Well I discovered Episode at age 15. What got me to write a story was the lack of gay couples. It was always about a girl pair with a guy. Don’t get wrong the stories were great. I just didn’t like playing as female character. I don’t work with anyone here, because people in this forum are strangers, and sometimes they ask too much info about your age and where you live. I don’t mind saying the country. But giving my address that’s crazy. I want to make friends here, but is so hard. They ask you wants your name and you respond, but when you ask for their name in return they change the subject. I don’t know if I’ll ever make an actual friend here.
Updated, someone flagged me, give me a reason why you did that?

Wow!!!
I mean… really wow!!! I’m talking about people being actual freaks on here!!! Why would you ask someone their address and stuff? That is completely creepy, and you should report anyone that is asking you stuff like that. It is inappropriate and unsafe. :woman_shrugging:t5: I am sorry you have experienced that. Have you written many stories? Is there anyone here on Episode that you like reading? Or have you pretty much been your own favorite writer?

I think I looked up romance on the apple app a long time ago. I used to love these romantic Asian apps.

Yoville got me started and this other fashion app where the user collect clothes.

Any hoot, I like romance and cutesy games. Having those types of games become interactive was an added bonus.

I started writing to creatively share my well-rounded knowledge in cosmetics. I work full time as a teacher and see a need to have some type of gamification to teach younger generations what I know in a fun, simple way. I think COVID has really exposed the disconnection gap between Boomers and Zoomers in an educational setting.

I really appreciate your comments here. Thank you so very much for sharing. I used to read romantic Asian apps all of the time !!! I was also on Covet (a fashion app where you buy and model looks etc. )


I couldn’t agree with you more about that point. I have been educating my nieces and nephews as much as possible about a plethora of different topics that the “cancel culture” just doesn’t quite have a grasp on. And I am able to hold their attention via zoom.
In terms of this site… I plan to sprinkle some history and melanated inspiration within my stories. It is taking me a while to construct and direct the animation , but I am enjoying and appreciating the challenge of learning how to perfect what I am learning to create. :heart:

Man that fashion app had me wasting real money on fake clothes :joy:

There was also this cute bakery game that was similar. The more you baked, you could expand and decorate

Ma’am… that game had me $0.99-ing myself 2-3 times every single week… I had to break myself of the addiction. Because I was absolutely addicted. When I started finally making Top Look… maaaaaaaannnnnn…, I was logging in daily… I had to delete that app off of 4 different devices. 4 :clap:t5: different :clap:t5: devices :clap:t5:

I truly hope you are not talking about Flo’s adventures in Diner Dash 1 -75… :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: I’m weak!!!

"The President’s Daughter" Honaaaayyyyy… I can NOT wait for the next season or whatever she has planned for us. Because I want that heffer charged for attempted murder for trying to kill Kendal, and then trying to act like she didn’t push her off the cliff. :unamused:

LOL. NOT 4 devices. I used to change my clock to get certain items :crazy_face:

Never heard of the flo thing. These were fb apps when I used to have an account lol.

Baking life and mall world were fire. I am pretty sure my fb friends got tired of advertisements on my account to get bonus items.
