There were also some heavy political undertones as well that I an not sure I appreciated much. I read romance to escape reality and when that shitty reality leaks into my fantasy world in the name of a toy company it turned me off to the rest of the story.
Fertilization may take place in the pouch or in the water before implantation, but in either case, syngnathids’ male pregnancy ensures them complete confidence of paternity. After implantation in or on the brood pouch or brood patch, the male incubates the eggs. Many species osmoregulate the brood pouch fluid to maintain proper pH for the developing embryos. In at least some species, the male also provisions his offspring with nutrients such as glucose and amino acids through the highly vascularized attachment sites in or on his body.
Paramedic Bo Everett has seen his fair share of tragic accidents. Treating a motorcycle accident is par for the course. But when he encounters the broken and injured wolf shifter, Ryker Hill, everything he’s ever known changes.
where Hux and Kylo are expecting a baby of their own and Supreme Leader Snoke is suspiciously joyous when they tell him that they’ve managed to conceive and Hux is pregnant, and it stirs something in Kylo that’s been dormant for a little while–the fear of Snoke
He tries not to be nervous as he drives home. He didn’t forget it’s their anniversary; he stopped this morning and got a really nice bottle of wine for them to share. It’s not him. It’s Stiles – he’s been distracted lately, lost in his own thoughts. He’s been secretive with his phone, and when Derek borrowed his computer, the browsing history had been wiped clean. He really truly believes that Stiles isn’t cheating on him, but he’s worried. Things have been better since Stiles went back to work, but everything’s just…different now, and Derek knows he can’t expect any less, but knowing that doesn’t make things easier.
What I want to highlight is that a person’s views on Omegaverse can be conflicting, not only because certain aspects are similar to those one enjoys in non-A/B/O fics, but also because it’s impossible to size up the entire genre and make generalisations.
A very early example, (perhaps the first?) of mpreg art, from the 1980 Star Trek: TOS zine Galactic Discourse #3, artist Linda White. “Bones, would you come to my cabin please? I think it’s time you learned the truth about Setarcos.” It is a riff on the story Beyond Setarcos
Ellis has every reason to hate Reece, but Reece is desperate and wants one more chance to prove himself as a changed man. But Ellis can’t shake the feeling that there’s always been an undeniable bond between them… a gravitational pull.
You sat in the glass cage, hugging a ruffed up stuffed bear on your lap, one of your hands wrapped in bandages, a needle holding some form of liquid spread into your bloodstream, you winced, moving the clothed hand up to your forehead.
Jax’s story horrifies Karter, and he vows to protect his omega from further harm—but first he has to get his stubborn, angry omega to trust him. Trust is no longer in Jax’s nature, but he can’t deny his connection to the young alpha eager to please him. Jax never thought he’d want another alpha to touch him, much less mate with him, but Karter’s gentle patience breaks down the walls Jax erected around his heart after the death of his first mate. As Jax’s next heat approaches, the investigation into his captivity uncovers surprising connections to several previous cases, and the danger to everyone involved increases. Can he trust Karter to protect him, or will Jax’s past destroy their chance for a happily ever after?

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. 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.
Summary: Eren hates being an omega and is determined to defy his orientation and join the Survey Corps. When a Colossal Titan mysteriously appears and breaks down the outer wall of his district, he and his friends are forced to retreat to one of the inner walls where practices are very different from what he’d grown accustomed to. They are shocked and terrified at the treatment they receive from the military personnel once they arrive on the other side of Wall Rose. With every bit of his humanity and dignity stripped away, Eren’s world is turned upside down. Can Eren still be the hero he always wished to be while trying to deal with the changes occurring within himself?
Getting dragged into a world he knew nothing about, Matty has to rely on complete strangers to keep him safe. When he finally does find Rico, life doesn’t get any better. For one, Rico thinks he’s insane. And for two, the same people that are after Rico have put Matty on their kill on sight list.
Why did the father stay within the same vicinity of Orvins pack? If I’m being chased by people who want to kill me and kidnap my child, I’m going to go as far away from the place they live. They have a car. Sell the car and go somewhere, anywhere, but where the people are who are trying to kill you? Later in the story someone suggest that they go to Mexico. WHY didn’t they think of that?
He should be happy, at least, that’s what everyone keeps telling him. They call him selfish, ungrateful and arrogant. What they don’t know is that he’s slowly but surely falling apart – caught up in a downward spiral – and he’s not even sure he can save himself anymore.

The “werewolves exposing themselves to humans” trope is a difficult one for me to appreciate without an extreme level of thought and sophistication. (The author’s treatment of this “coming out” wasn’t horrible, and had plenty of political and personality-driven machinations, but for those plots to be very enjoyable to me, I yearn for a very significant and deeply well thought-out world building and story. The reasons why werewolves remain hidden for so long, how they’ve interacted with and affected human events in the past, and why they are coming out now are massive questions that are difficult to answer in a short romance. For example, author attempted to address some of this with comments about World War I and the War on Terror, so kudos for at least trying to put such a earth-shattering, seminal event into some perspective. But to me this ices over World War II and the Cold War, which to me vastly, vastly larger threats by far to both humanity and especially werewolves’/supernaturals’ position and stake in the world.) Again, my respect to the author to at least try to address this, even if in this particular case it did not really enhance the believability (or suspension of my disbelief) too much for me personally.
There has been a resurgence of mpreg stories in Star Trek reboot fandom, with the LJ kirkspock community, alone, recording over 30 stories featuring this trope in the year following the release of the movie. It is likely to be the setting that has caused this upswing in popularity, with a number of writers explaining away the process as either alien biology, or through the use of futuristic technology and medicine. 
I definitely enjoyed Arthur’s take on the omegaverse trope. This type of storyline typically focuses on alpha/beta/omega non shifters in an alternate world. Mpreg and mating heat are often a big part of thes …more
Other critics are similar in their generalisations and cite many reasons they have a problem with this genre’s treatment of gender roles. I have tried to organise the following list by topic as much as possible, but the categories frequently overlap.
Joel smirked and caught the egg covered in sticky fluid, cleaned it, and placed it beside the man on the bed. He saw that it was very small, possibly the smallest size of eggs the man was going to have. He saw the man groaning as he felt more eggs go down his birth canal and he rubbed his sweaty stomach, giving it a kiss and feeling it tighten up.
Alternative Universe where Harry Potter his someone else child. No magic involved. Some personality are the same, no matter where you put them. How will someone who never experienced anything react when he starts to experience everything?
I have to say that I enjoyed this book. I cried for Ed, and I love it when a story pulls those emotions from me. Mal, is still my favorite character so I was hoping to see more of him than I did, but who doesn’t hope for more of their favorite character.
Suddenly, Francis felt the ring of fire return as his anus slowly bulged and stretched around the baby’s head. His chest burned and he paused to draw breath but too late, the head had slipped back inside. Get back out here!” Niso felt helpless. He could only stay by the pregnant male and offer just the smallest relief. His hands kneaded the knots in Francis’ heaving flank and lower back, easing some of the pressure. “You’re doing it, just keep pushing. It’s already crowned Francis.” He kissed the laboring male’s shoulder and temple as encouragement then shuffled back to check Francis’ entrance. Niso was able to make out a tuft of dark hair poking out as the baby started to crown, and knew it would come out quickly if Francis gave a hard push.
I like your mind being crazy at two in the morning. This was lovely~ You should do more multiple births (More than one preggers~) Hee~ Awesome! I don’t know why I didn’t read this sooner. But better late than never!
Knowing he wanted it out quickly, Adam beared down yet again pushing, “Aaahhh…gawd…..oooohhh…..unnnhhhh….!!!” Adam pushed and groaned feeling the egg getting almost half way out before he had to stop to catch his breathe.
While she doesn’t like the genre, Victoria Aros Schmidt, (female, demisexual, 18-25, Chile) says “the universe as a whole tempts me in a manner like dystopia does, show us another way to organized the world and society, and the same time show us our defects and dark spots.” Riley (nonbinary, they/them, asexual panromantic, 18-25, UK), contrarily, found they like the genre, “especially fics that question how society would respond and adapt to having secondary genders like alpha/omega/beta.”
The calculated River Robinson is an alpha wolf shifter who works as a financial advisor – he’s used to having everything figured out. All of that falls apart after he becomes divorced from a woman he never wanted to be married to in the first place. Following his first visit to a gay bar, he meets an interesting and charismatic man… who is also oddly familiar.
Why we think it’s a great listen: Seabiscuit was a runaway success, and Hillenbrand’s done it again with another true-life account about beating unbelievable odds. On a May afternoon in 1943, an Army Air Forces bomber crashed into the Pacific Ocean and disappeared, leaving only a spray of debris and a slick of oil, gasoline, and blood. Then, on the ocean surface, a face appeared…..
Jason, the protagonist, is a really smart omega. He had terrible teenage years, but that only made him stronger, more confident, and brave. Mac, on the other hand, is a typical Alpha, however, it doesn’t diminish the impact of the story, the opposite happens, the dynamic of the couple gets better because of that.
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:
“Merde” he groaned, leaning on his desk as another contraction racked his body. They were getting stronger and closer together. Each one felt like he was constantly being stabbed in the back. The irony didn’t escape Spy. He couldn’t help but think how ironic all of it was. He’d dated a few men and many women over the years. He’d got some of those women pregnant by accident, but he’d had no choice but to leave them. No doubt they would’ve had to have given the child up for adoption. And now he was, more or less, going through what they went through. Karma could work in mysterious ways sometimes no?
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.”
