Something that i enjoy is to read a good piece of fiction especially if its about BL
but its hard to keep my interest if the story wasn’t outstanding.
some story have great start but lost its charm on the middle and i lost interest
However these stories how keep me going and i just could put it down once i read it.
here are my recent recommendation
TILL DEATH DO US PART by Tangstory
this really beautiful literature set in the background of 1937 (2nd sino-japanese war)
are set to be next BL movie project of Chenpeng (director of Like Love), i should warn that its is a very erotic love story like most danmei but still for me very poetic and enchanting despite being sexually graphic.
After reading the novel i’m really looking forward for that live action version, altho i think the cast should have been more mature looking but since they are such eye candies i dont mind
How ever since one of the character has beautiful mole under his eyes i cant help to imagine QingYu when i read the story :p
update: scratch some info about the live action , i was mistaken these live action stills below is based on another novel that happen to have similarities (explanation on comment), i’ll get more info about the novel
He stared, transfixed, at Ch’in Ching standing in the storm waiting for him.
A deep-seated sense of fulfillment blossomed in his heart,
With the haziness of what the French would call déjà vu
– A man holding an umbrella.
The wet ends of his ch’angshan.
The rainy music from an old dream.
Summary by the translator:
Set in early-20th century China, this story takes off in the port city of Tientsin (Tianjin) that is divided into lands called concessions and owned by several foreign powers. Shen Liangsheng is a charismatic and cunning playboy, a son of a rich businessman, who has profits as his top priority. He meets Ch’in Ching, an average school teacher who appears mild but actually holds a patriotic heart for his home. The two cross paths and sparks fly. But will their love hold strong through the imminent forces that will tear the country apart…?

LOVE LATE by Lan Lin
I loveeee the main character Lee Moyan, he is so outrageous and so flawed so prideful yet so vulnerable that you cant help but to adore him , after reading you would agree with me on that. To describe Lee Moyan looks like a character that Fumi Yoshinaga sensei (Antique Bakery, Mangaka) would write.
This danmei novel character is closely related with Uncontrollable Love (Force Majeur) and Round Trip To Love which the Live Action are out this year
i’ve finish reading until vol 2 chapter 18 in one go and i am really anticipating for the translation update
Lee Mo Yan, known as “Lee”, an elite of the legal world who is approaching his forties, had worked hard to pave the way to get to where he was. However, all that he worked for vanished into thin air when a political scandal broke out involving a politician he backed and when his lover dumped him. Finding himself in a worrisome situation, Lee received an unexpected invitation from an upperclassman from his past.
Upon returning to T City to become an office worker after living in Los Angeles, he encountered Ke Luo, the boy who had left him without saying farewell. Pretending it was nothing, he continued to live frivolously. That is, until he fell apart after realizing that he was a substitute for someone else…
Could this sadness be love arriving a little too late?

SAVE MY DAY by Sallyscissor
My friend Rae recommend this story, because the characters reminds her about Qingge & Dayu . I do agree with her it does resembles QingYu in different circumtances. Damon Jaobs and Topher Ashton are actors , best friends, lots of people ‘ship’ them and they just fall in love.
Nevertheless the story are very cute and i hope QingYu would have their courage and happy ending some day.
Damon Jacobs is new to the Hollywood scene. His bad boy attitude and sexy British accent make this up-and-comer someone to watch out for.
Topher Ashton has been a Hollywood Heartthrob since he was a teenager. He’s the one all the girls want and all the guys strive to be. Even with a miserable past; Topher is the envy of all.
It’s the premiere of one of Hollywood’s newest blockbusters. Costars – and best friends – Topher and Damon are set to be the newest ‘It-boys’ when ‘Save The Day’ their new superhero comedy hits the box office. Will one drunken after-party change everything? And more importantly, will they lose a great friendship or will everything work out ‘for better or for worse’?

PLEVOIR by Della Nova
My last recommendation unfortunate are only avalaible in Indonesian Bahasa , no english version available. The author Della some of might know her on instagram qingyu2zhou as a fellow devoted qingyu and yuzhou shipper.
This novel hers actually published as a book on 2009 despite the restriction on releasing lgbt content it manage to reach book stores after some editing. The author decide to release the uncensored version on her blog and will start to reprint the preedited version independently soon.
Yussa is a dull man with an average life never straying from the ordinary. The life revolve around his job, hanging out with his group of best buddies, and catering his high class girlfriend. He had a dream but already forgot all about it. One day her girlfriend introduce him to her friend Calvin a boutique owner an fashion designer. Calvin is a poise and sophisticated gentleman poles apart from himself. Yussa would have never guess that he’ll be so drawn to Calvin perhaps because he is very different than his other macho friend or that there so much more to him than his beautiful appearance, with Calvin he feels at ease and he learn to dream again.
I really love the story and would love to buy the reprint if she open the PO, we lucky indonesion can read the 5 chapter preview here> November113.webnode.com
update : further info from the author he advised to not buy the 1st reprint because it have been cut A LOT (about 50% of the story) and please patiently wait for the unedited version PO
