Online M/M Stories That Deserve To Be Published

Have you ever wondered after reading certain online stories why they have not been published yet? There are so many good, well-written stories out there that deserve a better acknowledgement than they already receive.

This list is different than the Favorite Unpublished M/M Stories because it should imply a certain objectivity from our part when adding titles to it. I’m aware that in the end our preferences will prevail, but please let's try to “rate”, as much as our abilities and background permit, the plot, characterization, writing style.
You may think about it as a way to encourage authors to publish these stories, indicating they are well-appreciated and worthy of a bigger audience.

Please before voting/adding to this list take notice that are allowed only completed or in progress stories with a minimum word count of 30,000. Along with the original online fiction you may add fan fiction based on existent characters in an alternate universe or real person slash stories. Is not accepted fan fiction that develops plots similar or identical to the original creations.

ARE NOT ALLOWED: stories written for the M/M Romance Group's Don't Read in the Closet events. Eventually many of them will be published, so they're not worth the effort adding them and after some time remove them from this list

Important Note: Captive Prince is now published! It was removed from this list so please don't add it again.

EDIT 2014/04/23, PLEASE READ! Are allowed only titles with at least 10 ratings on Goodreads. These stories should be good, read and rated by at least a number of people.

Jill Hornor I wish this was a list of ORIGINAL stories. Over half of these stories are fan fiction, which is fine, but not what the title of the list suggests.

Hi Jill! The title of the list does not imply only original stories. It's about online stories, being them original or fanfiction set in an alternate universe. And I agree, there are many titles which come from fanfiction, but FF is very popular so I decided to allow it as well.
As a side note, on my count, the original ones are around 70, so over half of the titles added here. If you have others in mind, please add them. Great stories, even more if original, deserve to be acknowledged.

C. Roberta :) im so hppy 4 captive prince. bt im sooo positive that when tv becomes more liberal they r going to make the company of shadows series a movie!

Sheetal Shenoy Amazing list there. i love the books and seriously thank u for putting up this list or i wudnt hav known these books <3


message 5: by SMi (new)

SMi Looks like a couple people didn't read the edit given there are few books with less then 10 Goodreads ratings. One book, Dragon Bait, has zero ratings. :-/

It happens all the time. Thanks for letting me know! There were given some notices to those voters, so now I'll wait a few days to see what they'll do.


message 7: by Aerulan (new)

Aerulan The online version of Under The Knife by Laurin Kelly has been taken down and the story has just been traditionally published.


message 8: by Sosio (new)

Sosio A lot of these books need to be removed as they are no longer available - anywhere. Most authors have closed their livejournals and straight up removed the PDFs. Some have some fairly blunt messages about how you just can't see them anymore. That's fine, it's their work after all, but they need to be taken off the list since they don't technically exist anymore.


message 9: by Da3abol (new)

Da3abol i read this story and it was amazing, its called 'the erlking of berdgis valley' and its the kind that make feel sorry when ended. it really deserve to be published.

Disagree. Such online stories could be classified as "out of print"
