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.

Format your comment in one of the following ways:

    Here is a BR Template Creator for your convenience if the textarea is confusing.

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!

Prompt: The Night Circus AU! Oikawa and Ushijima/or Iwaizumi are raised to be the best magicians by their eccentric mentors, who have made a bet on which one of them can train the best magician. They are fated to face each other one day under the guise of a magical circus that is gathering the best illusionists of the world. However, what they are unaware of is that their duel is meant to last until only one of them remains standing. Their fate is thrown off track when the two competitors fall in love.

Here's the synopsis of the book, in case anyone wants more information :)

"The circus arrives without warning. No announcements precede it. It is simply there, when yesterday it was not. Within the black-and-white striped canvas tents is an utterly unique experience full of breathtaking amazements. It is called Le Cirque des Rêves, and it is only open at night.

But behind the scenes, a fierce competition is underway: a duel between two young magicians, Celia and Marco, who have been trained since childhood expressly for this purpose by their mercurial instructors. Unbeknownst to them both, this is a game in which only one can be left standing. Despite the high stakes, Celia and Marco soon tumble headfirst into love, setting off a domino effect of dangerous consequences, and leaving the lives of everyone, from the performers to the patrons, hanging in the balance."

ok so there's like. no plot. but, waves hands

Rain and fog always brought him trouble.

Iwaizumi was a man of simple means. He loved a good suit, and a good drink. He could do with less mystery, but at least mystery paid. He kept an office in the glamorous part of downtown for it.

By a huge margin, dames were his business. Iwaizumi had to admit that, after a while, the pretty twists in tight dresses and netted hats all got the same. Most of them started with my husband.

It was dark when Iwaizumi got back to the office. The fog clouded the street and his tired eyes. His client would get no answers tonight.

"Got a light?"

The voice was low and smooth, and Iwaizumi saw someone leaning against the door of his office. Shadow covered his face, but he knew those long pins and hips. There was bulk about his stems there, and Iwaizumi knew the reason. Oikawa was always well-heeled and prepared for a firefight.

Vain, petty, and God's own layabout, Oikawa Tooru. Dressed like a real darb, even tonight, and Iwaizumi steps in close to him, inhales his cologne. Moves to unlock the door.

"Don't smoke," Iwaizumi answered. Oikawa put a flat hand on the lapel of Iwaizumi's jacket, looking friendly.

"No," he agreed. "You have other bad habits." He entered the office before Iwaizumi did, took off his jacket and draped it over the only desk in the room.

He looked different in lamplight. Less dangerous, more beautiful. Iwaizumi wondered if Oikawa always did this, moved fast on hot scoops to make the byline. Iwaizumi moved to the other side of his desk and poured for two.

"I try to avoid bad news." Iwaizumi took a sip, but he was more interested in watching Oikawa do the same. "Doesn't explain why you're here."

"What do you know! You're just a hatchet man." Oikawa licked his lips, scotch warming his smile. "You need more brains for this operation."

"God only know where yours are." Oikawa laughed at him for it, threw back his head and looked better than any dame and a half Iwaizumi had ever seen in that same office try.

"I have my assets." Iwaizumi knew Oikawa had chased the same leads, interrogation by any other name, and he was only here tonight to corroborate the facts. But he'll be damned if the reporter publishes first. His client had paid a million dollars for the truth, and Iwaizumi knew the value of a rich, golden silence. "Come on, then." Oikawa turned that smile on again. "What did you see today, hm?"

Iwaizumi took another drink, and sat down. Fog gathered on the street.

Ship: Iwaizumi Hajime/Oikawa Tooru
Fandom: Haikyuu!!
Major Tags: major character death, graphic depictions of violence, suicide
Other Tags: body horror (loss of body, change of body, disembodied voices), presence of crime syndicates, soft apocalypse,

Prompt: Transistor AU! (I suggest skipping through the movie version of the game here>https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xjhvfJGCrrE if you haven't played it, since it will be a lot clearer than the way I explain it. Please be careful as there is a suicide attempt at the end of the game (even though neither character technically die) The ending is happy I promise!)

After barely surviving an attack by the Camerata, a crime syndicate bent on 'rewriting' the city, Oikawa finds himself having to fight through hordes of 'process' machines in order to reach the ones responsible for his fate and retrieve his voice. He has to do so using the Transistor, a sword-like weapon now containing the soul, and consciousness, of his partner (and boyfriend) Iwaizumi Hajime, who stepped in front of him to save his life.

The story (would) focus on a talkative Iwaizumi Hajime mourning the loss of his physical presence in Oikawa's life, wondering if they'll ever be together again, and an Oikawa who cannot verbally respond to and comfort him.

Everyone knows the golden apples of the gods confer immortality on those who feast on them.

Mizuki knows the apples only confer immortality when dipped in the blood of an immortal.

There is ichor in Yuuta’s veins, golden and glowing. Mizuki has spilled it with his blades, lain Yuuta upon an altar and carved his delicate heart from between his butterfly breastbones. He has lifted Yuuta’s heart free from his body, aorta and lungs dangling like an umbilical cord and afterbirth. He has seen Yuuta live without a heart and breathe without lungs.

Fuji, the family names itself, and Fuji apples have always been the sweetest.

The first fruit, Yuuta tells Mizuki, held cells of divinity within them. The first tree, Yuuta whispers against Mizuki’s mouth, grew its roots through the skeleton of their ancestor.

To taste a Fuji apple is to taste divine bliss but to earn immortality takes more than a few bites of clean, crisp apple-flesh.

Their line is weakened through breeding with humans. The ichor that is Yuuta’s blood is no longer enough to give the gift of immortality, no matter how much Mizuki drinks. Mizuki powders Yuuta’s bones and grills thin slivers of his flesh to eat on thinner crisps but Mizuki still bleeds red.

So an apple it must be from the very first Fuji orchard, from the very first Fuji tree.

Yuuta promises he will bring one back for Mizuki from their next family gathering and with that, Mizuki will have to be content. He cannot outrun the dryads that guard their trees and fruits most jealousy. He cannot manipulate creatures whose modes of thought are so different to those of humans.

Yuuta, though, Yuuta is more human than not and he is Mizuki’s disciple. He will help Mizuki ascend to the godhood that should be his.

Mizuki lets Yuuta go to his family gathering and makes only one mistake. Right before Yuuta leaves, he tells Yuuta, “Give my regards to your brother.”

The jealousy that flashes murder-bright in Yuuta’s dark eyes immediately alerts Mizuki to his misstep but Yuuta is in the car and gone before Mizuki can amend it.

Still he does not fear. Still he does not understand.

He has his eyes on the prize and when Yuuta returns with his brother, Mizuki is too smitten to remember the apple.

He thinks Shuusuke is a gift, a sacrifice.

He thinks that even as Shuusuke nibbles at his heart.

Summoning rituals are all unique. Books hold the base of them, the incantations and sigils required to open a path from one world to the next, but what determines if a demon answers or not is the offerings.

Demons of lust are easy to summon; high quality bedsheets, kinky accessories, an opened jar of lube with just a little scooped out and they’ll come eagerly.

Of course, getting rid of them is a more difficult prospect. Mortals tire far quicker than incubi or succubi. Many a parent only discovered their teenager had been dabbling in the dark arts when they found the naked corpse with a face frozen in a rictus of delight.

Demons of pride are the second-most difficult to summon. Haughty creatures that they are, they will not come for supplicants who are too humble nor for those who are too arrogant. A delicate balance must be struck between beseeching and begging and those who succeed in summoning a pride demon must be prepared to sacrifice all self-respect.

(Demons of sloth are actually the hardest to summon. They’re just too lazy to come. And if they do come, they’re too lazy to leave.)

Inui has carefully researched all the different sorts of demons that can be summoned and how to do so. With perfect data, how can his summoning be less than perfect?

A demon of wrath, such as the one he seeks to summon today, requires offerings born of rage. Inui has collected his carefully. Here is blood from the opponent who spat blood onto the court in a gesture of rage that will now be his downfall. Here is the boy’s tooth that fell out with the blood. Blood, bone and – Inui thinks of the boy, fills his heart with hate, and carves off a thin sliver from the inside of his thigh where it will not show – flesh. The blood and bone of his target. The flesh of his own body, to show what he is willing to sacrifice.

He piles them in the center of the summoning circle and begins.

By the end of his chant, the circle is filled with wavering smoke that gradually coalesces into the lean body of a teenage male, white haired and red-skinned. The whites of his eyes are red and within them glow tiny toxic pupils, green as gangrene. He has no horns, no forked tail, but his smile is the downfall of nations.

“And what do you want, mortal?” He asks in a voice that is the laughter of dying infants.

Inui cannot help but think he has made a terrible mistake.

In a far away kingdom, there lived a king who had at a young age taken off to see the world, married a commoner and then come back with a son.

The people had not been impressed. The courtiers had been even less impressed.

However, rather than scold their wayward ruler and possibly make him leave again, they held their tongues and hoped that the boy would turn out better than his father had.

Much to their disappointment, Ryoma had one interest in life and one interest alone: tennis.

In vain his advisor, Tezuka, told him to keep his guard up! Ryoma would go to the tennis court so early that even his personal guards, Taka and Momo, weren’t awake yet to protect him.

The fact that the only attempts to assassinate him had been stymied when Ryoma smashed tennis balls into their faces meant that Tezuka couldn’t even protest too much.

Fuji handled the diplomatic dealings of the kingdom with a deft touch, making up for the lack of attention from Ryoma and his father, but there were some things that he absolutely could not do for Ryoma – like get married.

When he finally arranged for Princess Sakuno from a neighboring kingdom to be Ryoma’s bride, the whole court was on tenterhooks to see what the stubborn prince could say.

“Your Highness,” Fuji said as he presented Ryoma with a sheaf of documents to read, knowing even as he did so that Ryoma would only glance at them, “I have good news. I have arranged a match for you with Princess Sakuno of the Ryuuzaki kingdom. She’ll be arriving at noon.”

“Princess Sakuno?” Ryoma said, leafing through the papers too quickly to have possibly read them. “Okay. Tell her that I’ll be at the tennis court when she arrives.”

“You really should greet her yourself,” Fuji said mildly, unwilling to push too much when Ryoma had taken the news of the engagement so calmly.

Ryoma shrugged, pushed the papers back at Fuji and left. There was a perfectly up-kept grass tennis court waiting for him. As always, Momo and Taka hurried after him.

Fuji sighed but consoled himself with the thought that maybe Ryoma would grow up a little once he was married.

--------------------


When the princess arrived at the tennis court, clad in a beautiful gown of pink and white silk, Ryoma gave her an unimpressed look.

“Where’s your racket?”

“Racket?” Sakuno repeated, taking in the sight of her husband-to-be.

“Yes. You’ve come for a match, haven’t you?”

As understanding dawned on the court, not a soul dared to look at Fuji.

Prompt: I guess vaguely based on Astronaut!Nagisa, but Scifi AU- Nagisa and Rei (and the rest of the Free! team if you'd like!) have gone on some kind of space mission where something goes wrong, and Rei is injured and infected with some kind of alien genetics which partially spread over his body (think: lite District 9). Nagisa has to reassure a normally beauty-obsessed Rei that he's still beautiful despite it.

This started as a description and turned into a whole process. (I'm so sorry.)

***


The worst part was what happened to Rei’s spine. Nagisa had heard the bones crunching together, and Rei had spasmed and screamed in agony and eventually passed out.

When Nagisa checked for injury there was something growing out of his back. His skin had split and there were scales like shiny beetle shells jutting out. The skin around them was dry and stiff, like a callus, and Nagisa had a horrible vision of Rei’s entire skin molting off and a stranger climbing out of it.

Nagisa had been left alone a little too long, checking Rei’s vitals every few minutes and trying to work out a plan. If Rei didn’t get up again, if he couldn’t get up again, Nagisa had to find a way to get him home safely.

It was all he could do not to fling himself on Rei in relief when he finally opened his eyes. He confirmed Rei wasn’t paralyzed, helped Rei to his feet, and then latched onto him.

Rei was shorter. In the span of an hour the difference between their heights had been cut to less than half, and suddenly Nagisa was no longer poised to nuzzle at his favorite sensitive spot under Rei’s jaw.

The last time he’d been in Rei’s arms was shortly after they made it safely into the nesting complex. Maybe the wind had chewed away the foundation, because if felt like the entire building tilted, slid, and then crashed down flat again. Rei had grabbed him a second before one of the metal rods hung with curtains of eggs had come down on them. It had ripped though Rei’s suit and leave a bloody gash across his back.

There were other things to worry about than Rei’s height. Within half an hour he’d stripped Rei naked because his skin was peeling off and there was no stopping it. Nagisa had to keep cutting it because otherwise it would split down to areas of still-living skin and then it would bleed.

Rei wasn’t much help. He didn’t want to look at himself. He alternated between despair and bargaining. There must be something that would make it stop. What if he just sewed up what was left of his skin? What if they called for help? This must be why the Lepidopterans didn’t let humans in their nesting complexes.

Nagisa could apologize for dragging Rei off into space and to this planet and on this expedition, but he wasn’t going to regret that last step. There had been nowhere else to take shelter and they had no protective clothing that could prevent the sandstorms here from chewing flesh from bone.

“You shouldn’t have to look at me. I should go away where you don’t have to look at me anymore,” Rei whimpered at one point.

There was nowhere to go. There was the climate control room they had holed up in and six egg chambers around it, and leaving the building was certain death.

“Is that what you’d tell me to do if it was me? Go away where you don’t have to look at me?”

Rei wouldn’t meet his eyes.

“Would you tell me to go outside so you don’t have to look at me again?”

“No! How could I say that to you?!”

“Then you’re not allowed to say it to yourself!” Nagisa latched on to Rei and clung. “If anything happened to you I’d destroy this whole planet and then myself.”

Rei hugged him back, which helped. “You can’t say that. Something already happened to me.”

“You know what I mean. If I lose my Rei-chan.”

Rei was silent. Nagisa stoked his hair, then stopped when he realized it was quickly falling out.

“Lepidopterans molt, don’t they? How long does that take?”

“Converted to our time: six hours eighteen minutes to eight hours forty-nine minutes. Approximately,” Rei answered with a crispness that said he had just done the conversion in his head. Too bad Nagisa didn’t have a pile of things like that to distract him with. Rei had been doing better when he was trying to invent a way to repair their connection to the subterranean cables and call for help without going outside and dying.

Nagisa lost track of the hours almost immediately as he helped Rei out of his skin, and sometimes more than skin. His feet split midway down while his toes went dead and sloughed off and Nagisa tried to focus on the fact that it wasn’t physically hurting Rei and not the fact that he was taking away tendon and bone. The last joint of each finger went the same way, and when Nagisa got the dead skin off Rei’s hands had already split neatly between middle and ring fingers to allow for a type of dexterity he had no idea how to use.

Rei did try to help, but once his hands went stiff under dead skin and then changed, there wasn’t a lot he could do.

The sandstorm was a blessing in its own way because there was nothing else for Nagisa to focus on. If he’d had to split his attention with anything else he couldn’t have done it. He could focus on only Rei. He keep doing the next thing and then the next until he finally peeled off the last pieces of what had been Rei’s face, and dimly realized that there was nothing left to do. He was looking at all of Rei for the first time in what felt like forever.

His new skin was iridescent blue-green. Up his spine and around his middle there were hard, oval scales, but on the rest of his skin they flowed together. Around his eyes and down his throat and chest the color darkened to a black that held rainbows in the light.

It felt like the change had taken a lot away and given nothing back. His toes and the outside part of his ears and most of his nose were gone. His chest had compressed upward and something was wrong there that Nagisa couldn’t figure out by touch, but the last few floating ribs had been shoved outward and threatened to piece the skin. Several joints had reorganized themselves under his skin. Nagisa would catch a glimpse of Rei’s hands or knees when he moved and something in the back of his head jolted because knees should not bend like that.

Yet with all that he was still human-shaped. He still had only one pair each of knees and elbows, and only ten fingers. No feathery antennae curled up from the back of his head or fanned around his jaw. No bright wings folded against his sides and back. (Lepidopterans used them for communication rather than flying, but the name had stuck. Their word for humans was approximately “kkkn-flash lowest set of wings-nnn” and Nagisa’s curiosity as to what that actually meant had gone unsatiated.)

Nagisa thought it was a great injustice in the universe that after all that Rei didn’t have wings.

“I can’t. . .” Rei had been tentatively looking at his own body, but he was shaking. He lifted a hand to his face as if to adjust his missing glasses and jerked it away again.

“What happened? Can you see?”

“I can’t close my eyes!” Rei cried in horror. He couldn’t cover them, either, with what had happened to his hands.

Nagisa cupped his hands over Rei’s face, at least to help him calm down.

“I’m hideous. I don’t even look like a Lepidopteran. I’m just this mangled thing.” Rei’s voice rose with an edge of hysteria. “I understand what you were trying to say, but I’m grotesque. I can’t even look at myself without feeling sick. How can you stand to look at me like that?”

“Like what? Like I love you?” Nagisa kissed his forehead. The new skin felt different, supple elastic over muscle, and it made him briefly curious about touching Rei in other places. For the moment he sat back and looked hard at Rei’s changed face for a few seconds to make sure he meant it when he said the words, “Or like you’re beautiful?”

“I am not.”

“Yes you are.”

“I cannot have his argument with you right now,” Rei cried.

“Good. That means I win.”

“It does not!”

“I win. You’re beautiful.”

If Rei had been in a different mood they could have gone around that way a couple more times, but he just gave a miserable moan.

“You’re a beautiful color. You’re all blue, and you shine in the light like a butterfly’s wing. Do you want to see?”

It took a few minutes to calm Rei to the point where he would agree to look, and much longer to introduce him to his new skin. Rei could tentatively appreciate the perfect iridescent sheen. And here and there were an old scar would have been there were bright veins of opal. They ran along his hands and between his fingers, which was the only reason he could stand to look at them. Introducing him to a mirror was not going to be a fun process.

Rei eventually subsided to the point where he would allow that he might not be the single worst horror to exist. He was probably still waiting for Nagisa to flinch away or cry, but Nagisa was momentarily engrossed in investigating the taut scales over his stomach versus the rippled skin stretched over his muscular chest verses his softer face.

“I’m sure there is no species in the galaxy that finds this attractive,” Rei said after a few minutes, as if testing out self loathing again.

“Fine. No alien’s going to steal my man!”

“You say that like you’re serious.”

Nagisa stared Rei in the eyes, daring him to doubt that Nagisa would fight someone over him.

Rei started laughing. There was a ragged edge to it, but it was a laugh nonetheless. He rested his forehead on Nagisa’s shoulder and laughed and gasped and stuttered into a laugh again.

Nagisa was going to let him catch his breath before saying anything, but Rei beat him to it.

“I wouldn’t let anyone ‘steal’ me.”

“Not even if we found a civilization that thinks you’re so beautiful they decide you’re a god?”

“That is not going to happen. But in the completely impossible event it did, no. You wouldn’t either, right?”

“I would tell everyone you’re my beautiful consort and should be treated like a god too.”

“You would, wouldn’t you?”

“Of course!”

Rei laughed again, like the weary sound of a cyborg joint winding down, and finally asked, “Now what?”

“Wait until it’s safe and go back to the ship?” Somewhere in there was the question of if Rei could stand and walk, and if his protective clothing would still fit him well enough.

At some point Nagisa would have to acknowledge the places where Rei’s skin was stiffening like a beetle’s wing covers. If they shattered into stained glass wings, at least that was the one change that shouldn’t traumatize Rei too badly.

Nagisa took his hands away from the possible wings. Rei was still here and whole and trying to talk calmly about how they would locate and reach the ship if it was buried, and Nagisa truly loved every last inch of him.

Right now, Nagisa didn’t know how many more pieces of Rei he could stand to lose.
