Qu'est-ce que c'est?

I was looking at a list of new stories by an author whose X-Files fanfiction I used to enjoy (though she hasn't written any in years). I noticed that the warnings for one story, in a fandom I don't read, included, among many things commonly warned about, "claiming".

I'm a little afraid to ask, but: what's that?

I think in some vampire mythology, a vampire can "claim" a human--it's like mating, I think? Just a guess . . .

I think one of the people involved was a supernatural being of some kind, but I don't know what kind. So you may be right!

Hmmm... my guess? Marking someone with spunk? I have no idea why that, in specific, would need to be warned for.

Well, you never know what will squick people. Perhaps there's a subset of people who find that particularly squicky (although I wouldn't have thought they'd find it more squicky than some of the other things that were being warned for!)
