How to make a story popular?

I was just wondering how to make a story popular without direct advertising, I don't think my new chapters show up on the news feed.
I'd like it if you can read my story before giving advice! ^_^

Make an interesting storyline, good adjectives and ups and downs in the story. I'm currently writing a story called Home sweet home where a young girl finds a dragon on her pavement and decides to take care of it- I am using all of this advice and the story is going great so far.

I'll make sure to read it! ^_^
I don't know what makes a storyline 'interesting,'
It'll be good if you could read my story and tell me what I'm lacking

Making a storyline interesting is where you don't just go, "She found a box. She opened it. Found a dragon. Took care of it. The end."
You basically describe your protagonist actions throghoughly and add many descriptions. I'm pleased you're taking my advice and if I have spare time I'll make sure to read your story ='.'=

From what I can see, you'll need these tropes...

Female protagonist
Famous character X something
Colorful images

That's all I think of now.

My story is from the perspective of a male character, but there will be female characters with a great significance on the story.
I don't exactly know what famous character x is, may you explain it to me?
I'll think about doing colourful images, it took me a while to draw the cover photo so I'm not sure if I'll be able to fit images in all the chapters

Thank See More▼

@Cory_the_Shitposter My story already has 11 chapters and 105 reads, I don't think I can change the character to become a female. However, I may write a new story with a female lead.

Take it from me... I'm afraid you'll have to pick either artistic integrity or popularity if the protagonist is originally male.

The Famous character X thing is a shipping kind of thing. The trope is that a known character get uncanonically shipped to a character, often a character that doesn't exist in the canon universe.

Sorry, but from what I see, nobody See More▼
