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.

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 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!

I realize this was probably supposed to be a fluffy prompt, but somehow this happened instead /o\

***

Midsummer. Cicadas crying overhead. A simple stone, the dirt still fresh around it. A boy walking along the path nearby. He pauses, gaze falling on the stone, takes a hesitant step as if to leave the path, then stops again, turns back, and returns the way he came.

A year later, midsummer again. Grass has grown in around the stone, and moss is creeping up one side where it's shaded by the tree overhead. The boy comes down the path again. This time, he walks across the grass, kneeling in front of the stone. A hand brushes away the worst of the moss. The stone is pale against his skin, cool despite the heat of the day. A half-remembered memory and a half-smile up at the pale blue sky.

"Tetsu."

Two syllables from a wavering voice, and then nothing. A long pause that would be silent save for the insects chirping in the gentle breeze. The stone waits, but no more words are forthcoming. Tears fall onto the stone like summer rain. The boy's shoulders shake in silent sobs.

"Tetsu."

The same two syllables repeated. Part promise, part apology, part memory. The boy stands and leaves. The unspoken words hang heavy in the air.

Another year, another summer. The boy is taller now, hunching over even while kneeling to brush off the stone.

"Tetsu," he begins again, but this time, the rest of the words follow.

"Sorry it took so long to say this. It's been rough without you. This isn't how we expected things to end, but—"

The boy trails off, rubs a fist over his eyes.

"Look. We fucked up. Fine, I fucked up too. I wish I'd said this before, but I'm glad I met you. I know we had our rough spots, but you changed me. Maybe you wouldn't be completely happy with who I am now—hell, I'm not happy with it some days—but I like to think I'm better than I was. And, well, even if I'm not, what's happened has happened, and there's no going back, so I guess you're stuck with it. Or I'm stuck with it?"

A frustrated gesture at the stone.

"You know I've never been good with words. What I'm trying to say is: I'm glad I knew you. You changed my life when you came into it, and that's not going to change. Not now, not ever. So I guess what I'm really trying to say is, 'Thank you,' and I wish I'd said it sooner."

...this is not okay at all, Yrin, I reject this fill and push it back at you how dare you write something so sad?! That little Tetsu at the start just gutted me, as did Aomine crying. And him originally turning back and then having to go anyway!

The speech was the worst though. The speech was just awful. I want to hug Aomine so badly right now.

I'll join you in the wanting to hug Aomine club. I love AoKuro friendship, but ;sldkfdlkjs "For Good" is at the very top of the "most tragic and heartbreaking songs in Wicked" list for me, and somehow this ended up happening as a result.
