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 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).

yrindor: Head shot of Fuji Shuusuke with his eyes open (Fuji)

Should the ship be Furukawa Shuusuke/Niou Masataka? Even I'm not even sure anymore.

***

The first time Fuji saw the other dancer, he wasn't sure what to make of him. He was dancing on a street corner, seemingly oblivious to the stares he was drawing. He had a unmistakable degree of talent, sure, but Fuji had no idea what to make of his style. It was...ecclectic...to say the least. Fuji wasn't even sure where to start picking it apart; from what he saw, it had a little bit of everything it, but without refinement in any of it. But the one thing it definitely did have, and something that Fuji had often been told he was lacking, was passion. Fuji was fairly certain that the dancer could fall flat on his face and still make it look intentional, and still smile as he did so. Meanwhile, Fuji was more likely to beat himself up over every little mistake.

It had only been a passing meeting, but Fuji caught himself thinking more than once about the other dancer. But he never expected that when he arrived at his next audition, the stranger would already be warming up in the hallway. He set down his bag and tried not to be too distracted, but it was difficult as the dancer himself around in an acrobatic warmup Fuji knew he could never manage. He worked through his basics, but as he went through his splits, he noticed he had company. He didn't want to be the first to say something, not trusting his nerves not to come to false assumptions, but he was fairly certain that the other dancer was copying him. But maybe it was just nerves getting the best of him. Maybe this strangers warmups were just as much of a strange hybrid as his dancing.

Watching him in the studio, Fuji still wasn't sure what to think. The other dancer drew attention to himself in ways Fuji didn't necessarily admire, but it was also hard to ignore the talent, and what was clearly good training, even if Fuji had no idea what to make of his style. After Fuji nearly lost his place in a combination as a result of watching, he shoved all of those thoughts to the back of his mind, determined not to think about them until later. Much later, if he had his way.

The much later ended up coming far sooner than he was prepared for. He received his acceptance letter in the mail with his casting a few weeks after the audition, and rehearsals began not long after that. He nearly ran into another dancer walking into the studio, and even from the back, he recognized the dancer who had caught his attention before.

The dancer turned to him.

"Niou Masaharu," he said. "It's probably about time we were introduced properly if we're going to be dancing together and all."

"Fuji Shuusuke," Fuji said, hoping his sudden case of nerves didn't show too badly. He'd never been good with people, preferring to express himself with dance rather than words. He still didn't know how to understand the language of Niou's dance.
