a light-handed approach to regulation by hazel. (Hockey RPF, Jonny/Patrick) Explores a lot of the societal dynamics of an omegaverse world without succumbing to them, and is hands-down my favorite ABO fic.
I really don’t know what to say, it was ok I was able to read it in its entirety however at 70% I started skimming. Something was missing, I really can’t explain the lackingness (made up word) I felt reading this book. I didn’t hate it however I didn’t love it either.
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.
Stiles and Derek are getting along, but they’re not a family, and they’re sure as hell not mates. Christ, they’re basically just two stupid guys who happened to get pregnant because of a full moon and sheer dumb luck.
The Syngnathidae family of fish has the unique characteristic of a highly derived form of male brood care referred to as “male pregnancy”. The family is highly diverse, containing around 300 different species of fish. Included in Syngnathidae are seahorses, the pipefish, and the weedy and leafy seadragons. The males of some of these species possess a brood pouch on the trunk or tail; in other species, the eggs are merely attached to the male’s trunk or tail when the female lays them. Although biologists’ definitions of pregnancy differ somewhat, all members of the family are considered by ichthyologists to display male pregnancy, even those without an external brood pouch.
“Where do I start? Everything that applies to slash applies doubly to Omegaverse. The power dynamics and how they are balanced out. The projection of female issues on the Omega – like pregnancy, bodily cycles, being penetrated, being (in many fics) seen as “inferior” in strength or social status. The eroticism that stems from the pure need of heat. The Alpha as the ideal male – protective, fierce yet caring, driven mad by his desire for the Omega, and ultimately a provider for his family. I could go on…” (merlenhiver, female, 30-40, Germany)
At the infirmary, both Sniper and Heavy helped Spy onto the operating table. Spy then proceeded to get on all fours again, rocking himself back and fourth. He then lowered his head and shoulders to the table and started moaning like an injured animal. It was then Medic showed up in his full medical attire.
“Oi you cant call me a brat, have you forgotten i’m older then you” you grinned. Levi tsk’d and looked away, ‘were his cheeks pink? or am I seeing shit?’ a bell rang in the background. “Shit! Levi we gotta get our asses moving or we’ll be late for club” quickly standing I grabbed Levi dragging him off to our after school club.
Triplets weren’t the most common for me, though I had gotten knocked up a fair share of times in the last 10 years and twins occurred the most often, making me big, but not nearly as massive as triplets did to my artificial womb.
Under b), I quoted TheSilent (female, 18-25, Germany), who criticises both the heteronormative gender roles and the biological excuse for rape/dub-con. Regarding the latter, she goes on to say she is being “slightly hypocritical because I do sometimes enjoy the Sex Pollen trope, but I guess I prefer that because at least that’s not supposedly in a person’s “biological nature” but is an external influence and can be a one-time thing.”
Niso nodded, picking the baby up and out of the water quickly. “Breathe Francis…” He mumbled, getting out to get a towel 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.
Alfred is a soon to be father with money problems. His job doesn’t pay enough to cover the rent and a future hospital bill. Arthur is pregnant with their first child and it turns out in a month they are going to lose their small home. NOTES: USUK and omegaverse
Trapped by a MonsterDoctors said that I was a medical anomaly. Never, in the history of mankind, has there been a documented instance of a biological male become pregnant.This was news. Big news. And there was no way to keep this covered up for long.
Synyster VengeanceBrian Haner sat in the bathroom looking at the plastic stick that lay upside down on counter. It seemed to laugh at him. He still had 3 minutes before that tiny plastic stick would decide his fate. He never knew that one drunken fling would lead to this moment. He never even figured that this was possible until he learned about men actually getting pregnant and carrying their babies to term.
Worlds apart from pack life is city-shifter Kade Sinclair. With three rescue dogs, a busy job as a social worker and hours spent volunteering at the local animal shelter, he barely has time to think, let alone pursue a mate. Besides, no boyfriend has ever passed the three-dog litmus test.
So essentially, cis men are used instead of trans men, which is fetishistic, but even when trans men are used, it’s nearly always fetishistic in how the characters and narrative are handled. […] In reality, mpreg doesn’t explicitly claim to be related to trans (or intersex) people, but it cannot be viewed outside of that context in a world where trans and intersex people are also displaced from our bodies and our realities by cis dyadic people, in a world where our body parts are literally objectified and fetishized and removed from our humanity. I literally don’t give a crap what anyone’s intent is, that’s the reality of it, that’s representation that harms trans and intersex people, and if people fail to realize that, then they’re harming trans and intersex people, categorically.
