I'm pretty sure your interpretation is indeed the correct interpretation of Creator Backlash. The actual trope here would, IMO, probably be Old Shame, although these sound like minor enough regrets that troping them seems a bit silly.

Yeah, those look like Old Shame entries to me.

I agree that itís Old Shame and the entries should thus be reclassified.

Are we sure Creator Backlash isn't about flaws the creator sees in their work? Otherwise the only difference between it and Old Shame is "popularity", which can be hard to ascertain sometimes.

That might be worth doing. I didn't initially think Old Shame fitted the entries, but that's possibly because these entries are minor (parts of the work) rather than about the work as a whole. So, I may have been looking at the trope on the wrong scale.


How well does it match the trope?
