In Heat/In Rut

THE IN HEAT/IN RUT AU MEME
not an alpha/beta/omega meme


There's no need for elaborate backstories for this AU. You go into heat, rut, whatever you'd like to call it. You've always done so since you were of age to do so. It's a socially accepted norm, and people have gotten used to the difficulties that come with the mating seasons. Life goes on.

Isn't this alpha/beta/omega, then? No, not at all. In this meme, there are no gender-variant genitalia unless your character comes prepackaged with those. No giant cocks - again, unless your character is already packing - or self-lubricating assholes or anal wombs, and no knotting. Unless that's your thing. There's also no set in stone roles with regards to dominance and submission, and some people do not even feel the inclination towards either. Still, there are a few similarities, mainly being that the pheromones of others can put someone into heat that was not in it before and the bond between mates. In addition, some humans/human-stand-ins have created packlike dynamics in response, but this is not universal.

In this meme, it's just regular old human...oids feeling the urge for sex. And by "urge," we of course mean all-consuming drive. If characters choose to ignore that urge, it will backfire on them. The more they put it off, the more they will lose their control, becoming more irritable and aggressive, and eventually be nothing but a rutting animal until the need to mate is satisfied. Not all heats call for mating, of course, and most people can just relieve themselves, but when you do mate, you feel the urge to stay by their side and essentially "nest." These desires don't always pan out into offspring, and mating isn't forever unless it's mutually decided upon. However, impregnating your mate is said to be one of the most euphoric experiences a person can have, even if some people only mate because they want to utterly possess someone, as mates are bonded for a while.

If there's anything that's to your fancy that's been left out, go ahead and add it in. Play it how you'd like!

HOW TO PLAY

  • Comment with your character and preferences.

  • Include what you're interested and not interested in.

  • Respond to others!



PROMPTS

  1. first heat: Baby's first heat. YOU'RE A TEENAGER/LATE BLOOMER AND WHAT IS THIS?

  2. old hand: You've done this a million times, but it never gets any easier.

  3. happen to be here: You're not picky. You can't afford to be. You'll take anybody who's nearby.

  4. old faithful: You're going to the person you always go to in order to relieve your problem.

  5. worked something out: The two of you aren't involved. You just help each other out.

  6. unexpected: You never expected to rut with this person, but here you are.

  7. forbidden: AKA the obligatory incest or age difference option.

  8. volunteer: You've offered yourself up out of the kindness of your heart.

  9. tribute: This isn't your offer. You're the offer from others, a gift for someone powerful to sate their appetite.

  10. mating: You've decided to go one step further and make your relationship deeper.

  11. nesting: Aaah, (temporary) domestic bliss. And lots of fucking. Lots and lots of fucking. Like, you'll barely be able to stand.

  12. bonding: The bond, which is mildly psychic and intensely physical, makes sex even more intense.

  13. the natural conclusion: Heat calls for pregnancy. Get someone pregnant.

  14. already pregnant: Unfortunately, being knocked up doesn't abate your partner's desires. Or yours.

  15. mates for life: Now you're absolutely certain that you want to be with no one else. Of course, this means you'll be in synch with their heat for the rest of forever.

  16. save you: You've been saved from the advances of an undesired mate by someone who may be much more suited. Show your gratitude?

  17. cockfight: Two people want the same mate. That won't do. There are ways to figure that out, not always involving fists.

  18. increase in dominance: Exactly what it says.

  19. increase in submission: Again, exactly what it says.

  20. unexpected dominance: No one expects you to ever be dominant. Prove them wrong.

  21. protect: You want to protect your mate from others, and that means putting your scent all over them.

  22. set off by someone else: You were doing fine until you got a whiff of someone else's pheromones.

  23. resisting temptation: Your heart belongs to someone. You want to stay out of this "heat" thing. You want to rise above it. Whatever it may be, you just have to not take the bait. Easier said than done.

  24. all worked up: You're beginning to lose control and yourself. Quick, do something before you're jumping anything that moves.

  25. pack: As mentioned prior, some people, especially those far out from civilization proper, have formed packs that hold to the more traditional alpha structure. Of course, these packs come with their own rules when it comes to heat and mating.

  26. suitable partner: The desire for certain mates can come from a subconscious level, and you can find yourself aroused by someone showing how strong they are (they can protect you), how curvaceous they look (that must mean they're fertile), or any other number of traits that can benefit you.

  27. desperation: You'll take anyone! Anything!

  28. final release: You've reached your breaking point and your mindless. At least you'll get relief.

  29. fighter: Part of your process is seeing who's worthy of you by testing their mettle. That, or you want to fight anything.

  30. off your meds: It's fairly rare, but some can get blockers for their heat. What if those blockers run out? Why, it makes your heat ten times worse!

  31. noncon: They don't want this. You don't want to stop this.

  32. dubcon: You say no, but your body says yes and you can't stop loving it.

  33. calm you down: Whether it's to fuck or to fight, you're going mad, and they have to bring you back down to Earth.

  34. territorial: How dare someone look at what belongs to you? You'll have to make things right.

  35. odd man out: For some reason, you don't go into heat. Never have. Being with you is pretty relaxing, and some find it appealing to not have to deal with pheromones that aren't theirs. You do have to learn how to appreciate their problems, though.

At this rate, Frank honestly just wants to see how long Danny can keep this up. At first, the slow trickle of pheromones into the air was subtle enough for Frank to ignore and continue on with his work, but the scent eventually grew stronger and the hairs on his arms raised with each inhale, and it didn't take a genius to figure out why. He's seen Danny meditate before and has spent hours in his presence while doing so, and today is just not going well for the blond. The fidgeting is even distracting to Frank, enough that he's had to change rooms twice now just to get some work done, but even from the next room over his skin erupts with goosebumps. It takes everything in him to not just yell at Danny to deal with it already. That's not Frank's call.

It's uncomfortable from his end but nothing compared to what torture Danny's forcing himself into right now,. Frank isn't in a rut, he's been over his a couple weeks ago already, but when the person he's partnered with is getting into that heated state it becomes clear fast. There's no way Danny will learn how to deal with it if he doesn't do it himself though.

So Frank does his best to go about his day, eventually returning to the room the other is meditating (and failing) in, just opting to sit nearby with his computer in his lap. Not fifteen minutes pass before he speaks up:

"So," he starts without much warning, breaking the hours-long silence. "Even I know you're not doing that shit right."

[personal profile] dannyrand 2017-03-19 09:21 pm (UTC)(link)
"I'm doing it right, it's just not working like it usually does." Danny murmurs under his breath with a soft exhale of frustration, it's easier to keep his eyes closed, attempting to mute his own senses. He hates these cycles, how sometimes they're brief and easy to just focus past or work through.

And other times, like this, when he's hyper-aware of everything; the world's too bright, and there are too many scents or sounds and he can feel his own blood rushing beneath his skin. He itches and aches, worse because he knows how to alleviate it. He just hates it. The loss of control, how much he wants and needs when he should be stronger than that-- push past it, control his own body and urges.

He can feel Frank looking at him and it leaves a sensation crawling over his skin, that combined with a bead of sweat rolling down his spine makes him shiver, eyes snapping open.

"Why are you still here anyway?" He doesn't mean to snap, and his tone surprise even him, eyes suddenly wide like he has no idea where it even came from. He touches a hand to his mouth like it betrayed him. "Shit-- Frank, sorry. I'm just--" Agitated, among other things.

"That was mean, you're always welcome here." He speaks a little too quickly.

[personal profile] thegoodbad 2017-03-19 09:57 pm (UTC)(link)
The small outburst is definitely surprising but amusing enough for Frank not to take it too seriously. Obviously he is frustrated over his body right now. Frank's been there too. It's harder when you're young and think you can beat down anything the world throws your way, heats be damned.

So, instead of retaliating, Frank just chuckles and shuts the laptop, tilting his head back against the couch. "Here I was trying to be a nice guy and offer to help you. I could just leave."
dannyrand: (n15)

[personal profile] dannyrand 2017-03-19 10:16 pm (UTC)(link)
"You're kinda not helping." This time it's a half-hearted glare, because the only person he's frustrated with is himself. As if having Frank wandering around his place in lounge pants and what he's pretty sure is one of his t-shirts because it's awful tight across his chest and arms.

That glare ends up a stare, heat spreading up the back of his necks and leaving his ears bright red. He licks his lips and turns his head back, throat bobbing in a hard swallow.

"I'll never learn to control it if you keep indulging me every time this happens." Well maybe not everytime, and Danny's guilty of seeking out Frank on more than one occasion.

He takes a breath, then another, the final one in deep and out slowly. Ugh why does he always smell so good?
thegoodbad: (neutral ☠ why is this attractive wtf)

[personal profile] thegoodbad 2017-03-19 10:45 pm (UTC)(link)
The borrowed t-shirt is most definitely stretched out now but his own clothes were... messy when he stopped by, and it's a quiet acceptance between them that they can use one another's places for post-battle showers and clothing any time. Danny just happens to fit better in Frank's clothes.

"Why control it when you have a means to take care of it? We're alone. This isn't in public." But, of course, Frank isn't going to force anything on him. If Danny wants to resist he truly will leave.

Leaning forward, he puts his computer on a nearby table and then stands up, keeping a short distance between them. "I really will go if you're serious."
dannyrand: (pic#10238346)

[personal profile] dannyrand 2017-03-19 11:05 pm (UTC)(link)
Danny really doesn't mind Frank borrowing any of the clothing he can manage to fit in, though it does mean he's always leaving his scent behind.

He presses his tongue against the back of his teeth, cracking his eyes open again, then tilting his head back to look up at him. "I'm supposed to have better self control than this, I can't... just let my primal urges take the wheel whenever they want." It's still a little hard for him to accept that this sort of thing is the norm here, hardly shameful.

He should be happy to have someone that knows how to take care of his needs when ever he finds himself overwhelmed by it. It probably makes him look like an idiot, doing this to himself.

"No, I don't want you to go." This time his words are softer, honest.

"I could use the temptation." Maybe if he makes the challange harder, he can overcome it faster. Danny Logic.

[personal profile] thegoodbad 2017-03-19 11:30 pm (UTC)(link)
Frank isn't completely unaffected by this either, he just has more experience with ignoring the urges, though it has admittedly been a long time since they've come off this strong. Still, for a man like Danny he knows what the importance of maintaining control is, and this is one thing that tests that to its limit. Frank can respect that. He is, however, also started to feel physically agitated over his partner's inability to contain himself, not that it's Danny's fault.

"I kinda like it when you snap, anyway. You always seem too happy-go-lucky." It's partly a tease, partly the truth, and while it's tempting to reach out and ruffle Danny's hair or something to that effect, Frank keeps his hands to himself. "Good to know you're still human under all the meditation and bullshit."

[personal profile] dannyrand 2017-03-19 11:55 pm (UTC)(link)
Danny shifts, pressing his palms to the rug beneath him to push himself up just enough to untangle his legs where they're folded beneath him so he can resettle on his knees, sitting back on his heels instead.

"I would think the happy makes me a better human than... than when I lose it." His gaze follows Frank and he inclines his head towards the spot in front of him. He has a lot of emotion, people would be surprised to know that, even while animated, he only shows a fraction of it most of the time.

"Take that off and come sit down." He rubs his hands on his knees, palms sweating.
thegoodbad: (angst ☠ shaded)

[personal profile] thegoodbad 2017-03-20 01:08 am (UTC)(link)
"Not better or worse. Just makes you human." Happy or angry or anything in between, the range of emotions is better than none at all. Frank has his moments but he tends to linger on one side of the spectrum more often than not.

At Danny's suggestion Frank hesitates a bit before following through, assuming he means take off the shirt - which he does - before kneeling in front of his partner. Frank's never really been into the meditative thing, he doesn't have the same kind of control Danny does, but he'll indulge him this time around. Besides, he's starting to feel too warm beneath his skin too, the flush on his cheeks and down his neck clearer now that he's shirtless.

"You're doing fine, Kid," he reassures, one brow rising at the sight of him now. "Even if you're a little crazy for it."
dannyrand: (Default)

[personal profile] dannyrand 2017-03-20 01:45 am (UTC)(link)
Danny laughs a little, though it sounds a little more strained than usual. He inhales, and exhales again.

"I'm not doing fine. All I can think about is how good you smell and how warm I know your skin is and how much I want to hold you down and fuck you senseless." He takes another breath, and illusion of calm, fingers twitching slightly were they rest against his knees. Voice steady, because he's trying.

"Or bend over and let you fuck me until I can't move tomorrow." His mouth twitches in a faint smile, and he doesn't usually talk like this, but Frank responds better when things are a little harsh around the edges. And really, he isn't trying to tease or goad him, but his scent changes when he's aroused and Danny wants to add to the challange.

[personal profile] thegoodbad 2017-03-20 02:48 am (UTC)(link)
He sits with crossed legs and keeps as relaxed as he can but it's difficult when Danny is so clearly trying to get a rise out of him, whether outright or not. The words are enough for the flush and heat to spread to his ears and between his legs, one deep breath of his own doing nothing but making his body crave more. Shit, he isn't even in a rut right now.

"Are you trying to torture yourself even more?" His words come out rougher than intended and he has to clear his throat, also closing his eyes to not stare at the man in front of him. "Because if you are, you're doing a good fucking job."
dannyrand: (Default)

[personal profile] dannyrand 2017-03-20 03:04 am (UTC)(link)
"That's exactly what I'm doing. Overcoming weakness with temptation." He doesn't close his eyes or look away, he wouldn't have asked Frank to join him if he'd planned to ignore him. Instead he sat and watched the slow process of Frank peeling the soft fabric from his skin. Takes the time to note every inch of the man bared before him, letting the affection and lust and desire fill him before he tries to burn it out with a calming breath.

It doesn't work as well has he'd hoped.

He sinks his teeth into his lower lip, breathing sharply through his nose. "Tell me more about this cycle... What's the difference between parternerig and mating?" he'd been trying to read up at least.
thegoodbad: (angry ☠ yall gon make me lose my mind)

[personal profile] thegoodbad 2017-03-20 03:31 am (UTC)(link)
It is still strange to consider how Danny was born in this world and grew up here yet didn't experience this sort of cycle that is so normal to the rest of the world, until coming back. It must have felt like an intense puberty all over again yet this time starting in his twenties. Frank can be thankful Danny at least didn't run into the wrong people at the right time during his first big rut. Then again, if Frank hadn't been the one to help him, he also wouldn't feel tied to the young man's well being as strongly.

The question is a good distraction for now and Frank focuses on his words instead of the growing heat all along his body, more intense now that they're talking and acknowledging what Danny's been trying to suppress all day. If Frank doesn't at least jack off in the shower later it'll be a miracle.

"It's... the bond, I guess. Mating is meant to be for life. Partnering isn't as intense." And he would know, but Danny's already aware of that part of Frank's life story. "It's not just the way your body feels. Even outside of sexual instincts it's... mental and emotional. I used to think it was bullshit until I had it."

There's a distinct pause there and Frank opens his eyes on a frown, staring at the patch of floor by Danny's right knee. "Partners are convenient help. People who you can rely on and trust. It's not a permanent solution unless you want it to be."

[personal profile] dannyrand 2017-03-20 03:46 am (UTC)(link)
He'd known about it, in theory, just like any 9 year old knew about the birds and the bees, with a distant but growing interest. But K'un Lun hadn't been like that, his peers either didn't feel the rut or didn't respond to it. Maybe it was their upbringing, or their training. Something that had been phased out of their society.

His first time had been rough, if only because he hadn't known what was happening to him.

And

And, he doesn't mean to ask, because he should probably know but... Frank was the first person he'd been with in a rut, and the only person he allowed to help him through them.

"Which one are we?" It isn't a hopeful or emotional thing, he truely just wants to know. Because everything feels intense with Frank, if they'd bonded or not.

[personal profile] thegoodbad 2017-03-20 04:01 am (UTC)(link)
Well, shit. That takes him by surprise and Frank doesn't know how to reply at first, if he even can. It's a good question though and one Danny deserves to understand. Frank's still figuring this out with him, honestly.

"I... don't think we've mated yet. Not completely." But they've gotten pretty damn close by accident. Frank's urge to protect grows stronger when they're together, as does his need for affection. Anyone who's met Frank Castle knows that is strange. He does not share his affection freely.

Shifting in place, he runs a hand through his hair and sighs, slouching where he sits. His gaze then finally meets Danny's. "Do you want to be mated with someone?"
dannyrand: (pic#10238203)

[personal profile] dannyrand 2017-03-20 11:39 am (UTC)(link)
He holds his gaze, head tilting with a slight motion as he worries his lower lip between his teeth for a moment as he rolls the question over in his mind.

"I don't know, will it make this easier?" His voice tightens with discomfort and he breathes through it, closing his eyes tight for a moment. That wasn't the right question to ask, he knows.

"Would it get to be you?" Danny opens his eyes again when he speaks, barely resisting the urge to crawl over and climb into Frank's lap.
thegoodbad: (Default)

[personal profile] thegoodbad 2017-03-20 03:01 pm (UTC)(link)
That is more of a loaded question than either of them want to deal with, naturally, but a fair one. After the amount of times they have both helped one another it makes sense to secure that bond, especially since they're also... friends, comrades, and definitely partners. It's hard to accept the fact that Frank could mate with someone again and it would be OK. Danny is a good person but Frank worries he'd regret mating with a man like him when he's still so young and naive about the process.

"I won't lie: yeah, it makes this easier and not as intense for you each cycle." Frank pauses to shift in place again and clench fists at his knees. The heat in Danny's gaze alone is so tempting. "But... it's not something to choose lightly. It could be me but... do you really want that? You're still young and successful. Lots of people would be happy to be with you."
dannyrand: (pic#10182776)

[personal profile] dannyrand 2017-03-20 03:48 pm (UTC)(link)
"That's part of the problem too, I think, lots of people would happily be with me." He's had plenty of pursuers, people attracted to his status and wealth, wanting to take advantage of how naive he seems, how kind he is. Thankfully for him is isn't nearly as submissive as he appears.

"It's not a light choice, I've been thinking about it for awhile." He pushes his hand back through his hair, giving it a hard enough tug to help distract himself, but he refuses to look away from Frank. This is important, he needs to focus.

"But I like you, and you like me and this works, right? I mean, we don't always agree but we don't have to. I feel good with you, not just the... the. " He tries for a gesture. He means to say the mindless rut induced fucking.

"All the time." Though especially right now, and despite how well he's controlling himself, his body is clearly reacting to Frank's proximity. "So yeah, I want that."
thegoodbad: (neutral ☠ tactical van time)

[personal profile] thegoodbad 2017-03-20 04:39 pm (UTC)(link)
Frank was afraid of that though it makes sense to say yes. While Frank is fine taking suppressants for the rest of his life the heady arousal on the peak of rut cycles still affects him and he still wants some relief, even if he's stuck with his own hand. Having a partner is much, much nicer.

The pleasant tightness in his gut spreads more heat through him and Frank scoots in a bit closer, the distance between them a few inches smaller. Danny's rut is making him smell so fucking good. There's already a small tent in his lounge pants.

"If we do this, I won't like it if you go to other people. When I have a mate, they're mine." The low rumble in his voice suggests he won't accept anyone trying to steal Danny away. "I tend to get... protective."
dannyrand: (n20)

[personal profile] dannyrand 2017-03-20 05:06 pm (UTC)(link)
"I don't want anyone else." Danny isn't exactly promiscuous, affectionate, yes, and sometimes that leads to sex, but he's not the sort to stray. He's never looking, and maybe, yes, they're are people he's specially fond of, ones he loves. But they're either bonded with someone else or otherwise unavailable.

Frank though, has always been good to him, if not necessarily for him, but they both come with their own bag of issues. He's always taken care of him.

Danny doesn't quite realize he's moved until he's nearly in Frank's lap, hands running up over his shoulders to cradle his face between warm palms. He wants to be soft for a moment, calm, but his pulse is already spiking and he knows that what he has left of his control is frayed beyond repair. It leaves him shaking, hurting, but he knows that his partner can make it better. "I want to."
thegoodbad: <user name="idec"> (amazed ☠ looks like he's about to kiss)

[personal profile] thegoodbad 2017-03-20 05:21 pm (UTC)(link)
Danny comes closer, touches him, and it's like his body bursts into flames from that contact alone. The goosebumps along his arms return and the hairs on the back of his neck stand up, and Frank knows if they were mated this would be so, so soothing. Right now it's just like he's desperate and can't control himself... and Frank knows it's so much worse for Danny.

"You're positive?" He asks quietly because he needs to be certain, needs the confirmation, because this is a big deal. Hands reach up to run along Danny's sides, tracing over muscle and ribs. "Because I sure as fuck want you."
