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!)



RULES
  • 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.

[no tags apply, 818 words]

Even after three years of managing a boys' high school swim team, it seemed as though Gou's sensitivity to glistening muscles in all of their beautiful, masculine forms was still at its peak. Nagisa had found it funny, the first two years, in how uncomfortable it seemed to make Makoto and Rei. It was still funny when they inherited the club at the start of their third year, when she quite openly checked out all of their new freshmen recruits, calling it an “evaluation.” Then she conspired with Rei to create individualized training and nutritional regimens for each one of them, and the kids were naïve enough to be excited about the prospect of bulking up.

“I'd never date one of our freshmen,” she huffed inelegantly when Nagisa voiced his accusation. “I need someone way more mature than they could ever be.”

She swatted him away when he started cackling at that, bringing up the very decidedly immature Mikoshiba brothers and their continued text messages to her phone.

It wasn't long after that that Nagisa started to tire of Gou's fangirlish praises being sung at every joint practice or swim meet. He didn't want to think too much about his frustration, especially not about the why of it, but at regionals, as Gou went through her usual spiel, Nagisa found his top exploding.

“Alriiiight, Gou-chan, you like muscles a lot, we get it!”

Gou turned to him, assuming the conventional 'I'm a girl and you've just offended me' pose that Nagisa wasn't even phased by anymore, having three older sisters; fists on hips, chest thrust forward, lips puckered into a severe pout.

“There is no possible way you could understand this, Nagisa.” She scoffed. “A man's muscles represent his masculinity, his raw power, his pure virility! An innocent maiden such as myself cannot help but swoon in the presence of such chisled abs!”

Nagisa rolled his eyes and giggled into his hand. “What, and you think an innocent bisexual such as myself is completely immune? But I'm not drooling on everything! Self-control is very important, Gou-chan, you really should work on your--”

“You what?” Gou interrupted suddenly, all pretenses dropped in favor of shock and genuine curiosity. “No, no way, you're lying to me, right? Haha, funny Nagisa?”

Now Nagisa pouted, just as over-the-top as Gou had been, he hoped. “Gou-chan is so cruel, putting me down when I'm baring my deepest, darkest secret to her!”

“Oh my god, you aren't kidding.”

“No,” Nagisa agreed. “And congratulations! I've known since I was eleven but you're the first person I've ever told.”

Gou hesitated, and Nagisa started to feel his stomach tighten as he waited for her response. He was pretty sure she'd take it well; that's why he chose to tell her first, after all, before any of the guys. But she could always surprise him...

“You found out when you were eleven, huh? That's around when you were swimming with my brother and those guys, wasn't it? Was your first crush on one of them?”

“One? Aha... mmm, more like all three! Haru-chan lent me his swimsuit when my sisters switched it with a girl's one, and Rin-chan let me join their relay team, and it's impossible not to have a crush on Mako-chan.”

Gou smiled, and then punched him in the shoulder. “I should have expected that from someone as greedy and selfish as you. But, still, it is pretty cute...”

She trailed off, but then looked at him with a sharp glint in her eye. “Hmmm. So then, the fact that you've been all over Rei for the past two and a half years is...?”

Nagisa clapped his hands over her mouth; Rei was a few yards away, attempting to comfort an anxious first year.

“Don't you dare bring this up with Rei-chan. He's going to freak out no matter what!”

Gou pushed his hand away and shook her head. “I wasn't going to tell him. Obviously you need to be the one to tell him. As soon as possible, before he graduates and moves on to a successful life and you end up... wherever you're going to end up.”

“Hey!”

Gou giggled. “Rei is pretty cute, until he opens his mouth and the anal-retentive comes out. So I guess I'm rooting for you. But so help me God, if you become one of those sappy affectionate couples who are constantly sucking face where I can see you, I'll–”

“Nagisa-kun, Gou-san, they're calling for the 100 meter breaststroke, what are you waiting for?” Rei's voice interrupted them, as he prodded Nagisa to follow their first year breaststroke swimmer down to the poolside. Nagisa turned around to stick his tongue out at Gou, who in turn was shooting him daggers with her eyes.

“Try not to lose too badly, Nagisa!” She cried out in an innocent voice. Nagisa laughed, and vowed to beat his best time.
