“Really, Sam, I’m gone for a few months and you go and get yourself knocked up like a common whore? Forgot to use a condom? Do you even know who the father is or are you completely in the dark? Good thing your body is rejecting the little parasite.”
“Yes, good…” Joel murmured, watching the large egg stick out and he wrapped a hand around the tip of it, tugging at it experimentally. This prompted a scream from the man birthing the eggs and he let go of the egg.
Since she burst spectacularly into view with her debut novel almost two decades ago, Zadie Smith has established herself not just as one of the world’s preeminent fiction writers but also a brilliant and singular essayist. She contributes regularly to The New Yorker and the New York Review of Books on a range of subjects, and each piece of hers is a literary event in its own right.
Luke Wyatt, handsome and wealthy suitcase entrepreneur and shifter, is about to close the deal of a lifetime. Travelling to Monaco to meet with the rich and famous, he finds himself rubbing shoulders with the perfect investors in an ideal setting. But before he knows it, things get dangerous. Very dangerous.
Ciel never really cared for the alphas that fawned over him and treated him like he was a doll they were afraid of breaking. He wanted sex to be rough, dirty, kinky. Sebastian knew exactly what sort of deal he was making with the twisted little Prince.
Making a maneuver to avoid the trap, he landed on the ground, and suddenly he had Kakashi right in front of him, catching his hands to prevent any hand seals, and Akatora against his back, gripping his hips and growling softly over his neck, the smell of powerful alphas surrounding him, making his breath hitch. It had been a short chase, but Naruto blamed it on the fact that he didn’t really want to be chased…he wanted to be captured.
In Super Bowl XLIX, Seahawks coach Pete Carroll made one of the most controversial calls in football history: With 26 seconds remaining, and trailing by four at the Patriots’ one-yard line, he called for a pass instead of a handing off to his star running back. The pass was intercepted, and the Seahawks lost. Critics called it the dumbest play in history. But was the call really that bad? Or did Carroll actually make a great move that was ruined by bad luck? Even the best decision doesn’t yield the best outcome every time.
Note: The “scary” tags for this fic are meant as trigger warnings. I tried to set them up so they can be filtered out. Levi doesn’t abuse or exploit Eren. This fic does not “romanticize abuse” at all. Those tags relate to other character interactions, but not the two of them with each other. Non-con/abuse/etc. are not glorified in this fic at all. They are written as the heartbreaking, awful things that they are. This is also a story with a heavy focus on character growth. Levi and Eren both become better partners to each other as the fic goes on.
When Chad Stone and Josh Bennett last crossed paths, both had been on the fast track to fame. Josh — Chad’s best friend Ashley’s scorching hot older brother — was on his way to football stardom, while Chad was about to embark on a musical career after being accepted to one of the most prestigious music conservatories in America.
Dean took a deep breath, his entire body and soul exhausted. He knew he should be resting already but he just didn’t want to miss out on a second of being around his children. He just wished Sam and Bobby could be there but they wouldn’t even be able to look at the children. Before he could even think another thought, he passed out.
Ten-year-old Henry Lecter’s sitter just bailed, leaving him alone to watch over his younger siblings. And that would have been fine, had a man from the FBI not chosen that precise moment to show up at their door.
This fic is equal parts terrifying and gorgeous. AmandaDBone imagines what would happen if mysterious dust were to fall from the sky and wreak havoc on human biology. It’s a think-piece disguised as sci-fi disguised as poetry, and I personally feel it is wildly underrated.
This story involves all your favourite Hetalia characters as thy struggle with life’s most difficult task. Birth. But what makes the situation more difficult is the places where they give birth. Mpreg graphic but short birth scenes.
Just as he got into the circle he felt something warm and sticky wetting his pants. What the hell? That was the last coherent thought he had before he felt the excoriating pain in his abdomen. Holy shit, it’s true that, due to the stress of Dean dying and disappearing, he had had pains but the doctor had reassured him the baby was fine, even if it was kinda small. He knew what was happening now; he was in labor.
Dean beamed as the little girl was passed into his arms. He cradled her, running his hands over the slickened wings that were so tiny that they appeared fragile. Her eyes met his and a smile formed on her face followed by a little chiming laugh.
“Well, actually, no.” (F/N) sat down at his desk, ramaging through some drawers. “I wanted to ask you if you like it here. At this school, I mean.” (F/N) pushed his glasses up as he pulled out some papers.
It wasn’t a surprise his personal servant Mithra had become impregnated at the start of that Spring, (Mithra had yet to escape a breeding season without becoming impregnated, his body longed by all as it were) and Adonis was taking advantage of the fact Mithra was his own personal servant and not another’s by making him hold his pregnancy for as long as he could manage, and enjoy the fruits of this lustrum’s
Comments: So there I was reading the first stories in this series and thinking to myself “Yes! At last a really well-written take on the Jotun!Loki marrying Prince Thor cliché” and then the author was kind enough to round off the series with some mpreg so I could slip it onto this list. All the stories in this ‘verse are charming, delightful and hot, so run-don’t-walk.
At least one-third of the people we know are introverts. They are the ones who prefer listening to speaking, reading to partying; who innovate and create but dislike self-promotion; who favor working on their own over brainstorming in teams. Although they are often labeled “quiet,” it is to introverts that we owe many of the great contributions to society–from van Gogh’s sunflowers to the invention of the personal computer.
Comments: A truly epic fantasy AU that, despite drawing on those (much-beloved) Harlequin romance clichés, is legitimately well-written and a joy to read. Its does an excellent job of blending personal and national politics, religion and magic, while at its core delivering some beautiful slow-burn Charles and Erik romance. It is, of course, also very hot.
I’m sorry to say, but no, male betas cannot get pregnant. As far as I know, in no version of this verse are they able to. Some may have knots, yes but none have omega reproduction systems. While as female beta’s can get pregnant, though rarer than omega pregnancy, male’s can certainly not. They do not go through heat either, and are almost practically normal humans.
Ciel screams out as he holds his knees and bears his chin down to his chest,Straining and panting. His face hot with sweat and exertion,He can’t help but scream out at the seering,tearing pain he feels. He’s sure he’s going to be ripped open,or worse,ripped completely in half. He lets out a panicked breath as he stops pushing,and he grabs hold of the curtain behind his bed and holds on tightly,Nearly ripping it from the window as he bears down again against the enormous pressure in his anus. Before long,He begins to feel the ring of fire and he gulps in a mixture of fear and pain.
His stomach had deflated considerably, and as he rubbed it and pressed in on it, the afterbirth from both the egg and the baby was passed as he pushed it out slowly. He looked up, forcing himself to sit up and lean against a rock as his mate handed him their two new babies, a twin boy and girl, while she cradled the egg to her chest.
Fertilization may take place in the pouch or in the water before implantation, but in either case, syngnathids’ male pregnancy ensures them complete confidence of paternity. After implantation in or on the brood pouch or brood patch, the male incubates the eggs. Many species osmoregulate the brood pouch fluid to maintain proper pH for the developing embryos. In at least some species, the male also provisions his offspring with nutrients such as glucose and amino acids through the highly vascularized attachment sites in or on his body.
The extremely jealous alpha thinks his omega servant/bedmate is sneaking off to hook up with another lover. When he finds out omega is basically working for (what the alpha considers to be) a subversive organization, he mostly shrugs it off with just a little warning to his wandering omega about potential dangers.
Omegas have gone missing over the past century, but that will not stop Emperor Drocco from finding his. He enlists the help of renowned historian, Cailyn, a strong-willed Beta female. She is not at all a suitable mate for an Emperor… but the longer he spends in her company, the more she stirs something within him like no other ever has.
“Oh fuck!” Sniper exclaimed. Colour drained from face. Forget being shot, blown up, set on fire, or getting back stabbed several times, or even that one time he thought he might’ve caught chlamydia from a koala, THIS was the most terrifying thing the assassin had ever had to endure. There was a mad scramble to undo and pull down Spy’s trousers (or Soldier’s trousers that Spy had borrowed rather) before the next contraction.
John expected his eldest son to present as an Alpha, like himself, but when Dean turns out to be an Omega, there’s more than just disappointment in John’s eyes. Medication can take care of it, though, damp Dean’s scent, mute his Omega instincts; and his heats…well, John can take care of those, too.
Indeed, Loki was aware of how terrible he looked, though thankfully he was no longer in agony thanks to a good dose of morphine. He still donned a neck brace, but he also now had plaster casts on both his arms and legs.
His attention was beginning to make Akatora feel powerful, and the smell of the omega pheromones was beginning to awake his own heat. Finishing up his meal, he turned slightly to his side, so that his eyes meet those of Naruto, and this time the blonde did let a purr escape him, as he leaned his body back on his arms against the table and stretching out, showing of his body for the two men.
I highly enjoy shifter romances, so I was eager to read this book which centers around Lance and Ewan. The world building was great, and the characters were well detailed, although, I didn’t like Lance too much until the end of the story. Some things were glossed over, but that’s okay, I just wish that the two main characters would have truly communicated better. It’s a fast paced tale (which I do like), with a happy ending, and no cliffhangers. =)
