A subgenre of erotic fiction (originating in fiction) in which humanity has a dominance hierarchy based on stereotypical pack dynamics, consisting of alphas (dominants), omegas (submissives), and betas (neutrals).
2013, Kristina Busse, "Pon Farr, Mpreg, Bonds, and the Rise of the Omegaverse", in ''Fic: Why Fanfiction Is Taking Over the World'' (ed. Anne Jamison), page 321:
- Still, just as important as the kinky aspects of the omegaverse are the emotional ones: the forcefulness of heat cycles and impulsive desire, the inevitability of imprinting and bonds, the joys and horrors of mpreg.
2017, Marianne Gunderson, "What is an omega? Rewriting sex and gender in omegaverse fanfiction", thesis submitted to the University of Oslo, page 102:
- What omegaverse fanfiction does is to construct imaginary bodies and societies based on premises drawn from the discourses that surround sex and gender, and imagine what situations would arise if those premises were embodied and experienced by a familiar pop-cultural figure.
2018, Laura Campillo Arnaiz, "When the Omega Empath Met the Alpha Doctor: An Analysis of Alpha/Beta/Omega Dynamics in the ''Hannibal'' Fandom", in ''The Darker Side of Slash Fan Fiction'' (ed. Ashton Spacey), page 125:
- It may be worth considering if dark Omegaverse slash fiction, with its descriptions of excruciatingly detailed and shocking sexual fantasies, is a reflection of the social reality both fan fiction authors and readers have experienced within an unequal and discriminatory patriarchal society.
