    Can someone recommend me BL where there is a lot of grovelling from the gong/seme?:blobjoy: I've been reading too much angst and the uke always gets short end of the stick so I want to read something of the opposite!:blobsob:
    I also especially love when seme is the indulgent type
    Thank you!

    Hmm...I have seen groveling gongs/semes when they want to make up for their past mistakes to their ukes.
    Here are some I could remember:
    Professional Body Double
    Childish Flower
    Both of these stories feature the MC!uke falling in love first with temporarily unrequited love and lots of angst. Though I think you would be the judge if their amount of groveling is justified haha!

    No mention of who is uke/seme but i'm guessing MC is uke.
    MC is known as useless, but has secret identity as famous doctor. ML is his fiancee, but their engagement is broken. ML like doctor, but hate MC because the doctor keep praising MC. MC knows, but doesn't believe ML really loves him

    but usually ML is the one who makes MC cry. So ML abuse MC (usually by sex, but sometimes emotionally too) then beg for forgiveness, then do it again. IRL, this is a major red flag

    You'd be surprised about how many times the ML properly apologizes in BL. Apologizing with sex doesn't count (but some authors think so). Usually if a ML does something terrible or wrong, he backs it up with some excuse like "Oh it was for your own good" or gives some simple apology, and next thing you know, the MC forgives him really easily. (And then sexy times begin, because apparently authors think readers prefer sexy times over HEY-MAYBE-LET'S-HAVE-A-PROPER-CONVERSATION times).

    Sorry, I've got a lot of pent up anger about this LOL.

    The top is the one making all the chasing and the emotional part, the bottom is interested only in.... well you will see. The top is not really grovelling at the start, or at least it kinda does it but for the wrong person. As the story goes on he finds himself more and more taken by the protagonist and he finds himself always indulging him a little more
    I don’t wanna spoil but it’s far better than what I imaged, even if there is a little too much explicit stuff for my tastes
