Recs for mystery stories by small creators?

Just joined episode after a long hiatus and I’m looking for some stories that are primarily mysteries. Some romance is okay, preferably LGBTQ+, but the main focus should be on the mystery. I’m hoping for some stories from small authors. Any recs?

Some mystery stories I’ve read:


Hide and Seek~ Melia A.
Summer Fever~ Lucas
Darkness Speaks~ Mary D Sava
Labyrinth~ Sani (Haven’t read yet, but in favorites)
Deadly Game~ Emma Luz
Murder Mansion~ Suelita
Time is Deadly~ Willow (Just started)

I don’t think it’s from small creators but those stories are some of the best


Maybe not the type of mystery you’re looking for but it’s got drama and romance. I have a female li option (That’s written the right way. Not just thrown In there for representation points. :relaxed:)

Title: Can’t Let Go

Greetings! Thank you very much for this thread. Though not solely mystery, you may enjoy my story Eternal Oblivion. There are a number of different questions and mysteries in the story with different reveals and answers coming throughout. I’d definitely recommend it if you love finding little clues and piecing things together for yourself. If you do end up checking it out I’d love to hear any thoughts you may have. :grin:

Eternal Oblivion

Title: Eternal Oblivion
Author: Silver Lady
Genre: Fantasy primarily with a large dose of mystery, as well as action, drama, romance, and historical fiction thrown in from time to time.
Style: Limelight
Number of Episodes: 42. Story is complete. NO “Skip the Wait”.
CC: Kinda. You can’t customize the main three characters (for story reasons), but there is a character for you to customize starting with chapter five. You won’t see much of her to start, but she becomes more important later in the plot.
Description: When a powerful force rises to threaten the world, can Amara and her allies defeat the ancient death dragon? Or is life as they know it doomed?
Additional Info: The story unfolds on multiple timelines over the course of 5k+ years, and examines the affect true immortality could have on a person and their loved ones, as well as how the choices we make can have long lasting consequences, and the idea of determinism vs. free will.

Hello! I just published a story called the Princess and the Paladin, it is somewhat of a locked room mystery that takes place in an ancient castle and features a sapphic enemies to lovers romance. It’s more romance heavy but the mystery is really exciting (at least I think so). Would love if you gave it a shot!
