Bonus Round 1: AUs

AUs

This round is CLOSED as of 7PM EDT on 10 June. Late comments are screened and will not receive points.



This popular round is back once again! To begin this year's SASO, we encourage you to let your mind run wild with alternate ideas and settings.


Please read this whole post before commenting to ensure that your team gets the most points possible. (There are changes from last year!)

RULES
  • Submit prompts by commenting to this post with an alternate universe idea, along with a ship from one of our nominated fandoms. There's a comment template below for your convenience.
    • Your prompt MUST include some kind of relationship. (This is not the sports anime gen olympics.) Platonic relationships are indicated by an "&" between the names (e.g., Izumi & Sakaeguchi). Non-platonic relationships use "/" (e.g., Izumi/Sakaeguchi). Please don't say "Any pairing," either!
  • An AU can be a canon divergence, e.g. "what if [character] was the Team Captain instead of the canon captain character?", or a completely different setting altogether, e.g., pop idol AU, coffee shop AU, superheroes AU, etc.
  • Fill prompts by leaving a responding comment to the prompt with your newly-created work.
  • Remember to follow the general bonus round rules, outlined here.

First 4 fills by any member of your team: 20 points each
Fills 5-10: 15 points each
Fills 11-20: 5 points each
Fills 21-50: 2 points each
Fills 51+: 1 point each

All scored content must be created new for this round.

***

Oshitari is no stranger to the Archives. He's lived here for almost as long as he can remember, ever since the year the plague wiped out most of his village and the silver-haired man in formal robes had taken him from the orphanage to his new home. Oshitari has only seen his patron occasionally in the years since, but he's come to know the Archives even better than he knows himself.

Or so he thinks until the day a stranger appears at his desk with a stack of books in varying states of repair.

"These are for you," the stranger says, and Oshitari is confused. The Archive is locked; researchers never set foot beyond the Reading Room, and even most of the staff are barred from the depths of the stacks where he works. He thought he knew all of the other staff in the back rooms, but he's never seen this face before. The stranger's not wearing the rust-red robes of an apprentice either; he's wearing the grey of an Archivist, but the style is one Oshitari recognizes only from books. It's at least a century out of date, but the stranger doesn't look nearly old enough for that.

"I don't understand," Oshitari says.

"These are for you," the stranger repeats, setting the books down on Oshitari's desk.

Oshitari looks at the titles and is even more confused. "I don't understand," he finds himself repeating, but for a different reason this time. "I've never heard of any of these before." It's a sentence that feels wrong as he says it; even if he hasn't read all of them, he at least recognizes most of the volumes in the labyrinth of shelves behind the Archives' walls. To see one book he's never seen before is unusual enough; an entire armful is unheard of.

"Of course you don't," the stranger says with a smile, as if he was expecting that reaction. "They're Lost Books. The old Curator has passed away, and the collection has passed to you."

"Lost Books?" Oshitari asks. He's certain he must have misheard. He's heard the rumors that circulate among the staff, but has always written it off as office gossip. Sometimes, when he's alone in the depths of the stacks late at night, he's sworn he's heard the books whispering about it too in a quiet rustle of paper. It's harder not to trust those whispers, but he's always forced himself to ignore them. The notice by the stacks entrance warning against wandering too deep or straying from the task at hand isn't just for show; he's running out of fingers to count the Archivists who have disappeared or been found dead in the stacks after losing their way, and he refuses to be another name on the list.

But the whispers have followed Oshitari since the day he first set foot in the Archives, and it's been growing increasingly difficult to ignore the murmurs of the pages whenever he ventures into the stacks alone. Murmurs of a collection that, even if it exists, is as much rumor as reality.

The stranger pushes the stack of books closer to him. "Yes. The lost books. When the time comes that only a single copy of a book remains, and it is about to be forgotten, it comes to us, and we add it to our collection. These came to us last night after the old Curator passed on."

"Where is this collection?" Oshitari asks, his voice barely more than a whisper.

"Come, and I'll show you," the stranger says. He leads Oshitari through the stacks, past gaps between shelves and through doorways Oshitari swears he's never seen before. As they walk, the books around them rustle in greeting, pages fluttering with more chatter than Oshitari has ever heard from them before. Even the ancient, tired books bound in heavy leather and wood that Oshitari has never heard before whisper a low greeting. Over the rustle of the pages, only a single set of footsteps echoes off of the stone walls.

Finally, the stacks open up, and Oshitari finds himself standing in front of a windowless room deep in the stacks, shelves stretching out from it farther than the eye can see in all directions.

The stranger presses his hand to the heavy metal door set in the wall, and the air seems to shimmer for a moment before the latch clicks and the door swings open. "Welcome," he says in a voice that's no longer human, "to the heart of the Archives."

***

Riku knew that his brother had a gift. He was painfully well aware of that fact. He lived with the guy for Christ sake. He could see with his own two eyes the wonders he could do, be it making objects levitate or starting up a fire with just literally a snap of his fingers.
And even he didn’t, their parents would make sure he remembered that fact. It was always “Tomoe this” and “Tomoe that” and frankly, as the less talented of the two, Riku was starting to feel incredibly… angry at his brother. And he didn’t even understand why. It was a bit irrational after all. Tomoe had been nothing but caring and supportive but as time went by, the sense of inferiority whenever he was reminded of how less he was compared to his oh-so-wonderful brother, Riku’s admiration slowly turned to jealousy, and in the end, in hate. He was getting sick of hearing people praising his brother right and left because to him it always sounded like they didn’t understand why Riku couldn’t do the same things.

And honestly, he was starting to wonder as well.

After all, Tomoe was four when his magic started manifesting itself. The average was seven. Riku himself had manifested at six. By that time, his brother had already mastered all of the basic spells. At ten, he had won his first magic tournament. He was so talented, it was like magic came as naturally to him as breathing. He had even been scouted by a prestigious magic school in America. Their parents were ecstatic. Countless leaflets could be spotted around the house be it about the school itself or the area it was in thought a school representative had already come by to explain everything there was to know and answer all of their questions. Their parents were about to send one of their son at the other end of the globe. Riku envied him a lot. He knew he was doing better than the others who were his age but he wasn’t Tomoe-talented. He claimed that it was just because he had manifested earlier and that he spent a lot of time studying and trying out spells but there came a point beyond which no cramming could take you. And he had gotten there when he had started using spells without needing to utter them aloud. It was still a very rare occurrence, even in this magic world. The worst was that the first time it had happened had been on accident. And in front of his entire school. It was supposed to be part of the school play. It was supposed to be pure pretend. The public was supposed to be laughing at the character’s futile and ridiculous attempt at turning off the lights with just a snap of his fingers. Instead of that, darkness effectively dawned on the room. After a few minutes of pure confusion and reproaches yelled, it had seemed obvious that the culprit had indeed been Tomoe.

Riku had had to leave the school altogether, not being able to support all of the praises Tomoe was being showered with. This night, he has been scrolling on the Internet, feeling miserable, when he had seen an article around a theory that had been getting popular among the scientists who did research in the magical field.

Names.

Apparently, according to their names, people had affinities with different magic fields. Riku thought about it. The character for his brother name did refer to a perfectly symmetrical round of symbol which were, as the article said, the most powerful kind. And he even got a bonus because it wasn’t of current use anymore in Japanese. Riku’s on the contrary, wasn’t common per say but it was still of use. However, the fact that the pronunciation was unusual certainly meant that he would still get an advantage on others. And his affinity lied with the land.

Well, if he believed in that kind of things that is.

But, just in case, he was willing to try it.

In less than ten minutes, he had sneaked out of the house and was in their backyard.

Land, they had said. That means earth is fine, right ?

Riku crouched down and pressed his right hand flat against the grass. Closing his eyes, he thought hard about the most basic and easiest spell involving earth he could think of. And there, he could feel it : raw energy coming from the earth under his palm. In the instant he took to marvel at the feeling, it was gone. He frowned and tried focusing again but it seemed like he had already been drained from all of his energy.

Too young, he instantly thought.

At just age twelve, his powers hadn’t fully developed yet. He would have to wait. To practice.

And someday... one day....

Riku smiled.

He would be able to go against Tomoe in a battle of magic.
