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.

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.

As Tadokoro lay in the infirmary after the first day of the Interhigh, all he could think was that he never should have trusted the strange guy with glasses who had stopped him just after he finished.

He already hadn't been feeling well when he crossed the finish line, which he suspected was due to a combination of dehydration and heat. He had never done well in hot weather. He had been looking for a cooler spot between the tents where he could sit down for a few minutes when he saw someone walking towards him. At first, he had thought it was Kinjou and had called out. The other person looked up at him and waved, but as he approached, it became clear he wasn't Sohoku's captain after all. He had similar glasses and was carrying a well-worn notebook, but his hair was too long.

"I saw you finish; you aren't looking so good," the stranger said. "Do you need a hand?"

Tadokoro tried to wave him away. "I'll be fine," he said, "just need to rest for a few minutes and probably grab some water.

The stranger raised an eyebrow at him. "I saw you finish, and you didn't look fine then. You look worse now. You overpaced yourself and didn't leave enough for the end, didn't you? Stupid mistake, really, especially for a third-year like you. I think I can help with that though," he said as he set down the backpack he was carrying and rummaged through it.

"Inui Sadaharu, by the way," he added. "Seigaku tennis team member and analyst. I came out here today to practice analyzing a sport I know nothing about."

He pulled a bottle out of his bag. It glowed a sickly green and bubbled menacingly, but all Tadokoro cared about in that moment was that it was liquid, and it was being offered to him.

"My own special recipe," Inui said as he handed Tadokoro the bottle, "guaranteed to have an effect."

Tadokoro gulped down the contents. It was strangely briny, and spicy, and there were other less pleasant undertones he chose not to think about too closely. "Thanks," he said as he returned the empty bottle.

"Of course," Inui said with a smile. "This race is going to be interesting; even my calculations can't tell how it's going to go. Good luck." With that, he left, sliding back out into the crowd.

It wasn't until Tadokoro tried to stand several minutes later that the cramps hit. He grabbed onto the side of the nearest tent and fought to stay standing as he broke out in a cold sweat. He only made it a couple of steps before his legs gave out entirely, sending him sprawling to the ground. As he lay there, he thought he felt something vibrating in his pocket, or maybe it was just his muscles shaking.

Makishima. If he could just reach Makishima, everything would be fine.

He fumbled for his pocked and eventually managed to extricate his phone, only to have it fall from his numb fingers. The last thing he saw before his vision went dark was the screen lighting up with an incoming call.
