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!

The first time Heath and Tomoe noticed the wind was after a training camp up in the mountains. The wind had whipped through the trees all weekend, adding to the exhaustion everyone had felt from running over steep hills and rough trails for several days. They had finished the training camp with a photo shoot, and Diane was possibly the only person excited about the wind, happy that she didn't have to set up fans on the mountainside to make theirs clothes billow the way she wanted.

The training camp was fun, but everyone was glad to finally leave the mountain and return to their normal training course with more gradual hills and only the gentle breeze blowing off of the river most days. At least, that's how it was supposed to be, and that's how it always had been, but for some reason, the wind seemed to have followed Heath and Tomoe down from the mountains. None of their teammates seemed to be afflicted, but every time they ran, the wind batted at them, messing up their Relations and adding seconds to their time.

They were at a loss until a training session against Saisei. Tomoe stumbled when a sudden gust of wind threw him off balance as he landed from a backflip, and Heath nearly missed a Relation when the wind seemed to snatch his hand away from Kohinata. They were both cursing their bad luck when Shizuma came up beside them.

"It seems like you've caught a wind spirit," he said.

"A what!?"

"A wind spirit. Or have you not noticed the way the wind seems to act up just around you?"

"We've noticed," Tomoe said. "How do we make it go away?"

"The wind's not so easy to control," Shizuma said with a laugh. "You'll probably have better luck trying to get it on your side than make it go away when it seems so attached to you. Where did you pick up a wind spirit anyway? It's rare to see one on the city like this."

Heath and Tomoe looked at one another as they thought. Then the realization dawned. "It must have been at the training camp," Heath said.

The next day, he made Diane drive him and Tomoe back to the mountain where they had trained. The wind whipped around them the entire time they climbed the trail, but it wasn't until they reached the summit that the spirit finally took shape. They could see only the barest hint of form outlined within the wind, but it was enough to see a boy who looked to be about their age, pale and with long hair that streamed out behind him.

The wind around them settled to a steadier gust as he smiled.
