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.

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 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).

Why does Kinjou call Inui "dad" and Kaidou "father"?

***

It wasn't a storybook beginning, Kaidou thought, but he wouldn't have taken anything else. Even if the situation had been more fear and grief and loss than there should have been at what should have been a happy time, none of it mattered compared to where they were now. Maybe they still had a long way to go, but when he looked at Inui sleeping on the opposite side of the bed, and Kinjou tucked into the space between them, and them in a real apartment of their own, not some abandoned warehouse or cabin in the middle of the woods hiding, he thought that it was close enough to a storybook moment for them.

But of course, storybook moments never seemed to last in his life. They had been living there for barely a month, slowly picking up the pieces of their life and slotting them back together into something new and relatively whole, when Inui had left for what should have been a simple mission.

They needed the money, having been forced to leave much behind when Inui had fled, and it should have been a simple job. Kaidou usually went along to form the other half of Inui's team, but they both decided that Kinjou needed him more. Kaidou had seen Inui off that morning with a kiss on his less scarred cheek and a promise to have dinner waiting that night. Kinjou had burbled something that they took to be his version of a goodbye as well.

In retrospect, Kaidou wished he had never let Inui go off on a mission with an untried, unvetted partner. Sure, they had both done their background checks and not found anything worrying, other than a slightly slimmer resume than they would have liked, but that wouldn't have been enough to pass muster for them even a month earlier. They had thought they were safe, and they paid the price.

The call came in late that night from Tezuka. The details were still fuzzy, but all signs were pointing to treachery. It had taken Tezuka, Atobe, and Yukimura pooling their forces to rescue Inui, and even with their best medical teams working on him, there was no promise that he would survive.

One frantic phone call later, Kaidou was leaving Kinjou with Oishi and Eiji and rushing to the hospital. There was nothing new to report when he arrived, but by the next morning, the news was better; Inui would most likely recover. Days passed though, and Inui didn't regain consciousness. After much consultation, the leading theory was that something, perhaps so much trauma so soon after the last incident, had caused him to retreat deep into his own mind. There was no telling if, or when, he would wake up.

Kaidou split his time between the hospital with Inui and the apartment with Kinjou, trying to spare their son from the worst of the situation, but eventually the day came when he couldn't bear to leave Kinjou, and he brought him to the hospital too.

He wasn't sure how to explain the situation to a child too young even to talk; "your father's sick," didn't seem to be enough, but it was all he could think of. He hoped that all of the tubes and wires wouldn't frighten Kinjou too badly; he didn't know what he would do if they did.

As it turned out, he needn't have worried. Kinjou didn't seem at all bothered by the situation, babbling and tugging on the sheets until Kaidou finally gave in and moved wires and tubes to set him down on the bed next to Inui. Kinjou crawled into his favorite spot by Inui's side, stuck his thumb in his mouth, and fell asleep.

An hour later, Inui stirred.

Kaidou scrubbed a hand over his eyes, not certain anymore it wasn't fatigue making him see things, but there was no mistaking Inui's eyes looking back in his direction.

He took Inui's glasses from the bedside and slipped them onto his face. "Welcome back," he whispered. "We thought we'd lost you."

Between them, Kinjou woke up, blinking as he looked back and forth. "Da?" he asked.

Kaidou's laugh came out closer to a sob. "That's right," he said. "Your Dad's here."

"Da!" Kinjou buried his face in Inui's shoulder.

Inui caught Kaidou's eye. Kaidou read the question there and nodded. Yes, they both had been there for Kinjou's first word.
