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.

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.

Note: I realized as I was posting this that I got the To and From mixed up in your prompt, but since there are no actual points involved since I'm Team Grandstand, I figured I'd post this anyway. Sorry.
_______________________________________

Rin was just falling asleep when his phone chimed and jolted him back to wakefulness. He groaned as he reached for the glowing screen. It was Haru, worrying that he'd oversleep and miss the competition the next day. He assured Haru that he'd call in the morning and then tried to go back to sleep.

Five minutes later, just as he was starting to drift off again, his phone chimed again. It was Haru, of course, this time worrying that he'd leave too late and miss the train. Rin promised to call when Haru needed to leave, even though he knew Makoto would stop by to make sure Haru left on time as well.

He was just settling down for the third time when his phone went off yet again. He swore quietly under his breath as he checked the message. This time it was Haru worrying that he'd lose track of time after the race and miss the lunch reservations he had made for the two of them.

"Is everything okay, Rin-senpai?" Nitori asked quietly from the other bunk.

"Everything's fine. Go back to sleep, Ai," Rin said as he typed out his reply, possibly hitting the screen a little too hard.

"It's Haruka-senpai, isn't it? He's the only one who can get away with that. It's sweet."

"It's irritating," Rin said, but he sent the message anyway.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The next morning, the Samezuka team caught an early bus out to the location of the competition. As they were walking from the bus stop over to the pool, a dollar store window display caught Rin's eye, and he excused himself to the rest of the team, promising to be back in plenty of time for the race.

The competition itself turned out to be small and not overly exciting. To their mutual irritation, Iwatobi and Samezuka ended with a perfectly even split of first and second-place finishes, but it was a playful sort of irritation.

After everyone had changed, the two teams met up again and started splitting off to get food. Before they left for their lunch date, Rin handed Haru a plain envelope. "So you don't wake me up next time," he said.

Curious, Haru opened the envelope. Inside was a small alarm. It wasn't overly complicated, but it could set up to five simultaneous alarms and had both a primary battery and a backup.

"This way you can set alarms yourself when you're worried," Rin explained.

"It helps me sleep," Haru mumbled.

"What?"

"When I get nervous, I can't sleep. Hearing from you helps."

Rin leaned in and bit Haru's earlobe gently. "You could have just asked, you know," he whispered.

When he looked up again, Sousuke was whispering something in Nitori's ear, and they were both making ridiculous sappy faces in his direction. He glared at Sousuke as Haru snuggled into his shoulder.
