    Hi
    I'm having trouble finding short BL with good plot, I don't want feel-good stories that have too many forced faceslaps or too sweet stories that only has ML and MC being lovey-dovey and sappy to each other (and misunderstandings / running away with a ball / crying and miscommunication). That said, I don't want it to be very political like an ABO novel where they fight for Omega right etc too.

    Usually I like reading MC (shou/gong ok) who has goals, job/aspiration, is smart, or the expansive world/interesting plot. Something like There is No Afterlife (but shorter and I'm okay with a bit more romance than TINA), or The Virtual Character I Personally Raised Wants to Marry Me, Earth is Online, The Fourteenth Year of Chenghua, The Trial Game of Life …. But I'm not opposed to reading romance, I just want a short (under 100) story that is not… brainless and has something that I can really like about it.

    It can be untranslated or translated :blobbunny:
