His stomach had deflated considerably, and as he rubbed it and pressed in on it, the afterbirth from both the egg and the baby was passed as he pushed it out slowly. He looked up, forcing himself to sit up and lean against a rock as his mate handed him their two new babies, a twin boy and girl, while she cradled the egg to her chest.
Karma has it in for Moswen. Trouble follows him around like a demented, faithful dog. Moswen never means for things to happen the way they do. It just does. And while things may seem bad at first, everything eventually works out for the best even if the road to getting there is a less than a smooth ride.
Next up I have a re-release of Guarding My Heart. It’s about a rich kid who has had his heart broken and the bodyguard who comes to watch over him when there are some threats against him. It’s fascinating to me how differently I write now. I’ve added a ton of new words and completely changed the ending of the book to give the readers MORE!!! That was one criticism of the book originally, that it ended too abruptly. I did that a lot more when I was a new author.
My initial reaction to “Omegaverse is inherently transphobic” was one of confusion and denial. Then again, I’m cis female. Unfortunately, the one trans male participant of my survey doesn’t read Omegaverse (he does cite genderbending as a squick, though), so I cannot quote his opinion on the matter.
I’m confused. Other werewolf books by this writer, I’m almost certain, held to another were alpha/omega dynamic and physiology. How can Dallas, of part Taiwanese descent, insofar as we know and his history dictates, a hundred percent human, turn into an omega the same time he transitions into werewolf? Apologies, but while I normally enjoy Walker’s books, this one had me backtracking, rereading, then giving up altogether since the plot didn’t hold my interest, and the details and new developments getting thrown in too bizarre to be credible. I’m very glad I didn’t buy this one – it’s as though the plot well ran dry and this is an experiment or a trial to test ideas that may or may not work. Sadly, this one fell way short of Preston Walker’s usual mark and style. Also, unless the characters are used to incorporate made up words or use peculiarities with language, I cringe and am “most uncomfortable” to see misused superlatives like “uncomfortableness.”. Just – you know?
He swore he could hear Eren mentally cursing him, and wiped his tears away with his free arm. This totally wasn’t how it was supposed to happen. Watching their second pup slide free, his hair, ears and tail were brown like Eli’s. Two boys, God. How lucky could he be? Tearing off another strip of fabric, he tied the cord like he’d done the first time and Eren slumped sideways, while the afterbirth was expelled from his body. Much like his brother, the pup in his hold let out a small cry
“You know what? You are right!” Dean turned away and made way to his room. “Do whatever the fuck you want. See if I care!” A little later a door slammed and Sam turned to Castiel. The angel’s eyes seemed watery but his lips were thinned in anger.
“The omegaverse seems like the ultimate in misogyny and homophobia, all rolled into one. It effectively erases female characters and forces strict and horrific gender rolls into this fictional universe.” (KnightFrog1248, female, asexual/lesbian, 18-25, New Zealand)
A shoulder squeezed out of him slowly and he shuddered at the pain of being stretched further, but the egg was still wedged tightly in his anus despite it’s progress. He continued to bear down, crying out as both the baby and the egg were pushed out slowly together, forcing him to spread his legs even further to make room for both.
Now to prove his brain wrong he sat waiting for his cell to tell him that the five minutes wait period is over. As if on cue his cell rang saying time was up. He grabbed the test in shaking hands. He flipped it over with closed eyes. He opened his eyes and looked at the Positive looking back at him. He scowled at
“This sounds so weak- ‘I read playboy for the articles’ – but I really am most into the world building and reimagination of gender and society. Some of my fave a/o is teen rated. I love the idea of having more male characters who have uteruses- as many transmen do in reality- and of playing with our gendered perceptions and expectations about characters and narrative and history.” (Bekah, nonbinary, she/her, queer, 18-25, USA)
