I’m a curious sort of person and I couldn’t let this just sit without exploring it further, so I began reaching out on social media to find out why we like this sort of obscure subgenre. Through Twitter I was getting a lot of amazing feedback, but a lot of people don’t feel comfortable discussing it so openly so I set up a survey where people could anonymously explain why this genre is so appealing to them. The responses were incredible. What struck me was not only the similarities among our responses, but also the rare response that made the experience personal for that one respondent alone.
I’m sure a lot of fanfic readers empathise with her sentiment. Male pregnancy used to be my one major squick, and only when one of my favourite wrote the trope did I begin to warm up to it (still not something I seek out, though, even though kid fics are my guilty pleasure).
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.
Omega. Breeder. That’s what Erik was. As an Omega, his pack had all the rights to him, and anyone willing to take him could claim him as their own when he came of age. Only… Erik didn’t want to be claimed. Determined to avoid a forced mating, Erik decides to run – only to find himself in the arms of the Alpha of the neighboring pack. But could happily ever afters exist for an Omega like him…?
The prompt inspired several fills, including Heat (Between You and Me) by the_miss_lv (reposted in namespace 2010-11-28) and No Substitution by pianoforeplay (reposted 2011-01-27). See netweight’s timeline outlining the evolution of similar prompts that led to the invention of the A/B/O genre. See also Knotting.
So female Alphas and male Omegas have flat chests, but can grow breasts to lactate for children? What are the breasts of female Omegas like? You mentioned Omegas are usually frail and small. Does this mean female Omegas are flat and stay flat even during breastfeeding because of their frailty, or are female Omegas usually well-endowed because of their nurturing nature and childbearing role?
Freddy groaned and woke up. He saw that Bonnie was gone and sat up in question. He thought to check the show stage, but Bonnie wasn’t there. That was when he heard it, faint, but undeniable. Someone was retching, and it sounded like Bonnie.
Emerging Secret (Mpreg) Chapter 1 Part 1 Jim sat at his desk quietly. He felt the baby move down under the edge of the desk; she was getting so big. He was getting so big. He was 8 and a half months along, but she had dropped a few weeks prior. It had been hard hiding such a noticeable secret, especially a secret that gets bigger as time goes by. Jim wriggled around at his desk subtly, trying to maneuver himself at the desk so his bulge wouldn’t be pressing against the edge of the wood. It didn’t help.
Spy by this point, had taken to lying on his side. He breathed into the mask. But still, the gas and air did little to alleviate the pain. If anything, it only made him feel woozy and nauseous. He felt another contraction begin. Now they were really strong and coming just minutes apart. Spy breathed in the gas and air, but when the contraction reached its peak, he let out an anguished cry.
“Shh, it’s ok, you’re doing great. Just a little bit more and we can meet our baby. Don’t you want to meet him? It won’t be long now I promise.” Jared peppered his face with soft kisses and wiped at the sweat.
Omegaverse fic is a sub-genre of fanfic that became popular in the fandom from mid-2010 onwards, and is now found in many fandoms. The genre overlays canine-type characteristics on people, including pack hierarchies, the idea that receptive sex partners may go into heat and the canine characteristics of penis’ having a bulbous knot at its base. The genre is also referred to as A/B/O fic after the Alpha/Beta/Omega divisions of pack hierarchies.
Joel turned his attention to the other man as he heard him say that the birth was starting and he turned the man around to face him, spreading his legs wide and looking at his opening which was spasming as the first contraction hit him. He saw that the hole was only slightly wider than before and resumed his pacing.
”That will be all,Thank you. Take the day off,I know as well as you that you are due soon,As I am. Please,You mustn’t strain yourself” Ciel smiles before sipping his tea. Sebastian bows as best he can to Ciel and leaves the room,Leaving Ciel to himself. Ciel sips on his tea and sighs as he rubs his stomach. Suddenly,He feels a pain consume his stomach. He clutches his stomach and leans slightly over the table,He pants softly as the pain grows worse,and he lets out a relieved sigh as the pain ends. Slowly and cautiously,He stands,a hand over his stomach. He waddles to the door,But is dropped by another excruciating pain. He drops to his knees and cries out. He rocks back and forth and groans as the pain finally eases. He stands up cautiously and walks out of the dining room. He waddles to his bedroom and sinks down onto the bed,Rubbing his stomach gently. He takes his eye patch off and lays it on the table before closing his eyes,Trying to get a much needed nap. Eventually,He falls asleep but is awoken a short while later to another stomach cramp. He groans loudly as he rubs his stomach. As the pain eases,He stands up,and begins to pace his room. He stops by the window and glances out it,Smiling slightly as he sees Grell twirling around girlishly in the garden. Suddenly,Without warning,an excruciating pain drops him,Causing him to fall hard on his knees. He screams out in pain and curls onto his side,Screaming out for Sebastian or anyone else who might hear him.
Sam was half chanting and half wailing ‘no’ and ‘it’s too early’ over and over again. What the actual fuck was happening here? Sam had his arms around his stomach protectively and tried to curl his body while Cas was holding him.
Mary Abigail: I have always been a serious reader but reading romance has always been an outlet for me to be happy and this, makes me happy. It’s entertaining with just enough drama and maybe a bit more – I do need more.
Dane’s company is making headlines for all the wrong reasons, as rumors of nefarious activity have begun to fly; and though he is a strong, commanding and charismatic alpha, even Dane cannot stand against the slanderous onslaught that threatens to take do…wn his business.
