Recommend advanced directing stories

Okay, so I have a whole bunch of passes. I haven’t read episode in a long while. (probably 7 months).

Can you guys suggest stories with advanced directing?

I mostly love mystery murder stories but any genre can do. And I don’t mind if you recommend your story too. Hopefully the directing is pretty decent.


Hello @Sayanjali_Rizvi!

My story Call of Duty has advanced directing, mini games, art scenes, diversity and art scenes!

It would mean a lot if you could check it out even if it is only for one episode…

Hope to hear from you very soon!


It’s a brand new story, hopefully publishing this Friday if not sooner! Would you like to read it? It has a lot of horror, thriller elements to it. I know my way around directing so I tried my best to incorporate advanced directing. I also create some of my own BG’s and OL’s too.

Here is a thread I created all about my new story:
Death List


In Her Shoes by dkr_episode
Trapped by Alusza (I recommend reading the original not the featured)
Bad Reputation by Naemi Tiana
The Gamer Girl by Wincy.writes
The Clumsy Super Girl


Hii. Not sure if you’re interested in this, but I’ll drop it down in case you are…
I have a comedy story about online school during the pandemic. :cat_typing:
(It has advanced directing and was recently featured on the LOL shelf).

Here is some of the recommendations I can think of right now because I’m a very avid reader here on episode. I can’t even add more on my list because it’s full like how-

  1. This will forever and always be my favorite story. I love zombie stories/movies everything. Sadly it’s discontinued but it’s still worth the read. Choices make you really think and the directing is just phenomenal.
The Infected by Caitoriri

  1. Now we have my favorite author. I swear you read any of her stories and she doesn’t leave you disappointed. All her stories are so well directed and unique. She leaves you in awh. You did say you wanted some murder elements to it so here you go. It’s a great read!
Aftertaste by Ji

Definitely recommend anything from her!

  1. This is my second favorite story, I’m not very into romance stories but wow this story is so beautiful. The directing is so cinematic and the romance is literally perfect. I really enjoyed reading such an amazing story, and I actually would like to see more like these on episode because the romance is just so gentle and sweet. Romance should be portrayed more like that.
Dare to Dream by Sarah Robbins

  1. It’s very rare for me to read any comedy. This one is probably one of my favorite rom-com stories I’ve ever read. Well, also sticks and stones is a very good one. The directing is very amazing.
Legally Clueless by Charlie Cee

I truthfully recommend both. Legally Clueless and Sticks and Stones by JasmineLilac are my favorite rom-com stories out there.

  1. This story is probably one of the best directed stories I’ve ever seen my whole life. It’s like watching a movie, extremely cinematic.
Watch My Six by Laila C.

  1. This story is definitely making its way to my top favorites, it probably is already because I have only a couple. Every character feels so realistic! I love the slow romance that is going on. I don’t know even know what to say it’s so good and the use of overlays and directing is so amazing!
Folk Devils by M. Jordan

  1. I love reading horror stories but one of my other favorite genres to read is fantasy. This is a very well directed, thought out story. I love the idea of this story, I find it very intriguing!
The Wrong Side Of Time by Blanca

If any of you have suggestions in thriller/horror stories let me know because The Infected is probably and will always be my top one and haven’t found anything like it. So I really wish to find more stories.


Reveal: The Privileged Prestige

Prestige’s time-traveling ability is deemed useful during an investigation of a suspicious event. Will her mission be put at risk, thanks to an intriguing stranger from the 2000s?

I love The Infected! :heart_eyes::heart_eyes: I was so sad when it was discontinued! Do you know why that is?


There’s i-Humanoids by @HazelJ. It’s got really good directing, and it’s in the sci-fi/ mystery-ish genre.


It was due to Episode making their guidelines so strict. She left episode as a whole :sob: one of my favorite stories and author ever and she’s gone, I was so sad. I hope one day she comes back but it’s been such a long time. But sadly yes she left the episode community. Many authors did as well because of the changing of guidelines.
