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!

People have stopped dancing with Shizuku at parties.

Not because she steps on feet, or pushes anyone around. There is simply no one so talented at these affairs, as their dear Shizuku. Nigh untouchable, she stands like an evening star at the head of the stairs, and it would be an insult for people to dare. Everyone has had her grace at least once, and that was enough. She was to be saved for only the best.

But people's eyes still flicker in a hint of fear when her fingers came too close to theirs, and Shizuku keeps it in mind to wear gloves.

It is no different tonight. The station overlooks stars, and Shizuku sees herself out among the great music, the dances half in reverie for her, half placation. Brass resounds short toward glass, and no further into space. It is as full as her.

"You're bored with this crowd too?"

Composure is key. Shizuku does not turn away, rather glancing at the reflection of her new guest in the glass beside her. A cloak, and billowing pants, and a figure that speaks of little but tall graceful posture. The only thing off is the forced grit to their voice and the mask above. It's thorns - glitter and thin metal pressed into the shape of petals at the sides.

Shizuku says, "I wouldn't compare myself to you." Before she turns. "But yes. I am."

They smile. To her surprise, their teeth are uneven and only sharp in halves behind their lips, just as quickly hidden in a snort. "I've heard a lot about you. Hanaoka Shizuku, if I'm not mistaken."

"Charmed, I'm sure," she murmurs.

"I'd call it lucky," her masked suitor responds. "Not every day I get to meet a star of society."

"There are many stars outside," Shizuku says. With a gesture, she turns to the glass pane. "It's not that special."

The two of them stand in silence, Shizuku waiting for them to leave. But they don't. Pushy as most tend to be at first.

So she takes the first move. "Would you care to dance?"

"You read my mind."

Their arms extend as a lead's do, familiar as Kiyoharu's once did. But when they step closer, she begins to note the heels extending their height, and the soft curve of makeup along their cheek. Her heart skips a beat, but she does not misstep into their arms.

"Would you care to introduce yourself?" she says, as they begin an easy waltz.

"I'm no one special," they say, face turned, chin high above. They move like they know every step the two of them are to take, intimate and familiar in a way no man she's ever met seems to be aware. "But I couldn't let this opportunity pass."

Shizuku's lips burn with a smile she does not allow. "And why are you on this ship."

"I enjoy dancing," they say. "You would understand, wouldn't you?"

"And how," Shizuku finishes. "Did you get in here?"

Their eyes flicker behind the mask. "You're as smart as they said you'd be."

"But I doubt they know how much I wanted to escape myself," Shizuku whispers.
