Bonus Round 1.5: AUs

AUs

This round is CLOSED as of 7PM EDT on 10 June. Late comments are screened and will not receive points.



Second verse, same as the first! This is an overflow post for br1, meant to hold new prompts and their fills (so that we don't hit comment cap on the first br post).


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 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).

Ryouta speaks in ancient truths that the world has already forgotten, thousand of years ago. He cups his hands to the sky and whispers to the night sky, smiling up at the stars as they wink at him, taking his secrets and weaving them into the tapestry of the galaxy, hiding them all in plain sight, up where nobody would think to look. They speak back to him, giving him secrets in exchange that he stores away in glass bottles with cork stoppers, the same way he used to make and collect paper stars when he was a child.

The sky is beautiful with secrets and plain truths alike, swirling together and making a pattern that Ryouta wishes he could see from high above everything, and then higher above everything else. He wants to know what it feels like to hold all of it between his hands, but he's too small for that, too insignificant; nothing more than a speck in the grand scheme of things but sometimes, that's a comforting thought too. He can whisper what he likes to the stars and it won't matter if anybody can hear, if anybody can tell that it's him, when he isn't going to be here for very long at all.

Sometimes, though, he hears a reply through the stars. They'll carry it for him, bouncing from one end of the galaxy to the other and the stars won't wink at him so much as flash at them, giving them the whispered words of someone else, thoughts turned into whispered words turned into light turned into a pattern and then all the way back again, until Ryouta is left to translate a code that doesn't belong to him, pulsing light that spells out a name, Yukio.

"Yukio," Ryouta whispers to the stars, just to see the way they light up for the word.

They're beautiful, he thinks with a smile, and lets himself bask in the starlight, remembering the way it looks, remembering the way it sounds in his own voice, and wonders what Ryouta must sound like, in the voice of someone who lives half a galaxy and tens of hundreds of thousands of years away.

The world is vast and full of life, but looking up at the night sky and wanting to meet one particular person, Ryouta thinks to himself that perhaps this is what it feels like, to be lonely.

It's 2AM and Hitoka is in a very dark place. She's 23 pages deep in the tumblr tag for Kageyama Tobio, even though she has an 8AM lecture tomorrow morning. Out of courtesy to her housemates, she'd turned off the lamps in her room as the dim light of her monitor and backlit keyboard illuminate her very bad decision.

She'd planned to go to sleep early, really. Yet a leisurely browse through Hinata’s twitter had revealed a rare photo of Kageyama in a truly horrendous Hawaiian t-shirt. Also included in the selfie was Oikawa, their co-star for the new sports anime stage play. It doesn't help that Kageyama doesn't have his own twitter, and Hitoka had been forced to wade through endless selfies on Oikawa's account just to find a glimpse of Kageyama. One on one interactions between them were rare and in between, according to Hitoka's thorough social research. Yet, they had so much chemistry on stage that Hitoka had screamed softly the first time she watched Hyper Projection Engeki DVD.

It's not fair, Hitoka thinks as she continues scrolling through the page. So far, she's unearthed:

- Rare pre-debut photos of Oikawa in a yukata

- Clips of Kageyama's trip to Thailand, as documented on his last DVD. It was also the source of the infamous "knife-knuff-naisu" meme that came to life after Kageyama tried to ask locals for directions in English

- An old cellphone photo of Kageyama wearing a purple lobster suit, which Hitoke suspects came from his tenimyu days. She needs to ask Kiyoko-san, her senpai in life and fandom, about it later

Hitoke sighs and opens up LINE chat:

Yacchan ( 2:14): I can't sleep (`・/д\・)
Yacchan (2:14): Hinata's photo is so cute 。・゚゚・(>д<)・゚゚・。

"Why do you need magic?" Mayuzumi asks with a frown. "Why can't you just be a regular thief?"

Akashi blinks at him, as if nobody has ever thought to ask him this question before. Mayuzumi wouldn't be surprised; a ridiculous person like Akashi surrounds himself with equally ridiculous people and they'd all be more than happy to go along with his plans, as unnecessarily complicated as they are.

"What better way to steal?" Akashi asks, and vanishes.

Mayuzumi tries not to feel personally victimised by the entire universe, for having to deal with this sort of thing. He really tries.

"Fine," he relents. "Very dramatic and mysterious. Very impressive. Congratulations."

Akashi blinks back into sight, and he's carrying Nebuya's wallet. "People can't watch out for you if they don't know when they need to be looking, or where."

"Akashi!" Nebuya must have noticed that his wallet is gone.

"You will begin your training immediately," Akashi tells Mayuzumi, tossing Nebuya's wallet back to him.



Mayuzumi, as it turns out, is incredibly good at vanishing from sight. Perhaps that's why Akashi picked him, he thinks. He might be a mediocre thief at best, but there's something about invisibility that comes to him easily. It's appealing, he thinks, to be able to be left alone.

Unfortunately, Akashi's eyes let him see everything, and there's no escaping from that, no matter how good Mayuzumi is at making himself invisible. It's a helpful skill for a leader of a pack of vanishing thieves, Mayuzumi supposes, but he still hates the way that Akashi's gaze will seek him out every time, or the way an invisible hand will come to rest on his back, when Akashi is invisible too and Mayuzumi doesn't have the ability to see him in return.



It isn't their first successful heist, or even their fifth one, but the entire team is pleased with themselves today and that extends to Akashi too. He's generous with his praise today, and even more so with his smiles. He holds Mayuzumi's gaze when they're the only two left in their headquarters, a smile still sitting on the cupids bow of his lips.

"You did well, Chihiro," he murmurs, not for the first time today, but it sends the same warm feeling of pride down Mayuzumi's spine all the same, pooling in his stomach and making him feel more content than he'd like to admit. "You've come very far. I'm impressed."

"I guess I'm suited to this, like you first thought," Mayuzumi deflects, shrugging.

"Yes." Akashi's smile grows as he crosses the room. "I was definitely right about you."

He stops in front of Mayuzumi, leaning up, and presses a kiss to his lips. Then, Akashi vanishes.

"Of course," Mayuzumi mutters to himself, and marks that down on his mental list as yet another thing that Akashi has stolen, that would have been given to him freely.

The library is quiet when Akashi wakes up in the middle of the night.

(He is used to this, by now.)

He turns towards the window slowly: there, bathed in the moonlight, is someone whose face he has never seen, a silhouette of a man. Akashi doesn’t know if he wants it to look back, to run away, to talk. A shadow cannot talk, surely.

It is not a dream.

-

“Did you sleep well last night?” Mibuchi asks later, in the morning, when it is not moonlight but sunlight streaming through the large windows.

“There’s a painting in my room,” Akashi replies, without really answering the question. “Who is it?”

At that, Mibuchi’s smile falters just a little, but he picks it up in time before Akashi could really ask for more. “That’s—well, I’m afraid I don’t know, either.“

-

The painting is of a young man, silver-haired, sitting on the beach. Akashi can see the same beach outside his window, beyond the curb and shrubs on the other side of the road. It must’ve been painted some time ago, perhaps even before Akashi had been born.

You should find out, shouldn’t you? asks the Other Akashi, who’s now sitting beside him, cross-legged. He’s smiling, not unkindly. Isn’t that what you’re here for?

Akashi stands up and looks down, beyond his legs and bare feet, at his shadow.

There is nothing there.

-

“You know,” Nijimura tells him, over the phone, “I read this Greek story once about how people used to have two of everything. Two sets of hands, feet, whatever.”

“And what happened to that?”

“It was kind of unwieldy going around like that, I guess. That’s why people got split up into two. Then they’d spend all this time looking for whoever they originally were with—the other half.”

“The other half,” Akashi says. “I see. Thank you, Nijimura-san.”

“You doing okay out there? I know you’re an adult now, but—“

“I’m fine.”

When Akashi puts down the telephone in the room, something else lingers, coalescing in the air.

-

Akashi had run away from home, away from the university and what remains of the family mansion in Tokyo. None of it matters now, he thinks, as he sits up in bed at three-fifteen, watching the shadow stand in front the window.

Today the shadow turns, and Akashi can see the silver outline of his hair.

“Tell me your name,” Akashi says. He is not a young master anymore, not since the day he decided to wander, but it is hard to shake old habits. “Why are you here?”

But shadows, Akashi finds, cannot speak for themselves.

-

He shouldn’t stay here for long. One day, the police will find him, take him in for questioning, and everything will come crashing down. Promising university student sets fire to house, runs away days after father discovered dead. They would round up everyone who’d helped him along the way—Mibuchi, Nijimura, the others who had sneaked him out without asking questions.

Akashi doesn’t know why he’s here, how he got here. All he knows is the hollowness inside him growing larger and larger, waiting to be filled. If it had not been filled by the achievements of his schooling or upbringing, what else could he look forward to?

You shouldn’t wait any longer, the Other Akashi says, impatient this time. He’s always been the rasher of the two, demanding, wanting. If it fades away, you will never have a shadow.

“I know that,” Akashi replies. He sits on the bed, waiting, willing himself to not fall asleep. “I know what to do.”

-

When Akashi steps into the darkness, he finds something washing over him, a chill not of dread but of wonder. The shadow places its hands on his shoulders, leaning forward, and looks at him. There is no face there Akashi can see, but—

“I belong to you,” the shadow says, touching his face, “You already knew that, didn’t you? The moment you saw me.”

“Yes.”

Akashi can feel the wind coming in through the window, gently ruffling his hair. There is no warmth on his skin where the shadow is touching him.

It says, “I don’t want to be a shadow anymore.”

“You don’t want to, because you are alone.”

“No,” the shadow whispers, leaning in. “You don’t want to. You cannot bear the thought of it, to be invisible, despite everything you have done.

“Isn’t that why you ran away?”

Akashi smiles, showing teeth. “Perhaps.”

-

In the morning, when Mibuchi comes to knock on his door, he gets no response.

“That’s strange,” he says to himself, pushing on door. It, to his surprise, is locked. “Sei-chan always wakes up on time.”

When he finally finds the keys and unlocks the door, there is nobody in the room anymore.

-

“Where are we going?”

“If you do not want to be what you are anymore,” Akashi says, his footsteps heavier than he remembers them to be, “We need to fix that.”

“And here I thought you wanted me to be yours.”

“You obviously do not want that,” Akashi replies. He is standing on sidewalk, waiting for the bus. In his backpack, bulging slightly, is a wrapped portrait with an unfamiliar name inscribed in its frame. “But for now, this is the arrangement.”

“Otherwise I’ll never go anywhere, huh.”

This time, Akashi does not answer. But when the bus comes, and when he takes a step forward, the shadow following his movements is solid and real.

Other Tags: couple squabbles, will they ever get to painting the walls 2k17

Prompt: Domestic AU. Akashi and Mayuzumi can't decide on what colour to paint their apartment's walls. Naturally, Akashi wants to settle this through shougi. And naturally, Mayuzumi puts his foot down for a compromise instead-- or so it seems. (He's fonder than he thinks.)

Mayuzumi comes home to their brand new apartment to find that Akashi has been playing with the Nippon Paint sample cards yet again.

There's a square stuck up on the wall with tape, something from the unncessarily long off-white section of the colour catalogue, and he walks closer, squinting at the label to find that it's apparently called Reticent White.

"Reticent," he mutters to himself, tearing the square down and letting it drop to the floor. "Nice try."

That's not the worst of it; he turns around to find that one of the walls in their lounge room has another square stuck up, right in the centre. A bright red square that commands attention and he can't help but walk towards it like he's been magnetised. This one is labelled Drama Red, and Mayuzumi snorts loudly and takes great pleasure in tearing it off the wall too.

He doesn't drop it to the floor this time though, but slides it into his pocket instead. Only because he doesn't want it getting lost behind the couch, he reasons with himself, and he definitely doesn't want to risk it falling back into Akashi's hands so he can stick it up again.

Akashi, as usual, is sitting in his study and typing away at something on the screen, seemingly oblivious to Mayuzumi's one-sided fight with paint sample cards.

Mayuzumi knows him better than that, though. "I thought we agreed on a compromise, of some sort. Not an entirely new colour on the wall. Definitely not a feature wall."

"I don't see anything wrong in having something bright to draw attention," Akashi replies calmly. "My offer still stands. I'll agree to painting the walls whatever colour you choose, if you can beat me at shogi."

"You know how that's going to turn out," Mayuzumi mutters, folding his arms across his chest.

Akashi smiles, turning back to his computer screen. "I think the red feature wall will be quite striking."

Standing there, Mayuzumi breathes past his irritation and decides that he's going to change tactics. He hums, hoping that it sounds like agreement.

"I guess you're right. It is a prettty bright red, after all."

"I knew you'd come around eventually, Chihiro." Akashi sounds so smug that Mayuzumi makes a face at the opposite wall, where he can't see.

"I mean, it's even more eye-catching than your hair," Mayuzumi continues. "Or even your eyes. I don't know how I'd be able to look away, now that I think about it."

Akashi's typing slows to a stop. He turns his head, regarding Mayuzumi in silence for a moment.

"It's in your drawer, isn't it?" he asks abruptly.

"What is?" Mayuzumi asks, raising an eyebrow.

"The sample card that you liked best. Whatever colour it was. We'll use that. No feature wall."

"Are you sure?" Mayuzumi asks, walking over to his desk, opening the drawer and taking the sample card out from where he's kept it.

"Absolutely," Akashi replies. "Put it up on the wall. We'll buy the paint tins this weekend."

It's the small victories, Mayuzumi thinks to himself, cutting himself a strip of tape and carrying his sample card to the wall that they've spent the past week fighting over.

Fondness, the card reads, and Mayuzumi taps his finger against it, then turns away.

It fits their apartment.

Akashi is stressed.

At least, that's why Mayuzumi assumes that he's in the kitchen, a mixing bowl full of cookie batter in front of him while he has a tray full of cookies already rising in the oven. He isn't entirely sure, though. They might have been living together for the past three years, but that's still no guarantee that Akashi makes any more sense now than he did at any other point of their—

Well. He doesn't like to call it a relationship. Most of the time, he doesn't even like acknowledging that fact that this entire arrangement exists at all, where they live together while they attend the same university, sharing a cat, a bed, a life.

They're sharing a kitchen too and right now, it smells overwhelmingly like chocolate-chip cookies. Akashi looks up from his bowl when he notices Mayuzumi standing there, empty mug of tea still in his hand.

"Ah, Chihiro. Are you after the kettle?"

There's a smudge of flour on Akashi's cheek. It makes something burn in Mayuzumi's chest, the way it always does when he sees a small sign of something that actually humanises Akashi. Most of the time, save for the heartbeat and body warmth, Mayuzumi isn't entirely convinced that Akashi isn't just an elegantly designed robot.

"Chihiro?" Akashi prompts again when he doesn't get his answer.

"It's not even finals week," Mayuzumi mutters, but he isn't sure if it's directed at Akashi's cookie meltdown, or his own lapse in self control as he reaches out, threading his fingers into Akashi's hair and tilting his head, licking the flour away.

He can feel the way Akashi goes still against him. Mayuzumi licks his lips, then tugs on Akashi's hair to tip his head a little further back, kissing the curve where his jaw meets his neck.

The timer on the oven goes off, and Mayuzumi jerks backward as if it's broken some kind of spell. He doesn't meet Akashi's eyes, letting him attend to the cookies that must be done cooking.

"Will you have one?" Akashi asks, raising an eyebrow as he pulls the tray out of the oven, leaving it on top of the stove to cool.

"Right now? They'll be hot."

"I'm sure you can handle it." Akashi picks one of them up, unflinching even though they must be hot. He holds it out towards Mayuzumi, an expectant look in his eyes.

Whatever, Mayuzumi thinks to himself. He's burned himself on much less already.

It's when Akashi starts spending actual money on getting more melodisians that Mayuzumi starts being concerned. Not that he wants to be; Akashi can probably afford to sink tens of thousands of yen into a gacha game, the way that most other people personally can't. Perhaps it's jealousy, Mayuzumi thinks, but if it is, it's only about the fact that Akashi is rich enough to keep buying melodisians, when he can't.

"You should stop," he mutters, looking over Akashi's shoulder as they sit on the couch, watching as Akashi purchases enough to do another gacha roll. "For your own good, probably."

"You don't understand," Akashi replies, not even looking up from his phone. "For this period, there should be a higher chance of scouting this particular ultra rare of Rom."

Mayuzumi sighs, his shoulders dropping. He doesn't know if it's regret pooling in his gut, or second-hand embarrassment.

"Look at him," Akashi says, for what must be the fifth time tonight. "He's wearing his work shirt. He has the top button undone. He's drunk."

"I can see that," Mayuzumi replies evenly. "That fictional cat businessman sure is drunk."

"I need him," Akashi mutters, a plaintive note to his voice that makes Mayuzumi bury his face in his hands and sigh loudly.

"I shouldn't have introduced you to this game," Mayuzumi says. "I just wanted you to grind an event for me. You're good at anticipating tempo."

Akashi isn't even listening. He pushes his phone into Mayuzumi's hands. "Chihiro. Do a gacha roll for me."

"No," Mayuzumi replies immediately. "Too much pressure. Your cat businessman boyfriend won't show up. What then?"

"Chihiro." Akashi, damn him, is too convincing for Mayuzumi's wellbeing.

With a sigh, Mayuzumi taps the button to spend fifty melodisians. He skips the animation, and Akashi doesn't even look excited when he sees the gold card backing that promises a rare card. Mayuzumi has seen him dump four useless ultra rares already; he can't believe he's used up all of his gacha luck just to draw an ultra rare that Akashi isn't going to want.

Akashi taps the button to reveal all of them at once, and sucks in a deep breath.

"Chihiro," he breathes, his eyes fixed on the Rom, with his unbuttoned work shirt and drunk flush on his face, "I love you."

Mayuzumi feels warm and pleased about it, for all of three days.

"Seijuurou," he growls, storming out of their bedroom. "What the hell is a Rom dakimakura doing on our bed?"

Akashi doesn't look up from the song he's halfway through. "We were talking about getting a long body pillow anyway."

Mayuzumi wants to scream into his hands. "Show By Rock was a mistake."

Chihiro finishes the album on Friday, placing the last photo on the last page, and placing it back under the bed. It’s the last album in its pile; any on top of it would jam against the bedframe.

“You take too many photos,” says Chihiro, and Seijuurou snaps another picture of his annoyed face.

Seijuurou doesn’t ask if he takes too many photos why Chihiro insists on organizing them all into albums. He’d be happy to keep them in boxes, or sort through them himself, but Chihiro insist on doing it this way (and complains the whole time).

Despite Chihiro’s accusations, Seijuurou’s photography isn’t random, nor is it an attempt to comprehensively log all of his experiences. Sure, there’s the kitchen when they’d moved in and the kitchen after they’d had it renovated and the kitchen in various states with Chihiro cooking, but it’s because all of them are important. He’s not going to forget them but it’s nice to see them and get the reward of remembering right in that moment. There are other things, too; there are trains and offices and Chihiro outside the supermarket on a hot day, watermelon tucked uner his arm, sweat sticking his bangs to his forehead. There’s Chihiro on the beach, gesturing with his hand, talking about how Seijuurou’s going to get sand in his camera. There’s Reo and Kotarou’s last visit, the two of them drinking tea on the couch, Kotarou’s obnoxiously-popped collar. It’s the things he doesn’t forget but doesn’t necessarily remember to think about, or remember in the sharp detail of the moment captured by the camera.

“I still don’t get it,” says Chihiro, and Seijuurou takes a picture of the ceiling fan.

Chihiro grabs the picture from the end of the camera, before it’s finished developing. There’s a new album under their bed by the end of the day, with a red leather binding and no label. They’ll know which one it is.

There are a few pictures Seijuurou doesn’t let Chihiro have, for albums and otherwise. He has a small album of his own, kept in his locked desk drawer in the study, slim and blue. Chihiro, dozing on the couch, not even waking after the shutter clicks; Chihiro, soft look in his eyes as he stares into space (only making a halfhearted motion to hit away the camera afterward); Chihiro’s favorite books stacked on the end table; the posters Chihiro’s had since high school that he and Seijuurou have compromised on by putting them up in the guest room; the chipped bowl that Chihiro refuses to let Seijuurou replace. Those are the things he always remembers, the things he always wants to remember, the things he needs to keep with him.
