What seems consistent in every article is that in order to be a bodyguard, a person must have pretty good defense training. So you may also find it useful to research different forms of defense (martial arts, boxing, etc.) and weapon usage, so you’ll be able to write about the fighting styles accurately. (You’ll also likely find that these characters rarely actually fight and spend more time really standing around, bored, but they would still know how should the occasion arise, and that’s important in writing their mindset.)
a Bodyguard Harry/Football Louis AU where Louis isn’t even gay at all but somehow Harry is too gorgeous with his endless legs and bouncy curls and Louis just can’t resist. From there on, chaos and love ensues.
Louis was sure Harry was doing everything on purpose. He just couldn’t find a solid reason why.
If it was to make the singer slightly uncomfortable, it worked. If it was to sexually frustrate him, it worked. And if it was to make him flustered, it worked too. Everything worked and Louis really needed to find a way to wank, his balls were going blue.
or AU where Harry is Louis’ bodyguard and really, Louis was fucked since the beginning.
There is reason to believe Prince Harry’s life is in danger. After a failed kidnapping attempt, Louis is assigned to guard Harry around the clock. He is the best at what he does, but he has a tendency to not get along with clients. Louis and Harry start off on the wrong foot, but it soon becomes clear that neither is at all what the other expected.
Queen Anne met Louis’ eyes. “While your file documents many remarkable accomplishments, it also contains a number of early terminations. Why is that?”
“It all depends on what your priorities are,” he said slowly. “If your primary concern is protection, I’m your guy. If you’re looking for someone polite…” He shrugged. “I don’t generally try to be rude, but social graces aren’t what I’m being paid for. If someone values being sucked up to over being protected, that’s their problem.”
“You seem quite well-mannered,” Anne said, frowning.
Both Nick and Louis snorted at that. “You’ve only known me for ten minutes,” Louis said. “Give it time.”
