cliche stories get boring but if they turn cliches around for example slavery white ruled over black the book ‘noughts and crosses’ turned that around blacks ruled over white - which made it something no one has read before making it more interesting. like with good girl x bad boy stories they dont end up together and she chooses a good guy instead to turn the plot on its head if you get what im saying.


Sometimes I love cliche stories, but other times they’re unbearable to read. If it’s well written, nice directing, and the characters are likable, I can enjoy a cliche story a lot. :blush:

Cliche stories have a special place for me though. Tropes and cliches are so safe, sometimes I will read them as a “palate cleanser” after reading a story that just leaves me an emotional mess. :joy:


I like them, and at the same time I don’t. It depends on the specific cliche, I think.

I used to loathe the bad boy cliche until I read some Episode stories. And I was like, I’ll give it a try, and…huh. Not so bad!! I like it a bit, I really do. So I guess you can say it grew on me. And then…it didn’t so much. XD

I LOVE chosen ones. I’m a sucker for a chosen one. IF it’s done well, so…that’s a cliche I will always love, I think.

I do not like love triangles so much. Sometimes, they can be done well, but most of the time I feel like these fall pretty flat.

Dead or absent parent cliche I do not mind. I feel like it doesn’t happen near as often as portrayed, hence why it is cliche, but it is kinda like…I could do with or without it TBH

I can’t think of anymore right now…


I think there’s nothing wrong about cliche stories, as long as they are just cliche but not copies from each other. Normally every story is different in any way. For a long time I’ve only read bad boy stories. If the directing is fine and the author put effort in writing the story, it’s worth reading for me.


I totally understand giving it a different spin so it’s different and it intrigues people


Yeah I feel the same they are amazing when done right but if they aren’t portrayed in the right way it could be disaster


Yeah haha the love triangles I don’t mind I feel like you get to choose who you would want to be with but at the same time it’s sometimes such a hard choice :joy:


I agree I was the same I was always looking for bad boy stories but I’ve read so many I want something different but it’ll always be a favourite when done right


Ookay, I don’t like the cliches where someone that should not be experienced in a particular field does better than someone that’s considered expert. I’m not a huge huge fan of prodigies. I like arcs and stuff.

I usually don’t mind when a character likes someone, and they’re like…no way can you ever be with this person! And then they end up with them. But I would like to see one where they don’t end up with them. Maybe with someone more eligible, less fantasic, but maybe a lot more interesting than on the surface.

Now, I never understood this. Why don’t people still like evil for evil’s sake? I LOVE evil for evil’s sake. Like…demons and stuff. They’re just evil. No feeling, no nothing, just evil. I love that cliche. My favorite probs.

I do not like the cliche that the evil villain (if they aren’t evil for evil’s sake) is either ugly, stupid, especially deviant from what’s considered “normal”.

I do like when the villain is sassy and kinda flamboyant, like Hades in Hercules, for example. That’s done well and it’s funny.

I like adventuring priests or healers, monks, etc.

LOL!! I do like organized thief organizations. I think those are beautiful. XD


Wow that’s very interesting I get where your coming from I actually am writing a story like your second paragraph based on a true story so I hope that will get some readers as it’s not your typical cliche story

Okay, I think I followed the right account. I’m Nelida. XD


Haha I was worried my story would go down the cliche avenue actually but decided to go the slow burn romance route.

With cliches - when I started reading, I LIVED for cliches but now I find them boring to read.

However, stories with romance, drama and gangs DO appeal to me if the writing is good & is overall an engaging tale. Romance all the way though - I love good chemistry between characters.
