This fic is equal parts terrifying and gorgeous. AmandaDBone imagines what would happen if mysterious dust were to fall from the sky and wreak havoc on human biology. It’s a think-piece disguised as sci-fi disguised as poetry, and I personally feel it is wildly underrated.
“I’m AFAB genderqueer, and I’ve always been incredibly uncomfortable with pregnancy and childbirth, to the point of feeling ill at ease around pregnant women and young babies, because so much of female gender and the idea of womanhood is wrapped up in pregnancy/motherhood, and the reverse as well, a pregnant body at this point in my culture will inevitably signify “female” to outsiders. As I get into the tail end of my potential reproductive years and start to reexamine my childfree-by-choice status, MPREG gives me an alternative POV, where reproduction is divorced from binary sex, some men have babies, some women have babies, some men impregnate, some women impregnate. I’ve seen criticism of MPREG saying “Why not just write trans characters instead” but for me that misses the point, trans people have babies right now, and that’s awesome and makes me super happy, but MPREG is like good sci fi, it’s utopian possibility, sex as irrelevant, gender as expression.” -Jay
I was very disappointed to find that this was in actuality, a short story with 4 other books in the back and 2 free downloads. The story ended at 26%. This was not in the description and i feel that this is both misleading and fraudulent. I have also noticed that all 35 reviews are from Readers who have received an ARC copy. No verified purchases. I dont kno if the book was padded after that or what. This seems like a KU scam.
Grell sits under the dead oak tree,Crying,His long red hair in a tangled mess against his tear soaked cheeks. He plucks petals one by one off a dead flower before his head snaps up in alarm when he hears Ciel screaming for him. Grell runs towards Ciel’s voice and nearly knocks over Ciel as they nearly run smack into each other.
Niso gripped the pregnant male’s shoulders to keep him calm, nodding. “Your water just broke Francis, just breathe and push.” He said soothingly, reaching down to rub at Francis’ stomach. Wordlessly, Niso guided Francis, leaning him as far back as possible before his head was under water to give as much space needed for the baby to pass through. “You have to push on the contractions!” He stressed, looking down at Francis’ swollen stomach and frowning worriedly. Francis whined and gripped Niso’s hand tightly, terrified. He was there for both his labours and he’d seen what birth was like. “Nnnhh…N-No..” He shook his head weakly, “Make it stop!..Hurts!” His anus felt so full, stuffed painfully with pressure he couldn’t release. Sweat poured from his brow. He thrashed in the waters, hands frantically clutching at the rims of the tub for support while he hoisted his torso out of the bath, and strained. “Ahh…ahh…H-help..!” Francis cried out, groaning as the baby’s head engaged his rectum, shredding the muscular tissues.
She watched as Ryan pulled on his discarded underwear and reached for his jeans that had been tossed on the end of the bed. Kiana shivered slightly at the memory of that strong, gorgeous body pressed against hers.
This is lovely. Fake relationship is one of my favorite tropes, and I love kidfic with well written, realistic kids. This is long enough to be satisfying too, with lots of characterisation and context. A good read.
The connection between Rocco and Kade is undeniable, especially once they go on their first date, the location for their date was perfect. Things between them move along fast but not in a bad way, it’s just natural for them to feel so connected to each other. Rocco doesn’t tell Kade about his reasons to find a mate and it comes to bite him during their second date when Skye shows up with the intention to ruin everything between them.
One of the two men was Kakashi, his former sensei and an alpha in his prime, leaning against the wall with his orange book in his hand. Not that he was really reading it, not at all, he was watching the young blonde with the fox mask who was practically drooling over him and the other alpha named Akatora, his long time friend and team mate. Akatora was eating his food, having his tiger mask on the side of his head, but when his eyes meet Kakashi’s, the man knew that the other was as aware of the fox watching them as he was. They were both aware of the smell of omega pheromones in the room, a sweet and thick smell that told them that Naruto had started a heat cycle.
“The fact that fans revert back to heteronormative plot lines despite a queered text only serves to demonstrate how powerful the reining hegemonic norms are and how deeply the male/female binary along with all its historically grown inequalities permeates the attitudes of every single person in societies socialised by Western/American mainstream media.” Taking a genre like Omegaverse that has the potential to subvert, as many fics prove, and re-inscribing it with unequal gender dynamics, etc, is not exclusively ‘bad’. “Instead, such a ‘subversion of the subversion’ exposes the societal mechanism for what they are, and exemplifies just how deep heteronormativity undermines our everyday lives.”
Jared was born into his profession. He’d never met his parents. His father had been katil, killed in action, more legend than man. He used to wonder what his father would’ve been like, whether he knew about Jared. It seemed more people knew about his father than he ever did as a kid and it’s taken Jared an entire life to emerge from the long shadow his father had cast.

First, at birth, the doctors will announce the gender(male or female). In some verses, you can pay to have a test done to determine whether the baby is an Alpha, Beta, or Omega. In others, you just have to wait until they are about 12-24 years old to find this out. So in a way, you have two genders. The male/female gender and the Alpha,Beta,Omega gender.
“My wife’s about to give birth!” he practically screamed at the nurse, causing her to flinch and touch her ears subtly. Lately, loud noises had been incredibly piercing. She felt a flutter in her belly and rubbed the round mass, easing her own unborn child. Clearly the baby didn’t like the noise either.
Adam didn’t know how long he had been trying to birth this egg, but knew it had been over an hour. More fluids were rushing out from around the egg knowing more and more eggs were going pile up making it harder for him to take break before they would come. Trying to pull the egg out wasn’t working as it was too slippery from all the fluids. Panting to try and catch his breathe, Adam knew he had to gather some strength to try and get it out.
Alois finally relaxed once Claude left but even then Claude didn’t get a break because Sebastian was looking ticked off as he went after him. Alois knocked softly on the bathroom door “It’s me, Ciel, I’m coming in alright” he said before he opened the door. He climbed up onto the counter sitting down he looked up at the ceiling as he said “You can to me Ciel…I promise I’ll listen.”
He stopped long enough to catch his breath and bore down again, groaning as his baby slid down and out of him at last until just it’s fin remained inside him. He groaned, reaching between his legs with shaking arms to pick up his new baby to see it. Pulling it up, he seen it was a boy. “H-Hi little man…”
Adam nodded knowing the man was right, having to get them out by pushing hard as he could. The other man keeping his legs apart, Adam held onto the sheets that were beneath him so he have something to grab onto.
