interhouse-fest jargon
Hi. I've never looked through the interhouse-fest before, and I don't come to livejournal often (it's regrettably easy to confuse me here, lol). I was looking through all the prompts, whatever, and was wondering if there's a link on your forum that explains all the jargon. Like, what a squick is, and so forth. I realise I'm too late for prompting or submitting but I really want to know what all this stuff means because I'm definitely going to be reading a lot of the submissions when they come out.

Re: interhouse-fest jargon
Hiya, just stumbled across your message here, and it's about 20 days after the fact, but... you can find good definitions of "squick" on urbandictionary.com, particularly definitions 3 and 4, which I'll paste here for you...

3. Squick: Fanfiction/Fandom term. A pairing or situation that one finds utterly repulsive.

Example: Kiddy porn squicks me in the worst way.

4. Squick: noun and verb. An instinctive revulsion to something, a combination of "squirm" and "ick". Used in BDSM subculture

Example: You can whip her all night long and she'll ask for me, but belts squick her completely.

Urbandicitonary.com would be a good place to look up any other fandom terms that you don't understand. Here's a few to check out, off the top of my head: chan, scat, watersports, non-con, dub-con, etc.

Generally, by putting "Squicks" on the form, they are asking people to put the things they absolutely don't want to see in a fulfillment, and most people list a lot of sexual related things they don't want in a gift-fic, many of which relate to BDSM culture.
