Vita et Mors, and Solem et Lunam. Both are complete, so I guess, cheers!
Thanks for the update! I'm probably gonna update the list in a month or so. 


Unfortunately the: Ongoing, Dropped, Completed tags are more of a suggestion because this list will never be a real substitute for actual tags
Ah, well, step by step ya know. I looked at the list, and that is quite a collection. 😂

I believe Sereminar did the list manually. So it is all volunteer work to help reader find the things they wanna read.
As for my website list below on the signature... it is reference of Sereminar's list for easier sort and viewing.
I personally will update (mostly to remove those page not found works) on my end.

Ah, yeah, I don't know a single thing about programming and the majority of the list isn't even on my posts specifically but they're on FamtasyBliss's so even if i could make a program to update automatically id have to have it running on a google excell sheet and link to that instead. Like Shomin said i do all this manually and its very time consuming lol. But i appreciate the ideas :p

I've only just published the first two chapters here, but I'm planning on weekly updates from now on! It's a YA fantasy with a queer main character and several queer supporting characters. Doesn't focus on romance yet, but there's going to be a second book in the series where the main character gets a love interest.

I'd like to add my own story to the list! It features most recently a non-binary character with much more LGBTQIA+ representation coming as the story continues.

Finally deciding to add my story here! I have plans for non-binary and trans characters, but none of them have appeared yet, and really the only super noticeable thing right now is MLM, so I hope that’s okay.

Sorry if this is already on here, but a quick ctrl+f didn't show it, so if you want some good aro/ace representation, then I think Mother of Learning is really good for that (lol I know I'm recommending the most popular story on the site)! The main character mentions having had a few crushes, but he generally seems to stay pretty ace, which is cool since I don't see that around a lot in other big stories like it.

Hmmmm, maybe? I read it a couple years ago and don't remember well enough. If someone else agrees I'll put it in the list

Personally I don't really see the point of adding MOL, as noted its the most popular on the site so its gonna overshadow everything else in a big way if its included.
Content wise, I finally read it a couple of months ago and it didn't strike me as aro or ace rep personally, whilst I get headcannonin the main character as aro/ace personally I felt like it was more of an exclusion due to the nature of the plot than anything else?
Maybe other peoples experiance will vary? (I'm AroAllo)

Re: LGBTQIA+ Stories on Royal Road

It depends on whether the author wanted to be included as part of the LGBTQIA+ or not. 
Some ace/aro prefer to be excluded. 
As their marketing strategy, they might not want to be associated with the LGBTQI+.
For example, if they want to get into conservative readers group, it is to their best interest, not be be associate with LGBTQI+.
And if that's so, best is to respect their decision.
