He didn’t think the pain could get any worse, but as his baby’s head crowned to it’s widest point, it seemed to triple. And the mass in his anus persisted, being slowly pushed down with each push he gave to birth his baby. His pelvis felt too incredibly full with what was going on inside him, but all he could do was push and hope for the best.
The ice rink was empty this time of night, except for one lone young man standing on the edge and staring at the cold ice making up the ice rink’s floor. His thoughts were swirling and his eyes betrayed his worry to any that would happen upon him. He was expecting someone special to arrive any time, but it wasn’t for what the other thought.
He could feel the movement of the babies inside, which made a smile creep it’s way onto his face. Each time he felt their movement inside his distended belly, it made everything worth it; he’d soon be a father. He turned his body so his stomach was now above himself while he swam, and he rubbed the orb while admiring it’s growth.
For a lot of women, pregnancy and childbirth are weird, anxiety-inducing and/or terrifying events to contemplate. Stuff just happens to your body, which you have absolutely no control over: Organs grow to massive proportions, or rearrange or get squashed, an entirely new blood supply magically grows, what amounts to an alien parasite starts wiggling about inside you, and the psychological coup de grace, the sure knowledge that one way or another, that kid’s coming OUT. If you want to have children of your own, it’s a rite of passage that must be endured, but (in the US) our society’s pregnancy rituals (e.g. long lists of substances and activities to abstain from, obsessing over weight gain or lack thereof, putting 100% faith for a good outcome in the hands of a person with a financial incentive to cut you open, etc) are terrible and anxiety-inducing in themselves.
Comments: Subtilior is my favourite writer in the X-Men fandom, so I knew I wasn’t going to get a cookie cutter omegaverse experience out of this — and I was right. It’s a ‘choose your own ending’ fic with four alternate endings (none are at all fluffy, the ‘happy’ ending included, take the fic warnings seriously). Whichever ending you love the most though, this fic has a brilliant noir-esque atmosphere, and the irreverent, foul-mouthed and fashion-conscious Erik depicted in this frequently had me giggling despite the dire situations.
It only took seconds after the archangels arrived before they were moving into action. Castiel had started to panic, his wings shaking and thrashing around the room as some angelic instincts took over. He felt his body start to react when another angel came near Dean and a feral, dangerous growl escaped his lips as he curled his wings around his mate.
James and Logan get kidnapped after dinner one night. Will their friends realize they’re gone in time? Will James and Logan be rescued? Will any of them make it through? And most importantly, will James and Logan survive? No slash.
He reached into a small pouch he kept tied to his widened waist where he kept a knife, and cut the cord to his baby and tied it off tightly. His stomach suddenly contracted again and he groaned while he kept his baby in his arms, and started to bear down. The pressure in his anus grew even worse.
In this A/B/O universe, there are no shifters. There are no females. There are Alphas who are in charge, Betas who are barren but are allowed to hold jobs and adopt children (usually Beta and Omega children), and Omegas who are the lowest of the low and whose sole purpose, it seems, is to be mated to Alphas and be good little breeders.
The nature of heats and the biological component to Omegaverse frequently lead to a blurring of boundaries between consensual and non-consensual sexual situations. The crux of the matter is: Can an Omega consent while in heat?
When Count D flees America, he moves to Europe to evade Leon Orcot. But the detective is persistent and continues to search for D. After moving the shop to Berlin, D discovers that Leon has left him with more than memories… ICP Part 1
Overall, it was a sweet and explicit omegaverse story with enough plot and relationship tension to keep things interesting in addition to two heated and sizzling encounters. There was certainly a bit of manufactured feel (falling in love in 2 weeks), but elements adding to the tension (a beta friend who was not a girlfriend) and interesting if underdeveloped supporting characters (former wife, protective alpha friend, meddling sister, and sweet daughter) helped give the quick novel life beyond the sizzled. Some setting information, especially regarding the usually ignored role of betas in an Alpha/Beta/Omega omegaverse was a nice touch. Also, I’m not always appreciative of Alpha violence and protective instincts, but I was pretty pumped when Thomas goes a little alpha in support of a non-alpha.
A mostly quiet birthHer nurses’ uniform had grown tight over the last nine months, but somehow she’d managed to squeeze her girth into the white dress. She stood at the emergency room counter, watching as a woman about her size was wheeled in, hissing and panting. It was obvious the woman was in labour, her partner panicking beyond belief as he followed along beside her.
In March 2011, the NCIS Gibbs/DiNozzo Centaur-fic Heat was posted by Kathana-grey, positing many of the same concepts used in early Omegaverse works but without the same terminology. Omegaverse elements included the submissive character going into heat, differentiated male biology, self-lubrication, fights for dominance, specific body postures to show submission, marathon sex, and a culture structured around differentiated biology.

“Easy for you to say” groaned Spy, “You’re not the one giving birth on all fours like an animal- Argh!”. He didn’t get the chance to finish what he was saying. As the next contraction came, Spy rocked himself back and fourth, huffing and panting like he’d just run a marathon.
The circus arrives without warning. No announcements precede it. It is simply there, when yesterday it was not. Within the black-and-white striped canvas tents is an utterly unique experience full of breathtaking amazements. It is called Le Cirque des Rêves, and it is only open at night.
Saved is the first book in the series and I enjoyed it. I didn’t end up loving it unfortunately but I absolutely enjoyed it and I really very much enjoyed seeing Braun and Tarek again in this one. In Heard, Jax is coming at his relationship with Karter from a similar emotional place as Braun was to Tarek. Both Jax and Braun are strong, independently minded omegas. They are both coming from a place of being dominated and dictated to, and are reluctant to be in a relationship because they want to be treated as equal and are wary of whether that’s possible with an Alpha. I liked the way Jax dealt with everything and how he handled all of his emotions. Although I like Braun and understood all of his trials and tribulations, I guess I felt like he came off a little bratty maybe? I’m not sure, he just didn’t melt me like Jax did. I was never turned off or had to remind myself what he had gone through to understand or justify his reactions. I guess the best way to say it is that while he was strong he wasn’t rigid, he still had soft edges.
The relationships between the Alphas and the Omega were the most engaging parts of the book, generating some decent interest as well as a twist or two that I wasn’t quite expecting, but also occasionally left a bit to be desired. There were certainly some sweet and reassuring “rescue and comfort the Omega” scenes, but also some interesting conflicts, including some over-the-top reactions that made some sense and helped make this to be a bit more than a simplistic “rescued and then fated to mate”story.
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.
A uterine transplant was performed in Saudi Arabia in 2000, from one woman to another, but it did not result in a pregnancy. This advance drew speculation about the possibility of a male receiving a womb transplant, and bearing a child from the transplanted womb.
Lúc ấy tôi gần như bất tỉnh, may mà cậu ta lay tôi dậy. Cố căng hai mắt mờ nhòe vì đau đớn và mồhôi, tôi dựa vào sự giúp đỡ của cậu ấy mà đi được đến sô pha.

Nhờ thế mà cậu nhóc chú ý đến vết ẩm ướt ở đáy quần, “Chú ơi, chú ổn chứ?”
For Adelene (female, straight, 25-30, USA), the genre of Omegaverse shows how fandom, consciously or not, is dealing with “toxic hyper-masculinity, docile housewife, and people. It creates an interesting dynamic where you are in a way removing the stereotypes from genders and assigning them to a dynamic that is assigned based more on the personality of the character.” The infinite ways authors depict this, despite starting from the same framework, “gives you an insight into the many ways those stereotypes are perceived, reacted to, broken, and affect people both in fic and real life. I say real life as well since any writer draws from their own experiences and that always colors their writing.”
