What things turn you away from stories?
Here are mine:
If the title or description has the words “Gang” or “Mafia” in it
If the pacing is either too fast or too slow
The author shows up at the beginning of the story, or at the end to say something
When the directing has a lot of errors
Student teacher relationships
Descriptions or titles have the words “Bad boy” in it
And a lot more that I can’t think of right now
When the first episode is only customization, ugh I hate that!
Same, there’s only one story I continued, and it turned out to be amazing. But otherwise, I never read a story like that again.
I’ve stated in many threads on what I hate, so I’ll only state my top 5:
- Long, awkward scenes where the MC and LI just do the idle_armscrossed_neutral_loop at each other (many romance stories do this)
- Teen pregnancy stories
- Mafia/Gang bullsh*t
- Sexualizing teenagers cough cough Viola M
- Bad. Boys. I’m tired of them!
i agree with all of them except the 3rd one because sometimes they actually have something important to say, buttt if it ain’t something important yeah its annoying .
Sometimes for me the advanced directing can be really annoying and having them shift from one zone to another gives me a headache, a better way to put it is when the transitioning is not smooth
Also when there is a plot that goes really fast like oh, you meet the characters and they fall in love and have kids in like the first few episodes I actually read some of a story where this happened
Stereotypes on a gender, race, orientation, or culture
Oh… The first one is bad… I should really avoid a story like that, too…
Oh yeah → speech bubbles when the lips are not moving… (Like the author isn’t careful enough about choosing an animation fit for the text… )
Another one: Teacher Student romances…
Not gonna lie, i used to do this with my old stories back in 2016 But now it’s like my biggest pet peeves lmfao
Same tho, but I never uploaded those storied
When you’ve to customize the MC, the LI, the MC’s mom, MC’s dad, MC’s sibling/s, MC’s best friend, MC’s second best friend, LI’s mom, LI’s dad, LI’s sibling/s, LI’s best friend in the first chapter at the beginning and you can’t skip any of it.
ugh thats so annoying i just keep them as they are
another 1 is when you pick that you like girls but they keep misgendering your love interest.
Like whats the point in giving me the choice if you’re just gonna forget to change the coding-
