Dirty Little Secrets came for ISWAB :joy::sob:


#377

I need to read that story ASAP


#378

I find it stupid as hell. Especially because the plot forces MC to interact with that crazy “bad boy” that’s always Episode’s formula instead of the “good guy”. Plus, they always find an excuse for the bad boy’s behaviour to make MC feel bad for him or something. It’s weird as hell how they always promote abusive relationships as the interesting ones, over and over.

I don’t know about any of you. Is it just me or is it that Episode wants all the reader’s attention?
First of all, such a topic obviously cause outrage in the community, and the word spreads out, some people only know the story by this thread, so if sort of promoting the story. You see, the previous stories are better (I also think so.) but for some reason, I don’t think they were getting that much attention. So this feature story sort of sets aside from the others. They were designed to be cliche and contain content that people spoken up about, but it certainly grabs attention.


#380

Especially bc Episode’s team promote it by adding them to the “hot this week” shelf.


#381

Exactly :slight_smile:


#382

Episode been so odd lately won’t let us save up passes they want to spend more money which there is no problem with that. But shouldn’t they do some quality stories instead of trashy yes trashy always been a successful genre.
But shouldn’t feature stories bring readers in showing the best episode community has to offer not the worst.
There plenty of trashy stories that are gem free on the app why waste money on gems when they story isn’t even written well what happened limelight was introduced and episode went crap.


#383

I guess it’s Ok but its not my kind of story. I mean a girl thats getting screwed over by a guy over and over , they are like so many stories like that


#384

so true


#385

#386

Awwwww

I’ve noticed that all of the Episode Official stories have a forced romance in them. Many others have likely noticed this too. And they always manage to make the romance get in the way, and this It Starts With A Bra thing just makes it worse. However, they recently released a preview of another story. Of course there is a whole bunch of romance, but it actually looks pretty interesting. Chances are the romance is going to bug me so much that I’ll stop reading it, which happens in many of the stories I read.


#388

I just hate when stories just force romance plot lines, I mean come on. You can do better than this. Even amateur writer will think twice before writing forced romances. They are just unrealistic, romance in real life, in fact most of the time would take months before two lovers realise the love each other.


#389

I don’t like the story. I don’t like how it starts.
We need to take this story down.
I dislike it.


#390

And it’s not very hard to make the romance optional. It only takes a few GAINS and labels!


#391

I dislike it.

Along with thousands of other people AND it breaks the guidelines. I know that Episode realizes this so why don’t they take it down? Probably because it makes too much money, and they have a lot of authors to pay.


#392

@AllyJay I think “It starts with a bra” is a little weird, first neighbor grabs a girls bra, next thing ya know, they sleep together. :sleeping_bed:


#393

I dislike the story. This story is very sexist. Stealing a ladies’ undergarments is very inappropriate. Sneaking into a girl’s bedroom to steal underwear?! OH COME ON! And then boys wonder why girls think boys are literally trash. Then, they fall in love? Girl falls for bad boy? Very cliche, and I don’t think this should spread across the app. This also breaks the guidelines. For “Racist, sexist, homophobic, or other discriminatory content.” And others. Episode should realize this issue, and take the story down. But of course, it was made by the team, so you CAN’T take it down. Because it’s THEIR story. This story promotes bad behavior. Boys and girls can think this is appropriate, and do this in real life. As it already happens sometimes. Because I know some kids still read Episode, even when they’re underage. Even people repeated to not read Episode if you are younger, they still read it. And they might not know that this is terrible behavior, and might do it when they’re older. Such a shame. Please remember, no hate for this. It is just an opinion.


#394

You get to decide at the end


#395

It’s actually not a story episode has written!
I remember I saw this user story called The bad boy that stole my bra or something like that.
