There are a lot of variations of Omegaverse that nobody seems to agree upon…Should everyone be more of a were-animal type human? Or is everyone strictly human? Do female Alphas have dicks or do they just have the Alpha scent and instinct? How many dynamics are there?
Well, for this month I’m going to use my own form of Omegaverse so that requesters aren’t confused as to what kind of Omegaverse to use! Buckle the fuckle up *evil laughter*. In the Haiykuties variation of the Omegaverse, the humans are strictly that. There are no werewolves or other type of were-animal.
What is Omegaverse?
Omegaverse is a alternate universe where humans in society evolved to have the social/biological hierarchy of wolves. The hierarchy is as follows, from highest (or most dominant) to lowest (or least dominant); Alpha, Beta, and Omega.
Alpha- The Alpha dynamic is the most dominant dynamic. They are the ones with the most aggressive and protective instincts. They are larger and stronger, and they are the most dominant in bed. Their scents are usually strong and tend to make those less dominant than them want to submit.
Beta- Betas are basically considered to be like the “normal humans” of Omegaverse. Their dominance tendencies vary like regular humans. Male betas are large, but not as large as Alphas and same could be said of Female betas and Omegas. They are generally the middle ground and are more abundant than Alphas and Omegas. Their scents are usually softer than Alpha scents but still kinda sharp (think “fresh rain”) and can calm down scared Omegas and enraged Alphas.
Omega- Omegas are the most submissive of these roles. They are the ones who are timid and nurturing. You’ll often find that the other dynamics gravitate toward them, not just for their personalities, but also for their scents, which are naturally sweeter than the other two.
(A little side note/disclaimer: These traits I listed are just traits that the dynamics tend to lean towards. Timid Alphas exist and so do Fiery Omegas)
What is the difference in biology?
The biology in Omegaverse can get a little confusing because instead of having one sex, people have two; gender and dynamic. The gender of a person is either female or male ( if they want to be nonbinary that’s fine too), which is used for how they present themselves to the world, and the dynamic is either alpha, beta, or omega, which is how they reproduce.
First thing first, parents usually can tell the gender of their child at birth, and they could pay extra to find out the dynamic of their child early. If they don’t want to do that, dynamics usually present themselves 2-3 years after puberty, after pubescents grow into their “adult” bodies . Scents will change, Alphas will have Ruts and Omegas will have their first Heats.
Beta biology is pretty black and white. Since they are closest to what a “normal human” is, they reproduce how a straight couple reproduces; men have penises and women have uteri. Betas do not have Heats nor Ruts, as they are fertile year-round.
Alpha and Omega dynamics are a little more complicated in biology
Alpha- Alphas are guaranteed to be pumped full of testosterone (hence, why they’re so aggressive), but depending on their gender, their penis will either be prominent (males) or retractable (females). Female Alphas do still have a uterus, but they’re usually smaller, while their penis is located where a normal clitoris is. Female Alphas can get pregnant, but it is super rare as their uterus is smaller with less of a chance of a fertilized egg to stick. An Alpha’s penis in general is larger than a Beta’s, and it is the only kind that will “knot” during sex (which means that the base will enlarge and keep them inside an Omega after cumming). This gives them a better chance for reproducing. Alphas also go through a Rut, meaning that their testosterone is at its highest. This is similar to an Omega’s Heat in that it heightens an Alpha’s sex drive, but it also makes them more aggressive and possessive than usual.
Omegas- Omegas are the ones who have the most estrogen in their body and are able to get pregnant and give birth. The difference between female and male Omegas are where their vagina is located. A female Omegas’ entrance to their vagina is through the vulva (so basically like a Beta female), while Male Omegas have a cloacae that leads to both their vagina and their rectum (which is closed off during their Heat). Male Omegas do have a penis and can impregnate another person, but it is super rare as their sperm are weaker than their eggs.
(side note: A Cloacae is a common cavity at the end of the digestive tract for the release of both excretory and genital products in vertebrates. Yes, it is a real thing. Yes, I’m shocked too.)
Omegas all have Heats, which are when they’re at their most fertile. Heats (and Ruts) last for about 3-4 days, and they happen once every couple of months. When an Omega starts their Heat, their scent will get strong enough to make all Alphas in the vicinity go crazy with the need to mate immediately. An Omega’s Heat is probably more potent than an Alpha’s Rut, as Omegas will have a multitude of symptoms that won’t go away until they are mating.
Symptoms of an Omega’s Heat would be:
- Sweating profusely
- More natural lubrication (both can cause dehydration)
- A strong urge to be dominated
- Lack of rational thoughts (other than sex) called Heat Delirium
- Hard cramps
- Increased sensitivity to touch
Heats are usually very painful for an Omega when they don’t have a mate or even toys to help them through it. Omegas can take suppressants to skip their Heats, but that can come with a danger of becoming infertile if they take suppressants too often. Instead, most Omegas like to shut themselves up for their Heats and wade it out with some toys (or their mate if they have one). Every building (even schools and universities) has emergency sound and scent-proof “Heat Rooms” should an Omega start their Heat unexpectedly. They do have the option of birth control through the pill, which is popular among younger Omegas, but it does come with some side effects, such as a change in smell, less intense heats (only by a small amount), and mood swings (much like regular birth control, everyone reacts to it differently, so there are more symptoms).
A unique part of Omegaverse biology is the ability to pair-bond with each other, meaning they’ll combine scents through a process to become permanently bonded with each other as mates. Everyone in the Omegaverse has a gland near their neck that produces pheromones and doubles as their way to pair-bond. The pair-bond usually manifests emotionally first before the couple can claim each other (through biting each other’s glands), otherwise the process wouldn’t work and no bond would be established. This prevents Omegas from being bonded against their will.
How does Society cope with these dynamics?
Historically, society hasn’t had a good handle on these dynamics, resulting in too many Omega rapes, sex trades, and arranged marriages, resulting in an abundant number of suicides. On the Alpha side, too many Alphas were murdered in an attempt to win over Omegas, brutal violence was commonplace, and their aggressiveness was encouraged as a sign of strength.
Timid Omegas and Aggressive Alphas were seen as the most desirable traits for those presentations, leaving no room for variation of personality at the risk of being looked down upon.
As society became more modernized, more laws have come about to make sure every person is safe. Alpha aggressiveness became less idolized in favor of self control, since controlling one’s instincts is harder than succumbing to them. Rape, arranged marriages, and sex trades were outlawed. Mental health is taken just as seriously as physical ailments.
In the event of Heats, there always has to be a Beta on scene to calm any tensions between Alphas in the vicinity (since Beta scent is naturally soothing). The Omega is questioned to see how aware they are, and if they are found to have already succumbed to Heat Delirium, then their families, friends, or mates (whatever contact of choice) are called to help take them back home. On site Betas are responsible for taking them to the closest Heat Room until the Omega’s contact shows up. Alphas are to be kept away from the Omega unless the Omega gives permission for an Alpha of choice to mate them.
In the event of Ruts, Alphas are restrained by any surrounding Betas and taken to a Heat Room to reduce the chance of an Alpha attempting to force themselves on any surrounding Omegas. They can either request a punching bag or a sex toy to help them through their Rut, but when they calm down they are escorted home. If an Omega volunteers to *ahem* help an Alpha through their Rut, the Alpha can either accept or decline their offer. Since Alphas don’t suffer from Heat Delirium, they are able to make (somewhat) rational decisions and show some restraint, raging hormones aside. These guidelines are taught to teenagers of every dynamic, both before and after they present.
In the event of a duel between Alphas because of a dispute, Alphas are to be supervised by other Alphas and Betas, so as they could be stopped before one of them dies. These duels have to be reported to the authorities beforehand by one of the supervising Betas/Alphas should the duel end in a stalemate, which then they would settle it legally. They also report it so that the authorities can provide the Alphas with an on-site doctor. If they don’t report their duel beforehand, it’ll be considered assault and all parties will be arrested. (I want to say that the duel guidelines follow a similar format to the “Ten Dual Commandments”….except it’s legal and without pistols lol….and they don’t die (hopefully)). Some people think this is barbaric, but Alphas seem to like this method better than have it drawn out for months until one of them snaps. Duels are more common among younger Alphas.
Nowadays, all the dynamics are welcomed to be themselves, whether an Alpha is naturally timid or shy, or an Omega is fiery and aggressive. People are complex and they should not be completely reduced to their instincts.
Heat Rooms are fully stocked with water (that risk of dehydration tho), snacks, blankets, sterilized sex toys, and they have a bathroom with a shower.
