Another respondent who pointed towards a certain ambiguity in their dislike for A/B/O is Abby (female, bisexual, 18-25, UK). She criticises “the societal sexism towards Omegas or the internalised sexism. Feels too much like homophobia and sexism rolled into one, which I just can’t stand.” Yet she continues: “It’s funny because I actually enjoy the societal sexism in PWP fics. Like, as a kink that is role-play or just PWP that you can interpret as role-play, I enjoy it (not the internalised homophobia/sexism though – like I mentioned earlier, it’s a complete no-no for me) but having an au where the society treats Omegas as second-class citizens feels too much like an interpretation of our current society and I read fanfic to escape it.”
Niso nodded, picking the baby up and out of the water quickly. “Breathe Francis…” He mumbled, getting out to get a towel and dry the baby. After he wrapped it in a fresh one, looking at Francis. “Are you feeling any better?” Niso mumbled, laying the baby down with its sibling then climbing back in the tub, frowning at the younger male.
The Dialogue of John and Sherlock Series by cwb – Sherlock decides that he and John are in a romantic relationship. John tries to educate Sherlock on what that actually means. (this is the cutest, Sherlock is literally hopeless)
The blurb for this fired my imagination from the start. In a world where omegas are second-class citizens with few civil rights and almost no protections under the law. Bring it on I thought. I’m ready.

This is a good transition to the fundamental question my debated, namely whether Omegaverse is sexist/homo-/transphobic, or actually subversive and an incredibly reflective commentary on society…
“I am quite literally a god,” Thor smirked, “It’s obvious who a good parent would be.” Loki rolled his eyes but barely looked up from his tome. Thor swiftly took the baby away from Tony. He spun around and beamed. “She’s such a beautiful child!” he cried merrily. Natasha looked skeptically at the others. “Thor, be careful,” Natasha warned him. Thor beamed at his friend, “Have no worries, Lady Natasha. I helped take care of Loki when we were children.”
I keep my phone under the cheap red table and search my own name, trying to figure out if there are in fact any rumor articles about me possibly being pregnant out there. Louis is making a bowl of cereal I assume, it’s all he’s been eating since we broke up and he doesn’t know how to cook.
The trend for soulmate/soulmark AUs has cooled off a bit recently, I think, which is fine. It’s just the natural rhythm of fandom, tropes come and go. There have been some really intriguing explorations of the concept, and some that have just used the concept to tell beautiful stories, and this fic falls into the second of those categories. It’s depthful and interesting and well characterised and I was rooting so hard for those crazy kids.
Niso put his hands between Francis’ legs, holding the baby’s head now. “Keep pushing Francis.” He urged him, looking into the murky water where the baby’s head was. The water had gotten more pink from the birth fluids coming out.”Push, Francis.” He said, looking up at him now with a frown. “You’re doing it.” He said, reaching up and rubbing at Francis’ contracting stomach, feeling the muscles stain under his touch.
Fatigue pulls at the corners of his eyes, and he stifles a yawn against the back of his hand as the elevator creeps it’s way steadily up towards his apartment. He blinks wearily at the little yellow numbers, watching them slowly increase.
Braun is a 20 yr old omega whose abusive dies,leaving him alone in a world where omegas have no civil rights and are treated as property. He fears for his future that he sees as hopeless,that he’ll end up in a bad mating and/or just a womb to carry young.
