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.

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!

hmm this one isnt rly horror-y as much as just exploring...a thing...

***

“You don’t believe me,” Tatsuya says. It’s not a question—Shuuzou looks up from his case file and frowns. “You don’t believe I can see the future.”

“Nobody can do that,” Shuuzou tells him. To his credit, Tatsuya does not seem to get upset when he says this, not like the first time this happened. Instead, he gestures at a young man accompanied by a nurse in the corridor. “What?”

Tatsuya smiles, beautiful, terrifying. “He’s going to die tomorrow.”

-

“Bullshit,” Shuuzou whispers.

Coincidences happen. After several years at this job, it’s become easier to distinguish that from what’s physically evident, but it does not make his job easier. He watches the clean-up crew mop up the blood pooling into the corridor, feeling a wave of nausea coming up the back of his throat.

It had been an accident. Something about the full-body scanner malfunctioning—Shuuzou doesn’t stay to hear the rest.

He finds Tatsuya in his tenth floor room, reading a book. “Well?”

“Did you know,” Shuuzou says, walking up to him and yanking the book out of his hands, “Messing with hospital machinery is illegal?”

“I haven’t been out of the room since yesterday,” Tatsuya replies, his tone even. Still, there is something brittle in his voice as he continues. “You can check the nurse’s records, they’re right here.”

“I don’t care about the records.”

“Is that how a doctor should act?”

“You…”

“If you care so much about this,” Tatsuya says, dropping his voice. Shuuzou raises a hand, reaching for the records, but stops. “Please help me then, Doctor.”

-

The patient had been given an eye cornea transplant for his left eye a week ago. That was all Shuuzou had been told before his father had transferred Tatsuya to him from the general hospital. The sight in that eye has been restored, but there have been some other…problems.

Now Tatsuya is sitting next to him on the bullet train, half-dozing, his head on Shuuzou’s shoulder.

He won’t say it’s not a pleasant feeling, the warmth of skin on skin. Tatsuya is definitely the kind of person who can and will get away with anything simply by virtue of his looks. Shuuzou turns a little, trying to get a better look—the locks of dark hair that always obscure his left eye have shifted in sleep, exposing to Shuuzou the remnants of scarring that remain from the surgery.

It looks no different when closed—but when the food trolley rolls past and Tatsuya stirs, Shuuzou catches a glint of gold in his eye before he leans away. “Sorry.”

“…It’s fine.” Shuuzou sighs, fiddling with his seatbelt. The image burrows itself into his mind, refusing to let go—so much so that he turns to Tatsuya again. “Your eye. It’s…a different color, I wasn’t expecting that.”

“Oh.” Tatsuya brushes his hair back into place, and they sit in silence for a moment. “Do you like it?”

“It’s pretty,” Shuuzou replies without thinking. Tatsuya laughs softly, and he feels his face color. “Stop laughing!”

“You’re cute when you blush,” Tatsuya says, reaching over to flick Shuuzou’s own bangs out of his eyes. His fingers are warm, too—a little surprising. “It’s pretty, huh?”

Don’t flirt with your patients. Shuuzou wills himself to look away, beyond Tatsuya, to the scenery rapidly falling away from them outside. It’s nearing dusk, and they’re still half an hour away from Kyoto. “It’s pretty, but we’ve also gotta do something about it, don’t we?”

“Of course.” Tatsuya smiles, and Shuuzou can tell it’s back, the tension in his voice. They say nothing more until the train comes to a stop, and they follow the stream of people down to the platform. If they hurry, Shuuzou thinks as he looks at his phone, they might be able to make it to the hospital in time.

Then he catches Tatsuya looking back as he leaves, towards the departure platform. “Hey, we should get going. You want to meet this Akashi guy, don’t you?”

“Wait.”

He follows Tatsuya’s gaze to a woman standing near a pillar, intent on her phone. She doesn’t seem to notice either of them, but then again, they are standing too far away. “Do you know her?”

“No,” Tatsuya says. “But—“

“Then I don’t want to hear it.” Shuuzou grabs his hand, yanking him along—Tatsuya does not resist, though Shuuzou knows he could. Quickly they are swallowed up in the crowd again, and this time, Shuuzou walks fast enough and loud enough that whatever happens behind him next is silenced by the sound of his own pounding heart.
