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!

KinMaki, now featuring bonus Inui/Kaidou on the side

***

"Dad gave this to me this afternoon," Kinjou said, showing Makishima a hand-knit blanket of varying shades of green. "He and Father made it for me when I was a baby; they thought we could use it now."

Makishima took the blanket and studied it. "It's funny," he said finally, "most of this looks like Kaidou's hand. I still have every sweater he's knit for me, and most of this looks the same. Well, the same less a few decades of practice."

Kinjou laughed. "It is mostly Father's work. He and Dad had planned to work on it together, but as it turns out, Dad's logic doesn't work so well on needlecraft. His first attempt went so badly Father had to cut him out of it. He actually gave me that piece too. See?" He pulled an unholy tangle of yarn out of the bag, and Makishima could only stare and try to fathom what has possibly created the mess.

"Anyway, he tried a few more times after that, and he did get better, but then things got…busy…and by the time he came back, Father had finished the whole thing, and several other projects beside, just to have something to do with his hands. But he took Dad's best attempt and used it as the center."

"Like he was protecting him," Makishima said softly.

"Protecting both of us," Kinjou corrected.

"And he's giving it to us."

Kinjou bit his lip as he nodded. "Yes."

"Just like he gave you his engagement ring," Makishima said thickly, running his fingers over the band.

"He loves you, Yuusuke. They both do, and they're happy for us."

"It's still hard to believe this is real sometimes," Makishima said, one hand drifting down to rest on his stomach. "I keep waiting to wake up and realize I've been dreaming."

"It's not a dream. It's what we're making together."

"I want to make our own."

"What?"

"Our own blanket. Like the one your parents made for you so that the baby knows how much it's loved even if we can't be there all the time."

Kinjou smiled. "We can do that. What colors should we use?"

Makishima shook his head. "Use whatever scrap you have lying around so that there are stories and memories behind all of it. Maybe see if Kaidou has any scraps too, or Inui if anyone let him near yarn again after that."

"I'll see what I can do," Kinjou promised.

They ended up using yarn from even more places than they had first planned, but they both thought that only made the blanket better. Kinjou used the leftover yarn from the socks he had knit for Makishima the first time they had gone skiing together and Makishima's feet had nearly frozen in his boots. When that ran out, he turned to the yarn Kaidou had saved from the first sweater he ever knit for his son. Makishima used yarn from Fukutomi first, left over from the matching scarves he had given to Makishima and Kinjou as a wedding gift. Then he used the scrap from Kaidou from the sweaters he had knit for all for of them the first time they spent New Year's together. They finished the edges of the blanket together with yarn from the teddy bear Toudou had crocheted to congratulate them on Makishima's pregnancy. And then they added tassels to the corners with yarn Inui gave them from an ill-fated adventure in holiday ornaments he had embarked on with Kinjou many years earlier.

They had just put the finishing touches on the blanket when Makishima went into labor.
