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's mission is simple: convince Yukimura that it's in his best interests to accept the terms of the treaty Akashi is about to propose. The fact that one of Yukimura's advisors happened to be Mizuki is only an added bonus. It was almost laughably easy to kill Mizuki, killing two birds with one stone by getting revenge for Mizuki toying with Yuuta and also having more ammunition to use to help sway Yukimura's mind.

Fuji leaves Mizuki's body in front of the door leading to Yukimura's chamber, then knocks twice and quickly hides himself behind Mizuki's desk.

As he planned, Yukimura is quick to open the door, but rather than panic at the sight of the body, Yukimura barely seems to notice it at all.

"Come out, Akashi's spy," he calls, too quiet for his guards to hear through the closed doors.

Fuji feels the first vague curl of fear as he stands.

"I wondered when you would make an appearance," Yukimura says. "I'm glad to know the reports I have on Akashi aren't entirely off the mark."

"Are you not upset about your advisor?" Fuji asks, trying to buy himself time.

"No," Yukimura replies. "His reports are of minimal utility to me; his greatest value was as bait for you. He's no great loss now that he's served his purpose. Come closer where I can see you."

Fuji doesn't want to obey, but his options are limited. He doesn't trust his ability to win in a fight should Yukimura call for guards, so his best option is to buy time for as long as possible and hope he sees and opening before then.

He follows Yukimura back into his chambers and waits while the king writes a note and seals it in an envelope.

"Here," Yukimura says. "I'll release you so long as you agree to deliver this to Akashi unopened."

Fuji agrees and takes the envelope, but as his hand brushes against Yukimura's, he feels a sting against his palm.

He looks down at the drop of blood welling up, then back at Yukimura who is resetting the mechanism on his ring.

"Don't worry," Yukimura says, "the poison won't kill you. Don't think any immunity Akashi may have tried to instill in you will help either though. This toxin is new; Akashi has never seen it before. I'll have one of my men bring you back to him."

Fuji wants to fight back, but his body is failing him, limbs not obeying as he stumbles. As he's bundled onto horseback, Yukimura's letter tucked into the front of his robes, he thinks it's almost crueler this way. If Yukimura had let him go alone, he could have stalled for a few days on his return to recover. Now Akashi will see proof of his failure, and he fears the emperor's retribution.
