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

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).

Emperor-slave AU

***

Fuji has been a slave in Akashi's palace for a month when Akashi summons him and orders him to sit before Haizaki, the court's piercer. It's the first Fuji is hearing of it, but clearly Akashi has thought it through since he recites a list of what he wants done.

There's an unwritten language encoded in the piercings of the court, and Fuji is learning to read them. The first two lobe piercings in each ear carry no special significance and are common among many in the palace. The number of rings climbing the outer cartilage of the ear is a rough indicator of rank and closeness to the emperor, though there are those who choose them purely for aesthetic reasons as well. Nose and lip rings are less common among the soldiers, but frequently worn by others. The same holds true for fine chains draped between piercings, but they catch too easily on things and so are worn almost exclusively by those slaves who do little or no manual labor.

Akashi takes great pride in his eyes, but also in the fact that they are a power unique to him. He doesn't take kindly to others drawing attention to their own eyes. An eyebrow ring is understood to be an unstated challenge to his authority, so almost no one in the court even dares consider one. The notable exception is Aomine, the head of Akashi's personal guard, who has the strength and conviction to back up his statement.

Piercings on the rest of the body are usually hidden by clothing and thus less common, except among the pleasure slaves who frequently have cause to show off their skin. The one universally understood rule though is that genital piercings are done only at Akashi's orders. It's a privilege he reserves for the few in his innermost circle, a gift that shows the favor he has for them, and the pain that they willingly endure for him.

Akashi orders Haizaku to marks two spots on each of Fuji's earlobes, then another midway up the shell of one ear, and one on the inner cartilage of the other. Another dot marks a ring for his nose, and two more mark where studs will sit just below his collarbones.

Once Akashi has approved the final placement of the marks, Haizaki picks up his needles. Fuji tries to hide the way his stomach drops out when the first needle punches through his ear. He focuses on his breathing and tries to ignore everything else, but not so much that he fails to react at all. When the nose piercing makes his eyes water, he uses that to his advantage as well.

After all, he's seen the sort of people Akashi chooses to surround himself with. The emperor has no patience for blind followers; his need to assert control is only satisfied when he can take it by force, or when it's freely given with a sacrifice. Haiaki's needles don't hurt that much, but Fuji acts as if they do. He's shaking slightly from adrenaline by the time Haizaki finishes, and the picture he presents is of one who is nearly at his limit, but determined to endure anyway.

As Haizaki packs away his tools, Akashi steps closer and rests a hand on Fuji's hand. "Beautiful," he says, "and this is only the beginning. Continue to serve me well, and I will see that you are rewarded."

"Thank you, Majesty," Fuji says. Internally, he smiles at just how easy it is to play right into Akashi's hands.

THE DETAILS OF THE MEANINGS OF TH PIERCINGS ARE SO GOOD. I really like the way you're fleshing out his court and their social signifiers, it's such a great way to build up the world they're in.

Fuji pretending it hurts more than it does is so much YES. Seriuosly flawless characterization. I just. Love it. So very uch. XD

his need to assert control is only satisfied when he can take it by force, or when it's freely given with a sacrifice

Also that line made me suck in a breath because wow. Talk about summarizing Akashi perfectly in one line.
