Bonus Round 4: Quotes

Bonus Round 4: Quotes

A shipping olympics favorite, this round uses quotes of all sorts to fuel your creative endeavors.


This round is CLOSED as of 7PM on July 21 EDT. Late fills may be posted, but they will not receive points.


RULES
  • Submit prompts by commenting to this post with a quote attributed to a specific person or character, along with any ship/ot3/etc. from one of our nominated fandoms.
    • Example: "You must be the change you wish to see in the world." - M. Gandhi
    • The quote can come from anywhere. Famous people, poetry, songs, books, movies, your neighbor, etc.
    • Your prompt MUST include some kind of relationship. (This is not the sports anime gen olympics.) Platonic relationships are indicated by an "&" between the names (e.g., Makoto & Rin). Non-platonic relationships use "/" (e.g., Makoto/Rin). Please don't say "Any pairing," either!
  • Fill prompts by replying to the prompt with your quote-inspired fanwork.

SHRUGS IDK TBH BUT HERE IT IS

the light through the window is bright, heat pressing through the glass heavy as a blanket. youichi's kicked the sheets half off, one foot hanging off the side of the bed, his face jammed firmly against ryousuke's shoulder blades, low rumbling snore vibrating against the skin. ryousuke's never quite sure what to do with this feeling, this overwhelming fondness, a nameless wave swallowing him whole. there's a spot low on youichi's neck, the dip where it joins his shoulder, a shallow hollow above the wing of his collarbone. sometimes ryousuke wants to press his face into it and scream.

he's been awake for hours and hasn't really wanted to move, youichi's sleepy shifting matching his occasionally restless toss or turn, rendered boneless beneath the weight of something he's been grappling with for the better part of three years, something he's mostly tamed. youichi's been working swing, long shifts and long nights, stumbling home in the early AM with a day's worth of exhaustion hanging heavy from his bones. ryousuke has the day off and wants to let him sleep. ryousuke wants to let him do a lot of things. it's not confusing anymore, hasn't been for a long time, but ryousuke's never been good at going easy on anyone, least of all himself.

ryousuke turns over, watches youichi's nose scrunch up at the loss of contact, an unintelligible noise of displeasure. watches it smooth as ryousuke reaches out, lays his palm on the swell of of youichi's rib cage, the rhythm of his breathing evening back out. it's fascinating, a type of power ryousuke is never sure that he actually wanted, but he has it. he has it, and he wants to be careful with it, to take care of it. he's never felt more fragile than he does in a moment like this, the sunlight heavy on his hip and youichi's skin warm beneath his hand, a sensation he isn't sure he likes but is certain he craves. whatever messy and uncertain parts there are or have been, ryousuke made a choice and he's trying, and it's enough.

youichi shifts again, opens his eyes with a slow blink. "good morning," he says, voice raspy with sleep, and ryousuke smiles.

"it's noon," he says.

"what're you still doing in bed," youichi says, yawning, slow full-body stretching and then his hand on the slope of ryousuke's hip, thumbing at the curve of his waist.

"you were asleep," ryousuke says, like that explains everything, palm stroking down youichi's side. his smile widens, hand pausing at the point of youichi's hip before sweeping back up, knuckles brushing the tender underside of the upper arm. "but now that you're awake, you can get up and make me breakfast."

youichi shakes his head but he laughs, low and soft, leans in to press his lips to ryousuke's cheek. "yeah, okay," he says. "whatever you want."
