Discussion: Episode Opinions

Yeah, you can few or more stories in that genre with cringey descriptions with words “stranger”, “mafia”, “dangerous”, or other words shoved in that make the description cringey too.

I don’t like it when the MC behaves rudely towards mean girls or bullies. I mean then where is the difference between the “mean girl” and the MC?

Yes, the MC needs to stand up for herself when being bullied but that doesn’t mean they have to be rude or violent.

Another thing is when MC is “saved” by the LI from a bully or so. I like to make my own decisions and I’m capable of standing up for myself, thank you very much.

Oh, and I am tired of mafia stories.

Also let me add that I don’t like those loooooonnnnggggg, booooorrrrrriiiiinnnnnggggg narrations about how the LI is built like a “Greek God”. Not all people have six/ eight packs and some may feel bad. Small narrations are okay with me. But I prefer “show, not tell”.

Long author intros/ outros. I don’t like author’s avatar popping up on the screen and saying “in the last chapter we learnt that blah blah blah”. If you want to give a recap simply do so as a narration. Making the author’s character come and introduce to the characters of the story is something I don’t like. The author is not a character in the story so it’s weird tbh.

Not sure if this constitutes an unpopular opinion, but LL’s run_super_speed_loop animation looks f*cking hilarious to me. I’ve seen people use it during really intense scenes, and it just makes me chortle. And when they put in on like .35 for the dramatic exit—bruh :sob: I would only suggest using it for comedy’s sake.

What do they do in long author intros? And what makes that makes annoying or boring?

Well, the author creates a character who simply is a representation of the author to the readers. There sometimes authors make jokes and make the author character introduce the main characters to the readers and sometimes they are so long as the author keeps talking with the characters and cracking jokes. :tired_face:

True! I also see this at the end of many stories, the MC and LI get married because the MC is pregnant and that’s the end. I would like to see different endings.

I don’t mean to be that person… but why authors can’t give POC/LGTBQ+ people unique personalities? sometimes their only purpose in the story is to be the gay friend who loves fashion, the black/Latina noisy best friend, etc.

We have hundreds of stories with blonde MC, but I can barely name you a few stories with Asian, Latina, or African American MC. I don’t know, maybe it’s my fault for reading too many trending stories, maybe small authors do have different MCs.

I don’t like forced inclusion, but I would be tired of seeing hundreds of Latinas MCs even tho I’m from South America. The same applies to the Italian LI, there’s a ton of ethnicities and features but some authors use the same for all stories.

Please don’t see this as an insult to Italians or blonde people, but the characters on the stories are really generic. The problem is that they all look alike, people could make blonde girls with different features, but I swear that many of them look the same (this also applies to the Italian LI). You can even create a Russian, German or Swedish blonde MC and it would be more unique than the typical blonde girl from LA/NY.

I actually saw an intro just like that, idk if it was the same one but she was like oh the LI is mine and it was Limited CC and you had to play as her. Yeah, it was weird I don’t think I got past the first chapter. I find it creepy when people on episode act like that. :flushed:

That’s why I like short author intros where bring they bring the mc in and say you can CC and name them and then the author leaves.

Because apparently being POC/LGBTQ+ is their personality. :sob::sob:

Honestly, please don’t force diversity. If you feel like you may be offending someone or something, then don’t write it if you’re not ready.

Personally I don’t like to have very sad endings in stories just because I don’t have enough points

Small things like ‘You didn’t get to see this bonus scene as you don’t have enough points’ is fine but the LI leaving me is not :feels:
