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.

"You're such a robot, Tobio-chan," Oikawa huffs, slapping him on the back a little too hard. It sends Kageyama stumbling forward a few steps before he regains his balance, and Oikawa looks on with a light frown. He's never quite managed to make that movement look natural; he stops too suddenly, his knees bending too sharply before he straightens up again.

He looks away when Kageyama catches him watching, and huffs louder, with annoyance. "You don't have to act like it all the time, you know. It doesn't matter if the rest of the pilots know. Just act like yourself."

"But it's like you said," Kageyama replies. "I am a robot."

"That's not what I mean," Oikawa mutters, shaking his head, but drops it at that. Kageyama is stubborn at the best of times, and this isn't something Oikawa is willing to waste his time on.



He doesn't seem quite so robotic when they're on a mission. He's full of life then, and Oikawa wishes that he could stand back and watch, but he's got his own work to do. Space, for all the beauty that it held back when he lived on earth, has now become his battlefield. It's still beautiful in its own way, but it's the difference between stained glass, and the broken shards of glass that are smoothed out by the sea.

Kageyama in battle is the second kind of beautiful, fierce and direct and operating on pure instinct. It makes him more human than Oikawa has ever seen him, his rage, his satisfaction, his pride. Oikawa has never felt more similar to Kageyama in his entire life, and he doesn't know what to do with that thought.



At first, Oikawa thinks it's the anger that does it. He tries to pull it out of Kageyama, needling him at every chance he gets.

Kageyama, for all that he's quick to anger, quick to frown, never does anything beyond that. He brushes off all of Oikawa's attempts, picking up his pace when they cross paths, avoiding eye contact as much as he can.

"You're only part robot," Oikawa tries, when he manages to corner Kageyama enough to have a conversation with him. "You act like it's the only thing you are. There's some humanity in you, I'm pretty sure of it."

"Are you looking for my humanity?" Kageyama asks at length, "Or are you looking for yours?"

Oikawa barks out a loud laugh. "You can't get me with that philosophical bullshit, Tobio-chan. Nice try."

Kageyama blinks at him. "I made you laugh."

"I'm laughing at you," Oikawa clarifies. "Not with you."



Days later, Oikawa bursts into the medical bay where Kageyama is lying on the bed, a mess of exposed circuitry.

"Oikawa-san," Kageyama greets, still able to lift his head off the pillow. "I'll be ready for rewiring tomorrow. Thank you for saving me."

"I didn't save you, idiot," Oikawa mutters, walking up to Kageyama's bedside. "You still got hit, didn't you?"

"Not very badly," Kageyama replies, and that's a lie. Kageyama doesn't have anything left to pilot any more. The only reason that he's managed to get back at all is because Oikawa caught him before he could float away. A human would have died in the time that Kageyama spent in the vacuum of space. Kageyama is more than that, though, and he's still here.

"Idiot," Oikawa declares again, and runs his fingers through Kageyama's hair with a disbelieving laugh.

"Are you still laughing at me, or are you laughing with me?" Kageyama asks.

"Idiot." It sounds far too fond this time. He pushes his hand into Kageyama's face. "You're not even laughing."
