I was crushed. My entire life was ahead of me. I was the starting quarterback for my high school football team and I had a 4.0 GPA at school. Now, I was alone and pregnant. How stupid I was, I thought, for having unprotected sex with my girlfriend. It was the heat of the moment though, and I just couldn’t wait.
Oh how he hated being pregnant, and everything that came with it. The cramps, the morning sickness, the cravings, the back aches, the mood swings, the weight gain, the swollen ankles, the sleepless nights, not being allowed to drink or smoke, the massive strain it had put on his and Sniper’s relationship, having his manhood being called into question… that especially. Scout would always find new ways to compare him to a woman, especially after Spy started developing breasts (which he was less than impressed about). As for everyone else, they mostly avoided him (except for Pyro, who was quite thrilled at the prospect of a new baby about the base), but were kind enough to donate some of their clothes when his suit no longer fit him.
A month and some change later, Yuuri is standing in at store with his phone out, staring at his grocery list. He accidentally flips to his calendar app, where he’s been keeping careful track of all his various cycles, and realizes something.
His routine was predictable and the people at the gym knew him by his first name. He was enjoying how his life was going, even after the loss of a close friend. He kept that friend’s dog tags around his neck at all times to remember and honor him.
This book was really intense! The plot completely drew me in, and the characters made it even better. I love the way Derrick and Rowan met for the first time. I enjoyed reading this one, especially because of the amount of shifter lore in it.
Tossing in bed, Alex awoke abruptly with the covers almost completely off him with a frightful pain in his abdomen. For the past couple of months he had been gaining weight, and he couldn’t put his thumb on why. Now for the last night or so he had been having these terrible pains in his rounded stomach. “Nnnn,” he moaned sitting up with a hand on his stomach that looked like a basketball beneath his skin. Sweat started to prickle his brow and his back, he pulled off the white t-shirt he wore to bed leaving him in his boxers. He stared at himself through the full-length mirror opposite of his bed. “Aaaahhh,” he bent forward clutching his stomach — it couldn’t have been something he ate even though his appetite practically doubled since whatever this was had been happening.
“Look, look.” Viktor holds it out to him, and points to the spot where there might be a very, very faint pink line. “It’s early yet. It’s faint, but it’s there. They’re all positive. Eight positives. Yuuri. Yuuri.”
“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.
Eli Lapp has fallen deep into an inescapable abyss—his parents are dead, leaving him to care for his two young siblings and ailing grandfather, the Amish settlement where he lives has outcast him for being on the wrong side of a pregnancy scandal and he’s a hair’s breadth away from losing the very roof over his head.
Other widely-disliked themes seem to fit into the fact that readers’ likes tended towards fluffy happiness: major character death isn’t what many people come to fanfic for. (In fact, fix-it fic, where writers explore possibilities like bringing major characters back from the dead, ended up #12 on the Yay list!) But there are some that aren’t as explicable. What’s wrong with self/self—stories in which a character has sex with another consenting version of themselves (from a different timeline, via time travel, the result of a magical duplication, or a science experiment gone wrong)? Is mpreg (male pregnancy, through any means) really worse than slavery? And what’s wrong with centaurification—stories where character gets, well, turned into a centaur? Mysteries.
Mpreg Part2/3Brett woke up and saw her sleeping. He felt better but whenever he moved his belly jolted with pain. He was afraid something bad happened to his baby. He set aside the thought and brought a blanket and draped Vicky. He went into the kitchen and was starting to make dinner when his belly was tight. He rubbed it to ease the pain but it still hurt every now and then. Vicky woke up to smell burning. She quickly got up and looked around through the thin layer of steam. She saw Brett laying on the kitchen floor coughing. She ran over to him and checked if he was okay. She saw the stove burning on fire. She grabbed the fire extinguisher and blew out the stove. After a few minutes the steam was starting to go away. She helped him on the couch and noticed he was in pain coming from his stomach. She massaged his belly and looked up at him. “DONT DO ANY WORK!! From now on I will!! You got me WORRIED!!” Vicky looks away and starts crying. “V-Vicky. I’m sorry. I just wanted to help.” “Well don’t.”
According to Karine Chung, the director of the fertility preservation program at the University of Southern California’s Keck School of Medicine, transplanting a uterus into a human male would not be much different from transplanting one into a female as, “Male and female anatomy is not that different.” The uterus would either have to be donated by a willing donor or be tissue-engineered using the male’s stem cells and then implanted into his pelvic region. Afterward, the standard in vitro fertilisation (IVF) procedure would be followed to insert the fetus into the male’s newly formed womb.
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.”
Trapped but Safe Birth (Mpreg)I was trapped. The two teenagers stood by side me and then made way for the third. They weren’t respectful at all. They all thought I was nothing but trash. Well sometimes I do think that. I got rejected for becoming pregnant with my boyfriend. Even more stupid, I’m a male. I’m a male and I’m pregnant. I dropped out of school for this reason and now I’m trapped. These completely strange teenagers thought it was funny to see a male being pregnant. I’ve seen others but it’s very rare.
The Omegaverse is RIFE with serious issues (dubious consent being perhaps the most obvious and most frequent) but it is also a) interesting from a genderfuck point of view, b) awesome in terms of world-building, one of my favourite things about AUs, and c) really fucking hot.
