Misconceptions by Diana Williams — early, long (60 parts) Highlander AU with Methos becoming pregnant. As Immortals are normally incapable of bearing children, a lot of stories in the fandom tried to figure out ways to give the Immortals children. Sometimes a threesome was required, sometimes the Immortal had to be over several thousand years old, and sometimes…well, things happened. (Started sometime in 2001.)
“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 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

Scratch that, it was the perfect time to socialize: a lazy Saturday morning with cotton candy clouds and drowsy orange sunlight. The two were out shopping for Arthur’s insistent cravings. Alfred had wanted it to remain just the two of them, relishing every second of their time together before the inevitable addition to their little family, but they’d managed to draw in quite the crowd upon their entrance to the store.
Saved is my first venture into an omegaverse story where mpreg wasn’t the result of the paranormal. I’ve always been a fan of alpha/beta/omega dynamics, but primarily in a paranormal setting so this story was new territory for me. Regardless if this is your first time reading this type of story or not, one thing you’ll want to be aware of from the start—this is the first book in a series, and there is not full resolution at the end of the story. BUT…the author does an excellent job of drawing yo …more
Comments? Suggestions? Have you written/read an mpreg fic that isn’t on the list? Feel free to leave a comment on this post or, if there is an error on a character post, on the post in question. If the fic you’re linking to is in a language other than English or French, please include a short summary of its major features (pregnant character/s, warnings, kinks, etc.) so that I can categorise it properly.

Sam ground his teeth and felt his eyes sting both with anger at not being there and the idea that he was an uncle but he might not ever be able to see his niece or nephews, “Can I at least see Dean soon?” he asked.
“The omegaverse seems like the ultimate in misogyny and homophobia, all rolled into one. It effectively erases female characters and forces strict and horrific gender rolls into this fictional universe.” (KnightFrog1248, female, asexual/lesbian, 18-25, New Zealand)
The other three ANBU that was present had picked up that something was going on, and they went quiet and started to watch their comrades carefully to see what it was and what it would lead to. The three of them were betas though, so they couldn’t pick up on the omega phermones the way alphas could. Kakashi had no plans on informing them either, and smirked under his mask, feeling a bit superior. Both him and Akatora was sending out alpha pheromones in response to Naruto’s heat, their bodies preparing themselves to answer the need to mate and breed the omega.
His omega must have tuckered himself out building this thing. Honestly, Jack was a bit surprised that Rhys had even had the energy to make a brand new nest, much less one this elaborate. The omega was nearly two weeks overdue and spent the majority of his days either napping or complaining about aches in his hips or the constant movement of the baby that was quickly running out of room in his womb. They had already gone to the doctor to see if something was up, but she had assured them both that being a little bit overdue wasn’t a big deal, and there was no need to try to medically induce the omega’s labor yet.
I pondered abortion, but I looked down to see my hand absent-mindedly placed on my belly, which was now beginning to pouch just a bit and I instantly decided not to do it. It was either adoption or keeping the baby. I could decide that later. Before any of that I had to tell my parents.
The trope was a natural extension of SPN’s popular werewolf and knotting kinks. The concept of going into heat may also have been influenced by Dark Angel, where heat was canon and explored in the fic; there was likely overlap in the fandom due to Jensen Ackles being a cast member on both shows. “Anyway, for a while there, these fics were called Knotting AUs, which is how we know that Dark Angel was an influence, because there actually is a Blindfold fill where the author acknowledges that the ‘J2, animal traits, knotting’ fic they’ve written is a Dark Angel fusion.”
I’ll just save that since I am trying to write a oneshot based off a larger story using this verse as I’ve read a few that I quite enjoy. This was really helpful at explaining this. Thanks for putting this together!
Desperate times call for desperate measures, but sometimes the brightest days are born of the darkest nights. Soon enough these two last-chancers cross paths, but will their secrets destroy any hope they have left? Either way, it’s much too late to walk away.
