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.

“So,” Chris murmurs softly, pinky brushing Tanba’s where they’re both buried under the sand. “What are you going to do?”

Tanba looks at him, cast in a golden glow by the setting sun. His hair is loose, shaggy enough now to cover the tops of his ears and hang over his eyes.

“I don’t know.” Tanba swallows, tucking his tongue in on itself. “I don’t know, Chris.”

“It’s an amazing offer, Kouichirou.”

“Yeah. It is.” Tanba turns his eyes back to the ocean, watching the water recede and return. “It’s full tuition, guaranteed starter position. Hiroshima’s really far away but my parents think-”

“What do you think?” Tanba turns his head and Chris is staring at him intently, tawny eyes glittering. “What do you want?”

What does he want?

“You’re going to Waseda,” Tanba replies carefully, “Do. Do you want me to go with you?”

Chris blinks at him, a frown tugging at the corners of his mouth.

“Kouichirou, I didn’t ask you what you thought I wanted.” It sounds like an admonishment, and Tanba’s cheeks burn. “It doesn’t matter what I want, this is your life. What’s going to make you happy?”

It’s not an easy question. Being with Chris would make him happy. He loves him. He loves him and it’s exhausting and painful to hide it and he wants to keep playing alongside him - to finally be a battery.

Hiroshima is so far away. But he - it’s - he would start, and -

“I want…” Tanba squeezes his eyes shut. The paper crushed in his right hand feels like it’s cutting into him, tiny, insistent lacerations that prick at the truth he already knows. “I want. To play baseball. And I want to be the ace.”

When he opens his eyes, Chris is smiling. “You will be.”

Tanba’s throat is suddenly very tight. “I’m sorry.”

Chris shakes his head, scooting closer to Tanba on the sand and slotting their hands together. “Don’t be sorry. You’re going to be incredible. I’m happy for you.”

Looking down at their joined hands, Tanba sucks in a pained breath, unable to fight the slow drip of tears from the corners of his eyes.

“Chris,” he whispers. “I’m in love with you.”

“Yes,” Chris whispers back, other hand tenderly cupping Tanba’s cheek. “I know. I know.”

The ocean crashes in time with Tanba’s heart, thudding and bruising itself against his ribs.

His lips are wet, and taste like salt.
