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.

Tooru stared.

Koushi shuffled uncomfortable and tried to snuggle deeper into the blanked that still smelled like Tooru, which was surprisingly nice. His one-night-stand was still staring at the small room that now was not-so-much covered by a curtain, revealing tons of papier mâché, textiles, and acrylic paint.

“I feel so dumb, oh gosh,” Tooru moaned, his face covered by his hands in embarrassment, apparently. Koushi chuckled silently as Tooru let himself fall back on the bed with a small thud.

So Tooru had found out about his costume artist projects.

“Refreshing-kun, this is … probably the most embarrassing thing to say but, please, don’t open your mail the next few days.” Tooru’s doe-eyes searched for him, almost pleadingly. Gosh, Koushi was almost considering to keep him.

“Okay, but may I inquire why?” Koushi stroked Tooru’s hair gently; it was so nice, and soft, and really, he shouldn’t be so fond of him.

“I did something very stupid, and while I probably lost all my dignity last night, it’s nothing even slightly comparable. Please, Kou-chan?” Tooru had turned onto his belly, tracing Koushi’s hand with his fingers, almost reverently.

“I need to pay my bills, you know. I can’t just not open the mail.”

“It says that it’s from me. Just. Don’t open it. I can’t go to classes if you do, you will talk badly about me, I know it.”

“Why the hell shouldn’t you go to your classes, we don’t even have the same subjects. And no, I won’t. Don’t be so melodramatic.”

Tooru gasped. “I’m not melodramatic!”

“Absolutely not,” Koushi grinned. It earned him a glare, a pout, and a poke in the side. Koushi squeaked in surprise. But before Tooru could launch another tickle attack, Koushi was on him, rolling them around and almost making them fall out of bed.

Tooru gasped and jerked between fits of laughter.

“You are malicious,” he panted as Koushi had pinned his hands above his head. He felt so nice underneath him, even better now that they were sober, and Koushi really wouldn’t mind to do it again, right here, right now.

“That’s true,” he said, leaning down to capture Tooru’s lips with his own, dragging the most delicious moan out of him, and really, he probably should keep him.


When Koushi woke up on Saturday, Tooru’s arms were sluggishly wrapped around him, his face soft and relaxed, hair dishevelled to no end, and he looked so cute, like, really, this wasn’t fair. Koushi tried to peel himself out of the knot that were their limbs and the shared blanket without waking Tooru up, and stumbled to the bathroom. He seriously admired how many bruises Tooru was even able to leave on his skin as he showered, and after setting up the water for his tea and simultaneously dressing with whatever clothes he could grab first, he made his way down to the mailbox. There were two bills, one for his phone and one from the electricity company, and a plain envelope that felt oddly heavy.

He walked back upstairs, opening the first envelope as he unlocked his door and finding Tooru still vast asleep. The bills were just as usual so he didn’t bother checking them twice, but the other envelope was picking his interest.

From: Oikawa

With another glance at his now more or less boyfriend, he opened it. Seriously, there couldn’t be something so horribly embarrassing, right?

Out tumbled a bunch of photos and a letter.

I knew you are an alien! the letter started. Underneath a list like in an autopsy report, Exhibit A: You eat food no-one else would even consider eating!

Exhibit B: It’s impossible to see that far without a telescope, your eyes are inhuman!!

Exhibit C:

- Koushi realised that the photos in the envelope had something scribbled in the backside. Exhibit A apparently was Koushi enjoying broccoli at lunch. Exhibit B was hard to make out, but apparently that was the point. There were other pictures of Koushi, one at a convention where he had talked to the most different cosplayers, one of his lack of hair products when they had training camp together, and one even dating back to 2012 where Tooru believed a special glow was radiating from Koushi. However, Koushi really had to laugh at one picture, apparently taken from behind a key hole, where nothing else but a part of some kind of red crustacean was visible. That particular costume had been for the Theatre Club at their university, but it admittedly had a similarity with the cockroach in Man In Black.

Tooru stirred.

“Why aren’t you here, Kou-chaaan,” he wailed and blinked at Koushi. Suddenly, he jerked into a sitting position. “What do you have there?!”

“Just my mail,” Koushi said with a smug expression, lifting the envelopes, accidentally letting some of the photos fall to the floor. Tooru stared.

“I told you to not open it!”

playlist fill, 8 tracks

Catch by Dresses
' Don't wanna be another one that you throw back
This is a two-way street, not a cul-de-sac
And if I threw my heart and made a pass
Would your hands reach out when I said "Catch" '

Please Don’t Go by Joel Adams
' I'll wanna take it back and start again
Most nights I pray for you to come home
Praying to the Lord
Praying for my soul '

Nightlight by The Ceremonies
' Waiting through the night
So I can say you're

I won't waste a thought
Upon the sensation of
Unreachable '

Good Liars by Blajk
' The play of midnight shows you lie
Back gasping
With a necklace of stars
While my guitar weeps a single tear
Hands up……I raise both my hands up
I’ll wave my standard from the rooftop
Of a car
If I’m a liar I’m a good one

I am alive
When I am in love'

Fires At Night by Forget Gravity
' Light fires at night to push back the void.
The warmth can't escape it, I reach my fingers to my face.

Something to hold.
Somewhere I'll find. '

I Don’t Wanna Be Alone by James Meyers
' They say you might be alone in the world, out there
They say that you gotta go home, that you can't stay here
And, oh, I don't wnna be alone '

Blue Skies (Revoke Remix) by Lenka
' That it's gonna be blue skies for you and I
We'll step out of the shadows and walk into the light
Yeah it's gonna be blue skies for you and I
But my heart beats slow as the storm carries on up high
And the clouds roll by '

Jupiter by Sleeping At Last
' While collecting the stars, I connected the dots.
I don’t know who I am, but now I know who I’m not.
I’m just a curious speck that got caught up in orbit.
Like a magnet it beckoned my metals toward it. '
