NEW FIC! “The Moral of the Story” (Newt/Hermann, Omegaverse, NC-17)

Title: The Moral of the Story (read on AO3)
Authors: Berlynn Wohl and skylanth
Pairing: Hermann Gottlieb/Newton Geiszler
Rating: NC-17/Explicit
Word count: 7300
Summary: It was just so infuriating: didn’t Newton realize that if he gave up all this “liberated Omega” nonsense, he could be taken care of and coddled and provided for? In the right Alpha’s hands, he would want for nothing. Why couldn’t Newton desire that?

So I helped write this fic! Berlynn wrote the overall story and the sexy bits, and I provided flavor text to round out the evolving relationship between these two unlikely lovers who are bucking the stereotypes of their sexes - Hermann the disabled Alpha may not be able to compete for societal dominance, but his views on Omegas are decidedly last-century. Newt the college-educated Omega is out to prove that he doesn’t have to live by the society-imposed rules of what he should do with his body, and gives a hearty middle finger to anyone who would believe he should be barefoot in the kitchen (or bedroom). Both are working hard to save the world, and both are keeping their own secrets. 

Omegaverse is an interesting AU idea. The structure of the society varies wildly, even between individual authors, but the main idea is that the human race now has three sexes - sterile (and often asexual) Betas, child-bearing submissive Omegas, and dominant penis-wielding Alphas, who go absolutely bananas when an Omega goes into heat. Typically, all genders are represented in each of the sexes. That’s right, dudes get pregnant. And nobody seems to have vaginas. So there’s lots of buttsex…or perhaps humans now have cloacas. Sometimes the people have wolfie ears and waggy fluffy tails. Sometimes babies hatch from eggs. And oh, Alpha cocks have knots at the base for mandatory post-coital snuggles. Because regular penises are so boring and vanilla.

Yeah, this AU is mostly about funky kinks, and we’re mostly here for the weird porn, but it’s also about exploring gender roles and looking at our own society through a sort of extreme parody, often based on what the author would like to explore. Sometimes Alphas are the supreme rulers and Omegas are treated as inhuman sex toys with no rights of their own. Other times, Omegas are treasured special snowflake princesses that Alphas can’t help but go starry eyed for (and get into slap fights with other Alphas over). But however the dynamics are dictated, it’s an interesting way to look at what an enormous impact our reproductive anatomy has on our social structure, how cultures and attitudes have changed over time, and why we view gender the way we do, and how (or if) societal structures would be likely to change if human reproduction took a very different evolutionary path.

Petition to refer to knotting ONLY as “mandatory post-coital snuggles” from now on.

I’m certainly not opposed to subordinating conjunctions becoming prepostions (because reasons), and I couldn’t mount a total opposition to verbation (how do I tirade?).

But I just heard someone ask their assistant, “Could you calendar that on my…calendar?” I mean, the little pause made it abundantly clear: this person understood that what they were doing was madness…but they were going to power through it. What a time to be alive.

things that are not okay

  • deforest kelley telling william shatner on his deathbed “let’s make just one more “Star Trek” movie i sure miss making those movies”
  • deforest kelley never getting to meet his counter part bones, karl urban, in the reboot series
  • a world without deforest kelley
  • and that’s the list
  • there is no more

where the hell is that button when you need it

These two things have been mashed up before, but I tried to come up with some new combinations. (And more are on the way, so stay tuned!)

Temeraire/Hannibal fusion? Yes, Temeraire/Hannibal fusion.

okay guys I’m gonna try to do a thing

how about if

Hannibal Lecter was born in the Vilnia Governorate, but fled Russia to join the Prussian army, where he was a dragon-surgeon. He was part of a crew for a Berghexe, but exigent circumstances led him to harnessing a Mauerfuchs, whom he named Belvedere. His dragon scholarship is esoteric but regarded as second only to Howe’s, and his skill as a dragon-surgeon sees him being summoned to various coverts maintained by the Third Coalition nations to consult on unusual or dire matters of dragon physical (and mental) health.

Hannibal is also famed for his aerial-view architectural drawings: he has an eidetic memory and can recreate these subjects from the unique angles he gets to view them at. (“That’s the Duomo, seen from Belvedere.” …See what I did there? Yeah. You do.)

Will Graham was born in (what became) the United States to Loyalist parents but, as an infant, returned to England with his family after the American Revolution. A third son sent by his parents into the Aerial Corps after they fell into financial decline, Will was part of a ground crew, maintaining the rigging for a Yellow Reaper, but became the captain of a Greyling named Winston when no one else could convince the dragon to wear a harness. He is an expert on combat strategy, with a gift for anticipating the motives and intentions of enemy officers, but he does not desire any sort of promotion in rank, and so despite his talents he maintains only a semi-offical position as a combat adviser (à la the Marquis de Lafayette) to Third Coalition/British Imperial nations.

What happens when they meet? …I don’t know yet. I’ve only just started Empire of Ivory. But I feel like Will would be sympathetic to Temeraire’s desires for dragon rights, and so may become a liaison or strategist for accomplishing those aims.

What about Hannibal? Would his dragon eat people…or other dragons? We just don’t know. More suggestions are welcome.

In the meantime, here is an exclusive first look at Temerannibal (edit courtesy of skylanth):

Okay, but I’d like everybody’s thoughts on this. Why do you think Will cut Hannibal loose when Mason was going to feed him to the pigs? I have my own ideas but I’d like to hear yours. 

warpedchyld had a very good answer for this, but one additional thing to take into consideration: a freed Hannibal would greatly increase Will’s own odds of getting out of there alive and in one piece.
