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.

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

Required Work Minimums:

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.

Fill: Team Grandstand, G

He found the bag sitting in the bottom of his locker one afternoon. The first time something had appeared in his locker without his knowledge, he had been startled, but it had happened enough times since then that now he didn't even need to look at the note to know who it was from.

He looked anyway.
To: Suga
From: Daichi
Next time, pay me back!

Suga smiled as he took out the plastic bag under the note; its contents rattled just as he had expected. He unwrapped the plastic and took out the small bottle of painkillers inside. Daichi had brought them just in time; he had emptied the old bottle earlier that morning.

He tucked Daichi's note into his pocket. Daichi always complained about Suga forgetting to give him money for first aid supplies, but they both knew that Daichi was the one to use most of them. Suga would never admit it to anyone, but there was a reason he thought of the little box he always carried as his "Daichi Maintenance Kit." He had slowly tailored the contents over the past three years until it had everything he needed to care for his captain—painkillers for when Daichi gave himself a headache worrying, cough drops for when he lost his voice after too many hours spent running practice, tape for when he jammed a finger on the ball, or when one of his players did, and tucked at the very bottom during exam weeks, a couple of packages of instant ramen for when Daichi was too busy to remember to eat.

After checking one last time that everything was in order, he went down to the gym for practice.

He could tell the moment that he walked in that Daichi was nursing another headache. It was subtle, but he had spent enough hours studying his boyfriend to pick up on the way his jaw was clenched, or the way he flinched slightly at Hinata's shout.

He walked across the gym, already opening his bag as he kissed Daichi on the cheek and whispered "headache?" The way Daichi looked at him expectantly told him his suspicion was correct, and he took out the bottle Daichi had left in his locker earlier.

Perhaps it would have been easier for Daichi to keep the bottle himself, since he was usually the one using it, but then Suga couldn't have kissed him tenderly on the temple as he pressed a couple of pills into his hand.

The care and maintenance of a Daichi was an art form, and Suga liked to think of himself as Karasuno's resident expert.

This is so sweet, I love Suga so patiently taking care of Daichi. I hope he's suitably rewarded later. :)

Thanks so much for filling my prompt!

I'm glad you liked it! I like to imagine that when they have a break after exam weeks/stressful matches/etc., Daichi cooks them a nice dinner or does something equally sweet in thanks.
