Worst Story on Wattpad is a four-chapter story written by arcticstars and posted on (you guessed it) Wattpad, dedicated to lampooning every common trope on the site.

Average ordinary girl Summersberry Applewinter Newtonsmith is the new girl at an unnamed high school. While there, she meets the mysterious British Lachowski, a handsome British boy who also happens to be a hot vampire. Her life only gets weirder from there.

Worst Story on Wattpad parodies the following, clichéd tropes:

  • Abduction Is Love: Summersberry doesn't care that Alwolfo has kidnapped her because he's rich and hot.
  • Abusive Parents: Summersberry's parents sell her for booze money. The buyer is hot, though, so it's OK.
  • Aerith and Bob: Courtney stands out simply because she has a normal name compared to literally every other character. It's an early indicator of her true nature.
  • Affably Evil: Alwolfo, who kidnaps Summersberry, then invites her to the party he's holding to celebrate her kidnapping and offers her plenty of outfit options.
  • Alcoholic Parent: Summersberry's parents are constantly shown getting drunk, and even sell her for booze money.
  • All Girls Want Bad Boys: Several of Summersberry's love interests fall into this category.
  • Alpha Bitch: Averted; Courtney is a Nice Girl, but the protagonist refuses to see her as anything but the slutty evil cheerleader trope, much to her annoyance.

  • Arbitrary Skepticism: Summersberry is willing to believe in vampires and werewolves, but not lesbians.
  • Attempted Rape: Lester the Molester and Herbert the Pervert exist just so Alwolfo can save Summersberry from molestation and/or rape.
  • Arranged Marriage: Summersberry is put into one by her parents so they can pay for more booze. Naturally, it turns out to be a Perfectly Arranged Marriage.
  • Camp Gay: Summersberry's brother Susan is a mishmash of every camp gay stereotype. He's faking it so girls tell him intimate stuff.
  • Cliché Storm: invoked Parodied; the fic uses every (Wattpad) cliche in the book and pokes fun at them.
  • Did Not Do the Bloody Research: British, who mostly speaks in stereotypes befitting of his name.
  • Dude Magnet: Summersberry is chased by a throng of men during the climax, including British, Alwolfo, 2Mas, her geography teacher, and the entirety of One Direction.

  • Foreshadowing: Courtney is the only character to not follow any of the tropes associated with teen fiction. She turns out to be a member of a group that arrests people for using said cliches.
  • Hidden Depths: In order to prevent their story from getting shut down, the characters have to prove they have these. Among other things, British reveals he's a Gossip Girl fan and wants to be a househusband, Alwolfo reveals he likes wearing dresses, and Summersberry's mother reveals she's been alcohol-free for decades, only faking her alcoholism for perks from her support group.
  • Hide Your Lesbians: Lesbians don't exist in teen fiction, which is why Summersberry doesn't believe it when she hears Courtney has a girlfriend.
  • Fetishized Abuser: British and Alwolfo are both assholes, but Summersberry sees past those "flaws".
  • I'm Not Pretty: The protagonist claims she's an ugly piece of work, despite having a conventionally attractive description.
  • Jerkass: Alwolfo is unambiguously a dick. Summersberry still loves him.
  • Lampshade Hanging: Expect every trope to get a lampshade hung on it in one way or another.
  • Last Request: Alwolfo lies to Courtney that he's a cancer patient and his last wish is to make out with her. She's understandably peeved when she learns the truth.
  • Leet Speak: 2Mas only communicates in poorly written text talk.
  • Little Black Dress: What Summersberry wears to Alwolfo's party.
  • Magical Minority Person: Xing is the token Asian character and a walking hodgepodge of various Asian stereotypes. She's actually Australian.
  • Mary-Sue Hunter: The Teen Fiction Police arrest anyone who overuses the regular cliches found in teen fiction, Sue tropes included.
  • Meaningful Name:
    • British is, well, British.
    • Alwolfo is (obviously) a werewolf.
  • The Mole: Courtney turns out to be a member of the Teen Fiction Police.
  • Only Sane Man: Courtney is the only character not swept up in horrible writing tropes. It turns out that she specifically came to the story because it was so cliche.
  • Parody: Of common tropes found in Wattpad stories and teen fiction in general.
  • Parody Sue: Summersberry is a parody of the typical wish fulfilment protagonist found in teen literature.
  • Shout-Out: Xing may be a reference to Kirk Lazarus, being an Australian actor playing a stereotype-ridden role that requires them to pretend to be a different ethnicity from what they actually are.
  • Surprisingly Realistic Outcome: Alwolfo kidnaps Summersberry at one point. While she brushes off the dubious morality of this because he's rich and hot, in the end he's arrested for kidnapping her.
  • Take That!:
    • The story as a whole is one to all of the common tropes found in Wattpad stories and teen fiction as a whole.
    • The Teen Fiction Police apparently put the kibosh on Midnight Sun (2020), and in the end go off to stop a sequel to Hush, Hush from happening.
  • Teacher/Student Romance: One of the boys trying to get with Summersberry in the climax is her geography teacher.
  • Vampires Are Sex Gods: Parodied; British is a vampire largely regarded as hot by the protagonist, but as far as we know she's the only one who's openly attracted to him (her misconceptions regarding his friendship with Courtney notwithstanding).
  • Vampire-Werewolf Love Triangle: Summersberry's main love interests are the hot vampire British and the hot werewolf Alwolfo. Naturally, they fight each other at one point.
  • Werewolf Theme Naming: Alwolfo Wolfsbane Bonowolf. Yes, that's actually his name.
  • Who Names Their Kid "Dude"?: Summersberry's mother admits that she was probably drunk while coming up with her name. Doesn't explain the names of most of the other characters, though.
  • Wild Teen Party: Alwolfo holds one to celebrate his kidnapping of Summersberry.
