Bonus Round 2: Tic-Tac-Toe



Tic-Tac-Toe


Get three in a row! That's the goal of this bonus round. Inspired by a fanwork event type called kink bingo, this round encourages you to create and fill out themed prompt cards.

This round is CLOSED as of 7PM EDT on 24 June. Late comments are screened and will not receive points.


Please read this whole post before commenting to ensure that your team gets the most points possible. There's a lot of text here, but if you read carefully and follow the instructions step by step, you will be okay.


RULES
Please refer to the first comment thread of this post for an example of how this round works.

PROMPTING

  1. Select a ship to create your prompt card about. Platonic relationships are indicated by an "&" between the names (e.g., Haruki & Kazuma). Non-platonic relationships use "/" (e.g., Haruki/Kazuma). Please don't say "Any pairing," either!

  2. Visit this card generator.
    • Here is a visual guide to using it.
    • The large text box is where you can list prompts if you have your own ideas. Please list at least 9 prompts; you can list more if you want. (The generator says you need at least 24, but it's lying.) Single words or short phrases are better than sentences.
    • Otherwise, you can use the dropdown menu found right below it. Note: some of these prompts lists are NSFW. (NSFW prompts are a-ok as long as you tag for it.) If you don't like some of the options that appear in a prompt list, you can delete them.
    • Text prompts only, please. Also, each card square must be unique—don't list the same prompt 9 times.
    • In "Configuration Options," make sure you select 3x3 and (Normal prompt). This is the most important step!
    • Leave the tic-tac-toe card with its default colors, so everyone can read it clearly.
    • Click the "Create a bingo card" button.
    • Scroll down to see the card that was created for you. If you don't like the prompts it picked, you can reroll by clicking "Create a bingo card" again.
    • When you're satisfied, scroll further down the page until you see a textarea box full of HTML.
  3. Copy and paste the HTML from the box and into the body of your prompt comment, then post!

FILLING

Fill prompts by selecting an individual square to create fanwork for, then leaving a responding comment to the prompt with your newly-created work. (Optional:) If you can fill three squares from a prompt in a horizontal, vertical, or diagonal line, you get a tic-tac-toe (and an additional point bonus)! You can also just fill prompts as you please and get standard points.
  • Prompt squares are labeled as follows:
    A1 B1 C1
    A2 B2 C2
    A3 B3 C3
  • If you're trying for tic-tac-toe, you cannot combine squares into one fill. If your fill can satisfy multiple squares, pick the most relevant square: e.g., one square is sailing and another is pirates and you make a fill about pirates sailing, it's mostly pirates so put down the pirates square.
  • Each fill must stand alone as an individual piece, but all your fills can slot into a larger universe if you'd like.
  • You cannot fill a prompt square more than once, but you can fill every square on a tic tac toe card if you want to.
  • You cannot work with your teammates to get a tic-tac-toe. Only individually achieved tic-tac-toes get the bonus.
  • Multiple people can fill the same prompt square. You cannot "block" others from getting tic-tac-toe.
  • Remember to also follow the general bonus round rules, outlined here.
  • Here is a prompt/fill index for your convenience.

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 for each tic-tac-toe card (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
Tic-tac-toe Bonus: 2 points each for the first 12 achieved by your team

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!

Bolgia Nine: Sinners who, in life, promoted scandals, schism, and discord are punished here; particularly those who caused schism within the church or within politics. They are forced to walk around the circumference of the circle bearing horrible, disfiguring wounds inflicted on them by a great demon with a sword. The nature of the wound mirrors the sins of the particular soul; while some only have gashes, or fingers and toes cut off, others are decapitated, cut in half (as schismatics), or are completely disemboweled.


***


There were three of them to start out with, all
huddled together near the white back line;
nearly the same face, each black-haired and tall

and eager to get started-- to spike, shine
among their teammates, and prove their raw worth,
but; one, he could tell, had a setter's mind.

This kid had certain genius to unearth;
could understand the game, its strategy;
was fast, intuitive, and so brought forth

the worst of Oikawa's savagery
(the quiet kind, the kind he used up slow),
so, in addition to his captaincy,

began campaigns to deal a killing blow.
Dear Tobio-chan just didn't understand.
Anyone could tell he didn't know

how to talk to people; tact be damned,
his simple mind made blunt strokes of his words
and even comments that he gave offhand

were sometimes cringe-worthy once heard.
This was somewhere viable to start
to cleave away from their trio one third.

He gagged to think he'd have a heart-to-heart
with the kid, but what else was going to work?
And so when he wheeled over the ball cart

Oikawa pulled him aside. A smirk
danced across his face as he said
"We surely have some plays we must rework!

And what's been going through your thick, thick head?
I see you watching them, and watching you
I know you see their footwork and instead

think of what they could be if they just knew
a better, stronger way to play the game.
Why not tell them, Tobio-chan? I always do."

(He never did. Now, really, who's to blame?
The one who gives the bad advice, or takes?)
And so began the forging of his name,

he festers, spoils, and soon his smile breaks
with fragile friendships, too. His arrogance
and sharp demands bereft of praises shape

the next two years. He'll learn. Pure excellence
does not a leader make. Later, sent by
Seijou's coach and perhaps some petulance,

Oikawa, big fish, swims among the fry,
sits in the stands and sees the toss, its fall,
the echoed bounce of teamwork gone awry,

and Tobio-chan sits down after coach's call
a towel over his head so he could cry
and really, perhaps there was no team at all

and Oikawa cannot figure why;
he'd only sought to cleave one from the pack
but doing so sent the whole team to die.

And as he stares at his kouhai's bent back,
imagines Iwa-chan dropping his toss,
some part of him feels like it's grown a crack,

a fracture somewhere sharp and deep. The loss
stings, even though he's long removed from them.
To see him fail does not seem worth its cost.

His kouhai wipes his eyes; his chest sinks, grim.
This must be what it's like to lose a limb.

You had me at Boston sightseeing since I'm in Boston a lot. This comes from several visits to the Prudential Skywalk Observatory.

***

Yuuri was glad for this wall at the bottom of the panoramic windows: it created the sense of having a railing even if these windows were made of industrial strength glass. Below was fifty stories of rooftops and streets, a really long way down. He had been to the top of taller buildings, but lingering jetlag plus a raging headache enhanced this visit to the top of the Prudential Tower in a not nice way.

He pried his eyes away from the really long way down to see Phichit practically pressing his face against the glass, that huge grin still visible.

“Wow, you really can see the whole city from here!” Phichit chirped.

“Yeah it’s pretty amazing,” Yuuri responded faking a cheery tone.

Yuuri made himself look out the windows again, only this time focusing on the tall buildings that comprised the Boston skyline and the huge patch of green that he was sure was Boston Common. Yuuri tried to tune out that rap song playing in an exhibit on immigration history that was playing nonstop. By now he could recite the lyrics to this educational ditty about American immigration requirements. He had probably heard it at least five times peppered with recorded cheers from this other exhibit on Boston sports.

“Here is where we landed this morning,” he heard Phichit say. Yuuri walked a little closer and saw Phichit holding his phone out in one hand and one of those self-guided narration boxes in the other. “That speck out there is Logan International Airport, look there’s a plane coming in. Welcome to Boston, people!”

Yuuri’s grimace widened to a smile; his old friend had this adorable look of wonder. Phichit moved to another window, Yuuri could hear a faint voice from the audio box.

“And there is the TD Garden, that’s where we will be competing tomorrow,” Phichit continued. “See that big green sign by that really pretty bridge?” Phichit turned around and Yuuri could see the back of Phichit’s phone focused squarely on him. “And this is my competitor and good buddy Yuuri Katsuki. Say hi Yuuri.”

Yuuri waved and forced a smile.

“Uh, hi Phichit’s followers!” Yuuri greeted.

Phichit waved the hand holding his audio device.

“Yuuri is such a patient guy for letting me drag him around after a twelve-hour flight,” Phichit continued.

“Hey anything for you,” Yuuri replied with a thumbs up.

Thankfully Phichit turned the camera back to the windows. Yuuri subtly looked down at his watch; it was around 5:30 p.m. and they had to be two floors up at Top of the Hub for a big pre-competition reception in half an hour. Yuuri took it on himself to keep Phichit on task and on schedule. This was a good way for Phichit to see where some other Boston landmarks were located so they could do some real sightseeing after the competition, hopefully when Yuuri had more rest and more food.

“Hey Yuuri, look,” Phichit called. Yuuri walked over to him, finding it a little more comfortable to look out the window. Phichit pointed out a big neon sign for Citgo and an open building right behind it. “See that, that’s where the Red Sox play! That’s Fenway Park!”

Yuuri looked out, seeing seats, big screens, and that famous green wall.

“Wow it sure is!” Yuuri replied. “I remember when Daisuke Matsuzaka got traded to them in ’07; it was pretty big deal, my whole family was freaking out.” Yuuri looked up and looked squarely at the back of Phichit’s phone. “You taking candids or something?”

“Yup,” Phichit answered right back.

Yuuri pressed his forehead against the glass and groaned a little, he could see Phichit busy on his phone out of the corner of his eye. Phichit tapped his shoulder and Yuuri looked over, seeing a photo of himself looking out the window on Instagram.

“Wow that’s almost artistic,” Phichit snickered. “That’s a really good angle. The lighting here is perfect too”

Yuuri groaned again but found himself grinning. He took a second look at the photo, Phichit was right; Yuuri saw an almost wistful look on his face as he gazed out at one point on the Boston skyline. Of course he noticed his eyebags and every wrinkle on his jacket, but this was a good picture.

“Wow, I really like this,” Yuuri said. He took out his own phone and accessed his Instagram, doing a slight double take when he saw the photo had over three hundred likes already. He just smiled and regrammed it for his own followers.

“Make that your profile pic,” Phichit urged, lightly elbowing his arm.

“Maybe later,” Yuuri snickered. “We should be getting upstairs pretty soon.

“Yeah we should, we’ll get some better pictures too.”

“There you go! The sun will be going down by then, I’m sure it’s really pretty up here when all the lights come on.”

Phichit smiled wide and nodded, that happiness shooting right through Yuuri’s being and waking him up a little more.

“One thing first!” Phichit declared, raising his camera.

Yuuri knew exactly what he had in mind. He positioned himself by the window as Phichit hooked up his selfie stick. Phichit then squeezed beside him, Yuuri smiled wide as Phichit’s phone screen went in front of them. Phichit adjusted the stick and Yuuri got a good view of his face squished against Phichit’s with a gorgeous view of the skyline behind them.

“Say Bahhston!” Phichit urged.

A giggle snuck out of Yuuri before he composed himself.

“Bahhston!” Yuuri and Phichit said at the same time.

For a moment he prayed they hadn’t just offended some locals, but a little chuckle from someone a few feet away put him a little at ease. Yuuri saw Phichit’s finger twitch and a few frames slide to the bottom of the screen. Phichit pulled away and brought up the photo. Yuuri had to smile at how happy they looked. Phichit uploaded the photo to his account, then disconnected his selfie stick.

“We should probably get going,” Phichit said.

“Yeah probably not a bad idea,” Yuuri replied, patting him on the shoulder.

Prompt:

turn your thoughts away from cold unfeeling light no one's gonna hurt you / no one's gonna dare to love another person is to see the face of god
you can look right through me / walk right by me / and never know i'm there because i knew you / i have been changed for good the winner takes it all / the loser's standing small
the price of love is loss / but still we pay / we love anyway there's only yes / only tonight i'm erasing myself from the narrative

***

The pool is filled with glass in the sun. Manami hovers at the edge. People jump in. Everyone else jumps in, or slides in, and some are thrown, laughing the whole way. Ears buzz in so much sound. It's surprising.

Manami is covered head to toe in sunscreen, but their skin still sizzles in the heat. Red face and shallow breath, they're smiling with everyone else. It echoes against them. Fills them up till they could suffocate. People play and Manami's knees stay locked in curious observation.

It's a short fall. One of many. Manami trips often. Usually it is falling into confetti decorated carpeting or graying tile floors. But here, glass slices through their nose, settling deep in their lungs. It makes them gasp. Summer fire wilts in the face of chilly welcoming below. There is no crash, and though their arms windmill against the pressure, it is not like falling at all. The scent of chemical cleanliness cuts till there is nothing but burning ease settling behind their eyes. Open, they can see how the world looks beneath. Muted. Calm. And very gently blue. Light breaks through the surface like leaves falling past a window, rippling against people's legs across the way. No one notices. They do not know what they feel till the moments before they pass out.

---

"You never learned how to swim?"

"I tried," they say.

She stares at them in measured silence, seconds counted behind her eyes, like she's waiting for something. They don't know what. In Miyahara's head are a thousand mysteries that they do not question.

"Surely you know how to float."

They laugh. "I sink like a rock in a pool, rep!"

"Then why is everything you own covered in dolphins!"

Manami shrugs.

Pool noodles float around and they hang off one to the other, wrapped around their arms like flying snakes. Miyahara stands tall overhead, never quite sticking her feet in too far. She's responsible. The fact of their relationship is her plays at practice life guarding. It's not a club - not a sport. Swimming is a necessity, she tells them, and they nod enthusiastically. Manami always has. Years do not change that fact.

Miyahara cares too much to not try to be in charge.

---

"We need a doctor!"

"Honey, Sangaku will be fine. You got there in time."

"But I read about this! Water gets in the lungs. If you catch pneumonia, you could die!"

"Sangaku goes to the doctor enough regardless. Don't worry so much."

Ears leak water. Their head is cold, forehead hot, belly roiling between space and time. It's a pitiful whine of agreement they hear, rather than more arguments.

"Rep?"

It comes out as a belch, a cough of chlorine and sharp blue, and Miyahara jumps to attention.

"Sangaku! What were you doing!"

Falling, sinking, flying. They smile. "The pool's really cool, rep."

"You're too sick to swim! I shouldn't have brought you ... I'm so sorry."

She's pale - her hair pressed up to her head under a swim cap, goggles in place of glasses, and to o overwhelmingly prepared for everything.

"No," they say. "Let's come back again sometime."
