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!

nothing weird happens bc they're middle schoolers ok just to put that out there

***

“What do you mean there can only be one?” Nijimura says, frowning at the charts Momoi had just delivered piping hot into his hands. “This can’t be right—“

“Unfortunately the school doesn’t enough funds to send more than two people, Nijimura-san,” Momoi says, a little apologetic, and a little too pleased in the way Nijimura takes to mean trouble is brewing on the horizon, “So only one other member gets to go to the conference aside from the captain.”

“So you’re coming?”

“Don’t be silly,” Momoi says. “Akashi-kun is the vice captain. Of course he’s the one going.”

“But you’re the manager, shouldn’t you also—“

“I’m actually not available that day, Captain Nijimura,” Momoi replies, flashes him a big smile that’s completely not terrifying or anything coupled with her enunciation of his name. Nijimura could order her to attend, of course, but something tells him that would be a bad idea. “Anyway, if you two go together, that’ll make assigning rooms easier, won’t it? Akashi-kun can give me the details when you’re back.”

(Oh, he’s in for it now.)

-

The conference is in Nagoya, and Shuuzou would’ve gladly taken the shinkansen or even the slow local trains to get there despite the extra time. Anything but flying, and anything but flying with Akashi Seijuurou sitting next to him, looking like he’s completely at home despite their surroundings (Shuuzou’s sure Akashi’s never flown in anything less than first class before outside of school trips.)

Shuuzou, for his part, wants to die. Badly.

He hates flying—Momoi knows that, the whole team knows that, but it doesn’t change the fact that he’s forced to be present. The rumble of the airplane as it lifts off, each little movement that tells Shuuzou oh god, what’s happening now, the rattling of trays and cutlery on the food cart. It’s only an hour, he reasons as he tries to settle in to his aisle seat. At least he could get up and walk around if he feels too jittery.

“Are you okay, Nijimura-san?”

Akashi’s concerned voice brings him back from his jumbled thoughts, and Shuuzou looks at him a little apologetically. This is no way for a senpai to act. “Yeah, no, I—I’m fine. You should get some rest before we touch down.”

“Nijimura-san should do the same.”

He touches Shuuzou’s arm briefly, the kind of touch that says either please take care or something else upon reexamination a few more minutes into Shuuzou’s troubled sleep. So briefly, in fact, that afterwards Shuuzou’s starting to think he might’ve hallucinated the whole thing.

(Why’s he so hung up on that, anyway?)

-

They share a room—of course, this is what Momoi had meant by saving money.

And of course, with Shuuzou’s luck, there’s only one bed.

“Um,” he says, as soon as they enter. Akashi nonchalantly walks over to the bed, pats it, and promptly turns around. “Akashi, do you mind—“

“They’re out of rooms,” Akashi says, back still towards him. “I heard the staff talking on the way up. Do you want me to sleep on the—“

“No,” Shuuzou says, cutting him off immediately. Having Akashi sleep anywhere but the bed would probably result in his untimely death via mafia hit, or whatever security the Akashi family keeps employed. “I’ll…it’s just for one night.”

“Yes,” Akashi replies, looking back with a small smile, the kind that only too late does Shuuzou realize reminds him of Momoi’s. “Just for one night.”

-

“I hate you,” Shuuzou says an hour later, covering his face with his hands.

Akashi puts a hand on his back, and Shuuzou could feel the heat through his clothes. “Do you mean that, Nijimura-san?”

“Of course not, idiot!” He feels Akashi laugh against his back, arms wrapped around his middle. “I just…you could’ve told me.”

“Is Nijimura-san flustered?”

If by flustered you mean am I embarrassed to high hell after accidentally confessing my feelings to my kouhai while in the same bed, Shuuzou thinks, but the only thing that happens is him turning around to flick Akashi on the forehead. “Go to sleep.”

(He’ll be relieved to be alive come morning.)
