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.

tags: mention of sex, no sexual content (the M is cautionary it's more of a T)
Word Count: 784

Chris' hands are at Tanba's waist, his lips brushing against Tanba's lips, and in that moment there isn't a single thought in Tanba's head. There's only the thrum of his heartbeat as it gradually speeds faster, just the echo of Chris' name somewhere in the back of his mind. Chris' hands slide from his hips and move across the front of his pants and before Tanba can think better, before he can process and remind himself to stay in place, he's flinching back from the touch.

The kiss breaks, Chris leaning away from him until their eyes meet at some distance, Tanba's too wide, Chris' shadowed with something that looks far, far too much like concern.

"If you're nervous," Chris says. "We don't have to do this right now."

"I'm not nervous," Tanba immediately insists.

Chris' eyebrows go up, in clear expression of disbelief. He doesn't even say anything, just gives Tanba this look from beneath them that cracks his resolve right through and pushes him to again lower his chin. His head ducks, just a little, just far enough that he isn't quite meeting Chris' gaze. The breath he exhales then shakes, only slightly, with something that could, not-incorrectly, be assessed as nerves.

"This was my idea," Tanba says, holding onto it.

"Sometimes we change our minds," Chris tells him. "It's only human."

Tanba is silent a moment, frustrated, thinking, trying to place the reason he becomes jumpy in the face of any touches that are even a hair too familiar. Chris' eyes are still on him, his gaze patient but still heavy. It's a weight Tanba can feel sinking into his skin, cannot help but read as being lined with expectations. He likes the idea of sex, likes the experience of his own pleasure when he's had that alone, but the reality of sex with another person just presents so many more complicated and different challenges.

"Hold on a minute," Chris says, while Tanba is still sorting through his thoughts. He moves to get up from the bed.

Tanba reaches reflexively after him, the insistence for Chris to wait heavy but unspoken on his tongue. He experiences a moment of very real fear that Chris is about to just leave, before he reminds himself that he's sitting in Chris' bedroom, in Chris' apartment, and that even if Chris did, sooner or later he'd have to come back.

The thought of Chris inevitably coming home to him after abandoning him in the building is an absurdly funny one, ridiculous enough that it makes Tanba smile.

Chris has moved across the room and as Tanba's nerves abate, he thinks to watch what Chris is doing. He's moving things around on the shelves against the wall, shuffling little objects back and forth like he's searching for something. He makes a sound when he finds it, a soft little hmph of satisfaction before he moves to rejoin Tanba on the bed.

"If you're nervous about me touching you," Chris says, tossing Tanba the item in his hands and relying on Tanba's well-honed baseball reflexes as a guarantee that he will catch it, "I thought you might get over that if I let you touch me instead."

Tanba glances down at the object he's now holding. It's a bottle of massage oil.

He glances back up, in time to watch Chris smoothly pulling his t-shirt off over his head. The muscles around his stomach move when he stretches his arms above his head, and though the motion is clean, his hair looks just the littlest bit ruffled by the shirt's passing. Tanba wants to touch that, wants to slide his fingers into Chris' hair and work all the product out of it, until it falls more naturally, messily, around his face.

"What do you think?" Chris asks, glancing down at the bottle in Tanba's hands, glancing back up at Tanba's face.

"Okay," Tanba says. It's a far less complicated proposal than the one he'd given, is somewhere simple from which to start. "How do you want to do this?"

"I don't know," Chris says. The smile is all in his eyes, crinkling into their corners, only barely tugging at the twist of his lips. "It's in your hands now. Tell me what you want to do."

There's the expectation again, the same weight that was pressing on Tanba before and preventing him from responding with anything but skittishness and nerves. But it's lighter this time, it's — playful, teasing in the same way Chris always does, with a little bit of bite to it but nothing too hard. It's a challenge Tanba is willing to rise to meet.

"Turn around," he says. "And I'll figure that out."

I already wrote the played straight version last round, and I saved this prompt in my spreadsheet as "Tanba really wants to pitch to Chris." So I looked at my note and was just like... wELL.

He wanted to pitch to Chris. It doesn't happen in the bedroom, either. :')

you're welcome, ilu

SSSHH, leading with a massage is a good start, they can work up to it... before deciding penetration is too much work and overrated and cuddling is very satisfactory...
