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)

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 prompt killed me

***

In Atsushi's point of view, sweets are paramount, and everything else secondary. Normally, nothing would be able to distract him on his daily candy run, debating the merits of trying out the new chili pepper chocolate versus sticking to the less adventurous fare. Normally, the prospect of discovering something new wins out, but he's hesitant about potentially damaging his taste buds. What's a culinary student to do if he can't try out his own food?

Normally, nothing can permeate the zone he subconsciously builds around himself, but it's not every day that he hears a familiar voice coming from the overhead speakers of the candy shop.

All thoughts of chocolate bars and gummy worms take a merry exit out of his mind, and all he can say is a flat and resounding, "what."

-

It's not something he thought he'd ever do, and definitely not something anyone thought he'd ever do. Boredom and curiosity after watching too many cartoons—the only background noise he tolerates while baking—had led to him scouting forums and online archives, and not long after, getting a little too into it. Call it a hobby, call it a sexual awakening.

Turns out baking isn't the only thing he's got a knack for.

Some (most) of the comments he receives are annoying, demanding the next chapter or telling him to write more. He would've stopped long ago, except.

There's a certain person... a certain voice that he wants to keep hearing, even if it's weird to hear his words said aloud. Every time he posts something new, a notification shows up in his email in less than a week, that voice acting out his scenes like a one-man play.

It's still annoying, but not in the usual way. Not like he feels like crushing whoever it is.

Annoying, in a way addictions are annoying, making him want things even if they're more trouble than they're worth.

-

Now, that same voice surrounds him, silky as Belgian chocolate. The shopkeeper doesn't seem fazed by his question (all too accustomed to Atsushi's blunt disposition), answering it with a little too fondness in her tone.

"I know we don't usually listen to the radio here, Acchan, but we're making an exception for him! He sounds like a movie star, doesn't he? We're betting he looks like one too."

"Who?" asks Atsushi, ever so eloquent.

"Himuro-kun, from Mirage FM! He's a returnee, so he always has something to interesting to say about the American songs. Not to mention his voice."

"Hmm," hums Atsushi, noncommittal, hoping it doesn't sound too much like agreement. "I'll take these." He puts his choices on the counter, partly to stop Kaede-chin from gushing, and partly to determine whether his instincts are right.

Then, "are you ready for this?" says Himuro to build up hype for a track, and it's final.

Atsushi's used that exact phrase in one of his dialogues before.

-

"You," says Atsushi into his cell phone a few days later, delivery as flat as ever, uncaring that all of Tokyo can hear him.

"Me?" says Himuro, laughing his scripted radio-personality laugh. "That's certainly an interesting way of saying hello, caller number nine. Who do you want to give a shout out to today?"

"I already told you," says Atsushi, audibly irritated now. "You. You're that guy."

"I'm sorry?" says Himuro, still pleasant, but there's the slightest trace of confusion in his tone. "Have we met?"

"No. But you're the one who's been reading all my stories..."

"Do you have anyone else to greet, number nine, because we're running out of—"

"...and recording them. I know it's you."

"Aaand that's all the time we have! It was good to have you on the show!"

The call's abruptly dropped, and Atsushi can do nothing but frown at his phone. But before he can think of throwing it against the wall in frustration, it starts to ring, with an unfamiliar number on the screen. He picks up, wary.

"Hello?"

"Hi. Were you caller number nine?"

This is a surprise. Atsushi's on edge, but he's interested to see where this goes. "Yeah, and you're Muro-chin."

"Muro-ch— okay, listen. I'm sorry for hanging up, but I couldn't just let you reveal my... reading preferences on air. A guy's got to have secrets. Do you understand?"

"Uh-huh." Atsushi unwraps a lollipop one-handed and pops it into his mouth, sucking hard like he does when he's upset. "You didn't really like my stories."

"No! I... I love your stories. I just didn't..." Atsushi hears him sigh at the other end of the line. "I feel really bad about it, actually. Can I make it up to you? Is there a song you want to request?"

"Buy me candy."

"Excuse me?"

"Buy me candy."

There's that laughter again, though this time it's a lot more genuine. "All right, all right. I'll keep in touch. Candy it is." A pause, then, "what's your name?"

"Murasakibara Atsushi."

"Atsushi. I like that."

Atsushi likes it, too, the sound of his name in that voice, but this conversation's getting a bit embarrassing. "Keep your promise. Bye, Muro-chin."

This time, he's the first to hang up, lollipop cracked between his teeth and phone pressed against his thudding heart. He thinks of hearing that voice in person, imagines it whispering right against his ear, and promptly scowls.

What a pain.

The first thing that Mayuzumi says as he slides into the seat opposite Akashi is, "Our fanbases are actually at war with each other and it's annoying me. They keep tagging us in their petty tweet threads and I've had enough. We need to fix this."

Akashi, sipping a glass of red wine, lounging in his seat in this ridiculously fancy restaurant, hums softly in thought and replies with, "I've turned my twitter notifications off. Don't you even know how to do that much by yourself, Chihiro?"

"Don't," Mayuzumi says between clenched teeth. "Don't speak to me so familiarly. We're not friends."

"You would think, after all the time that we've been in the same twitter threads, that we would at least be good acquaintances by now." Akashi smiles at him, like he knows just how annoying he's being. He probably does; he speaks with the same, irritatingly smug tone that his writing has. As if he's the only one in the world who has ever been correct. I am absolute, reads his bio on twitter, on his personal review blog, and every other profile that Mayuzumi has hate-stalked over the past few weeks. Like it's some sort of tag line for him, and Mayuzumi wants nothing more than to tell him just how wrong he is, about light novels, about literature as a whole, and its place in society.

Now that he thinks about it, he probably already has. That's probably what started this entire war in the first place, and that's a mortifying thought; that it's all his fault and that their fans have just taken it and run, the way that they usually do with anything that Mayuzumi says. He usually puts more thought into this sort of thing because he hates when it blows up into something so big. He hates when it leads to him sitting directly opposite the man whose book reviews are treated like gold in the writing world, whose words make Mayuzumi want to punch him, whose face makes Mayuzumi want to punch him even more, for other, complex reasons that he doesn't know how to explain until he's written at least three stories about it.

(He's currently on his second. The first is with his editor, and she's sent him a series of very concerned emails about his current mental state. He replied earlier today with a single link, to Akashi's twitter, and it had earned him a simple, Ah.)

Ah, Mayuzumi thinks to himself, as he picks up the wine bottle, sitting in its cooler, and pours a liberal amount for himself. If they're going to find a way to fix this entire situation so he doesn't have to deal with both of their fanbases whenever he wants to go on the internet, he's going to need wine for it. Plenty of wine.

Phantom thief Manami is a hilarious but great thought

***

It’s his first day on the job, and Onoda’s legs are shaking. It should be an easy one— guard the door that leads towards the vault. The host of the building is holding a fancy party, and he doesn’t want anyone to walk off with his valuables. Onoda doesn’t know what sort of security is behind this thick door, but it’s something he knows he’s not ready for. The door opens with a key card in his back pocket, and all he has to do is act as a deterrent to any drunk patrons that stumble his way from the party. Not too hard.
He’s surrounded by people in fine suits and tailored dresses that are probably worth more than his yearly paycheck. Just being around these people is enough to dot his neck with sweat, even if they don’t talk to him. All except for one.
“You go biking too?”
“Yeah. To… Tokyo, sometimes.”
“That’s fun! I always go on the hills during my time off. Hills are really the best. Do you like slopes?”
He’s not sure if he can say he likes hills, only that he’s used to them. Long summer days biking up the path to his house, a collection of good in the front basket. “It’s what I’m used to?”
Still, the stranger hits him with smile, brighter than the easy one he had on before. “Really? That’s great! I didn’t think I’d meet another fan of bikes. What’s your name?”
“O-Onoda. Onoda Sakamichi.”
“You’re Onoda Sakamichi. And I’m Manami Sangaku. We match! Maybe it’s fate that we’ve met.”
That makes Onoda’s neck tense up as he wrings his hands. He’s used to standing for hours, but the balls of his feet suddenly feel sore. “And what do you do?” he struggles to get out, just to ease his racing heart.
“Mm, odd jobs, here and there. Not anything steady. But my last paycheck just came in. I should probably get some new shoes.”
Manami’s shoes are nice, but some rough patches have been smoothed over with shoe polish. Onoda recognizes the trick, because it’s something he’s done to his worn shoes many times. Onoda’s used his current suit through several jobs already. Manami’s looks freshly bought, but there’s a stain on one sleeve, and the other sleeve is rolled up to his elbow. He's smoothed out his hair, all except one strand of hair that refuses to stay down. Onoda can't tell if he's going for a formal or casual look.
Still, he likes the contradiction that's Manami. The other guests see a door, not a person, and pass by him like he doesn’t exist. To busy with deals to see faces.
"Oh. It's time." Manami pulls a crumpled receipt out of his pocket, and scribbles something on it. Onoda yelps as Manami closes the space between them in a second and drops the paper into his pocket. “Let’s get dinner sometime. Bring your bike!” Manami says, before swiping a glass of champagne off a passing tray and vanishing into the crowd.
Later, Onoda finds the key card replaced with a scrap paper with a phone number scribbled on it. When he turns on the news the next morning and sees the headlines blazing about the latest heist, he doesn’t need to call in to know that he’s been fired. He knows the culprit, he could do the right thing.
But the call goes through, and when a familiar, casual voice answers, Onoda’s not sure if he should tell the police after all.

um yes. i haven't seen lord of the rings in ages, but i?? did my best???

***

The fires of Mount Doom and the Black Gate are behind them, and the Ring is gone, it’s gone.

Mihashi thinks he should feel relieved, or victorious, perhaps. After carrying that awful thing halfway across Middle-Earth, after hearing it whisper in his dreams for so long, he’s finally free. He should feel something other than exhaustion.

Instead, everything seems muted, greyed out at the edges. It’s a little like the few times he slipped into that ghostly not-World, when he put on the Ring- though he tries not to think about it, tries to focus on putting one foot in front of another.

Honestly, he doesn’t have to try very hard. It’s an effort to just stay awake, considering Mihashi is exhausted and heavy and his hand is a throbbing ball of pain, and Abe is pulling him onwards like a horde of Uruk-hai are at their heels.

He clears his throat once, twice. “A-Abe-kun?”

Abe ignores him. Mihashi trips and stumbles on a loose pebble, but quickly regains his footing. Maybe he shouldn’t ask to stop- Abe always has a reason, right? Mihashi knows he wouldn’t have made it this far on his own, he trusts Abe with his life. But Abe’s grip is too tight on Mihashi’s good hand, and he doesn’t- he can’t continue like this.

“Abe-kun, can- can we stop?”

Abe stops like he’s hit a brick wall. Mihashi, who had just sped up to try and loosen the tautness between their arms- his shoulder aches- nearly crashes into his back instead.

As he wobbles, too tired to have any sense of balance, Abe whirls on him.

“Why, what’s wrong?” He barks, and Mihashi shrinks a little instinctively. “Is it your hand? Are you feeling dizzy? I knew I should have brought something to dull pain, I knew it-”

And Mihashi stands there in a daze, as Abe checks him over with vicious thoroughness, smacking a hand against his forehead to check for fever, peering closely into his eyes, growling unhappily at the dirty bandage around Mihashi’s left hand.

It takes him much too long to realise that Abe is shaking.

For the first time, Mihashi realises that Abe’s hand is ice cold around his wrist.

“Abe-kun?” he murmurs, interrupting the barrage of questions, “Are- are you alright?”

Abe drops Mihashi’s wrist like it burns him, and turns his head away- but not before Mihashi sees the way his face goes white under its tan, twists, crumples. Somewhere, despite his exhaustion, Mihashi still finds the energy to panic a little.

“Don’t-” Abe snaps, when Mihashi reaches for him. He looks like he regrets it, though, when Mihashi’s hands snap back against his chest. Softer but no less raw, he says, “Don’t- I- I’m fine, I just- I just want to go home, alright? I just. I want to go home.”

Somehow, he never thought that Abe would be as wrung out as he is. Mihashi feels like a plant left in the sun too long and leeched of moisture; limp and wilting. Of course Abe would want to go home.

Mihashi hasn’t thought of the Shire in what feels like a lifetime. It seems like a paradise dream, now, after everything he’s seen.

He doesn’t know if he can go back. Not with the taint of the Ring still so close.

But he understands why Abe would want to- he thinks of pretty Shinooka with her apple-round cheeks and bright eyes, thinks of Abe’s loud and loving family. Why wouldn’t Abe want to return?

Mihashi looks down at his dusty, scarred toes, and doesn’t have the strength to fight back the tears that come.

He can hear Abe’s horrified noise, and covers his face. His shoulders hitch, and his hand hurts, and the world blurs into a mess of grey and Mihashi cries, for the first time since they started this quest. He doesn’t know what he expects Abe to do- probably scold him, like all the times he did when they were faunts.

But instead strong arms wrap around his shoulders, and then Abe is pulling him in, to rest against his chest. Mihashi breathes in, the smell of smoke and sweat, and underneath it the smell of rich dark earth just after the rain, and just cries harder.

He doesn’t want to go home- not if it means giving up Abe to Shinooka, not if it means going home to an empty hobbit hole on Bagshot Row. What will he do? Will he dance at their wedding? Will he write a memoir? Will he learn to make lembas bread? Mihashi doesn’t know.

So he clings to Abe and cries and cries, while Abe makes shushing noises in his ear.

(Mihashi thinks he feels lips press against the crown of his head, but he’s surely imagining things.)

Seemingly hours later, when Mihashi’s sobs quieten to the occasional hiccup of breath, Abe murmurs, “Hey.”

Mihashi stiffens, and doesn’t answer.

“Mihashi. Tell me. Please.”

When Abe has that tone in his voice, nothing will dissuade him. Mihashi’s heard it too many times, all through his tweens and before. Abe won’t let him go without answering.

He muffles his answer in Abe’s shirt, twisting his hands in the rough fabric. “I don’t. I can’t go home. I can’t.”

“Why not?”

Why not, he says. “Because I- I-” Because he’ll have nothing if he does, and at least here, even if he’s dirty, tired, and in pain, he has this. “Because…”

“Mihashi-”

“Because I can’t give you back to Shinooka!”

Abe goes very, very still, and Mihashi feels a few more tears squeeze themselves from between his scrunched up eyelids. He holds on to Abe all the harder, because he knows at any moment Abe will step away, put some distance between them, and it’ll hurt. After all this time travelling together, looking out for each other, to have Abe pull away now will break him.

It almost makes Mihashi want to go back to being the Ringbearer, because he can’t imagine a life without Abe in it.

“What?” Abe sounds confused. “Shinooka? Who said anything about Shinooka?”

Mihashi grits his teeth, shaking his head. “You- you like her don’t you? If we go back, you’ll marry her.”

What?” Now, Abe’s hands slide to Mihashi’s biceps, pushing him away just enough that Mihashi has nowhere to hide. He keeps his head down instead, and his eyes closed. “Marry her- Mihashi what the hell are you talking about? I don’t want to marry Shinooka!”

Mihashi stills. Finally, he tilts his head up so he can search Abe’s face just a bit- and his heart thuds at the confusion he sees. “You… don’t?”

Abe growls a bit, but replies, “I don’t. How on earth do you even come up with these things?”

“B-but. You- you’re always asking her to dance, and- and everyone says it’s. Just a matter of time!”

Now, Abe is starting to look angry, and Mihashi cringes a little on instinct. “I don’t care what everyone says!” He snaps, “Shinooka and I are not- we’re not together, she doesn’t even like me that way, and anyway that’s stupid because I love-”

Mihashi looks up again, because Abe cut himself off so hard his teeth made an audible click as he shut his mouth.

“You… love someone, Abe-kun?”

And for all that he doesn’t want to give Abe up- Mihashi likes Shinooka. He doesn’t know what he’ll do if Abe’s fallen in love with someone who won’t let them remain friends.

“I-” There’s a flush crawling up Abe’s neck, now, visible even under the smears of soot from the volcano. “I- yes.”

Mihashi looks down and swipes a wrist over his eyes. “Oh.”

And suddenly, Abe makes an aggravated noise, the same one that always precedes I can’t believe I’m friends with you- and then his hands are on Mihashi’s face. Mihashi only manages to squeak, shocked, before Abe’s mouth covers his, clumsy in his fierceness.

Their teeth clack together painfully, and Abe pulls back, red-faced. But Mihashi just follows him, tilting his head just so and twining his good hand in Abe’s collar until they’re kissing again, the both of them more enthusiastic than skillful and not minding in the least.

Then Mihashi tries to lace his left hand through Abe’s hair, and bumps it against his skull instead.

Searing pain shoots up his arm. Mihashi doesn’t know what happens except that his vision blacks out, and the next thing he knows he’s on his knees with his hand cradled gingerly to his chest, vision sparking from the agony. He can’t hear Abe through the pounding of blood in his skull, but he doesn’t need to, to read the terror and worry in his face.

Then, a little painfully, Mihashi starts to giggle. And then to laugh.

They’re barely five miles from Mordor. Mihashi has been paralysed and made into a meal and possessed and had his finger bitten off, just in the last twenty-four hours. And Abe just kissed him. Mihashi doesn’t know how this is his life.

There are- maybe- tears welling in his eyes, but he’s just so suddenly, dizzyingly happy. He’s trembling with it when Abe sighs and wraps an arm around his head.

“Idiot,” he says, kissing his temple.

Mihashi cannot be certain, but he thinks the shadow left from the Nazgul blade may have lifted. Just a little.
