Bonus Round 2: Tic-Tac-Toe


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

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.

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.

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


  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!


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.

Bonus round shenanigans all happen in the comments below. Brand-new works only, please.

Required Work Minimums:
  • 400 words (prose)
  • 400px by 400px (art/images)
  • 14 lines (poetry)

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.

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.

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 first thing Miya does when Kita pushes him up against the wall and clicks the handcuffs into place is laugh, tipping his head back until it's resting on Kita's shoulder.

"You know I'm going to be out of these things by the time the sun rises."

"I'd like to see you try," Kita replies and he means it more than he's willing to admit. He likes playing this game, watching as Miya outsmarts the system, finding loopholes in loopholes, talking circles around the most experienced detectives with the same ease and skill that his twin brother does when he's in court.

The Miya name is a famous one among Kita's particular circle of law enforcement, and it's either said in tones of resignation or spat out like a curse because there are only two ways that a run-in with either of the twins will end but either way that it goes, they're the ones running the game, and they're the ones who will win.

Kita has learned a long time ago that it's much more enjoyable to play along to whatever they want for a while, and then back off enough to watch from the sidelines. He's best at standing back and watching instead of being in the thick of it himself; it's too easy to lose himself and lose sight of the whole picture when he's there. Everything makes much more sense from a distance. Miya makes more sense from a distance too, but Kita's never been that good at keeping enough of a distance when he's involved. He figures that everyone's allowed their mistakes, and Miya is Kita's favourite kind of mistake to make.

Now, pinning Miya against the wall, partially with his body weight and mostly with Miya's permission, he tightens the cuffs until they're just this side of painful. Miya gasps, mock-surprised.

"Do you feel like being rough with me today, officer?"

"Be glad that no one else can hear you," Kita mutters, "or I'd have to rise to that bait."

"Isn't it a shame that you won't?" Miya smiles, then lets out a genuine gasp as the handcuffs tighten a little more. "I'd rather not lose circulation in my hands, if it's all the same to you."

"Look at you, though," Kita mutters, looking down at where Miya's hands are flushing. "Literally caught red handed."

Miya laughs then, too loud, too amused, and it draws the attention of the other officers around. "See? This is why you're my favourite."

Simple and clean is the way that you're making me feel tonight.

What I meant when I said no.
And maybe some things are that simple. When we're older- you'll understand.
You're giving me too many things lately; you're all I need.

It's hard to let it go. Hold me - whatever lies beyond this morning; is a little later on.
Wish I could prove I love you - but does that mean I have to walk on water?

Sorry to call so early, but I wanted to hear your voice... Hey, a sparrow just chirped. Please talk about whatever kind of things like that. The steam train carrying children that can't become adults goes back and forth between ideals they can't give up and here. Time turns and turns, and we all disappear too and find sadness in days so hectic that it has no direction anymore.
When the forget-me-nots are in bloom, I remember the color of the petals, a dream of rising high into the sky with that girl with the quiet eyes. Control Tower, you can you see the future we dreamed together, right? Isn't it beautiful? I can see it. If you choose any one, it will break without a sound. "That's love," I joked, and you laughed. (They're talking about a misanga here, but do w/e)
Our lungs can keep breathing from now until we make it up and back down. Even if we make it, I think we'll say "Let's go again!" Aiming for the top. Entangled in the complex meaning of things, I can't help it, they’re tightly winding around my neck. When you know freedom, you begin to want to fly and become aware of your overflowing feelings.

Oikawa is halfway through his second latte of the night when he spots him. It’s the third time this week that Bed Head has stopped by the library, meandering slowly through the shelves, all long limbs and unruly black hair.

The guy checks out so many books and has so many outstanding rentals that Oikawa really should know his name by now, but it still escapes him. Taro? Tamaki? Something with a T.

“Kuroo Testurou.”

“Um,” Oikawa startles, looking up to find Bed Head looming over the rental desk, smirking. Had Oikawa been thinking out loud? Oh, please lord, not again—

“I forgot my library card at home,” Bed Head explains, leaning back, out of Oikawa’s space, “But you should be able to look up my info with my name, right?”

“Oh,” Oikawa swallows, adjusting his glasses, “No, actually. I could look it up with a phone number, though.”

Bed Head – Kuroo, Oikawa corrects himself – smirks again, “That’s a pretty clever way of getting a guy to give you his number, huh?”

“Very funny,” Oikawa deadpans, though his cheeks go pink, “Just save it, I’ll check you out on the main library card.” Kuroo holds his hands up in surrender, and Oikawa takes to checking out the pile of books one by one.

A collection of motivational speeches. Beep.

A book entitled “How to Avoid Large Ships.” Beep.

A cookbook dedicated to soufflés. Beep.

Oikawa really shouldn’t be letting this guy check out more books, not when he has at least a dozen late rentals. In fact, if it were any other librarian, they would be pressing Kuroo to pay the massive amount of late fees he owes them. But Oikawa is only part-time, and this guy is just cute enough to get away with it. So, fuck it.

Besides, Oikawa thinks, looking surreptitiously up at Bed Head, noticing the way he’s pretty clearly checking Oikawa out – this guy will definitely be back.

“Here you go. Have a wonderful day,” Oikawa hands the books over and Kuroo takes them, pausing, like he was expecting more. But Oikawa just raises an eyebrow at him.

Finally, Kuroo clears his throat, “Until next time, then,” he says, winking. He’s definitely trying to sound smooth. It’s for that reason that Oikawa pretends not to notice when Kuroo trips over his own feet on the way out of the library.


Bed Head doesn’t return for a while after that, and the absence goes on so long that Oikawa starts to get a bit annoyed. Not only does this guy owe the library thousands of yen in late fees, Oikawa now apparently has to re-evaluate his skill in sussing when a guy is checking him out.

“Maybe it’s the glasses,” Oikawa mumbles, adjusting his plastic frames. They aren’t prescription, so he could always just ditch them, but it would certainly mess with his whole Librarian Chic look, which had taken months to cultivate.

“The glasses are cute!”

“... Excuse me?”

He’s been snuck up on again. Although, this time, when Oikawa looks up, it’s not Kuroo in front of him, but a seeming newcomer. A newcomer with biceps the size of a baby’s head, at that.

“Sorry, I was— I overheard you talking to yourself,” Huge Biceps says, running a hand through his hair. His hair, upon further inspection, might actually be the oddest thing about him; it’s streaked with silver and gelled all to hell. Oikawa tugs at his own bangs in sympathy for the surely over-worked strands.

“Well, thank you, in any case!” Oikawa says, tipping back in his chair, “I’m glad someone around here has good taste.”

“I’m Bokuto, by the way!” Huge Biceps says, grinning, “Bokuto Koutarou!”

“Did you, uh, want to open a library card? Bokuto-san?”

“Oh,” Bokuto frowns, like getting a library card in a library is an afterthought, rather than the main reason a person comes into a library in the first place, “Sure, why not?”

Oikawa helps Bokuto through all the requisite paperwork and checks out his books, sending him on his way with eight volumes of the Chobits manga. Throughout it all, Bokuto’s eyes, an eerie shade of flaxen yellow, follow the movements of Oikawa’s hands eagerly. Oikawa smiles wanly up at him, and Bokuto returns the small smile with a wide grin of his own, his entire face completely unguarded.

Bokuto is a strange guy, is the conclusion Oikawa comes to. Strange, and interesting.

Finally, Bokuto and his massive muscles take their leave, “I’ll be back!” he says on his way out the door, “To bring these back!”

“That’s kind of the whole point of a library!” Oikawa yells back, earning him a good shushing from the other librarian on duty. But Bokuto is already gone.


Working at the local library has never really been boring, per se, but it does have a great deal of down time. For this, Oikawa has always been grateful – he’s able to save up money by working part time, and can even finish a lot of his homework during the great lulls of time he’s afforded. Not to mention, having to stock and restock the books gives him an edge on his fellow university students when it comes to finding the exact right resources for his research papers.

But now, it seems, his time is also occupied by Kuroo and Bokuto, who visit the library far more often than any normal person needs to. If he didn’t know any better, Oikawa would think they were annoying him on a prearranged schedule: on days when Kuroo doesn’t visit, Bokuto is sure to, and vice versa.

Bokuto actually does return his books, and he starts checking out volumes and volumes of manga regularly. He only ever reads shoujo.

Kuroo never does return the books he checks out, but Oikawa is somehow always sweet-talked into letting him rent even more books. One compliment about his new overcoat and Oikawa is letting Kuroo walk out with three textbooks on molecular biology, two copies of Shakespeare’s Measure by Measure (why does he need two?), and a large book on the history of the automobile.

“Your tastes are as eclectic as ever, Tetsu-chan,” Oikawa sighs. He’s long since dropped the pleasantries with him.

“What can I say?” Kuroo leans against the rental kiosk, “I’m an interesting guy.”

“If we’re going by the textbook definition, probably.”

Kuroo raises an eyebrow, “Are you saying you’re not interested in me?”

At this, Oikawa stands up, shoving the paper bag full of books into Kuroo’s arms. Kuroo stumbles back with an ooomph!, “Alright, alright I get it! But I’m interested in you, just so you know.”

Oikawa sits back down, “Everyone is! Get in line, Tetsu-chan.”

“C’mon!” Kuroo whines, “Will you at least give me your name? I’ve been coming here for forever.”

“Maybe return your books for once in your godforsaken life and I’ll consider it,” Oikawa sniffs. Truthfully, he had forgotten that Kuroo, for all of his many visits, still didn’t actually know his name. He had just kind of assumed that he had.

Not fifteen minutes after Kuroo leaves, Bokuto strolls in. A rare back-to-back visit, Oikawa thinks as he watches Bokuto deposit his books in the return bin and then make a bee-line to Oikawa’s desk.

“Morning!” he chirps.

“It’s two in the afternoon, but sure,” Oikawa says warily, taking in the way Bokuto seems to be fidgeting with his hands, picking at his nailbeds, “Did you have something you want to say?”

“That obvious, huh?” Bokuto rubs the back of his neck, looking far more bashful than Oikawa has ever seen him before. The blush tinging his ears is actually quite cute.

“Well, I just realized that I’ve been coming here for a while and I don’t even know your name!”

“Huh,” Oikawa narrows his eyes, “You’re the second guy today to ask me that.”

“O-Oh? You must be popular!”

“Obviously,” Oikawa mumbles. But Bokuto seems pretty harmless and nice, not to mention he actually returns his books, as a loyal library patron should. There’s no harm in humoring him, right?

“Oikawa. Oikawa Tooru.”

“Nice!” Bokuto looks ecstatic, “Nice to meet you Oikawa. I would introduce myself, but, uh, you already know my name. I should have thought of something else to say here, huh?”

Oikawa smiles in spite of himself, “No, you’re good. It’s nice to meet you officially, Bokkun.”

It’s an all-around nice moment of budding friendship – at least until Kuroo shows up.

“What the hell?!” He seems to appear out of nowhere, striding over from where he was hiding among the children’s books, pouting all the while, “So uncool, why do you like Bokuto more than me?”

“Don’t be mad,” Bokuto winds an arm around Kuroo’s shoulders, “You’re sometimes an acquired taste.”

“Not true! You’re supposed to be the acquired taste – I’m supposed be the suave, alluring bad boy.”

There’s no way in hell that’s true, Oikawa thinks, before pausing.

“Hold on… you two know each other?”

Bokuto and Kuroo exchange a look, a pretty palpable current of familiarity passing between them, before turning back to Oikawa. “This is my boyfriend,” they say at the same time, gesturing to each other.

Excuse me?!” Oikawa bolts upright, struggling to keep his voice down to a furious whisper, “Tet—Kuroo, correct me if I’m wrong, but have you not been trying to get in my pants for, what, two months now?”

“Well, yeah,” Kuroo doesn’t even look embarrassed about it, “But so was Bokuto!”

Bokuto goes pink, but doesn’t deny it. Oikawa is more confused than ever, “And you were cool with that? Both of you? Then what the hell were you even mad about just now, Kuroo?”

“Because you told him your name but wouldn’t tell me!” Kuroo wails, earning him a few glares from the rest of the people actually using the library for normal library purposes, “And your nickname for him is way cuter!”

“We were trying to approach you separately,” Bokuto explains. He, at least, has the wherewithal to look a bit sheepish about everything.

“But I got too frustrated,” Kuroo adds.

“Anyway, we think you’re really cute and would like to take you on a take. If you’re okay with that!”

Oikawa realizes he’s still standing, and forces himself to sit down, legs a bit shaky.

“A date with… both of you?” he ventures.


“Yes, please.”

“I’ll even bring back all my late library books,” Kuroo adds, “I was only checking them out to get your attention, anyway.”

Oikawa gives him a withering look, “Well, I guess it worked.”

Kuroo and Bokuto exchange another look, a semi-victorious one this time, “So, you’ll go out with us?”

“I might,” Oikawa says, reaching for a pen and pad of paper, “Consider it, that is. And I might need some major convincing. And at least ten thousand yen from Tetsu-chan for his late fees,” he ignores Kuroo’s protest, ripping off a bit of paper to write his number on, “Here. Be careful with that, I don’t give it out very often.”

Bokuto is the one to snatch the scrap of paper, grinning eagerly, “We will! We’ll text you soon, Oikawa, you won’t regret it.”

I already do, Oikawa almost says, before clamping his mouth shut because, well. That’s not strictly true.

Having endured enough of the odd glances from his fellow librarians, Oikawa finally shuffles Kuroo and Bokuto away from his desk. Bokuto waves goodbye, and Kuroo winks, asking for Oikawa to promise to text them back. Oikawa just raises a finger to his lips in a shushing motion, and sends them on their way.

(When the text does come, he doesn’t hesitate to respond.)
