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.

Heath sighed as he looked at the scene in front of him. He had been outside setting Hozumi and Ayumu up for their practice when he heard a commotion coming from the club room. He had rushed through the rest of his instructions and hurried inside, expecting to have to break up another argument between Riku and Takeru over the containers of protein powder slowly taking over the corner, or Takao's obsession with Riku's legs.

Instead, he found Riku clinging to the arm of the sofa as Takeru tried to drag him to the door; Nana appeared slightly traumatized as she looked on, and as soon as Heath saw the form she was clutching nervously, he knew exactly what had caused the current outburst.

The Honan Stride Club had secured a place in the Stride world championships, but before they could go, they all needed travel immunizations. It shouldn't have been a big deal; the rest of the team had already taken care of theirs the week before, but Riku had been putting them off, and the deadline was fast approaching.

That being said, Heath could tell the current situation was not going to end well. "Takeru," he said patiently, "please let go of your boyfriend. Riku, please let go of the furniture. Nana, I'll take that form, and why don't we all sit down and try to work this out rationally. I could hear you yelling from outside."

"Riku needs his shots or he can't come with us!" Takeru yelled.

"I don't want to!" Riku yelled at the same time.

Heath held up his hand for silence, and caught sight of Kyousuke raising an eyebrow at him from the corner. He narrowly avoided rolling his eyes in response. As much as he loved having a full team again, sometimes he felt like he spent as much time parenting the first years as he did training them.

"Riku," he said, holding up the form, "this is a requirement if you're going to come to Worlds. The decision is yours, but if you're coming with us, the deadline is today."

Takeru opened his mouth to argue, but Heath cut him off. "This is Riku's decision, Takeru," he said. "If you can't respect that, then you need to step out."

"I want to go," Riku said, hugging his knees to his chest.

"In that case, we need to take care of this now, okay?"

Riku nodded weakly.

"Kyousuke, could you go down to the nurses' office and let them know we're coming?" Heath asked, and Kyousuke immediately rose and left.

"Do you want someone to come with you, Riku, or do you want to go by yourself?" Heath asked.

"Come with me," Riku mumbled to his knees.

"Then let's go. The sooner we get this over with, the sooner you can get back to practice."

Riku stood slowly, immediately grabbing onto Takeru's hand. They made their way slowly down the hallway, but they were only halfway there when Riku stopped. "I don't think I can do this," he said shakily.

"You can do it, Yagami-kun!" Nana said immediately. "Just think about how you'll get to race against Tomoe again."

Riku nodded, but he seemed rooted to the spot. "I can't," he said, but he was cut off as Takeru picked him up without warning. Heath was about to intervene again, but when Riku didn't protest, he decided to let it pass.

Thanks to Kyousuke, the nurse was already waiting when they arrived. "If you could take off your jacket and sit down over here, Yagami-kun," she said, "I'll try to make this as fast as possible."

Riku complied, never letting go of Takeru's hand, but he flinched every time the nurse got too close.

"I need you to hold still for me, Yagami-kun."

"I'm trying," Riku said, sounding close to tears.

Takeru frowned, then sat down behind Riku, holding him securely. "Better?" he asked quietly, rubbing his cheek against the side of Riku's neck.

Riku flushed as he nodded, looking uncomfortably at everyone else in the room.

"Nana," Heath ordered, "Hozumi and Ayumu should be done with drills by now. Could you go work on their Relations with them? They're a bit out of practice. And Kyousuke, can you work on their form? Ayumu's still unconsciously favoring that shoulder, and it's throwing off his stride."

Once Kyousuke and Nana left, the nurse tried again. "Close your eyes and try to relax for me," she said as she took hold of Riku's arm.

Riku tried to stay still, but as soon as the needle was in his arm, his eyes snapped open. "It stings," he whined, looking over. Without thinking, Heath reached up and covered his eyes; the last thing he needed was Riku doing anything that would add to his panic, and as Heath had learned when he injured his ankle, looking always made things hurt more.

"Sorry dear, that was the worst one," the nurse said absentmindedly as she covered it with a band-aid. "One more. Other arm please."

Riku squeezed his eyes shut as the nurse went to his other side. As soon as she finished, he looked up at Heath. "This means I get to go to Worlds now, right?" he asked.

"Yes it does, Riku," Heath replied. "I'll go turn in all of our forms now."

"We're going to the World Stride Championships," Riku said breathlessly as he hugged Takeru. "We're really going."

I'm glad you enjoyed it. Given the sort of antics the first year Stride runners get up to, I feel like that may not even be the strangest thing Heath's walked in on (sometimes he feels like he can empathize a little too much with the long-suffering parents he crosses paths with at the store or wherever). And yes, poor Riku, this is definitely not going on his list of favorite Stride experiences (though the kiss from Takeru after Heath left saved it from being too high on his worst experiences list).

I'm glad you liked it! I'm always happy for more excuses to write Prince of Stride.
