Bonus Round 4: Quotes

Quotes


This round is CLOSED as of 7PM EDT on 22 July. Late comments are screened and will not receive points.


An oldie but a goodie—in this round, we draw inspiration from famous words said by other people.


Please read this whole post before commenting to ensure that your team gets the most points possible.

RULES
  • Submit prompts by commenting to this post with a quote attributed to a specific person or character, along with any ship/ot3/etc. from one of our nominated fandoms.
    • Example: "That which does not kill us makes us stronger." -Friedrich Nietzsche
    • The quote can come from almost anything—famous people, poetry, songs, books, movies, etc.— but please don't quote personal conversations you've had or overheard.
    • Your prompt MUST include some kind of relationship. Platonic relationships are indicated by an "&" between the names (e.g., Natsuo & Yuzuko). Non-platonic relationships use "/" (e.g., Natsuo/Yuzuko). Please don't say "Any pairing," either!
  • Fill prompts by replying to the prompt with your quote-inspired fanwork.
  • 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!

Kaidou was used to the cursing that often came along with Inui battling a particularly stubborn piece of code. Back in their college days, it had been a near constant late at night the day before a problem set was due. Cursing over code bugs had always had a particular tone to it that was distinct from, for example, the way Inui used to curse of retrosynthesis in his organic chemistry classes, or general relativity the first time he had taken physics. It was a subtle difference between them, but Kaidou had learned all of them well, even if now he rarely heard anything but the soft muttering that came along with line after line of code across a computer screen.

Over the years, Kaidou had learned to tune out most of it until it was little more than background noise, but tonight, it kept breaking through his concentration. By his count, Inui had been cursing over the same problem for upwards of twelve hours, and his muttered curses had been growing more and more frequent until they were a nearly constant string.

"Senpai?" Kaidou asked, poking his head hesitantly through the door to Inui's study.

He winced at the sight. Inui appeared to have been so caught up in his code that he had forgotten to turn on the lights, and now he sat in the dark in front of more glowing monitors than Kaidou really cared to consider. The harsh light reflected off of Inui's glasses making them glow even more strongly than usual.

"Senpai," Kaidou repeated as he turned on the lights, "maybe you should take a break."

"I almost have it," Inui said without looking up. "I can feel it. It's almost there. This bug isn't getting away this time."

He rubbed his temples absently as he spoke.

"I brought you tea," Kaidou said, setting the mug down by Inui's hand. He would have preferred to bring food, but he knew how Inui felt about food anywhere near his computers.

"Thank you, Kaidou. I don't know how this bug keeps eluding me. I've been through the code ten times now, and I still can't find the problem. It's somewhere between these two statements, but there's no reason I can find why it should be failing. I have the same loop running at least a dozen other places in this program without a problem."

"Why don't you print it out, Senpai," Kaidou suggested. It had worked in the past when Inui had been stuck on an especially difficult problem and at risk of burning his eyes on his computer screen.

"I'm fine. It can't take much longer," Inui protested, but Kaidou reached past him and pushed the print key.

"Your eyes will thank you," Kaidou said as he handed the stack of paper to Inui.

Less than ten minutes later, he heard a triumphant shout from Inui's study.

"I found you!" Inui yelled. "Thought you could hide behind a stray semicolon, did you? Well, I've got you now. Take that!"

Kaidou smiled to himself. "Do not underestimate the value of print statements for debugging", one of Inui's first computer science textbooks had said. Kaidou had taken the wisdom to heart even if Inui often forgot it.

OH MAN, PUNCTUATION IN CODE. It's such a problem.

Thank you so much for this!! And I'm so glad Kaidou finds ways to be helpful with the coding <3

Heh, this may or may not have been inspired in part by the one and only time I ever coded something in Javascript. I'm glad you liked it!

I love how Kaidoh can tell all Inui's different mutterings apart and takes care of him so well. <3 So sweet!
