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.

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!

***

The man stormed into the shop, jerking the door open roughly so that the bell clanged and then doing his best to slam it. The door, however, was a slow heavy thing, designed not to close quickly, and his attempts to slam the door were merely comic.

From behind the counter, Kise watched with a suppressed smile. Husband caught cheating? That was the most common reason that angry men stormed into a flower shop. Though in that case, they usually looked a little panicked as well and this guy seemed to have full control of his emotions…

The man stalked up to the counter, slammed his credit card down onto the counter as if he wanted to break it and glowered at Kise.

“I need a bouquet,” he said.

“Most people who come in here do,” Kise agreed with his best customer-service smile. “Is there any specific sort of bouquet you want?”

“Fuck you.” The man enunciated the words carefully.

Kise bit back the urge to laugh but he couldn’t suppress the urge to troll the man just a little.

“I’m flattered, sir, but it takes more than a bouquet to--”

“I didn’t mean that!” The man interrupted, now outright glaring. “I want a bouquet that if someone gets it, they’ll know I’m pissed. Your ugliest, stinkiest flowers. Do you have any that are poisonous to touch? Or poison ivy and stinging nettles? That kind of thing. I want a ‘fuck you, I hate you, you bastard’ bouquet.”

“...We don’t sell ugly or stinky flowers here,” Kise said after a second of wondering whether his least favorite flowers (roses, they were the blood diamonds of the flower world) would be considered appropriate if he explained their backstory. Probably not. “And I can’t let you root around in our Dumpster. And we definitely do not have any poison ivy or stinging nettles!”

“Then just - use that flower language thing. About red roses meaning love, white roses meaning innocence, that stuff. Make a bouquet that says I hate you,” the man said firmly.

Kise briefly considered pointing out that nobody, upon receiving a bouquet, was going to google the meanings of the flowers. He didn’t mind making love bouquets and good luck bouquets because he knew the deliverer would explain the bouquets as they gave them over. This, though…

He might as well just get rid of the flowers that weren’t selling by cramming them into a bouquet. The boquet would probably end up in the trash within seconds if the hatred was mutual anyway.

Still, there was such a thing as professional pride.

“Just a minute, sir,” Kise said with a sweet smile. He bustled about and within minutes, he had finished and rung up a bouquet that he passed over to the customer. “Here you go!”

“And you’re sure it says fuck you?” The man asked, clutching it to his chest.

“Oh yes. Geraniums for stupidity, foxglove for insincerity, meadowsweet for uselessness and all of it ringed with orange lilies for hatred,” Kise reassured the man and then against his better judgment asked, “...May I ask what the recipient did?”

“He kicked me off our basketball team,” the customer said bitterly before stomping out through the door again. On his way out, he kicked a perfectly innocent bucket of fuchsia hyacinths, making Kise wish he’d triple-charged instead of just double-charging.

yes... just yes... you told so much in only 400 words, it's awesome! Haizaki directly jumped on the poisonous flowers path and that's hilarous. Kise's comebacks are fantastic, "making Kise wish he’d triple-charged instead of just double-charging." omg.
Thanks!!
