But spicy stories, like spicy food, may not necessarily be
to everyone's taste  :-)

Pretty much.  In fact, I strongly suspect that the combination of the
bad 'amateur writing style' of a lot of fanfiction and the bad 'porn
needs no plot except as the contrivance to get to the sex scene' of
a lot of porn means that slashfic suffers even more badly under
Sturgeon's Law ("90% of everything is crap") than most other
amateur fiction.

I shall bear that in mind.  I've already done some poking around,
and it seemed to post okay for the September End of Month Reviews.
