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!

"One small coffee," Miss Glasses says.

She doesn't glance up from her book. The thing that Miki has most noticed about her, beyond the fact that she has begun a new wave of shorthand for orders on cups, or a dozen people refusing to give their name upon the realization of her glorious privilege, or how her hair shines purple in the right light -

"Are you always reading that book?"

There's a jolt hidden in her customer's shoulders, darting eyes behind the glare of glass, but she stays composed.

"I'm quite busy," she says. "So I have to take my time with novels."

Everyone who worked in the shop knew how to talk themselves empty, about everything and nothing, but this girl gave a measure of the same responses each time. She apparently couldn't know what genre the book actually was till she finished it, and no, she could not tell you the author because she expected you would have the eyes to read the cover yourself, and there were other copies at the library if you were so interested.

Usually, she would walk away after paying, and sit alone till Miki walked over with her cup, and a cough.

Today, the shop is empty. Today, Miki is the only one foolish enough to stay this late, after ushering her coworker home, standing vigil till the morning shifters came round. So there is no one to stamp their feet, but Miss Glasses, as Miki rolls her head along her shoulders, finger to her cheek.

"How often do you reread the same page?" Miki asks.

There is no one but Miki present to see Miyahara's face burn bright red.

"Trees hung over the street, a hundred to a man, overshadowing any space of life on the street," Miki recites, and then shrugs. "Sounds like you're reading a thriller, but I never get a chance to see the rest."

"Why are you like this in public," Miyahara hisses. With her face hidden, she's like a hamster, or a nervous mouse.

"You know I'd never embarrass you around strangers!" she says, practically glowing in return.

Miki writes down a different name every day, and Miyahara answers to them like fond nicknames. Not every barista has the power to know a name - fewer can make a new one for someone without.

"Still," Miyahara mutters.

"Maybe if you didn't insist on visiting me at work."

"It's on campus," she answers. "And I'm going to throw away at least half of that large if you give it to me."

"I'm sure," Miki says. "You're very good at staying awake at 3 AM. How far out of your way, again?"

"And most places here have coffee with all the viscosity of mud at this time of night. Are you putting caramel into my drink?"

"Me? Give you things you didn't explicitly order? How faithless, Mii-chan."

When Miyahara's eyes dart, Miki laughs.

She says, "The camera doesn't cover this end of the counter."

"Quiet."

When Miyahara leans over for a kiss, Miki lets her pull away before she says, "But that doesn't count as a tip."
