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.

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!

***

Midorima is so elegant and he doesn’t even know it yet, slim fingers dancing over the shogi board, eyes sharply in focus behind his glasses, uniform pressed perfectly over his body, mouth pressed into a thin line as he looks over the board, analyzing each possible outcome. He is careful, perhaps overly so, but it works in his favor; his opponent loses patience and what focus they have left they direct at Midorima in anger. Midorima doesn’t care, mind occupied to overflow with tiles and checks and traps, and Midorima always wins.

Unless his opponent is Akashi.

Sometimes Akashi thinks he’s lucky, to have such strong competition in his own shogi club, someone who will play with him and go nearly toe-to-toe, someone like Midorima who loses without concession, who knows he cannot win but shows up to try the next day, strategy slightly tweaked, resolve bolstered. If Akashi only had the rest of the club members, then there would really be no point in showing up and destroying them day after day. On the other hand, shogi competitions with other schools are invariably boring. Akashi wipes the floor with whoever gets picked to face him; Midorima destroys his opponents in that elegant, methodical way, and Teikou wins. Not that there’s anything boring about winning, but Akashi lets himself wonder about the possibility of seeing Midorima for the first time again, across the table, of rediscovering that there is someone in the middle school circuit who is a worthy, if still distant, second to him. Of showing up to every competition and knowing Midorima will be at the end of the other bracket.

But then he wouldn’t know Midorima, even though that’s beside the point. There is no use getting caught up with what could have been, only what is and what might be (Akashi knows that all too well). And as things stand, he and Midorima are in the shogi club together, and he knows Midorima, all the little quirks and eccentricities, the way he always likes to arrange the tiles and pack them up, his obsession with horoscopes, how seeing other people use flaps on a book jacket to mark their pages makes him sneer, how elegant and enticing he has become, at the start of their third year, baby fat gone from his cheeks, tall and broad-shouldered.

“We should go to different high schools,” Akashi says. “Play each other in competitions.”

Midorima hesitates, a fraction of a second, and then nods (because Midorima, like everyone else, will always say yes, and Akashi, sometimes, almost wants him to say no). He casts his eyes down at the board, at Akashi’s checkmate, gathering the scene in his mind. Akashi lets him study it, studies him studying it, the set of his shoulders and the bend of his hand as his fingers flutter in conjunction with his mind. Elegant, sharp, the point at the top of the tile. Akashi leans over and waits for Midorima to notice.

It takes a while, but Midorima looks up, color flooding his face, the same red as the lettering on the tile nearest his fingertips. His eyes falter; Akashi leans the rest of the way over and kisses him.

“I,” says Midorima, and stops himself.

“That was a good game,” says Akashi.

“I—yes,” says Midorima, fingers clenched on the edge of the table. “It was.”
