Violence - these fics contain notable amounts of physical violence.

Consider this the equivalent of a PG-13 or R rating, and not the sort given out for snogging or titties. There's not much with this tag when you add it up, as my violent side usually finds out in other ways (top scorer: singing along to System of a Down), but it's the sort of thing that needs to be tagged.
