Arabella's Lady Garden

(Anonymous) 2015-07-22 10:12 pm (UTC)(link)
I'm writing a fic, and there's a section written from Jonathan's POV where I want to make a passing reference to her quim. Would that term squick people out, do you think? I like the word, it's a bit archaic, but it's widely used here in England today, as it was in his time. Any strong views? Pussy seems twee, and vagina jyst doesn't sound much like Jonathan's style.

Thanks in advance!

I'd say go for it, Anon! Seems appropriate and I don't think it's particularly squicky. It rhymes with "prim", after all!

Incidentally, I got curious and found some truly hilarious/disturbing slang names here: http://io9.com/two-timelines-of-slang-for-genitalia-from-1250-through-1157205966
