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.

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!

The Teiko Basketball Club continues to be a middle school version of Secret History (but with basketball.)


***


“While I agree that basketball is an important thing,” Kuroko began to say, before he saw Akashi’s raised eyebrow and corrected himself, “... Perhaps the most important thing, I cannot accept murder as a solution to the problem with Haizaki, Akashi-kun.”

“And besides, he may have parents, family and friends who care for him. It would not do well to take him away from them because he is a terrible person and worse teammate,” said Kuroko, who seemed to be unaware of the danger he was in, the more he spoke about this issue.

Akashi shook his head. Haizaki was an orphan, and lived with his uncle, who traveled extensively and did not seem to care particularly for him. As far as he could tell, Haizaki had no friends outside the club, and no friends inside of it as well.

“I don’t need your help,” Akashi said, which was maybe a lie.

The rest of the club also proved resistant to the idea, although for different reasons. Midorima pointed out the myriad of reasons that Akashi’s plans could go wrong (an impossibility, but Akashi indulged him.) Murasakibara refused to commit to moving the body or any sort of digging. Aomine merely looked at them, bewildered. There was really no room in his brain for anything other than tits and basketball.

Kise supported Akashi a hundred percent, although he earned extra laps by implying that Akashi would not be able to do it without being caught. He was still relatively new to the culture of the club, after all, and had not yet learned that such naked expressions of doubt were always unwelcome.

*

Finally, it came to this: Haizaki was certainly a pain and a nightmare to deal with, but murder was expensive and hazardous. So Akashi allowed Haizaki to come to practice, to bully Kise, to generally be a boorish and rude clot. During games, he was benched in favor of Kise, which filled him with rage, but still, he was a part of the club.

“I thought you wanted to get rid of me,” Haizaki said one evening, catching one of Kuroko’s passes and spinning the ball on his finger. His mouth was stretched into a wide, mocking smile, which irritating Akashi more than he was willing to admit.

“All in good time,” Akashi said pleasantly.
*

Haizaki’s demise came about like this: it was late afternoon and the club was still deep into their after-school practice. Nationals loomed large within the minds of all of them, and through the shouts of the members and the bouncing of balls and the squeak of basketball shoes on the floor, it was easy to ignore the wail of the sirens.

At least until Momoi ran in, tears streaming down her face. It was the most terrible thing, she said. A truck, overloaded with fruits and vegetables, had barreled into the gates of the school. So far, there was one known fatality: Haizaki Shougo, who had been skipping practice that day.

In light of the tragic circumstances, Akashi cancelled the day’s practice. Kuroko gave him a suspicious look as he went by, but Akashi only gave him a serene smile in return.

He could hardly be blamed for out-of-control fruit trucks, could he?

No, not all.

*FUCKING SHRIEKS*

This! This was so hilarious, omg. I can't BELIEVE IT. XDD I love the bit about ' Kuroko, who seemed to be unaware of the danger he was in, the more he spoke about this issue' BECAUSE OF COURSE KUROKO HAS NO IDEA OF HOW DANGEROUS IT IS TO SPEAK AGAINST AKASHI. Sure, Akashi's plotting to kill a teammate but that doesn't mean Akashi would kill HIM. Of course not! He is so innocent, precious Kuroko.

Also, as much as I love Aomine, this description of him makes me laugh whenever I think of it: There was really no room in his brain for anything other than tits and basketball.

POOR AOMINE. And poor Kise! I CAN'T BELIEVE YOU, KISE. YOU'RE WILLING TO HELP AKASHI MURDER KISE?

...Well, he is the one that'll benefit the most from Haizaki dying but still. HOW EASILY HE IS CORRUPTED.

The last bit nearly killed me. Seriously. I was drinking water and I choked it while laughing. MURDER BY FRUIT TRUCK.

Akashi is an evil GENIUS and you write him so, SO well. XDDD

Kuroko does not yet know he can be REPLACED. He'll know soon enough!!!

I mean, this is just Akashi's take! You and I know that Aomine has depths. Maybe. He has shallows that have sinkholes in them. YEAH.

Kise is 100% for murdering Haizaki, for sure. I mean, sure, sure, when the Winter Cup comes around during high school and he's gotten Character Development With Senpai, he'd been willing beat Haizaki on the court but during middle school? NO WAI KILL THE BASTARD.

FRUIT TRUCK. Maybe driven by Shutoku's fruit-throwing senpai's dad?
