* Despite gaining a fair amount of praise, Steve Worek, creator (and mostly unseen co-star) of ''Film/TheRockyHorrorPictureShow'' fan film "Bedroom Scenes" generally scorns any discussion of it. The theme song for the upcoming sequel, sung to the tune of 'Science Fiction Double Feature,' urges viewers to forget that "Bedroom Scenes" exists.

* [=Jabberwocky1996=] was so embarrassed by everything he wrote before ''FanFic/TheThingBeneathTheSea'' that he deleted all of them. He's especially ashamed by his ''Literature/HarryPotter'' fanfics due to the poor writing quality, random OCs and due to his lack of knowledge of the franchise (not helped by the fact that he's a non-fan). Suffice it to say, none of his early fics exist anymore.

* ''Fanfic/AmazingFantasy'' has an in-universe example with All Might and his Christmas album, which he and his friend David Shield recorded while they were both strapped for cash and drunk from a night of partying. Because of this, he only allowed it to be distributed in America and recorded in English, far away from his huge fanbase in Japan. Izuku started learning English just to listen to it once he discovered its existence.


* This is how Blaze, the author of the original ''Fanfic/TheConversionBureau'' story, sees his work. The idea behind the story was to explain his own personal hypothesis as to why Equestria has no humans (with a little bit of personal WishFulfillment tossed in), but his inexperience as a writer [[GoneHorriblyWrong made the story]] come across as incredibly {{anvilicious}}ly misanthropic. He gained his own personal {{Hatedom}} and [[NeverLiveItDown an accidental reputation]] as a MisanthropeSupreme, so much so that he dropped the story entirely. Later on, Chatoyance, with her more radical approach to the premise and penchant for causing {{Flame War}}s, far overshadowed him, which allowed his side of the fic's meta backstory to become more noticed and the hate to ease up.

* There was once a Sonic babyfic by Aerogreymon8.0, titled Eggman's New Invention, about Eggman inventing a weapon that turns male people into babies and the female characters having to take care of them. It got taken down somewhere between November 2005 and early in '06. When contacted (that is, while he even went by the aforementioned penname; unknown whether he changed his name or deactivated his account altogether since then) he stated that he was rather self-conscious about it.
* ''Fanfic/MyInnerLife'' appears to be this for Link's Queen. She now derides it as something stupid she did when she was younger, and hates talking about it.
* Creator/CoriFalls apparently laughs at her old stories now.

* Author razzamatazz73 actually ''changed her penname'' because she was so embarrassed by her old fanfics. She even mentions on her [[http://www.fanfiction.net/u/699942/ profile]] that her general rule of thumb is to ignore just about everything published before 2007. Her newer material is noticeably better, considering her rather cliched first fics and later ''Film/StarTrek'' and ''VideoGame/FusionFall'' successes. Her review responses to her older stories are particularly amusing, as she usually begins all responses by apologizing to the reader.
