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.

All scored content must be created new for this round.


Etc.
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).

"These are yours," Nishina said, holding out a pair of goggles.

"What?"

"They're yours. You left them after the Interhigh."

"Why are you giving them to me? I don't swim anymore." Kawasaki turned away, and that should have been the end of the conversation, except Nishina had never been one for giving up. Nishina grabbed Kawasaki's sleeve and pulled him back.

"What are you doing!?" Kawasaki demanded. "I'm not an athlete anymore. I don't need them, and I don't know why you kept them."

"I kept them for you! I looked up to you, you know. We all did. And then after the Interhigh you just left. No coming back to watch practices. Nothing. You were just gone. I heard nothing from you for two years, and then suddenly you reappear as the coach for Higashigaoka. That doesn't sound like not an athlete anymore to me."

"You don't know anything," Kawasaki snapped, yanking his sleeve out of Nishina's hand. "Don't talk about things you don't know."

"I know more than you think," Nishina replied. "I didn't then, but Coach told me about it after you showed for that first practice meet. And most of us suspected anyway."

"Then you know I'm not getting back in the pool. It's over. That's over, and there's no going back."

"I don't think you mean that. You say you're done with swimming, but it's not done with you. You wouldn't be coaching Higashigaoka otherwise."

"I coach," Kawasaki said. "I don't swim. There's a difference."

"There's a difference because you want there to be one. You're drawing this hard line so you can keep trying to act like the past is behind you and you've moved on. Well guess what? You haven't, and you're only hurting yourself." Nishina hand thudded into Kawasaki's chest, still holding onto the goggles. "Get back in the damn pool, Ryouya-san. It's time."

"I'm. Not. An. Athlete."

"Maybe not, but you're a swimmer. You can try to run away all you like, but you're not going to change that."

"Can I be a swimmer without being an athlete?" Kawasaki's voice was softer now, and more hesitant that Nishina had ever heard him.

"Only you can answer that," Nishina said, "but I think somewhere, deep down, you already know. There's a spare swimsuit in my locker; I think we're about the same size. I'll be here for another half hour at least."

Kawasaki didn't reply, but when he left, he took his goggles with him.

Nishina let out a long sigh as he slipped into the pool. There was nothing left for him to do except wait, but he suspected he'd have company again before he left. Or maybe he just hoped for the company. It was hard to tell sometimes.
