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:
As he was pushing, he felt the afterbirth in his vagina and he bore down long enough for it to come out. He panted, and started to bear down again; he still had an egg to birth. Just as his contraction receded to give him a break, however, his stomach contracted harshly again and he held his belly and groaned.
He waited for the next urge to push and bore down as it happened. “GODD!!” He shouted and grunted feeling thing make way. He breathed heavily and fingers went to explore his ass feeling the large round thing that was now bulging out of him – he felt something that seemed like hair and flesh. He yelped – what was happening to him? – pushing through another contraction the thing slipping faster out of him now that it had crowned. “Aahhh!” He looked down past his stomach to see it hanging out of him.
– The kid, despite being an alpha, loves Artie so much that they will sit with Artie and let him teach them how to do things like knit, or take care of dolls in order to prepare for taking care of a mate
Merbirth Pt 2″It all started two weeks before Pelagius was due to have Jordan,” Tallulah began, settling across from her friend at the kitchen table. “The guys had heard about this great new rock pool system and wanted to check it out. We figured it would be alright if Pelagius went too, considering how overdue Kendra was. As it turns out, it wasn’t the best decision we’ve ever made.” As the merchildren played quietly around them and the mermen continued to holler and hoot from the living cave, Tallulah launched into the story of Jordan’s birth exactly how it had been told to her.
Twas The Night Before ChristmasI sighed as I walked into my house. My 9-month pregnant belly led the way. In my hands are bags of presents that I have to wrap and put under my Christmas tree for family who are coming over in the morning.
Amy found it harder and harder to keep her masculine side intact. Her voice had raised and she was now moaning in pain with every push. She breathed heavily as she continued. She wanted this to end. She was tired of letting Leshia be her midwife and allow her to see everything that was going on down there. She wanted to give birth alone, but Leshia was too worried and wouldn’t allow it.
Omegas have gone missing over the past century, but that will not stop Emperor Drocco from finding his. He enlists the help of renowned historian, Cailyn, a strong-willed Beta female. She is not at all a suitable mate for an Emperor… but the longer he spends in her company, the more she stirs something within him like no other ever has.
Some argue that stories that reproduce inequality in gender dynamics and heteronormativity prove that a trope is not subversive, or rather a step back. For example, Berit Åström analyses mpreg in Supernatural and concludes that mpreg mostly leads to conventional stories in an unconventional universe. She shows that the pregnant male is frequently given ‘female’ traits and the stories usually end in heteronormative, monogamous bliss and a nuclear family (birth parent, second parent, child/children).

Louisa Clark is an ordinary girl living an exceedingly ordinary life – steady boyfriend, close family – who has never been farther afield than her tiny village. She takes a badly needed job working for ex-Master of the Universe Will Traynor, who is wheelchair bound after an accident. Will has always lived a huge life – big deals, extreme sports, worldwide travel – and now he’s pretty sure he cannot live the way he is. Will is acerbic, moody, bossy – but Lou refuses to treat him with kid gloves, and soon his happiness means more to her than she expected.
They took it slow, not wanting to exhaust Sam more. Sam was shuffling around and hunched over while Dean held him around his waist with Cas beside them making sure Sam wouldn’t fall. They walked around for close to half an hour before Sam begged to be put in the tub again. Castiel had gone ahead so he could warm the water again.
*** The tag heat/mating cycles implies a degree of dub-con in of itself, owing to the nature of most heat!fics. If a fic tagged as ‘heat/mating cycles’ also carries the ‘non/dubcon’ tag, then there are more consent issues involved than normal (for instance, a fic wherein a character tampers with another character’s heat suppressants will carry both the ‘heat/mating cycles’ and the ‘non/dubcon’ tag).
“Well….if you can figure out a way to do it without me having to move much, then I’m all yours.” Rhys fidgeted in place, lifting his leg with some difficulty and managing to get his calf hooked over Jack’s hip, encouraging the alpha’s thigh to press teasingly between his legs. A filthy grin quirked at Jack’s lips as he leaned in, pressing a quick kiss to his omega’s cheek.
Colonel Severson was sent to Garnet to fight in a war that wasn’t really theirs. To fight against people they didn’t understand. To put your life on the line, only to find out that maybe the enemy isn’t really your enemy.
A.M. Arthur was born and raised in the same kind of small town that she likes to write about, a stone’s throw from both beach resorts and generational farmland. She’s been creating stories in her head since she was a child and scribbling them down nearly as long, in a losing battle to make the fictional voices stop. She credits an early fascination with male friendships (bromance hadn’t been coined yet back then) and “The Young Riders” with her later discovery of and subsequent love affair with m/m romance stories.
The story begins in 1962. On a rocky patch of the sun-drenched Italian coastline, a young innkeeper, chest-deep in daydreams, looks out over the incandescent waters of the Ligurian Sea and spies an apparition: a tall, thin woman, a vision in white, approaching him on a boat. She is an actress, he soon learns, an American starlet, and she is dying. And the story begins again today, half a world away, when an elderly Italian man shows up on a movie studio’s back lot – searching for the mysterious woman he last saw at his hotel decades earlier.
As you’d expect from something that’s 180k long, this is plotty and deep and takes its time taking you on a journey. It’s quintessentially a fix it fic, fixing all the things the author (any many others) didn’t like about canon at and after season 4 of the show. Which means, spoiler alert, a lot of people who are dead in canon are not dead here. But the way everything is explained and how it all fits together works so well, I didn’t mind in the slightest. It’s a bit like everything you wished canon could be, and that’s certainly not a bad thing. I almost wish I’d waited and read it all in one rather than as a WIP, because as much as I usually don’t mind reading things as WIPs, I feel like this should be read the way a novel is read – all in one. So if you can do it that way, I’d recommend it. If you can’t, read it anyway. It’s the canon we all deserve, and if Jeff won’t give it to us, we’ll damn well make it ourselves.
Sam gasped when Gabriel appeared in the room and grabbed his shoulder before he could even speak. A moment later, they were in Bobby’s study where the elder hunter was talking on the phone with Garth. Bobby’s eyes widened, “Gotta’ go,” he said and hung up the phone before Garth could say another word.
This book makes my heart break – the way omegas are treated in this world is especially brutal, some of the worst I think I have read in ABO romance, honestly. However, the romance between Braun and Tarek is some of the sweetest, sappiest, wonderful-est things I have read, and that did help offset the brutal world that omegas live in.
Another book I needed to finish, and I’m glad I finally did because it, too, was one I needed reminding of – that there are decent people out there working for the collective good of those oppressed, discriminated against and abused…simply because it’s the right thing to do. Even if this is fiction set in an alternate universe/future timeline.
“Now, bend over,” the doctor said, and Charlie complied, leaning on the exam table and pulling down his trousers. “I’m gonna do an internal exam, so you will feel my hand inside you,” she warned, squirting a pile of lube on her hand before inserting it. Charlie gasped as she did so, getting a boner almost instantly. “Hmm..” she pondered.
“Ohhhhhhgh!” he moaned out as he pushed, the baby slowly slipping out from his hole, stopping at the head. Loads of the men orgasmed as they saw him crown, some taking pictures on smartphones of the baby’s head sticking out of his ass. Another groaning, panting push, and the baby slid out into James’ arms.
Several respondents said they love the way A/B/O produces deep emotional connections within a pairing. For all the smut, it is very romantic. “I love the concept of having a mate,” says Ambrosia (female, straight, 25-30, USA). “I enjoy the protective instincts of a loving, mated Alpha.”
Also, what is this about a psychic medium who can help get rid of ghost in your home? What starts out as a trip to write a story ends up being the most important job of his life, in more ways than one. Secrets are out there, things to be discovered, hardships to get past and one Alpha I truly want to be able to smack upside the head with a skillet.
A nest is usually a place where an Omega can be comfortable, whether if he is in heat or just having a bad day. It can be a closet or a couch, a small room or a bed. It will usually be filled with soft things, the most smelling like his/her mate if they have one. It usually makes them feel comfortable in all times, even if they feel they are about to murder someone. With Omegas being the small fragile creatures they are, it can help them rest. As they get closer to their delivery date, they will most likely spend more and more time in their nest with their Alpha.
Dean gasped and ground his teeth so hard he swore they were going to crack apart. The little comfort he had disappeared when Castiel moved his hand. Dean let out a whimper from the loss but another hand suddenly filled the space and he didn’t care whose it was. He grasped the hand as tight as he could, trying to focus on that instead of the searing agony in his gut. He then felt something soft slide between his teeth and he knew it was wings but he didn’t care whose they were. He bit down as hard as he could, letting the grace soothe the pain slightly. He could feel the creature in him becoming distant from his soul, which was now starting to have a cold, empty feel to it.
I can’t say enough good about my reactions to this book. I loved reading how River and Ash grew up to be in love with each other, but life separated them for over 20 years. Despite the separation, the core of who each of them were, remained the same, and they were able to reconnect quickly.
“G-Get it out then!” Francis shouted, writhing in the water. “I don’t care..haa…reach in and pull the fucker out if you have to!” He swore loudly, feeling his opening start to split and bleed as the baby forced itself out.
”Fine,Young Master. It just hurts,Them kicking.” He lies,Smirking slightly to fool Ciel into thinking he’s ok. Ciel buys it,and groans out as he grabs Sebastian’s shoulders and leans halfway into him,Swaying his hips back and forth. Sebastian rides out the contraction with him,Then straightens him up and leads him back around the room,Completely ignoring the growing pressure in his anus. Suddenly,Ciel gasps and grabs Sebastian’s arm,Nearly pulling him over.
In a world where omegas are treated like slaves who are supposed to submit to and serve their partner, Braun Etting is different. After years of abuse at the hands of his father and witnessing the abuse his own brother’s (Kell) alpha inflicts on him, Braun wants something different than the path he is destined to take. Enter Tarek Bloom, an Alpha who is kind, caring and compassionate. He’s nothing like Braun was expecting and they slowly build a relationship together. Not all is perfect, Braun challenges societal norms and that puts not only his life in jeopardy but Tarek’s as well. As Kell’s alpha becomes increasingly abusive towards his husband and Braun, nor Tarek, can do nothing to stop it as alphas hold all the power within society.
Without further ado, then, here are just some of my Omegaverse obsessions aka the roadmap of my descent into insanity. N.B.: My poison of choice in terms of fanfiction tends to be heavily Holmesian, and most of these focus explicitly on Holmes/Watson pairings (Sherlock/John in the BBC!verse).
