The romance novel nightmare that didn’t exactly rock the courts but was a hot mess regardless.

So is this where the terms "alpha male" and "beta male" come from, "alphas" being nowadays "Chads" and "betas" being submissive "cucks" come from?

"Who do you belong to!?" has the exact same energy as "Why did you say that name!?" Omegaverse is secretly about Batman v Superman, change my mind.

So when this first came up, I was in class listening to all my classmates gush about Tiger King and all the vicarious joy of watching something so fucked up unfold, and I was low-key judging them, like "how can you get excited by this trash drama that has nothing to do with you?" and then I log in to youtube and see "Omegaverse Lawsuit", and go "FUCK YES, I DON'T KNOW WHAT THIS IS, BUT I MUST KNOW EVERY DETAIL!" aaaand that's when I realized that these kinds of videos (like this, and Maggie Mae's Jacklyn Hill video, and Big Joe'ls existential drama videos, and most of Sarah Z's channel) are MY Tiger King. But as always, I dig your content, and have probably listened to every video essay like four times (I like having video essays on while I eat or do chores)

I feel bad for the lawyer pointing a blatant contradiction that could dismiss the entire case only to have the person making the claim agreeing to this. I cannot help but to think he must have looked at the judge intending on asking "wtf? Can we throw this, already?" Talk about low IQ writers...

So my question: How is it that Warner Bros. is NOT suing Addison Cain and Blushing Books for what is obviously a VERY thinly veiled rip-off of one of their movies, but with added erotic elements? I mean, it's not even hard to see. It's OBVIOUSLY just The Dark Knight Rises with fucking. Also: This sort of thing makes me kind of glad my book never got noticed.

WOW. I'd be curious to know when she wrote her fanfiction in 2012. Because I just did a quick search and I can find hetero omegaverse fanfiction dating from february 27th, 2012... And, as of the moment I write this comment, we are april 27th, 2021. Just sayin'. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

The USA would be a lot better place if there were a special group of police (as in not connected to the normal ones) who monitored the courts for perjury and prosecuted it. Even if it was relatively simple stuff that was purely self contained in each cases court documents (as opposed to them having to fact check outside the courts).

You know, all of Addison's posts have her already painting herself as the victim of a mob. She makes her statements with the predication of "everyone won't believe me and the angry mobs will come for me for even saying this", stuff like that. She paints herself the victim as her opening move, and it's extremely cowardly.

What really gets me about this whole... fandom, subgenre, theme... whatever, is that despite all this fascination and sexualization of wolf behaviour and anatomy, this doesn't seem to have ANYTHING to do with furries at all. Somehow that makes it even more bizarre that they aren't furry or werewolves, they're just... humans... with wolf bits and act under a bad understanding of wolf hierarchy.

Honestly, I wanna know what the original author of that one supernatural fic that ended up inspiring the entire genre thinks about this whole thing. Like, not only did they inspire hundreds of thousands to millions of works, there are legal battles going on about who owns the tropes of the genre they inspired and they (presumedly) have gotten $0 and minimal credit from the whole thing

I usually read japanese fanfic. I'm surprised how different these tropes can be in different places(the opening nearly give me a heart attack lol). ABO is more like soulmates AU in Japanese fanfic. Stuff like heat and Mpreg exist but most of the time they are there to show how strong the characters care for each other

I'll spare you the effort. A certain part of male canine anatomy swells up like a knot of wood after, uh, completion. Thus the name. This locks the wolves together for a bit, and evolved that way to help ensure the females can't get knocked up by another wolf/dog/whatever.
