So exactly what is this Omegaverse thing? Well, sit down and let me tell you a short story…
Omegaverse (sometimes called ABO or AO) is a special type of literary trope that is considered a kink and erotica material. It originated in the fanfiction world, specifically the Supernatural fandom and has spread far & wide (pun intended) since then.
Now the trope itself can have slight variations according to the writer’s preference, but there are still general characteristics that make up the Omegaverse trope. From canine influences, the trope consists of a hierarchical society broken in two or three stations known as Alphas, Betas, and Omegas. All individuals are governed by their natural need to reproduce through things like scenting, biting, knotting, and mating.
For the Alphas, they are typically large in size with dominant, aggressive personalities and usually knot into their mate to impregnate them. Sometimes they can only knot when they are in a rut (heat).
For the Beta, they are one step below an Alpha in the hierarchical system. Usually they closely resemble a human and can often impregnate and mate Omegas or another Beta.
Finally is the Omega, who tends to be at the bottom of the pecking order. They are usually smaller in size and gentler but still fierce when it comes to their mate and children. Typically an Omega goes into heat, which can be at random, spurred by an Alpha, or at regular intervals but when in heat, their need for sex controls them. Once they are mated to one person then it is for life. Bonds between an Omega and Alpha are considered special and unbreakable.
