Imagine Loki being your boyfriend and getting into an argument with the other Avengers because they worry about your safety. “Listen, if you dare to hurt Y/N, we will-” “What? Imprison me? Because that worked out so well last time, right?” “Y/N is our-” “Y/N is mine! She belongs with me and I will not let any of you pitiful creatures tear us apart”
My mom did something similar when I was little, she’d always tell me to say “bread and butter”… from Wikipedia:
“Bread and butter” is a superstitious blessing or charm, typically said by young couples or friends walking together when they are forced to separate by an obstacle, such as a pole or another person. By saying the phrase, the bad luck of letting something come between them is thought to be averted. Both walkers must say the phrase, and if they do not do this, then a bitter quarrel is expected to occur. The concept derives from the difficulty of separating butter from bread once it has been spread – buttered bread cannot be “unbuttered”. Another phrase used in this way is “salt and pepper”.
