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!

"it's fine, really," chris says, even though he's kind of not, the criss-cross acid burn from poisonous vines lacing his arms and chest, the place on his shoulder where they'd wound themselves tight enough to crush bone. he'll be recovering for the better part of a year, at the very least. his sword arm may never be the same again, but all told chris thinks it was worth it.

koichirou's thin lips are pressed even thinner, an expression chris has learned means that he's probably berating himself internally. "i'm sorry you had to step in," he says, a sentence chris knows has probably gone through a minimum of three iterations before koichirou let it out of his mouth. in the far corner of the room, chris can see koichirou's bow propped up against the wall, quivering like someone's just plucked its string. it's a finicky creature, difficult to wield and terribly sensitive to its master's moods.

"i wanted to," chris says, tone as gentle as he can make it when he's also trying not to laugh, reaching over to cover koichirou's hand on the duvet to help soften the affronted line of his shoulders. he's not laughing at koichirou. not too much, at least.

koichirou frowns but doesn't pull his hand away, the long, angular lines of his face relaxing for the first time since the enchanted tower appeared on the horizon three days ago. chris has always thought that koichirou's main issue is getting in his own way; the ability to use such a weapon is rare to begin with and it's rarer still to be chosen by one. koichirou's sense of his own worthiness matters a whole more more to koichirou than it does to the bow. the wrinkle between his eyebrows is nearly permanent, somehow endearing in its persistence. chris can never quite decide if he wants to kiss it or smooth it out with his thumb.

"i'll make it up to you" koichirou says, fervent, "even if it takes the rest of my life." he looks noble and determined, with the stalwart set of his jaw and the early afternoon light slanting across his face from the high windows. the effect is only slightly ruined by the red creases on his cheek, evidence of his sleeping at chris's bedside rather than partaking in whatever celebrations the kingdom's been holding in honor of their newly freed princess. it's adorable.

chris looks at him for a long moment, smile hovering at the corner of his lips, not quite fully formed. "very well," he says dropping each word deliberately into the quiet of the room, "i accept. when should we having the wedding?"

"what," koichirou says, eyes going wide, and it's only chris's grip on his hand that keeps him tethered at the bedside rather than fluttering around the tower room like a startled bird. in the corner, koichirou's bow falls over with a clatter.

"i believe that was a marriage proposal," chris says, in his most infuriatingly reasonable tone, the one he used to practice on his horse before going to his father with something he was sure would be disapproved of, "and i accept."

"i — i didn't mean," koichirou is saying, flushed an incredible shade of red, dropping his face down onto the bed with a groan when chris gives him a look of absolutely placid contentment.

"well, you don't not want to marry me, right?" chris says.

there's a pause. "i didn't say i don't," koichirou says, still face down, voice muffled by duvet.

"then it's settled," chris says, laugh finally spilling out into his voice, letting go of koichirou's hand in favor of running his palm over the back of koichirou's head, the soft scratch of hair against his palm soothing to both of them. eventually koichirou turns his face to look at chris, color still blooming on his cheeks but otherwise much more composed.

"that was a dirty trick," he says, trying for reproachful and mostly making it, the edge of elation on his tone prompting chris to cup his upturned cheek.

"i figured it was about time for you to make an honest man out of me," chris says, and laughs over koichirou's indignant squawk.
