I did not know what to expect when I started reading this thread, but I like how you actually included the language thing.
I'm fairly native to German like Ahiku (my dialect is just weird enough that many Germans don't understand) but I didn't quite experience it the same way. Actually, to me it depends a lot what language I started a story with or which language I'm used from watching/reading the canon.

And that includes the smut. If I'm used to think of a story in German, I'm fine with fanfictions in German, but it sounds all wrong to me if they are English in my head.

... basically though, I find most German things awkward because the internet just offers way more information/subs in English. (I prefer watching anime in Japanese with subs. I rarely like any dubs be they English or German...)

Smut in general though... I don't read much, I don't like most words in either language and most stories just are too vulgar for my taste it kind of robs the flow of a story... to me at least. The smut stories I like are (to me, again) somewhat like pieces of art, because they manage to balance getting the point across without verbally over-painting the scene and yet... barely use any of the very graphic descriptions.
It's what I try to do when I get to write smut in an RP. (Which... I don't think I've ever done officially.)

And on a completely different approach on the story. Good smut (personal opinion, though) always involves a couple that is of more or less equal importance. I don't like the whole seme/uke thing. One being timid and shy and the other one strong. I just... like healthy relationships opposed to destructive ones. I'm not saying that a healthy one can't have problems or trouble. But with the seme/uke thing... one is always dependent on the other in some way and the give and take just doesn't seem balanced. But that may be just me.

It's why I like Shion and Nezumi though, it may seem at first that Nezumi is the stronger one and handles all, but Shion gives back so much. And he wants to be Nezumi's equal too, not just the little duckling needing/wanting all the help.
