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!

i just want domestic mayuakas with cats in every possible universe

“Why don’t you let me have the remote,” Akashi says, in a way that Mayuzumi takes to mean trouble if he doesn’t hand it over right away. “I think we’ve gotten enough out of this.”

“What, you mean you aren’t interested in—“

“Chihiro,” Akashi says, a warning in each syllable. “Remote.”

Mayuzumi sighs and throws it to him. It’s not even that he’s absorbed in the game show; of course Akashi wouldn’t be interested in anything as bougie as this. But over the years Mayuzumi has come to the conclusion that it’s better to do what Akashi wants when he uses that tone of voice. “Whatever you wish, young master.”

He doesn’t get to see whether or not the host has to take off his pants in front of the audience in the end, but that’s okay. Akashi already has his head on Mayuzumi’s shoulder, a familiar weight made all the more better with the simple fact that today is a Saturday and they have absolutely nothing to do.

(Well, not absolutely nothing. Akashi, ever the workaholic, had still spent most of the morning away at some emergency call, and it’s been raining so hard the entire day they’ve had to cancel most of their plans. But.)

Just as Akashi manages to move forward and press his lips to Mayuzumi’s neck, they both hear an inquisitive meow behind them.

If Mayuzumi would look down, he would probably see the closest Akashi has ever gotten to having flames shoot out of his eyes; but he doesn’t, because he’s seen it about five hundred times before. Besides, it’s always amounted to nothing—the only time he’s ever been seen compromising on something. “Let her up.”

“Chihiro.”

“Come off it, I know you like her.”

Akashi doesn’t answer him (it’s not a victory for Mayuzumi yet, or at least Akashi won’t give it to him all that easily), but only pulls the blankets up a bit more, settling into position. Mayuzumi feels a nudge on his thigh. “She’ll come up when she wants to.”

Kaguya-tan (the cat, not Mayuzumi’s body pillow) paws at their sofa, but thankfully Mayuzumi had already clipped her nails. One more destroyed piece of furniture and Akashi’s unspoken threats might just come true. Mayuzumi reaches over and moves a strand of hair out of his face. “Just like you, you mean.”

“Are you comparing me to a cat?”

But Akashi doesn’t move from where he is, and Mayuzumi doesn’t feel impending doom on the back of his neck. It’s not something Mayuzumi would’ve cared to say out loud even two years ago, so perhaps they’re getting somewhere. “I’m comparing the cat to you.”

Akashi’s probably rolling his eyes—internally, that is; Mayuzumi tries to imagine it, and finds that he’d really rather never see such an expression on Akashi’s face. But he doesn’t object when Mayuzumi holds him closer, pressing a kiss to his forehead, and they sit there until the rain has stopped pattering on the rooftops outside.
