And Now for Something Last Minute... "Artifice" by Alex Woolfson

Since some of us are big fans of yaoi here at Squeefinity, I thought I'd recommend checking out an American webcomic that takes on the genre. You might consider Alex Woolfson and Winona Nelson's Artifice currently available online. Here is what the author has to say about the story:

Artifice is about Deacon, a prototype android soldier so advanced he is referred to as an "artificial person." On one of his first missions, Deacon was ordered by his corporate masters to eliminate a team of scientists who knew too much—and he has failed spectacularly. Not only did he let one of the targets live, he attacked the team sent to retrieve him. Now the Corporation wants answers and they bring in the brilliant robopsychologist Dr. Clarice Maven to get them—giving her the power to make sure Deacon never fails the Corporation ever again.

As Deacon tries to keep his secrets and the doctor cuts through his defenses, a cunning game of cat-and-mouse begins. The question is: will Deacon be able to resist Dr. Maven’s power and protect the only thing that has ever truly mattered to him?

Sounds pretty good to me! I've been a bit down on some yaoi lately because it seems to fall straight into hentai or pron. What I'm looking for is a good thought provoking story where the main characters just happen to be gay. So, yeah! Good for this one. I look forward to reading it, and I hope you do, too.

And for those with more interest, the author is running a very soon to be finished Kickstarter, which you can support!

I agree. P0rn is pron and yaoi is yaoi and they aren't the same thing.
I want a story, if I want the other thing...well, I don't want the other thing, so there's that.

I agree. : ) I'm not in it for porn, at all. This means I seldom get what I want in book-length doses . . .
