* Occasionally used in ''Literature/TheRedVixenAdventures'' depending on who's point of view the scene is focusing on. When Rolas and the Red Vixen encounter one of her enemies, she's noted as using "A short, very human, curse word." Scenes from Alinadar's perspective just have Ali letting out a "Fuck".

* In the children's fantasy novel ''Literature/TheMidnightFolk'': Whenever the former sailor Roper Bilges uses a profane verb, which he does often, it's obscured by verbing the nearest relevant noun.
-->'It sounded like a young jackdaw got down the chimney again.'\\
'I'll jackdaw them jackdaws one of these days,' he said, 'if they keep on jackdawing me.'

** The same author's ''Literature/TheKaneChronicles'' has a character distinguish between "cursing" and "cussing"-amongst magic users, that's rather a significant difference.

* Creator/NimbusLlewelyn tends to use this as part of a SophisticatedAsHell writing style, particularly in ''Fanfic/ChildOfTheStorm'' and its sequels, often alluding to extensive foul language rather than using it. With the exception of the occasional PrecisionFStrike.

* In ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10800038/1/Waiting-for-one-s-arrival Waiting for one's arrival]]'', Tetsu Tohsaka wasn't happy to learn Luna Lovegood was bullied by her housemates, leading to an altercation.
-->'''Dumbledore:''' What kind of an 'altercation', Filius?\\
'''Flitwitck:''' Some very loud and very vicious words, some rather pointed insinuations about their ancestry and the sexual orientation of their family pets, and a truly remarkable amount of colourful ways of describing both them and their current situation. ''(beat)'' I believe Miss Lovegood took notes.

** Colonel Janice Qua, commanding a Moab Confederacy bird-of-prey, listens in as Orion pirates demand that the freighter ''Wuddship'' ([[spoiler:actually a Starfleet heavy cruiser flying a false IFF]]) surrender.
--->"The reply was a male voice, [[ForeignCussWord some Scandinavian language]] and, according to the translator readout, described the various ingredients making up the Orion matron and [[YourMom the things her mother had mated with]] in decidedly unhygienic terms. [[PassThePopcorn Amused, Qua saved it to a PADD for future reference.]]"
