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!
prillalar: Otabek with teddy bear (SASO)

part 2 of 2

JJ walked to the dep instead of skating. He didn't deserve to use his powers right now. Outsmarted by the Hummingbird or betrayed by his own heart? Probably both. But at least he could make it up to Yuri by getting the milk.

He reached for the handle of the dairy case. Then froze.

There, pulling out a three-pack of milk bags, was the Hummingbird. And under his arm was a box of Froot Loops.

JJ swallowed twice before he could speak. "It's you," he whispered.

"Oh, fuck," Yuri said.

+

"This is great!" JJ said, wrestling the huge pack of cereal boxes through the apartement door. "We can just stay at home, eat cereal on the couch, make out during Netflix time. Not terrorize the city any more." He dumped the cereal down and reached inside his jacket pocket. "I even got you more Prosecco Bears gummies!"

Yuri rolled his eyes, but he did join JJ on the couch. And he did make out with JJ during the Walking Dead. And it was good, really nice and sweet, except for the sounds of zombies eating people in the background.

JJ couldn't wait to do it again the next night.

+

A week later, a week of productive work days and snuggly zombie kissing nights, they were on the couch again. JJ watched through his fingers until three people had been killed by zombies. Then he turned to Yuri to start the make-out session.

"I have to go to the bathroom," Yuri said. He jumped up and left the room.

JJ ate a gummy bear while he waited. It was almost as sweet as Yuri's mouth. Then his mobile buzzed: di-dah-dah-dah. He ran to the window. Sure enough, the Crown of Light was up. There's a new super villain, the message read. He's dressed like a bee and he's robbing an artisinal honey store.

Shoot! There was the whole evening ruined. JJ left a note for Yuri on the coffee table and ran down to the alley. On the way, his mobile buzzed again, dah-di-dah-dah this time, from Yuri.

All it said was: Remember the milk!
