“Simply put, mpreg. It’s not a squick for me, but I’m not crazy about it, and often short fics follow the cliché structure of they meet – they bond – they have sex – they have a baby. It’s a bit too Cinderella for me, too quick and not very satisfying, emotionally speaking. (…) Ah, and I’m also not sure I’m crazy about this trend I’ve seen around of calling the babies “pups” and such and using wolf/dog terminology. I see where it comes from, but I don’t really buy why a human omegaverse society would evolve like this.” (Lou, female, panromantic/grey-a, 18-25, France)
I’m not big into M/M romance, but have to admit that the idea of a man carrying a baby sucked me in. The storyline was on point but I wanted to know more about both Cam and Harris. And the cousin. That twist needed to be developed more. There were some editing issues, but the biggest was Cam’s ex-boyfriend. In the beginning of the book it was mentioned that he left him for another man, BUT when Cam was telling Harris about it, a woman was mentioned.
Was the author ever gonna tell us what Jason’s power is? Don’t hint at something for that long and don’t reveal it to your readers. What are you waiting for? Book 2? Where the main character will obviously be Abel? What is the big freaking deal about Jason other than his spring horniness? I’m pissed. I sat through 200something pages and I still don’t fugging know.
Summary: In a world where an unmated pregnant omega is seen as nothing but garbage, what will Arthur do when he loses everything? Oneshot, omegaverse, UsUk, rated T for slight language and sexual implications.
It doesn’t help that… he’s completely and utterly alone, with only quick and easy online hook-ups for company. But what would he do if he met somebody that he couldn’t discard after a few sexy camera chats?
Sam grunts, “Fine,” and turns them around, holding onto Dean just as tightly as he has been doing, and Dean soon feels the edge of the bed against the back of his knees. He lets himself fall, taking Sam with him and tugging him on top of him. “Jesus, get naked already,” he demands and Sam grins down at him.
But he had to push either way, and as he did the baby moved down more. He spread his legs as wide as they could go, and he tossed his head back and screamed as the egg pushed it’s way out little by painful bits. He felt as though his babies would tear him in half before he could birth both the egg and his baby.
The trope rapidly beyond SPN and J2, and by 2013 A/B/O was so saturated within fandom culture that Kristina Busse included the essay “Pon Farr, Mpreg, and the rise of the Omegaverse” in Anne Jamison’s fanfiction academic anthology, Fic: Why Fanfiction Is Taking Over the World.
Castiel smiled as he held the celestial being in his arms and he felt his grace melt when those blue orbs met his. He held the being close to him for a moment before slowly handing it over to Dean, who was just staring with wide, adoring eyes.
The deep blue ocean was wide open for any of it’s inhabitants, creatures both known and unknown to the humans above. One of the unknown inhabitants was currently at one of the deeper parts, where it was darker. His vision however was not limited, and he seen everything as if the sun was shining down to illuminate everything before him.
Why I read this book: This week is Out Of Your Comfort Zone, and I had just snagged this one when it was free. I wasn’t sure what I would read for this week and one of our reviewers pointed out it was mpreg which isn’t really my cup of tea. I also saw the note that is had warnings for physical, emotional, and sexual abuse, all of which are hot buttons for me.
In DC Comics canon Kon-El gets half his genes from Clark Kent and half from Lex Luthor. This leads to some Smallville Clex fic where he is the result of mpreg rather than laboratory experiments. Pinky and the Brain from Animaniacs also have a genetic son together.
“I like the idea of a twisted reality where society is still fixated on gender but the skew is different, i.e. it’s not as much women that are repressed but omegas. it’s interesting to explore the themes of gender bias and prejudice using a totally fictional universe and it’s easy to relate to a lot of the injustices that omegas face and also fun to play with those themes.” (erin, female, pansexual, 18-25, UK)
I can honestly say that this story was not what I expected. I loved this story. Though a shorter story, the action, the adventure, the drive to mate, and an unreasonable parent made this an excellent read. Never really been into the MPREG genre, but this one captured my attention and I so want to know what is going to happen with the twins…(spoiler)…Matthew and Ezra are an wonderful couple and the journey to happiness was a good one…Gus Klondike did a phenomenal job with the narration…can’t wait to read the next part of the story…

He picked up his book, annoyed that he’d lost his page. He lay down on his bed, thinking maybe that would help. Another sharp pain a few minutes later answered that question. Spy curled up slightly from the pain. Non non non. He didn’t like this, he didn’t like this at all. Spy began to pant slowly. He got up and tried to walk it off. Another wave of pain shot through him. Spy leaned on the wall placing one arm above his head, panting even harder.

At night he gazes down into the glittering lights of the city, and wonders what it would be like to leave everything he knows behind, and indulge his curiosity among the very beings who threaten his people’s existence.
This world is one where no females exist, and a small percentage of males, the omegas, have the ability to become pregnant. Omegas go into heat, an overwhelming physiologic experience, every three months. It is during that 48 hour window that an alpha could impregnate the omega. And, the offspring can be any of the three genders: alpha, beta or omega. In this world. alphas have the best opportunities, best job prospects and best lives.
