This would make for an entertaining story. You have an animal trying to point to the killer amongst them, but everyone else is trying to figure it out, ignoring the animal. To where the animal just flips them off, and leaves them to die.

Do the impossible, see the invisible. 

Involve all kinds of embarrassing medical detail you found about them in the smut fick.
For example:
They have hermerroids? Spend entire chapter describing them. Then involve them in the act itself.

If they won't kill me based on what I write, something terribly smutty and terribly written. Then they have to read it to make sure it's finished and have to go through some terribly terrible writing that makes them feel awkward that I am watching them read it.

For us it wouldn't be a genre, but it would be third person writing. Our style simply does not translate to third person at all and it'd be like writing with your non dominant hand for us.

We're sure that we could get decent at it, but why spread ourselves that thin? We want to focus on what we're good at and improve in that regard.

With that said though, writing weird stuff isn't actually outside of our comfort zone. It'd be quite a nice break from writing reality.
Eh, I love writing weird stuff too, but there's 'weird', and then there is... whatever the hell that was

Yep, I don’t like writing romance or adventure with an op MC and I don’t like writing action scenes but now that I think about it, it might be a nice break from my usual story

That's if I write it. I still got a superhero highschool one (1/6 of it is done), two different isekai, The Fisher King, That one with no chapters on it, another hero one, and the one I'm currently working on. But I can, however, make a reference to it in the one I'm working on.

And also lets not forget that this story somehow leads up to the reason why he's holding the gun to your head in the first place. Perhaps a fortune teller told him that he would find out about his unknown ancestry if he just... held a gun to your head and made you write something out of your comfort zone. ANd this was how he found the truth.
