Bonus Round 2: Images

Bonus Round 2: Images

Back by popular demand, this round uses official canon artwork as fodder for speculation and extrapolation.
Please read the rules carefully before posting!

This round is CLOSED as of 7PM on June 23 EDT. Late fills may be posted, but they will not receive points.

  • Submit prompts in the form of a canon screencap from one of our nominated fandoms along with a ship. Screencaps can be from the anime or manga, as well as any other kind of offshoot media, e.g. official art, drama CD covers, light novel illustrations, magazine covers, photos from stage plays, and/or caps from games.
    • Doujinshi, fan-made games or any other fan-created work should not be prompted, even if you receive permission. Only prompt official, canon artwork.
    • Keep your prompt concise. Don't prompt a whole manga chapter, for example.
    • Your prompt MUST include some kind of relationship. Platonic relationships are indicated by an "&" between the names (e.g., Abe & Tajima). Non-platonic relationships use "/" (e.g., Abe/Tajima). Please don't say "Any pairing," either!
    • Upload the cap somewhere (imgur works well) and post here with the images themselves or a link to them. Including a text-only summary of the image is encouraged.
  • Fill prompts by leaving a responding comment to the prompt with your newly-created work inspired by the cap.
    • Fills can be directly connected to the cap, e.g. panel redraws or writing fic that fleshes out the moment that was capped or that fleshes out what happened directly before/after, but fills can also be more indirectly linked. As long as the work is somehow inspired by the cap, it counts.
    • Fills that are too long to fit in a single comment should have the rest of the fill placed as replies to the original fill comment. The subjects of these extra comments should be something like "part 2 of X" or "continued."
  • Remember to follow the general bonus round rules, outlined here.

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:

  • 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
  • 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)
  • NSFW FILLS: Please cross-link these fills and use clear tags in your comment. Written/text fills should be hosted at AO3 ONLY as a new, unchaptered work. 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
  • Replace RATING with the rating of your fill, G - E, as explained in the rules
  • Place applicable major content tags and word count before the fill, where applicable
  • NSFW FILLS: Please cross-link these fills and use clear tags in your comment. Written/text fills should be hosted at AO3 ONLY as a new, unchaptered work. Art/visual fills can be hosted anywhere. You may include a small safe-for-work preview of your work in your comment.
  • To place an image in your comment, use this code: <img src="LINK TO YOUR IMAGE" />
  • Visual example

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.

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.

If you're hunting through the prompts looking for what to fill, a good trick is to view top-level comments only.

Summer finals were the bain of every baseball player’s existence. Hours spent studying they would much rather have used outdoors, swinging in the batting cages or pitching into the net.

Sawamura’s brain so full of facts, formulas and quotes from Kanemaru’s cram sessions after practice, he looked liable to explode at any given moment.

Furuya no better sneaking off to nap at every available moment before someone dragged him back into his room for more studying before lights out.

Now it was just the waiting game for all the exams to be marked to see who was free for another semester and who would have to take make-up exams and studying sessions for any subjects they failed; highest bets placed on Sawamura of course for the extra work he would have to do.

Third and second-years from the team already gathering outside to let out all of their anxiety, tests completed until the next round and the freedom to now spend a summer focused on baseball.

First-years finally joining the growing crowd, two pitchers in particular searching out the small gathering of catchers within the large group. An ambush set to occur before a sudden shout silenced everyone in the near vicinity.

“Popsicles! Baseball team, come and get your popsicles!” The sound of nearly a hundred running feet finding the courtyard between the school and dorms, managers already waiting with smiles on their faces for the hungry crowd.

Third and then second-years picking their favorite flavors while the first-years waited patiently, minus Sawamura bouncing on his toes until Kanemaru chopped him lightly on the back of the head.

Everyone settling into groups once they had their cool treat and bows made to the managers for their thoughtfulness after such a long, tiring day.

“Strawberry! Bleh… blueberry is much better!” Sawamura shouting as usual drawing the attention of one particular catcher, white hat already out to break the intense rays of the sun beating down while they were still wearing their school uniforms.

“Noisy-mura as always… think you did that well you can celebrate so loudly?” Miyuki crunching down on the last of his popsicle, watching Sawamura get even more worked up.

“Of course Miyuki Kazuya! Kanemaru helped me study and I have faith I passed everything with his strict tutoring!” Kanemaru looking a little green in the background, Miyuki’s signature cackle growing with Sawamura’s continued shouting.

“I thought he had helped you, so you weren't my pick for the losers poll on having to re-take any exams…” Miyuki’s gaze looking over Sawamura’s shoulder, “but unfortunately Furuya-kun I couldn't say the same for you…” snickers growing louder as the tall pitcher started to fume.

Miyuki twirling his winning stick in his mouth, nearly falling forward when Sawamura threw an arm over Miyuki’s shoulder, mile-wide grin splitting his face.

“Aww Miyuki-senpai had faith in me passing exams.”

"No, I had faith in Kanemaru’s tutoring… and that Furuya would fall asleep for far too much of his study time.” Miyuki’s cackling growing worse as the first-years fumed, Miyuki slipping out from Sawamura’s hold to go into a defensive stance.

“Alright, practice starts in fifteen minutes and everyone needs to go and get changed!” Yuuki yelling from the side of the crowd to get everyone in motion.

Haruichi controlling Furuya and Sawamura while Kuramochi dragged Miyuki away from the mess he had started, a round of head chops all around to try and cool hot heads.

“I'll show him that I passed…”Furuya muttering under his breath as the brief break ended.

Everyone returning back to the sport they loved that they could now focus on for the remainder of the summer.
