What are the fanfic words?

There are certain words that always make me think, "Ah, yes, I am reading fanfic." They are not bad words in and of themselves, but they seem to occur more often in fanfic than in any other prose I read. Here are a few off the top of my head:

* Ghost, used as a verb. "Jack's fingers ghosted over Daniel's skin."

* Cant. "Kara stood, canted in the doorway, and looked Sharon up and down."

* Ruck. "Kaidoh's hair was rumpled and his shirt rucked up over his belly."

Got any more?

eta: Just to be clear, I'm not talking about badfic and its tropes. Generally, I see these words in good fiction.
