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.

uhhh i kept trying to take this somewhere Not Sad but my brain was determined I'M SORRY

***

It's been a long day. Daichi steps out of the office, dragging his heels, stifling a yawn. He doesn't even hear someone calling his name at first, but when he realises who it is, he almost runs back into the building.

"Daichi! Daichi!"

Terushima sprints across the car park toward him, catching up before Daichi can decide which way to run.

"Teru," he says, frowning. They haven't spoken in three weeks, but even so, using his family name is probably a low blow. It connects, if the look on Terushima's face is anything to go by.

"Daichi," he says, and holds up a crumpled sheet of paper. "What the fuck?"

Daichi glances around; his colleagues are starting to leave work. "Let's not do this here," he mutters.

Terushima looks annoyed, but he shrugs and follows Daichi along the street to a small café. It's quiet at this hour, just a couple of students bent over their laptops. Daichi orders coffee for himself and Terushima, but Terushima interrupts partway through, insists on paying and carries the tray himself over to a table in the corner.

Daichi takes a seat. "What—"

"Why didn't you tell me?" Terushima asks, cutting across him. He produces the crumpled letter again and waves it in front of Daichi's face. "Why did you hide it?"

"Hide what?" Daichi asks, but he already knows the answer.

With a disdainful snort, Terushima shoves the letter at him and sits back in his seat, turning to look out of the window. Daichi unfolds it slowly, his heart in his throat. He feels like he can't swallow, but he forces himself to read the letter for what must be the hundredth time.

"I—" he says, and then stops, realising he has nothing to say.

Terushima shakes his head, still looking determinedly out of the window.

"Yuuji—"

"I can't believe you didn't tell me," Terushima says, his voice cracking. He reaches up and wipes his face angrily. "I thought—when you told me not to come around again, I thought you'd just gotten sick of my shit."

Daichi's stomach hurts. He wants to reach out and take Terushima's hands, but he can't move. "It—I thought—" Daichi sighs and puts his head in his hands. "I couldn't ask you to stick around. I didn't think you'd want to."

"What the fuck?" Terushima snaps, and Daichi looks up in surprise. A few heads in the café turn their way, but Terushima doesn't seem to notice. "You think—what, I'm just here for the good times? I'm not like that anymore."

"That's not—"

"If I just wanted to fuck around and get laid I wouldn't still be here."

"Yuuji—"

"Don't 'Yuuji' me," Terushima snarls, and when Daichi looks up there are tears rolling down his cheeks.

Heedless of the other café patrons, Daichi shuffles his chair around the side of the table and wraps his arms around Terushima. He can feel his own chest getting heavy, throat thick with the urge to cry, but he's done enough of that in the past few weeks. It's a small relief to comfort someone else instead.

"You fucking asshole," Terushima mumbles into his shoulder as Daichi holds him tightly. "How could you not tell me?"

"Shh, I'm sorry," Daichi whispers, running his fingers through Terushima's hair. It feels good to hold him again; the apartment has been far too quiet these past few weeks. "I'm sorry, I didn't want to hurt you."

Terushima chokes on wet laughter and pulls back, wiping his face on his sleeve. "Asshole," he mutters again, looking up at Daichi with wet eyes. "How're you so calm? You seem so okay with it."

"I'm not," Daichi says with a grim smile. "I'm—really not." His breath catches and he shakes himself; one of them crying in public is enough. "But—they caught it early, so—so there's a good chance—"

"Fuck," Terushima mutters, shaking his head. He sits back in his chair, his hand still resting in Daichi's in his lap. "So, uh—you still want me out?"

Daichi heaves a sigh. "I don't know. I—I mean, no, god, I—I want you, I just. This isn't fair to you—"

Terushima laughs loudly. "Are you fuckin' serious? None of this is fair, that's not the point. I wanna—" he laughs again, runs his fingers through his hair. "I dunno, whatever you need, you idiot. I'm not just here for the good times, you know?"

Daichi takes another deep breath and sits back in his seat. "Okay," he whispers, tears welling up despite his best efforts. "Okay then."

Terushima gives him a shaky smile, and leans in to kiss his cheek, cupping his head gently. "Okay then."
