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]
  • 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")

FILL: TEAM [YOUR SHIP], [RATING]
  • 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.

"Sorry you can't give me homemade ones? What's that even supposed to mean, Asahi-san!?" Noya yelled, pointing at the note on the box of chocolates from his locker. "These are just fine. Since when have people been supposed to make Valentine's chocolates?"

Asahi blushed and scrubbed a hand against his face. "Well," he said sheepishly, "I was reading a book where someone did, and it seemed like a nice idea, so I thought I'd try, but then…" He trailed off.

"And then?" Noya prompted.

"It's harder than it looks," Asahi said quickly, staring at the ground.

Noya dropped into a crouch to stare right back at him. "You made chocolates for me?"

"Tried, but they came out all lumpy."

"That's it?" Noya asked, aghast. "You made chocolates yourself, but decided they were too lumpy, bought a nicer box of chocolates than anyone else got, and still apologized for it?"

"They weren't as special as they should have been."

Nishinoya jumped up and wrapped his arms around Asahi's waist. "You huge romantic dork. These are all perfect, and now we're going to take them back to your place and share them while we study," he said as he skipped down the hall, pulling Asahi behind him.

Like most afternoons, Noya led the way, only stopping when they finally reached their destination and he had to wait for Asahi to unlock the door. They left their bags in Asahi's bedroom before taking over the kitchen table with all of their papers and books.

"I hate math," Nishinoya groaned as he opened his textbook. "Why is it always math? It doesn't even make sense."

"What are you working on?" Asahi asked.

"Something with graphs. And most of the time it does this, except when it does that instead, or breaks down entirely. Uuaahh!!! I don't get it at all!"

Asahi stood and leaned over the back of Nishinoya's chair, pencil in hand. "Where doesn't it make sense?" he asked.

"Everywhere. Like, why do these graphs keep jumping around, and who decided turning normal things into weird curves was a good idea?"

"Here, look at it like this," Asahi said as he sketched a fresh set of coordinates onto a blank page.

Nishinoya watched intently as Asahi filled the page with numbers and diagrams. It took an hour, but by the end, he felt like he actually understood what has happening for once.

"I need a snack," he announced as he closed his math book. "Want anything while I'm up?"

"Nah, I'm good," Asahi said absentmindedly as he opened the novel he was supposed to be reading. Then his eyes snapped up abruptly. "Wait—" he said, but Nishinoya had already opened the fridge.

"Asahi-san, are these the chocolates?"

"Sorry."

"Asahi-san, they're perfect," Nishinoya said breathlessly as he took the plate out of the fridge. The chocolates were a bit lopsided in places, and lumpy in others, but they were still clearly recognizable as miniature volleyballs, all arranged in neat rows. "Can I have one?"

"If you want."

"They're delicious!" Nishinoya exclaimed as he bit into one. "Here, you have to have one too! You made them as a gift for me, which means I get to share them with you if I want."

Asahi laughed, but he took the chocolate Nishinoya offered.

"Just for the record," Nishinoya said a couple of minutes later, "these are way better than the ones from the store. And now it's my turn," he said as he climbed onto Asahi's lap. "You're doing your literature homework now, right? Let me read it to you; I know how much you love this author."

"He doesn't make sense, no matter how many times I try."

"I think I can help with that," Nishinoya said as he opened the book.

Thank you! I'm glad you liked it.

I love Asahi being insecure and anxious, and Noya just sort of running right through all of it. And also the two of them being adorable in general.
