Bonus Round 2: Tic-Tac-Toe



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.


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.

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!

This is always a fun pairing to write!

***

Atobe's insight was legendary. It first made a name for him on the tennis courts, but that was only the beginning. He quickly rose through the ranks of the business world with one shrewd decision after another putting his name on everyone's radar. The business journals all declared him the new superpower to watch, and the management at rival companies all feared the day they drew the short straw and had to face him in negotiations.

By the time he became the youngest board member in the history of his company, everyone had heard of him, and more importantly, had heard of his insight. They said that when one was in a meeting with him, he would look up with his piercing blue eyes, and then it would be over. He could see through any attempt at dissembling, exposing even the deepest of secrets and filing them away to use for his own ends at a later point.

Less than a month after Atobe moved into his new corner office, his vision began to fail. It was subtle at first, a slight haze that hung over the pages of his notes and blurred the letters on his computer screen. He purchased glasses in the latest style and wrote them off as a concession to fashion and to too many late nights spent with his laptop. But his glasses could only slow the inevitable.

It wasn't hard to hide his condition from his rivals. His insight was still stronger than theirs, even as shaky around the edges as it was, and his rivals both feared and admired him, two emotions that were easy to steer in the directions he wanted.

No, the biggest threat to his position wasn't from any outside company; it was from the CFO who sat in the office adjacent to his. Like Atobe, Oshitari Yuushi had risen quickly through the company hierarchy, and it was no secret that he had his eye on a board position and corner office of his own. He didn't have Atobe's insight, but he was cunning nonetheless and had an arrogance and drive that matched Atobe's own. And whatever he lacked in insight, he made up for with an unshakable poker face.

Oshitari's carefully schooled expressions were unreadable even to Atobe, but not even Oshitari could keep every gesture and twitch under that degree of control. After years of their game, Atobe had learned to read Oshitari's tells like an open book—the way Oshitari's eyes flicked to the corner as he thought and darted back to Atobe once he had made his decision, even if his words continued to vacillate. The way his fingers tightened ever-so-slightly on his pen when he felt cornered, even if he put on a mask of nonchalance.

They were all tells Atobe relied on to continue to hold his position of dominance, and he was rapidly losing his ability to discern any of them. He had never said anything publicly, but he knew that Oshitari had known even before the day Atobe's insight faltered during one of their skirmishes, and he caught Oshitari watching carefully.

He also knew that Oshitari knew that their battle was far from over. He was not going to give up that easily.

I'm glad you liked it! I love the battle of wits that takes place pretty much whenever Atobe and Yuushi face off.
