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.

Somehow it became a Mrs. and Mrs. Smith situation.

***

Yura had played this game before, but rarely with someone who could match her moves so well and never on her home turf.

This was her target’s home turf as well, the home they had shared for the last five years. That was until she found out her wife was working for a rival agency, a difference they were now attempting to negotiate with firearms.

They had both liked the house for the same reasons, an unspoken one being how difficult it was to corner someone in it. The whole time they hunted each other room to room neither was fast enough to get a shot at the other’s back, or front for that matter.

It was pretty clear Sonora really was who Yura’s intel said she was, but that left five years of details she was missing. How did she live beside someone for that long and never realize?

Maybe Sonora was going through the same thing. She wasn’t shy, letting Yura track her by her voice. “So where were you really last Christmas?”

“I was visiting my sister,” Yura snapped. She worked so hard to keep her family out of this. “Where were you?”

Sonora laughed. “Work. Sorry, Honey.”

When Yura tracked Sonora up to their bedroom she didn’t let herself think for an instant that she had Sonora cornered. She eased her way inside, ready for some sort of trap. There was no way Sonora would let herself be cornered like this, but there was no sign that she’d doubled around either.

Yura’s reflexes were exactly equal to Sonora’s surprise. Sonora had climbed out the window and into the next room, the better to get a jump on Yura from behind. For an instant they were caught in a stalemate, weapons trained on each other, and Yura had time to look right into Sonora’s eyes.

Sonora shot first. She fired straight up, calling down a rain of plaster dust and nothing else. Yura almost expected the sky to fall.

Yura was left with one last shot, and she hated to lose. Sonora’s eyes looked like a challenge.

Her finger was almost too stiff to pry off the trigger. There was a part that wanted petulantly to keep fighting, but she knew when she one more tally mark on her record was worthless. Sonora was too precious.

For a moment he tongue was also too stiff in her mouth to say anything, but what would she even say?

Sonora leaned forward and kissed her on the nose the way she did in the mornings and whatever was holding Yura back shattered. She flung herself at Sonora and kissed her as if she’d been desperate to do that for years.

Sonora couldn’t seem to decide if she wanted to kiss Yura back or talk. “Honey, I love you too, but,” and Yura wasn’t sure of the words she accidentally crushed between their mouths, but it sounded something like ‘blew up the kitchen.’

Yura reluctantly gave her a little room to breathe.

“We should probably turn off the gas.”

This made a small space for Yura to think about what she was doing. This wasn’t the woman she thought she married. It was like falling in love with an ember before feeling the full heat of the bonfire. Sonora was so much brighter and stronger than she knew.

“You’re reckless,” Yura said, once they were sure the remains of the kitchen wouldn’t explode. She couldn’t imagine Sonora going for mutual destruction on purpose, but still.

“And you’re kind of ruthless, aren’t you? I like that.”

Sonora kissed her again, more slowly this time, and they fell back into each other.

They ended up making a pillow fort with what was left of the couch and taking shelter together. Clothes were tangled into their nest. Yura had felt more naked laying down her gun in front of someone she could acknowledge as dangerous.

Sonora mapped her body with kisses, as if everything familiar needed to be explored all over again. She laughed when Yura was impatient, or bit, or dragged her fingers over skin too greedily. She seduced Yura right out of the serious mind-set she’d pushed herself into for work and into joy at simply being together.

“Now what?” Yura eventually asked. She had never been too forgiving when it came to someone holding out a leonine contract. Now that the matter of ‘her life or yours’ had been settled between them, it seemed they had a contract to burn.

That was assuming she ever pried herself away from Sonora. Sonora’s skin was too warm to move away from, and she felt contentment soaking all the way to her core.

“Hm. Now that I know I kind of wish I’d told you.”

Yura shrugged it off. “Secret identities are secret for a reason.”

“But it feels like a waste, taking so long to see this side of you.” Sonora rolled onto her back and stretched before pulling Yura on top of her and declaring, “I think we need a second honeymoon.”

“I think we have to deal with some other things first.”

“I’m not saying we won’t have a good time knocking heads together first, but don’t you want to spend some time getting to know each other all over again?” Sonora’s smile didn’t even pretend to be innocent and Yura, who would have liked to think she was immune, had to laugh.

“I think I like the sound of that.”

***

Tatsuya hasn’t felt so clearly the open cavity of his mouth, the space and the stump where a tongue used to be, since the first day. The bottoms of his feet (exclaimed over, how could they be softer than a baby’s) have since hardened; he is used to the steps he takes feeling like knives up through his ankles, ever time he walks, every time he dances. The stab is sharp, a little duller, a reminder of what he’s done to himself, all of the things he had thrown away (status, power, speech, song, his entire life).

And Taiga, shorn of his brilliant red hair, Taiga, whom Tatsuya had thought he had lost forever, had not seen in so long—Taiga has given him a choice. A dagger, of the sea, of the same witch who had given Tatsuya the opportunity to be here, to come to the surface, to live as a human. A farce, really, that’s all this had been the whole time. A terrible parody, in imitation of a real human. It’s got nothing to do with his inability to talk, but more his unfamiliarity with everything, the way he can’t catch on quite quickly enough, the way his own royal manners are no good up here. A different culture, something he cannot translate himself to.

It had been him all along, him who had rescued the prince and he’d thought that perhaps the prince would see, would recognize it. He had thought, sometimes, a gleam in the prince’s violet eyes had signified acknowledgement. He’s clever, clever enough to recognize something he knows when he sees it, or apparently not. He only recognizes the one he had seen, but some things cannot be seen; some things can be felt. But all of this feeling is on Tatsuya’s side; he is alone and he has not held up his end of the bargain.

Take the easy out, take Taiga’s sacrifice. Go back, face the shame. Kill Atsushi, lying so sweetly asleep here. Use the dagger.

He can’t. It’s not so simple as that; Tatsuya’s burned the bridges behind him and he’s not about to clamor back up; he has made this situation what it is and the consequences are his to shoulder, until he dissolves. Merfolk are not meant for more than this.

He closes the door behind him, walking to the edge of the deck. The sea, below, is everything he has known. The foam, blowing away, that he will become. Tatsuya hurls the dagger into the sea; there are only a few hours left before sunrise.

trainjacking au set...sometime between the edwardian and interwar eras; they're in the uk somehow, idk but yeah _(:3/

***

“You know,” Shuuzou says, his voice almost drowned out by the rattling, “Maybe this isn’t such a good idea after all.”

“Fuck good ideas,” Tatsuya replies, still fiddling with the engine. “This is a great idea.”

Shuuzou, after some deliberation, supposes he is right.

At least Tatsuya hadn’t gotten the idea of hijacking a zeppelin (the mere thought of flying skeeves the hell out of Shuuzou, and it’s not like either of them have the expertise to land something like that.) People like them belong on the ground, where it’s easier to not entertain the thought that he’ll accidentally fall out of a carriage miles up in the air.

Still, the steam is annoying—Tatsuya stands up, wiping away the sweat from his brow, and looks back at Shuuzou. “You find it yet?”

“No,” Shuuzou says. “Maybe you dropped it back in the carriage.”

The train makes a turn, and Tatsuya stumbles a little, but holds on enough that he doesn’t fall over. He’s gotta admit, Tatsuya looks pretty damn good in a conductor’s uniform, shining buttons and tailored jacket and all. It’s easy enough for him to pass as anything as long as he turns the charm on, and that enough had fooled the stationmasters a few stops back. Nobody’s been bold enough to impersonate a conductor and take off with an entire train before—not until them, anyway.

Tatsuya eyes him appreciatively as he feeds more coal into the boiler. “Nice look.”

Shuuzou rolls his eyes; he knows he’s got coal dust all over his face, probably some on his sleeves too. “Yeah, yeah, keep looking.”

(The real conductor and engineer wouldn’t miss their outfits, really, being knocked out and tied up in the luggage hold, but that’s another story altogether.)

“It’s not that important anyway,” Tatsuya says as they approach the bridge, the pines lining either side giving away to open fields. If he were to look outside, Shuuzou knows, the wild heather would be in bloom at this time of the year. But they don’t have time for that right now. “Maybe they won’t lock us up if they catch us, since it’s—“

“One of your signature looks, yeah, I know.” Shuuzou leans over to kiss him, ignoring his halfhearted protests of Shuu, I can’t look presentable like this. “I like you better like this.”

“Stealing a train belonging to your old boss and taking off through the Scottish wilderness together, or me in this uniform?”

“The latter,” Shuuzou replies wryly. Akashi would not hesitate to pack them off to the gallows (or at least, have them spend a few good years behind bars) if he catches them—and he probably would, sooner or later. They can’t keep this up forever, unless of course, they steal some other ride that would get them far away from this place and homebound.

But for now they’re free, so why not enjoy the ride? The train rattles as it crosses the stone bridge, the water rushing beneath them urgent. Tatsuya’s looking out the window at the receding field of wildflowers, and he’s got Tatsuya’s eyepatch burning a hole inside his pocket, safe from harm.

Shuuzou thinks, as Tatsuya looks back to grin at him, that he’ll keep it for a while longer.

Creeeeepy. Because I’m bad at anything else. Unhealthy relationships, dependency, exploitation.

***

Heath doesn’t run anymore. He barely even walks.

The shoes that Tomoe keeps putting him in are impossible to Stride in and only just possible to walk in.

Photographers love them, magazines love them, outlets love them and stars love them. Nobody ever comments on how the people that wear them are always posed with someone at their side to lean on, someone who can steady them and hold them up.

The people that wear them are all people who understand a price tag comes with everything and true luxuries cost more than money.

Love, for example, is bought by Heath practicing for hours in crystal sneakers until he can lift his legs gracefully and glide without clunking his feet down in a way that’ll look unattractive to the photographers that’ll be in the front rows of the fashion shows. There is no give in the crystal, no support, but they have been fashioned to fit his feet so perfectly that his feet don’t slide around inside.

There’s an invisible seam down the back, hidden amidst the sparkling diamond cuts of the crystal, where the sneakers are superglued shut and then the glue is melted off by nailpolish remover. Heath learns how to do it on his own so he can walk around the house in the crystal sneakers while Tomoe sleeps.

He can’t practice until his feet bleed. He can’t develop callouses. The crystal has an odd magnifying-capturing effect, distorting the pieces of Heath’s feet so that the shoes look shot through with slices of pink.

Tomoe cups Heath’s crystal-sneaker-clad foot in his hand and wonders out loud about applying some nail polish, something blue and pale to counterbalance Heath’s skin.

Heath smiles shakily down at him and concentrates on balancing on only one foot, on not screaming with pain.

*

“There’s something wrong with you lately,” Kyousuke says and takes Heath’s hand in his. “This isn’t how a relationship is supposed to be.”

Heath smiles at him but doesn’t hear. His feet are throbbing and the fountain across from the cafe looks so tempting. He could bathe his feet in its waters for just a little. If anyone catches him, it’ll make for a good photo - Heath relaxed in public, the edges of his trousers wet, his red stilettoes on the edge of the fountain. Tomoe’ll like it.

“Heath? Are you even listening to me?”

“Why don’t we have our meal at the fountain?” Heath asks, looking back at Kyousuke. “It’s such a nice day. Let’s ask for everything to go.”

*

The photos are of him and Kyousuke, laughing together and talking, seated on the edge of the fountain with Kyousuke and Heath’s trousers rolled up so they can both bathe their feet in the water.

The tabloids run it under titles like ‘AN END TO THE PERFECT COUPLE?’ and ‘FRIENDS OR MORE?’.

Tomoe says nothing but Heath knows he’s angry.

*


At the next shoe, one of the crystal sneakers shatter. Shards dig into Heath’s foot, into his ankle; he raises up onto his toes to keep his gait even and walks on, gaze fixed on Tomoe and blood smearing over the runway.

Blood always take the front pages; if the publicity from this makes Tomoe forgive him, then Heath will count every scar and every drop of blood as worthy sacrifices.
