Bellamy/Octavia, also known as Blakecest, is a het and incestuous pairing of Bellamy Blake and Octavia Blake from The 100 fandom.

You know the first thing that made me think about blakecest was the fact that Octavia clearly knew how to kiss when she got to earth but she has always been locked up sooooooo

Canon

The pair are siblings, maybe half-siblings since their mother, Aurora Blake, was a single mom, and there's never any mention of a father in the picture for either of them. Due to the Ark's one-child possibility, Octavia's existence was kept secret. Aurora gave birth to Octavia in their family's quarters, with only 7-year-old Bellamy in attendance. She told him to name her, and since he'd just learned about the Roman emperor Augustus, and named his sister after the emperor's sister, Octavia.

Your sister, your responsibility.

Octavia had to be kept hidden in their room, never venturing out. Bellamy would tell her stories and play with her, telling her about the Ark. Their mother would also read them mythology, which they loved.
