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.


RULES
  • 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.


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

Required Work Minimums:
  • 400 words (prose)

  • 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.

Fill: Team Grandstand, T

Haru turned over again, trying to get away from the shark that seemed to be following him everywhere. No, not Rin, he didn't mind Rin, the shark puppet that was currently trying to eat his hair again.

"Rin," he complained, "that's a present. Leave it alone."

"Mmm, just making sure it works," Rin said, making the shark nibble on Haru's hair again before leaning in to kiss him on the ear.

"It's a puppet," Haru mumbled sleepily, "how does a hand puppet not work?"

The same exchange had been playing out all afternoon. Rin had found a new aquarium for them to visit after Haru had been banned from yet another one for trying to climb into one fishtank too many. It was a small aquarium, but Rin had never found an aquarium Haru didn't like. And they had sharks, which were an added bonus.

They had been about to leave when Haru spotted a dolphin puppet in the gift shop and declared that it would be a perfect gift for Makoto's two siblings. Of course, Rin had then pointed out that if they were getting one puppet, they needed a second one as well, or Ran and Ren would inevitably end up arguing over it, which was how they found themselves leaving the aquarium with both a dolphin puppet and a shark puppet they had never intended to purchase.

It had been an exhausting morning, and as soon as they made it back to Haru's apartment, Haru declared he was going to take a nap. It was a plan that would have worked better if Rin hadn't taken to chewing on him with the new shark puppet every time he was about to fall asleep. And inevitably, every time he was just about to roll over and complain, Rin would lean in and kiss him instead, making him blush.

Eventually, Haru gave up on trying to sleep entirely, but that didn't stop Rin from continuing to tease him with the puppet, alternating the slightly scratchy felt of the shark's teeth with soft brushes of his lips well into the evening.

The next day, when they brought their presents over to the Tachibana household, they were greeted with much excitement, and two pairs of small hands begging for their help testing the new toys. Haru agreed immediately, but whenever the shark puppet came anywhere near him, he would start blushing furiously.

He didn't seem to notice his reactions, but Makoto did, and after an especially impressive blush from Haru, Makoto looked over at Rin accusingly. Rin didn't even bother trying to look innocent, smirking proudly as Haru blushed yet again.

Aww! Rin's such a sap it's amazing :DD Love how he can't help himself from cuddling Haru, and how embarrassed Haru gets about it :P

I'm glad you liked it! And yes, I imagine Haru's still not entirely sure what to make of this not prickly side of Rin.

Hehe, welcome to this installment of "Haru being oblivious, Rin being a little shit, and Makoto not being fooled for a minute." I'm glad you enjoyed it.
