Promote a non-romance based story!

hi there! I’ve noticed that a lot of amazing stories in the community get overlooked because they are not romance based. a lot of people are annoyed with the overused cliches and too much romance, so I wanted to give a space where you can promote either yours or someone else’s non-romanced themed story. it can have romance in it but it shouldn’t be the main theme of the story.

here is my story! because I had to choose an episode genre, I put it under drama, but really it’s an allegorical dystopian story, and I’d really appreciate it if you gave it a chance.

here is the plot:

it’s 2019. not much is different, technology is the same, animals are the same, even society is pretty much the same. but the way the world came about? that’s another story. when the Europeans conquered the western hemisphere, life for the indigenous was slaughtered. they were enslaved and put to work by intruders they never asked for. a century ago, The Great Revolt ended with the restoration of indigenous cultures, exile of Europeans, and most importantly, the outlaw of imperialism worldwide. the newly founded kingdom of Anevy soon became the most powerful country in the world, creating technology no other country could, and a fully functioning economy no one dared to counter. even the planet was safe, because maintaining the environment their ancestors lived off was crucial to everyone’s happiness. but when peace with Europe was agreed, immigration into Anevy created more problems than aid. Dakota struggles with the loss of a loved one due to peace between countries, and it’s up to him to grow as a person and save the world he lives in at the same time. with the princess of Anevy on his side, a better world doesn’t seem so impossible after all.

Hi!

Thank you for starting this Thread!
Your synopsis of the story sound amazing. I’m always looking for well written meaningful stories that aren’t based on love and sex too.

Here is my story info, it’s a fantasy story about how one act changes the MC’s lives. It has some romance but mostly it’s about fighting off your inner darkness.

Hope you’ll give it a chance. :slight_smile:
