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.

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

    • 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.

    • Visual example

    SCORING

    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!

Fill: Team Grandstand, G

After Ayumu was released from the hospital, Hozumi was the first person to visit him at home. Technically, as Heath liked to point out, Hozumi had visited Ayumu's home before Ayumu even arrived. When Hozumi had gone to the hospital after school like usual and learned that Ayumu had just been discharged, he had sprinted all the way to Ayumu's house, arriving before Ayumu and his parents, who had been stuck in a traffic jam.

"Ayumu!" Hozumi yelled excitedly as soon as Ayumu maneuvered himself out of the car. He ran over to hug him, stopping just in time when he saw the sling and remembered the broken collarbone. "Welcome home! I brought you a surprise; come inside so I can show you!"

He showed Ayumu the bag he was carrying, then rushed to hold open the door. Ayumu's parents both smiled as Hozumi somehow hurried Ayumu inside without ever actually touching him.

"Here look!" Hozumi exclaimed, shoving the bag over to Ayumu as soon as they were both safely settled on the couch. Ayumu tried to open it, but he struggled with only one good arm.

After the third time he caught the bag before it landed on the floor, Hozumi grew impatient and opened it himself. "It's the new Sengoku Warriors game!" he said, pulling out the case and offering it to Ayumu.

Ayumu's face lit up with a huge grin. "You got a copy! I was afraid they'd all be sold out by the time I went," he exclaimed.

"I went yesterday," Hozumi admitted. "I was waiting in line before the store even opened. I know they're your favorite, and this way you'll have something to do while your arm heals."

"Let's play together now; I call Sanada Yukimura!"

"Aww, you always pick him," Hozumi complained as he fished the controllers out from under the TV. "In that case, I call Sarutobi Sasuke!"

Ayumu laughed. "Always the little monkey, aren't you?" he said, making Hozumi stick out his tongue in reply.

It took several tries before Ayumu found a comfortable way to hold the controller, but as soon as he was settled, they launched into their usual battle, commenting on how much better the graphics and mechanics were in the new version. It wasn't long before it became clear that Ayumu was at a serious disadvantage with only one good arm though. "Uuuugghh, this is not working," he complained as he was soundly defeated yet again.

"We just have to make it more even, right?" Hozumi said. "So how about I give myself a matching disadvantage. Hmmm...oh! I know! I could do sit-ups while I'm playing; Heath-kun did say I needed to start doing more of them."

Ayumu laughed again, but he didn't discourage Hozumi. They played several more rounds that way, with Hozumi giving himself more and more absurd handicaps each time, until the last round saw him playing while doing a one-handed handstand.

His arm gave out right as he was soundly defeated by Ayumu, and he collapsed exhausted onto the floor, and they both started laughing. They were still laughing several minutes later when Ayumu's parents came in with snacks for both of them.

Author's note: I think the inherent cuteness of these two may have interfered a bit with the whole bro bit, but hopefully this still worked.

I love this. And I love that it's more cute than "bro" because that's how I interpret them, too. They just seem like they'd thnk they were Very Bro when really they're just kind of adorable.

I especially like the part about Hozumi's handicaps - playing with their over-the-top athleticism and how that translates into Teenage Shenanigans. It's fantastic. Nicely done. I wasn't expecting this to get a fill at all so it's exciting to see that it did, and such a cute one at that.

I'm glad you liked it! I can definitely picture them thinking they were being cool and ending up with the cute instead.

There's not nearly enough Prince of Stride out there, so I've been getting excited whenever there's a Stride prompt, and even more so when it's a good prompt like this one.
