Author: Clio
Title: The Maternal Instincts of Betas
Pairing: Teen Wolf: Scott McCall/Allison Argent
Rating: NC-17
Summary: Scott expected to go through junior year alpha-omega claiming as an observer and maybe find his mate later in life, like most betas. Then he met Allison, and it wasn't just his love life that changed, but his whole future.
Warning: (skip) A/B/O verse. Mentions of past and future mpreg.

Length: 18,000 words
Notes: Like rest of this mini-verse, this is grade-A Romantic Fantasy Sugar that presents instinctive mating-for-life at seventeen (or so) as entirely unproblematic. There's a lot of overt mutual consent going on, but I know some people feel that mating as a concept is always already dub-con, so note that this really is an omegaverse story, including preset roles from birth, a biological imperative for mating (heat or rut) and biological differences between alphas and omegas, and all of those are present in the story as well as the mating-for-life and the tentacle-like ovipositor. There isn't any actual mpreg on the page, but there are mentions of past mpreg (the sheriff) and future mpreg (Scott and Stiles). And as will become clear in this story, betas in this mini-verse aren't just "regular" humans, but a blend of intersex and pansexual, and there are fewer of them than alphas and omegas.
Thank you pinetreekate for the incredible beta and for holding my hand when I realized this story was going to be much longer and more involved than I had anticpated.
This is the final story in the Claiming is Confusing 'verse, and closing the 'verse is bittersweet, like all endings. Thanks to the mods at the a/b/o ladies challenge for giving me a place to think about omegaverse femslash, which led to everything else; to the the Wincon'12 femslash panel for the idea of the ovipositor for alpha and beta females being tentacle-like; to Kaister for commenting in the Derek story that I should write one about Scott and Allison; to all of you who offered help and support along the way; and to everyone who has read the stories in this 'verse. The response has been amazing, and I can't tell you how much I appreciate it.

I just want to make it easier for other kids )
