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.

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!

I am SO PLEASED you prompted this.

***

“Can you hear me?!”

“Where are you?!”

“Say something if you can hear me!”

A little dazed by the explosion, Tetsuya nonetheless joined the hunt. The building had partially collapsed and the Generation of Miracles were now using their strength to haul the chunks of concrete and brick away. All the while, they kept calling out.

Kuroko quickly found he wasn’t strong enough to help dismantle the rubble so he stood back and counted. Akashi, Kise, Aoime, Murasakibara, Midorima - that was all of them. Huh.

“Who are we looking for?” He asked when there was a temporary lull in the shouting. Everyone jumped (which Kuroko was used to) and then turned to stare at him with disbelief, shock and fear (that Kuruoko was not used to).

“Kuroko?!” Kise said, then suddenly burst into sobs.

“He’s a ghost…” Murasakibara murmured, stepping backwards hastily. Akashi was invisible behind Murasakibara’s bulk but Midorima was frantically checking his phone for lucky items against ghosts.

“I knew it was a bad day for Aquarius but I didn’t know it would be this bad!” Midorima said, looking paler by the minute.

It took Kuroko, who was still a little hazy, a few seconds to understand what was going on.

“I’m not a ghost!” He said indignantly.

“...He hasn’t realized he’s dead,” Murasakibura speculated.

“We have to help him pass on?” Kise asked between tears.

“No! You don’t! I’m not dead!” Kuroko said. He took a step towards them, intending to prove how solid he was, but everyone hastily retreated. “Take my pulse! Touch me!”

"Tetsu, are you *sure* you're not a ghost?" Aomine asked warily. He bounced a small rock in his left hand, watching Tetsuya suspiciously.

“Yes, Aomine. I would know if I were a ghost!”

Aomine nodded, then threw the rock at Kuroko. “Catch.”

Taken off-guard and his reflexes slowed by his semi-stunned state, Kuroko managed to put his hand up in time but the rock slipped through his fingers. In the gathering gloom of the night, it looked as if the rock had gone right through his hand and a fresh wave of horrified cries rose up from the group.

“He’s a ghost!”

“I knew it!”

“But why is he still here?!”

“Beyone, foul demon! Avaunt!”

Everyone stopped to stare at Midorima for that.

“He’s not a demon, he’s a ghost,” Kise said, wiping the tears from his eyes.

“And don’t tell him to avaunt,” Aomine added, looming as best as he could. “If he wants to stay here and haunt the site where he died, he can.”

“I’m not going to haunt anything because I’m not dead!” Kuroko said a little desperately. “Look, just touch me! I’ll PROVE IT!”

The raised volume and having Kuroko heading towards them was what broke the spirit of the famed Generation of Miracles. As one, they turned and bolted.

“RUN!”

“HE’S BECOMING A POLTERGEIST!”

“OUT OF MY WAY!”

Kuroko stopped dead and glared at their vanishing backs. Fine! He’d call Momoi for help. She was the only sane one in the group anyway.

MIDORIMA IS THE ONLY SANE MAN IN HIS OWN MIND. Seriously. He's just thinking 'why are they all standing around talking and crying, that is a ghost, we should get away from it'.

And then of course everyone gets pissed at him on Kuroko's behalf. GHOST OR NOT, THAT IS AOMINE'S TETSU. And Kise's Kurokocchi! He'll leave when he wants to leave and you stop being so mean to him!

And then they run. Because angry ghost.

I like to imagine Midorima throws salt at Kuroko next time they meet.

And then Aomine would offer to take Kuroko shoe-shopping (and not subtly making sure Kuroko has feet.)

...PFFFT. omg Midorima nobody would believe that. BUT HE WOULD TOTALLY TRY.

Also wear anti-ghost charms. And make Takao paper the rickshaw with them for a speedy escape.

I knooooooow. IN THEIR DEFENSE, they're probably also all dazed from the explosion and a little in shock!

Please imagine Hyuga and Kiyoshi trying to pray over him, though. Or Furihata shrieking and running a mile.

And Mitobe just quietly trying to leave offerings of food to placate the angry spirit.
