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.

A nice ship, and a really nice prompt for them. I'm alarmingly easy to summon with anything involving classical + Oshitari Yuushi (really just Yuushi in general I suppose).

***

Sometimes, when people talked about the Hyoutei tennis team, Yuushi would hear them describe Atobe as Mars. He knew it was for Atobe's strength, and the way he could pinpoint his opponents' weaknesses and strike to them with alarming accuracy, but Yuushi always thought it was an inaccurate description. Atobe may have been powerful, but he didn't seek out violence the way Mars did; that was more the realm of Rikkai's problematic second year. If Mars were fire, violent and wild, Atobe was ice, controlled but deadly, hitting exactly where he needed to for a point, but no further. The only time Yuushi saw Atobe's control falter was during his match against Tezuka, but Yuushi considered that an outlier and not an accurate representation of his captain.

The only way Yuushi could wrap his head around the comparison between Atobe and Mars was if people happened to mean the way the god was portrayed in paintings, standing proud with his shield and crested helmet as he looked down on the armies below. But even then, Yuushi would have argued that Ares would be a more fitting description, for the Greek aesthetic came far closer to capturing his captain's beauty.

At parties, Atobe's other side came out. He moved smoothly between all of the guests, charming them with his effortless small talk. There was always enough food and drink too, arranged artfully on long tables lining one wall of the ballroom. Yuushi always attended, as required be social protocol, but he usually lingered by the walls, engaging in conversation when it came to him, but otherwise watching Atobe's seamless handling of every swooning socialite that came his way.

The one exception was the rare times when Atobe slipped away from his would-be suitors to ask Yuushi for a dance. Yuushi treasured every such time, his hand in Atobe's in the center of the floor with everyone watching them. They happened infrequently, Atobe being careful not to show too much outward appearance of favor to any one of his guests.

But such outward appearances were deceptive, for outside of the public gaze, Atobe showed his favor more freely. Yuushi was usually the more private of the two, hiding his thoughts behind careful calculations and an unshakable poker face. Atobe had always been able to see through the mask, and Yuushi had always let him. When they were alone, Atobe would pull forth the deepest secrets from Yuushi's heart, husky whispers that he would treasure like the last, lingering notes of a choir.

Thank you for filling my prompt! I’m so glad I could summon you ^.^

You write so beautifully! I love how this piece hints at the contrast in their personalities and shows the way Yuushi is always silently, but carefully observing Atobe.

The last line is probably my favorite. The prose is just so gorgeous.

Thank you! I'm glad you liked it!

I love Yuushi as the observer, and how Atobe can see past his calculating side. I had a lot of fun with this prompt.
