    Don't get me wrong, I want the usual BL danmei tropes with the gong and shou but also a bit historically accurate. That means please no male wife bullshitt, it didn't happen in ancient china, it's just lazy writing where they just show that the people from history are supportive. I know that emperor's sometimes had male concubines but that's it
    Kind of like All under heaven, it's realistic and one of my favourite
    Also stabilizing the country with beauty is good

    [Mo Flower] One of my all time favorites. MC is a court official and ML is the Emperor.

    [After the Disabled God of War Became My Concubine] Title is misleading, since this is actually pretty historically accurate. MC is forced to marry ML but it’s done as a humiliation for both of them (ML is a captured war general).

    Take a look at my recent blog post, it lists the raw historical BL webnovels I've read that are set during a specific time period and feature historical figures.

    Dinghai Fusheng Records - There is magic and shit but also some historical facts in-between.
    The Governor's Illness - historical setting with real places and some real people, no magic.
