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.

i played a little fast and loose with old kingdom canon and timeline, and uh.. i think i went somewhere a little different than the prompt suggests, but hopefully it is still in the spirit of things!

this was either going to be a 10k thing i would never write, or it was going to be this, so i'm glad it is this.

***

The lights in the inn flickered, briefly dipping the room into darkness. The innkeeper looked out the window at the sway of the bare tree branches, then turned back to wiping down the bar.

"Windy out, isn't it?" Kuramochi asked. He was seated at the bar, eating a meal he'd bought with what he had left of his Ancelstierran money. He had been trying to strike up a conversation with the innkeeper since he'd come into the inn.

The innkeeper grunted. Kuramochi figured that was that, took his last bite, and stood up to get back to his lodgings.

"North wind," the innkeeper said. "You're heading north, aren't you?"

"Yeah," Kuramochi said, a little pleased to have finally gotten a response. The winds really were getting stronger.

The innkeeper gave him an indecipherable look. "You be careful up there."

--

Kuramochi rode his horse hard, reveling in the speed and the cold air, until he got to the Perimeter. He stopped short at the warning sign, gave a careless laugh at the blustering words, and headed towards Perimeter Command HQ.

At HQ he was bounced from guard to guard until Colonel Yuuki finally came to see him. The colonel looked at his documents for a long time.

"Your passport is in order," Colonel Yuuki said, turning the yellowed pages over in his hands. "As is your visa, somehow."

Kuramochi grinned. "So all that's left to do is on your end, isn't it?"

Colonel Yuuki held a carefully bland look. "I'm sure you understand, I would prefer the Abhorsen here to confirm your documents."

"What?" Kuramochi asked, surprised. "Bureaucracy? I guess that makes sense, but Colonel Yuuki, I just know, right?" He could feel his heart beat in excitement. "I know the Abhorsen's waiting on the other side of the Wall. He's expecting me."

The colonel frowned.

Kuramochi heard the wind howl. His smile got wider. "The Abhorsen doesn't like to be kept waiting. He won't like coming here to pick me up. What do you say you write up those documents for me, real quick?"

--

Kuramochi left his horse with the Perimeter guard. He wouldn't be needing it where he was going.

His first step past the Wall, into the Old Kingdom, brought him to his knees. The power that surged through him was too much of a good thing.

He walked a mile, then a mile more, then who knew, until he came to a Charter Stone. He was not tired. In fact, he felt invigorated. He saw a familiar white cat and winked.

"Nice form," he said.

"Can't say the same for you," said Yrael. "He's down by the river, getting me fish if he knows what's good for him."

"No," the Abhorsen said, stepping into view. "I'm here now." He threw a fish to the ground. "Here, Mogget."

Yrael yowled and set to eating.

"The Clayr said you'd be here," Ryousuke said. Despite the cold, the sun was shining bright. It gave his strange hair an ethereal glow. "Well, you know the Clayr. They saw a future in which you might be here."

Kuramochi couldn't help it. He fell to his knees again. Ryousuke tilted his head, as though admiring a curiosity.

"I trust the visit was nice?" he asked, stepping forward to place a hand on Kuramochi's head.

Kuramochi bowed his head, letting Ryousuke card through his hair. "Yes. It was good for me." He looked back up, unable to keep from looking at his Abhorsen for too long.

"Good." Ryousuke dropped his hand, cupping Kuramochi's face. He gave a smile, that sweet mean thing that barely hinted at his power. "Welcome back home, Binder."

Re: FILL: TEAM HIKARU NO GO, G

[personal profile] princesssid 2017-06-02 05:20 am (UTC)(link)
[CLUTCHES MY CHEST] YA he's saraneth, i'm so glad you figured it out ahahfjfdsa i was a little nervous about that (for many reasons, but primarily because i've never written this pairing before so it felt like a very bold choice... too bold??)

ALSO after reading your prompt and trying to think of ideas, one of my first thoughts was also that ryousuke and mogget would get along super well. they'd have an understanding... of some kind...

AS FOR THE SET UP: i was thinking this is set before sabriel, early enough that ryousuke is the abhorsen before sabriel's father was, when things were very chaotic. i said i played a little loose with timelines because i have the electric lights flickering from the magic on the wind, but like, if ryousuke's before sabriel, i don't think ancelstierre would have electricity yet. and then i figured i was overthinking it.

and i was thinking about kibeth having a dog form, and how clearly kibeth wandering around as a dog wasn't affecting sabriel's bells?? so it would be fine for kuramochi to go take a trip. it probably exhausted him though (i think, if i were to really follow canon he wouldn't have been able to do it at all). i couldn't really think of a reason for the trip but i had a vague idea about him going there because the clayr saw something that had to be set in motion.

um.. as for the relationship, i really liked the idea of binder having someone he always wants to obey......[looks away]. if lirael is kibeth's abhorsen (because that's cute) then i wanted ryousuke to be kuramochi's abhorsen

SORRY FOR THE ESSAY, I JUST. REALLY LOVE THIS SERIES AND ALSO THIS PAIRING AND THIS PROMPT, THANK YOU FOR PROMPTING ;;

[personal profile] kuramochi 2017-06-02 06:12 pm (UTC)(link)
NO IT'S FINE, THANK U FOR FILLING, I ALSO LOVE THIS SERIES AND THIS SHIP SO SO MUCH

i think that places this somewhere between the prequel (clariel) and sabriel which is also fascinating tbh??? and idk about crossing the wall, both mogget and the dog did in abhorsen.... granted they didn't go far but!!! who knows tbh, it's still a really interesting idea. i do love the idea of ryousuke being saraneth's abhorsen tbh falklkelskeje

and to backtrack a bit YEAH TBH i was thinking like doctor crake crosses the wall flavor for ancelstierran kuramochi originally but i'm so intrigued by this idea... like the dog is what's left of kibeth, there was that part where they run into what's left of astarael, there are so many possibilities...

honestly tho, imagine someone having to face down ryousuke and mogget's snark at the same time.

omg ok first of all HOW HAVE I NEVER READ DOCTOR CRAKE CROSSES THE WALL?? OR SEEN THIS WEBSITE AT ALL? thank you for the link!! though i see now what was meant by "southern ancelstierre" and i want... to see that version of a fill too... someone else please.....do another fill

but yes, it's after clariel! i'm really really curious about the old kingdom in the era after the fall of royalty and before sabriel brought touchstone back. it must have been so dangerous, and i imagine the abhorsen was running around fixing up one problem while ten more popped up.

ryousuke and mogget, the saso team-up i did not expect, but love very much

[personal profile] kuramochi 2017-06-03 04:38 pm (UTC)(link)
i only read it recently tbh and i haven't been able to stop thinking about this idea since then... idk how likely another fill is since i'm not sure what the overlap of people who like this book series and like krry is, but stares into the saso void pls come forth. this is one of those "i'd like to try it myself eventually" ideas but getting things done is HARD, weh.

and YEAH i think the contrast of how belisaere is described in clariel vs in sabriel is really fascinating... the difference in the abhorsen like village too. those years after kerrigor's betrayal must have been an absolute mess tbh.

i love the idea of tiny ryousuke meeting mogget....
