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.

Daichi and Suga fall into step easily they clasped their hands together. The air between them is thick with the realisation that Suga just won his first poke badge. Daichi seems to be a bit more fidgety than usual, twisting his other hand in his shirt.
Suga can feel his boyfriend's palm sweating a bit in the cool night air.
"Hey Suga, let’s go to the park! We should let your pokemon out a bit. I mean it was also their win.”
“Yeah.” Suga nods his head instinctively patting the pokeballs on his belt.
“I didn’t know you had started training pokemon.” Suga commented on the lone pokeball on Daichi’s belt.
Daichi laughs nervously, “I guess you’re rubbing off on me. I love watching you care for your pokemon so I thought I’d try.”
“Why didn’t you tell me I would have helped you.” Suga punches Daichi’s shoulder.
“I wanted to surprise you!” Daichi protests a bit and rubs the red that grows on his neck.
The cool night air washes over them as they fall back into a comfortable silence. Suga’s ratty shoes make some weird squeaking sound on the pavement. The couple approaches the pokepark that has a smattering of pokemon bounding around within the fenced in area. They see a few familiar faces, but Daichi steers them to one of the benches where he sits Suga down.
“What’s all this about?” Suga smirks quirking an eyebrow teasingly. He crosses one of his legs over his other to put himself in a more flirtatious pose.
“First you should let your pokemon out.” Daichi’s cheeks look a bit red, but he hides his embarrassment well as Suga takes out his pokeballs and releases the pokemon one by one into the park. The bunera hops over and rubs noses with the other bunera around the park.
“Anyways what were you saying Daichi?” Suga looks back up at his boyfriend who pulls out his pokeball and gets on one knee before Suga. He clicks open the pokeball and it produces a piplup who seems to waddle about in confusion at first, but turns towards Suga and seems to remember himself. The Piplup has a ring on his right flipper and he holds out his flippers to Suga, reaching to be held.
“Um,” Daichi clears his throat, “Would you do me the honour of marrying me?”
A few of the other pokemon trainers stare and chuckle at the spectacle, but Suga only has eyes for Daichi and the ring on the Piplup. His voice catches in his throat, but he regains his composure long enough to lose it again and launch himself at Daichi. He squishes the Piplup between them who seems to revel in the warmth.
“Of course I do you big dork.” He pulls back a bit and looks him in the eye, flashing one of his characteristic smirks, and gives Daichi a peck on the lips.
A few of the trainers shout and clap at the couple. They blush, but Suga recovers the fastest.
“So you gonna put the ring on me or what?” He holds out his right hand expectantly.

The pokéball comes in a carefully wrapped parcel with familiar handwriting, and Koushi doesn't even need to open it to know what it is. He sits in one of the chairs at the Pokémon Center after he's thanked the delivery girl, and smiles down at the simple brown wrapping without making a single move to tear it open.

Beside him, his Murkrow makes an inquisitve croak. He strokes his fingers over her feathers, before he puts the parcel in his bag. "Come on, let's go. We don't want to be late."

They walk through the familiar streets of the town that they've spent the past week in, training diligently to hone their skills, until Koushi's entire team was strong and confident enough to not only challenge the gym leader, but to win. He's seen people come and go much quicker, and he's seen those who have been at it for longer than he has. He doesn't let it affect him either way; he knows that everyone goes at their own pace. The only thing he can do is try his best, and make sure that he properly rises to the challenges in front of him.

There's one gym badge pinned to his jacket and he knows what that means. It's more than just the first step on the path that he's wanted for years. It's more than a pass that will allow him to access new challenges.

It means that he is, however briefly, coming home.

Daichi's gym, the second along the route to becoming Pokémon Champion, is his next destination. Koushi has always been happy to help at the gym. He's never fought the trainers that come to challenge the gym and he's never felt the need to, when Tanaka and Nishinoya are so eager to do this themselves. He's always been more focused on helping to actually run the gym, doing all of the back of house work to keep it going. If he wants to fight challengers at the gym as well, he'll need to prove himself by collecting all of the badges first. Daichi is completely supportive of him, and even if it means that they'll have to be apart for a while, Koushi knows that it'll be worth it.

Besides, home is never too far away.

Dachi is waiting for him at the very entrance of the town, and Koushi laughs at the sight. The sun is setting and the gym is already closed anyway. Daichi grins at him and opens his arms, welcoming Koushi home with a tight hug.

"You could have waited at home," Koushi murmurs, kissing Daichi's cheek.

"I got impatient," Daichi replies, his hands resting on Koushi's shoulders. "Look at you. One gym badge already. I'm proud of you."

Smirking, Koushi punches Daichi lightly in the side. "You can stop pretending you're a proud old professor, now. You're the next gym leader, you know. I'm going to defeat you. Lovingly."

"I'm not going easy on you just because you're my favourite person," Daichi replies, wrapping his arm around Koushi's waist. "Did you get my present?"

"I did," Koushi pulls the parcel out of his bag. "I waited until I was home, just like you could have, instead of mailing it out to me. Besides, I know you would have wanted to watch me open it anyway."

"I put a lot of thought into this," Daichi tells him. "So, yeah. I'm glad I get to watch you open it."

Smiling, Koushi opens the parcel, taking the pokéball out. He rolls it in his palm a little, getting a proper feel for it, and then releases the Pokémon inside.

A Phantump floats in the air in front of him, letting out a ghostly hum. Koushi laughs.

"Really, Daichi?" Koushi holds his hands out, thrilled when the Phantump floats towards him. He smiles down at it, fingers stroking over the bark. "You're giving me a ghost and grass type?"

"The next gym after mine is predominantly water type," Daichi says, looking away. "I'm helping."

"Right." Koushi laughs louder, punching Daichi in the side a little harder this time. "Nothing to do with the fact that your gym is predominantly dark and flying type?"

Folding his arms across his chest, Daichi grins. "Think of it as a challenge."

"Challenge accepted," Koushi replies, smiling at his Phantump again. "Don't you worry. My boyfriend thinks he's funny, but we're the ones who will be laughing when we crush him."

After all, Koushi has been at Daichi's gym for the past few years. He knows how Daichi fights. He knows how all of Daichi's strategies work. He already has a few tricks up his sleeves.

and yes, i didn't even realize at the time but i did the blue/orange theme again. that happens a lot lol, i can't help it i love complimentary colors

"ready to fight and smooch" is an excellent baseline for an otp i think
