Bonus Round 3: Gift Tags

Bonus Round 3: Gift Tags


Feeling generous? In this round, you get to give creative gifts as prompts.

This round is CLOSED as of 7PM on July 7 EDT. Late fills may be posted, but they will not receive points.


RULES
  • Submit prompts as a gift tag in the format below. You can specify the size and a characteristic of the gift, who the sender is, who the recipient is, and a one or two sentence note from the sender to the recipient. Descriptions of the package and the included note don’t have to be explicit, see below.
    • Package: medium sized cube, rattles
      From: Kageyama Tobio
      To: Hinata Shouyou
      Note: These will help you get better.
    • Envelope: manila, 12''x17'', very thick and heavy
      From: Tezuka Kunimitsu
      To: Kinjou Shingo
      Note: Enclosed - Play without regrets!
  • Your prompt MUST include a relationship. Platonic relationships are indicated by an "&" between the names (e.g., Riko & Momoi). Non-platonic relationships use "/" (e.g., Riko/Momoi). Please don't say "Any pairing," either.
  • Fill prompts by leaving a responding comment to the prompt with your newly-created work. Fillers can get creative with how to interpret the prompt: your fill can be about the character receiving the gift, one or both characters using the gift, what prompted the sender to send the gift—the physical gift itself can even be excluded from your fill. What’s important is that the gift tag is clearly the inspiration for your fill.
  • 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]

  • Place the prompt's relationship in the first bolded line of the comment. Including the canon isn't required, but it's nice.

FILL: TEAM [YOUR SHIP], [RATING]
  • Replace [YOUR SHIP] with the name of the team you belong to

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.

word count: 482

Abe has no idea when Ren slipped the red and white package into his luggage - the last time he saw Mihashi was the night before he left for university. They spent the night curled together on the futon in his room, Abe taking in the soft feel of Ren's hair against his cheek, the strength of his arm around his waist, the exact feel of his fingertips as they danced along his spine, the golden shimmer of his eyes, and just, Ren in general. He'd been the center of Abe's attention that whole night (and all the time, but that's another story). He can't think of a time when Ren would've slipped away to put the box in with his things.

So you don't forget me, the note reads, and Abe snorts out loud in the quiet of his dorm room. "As if." Who just forgets about someone who changed the way you viewed the world at large so intensely in three years that he can never see a space without Ren in it?

Not to mention, even if Ren didn't mean the sun and the stars to him, Abe wouldn't be able to forget about him. The only reason they weren't going to university together is because by the time they were in Koshien their third year an entire section of bleachers was dedicated to the scouts who were looking at Ren to go pro as soon as he was done with high school. And of course Ren took it. He had to take it, it would be stupid not to, as Abe told him once, twice, a thousand times over.

It helped that Tajima got signed to the same team, and Hanai is on track to get called up next.

Abe shakes his head, trying not to think about that part. It sucks that he wasn't even considered, not in the same way as the others, but he'll make it there. Somehow, someway, he'll get there.

But that's not for a ways, he knows it, he's still unpacking his first dorm room in Tokyo and trying to figure out classes and what exactly is in the little box.

He opens it as delicately as he can so he can keep the cloth, and opens up the box.

Abe's eyes go wide.

There's pictures, little snapshots from their first year until graduation, there's Ren's medal for when he won MVP for the Saitama regionals at the start of their second year, a keychain baseball mitt from the Koshien gift shop, and a calendar for the listed games for the Saitama Lions. No single thing is major, but together in the little box, it's everything.

It takes a long time for him to calm his hands down from shaking, to pick up the phone, and give Ren a call.

He deserves so much more than that, but it's a start.
