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)

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!

Click. I just captured the exact moment you realized you had failed. I guess we all got something out of this. After zero consideration, I'm happy to say, "hard pass." Forget your ex, have meaningless sex. It rhymes because it's true.
I hate the ocean. That's where that stuck up bitch Rose let Leo die. There was plenty of room on that door. You think you can just bully people, but you can't. It's not okay. I'm the bully around here. Ask anyone. I have already received your praise. I'm clearly fishing in another pond right now.
All men are at least 30% attracted to me. My mother cried the day I was born, because she knew she would never be better than me. No hard feelings, but I hate you. Not joking. Bye. He let me choose the music on the way over here, which leads me to believe he's given up on life.

i hope u don't mind and indulge with me one of my fave tropes


Takahiro’s still half-asleep when he shuffles into the bathroom, turns the faucets on, splashes water on his face. He has class today, and then work. Today is Matsukawa’s short day, though, so maybe he can convince him to grab dinner outside, maybe that little noodle shop near Matsukawa’s place. It’s been a while since they’ve had time to eat out.

Already contemplating which meal he wants to order, Takahiro is reaching for his toothbrush when he pauses. There are two toothbrushes in his cup. He doesn’t really use the cup since it’s much faster for him to just cup his hands under the tap, so the bright blue plastic cup has been turned into a toothbrush holder. His toothbrush is obnoxiously pink. It was an accident, from way back when he just moved out, but then it sort of stuck, and now Takahiro only ever buys pink toothbrushes.

The other toothbrush is green. It’s the same brand as his, plastic and translucent, easy to grip, easy to use. It’s not his.

It’s Matsukawa’s.

Takahiro isn’t sure when Matsukawa’s toothbrush started appearing in his toothbrush holder-cup or when it started staying, but it’s become a familiar sight now. Two toothbrushes, sharing the same space. It’s not that strange; they’ve shared space like this before, back in high school when they were forced to be in close quarters with a bunch of sweaty teen boys, or when they live out of the same bag to save space when visiting friends out of town. But there’s something about this image of these two toothbrushes, leaning against each other, colours clashing, right here on his bathroom sink, that makes Takahiro pause.

He leans against the counter and laughs weakly. He’s never had a problem with this arrangement before, but this morning, it’s just hitting him hard. He thinks about the queen-sized warm bed he just vacated, too big for himself. He thinks about the extra pairs of shoes lined up at his front door. He thinks about the packets of instant coffee invading his kitchen cabinet even though he can’t stand the taste of it. He thinks about the two clothes drawers he cleared out last month.

Something warm and almost too much is bubbling in his chest. Takahiro covers his face with shaky hands, and breathes.

There’s a knock on the half-open door. “Taka? What are you doing in there, you bathroom hog?”

Matsukawa stands there, bare-chested and sleepy-eyed. His black curls are sticking up on one side where he was sleeping on it. He looks like the boy Takahiro has known since he was fifteen, and he looks like the man Takahiro can no longer imagine his life without. The warmth in Takahiro’s chest grows, until it’s almost painful.

“Issei,” he says, and he watches as Matsukawa’s eyebrows lift up, “Issei. Move in with me.”

Matsukawa stares at him. Takahiro stares back. His hands are trembling by his sides.

“Takahiro,” Matsukawa says, “I practically already have.”

And then there’s that slow, soft smile he’s so in love with, and Takahiro can only beam back.

fool for love and fool on fire

there's no sin in this: getting dressed to kill, laughing down the sun like a jackal will
with his eyes ablaze and his lips apart he's gonna fill his cup with the love in your heart and drink it up til the morning starts
if you'll forgive me my ferocity, i won't forget your sweetness

I really really love Mizuki/Fuji. There aren't that many of us that ship them so I was super happy to see this! These prompts are also great I wish I could have filled them ALL :D


In the end, Mizuki couldn’t make it in the pro sports world so he decides to do the next best thing…join the sports musical world! Here, Mizuki has the opportunity to put his singing talents and beauty to good use, and he also gets his very first taste of fame.

It starts with the letters. After each performance the show manager distributes a big box of fan mail to the cast. Mizuki always gets at least one. (Although, most of the time it’s hate mail, but he never lets anyone know that). The cast always reads their letters together in the breakroom (because a good chunk of the cast gets hundreds upon hundreds of letters and they need to utilize whatever free time they have). Mizuki just reads his same letter from his singular fan over and over again, shuffling the pages every once and awhile, trying to make it look as if he has more than one fan. (It doesn’t work).

Watching his fellow cast answering their fan mail, Mizuki can’t help but feel jealous. After work, he googles his name in vain, trying to find one or two people fawning over the great Mizuki Hajime.

This is when he discovers the blogs. Blogs dedicated to posting photos of each sports musical performance and writing little blurbs on what they liked and didn’t like. For example, many people, apparently, like the previous actor who played Kirihara better than Mizuki. Whatever. Besides the general sports musical blogs, a good number of blogs are focused on one particular actor. Mizuki, however, doesn’t have a whole lot of blogs dedicated to him. (All the ones which do exist, seem to strangely disappear a day or two after their creation.

After meticulously google searching, Mizuki finally finds a Mizuki-centric blog. While a lot of the photos are from performances, some are from his personal life which makes him slightly uncomfortable. Especially the ones of him in the bath, because the only way someone could have access to those is if they were following him around. But, for the most part, he doesn’t mind. The photos are exquisite, editing out any imperfections to make him look literally flawless. That day his hair was a bit off center during Wimblemyu? Gone. He looks better than ever.

Mizuki saves some of the photos on his hard drive, printing his favorite ones out to put with his fan mail. It makes Mizuki so happy to find a blog dedicated to him and him only that decides to tell the blogger himself.

Nice blog, he comments.

To his surprise the blogger replies almost immediately. Thank you! I really like Mizuki!

He’s pretty good at singing, right? Mizuki replies. Not that he’s fishing for compliments or anything.

Yes, and he’s cute!

Then blogger quickly adds, Ah, but he would never like someone like me.

Honestly it’s probably true. Mizuki isn’t fond of many people, but he can’t tell that to his only fan.

You never know.

A couple minutes pass with the blogger not saying anything, so Mizuki logs off.

In a way Mizuki empathizes with the blogger. Even if the blogger is just a common fan, he understands what they’re going through. The feeling that the person you like will never give you the time of day, or even remember your name.

Mizuki sighs, looking through his accordion file filled with Fuji Syusuke themed photos, drawings, and sonnets. They’re all organized precisely by year dating all the way back to 2008. Even though they’ve known each other since middle school, Fuji still pretends not to know who he is. At least, Mizuki thinks it’s just pretending. Whenever he sees Fuji, Mizuki tries to play it off like he doesn’t really care. Maybe it’s become a sort of habit, or maybe it’s just too painful to realize his crush can’t even bother to remember him.

Since Fuji became an actual pro tennis player, it’s become almost impossible to get close to him. Long past are the days of secretly taking Fuji’s photos outside the tennis courts. Now, he would probably have to sign some sort of legal document. Unlike Mizuki, Fuji has thousands of fans blogging about him, sending him mail, and vying for his affection. Now if Mizuki wants a picture he either has to draw one himself or beg Yuuta for one in exchange for baked goods.


Unable to stop thinking about the blogger and their similar situations, Mizuki gets into the habit of checking the blog fairly regularly.

Then the blog goes two whole weeks without updating and Mizuki starts to feel what can’t be anything other than withdrawal symptoms. Has his one and only fan left him for another?

Please update! He comments under the blog’s most recent post.

A couple hours later he gets a response:

I got tickets to Wimblemyu! I’m going to be taking some pictures, and I’ll post my edits next week.

Maybe you’ll run into Mizuki? It’s unlikely they’ll run into each other. Hundreds of people would be attending the performance.

Wouldn’t that be great? I’m wearing bright yellow so hopefully he spots me!


Mizuki trips over his only line on stage, when he spots Fuji Syusuke with a camera strapped around his neck, and wearing a sunshine yellow jacket.

It can’t be!

The cast members are discouraged from mingling with the audience after the show, and are supposed to wait until some formal signing events to speak with their fans. But, Mizuki is burning with half a million questions for Fuji and knows this might be his only opportunity to ask.

Mizuki sneaks out of the dressing rooms and corners Fuji right after the performance. It isn’t difficult to find him in that yellow coat.

“Fuji Syusuke!”

Fuji turns around. “Who are you?” He blinks. “A fan? Would you like an autograph?”

Mizuki’s stomach sinks. He’d gotten his hopes up that Fuji was the blogger.

“It’s Mizuki. Yuuta’s tennis manager in middle school? I also played Kirihara in tonight’s show.”

He waits for Fuji to give some type of response but it never comes.

“So Fuji, what are you doing here?”

“I like musicals,” Fuji answers, “And being a professional tennis player Wimblemyu seemed right up my alley.”

“Did you take any pictures of me?” Mizuki asks, a seed of hope still nesting in his heart.

“Why would I?”

Mizuki wants to explain to Fuji about the blog and about how the blogger told him they’d be wearing bright yellow. He decides it would be easier to show him rather than fumble around for the right words, but when he takes out his phone and tries to go to the bookmarked website, he discovers the link’s been taken down!

“How could this happen? My only blog!”

“Someone made a blog about you? Are you sure you’re not imagining things?”

Mizuki scowls, clenching his hand around Fuji’s wrist. “I am not!”

Mizuki remembers he has a few print outs of his favorite blog photos filed together with the fan mail he received earlier this month.

“Come back to my apartment,” He says, hand still wrapped around Fuji’s wrist. He isn’t thinking about the possible implications behind those words, only about proving to Fuji Syusuke that he’s Right.


It’s only once they’ve arrived at his apartment, that it dawns on him just exactly what he’s done. He’s invited Fuji Syusuke, the gorgeous Fuji Syusuke, over to his apartment. And now Fuji is waiting for him to find proof of a blog that may or may not exist, sitting on his bed, the bed Mizuki often fantasizes in immaculate detail about all the things they might do...

Mizuki takes out the file containing his fan mail and photo edits and hands it to Fuji. Or--at least he thinks it’s that file. But, in his nervous haze he must have gotten it mixed up with his other file, the one where he keeps all of his photos, sonnets, and fantasy drawings of Fuji. Before he can take it back Fuji’s already looking through it.

“Is this your weird way of saying you have a crush on me?”

“I don’t!” Mizuki says a little too quickly, ears burning. He looks at the ceiling, then at the floor, inspecting the grout carefully. He wonders if Fuji can see through him, or if Fuji already knew and this whole thing was an elaborate ruse to ‘catch’ him.

“Oh?” Fuji hums, “To be honest I’m a little disappointed.”


“I like you.” Fuji states. “You’re cute when you’re flustered. Although, I will admit, I might take things too far sometimes.”

“Anyway, I was hoping we could try out something like this.” Fuji holds up one of Mizuki’s fantasy drawings. One where they’re wearing nearly nothing and doing some of the activities Mizuki imagined up on his bed. “Ah, but since you don’t feel the same way I’ll just be on my way.”

Just as Fuji’s getting up to leave Mizuki calls after him, “Wait. I...would like to try that.” It comes out in a whisper. He hadn’t meant for anyone to actually see those drawings.

“What? I can’t hear you.” Fuji smirks.

“I said I would like to try that!” Mizuki snaps, pressing Fuji up against his bedpost.

He hears the click of a camera behind him, but is too focused on making his dreams come true to really think much of it at the time.


In the morning Mizuki finds the blog is back online and there’s a whole host of photos from last night. Fuji is conveniently edited out of all of them, but Mizuki knows he’s there. The photos are so artistically done you can’t really tell what they were doing or even that Mizuki isn’t wearing clothes. It’s like their little secret. Mizuki prints his favorites out to put with his collection.

Nice photos, he comments.

Three weeks before the end of the world, Ushijima is watering the plants on his balcony as the television rages on in the background. This is not a habit of his—it is not characteristic of him to be wasteful of anything, much less of electricity, and evening is not the best time for irrigation—but a certain priority had to take precedence that night. That is, his peace of mind, which is frequently disrupted by his next-door neighbors. They are a couple, they are married, and they are childless, which, according to Ushijima's unintentional eavesdropping, is a sore spot in their arguments. Ushijima wouldn't even have a television set if it didn't come with the apartment, preferring to read or browse online, but he is grateful for it these days, the way he can simply turn up the volume when the shouting starts and tune them out, concentrating very hard on the well-being of his plants.

It is during one of these sessions that the news breaks, interrupting the drama that had been broadcasting. There is an asteroid headed for Earth, says the news anchor, and the mission to stop its trajectory has failed. In three weeks, she continues, it will make impact and destroy all life on the planet.

Ushijima glances up from his plants, frowning at that. His neighbors don't seem to have heard yet, if the yelling is any indication. He has just finished dinner, and if he were to follow routine, he would be on his way to bed in preparation for the work day. He wonders if there would even be work to attend tomorrow.

He sets down his watering can and heads to the bathroom to brush his teeth, as he always does before he goes to sleep. There is no use wondering; he will find out in due time.


Two weeks and six days before the end of the world, it turns like it always does, and for Ushijima, the the hours unfold like they always do. He goes in to work and finds that most of his department are not present. Later, he will be told that a fraction of them had killed themselves, while the others have disappeared from the city, presumably to go home to their families. He stumbles upon one of those who stayed snorting cocaine in the men's bathroom, and leaves him to it.

When he returns to his apartment, after clocking in all the hours required of him, his neighbors are no longer fighting. If the creaking bed noises are any indication, they are having vigorous sex. Perhaps it is an act of forgiveness, proof that they do still love each other after all, or perhaps it is celebratory, thanking the gods for not giving them a child to mourn.

Ushijima has watered his plants this morning, so he does not go to the balcony today. He doesn't turn on the television; he does not need reminding that the world is ending. He goes to bed earlier than usual instead.


Two weeks and five days before the end of the world, it is a Saturday, so even Ushijima has no excuse to go to work. Even the television cannot drown out his neighbors' groans and moans, so excavates himself from his apartment to spend the day outside.

It seems a mistake immediately: the streets are in chaos, filled with packed bags and crying children, their parents set on the idea that there is such a thing as running far away enough from an asteroid. Some shops have been looted, and others are on fire. Ushijima contemplates driving away to a farm and spending his last days somewhere quiet, but the drive there in this environment will be troublesome.

He detours into a nearby ramen shop instead, one of those still standing, and orders their biggest bowl, since he will be here a while. After he gives his order, he turns and sees the last person he expects to see, alone as well during the apocalypse.

"Aren't you going to say hello, Ushiwaka-chan?" says Oikawa Tooru, fresh out of Ushijima's youth, his brown curls and doe brown eyes near untouched by age. Ushijima has not seen him in years.

"What are you doing here?" asks Ushijima, because what else was he supposed to say?

Oikawa hums noncommittally, making a vague motion with his chopsticks. "I was in the area, and I remembered I love this shop, and here I am. And you? Any reason you're wallowing alone, so close to the apocalypse?"

"You're alone too," says Ushijima. It's only the truth, and he has always been blunt, but something tells him he should not have said it, as if it might cause Oikawa to fling the remnants of his ramen at Ushijima's head and storm out of the shop, fuming. But Oikawa only hums again, and finishes chewing his noodles before he speaks.

"So you noticed. Everyone's with their misses and their kids, you know? I can't intrude on Iwa-chan, not right now, even if he'll have me. I'd spoil Hajime Jr. rotten, but he deserves to be spending time with his daddy and mommy, not Uncle Tooru." If that is regret in Oikawa's voice, it doesn't linger long enough for Ushijima to find out. "Let me guess. You're in the same lonely boat."

Ushijima nods, even though he does not feel lonely. Or at least he hadn't, until Oikawa reappeared in his life looking like he always does, musing on what-could-have-beens.

His ramen arrives. He murmurs a quiet itadakimasu to himself and begins to eat, feeling Oikawa's gaze on him as he drinks some of the broth. He can hear Oikawa's smile, even without turning his head to look.

"What a sad pair we are, Ushiwaka-chan."

Ushijima, with warm soup in his belly and Oikawa beside him, would not necessarily agree.

Getting the four of them to share space is difficult enough on a good day, and it's even worse when the weather is bad. Aomine is only ever too lazy to move, or too restless to stay inside, and he's out in the rain now, challenging Kagami to another one-on-one. There's a street ball court close enough that they can see it from one of the windows in Kagami's apartment and Himuro stands there, watching them chase each other through the rain as it gets heavier.

"They're going to get sick," he mutters, mostly to himself.

Murasakibara, already wrapped in a thick blanket and sitting on the couch, huffs quietly. "That's their own fault. There's no point in worrying about them when you know that they're not going to take care of themselves anyway."

Himuro sighs. "I'm going to worry. Especially because I'm going to be the one taking care of them when they get sick anyway."

"That's because you care too much about everything," Murasakibara mutters, pulling one of his arms out from under his blanket and reaching for HImuro. "Just come here."

Himuro smiles, stepping away from the window and letting Murasakibara pull him close, until he's sitting on the couch as well, part of the blanket wrapped around him, already warm from body heat. He shuts his eyes, leaning back against Murasakibara, and lets himself relax.

Which is when lightning flashes across the sky, soon followed by a loud crack of thunder. Himuro sighs, making to get up again, but Murasakibara holds him down.

"Atsushi," he says, pulling against Murasakibara's grip. "They're going to keep playing in the storm unless someone calls them inside."

"They're big enough to take care of themselves," Murasakibara replies, as if he doesn't let Himuro take care of him whenever possible.

Himuro is about to protest, when the door opens, and both Aomine and Kagami walk inside, dripping wet from the rain.

"Towels," Himuro sighs. "Both of you. Go."

Aomine and Kagami look at each other, lips curling into matching grins that say they were doing more than just playing basketball in the rain. Himuro rolls his eyes fondly, watching as they both head towards the bathroom to dry off and change.

"Give me a moment," Himuro murmurs, turning around and pressing a kiss to Murasakibara's lips.

"No." Murasakibara holds on tight. "I'm comfortable with you right here, you know."

"I'm making hot chocolate to help warm them up," Himuro replies. "I'm making it for all of us."

Murasakibara holds on for a moment longer, before he finally relents. "I want extra chocolate in mine. And marshmallows."

Himuro smiles and kisses him again. "Of course, Atsushi."
