Listen, Fresne is the gender-fuck goddess of the Omegaverse. Fresne took one look at the rulebook of the ‘verse, said to themselves “Fuck that noise in particular”, and promptly tore it to poignant shreds. This is the Omegaverse in its full potential – lyrical and magical and dripping with heat, smothering you in sensuality while it cuts to the quick and makes you think. There are many stories in the series, they aren’t linked, and they are of various lengths, so maybe this is cheating … but to me, they are all masterpieces to be treasured so fuck your rules. In particular, I recommend Stars in a Phyrgian Sky, Gordian and A Study in Azure.
It’s not weird, the author’s being way too harsh on themself. I love a good mpreg fic. There’s not enough mpreg in my opinion. I could read mpreg fic all day every day and still want more. So I enjoyed this very much. It’s got great characterisation, especially for Stiles being terribly practical about it from the moment he finds out he’s pregnant, and yet oblivious about how he and Derek find each other without quite realising. Cute.
There were also some heavy political undertones as well that I an not sure I appreciated much. I read romance to escape reality and when that shitty reality leaks into my fantasy world in the name of a toy company it turned me off to the rest of the story.
How Do You Know? by LaurieRoar – John having sex with Virgin Sherlock to see whether or not his claim that he doesn’t like sex is true. (my fave) (but I hardly ever see this recced) (super fucking hot)
As the son of a fallen angel, it turns out that Magnus has some rare Warlock traits, including fertility. When they discover that Alec is pregnant, there are so many new obstacles to navigate. Especially as there is a war against Valentine looming over the entire Shadow World…
night when they would kiss and plot Snoke’s demise together. He remembers it all, their five years together and all the plans they had for the future, together. But he’d thrown that all away when he’d denied the call of the Dark, when he’d to kill his own father back on Starkiller base. Ben stands and stare at Hux for a little while. Hux stares right back at him. He doesn’t have his little smirk on his face, the one he only reserved for Kylo. His face his blank, his eyes tired.
“Why does she keep doing that?” Spy huffed nervously as he watched the now four year old Anne Marie twirling around and around in one corner of the room. She had her arms stretched out, and was smiling and giggling to herself.
Draco helped Harry out of the robe he had put on earlier, and Poppy examined him to see how far into the delivery he was. While she was conducting the examination, Harry felt the overwhelming urge to push. Poppy’s eyes widened and she hurried to the door, shouting for Severus. Severus appeared in the doorway and she pulled him over to the bed.
“The mirroring of misogeny in A/O dynamics. Worse, portraying the discriminations between A/O in a way that it looks like that is something natural.” (Ged_the_Winged, female, heterosexual biromantic, 15-18, South Korea)
I love these two books and the narration by Gus Klondike is just perfect! He does the emotion so well and I love his pacing and voice quality. He does a nice job with the voices and making the listener feel like they’re part of the story.
The shorter male’s gaze lowered to Eren’s distended stomach. It was still hard to believe that curled up in there was his kid. A little being that was part him and part Eren, nestled safely inside it’s father
“Well, I only have experience with “The Gilded Cage” so far. The exploration of biological determination and social oppression is fascinating in this context as well as what makes weak and strong. To make Sherlock, a strong character we clearly admire and root for, an Omega, with all of the distressing biological imperatives and legal unpersonhood just makes these issues resonate even more. It is also fascinating to witness John’s character, a morally upstanding and compassionate individual, be so distressed to be at the mercy of biology as well, and to see his gradual education of the issues concerning Omega. I know all stories have a different biology/world, but I really like the one Beautifulfiction has created.” (Myladylyssa, female, lesbian, 30-40, USA)
“Ok coming right up” As Jess walked back to the kitchen, Jamie felt a wave of pain. He took deep breaths. it only lasted about 15 seconds. Jamie thought it was just Braxton hicks contractions, but a few minutes later he felt another rush of pain. This time it was more intense. When Jess came back with some egg and toast, Jamie felt another whoosh of pain. He didn’t want to tell Jess, because he didn’t think it was a big deal. Jess saw the look in her husbands eyes and knew something was wrong.
Evidence by JezebelGoldstone – Angry papa Lestrade comes bounding up to 221B demanding the return of all the evidence Sherlock stole so the detective tells the DI about some of the evidence so he’ll let him keep it. (Sherlock is amazingly sentimental in this, I love him)
To be fair this is one of the better m-pregs I’ve read. The sex scenes were decent and the characters, the actual male ones, were alright. But even with that, I still didn’t like it lol. Maybe I’ve been too warped by other m/m romances, and maybe due to the reviews, my expectations were too high, but this book just didn’t hit the mark for me. I doubt I’ll be reading part 2, Abel’s story.
