Bonus Round 1: AUs

AUs

SASO 2017 is over, but this round is perpetually open to new fills (no new prompts).


This popular round is back once again! To begin this year's SASO, we encourage you to let your mind run wild with alternate ideas and settings.


Please read this whole post before commenting to ensure that your team gets the most points possible. (There are changes from last year!)

RULES
  • Submit prompts by commenting to this post with an alternate universe idea, along with a ship from one of our nominated fandoms. There's a comment template below for your convenience.
    • 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., Izumi & Sakaeguchi). Non-platonic relationships use "/" (e.g., Izumi/Sakaeguchi). Please don't say "Any pairing," either!
  • An AU can be a canon divergence, e.g. "what if [character] was the Team Captain instead of the canon captain character?", or a completely different setting altogether, e.g., pop idol AU, coffee shop AU, superheroes AU, etc.
  • Fill prompts by leaving a responding comment to the prompt with your newly-created work.
  • 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)
  • 400px by 400px (art)
  • 14 lines (poetry)
There is no max work cap.

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.

If you see anyone breaking the code of conduct (e.g., causing drama, being rude) anywhere (not just DW), please contact the mods immediately.


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 4 fills by any member of your team: 20 points each
Fills 5-10: 15 points each
Fills 11-20: 5 points each
Fills 21-50: 2 points each
Fills 51+: 1 point 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 (see the line of links below this post).

Have a question? Check The FAQ first. If you still need help, feel free to contact the mods. Happy fanworking!

This ended up being more headspace than fight sequence.

***

Blood is running down Aomine’s forehead. His knees are groaning, and there's open cuts all over his body. Fighting for his life is nothing like team practice. Cracked gears hang in the sky, over a wasteland of shattered courts and scattered swords. A few paces apart is Archer, his older self; larger, broader, hardened with muscle and bearing the weight of a thousand wars. Blue eyes flash with killing intent as he charges.
They clash again, blade to blade, steel against steel. But a mage is no match for a Heroic Spirit. Aomine's will is strong in his heart and his limbs, but one slash sends him rolling down an incline into the dirt. Something sticky clings to his back, and he knows it’s his own blood.
As his vision blurs, Aomine sees into the corpse-filled battlefields in the past, into the dull future where his body swings from a noose, condemned to death for being a monster. Each day, waiting for a challenge that will never arrive. Feeling the things he once loved wither away.
I hate you. I despise you, my stupid, naive self. You think that everyone who likes sports is good inside. You think that everyone is equal. Your smile is too carefree. You’ve sawed down your fangs for the sake of friendship. You think fun and talent are one and the same. You think that someone out there could possibly stand up to you.
That’s not the way the world works. That’s not the way our world works.

He-Archer-Aomine had sacrificed himself to Alaya, not for power, but for the hope that one day, he could find his equal. Across the world, across countries, across time, surely some threat would be able to handle him. Something would pose a challenge, and reignite the flame in his heart.
But nothing ever did.
Aomine saw hell. The hell of monotony.
“We had too much talent,” Archer says, even-toned, having bent to his fate. “There’s nobody out there. There never will be. It doesn’t matter— magecraft, basketball, it’s all the same. There’s never going to be anyone stronger than you.”
And so, nothing is fun anymore.
Sometimes, he imagines this same fate. He knows that Tetsuya is trying, everyone on the team is trying. During some games, he feels his magic circuits itching, as they try to reach beyond their potential. He doesn’t know when that potential will explode, and he’ll become something charged with mana and unstoppable, but he knows it’s sometime soon.
“Yeah. You lost a lot, didn’t you?” Aomine tightens his grip on the dagger in his hand. “But I’m not there yet.”
Bright lights stream down. The crowd is cheering, and the court is polished and clear. Kamizaki vs Teikou, the signboard reads. Everyone is there, warming up, getting ready to go out into battle. They’re waiting for him, he has to go out there too, to fight with all he has. To feel the thrill, the challenge, the passion.
“Stop.” Out of the corner of his eye, he sees a flicker, the shadow of his older self, standing in the sidelines. “That’s hell you’re walking into.”
Aomine pauses for a moment, foot on the edge of the court. On the other side, he sees Inoue, with the rest of his team. His rival, a good rival that has the strength to shove him down. Satsuki on the sidelines, Tetsuya waiting patiently, both friends who believe in him.
“I have to go,” he says, to Archer. To himself. “To see for myself.”
He's going to keep practicing his magecraft, and he's going to keep playing basketball. He's going to keep evolving.
“There isn’t anyone there.”
Archer-- if he'd truly given up, then he wouldn't have kept playing. He would have stopped trying, long ago, and given up on chasing those flickers of fun. But that's not an option for either of them.
Aomine steps onto the court, into the lights.

***

The boy next door plays volleyball.

That is weird because all the kids in the neighbourhood play baseball and Shouyou plays baseball, which means there isn't anyone to play volleyball with. It must be boring, playing by yourself. He wonders what volleyball is like.

He wonders what volleyball is.

So he goes looking for the boy next door one day, peeking through the bars in their gate with his baseball bat and mitt in hand. The garden is empty but he hears a whump, thump, whump somewhere from the house which must mean that someone is in.

"Hello?" Shouyou shouts and the whump, thump, whump continues. "Hellooooo!"

"My mom's not in," comes a voice from the house.

Shouyou squints past the side of the house, pressing his face to the gate to see round the corner. He sees a boy his age—the boy next door—scowling at him with a brightly coloured ball in hand.

"Can I come in?" Shouyou asks.

"What for?"

"I heard that you play volleyball."

The boy next door seems to brighten up, just the slightest. "Do you play?"

"I don't know what that is."

"Oh." The boy's face falls. He turns away from Shouyou and starts tossing the ball up in the air, bouncing it back up on his hands with his arms stretched out above him.

"What are you doing? Is that volleyball?" Hinata asks, squashing his face against the bars to see.

"I'm learning how to set," says the boy, his face scrunched in concentration. "I want to be a setter."

"What's that?"

The ball lands smack on the boy's face and Shouyou bursts out in laughter at the image it makes. When the boy looks over at Shouyou, his scowl is back in place, more ferocious than ever.

"You don't even know what a setter is?" the boy asks him, aghast.

"I told you. I don't know what volleyball is."

The boy's eyebrows furrow. Shouyou can see a red mark forming right in the centre of his forehead where the ball had smacked into his face and he fights back the laughter bubbling up in him again.

The boy picks the ball up from the ground and marches over to the gate. Shouyou falls back, ready to run if the boy wants to pick a fight. Then the boy unlatches the gate and pulls it open, his mouth still downturned in a frown as he says, "I can't believe you don't know what volleyball is. Get in here."

Shouyou has his hands raised defensively and he asks warily, "What, why?"

"Because I'm going to show you what it is, dumbass," the boy says and Shouyou scowls at the name. "My mom keeps videos."

"Don't call me dumbass," Shouyou tells him hotly. "My name is Shouyou."

"Okay," the boy says, turning to lead the way to the house.

"And what's your name?" Shouyou asks, running up alongside him.

"Tobio," the boy says and Shouyou finally has a name to call the boy next door.

---

"You dumbass! Didn't I show you the video? You put your hands like this when you receive the ball."

"Why can't I just catch the ball? Volleyball hurts my arms."

"Because that's not how volleyball goes."

"How is volleyball even fun?"

"It's because you're not making the ball go pah and whoosh like what they do in the videos."

"They're grown-ups. That's why the ball goes all fwum for them."

"You don't get it, dumbass!"

"It's Shouyou!"

---

The first time Tobio sets the ball and Shouyou slams it across their makeshift net with a clean hit to the palm, Shouyou finally gets what Tobio means.

---

He is walking through the market street, wheeling along his bicycle on his way back from a session of baseball with Izumi and Kouji when he sees a flash out of the corner of his eye. It looks a lot like the volleyball videos Tobio has been showing him and Shouyou stops before the television screen in a shop to watch for a bit.

It only takes a second, no, a fraction of a second for the ball on the screen to travel from the spiker's palm and straight onto the floor. The crowd screams and it is as if Shouyou screams with them because he suddenly finds himself breathless, a shock running through his entire body, starting from the tips of his fingers and flowing down to his feet.

That number 10 had flown.

---

That number 10 is called the Small Giant and of course Tobio knows about him. He went to Karasuno. He had fought in the Nationals. But Tobio's interest lies in his setter, not the Small Giant.

Shouyou visits Tobio twice as much now, learning to catch the ball on his forearms instead of with his hands and to slam a spike across the net. He tells Tobio that he wants to go to Karasuno. He wants to be just like the Small Giant.

Tobio doesn't laugh at him or frown like he usually does. He just nods and sets the ball back to Shouyou.

---

Tobio goes to Kitagawa Daiichi and Shouyou doesn't. Shouyou goes to Yukigaoka with Izumi and Kouji and when he looks for a volleyball club to join, there is none.

Tobio moves and Shouyou doesn't. He doesn't get to see him again for a year, then two, and then suddenly in the summer of his third year, they meet face-to-face across the net at the Junior High Athletics Meet.

Tobio wins and Shouyou... doesn't. But neither of them are happy when they face each other across the net.

"What have you been doing all these years, you dumbass?" Tobio yells at him, harsher than he has ever sounded all those years ago.

It takes another teammate to drag Tobio away from the net and Shouyou watches him go, the blood pounding distantly in his ears. His nerves are still buzzing from the game, frustration in every inch of his body from not being able to move as he wanted, to run, jump, spike as he wanted. Tobio is disappointed in him but he isn't the only one who is.

Shouyou runs, his legs finding their way out of the gym, weaving past the different teams here to try their luck at a chance at standing on top. Maybe Tobio would have found a way to improve himself if he had been in Shouyou's place. Maybe Tobio would have been able to stand as an one-man army all by himself against the likes of Kitagawa Daiichi if he had been on this side of the net. Maybe Shouyou would have become the best player with Tobio by his side.

"Tobio!" Shouyou catches sight of him and his team leaving the venue, screeching to a stop as Tobio turns to look at him. His eyebrows are furrowed, the frown on his face deepening as he sees Shouyou standing there at the top of the stairs.

He has never seen Tobio from this angle, from way up high. This must be what the Small Giant sees whenever he flies high, out of everyone else's reach. Maybe this is what Tobio sees when he plays at a level so much higher than everyone else around him. But it must get lonely, standing at the top by yourself, playing volleyball by yourself.

"I'm not going to lose again," Shouyou declares, angry tears welling up in his eyes as he looks straight down at Tobio. "I'm going to Karasuno."

---

"It's about time, dumbass," Tobio says to him as Shouyou throws open the doors to the gym and breathes in the familiar scent of wood, sports equipment, and air salonpas.

"It's Shouyou, dumbass," Shouyou mimics him, complete with the furrowed brows and frown, as he takes up the spot right across from him on court.

i've never written kikasa before, but why not start with angst fic?? :'))

***


the first time kise hears his name, it's cold and rainy, as they stand outside of the barracks to meet their commanding officers. most people here have been drafted, pulled from their normal lives to fight in a war with dwindling numbers day by day.

that doesn't seem to discourage him, though. having to command a bunch of recruits with no prior training before this. now they're being sent out to war.

captain kasamatsu yukio, he introduces himself to his troop as.

it's a name kise will be hearing often.

...


kasamatsu first speaks to him directly after their first battle under his command. except, it's not really speaking in a pleasant or conversational sense. not at all.

he smacks kise in the back of the head, nearly knocks the helmet off of his head. for a moment, kise's wondering how he did that barehanded without even flinching, until kasamatsu's yelling at him.

"you're not here to show off!" he gestures to the gun in kise's hands, glares at him. "just because you're good with a gun doesn't mean you get to disobey orders and put everyone else in danger!"

at first, kise's surprised. no one's ever talked to him like that. no one's ever really told him what to do. he's just been allowed to do whatever he wants.

"but captain--" kise wants to point out that he'd taken down a bunch of men before them, and no one had gotten badly hurt in the process, but kasamatsu looks at him like he doesn't want to hear it.

"watch yourself and listen to orders," he says, and walks away like the exchange had never happened.

...


kasamatsu's one of the first people who isn't falling all over kise--trying to befriend him, trying to please him--and maybe it's because they're here, but something tells him that no matter where they first met it might be like this.

kasamatsu's all about respect--commands it, gives it to others who've earned it--and he's got kise's respect. kise just wants his, too.

like kasamatsu had first pointed out, kise's good with a gun. he's naturally gifted, and watching others, experiencing and trying it a few times, and managing to utilize that skill in battles.

"what'd you say you were before you came here?" kasamatsu asks as they lean back against the trenches, battle over for now, dirt and sweat and blood all over them as they sit to take a rest. "a model? i never would have guessed based on how you use that gun."

kise grins. "are you saying you couldn't tell i was a model just by looking at me?"

"i didn't say that." but kasamatsu glares at him when kise starts to laugh.

he thinks the conversation's over, effectively ended by him annoying kasamatsu with his words, until kasamatsu quietly adds, "you look like you belong here."

no one really belongs here, they shouldn't have to make themselves fit in here--in this war-torn, destructive place, but they've all been put here, anyway. for one reason or another.

"what do you mean?" kise asks, surprised by the words, the acknowledgement.

"with us." he holds up a hand, reaches forward like he wants to brush his sleeve against kise's face, clean off the dirt there, but stops, lowers his hand. "so don't do something stupid and get yourself killed."

kise smiles at him. "never."

...


even with reinforcements, their forces are dwindling. they're running low on supplies, too. if help and reinforcements and supplies don't arrive soon, who knows what sort of future they'll be facing.

kasamatsu guesses that the other army has to be in similar shape to them. if they can wait it out just a little longer, take out a few more men, they might be able to pull off a strike first that will end this battling for good. a surprise infiltration attack.

none of them seem to feel too confident they'll make it there, but say nothing all the same. they don't give up.

"it's okay to be scared," kasamatsu says the night before they go, sitting beside kise in an attempt at comfort before the group of them chosen to go will face who knows what in the early hours of the morning.

"i'm not." he is, but kise's good at faking--smiles, laughs, bravery. he can keep up a good mask, make himself seem carefree, unworried even when he's the furthest thing from that. "it's okay for you to admit you are too, captain."

kasamatsu's good at that too--faking--if kise's learned anything in the months since they've met. he puts on a brave face when, in reality, he's just barely over twenty-four, a captain of an troop part of an endless war, with the weight of the world on his shoulders. when he’s terrified of the odds stacked against him, that he won’t be able to return home.

“smartass,” kasamatsu breathes out, but moves closer to kise, rests a hand on his own. “like you know what you’re talking about.”

then, kise realizes that, in a sense, he barely knows kasamatsu, that this time spent fighting this war is the only time they’ve ever spent together. but... sometimes it feels like he has known him for much longer, like they’ve been this close for a long time and aren’t learning things about each other only as they step closer to death.

kise laughs when kasamatsu squeezes his hand, soft, gentle at first, and then tight. too tight. it reminds him of the other things he's grown used to--kicks to his shins when he annoys kasamatsu, slaps to his shoulder when he does a good job.

and for a moment, just a moment, it feels like everything will be alright.

.


the last time kise hears his name, it’s slipping past his own lips, a strangled sound, a shallow rattle of a cough, voice strangled and barely there.

but kasamatsu hears it--the look of pure pain in his eyes, the tears beginning to spill from them--tells kise that.

kasamatsu’s hands are on his face, warm but shaking. “kise. kise, don’t...!”

they'd been doing well, but not well enough.

kasamatsu had been hit with a bullet in the leg, had told kise and the others to go ahead without him, he'd be fine, but something in kise had told him to stay, to try and help kasamatsu instead.

as kasamatsu was telling him to get moving and go kise had seen the bullet coming their way. he fired a shot at their enemy, taking him out, and pushed kasamatsu aside, but in the attempt it hit kise.

they'd been targets. this isn't a surprising result, but it's still painful.

"yukio," kise chokes out, and he wishes it sounded different than a dying breath. but--

"didn't i tell you to obey orders?"

he did, but in the end, kise couldn't leave him behind. "didn't want to leave you here..."

kasamatsu makes a strangled sounding noise, then pauses, like he's trying to recover, manages to say, "you did well. you should be proud of yourself."

he smiles, closes his eyes. he can feel kasamatsu's hands--warm but shaking--on his face. "i hope you get to go home, captain..."

in the end, he never finds out if kasamatsu does.
