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!

***

Shintarou stops at the same corner supermarket he always does, even after it had all happened, because he doesn’t know where else to go.

He gets his daily newspaper there (most of the time; he likes the feel of the paper rustling against his fingers, but sometimes he is simply too busy for that), maybe some groceries (if he feels like it, or if his mother had asked him to stop by for something), and shiruko (a constant). Sometimes he would hover over the hot meals, pausing in front the side dishes before remembering he is alone.

The chilly winter air stings his face even as he pulls his scarf over his nose and walks towards his apartment, spare and empty with too much of him still unable to leave.

Shintarou checks his messages to look for the link to his ticket again, for his flight to Boston in two days. If he scrolls down enough, he will find other messages, strewn across time, but he does not make to look at those, or delete them.

When he arrives home he sets down the bags, waters his plants, and takes out the curry rice and side of kimchi to eat.

-

Today’s Oha Asa prediction for Cancer is disheartening. Rank eleven, with the lucky item of a pack of tissues. Shintarou already carries one around (one never knows when an accident would happen), but today he packs two just in case. The apartment is leased for another year—he would sublease it, to offset the cost of a Tokyo residence, but for now that is out of the question.

Shintarou drops off his sister’s jacket (she’d left it by accident the last time she’d visited, not all that long ago) quietly, before she returns home. His parents are away, and he had already said goodbye to them anyhow—he would see his family again in the winter, for Christmas.

He would see others: his friends, schoolmates, acquaintances perhaps.

The trees have long shed their foliage for the season, framing the park down the street like bare skeletons. Shintarou quickens his footsteps as he walks past the entrance, the coffee in his hands threatening to spill.

It’s silly being so hung up on something out of his control, after he had tried—God, had he tried.

(Had he not been enough? Or had it been something else?)

Shintarou almost trips on a root growing out of the side of the wall, and spills some of the coffee onto the ground, staining the grey concrete in dark splotches. He wrinkles his nose and makes a mental note to file a report to the city. When he reaches into his pocket for his tissues—Oha-Asa has never been wrong about this—he feels his phone vibrate, the music start, slow and steady.

He hasn’t heard this ringtone in what seems like a long two weeks. Shintarou stands, stark still in the middle of the sidewalk, lukewarm coffee seeping into his gloves as the song plays again and again, from beginning till end, the lyrics still echoing in his ears long after it had ceased.

-

Oha Asa had never been wrong before, but it is unusual for it to repeat a lucky item so soon.

Shintarou sits in the waiting area at his gate in Haneda Airport, scanning the screen for delays. In the airport time slows to a crawl, full of rowdy children and old men dozing on the benches, luggage piled up so high he cannot tell one from another.

An announcement comes on; they are to board starting now.

His phone buzzes with a new message as he stands up, shouldering his single carry-on bag. There will be new lucky items to buy in America, new things to see, as much as he prefers everything to stay growing at a constant pace, at home. But that is something for the future.

Shintarou takes out his phone, expecting to see a short message from his sister.

Take care, Shin-chan.

-

The flight attendant smiles but doesn’t ask when he points to the number on his ticket. Shintarou follows the directions to the left aisle in the flow of boarding passengers, his grip tight, the nylon straps digging into his skin.

When he sits down, he is relieved to find his seatmate already preparing to doze off. Shintarou looks out his window—at the asphalt down below, the unremarkable concrete buildings, the single large wing of the aircraft. The early morning sky, overcast and grey, threatening, looms over them.

The plane is held back for a little while before he hears the intercom start up again.

Shintarou shuts off his internet connection, stows his phone away, and stares at the screen where the flight attendant is demonstrating how to use the emergency exits. Halfway through takeoff, while the rest of the plane is holding to their seats, exuberant or despairing, he reaches for his lucky item of the day just as the rain starts to fall.

gosh i'm still screaming about this fill. i just. i just love the entire atmosphere you've built up, the little details you put into shintarou's "now," the way it kind of feels like a zoom in and slow pan of him going about with an empty space beside him.

walks towards his apartment, spare and empty with too much of him still unable to leave.
i'm crying!!!!!! this feeling is all too tangible;;;

and then the second half where he's just getting ready to leave, to go some place else anew, to move on---then that message---then the quiet as he boards the plane, and still the callbacks to his horoscope beliefs and the lucky items. idk how to describe it but i'm feeling Many Things

thank u so much for this fill it's so beautiful
