Bonus Round 1: Memory

Bonus Round 1: Memory

Let's start our summer by looking at the past—things that happened in canon, or maybe in an AU, or maybe just as wishful thinking...

This round is CLOSED as of 7PM on June 9 EDT. Late fills may be posted, but they will not receive points.

Please read this whole post before commenting to ensure that your team gets the most points possible. (There are changes from last year!)

  • Submit prompts by commenting to this post! You prompt should consist of one scenario beginning with the phrase "Remember when", along with any ship/ot3/etc. from our list of nominated fandoms.
    • Your prompts can take the form of recalling canon facts/events ("Remember when Nozomi and Eli got parfaits after school?"), non-canon events ("Remember when Megumi and Jin met at the Tadokoro Family Reunion?"), or somewhere in-between ("Remember when Bokuto and Kenma first met?"). Headcanons and AUs are welcome!
    • Your prompt MUST include some kind of relationship. (This is not the sports anime gen olympics.) Platonic relationships are indicated by an "&" between the names (e.g., Rei & Nagisa). Non-platonic relationships use "/" (e.g., Rei/Nagisa). Please don't say "Any pairing," either!
  • Post fills by leaving a responding comment to a prompt with your newly-created work.
  • Remember to follow the general bonus round rules, outlined here.

    Bonus round shenanigans all happen in the comments below. Brand-new works only, please.

    Format your comment in one of the following ways:

    • Replace [YOUR SHIP] with the name of the team you belong to, including Grandstand or Sports Teams
    • Place the prompt's relationship in the first bolded line of the comment. Including the canon isn't required, but it's nice.

    Fills 21+: 2 points each

    All scored content must be created new for this round.

    If you're hunting through the prompts looking for what to fill, a good trick is to view top-level comments only.

“You did it on purpose this time, didn't you?” Haru says, smirking as he stares at the lone double bed in the centre of the Brisbane hotel room.

“Why the hell would I willingly force myself to cram into a tiny bed with you again?” Rin snaps back on reflex.

Well... truth be told, there's a small mountain of reasons why he'd want to share a bed with Haru. Most of them he doesn't think he'll ever have the guts to be able to admit out loud, and definitely none of them he would ever actually book a single bed hotel room for. No, he is certain he got them a room with two beds this time. He is certain. “I'll go to the front desk.”

“Rin, it's really not a problem. We've shared before,” Haru says. He's already got his bag on one side of the bed, unzipping it and pulling his things out. “I'm going to get ready for sleep. You should too.”

“But I booked a room with two.” Rin demands one last time. He glares at the offending bed as Haru sighs out an it's fine, and walks past him and into the bathroom.

This is not what Rin had in mind when he'd invited Haru to join him on a trip along the Australian east coast during the only week and a half of the year they both had off at the same time. The last time they had shared a bed it took him a solid three hours to fall asleep because he couldn't get past the thought that Haru – beautiful, talented, amazing Haru – was sleeping not a hand's width away from him. Shit, just the thought of it is enough to make Rin's face flush and his heart thump thump thump so hard and fast that he's sure the people in the room next door can hear it.

The sound of the bathroom door opening snaps him out of his thoughts and when he looks up Rin sees Haru standing in front of him in a loose t-shirt and shorts, with damp and tousled hair and a few drops of water still trailing down his neck. He looks gorgeous like this and Rin is doomed. Rin is so very doomed. He really, truly has no idea how he's supposed to survive the three nights they're here actually sharing a bed with Haru like this.

“There's no tub.” A small frown tugs at the corners of Haru's lips. Rin laughs quietly to himself. He should have known that the bathroom configuration would be more important to Haru than the bed count. “You should get ready for sleep. We're getting up early tomorrow,” Haru adds as he climbs into what he's clearly decided is his half of the bed, leaving the other side free. For Rin sleep in. Right next to him.

Rin feels his face growing hot again and his throat goes instantly dry. He spins around towards the bathroom before Haru notices and rushes in, firmly closing the door behind him.

“Pull yourself together.” Rin leans over the sink and stares at his own reflection. He's being ridiculous. It's fine. Just like Haru said, it's fine. It'll be fine. What's a few nights sharing a bed with the person he's been in love with for as long as he can remember? Rin laughs. Yeah, he's definitely doomed.

He makes quick work of getting ready for bed and when he comes back out into the main area of the hotel room Haru is lying on his side, breathing steady as if he were already asleep. As he walks over to the bed Rin's heart starts pounding again. He pulls back the covers and slips inside, suddenly so conscious of his entire body and every single awkward movement he makes as he tries to settle in.

Lying there with Haru right next to him, though, is clearly not the greatest way for Rin to get any sleep. This bed is just a bit smaller than the one they shared in Sydney a few years ago, and they're close enough that Rin can feel the heat from Haru's body. He huffs to himself in frustration as his mind fills with thoughts of curling up against Haru and wrapping his arms around him. Rin's throat goes dry again and something in his chest clenches painfully. He shouldn't be thinking of things like that, he really, really shouldn't, especially not now of all times. They're just sharing a bed for fuck's sake. They've done it before, so why is he such a mess this time around? Why is he always such a mess around Haru?

Rin sighs. He needs to pull himself together. Maybe he should just sleep on the floor. He's embarrassed to admit that he considers this as a serious option for a few seconds before deciding that it would probably raise too many questions and Haru would definitely not take I fell off the bed as a good enough answer to them. Instead Rin closes his eyes and tries to force himself into sleep.

Ten, fifteen, twenty minutes pass and Rin is still wide awake, turning this way and that, pushing the covers on and off, trying anything he can to get comfortable enough lying next to Haru to actually get some rest.

“Stop fidgeting.” Haru's voice is heavy with sleep but it's still enough to make Rin yelp and nearly jump right out of his own skin.

“Fucking hell, Haru,” he hisses. “I'm not fidgeting,” he says as he turns on his side, back to Haru, and adjusts the covers around him for the billionth time.

"You are," Haru mumbles back. The mattress shift beneath Rin as Haru shuffles around next to him. "Just go sleep." The hair at the back of Rin's neck stands up on end when Haru's warm breath brushes against his skin. He tries to lean back to see what the hell Haru is doing but he doesn't get very far because there's an arm slung around him, holding him firmly against Haru's chest.

"Ha-Haru?" It comes out more like a tiny squeak than anything else. All he gets in return is a tired hnn as Haru burrows his face into the back of Rin's shoulder.

Rin has no idea what is happening. He looks carefully at the arm around him. Yep, that is definitely Haru's arm, attached to Haru's body, which is pressed up against his own. This is a dream, this has to be a dream. There is no other situation in which this makes any sense to him.

But it's not a dream, it's real and Rin has no idea what the hell to do. His body is frozen in place and his heart has gone into overdrive, pounding so hard that Haru's surely going to wake up from it at any second and realize what positions they're in, and fuck that is the very last thing Rin wants right now.

He breathes in, slow and deep, tries to settle his frantic heart. It helps. A bit. Not really. He's still very much a mess but for a whole slew of new reasons. Hell, he's still not entirely convinced that this isn't some sort of very vivid dream.

The clock on the bedside table tells him that it is way too late to still be awake. Haru's right, they're getting up early tomorrow and Rin really should just go to sleep. Too bad falling asleep feels like some sort of a cruel joke right now... How the hell is he supposed to rest when all he can do is think about how solid and warm Haru feels against his back, and the leg Haru's managed to sneak across his calves and how, for the first time since he's walked into this hotel room, Rin doesn't feel on edge.

Oh, how easily he could get used to this.

Rin lets himself relax, feels his muscles uncoil and his body sink deeper into the mattress. He closes is eyes and focuses on Haru's breathing and the steady, gentle rise and fall of his chest. It all feels... strangely comfortable – like this is meant to be, or that it's right, or some other flowery crap they always say in romance novels. He lets out a small, quiet laugh at how ridiculous he feels because Haru and silly romance cliches just never went together in his mind until now.

Sleep pulls at him, finally, like a gentle tide rolling along across the shoreline. Rin wants to resist, wants to stay awake and commit every damn detail of this night to memory because he doubts he's ever going to get to feel something like this again, but its impossible. He feels too comfortable, too content in Haru's arms and too tired from their travels to put up much of a fight.

It takes him only seconds to fall asleep and when he does it's the best damn sleep he's had in years.
