We provide an accurate description of the long time dynamics for generalized Korteweg-de Vries  and Benjamin-Ono equations on the circle without external parameters and for almost any (in probability and in density) small initial datum. To obtain that result we construct for these two classes of equations and under a very weak hypothesis of non degeneracy of the nonlinearity, rational normal forms on open sets surrounding the origin in high Sobolev regularity. With this new tool we can make precise the long time dynamics of the respective flows. In particular we prove a long-time stability result in Sobolev norm: given a large constant M and a sufficiently small parameter ε, for generic initial datum u(0) of size ε, we control the Sobolev norm of the solution u(t) for time of order ε^{−M}.
