I’m contemplating using my short ficlet, Legacy, as a jumping off point for an A/B/O Merlin (Canon Era) Novella. I’ve never written A/B/O Dynamics, and do find many things about the trope problematic. Mainly, the elements of rape (non-consent and forced seduction is rape IMO), and to a lesser extent descriptive heat preparation or copious amounts of semen (and that’s putting it delicately *clears throat*).
I’ll have to do some world building to avoid the aspects of the trope I inherently don’t like.
Set Season Four Post – The Darkest Hour
A visiting noble shows a sexual interest in Merlin. Merlin is not only hiding the fact he’s a Warlock, he’s also hiding the fact he’s an Omega Male. Omega Males were thought to be extinct. Merlin uses a tincture to suppress his scent and pass for a normal man.
