I like your image choice, and the implication she's reading the sort of thing you like.

Ooooh, and I have to say, that era and that style of clothing makes a fantastic setting for that kind of super fucked-up fic

I'm with you, OP.
I also just want to write messed up non-con fic but will occasionally write fluff if my muse takes me.
I always felt a bit strange about this and am amazed by authors who just embrace their mainly non-con dark fics.

1) stress / life issues going on

2) hormonal changes (are you female?)

3) you're just in another place or phase of your interests

did anything change in your RL?

Or maybe your brain just wanted something more intense. I know vanilla usually has to work for it or be written especially well to get there. I imagine dark stuff goes right for the intensity (I have read darkfic/non-con but it wasn't an intensity I enjoyed.)

I feel you, I went from fluff tot noncon.

TBH I sometimes like reading some fucked-up fics, but for the most part I'm happier reading more vanilla-ish smut, heh.

I like you and I like the picture you chose for your secret, OP. I go back and forth between fluffy vanilla writing and darker, hardcore stuff. Not sure why and it used to make me feel hella weird when I was a younger, but it's not hurting anyone IRL and I've just learned to embrace it.

I'm in a similar situation, OP! All the fanfic smut I ever wrote was fairly mild and pretty vanilla. It's only in the past few years I've gotten into dubcon. (Mostly reading it, though I've dabbled in writing it a little.) I don't think it's that fucked up or dark, but it's still a bit odd how my tastes have changed. Maybe it's like that one anon suggested and it's a hormonal thing, I don't know.

People got a little harsh in this thread. They're not entirely wrong, but... a bit harsh. I agree insofar as I think it's a shame to crave adventure, but to be so resigned and unassertive you've talked yourself out of even attempting it. In my experience, adventures mostly happen to people who put themselves out there, not to people who've given up on the possibility before they've even started.

SA as above. I forgot to say great picture choice! :)

I went the other way! For a long time, all I wrote was dubcon or noncon or at least violent sexual stuff, then one day I started writing plot-focused gen instead. When I looked back, the one thing I noticed is that I had always tried to get a plot into even the most PWP of fics, so I guess that was in my id all along.
