TEA evil can wait

This isn't any kind of pronouncement

Really it isn't, because this is not in "ministrations" territory. (I remind you at this time that the word "ministrations" is banned from use in fanfic in the Antennarepublic. On pain of.... I dunno; do it and I'll think of something nasty.) I am suspecting that it is mere personal squick. But um, well...

I have to say that the verb "engulf" has started to make me uncomfortable. To be honest, it has moved past merely non-erotic and is fast approaching nerve-wracking. Like, the image I get when I read it is of octopus arms, pale and purple, writhing and pulling the prey in toward an implacable mouth. And then I say, no, wrong! it's all about flooding and overflowing and that isn't a happy good-touch place either. At least for me.

So maybe, if I asked nicely, you (the generic you) could consider other, less cephalopoidal verbs. Thank you for listening. Eek.
