Bonus Round 1: Memory

Bonus Round 1: Memory


Let's start our summer by looking at the past—things that happened in canon, or maybe in an AU, or maybe just as wishful thinking...


This round is CLOSED as of 7PM on June 9 EDT. Late fills may be posted, but they will not receive points.

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! You prompt should consist of one scenario beginning with the phrase "Remember when", along with any ship/ot3/etc. from our list of nominated fandoms.
    • Your prompts can take the form of recalling canon facts/events ("Remember when Nozomi and Eli got parfaits after school?"), non-canon events ("Remember when Megumi and Jin met at the Tadokoro Family Reunion?"), or somewhere in-between ("Remember when Bokuto and Kenma first met?"). Headcanons and AUs are welcome!
    • Your prompt MUST include some kind of relationship. (This is not the sports anime gen olympics.) Platonic relationships are indicated by an "&" between the names (e.g., Rei & Nagisa). Non-platonic relationships use "/" (e.g., Rei/Nagisa). Please don't say "Any pairing," either!
  • Post fills by leaving a responding comment to a prompt with your newly-created work.
  • Remember to follow the general bonus round rules, outlined here.


  • 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)
    • 14 lines (poetry)
    There is no max work cap.

    Format your comment in one of the following ways:

    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, including Grandstand or Sports Teams
    • Place the prompt's relationship in the first bolded line of the comment. Including the canon isn't required, but it's nice.
    • Below that, place applicable major content tags (when applicable; otherwise write "no tags" or "none")
    • Visual example
    FILL: TEAM [YOUR SHIP], [RATING]
    • Replace [YOUR SHIP] with the name of the team you belong to
    • Replace RATING with the rating of your fill (G - E)
    • Place applicable major content tags and word count before your fill (when applicable; otherwise write "no tags" or "none")
    • NSFW FILLS: Please cross-link these fills and use clear tags in your comment. Written/text fills should be hosted at AO3 ONLY. Art/visual fills can be hosted anywhere. You may include a small safe-for-work preview of the fill in your comment.

    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.


    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 3 fills by any member of your team: 20 points each
    Fills 4-10: 10 points each
    Fills 11-20: 5 points each
    Fills 21+: 2 points 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.

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

"Let me do your hair, Maki-chan," Toudou said, reaching across the low table to run his fingers through Makishima's hair.

"Not now, Jinpachi," Makishima replied, absentmindedly brushing Toudou's hand away. "We're studying, remember?"

Toudou pouted. "Maki-chan's no fun," he said. "When we finish then?"

Makishima sighed internally. It was the same discussion that seemed to occur every time the two of them had study dates, whether it was at Toudou's family's ryƍkan, his usually-empty house, or even at the ice cream shop.

"You're just bored," he said. "It's really not that interesting. It's hair; it grows, you brush it, and that's that; it's not nearly so interesting as clothes. Now those you can have fun with."

"That's not true, Maki-chan. Think of everything you can do with hair - braids, ponytails, the possibilities are endless. I'll even let you play with my hair if you want. Haven't you ever wanted to see for yourself what the Sleeping Beauty's hair is like?"

Makishima snorted. "I think I already know that, unless what I've been grabbing onto every time we make out isn't actually your hair."

He leaned away slightly and looked at Toudou, cocking his head to one said. "I still think it could use some blue," he said. "It'd highlight your eyes, and it'd go great with the Hakogaku jerseys."

Toudou wrinkled his nose at that, but then he turned thoughtful. "I'll make you a wager," he said. "I bet that I'll win our next race. If I do, then I got to do your hair however I want. If you win, you get to do whatever you want to mine."

"And no requesting to play with the other person's hair until then," Makishima stipulated.

"Fine," Toudou agreed grudgingly. "Does that mean you agree?"

"It's a deal."

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


"Waaaah! That smells like death, Maki-chan! I don't want my hair to smell like death," Toudou exclaimed, trying to scramble away from Makishima.

Makishima hooked one of his long legs behind Toudou's knees and dragged him back in. "It's just the dye; it's not going to make your hair smell like death. I promise."

"Why couldn't I have won?" Toudou moaned as Makishima worked the dye into strands of his hair.

"Technically, you did win."

"We tied, Maki-chan. We've never tied before. Why did it have to be this time?"

"You still get what you want," Makishima said.

"But my poor hair," Toudou wailed. "Are you sure you know what you're doing?"

Makishima waved vaguely in the direction of his own hair. "Quite sure, Jinpachi. Now hold still, unless you want me to dye your nose blue too."

When Makishima announced he was done several minutes later, Toudou immediately jumped up and grabbed his brushes out of his bag.

"Great! While I wait for this monstrosity to set, it's my turn. I already know exactly what I'm doing; Maki-chan's going to be super pretty when I'm done."

Now it was Makishima's turn to groan. "I think we may have different definitions of that," he mumbled.

"No sulking, Maki-chan," Toudou chided as he brushed out Makishima's hair and split off sections for a braid. "It's not pretty when you sulk." He worked with the ease of long practice, and it wasn't long before he was tying off the end of the braid.

Makishima immediately reached up to feel what Toudou had done, but Toudou batted his hand away. "Not yet, Maki-chan," he said as he reached for his bag, pulling out a single red spider lily. He snapped the stem off close to the flower and tucked it into Makishima's hair.

"There," he announced, sitting back to admire his work, "for my favorite Peak Spider, but you don't get to look yet, not until I've washed this out, and then we both get to look together. Okay?"

With that, Toudou hurried to the shower to wash any excess dye out of his hair. "Ready, Maki-chan?" he asked when he returned. "You close your eyes, and I'll close mine, and we'll both open them and look in the mirror on the count of three. One. Two. Three!"

Makishima had been expecting something gaudy and ostentatious from Toudou, so he was pleasantly surprised when he saw a simple French braid wrapping around half of his head with the spider lily tucked in at the side.

Meanwhile, Toudou was also finding himself more pleased with his new hair than he expected. He had been preparing himself for highlights as obtrusive as the red in Makishima's hair, but they weren't; they were subtle, enough that he could see them clearly when he looked, but not so much as to be distracting. And Makishima was right, they would go well with the Hakogaku jerseys.

"It's not bad," Makishima said finally.

"Neither is this," Toudou agreed. "So, want to do the same thing next race?"

Makishima just stared at him.

Thank you! I headcanon Toudou especially to be a master of snarky and self-centered on the outside, but actually extremely considerate on the inside.

Thank you! I'm glad you enjoyed it. I such have a weakness for domestic fluff in general, and for TouMaki.
