call it Canadian prudishness
Synopsis: A Blood Fever Coda, in drabble form using these words: heaving, throbbing, member, channel, muskiness, maleness, nectar, juices, plunging, mounds, sheath. All right, it's really a drabble and a quarter, consider it the Canadian conversion rate. But I claim bonus points for using the word shaft.
Explanation: Part of a Circle One Collective challenge to use the words above (all NC-17 classic clichés) in a G-rated drabble. The Circle One Collective: LA Koehler, Liz the Whiz, Briar Rose, and Samzmom.
Disclaimer: Do I really need one? Okay, the characters belong to Paramount. And they can have the mushrooms too as a little gift from me.

throbbing. Well he'd show her.
"Neelix," he shouted. "Did you know B'Elanna loves mushrooms on her
……yep, that's it. It's over. And yes, I do call that an ending.
