I can't necro the same thread on sufficient velocity so I remade it here. "it occurred to me that there are lots of fics I used to think were amazing that I now don't. Not because they've changed, but because I have. This is the thread for fics you enjoyed once, but now when you go back and look at them find that they aren't good." For me it'd be pretty much all web novels with the gems of the gems as exceptions. For fics, it would be ones with insta OPness and edginess, bashing of suddenly 2D canon characters, oh and The Spider, gotta hate the spider.
