how people are basically reduced to their biology and “can’t help themselves” and Alphas are basically like sexual predators.” (TheSilent, female, 18-25, Germany)

Alois stood up as well walking over to the door he poked his head out looking down both ways. He could see Sebastian coming this way and his bright blue eyes brightened “Hey Sebastian! Can you help us out? Ciel needs to take a shower can you get it started?” Sebastian looked from Alois to Ciel who stood behind him looking a bit scared and much weaker now. He placed his hand over his heart and bowed “I’ll come for you when it’s ready” with that he turned and left going to the bathroom and starting the shower. Alois turned to Ciel he knew this feeling all to well and felt sorry that Ciel had to experience it out of all the people in the world why did Claude chose Ciel?
”Se..Sebastian..there’s pressure down there. A lot of it!” Ciel cries. Sebastian’s eyes go wide and he scoops Ciel up and lays him on the bed before crawling on the bed himself. He spreads Ciel’s legs and sticks a finger inside him,His eyes bug out as his hand hits the top of something hard and slimy,Presumably the babies head. He gasps slightly as he feels his own child pressing against his anus,Wanting to enter the world. He whispers No to himself,and tries his best to prevent himself from giving birth right now. Ciel suddenly cries out,Snapping Sebastian out of it. He composes himself,and tells Ciel what he has felt.
Another twenty minutes of pushing, screaming, and cursing, Harry finally managed to give birth to the baby boy. Severus clamped and cut the umbilical cord, handed the baby to Draco, and urged Harry to push out the placenta.
Summary: Levi moves away from the only town he’s ever known, off to university and away from his two friends, Isabel and Farlan. Having roommates is a new experience, one that he thinks will be totally unpleasant, but when the last person to turn up is a gorgeous male omega, his perspective changes.
Still, lots of readers love the smut. Luna (female, bi, 18-25, Finland) enjoys the wild and animalistic nature of A/B/O, calls it “a total holiday from everyday life” where rules differ. Alex Reid (genderqueer, they/them, greyromantic bisexual, 18-25, Serbia) likes that “everything is wet and messy, lots of come and size kink”. Different rules include some animalistic diction, which can be a squick for some. Similarly, some see Omegaverse as some form of bestiality – and either like or dislike that.
As has become evident, Omegaverse can be both subversive as well as sexist/transphobic/homophobic at the same time. While it is understandable that some declare the genre “abhorrent” as a whole, a more differentiated view on this provides considerably more insight to the underlying discourses that fanfiction brings to the fore. It all hinges on several aspects – the fic in question, the reader’s attitude, etc. – so I urge everyone to consider this issue from multiple perspectives so you can draw a well-informed conclusion for yourself.
Once the romance started I was less bothered by Jason. He fell hard for Mac, which I questioned since they’d only just met, but Mac was cute and “the alpha, Abel, was tolerable. Way to set up a part two btw.
He looked..peaceful and that was some rare sight.His hair was everywhere and you couldn’t help but try to play with it,eliciting slight grunt from the sleeping man,you wondered how did he get such a nice eyelashes which throw shadows on his cheeks and his lips were slightly parted which made the image even better.And it made you remember some things that those lips did the last night.Only the thought sent pleasant shivers down your spine.
Dean pops the first three buttons of his shirt and pulls the knot on his tie loose, leaving it to hang limply around his neck behind his V.P. identification card for Sandover. His arms hang heavily at his sides after he retrieves his discarded briefcase and the grocery bag from the local market.
No one will deny that A/B/O is heavily reliant on porn. Not only that, it’s also based on certain sexual phenomena only found in Omegaverse (okay, and werewolf/creature fics), like heat cycles, knotting, and self-lubricating anuses. Fyi, the latter took me a long time to wrap my head around.
Mpreg Baby on BattlefieldBANG! It was the battlefield. The fight began and was still going for almost 2 hours. Bullets were fling across the grass running through people. One of the guys in the back was pregnant. His name was Evan. He was passed his due date but was forced to serve in the war. His side didn’t have many fighters if he were to be excused. They needed to win this battle. Evan was behind a rock trying to catch his breath. Blood streamed down his face from attacks and bruises took over his body. They were supplied body masks but Evan wasn’t able to wear it since no matter how he tried it didn’t fit. He was worried something might happen to his baby or him during the battle. He panted from running too much since he ran out of energy quickly. His enormous belly made it hard for him to dodge bullets. He was bumped and shoved a couple of times. Evan ran out from behind the rock and held up his gun and shot many bullets towards the enemies. He ran into a tall man and fell to the ground. He held his stom
When Evander arrives, Zade finds himself forgetting all about field biology. He’s more concerned with the alpha shifter’s brilliance and curiosity – not to mention his broad chest and powerful muscles.
Dean accepts and the next thing he knows he’s up against a bathroom stall door being fucked within an inch of his life but its so, so, so good. the best sex he’s ever had and he comes (untouched) so hard that he sees stars
Jack was smart enough to keep his lips zipped on the matter, but he honestly couldn’t get enough of seeing his mate nesting and pregnant like this. It must satisfy him on some screwy alpha level but hey, if it made him feel those warm fuzzies in his loin then he wasn’t gonna rebuke it.
He reached into a small pouch he kept tied to his widened waist where he kept a knife, and cut the cord to his baby and tied it off tightly. His stomach suddenly contracted again and he groaned while he kept his baby in his arms, and started to bear down. The pressure in his anus grew even worse.
“M-preg. Nothing wrong about it but I don’t like how children affect the stories. I like it when the characters remain on the same level no matter if they’re alphas or omegas. Pregnancy almost always means tht one of the character will be seen as weaker or more delicate. It’s something I struggle with in real life, how women are seen as gentle, delicate creatures just because of their natural abilities. So finding the same kind of disparity in a fic is disappointing for me.” (Mélissa, female, pansexual/panromantic, 25-30, France)
