This is a hard world for Omegas and to a lesser extent the betas, but I loved getting to visit it through AM Arthur’s writing. I cannot wait for book #2. It’s about Braun’s brother who’s been through the most horrific three years of his life. I imagine his book is going to be incredibly emotional. I cannot wait.
“I’m AFAB genderqueer, and I’ve always been incredibly uncomfortable with pregnancy and childbirth, to the point of feeling ill at ease around pregnant women and young babies, because so much of female gender and the idea of womanhood is wrapped up in pregnancy/motherhood, and the reverse as well, a pregnant body at this point in my culture will inevitably signify “female” to outsiders. As I get into the tail end of my potential reproductive years and start to reexamine my childfree-by-choice status, MPREG gives me an alternative POV, where reproduction is divorced from binary sex, some men have babies, some women have babies, some men impregnate, some women impregnate. I’ve seen criticism of MPREG saying “Why not just write trans characters instead” but for me that misses the point, trans people have babies right now, and that’s awesome and makes me super happy, but MPREG is like good sci fi, it’s utopian possibility, sex as irrelevant, gender as expression.” -Jay
As the gentle omega of his pack, Jesse has always felt content and in harmony with the peaceful surroundings of Sunset Valley—the soft, smooth sand dunes, monolithic purple mountains and cozy clusters of trees, all nestled under a canopy of indigo sky filled with endless sparkling stars.
“Do it,” whispered Sam, nudging you towards his brother. You groaned and slapped him on the arm. You looked at the older Winchester and then quickly looked away. Dean was currently on the couch, looking through newspapers for the next hunt.
“Hello there! Are you looking for someone?” You turn towards the voice to find a tall man with blonde hair. Not the tall blonde you’re looking for, but you assume that he may know of your boyfriends whereabouts.
Joel looked at the man trying in vain to pull the egg out, but the egg was too slippery with fluids for him to even take hold of. Joel poured more wine into his glass and continued drinking into the night. He checked his watch again. 12.30am. The man had been trying to birth the large egg for an hour and a half but was unsuccessful in doing so. He noticed yet another gush of fluids exit the man as he heard a sharp yelp and the man was panting, red-faced, trying to get the large egg out of his birth canal. Joel sighed and finished his wine as he prepared to go out and help the man birth the large eggs and the ones that followed behind.
This story is full of social injustices in the Omegaverse world that A.M. Arthur created. Unfortunately, a lot of parallels can be found in our real world. I found the story to be very captivating and I was totally invested in seeing that Braun ended up safe with a mate that would care for him and protect him but also consider him to be an equal partner in life.
Omega Rian doesn’t want to get married—not to an Alpha, anyway. Everyone knows they have… strange desires, and Rian’s scared. But the Black River Pack is besieged on all sides by enemies, and the Council wants him to get married… now. When he’s paired with Taryn, his life will be changed The kid tattling on each of the parents, like “Daddy snuck a cookie out of the cookie jar this morning” and Arthur just looking at Alfred like “Oh really now?”, and Alfred’s just like “You weren’t supposed to tell mommy that!”
All the MPREGs that I’ve read have the book ending with the couple having the baby. Would love to read more books where they have the baby in the middle of the book and we can experience the couple raising the baby. Or would like to see sequel’s that involve raising the baby. Does anyone have any suggestions? I think I’ve read most every book listed on this site though.
It was on the way to the infirmary that Spy’s waters finally broke. It came out in one big gush, leaving a large puddle on the floor and making it look like the Frenchman had pissed himself. This only added to Spy’s humiliation.
I liked it a lot, but I can imagine it would be too much for some. Jerry and Rex are adorable, and the love they obviously share shines out. However, this isn’t a cosy afternoon read, it’s a dash from one ‘hold your breath’ moment to another. It takes some concentration, but the story itself pulled me along and made me read on until I knew how it ended and the ending is a very satisfying HEA.
