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.

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!

FILL: TEAM BOKUTO KOUTAROU/KUROO TETSUROU, B1, T

tysm for this lovely prompt, Marsh! I actually wrote more and cut it (the prompts were so cute, I accidentally incorporated loads of them) so I may be back later with a sequel :O

***

Nishinoya had been waiting at the station for nearly half an hour, and he was getting jittery. Asahi was probably going to yell at him for drinking so much coffee, but it couldn't be helped. Nerves rattled his stomach and made him giddy, like the kid he'd been when they first met.

A train pulled in and Nishinoya stood on tiptoe, bouncing excitedly as he tried to spot Asahi's face in the crowd. After a minute, the rush was gone, and there was still no sign of Asahi. Nishinoya's shoulders slumped in defeat.

Then, just as he was about to give up, a pair of strong arms wrapped around him from behind, almost lifting him off his feet he was pulled into a tight hug.

"Noya," a familiar voice rumbled in his ear.

Nishinoya was gently deposited on his feet once more, and he spun around to look at Asahi. His hair hung loose around his shoulders, and he was wearing a bashful smile that made Nishinoya want to kiss him, no matter that they were in public.

"Hi, Asahi," Nishinoya said, beaming up at him for a moment, before grabbing the lapels of Asahi's jacket and standing on tiptoe to kiss him.



Asahi was still blushing as they sat in a nearby cafe, waiting for their drinks.

Nishinoya ordered another coffee, but when Asahi raised his eyebrows, Noya gave him a sheepish smile and amended his offer to decaf.

"I was just nervous," he admitted, fidgeting with the sugar packets.

Asahi frowned at him. "Nervous why?"

Nishinoya groaned. "You know," he mumbled, looking down at the table. "It's the first time I'm seeing you since I moved. I wasn't sure if things would be the same."

"Nishinoya," Asahi sighed, and flashed him a crooked smile. "I'm the same as ever."

Nishinoya squinted at him. "Nope," he said after a few moments. "Not true, you're definitely hotter than before."

To Nishinoya's delight, Asahi turned pink again. "Noya!"

"Maybe it's the hair," Nishinoya pondered. He'd always liked Asahi with his hair down. "Or maybe it's that extra centimetre I grew since I moved out. I'm that much closer to your face now."

To his relief, Asahi burst out laughing, so he couldn't have been too embarrassed. Nishinoya wasn't always good at predicting what would embarrass Asahi.

When he'd stopped laughing, Asahi sat looking at him with a fond smile, until Nishinoya got uncomfortable and started to fidget. "What?"

Asahi shrugged. "It's really good to see you."

Nishinoya's ears got hot. "Just wait until I get you back to my dorm room. You're gonna see a lot more than this."

Asahi huffed, but his smile didn't drop. "I can't wait."
