So I like harem and polygamy stories but there's always stuff in that type of stories I find here on SOL that leave dissatisfied after reading. Like how John Wales tend to kill off love interests. Or how Joe J's characters take lovers that they don't love and let them go when they find someone else, or even playing matchmaker themselves to set up their lovers with others. Or how FantasyLover tend to ignore almost any characterization in favor of world building. Or how Arlene & Jeff has a really unhealthy focus on side characters (and yes weddings in general, but I feel that the weddings would decrease alot if the focus stayed with the main characters).
These authors and stories are good for the most part, but they have these things that leave me dissatisfied.
Those are the biggest harem/poly authors I've found here, but others here have generally some of the above faults, or they go into polyamory.
What I'm looking for is a straight up harem or polygamy story. Where a guy is in a relationship with multiple women, with emphasis on relationship, not just having multiple women as temporary lovers and then they're off to find their true love, not having an open relationship or polyamory. Imagine a normal romance story, but have multiple women instead of just one. MC should be heartbroken if one of them leave, just as he would if she were his only one. MC should be pissed and heartbroken if one of his women sleep with an other guy, just like he would if she were his only one. Not be like, "oh well, I'm with more than one woman, fair play I guess.", fair play or not I want the MC to care about each woman in his relationship just like he would if they were in a monogamous relationship.
My favourite story that fit in best (as far as I recall anyway) is A Friend in Need by Heathen57. I'm following Three Square Meals by Teffler aswell and it's alright, but it's slow on the updates now that I'm caught up. I've already read colt45's stuff aswell. The Best of Both Worlds by Dilettante was good too.
Oh, and also, no Mind Control or purely stroke material please. I don't mind if there's alot of sex, but there should be a story there that's about more than gathering women to bang.
