    Ahn...the only shonen-ai title I know of is Gravitation. *shrugs*
    She might be better off looking for dojinshi. (Tell her to be careful of the H ones.)

    @dizzy: She already has a Tokyo Crazy Paradise (she's been telling to read it, though I haven't touched it XD).

    @pseudo: I think any recommendation would do. She's more into the mainstreaming titles. So I don't think she'd have them all.

    ...will just shonen-ai titles do? Or pseudo-shonen-ai? Yakuza shonen-ai is pretty specific. :/

    http://shoujomagic.net/update/index.php

    I haven't personally read anything off this site, since when I found it I didn't have IRC to download...but each title has its genre listed, comments, a rating, and a synopsis. So if she's up for some browsing, she may be able to find something good here.

    And, of course: http://www.storminheaven.net/sih/nathaniel-e.htm

    They do good work. Personal favourites when it comes to the shonen-ai titles include Demian Syndrome, Silver Diamond, and Tsuki to Mizu no Yoru. Na mo Naki Tori no Tobu Yoake (Innocent Bird - it's available right here on ST) may be something she'd like...some of the characters are kind of tough? Maybe? Well, they wear suits anyway. I haven't read a few of the shonen-ai titles on SiH...the historical ones may be up her alley, I'm not sure.

    Cute shonen-ai is definitely not a specialty of mine, I've decided. Unmei ni Kiss is pretty cute, if pretty predictable...Nanaki and Sequence are cute, if the shonen-ai is only implied...

    Urrrgh. Well, good to her finding what she wants. Sorry I couldn't help more.

    Edit - I said Nanaki was only implied. >__> And Titi is a man, I swear! *totally convinced*

    Nanaki is only implied; there's no real love there at all. ^^;; And it STILL hasn't been decided what gender the main love interest in Sequence is.

    Gravitation = good. I just popped in here 'cause I'm bored, but I feel the need to mention Reverse?! because it's still a shounen-ai story that I love. ^_^ It's a typical story set in an all-boys school, but I guess the teacher's extreme corruption (not sexually!) and the sexual-assault-kid could definitely count towards. Um. Bad things.

    (ShoujoMagic wouldn't have a lot of shounen-ai, I think. It's mostly just shoujo manga with straight pairings.)

    Yeah, there's very little shounen-ai at Shoujo Magic. In fact, I think the only non-straight couple I've found among their series is a shoujo-ai one-shot.

    devius: My best suggestion is have her go through the catalogs of publishers specializing in yaoi, such as BLU. Sorry I can't be of more help.

    Well thanks for taking the time (Haven't been OL for a while, since I'm enjoying summer ^_^ *swims swims*). You guys have been great help.

    @kaom: I'll give her the link you posted plus the titles you mentioned. I'll let you know if she finds anything up-her alley(I'm pretty sure she will ^_^).

    @pseudo: Thanks pseudo! I'll tell her about the publisher. Though I think she mentioned something about BLU...hmm...not too sure though XD. But I'll tell her just the same ^_^

    @digi: I remember accidentally(the cd was unlabeled) watching a Gravi epi(if you consider the the first 5 minutes as watching XD). And...well...it was quite memorable.
