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.

All scored content must be created new for this round.


Etc.
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).

Discussions of violence and death but none actually happen!

“That,” a voice said from behind Ryoga, “Is the weirdest disguise I’ve ever seen.”

Ryoga tightened his hold on his switchblade before he turned around. The large paws of the hippopotamus kigurimi effectively hid his weapons but nobody would be so foolish as to assume anyone else here was unarmed. This was a convention for serial murderers, after all, even if Ryoga privately thought that half the attendees were cops and another quarter were just wannabes.

“It’s effective though,” he said, the voice distorter built into his mask making his tones come out harsh and metallic. He faced a slim, tall person in a green Power Rangers costume. Everyone here had on a costume that covered their face and body completely. Leaving behind DNA was too much of a rookie move for the attendees. “It covers me completely, it gives me room to move and it’s not so thin that you can easily slash through it to spill blood.”

“It’s a little loose. Anyone could just grab a sleeve and pull you back,” the stranger countered.

“At which point I spin and slice over their throat Or bury a knife in their stomach, whatever’s more exposed.” Stomach wounds didn’t kill quickly, even when they penetrated a vital organ, but they’d be painful enough to distract all but the most determined pursuers.
“Doesn’t the head block your field of vision?” The stranger asked after giving a nod of acknowledgment at Ryoga’s killer instinct.

“Not at all,” Ryoga said, then corrected himself, “...Except from the top. And most people don’t look upwards anyway for ambushes.”

“True,” the Power Ranger said. “Are you wearing body armor under it?”

“That’s a very personal question to ask,” Ryoga demurred as he narrowed his eyes suspiciously behind his mask. Was the Power Ranger turning him into a mark? Later, during the Cosplay Killing Contest, would the Power Ranger come after him specifically?

“You could just say yes whether or not you are,” the Power Ranger said. He shrugged, cocking his helmeted head to a side. “I was wondering if you were one of the cops. Your costume’s dumb enough for them but they’ve all got body armor on underneath. Same brand for all of them.”

“Hey!” Ryoga protested, the voice distorter doing a poor job of demonstrating his outrage. “It is not a dumb costume. It is creative. Much more creative than wearing a cosplay of a Power Ranger. Nobody even likes that show!”

“Nobody,” the Power Ranger replied with the attitude of someone who had a winning argument, “Likes hippos either.”
