Squick FactorA fanfiction reader's squick factor is his/her tolerance point when reading obscene, irreverant or otherwise objectionable material. For fic authors, it would be the point at which they draw the line at describing such activities for fear of appearing to be perverts or mentally deranged. If you are reading a fic and you come to a scene that makes you say or think 'Eww Gross!', you have just come up on your squick factor. See 'Fan Rated for Adults Only', 'Pornography', 'Smut', 'Rapefic', 'Caveat Lector'.
