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!

you met him at a cafe you used to work at, some years ago. he’d always come in at night, hood drawn, ordering a latte he would always take to the window and sit with, never drinking but a sip each time. before long you are wondering if he only comes in to look at you, to talk to you; it would not be unusual, with a face like yours, to reel in people like that.

(you think he’s handsome too, toned muscles and nice smile and all. but something about him is guarded and anxious even when he blushes when you call out his name, the wistful look he dons when he stirs his coffee while looking out the window bringing back faraway memories.)

he’s not all that hard to read compared to some other people, until the day you finally give him your number and tell him to wait after work.

you met him at a cafe you used to work at, some years ago. you don’t remember its name anymore, though nothing matters any more—not the memories his touch took from you, nor what he puts you through night after night, hesitantly at first, before you had expressed adamantly that this is what you wanted.

-

a snapshot of a life stolen: your parents far away, not even knowing if you are alive or dead; your brother in mourning for someone he thought he’d known; your past littered with broken promises and broken people and things never attainable to begin with.

“don’t you want to go home?” he sometimes asks, hesitantly, in the small hours of the night while he caresses every goosebump on your skin, the bruises on your body he tries to mitigate but sometimes fails to. you laugh and bring him into your arms, fingers pressed in the small of his back as he goes in for your neck again, gasping in as much pain as pleasure. were you someone else your breath might have more than hitched at the whisper of magic on your collar or the grazing of sharp teeth on your lips, but in truth this is better than the reality you have to return to come morning. “am i keeping you away?”

the moonlight washes over his skin, smooth and unlined and too pale. you wonder what he would look like tanned in real life, like he does in the faded family portrait in his wallet, but you know you will never see it.

“i don’t have anywhere to go back to,” you tell him, afterwards, when he’s resting his head on your chest after tracing kisses up and down your ribs, after the bruises are set and tender under the ring you still wear around your neck. “not like you.”

maybe it was bitter, or cruel, having him tense up on you and his fingers curling into fists next to you. you feel the rustle of fabric beneath, feel the chilly touch of his skin now that you are not in the reverie of lovemaking anymore. you do not know if vampires cry—you have never seen him at it. you suppose he may simply kill you if he ever tires of his, if this is all that you were meant to be to him, a stepping stone, as in the rest of your life.

it would be too easy, you surmise, but then you feel his hand over yours.

(you suppose it is cruel, with the earnestness he carries about him even in your presence, even in this kind of half-life, always hiding, always left wanting more, but never giving in to doing what you had wanted him to in the first place.)

so you take his hand, lacing your fingers with his. you lie there, eyes open, staring into the ceiling as he does, until dawn forces him away from you again.
