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.

Takao woke up to an empty apartment. It was a sadly common occurrence now that Midorima was doing his rotations at the local hospital and regularly working long and unusual hours. Takao had become used to it for the most part, but today, when he had his licensing exam for teaching, he would have liked to see Midorima before he left.

On some level, he wasn't surprised when he walked into the kitchen and saw the box sitting at his place at the table. A note written on a scrap of paper in Midorima's tight hand sat next to it.

Scorpio ranks 2nd today according to Oha Asa. I have also obtained your lucky item. There is no chance of you doing poorly today.

Smiling, Takao picked up the box; it rattled loudly when he shook it. His face fell when he opened it. "Maracas, Shin-chan?" he muttered to himself. "What am I supposed to do with maracas? And how am I supposed to explain them to the examiners?"

Still, Midorima had gone out of his way to find a pair of maracas before he left for the hospital, and it was apparently his lucky item today, and even if he didn't personally put that much stake in Oha Asa, Shin-chan did, so not bringing them really wasn't an option. He'd just have to come up with a viable explanation on the way there, he thought as he shoved them into his bag. He had a long train ride ahead of him; he was sure he'd be able to think of something.

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

"How was the exam?" Midorima asked when he returned that evening.

"I passed!" Takao said excitedly. "Or at least I'm pretty certain I passed; we don't officially get results for another month, but the board pretty much said I passed right then and there. They thought the foresight to bring teaching tools and to incorporate them into the practical portion of the exam showed I quote, 'a degree of insight and planning uncommon in those new to the profession.' I was a bit skeptical this morning, but apparently Oha Asa was right about the lucky item."

"Of course it was," Midorima huffed.

"How was your day, Shin-chan?" Takao asked.

"Despite a power outage, a broken elevator, and numerous other smaller disasters, I survived, as did most of my patients," Midorima said stiffly.

Takao let out a low whistle. "How low did Cancer rank today?" he asked.

"Third."

"Third!? Did your lucky item—"

"I didn't have it."

"You didn't have it?" Takao asked incredulously, certain he had misheard.

"Procuring a pair of maracas at 3am took longer than expected. I didn't have time find to look for mine afterwards and still be to the hospital on time."

"Shin-chan! You sacrificed your lucky item for—"

"It was an important day for you," Midorima said, staring pointedly at the medical journal on the table and not looking at Takao. "I thought you would need the luck more."

"Awww, Shin-chan!" Takao exclaimed as he kissed Midorima on the forehead.

OMG THIS IS THE SWEETEST THING!! I can't believe the lucky item is actually useful for once and that Midorima gave it up for Takao ;w; And Takao as a teacher is not something I thought of before but I think it really suits him! Thank you so much for such a lovely fill!!!

Thank you! I'm glad you liked it!. I like to think that eventually one of the lucky items would have to have some actual use, even if it's just pure chance. I don't know why, but I strongly headcanon Takao eventually becoming a teacher (gym teacher specifically).
