non violent games

Omegaverse headcanon

In ancient times, Alpha suitors used to fight one another to prove their attractiveness and win the favor of an Omega. In modern times, the government passed laws clarifying that rut or heat lust is no excuse for physical assault or public brawling. However, the high courts have ruled that “non-violent games of skill or chance” are acceptable, so long as any party, including the Omega, may withdraw their consent and participation at any time. Also, the Omega is the final judge and their choice of partner cannot be questioned or argued by anyone. They may choose the company of someone other than the clear winner, or they may reject all the participants entirely. That is their right.

The most popular forms of Alpha “Contests” are:

  1. The Dance-Off: You will often see two Alphas preening, strutting, and flexing to show off their attractiveness and superior dance moves in order to impress an undecided Omega.
  2. Shot Put: For an Omega in an urgent rush, “Let’s see which of you can hurl this heavy object the furthest,” is a simple, clear-cut contest that needs little in the way of equipment or advanced preparation.

Cultural expectations are changing, however. More frequently, modern Omegas are looking for traits other than physical strength and athleticism when choosing a potential partner. This has lead to new forms of competition including:

  1. The Pop Trivia Quiz: Some Omegas who value intelligence have started carrying around decks of cards with trivia questions on them. In a case of rival suitors, the Omega will act as the Quiz-master, and the Alpha who answers the most questions correctly will win the Omega’s favor.
  2. Speed Chess: Other Omegas carry around a folding travel-sized chess set. Sometimes, you will see two sweaty Alphas with dilated eyes, hunched over a chess board, trying desperately to focus their attention on the game pieces that will determine their future romantic fortunes.
