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:

If PROMPTING:If FILLING:If FILLING as a TEAM GRANDSTAND participant:
PROMPT: TEAM [YOUR SHIP]
  • Replace [YOUR SHIP] with the name of the team you belong to. Any way you format it is fine.
  • Copy/paste/fill out the following form into your comment box. Delete the guidance text that's in parentheses. Make sure you use tags.

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

FILL: TEAM [YOUR SHIP], [RATING]
  • Replace [YOUR SHIP] with the name of the team you belong to. Any way you format it is fine.
  • Replace RATING with the rating of your fill (G - E)
  • Copy/paste/fill out the following form into your comment box. Delete the guidance text that's in parentheses. Make sure you use tags.

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

  • NSFW FILLS: Please cross-link these fills and tag them clearly. [community profile] saso_afterhours is open to all NSFW fills.
    • Written/text fills can be hosted on AO3 or [community profile] saso_afterhours ONLY.
    • Art/visual fills can be hosted anywhere; you may include a small safe-for-work thumbnail of the fill in your comment.

    • Written/text fills can be hosted on AO3 or [community profile] saso_afterhours ONLY.
    • Art/visual fills can be hosted anywhere; you may include a small safe-for-work thumbnail of the fill in your comment.


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!

“Heeeey, Wakatoshi!” Satori called out as he slapped the water with his hand. He was a few hours early, thanks to school being a half-day, but this was the spot where Wakatoshi normally met him after class. If he was going to find Wakatoshi anyway, it’d be here!

The sun beat down against his bare shoulders as he half-hung out of the boat, peering at the turquoise waves and into the depths below. He’d stripped down already, dressed only in his purple swim trunks, and the water looked inviting.

It wasn’t safe to swim here without Wakatoshi though. The undertow was too dangerous, sometimes even wrecking small boats that didn’t know to steer away from the current. It was why Satori practically had this entire section of the ocean to himself and why they always met here.

“Waaaaakaaaatooooooshiiiiiiiii!” He called out as if he were trying to summon a lost cat. If Wakatoshi were a land animal, Satori thought, he would definitely be a cat. An aloof, oversized cat who terrified even dogs.

“Your hayashi rice is going to get cold if you don’t come up soon!” He tried, thumping the container with his foot. He’d stopped by his favorite take out place to get hayashi rice to go, just for Wakatoshi. While he’d tried Wakatoshi on several foods, hayashi rice had been his favorite so far.

That was fine with Satori. It meant he could eat all the ice cream he wanted without having to share!

(Wakatoshi’s attempts to feed Satori in turn had been unsuccessful. While sushi was raw fish, it wasn’t raw whole fish that were still alive and flopping desperately in his hands. Satori had ended up insisting that humans couldn’t eat things that were still alive and then Wakatoshi had bit off its head and – well. Suffice it to say, Satori was now the one in charge of providing them with meals.)

The water rippled, then a shadow could be seen. Seconds later, Wakatoshi pushed his way through the water’s surface and draped his strong arms over the edge of the boat. Water glistened on his skin, the gills at his throat tucking themselves tightly shut.

“You’re early,” Wakatoshi observed.

“Hello to you too,” Satori replied with a laugh, leaning down to press his mouth against Wakatoshi’s in a cold kiss. Behind Wakatoshi’s lips, he could feel the hungry press of the mermaid’s triangular teeth.

See, I imagine that since you can't cook underwater (though you can freeze stuff, if you dive to sufficient depths), Ushijima is 100% FASCINATED by human foods. Especially things with textures that wouldn't work underwater, like meringue.

So basically Tendou has this daily ritual where he stops by convenience stores o bakeries and grabs something for Ushijima to try. And on special days, he gets takeout from a restaurant for Ushijima to try. And it's their little ritual and Tendou just really enjoys watching Ushijima experience all these new things.
