Bonus Round 7: Free For All

Free-For-All


Let's finish SASO 2017 with a bang. This bonus bonus round allows any kind of prompt imaginable in any format. The sky's the limit!



This round is CLOSED as of 29 August @ 7PM EDT. Late comments are screened and will not receive points.


Please read this whole post before commenting to ensure that your team gets the most points possible.

 


RULES
  • Submit prompts by commenting to this post with literally any kind of prompt, along with any ship/ot3/etc. from one of our nominated fandoms, with the following caveats:
    • Large image prompts should be thumbnailed and linked to, as explained here.
    • Fanart/fanfiction/fanwork prompts are only allowed if you created the fanwork yourself or if you have explicit permission to use it, and proof of permission must be linked to in your prompt header.
    • Quote prompts can come from almost anything, but please don't quote personal conversations you've had or overheard.
    • Reposting prompts is fine, but be respectful and keep crediting in mind. A prompt belongs to the person who posted it to this round, and who can fill it is determined by whether or not they are on that person's team.
      • If reposting a br2 (tic tac toe) prompt, please post each prompt square as its own individual comment. Posting tic tac toe boards wholesale will crash our br scorer and the bonus doesn't apply for this round, anyway.
    • Your prompt MUST include some kind of relationship. Platonic relationships are indicated by an "&" between the names (e.g., Akira & Hikaru). Non-platonic relationships use "/" (e.g., Akira/Hikaru). Please don't say "Any pairing," either!
  • Besides that, if you want to prompt something, regardless of format—even formats not previously allowed in SASO—go right ahead. If you're unsure you can ask us for clarification, but tbh just go for the gold.
  • Fill prompts by replying to the prompt with a fanwork.
  • Remember to follow the general bonus round rules, outlined here.
  • Here is a prompt/fill index for your convenience.


FORMAT
Bonus round shenanigans all happen in the comments below. Brand-new works only, please.

Required Work Minimums:
  • 400 words (prose)
  • 400px by 400px (art)

  • 8 tracks (fanmixes)
There is no max work cap.

If PROMPTING:If FILLING:If FILLING as a TEAM GRANDSTAND participant:
PROMPT: TEAM [YOUR SHIP]
  • Replace [YOUR SHIP] with the name of the team you belong to. Any way you format it is fine.

Posts not using this format will be understood to be unofficial discussion posts, regardless of what they contain. They, like all comments in this community, are subject to the code of conduct.

If you see anyone breaking the code of conduct (e.g., causing drama, being rude) anywhere (not just DW), please contact the mods immediately.


SCORING
These numbers apply to your team as a whole, not each individual teammate. Make as many prompts/fills as you want!

For prompts: 5 points each (maximum of 50 prompt points per team per round)

For fills:
First 4 fills by any member of your team: 20 points each
Fills 5-10: 15 points each
Fills 11-20: 5 points each
Fills 21-50: 2 points each
Fills 51+: 1 point each

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).

Have a question? Check The FAQ first. If you still need help, feel free to contact the mods. Happy fanworking!

“You don’t have a manager. I’d like to apply.”

“We don’t need a manager,” Riko says.

“I know you don’t,” says the pink-haired first year in front of her. “But playing without one is an unnecessary handicap.”

*

The thing is, and Riko will never admit it, they do need her. Not to exist, not to be a team; six players and a manager had been enough for that at the beginning. But they need Satsuki to win, Satsuki and her strategic mindset honed behind one of the finest middle-school coaching staffs in the country, Satsuki who’s methods and training feel a little like cheating they’re so good. Kuroko is their Teikou player, their quote-unquote miracle (whether he is or isn’t, well, that’s an unnecessary distinction); Kagami’s their ace; Fukuda, Kawahara, and Furihata will ascend someday. But Satsuki is their centerpiece, the caramel truffle in the chocolate box with extra drizzle on top.

She’s not afraid to stand up to Riko, and Riko hates her for it, except when she’s right, infuriatingly pretty, a swish of her hair and a note on her clipboard, the lip biting thing she does that has to be on purpose, even though they’d all be looking at her anyway. At first, Riko thinks she might be ugly jealous of Satsuki, the attention she gets from Hyuuga and Koganei; she refuses to let that get the better of her. Really, though, it takes a while to figure out but she’s jealous of Hyuuga and Koganei, how Satsuki’s luring them in. She doesn't want to be lured and ensnared, as easy a target as a simple-minded high school boy. But she wants to be worthy of the attempt in Satsuki’s eyes, and what does that say about her?

*

Perhaps that says less than the victories they achieve, Riko calling the shots and Satsuki gently correcting her aim; at the end of the day Riko’s pride is worth less than victory. Less than a damn good argument, the one that Satsuki makes about Kagami’s leg; he’s not ready to continue but they have to push—but he is fifteen, and Riko’s not the one who gets to decide that for him, if his leg falters. He’s not ready to pay the price, either.

They lose that game; Hyuuga yells at her and Riko yells at him and at the end of the day they sweep that aside. Kagami’s leg recovers; the Winter Cup draws near and so does Satsuki’s best friend, the school she’d almost gone to, the things she refuses to talk about.

*

Riko doesn’t know why she kisses Satsuki, in that moment, because they’ve beaten Touou or because of the beautiful relief on Satsuki’s face, the tears she’s cried, too many already. But when she pulls back she realizes Satsuki’s been waiting for this, and she scowls.

“You should have done it.”

“I thought you liked taking the lead.”

There is a Kotori-shaped, Kotori-sized space. Not only between them but in the school, in the classroom where her laugh would sound, on the roof where she’s smile and bring up something completely irrelevant to the situation at hand but still, somehow, helpful. Umi can’t scold Honoka for getting off topic anymore; the words sound too harsh without her partner in crime and pea in a pod Kotori right there with her. And even a brief frown is too much these days, when Honoka’s not smiling enough as it is.

They feed the alpacas together in the mornings; sometimes Umi talks to them even though she knows it’s silly. She’s no substitute for Kotori, for the care she too and how she knew to look after them, but she can try at least. And she can look over to the next stall and see Honoka, pass her something over the half wall and brush her fingers over Honoka’s knuckles and pretend that everything is okay and that trying to flirt with each other is the biggest issue in their lives.

They can’t be mad at her; it’s impossible to stay mad at Kotori anyway, but it’s especially impossible when she sounds so happy and hopeful over the phone, even when she’s blurting out in the middle of a sentence that she misses them, and home, and Otonokizaka. They say they miss her, too, and they don’t doubt her sincerity. But she’s happy, taking advantage of her opportunity, putting her best foot forward, so why is it so difficult for them?

“It just sucks, Umi," Honoka says, slumping against her like the weight of missing Kotori exhausts her, because it probably does.

“I know,” Umi says, because what else can she say?

She pulls Honoka in and kisses her on the forehead; there are no other words to adequately express this. There are no other words that make any of this easier. Kotori’s got new friends and new opportunities and things ahead of her, a choice she had made that was worth the pain for her. They’re left here, with plenty, but with a choice. To let their world close over her shape or keep the wound fresh. A choice they can put off, but one that will eventually shift towards the first no matter how they try to keep it at bay, a choice that’s not a choice at all. One day, it will hurt less; right now they can hold each other up.

Some things are different. Other things are achingly the same.

Miki carefully unpacks her slim notebooks (racket grip preferences and serving speeds clocked to exactitude instead of photo finish race times, checkpoint strategies that carry a team through a city chokepoint); Miki counts out energy gels and protein bars (for power and the way feet can dance so quick and light across a court instead of bursts of speed through the flats, stamina to keep a climb going in the mountains); Miki checks off rolls of medical tape, tensor bandages, muscle relief patches (those stay the same, those always stay the same, she smiles ruefully).

“We’re going to nationals,” Miki says, and something about her voice falls so soft, Aya looks up from her own gear check and right on through her.

“Yes, we are,” Aya scowls. She doesn’t mean to sound so sour, she never really means to, but sometimes the way Miki is always looking away to the jagged line of the mountains that cuts the sky into pieces, makes everything in Aya bristle, makes Aya want to punch right through the particular blue of that sky, show Miki that there’s all this bright blue sky right here, hanging over the court, summer unfolding right in front of them and right here. Right here.

The cycling club had suffered disastrously in the qualifiers. The captaincy had landed too heavily on Imaizumi’s shoulders; Naruko had not been strong enough to pick him back up. Joy had fled too far ahead for Danchiku to catch up. And Miki had watched it from the sidelines, where all her careful notes and her energy gels and her metres and metres of medical tape had not been enough to bring their spirits together to cross even that first finish line. Aya had felt Miki trembling as she stood beside her that day, close enough that she can feel the heat of Miki’s shoulder lined up near hers, but the loss had felt like a distance that spanned across the concrete lines of the longest road. It had been a beautiful fall morning. It had felt completely impossible.

“I’ll be cheering for you,” Miki smiles, instead. She holds out Aya’s racket for her to take.

“And I’ll be cheering for you, too,” Aya snaps back just as fast.

Miki laughs. “That doesn’t make any sense, Aya.”

But Aya just twists her visor into place and takes the racket with both hands, smoothly, gently, like she wants to leave the gift of this summer still in Miki’s hands, and when she walks out onto the court, the light wind flies through her hair like something that comes down from the mountain, and Miki thinks she can see the bright blue sky in the assurance of Aya’s eyes.

“We’re not stopping till we get to the top!” Aya yells back before she goes to serve, and Miki believes her.

Smile more. Be happier; appreciate how good you have it. You would be pretty if you smiled, you know. Lighten up. Whispers meant as armless, meant as helpful, but Aya’s not here to make anyone else want to look at her. She tries to smile but it looks like a grimace on her, and why the hell should she smile when she’s annoyed? Why do people think that telling her to smile—as if they are making her aware of something to which she was ignorant—is anything but annoying? So she scowls harder; if they’re going to annoy her she can annoy them right back. If she’s doomed to be unlikeable, there are worse things in life. If she’s doomed to be avoided by everyone except the other people out there who are like her (and she can’t be the only one).

Except Miki, bubbly and happy, who always smiles and is told that her smile is so pretty whether it’s in comparison to Aya or not. Miki likes Aya anyway; the other girls put an air bubble of space between them, classmates and teammates and people who don’t know her at all, but Miki breaks through it like it isn’t even there. Miki, who could reach out to anyone, who could easily wrap half the class around her finger, Miki who reaches out a figurative hand to Aya.

They eat lunch alone, just the two of them; half the time Aya stuffs her sandwich into her face to avoid asking the question that worries her mind like picking at a scab.

“Why me? Why be friends with me?”

“I enjoy being with you,” says Miki. “Isn’t it the same for you?”

Obviously. “Yeah.”

“Good,” says Miki, and her smile hits Aya full-force in the chest, like a serve she wasn’t paying any attention to (there’s probably some stupid bike metaphor in there, too, but whatever).

There’s really nothing Aya can do about this, just grumble about bikes and daydream about Miki, smiling that way at her, holding her hand. She’s not some dumb otaku; she’s not a daydreamer in the first place (maybe Miki’s rubbing off on her). She just wants, and that’s a little bit more than she should, maybe (probably, definitely).

“Are you okay?” says Miki.

Aya doesn’t mean to kiss her; she just does. But when she pulls her face away, abrupt and awkward, Miki’s smiling like that again.

There are tales that are meant to warn children against going into the woods, of the strange man that lives among the trees, his house made of candy, designed to lure unwary children closer, until it's too late for them to realise that he man is actually a demon, living in the heart of the woods and lying in wait so that he can trap them and lock them into cages, fattening them until they're good enough to eat.

Sekizan is not a child and perhaps he should know better, but he stops listening at house made of candy. He decides that he needs to go into the woods and take a look for himself. Perhaps, as big and strong as he is, he won't fall into whatever traps the other children might anyway. He can take care of himself. Probably.

"Taka-chan, I still don't think you should be going into the woods," Hachioji says, biting his lip with concern as Sekizan speaks of his plan. "I honestly think it's just a story to keep the children away and teach them not to take things at face value. I don't think that there's an actual house made of candy out there. You'll just be disappointed, and who knows what else is living in the woods? You know that the hunters that go out there don't always come back safe."

"I'll find out for myself," Sekizan decides. "I'll take an axe, if I really need to protect myself."

"I'm not going to change your mind, am I?" Hachioji asks. "Please take care."

In the end, Sekizan is so distracted by the thought of a house made of candy that he forgets his axe. He just ends up pushing his way through the woods until he smells sugar in the air. He sniffs, trying to find the direction it's coming from, and barrels through the shrubs in his way, determined not to let anything get in between him and the candy.

The house he comes across is the most beautiful thing he's ever seen. It's put together by all kinds of sweets, gingerbread holding the edges together, icing to give it some colour, and even konpeito as little detailed pieces of decoration. The entire thing is incredibly ornate and Sekizan reasons to himself that surely, he's not going to ruin the structural integrity of the place by eating the windowsills.

Which is how the demon finds him, walking out of his house and blinking his black-and-yellow eyes at Sekizan in confusion.

"What is wrong with you?" the demon asks. "You're eating my house."

"You're the one with the candy house," Sekizan replies, stuffing another piece of gingerbread into his mouth.

With a sigh, the demon rubs a hand over his face. "Look. Will you stop eating my window sill if I invite you inside and feed you some cake instead?"

"You just want to fatten me up and eat me," Sekizan accuses. "I'm fine out here."

The demon laughs. "I, Zanba Ryuujin, have no interest in ruining that wonderful physique that you have. You just pushed your way through the woods to get here. I can respect that. I have no desire in eating you when you could challenge me instead."

"Challenge you… how?" Sekizan asks, his interest piqued.

Zanba grins. "We can talk about this over cake, can't we?"

Sekizan can't really argue with that.

When Arata plays, his movements are as smooth and rapid as the running river.

It feels no different whether you're watching him play on a recording, or from the stands, or from the opposite end of the volleyball net. Oikawa knows this from experience; Arata Wataya has been playing volleyball for just as long as he has, and they have met at every single Nationals tournament since middle school.

They're not up against each other just yet, so it means that Oikawa can sit in the stands with the rest of his team and watch as Arata's team plays. They might have been a no-name team from Fukui, six years ago before Arata joined, but he has a sense for the game that is unparalleled. He's a genius, Oikawa thinks begrudgingly. A volleyball god, if Oikawa was inclined to be that dramatic.

Arata's entire team is good, but that's something that he's responsible for as well. He's taught them all, and their teamwork might have been a little shaky to begin with, but they're a solid team now with strong fundamentals. They're fun to watch, and even more fun to play against. Oikawa is already looking forward to his turn.



Of course, when he gets his chance, Arata begins the game with a dump shot.

"No fair, Wataya-chan," Oikawa pouts, as he picks up the ball. "I'm going to crush you this time, you know."

Arata simply replies with a smile. Oikawa hates his smiles as much as he likes them; they're friendly and gentle, but there's a threatening undercurrent to them, like Arata will chew him up and spit him out, if Oikawa isn't careful.

Oikawa almost wants to dare him to try it.

He doesn't let Arata's team get the next point, or the one after. Arata smiles at him through the net again, before refocusing on the game, his expression shifting just enough that it feels like he's seeing everything and seeing none of it, all at once. He plays based on instinct, and a game sense that he's honed ever since he was a child, born out of the fact that his grandfather used to be a member of the national men's team and then, once he grew older, began to coach them instead. There's no one on the court who knows volleyball better, or loves it more.

No one, other than Oikawa. He isn't going to give up here. He isn't going to back down. They've been trading the championship back and forth ever since they first met each other at the Nationals. It might have been Oikawa's turn last year, but he's greedy. It's going to be his turn again.

Sad poem means sad story I guess.

***

Memories play through, fleeting and short-lived, just as you were. Tokens of you are scattered throughout the city we used to live in, throughout the country. As I pass by the old grocery store that has been recently renovated, it fetches the mundane tasks that we completed together. With a grimace, I drove a little faster than I should’ve. Making my way through the bends and turns, recollections of you can’t help but emerge as my eyes become misty.

A waft of fresh cut grass wanders into the car as I remember the distinct memories of you mowing the lawn as I called you in for supper. Days of college life remind me of my obsession with photography, yet you never minded. Those photographs are all of what I have left of you, smiling, breathing, alive. We used to mail each other letters when we lived far apart, mementos of one another to make time seem less lonely; I saved every one of them. I wonder if I ever told you just how much you meant to me?

I know you knew, we were each other’s worlds, but to me, it wasn’t enough; never will be. The engine dies as I park the car, more memories seem to flow in as I exit my vehicle. Reminiscing of our high school years, shouting your name as I spot you during lunch from the second floor of our school, playful shenanigans at the rooftop as we ate our bentos, lustful nights between two of us alone, adorable murmurs of you whispering my name as you’re fast asleep while I play with your hair, and those unavoidable arguments that left me speechless. I’m approaching your gravestone now, burning incense and tidying it up. The tombstone reads, “Here lies the remains of Sawamura Daichi.”

Funny, how it is, they said they never found your remains. I begin praying, intense and hopeful as more memories flow through, this time domestic. Your jobs meant long hours and overtime, I would always come back home first. Despite it all, I would always welcome you back whether accidentally asleep or awake. We weren’t wealthy, but we weren’t poor, you made sure of that.

You signed up to be a coast guard too. Persuading me that it would be safe, that it would bring in easy cash, I trusted your decision. In the end, you never died in battle, instead captured and taken away by Mother Nature. Your death was announced by the television, yet I remained hopeful that you survived, or much rather, in denial. A letter arrived to confirm your death, but I ignored it.

A memorial was held for the casualties, others mourned their losses. Some went to extreme lengths, ignorant of what to do without their loved ones. The ocean is a painful reminder, the stars are rather bleak without you, and it seems no matter what I do, this aching pain of knives and pins won’t go away. Tears streak down my face now as I pray even harder, praying for your safety, happiness, and that we may meet again in the afterlife. Hazy memories of your funeral come and go, it was held in the same church as our wedding.

White suits, jovial smiles and laughter turned into black suits and somber cries. I dry my tears and return to my car, starting the engine and driving to an undetermined destination. Just driving, to let the rest of my memories flow through, to get a peace of mind. We were always sickeningly sweet together, but that’s just how we liked it. We were in love.

Your name is still stuck on my tongue. At random happenstances, I believe you’ll still come home, but you never do. I believe that one of your numerous letters will arrive, but they never do. Sometimes random knocks or noises will lead me to believe it’s you. It never is.

Often, I call your name to get an item for me, but you aren’t there. Habitually, I call your name, whenever I see a scenery perfect for a photograph, but you aren’t there. I tend to imagine what it would’ve been like if you were. Sometimes your name escapes from my lips just for the hell of it. Just to keep your name alive.

Our joyful memories together far outweigh the negative, but now as I recollect them they all have a melancholic edge to them. We smiled through our problems and laughed at the face of despair. We were able to do that because all that mattered to us was each other, but now, now that you are gone; every day is a trial. I pass by the beach we so often visited, we went skinny dipping there once. The memory briefly passes through my mind, squeals of laughter, splashing wars, and a sweet kiss to seal the night.

I find myself at home, collapsing at the foot of the door once safely inside, the rest of my tears stream out of me. Suicidal thoughts race through my mind as the rest of my memories with Daichi consume me. The urge is intense and unyielding, today might finally be the day. I want to see Daichi again, my vices motivating me through the attempt, ready to commit, but I stop. Strenuous tears flow as I stare at what I’m about to do, I can’t do it.

No, I won’t do it. I wipe my tears and put away the items. Not today, nor ever. I can do it. I will live.

Daichi hears the bird before he sees it. He's coming back from the village just before sundown when he hears the quiet chirping. The sound is out of place. The birds in the forest fall silent early this deep in the winter, and even his own footsteps are muffled by the fresh snow.

He looks around and nearly misses the small bird on the stone by his door. Its feathers blend in with the stone and the snow, and he would have missed it entirely if it hadn't hopped closer to him.

He's a hunter by training and by trade, and his eye is quick to pick out the injured animal. The simaenaga's wing trails behind it leaving bloody path in the snow. Birds are far from his specialty, but he can't ignore the creature's cries, and next thing he knows he's lifting it as gently as he can and carrying it inside. He leaves the bird on the table with his scarf as he rebuilds the fire from the buried coals.

When he turns back, he swears the bird is watching him expectantly, and he's not sure what to say. He's never been much of a conversationalist, and he suddenly feels decidedly out of his depth.

He looks to the bookcase in the corner. He doesn't need his grandmother's books to identify the bird for him, but she was a healer, and maybe he'll be lucky enough to find something useful in her notes.

"Just give me a few minutes, okay?" he asks his guest. "I'm going to see what I can do to help you."

A wave of nostalgia washes over him as he opens the volumes filled with his grandmother's tight hand. There's no magic answer in the pages unfortunately, but somehow even the suggestions he would have settled on himself are more comforting for imagining it's his grandmother directing him as he tends to the injured bird as best he can.

He sleeps by the fire that night with the bird tucked into a nest of old blankets near his head. He spends the next day inside feeding the bird from his hand and fretting that its wound will become infected. He spends that night the same way as the first.

On the third day, he's in his workroom cleaning when he hears a sudden clatter from behind him. He rushes through the door, but the simaenaga is gone. In it's place is something Daichi has never seen before. His new guest is tall, with white hair that fades to black near the ends. An ugly scab runs down one of his arms, and the impression of feathers seem to shimmer under his skin as he moves. He bows to Daichi before beckoning him to come closer with a long, clawed finger.

Daichi doesn't need his grandmother's notes to tell him he's accidentally brought a youkai into his home. He doesn't need her notes to tell him his life is about to get much more complicated either. The glint in the youkai's eye as he waits in warning enough.

My friend had to explain to me what fake dating was because I had no idea and I'm p sure I still messed up

"I have a confession to make," Suga said.

Daichi propped his chin against the heel of his hand, watching Suga look everywhere except to meet his eyes. "Okay," he said, "I'm listening," but instead of the reassured glance he expected to get in response, Suga looked even more worried.

Daichi raised an eyebrow. "If you killed someone, I'll help you bury the body," he offered, "but only this once."

Suga frowned at him. "Daichi, that's illegal."

"You're not denying it."

Suga gave him a disgusted look. "Daichi, we've been training nonstop for the past month. When would I have had time to kill someone without you knowing about it?"

He shrugged in response. "You can be very clever," he said. "I have total faith in you to kill someone if you really wanted to."

"Why is this conversation so morbid," Suga moaned, burying his face in his hands. "I was just trying to tell you that I liked you."

Daichi suddenly sat up straight. "Wait. What?"

"Wait," Suga repeated, his head lifting to meet Daichi's gaze, their shocked expressions mirrors of each other. "Oh no. That's not. Um."

"You like me?" Daichi repeated. His tongue felt thick and clumsy in his mouth as he repeated the words. "I thought—"

"Of course I like you," Suga groaned, sinking down to bury his face in his folded arms. The rest of his words were muffled by the tabletop. "You're sweet and funny and kind and have you seen your arms? Sometimes I lie awake at night and wonder how you even exist. Everyone seems to think we've been dating since we were first years and I, I just never—" his words were starting to tumble over each other, his shoulders slowly hunching until they were up by his ears. "I never knew what to say, I didn't want to disappoint anyone, I didn't want to know you didn't like me back, but I just liked you so much—"

"Hey, Suga, easy," Daichi said, reaching across the table to rest a shaky hand on Suga's shoulder. "Take a deep breath." He felt Suga's back rise and fall beneath his hand, taking his advice.

"I didn't know," Daichi said, his voice quiet with apology. "You're always punching everybody, I thought you just touched me the way you touched everyone else."

"I punched you harder than everyone else," Suga muttered.

"I...had my suspicions, but I'm not sure I appreciate that—"

"Because I like you more than everyone else," Suga interrupted. "Daichi, I like you so much. I—I'm sorry, if this ruins our friendship or anything. I was just so tired of hiding it."

Daichi's hand was still resting on Suga's back. He rubbed it in slow circles, letting out a quiet thoughtful hum.

"If dating you is anything like being best friends with you," Daichi said, "I'd like to give it a shot."

For a moment, Suga didn't move. Then his head lifted to reveal a beet-red face and wide, wide eyes. "Are you serious?"

"Of course I'm serious," Daichi said, frowning. "I wouldn't joke about something like that."

Suga dropped his head into his arms again and just, didn't move for a while. Daichi let him go for a minute or so, used to letting Suga work through his racing thoughts at his own pace, before he shook him a little. "Suga? Are you all right?"

"I'm," Suga's voice was wavery, but relieved. "I'm just really happy right now."

Daichi smiled, his hand moving from Suga's back to curl around his jaw and tilt his face up. "Me too," he said.
