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 with even more bonus InuKai on the side

"Kinjou," Makishima called urgently from the bathroom.

"Yes?" Kinjou replied.

"I think my water just broke."

Kinjou stopped what he was doing, setting down his knife on the cutting board of half-prepared vegetables. "Are you sure?"

"Pretty sure, Kinjou. Come on."

"I'll…call Dad," Kinjou said, trying to pull up his mental list of what he was supposed to be doing. They had talked through it many times before, but he hadn't expected the anticipation and nerves to hit quite as hard as they were, even though Kaidou had warned him they would.

"You can call him on the way," Makishima grunted. "I think I've been having contractions since this morning; I thought I was just having a bad reaction to Inui's cooking."

"You what!? No, sorry, just nerves. Okay. I'll get the car." Kinjou had to force himself to slow down and take the extra second to make sure he was doing everything properly as he pulled his car around to the front of their apartment and helped Makishima inside. He set the car's navigation system to bring them to the hospital on autopilot before he called his parents.

"They're going to meet us there," he told Makishima when he hung up.

"I hope they hurry," Makishima said. "I'm not sure how long the baby's going to wait."

"It always takes longer than it feels like it will," Kinjou said. "Or at least that's what Father told me."

"No offense to Kaidou, but He's. Not. The. One. With. A. Kid. Inside. Him," Makishima hissed.

Kinjou held up his hands in acknowledgment. "Just a little longer. We'll be there in five minutes."

They made it to the hospital without incident, and Inui and Kaidou joined them just as Makishima was getting settled in a room.

"I'm glad you could come," Makishima said. "I wanted you to—" The rest of his sentence was cut off as he squeezed Kinjou's hand through another contraction.

"Are you still sure about the no drugs?" Kinjou asked.

Makishima nodded. "Too many mods along the nerves. There's too high a risk of an unpredictable reaction from them if you block the nerves. They can either bypass the block entirely or start firing off signals at random, neither of which are good."

"You're sure?" Kinjou said, wiping the sweat from Makishima's forehead.

"We've known this since the beginning," Makishima reassured him.

Inui cleared his throat from the corner. "I can help with that," he said. "I know your port design, Yusuke, and I can run a top-level bypass through there to attenuate the signals on the other end."

"Why didn't you mention that sooner?" Kinjou said."

"You never asked. Yusuke, I'll need to get to your port to set this up. I think I have the right cable in here somewhere."

Makishima turned his head to the side so that Inui could reach the data ports in the back of his neck. Kinjou could tell the minute Inui finished his code and Makishima relaxed.

"Oh, that's much better," Makishima said.

"I can't believe this is really happening," Kinjou said, and Makishima nodded in agreement. In the corner, Kaidou tried to cover a sniffle with a cough, and Inui patted him on the shoulder.
