I have my completed chapters up over there but the more that I look at it, and see nothing but Kdrama fanfictions, the more I am realizing that maaaaybe its readership doesn't align with my hopes. Which would be any readers at all. Unless I swung on over into the Omegaverse but that is so not happening.

Welcome to Royal Road. Welcome Home~
Best of wishes in all your endeavors.
Thank you for the well wishes, I am really enjoying the warm reception! The fact that there is an active and open forum is very refreshing! It seems like readers also give feedback which is so excellent. I know I have spots where I need to tighten my story and I am not very far into it yet so I look forward to that very much!
Welcome to Royal Road. Used to be on Wattpad and I know your story will garner much more attention here. Fantasy is quite popular so there will be a good audience for your work. Cinn, she who works wonders with data, has compiled a beginner's guide https://www.royalroad.com/forums/thread/111469 which is a must read.
Hope you enjoy being here and that many readers find and and fall in love with your story. Good luck.
Hello! Glad you're here! RR really is a wonderful place with lots of wonderful stories! You definitely found a good place to be!
I've been thinking about cross posting my story onto Wattpad because in my story, there's this 18-year-old demigoddess who gets into a more-or-less love triangle with two gods.... It *feels* like I could post it on Wattpad, but then again, I want to play it straight the way it ought to turn out, not the way the trope dictates it should turn out. I strongly dislike love triangles so there's no way I'm actually writing one of those.
I also strongly dislike how they took down the forums on Wattpad so there's no information.... except me just hearing how terrible it is which I'm believing more and more, day by day. This is definitely a good place though!
It's super exciting when your first fiction gets approved. Have lots of fun here!
Welcome! I can confirm RR is way better thank Inkitt & Fiction press too. 😅 Seriously though, it's a friendly & helpful community for the most part (esp in the forums) and even the less popular genres can get decent visibility. Though fantasy is popular here so I don't think you need to worry to much about that.
I hope you enjoy RR and your fiction finds an audience.
I also post on Wattpad and you really have to arrange yourself with the fact that you write for a niche if it isn't (toxic) romance.
What is the problem with Vella? We don't have Vella in Germany (yet? who knows) and I was at least interested.
