anonymous asked:

hey hey!! i just wanted to ask: do you have anything about bodyguards and their everyday activities?? love the blog btw!

Thank you so much! I’m sorry this took a bit longer in getting back to you. I’ve been sick the last few days, but I am back in business! Here’s what I could find for you:

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.)

Erdogan’s security guard and a Kurdish protester in Washington D.C yesterday.

“Today I experienced first hand the extent and savagery of Turkish fascism: My Kurdish friends and allies were protesting peacefully against Erdoğan being in Washington when we were suddenly attacked by a group of Erdoğan’s official bodyguards and secret police. They attacked women, children and the elderly with reckless abandon. I ran in the opposite direction from our friends and got caught by one of the security guards. He put me in a headlock to the point where he popped a blood vessel in my eye. He held me and threatened to kill me. I was scared for my life and tried to get into the car in front of me. Luckily there was a man in the car who helped me get into the other side of the car. I saw out of the corner of my eye that they were running behind me and I told him: "don’t open the door”! I swear that man saved my life. After I realized the extent of the violence inflicted against my friends. Among us we had people who needed stitches and had concussions from these vicious attacks. Today’s experience has shown us that as Kurds we are not even safe from Turkey’s racism and terrorism here in the United States. However that will never stop our spirit and struggle for freedom for our people here and in Kurdistan.“

3.  Without You I’ll Never Make It Out Alive by myheroiscurly (201k, complete)

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.

4.  Bodyguard by fuckuharold (17k, complete)

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.

5.  You Took My Heart By Surprise by LiveLaughLoveLarry (39k, complete)

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.”

(I'm not sure if this is how to do this, so I'm sorry if I mess it up!!) Do you happen to have any prompts about guards / sentinels that are wary of the person they're supposed to be serving, despite the fact this person is only a child? Thanks!! Hope you have a great day!

“Why do you look so scared? It’s just a kid.”

“This has to be the youngest charge I’ve ever had.”

“Do you ever think about how sad it is that I have to protect a child? Who would hurt a child?”

“I suppose it’s too late to request someone else?”

public_zackcloudhall:  Even though I had met them all a few days before this at rehearsals, 06/06/06 was the first show I ever worked for @panicatthedisco . I saw that night what this band meant to the fans and knew I was happy to be a part of it in any way I could be. Over the years members and friends have come and gone but the one constant is you guys. So thank you for having me and here’s to another 11years. 🍻
