I enjoy romantic stories with a touch of sex, ie. "minimal" or "some sex" but no more. Sadly, almost all stories which meet those criteria follow the formulaic "boy meets girl, boy loses girl, boy gets girl back again". It seems that a lot of the longer stories here repeat that formula over and over again ad nauseum. Any good suggestions?

Oyster50 has a number of romantic stories with a touch of sex, and without the formula you dislike.

Read them. Every one. Those are the exact kind of story that I'm looking for. Unfortunately, Oyster50 can only write three at a time! I need something to fill in the gaps.

Try mattwatt. He has over 200 stories here. He concentrates on older couples, but 'boy' and 'girl' is often used meaning any age male / female, so it may be included in your search.

I've read several of mattwatt's stories and find them a little too "cutesy" for my taste. No one talks that way!

I agree totally, they aren't to my taste either, but it was worth a try ;)

Coaster2 has some good stories along the lines of what you are looking for

Lazlong and Don Lockwood. You have to pick and choose, but several of their stories provide a kind of plot you describe. Maybe Jennifer by zaliterr? Or maybe Opus One by Ryan Sylander?

You could also check out 'Kelly' by The Night Hawk. Not a lot of descriptive sex, but a very good Ma/Fa/Fa story, with another ft/ft couple as well.

You could try out my own 'Return to sanity' no sex, a romance, but also some violence too.

"In the Eyes of the Beholder", by MountainLaurel. It's only a short story, but it avoids the "boy meets, loses, then gets girl back", formula.

I think I wrote what you are looking for. I really tried to cut down on the typical angst, high school cliques, bullies, etc. in the series.

You've been posting tantalizing snippets of 'after Chaos' on your blog. Please tie them all together and give us one more Chaos story. I know you started, then withrew it because you didn't like it. Well, rewrite it in a way you DO LIKE and let us have that...pretty please?

Ezzy, please write anything you like and post it here, it does not need to be another Chaos story

OVERBOARD! by HandyMan, https://storiesonline.net/s/75245/overboard

A Bettered Life by Michael Lindgren, https://storiesonline.net/s/50816/a-bettered-life

Doing it all Over by Al Steiner, https://storiesonline.net/s/30059/doing-it-all-over

The Private by Random Writings (more sci-fi than romance, incomplete), https://storiesonline.net/s/69860/the-private

A Reluctant Hero by Douglas Fox, https://storiesonline.net/s/75146/a-reluctant-hero

Hunter by Lazlo Zalezac, https://storiesonline.net/s/52923/hunter

These all have romance (single pairing, no harem, etc). The first few are mainly romance focused, and the rest are mixed with sci-fi or fantasy or thriller. All of them have min. sex (or rather not overdose on it) except for Hunter by Lazlo, I think? Been over a year since I read any of these though.

Personally, I like a traditional romance subplot with thriller/sci-fi/fantasy as the main story rather than a pure porn/harem stories. I cringe when looking at the gazillion tags in some stories.

Btw, anyone know if I can get get my library notes and favorites back when I renew premium membership after a year? I heard that info gets swiped after 6 months of inactivity after premium expiration. I kinda went off radar with life and didn't renew. Should've backed up the library info but forgot.

I have your stories on backlog for a long time (but my backlong is hella long too) but forgot about it. Will read yours sometime in the future.

@red61544

"Bus Story" by ElSol for budding romance or his "Sine Equals Cosine" for something simply heart-wrenching romantic. Both are short and extremely well done.

This looks like about the longest list I've seen. And it's definitely not the only story I've seen where the list of tags is longer than the description.

I wonder if these authors write more for the plot or for the tags.

Any of the stories in Lubrican's Lost Memory series might be what you're looking for. Note that they may require Premium Membership however.

Several of those stories are knock-your-socks-off types, e.g. they're good.

Can't speak for anyone else, but all your stories have the Mind Control tag on them, which means they go straight into my "nope" bin.

I can respect that. I don't care for "rapey" MC stuff, myself. It's more like "enhanced seduction" in my stories.
