the BODYGUARD shipping meme

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.

( At best, Gwenaëlle could be kindly described as unprepared for the rigors of the road.

Now free of the rebel mages who'd offered kindness and then seized opportunity - the healing rope-burn at her wrists makes it hard to sympathise, though she remains acutely conscious of the fact their healers are the only reason she yet lives to complain about it - the most sensible thing to do would be to return to Halamshiral. Or, better yet, to retreat to the country estate she'd been leaving in the first place: there is gold enough there for Talbot to be paid handsomely for his kindness, and less risk of an apostate mage drawing attention. She is ill-suited to traveling without her luxuries, without her complement of guardsmen, without a maid to dress her hair and a carriage to ride within. She could be home in a matter of days if they turned in a different direction, and Guilfoyle would send word to her f--


She's in no rush to see her father. She's in no rush, in truth, to return to her fine Orlesian cage, but: he had said he knew her uncle. That he'd seen him. That he lived. Maybe it's mad, chasing the rumor - anything could have happened since then, does he live still? - of a man she's never met in the company of a man who in any other circumstances she'd never have met, much less shared a fire with, but she's done mad things, before. And mages are a good deal less frightening when you have to curl up to their side for warmth in a cave, it turns out, what with how useful magic can be in providing it. )

If we don't find him, ( eventually, when she should be sleeping but simply can't, ) I will still pay you as agreed.

( It's been weeks; there is an undeniable closeness. And yet, Gwenaëlle does not presume, instead worries at the thread of doubt that makes her pick at his willingness to come along on her potentially very misguided adventure when his life might be rather immediately simplified by hauling her stroppy arse back to her noble father, likely to turn a blind eye to a strange mage if that mage happens to have news of his brother and the safe return of his only heiress. )
