Hi! I’m Daniela and I’ve been reading Episode stories for a short time. I have this doubt in my head and eventhough I’ve been been reading Episode guidelines I don’t fully understand the issue.
Episode is supposed to be a +13 rated (?) app but almost every story I want to read has this warning message about mature content and strong language, that is sometimes suggested in the cover or title (sex/violence/abuse/mafia/gangs, etc.) but sometimes you just have to imagine what kind of topic is going to be inside because there aren’t many authors that especify it.
It has been difficult to find stories without it (especially in the top-most readed chart) so I would like you to recommend some stories that don’t have mature content/strong language. They could be in ink or limelight style, even classic. Could be your own story, doesn’t matter the genre and if it has 1 or 1 million views.
I just want to read good stories (I know they are somewhere hidden in the corners of Episode and you just have to know how to search) Thank you for your help!

Girl, I feel you lol. The Episode team has been working on a separate app for 18+ readers, which I appreciate, but I’m still very certain that it will mainly consist of sex-based stories. I’m honestly only excited for it because there will finally be stories about ‘mature’ themes that aren’t romance-y. (Like sensitive topics, fighting, guns and war, stuff like that.) I’m not all that into stories like what are on the Episode app now. Romance is my favorite genre, but not… how it’s portrayed in the app, if you get what I mean.
Anyway, I didn’t feel like typing all of these out lol so here’s a screenshot of what I’ve been reading lately. They all have pretty mild language, nothing too crazy.
Some other suggestions are Five More Minutes by Kylie M, all of Kat Valentine’s stories, all of Sofía Ceri’s stories, We’re the Cresswells by Blair, all of earlgreytea’s stories, 365 Days (To Find Love) by Eleanor.
I can keep going, but I think this is good enough Feel free to ask me for more recommendations if you want! Hope this helps
I’d like to suggest my own story, because I made it with the intention of it being a little more wholesome and family-friendly after noticing this was a problem too
Title: By The Book Author: Amberose Style: Limelight (spotlight) Genre: Mystery Description: You were just a simple librarian who loved mystery stories, until a nudge from your best friend leads you to solving some real life crimes. Do you have what it takes? Link:http://episodeinteractive.com/s/4689559669768192
Hi, thanks for the thread! This is my story! It only has a few bad words, which are censored and not used often (The beginning has the most I think). Other than that, “overly mature content” isn’t an issue in my story and it’s innocent lol. I agree it’s hard to find stories that aren’t what you listed.
Description: Leah and Xavier were abandoned on The Island as babies. Together, they try to figure out why. Along the away, they discover even more than they ever could have anticipated.
Genre: adventure, drama, romance, some action too. lol
(The chapters do get longer. I wrote the beginning chapters a while ago, so the editing gets better later.)
It has over 52k reads so far. There are 45 chapters out currently.

My stories may have some curse words here and there, but the content isn’t really mature - like 100% definitely not mature the way the top stories are. Not sure if that’s what you’re looking for or not, but thought I’d list them here anyway.
