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!

i know theres technically a very strict hierarchy re: male dancers cant dance female parts but lets just...pretend that isnt so for this fill...dksfksdj yeah. ;;

***

Act I

You see him dancing alone in the studio—your first glance of movement too ethereal for this world. His slim body hugs the rails, smooth skin illuminated by the soft yellow light. You only stop by for the half-open door, the door of a private space only afforded by the best of the best, the principal dancer.

Watching him, it is no wonder to you why Akashi Seijuurou has been chosen for this role.

His body bends gracefully, the white fabric pulled taut around his skin, his feet so delicate they must then also be most dangerous. You can see what is underneath the spandex—his well-toned muscles—and what isn’t: feathers and all.

You watch, never taking your eyes off him even as he turns and smiles at you, scarlet eyes drawing you into a vortex you cannot escape from.

Act II

When you next see him you are on stage, moving the props away, sweat beading on your forehead. It is late, and there are few people left on duty. You watch the janitor close the door behind him. The rest of the company has already retired for the night; Akashi alone is still practicing.

You wonder what it takes to be so bold, moving across the stage as if ten thousand people are watching instead of one. Each position, each jump, each twirl is executed perfectly, as if he had been born to do this. Akashi’s limbs seem to cut sharply through the air, and you stop. Somehow this time is different.

It is still beautiful; breathtaking, but somehow off.

And then you think, oh: of course it is different. There is one person for two roles, after all. A pristine tragedy in white and black.

Akashi finishes his dance, and as you leave, you hear him call out.

“Chihiro.”

Where had he learned your name? Surely it is not by your nametag, which only shows your surname. You look towards him, confused, slightly miffed at being delayed, but also hopeful.

When he smiles at you, the stage lights illuminate him golden, black tulle and all.

You are looking at a star.

Act III

You are looking at a bird, its feathers ruffled and strewn across the room. You turn, and there is a mirror.

(Who are you?)

You shake your head. Surely you are simply too tired. The director, lacking personnel, had asked you to deliver a letter for Akashi, and so you had come to his private studio.

(Whether or not your heart had always been beating this hard is another matter altogether.)

The entire room is mirrors—so he could always see what he is doing. You walk towards the Akashi there, certain he’s just playing a trick, but when you touch the coldness of the glass it is hard.

Akashi in the mirror smiles at you, teeth and all, stark white as his leotard. You wonder what his teeth would feel like against your skin, and you reach into the mirror as he reaches towards you, your fingers brushing his.

(Help me.)

His eyes seem to beg for you as you pull him, slowly, a frail creature instead of what you had seen onstage. If you close your eyes as he does his now, you will remember the strength of his fouetté as he pivots and the calculative arc of his grand jeté, the determined anguish and sultry flourish as he captivates the audience in the same way he has you entirely in his grip.

When you open your eyes again, he is gone.

“Hello, Chihiro,” Akashi says from behind, but when you turn you see his eyes are gold.

Act IV

The mirror shatters.

(Act V, An Encore

It is the day of the performance, but you are the only person in the audience, front row and center.

The playbill in your hand lists an impressive repertoire and names of the dancers, familiar, perhaps, in another life. But there is only one on stage, and you know all too well the goosebumps that crawl across your skin as you hear the first notes of the music.

And so he dances, and dances, and dances, until the stage is overflowing and you are unable to speak, until your fingernails have dug so deep into the varnished wood they may have shattered for all you know, enraptured as he reaches out for you for the last time, for Siegfried, for the vanished—

You, freed and grateful, step onto the stage.

“What can I do without you?”

In the end, when you are in the broken glass, both Odette and Odile stare at you, triumphant, their reflections blending into one another until you cannot tell who is who anymore.)

ah, hello cpop-prompter-from-hell!!! thank you for filling!!
i prompted the black swan ost not having ever watched the film or even knowing of ballet hierarchies, so you could get away with anything re accuracy haha. i'm only here for clint mansell and assumed psychological horror really

i love that it starts off with the contrast of grace and elegance buoyed by power!!! akashi is a mystical force, impassionate yet distant, what a strong start

right, there's a sense of foreboding with each new encounter, like the tension is increasing the closer they're pushed together because lol, danger lurks behind every door, brightest flower conceals the sharpest thorns, etc, etc. duality, mixed feelings, ohhh i love this <33

and the transition from a star/a bird across acts is NICE! what luck, to be in the right place at the right time and find your way to akashi's private studio. what chance, to come face to face with a simulacrum of your actual desire. mmm, to cross that boundary and tip that balance only to face a reality you'd never really wanted. this is so dreamy, even before the encore!!!

yuuuuup, dancing as if for ten thousand when in the end, there was only ever mayuzumi caught in this black hole. bewitched by beauty he should've known better than to approach. the blurring of the akashis, with reference to eye colour as one part of that is a lovely detail too!

the entire thing on a whole feels like it takes place on another level, it's floaty because mayuzumi the fool decided not to anchor himself in reality and that's....pretty relatable. i don't blame him. he threw himself on the rocks/shards and we've all been there

maybe i'll try watching the film sometime but for now, i'll continue listening to the ost and check reflections in mirrors twice!!! thanks so much!!!
