Re: Fanfiction themes that creep you out.
But by the same token, people's tastes and whether or not they change and what they change to, are phenominally variable.

My musical tastes have essentially not altered since I was a child and the 1980s put me off it pretty much altogether and still compose 98% soundtracks from cartoons/anime and video games (and basically only the combat music at that).
(I read a lot of fanfic in part because I cannot afford either the space or the cost of fuelling my regular reading any other way. If you have a fairly large fandom, you can generally find the gems among the chaff - especially if there is some level of prescreening like and Fimfiction where the signal-to-noise ratio is considerable higher than on, say fanfiction.net.)
I remain as I was - an megalomanical starship-obessed outsider1 that divorced humanity at age five and never looked back... (Though as an example of a sane person (or, arguably, a person at all...) I may not be the best example.)
1That's the concept, not the D&D creature type.
