SWORN TO THE SWORD
shipping meme


It's textbook, really. Or, more accurately, parchment, because you've either found yourself or always been in a time (it doesn't necessarily have to be medieval) where swords - and possibly sorcery - are the weapons and the mindset of the day; at the very least, the rough and tumble attitude that comes with a knife's edge permeates the land. And you know how to wield a weapon, be it a blade, your own body, or something else entirely, so you've put it to good use.

You've become a sworn sword to protect someone.

It could be out of the goodness of your heart, out of heritage, or stemmed from a desire for compensation or power. No matter what the cause, however, one fact remains the same, and that's how you cannot let emotions cloud your judgement.

Of course, that may be a little easier said than done. When you're so close to a person, in order to keep them safe, and when you put your very life on the line...

...ah, but you must persevere. Your duty does not allow you to falter.

( Give me all of the fealty/bodyguard/swornsword AUs. They are EVERYTHING.

Unsurprisingly, Princess Serenity is a...princess. However, she's got a soft spot that's more like a soft-mile-wide that leaves her susceptible to growing close to people. Not always the right people, but that's what you get. She also has a sensitive, free spirit and a lot to learn about being royalty.

This probably means she shouldn't fall in love as quickly and unwisely as she is wont to do; she hasn't learned that bit quite yet. )

[As an emperor, he's likely the one allowing someone to protect him (since he's a god, too, with a very, very real weakness against fire) or I could AU him to swearing to protect someone else, which very well may happen anyway.

[Please note that regardless, he has baggage of a very real lost love simply because she bid him run, and run he did, at the cost of her life. He'll likely be slow to allow his affections show because of this, on top of his immortal nature.]

[ ooc: I'm canon blind to BOF and I imagine you'll be to Katanagatari too? But the irony of an immortal fire bird ninja protecting/falling in love with a water dragon just struck me as poetic/disastrous - Houou is pretty full of baggage too, but he'd be an incredibly competent bodyguard and is easily duty/honour bound - he's canonly a blade for hire. Happy to AU! ]
