    Let's talk about novels with bl/yaoi/shounen ai theme.

    I don't know if there is one of these already in NU, but from the recent talk in @xiomei thread and @drealicious status, there doesn't seem to be one? Or maybe @Shio or @remy911 know one? If not, let's talk here ^^

    This weekend, I've just read True Star, Ti Shen, and The Rental Shop Owner. They're so good. No tear-jerking, heartbreaking drama, but the plots are so creative. *and I've just known that yaoi fiction is called danmei in chinese from The Rental Shop Owner*

    === Moderator edit ====
    For those who are wondering, Danmei is the Chinese equivalent of the Japanese term, BL, which stands for boys' love. Stories in this category feature romantic relationships between two males, which may or may not be explicit in nature.

    This thread is for fans of this "genre" or people looking to try something different. Off-topic/"hijack" posts and posts expressing hatred will not be tolerated, regardless of the intent of the poster. Let it be known that this thread is frequented by half of the moderators on this forum!

    Yay! My home thread!

    I still haven't started Ti Shen. I am always conflicted whether to start it now and wait in agony or just leave the pandora's box alone for more chapters~

    Welcome ^^
    Yes, the agony....considering the translator pace and the length of the story...it's probably better to start later, but then, if waiting till it ends, then we'll have to wait for a long time T_T
    It's rare there's yaoi sets in showbiz x underworld plot like Ti Shen :cool:

    I have a question. Is The Legendary Master's Wife hardcore Yaoi? I read around 30 chapters, and I liked the story. But I don't think I'd be able to read it if the story becomes an 18+ story. Of its lightcore I'd like to read it more.

    it's very nice ne. i like how the blonde guy tries to make the guy with black hair, his best friend, fall for him or he teases him. >//////////////<) then there's the that other guy who likes the blonde guy.
    aaaa shonen ai is rarely my cup of coffee but i read that and i liked it for bishies.

    Let's just see~

    The translator has said that it's yaoi content is so light it may disappoint those who waits for hardcore acts. I've read till latest chapter 50+ and there's not even a bit of inappropriate touching....
    Ooh, so it's a manga...hoho, thank you for the recommendation ^^ it sounds really interesting

    The one Rika believe to be exist? It doesn't exist in real life or BL in general, mostly from Rika's misunderstanding. Some pretty weird yaoi might have them, but I've never read one
