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.

Oikawa claws himself out from the ruins covering the planetside.

“Go fuck ‘em up, Oikawa,” Iwaizumi says quietly to him as his blood streaked eyes close; he’s half-trapped under the rubble and the atmosphere is thinning out in a high, desperate whistle. Oikawa did not make it to the galactic top by cowering whenever the entire sky falls, but for one breaking moment, as his lungs tighten hot and awful with Iwaizumi’s last stuttered breath, he feels maybe this is it. Maybe this is as far and as high as he will ever go.

Iwaizumi’s hand is already growing cold in his; the chill of space is seeping into their bones even here on the ground, and angry at the stars, angry at the unattainable sky, Oikawa sings.

From the stomach is his war song, love like a knife in his hands; from the lungs he lets go the slow, long ache of surviving alone. Explosions boom against the deep black of space, arced so high above his head they’re like a beat thrumming against the palm of his hands held up to pull them down, and Oikawa can feel those, too, the almost comforting warmth of nuclear fire and missiles blossoming red and orange and that white-hot of novas battering the alien armaments hanging in low earth orbit. He knows one of those must be Kageyama, still alive out there somewhere, probably too stupid and talented to just die any anonymous pilot’s death, but everything moves so slow here, it almost feels like a dream. Like moving underwater, like the free-fall of gravity gone wrong, like-- Oikawa listens to his own shallow panting as he gulps down the remaining air on each word, survive this, he needs to survive this, too, and his lip curls at the thought ending it all on a high note.

Somewhere between Earth and the sea, 9PM, don’t be late.

Oikawa’s hand sends it out like the challenge it is, and it’s almost annoying at how quickly his mind goes quiet with the rhythm of Kageyama responding. Oikawa-san, I can feel you. Kageyama’s heart beats in time with his, like an explosion strung staccato between stars, like the red heat of his VF breaking through the curve of the atmosphere. Oikawa-san, I’m coming to get you.

“Better make it quick then, Tobio-chan,” Oikawa says.

Oikawa is lightheaded under the falling stars flaring in the dark, and when he watches one of them break off from the others and streak toward his coordinates like Kageyama has a map of the sky stitched right into his heart, Oikawa can’t help but feel something like reassurance.
