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.

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!

“Look,” Kerosuke says, from his vantage point on top of the drawers, “I don’t think this is a good idea. In fact, it’s probably a very, very bad—”

“Oh, shut it,” Tanuki-san hisses, pushing him aside. The other toys are crowded beneath the table, jostling for a better position. “Let me take a look. They can’t be coming back this quickly—you want to save Lucky Pencil #54, don’t you, Kerosuke?”

In a corner of the room several toys, including a teruteru-bozu and a stuffed rabbit, are comforting Lucky Pencil #53, who is sobbing despondently. Shintarou never gives out his lucky pencils, they’d all thought until now. All the other toys had seen them come and go, heads held high like brave soldiers going into the battlefield and giving their lives to their master. Shintarou always took care of his toys, polished the porcelain dolls and dusted the figurines, sharpened his pencils diligently and never broke their nibs.

But yesterday Shintarou had taken Lucky Pencil #54 out of his casing, before Lucky Pencil #53 was even halfway used up, and packed him up for school. That could only mean one thing, the toys all knew; they’d seen it happen before, but never to a pencil.

“We don’t even know what kind of person other than Shintarou would need a Lucky Pencil,” Tanuki-san says darkly as he looks out towards the cloudy skies. “Lucky Pencil #54 could be being tortured right now, you know? Do you remember how Slinky was taken from us?”

Slinky had been one of Shintarou’s favorites before he had been abruptly sent to the Dreaded Morning Death Row, the show Shintarou listens to religiously every day, without fail. Slinkies were the lucky items of the day for one of their master’s many acquaintances, called Scorpio or Sagittarius or something, and so their dear friend had been wrenched from his home, shrieking wordlessly.

The toys had not seen Slinky since. (A motion to construct a memorial was halted from lack of funding for the rest of their fallen.)

Kerosuke swallows. Shintarou and his family had gone on a weekend outing to a place called Atami, and would not be expected back until late in the day. Kerosuke knows Tokyo is big, and that the other toys are counting on him, Shintarou’s favorite, to do his duty. Still, the thought of leaving the house alone is terrifying—he had never done it before, not without his master. “I…I…”

Tanuki-san looks at him in disgust. “You just want to save your own ass, don’t you?”

“No! No, I…how could you say that?” Kerosuke cries, hopping onto the windowsill. He could not let his position be compromised—not by Tanuki-san, or anyone else. The frog turns towards the other toys bravely, puffing up his chest. “Follow me, everyone. We’ll get Lucky Pencil #54 back, I promise you!”

In the distance, a low rumble of thunder; Kerosuke could only wonder in despair at what he’s gotten them all into as he tumbles into the wet, dewy grass below, the other toys clambering towards him, as the first drops of rain start to fall.
