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).

"I've taken into account your feedback from last time and adjusted the schedule accordingly," Inui said as he adjusted his glasses. "I left new copies of the schedule on your pillows; please take a look at them and let me know if you have any questions."

Oishi and Eiji exchanged glances as they picked up the thick stacks of paper from the bed. The piles weren't quite as large as they had been a week earlier, but they still contained an alarming number of pages.

"Ummmm, Inui," Eiji began.

"You said last time that you felt the schedule was overly structured and didn't leave enough room for spontaneity and the natural development of events. I've taken that into account with this iteration. Not only are there fewer nodes overall; there are also more nodes that allow branching for multiple outcomes. It should allow for significantly more flexibility."

Eiji looked over Oishi's shoulder as Oishi flipped through the pages. It took them a minute, but then all of the pieces fell into place.

"Inui," Oishi said, "this is a flowchart."

"Of course it is. That's what I just said."

"Inui, you made a flowchart for sex. Didn't we go through this after last time."

Inui nodded. "You said that you felt excessive prescription was counterproductive toward the end goal. This new plan should remedy that. My calculations said there was a 99% chance this plan would be superior to the last one."

Eiji and Oishi exchanged looks again. The statement may have been true, but they both thought it was missing the point.

"Inui," Eiji said finally, "what did your calculations say was the chance we enjoyed this more than going with no schedule at all?"

Inui looked horrified. "I didn't run that calculation," he said. "How can you operate without sufficient data?"

"How about we try it once?" Oishi suggested. "If you don't like it, we can go back, but spontaneity is good sometimes."

"No...scheduleā€¦?"

"No schedule. No data. Just what feels natural," Oishi said.

Inui looked decidedly nervous as he nodded. "Just this once, I guess," he said.

"Great!" Eiji exclaimed. "We'll make sure you have a good time. Trust us. Here, put your glasses on the nightstand so they don't get hurt by mistake."

Eiji snatched off Inui's glasses, and Inui would have made a rather undignified noise, except Oishi kissed him right then, and that short-circuited whatever calculation he had been about to start.
