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).

Have a question? Check The FAQ first. If you still need help, feel free to contact the mods. Happy fanworking!

this went in a completely different direction from what i was going for oH WELL

***

Taiga is already sweating the moment he sees the neon signage rise out of nowhere, past the pizzeria and hair salon and who knows what else. He doesn’t come to this part of town often; it’s Tatsuya who frequents this area, and mostly for work.

He tries to ignore the stares he’s probably getting (that probably aren’t even directed his way; it’s not that terribly seedy, though the signs are clear enough for Taiga to tell where one part of town ends and the other begins.) A few seconds of deliberation in front of the drugstore for a bite to eat ends with a very infrequent interruption of his mind going you sure you want to go in with a full stomach?

Taiga’s not even sure what to expect.

When he gets there the bouncer sizes him up for what seems like an eternity before he grunts something unintelligible and lets Taiga inside. He’s never been to a strip club before, but the music and neon lights and immediate smell of alcohol are within expectations. Patrons mill about on the ground floor amidst the dim lights, and they seem almost—normal?

You’re not in a movie, okay? Get a grip on yourself

It’s not that Taiga disapproves of how Tatsuya wants to work his way through college; this is a good-paying job, and Tatsuya works hard, if the late nights and dark circles tell him anything. He’s just a little worried.

(Okay, a lot worried. What if he gets hurt? Are the management assholes? He never talks about work much, and though it’s only on the weekends…)

There’s a cheer to the right of him, drawing his attention to the brightly-lit stage.

Oh.

The ring, with multicolored light reflecting off its surface as Tatsuya moves, is what gives him away. Taiga feels his mouth dry up as he approaches the crowd, just as mesmerized as the rest of them. He’s seen Tatsuya up close before, countless times in the bedroom, but something is different about the way he moves here—still clothed, but just barely. The sultry smile and flick of his hair, the thin silver bracelets around his ankles shimmering beneath disco lights, how he arcs his back and rolls his hips.

There’s no question of who’s the most popular dancer here, judging by the amount of people quickly filling in the spaces next to Taiga, some even trying to elbow him out of the way. Maybe it would be a fairer comparison of he would take even a brief glance at the other stages, but even that, Taiga finds out soon enough, is proving difficult.

When Tatsuya swings a well-toned leg over the pole, turning around to assess the crowd, Taiga knows he’s a goner.

-

“I know I’m not supposed to be here” is the first thing that comes out of Taiga’s mouth, preemptively, like he’s a child who knows he’s done something terribly wrong. Tatsuya is closing the door, and Taiga has no idea what he’s thinking right now apart from the slight surprise on his face when he’d first seen Taiga standing there below. “I mean, they don’t like it when—family, boyfriends, come here, right…? Are you gonna get in trouble? Because—”

“Taiga,” Tatsuya says, turning around, the dim lights of the VIP room staining everything an off shade of pink. Taiga stares at his ankles; he can kind of make out what it’s supposed to be, the graceful form of a Japanese dragon wound around Tatsuya’s skin. He swallows. “I told them you’re a paying customer.”

“Oh.” Then, “Um, well.”

“If you’re trying to stage an intervention, you’re doing a pretty bad job,” Tatsuya says lightly, walking towards him in his too-tight leather pants, and oh, Taiga’s face feels like it’s suddenly turned seventeen different shades of red. And even in this shitty lighting Tatsuya can most definitely see it.

If this is what I’m paying for, Taiga thinks as he looks up in both awe and horror from where he’s seating, at the smirk slowly starting to form on Tatsuya’s lips and the way his body sways, the little jangle of metal around his ankles as he comes to rest on Taiga’s lap. Big. Fucking. Mistake.
