Recommend some Non-Cliche stories!

Hiii, I just got back on this app after a little break and would love some non-cliche story recommendations. I really would like for customization if it’s possible. It could old or new stories, just looking for some really interesting and unique stories.


I’d like to recommend my book, it’s about a parody of cliches. Feel free to check it out if you’d like :blob_hearts:

Poison for your Heart by Aykay :point_right::point_left::blush:

The Big Great by Sugarfoot Stories! It’s probably one of the most original stories I ever read, no cliche :wink:

Edit: Sorry this was supposed to be a reply to the post in general, not specifically @Aykay (sorry about that lol)

Hey! :grin: I’m going to do a bit of shameless self-promotion here, where I took some of the cliches and kind of turned them on their head as the story progresses. It’s ongoing in Ink without CC, but I just started converted it to LL with CC. Basically, it revolves around a death metal band and their antics. There is a polyamory option (a legit one where the feelings are built up and developed throughout the whole story, not just thrown in as an afterthought to “choose both” at the end or just two dudes lusting after the MC) and there’s also an option for the two LIs who are originally “fighting for the girl” to actually fall in love with each other.


Description : When your secret death metal band hires a new roadie and your guitarist declares his love for you, your double-life gets a bit complicated. (Dramedy, CC for MC+LIs, 4 main branches)
Style : Limelight
Genre: Comedy + Drama = Dramedy
Episodes : 5 ongoing (but I have 33 total in Ink that just need to be converted)
CC: Yes

For stories not by me, I really like Rock-A-Bye-Baby by @CosmicIvy since it’s from the POV of a character I haven’t really seen before in Episode stories (I’m not gonna spoil it :wink:)

I tried to name a few of the stories that I read and think that they aren’t cliche, but I don’t remember them all, also, the descriptions that I gave might contain spoilers, so be aware.

I still love you by Deby for romance, It’s about childhood friends (that loved each other secretly), one day they get separated and as they grow old away from each other their feelings remain the same.

Rainbow of hope by Avdevz for fantasy, it’s about a girl that at her birthday her grannies has something to tell her which changes her life for ever.

The good sister and the bad sister by alalala for romance, its about two completely different sisters and how karma finds them.

Finding emeral for fantasy romance, I don’t find it cliche but it might seems at one point, but I don’t think it is, (by sarah kieser) its about a girl escaping from her abusing husband and leaves with a man without knowing that he is her country’s enemy.

Eclipsis fantasy, historical, you MUST read it, my old time favorite by (victoria masina) about a girl at old times that pretends to be a man and accidentally travels back in time.

I like all of joseph evan’s stories, especially those that are in classic style (if you dont mind classic read embers effect, its amazing (I think i hit the maximum number of replays in this one))

:point_right: :point_left: :point_right: :point_left: :point_left: :point_right: :point_left: :point_right: :point_left: then again i think i could suggest to you to read a story that I wrote named Robin’s blood, its mystery and it’s about a girl that accidentally trespass into the Underworld on a mission to find her country’s savior, only to get captured by the (anti)hero.
