Tired of Teen Pregnancy/Bad Boy Stories


#1

Does anyone else feel the same?


#2

i’m just tired of the same clichéness in stories. I don’t mind reading a pregnancy/bad boy story IF there’s a good plot twist that doesnt make it cliché.


#3

You’ve got a good point. One example is “Blake”, which is about abuse, but has both as well.


#4

Blake is pretty good, although, going back to Grace, I kinda feel like it went the ‘bad boy pregnancy’ route. Though, I suppose those stories don’t go as far as Grace has…


#5

I actually started reading Grace, what happens, though?


#6

Unless you don’t care about spoilers, you should read it for yourself. :wink:


#7

Aww… I’ve gotta stop reading Becoming Queen Bee for a bit.


#8

It’s worth it! Even though I despise Alden with a burning passion, I still found something to enjoy.


#9

They are pretty cliche, and plus, there everywhere.


#10

I like dripping mascara


#11

Agreed.


#12

Dripping mascara?


#13

Alden? Isn’t that Aldo and Joane’s son? What’d he do?


#14

Also, on a completely unrelated note, can you read my story “Cruelty of Ice”? It’s different from most stories, and I need feedback. :slightly_smiling_face:


#15

Yup.


#16

So glad that there’s people who can relate! :+1:


#17

Yes I am mostly because bad boys are all the same

Fuckboys that sleep around and start fights.
I’m sorry I like a guy that I won’t need a hazmat suit when I’m around them.


#18

Oh, absolutely. Most boys I know of (not ALL) are “fuckboys”, or bad boys. Plus, what’s the point of promoting teen pregnancy?

???


#19

If a story explained the hardships of a pregnancy and didn’t just focus on the relationship of the parents. (Or glorify their sexual encounters)
I don’t think I would mind that.

Yes and no, I’m guilty of this one. It’s not the topic that is tiring, it’s how the story is written, I recently finished a 72 episode novel about all the clichés, teen pregnancy, love triangles, dramatic comings with the law, but overall I really enjoyed reading it due to how skilled the author was. I don’t think the blame is with the topic itself, but the writer.
