Bonus Round 1.5: AUs

AUs

This round is CLOSED as of 7PM EDT on 10 June. Late comments are screened and will not receive points.



Second verse, same as the first! This is an overflow post for br1, meant to hold new prompts and their fills (so that we don't hit comment cap on the first br post).


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.

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!

They watched as the world ended. As endings went, it was fast, unfolding over the span of less than a decade, but to them, it passed in the blink of an eye, and when the ending had ceased and they were the only two remaining, they took out their inks.

It was Kuroo's turn first, and he waited patiently as Kenma covered his skin with stories. The wars that had been fought began at his foot and marched up his leg. The ending had been violent, and its memory bloomed all the way up over his hip, stretching to brush the bottom of his ribs. On his other leg, Kenma recorded disasters—memories of times the earth had shaken and split and swallowed cities and the oceans had risen with great fury and wiped whole regions from the map. Memories of progress and of change began on one wrist and continued all the way to his opposite hand. His back held a menagerie of all the creatures who had ever lived in the world, his neck the record of the alliances they had made. And his chest, centered over the heart, recorded the memory of the competitive spirit of the world that had pushed it to greater and greater heights.

Then it was Kenma's turn, and Kuroo recorded the memories that had not fit onto his own skin. One of Kenma's legs held the record of discovery, the other, the natural wonders the world had created, and the history of inquiry and invention marched across his arms. His back was the companion to Kuroo's, holding the full garden of plants that had ever grown in the world, and his neck held the record of languages. His chest, also centered over the heart, captured the spirit of knowledge that had pushed the world to seek answers to even the deepest mysteries of the universe.

At last, Kuroo finished, and he and Kenma set their hands side by side and finished the story together. They set into their skin the story of themselves, the two gods who had created the world, and who had watched it through to its end. And when that was done, and the memories were shared evenly between them, they too reached their end.

And when the cycle of the universe turned again and they were reborn, they found each other by the two halves of the story recorded on their hands, and together they read the memories inked into their skin and used them to shape a new world.

Then, they set their creation free and settled back to watch it unfold over the millennia. As the centuries passed, the ink on their skin faded as the world took its own course, branching out from the seed they had planted, until, when the cycle completed and the end of the world came again, their skin was unmarked, ready to record the memories of another world before the cycle began anew.
