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.

Suga wasn't surprised to find Asahi in the locker room after practice. It had surprised him the first several time he had come back from doing one final pass through the gym for forgotten bags or misplaced volleyballs only to find Asahi still sitting on a bench after everyone else had left. It had taken some time, but Asahi had finally explained that some of their teammates were too loud and made him nervous when he just wanted to relax after practice, so he came up with excuses to avoid going to the convenience store with them all the time. And in any case, he liked the chance to walk back home with just Suga on days when the rest of the team hadn't waited.

That had been in the beginning when pulling a direct answer from Asahi about anything was like pulling teeth, and when it was almost as likely to send Asahi down a nervous spiral as it was to get a useful reply. Now, several months later, Asahi was a lot more comfortable with himself and with the team, and he was far more likely to ask for what he wanted.

Like today when he showered after practice and then sat on a bench in the locker room waiting for Suga to finish.

"Will you do my hair for me?" he asked when Suga walked in.

"Of course," Suga replied with a smile as he sat down on the bench and nudged Asahi off to sit between his legs. Asahi had already picked out a scrunchie for him, and he slipped it around his own wrist for safekeeping. Asahi's hair was different from his own--thick and heavy and with a slight curl that had a tendency to fly out in all directions if it was brushed too aggressively.

Suga had learned that early on on and had quickly settled on finger combing instead. Asahi practically melted into his touch as he worked his fingers into Asahi's scalp as he gathered the loose strands back into a ponytail. It wasn't difficult, but he took his time, spending far longer than he needed before he finally tied off Asahi's hair with the scrunchie. It had turned into something of a ritual between them--a chance to decompress after practice and have a few moments of intimacy when they wouldn't be missed.

"Thank you, Suga," Asahi said, letting Suga give him a hand up.

"You're welcome, Asahi," Suga replied, resting his head against Asahi's collarbone just for a minute and letting the familiar scent of Asahi's shower gel and deodorant melt away the last of the tension he had been holding.
