a reply to: Raven_Heart Everybody remembers that word
Also the story behind is awesome. It is the name of hell strong beverage, used for drinking contests in the story. Hmmm... I do not have an idea where Hispaniola comes from, probably someone else will get it faster than me. Anyway I'll think about it, it sounds like woman's nickname...

Sorry Raven, didn't know that one! Not one I had read, sadly
Looked it up because I couldn't just leave it at not knowing. Good choice, but not one I'd read.. here's one in that same vein..

Does The Rachel ring a bell for anyone? (classic)

How about Harmoniums? (sci-fi)

Great thread, OP-- hope it continues!
