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)

    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

    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!

"Will all participants in the summer Interhigh Intersport Festival please make their way to their appropriate divisions for the beginning of the preliminary events. I repeat, will all participants please make their way to their division for the start of the preliminary rounds."

The voice boomed over the loudspeakers around the large sports complex. Heath looked up at his team and took another headcount. One, two three, four, and… He frowned; there had been five when he counted only a few minutes earlier. Nana, Kyousuke, and Dan-sensei were picking up their team's registration, but the rest of the team had been accounted for. He did a quick scan of the tents set up around the track, but he didn't see their missing teammate.

"Riku," he said, "have you seen Takeru?"

Riku looked up. "Of course I have," he said, pointing to the corner of the tent. "He's right—" Riku stopped abruptly. There was a neat pyramid of protein drinks in the corner, but Takeru was nowhere to be found. "He was right there," Riku said defensively.

"It's fine," Heath reassured him, "just help me find him before we're late. Hozumi, Ayumu, you too."

"Will do, Heath-kun!" Hozumi said as he and Ayumu joined in the search. They found the rest of their team coming back from the registration tent, but no Takeru.

Just as Heath was about to start worrying in earnest, Hozumi yelled, "wait! I think I see him! Over by the track." The entire team followed Hozumi's finger, and sure enough, they all saw the back of a familiar black-haired teammate's head in the group gathering by the starting line.

Heath chuckled. "Of course Takeru would be the one to go ahead without us," he muttered. "Oi, Takeru!" he yelled, "Wait for us!"

The rest of the team echoed his call, but Takeru didn't seem to notice them, continuing to stare at the track and...undressing? "Umm, I don't think that's Takeru," Ayumu said, voicing what the rest of the team was thinking.

"If you're looking for the pool, it's inside," Hozumi said to the person-who-wasn't-Takeru when he noticed his swimsuit.

The stranger barely spared him a glance, pointing out onto the track and saying a single word. "Water."

Everyone looked at each other in confusion, but it was Kyousuke who finally made sense of the strange situation. "You're not a track person at all, are you?" he said. "That's not water; it's just a mirage."

"Not water?" the swimmer asked, looking dejected.

Before Kyousuke could reply, he was interrupted by shouts of "Haru!" and "Haru-chan!" and the stranger looked up sharply as a group of swimmers hurried over.

"Haru, we were looking all over for you. Our race is starting soon," one of them said, taking Haru's hand and pulling him off the track.

"Haruka-senpai, you really shouldn't wander off like— Could you cut that out?" a swimmer with glasses snapped. The entire Stride team looked down at the cause of the interruption and saw a familiar sight.

"Not bad, for a swimmer" Takeru said, feeling Rei's legs. "You should run Stride."

"I used to do track," Rei said through gritted teeth.

Heath walked over and pulled Takeru off of Rei. "What did we say about not touching people like that?" Heath scolded, sounding every bit the exasperated parent. He turned to the swim team. "It looks like you found our missing teammate for us, and I think we may have found yours. Sorry for the mix-up, but we'll trade you your teammate for Takeru now, apologies for his behavior."

As Haru and Takeru returned to their respective teams, more than one person watching asked "Are you sure those two aren't related?"

THANK YOU! I'm glad it amused you.

I'm always happy to see Prince of Stride prompts, and this one was too perfect not too fill (I swear they're twins, or possibly triplets if you include Kageyama as well). I imagine all of the other teams around, who aren't use to this sort of absurdity, are all wondering what surreal world they just stumbled into.
