Scenes that made you drop a story immediately

Sometimes stories just have scenes that are so terrible that it makes you stop reading. Usually, terrible introduction scenes are most likely to do this, since I think that reflects on the story.

Have you ever dropped a story because of a scene?
What was one time where a single scene made you drop a story immediately?

I usually drop a story for bad introductions too, like “This is my first story” or “Sorry for bad English”. I also drop it if they describe everything, like the MC’s best friends life since their 6th birthday party on 7th June 2010 at 5:19. Not to forget bad grammar, spelling and no punctuation whatsoever. And this might not apply to a lot of people, but I drop a story once I see romance-

you ever just reading the description of an amazon story and be like “hmm thats pretty interesting” but then it says ‘reverse harem’ at the end and you just have to throw it all away

Long introductions, going through each character and their personalites. Also, stories where we have to customize your family, friends and your dog’s family -

I once read a book that my aunt gave me where the MC spent a whole chapter complaining about how one of her boobs was smaller than the other to her 10-year-old sister

Honestly once romance gets involved on Episode I’m usually out becuase so few stories handle it well
The best on I’ve seen so far is probably Positively Princess, but the motivations made no sense for any of the love interests and the emo villain’s son prince was just unbareable

If a story starts with the MCs (often “diverse”) bestie forcing them to go partying I just can’t do it🤦🏻‍♀️

Yeah, you ever notice how the bestie or one of the love interests is always “diverse” but you have to customize the MC to make her anything but white?

This doesn’t apply to all stories, of course, but most.

Yeah, and the one diverse side character has no personality besides being crazy and “fun”, or if it’s a li he’s often the “bad boy”:thinking:
