Best dark romance

Best dark romance
Stories with twisted, abusive characters and romance that can definitely not be considered healthy, but may be oddly endearing in their own way. The kind of I-can't-live-without-you-but-I-won't-hesitate-to-hurt-you-to-win-you. Dogblood and yandere characters, either one of both characters are twisted and/or somewhat crazy. HE and sometimes a development towards a more wholesome relationship by the end. Quality writing., mostly danmei but some are BG romance or ABO.
