Do I do the dude?
If I didn't have the libido of a flat tire lying on the side of the road collecting dust, I would do the dude, because that is how I'm wired. But this isn't about my sexual orientation or my dead-in-the-water libido that I don't want to revive and would straight-up kill anyone attempting to resuscitate it.
The question for this week's MFRW Blog Challenge is:
Week 38: MM Books: write them? Read them? Why or why not?
The later books in the Carnal Invasion series have a lot of man to man action in them. I definitely write M-M.
Most of my M-M reading has been in the fan fiction department. And yes, I do ship the above ship. As a wise soul said, those guys do not have a brotherly vibe.
Regarding romance, I often like reading M-M romance better than M-F. It may be just as full of tropes and cliches, but to my untrained eye, they aren't quite as glaring. M-M seems more authentic.
So, the answer to this week's question is yes and yes.

I care not which way the action swings. It needs to be well written and tropes need to concealed or at least not punching me in the face predictable.ReplyDelete
And I flatly refuse to read works where violence (sexual, physical, emotional) is painted as acceptable/justifiable. Other than that? Open slather.
I laughed out lol'ed at your title! My writing start was also in fanfiction. One of may fave MM ships was Anne Rice's Louis and Lestat. Thanks for sharing!ReplyDelete
I also think Anne Rice's books are so very sensual, and for either gender. There's somehow something freeing about MM relationships over MF. Don't know what it is.ReplyDelete
I think the tropes are different in M/M romance. Plus there's the whole added "forbidden romance" ala Romeo and Juliet vibe--only now it's Romeo and Tybalt! Ponder on that for a while. LOL.ReplyDelete
And like one of your commenters said, I don't like pain with my sex. Just give me pleasure, please. Keep the scares and bloody mess to yourself.
