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.


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

    Required Work Minimums:
    • 400 words (prose)
    • 400px by 400px (art)
    • 14 lines (poetry)
    There is no max work cap.

    Format your comment in one of the following ways:

    If PROMPTING:If FILLING:If FILLING as a TEAM GRANDSTAND participant:
    PROMPT: TEAM [YOUR SHIP]
    • 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.
    • Below that, place applicable major content tags (when applicable; otherwise write "no tags" or "none")
    • Visual example
    FILL: TEAM [YOUR SHIP], [RATING]
    • Replace [YOUR SHIP] with the name of the team you belong to
    • Replace RATING with the rating of your fill (G - E)
    • Place applicable major content tags and word count before your fill (when applicable; otherwise write "no tags" or "none")
    • NSFW FILLS: Please cross-link these fills and use clear tags in your comment. Written/text fills should be hosted at AO3 ONLY. Art/visual fills can be hosted anywhere. You may include a small safe-for-work preview of the fill in your comment.
    • To place an image in your comment, use this code: <img src="LINK TO YOUR IMAGE" alt="DESCRIPTION OF YOUR IMAGE"/>

    • Replace RATING with the rating of your fill (G - E)

    Posts not using this format will be understood to be unofficial discussion posts, regardless of what they contain. They, like all comments in this community, are subject to the code of conduct.


    SCORING
    These numbers apply to your team as a whole, not each individual teammate. Make as many prompts/fills as you want!

    For prompts: 5 points each (maximum of 50 prompt points per team per round)

    For fills:

    First 3 fills by any member of your team: 20 points each
    Fills 4-10: 10 points each
    Fills 11-20: 5 points each
    Fills 21+: 2 points each

    All scored content must be created new for this round.


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

    Have a question? Check The FAQ first. If you still need help, feel free to contact the mods. Happy fanworking!

"see you," says narumiya mei, and akira believes him. not that he will see akira, probably, but certainly that akira will see him. there's summer koshien on the television, for one, the place that's slipped out of akira's reach forever, the thread of narumiya's voice saying you lost to the best team in the country a refrain that replays each time akira watches him set foot on the mound. the television screen is too small to contain him, that overwhelming pressure that flattened sakurazawa's careful, meticulous offense. akira remembers the feeling, halfway through a prep exam, glasses sliding off his nose, yoshimi and masaaki arguing about applied physics theory on either side of him.

it must be hot at koshien, everyone says so; it was hot enough in the semi-finals. akira watches narumiya scuff his feet, sun bright on his white cap, his pale shock of hair. the camera's not close enough to catch the the cold blue glint of his eyes but akira can imagine it, remembers exactly how it looks paired with that jut of the chin. the best team in the country, he thinks. narumiya winds up, a vicious fastball to the very corner of the plate, the sound of it hitting the catcher's mitt loud in the suddenly quiet room.

"good pitch," yoshimi says, voice hushed.

akira takes a breath, turns a page. "yeah," he says. "yeah."

*

he's not surprised when narumiya goes pro straight out of high school. akira keeps track of his career casually, between rounds of being swamped with university, the rocky arc of narumiya's third year culminating in the draft announcement. akira's in the middle of writing what feels like the longest paper of his life but he still finds time to text you owe me an ice cream to yoshimi when he sees it in the newspaper.

*

akira goes to a signing on a whim the next year, despite yoshimi's needling. it's not that far from his apartment, his grades are good, it's fine. surreal, maybe, to stand in line, to see the line and how big it actually is, narumiya all smiles at the table. akira's got a game ball from that summer for him to sign, which is maybe a little strange but he's too smart to try to justify it.

narumiya's laughing about something with his teammate when akira gets to the front of the line, takes the ball without looking, scribbles his signature large between the seams.

"thanks," akira says," and naurmiya pauses, turns to look at him with a sharper eye than anyone could expect from the half-nonsense conversation he'd just been having.

"hey," he says, "you're the knuckleball guy aren't you?"

"oh," akira says, the world tilting two degrees to the left, three skipped beats before his heart shudders back to life, "yes."

"hang around a bit," narumiya says, pressing the ball back into akira's hands. "i want to ask you something."

"all right," akira says, already being shuffled off to the right to make way for the next person in line. narumiya flashes him a smile and the afterimage lingers on the backs of akira's eyelids like a flashbulb.

"see you," narumiya says, and akira believes him.
