Why do people insist on writing fanfics involving necrophilia? Or bestiality? I'm really, really hard to squick, even incest won't do it if it's well-written - but where is the attraction in writing about sex with dead people or animals? Just in the HP fandom, I know of (and flatly refuse to read) two stories including necrophilia, one Harry/Sirius/Dead!James (that one's quite infamous, I think), and one Harry/Hermione where one of them was dead. Can anyone explain this to me?

It's a big contest to write the squickiest fic possible. Well, okay, some people actually like these things (ew!), but mostly, people're writing these things for shock factor. Nothing else.

So, d'you wanna read my underage!Ginny/Crookshanks/dead!Ron/Filch fic?

Matt, please tell me you're joking. Please tell me you didn't actually write that.

I'm joking. I didn't actually write that, I swear.

It's all about pushing the envelope.
