It makes Jimin’s eyes open in surprise, suddenly he’s not sleepy anymore. He hides his face in Yoongi’s chest listening to his mate heartbeat and hoping Yoongi will drop the topic thinking Jimin is asleep. But where’s the luck when you need one?
I just knew this book was going to be just, like the first two. But oh no. I get to 93% of the book and the tears kicked in. I hurt for Jax but most of all I loved his strength. Karter surprised me in the best way. Karter’s father upset me but the man redeemed himself in the best way. Wow! I love this series and I’m looking forward to the next book.
Billionaire shifter Aidan Carlisle rules his pack and his company with an iron fist. His wolf has never shown an interest in taking a mate, but when his estranged best friend suddenly reappears in his life, Aidan is filled with a fierce and inescapable longing… for another man.
But when his stomach cramped painfully and an uncomfortable mass dropped in his lower belly toward his anus, the alien gasped and clutched the underside of his gravid belly. “Noir, I think… My eggs…” He looked down, and squirmed a little in his seat. He could feel a slimy, thick goo spreading in his pants, his gray eyes widening at the realization that his eggs were coming this moment.
They got married a year later when Yoongi proposed Jimin in his Jeju house. He wanted to take Jimin somewhere away, somewhere private where there’s no disturbance of others. It wasn’t extravagant as Yoongi would have liked for Jimin because the latter likes basic things. It was just them. Jimin prepared a meal for them while Yoongi made sure the living room was set with flowers and candles lit.
“This is not specifically about omegaverse itself, but when people say mpreg, they automatically think of omegaverse. The character could be trans or intersex or genderfluid. You never know.” (Devon, genderfluid, pansexual, 15-18, USA)
That’s how Indigo Lockwood sees things, anyway. Unfortunately, there wasn’t a good luck charm in the world that could save him from having his heart broken by an abusive fiancé two years ago, and Indigo’s been desperately lonely ever since.
Or at least they didn’t in Dallas Summer’s world – until a nasty encounter in Central Park shatters that notion forever. Dallas finds his life flipped upside down when a sexy stranger knocks on his door.
Other widely-disliked themes seem to fit into the fact that readers’ likes tended towards fluffy happiness: major character death isn’t what many people come to fanfic for. (In fact, fix-it fic, where writers explore possibilities like bringing major characters back from the dead, ended up #12 on the Yay list!) But there are some that aren’t as explicable. What’s wrong with self/self—stories in which a character has sex with another consenting version of themselves (from a different timeline, via time travel, the result of a magical duplication, or a science experiment gone wrong)? Is mpreg (male pregnancy, through any means) really worse than slavery? And what’s wrong with centaurification—stories where a character gets, well, turned into a centaur? Mysteries.
Then he hurried over to the bathroom, picking up both swaddled babies from the floor and returning to the bedroom, laying them on the large bed next to their bearer. Francis moaned and wriggled weakly on the bed. His strength was spent. Francis threw an arm over his forehead and inhaled sharply as another contraction rolled over him. He was so tired. All he wanted was to sleep, and erase the last four hours. He turned his head and gasped loudly when his muscles tensed again, biting into the duvet to muffle his cries. Niso sat on the bed and watched him, gripping at his hand lightly now. There wasn’t anything he could do but sit there with him. Sighing, he shook his head, wondering when Francis would next give birth and how many more he’d be having. Francis buried his face in the pillow. His soft cries became more urgent as he curled in on himself, clutching his heaving abdomen. His insides felt like they were being ripped open. “Nnnggh..!”With the next contraction he squeezed Niso’s hand, hard enough to bruise. His back arched off the bed as the baby suddenly shifted and the horrible pressure in his pelvis returned. Francis groaned and rubbed his stomach furiously, feeling his muscles seize and contract against his will. This was not his body anymore; he had no control. Niso gritted his teeth but didn’t say anything, allowing Francis to squeeze his hand. “Is it coming yet?” He asked, frowning as he watched Francis continue to writhe on the bed. Using his free hand, Niso tried to keep the other’s legs spread wide, hoping the nightmare would be over soon with the final birth or births. Francis whined, struggling to loose himself from the covers. He wanted to be on all fours but his legs were tangled and plastered to the bedsheets by sweat and birth fluids. He rolled over to his side and looked at Niso. “N-Need to get up..” Francis managed to gasp out before he concentrated on his breath. This time the pain was so strong it felt like knives were being twisted inside his gut. He latched onto Niso’s arm and tried to haul himself upwards, wheezing, when suddenly his stomach clenched and a gush of fluids splashed down his legs. Francis shuddered. “AHHHHHHHHHHH…!”
“It’s so bad to look at them every morning and know that it’s going to like that forever,” He hiccups and moves his head away from Yoongi’s shoulder. Yoongi rubs his tears away and caresses his cheek, “And what worse is that I feel ashamed of them even when I know it’s because I was carrying our baby and I shouldn’t be ashamed of it. I should be proud but I can’t,” He shakes his head no and whimpers when Yoongi tries to shush him.
WARNING: SPAM-SCAMS!!!There are companies who target inexperienced/hopeful writers, often approaching them through scam campaigns like this one on dA: http://laurythompson.deviantart.com/ . Almost 3000 identical messages left in a single day. Yeah, that’s a LOT of GENIUS. There was another I found, fortunately banned already, by the same person.
I pondered abortion, but I looked down to see my hand absent-mindedly placed on my belly, which was now beginning to pouch just a bit and I instantly decided not to do it. It was either adoption or keeping the baby. I could decide that later. Before any of that I had to tell my parents.
I absolutely hate crowded places. I like avoiding crowd as much as possible. I know what you are thinking my profession involves me being around a lot of people but honestly it’s just an occupational hazard for me. I see Manager Minsŏ wave and gesture me to come. I hastily walk towards him to avoid the mob of people around me.
Damon’s the Alpha of one of the most powerful clans in the world. As a tiger shifter, he can take the form of the predator at will. With such a gift, he’s able to conquer claimed and unclaimed lands and expand his territory. With his status, wealth, and looks carved by a God, he’s a triple threat – both to men and women.
Over the years they’d watched Anne Marie grow, they couldn’t deny that their daughter’s behaviour was… odd. For one thing, she hardly took notice of anyone. She never played with other children, instead preferring to play by herself or spin in a corner, or follow insects wherever they went. This had lead to many an incident where either Spy or Sniper would lose her the moment they turned their backs, leading them to run around like headless chickens trying to find her.
Jimin has heard snippets of songs Yoongi has written and produced for him. Jimin has always demanded a song from Yoongi and the latter wrote hundreds of songs for his lover. Each song described Jimin perfectly, in words that nobody has ever told him. They were small but bigger than any songs to Jimin. So he shouldn’t be surprised at Yoongi’s capability, but yet again, the latter surprised him with his words.
Side note to consider: Romance novels featuring strong, heroic knights to the rescue of damsels in distress have also been called misogynistic. However, it’s important to note that erotic literature expresses fantasies, not a person’s political views. The things that arouse us – or not – aren’t logical or follow socio-political discourses. Thus, a reader can oppose unfair gender dynamics and at the same time appreciate “Alpha to the rescue” type Omegaverse plots.
So, the problem seems to be – as ren points out in his quote above – that there simply aren’t enough fics featuring trans characters, and since Omgaverse fics that have male Omegas deal with, basically, men with uteruses who can give birth, the popularity of A/B/O is grating in light of the little interest in trans characters outside this genre.
