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.

    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!

since kinjou's pretty decent at crafts and sewing, things are a little different in this universe. (aka, kinjou doesn't roll a critical failure and poison himself on shells, and his friends love and cherish his gifts)

***

“Hey, guys! I made you all a little something!”

While Makishima was off learning to surf and Tadokoro was doing... Well, whatever it was he was doing, (scaring the daylights out of their crewmates- that's what it was,) Kinjou had busied himself with making a few gifts for his companions. The beach was filled with plenty of material, and with Kinjou's knowledge of both nature and arts & crafts, it seemed like the obvious choice.

“Oh, for real?” Makishima sits up with genuine interest, while his brother, Ren, made no attempt to move or even acknowledge something was happening. This was his relaxation time, dammit.

“Kinjou, you shouldn't have!” Tadokoro barks with a laugh, thumping a strong hand against the cleric's back. It leaves Kinjou more than a little winded, but he manages a smile, rummaging through his bag and pulling out a few trinkets he crafted over the weeks.

The first was an expertly woven (though still a little soggy) pair of kelp slippers, which he presents to Makishima. At first, the wizard seemed a tad... hesitant. But after trying them on and seeing how they actually looked and felt, he was absolutely smitten. They matched his hair perfectly, and were actually pretty comfortable, despite the sogginess. And hey, he could use them as water shoes when he's out surfing. Practicality and fashion, rolled into one kelpy package.

The second was an intricately carved piece of driftwood made to look like a bear, with an attachment on the back that could allow someone to wear it on their arm if they so desired. Like a wood tattoo or something, y'know? A tribal tattoo without all the regret.
Tadokoro however, can barely stifle a snort at the stupid idea of a wooden tattoo. Wouldn't he just get a regular temporary tattoo instead? But that aside, the bear was fucking rad. He puts that shit on his arm ASAP, flexing and showing it off to his pals.

The third was kind of... gross, though Kinjou presents it with pride. It was a gift for Ren; a shower cap made from the remains of a Portugese Man-Of-War jellyfish. Though Kinjou himself had stung himself more than a few times trying to neutralize the stupid thing's tentacles, it was totally safe, and the remaining tentacles hung down to look like pink highlights.
“..That's a dead fish, I don't want that.” Ren says simply, lowering his sunglasses.

That doesn't deter Kinjou in the slightest however, insisting he try it on.

“I thought you'd really like it, seeing as you're all about fashion and pink and all that, and-”

“Kinjou, you do understand how much I don't want that, right? It's gross, that's literally a dead fish.” To prove his point, he drops the jellyfish to the ground, where it flops with a gross splattering sound. “Oh no, what a shame. How terrible. What will I do.”

Appalled, Makishima scoops up the droopy shower cap, holding it close.

“Ren, that's so rude? If you don't want it, I'll use it, god! It'll help whenever I'm trying to touch up my roots. And it looks stylish as all hell!!”

Ren sits up then, almost offended by this nonsense. He knows Makishima has some questionable fashion taste, but this was a dead fish.

“Yuu, you can't be serious. It's gross, look at it jiggle!! Put it back in the water or something, give it a viking funeral.”

“Hell no! You better believe I'm keeping this, bubula. I'm using it as soon as we get back to the ship!”

Clearly displeased by his brother's horrible life decisions, Ren continues to argue and try to convince Makishima to Not Put A Dead Fish On His Head. It's useless of course, but it gets another laugh out of Tadokoro, joining in on Makishima's side of the argument and vouching for the poor jellyfish.

Off to the side, Kinjou feels himself laugh a little too, hugging his satchel with the remaining gift inside. Guess he'll leave them be for now, he's got one last delivery to make.

you said TAZ AU and not D&D AU, so...I hope this translates over okay

***

“Um, sir? I have a favor to ask.”

It’s a little past three in the afternoon; the Bureau cafeteria is absent of the lunch crowd that was milling about earlier, aside from the staff that have started to come in for the dinner service. Makishima has been on base long enough that he’s had indulged a thought or two about trying to switch his position around--missions can be trying, especially this last one--enough so that he’s tried to buddy up with the executive chef. (Her cooking is fine, but her personality is a little lacking.)

But staying on base permanently would also mean he’d be within eyesight of a certain leech possibly three times a day, nevermind encounters outside of that. Onoda has a tendency to seek him out like some kind of magic missile already; no matter where he goes, there’s at least a 75-percent chance that Onoda will find him. Novel in the first few days when he returns, but eventually, the kid’s fidgeting, wide-eyed enthusiasm starts to wear off again.

Makishima tries not to grimace too hard, but takes a second longer than usual to have his lazy grin appear.

“What’s happenin’, Sakameech?”

“You can call me Onoda, sir,” Onoda suggests with a small smile, fidgeting with the wand at the end of the lanyard around his neck. “I wanted to see if you’d like to go to the Fantasy Costco together.”

“Eh, I went with the boys when we came back from our last mission,” Makishima inspects his nails. “Shoulda jumped in when you had the chance, kiddo.”

“I’m usually, um, occupied when you first return the relics to the Director,” Onoda glances around, adjusting his glasses. “You remember the bicycle I had with me on the train when we first met, right? The one I inherited from my grandfather?”

Makishima bores holes into his own cuticles, smiling innocently. “Can’t say I do!”

“Oh...well, I thought it was gone for good. But then I saw something that looked just like it in the Fantasy Costco the other day!”

Makishima raises an eyebrow, his smile shifting into a wider smirk. “Is that so?”

“Yes!” Onoda brightens with a smile. “It might not be the real deal, but, well, it’d be nice to have the memories even if they’re just that. Warlock Midosuji gave it a pretty hefty price, though, and well...maybe you could help me haggle?”

“Sure thing, pal,” Makishima returns the smile. “Just give me a sec, okay?”

Onoda nods enthusiastically. Makishima steps away, taking his Stone of Far-Speech out of his pocket.

“Holy shit. You guys need to see this.”

***

“Makishima...are you sure you want to do this?”

“Who are you to talk, Tadokoro?” Makishima eyes the dwarf. “Like you think the brat is any saint.”

“I know, I know, Pan can judge me all He wants when the time comes,” Tadokoro shrugs. “He’s still a kid, though. Right, Kinjou?”

Kinjou is quiet, wiping his sunglasses with his bandana. He puts them back on, and ties the bandana back around his neck, a smile twitching at his lips.

“It could be fun.”

Onoda is practically skipping inside the store; Makishima keeps his hands shoved inside the pockets of his romper, fearing Onoda might grab one if given the opportunity.

“BE CAREFUL OF THE MERCHANDISE!” A voice echoes, shrill, making Onoda yelp as a black cloud materializes in front of him, forming the shape of, and eventually, the proprietor himself. Midosuji leans in, making Onoda shrink further close to the ground, the tips of their noses separated by just a centimeter.

“The deals never last long, but there is no need to rush,” Midosuji clicks his teeth, plucking at the fabric of Onoda’s shirt with long fingers, elegant verging on eerie. “Why so much fuss, my boy?”

“Well, sir, you see that bike over there?”

Midosuji’s head twists at an unnatural angle, eyes going to where Onoda is pointing.

“Ah! An aged vehicle, but not without its worth.” He twists back to Onoda. “Are you sure you can pay the price?”

“Well…” Onoda looks back to Makishima, who makes the smallest amount of eye contact, offering a wave of his fingers. Midosuji sighs, his body shaking with delight as he cups his own cheeks in his hands.

“My dearest customer! What would you like to offer up this time? Perhaps--” Midosuji steeples his fingers, optimistic. “The sword?”

“You’re all about equivalency, right?” Makishima grins back, a little lopsided. “I’m not sure if that’s a fair trade.”

“Oh. Of course.” Midosuji sets his jaw, sneering. “Because you are the expert on fair trades around here, aren’t you.”

Makishima looks to Kinjou and Tadokoro. Tadokoro is distracted by a table laden with axes; Kinjou shields the goldfish swimming in a bubble at his hip when Makishima’s eyes drop over him.

“Listen, I know I’m fresh out of gold, and we have a bit of a past, but--”

“If you give nothing, you get nothing!” Midosuji sing-songs, his robes sweeping along the floor as he spies another customer entering. Onoda looks at Makishima, then looks at the floor, wallet in hand. Kinjou whistles, pausing at every other table until he’s made his way over to Onoda, dropping into a squat.

“Try this when Midosuji’s distracted,” He presses the pocket workshop into Onoda’s hand and a finger to his lips, the boy’s eyebrows wrinkling in confusion.

“Sir--”

“I may not be a big spender,” Makishima pipes up, a glimmer in his eye, umbra staff in hand. “But you’re worth the spell slot.”
