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 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).

This was so fun and cute to write; I hope you like it! :3 ps I'm sorry for the shitty webcomic name;

***

Tanba likes watching television while drawing or surfing the net. He rarely ever pays attention, simply enjoying the low background noises of people talking about one thing or another. Though, at times, there's something on that catches his interest.

Like the butterfly guy. He's just begun to draw the last panel of the new page of his web comic, when a report starts airing. He sets down his tablet pen and watches as a young guy appears on TV. He's fairly handsome, or rather utterly gorgeous and apparently he knows a lot about butterflies. The reporter asks him about this and that. Tanba listens to the butterfly guy's voice, entranced by the topic as much as by his voice and looks. The guy, the butterfly guy. He shows the reporter his butterfly catching and preservation tools. Tanba thinks he might be in love? This guy and his knowledge are astounding. And cute. The way he talks about butterflies, his passion, while trying to stay composed and failing... Definitely cute.

He livetweets the show, unable to focus on drawing any more anyway. He tweets about the butterfly guy. About his looks, because honestly, that hair and the charming smile...

And he tweets about the extensive knowledge of this butterfly guy on the butterfly topic.

And lastly, because he's anonymous online, and because he's been squealing in real life about him, he tweets about how he wants to "heckin' marry the butterfly guy". One of his mutuals replies with "GAY" and Tanba can't deny it. He's pretty gay anyway and this guy, even though he'll probably never see him on TV again, is all sorts of adorable. He continues tweeting about butterfly guy from time to time that night, between drawing and colouring some, announcing a soon-coming update to his web comic and feeding his dog. Until late at night, even. But Tanba often stays up late, anyway. He thinks about all the kinds of butterflies that exist out there and the guy who knows so much about them until he drifts off...

And he can't get his mind off the guy the next day either. He wants to at least know a bit more about him. The guy with the butterflies that sort of gives Tanba the butterflies.

Simply knowing the butterfly guy's name would be nice. At least that much, so Tanba won't have to continue calling him the butterfly guy from PBS.

So, bothered by this, he pulls open the PBS website and searches around until he finds yesterday's report on butterflies and butterfly expert 'Takigawa Chris Yuu'. Takigawa Chris Yuu... so he's a foreigner? The butterfly guy. Even if his last name is Japanese...

Hard to say whether to call him Chris, Chris Yuu or Takigawa in this case. Or maybe just Yuu? Tanba ponders about that. Well... Chris sounds nice, and it's not like anyone will know, let alone Chris himself. They're strangers, Chris doesn't even know Tanba exists out there. And honestly, Tanba is glad things are this way. He has said some embarrassing things during his livetweet on the butterfly report, after all.

He keeps scrolling through the page out of boredom, there's some more information on Takigawa Chris Yuu. His nationality, American-Japanese huh... his age -- he's the same age as Tanba himself... his other interests, his twitter and tumblr and...

His twitter? Chris' twitter? Tanba can't, at all, help himself. He immediately looks for @papiliocrino on Twitter. It's cute, this twitter handle. Probably a latin name of some butterfly, Tanba guesses. He finds Chris' Twitter easily, even if writing the @ out is quite hard.

The profile picture is one of a striking green butterfly. It looks too amazing to be real, so huge and beautiful... Chris' twitter description also speaks about Papilio crino, which is apparently the butterfly in the picture, as well as Chris' favourite one. Tanba can't help smiling learning this tiny detail about Chris. After admiring the profile picture once more, though, Tanba realizes that Chris is... following him.

Chris is following Tanba.

Appalled, Tanba scrolls down, checks if Chris has been online recently. And... he has. In fact his last few tweets are about half an hour old. Tanba sure hopes his livetweeting went by unnoticed. He has to make sure of that, though, so he scrolls down until he arrives at tweets that were posted roughly ten hours ago.

‪Keep up the good work! And thank you for the nice comments. 😊‬

‪Apparently he was really amazed by the show and all. I am SO flattered???‬

piece of fly butter @papiliocrino・10h‬
‪Oh my,,,‬

‪He wants to marry me ☺️😅 oh no, oh no,‬

‪The author of Shades Illuminate saw the documentation on me!!!‬

‪Tanba spins his chair 180 degrees away from the screen of his laptop and hides his face in his hands. No, no, no. This is so embarrassing. This can't be happening. So much about anonymity on Twitter. His face heats up a little bit, and he can't help getting up and taking a small tour through his flat. ‬

‪What's he gonna do now? Follow back? Ignore this ever happened? Apologize for being kind of creepy with his comments? Oh boy... Oh boy... Tanba gets himself a cup of iced coffee to calm down. Oddly enough, it always works. After sipping a bit of coffee, he sits back down. He's just gonna follow back, apologize and maybe tell Chris how he thinks he's amazing for his knowledge and interest in butterflies.‬

The Real MVP @illshade・just now‬
‪@papiliocrino Hey, sorry, for saying way too much. I should have appreciated you silently. You were so amazing, tho.. sorry for being creepy‬

‪He sits back after tweeting to Chris and takes another gulp of chill, sweet coffee. Phew, with that done... he should probably work on the last few parts that need to be fixed for his new update. There's a bunch of small errors, plus the text isn't in yet, but everything else seems fine. Before he can get to these, Chris replies, though.‬

piece of fly butter @papiliocrino・just now‬
‪@illshade not at all! it was quite cute and really flattering to read. I'm glad you enjoyed the reportage on me!‬

piece of fly butter @papiliocrino・just now‬
‪@illshade -- and thanks for following me. I'm here for any question you may have and will answer them to the best of my ability!‬

‪Tanba smiles, sort of giddy. Thank god Chris doesn't seem creeped out and really just genuinely flattered. With that, Tanba goes straight to fixing the errors and adding the text so he can update his web comic. He updates it later that day, gets all the reviews and Chris talks to him again, everything's much better than he thought it'd be. In fact, he thinks it was quite silly of him to feel so embarrassed for livetweeting about the butterfly guy, Takigawa Chris Yuu. ‬

‪--‬

‪Just a couple of months, several short and some longer conversations later, Chris messages Tanba out of nowhere. Tanba, long put his initial attraction in the back of his mind and just befriending Chris instead, gets flustered again. ‬

‪This is quite sudden. But then again, can he complain?‬
