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!

Daiki’s simultaneously best and worst investment is probably the espresso machine. He’d bought it for Taiga’s birthday, stuck between something boring and impersonal like a gift card and stuff he’d been pretty sure Taiga already had or clothes he probably wouldn’t wear (he’d just bought him a pair of sneakers, too, shitty timing on his part). So he’d seen the espresso machine, and while Taiga had never expressed any interest in having one, he makes a damn good cup of coffee and he’s always bringing home different stuff for the kitchen (and he uses it all).

So, with a bit of trepidation, Daiki hands it over, all wrapped up, and Taiga loves it.

The problem is that he’s so fucking fussy about it. Daiki will remind him that he’s the one who bought it (as a gift, yes, but it’s supposedly their house and their kitchen and their stuff, and sometimes it’s midday and he’s half-awake and it’s a hell of a lot better than five cups of coffee or running to the convenience store for an energy drink that basically tastes like carbonated lemon pledge). He’ll remind Taiga, and Taiga will still tell him he’s using it all wrong and he’s not doing it right and it’ll come out the wrong way and what the hell does he care if he’s not the one using it? It’s not worth it for Daiki to buy a machine of his own (and there’s not enough space), but it’s the principle of the thing.

“You scratched the filter,” Taiga says, and Daiki has to restrain himself from rolling his eyes.

“So? It’s not like it’s coated in anything, and it’s not like it’s a deep scratch where the grounds are getting caught.”

“It’s scratched,” Taiga says, as if the problem should be self-evident.

“Yeah, so? That’s what happens when you own things. They depreciate in value.”

“I like it when my things look nice,” says Taiga, and Daiki wonders if he’s arguing just to argue, because he’s caught up and wants to be right.

And maybe that’s part of it, but it still means a lot to him. It’s fucking stupid and doesn’t make any sense, and yeah Daiki has to be more careful not to scratch it (even if Taiga can only see the tiny little marks when he holds the damn filter basket up to the light to expect and critique Daiki) but, if it’s harmless, why not do it?

Daiki never likes being the one to give, but even as stubborn as he is, realistically he has to do it sometimes. He has to pick his battles, and even though it’s a half-sunk cost already this might not be the hill he should die on. And if it’s so fucking dumb on both sides, why isn’t Taiga the one giving in?

He buys a new filter basket the next weekend, sticks the old one back int he cupboard with the electric mixer they rarely use.

“I’m sorry I kept scratching your basket,” Daiki says, tossing the new one to Taiga. “Won’t happen with this one.”

“It had better fucking not,” says Taiga.

(It doesn’t.)

... It's just a scratch, Kagami!

Ahaha, I love this little slice of domesticity.
