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).

"Stop moving!" Toudou ordered.

"I wouldn't be moving if you weren't trying to poke my eye out," Arakita retorted.

"For the hundredth time, Arakita, I'm not poking your eye out. It's called eyeliner, and if you don't get it at least somewhere close to your actual eye, then it looks ridiculous."

"Then why don't we just forget this whole thing and I'll go onstage like this!? Then it can't come out looking ridiculous, and I don't have to sit here while you stab me with all of your various implements of torture."

Toudou gasped in horror. "You can't do that! Do you have any idea what stage lights do to your complexion? If you go onstage like this, the lights will wash you out so badly everyone in the audience will start wondering whether you're feeling okay. And that would break one of the key roles of performing; entertain the audience, and no matter what, make every show the best possible show that it can be for them."

"Fine, fine," Arakita grumbled. "Let's just get this damn torture session over already."

"This is far from a torture session, you know?" Toudou said. "If I really wanted to torture you, I'd do something about your eyebrows, or maybe the hair that keeps peeking out from under the edge of your costume in the second scene."

"Just do it!" Arakita said, cutting Toudou off before he could say anything else.

"Hold still this time," Toudou warned. "If you move and end up getting mascara in your eye, it's not my fault, understand?"

Arakita gritted his teeth and closed his eyes. "I'll do my best," he said, "but if someone keeps stabbing me in the eye, it makes it difficult." It was bad enough already that his entire face felt glued in place by the thick foundation Toudou had layered on to start. And he wasn't even going to think about the false eyelashes, or how he was going to get them back off without sacrificing all of his own eyelashes in the process. He had been distracting himself by letting his mind wander here and there, but he was running out of things to think about, and judging by the number of brushes and tubes and bottles on the table, Toudou was only just getting started.

The brush of Toudou's lips across the top of his ear distracted him from whatever other thoughts may have been in his head.

"Think about that instead," Toudou whispered. "Let's try this again."
