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.

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).

Warnings for illness, angst, possible future death.

“Hey. Shittykawa, wake up.” Iwaizumi poked Oikawa’s cheek, albeit much more gently than usual. The pallor of his friend worried him almost as much as the numerous machines whose soft beeps and green lines offered proof that Oikawa was still alive.

Oikawa’s eyes opened slowly, the chocolate brown of his eyes dark with drowsiness and a little hazy still. “...Iwa-chan?”

His gaze drifted from Iwaizumi’s face to the cluster of brilliant helium balloons that Iwaizumi was holding and slowly, a smile spread over his face.

“You brought me balloons?” He asked, tapping the remote for the bed to make him sit up a little. Having to stare up at his visitors all the time very quickly had become more humiliating than Oikawa could bear, even if sitting up exhausted him so much that the visits had to be cut short.

“Of course not,” Iwaizumi snorted as he started to tie the balloons to the arm of the chair so they’d be on eye-level with Oikawa. “They’re gifts from the whole team.”

“Oh, I see.” Oikawa’s smile didn’t look disappointed in the least, Iwaizumi noted. “Much better than all the flowers that my fans sent. The nurse wouldn’t let me keep them.”

“I know,” Iwaizumi said gruffly as he pushed the balloons down so Oikawa could see them more clearly. “I asked what sort of presents you would be allowed - no food, no flowers, no soaps that might contain irritants.”

Oikawa hugged a dog balloon to his chest and Iwaizumi said, “That one’s from Kentaro. The string’s slippery - it kept trying to get away.”

“Just like him,” Oikawa said, letting go and eyeing a pink teddy bear instead. “Which one is yours, Iwa-chan?”

“...” Silently, trying to scowl in his usual manner, Iwaizumi pulled down a red heart with GET WELL SOON written in silver letters and passed it to Oikawa.

“How sweet,” Oikawa cooed with a faint shiver of a laugh. “You’re giving me your heart.”

“I’d give you a lung for real if I could,” Iwaizumi muttered gruffly, stuffing his hands into his pockets. They weren’t even a blood type match, let alone close enough for organ transplants; a stupid helium balloon heart was the best that he could do.

Oikawa nuzzled his cheek against the balloon and smiled up at Iwaizumi even as the edges of strain started to appear at the corners of his mouth and eyes.

“I’d rather have your heart, Iwa-chan,” he said quietly, arms wrapped around it. “This doesn’t hurt you to give.”

Stupid, Iwaizumi nearly said, stopping himself just in time. What did Oikawa think it would do to Iwaizumi if he didn’t get better?

pets you gently Thank you for prompting this. Out of respect for your tender heart, I won't tell you imagine a funeral where each of the teammates releases a balloon painted to look like a volleyball into the sky.

But yeah, this hurt to write. Oikawa's just so exhausted and trying so hard to be himself anyway.
