( Bodyguard Shipping )

the bodyguard shipping meme

You're a pop star, or a royal, or maybe even the last of your kind who will bring about the Earth's redemption. Whatever the case may be, you're in a position that may be a bit dicey if you attract the wrong kind of attention.

And you're a bodyguard, a soldier, a knight - a protector. Somehow, you've been roped into protecting this person. You'll be rewarded, of course. The work may be cut out for you, but just do your job, keep your head down, and it'll go smooth.

Except for when the two of you break the bounds of professionalism and feelings begin to flourish. Being in such close quarters may get you to see the other in a different light, and saving someone's life just may be the ultimate form of intimacy.

Could this be the real danger? To feel so strongly for the one you've sworn to protect...are you compromised?

How to Play
1. Comment with your character and preferences, being sure to put if you want to play the guard, the guarded, or either. Also, you may want to put if you prefer fluffy, angsty, or smutty interaction - or have no preference.
2. Comment to others.
3. There are no prompts, because there are so many potential options there could be a hundred. Feel free to play anything: the beginnings of the relationship, just meeting, getting used to each other/not getting along at first, the obligatory first time, a threat on the protected's life and how their protector responds, how the feelings between the two has changed the protection, etc. Your only limit is you.

[The suits didn't tell Luke exactly who Peggy is or why there are people with advanced weaponry trying to kill her. They just told him that her name is Peggy, enemies with many resources are targeting her, and it's Luke's job to make sure she survives the next week. In exchange, more shadowy arms of the government have promised to take care of Harlem, and suddenly the biggest city projects in the area have become flush with money and local schools are getting pumped with extra cash for smaller classrooms and more textbooks.

They're meant to meet in Midtown. Peggy looks like she couldn't have even hit thirty, but she holds herself with the confidence of a woman three times her apparent age. Bodyguards Luke is intended to relieve lie in wait, trying to seem subtle as they sip coffee at a cafe. Peggy sits alone with a cup of tea, and when Luke arrives, she gives a polite smile that lacks warmth.]

Mr. Cage, I presume? [She says, nodding to the seat across from her as an offer for him to sit.]

[ Luke hasn't taken up a gig as a bodyguard before, and for a little while he considered turning down the job. That was, until he learned of the help promised to Harlem- the type of help he can't provide. After that, he found himself agreeing to guard this 'Peggy' for the next week.

How hard can it be? With a body that can deflect bullets, anyone who slips past his notice will find themselves dealing with a real human shield instead. He feels increasingly confident that he's up to the job.

Peggy herself is a stunning woman, both beautiful and exuding an aura of confidence. Luke finds himself drawn to her immediately, though he keeps his expression neutral and, he hopes, professional, as he sits down at the table across from her. ]

That's right. Call me Luke. [ Professional or not, he doesn't need a 'Mr.' in front of any part of his name. ] It's nice to meet you. Guessing you already know all about me?
betheshield: (You cannot deny it)

[personal profile] betheshield 2017-03-23 09:51 am (UTC)(link)
The pleasure is all mine. You may call me Peggy. [If he doesn't need a title, neither did she. It's not as if telling him to call her 'Agent' would be particularly discreet, and besides, she's heard that times have changed since she 'slept'.

She would be lying if she said that Luke wasn't exceedingly attractive, but her general annoyance at being assigned a bodyguard luckily tampers any unprofessional urge she might have had.]
I hear that you have made quite the name for yourself. Bulletproof, aren't you? [She takes a sip of her tea, like she talks to bulletproof men every day.] Would you like anything to drink?
