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
Fills 11-20: 5 points each
Fills 21-50: 2 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

***

As a relatively new slave in Akashi's court, Fuji is at the very bottom of the ladder when it comes to work assignments. As one who has earned at least some favor from the emperor, he's spared the worst of the manual labor, but he still finds himself assigned to scrubbing the baths more days than not.

In the grand scheme of things, he considers that it's really not such bad work. The baths are nearly empty midday, with the morning crowd already gone, the evening crowd not yet arrived, and the residential areas of the palace as a whole relatively quiet as everyone goes about their day. He doesn't mind the solitude; it gives him plenty of time to think and plan. Someday, he'll want to move into a more active area where he can overhear more gossip, but he's new enough now that even just the information he picks up on his own is enough to keep him occupied. And if he wants more, he just needs to find an excuse to be in the baths during one of the rushes. He's found that delivering an extra load of clean towels or scented oils is always a good excuse.

Today, the baths are completely empty. He ties back his sleeves and starts scrubbing the tile floor, letting his mind wander as he works his way from one corner of the large room to the other. He's made it all the way to the doorway of the room holding the smaller pool before he realizes he's not alone. There's another slave standing in the doorway; he must have been soaking when Fuji came in, and somehow passed under Fuji's radar. One glance at the slave's numerous piercings tell Fuji that he's a pleasure slave, and one heavily favored by the emperor.

"Careful, the floor is wet," Fuji says, his eyes downcast in front of someone who so clearly outranks him.

"Don't let him fool you," the slave says bitterly.

Fuji's eyes dart up in surprise at the acid in his tone; he doesn't have to ask who the slave means. He picks up on things in his second glance that he missed on the first. A couple of the studs forming a necklace along the slave's collarbone have rejected and not been replaced, leaving raised scars in their place. Kneeling on the floor as he is, it's hard not to notice the other slave's many genital piercings either, or the ones that are missing from the pattern, and from there, he sees what else is missing as well.

He averts his gaze again quickly.

"I was the emperor's favorite once," the slave says, and Fuji is finally able to match a name to the person in front of him. Kise Ryouta, one of the early members of Akashi's inner circle. "He promised me eternal beauty and favor, and I was stupid enough to believe him. Now look at where I am. He didn't even pause for a second before he discarded me in favor of Kuroko, so I'm warning you. Don't trust a word that comes from his mouth. It's all poison and lies, even if it tastes like honey."

"Thank you," Fuji says, keeping his eyes down. "I'll remember." It's nothing he doesn't already know, but he makes note of it nonetheless.

*whistles softly* Ouch. OUCH. You really tore my heart out here for Kise. The description of the MISSING piercings, of what's been taken from Kise? And ise's words!

It's all poison and lies, even if it tastes like honey.

That line absolutely guts me and I love Kise still trying to warn Fuji despite knowing Akashi might punish him for it. AND IT RAISES THE QUESTION OF WHERE IS KUROKO NOW.
