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.

oikawa in ushijima's hotel room with a vial of poison.

Ship: ushijima wakatoshi / oikawa tooru

Major tags: graphic depictions of violence/gore, sexual content
Other tags: secret agents au, alcohol and drinking, mentions of choking, poison, murderous intent, oikawa in a dress, guns, this is probably dubious in several ways?

oikawa's first of many mistakes was probably thinking ushijima was a soft target.

***

Oikawa hates losing. Oikawa hates losing to Ushijima even more, and he's not sure what kind of win scenario he can untangle from Ushijima's hands that are so large and so warm as they grip his ass.

Mild sexual content! Also went the assassins + corporate espionage route.


***

It was a very nice hotel room. Clearly Ushijima’s company believed in splashing out to keep their executives happy.

Personally, Oikawa had found that it wasn’t the executives who committed corporate espionage anywhere near as often as the lower-level employees. They were the ones whose paychecks didn’t stretch quite far enough and whose loyalty to the company was shaken by layoffs and lack of bonuses. They were the ones desperate enough to pass on information or steal and piece together shredded documents.

An angry secretary with access to her boss’ e-mail could do just as much damage as the boss could.

Of course, killing the secretary wouldn’t cripple the organization the same way that the loss of a good manager or executive would.

Ushijima Wakatoshi was too loyal to be stolen away from his company. He’d been headhunted, offered an extremely generous salary with excellent healthcare, long holidays and a full pension - but he’d declined. Every single time.

Oikawa specialized in reading people and he had been the one to regretfully inform his employers that there was no way Ushijima would be turned against his company. His loyalty was a solid, unshakeable thing. To keep trying to lure him away was a waste of time and resources.

And so the decision was made.

Loyalty came with its own risks. Oikawa’s employers needed Ushijima removed from Shira Inc. and if they could not hire him away from the company, it would still benefit them to ensure he could no longer lead Shira.

That, through a series of meetings to negotiate pay, had resulted in Oikawa approaching Ushijima for, as he put it, “One last try to convince you to join Seijoh!”

The talks in the bar had been brief and curtailed by necessity; eventually, as Oikawa had planned, the growing noise had forced Ushijima to ask Oikawa up to his room.

The vial of poison was light, sewn into the seams of his jacket hem and practically unnoticeable. When Ushijima excused himself to use the toilet, Oikawa saw his chance and quickly tipped the contents of the vial into the cup of coffee that Ushijima had half-finished. He secreted the vial back into its hiding place and was sipping at his own coffee by the time the bathroom door opened.

He looked up, ready with a smile and a casual comment, and froze.

Ushijima was utterly, completely and rather impressively naked.

Apparently Oikawa had misinterpreted why he’d been invited up.


...Well. The coffee was probably cold by now. Killing Ushijima could wait a few hours. Oikawa deserved a reward for his good work so far anyway.

BETTER YET, Oikawa's supposed to be there to convince Ushijima, right? Imagine if Ushijima thinks that Oikawa slept with him TO convince him and is all, "I'm not convinced yet, I need another round" afterwards and Oikawa is just all "...okay i can put off killing him until we come again". And ends up passing out frm Too Much Sex so Ushijima escapes death thanks to his big dick.
