Reading fantasy, thriller, mystery, sci-fi stories under 50k reads

Hello, community!

As sometimes I have no motivation to read stories I already know, I want to discover some new ones!

I’m sucker for fantasy and am starting to love thriller, mystery stories. And sci-fi is a good escape.

BUT I have some rules (sorry, I have a specific taste):

  • Story HAS to be under 50k, as I want to discover stories from small authors (as myself)
  • It has to be Limelight (I’m not the biggest fan of INK anymore)
  • I don’t care if it has CC, I’m fine with no CC too!
  • Please, please, please no 500 year old vampires and werewolves and 18 year old MC (I like vampire, werewolf stories, but ONLY if the story can surprise me. No clitches.)
  • No high school or university as a place where MC and LI goes (I can’t stand these stories that include school.)
  • If it’s thriller, mystery, please no talk or showing about s*icide.
  • And the main one - the story needs to have at least 10- 15 episodes or completed (I don’t want to start amazing story and then the author doesn’t update or abandon it.)
