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!

Ship: Aomine Daiki/Kise Ryouta
Fandom: Kuroko no Basuke
Major Tags: sexual content (?)
Other Tags: hydrophobia (maybe?)
Square: behind the bike shed, chain-link fence digging into my back
Word Count: 554

i feel like ive written sth similar before but i tried to go about it a different way...? o)-<

***

「the sea」

the first time ryouta sees daiki he sees the color of the sea, dazzling and distant and far too much for him to handle. it doesn’t even matter what words had come out of his mouth in that instant—no meaning could be ascribed to the emotions he felt upon seeing ball connect with hand and the electricity of their sneakers against the hardwood floor.

a lighthouse, its everlasting flame upon the shore drawing ryouta in from the stormy waters of his mind.

(i had wanted to come in, so badly)

「bedazzled」

the first time they kiss it had been an accident on the stairs; ryouta had been running late, and he’d stumbled into daiki’s unsuspecting arms taking the steps two by two.

as fate would have it—he’d tasted exactly like ryouta had least expected, salt and the remains of the day’s lunch.

(he’s not a romantic—never has been, even if he takes himself to be. that’s daiki’s job to be horrified, after all, but only after an indefinite amount of time and childish petulance has passed.)

the umpteenth time they kiss it’s behind the touou dormitories, behind the rusted chain-link fences that open up to a whole new world to them of deserted courts and little streams. daiki is country child at heart after all, but neither the inquisitive insects or the sweltering heat matter anymore when ryouta’s pressed up against the metal, daiki’s lips on his after a particularly good match.

“you put on enough chapstick for the both of us,” he would say, and ryouta would be inclined to voice his agreement were it not for the hunger compelling him to pull daiki in, pulling at his hair, biting down until he can’t remember where memory stops and fantasies begin—

「torn」

he won’t think of those times that summer when everything had been lost, oh, oh, when the thunder rolled in and stayed and stayed and—

“i’m glad.”

maybe he’d been wrong choosing this path, but well, ryouta’s never been one to dwell on the past. and he’s not wrong, maybe for the other flares in his life, smaller, dimmer, but this—never this.

even if it were to kill both of them basketball is a song with no end and he would not know any other until the heavens come crashing down between them.

(and if we were lonely, we were lonely together.)

「summer」

when graduation comes they take the train south, to get away for a while because that’s all daiki had ever wanted—or so he grumbled, only after kurokocchi and kagamicchi and the rest of them had happily dropped them off at the station without so much as a “can’t i come along too?”

(daiki would’ve said yes eventually, ryouta knows he would’ve, but secretly he’s glad their friends know better.)

they make it as south as atami and because neither of them are the kind to plan ahead, hop out and never look back as soon as they see the signs pointing to the sea.

later, a photograph from behind a fence: walking hand-in-hand along the shore, daiki waving a half-eaten dango in ryouta’s face, ryouta turning towards him to lick the mitarashi sauce off his lips, the chain-linked circles perfectly framing their smiles and the never-ending blue behind.
