I’ve tried plotting, and I’ve tried sitting down and start writing but found they were not for me. Every writer has their own writing technique. And what they prefer to write. If you’re wondering where I’m going with this, just give me a minutes or seconds depending on how fast you read. Every fiction writer I know or have read their novels love romance. Romance is the central theme of their story, whether it’s gay or het fiction. But here is the difference. In het romance, a woman can get pregnant because it’s natural and it wouldn’t be looked at as weird. But when it comes to mpreg I notice some not all readers turn their nose up to it.
Both alpha and omega are secretly searching for an extraordinarily powerful artifact, and when each realizes the other is pursuing the same item, there is quick agreement to look for it together. There is no real drama or distrust, even though the omega has been horribly abused by alphas in the past and is working for what the alpha considers to be a dangerous and untrustworthy organization. This type of scene would have been ripe for some potentially interesting character and relationship development.
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.
He was so persistent and his tenacity annoyed her. He was so clever and his innovation annoyed her. He wore his emotions on his face so openly and that annoyed her. But what annoyed her more than anything was how much she noticed him. A series of short vignettes about Astrid and Hiccup. HTTYD2 spoilers.
I love this so much. ❤️ Does Ben suddenly feel like Kylo again, remembering the conversation he and Hux had had about baby names if they were ever lucky enough to conceive one? Does he go back out to General Organa who says that Hux is too important to the First Order to not know their secrets so she tells Ben that he has her permission to use other methods to get information from Hux? Does Ben stay awake all night thinking about the pain that he’s got to cause Hux, but he shouldn’t care because Kylo Ren is dead and he was in love with Hux, not Ben? Does Ben go to Hux the next morning (who’s had another round of beatings and is bruised all over) and probes his mind for information but instead finds memories of Hux and his daughter? His entire pregnancy, alone, the terrible and traumatic birth where they both nearly died, her first words and her first steps, her first use of the Force and Snoke telling Hux that she’ll be a great asset, just like her father was? Does Ben come out of the probe to find that he and Hux are crying and all Ben wants to do is take Hux and leave? TELL ME! ❤️
She nodded in understanding, slowly pulling away as he regained his footing. Her hands slid beneath his shirt, palming the sweaty flesh beneath. When she settled her hand against a hard bump at the base of his belly, they both let out a soft gasp of surprise. The baby had definitely gotten into position!
What begins as seemingly benign rude comments on one of his online articles, soon spirals into threatening tweets and implications of impending murder. And when the pair can no longer ignore the very real threat of their safety, Dane decides to take matters into his own hands.
But when alpha and omega meet for an interview in Dane’s office, sparks fly and the two are soon falling deeply in love. And when Lorenzo discovers he is carrying Dane’s pup, he wonders if his article will be enough to absolve Dane of any wrong-doing—or will the public believe that Lorenzo is trying to orchestrate a cover up to keep his lover out of jail?
Castiel smiled when he felt the other celestial form crawl into his hands much faster than the other as though it had learnt from its sibling. With a smile, he gently pulled out the other bundle of light.
I’m actually less okay with it–although it still falls under “cis writers use caution,” not “NEVER EVER”–if the pregnant character is a trans man. Depicting a trans man as pregnant isn’t necessarily feminizing or genitalia-obsessing or intrusively gawking at transness, but it can easily tip that way.
Couple birthDan can you go buy some groceries?! Yeah sure what do you need? Uhm I need milk, eggs, and ooh maybe some yogurt please. Okay I will be right back./He left leaving Mariana alone at her house resting. She went to the mirror to see her progressed 9 month twin belly./Wow you grew a lot my babies. I will maybe see you soon twins Daniel and Mary. *touches belly* my doctor said my due date isn’t till 3 more days away from today./She walks to the chair and sits bored./Maybe I should have gone with him. I am really bored home alone. The shop isn’t far from here at all so I’m sure he will come quickly./She gets up and moves to her bedroom and lays down and closes her eyes./Maybe I will get some rest until he gets back./She tries to fall asleep but her stomach was uncomfortable./*sighs* why is it so hard to try and sleep. You two are making it hard for mommy to rest./She gets up from the bed when her stomach hurt her./OOOHH! /She clutched her stomach and sits down worried. Another contraction ca
Misconceptions by Diana Williams — early, long (60 parts) Highlander AU with Methos becoming pregnant. As Immortals are normally incapable of bearing children, a lot of stories in the fandom tried to figure out ways to give the Immortals children. Sometimes a threesome was required, sometimes the Immortal had to be over several thousand years old, and sometimes…well, things happened. (Started sometime in 2001.)
this is my first time reading Eola Eden but it will not be my last. I will definitely be reading the whole series. To start I was not sure. The characters seemed shallow and easy. However I stuck with it and was so glad I did. I ended up loving Peter and Nitro. I wish there could have been a bit more detail in their getting to know each other process but it picked up and was really good. I hope we hear more about them and their future….
Tôi cố gắng đạp xe đến địa chỉ thừ hai thì cảm giác ẩm ướt lan rộng từ đũng quần kéo theo những cơn co dồn tới. Tôi kiệt sức đổ gục xuống vỉa hè. Hai tay cuộn chặt lấy cái bụng đã căng cứng từ bao giờ, mồ hôi chảy dài trên trán tôi. Nhận thức được điều gì đang diễn ra, tối cố lết đến căn nhà gần nhất. Nói thì nhanh mà trải qua rất chậm, ấn chuông cửa xong tôi dựa hẳn vào cửa thở hổn hển. Tiếng rên rỉ thoát ra từ miệng tôi thay vì những nhịp thở đều đều . Đúng lúc ấy thì cảnh cửa bật mở, chủ nhà là một cậu thiếu niên.
the reason i get so discoursey about mpreg is not solely about the kink itself or the various tropes for it. it stems from the fact that this kink and these associated elements like a/b/o are largely created and supported by cis people. what do you think this looks like to us? that you would rather use convoluted psuedoscience to wave away biological impossibilities with cismpreg, just so you can have dudes with dicks? that you would rather pass off things like anal live birth as normal in your creative works, rather than make a character a transman, which wouldn’t alter the character in any other way other than their genitalia? it holds up cissexist values that only further alienate and offend transmasculine fans of this kink, including myself and others. as well as any other transmasc people who have to see cismpreg art and be reminded that the majority of cis sentiments is that penis = male, and in order for it to be ‘male pregnancy’ a guy has to have a dick even though thats entirely biologically bogus. its hurtful. its insulting to some of us who are trying to normalize our bodies and use interests like this as coping mechanisms, creative expression, and of course, good wholesome jerk-off material that we can actually relate to
