Big things are happening on TV Tropes! New admins, new designs, fewer ads, mobile versions, beta testing opportunities, thematic discovery engine, fun trope tools and toys, and much more - Learn how to help here and discuss here.
These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
YMMV: Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser
Squick: One of Fafhrd's more useful girlfriends is Kreeshka. She's a Ghoul who he captured in battle. Ghouls in Nehwon are basically nudist humans with normal bones but transparent skin, organs, et cetera, so except for some cool lighting effects they look exactly like animated skeletons (And yes, Fafhrd does ask "how do you see?". He even gets an answer.) Some people seem to be disturbed by thinking of the visual aspects of their sexual relationship. For some reason the description of seeing her chew, swallow, and digest a piece of raw meat that remains visible the entire time doesn't seem to faze anyone.
Also mentioned is that female Ghouls at least, wear make-up so you can see the parts you can't see normally.
Weird Al Effect: On both ends — it itself was intended to mock earlier conventions of a more staid fantasy genre; as the genre became more and more free-wheeling and the Conan-style fantasy novels it was lampooning faded from view, it ended up getting many humorous references from elsewhere itself.
