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.

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!
yrindor: Head shot of Fuji Shuusuke with his eyes open (Fuji)

Emperor-slave AU

***

Fuji picks up his fair share of scrapes and bruises in Akashi's slave pen and on the trip back to Akashi's palace, but he's spared the worse of the abuse. He's not stupid; he sees the way the guards come crashing down on any sign of disrespect or insubordination, so he keeps his own head down and doesn't give them any cause to notice him. After all, they're of no interest to him; he has his eyes set much higher. Even when the captain of Akashi's personal guard yanks him back by the hair, sneers, and asks how someone as intelligent as he is rumored to be could have done something so stupid as to trade himself for a lowly knight of no special import or talent, he doesn't react. He holds his tongue, takes Aomine's stinging slap across his face, and adds the slight to Yuuta to the growing list of things he will hold Akashi accountable for. The guards and their fists don't scare him; he avoids drawing their attention as much as possible, and lets their words and blows roll off when he can't.

The emperor is another story entirely. Everyone knows about the hypnotic power of his eyes, and Fuji knows that the prospect of having an alleged spymaster in his clutches will be too tempting for Akashi to pass up. He spends every free moment he has shoring up his mind palace against the inevitable assault. It doesn't need to be a complicated palace. He's not trying to hold onto a complex cover story or false identity; he just needs to keep the information he's willing to let Akashi see separate from that he isn't, and he needs to do so smoothly enough that Akashi never has cause to suspect the deception and dig deeper. It's a delicate sort of negotiation, giving up enough that Akashi believes he has the upper hand, but not so much that Fuji blows his own cover. And of course it's all for naught if his mind palace crumbles against the power of the Emperor Eye.

The assault comes without warning, and sooner than Fuji had suspected. Akashi seeks him out one morning and hooks a hand under his chin. He barely has time to wall off his mind before he's looking right into the hypnotic flames of Akashi's eyes. His mental fortress does nothing against the hold Akashi's eyes have over his body, and he falls to his knees at Akashi's command, but his mind palace holds. When Akashi questions him, everything he's left out in the open spills forth like an open book, but everything he's locked away behind doors remains untouched.

When Akashi finally releases him, he's confident that he's given nothing away he didn't intend to, but only time will tell if it will be enough. He has his sights set on a position in Akashi's inner circle, but convincing Akashi to bring him there will be a long and complicated dance of subtle redirection and unspoken nudges. It's a non-traditional form of negotiation, but one where Fuji excels.

Ahhh, I love how you worked Aomine into this! And how you keep stressing how clever Fuji is. He's the poison in the nectar and the details of how Fuji keeps working on being able to resist is so perfect and plausible.
