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.

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).

“Absolutely not,” Shintarou says, crossing his arms. His lucky item for today appears to be a baseball bat—plastic, Seijuurou can tell. It would not do if he were to start threatening violence. “That is preposterous, how could you even—“

“Shintarou.”

“I’m—“ he splutters, releasing his hands. “I’m not saying you’d be a bad…partner, Akashi. Does the status of your relationship matter so much to these people that it’s come down to this?”

“Unfortunately so.”

The problem is, Seijuurou had explained at length, that he’s about to attend a gala in a few weeks’ time, and with those types of events always came these sorts of invitations. Seijuurou had not been planning on taking a date. But one man had pestered him so much over the course of the weekend that he simply could not think of another way to get rid of the unwanted attention (other than murder.)

“You want me to…pretend…to be your…date.”

“Not pretend to be my date,” Seijuurou corrects. “You will be my date. You—and I—will pretend to have been in a relationship for some time now. I’ve given vague enough responses to the…source of the problem, that this should be an acceptable cover.”

Shintarou twitches. The baseball bat is still leaning against the wall, but there is no indication he’s about to pick it up and swing at Seijuurou’s head. A sign as good as any. Finally Shintarou exhales, his face slightly pink, and Seijuurou knows he’s won. “I don’t suppose you’re going to compensate me for this.”

“Whatever do you take me for, Shintarou?” Seijuurou smiles, taking his hand, the one with the bandages. Shintarou doesn’t pull away. “I’ll be sending you your suit tonight.”

-

Now, he could’ve asked someone else to do it. Kise, perhaps, would’ve been an ideal candidate—slightly airheaded, but handsome and charming and semi-famous enough to keep questions away. It would lead to some gossip, he supposes, but he could deal with that. Models are always getting into some kind of gossip or another anyway, and as long as Kise doesn’t blurt out anything incriminating (the major problem, in Seijuurou’s eyes), he would be fine.

But Kise had gone away on a two-week shoot in the Maldives before Seijuurou could ask, and well.

Shintarou is smart, and despite the obvious social awkwardness he is from a good family, and would probably not feel out of place in a formal situation. And, well, Shintarou is also not bad to look at.

He’s very nice to look at, Seijuurou decides as his chauffeur pulls up to Shintarou’s driveway. Even in the dimming sunlight he could see just how good he looks in the clothes Seijuurou had sent. Shintarou stands outside the limo, looking around hesitantly, then ducks inside.

“Do I want to ask how you got my measurements,” is the first thing he says after settling in. Seijuurou can see he’s carrying a teddy bear—the lucky item of the day, he supposes. Better than a baseball bat (though if things got to that point, there is no telling what will happen.)

“Satsuki is as good as ever as wrangling information from her sources,” Seijuurou says, allowing him this one piece of information. Shintarou, for his part, looks slightly horrified.

“It’s been six years since we’ve graduated.”

“And yet here you are,” Seijuurou says wryly, patting down a wrinkle on Shintarou’s pants; he instantly feels the other tense up. Shintarou’s looking out the window, and the darkness outside makes it difficult to see his face. “Relax. We are supposed to be—displaying some sort of affection.”

“Do we,” Shintarou says quietly, still not looking at him, “Also have to pretend to—to kiss.”

Seijuurou raises an eyebrow. He would not be averse to that—no, after seeing Shintarou, he’s positive that things are developing at an even faster pace than he’d anticipated. This simply would not do. He says, evenly, “Holding hands is fine.”

“Are you certain?”

Do you want to make certain? Seijuurou finds himself wanting to ask, but he doesn’t. Instead, he makes sure the leather partition between the driver and them is shut before replying, “Yes, I am certain. I do not suppose we will have to engage very long with the source of trouble as soon as he—”

Shintarou makes a disgruntled noise. “Why do you have to say it like that.”

“…Are you suggesting I mean something else?”

“No!” And then, as if completely giving up on that thought, there’s a pull on Seijuurou’s own immaculately tailored sleeve. “I mean, yes—yes, you do…mean something else. Am I wrong?”

He’s looking at Seijuurou now, and well—they’ve known each other long enough and well enough that Seijuurou figures there is no adequate way to hide it. Not that he wants to, now that what he is thinking is also confirmed in Shintarou’s eyes.

“You shouldn’t doubt yourself so much, Shintarou,” Seijuurou says, his hand already on the other’s lap. “But perhaps we should…practice, before we need to perform before an audience.”

“I…” Shintarou replies haltingly, his hands already reaching for his glasses in his usual display of embarrassment, but Seijuurou intercepts his wrist gently. “I would not be opposed to…practice.”

Seijuurou smiles as he leans in. “I’m glad we’re on the same page.”

Oh wow, that is SO MUCH cuter than I expected. XD Totally fine you went for Midorima! I loved the bit about the plastic baseball bat and Akashi being a little wary of it.

Also Midorima taking a teddy bear to a formal gala, pfff. Only he would do that!

Thanks for the sweet fill :)
