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.


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

Required Work Minimums:
  • 400 words (prose)
  • 400px by 400px (art)

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.

If you see anyone breaking the code of conduct (e.g., causing drama, being rude) anywhere (not just DW), please contact the mods immediately.


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 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.


Etc.
If you're hunting through the prompts looking for what to fill, a good trick is to view top-level comments only (see the line of links below this post).

Have a question? Check The FAQ first. If you still need help, feel free to contact the mods. Happy fanworking!

Title: Trash King and his maid.

***

“Who do you think you are to give me orders, pretense king?”

The walls around them were dirtied and showed clearly long passage of time and the throne in which the pretense king set was nothing more than an overused red armchair that was already losing its color and now was closer to a pale shade of pink.

The man itself was taller and, probably, older than Ryoma, his blond hair was adorned by an iron crown that matched perfectly the decadence of that what was supposed to be a throne room.

“Chibi, how dare you speak with me in such a meaning, I am Keigo Atobe, the King in these streets and you should show me some respect!”

Ryoma giggled in return, that man had no way of knowing he was the crown prince and that reign was just so puny compared to the castle in which he used to leave that he could not help but mock it. “Great castle you have, Monkey-King.”

The man named Atobe got up from his armchair and shouted, letting the iron crown on his head fall to the floor.

“Don’t you dare to mock my kingdom! Kabaji, bring to him Atobe’s justice!”
A man that was double of Ryoma’s height appeared from beyond the throne and moved on his direction, holding him by the arms and completely stopping his movement like it was nothing.

“Wait! King of whatever, Atobe! Wait!” Ryoma really did not want to pass another week thrown on a street prison, especially not for a mad King that was Lord of a Trashcan.

“I am King of the streets, peasant!”

“I know of Royal costumes I can teach you them to make your kingdom better!” Ryoma blurted it out without thinking just to not be thrown on someplace even more disgusting than the one he was already.

“Anh, and how to you know of those costumes, chibi?” The King seemed interested now and set back on his armchair.

“I have worked on the palace before! So I know how a true kingdom should be.”

“Let him go, Kabaji! You hereby are nominated as the maid of my kingdom! Your job is to tie up my palace until it is better than the Royal one!”

“… I am not going to be your maid, Trash King.” Ryoma’s sharp tongue could not be contained even by the fear of being thrown in an even worst place.

“Kabaji?”

“Usu.”

“Bring the maid clothes to our new guest.”

“Usu.”

There were a lot of reasons to love Kirihara (his smile, his unexpected tears, his loyalty, his fierce determination) but just as many to hate them.

His demon side, however – that was not a reason to hate him. At least not to Akutsu.

“Come on,” he goaded, throwing another punch at Kirihara’s face. Kirihara blocked with his forearm, adding a new bruise to the already purpling skin, and Akutsu laughed. “Is that the best you can do? All tough on the court but pathetic off it.”

“Don’t test me,” Kirihara growled and was that a hint of red to his skin? It was hard to tell with both of them so flushed from the fight but Akutsu was almost sure – yes, yes, that was red. He grinned, savage and bloody from where Kirihara had snapped an uppercut into his nose and sent blood streaming down Akutsu’s mouth.

“Test you? I’m only toying with you. You aren’t worth testing.” Akutsu spat blood on Kirihara’s clean white sneaker and Kirihara howled.

He charged forward and Akutsu had just enough time to register the red that bled into the whites of Kirihara’s eyes before he was the one throwing his arms up, blocking and dodging the flurry of blows that were now being thrown with actual strength behind them.

The bars of the cage rattled, the crowd yelling with utter impunity. Some of them were shouting DEVIL DEVIL, cheering for the showy Kirihara but others, veterans of the cage fights, were throwing their support behind the long-time champion Akutsu.

A lucky side-sweep kick from Akutsu sent Kirihara falling backwards onto the floor but when Akutsu dropped down onto him, closing his hands around Kirihara’s red (and hot, far hotter than humans felt) throat, Kirihara dislodged him with a kick to the stomach that was so hard that Akutsu couldn’t breathe for a second. He stumbled back and then Kirihara was on him, knocking him down and holding him in place with inhuman power.

Kirihara’s eyes glinted like two tiny dots of poison, white hair falling over a blood red forehead, and Akutsu had never felt so alive as with Kirihara’s hands closing ever more tightly around his throat.

“STOP!” The referee called out and Kirihara snarled, a wolf deprived of its prey, but slowly released Akutsu. Where Kirihara’s fingers had been, the flesh throbbed as hot and hard as Akutsu’s very inconvenient erection.

Were I to fill this twice (if only the rules would allow) I would make Kaidou Fenchurch, and I wouldn’t even apologize for it.

***

Inui Sadaharu was a classic middle management type. This was something that every supervisor that had ever reviewed him had agreed upon, but when asked what exactly he was suited to be managing, this was typically met with a flurry of coughing and humming and insistence that a ringing phone could be heard just outside the room, with excessive promises that they would be right back in just one moment, it’s just that they were waiting on a very important phone call, you see, and they would just kick themself if they missed it on account of this.

Inui’s most notable characteristic was that he was quite tall. Inui’s second most notable characteristic was that his face inspired fear in all around him (which was only the second most notable thing because of how long it took one to look up enough to see his looming face). It wasn’t that he scowled constantly or was particularly malicious looking. No, it was simply that his face did not seem to behave as a normal individual would expect. It was a very long face, much as the rest of him was elongated in some way, with a mouth that seemed to be there more out of obligation than out of any real desire to be a normal, functioning mouth. His hair didn’t seem to want anything to do with normal Euclidean geometry, although Inui himself was highly educated and well versed in the topic himself. Perhaps most terrifying were his eyes; or rather the lack thereof, as the existence of said eyes was a hotly debated topic among his coworkers at the Sirius Cybernetics Corporation (normally around the water cooler, in hushed tones, on a Friday afternoon when a topic was needed to discuss to make it to quitting time).

Smart glasses were one of Sirius Cybernetic’s few failures, and be that as it may, Inui was the owner of one of the few pairs that had ever been made, the two sharp, chucky rectangles molding to his face as if they had been made for it. The glasses had failed to make it to mass production due to the fact that, in addition to being ridiculously unstylish, an incessant glow seeped out from them that was typically distracting to anyone trying to interact with the user, and generally made most users feel somewhat embarrassed.

Whether or not Inui had a concept of embarrassment was also a hotly debated topic.

Most would not say that Inui was a “passionate” person, but there were a few things that seemed to make him at least consider the emotion. The first of these was… data. Inui loved data because it was his bread and butter. He loved taking the slew of information of daily life and distilling it into something he could carry around with him and make sense of. It was a measure of control for him in a universe that was altogether unpredictable. He was known for his notebook that was never more than an arm’s reach away from him.

(His smart glasses had a note taking function, of course. No one knew if Inui just preferred the tactile feel of writing things down, or if he wanted to make a show of writing things down in front of people to make sure they knew he was doing it.)

The second thing that Inui was potentially passionate about was perhaps a bit less easily predicted: Juice. Inui loved juice. Not just drinking it. Making it, designing it, calculating the nutritional value of it, and lovingly scribbling down recipes for it in his notebook companion.

It was for this reason that Inui found himself as middle management in Sirius Cybernetic’s Nutri-Matic Drink Department. Not because he was good at making drinks — no, as a matter of fact, every single juice that Inui made, despite the love and care that went into them, were a health risk that HR could not legally allow to be brought onto company premises — but because of a much simpler, well established fact.

Inui was a classic middle management type.

Unbeknownst to the powers that be that put Inui in the Drink Department to simply shove him somewhere away from unsuspecting bystanders, at nearly the exact same time a fad diet had begun sweeping the galaxy that had a very simple premise: If something tasted good, it wasn’t healthy. And so when people went to a gym and grabbed for a healthy beverage, packed with vitamins and superfoods and other such healthy things, they simply could not be seen by their friends drinking something that tasted good. The leafy part of kale, which had traditionally been lining for birdcages in most societies, became such a high demand juice component that hunting it became illegal to anyone without a Sirius Cybernetics employee badge.

Today, of course, the Nutri-Matic Drink Synthesiser is known as one of the most successful pieces of equipment ever produced by the Sirius Cybernetics Corporation, with every street corner sporting one of the machines, spouting its signature “Share and Enjoy!” slogan. But its success is not only due to its ubiquity (and the hunting of the noble kale beast to near extinction). It is also due to a lack of overhead in the Drinks Department.

Inui was nothing if not efficient, and he continued to optimize his department, again and again and again, each time finding more ways to whittle down to fewer and fewer and fewer employees.

Today there is only one employee of the Sirius Cybernetics Corporation Drinks Department.

Inui hung from the ceiling, and frowned. Hanging from the ceiling was not new from him or reason to frown; Inui had found quite some time ago that in order to operate the entire department by himself, the use of his body was a useless frivolity that he had no time for. Suspending himself from the ceiling while his body was jacked into the computer systems in every sort of way his company had ever developed had not only been the logical course of action, but was also just kinda cool.

No, Inui’s frowning had a different cause entirely. Inui had access to the sensor data of all Nutri-Matic Drink Synthesisers in the entire galaxy. For the most part, he let all of them run on auto-pilot, save for one.

Kaidou Kaoru was an athlete. Inui wasn’t sure what kind of athlete per se, simply that Kaidou was an avid runner. He ran in the mornings and the afternoons and evenings, and once in awhile in the middle of the night, as if to switch things up a little bit once in awhile. Kaidou had an interesting genetic makeup that was tantalizing to analyze, some kind of blend between reptilian and mammalian features that came together in an oddly pleasing configuration that made the sensors hooked up to Inui’s anatomy run a little hot.

Inui knew exactly when Kaidou would show up to the park to run. And every day they would have nearly the same conversation.

“Hello Kaidou,” Inui would say, overriding the Nutri-Matic’s chipper voice with his own low, rumbling, slightly-ominous one. Normally the machine would greet others with one of its cheery stock phrases like “Share and Enjoy!” or “Have a Cold Bottle of Health!” or “Kale May Be Endangered, But Fitness Is Forever!”

Kaidou’s eyebrow would arch just slightly. Kaidou’s eyebrows were a very fascinating part of his anatomy, in Inui’s opinion, sweeping curling brows that reminded Inui of the whip-tailed lizard of Ceti Alpha Six that would often kill its prey with its razor sharp tail.

Inui decided he could get behind such an animal.

“Hello,” Kaidou would reply to the machine. He wouldn’t say anything else, as the machine had said nothing else that required a reply. Inui admired the efficiency.

“Would you like a pre-run drink?” Inui would ask him. “I’m working on a special blend that I think will be expertly tailored to your anatomy and athletic demands. I’m still formulating a name for it.” This was always the case. Inui was always formulating a blend especially for Kaidou, somewhere in the back of his mind. It was always just for him and Inui was always stuck on the name, because it had to be a perfect name. If asked why it needed to be perfect, Inui would not have been able to provide a good answer, simply would have coughed and feigned having to take a tech support call from Pollux Twelve, where the population was particularly perplexed about the function of the “Start” button on the Nutri-Matics.

“No thank you,” Kaidou would always say, going a bit pale. Inui would worry a little bit about the pale look, and add a note to himself to make sure to add some iron to Kaidou’s next drink to make sure he wasn’t anemic. “I’ll have a drink after my run,” Kaidou would say, not quite looking at the Nutri-Matic. “But if you could top off my water bottle, I would appreciate it.”

Sirius Cybernetics Nutri-Matic Drink Synthesisers are many things, but they are not glorified water fountains. This is listed somewhere in the owner’s manual, right under the clause about flavor being a privilege and not a right. However, Inui always lets Kaidou twist open his water bottle and slip it under the dispenser of the Nutri-Matic. He lets himself log the sensation of Kaidou’s deft fingers brushing against the sensitive drink bay of the machine, and lets the sensation seep for a minute before beginning to dispense plain, unaltered water. He always dispenses it a little slower than company policy dictates.

“Thanks,” Kaidou would say before running away.

Sometime later he would reappear, panting heavily with sweat dripping down over rounded cheeks and sharp collarbones, and Inui’s processors would stutter. “Would you like that drink now?” Inui would ask, and Kaidou would hiss in reply. An actual reptilian hiss that didn’t seem to mean anything in any language that Inui’s babelfish could parse, but Inui imagined possible meanings anyway.

Inui never got the pleasure of seeing Kaidou drink his juice as he always jogged away quickly after getting it, but Inui assumed he liked it. He kept coming back, in any case, so the data seemed to support that.

Inui was frowning today though, because it was just past midday, and he still hasn’t seen Kaidou. No morning run, no lunchtime jog around the park, no late-night sprint the night before to make things interesting.

Inui’s personal Nutri-Matic gurgled slightly as it refilled Inui’s IV bag with a squelch. (Inui was far too busy for normal eating, and he didn’t miss it, either.) He quickly flicked through the sensor feeds of all the Nutri-Matics throughout the galaxy, and found no sign of his reptilian-hybrid quarry. Inui’s sensor net of juice machines was quite all-encompassing, so this was a bit worrying.

A noise came from up above, and Inui actually deigned to look up at it. Something like rubble shifting and settling. Normally, this wasn’t much cause for concern; the Drink Department had fallen victim to several natural disasters and corporate attacks from competitors, but Inui had never concerned himself with it, as he was safe and enclosed in the lower levels. But the sheer volume of shifting and settling was uncomfortable. Inui scanned the ceiling from which he was suspended and found it sound, but it brought him no sense of comfort.

A larger clatter came, and a cloud of dust kicked up in front of him, obscuring a large mass that had fallen from the upper level. Inui didn’t move — had no real choice in the matter anymore, to be honest — but instead watched on with fascination.

A figure emerged from the cloud, dusting himself off gently. He was large and muscular, some blend of reptilian and mammalian features that came out to be strangely pleasing.

“Kaidou,” said Inui. He was fairly sure it should be said with shock, but Inui wasn’t sure he remembered how to inflect his voice that way.

“Uh, hi,” said Kaidou.

Inui blinked. He hadn’t blinked in a very, very long time, and his eyes couldn’t seem to decide if they still liked the feeling of moisture on them. “What…” said Inui, before he paused, unsure what the correct thing to ask in this situation was. He had thousands of questions, but unfortunately verbal conversations had a pesky limitation for one thing at a time. “What are you doing here?” he finally settled on.

“I, um…” Kaidou coughed a bit, clearing his lungs of the dust. “Would you like to get lunch sometime?”

Inui blinked again, and his eyes began to remember that moisture was their natural state, at one point. They began warming up to the idea.

“Well, I umm…” Inui wasn’t sure where to start with that question either.

Inui’s IV bag squelched again, and for the first time in what may have been ever, Inui felt something like embarrassment. His eyes shifted, searching for something to look at that wasn’t a source of confusion or embarrassment, and somewhere around Kaidou’s feet, they found a good target.

A notebook.

His notebook.

Inui had had to give up many things in order to become the head manager and sole employee of the drinks department, and most of them he did not miss. But suddenly, now, his fingers twitched with a longing for the pure, tactile sensation of recording data in his notebook.

“Sure,” said Inui, ignoring all of the thousands of questions screaming in the back of his head and, for once, acting on nothing but a simple desire to do something. “Though I’m… a bit tied up right now.”

Kaidou shrugged. “I can help out with that.”

Inui smiled.



Across the known galaxy, a sweeping outage of service in the Nutri-Matic Drinks Synthesisers causes public outrage, which infuriated health nuts as they sipped drinks with sugar for the first time in decades and made a show of pretending that they weren’t enjoying every sip.

Meanwhile, Inui figured out what all the fuss was about with physical bodies as Kaidou slipped his scaly, clawed fingers between Inui’s over their nice lunch.

With his free hand, he recorded the data of the physical sensations he was feeling in his notebook, and smiled.

i really love the maple leaf scene... lucky for them they don't have to travel to canada to do it lmao

***

In Miyagi, the cherry blossoms have bloomed early— Iwaizumi thinks this is the earliest they’ve been in about 20 years. Oikawa had summoned him to the park, insisting they sit and view the flowers, which is a stupid idea because it’s still too cold and they don’t even have any beer because Oikawa isn’t old enough to buy it. He sighs, burrowing his ungloved hands deeper in his pockets.

The wind picks up, sudden and sharp, swirling petals off their branches to catch in Oikawa’s hair. He shakes them out, bright laughter filling the space between them. Iwaizumi takes a careful step back.

It’s been hundreds of years, a dozen different lives. He shouldn’t have the patience to entertain some teenager’s whims. But here he is, as if he’s taken a step back and also out of line with the universe. There is a constant glimmer of warmth in his stomach, and Iwaizumi remembers the last time he felt this way. He’d still been alive, then.

"Do you know," Oikawa says, crouching to pick up a lone blossom that fell from the tree completely intact. "I heard if you catch three petals in a row you’ll get to be with the person you love." He stands up, letting the petals fall from his hand.

"Wasn’t it something to do with an eyelash?" Not that he really remembers.

"You’re showing your age, Iwa-chan, it’s all cherry blossoms nowadays," a cheeky wink, a blown kiss. Iwaizumi exhales.

"Don’t call me Iwa-chan, brat. I’m five hundred years older than you."

"I’m your fated lover, right? And that means," Oikawa grabs at the air, and Iwaizumi can’t tell if he’s actually catching anything at all, "I get to call you whatever I want."

"You are literally six years old," Iwaizumi tells him. "I don’t date pre-pubescent boys."

"But you date boys."

It’s not the first time they’ve had this conversation, or a variant of it. But the cherry blossom petals tumble around him and the sunlight touches Oikawa’s hair just so; the look on his face— the quirk of his eyebrow, the light dancing in his eyes, the smile almost-but-not on his lips like he’s trying to be serious but can’t quite get there. The last time he felt this way, he’d still been alive. And then— and then he’d been betrayed.

Iwaizumi’s breath catches, and his chest floods with ice.

Can you see the sword, he can’t bring himself to ask. It’s making itself known now, as it does when he least wants it, an agonizing weight of steel straight through the gap between his ribs and out his back. The person who put it there had been a boy. A man, a ruler, but in the end just a jealous, scared boy.

But you date boys.

"I don’t date anyone," Iwaizumi says out loud, his hand reaching up to frame the edge of the blade. "Especially not you."

Oikawa is very still for a moment, and then he grins brilliantly.

"Well, the joke’s on you, Iwa-chan."

He opens his hand to show Iwaizumi three perfectly shaped cherry blossom petals.

"You're stuck with me for ever."
