No one should be able to use the word "loins" in fanfic. I'm sorry but no.

Unless you're dyslexic and mean "lions" in which case I forgive you.

"Loins" is bad, yes, but I don't think anything can compare to the description of Scully's "elixir of love" I read in some fanfic the other day. Eeeuw! ;-)

No. No, they shouldn't. Although I forgive loins a little more easily than I forgive "nether regions."

I will add, per a recently-read story, that volition and violation are not really the same thing.

Which reminds me, on a non-smutty tangent; neither are "voila" and "viola".

That one makes me weep, either with laughter or with tears for the state of the world, every damn time. *g*

I think I've been to the Nether Regions. Isn't it somewhere near Scunthorpe?

Anyway. Addendum: Also banned are core, lave, manjuices (particularly of the dribbling variety), any made-up word which combines a name with a noun and then appends "unique" to it (i.e. unique Spikesmell or whatever)

The volition/violation thing is just alarming. I might start doing things of my own violation.

Eeek

I don't like "center". Her "center". It sounds like an information booth or a place where trains depart.

peace to us all.

"Center"... well, that would explain the funky smells and sights of the Transbay Transit Center. *grin*

No more loins! Except, yes, for pork tenderloin. Yummy.

You're a sick woman. I like that about you.

I'd also be forgiving if they were talking about something tasty like pork loins or tenderloins. *g* I obviously need to get some food in my system ASAP since it's all I'm thinking about.
