High Quality BL: Recommendations and Rising Stars (QT/Modern/Futuristic Part 1 Ver.)

High Quality BL: Recommendations and Rising Stars (QT/Modern/Futuristic Part 1 Ver.)
High Quality BL (slightly more serious) reads set in modern/futuristic setting--or perhaps jumps between time through transmigration. This list is a part of a series classified by genre (because I have too many novel to fit otherwise) ; other lists of this series include Thriller/Action, Fluff, and Ancient Setting novels. I tried to include both known and unknown novels to give more diversity to the reading list. 

So what is my subjective version of a quality BL of this list?

-No/little plot holes & well developed plot

-Capable MC and ML  (not aggravatingly s*upid and knows when to respect each other but also put their foot down at the right moments). If not capable, at least not s*upid. 

-Lasting impression. I made this list by memory so if it's not on here...Chances are it's not worth remembering for the list.

 ****I have also included BL novels that have high expectations from me. The higher the expectations, the higher the stars. Hence, "***, **, *."

PS. Novels I've read are the only ones rated according to number. The rest (unread) are just listed randomly. 

PSS. There are always exceptions on this list that don't fit the requirements (most likely the unread ones). But it's not bad to explore out of your comfort zone. 

PSSS. Though not fluff, there will be some Feel Good (have more of a plot) novels here.

********This deserves all the love in the world. I adored this novel.  This novel was on my thriller/action version list and then I realized it technically encompasses both genres, so it definitely should be here (cough, this is me just trying to promote this novel wherever I can).  I highly recommend reading this. This one has such a special place in my heart and I cannot express it in words—I always feel so emotional thinking about it. Everything about it is truly just a chef’s kiss; it’s not any typical story you’ve read so far, which is why I can assure you it will have a unique place in your heart. ... more>>

My god. This one is so good guys. We have a cold and ruthless MC that covers himself up with the guise of gentleness. The ML accidentally uncovers this guise, and thus unfolds the best (slightly filled with dog blood) development. You will see everything you wished in life here. Escape games, bittersweet but eternal love, character development (from both MC and ML), etc. If I was on my dying breath, this would be one of the novels I handed to you. Well every novel I've read here is mostly like this...But this one specifically.... more>>

Edit: Best ABO novel to exist. Fight me. So many important themes woven into a light-hearted novel--it has been quite a while since I've felt inspired by a novel. A summary is a bit like A Little Mushroom summary (misleading, don't take it completely to heart because it's like the lid covering pandora's box)--the characters are so 3-dimensional and the themes and messages delivered are brilliant.... more>>

***Read a little bit of this and hot damn this is a gem (because I haven't read the whole thing I'm not putting it up really high in ratings--don't attack me). A lot better than QWTFOD in my opinion, and most likely one of the best transmigration novels on NU. ... more>>

Okay. I said capable MC. But we do have a very...naive (in the aspect of having his emotions on a sleeve) MC here at times. But I tolerated (and actually liked him??) because he knew how to stand his ground. Plus, the fact that this novel was able to make it on the list despite that is enough right? Anyway, this is a BDSM novel but it got my blood boiling *fans face* and I don't even like the genre. MTL is also really easy to understand! Just message me and I can give you the raws.... more>>

Not action but as a person who has no gaming knowledge, it was still great to see the MC play games to the top. Really a good novel for those not even interested in E-sports. It is more on the light hearted side, but a great novel nevertheless when you want to take a break.... more>>

Sure, I won't deny this novel may be overrated. And it is definitely not the best transmigration novel to exist. But this was one of my first BL novels, and it had satisfied every itch I have for a OP protagonist (clever, cunning, ruthless but still has morals), and considering I reread this novel's arcs occasionally...It deserves a spot on this list. Has flaws, but still a good read as long as you space out the arcs. Plus it satisfied some weird kinks I didn't realize I have... So all in all, if you're a newbie BL reader here on this list, I think you'll like it. If you're a more experienced one, you may... more>>

    This a big yikes ya’ll. So I’m adding stuff right? Cuz I love adding stuff to my very full novel list. The sad part about this list is that I had to actually split it from the original list so it wouldn’t get full. But my happy fingers couldn’t stop even after that event...and we have reached...TT capacity overflow. So sigh. I didn’t like doing a second list because I’m lazy but when there is no will something always seems to find a way :). My passive aggressive smiling face is off to a new journey it seems.

      Thanks! Did they take it off because it became licensed?
