Summary: Popular music star Ray Doyle is getting anonymous letters threatening to kill him if he doesn’t stop performing. He ignores them until a parcel containing an adder arrives, which results in PA Ruth Pettifer being bitten and ending up in hospital. Manager George Cowley decides the matter is serious enough to warrant hiring a bodyguard for Ray’s protection. An old army buddy sends along WAP Bodie, recently released from service with the SAS.

Notes: Special thanks first and foremost to my dearest catlover2x, beta extraordinaire. Thanks also to sc_fossil aka kat-byrd for the fabulous art, and to snailbones who posted the pictures that inspired this story. She literally saved me from having to pull out of the big bang when my first idea wouldn’t behave! Thanks as well to silvan_lady for taking time out of her busy schedule to do the Brit check for me.

I'd also like to take this time to apologize that I haven't read anyone else's stuff yet. I had great intentions, but RL has been totally kicking my butt this month. :( I hope it settles down soon so I can get to reading all the intriguing stories that have been and will be posted!
