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!

When I saw the prompt, I was already halfway through writing it in my head before I could load up the writing app asdfgh

***

"You should've turned already."

Otabek stood a good distance from Yuri, his rifle now lowered but still ready to raise and shoot at any moment. He looked so small, chained against the wall with his head hanging. If Otabek didn't know what would happen to him --what was supposed to have happened-- he would feel like a monster keeping him like that. He still did.

The voice that answered was small, cracked. "I know."

"You know-!" Otabek stopped himself before before he raised his voice any higher and blew out a hard breath. "Why haven't you turned?"

"I don't know."

Otabek sighed and slid down the wall to sit, his rifle still at the ready. Always. They were silent for a while, Otabek staring at Yuri, and Yuri staring at the floor.

"It's not the first time."

Otabek nearly missed soft mutter, and he'd barely opened his mouth to respond when Yuri started moving. It took a fair bit of maneuvering, the chains clanking all the while, before he had his shirt pulled down to reveal his shoulder. The skin was unmistakably marred by a bite wound that long since scarred over. Then, he was moving again, using one leg to push the other's pant leg up until another bite mark on his calf was visible.

"What..."

"It's not the first time I've been bitten. I don't know why I haven't turned."

"S-so-" Otabek struggled to swallow. "So, you're immune?"

Yuri's shoulders rose and fell.

"Then... then there might be a way to stop this. The Epidemic. If we... if we got you to the CDC, if we-"

Yuri flinched hard, and Otabek stopped talking.

"What!? So the assholes can wring me dry in search of a cure that might not even exist!? So they can bleed me out and cut me up and send me all over the fucking world in tiny pieces for the rest of those remaining fucks to study? Fuck that! Fuck you!"

He was breathing heavily and taunt against the chains, though he still faced the floor. In another breath, he fell back against the wall, as if the fight had gone out of him, and let out a humorless laugh.

"The whole fucking world's gone to shit. People are shooting up their neighbors, stabbing their friends, and beheading their family members just to keep themselves alive. They're all so fucking selfish in the name of self preservation, and I-" his voice cracked. "Why can't I be?"

For the first time in the week since Otabek chained him down here, Yuri looked up at him, his eyes shining and desperate.

"What if I want to live too?"
