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).

Yukimura's tennis is the source of much debate. Everyone knows the rumors of its power, but few have the chance that experience it. Those that do never wish to talk about it, and so no one knows exactly how it works.

Yukimura knows, but he doesn't share. He's always been strong, but his technique doesn't reach its full potential until after he recovers from his illness. It's a technique that only he can use—one that's born out of a sacrifice that he knows no others have made. He is able to seal his opponent's senses because he has had his own stolen. He knows the fear of being unable to move, of struggling to breathe as muscles won't respond. It's a basic, primal fear, one that appeals to the animal brain and bypasses any higher reasoning. He has faced that fear, looked it in the eye, and conquered it, and so he is able to use it as his own.

He is confident going into the final match of Nationals. He's heard of his opponent, the so-called "Super Rookie" of Seigaku.

He's not afraid. If Yanagi's data is correct, and it usually is, the worst injury Ryouma has ever faced was a cut eyelid back in his first official game. Yukimura smiles at that thought; this match will be child's play. He almost wishes he were facing Tezuka; Seigaku's captain still can't match him, but he's made enough of a sacrifice of his own that the match would likely at least be vaguely entertaining.

What Yanagi's data doesn't account for—can't account for—is certain events that unfold in the last minutes before the match. For Ryouma makes a sacrifice even Yukimura has never imagined; he sacrifices his memories for tennis. And in sacrificing his memory—the very core of his identity—he makes a sacrifice greater than any Yukimura has ever made. And so, when Yukimura unleashes the full power of his tennis, Ryouma doesn't crumble as every opponent before him has. Instead, in the void of Yukimura's technique, he smiles as only another who has fought their way back from the void can smile and says "you still have lots more to work on."

People have always called Yukimura the "Child of God," the nickname growing even stronger after his seemingly miraculous recovery for Nationals, but in giving him that name, everyone has overlooked a fundamental truth: for all of the miracles he may have worked, the Child of God himself was only human.

FUCKING SHRIEKS this is such a good take on it!!! I really lik how you worked with the theme of strength from pain and the power of sacrifice and oh man, the whole. Confidence. Hubris. On BOTH their parts! And the last line is so powerful again! You're doing GREAT with these fills!

Heh, I've spent probably far too long thinking about the relation between power and sacrifice in TeniPuri. It definitely comes out most clearly for Yukimura and Ryouma, but I see a lot of it for Fuji as well (and also why Tezuka keeps losing his important matches). Thanks for the prompt that gave me the chance to play with the concept more.
