Bonus Round 3: FSTs

FSTs


This round is CLOSED as of 7PM EDT on 8 July. Late comments are screened and will not receive points.


Profess your love for your favorite ships with the power of song! In this round, we ask you to create fan soundtracks and use them as inspiration for new fanwork.


Please read this whole post before commenting to ensure that your team gets the most points possible.

RULES
  • Submit prompts in the form of a short playlist (1-6 songs) and a ship from any of our nominated fandoms. Submit only the track listing and a link to where they can be listened to; the idea is for others to interpret what you present. You may also link to lyrics if you would like.
  • Your prompt MUST include some kind of relationship. Platonic relationships are indicated by an "&" between the names (e.g., Lilia & Sara). Non-platonic relationships use "/" (e.g., Lilia/Sara). Please don't say "Any pairing," either.
  • Create content based on the playlists of others! Fill prompts by leaving a responding comment to the prompt with your newly-created work.
  • Fills may be in any form you choose (except for another FST of course) as long as they are inspired by/fit the mood of the soundtrack they are filling for.
  • Remember to follow the general bonus round rules, outlined here.
  • Here is a prompt/fill index for your convenience.

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 each (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

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!

Spring

When Midorima first meets Akashi, he feels like he's finally met someone to aspire to. Akashi is everything he thinks he wants to be—intelligent, logical, poised. On the basketball court, Akashi is a force to be reckoned with; his play style is different from Midorima's, but Midorima admires his control and aims to emulate it in his own shooting. Off of the court, Midorima looks forward to their daily shogi games not only for the chance to play someone who challenges him, but also for the closeness that grows out of it. The first time Akashi lets him listen as he plays the violin, he thinks he's found something else to aspire to; Akashi blends technicality and emotion with a seamlessness Midorima hopes he can someday match on the piano.

Summer

It's not until Akashi takes over as captain of the team that the first storm clouds begin to gather. As the one closest to Akashi, Midorima is the first to notice them. Everyone else is still basking in the team's success as he watches with growing concern. When the storm hits, it's sudden and violent. Midorima barely recognizes his captain anymore, and he's powerless as the team is torn apart around him. When he hears Akashi play now, it's a strident, harsh sound, as if the notes are being ripped from the page and forced into the strings with none of the earlier emotion.

Fall

Starting at Shuutoku is like a new beginning. Midorima finds a new team, and new teammates. They have their rough patches, but overall they have a strong season, and it's with high hopes that they head into the final games of the Winter Cup. But then they find themselves facing Rakuzan, and the mood changes abruptly. Midorima's final months at Teiko had been a storm that battered everyone equally. Now, the game is a hunt, and Midorima is the prey. He fights as hard as he can, but in the end he falls before Akashi, and the rest of the team is brought down with him. He hasn't seen Akashi outside of the court in almost a year, nevermind heard him play.

Winter

It's with a heavy heart that Midorima goes to watch the final game of the Winter Cup. He doesn't dare to hope, and yet, somehow, against all odds, Kuroko and Seirin hold strong against Akashi's onslaught and defeat him. The weekend after the game, Midorima finds himself making his way carefully up the icy path to Akashi's door. He wonders if he'll be let in. He wonders if someday he'll have the chance to listen to Akashi practice again. He wonders what Akashi's violin sounds like now.

oh god this hurts ;; i love how you separated each section according to the piece, and the dissonance? with how bright the music is with the degradation of their relationship+akashi's mental state is just </3 /Midorima barely recognizes his captain anymore,/ this just. hurts. /When he hears Akashi play now, it's a strident, harsh sound, as if the notes are being ripped from the page and forced into the strings with none of the earlier emotion./ the wording here is phenomenal, its just so visceral and the way fall coincided with shuutoku, and winter with the obvious conclusion the last line is ughhhh. the open endedness.. u guessed it, hurts thank u for being the first to fill one of my prompts this round :D

I'm glad you liked it! I love classical musical prompts in general, and they seem to fit especially well for Midorima and Akashi given their respective instruments. Akashi in general hurts for me, and the arc of his relationship with Midorima hurts even more. I just want to hug both of them and fix it all.
