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.

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!

Nagisa stared at Rei who was communicating through the network and doing something else, and honestly realized just how fucking selfish he was. There was a point in where human consciousness and limitations of the natural body kept the true personality of Rei and now that Rei really had no need for sleep and could process what counts as emotions for a human-to-artificial consciousness in the fraction of a millisecond; Nagisa just realized just how much he destroyed Rei.

Rei, his beautiful and endearing grumpy partner, betrayed by the human need for selfishness, by his need to save Rei and thought that by securing Rei and uploading him into the quantum space that he was saving Rei but Rei wasn’t Rei anymore. Rei who thrived off the electrons and neurons of the biochemical transmitters and hormones that existed in the human body, that developed the Rei and his unconscious actions, and the minute details and bodily quirks, and they were all gone.

Everything that made up Rei was gone, and all that was left was the bare facet of Rei, his memories and the personality, but Rei’s desires and everything was gone. Rei was gone and what was left was the shell.

“Hey Rei?” Nagisa asked softly as he stared at the wall, arms thrown over the chair he was leaning over.

“What is it, Nagisa?” Rei asked, before webpages started opening and closing at a rapid rate and code was flashing across the multiple moniters.

“If I ever died, would you do what I would have done?” Nagisa asked before biting his lip.

Rei was silent as everything slowed to a stop across the screens. Before abruptly flashing to the home screen. “What, upload your consciousness to a quantum computer when you’ve already died? No.” He said shortly. Nagisa winced at the sharp reply.

“I’m not going to lie to you Nagisa, this consciousness of me might seem like me, but it’s a poor impression. I had only just finished patenting and presenting artificial intelligence and no one had yet broken through into delving human consciousness into code, this isn’t the Matrix. This isn’t Ghost in the Shell, this isn’t any type of sci-fi you’ve read or watch in the past.”

Nagisa sighed, “But— “

“But nothing, human consciousness isn’t some easy code you can write like some gaming characters after a bit of intensive reading. Human might exist similarily to artificial intelligence through electro-pulses to neurons in the brain and so forth, but that’s where it ends. Artifical intelligence are able to adapt their coding as they learn, and human’s consciousness adapts in a completely different way because we live through flesh and blood and other components.” Rei said before sighing.

“What do you really want?” Rei asked.

Nagisa paled before whispering. “Do you not want to live like this anymore?”

Rei paused. “It’s not whether I want to. The question is whether you’d be able to wipe my existence, Nagisa. And…” Rei half-smiled deprecatingly.

“You’ve always been greedy”
