The Yuri Garden's Writing Competition (2019) is now open! Find out more here: https://forum.novelupdates.com/posts/4964682/ A place to discuss yuri and all things f/f~! This is the yuri counterpart to the Danmei Room. Here, you can discuss your favourite yuri works, talk about your own, search out more yuri, or simply bask in the glory of women loving women~! Note: Although this is the Yuri Garden and I use the term "yuri" for simplicity, all women x women media is welcome here, regardless of what subdivision it belongs to. The Yuri Garden also includes yuri genderbender and yuri futanari (futanari x futanari and futanari x woman). Yuri involving trans women is very much welcome here! Rules: Spoiler 1. No hijacking the thread. We're here to share our love of yuri. That means this isn't a place to start the "Yuri vs Yaoi" debate, share your opinions on how much "purer" f/f is than m/m, or even vent your hatred of yuri. Stay pleasant, stay present, stay on topic. 2. No homophobia. It's very counterproductive here. 3. No transphobia. It feels like every time women are mentioned on this forum, the thread degenerates into this. Don't throw around slurs and, if you're going to discuss crossdressers for some reason, please ensure that the person you're discussing is in fact a crossdresser. Helpful Links: Every piece of GL media that has been mentioned in the Yuri Garden is listed in The Yuri Garden's Recommendation Directory, so it's not necessary to read the entire thread if you don't want to. You can find all of NU's GL novels listed under either one or both of these tags: Yuri and Shoujo Ai. If you're a translator who is interested in taking on a GL novel, we keep a Directory of Dropped Yuri and Yuri Pick-Up Requests. If you write or are interested in writing yuri, we have the Yuri Writing Help Room over on NUF's sister site Scribble Hub Forums, where you can ask for everything from advice on writing sex scenes to feedback on your story in general. The Yuri Garden's 2019 Survey Report can be found here. It gives some insight into the makeup of our members and their opinions. Ai-chan's explanation on the troublesome history of the term "shoujo ai" and why we should maybe stop using it can be found here.
