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.

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).

***

kazuya wakes up all at once, room swimming around him in chiaroscuro patches. the light hanging from the ceiling is swinging or the room is swinging or kazuya is swinging, it's hard to tell and he's not wearing his glasses — his glasses! — but there's a firm hand on his bare chest before he can leap up from whatever he's lying on. the face that hovers into view isn't familiar but kazuya places it after a moment. the cursebreaker, yoh shunshin. he seems unfazed, meeting kazuya's eyes without the protective shield of spelled glass between them.

"sorry," shunshin says after a moment, the gentleness of the hand pressing kazuya back down onto the sofa at odds with the brusqueness of his tone. "i had to take a look at what i'm up against."

"well, you know," kazuya says, reaching for the easiest way to disguise the rasp of pain in his voice out of habit as much as anything else, "if you wanted me to undress —"

"spare me," shunshin says, and the hand is gone and his face is gone and kazuya is left to stare at the ceiling as the world slowly rights itself, gravity settling on his limbs like an old coat. his head stops spinning in stages, a top surrendering to torque. his glasses are on a nearby end table when he manages to sit up, and he puts them back on even though shunshin seemed unaffected by kazuya's naked gaze. kazuya hopes it means he's come to the right place. his shirt is draped across the arm of the sofa and kazuya pulls that back on too, conscious of the constant ripple of magic across his skin, the writhing mess of curse marks radiating from his sternum clear to anyone who knows how to look.

shunshin is across the room, bent over a scroll inserted into some sort of mechanical reader, gears ticking merrily as he skims from passage to passage. kazuya studies him for a long moment, the strong line of his shoulders beneath an utterly mundane button-down, the attentive tilt of his head when he finds something he's looking for, the thoughtful purse of his lips. shunshin's the very picture of carefully cultivated competence down to his meticulously filed nails, and most importantly: he isn't dead from counter-acting the curse trigger.

"there is the matter of payment," shunshin says without looking up, and kazuya straightens his shoulders to hide his start, posture going liquid with manufactured insouciance as he strides across the room. "no," shunshin says, just as kazuya puts his hands down on the desk, before he says a word, "not that."

kazuya laughs at that, both delighted and startled, leans down to match the curve of shunshin's back and meet his cool grey eyes. "most people jump at the chance for that kind of power," he says.

shunshin shakes his head. "no," he says, voice resonant with truth. "the price for this kind of magic is always something you don't want to give."

I adore this, to the surprise of no one, because I adore everything you write. I love the way you use language and the sorts of imagery you construct; the room swimming in chiaroscuro patches, gravity like an old coat, and the top surrendering to torque in particular were lines and images I really enjoyed.

And you know I love forward, blustery Miyuki so of course I love him playing things off with a joke about stripping, and I adore him trying to put the moves on Shunshin. Who is wonderful! I love that he uses a mechanical reader, that even in this context you evoked his identity as the clockwork pitcher and painted such a succinct picture of his precision and professionalism.

And of course I love the ending thought, that the price for this magic has to be something Miyuki doesn't want to give, it's perfect.

Thank you for writing this for me!
