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.

  • 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.

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:

  • 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
  • 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)
  • NSFW FILLS: Please cross-link these fills and use clear tags in your comment. Written/text fills should be hosted at AO3 ONLY as a new, unchaptered work. 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"/>
  • Visual example
  • Replace RATING with the rating of your fill, G - E, as explained in the rules
  • Place applicable major content tags and word count before the fill, where applicable
  • NSFW FILLS: Please cross-link these fills and use clear tags in your comment. Written/text fills should be hosted at AO3 ONLY as a new, unchaptered work. Art/visual fills can be hosted anywhere. You may include a small safe-for-work preview of your work in your comment.
  • To place an image in your comment, use this code: <img src="LINK TO YOUR IMAGE" />
  • Visual example

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.

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.

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

[kou: it’s not mine]

[shin-chan❤️: That’s odd. I distinctly remember seeing you shove it under the sweater that was under my bed while I was out of the room.]
[Are you particularly in the habit of burying other people’s belongings?]

[kou: nope]
[you need to get your eyes checked sensei?]

Tajima pokes Izumi in the leg. "Who ya texting?"

"Buzz off." Izumi hunches over his phone.

[shin-chan❤️: Well, is there someone we should return it to?]

[kou: no]

[shin-chan❤️: Because it’s a really nice pen, so I imagine whoever owns it would like it back.]

[kou: don't worry about it]

[shin-chan❤️: Are you sure? I don’t want to just dump it on you if it’s not yours…]

[kou: no could u just drop it]

[shin-chan❤️: This seems to be quite a problem for you. I’ve collected quite a few things you seem to drop in other people’s houses and shoe cubbies and such.]
[Mostly in mine, that I know of.]
[Sorry, my little sister found the pocky, so that’s gone…]
[Did you get it for pocky day? :D]


Tajima's voice intrudes again. "Hey! Kou! Why're you blushing like that? Who're you talkin' to, anyway? Lemme see your phone, lemme--"

"Piss off, Yuu!" He swats him away.

Tajima flops back in his seat, whining, "Aww, you never let me see your phone!"

"That's normal!"

"Ren does." Mihashi helpfully nods.

Behind, Hamada snorts a laugh into his fist. "Yeah, but you two are weird."

Mihashi leans across curiously. "That... Is Kou...suke-kun... It's about the bag, earlier?"

Izumi narrows his eyes, not willing to snap at Mihashi. "...Maybe. If it is, it's none of you guys' business!" He pointedly scootches his chair away.

[shin-chan❤️: Oh.]
[Isn’t it more normal to actually give presents to the person, not just hide them and then leave without mentioning it?]

[kou: YES]

[shin-chan❤️: Uh]
[Not that I know of?]
[I wasn’t expecting it to involve so much caps lock.]

[kou: well this has ended up even more horrifically embarrassing than I could’ve expected]
[im just gonna bury myself and this pen under a pile of rocks]
[preferably at the bottom of the sea]

[shin-chan❤️: Don’t.]
[I like the pen a lot.]


[shin-chan❤️: I didn’t say I don’t like you as well.]

[shin-chan❤️: Kousuke-kun?]

[shin-chan❤️: Okay, I’m going to eat my lunch on the grass out back.]
[If you’d like, you could join me, and try this whole present-giving thing again.]
[(But if you’re not gonna, please let me know soon, because it’s chilly.)]

[kou: fine]
[do u like juice or milk tea]

Izumi trudges around the corner of the building and across the winter-brown grass. At least it’s sunny here, and Nishihiro actually looks reasonably comfortable where he’s sitting on the edge of a concrete block. Izumi looks down quickly, his heart thumping against his ribs and his fingers crumpling the paper bag.

Is it really this easy?

He forces himself to keep going without hesitation, walk right up beside Nishihiro and sit down next to him.

“They didn’t have peach, so I just got strawberry.” He thrusts the juice box at Nishihiro, hoping that his hand isn’t shaky.

Nishihiro takes it gingerly, giving Izumi plenty of time to admire his long fingers and a glimpse of wrist and forearm that should not be so exciting. His hands must be cold. Mine sure are.

He can feel Nishihiro’s curious gaze as he punches the straw into the box. Izumi inhales, drawn out and shaky, then sets the paper bag on his lap, kicking the ground.

“It feels dumb, now.”

“So you didn’t feel dumb hiding it under furniture?”

Anyone, anyone else, and the words would feel sarcastic, but from Nishihiro, though there’s laughter running underneath, it’s gentle. Izumi lets that warm him, bolster him. More restrainedly, he holds the bag out.

“Here. It’s for you.”

Nishihiro takes it, setting it off to the side. “See, this way, the other person has a chance to say thank you.”

Izumi opens his mouth to retort that it’s not needed but freezes when lips press against his cheek.

The early afternoon is so icy, his ass freezing on the concrete, but Nishihiro’s lips are a ripple of heat through him, calm and still and yet shaking him. When he draws back, Izumi notices they’re a little chapped. He decides he likes that in some weird way.

“Oh my gosh…”

He looks over to find Nishihiro red out to his ears, both hands over his face. Izumi’s heart skips, and he can’t hold back a goofy smile. All in a rush, he grabs Nishihiro’s hands, cradling them between his own.

“…They looked cold,” he offers.

“So’re yours.” Nishihiro scoots a little closer to him. “I like your presents.”

Izumi just squeezes his hands in response, smiling down at them.
