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 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 court for two months when the emperor summons him again. He hasn't seen Akashi for nearly a month, not since the emperor observed as his first set of piercings were done. He has no idea what to expect when he presents himself to Akashi this time.

"The rumors say that you were a spy once," Akashi says, "and you yourself confirmed those rumors when we first met. Have you ever infiltrated an enemy's stronghold?"

"Yes, Your Highness."

"Do you think you could do it again now?"

"Yes, Your Highness," Fuji says. He doesn't mention that that's exactly what he is doing currently in Akashi's court.

"Then I have a task for you. There's a new king rising to the north. We've had several skirmishes with him already, and he's coming here next month to discuss a treaty. I want him to understand before then that agreeing to my terms is in his best interests. You will infiltrate his castle to help him see this."

"Yes, Your Highness," Fuji agrees, keeping his voice carefully controlled despite the sudden excitement he feels. He knows the king Akashi speaks of. His name is Yukimura, and other rumors say that one of his advisors is someone of great interest to Fuji. When Fuji first offered himself to Akashi in exchange for his brother, he believed that his brother's old master, Mizuki, had been killed when his stronghold fell. Recent rumors say that Mizuki in fact escaped and fled north, where he offered his services to the rising king. Fuji suspects that Akashi has heard these rumors as well, but he isn't going to be the first to show his hand. Let Akashi think that he is agreeing out of loyalty, not out of any ulterior motive.

"Yukimura is rumored to be a master of poisons," Akashi says. "My herbalist will help you prepare." He gestures to a servant who opens a side door to the chamber to admit the herbalist. He pushes back Fuji's sleeve roughly and takes a set of needles out of his basket, dipping them into various bottles and jars before pricking them into the skin of Fuji's forearm.

Fuji knows the principle; he's used it before in fact, but never for so many toxins at once. He clutches his throbbing arm to his chest as he hurries back to his chamber. He barely makes it through the door before the chills and nausea hit.

He spend the night flashing between hot and cold, strange fever dreams clouding his mind. The worst of it passes come morning, just in time for Akashi to enter and offer him breakfast before summoning the herbalist back for another round.

Fuji loses nearly two weeks as his body battles against the herbalist's poisons. Time blurs too, with most of the day an indistinct haze outside of Akashi's daily appearances. Sometimes, he thinks he feels hands on his body or words whispered in his ear in the middle of the night, but he doesn't trust himself to distinguish a fever dream from reality. He only hopes that the barriers he's built in his mind before are strong enough that his poison-addled mind doesn't let anything slip.

On the final day, Akashi summons Fuji back to his own chambers. When the emperor gives him the details of his mission, Fuji knows that he's passed the test and proven his obedience.
