Bonus Round 3: Gift Tags

Bonus Round 3: Gift Tags


Feeling generous? In this round, you get to give creative gifts as prompts.

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


RULES
  • Submit prompts as a gift tag in the format below. You can specify the size and a characteristic of the gift, who the sender is, who the recipient is, and a one or two sentence note from the sender to the recipient. Descriptions of the package and the included note don’t have to be explicit, see below.
    • Package: medium sized cube, rattles
      From: Kageyama Tobio
      To: Hinata Shouyou
      Note: These will help you get better.
    • Envelope: manila, 12''x17'', very thick and heavy
      From: Tezuka Kunimitsu
      To: Kinjou Shingo
      Note: Enclosed - Play without regrets!
  • Your prompt MUST include a relationship. Platonic relationships are indicated by an "&" between the names (e.g., Riko & Momoi). Non-platonic relationships use "/" (e.g., Riko/Momoi). Please don't say "Any pairing," either.
  • Fill prompts by leaving a responding comment to the prompt with your newly-created work. Fillers can get creative with how to interpret the prompt: your fill can be about the character receiving the gift, one or both characters using the gift, what prompted the sender to send the gift—the physical gift itself can even be excluded from your fill. What’s important is that the gift tag is clearly the inspiration for your fill.
  • Remember to follow the general bonus round rules, outlined here.

witch/magic au, mention of hexes on animals
word count: 773
this prob isn't what you were angling for but here i am anyway???


The worrying part isn't the box. It's not even what's inside the box. It's the fact he can't find Yuu anywhere.

Tanaka sits on his broom, staring down at the farmland as he chews on his lower lip, fingers tapping at the solid oak. Yuu is always so bright and loud and exuberant that he's never hard to find, especially not for him. They've attracted each other like magnets since they first met under Suga's tutelage all those years ago, sharing tips and tricks for every spell, recipe, flight maneuver he can think of. They've mastered and learned them together, so Tanaka should know where the hell his best friend, his boyfriend is hiding.

It stings a little to think that there's a good hiding spot out there that Yuu hasn't shared with him, that he keeps all to himself. Not that there's anything wrong with that, everyone needs their alone time sometimes. But still. This is a dire moment, and Tanaka doesn't want Yuu to keep worrying.

(He's sure Yuu is, after all. You don't need to be a witch to feel the sheer level of nervousness and fear left behind in such scrawled black lettering.)

With a weary sigh, Tanaka can only think of one other place to go.



Daichi's built his cabin in twisted roots and the magically manipulated section of cave, a fitting sanctuary for a witch older and wiser than Tanaka may ever be. It's well out of the way, and Tanaka touches down lightly in the grass as not to disturb Asahi's herbs or Suga's nightshades.

The door opens for him before he even knocks, and Tanaka ducks inside, following the directions of the vines to Daichi's kitchen. The room smells of jasmine and honey and something else very familiar, and he isn't at all surprised to see that Suga and Asahi are with him for late night tea.

"Tanaka, do you want a cup?" Suga asks brightly, holding up his mug.

"I'll pass." Tanaka shakes his head, and given the expectant look Daichi gives him, he better cut to the chase. "I'm looking for Yuu."

"Ah, is he still missing?" Daichi chuckles, but Tanaka is more interested at the way Asahi seems to be skirting back, the flowers stuffed in his bun closing up.

"Um, yeah, you guys don't know where he is do you?"

"Nope!" Suga answers, a little too quick, and Tanaka's eyes narrow.

"Suga-san..."

"It's true." Daichi adds, giving an odd grin, "It's not like he'd be hiding around here or anything without us knowing, considering that my magic would cover anything he's doing."

Suga and Asahi both shoot him a Look(tm), which means Yuu probably asked him to keep it a secret. Tanaka couldn't be more grateful for Daichi on his side this time.

"Ah, gotcha. Not here. Sure. Totally. Thanks then!"

He's out the door before any of the three can stop him.



It takes some work, a little disobeying the vines, and a bit of his own green magic to lead him to the old bedroom that the two of them stayed at when they would come to Daichi's for extra lessons in the earth and stone that Suga couldn't cover.

That's where he finds Yuu.

"Hey Su-- Ryuu!?"

"There you are!! Gods, you scared me shitless for a while there!" Tanaka rushes in and scoops Yuu in a hug, "Jeez man, next time you run off, at least leave some hints."

The magic of the hug doesn't last, and Yuu's pulling away with panic in his eyes. "But I thought you'd be so mad, oh man, I didn't mean to mess little Shiro up like that, oh my god--"

"Yuu. Breath." Tanaka grabs his shoulders firmly, looking into his eyes. "Shiro's fine. I mean, his fur's all blue and he's totally cold now, but other than that, he's the same old mouse he ever was."

Yuu sniffs, looking seriously at Tanaka. "...Really? I mean, I kinda thought I uh. Killed him."

"Nah man, little guy's sturdy enough to take a few stray charms!"

All the tension falls out of Yuu's shoulders with a sigh of relief, and Tanaka can't resist to steal a kiss on his nose - which Yuu returns with a soft kiss on the mouth.

"Sorry about scaring you."

"No worries." Tanaka rests his forehead against his, and weariness starts to crawl it's way back up into his bones.

Yuu knows, somehow, like he always does, and pulls him down to the small bed. "C'mon, as long as you don't hate me, share a bed with me?"

Tanaka grins, face pressed to Yuu's slender chest.

"Always."

Tags: swearing, mentions of jail, decapitation and blood but this is actually just tananoya being stupid and there’s no violence or angsts just stupidity. Also side ennotsukki and akisae because idk why I really don’t this thing got out of hand help. This is also prob what you weren't angling for

Ryuu was a little excited that he got mail. That afternoon, he woke up from his sleep in to his doorbell ringing and a tired looking postman handing him a large package. He rarely got mail except for his Jump subscriptions and weird postcards from Saeko. So pretty much getting mail specifically for him is always a treat. Unless they were bills but today is not a bill day and no thoughts stop ruining his mail-excitement!

It was a shitty box. It really was. He almost couldn’t see the note taped on top amongst the other labels plastered all over. Someone must have reused this box a thousand times.

Shit, it was from Noya.

He read the message.

SHIT, it was from NOYA. And his boyfriend sounded distressed! The last time Noya sounded this distressed was when Gari-Gari kun almost had to shut down because of a law suit. The last last time was when Noya wrecked Saeko’s motorcycle in a car accident. The last last last time was when Asahi- okay well you get the idea. His boyfriend would never let anyone know how panicked he was unless he couldn’t hold it anymore.

And his boyfriend sounded really panicked.

Determined not to lose his cool, he walked to the kitchen and pulled out a Swiss Army knife. He cut off the tape deliberately but not too slowly. He just wanted to cut it neatly just in case it was something delicate and important. He was not scared shitless. Not at all.

With all the tape cut, he looked at the box beneath him. A deep sigh and a short prayer later, he carefully opened the flaps. He nearly screamed.

He did let out a strangled horrified noise because holy shit there was a decapitated head in the fucking box his boyfriend sent him what the fuck. The eyes were glassy and there was bright red blood around the neck and splattered all over the face. The expression looked like it was shocked that it was dead and Ryuu thought ‘yeah, me too, dude.’

He DID scream when the doorbell rang. He panicked and quickly closed the box and stuffed it under the coffee table before he ran to look into the peep hole. His whole body sagged in relief to see his boyfriend smashing his doorbell like a maniac.

Swiftly he pulled the door open and dragged Noya in with an arm around his neck. Gotta keep the babe safe. Noya started shouting once he was inside.

“RYUU! DID YOU GET THE PACKAGE! I HAD TO SEND IT TO YOU CAUSE I HAD VOLLEYBALL PRACTICE AND YOU CAN’T BRING SOMEONE’S HEA-” Ryuu flailed and slammed his hand into his boyfriend’s mouth to shut him up.

“Yuu-chan, the apple of my eye, my dear sweetcheeks, volleyball of my soul, if you shout any louder about the decapitated head you sent me the neighbours are going to hear and they will send us to jail in three seconds flat, okay?” he hurriedly whispered into his boyfriend’s ear.

Noya stared up at him wide-eyed and nodded.

“Okay,” he sighed “okay.” He scooped Noya up with both arms like a roll of carpet pressed close to his chest and placed him gently on the living room couch. Noya sat patiently and watched as Ryuu pulled out the package he mailed.

“Now, Yuu,” He started “what in the everlivingfuck is this?” Ryuu asked in that soft hurried way that Noya knew meant he was very close to pissing his pants.

“Alright, okay, you know how I live with Chika right and he had Kei over again and I didn’t wanna hear them go at it so I went out and when I came back they were gone and I was so tired from stuff that I just passed out right?” Ryuu did not know that but now he did so he nodded anyway.

“Right! So then when I woke up I rolled over and hit this thing and I’m like ‘oh shit is that my phone!’ so I roll over too and then I see THIS dead guy staring at me!! And like I’m like what the fuck??? Right??! Cause a dead head was on my bed and I started freaking out because you know it’s a dead head!!! So I thought, what the fuck is someone trying to set me up for a murder? What if I call the police and they’re like ‘it was in your bed so you killed the dude’ and then I’ll get arrested and then we’ll never get married and I can never play volleyball again and we can’t kiss anymore and and and-“

And then Noya was crying and so Ryuu obviously would start crying and they’re both wailing and hugging each other when the door clicks open and Saeko, Akiteru, and Kei walk in. They were too busy sobbing that they didn’t hear them come in.

“He needs it by tomorrow-“

“You have to calm down, Kei,-“

“I can’t calm down when-“

“It’ll turn up eventually-“¬¬

“RYUU!” Saeko shouted when she saw Noya crying in Ryuu’s arms “You made Yuu cry?!”

They both turned to see her, faces flushed and streaked with snot and tears.

“Why are you guys crying?!” she practically screeched as she ran over to scoop them into her small arms.

“WE DIDN’T DO IT!” They both wailed.

“Guys, please calm down,” Akiteru soothed “what do you guys mean ‘you didn’t do it’? Do what?”

“I woke up and there was a dead head-“

“He mailed it to me-“

“And he didn’t make it dead!!!!!“

“It was dead when I woke up, I didn’t do anything!”

“Don’t send Yuu to jail!!”

They started wailing again and Kei has had enough of this shit. His boyfriend was freaking out about his film assignment and now his in-laws were crying like infants.

“What the hell are you guys babbling about?” He spat. That shut them both up. They both shakily pointed to the box fallen on the ground, the head had rolled out a bit. Kei’s eyes went wide.

“That’s Chikara’s!” he exclaimed.

“We killed Chikara?!”

“No, you idiots,” he rolled his eyes harshly as he scooped up the head “that’s Chikara’s prop for his shooting tomorrow in Saitama. He’s been searching for this everywhere.”

“So,” Noya softly asked “Chikara murdered someone?”

Kei deadpanned so hard he thinks he pulled a face muscle.

“Again, NO, single-celled knuckleheads. This is obviously not a real head. It’s too hard even if rigor-mortis set in because it’s made of wax and if the blood was real it wouldn’t be this bright a colour, it would be dark brown since it should be dried by now after all this time you spent tossing it around like monkeys. There would also be much more blood spewing out of it than just this. It doesn’t even smell like a dead person it just smells like the chamomile candles Chikara used to make it,” he sniffed it to confirm his statement and let Saeko and the idiot couple smell it too,

“See, it’s not real?”

Noya huffed in indignation, “Well, if it’s Chikara’s then why didn’t he keep it on his own side of the room?!”

At this Kei lightly blushed and turned his head away, “I put it under your covers because I..uhm.. didn’t want it to disturb our…date night.”

Silence rang through the room. Then a snort slipped out of Saeko’s lips. Ryuu coughed a laugh back. A small giggle from Noya. Akiteru was shaking from holding it in. Then all at once everyone started guffawing hard and loud and Kei’s face couldn’t get any redder. Kei huffed his way out of the house in that swift awkward shuffle he does when he’s embarrassed, mumbling stuff about ‘getting this back to Chika’. Everyone was bending over in laughter, Akiteru was laughing so hard he had to lean against the couch and Ryuu was slamming his fist on the couch as he cackled.

It took a while to calm down but Saeko let Noya stay, obviously and he and Ryuu spent the whole day cuddling and making out on his bed to recover from the ‘trauma’. And if they had a little ‘date night’ of their own, no dead heads were involved.

Tbh I saw this prompt and was like, 'what bullshit did my children get themselves into this time?" and my first thought was "Ah, yes. Murder."
