Top must haves for when you're reading/writing a episode story

  • Character Development ~ I love seeing my character changing it just doesn’t have to be positive, it can also be negative
  • Choices That Matter ~ I like to see what I choose for a choice affect something because then I just feel like "What was that for? But I’m weird.
  • Amazing Grammar ~ Everybody makes grammar mistakes, no big deal. Just try to make your grammar neat as possible
  • Engaging Scenes ~ I like to be engaged in a story, that way I’m all like "THIS STORY IS THE BOMB!!! I NEED MORE!!!
  • Good Episode Ender, to make me come back for more. ~ I love a good cliffhanger, it keeps me on the edge of my seat wanting more.
  • Not a lot of author notes ~ Author notes really annoy me, use them when needed
  • Have an option to customize our character after we know them, {Personal} ~ *Maybe it’s just me, but if I have a best friend in the plot, and she is a backstabber I don’t wanna make her look like a supermodel *
  • Good Plot ~ Everyone needs a good plot to write a GOOD story, that is a must
  • Good Directing ~ Basic directing is well…basic. It wouldn’t want me leaving for more.
  • Emotion ~ I like to feel something when really reading a story, that way your story is coming to life.

I hope this helped, I hope you got the idea.

Oh and too add also, this is more of a personal opinion but I love stories where they mc doesn’t fall for the love interest right away.

Yes I totally agree because some stories the mc falls for the love interest when she literally just met him/her like a week ago. But I mean it can kinda be a love at first sight type of thing :woman_shrugging::joy:

Yesss I agree 100% with you! okay this might sound a little cliche but I really like it when the love interest has a best friend and then the mc’s best friend ends up liking the love interest best friend (hopefully that all made since :joy:).

A plot that advances not too slowly. I like a big event that effects the storyline every chapter, or two if there’s a lot going on

I like when the mc doesn’t fall for her/his love interest right away and visa versa. It makes it more exciting😋

A loveable and interesting main character!! I can not stress this enough, I honestly hate main characters that think they’re all bad ass because they’re rude 24/7 and slaps the love interests over the most smallest things.

I agree with what’s been said above

I’d also like to add option to play as a male!
I love reading / playing as a male! I’m more likely to continue a story if it’s from a male perspective >.<

Also tbh I love it when the love interest is a bad boy lmao. I also love it iin romance stories when the two main characters fall for eachother’s personality first before their looks.
And I don’t really like stories where the main character slaps the love interest because it’s “badass” and I dislike stories that have token POC or LGBT characters.

Good grammar and directing. Also good dialogue and storyline. If the plot is all over the place, I’m exiting out of the story as quick as lightning mcqueen
