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)

PROMPT: TEAM [YOUR SHIP]

  • 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.

He's still not sure how he feels about the sand drifting between his toes. Higher up on the beach, it was warm and fine, tickling as it slid off the tops of his feet. Down here, close to the water, it's cool and thick, providing a pleasant resistance as he kneads his toes through it.

He likes the feeling so much he sits down, kneading his fingers into the soft ground next to his toes. He picks up a handful of sand, watching it turn to liquid and slip out through his fingers as a wave rolls in over it.

"Kuroo," he says, tugging Kuroo's hand until Kuroo sits down next to him. He cups Kuroo's hand in his own and digs it into the sand, watching the dark grains roll off of their intertwined fingers.

He lets go of Kuroo's hand and starts digging in earnest, scooping out large handfuls of wet sand and plopping them into a pile next to him.

"Are you going to build a sandcastle?" Kuroo asks, and Kenma shakes his head.

"I just like digging," he says.

"Can I build one then?"

Kenma nods; he has no plans for the sand he's dug out of his hole. He never does; he just likes digging and feeling the sand run through his fingers.

Kuroo sits down behind him, but Kenma doesn't watch what he's doing, intent on his own project.

He loses himself in the sand, watching it swirl around in the water. Eventually, Kuroo taps him on the shoulder, and he realizes the tide came in while he wasn't looking, and he's now sitting in the water instead of on the beach.

He looks behind himself. The waves are lapping at the edges of Kuroo's sandcastle, but it's still clear enough. It's a large heart, and drawn into the sand on top are a volleyball, a cat, and a game controller. He grins, reaching over to add his own heart to the design before he follows Kuroo farther up the beach.

They lie out in the sun to dry off, and Kenma closes his eyes, basking in the warmth. He thinks he may have dozed off, because the next thing he knows, something is tickling his nose. He sneezes and reaches up to bat whatever it is away, assuming it's probably Kuroo teasing him.

Instead, his hand runs into something soft and warm. He opens his eyes to find a black cat staring down at him, its tail waving back and forth across his face. He laughs and pulls it in close for a hug. He's always liked cats, and they've always seemed to like him.

This particular cat seems especially taken with him, and it curls up on his chest, purring contentedly as he pets it. As Kuroo plays with his hair, Kenma decides that, despite his earlier objections that he'd rather stay home and play video games, he's very glad Kuroo convinced him to come to the beach.
