Please enjoy the following
links to what I consider very well-written and poignant stories
of gay love and friendship. If you find such ideas offensive,
feel free to leave theDreamworld, but I encourage you to
to stay and try to understand.
The long-standing, definitive collection of stories involving
sex and love and every possible variation of the two. Something
Nick Archer tells great stories of love and relationships,
notably 'Paternal Instincts,' the sequel 'Family Instincts,'
the sequel to that, 'Thicker Than Water.' Nick has a few other
stories and a large number of stories by a number of other authors,
including great serialized stories by Keith Morissette and others.
New chapters have been infrequent, but Nick hasn't given up yet.
Biting, honest commentaries and stories from the most real
person I have seen on the Web. Mike's (aka Billy Bunny's) stories
are rarely added to, but it
is always fun just to keep up with Mike's Blogs and Rants. As
bonus, site layout is very cool.
This site contains Josh Aterovis' great murder mystery/gay
love stories, 'Bleeding Hearts,' its sequel 'Reap the Whirlwind,'
the follow-up 'All Lost Things,' another sequel, 'The
Truth of Yesterday,' and the latest story in the series, 'A Change
of Worlds.' The characters are well developed and the author
knows how to spin
a good mystery.
Karla Schultz spins a great continuing series about two soulmates
who find each other at a very young age and learn to face life
throughout their lives, complicated as that may be. The main story
has recently been completed, but Karla is adding "Appendices" now

Comicality is the grand-master of gay love stories. His stories
are realistic, touching, and engrossing. And WOW, is he prolific!
You could easily read for days and still not read everything.
Be sure to poke around the whole site - you might learn something.
Be sure to read 'New Kid in School,' a masterpiece of gay writing
about relationships, love, and trust. Updates tend to be infrequent,
but the wait is always worth it.
Great stories 'Wherever You Will Go' and 'Stigmatized' by
CRVBOY are only part of the great reading here. The works of
other authors, notably Brew Maxwell's interconnected 'Foley-Mashburn'
serieses and Sara Bell's two linked stories, are all upbeat tales
with a focus on caring and relationships.
Dave "daBeagle" offers a number of very different
stories: 'Life in a Northern Town,' 'Through Time,' 'Begin Anew,'
and 'A Different Class,' among others. Also read 'Turnabout'
Chris, provided here complete with all chapters, and read 'Shadow
People' and 'Searching for Christolph' by Jason Locke as well
as the 'What We Are' serieses by Richie Ryan - they rock!
daBeagle also offers stories by a few others. Updates have become
less frequent, but new stories continue to be posted.
'For the Love of Pete' and its sequel, 'Brian and Pete,' contain
incredible presentations of the emotions and reactions of its
characters that are phenomenally realistic and are very reminiscent
of my own life. A must read, updates have been spaced apart a
bit but worth waiting.
Dom Luka's stories are my greatest recent pleasure. Dom has
a number of continuing stories that he updates regularly, and
they are all terrific - well written, compelling, and eagerly
anticipated. "The Log Way," "The Ordinary Us," and "Desert Dropping"
are all some of the best gay stories on the net and well worth
adding to your bookmarks.
Drake enjoyed Dewey's 'For the Love of Pete' and 'Brian and
Pete' stories, and he was so inspired, that he decided to make
a spinoff with a couple of secondary characters. The tremendous
result is 'Finding His Own' and the sequel, 'A Place to Live.'
Other shorter stories, including 'The Last Word,' share the same
extensive characterization and personal psychological development
of all of Drake's stories that we've seen so far.
I used to read the stories posted by Driver at Nifty and daBeagle,
and I was simply in awe. Driver had an ability to tell a tale
and to seem to be speaking right to me and my needs. When his stories
we removed completely from the net, I was devestated, but his friends
have convinced him to post his stories again, this time on a site
made just for his works. 'The Quarry' and the related stories that
surround it were my favorites long ago, but 'Plan A' and its continuations
have lately taken a strong place in my heart.
The first gay love story I read and followed on the web, years
ago, was Frank's "First Impressions." The story itself,
while containing a number of chapters, is still incomplete but
well worth reading.
It's a great story of friendship, love, and strength.
Great stories by Jalakai like 'Untitled' and 'The Boy in
Your Dreams' as well as 'Dave's Gift' and 'Saving Donny' await
Chapters tend to be a bit short and updates have come to a grinding
halt, however the stories are worth a look.
This site contains the stories of It's Only Me From Across
The Sea as well as the stories of nearly two dozen other authors.
The site is full of resources and info as well as a huge list of
stories. There is plenty here to keep you occupied.
Julien has been writing for a while, but I only recently
started reading his works. It's a shame I hadn't been reading
these stories before - they're full of depth and emotional
realism, and I eagerly await every new chapter. "Storyville"
is complete and it's spinoff "Dustin" is nearly complete.
"Storyville 2" is in the works, and there are more stories
even beyond those. Updates come about once or twice a month.
A great completed multi-chapter story, 'Just Don't Think
I'm Not,' is well worth reading. Various poems, short stories,
and writings about the author's life experiences also fill the
site. The story, 'Geoff' is superb. Gabriel has recently been
posting new poems and writings fairly regularly, and his new
work is exceptional.
'Survivor,' 'The Dreamer,' and 'Earth, As It Is in Heaven'
are the available stories. After a significant absence, Roman
started the sequel to 'The Dreamer' and 'Earth, As It Is in Heaven,'
called 'Earth: the Final Tomorrow.' Updates have stopped, but
the completed writing is well worth reading.
The padded cell of Chyp Dyp and his two great stories: 'Misery'
and 'Judgement Error' (both of which are complete). A number of
good short stories are also available. Be sure to surf the whole
site - it's great stuff! Chyp states that he is working on a new
story that will eventually be posted, but these current stories
alone are worth the visit.
'Storm Front' is far and beyond the best story of relationships,
friendship, and love that I have yet read. You will find yourself
alternately feeling sad, angry, happy, confused, or frustrated
with the characters because they will seem so real that they
draw you into the story as if you were an actual bystander. New
chapters are coming quite regularly, and Ty is clearly back
and inspired. This is unquestionably a must-read. Cool site design
