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.
    • To place an image in your comment, use this code: <img src="LINK TO YOUR IMAGE" alt="DESCRIPTION OF YOUR IMAGE"/>
    • Visual example
    FILL: TEAM GRANDSTAND, [RATING]
    • Replace RATING with the rating of your fill (G - E)
    • Place applicable major content tags and word count before the fill, where applicable

    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!

"Arakita Yasutomo, you are not riding today. That's an order." Kinjou's voice cut across the kitchen of their shared apartment, commanding yet quiet.

"Damn it, Kinjou! I'm fine," Arakita snapped.

"You are not fine. You have a repetitive stress injury that's liable to develop into a stress fracture if you keep training on it, so you're going to take a week off entirely to let the inflammation settle, and then pace yourself coming back. Do I make myself clear?"

"I'm not a fucking kid, and I don't need you fucking mothering me, Kinjou!" Arakita yelled, standing abruptly and sending his chair clattering to the floor behind him. He turned on his heel and would have punched the fridge door on his way out if Kinjou hadn't caught his wrist and held it.

"You break your hand punching things like that, and you're going to be out for a lot longer than a week, Yasutomo," Kinjou said, his deceptively calm.

"You don't fucking understand!" Arakita yelled, refusing to meet Kinjou's eyes. "You don't understand a damn thing."

"I understand more than you think, so I'll say this once: this is not, and never will be, your old baseball team."

Arakita's eyes snapped up accusingly, and Kinjou held them. "Fukutomi told me, back at the beginning of our first year when he asked me to keep an eye on his assistant for him," he said, his voice carefully neutral.

Arakita let out a choked laugh. "Of course he did," he said. "I swear Fuku-chan's the worst mother hen of you all, in his own way." His tone shifted. "But you can't make that promise, Kinjou," he said, pulling his hand free from Kinjou's hold. "You aren't the captain here, and we're coming up on qualifiers. Anyone who sacrifices a race for the sake of a teammate is going to be treated like trash."

"But anyone who abandons their comrades is worse than trash," Kinjou rebutted without hesitation. Arakita raised an eyebrow at him, but Kinjou didn't react, as if daring Arakita to say something.

"If the time comes where we have to abandon a teammate for the sake of victory," Kinjou continued, "then we take their determination and their spirit into ourselves, and we ride with the hearts of those we left behind. And when the race is over and the victory's been decided, we go back for them, and we carry them ourselves if we have to. That's the way Yonan fights; that's the way any real team fights.

Arakita let out a long sigh and slumped against the fridge, making it clear Kinjou had won. Kinjou gave him a firm pat on the shoulder as he left to finish preparing for practice. "If you get bored and need something to do, you could take care of your laundry," he called from his bedroom. "Your room's starting to look like a pigsty again. And there are some receipts on the counter that haven't been entered into our shared expense log yet. Oh, and Imaizumi e-mailed yesterday; he's starting to look at apartments for next year if you want to give him a hand with that."

Arakita groaned, but he went to his bedroom, shoved all of the clothes on the floor into the laundry bag, and dragged it out to the couch to sort. Domestic crap really wasn't his thing, but somehow Kinjou always seemed to subtly guilt him into it.

As Kinjou passed him on the way out, helmet in hand, he said, so softly that Arakita had to strain to hear it, "and if you're good today, maybe I'll have a reward for you tonight."

Arakita let out a low growl as the door closed. He was well and truly fucked.

I'm glad you liked it! I feel like Kinjou's the type to get the good friend/good boyfriend points on a fairly constant basis.
