Sorry, I’m one of these close-to-end-rush artists (in other words, I start a project and about half way through think “oh fuck it” and it turns out crap at the end… Just like my handwriting through the school year…)
Some quotes have already pointed towards reasons this trope can polarise as powerfully as it does. In this final part I’d like to take a closer look at what my participants cited when asked about what they like and dislike about this trope, which frequently surpasses simple squicks and kinks and touches topics like sexism, homo- and transphobia, to name but a few.
The man had felt another contraction and Joel smiled, enjoying the way the man groaned and pushed with it, arching his back upwards slightly and giving Joel full view of his naked, sweaty, gigantic belly with 40-odd eggs in it.
It all started with a few papers in the wrong hands… Omega rabbit shifter Elliott works as a graphic designer at Reynolds Enterprise. When one of his experimental works ends up in the hands of his boss, who then delivers it to his boss, Elliott soon finds himself behind the door of none other but Mr. Felix Reynolds himself…
And omg thank you all so much for the suggestions! They helped out a lot and I really hope you like the way this chapter turns out. I didn’t use Mary or John because of how often it is used. I hope you don’t mind. It’s been very difficult to write it.
The Medic pulled on his rubber gloves, releasing them with a snap. “I might have somezing”. He then stared to search through what looked like gas canisters that he had tucked away in the far corner. He came back with a twin set that had a dusty tube and mask hanging off them. He hadn’t needed to use it for a while, not since he’d invented the medigun.
On this board, I have decided to address this topic as “Men’s pregnancy” And I’ll be honest: Do not indifferent to this issue, so I worked hard, but found the unusual and cool in my view pictures on this topic. I hope you will support me, and you, too, will draw this theme, as it lured me 😉 P.S. If you are not interested in this topic, then please leave this board and not disturb others
I’ve been in a reading slump for weeks now and i’ve also been MIA in social media and pretty much everything else so I had no idea this book was released. Imagine by surprise when I saw it on amazon…so of course I bought it then berated myself for not paying more attention to my surroundings. ANYWAY…this book brought me out of my reading slump. I love Jax and Karter. In the first books I wasn’t a huge fan of Karter Jenks but in those books there was also some character growth. I wasn’t quite …more
Braun is an unmated Omega in a world of Alphas, Betas and Omegas. Omegas are the lowest of the lowest, and it is totally alright to abuse an omega, since they’re worth nothing in the society A.M. Arthur created.
“Sammy, remember the last time I plowed that little ass of yours. You were moaning like the wanton whore you are. Tell me, how many dicks have you begged for? Probably already lost count, didn’t you slut?” Dean said all of that with a smug smile.
Sam started screaming again with the wave of another contraction hitting him. This one lasted for ten minutes and after it stopped Sam’s head fell on Dean’s shoulder. Sam was sobbing, his face sweaty and red, hair flat, sticking to his forehead and cheeks, from the pain and execration he had just done. Dean took an ice chip out of the bowl Cas had brought earlier and fed it to Sam. He took it gratefully out of Dean’s hands and then Dean gave him another.
Great story of two unlikely people meeting in an elevator, and experiencing the undeniable attraction of the true mate call. Ezra, tiger shifter, a loner and free spirit. Matt, an alpha bear, being forced into an unwanted mating. This is the first book in what looks like it could be an awesome new series. I can’t wait to read more of this unlikely couple in their world of extremely rare interspecies mating. I love it when diversity is explored and there are some very nice surprises for not only the readers but for Matt & Ezra as well. I really like being kept on the edge of my seat waiting to see what happens next. I really enjoyed travelling on the journey with this couple. Overall a very satisfying read.
He dazed off through the window as his history teacher droned on about the political views of Hawaii in the early 1900’s. Jim couldn’t keep focus on such nonsense; he didn’t care what the political views of Hawaii once were. He was only a few weeks delivering a secret he had been hiding so well, his mind could only ever drift off to the thought of what was yet to come. Jim’s daze was broken was he was welcomed back to reality when he felt her shift a bit.
Joel tugged on the egg and it slid out into his hands. He cleaned it and placed it with the rest of the eggs before noticing the man’s sweaty, heavily pregnant belly tightening and the next egg started to crown at his opening.
Pregnancy and childbirth is an experience like no other. In fact it is nothing short of a miracle. Thousands of babies are born every day but every experience is different. It is often portrayed as easy or taken for granted that it will all be plain sailing but as a mother myself I know this is not always the case.
The first published A/B/O book I read was Mating the Omega, which I did not enjoy at all. I thought the sub-genre outside of fan-fiction just wasn’t for me, but since this book seemed to actually have some semblance of a plot and is written by an established romance writer, I decided to request a review copy. I enjoyed it more than I did my first round with the sub-genre, but I think …more
“I dislike the whole concept of [A/B/O]. I mean, sure there are parallels to ways of life in the real world where there are alpha people who kind of have the power over others, but that’s because it’s in different cultures, not on a biological level. And my instinct tells me it’s so basically wrong that people/persons can be reduced to animalistic aspects like it’s drawn out in the omegaverse.” (Laura, female, straight, 18-25, Germany)
Well lucky for you it’s exactly my cup of tea! I went with post-serum Steve, because pre-serum, ball-of-sickness Steve giving birth sounds like asking for trouble and hospital births around the 1930s/40s were an actual mess so…yeah… Hope you enjoy! -Jenna
Then the smell hit him. It smelt like his heat but different, somehow. He shifted experimentally on the sofa, back and forth a little, and he was surprised when a frisson of heat sparked up his spine and pulled a moan from his throat. Oh…
Author’s summary: People leave in Beacon Hills, give up on the town, the people, on life itself. And he and Derek are still here, six years later, still able to drink a beer and share space. It’s kind of remarkable in a really understated way.
