Bonus Round 5: Clue

Clue


This round is CLOSED as of 7PM EDT on 5 August. Late comments are screened and will not receive points.


Sometimes, all you need are a few little details to imagine something bigger. This round is inspired by a classic board game with a cast of colorful characters, but for SASO your only limits on "who", "where", and "with what" are what you can imagine (and the SASO fandom list, of course)!

This round closes on 5 August @ 7PM EDT. (Countdown Timer.)


Please read this whole post before commenting to ensure that your team gets the most points possible. (There are changes from last year!)


RULES
  • Submit prompts by commenting to this post with the format of a Clue mystery - "[character] in the [location] with [item]", along with any ship/ot3/etc. from one of our nominated fandoms.
    • Example: Sawamura Daichi in the teachers' lounge with the Hello Kitty! lunchbox
    • The person in your prompt MAY be a member of your ship, but is not REQUIRED to be part of your ship. They must still be a named character from a SASO-nominated fandom.
    • Your place must be a physical location, not a state of being or a state of being. However, this location is not required to be real, nor must it be from the same setting as the characters.
    • The "item" used must be a physical object that the character can hold or manipulate.
    • Unlike the board game, your prompt is NOT required to imply murder. The scenario implied can be anything at all! (As always, please tag properly!)
    • 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 Clue-inspired fanwork.
  • Remember to follow the general bonus round rules, outlined here.
  • Here is a prompt/fill index for your convenience.

They're first years in this drabble!

***

Osamu isn’t hiding, really. He just doesn’t like the attention and would like to do his business alone, in peace, without annoying inquiries chipping his social tolerance away. He especially wants to avoid Kita’s ‘I told you so’ look, because even though he’s his senpai, Osamu is kind of irritated he can't read him well. The fact he’s the next captain doesn’t help either.

While everyone is doing spiking drills, Osamu is in the club-room trying to wrap tape around his fingers, which proves to be harder than he thought it would be. He has seen a few teammates and the nurse do it, but he never had to do it himself; he’s always been careful while practicing. High school is on a whole another level than middle school and the rougher hours of spiking, diving, running, crouching have taken a toll on his body—he can’t remember when is the last time he felt that exhausted in middle school.

His right hand is constantly pulsing with ache, and he figured he should take better care of it before he breaks a few fingers. The coach says he has the spiking strength of a bull ready to headbutt animals and trees alike to make its way through, which is a valuable asset for later games and for his own panel of skills. His fellow first years think he’s going to be the next ace, especially if Atsumu manages to get the regular setter position. Can’t have one twin without the other, right? Osamu begs to differ.

He’s fighting with the tape when someone pushes the door open. He looks up and finds Atsumu’s amused gaze, thoroughly enjoying the despair that Osamu is probably unconsciously showing.

“Having a bit of trouble, little bro?” he chuckles.

Osamu rolls his eyes and goes back to loosely wrapping his middle finger.

“I’m almost done,” he tells Atsumu.

“That doesn’t look done,” Atsumu disagrees. “I can do it for you.”

“It’s not going to look better.”

“It is!”

“Except for setting your fingers are useless.”

“Well your fingers are as useless as mine right now!”

Osamu gives him a flat look, to which Atsumu responds with a pout. The sulking doesn’t last though as Atsumu snatches the tape from Osamu’s hands and hoots in victory, ignoring his brother’s indignation. He unfolds it and approaches Osamu, but the latter keeps his hands close to his chest, an exasperated look on his face.

“I just said I don’t want your useless fingers near me.” He deadpans.

“Come on ‘Samu, I’m more experienced than you in applying tape! I’m a setter, I can’t not have complete flexibility, right?”

“I don’t remember seeing you with bandaged fingers.”

“That’s because you’re blind.”

Osamu stretches out an arm and smacks Atsumu on the head, which elicits a yelp that sounds like music to his ears.

“Stop hitting me at every chance you get!”

“If your face wasn’t so hittable, I’d stop.”

“Jerk!”

“Stupid.”

“Are you guys ever going to leave the club-room?”

Suna’s calm voice at the door puts a halt to their bickering. Osamu sighs and sticks out his right hand.

“Do it, but do it well.”

“Like I need you to tell me that.”

Then Atsumu carefully wraps the tape around Osamu’s fingers, and even if the job isn’t perfect, it does the trick and Osamu is glad that his brother has such deft hands.

The first thing Mayuzumi sees is a walking, talking snowman.

Well. It doesn't walk so much as it hops along the snow, its stick arms waving with each movement, its carrot nose sagging like it's going to fall off entirely.

"Did he make you," Mayuzumi sighs, looking down at the snowman. It comes up to knee height and it looks—bad. There's no other word for it. The snowman looks horrible, like if a child had made it with only a vague idea of what snowmen were meant to look like.

"Tatsuya made me!" the snowman replies cheerfully. Mayuzumi doesn't know how it actually has a voice, or where it's coming from, but he's stopped questioning these things. There's a blanket of snow covering most of the world and he's pretty sure it's because his boyfriend is pissed off. There are more important matters at hand right now.

"Can you show me where Tatsuya is?" Mayuzumi asks, bending down with his hands braced on his knees, the way he would if he was talking to a child.

The snowman stares at him with its beady eyes. "Don't patronise me."

"I'm sorry," Mayuzumi sighs. "Could you please take me to Tatsuya? I'd like to speak with him."

"He probably doesn't want to speak with you," the snowman replies, but leads him across the snowy field anyway.

Mayuzumi didn't really know what to expect of the north pole before coming here, and he's pretty sure that what he's seeing right now isn't exactly an accurate representation of what it normally looks like. Then again, it's not normally the domain of an ice mage with an incredibly short fuse and a flair for the dramatic.

He thinks that he can see a palace in the distance, made entirely of ice. If that isn't bad enough, there's a labyrinthine path leading to the entrance, also made of ice that sticks out of the snow like massive pieces of jagged glass. Mayuzumi follows the snowman, making sure not to lose sight of it, until he gets to the door. He desperately wants to make a joke about how Himuro is doing the exact opposite of letting it go, but he knows that won't go over well right now.

When he steps inside the palace, he finds Himuro sitting there on a throne, also made of ice.

"Even if you can't feel the cold, I'm sure that has to be uncomfortable," Mayuzumi says, and supposes that perhaps that's not the first thing he should have said to Himuro after their fight. He clears his throat. "You're sending the entire world into another ice age because I forgot our anniversary."

"Yes I am," Himuro says frostily.

"I think that's. Well. There are a lot of people suffering for my mistake, and that doesn't sit well with me. Tell me what I can do to make it up to you."

"Do you really want to?" Himuro asks, regarding him coldly. "Or are you doing it simply because you feel responsible?"

"It was our five year anniversary," Mayuzumi points out. "We wouldn't have lasted five years if I didn't actually care about you."

"If you cared about me—"

"—I would have marked my calendar, I know." Mayuzumi sighs. "I'm sorry. Writing deadlines. You know what they're like."

Himuro sighs slowly, and the room feels a little colder. "I'm happy in my ice palace, Chihiro."

"You'd probably be happier in our apartment," Mayuzumi replies. "The chairs are more comfortable there."

Slowly, Himuro's mood thaws. He smiles at Mayuzumi and gets up from his throne.

"You really came all this way to bring me home."

"I did," Mayuzumi replies, wrapping an arm around Himuro's shoulders and guiding him out of the palace.

Around them, the air begins to feel a little warmer.

Mild sexual content, talk of love hotels, BDSM, collars, etc. No actual sex though, I keep chickening out of writing it. XD

***

Love hotels are so innately sleazy that Iwaizumi hates going to them but after all, what else can they do? They’re both in college, living in the dorms, and while their roommates might be willing to clear out for a night or two to have company, they’d still have to deal with their neighbors hearing everything through the thin dorm walls.

Their only option is to find somewhere else to stay and that means either normal hotels (expensive and tiny) or love hotels (luxuriously large, reasonably priced and with plenty of interesting extras). This particular hotel offers a subway car room as well as a Hello Kitty room and a bondage room.

The bondage room is the only one that Iwaizumi has ever had any interest in renting. The hotel is always extremely clean so he’s sure that the equipment in the room would be equally sterile and free of the bodily fluids of previous guests. The only thing that stops him is the thought that it might be a little much for Kyoutani. He’ll have to ease him into it more slowly.

Iwaizumi’s always the one to show up first and book the room, though Kyoutani will pay him half the cost at the end. Kyoutani makes sure not to arrive too much later with a hood pulled over his head and his body slouched so that nobody will be able to recognize him later or tell he’s male. Some hotels don’t allow same-sex couples and this one is too conveniently located to both their colleges that they don’t want to find themselves barred from entry.

By the time Kyoutani’s arrived, Iwaizumi’s had enough time to strip off, take a shower and explore the facilities. The room this time has a vending machine with lingerie, a large Jacuzzi and of course, the obligatory wide screen TV with more channels of porn than anyone could want.

The lingerie’s cute but not Iwaizumi’s style. It does make him wonder if the bondage room would have a vending machine with harnesses and pleather outfits, though. Buying something like that for Kyoutani might be fun.

This hotel only stocks two condoms per visit but Iwaizumi brought a fresh pack with him along with the gift for Kyoutani. The old collar had been good, sturdy black leather with a D-ring but this one…

Iwaizumi picks it up and runs his fingers along it, feeling the multiple small prongs on the inside. Kyoutani does like to be disobedient so he can get himself punished. This new collar will punish Kyoutani anytime he tries to pull away from Iwaizumi.

Just the thought of looping his fingers under the collar and yanking on it while he fucks Kyoutani is enough to make Iwaizumi half-hard.

If Kyoutani takes any longer to get there, Iwaizumi really will have a reason to punish him.

Takao hadn’t taken Midorima’s sweater; Midorima would actually complain about that one and come get it back and Takao doesn't want to really fight him about this. He just wants to wear Midorima’s sweater, feel it bunch up around him in all of its folds, perfectly coutured to Midorima’s form but way too big on Takao. The cuffs are over his hands and off the ends entirely; his hands are wrapped in the parts of the arms that are on Midorima’s wrist, and the sweater’s long enough to cover his ass. The neck is a little wide, but it’s still warm and cozy.

It’s utterly stupid and cliche to miss his boyfriend this much when he’s on a fucking study trip; Takao’s not a sap like that (and no, this isn’t Miyaji’s influence talking). Still, though, when you get used to being with someone, in a certain place, it starts to feel a little bit emptier without them. The apartment’s fairly cluttered, even if it’s relatively neat; Midorima’s stock of lucky items of the past and potentially of the future fill the shelves and the tops of furniture. They have no room in the living room for a grand piano, but Midorima had wanted one so Takao had figured out a way to arrange the furniture, the couch and the chair and the TV stand, in a cozy little circle. The window seat is still open, and there’s still room for Takao to sulk and keep checking his phone even though he’ll see and hear when he gets the alert. He leans against the pane; it’s cold out and the leaves are blowing. Autumn is his least favorite season, even though it’s his birthday; he pulls the sweater down over his hands again.

At least when the weather’s like this he can snatch up one of Midorima’s sweaters and claim it’s because he hasn’t gotten his cold weather clothes out and he’s too lazy for now because what if it gets hot again (Midorima always gives him a disapproving look, but it softens when he sees Takao in his sweater even though he pretends to want to wear that exact one at that moment; it’s his way of letting Takao know he’s noticed). And he’ll be home soon; Takao resolutely does not look at his phone screen again. He’s got the sweater that smells the same clean soap and disinfectant way Midorima does; he’s got a million more things to needle Midorima about when he gets back. It won’t be too long.

at a quarter to midnight, youichi's left in the grand ballroom with empty arms and a pair of shoes, dropped one after the other like dewdrops quitting a rose, so light in his hands he's afraid they'll disintegrate. their owner has flown, evaporated in a flurry of silk and sound, the great rush of wings echoing like a thunderclap in youichi's ears. he's never seen that look on ryousuke's face before, the dark flash of surprise and fear in his eyes, lips parted as if to shout before he was swept out of the palace on an ominous wind. youichi clutches the feathered slippers to his chest and runs.

the first cries of alarm follow him out into the night, guards and guests alike recovering from the shock a beat behind their swift prince, too slow to stop him. youichi's already rushing headlong down the long curve of the grand steps, eyes trained on the sky and its profusion of stars, searching. there's nothing, no swan-shaped slice of shadow winging its way north. the sky is clear, cloudless, full-moon bright. empty. youichi curses and vaults over the stair railing, cutting toward the stables. he knows where to go.

*

the lake is as flat and still as a mirror when youichi gets there, the blaze of the moon across its surface nearly blinding. there's no drone of nighttime insects or call of birds, the hush so profound that youichi's horse seems to feel it, ears flicking uneasily where he leaves her tethered at the edge of the wood. the only movement on the water is a swan, gliding across the lake with its head under its wing, as if asleep. the soft blush shade of its feathers is clear in the bright wash of moonlight, but it doesn't stir when youichi calls out. he tries again, the name heavy on his tongue: ryousuke!.

nothing.

youichi wades out as far as he can, the water slipping chill fingers down his spine, soaking his finery. the swan drifts, motionless, moved by some current youichi can neither see or feel. ryousuke, youichi says again, up to his chest in the lake, teeth starting to chatter, rattling against the syllables. the swan doesn't wake but the lake seems to shift, the third call of that name ringing out across the night and turning the current, send it back toward youichi rather than away.

the swan is warm and breathing, feathers silky against youichi's cold hands when it comes into range. it can't seem to hear or feel anything youichi says or does, perfectly still. youichi wraps an arm around it and struggles toward shore.

i really liked that scene in tamako love story??

***

“Which emperor is this? What period even is this, what the hell.” Hanamaki stabs his pencil on his notebook, scowling fiercely. “Why do we even need to learn this stuff? These guys are dead and I can’t be bothered to remember their names.”

“Tell that to the entrance exams,” Issei says.

Hanamaki groans, dragging out the sound. He drops his pencil and pushes back from his desk. “That’s it,” he says, “I’m done. Tell my mother I love her, but I’m going to go live under a bridge where I don’t have to cram useless history facts in my head. I’ll survive off the fish in the river.”

Issei watches, amused, as Hanamaki shuffles from his chair to his bed, flopping down on his front and lying there, unmoving. He leans back on the bean bag chair he’s occupying in the corner of Hanamaki’s room. Hanamaki isn’t a messy person, but he’s definitely a hoarder. His desk is piled precariously with various notebooks, stationery, tissue boxes, and not one, but two lamps. Most of his clothes have made it into his hamper by the door or the closet, but a few stray jackets hang over the foot of the bed and the chair. Several bags and socks and hats sit on the floor against one wall. The bookshelves are overflowing with books, DVDs, CDs, and collectibles of all shapes and sizes. There are posters on almost every available wall space and stuffed animals scattered on the bed and onto the shelf above his desk. It’s a lot, but it tells the story of a boy, a boy Issei can spend forever being fascinated by.

He spots something on the bottom shelf. Reaching over, Issei hooks his fingers around the string and pulls it towards him. A grin finds its way onto his lips.

“Oi, Makki,” he says. He only receives a grunt. Issei throws one of the paper cups. It bounces off Hanamaki’s head and lands on his pillow.

“Ow, the heck?” Hanamaki rolls over. He blinks at the cup on his pillow, and then his eyes follow the string attached to the cup back to where Issei is holding the other half. He huffs out a laugh. “Where did you find that?”

“Humour me, Hanamaki.”

Hanamaki does, picking up the string telephone and putting it by his ear. He closes his eyes and raising his eyebrows, an expression of exaggerated expectancy.

Issei doesn’t think too hard about it. He whispers three little words into his half of the phone line, waits the few seconds for the sound to travel across the short distance. He sees the exact moment Hanamaki hears it, the way his eyes fly open, the way his lips twitch almost involuntarily.

Hanamaki tugs on the phone, pulling Issei over. “You—” he says, but he’s grinning, and Issei is laughing, and everything is good.

No more homework is done that day.

Warnings for mention of injury!

***

The doorbell over the small shop jingled merrily as Aomine pushed the door open. He ignored the stacks of merchandise, not even glancing at the shelves, and made a beeline for the counter where an old man was using a magnifying glass to read the newspaper.

“How much for these?” He asked, tipping a handful of crystals onto the wooden countertop.

“Good morning, young man,” the pawnshop keeper said amicably but with a hint of reproach. Young people these days had no manners! They were always in such a hurry to get to places and do things.

“...Good morning,” Aomine said after a second, remembering how many times he’d been admonished to try to speak more politely. “Please, how much can you give me for these?”

The old man tsked and switched out his magnifying glass for a jeweler’s loupe. He swept a black velvet cloth, much worn and a little faded, onto the counter and transferred all the jewels to rest on top of the cloth. Aomine watched carefully to make sure none of the crystals disappeared into the man’s palm.

“Hmmm,” the man said, picking them up one by one with a pair of tweezers. His hands trembled, spotted with age and as wrinkled as his face, but he didn’t drop a single crystal.

He put them down, along with the loupe, and looked at Aomine with milky-blue eyes, clouded at the edges but still sharp at the center.

“These aren’t natural,” he said flatly.

“Yeah,” Aomine admitted, “I know. So how much are they worth?”

“Hard to say,” the old man said, stirring them with the tweezers. “Where did you get them from? They may have better uses than jewelry.”

“...Tears,” Aomine said, still keeping a wary eye on the crystals.

The man’s focus shifted sharply away from the stones to Aomine. “Tears of sorrow? Grief? Joy? Fatigue? Anger?”

“Pain,” Aomine said, unwilling to explain any further about Kise’s ankle and how it had been his fault Kise had been pushed too far.

The shopkeeper sighed dolefully and shook his head. “Crystallized pain won’t go for much, young man. If you’re going to go to all the trouble of dosing an enemy, you might as well use a poison.”

“Then as jewelry - how much would you pay for them then?” Aomine asked desperately.

“...Tell you what,” the man said finally, bringing out a little box from under the counter. “I won’t pay you for those but I will trade you.”

He opened the box and Aomine peered down at the contents.

“How’d you like to trade for some magic beans?”

if by any reason they come out of this intact and reasonably sane, hajime thinks, he will owe the big boss a sincere apology and most likely also his resignation. it looks appropriately apocalyptic up there already, the sky a boiling steel grey with barely any sunlight; at a quarter to noon, it's just plain unseasonable.

he stands back-to-back with him, demon wings feeling very similar to his own. hajime's heard that they probably have shared origins, and that oikawa had sauntered down to hell on a lark than actually Fallen, but today on this end of days, he'll take anyone who fights with him as someone on his side. "i thought you lost that," oikawa remarks, the flaming sword illuminating the dark. "it's nice." hajime so often forgets that he, too, was a Principality in his time Upstairs before the Great Flirtation Downward.

"it's a temporary loan," he hisses. hajime flexes his angel muscles in a way he hasn't in a very, very long time, oikawa briefly taking the time to leer at him through his sunglasses. with enough concentration, the tire iron in hajime's hands bursts into flame.

"neat trick, that."

"useful," hajime agrees. the forces of darkness gathered around them both, demon voices hissing as they prepared to attack. "not your friends?" they attack just at the tail end of the question. demons, of all beings, understand and appreciate the value of dramatic timing; hajime supposes it's only to be expected. the millennia he's spent with oikawa as an agent on earth has only enured him to the bizarre qualities of the vast demonic bureaucracy, but when it came to push all beings (above and below) all probably needed a good brawl to shake up the monotony of reports and paperwork.

"well," oikawa says, sounding quite breathless as hajime's flaming sword cleaves demons in two, "i don't know if you've noticed, but i'm holding a divine sword with the handle wrapped in my own clothes just to save my own skin from burning. i think they take that as a sign of betrayal."

hajime clangs another one on the head, burning tire iron vibrating madly in his hands from the sheer force of his vengeance. "good point."

"i'm known to make them," oikawa agrees. the contingent of demons appear to slowly disintegrate, either from some kind of cursed signal from Below or from the might of their fighting combined. hajime's inclined to believe the latter, but he was always an angel of hope. "thanks." he tosses the flaming sword back to hajime, tire iron clattering to the ground as hajime drops it to catch the thing.

"watch it," hajime scowls, and extinguishes the burning sword. "you could've put my eye out."
