Bonus Round 6: Remixes


The event's almost over, and you've made it this far, congrats! This round encourages you to look back at everything the SASO has made and use it as inspiration.

This round is CLOSED as of 7PM on August 18 EDT. Late fills may be posted, but they will not receive points.


RULES
  • Choose a fanwork created by other participants in a previous main or bonus round of SASO and create a new piece based on it. You could create a fanart of another work, an FST inspired by a piece’s style, retell another person’s fanfic from another point of view, create a new fanfic inspired by a great piece of art... go wild!
  • You cannot remix your teammates' works.
  • You must have permission from the original creator. There's a blanket permissions post here (feel free to add yourself to it!), or you can leave a comment on their original post asking for permission.
  • You must include the dreamwidth link to the original work in your post.

Akashi Seijuurou & Kagami Taiga & Kuroko Tetsuya, Kuroko no Basuke
eye gouging, blood, extended suicide metaphors, Akashi Is Not Okay
455 words
Remix of nobetterpicture's BR1 fill.


He knows no one really expects him to carry through with his threat. He could tell after their win against Shuutoku that it had slipped from everyone's minds entirely.

He thinks they're all fools for forgetting. After all, he is an Akashi, and to be an Akashi is to be absolute. As hard as he is on everyone else, he's at least as hard on himself. He doesn't stall needlessly after the end of the Winter Cup, but neither does he rush recklessly. He takes the time he needs to make sure everything is properly in place.

For the actual event, he chooses a day when his father will be away, just in case he should do something so unsightly as crying out. He likes to think he has better self-control than that, but he is nothing if not prepared. He changes into a plain white yukata before laying everything out in front of him, the box, the dagger, and the cloth. The dagger sits at the appropriate angle, within easy reach. Everything is arranged just so for the ritual suicide of part of himself, but he doubts his audience is cultured enough to understand the references.

He double-checks everything one last time before he turns on the camera; it will have to stand in as a witness. He wishes he had a proper witness present, but unfortunately, none of his acquaintances have the necessary qualities to properly fulfill the role of the kaishakunin.

The dagger is heavy in his hand, an ornate piece of solid gold he took from his father's collection. Perhaps it's too ornate for the situation, but he has his reasons. The gold of the blade matches the gold of the eye that's not entirely his. He wonders if gouging it out will finally free himself from his own head.

He smiles to the camera as he raises the dagger. The last thing he sees with his gold eye is the gold point of the dagger coming closer and closer until it fills his entire vision.

It hurts, but not as much as he expected, though he swears he hears Bokushi screaming in his head. He laughs as blood runs over his fingers. Finally, his left eye is red once more.

It still doesn't match though. It's been years since his eyes were the same, and now he's so close, he can't stop.

He's still laughing as he thrusts the dagger into his right eye. The blood from both eyes runs over his fingers and finally, finally, after far too long, they match again. The screaming's stopped too. The sudden silence in his mind is disorienting, and he feels strangely unsteady as he turns off the camera.


Alternate ending if you want to go the even darker route: The screaming turns to laughter after the dagger stops. Then, in the darkness, he hears a familiar voice that wraps around the very core of his being and chills him to the bone: "Did you really think you could kill me so easily?"
