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.

Bonus round shenanigans all happen in the comments below. Brand-new works only, please.

Required Work Minimums:

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).

The man stormed into the shop, jerking the door open roughly so that the bell clanged and then doing his best to slam it. The door, however, was a slow heavy thing, designed not to close quickly, and his attempts to slam the door were merely comic.

From behind the counter, Kise watched with a suppressed smile. Husband caught cheating? That was the most common reason that angry men stormed into a flower shop. Though in that case, they usually looked a little panicked as well and this guy seemed to have full control of his emotions…

The man stalked up to the counter, slammed his credit card down onto the counter as if he wanted to break it and glowered at Kise.

“I need a bouquet,” he said.

“Most people who come in here do,” Kise agreed with his best customer-service smile. “Is there any specific sort of bouquet you want?”

“Fuck you.” The man enunciated the words carefully.

Kise bit back the urge to laugh but he couldn’t suppress the urge to troll the man just a little.

“I’m flattered, sir, but it takes more than a bouquet to--”

“I didn’t mean that!” The man interrupted, now outright glaring. “I want a bouquet that if someone gets it, they’ll know I’m pissed. Your ugliest, stinkiest flowers. Do you have any that are poisonous to touch? Or poison ivy and stinging nettles? That kind of thing. I want a ‘fuck you, I hate you, you bastard’ bouquet.”

“...We don’t sell ugly or stinky flowers here,” Kise said after a second of wondering whether his least favorite flowers (roses, they were the blood diamonds of the flower world) would be considered appropriate if he explained their backstory. Probably not. “And I can’t let you root around in our Dumpster. And we definitely do not have any poison ivy or stinging nettles!”

“Then just - use that flower language thing. About red roses meaning love, white roses meaning innocence, that stuff. Make a bouquet that says I hate you,” the man said firmly.

Kise briefly considered pointing out that nobody, upon receiving a bouquet, was going to google the meanings of the flowers. He didn’t mind making love bouquets and good luck bouquets because he knew the deliverer would explain the bouquets as they gave them over. This, though…

He might as well just get rid of the flowers that weren’t selling by cramming them into a bouquet. The boquet would probably end up in the trash within seconds if the hatred was mutual anyway.

Still, there was such a thing as professional pride.

“Just a minute, sir,” Kise said with a sweet smile. He bustled about and within minutes, he had finished and rung up a bouquet that he passed over to the customer. “Here you go!”

“And you’re sure it says fuck you?” The man asked, clutching it to his chest.

“Oh yes. Geraniums for stupidity, foxglove for insincerity, meadowsweet for uselessness and all of it ringed with orange lilies for hatred,” Kise reassured the man and then against his better judgment asked, “...May I ask what the recipient did?”

“He kicked me off our basketball team,” the customer said bitterly before stomping out through the door again. On his way out, he kicked a perfectly innocent bucket of fuchsia hyacinths, making Kise wish he’d triple-charged instead of just double-charging.

Like most things, the first time is the hardest.

They hadn't managed to get that final check during the last round and Chinatsu knows who had denied them that.

They are waiting at the train station with their luggages in hand, their makeup and hair still impeccably placed. She had asked Tatara to watch her luggage while she ran off to the toilet for a bit when she saw him.

She doesn't know what happens but—

One moment there had been a collision, a small bump, just enough to send a lean man of fifty off balance and into the way of the incoming train. Then there was the incessant ringing of the train arrival bell, followed by the sudden screech of hot metal against metal.

Chinatsu slips back into place beside Tatara. He looks slightly sick and yet his eyes are fixed intently on the commotion on the train tracks where a man lies in a dead faint right in the way of the stopped train.

"Did you see that? He nearly got crushed by the train," Tatara tells her as she takes her luggage from him, still riveted to the sight.

"I did. How awful," she says and brushes off an invisible piece of lint on her jacket, her hands shaking then steady as they drop to her sides.

There are things they haven't quite worked out on the dance floor, their movements still out of sync, misaligned, clashing. But Tatara looks at her with the same eyes she recognises in herself.

Too bad, Tatara seems to say, his eyes burning cold with the desire to win and the desire to do anything to win.

---

They aren't going to make it through the heats when the couple to beat isn't them but a pair who is older, more experienced and better than them.

"I need to go to the toilet," Chinatsu announces after doing up her makeup and getting Tatara to zip her up into her dress.

"Okay. Take your time, Chi-chan," Tatara tells her and she feels his eyes on her all the way out the door.

They make it through the heats easily with the help of Hyoudou Marisa's spartan training and the absence of the couple to beat.

They had found the missing woman later in the day when the competition was over, crumpled in a heap right below an open window four storeys down. She was still in her competition dress, her hair beautifully coiled, her face perfectly painted and her neck bent at an odd angle to her body.

It was suicide, they had whispered. The pressure had gotten to her. She had been having problems with her marriage. Her dance partner had been involved. They could have gotten far. What a shame.

"Too bad we didn't get a chance to face off against them." Chinatsu nudges Tatara on the train home that day without really looking at him.

"Too bad," Tatara echoes without looking back at her either, his eyes fixed straight ahead.

---

Kugimiya starts avoiding them, which doesn't really come as a surprise considering how much he seems to resent Tatara.

But recently, it has been different.

Whenever he catches them at the same venue, Kugiyama's scowl deepens and he drags Idogawa in the opposite direction without so much as a word. He never leaves her side any more, to her bemusement and to their annoyance.

"Who are they?" Chinatsu asks, intrigued as a pair of young boys swarm Kugiyama before they catch sight of Tatara with twin grins of malicious glee.

"His cousins," Tatara says, his face mildly pleasant and slightly apprehensive as the boys make a beeline for him. But Chinatsu can sense a different kind of emotion building up inside him, something like exhilaration, like hunger, like desperation.

She feels it too. They may not be the greatest partners on the dance floor but in this they are united seamlessly. Oh, the irony.

"Why don't you go say hi to them?" Chinatsu suggests.

---

Kugiyama stops coming to Marisa's studio. They hear that he has moved. This place holds too many bad memories for him. He still participates in competitions but without the same flair or enthusiasm. Loss does that to a person. Two losses at once breaks a person. Chinatsu finds it remarkable that Kugiyama can still bear to step onto a dance floor.

The ballroom dancing scene has changed. Too many accidents, too many injuries, too many sudden deaths. Has the competition been taken too far?

"You'll watch out for yourself and Tatara, won't you, Chinatsu?" her mother asks her nervously before she leaves for another competition, a local one this time, closer to home and less people to deal with.

"We'll be fine," she brushes off, ever the irritable teenager.

Not all the accidents have been caused by them. Chinatsu knows to keep her wits sharp and her fists ready when a fellow competitor approaches her. The pins in her hair aren't only there to make her look pretty.

Tatara knows that too. Chinatsu makes him keep pins on the inside of his sleeves because he is so small compared to the rest she knows that he won't make it out of a battle of pure strength.

The ballroom dancing scene has changed. The competition lasts even outside the dance floor. There is blood on and off the floor.

But if they can watch their feet and take careful steps, they can survive through this. They can win.

Hinata's eyes narrow. "Listen, I'm not him, so you need to stop staring at me like you've seen a ghost."

Kageyama blushes furiously down at the table. Hinata relates, because he has been furiously texting everyone he knows about this strange tall kid who nearly bowled him over bowing so deep at the waist that Hinata was embarrassed, going on about a murder and a coverup and a vassal, and all Hinata had been trying to do was get bubble tea.

Now, he has both bubble tea and a six-foot stalker named Kageyama who thinks he is from ancient history, and bothers to dress like one, too. With a full samurai sword and everything. Who somehow Hinata believes wholeheartedly. Who doesn't know what to do with a straw.

Of course the only person who responded was Tsukishima.

what's happening now texts Tsukishima.

HE DOESN'T KNOW WHAT TO DO WITH A STRAW

Tsukishima wastes no time. I'm sure you can teach someone how to suck

Hinata feels his face pull into his traditional Tsukishima Expression and he stuffs the phone back in his pocket. He squints at Kageyama some more. Kageyama, who had a hard enough time with air conditioning and money was now beside himself sitting at a tall, white glossy round table across from Hinata, who had ordered him green tea with tapioca pearls, because Hinata couldn't think of anything else to do for this teenager having a crisis.

"You -- you put it in your mouth, like this?" Hinata demonstrates. "And then you suck?"

"You. Suck?"

"With your -- your tongue? You just--" Hinata makes a big show of closing his lips around the straw and hollowing out his cheeks for dramatic effect in a move he knows Tanaka-senpai would've found hilarious, and stops when he sees one of the thick pearls popping up the straw. He sticks his thumb on the top really quick and pulls the straw out. "See? You suck, and then the bubbles go up, and then you chew on them."

Kageyama looks deeply overwhelmed.

"You were dead."

Hinata groans and sets his drink down again.

"You were dead, you are -- you are exactly like -- this is -- I made a -- a deal brought me here to find him and you must be him, that's how this works, that's how -- "

"I am Hinata Shouyou!" he shouts, and jumps to his feet in the little shop. "I play volleyball at Karasuno High School and I'm not very good at it. I have no idea what to do with a sword! I have a little sister and I live on a big mountain in the woods, and you!" -- he points at Kageyama's face -- "You made a bad deal, and now you're stuck, so you might as well drink your tea!"

Kageyama is flabbergasted. Hinata sits down, picks up Kageyama's drink, and shoves it in his face.

"You put the straw in your mouth and suck. THEN! We will try to find your whatever."

Kageyama sits in stunned silence, takes the drink from Hinata's fingers, and closes his mouth around the straw.

He meets a "wolf boy" who he named Iwa-chan. Oikawa teaches him how to act human. Iwa-chan soon falls in love with Oikawa, the only person to ever show him affection, and the only one who is not afraid of his bestial instincts.

“They’re nothing,” says Riko, breath falling from her lips afterward as if to punctuate it.

Satsuki nods, checking her clipboard. She can see Riko looking at her out of the corner of her eye, a slight flush painting her cheeks. Riko can squawk all she wants about being older and wiser; she’s still pretty cute—especially like this, when she’s all fired up and ready to go.

“Kick their asses, boys,” says Riko.

“Your wish is our command,” says Imayoshi.

Riko looks like she might murder him, but Satsuki knows she won’t. Even if she really felt like it, she needs him too much for basketball right now.

The boys get off to a fast break against Seihou, clearly unaffected by their conditioning and technique. Seihou’s not rattled, not yet; Satsuki doesn’t need them to be—but to watch Riko watch them clearly off-balance, her knuckles relaxing on the clipboard and the smirk easy on her face like a well-worn recliner leaning back. Satsuki calls time.

“What are you doing?” says Riko. “It’ll only let them catch their breaths.”

“You’ll see,” says Satsuki.

The plan she outlines is deceptively simple, getting the ball to Wakamatsu in rapid fire and letting him sink a couple of dunks. It’s something they might have run on their own, but never repeated over and over like this, a broken record and a jumping needle, sapping away what remains of the strong Seihou spirit like sitting on an air bed with a hole in it.

Seihou crumples almost immediately, falling back to the Touou onslaught. It’s almost poetic and certainly beautiful, each dunk and block and steal and aggression, teeth sinking into prey. And Riko, on the bench, is practically glowing, face illuminated in the neat frame of her hair, smile on her face, team jacket slipped from her shoulders.

Touou’s win is total and complete. Satsuki notes the point totals, the stats and baskets, on her scorecard, but she can’t say she really remembers because she’s too focused on Riko.

“Hey,” Riko says, afterward, while they wait for the boys to get out of the locker room. “You’re paying attention, right?”

Satsuki hands over the scorecard; Riko frowns at it.

“No errors. As always.” (From Riko, that’s close to a compliment.)

And then, suddenly, Riko’s hand on her shoulder (suddenly Satsuki wishes she wasn’t wearing her hoodie). Riko stands on her toes, fingers brushing through Satsuki’s hair, and pecks her on the lips.

“I think I deserve a little more than that,” says Satsuki.

Riko folds her arms across the chest, as bold as challenge to take it if she wants it as Satsuki’s ever seen. She doesn’t need telling twice.

Prompt: Florist AU. Futakuchi goes to the florist to get a passive-aggressive FUCK YOU bouquet that he saw online for someone (I’m thinking Oikawa or Kamasaki, but it’s up to you). The florist is totally judging him.

i could not resist this

quick flower notes: geraniums (stupidity), foxglove (insincerity), meadowsweet (uselessness), yellow carnations (you have disappointed me), and orange lilies (hatred)

***

It's nearing four in the afternoon when a customer strides into the store, glancing past the succulents display by the entrance, ducking under the grape ivy hanging baskets, and brushing against the unopened buds of a cluster of lilies, before coming to a stop at the counter, where Osamu has spread the day’s edition of the Kobe Shimbun across the the entire surface and is in the middle of examining an advertisement for a new flavour of ice cream.

The customer slaps a ten-thousand yen note right over ‘limited time only!’ with such force that the yellow freesia cutting by the cashier - Atsumu’s choice of the day - shudders in its glass of water. Osamu looks up.

“I’m looking for some flowers,” the customer says.

Osamu shifts the freesia away from the counter’s edge, and thinks about asking the customer to use his eyes. Out loud, he says, “For what occasion, sir?”

The customer visibly blanches. “Ugh, 'sir' - it’s Futakuchi. And it’s not a special occasion, it’s for a guy.”

“Well, Futakuchi-san,” Osamu says in his most polite tone, “we have a large range of bouquets that you can choose from.” He tugs at the edge of the newspaper discreetly, but Futakuchi’s hand is still firmly rested on the counter. “Does he have a favourite colour?”

“How should I know?” Futakuchi shakes his head, his long fringe flicking from the motion. “Anyway, no, not like that. This guy’s a total asshole and insults are useless against him. Half the time, he doesn't even realise you're insulting him.” He huffs, which blows his fringe out of his eyes. “Long story short, I need to passively aggressively say ‘fuck you’ in flowers."

“What?”

“I saw someone do it online. You can do it, right?”

Osamu hears the faint sound of snickering from the back room, which means Atsumu’s listening and definitely not doing accounts like he’s supposed to be doing.

“Most people don’t know flower language. It’ll probably just look like nice flowers to him,” Osamu says, meaning, I have no idea what you’re talking about.

“Don’t worry, this guy’s a complete plant nerd.” Futakuchi pulls a face. “And disgustingly smart, in a way. He’ll figure it out.”

Osamu changes tactics. “Depending on the complexity of your request, the price range of a custom bouquet can vary quite a lot.”

Futakuchi waves the ten-thousand yen note in the air. “I got paid yesterday. He told me that I was ‘wasting my potential’. Trust me, revenge against that jerk is worth it.” The snickering from the back room increases.

Osamu casts a very obvious look at the clock. “I will have to check our queue of orders for the afternoon, Futakuchi-san, and see if we can fit in your request for today.”

Futakuchi raises an eyebrow. “Right, in between your very important newspaper-reading sessions, yeah?” The sarcasm drips off his voice; damn, petty and perceptive, Osamu notes.

Atsumu, of course, chooses this moment to appear from the back room. “Oi, ‘Samu.” Futakuchi visibly starts, looking between Osamu and his twin behind him. “C’mon, this is too good to turn down. You've got nothing better to do anyway.”

Osamu doesn't need to turn in his seat to see the smug grin on Atsumu's face. He does so anyway, so he can glare at him. Atsumu smiles sunnily, unaffected as always, and drapes an arm over his shoulder.

“Don't worry, Futakuchi-kun. ‘Samu here is an expert in passive aggression – ow, I mean, in making bouquets that will tell your special someone exactly what you're feeling.” Futakuchi tries to protest that, but Atsumu – as he does – talks over him. “You're in good hands, promise~!”

Osamu suppresses a sigh and stands up, shrugging off Atsumu. “C’mon,” he says to Futakuchi. “Let's see what I can do for you, Futakuchi-san.”




bonus:

Futakuchi eyes the cluster of flowers critically.

“Can we make the disappointment flowers stand out a bit more? I really want to make that clear, you know?”

Wordlessly, Osamu adds another cutting of yellow carnations, tucking it behind the frothy sprays of meadowsweet. He adjusts the lilies too, to balance it out. The orange and yellow make a very pleasing combo, filled out around the edges by the meadowsweet and enhanced by the delicate white bells of the foxglove and the soft blooms of the geraniums.

As far as ‘fuck you’ bouquets go, it's quite beautiful. Anyone would be pleased to receive an arrangement like this.

Futakuchi nods. “Cool. Just as a last jab, can you use a purple wrapping paper for it? It's his favourite colour.”

This time, Atsumu doesn't even try to hide his laughter.
