In pitch-perfect voices, Kathryn Stockett creates three extraordinary women whose determination to start a movement of their own forever changes a town, and the way women – mothers, daughters, caregivers, friends – view one another. A deeply moving novel filled with poignancy, humor, and hope, The Help is a timeless and universal story about the lines we abide by, and the ones we don’t.
As I said in my heading, I was expecting dazzlement but only got shine. The shine came in the concept of the storyline and the execution of it, which was very good. My problem was Braun. I just didn’t like him. And when you don’t take to one of the main MCs, you’ve got a problem and Houston…..I had a problem.
Braun Etting is a young Omega living in an alternate version of the United States where no females and three classes of males exist – Alphas, Betas and Omegas. Alphas are the most powerful in physical, economic and social spheres. In order to reproduce, an Alpha must mate with an Omega while he is in heat and at his most fertile. Betas enjoy much of the same rights as Alphas, but they are unable to reproduce. Omegas are the nurturing parents, valued on …more
“I have to back to Hogwarts to get a few things. You need to stay here and help him deliver until I get back,” said Poppy, ignoring the incredulous looks she got from all three men in the room. She grabbed the floo powder and flooed to the infirmary.
I did some research since it thoroughly confused me. What I found was this reply to an anon question by johnlocktentacles: “I guess the biggest problem for me, personally, is that there are a lot of folks out there who just loooove to read and write omegaverse fics, but won’t give fics with trans characters the time of day, and that’s shitty. If you go search for johnlock omegaverse fics, you’ll find plenty of reading options, but if you search for johnlock fics where one or both of them is trans, you get a tiny fraction of the number of results. to me, what that says is that people want to fetishize characteristics of certain trans people without actually acknowledging that trans people exist. People would rather invent an entirely new fictional gender structure than have trans characters.”
Sebastian sits at his table,Reading and sipping his tea,When he suddenly hears his name screamed in a much panicked voice. Sebastian sets his tea and book down and runs out the door and down the hall. He busts into Ciel’s room and his eyes go wide as he sees Ciel on the floor,clutching his stomach and panting heavily.
Both baby and father were sleeping peacefully at the moment. Little Mary had been born hungry and Sam breast fed her while he cooed at her. Dean heart’s had soften watching his little brother feeding their daughter. Why would he give any of this up?
Trapped but Safe Birth (Mpreg)I was trapped. The two teenagers stood by side me and then made way for the third. They weren’t respectful at all. They all thought I was nothing but trash. Well sometimes I do think that. I got rejected for becoming pregnant with my boyfriend. Even more stupid, I’m a male. I’m a male and I’m pregnant. I dropped out of school for this reason and now I’m trapped. These completely strange teenagers thought it was funny to see a male being pregnant. I’ve seen others but it’s very rare.
An hour later both Sam and little Mary Joan Winchester were both asleep. Sam had bought a few articles of unisex, baby clothing. It turned out that little Mary was shy and didn’t show her sex through the ultrasound; the clothes were kinda big for her but that’s all they had at the moment. There was also a little, white bassinet by Sam’s bed where he had laid down their newborn daughter.
“Is this the real life? Is this just fantasy? Caught in a landslide, no escape from reality. Open your eyes, look up to the skies, and see. I’m just a poor boy, I need no sympathy, because I’m easy come, easy go, little high, little low. Any way the wind blows, doesn’t really matter to me. Mama, just killed a man. Put a gun against his head, pulled the trigger; now he’s dead. Mama, life had just begun. Now I’ve gone and thrown it all away. Mama, ooo. Didn’t mean to make you cry. If I’m not back again this time tomorrow, carry on, carry on; as if nothing really matters.”
3. Faith by Dragongirl16: What if the wizarding world turned its back on Harry? Who will stay true? Who can he turn to? What will he do? ***A few words about this one: This story was written during the golden age of HP fanfiction (early 2000s) so the many cliches that we all make fun of today are included in here. HOWEVER, I do believe that those many fics were actually modeled after this one. The writing is nothing amazing, and could’ve benefited from a beta (were there even betas back in 2003..?) but the plot is actually one of the most original that I have ever read. I wasn’t able to put this story (and its sequel!) down. I still think about it to this day. This story with its sequel amount to over half a million words fyi.
As Jack turned around to grab his things and head inside he saw someone in the distance looking out over the grand view that his property provided. More lost hikers he thought. He started to walk toward the hiker figuring he better tell them to get going unless they expect on being stuck in a storm with him. It would not be t

He went back to Draco and tried once again to wake him. Draco didn’t even wake up enough to bat his hands away this time. Harry finally got frustrated enough to slap his face, hard. Draco woke up enough to blink blearily at him, and promptly went back to sleep. That was when Harry remembered to potion Draco had taken right before going to bed. He hadn’t been sleeping well because Harry kept waking him up all through the night, going to the bathroom every hour and complaining of backaches. It figured the one time Draco broke down and took a sleep aide, it would be the one time Harry truly needed him awake.
After a while, the sweatshirt Spy was wearing was removed as it had become far too hot and sweaty for him to wear. He was given water as he’d had no liquids all day, but turned down food since he wasn’t hungry.
I enjoyed this book. Preston Walker reminds of my other authors. He makes it easy for you to get into the story and to fall in love with the characters. I will recommend this book to all of my friends
In the World blessed by the Wondering Goddess, Three kingdoms try desperately to work together to correct the mistakes their ancestors made a long time ago that caused the greatest upset in history: The Disappearance of the Omegas. With a mysterious Mist kidnapping omegas overnight and erasing the memories of their birth from birth parents, society’s Alpha’s are more than confounded as their kind slowly dwindles out. Will they be able to atone for mistakes from the past? Or will they go extinct?
Laying there breathing, Alex had to figure out how to continue pushing long enough for whatever it was to make it past his sphincter. This was taking a toll on him, he rolled over with some difficulty – maybe he just had to switch positions and things will be easier. Grunting a bit, he managed to roll onto his knees so he was in all fours position. He held himself up on his forearms. “Mmmmm,” he rocked back and forth on his knees.
Some quotes have already pointed towards reasons this trope can polarise as powerfully as it does. In this final part I’d like to take a closer look at what my participants cited when asked about what they like and dislike about this trope, which frequently surpasses simple squicks and kinks and touches topics like sexism, homo- and transphobia, to name but a few.
“Well….if you can figure out a way to do it without me having to move much, then I’m all yours.” Rhys fidgeted in place, lifting his leg with some difficulty and managing to get his calf hooked over Jack’s hip, encouraging the alpha’s thigh to press teasingly between his legs. A filthy grin quirked at Jack’s lips as he leaned in, pressing a quick kiss to his omega’s cheek.

This period of incubation can take much longer than the production of another clutch of eggs by the female, especially in temperate regions where pregnancies last longer, leading to a reproductive environment in which sexual selection can be stronger on females than on males due to increased male parental investment. Interestingly, this reversal of traditional sex roles has only been found in pipefishes, whereas seahorses have largely been accepted as monogamous. Some pipefish species display classical polyandry because of this unique situation. Male syngnathids usually prefer females with large body size and prominent ornaments such as blue skin pigmentation or skin folds. Intriguingly, syngnathid males in some species are apparently capable of absorbing eggs or embryos while in the brood pouch. In these cases, embryos with the highest survival rate are those whose mothers display the preferred phenotype.
Rhys hummed as he stretched, clumsily setting aside the plushie so he could pull closer, frowning when he couldn’t get his mate closer. Rhys looked down at his abdomen through bleary eyes, frowning.

You have to much creativity, I’m pretty sure than your writes block don’t go stand for much longer. Maybe When I reply this it’s already been passed! Hahaha. Anyway, You have all the reason to be proud, you are making a great job!
Whoa! Alex is the name of one of my OC’s I’m using for mpreg stories. LOL I never knew there was already a pregnant Alex giving birth out there. lol Anyway, I loved this story. Your detail is great. Lovely work!
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.
His senses was on hyper alert, and a smirk was dancing all over his face as he ran into the thick woods surrounding the headquarters. He had no doubt that no matter who caught him, he would be sore tomorrow, and he looked forward to it.

Most omega werewolves want a mate and pups, but Lee Aung prefers an unconventional party-boy lifestyle. Yet at 42, he’s stopped going into heat, which means he’s expired goods – no longer a fertile, young omega that alpha wolves drool over. So Lee scams free samples of Wet Heat, a synthetic pheromone, by pretending to be a happily mated test subject at Wet Heat headquarters. There, Lee spends two years being interviewed by the reserved alpha scientist, Cain.
