My Opinions

Cliques: I am not a fan of romance cliques you see a lot (bad boy, c.e.o, mary sue). I can’t get into them because I have seen them to much and I don’t like the themes they are built on most times. Almost any other genre clique I am alright with though.
Features: I really don’t like Arched Bushy Eyebrows for the guys. They do not appeal to me because I can’t take them seriously. I don’t like the long tapered widows peak hair either. It looks like some super villain hair from a children’s show to me. That works for certain stories and character’s but I can not take it seriously. I love the Medium Messy Fluffy Parted hair for guys. It is just so fluffy! I have mixed feelings about the High Spiral Pigtail Hair for girls. It is cute sure but it just looks so thin to me. I love the Short Flipped Wavy Solid hair for girls! It just looks so pretty to me. That could be because when I was younger I wanted that hair cut.
Episode Featured Stories: I can’t say much on these because I don’t play these. I only play through community stories because featured gem choices drive me crazy.
Character Styles: I stand with limelight. I love INK considering that is the style that was used when I first started reading on episode. I just think the shading on the limelight character’s is what wins it over for me. I won’t turn a story away because it is in INK though.

I don’t really like limelight, I refuse to read a limelight story it just seems so unnatural for me idkk.
I don’t read featured stories either…WHY? bc they ask you to use gems and I feel gems are dumb. Some episode features are super ugly TO ME and I refuse to use them unless I’m using it on a character that’s ‘mean’ or something. I don’t really mind cliques, I mean it’s always nice to read a bad boy falls for good girl story as long as it’s not SUPER predictable.

On the forums go crazy and get very angry about some stories. I am not going to call anyone out, but I have seen some pretty bad things on here. Like just because the author can’t see it, that doesn’t mean it’s okay??
Also, I love Ink and Limelight equally. I want and will use both. I think Episode should still be updating Ink though, since so many people still use it and a lot still prefer it over Limelight.
THE FEATURED STORIES ON THE APP NEED TO BE BETTER.
Please they need to fixed.
I don’t read them anymore, but when I used to like I loved them. Secret of the Rain, Mean Girls, and I Married a Prince. I loved those stories so much :joy:

I truly dislike LL but I feel like if a story is truly written good then the story’s style just doesn’t matter to me. There’s such a beautiful LL story that I wish I could remember the name; it’s one of my favorites and I think it’s like one of the very few LL stories I’ll actually ever read.

I don’t like full character customization and choosing my name :sweat_smile:. idk it just seems unnatural to me and I want to play as who the author envisioned me as. I don’t love no CC either cuz I might end up with a character who has odd or non matching features (ex: haircolor and eyebrow color) and it would bug me. Limited CC is the best, and I have it in all my stories because it’s like I envisioned my character but the reader still gets some input. I also never let my reader name their character, because that’s my preference, and all my characters names usually have some deeper meaning.
