Picky.

There are things I only like in fantasy because in real life they’d be scary.

There are things I only like in fantasy because in real life they’d be unsanitary.

And then there are things I only like in fantasy because in real life there would be sensory-squicky things involved, along with the things that I like.

(Is there a better word for things like that than “sensory sensitivities”? Because that’s kind of a tongue-twister.)

And now I am going to stop imagining things that feel gross and grossing myself out for no reason.

(I clicked through to find other works by the author of a fic I liked, and sadly only one of them was at all similar and it also included sensory-squicky things. But I read it, because “Ehh, close enough”, and it was ok.)
