maim or seriously injure

When he gets jealous (Avengers preference)

Pairings: Avengers x reader
Author notes:

  • It’s my first time writing preferences, sorry if this sucks.
  • Gifs are not mine

Steve Rogers: Well, Steve is such a gentleman and rarely loses his temper, but whenever a guy flirts, or basically talks to you he can’t help being furiously jealous. He never leaves your side and holds your waist with his strong arms, staring at his poor victim until he decides to leave.

Bruce Banner:
Bruce is really a quiet person, he always tries to contol his emotions since he absolutely doesn’t want to turn green, so even if he is jealous, he simply hides it at that very moment and waits for you two to be alone so that he can talk to you.

Thor: He’s Thor, he is worthy and everyone else just isn’t, so whenever a guy tries to flirt with you, he doesn’t lose his temper introducing himself as your boyfriend, and gladly watches the guy’s self-esteem going to pieces.

Clint Barton:
He’s a bastard, and this is one of the reasons why you love him, so when a guy goes too far with you he shoots an arrow right above his head, pretending it was a mistake and says things like “You should go away, next time you might not be this lucky." 

Tony Stark:
Tony is a genius, billionaire, playboy, philanthropist, pretty jealous man you would add. When he gets jealous there’s no way to stop his sarcasm, he practically destroys with words the guy in question and does it keeping his usual smirk on his face.

James "Bucky” Barnes:
Bucky is quite insecure, he thinks you deserve the best in life and he doesn’t know if he’ll be able to give it to you. For this reason, whenever a guy flirts with you, he becomes quiet and withdrawn, so you immediately notice something’s wrong with him and forget about the other boy, going straight to him to make sure he knows how much you love him. 

Pietro Maximoff:
Pietro is quite possessive when it comes to you, he doesn’t want anyone to look or talk to you in a non-proper way, so whenever another guy flirts with you, he runs straight to you and threatens him using some strange Russian words that you yourself don’t understand, but they do sound pretty intimidating.

Wanda Maximoff: Wanda always knows if someone is having malicious thoughts about you, so she wastes no time and walks up to you, wrapping her arms around you in order to make it clear that  you’re taken.

Natasha Romanoff: Natasha is, well, Natasha. She can’t help telling things the way they are, so whenever someone  flirts with you, she just tells him/her not to bother you and when you two are left alone she hungrily kisses you, whispering things like “Remember that you’re mine” 

Loki: Loki becomes dangerous whenever a guy flirts with you, he uses his magic tricks to make the boy drop in his own feet or to set his clothes on fire; obviously he never means to kill, he only means to maim, or seriously injure*.

*This is sort of a quote from Harry Potter, I do love Dobby!

Steve: “Buck, stop! You’re going to kill someone!”

Bucky: “Bucky never meant to kill. Bucky only meant to maim or seriously injure.”


Imagine if the Marauders were the avengers…

The marauders sat around the small shawarma table, munching on their sandwiches in a comfortable silence. Sirius threw a few fries at Remus, grinning as they smacked the boy in the face.

“Cut it out Padfoot. Don’t make me angry, you won’t like me when I’m angry” the boy growled, eyes flashing yellow for a moment. Sirius chuckled, but didn’t throw anything else, worried that the teen might wolf out. After all, they had just finished fighting with Severus, and he was still slightly on edge.

“I must say, you looked incredible fighting today Lilly-“James began, tossing the hammer in his hands from side to side in a nervous way.

“Save the compliments for someone who cares Potter. I was only here to make sure you didn’t kill Sev” the red head rolled her eyes, flicking some of the bright strands out of her eyes.

“We were never going to kill him” Sirius rolled his eyes, fiddling with the red and golden metal that covered his wrist “Only maim or seriously injure, but never kill

Peter bit his lip, trying to contain his snorts of laughter, cleaning the black arrow in his hand.

Lilly pointed her gun at Sirius’ forehead, making him jump back slightly.

“Can we have one meal where we don’t try to kill each other please?” Remus grunted, brushing away dust that had collected on his trousers from when he crashed through a wall.

“Fine” Lilly sighed, still glaring daggers at Sirius as she placed the gun back in its holster. 

Severus sat in silence slightly away from everyone else, hands bound, black hair messy, one antler missing from his golden helmet.


Ok Casualty, some Chuffy ground rules:

1) you may not at any time wreck this relationship (30 years of development down the drain if you do)
2) you may not kill, maim or seriously injure either party
4) get rid of any potential obstacles, particularly those whose names begin with R and end with yan.

Thanking you very muchly and good day.

I will spar you! Respectfully.

Inevitably, if you practice martial arts, you have told someone you are going to your martial arts class.  They may have given you that raised eyebrow wtf look.  If you tell them you spar, same thing.  More often than not I hear a comment about sparring along the lines of ‘I bet it’s a great way to get aggression out.’

Sparring is not about getting out aggression.

What sparring is about: respect, self control, and refining your technique.


First and foremost is the well being of your partner because you are not here to injure or seriously maim them.  They deserve your respect because they have openly agreed to being put in harms way for the sake of bettering your skill.  You are partially responsible for their safety and welfare.  

Self control

Yes, it is possible to learn without going full force.  If you really need to wail on something, save that for a bag or some other training equipment designed for that.  There is a kid (16) at my dojang who has zero self control and ends up always apologizing profusely for injuring his partner.  Not only does his behavior not change, but most students will not spar with him anymore.  Only the advanced students will and there aren’t many who regularly attend sparring class.  If you want other students to spar with you, keep your strength in check. 

Refining your technique

If your school is set up the way mine is there is a separate class for sparring instead of being the primary focus.  During the regular lessons we learn a variety of blocks/strikes and application.  Well, the only way you are going to learn speed and accuracy is to practice and sparring is a great place to try out something new.  One of my instructors will often spar with the lower ranks and when the student goes into kick he just stands there and lets them try it and keeps himself at a safe enough distance that it wont hurt him.  

We are here to learn so in the process, try to keep yourself and your sparring partners in tact.  

Also, listen to Yoda

Thank you to SifuKuttel for inspiring me to write this post. 

168 children have died and over 1,100 have been seriously injured, maimed and even terribly burned. No child should have to suffer the terrifying impact of such violence. We are urging all sides to stop this violence for the sake of the children, who are suffering the worst.
