[meme] Guardian Angels Who Love Their Charges


You're an angel. Not metaphorically, not in the "you're so sweet" way; you're a literal angel - ethereal energy form, wings, and all. But you're not just any sort of angel. You're a guardian angel. Guardian angels are a caste, or choir, created with the sole purpose of protecting those they're assigned to. Each angel is created specifically for the person they guard, with a few exceptions. The only thing you're programed to know is duty.

Naturally, being invested in your charge is expected. What if your feelings for them veer away from "dutiful" into "fondness" and then...something else? Angels aren't supposed to know love, at least not in the way those in the living realm do. Still, nothing is as certain as it used to be, and you're not so sure of your purpose. All you know is that you want to keep your charge safe.

Can you guarantee that, now?


How to Play
  • Comment with your character and preferences.

  • Mention if you'd rather play the guardian angel or the guarded.

  • Tag others.

  • Use the RNG to determine your fate.


  • Prompts

    1. Watching: You've been watching this person as long as both they and you have been in this world. Maybe over years, maybe suddenly, things aren't the same when you look at them.

    2. Guilt: You realized that these pesky emotions are growing and you know this is against everything you know to be true. Your kind cannot love, and even if you could, this is wrong. You have known this person their entire life and thinking of them as more is unacceptable.

    3. Terrible Angel: You're not angelic at all and fail neatly at almost all the benchmarks, but when it comes to the one you guard, you don't folly.

    4. Righteous Fury: Usually, angels must be removed and impassive. You see your charge mistreated, though, and you lose control.

    5. Relegated to Guardian Angelhood: You used to be much more important, of a greater choir of angel. Then, you screwed up and got pushed down into the ranks of guardian angel. It would be easy to be bitter towards your charge. You aren't, for some reason.

    6. Can't Be Seen: The person you care for the most can't see you. It's typical angel protocol, yet you can't help but want to make yourself noticeable.

    7. Affecting Your Work: Your growing and sometimes erratic emotions make your job harder. You're getting sloppy. You may even allow your charge to be hurt or allow yourself to be conspicuous.

    8. Jealousy: You saw your charge with someone else and it...it really ruffled your feathers. Maybe you lost your cool. Hopefully, that won't mean bad mojo for the other person involved. No one would be any wiser if you made their head more attractive to bird droppings, though.

    9. Kiss: Can you kiss someone when you technically have no lips? They might just feel a pleasant breeze; still, you're kissing them, and this is...nice.

    10. How They'd Like You to Look: You've decided to make yourself known to them, and you want your appearance to be to their liking.

    11. Inhabiting the Vessel They Love: A bit more sinister than the above, but also somewhat practical. They already love this body, anyway.

    12. Revealing Yourself: You're taking the big step and coming into their life as an actual, tangible presence. Of course, "I'm your guardian angel" rarely gets the response you hope.

    13. Stay with You: You promise that you'll stay by their side always, now as a physical companion.

    14. Confessions: No matter the costs, you're revealing your true feelings.

    15. Deciding to be More: It's dangerous, it's unheard of; however, both of you want to become more than just angel and charge.

    16. Intimacy Without a Corporeal Form: They know you're there even when you're not in human form, and they want to touch you. This can be a smut option, but it doesn't have to be.

    17. Intimacy With a Corporeal Form: You're beginning to learn what it's like to be intimate with them while you're in this new form. Again, this can be a smut option, but it doesn't have to be.

    18. Wings: Letting someone touch your wings is the ultimate show of trust and, in angel terms, one of the closest things you have to sexuality.

    19. Called to the Mat: Your higher-ups have learned of your sins. Now, you're on trial. Will you deny your charge?

    20. Not Officially Yours: Problem number one: you're in love. Problem number two: it's with some other angel's charge.

    21. Second Chance: As previously stated, most guardian angels are created for that one special person. However, some angels whose charges have died young are allowed a second chance. Will this new person ever replace your old?

    22. Protection: Now is time to do the guarding - by any means necessary, especially now, after realizing just what your charge means to you.

    23. Fallen: Because of your sins, you've lost favor. You've been stripped of your heavenly grace and you've fallen.

    24. Immortal: You must deal with the implications that your charge will die and you will be sent on to a new heavenly job.

    25. Failed: You didn't do enough. You let yourself slip, and now your charge is dying. They were more than just a charge, so you must do what you can to let their soul pass on in the most peaceful manner possible. But can you let go?

    26. CHOOSE YOUR OWN

    ((Ok, so real fast before I tag, the idea for the AU is that Marshall's mom was a Hollywood B movie screen queen, Snow Queen/Simone is like a silver screen actress who is going senile that he spent a lot of time with as a kid since his mom was off being a starlet, and now he is like...FOB style rock star who sorta wanders through college and partying all the time and life

    Sound good?))

    ((oh my goodness yes. i love the idea of Simone being Marshall's mom. she was probably a hot starlet too back in the day. ;u; ))
    batlittleboy: (hey.)

    Ok, I got 15 and loosely basing it around that but feel free to go another way!

    Marshall sat in the window sill of his apartment, looking over at the city. The marine layer was starting to burn off as the morning started to warm up, and the day was going to be hot as hell.

    Flopping back against the wall, he tapped his fingers against the bass sprawled across his lap, before setting it down and standing.

    "You around, pinkie?"
    bubbagum: <user name=natazilla site=tumblr.com> (pic#8477832)

    oh hohoho

    [personal profile] bubbagum 2014-11-14 04:43 am (UTC)(link)
    "Why do you insist on calling me that?"

    The voice seemed to come out of thin air, as Marshall was currently the only person in the room. Or was he? Within a few seconds, something began to materialize. A body. A very pink body. A very pink body belonging to a male with lavender colored eyes and a smooth complexion. He did not look human.

    "I don't know how many times I've told you that it's degrading."

    Re: oh hohoho

    [personal profile] batlittleboy 2014-11-20 05:33 pm (UTC)(link)

    "Well, there's the fact you're pink. That's a big one."

    Marshall was less phased by the materlization as some might be. He started his coffee pot and scratched the small of his back, stifling a yawn. Saying he wasn't a morning person was an understatement,.

    "Nick names usually are." Turning to lean a hip against the counter, he gave Gumball a toothy grin.

    Gumball continued to give Marshall a flat stare, still not entirely convinced of the use of such a silly-sounding nickname. He decided he wouldn't press the matter further, because there was no use arguing it. It didn't seem like the other young man was going to give it up any time soon.

    They had been spending a lot of time together ever since Gumball had first revealed himself to Marshall Lee. For a while, he had just been a silent, invisible guardian, which was the normal way to go about doing this job. But one night, a night that had been particularly hard on the human, in a hasty decision, Gumball had shown himself. For a while, he had regretted it, knowing that it was against the rules for a guardian angel to make themselves known.

    But now? Gumball liked being able to talk to his charge. Sure, sometimes, he would say that knowing Marshall Lee was a hassle, which he was, but deep down, he was having a good time. Maybe Gumball liked feeling like he was a part of earth again, liked that he could have a connection with someone new.

    "So, did you actually need something from me? Or were you just hungry?" Again, out of nowhere, an apron and oven mitts appeared on the pink angel. He walked over to the pantry, making himself at home while looking through it. That was another thing that had happened; once Gumball discovered that he could interact with his charge and his surroundings, he'd started doing things he'd loved doing when he was alive. Like baking. Goodness, Gumball loved to bake. It was like a dream to be able to do that once more. Okay, yes, it was against every law of being a guardian angel, but right now, he was trying not to think about that and just enjoy being able to do it again.

    "Well, I'm not gonna say no to food."

    Having an angel around had it's benefits. Marshall would be the first to admit he hadn't lead a life where he was left to want much, material object wise. But there was something about having someone around who wanted to do things just because they wanted to that was...weird. In a good way.

    "I actually wanted to know if you wanted to come with me. Like...in a normal way. I'm heading down the coast for the weekend."

    He had been itching to get away, and although the idea to visit Simone had occurred, he decided he needed a bigger break.

    "San Diego. Or maybe Vegas. I dunno."

    "In a normal way," Gumball repeated, before turning around to face Marshall again and gesturing to himself. "You mean, like this?"
    batlittleboy: (Default)

    [personal profile] batlittleboy 2014-11-27 05:33 am (UTC)(link)

    "Yeah, that seems pretty normal to me."

    He grinned, walking past the pink man to grab the creamer for the coffee he was getting going. If he had to be a morning person, he might as well dump copious amount of caffinee in his situation.

    "Haven't you ever wanted to wander around and talk to people that aren't me?" Another smile. "Not that there's much better out there."

    By now, Gumball had filled up a bowl with some ingredients and was now making his way over to the kitchen counter, near the sink. "As nice as it would be to be able to communicate with more sophisticated folk, I'm afraid me going around like this is far from normal."
    batlittleboy: (Default)

    [personal profile] batlittleboy 2014-12-08 09:36 pm (UTC)(link)

    He shot Gumball a look at the comment about sophisticated, but at least this morning had no witty quips to throw back. Whatever energy he might have for that was already wrapped up in trying to make this new plan work.

    "Well, why not? I mean some make-up, or a hat, you'll be less pink in no time. Hell, we can just say we spent the day at the beach and you forgot sunscreen. You wouldn't be the first pinkie running around."

    bubbagum: <user name=natazilla site=tumblr.com> (pic#8477848)

    [personal profile] bubbagum 2014-12-08 09:56 pm (UTC)(link)
    "Make-up," Gumball scoffed and rolled his eyes. He wasn't angry, just amused. The very idea of going out and pretending to be a human was absurd... and incredibly tempting. He continued to face away from Marshall, mostly because he didn't want the other man to see how excited he was. "You've really thought this through, haven't you?"
    batlittleboy: (Default)

    [personal profile] batlittleboy 2014-12-14 10:07 pm (UTC)(link)
    "Yes, my well thought up plan of smearing foundation on your pink face and going out to party."

    Alright so make up and dramatics possibly came a bit more natural to him than your average person. But he didn't really stop to consider that those might be things an angel might be a little less aware of.

    "It'd be fun. We could go anywhere, really."

    [personal profile] bubbagum 2014-12-15 09:55 pm (UTC)(link)
    Once the muffin batter was finished (blueberry!), Gumball sought out the tins. Then he could look at Marshall Lee in the eyes again. It didn't seem like he was joking.

    "I don't understand, though," he said, smile fading just a bit. "You can go to a party with anyone. Why me? I'm probably the most boring person you know."
    batlittleboy: (Default)

    [personal profile] batlittleboy 2014-12-28 02:51 am (UTC)(link)

    "Maybe that's why. Maybe I'm tired of the people I normally hang out with." He said, of course neither confirming or denying if that was true. Because, hey, where was the fun in that?

    "Maybe seeing something old with someone new is interesting enough. Can't get newer than you."

    Well technically older, but who was counting here?

    bubbagum: <user name=natazilla site=tumblr.com> (pic#8477842)

    [personal profile] bubbagum 2014-12-29 08:04 am (UTC)(link)
    Gumball was perfectly fine with being called new, as opposed to old. He wasn't that old, even, when he died, but that was long ago, and something he didn't care to think about too often.

    "It sounds crazy," he said as he scooped the batter into the tins. "But why not?" Yes, why not defy the law and go on a road trip with his charge disguised as a human? Gumball did not care to think about the consequences just as much as he didn't care to think about his death.
    batlittleboy: (Default)

    [personal profile] batlittleboy 2015-01-05 02:15 am (UTC)(link)

    "Sweet."

    He flashed a toothy smile at Gumball, nodding in pleasure. Though he wasn't exactly the kind to bounce off the walls, he was clearly pleased with the results of this all.

    "Any place you wanna hit up? We could go north, south, east..." He paused. "Hey, where did you live before?"

    bubbagum: <user name=natazilla site=tumblr.com> (pic#8477839)

    [personal profile] bubbagum 2015-01-05 10:36 pm (UTC)(link)
    "Not from San Diego or Las Vegas," replied Gumball with a chuckle. Oh, he forgot to set the oven! He quickly did that before continuing filling the tins. When he passed Marshall Lee, he caught sight of that smile, and it pleased him to know that his charge was excited. "Let's see, it's been so long. I was born in Nebraska, but only lived there for a few years, so I don't remember it very well. For most of my life, I lived in New Mexico."
    batlittleboy: (Default)

    [personal profile] batlittleboy 2015-01-10 09:58 pm (UTC)(link)

    "Huh."

    He tried to imagine the other in both those places. Neither came very easily. But then again, he had no idea what the other was like before.

    Probably less pink.

    "How about we head north? Hit up San Francisco?"

    bubbagum: <user name=natazilla site=tumblr.com> (pic#8477850)

    [personal profile] bubbagum 2015-01-15 06:10 am (UTC)(link)
    He was definitely less pink. And his name wasn't silly. Gumball was a rather silly name, wasn't it?

    "It doesn't matter where we go," said the angel with a shrug of his shoulders. It would take a few minutes for the oven to heat up, so he folded his arms across his chest and lightly leaned against the wall, facing the other man. "San Francisco sounds fine. I've never been there!"
    batlittleboy: (Default)

    [personal profile] batlittleboy 2015-01-26 01:05 am (UTC)(link)

    "Then let's do it."

    He isn't exactly someone who shows over the top excitement, but he shows it in his own ways, at the edges. In ways that, by this point, Gumball had seen many times. And right now, he was, for Marshall at least, fairly vibrating with excitement.

    "We can leave today, yeah?"
