Are you seriously suggesting royal tea by way of Mackenzie Phillips?
I can get behind the idea of it simply being a pun, but we're a context-juggling audience. Keys and gates, trains and cigars.
Personally, I think there's nothing Electra
-fying about this update. It's just a pun for the start of an elaborate Tea Ceremony, not the beginning of an orgy.
However, the disgust factor with the incest taboo is a learned biological response, and also makes rational sense due to the all the issues inbreeding causes, but Erfworld doesn't operate that way. Units are just popped, and the parent/child relationship is mostly a figurative one, maybe even exclusively a royal thing. (Do we have any instances of a non-royal parent-child relationship yet?) If it's just a royal thing, Earth history provides many examples of royal inbreeding, so Erfworld may be no different in that regard. Olive the Hippiemancer's suggestions regarding Wanda sharing the bed with her and Tommy seems to indicate that it's not unheard-of, and might actually be pretty common.
