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.

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.


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!

FILL: Team Kanzaki Miki/Miyahara, B1, G

[personal profile] elucidatedlucy 2017-06-17 04:00 pm (UTC)(link)
Ship: Manami Sangaku & Miyahara
Fandom: Yowamushi Pedal
Major tags: None
Other tags: Drowning
Square: B1
Word count: 514



***

The pool is filled with glass in the sun. Manami hovers at the edge. People jump in. Everyone else jumps in, or slides in, and some are thrown, laughing the whole way. Ears buzz in so much sound. It's surprising.

Manami is covered head to toe in sunscreen, but their skin still sizzles in the heat. Red face and shallow breath, they're smiling with everyone else. It echoes against them. Fills them up till they could suffocate. People play and Manami's knees stay locked in curious observation.

It's a short fall. One of many. Manami trips often. Usually it is falling into confetti decorated carpeting or graying tile floors. But here, glass slices through their nose, settling deep in their lungs. It makes them gasp. Summer fire wilts in the face of chilly welcoming below. There is no crash, and though their arms windmill against the pressure, it is not like falling at all. The scent of chemical cleanliness cuts till there is nothing but burning ease settling behind their eyes. Open, they can see how the world looks beneath. Muted. Calm. And very gently blue. Light breaks through the surface like leaves falling past a window, rippling against people's legs across the way. No one notices. They do not know what they feel till the moments before they pass out.

---

"You never learned how to swim?"

"I tried," they say.

She stares at them in measured silence, seconds counted behind her eyes, like she's waiting for something. They don't know what. In Miyahara's head are a thousand mysteries that they do not question.

"Surely you know how to float."

They laugh. "I sink like a rock in a pool, rep!"

"Then why is everything you own covered in dolphins!"

Manami shrugs.

Pool noodles float around and they hang off one to the other, wrapped around their arms like flying snakes. Miyahara stands tall overhead, never quite sticking her feet in too far. She's responsible. The fact of their relationship is her plays at practice life guarding. It's not a club - not a sport. Swimming is a necessity, she tells them, and they nod enthusiastically. Manami always has. Years do not change that fact.

Miyahara cares too much to not try to be in charge.

---

"We need a doctor!"

"Honey, Sangaku will be fine. You got there in time."

"But I read about this! Water gets in the lungs. If you catch pneumonia, you could die!"

"Sangaku goes to the doctor enough regardless. Don't worry so much."

Ears leak water. Their head is cold, forehead hot, belly roiling between space and time. It's a pitiful whine of agreement they hear, rather than more arguments.

"Rep?"

It comes out as a belch, a cough of chlorine and sharp blue, and Miyahara jumps to attention.

"Sangaku! What were you doing!"

Falling, sinking, flying. They smile. "The pool's really cool, rep."

"You're too sick to swim! I shouldn't have brought you ... I'm so sorry."

She's pale - her hair pressed up to her head under a swim cap, goggles in place of glasses, and to o overwhelmingly prepared for everything.

"No," they say. "Let's come back again sometime."
