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!

***

“This is a shit idea.”

“Fuck you, this is great.”

Kagami stands shivering in the snow, fumbles with his flashlight, and almost drops it. Aomine’s too busy flipping over some tires to notice him. Maybe this is his cue, Kagami thinks as the icy wind stings his face, to run away. Run back to the car, rev up the engine, leave Aomine to die out here in the cold because he deserves it.

Too bad Aomine’s the one with the car keys. (Kagami made a mental note to steal them back, because there is no way he’s gonna let Aomine anywhere near the driver’s seat at this point.)

“Oi!” Aomine shouts, into the darkness of the deserted parking lot. He waves around a stick they’d found half-buried near the car menacingly. “I know you’re there, fucking ghost!”

“We’re gonna die,” Kagami mutters to himself, teeth chattering. “We’re gonna fucking die out here you idiot, stop calling them to us, what—”

“Ghosts aren’t fucking real, Bakagami,” Aomine says, clearly too drunk to realize he’s the one who’s even more scared of ghosts than Kagami is. He walks up to the broken glass door, knocking at the brick wall. “They’re…they’re haunting, the Blockbuster.”

“You…you just said they aren’t real,” Kagami says incredulously, but Aomine’s already let himself inside. Whether or not Aomine’s ignoring him because of the alcohol or if he’s just that big of an asshole remains to be seen; Kagami sighs, biting his lip, and follows him. He’d been the one who’d joked about them going on an adventure, after all—but he hadn’t known it would’ve come down to this.

“Why the fuck am I even here.”

“Because you love me?”

“I hate you,” Kagami mutters. Then, “Oi, where the hell are you? I can’t see a thing.”

“I’m—“

There’s a crash, and he hears Aomine curse somewhere to the right of him. Only the tiniest bit of streetlight filters in through the holes in the door, and suddenly Kagami feels the hair stand up at the back of his head. Ghosts or not, it’s clear from the musty scent and lack of electricity that nobody’s been here for a long time.

(And even if there have been—he isn’t sure he wants to be accidentally walking into a meth lab, or something.)

“Hey, Ahomine,” Kagami whispers, urgently. “There’s nothing here, okay? We should leave.”

“What, you scared?”

He really shouldn’t have let Aomine have at his beer stash in the trunk. Kagami would probably laugh at him later for only daring to explore this place with alcohol in his system, but at the moment he isn’t feeling much braver either. There’s something spooky about the tiny bits of light reflecting off the metal railings, the deserted countertops—

Then he hears footsteps.

“Aomine, this isn’t funny.”

“I’m fucking funny, Kagami,” Aomine slurs, but his sound’s still coming from the right of Kagami as he maneuvers his way to where his boyfriend stands. Kagami swallows. The footsteps, if he’d heard correctly—it was the wind, it had to be—had come from his left. “I can out-funny a ghost anytime. Hey ghost, wanna hear a joke?”

“Aomine—“

“Is that his name?” comes a soft voice, unfamiliar, right next to Kagami's ear. “Aomine-kun?”

Kagami screams at the same time Aomine does, and he reaches out to grab his boyfriend by the wrist as he turns around to dash out the door, banging it open as they scramble out into the cold. He feels his legs buckle as he slows, and he kneels into the soft snow, panting. It’s cold enough that there’s no smell of rust in the air, but he can start feeling the cuts on his shoulder from the glass they’d just broken through. It hadn’t been a lot of glass, but—

He chances a look backwards now that they are far enough away. Seeing nothing but the terrifying black void of the doorway, Kagami exhales slowly as he stands up again, shaking. “Fuck, what the fuck, was that—“

“It’s just me.”

Kagami freezes.

Aomine’s hand is still in his, cold, dry, surprisingly un-sweaty for someone who sweats as much as he does. It’s also small—too small to be Aomine’s.

Kagami looks up slowly, finding himself staring into the hollow eyes of a young man, snowflakes falling steadily into his light blue hair. The streetlight behind him shines right through him, golden and eerie. Somehow, he finds himself unable to let go.

“Hello,” the ghost says. “I’m Kuroko Tetsuya. Do you want to borrow a movie?”

Kagami faceplants into the snow.

I mean, they'd definitely sleep in a library, especially if they're supposed to be studying. :P

(Wait, do kids study in libraries anymore? Lol, I'm so old.)

Same as canon!

This was such a treat to read! The tension is palpable and I was terrified that I was about to read something that would keep me up at night, but that ending was a+++ and the perfect bit of humor to dispel all that stress at once.

Thank you so much for sharing!
