I'm reading a fic where the two main characters ought to be about forty, probably, if the Doctor Who reference they just made was any useful timestamp
but they sound weirdly young
and I'm not sure what I'm picking up on that's giving me that impression.

so now I'm going to keep on reading
just to try and narrow down what pings me.

at least when the writer obviously cannot imagine a world pre smartphone there's something specific to point at...

sometimes word choice and grammar choice really show an age - i get thrown out of a LOT of stucky fics over that (speech patterns across canons vary greatly, but at no world should they sound like they spent the past five years on tumblr)
