I wish this site was user-friendly but as i've been reading here for a year now, it's user-friendly to premium users only.

There's also no way to sort search results being a free user.

In any case, Can someone give me a list of stories that are in the category of wish-fulfillment?

I've read alot of stories here, whenever i want a random story to read i simply go tag searching and hope for the best.(this would consume a whole day to find 1 or 2 decent ones for me).

There's a site for do-over or time travel, is there one for wish fulfillment?

I want to read one once every few months. I guess it is this month.

There is no tag for "wish-fulfillment", but you can always go browsing and hunting via http://storiesonline.net/stories/bytag/
if you cannot or do not want to pay for the premium services.

I've read tons of random stories via tag search but since yesterday i just have this urge to read some good wishfulfillment stories. I guess it's time, then again, last time i read one was early last year.

Do you know any stories that comes close to wishfulfillment?

That was my purpose posting here, hoping someone would suggest stories.

I want to keep it as vague as possible, only 'wish-fulfillment' no other specific tags.

Back in time do over? Moved to another place/time to start again? Genie stories? Magic? Fantasy? Coming of age?

Anything so long as it doesnt involve mind control.

Do overs are wish-fulfillment but i've probably read all of em.

I'd classify g_younger's story as wish-fulfillment also. Dman i'd also say would be wish-fulfullment. etc.

Magi's story, pete a young man's story, idk if i should read this, is it now active?

Not exactly. For free members it's just a demo that give you only 10 stories and no sorting.

The site has to make something worthwhile to premier members. I've been told by Lazeez that fewer than 1% of users actually pay, so the held-back features aren't that crucial to the long term enjoyment of the site.

I can only imagine Lazeez biting his tongue when somebody complains about something about the site or asking for help to circumvent the restrictions on premier features.

I personally believe over 50% of the stories on this website can be considered "wish fulfillment" in that they are based on what the authors would like to see happen in a given situation.

Check the reviews of stories to find stories/authors who appeal to you and start reading.

How about characters with 12" dicks, GG breasts, or dozens of adoring girlfriends? Then there are stories where the author doesn't understand basic English structure. It's "wish-fulfillment" if anyone reads it to completion.

He put off writing the final book because he's now so involved in putting stupid naked daily photos on his website (instead of writing). However, the new story is more a disappointment than satisfying his many fans. It's unfolding SO slowly, new chapters only appearing intermittently. It's clear he doesn't have the time or inclination to ever finish the series.

I loved the first two books, but gave up mid-way through the third (though I still enjoy his "daily pictures"). So maybe his giving up writing isn't a complete loss, just like when a great singer begins crafting woolen coozies. ::( (if anyone is unfamiliar with that symbol, it specifies 'rolling your eyes')

No, as I intimated, I've always admired his writing, but I'm frustrated that he's replaced his writing with website maintenance. It's like all the authors who start blogging about writing, and never write anything serious again. It's a distraction, rather than the dedication of writing. Still, I appreciate his website (whenever I still visit it), but I miss when he was writing full time.

The world needs more serious writers and fewer bloggers (though Nick doesn't qualify as a blogger).

I just find it odd that you go on about him so often, yet there are hundreds (maybe as many as a thousand?) other authors on this site that have incomplete or inactive stories.
Nick is still posting (albeit very slowly), yet there are all of those authors here that don't even do that.

That's a valid observation. I guess his getting sidetracked just bothers me more, especially considering the reason why. I find it frustrating when authors get sidetracked feeding a hungry website/blog market which doesn't actually pay them anything. I see it as a pointless distraction which merely feeds the ego (but then again, isn't that all that writing is?).

If the writing is purely for the high votes & "You're the greatest writer ever" feedback it is.
If you're writing because you've got a story to tell, and it's nice that others appreciate what you've written it isn't.

I find it frustrating when authors get sidetracked feeding a hungry website/blog market which doesn't actually pay them anything.

Have you actually read any of the posts he's made on his site or twitter over the years?
You get all worked up over blogging or supporting a web site taking up writing time- yet the fact is that neither of those things would take up much time at all (at least not Nick Scipio's).
He changed jobs, went back to college, started another job. Just like many of the other writers here- circumstances change.
Why not heap shit on Al Steiner for not finishing off the Intemperance series? Or cmsix for not finishing off all of his stories? Or Colt45 for not finishing off his series? They've all had either health issues, changes in jobs or going back to college full time, yet you don't denigrate them for their lack of writing. Just Nick Scipio, even though he is still writing, and the other aren't.

Duh!

I hadn't kept up on his blogging, so I wasn't aware of those details, which sound impressive. Certainly more than I've done lately. I guess I was targeting him for what others on the web have been doing, assuming he fits into that category, without fully researching it.

(As an aside, cmsix can hardly blame health issues, as he rarely finished anything before then. He's got a history of unfinished stories, which I've commented on before. But in that case, I've blamed it on what I perceive as his inability to satisfactorily end a story he's never managed to get right.)

In Nick's case, given the new info., I'll amend my objection. He simply shouldn't have started the newest book, or at least not started posting it online, until he had the time to properly finish it. Many of us start projects knowing our writing will have to wait, but expecting readers to wait years until we finish is expected a lot. I, and many others here, prefer finishing a story before posting. If you have the time, it's not as bad, since you know you're likely to post on a regular basis.

However, I was clearly unfairly targeting Nick. Although I used to visit his site fairly often (mainly to check out his daily photos), I haven't visited much since giving up on series.

Any suggestions guys?

I know 'wish-fullfilment' is such a vague tag that it could actually amount to almost all stories here.

But i'm only asking for good ones that are long. That has got to filter tons of others.

I'd give an example,

Dman, stupid boy, pete a young man's story. etc. etc.

I'm hoping someone here will suggest me something i haven't read.

The problem you face Jhncanson is that you apparently have no preference as to type of genre you want to read. You say you are willing to read anything that is "good" and "long", but those are subjective terms.

I and others have suggested where you can find stories that will suit your reading preferences. If you had followed the suggestions provided to you and put in a little bit of effort, you would have found enough reading material to keep you happy for years.

As i've said, i read almost all stories i can find via free search.

Any story i can find that is still 'new' to me would take me atleast 2 hours if i really went at it.

That's why im looking for suggestions in the vein of wish-fulfillment stories.

I'm also not familiar with authors here so i woudln't know which author specializes in which genre.

I'm neck deep in tag searching and there are simply so many tags.

If there was a way to sort search results as a free member then itd make my life easier but that's wishful thinking on my part.

Because you are asking for the impossible.

You come up with an exceedingly vague request that's impossible to do a simple search for even with a premier membership, expecting those few of us who actually fund this site to do all the hard work for you.

Then you have the gall to complain and come up with more equally vague nonsense requirements when asked to be more specific.

Crumbly Writer

@jhncanson

One alternate method, is to find other stories which fit your search category, and then check which other stories are "recommended" afterwards (i.e. let SOL make the search for you, rather than you're being restricted from doing your own). Since the recommendation is based upon the story tags, it should turn up similar stories without turning up a bunch of other genres.

Face it, Jhncanson. "Wish fulfillment" covers about 80% of the SOL stories, whether it's fulfilling the wishes of the characters, the author or the readers. Without supplying any limits (like genre), all we can do is point to the "39,652 stories" sign on the SOL home page.

In a way, yea.

At first i thought wish-fulfillment shouldve been a tag of its own.

Then again, stories are fiction and are written by authors so therefore they'd be molded according to the author's wishes so in a way every story is a wish-fulfillment.

The question is, how much of it is wish-fulfillment.

There are stories that are purely wish-fulfillment, there are some that are wish-fulfillment as a byproduct of plot.

That reminds me, i have yet to read your stories. That gives me stories to look forward. It will probably last me 2-4 months of reading material.(hopefully i don't read all of it less than that)

Since you apparently need detailed guidance, do the following:

1. Go to your Home page.

2. In the bar at the top of the screen, click the Reviews button.

3. When the listing of reviews appears, look at the story titles until something appeals to you.

4. Click the story's title. A description of the story and all of its reviews will appear.

5. If it seems appealing, go read the story and make note of the author. At the end of the story, click the feedback button and let the author know what you thought of his story. Authors like feedback. Then if you liked the story, go to the author's page and try reading his other stories.

That should give you adequate reading material to keep you busy for several years.

I was trying to be conservative when I said over 50%. In some ways, it is closer to 100%.

I don't know how many times I have written about this!!!!!!

Wish-fulfilment is not a recognised genre even for Premium readers but you will find 36 in total in the short story introductions.
Alternatively if you can work out the SOL category then go to Google (with or without the capital G ;-) ) and simply type in
category site:storiesonline.net

where Wish-fulfillment is the category (don't forget the following space before "site") Try it again without the capital letter though I doubt if it will change.

I wouldn't list my stories as wish-fulfillment. I'm a fan of the heroic-tragedy, where someone only succeeds by sacrificing themselves. Generally, for every advance, the protagonist loses something, while gaining something else (two steps forward and one step back).

Only certain stories really qualify as wish-fulfillment. Time travel are classics in that regard, as it's the desire by both the author and the protagonist to redo their lives so they can do a better job than they did the first time. Likewise, many of the porn stories here are authors (and readers) wishing they could experience what the protagonists do. To a lesser extent, virtually any happy ending is wish fulfillment, as readers wish that live accomplished things, rather than living a constant struggle where the conflict merely shifts from one thing to another.

Still, better crafted fiction deals with bigger issues than "I wish I could do that". They instead try to say something, and convey specific object lessons (like mine, which convey you don't succeed without paying the price for your success).

What is your definition of the category 'wish-fulfillment'? Do you mean it literally in the sense of a genie from a magic lantern awarding three wishes? Do you mean it in the sense of a Mary Sue story where the author inserts a thinly disguised version of themselves although with some degree of idealisation, such as a superpower or ten? Or do you mean something else?

You should seriously consider writing the stories yourself. You'll then have stories that you want to read, and you can earn Premier Membership. There are plenty of folks here prepared to help you with suggestions and proofreading.

Wow. Thank goodness I am not jhncanson. He seemed not to understand the first reply (which looked straightforward to me even though I have an IQ rapidly approaching two) and enough people have given him just about every possible suggestion and route to try.
Hopefully a woodworm hole will miraculously appear and wishes will be fulfilled as he slides into it

"A Stitch In Time" by Marsh Alien is an excellent, heart-warming story and is literally wish fufilment.

"A Fresh Start" by rlfj is a very long but excellent do-over story that starts with a wish.

If you do a basic story title search for "genie" you will find many stories based on that topic. Doing the same for "wish" will return many stories as well.
