A '''Lime''' is a {{Fan Fic}} in which characters will act sexually towards each other, but do not actually engage in any kind of explicit sexuality--basically, the fanfic equivalent of soft-core porn. Once a somewhat common term, it's now less frequently seen, though by no means extinct.

Can be used as a noun and an adjective interchangeably: "It's a Lime story" and "It's a Lime" are functionally equivalent. Readers venturing into sex scenes for the first time may see a fic as a {{lemon}} (A related term, meaning a sexually explicit Fan fic), while a more experienced reader may consider it a Lime.

The term was originally specific to the {{anime}} fanfiction community, although by the early-middle 2000s it had spread to other fandoms alongside the term {{lemon}}. The origin of the term is obscure, but the most common etymology trances it back to simply being a complementary term to lemon; with there being, at one time, an entire element of a [[http://ppc.wikia.com/wiki/Citrus_Scale "Citrus Scale"]] with various fruit code names.

A FanFic that hints at explicit sexuality, but does not actually show it; "softcore" vs. "hardcore". Where {{Lemon}} would be the equivalent of an "NC-17" or "X" film, Lime is a soft "R". Lemon is the Spice Channel, whereas Lime is more like the ''Red Shoe Diaries''.

Also known as "artificial lemon flavouring".

Generally the sexual activity may simply be heavy-duty making out that jumps to the morning after, or in some cases sex described very mildly - not necessarily IKEAErotica, although it's an option, but close. Most Lemon writers start off with Lime fics and work their way up, [[IncrediblyLamePun frequently one-handed.]]

As a bit of trivia, it's worth noting that limes are not less sour than lemons. However, they ''do'' contain less Vitamin C.
