Bonus Round 2: Tic-Tac-Toe


SASO 2017 is over, but this round is perpetually open to new fills (no new prompts).

Get three in a row! That's the goal of this bonus round. Inspired by a fanwork event type called kink bingo, this round encourages you to create and fill out themed prompt cards.

Please read this whole post before commenting to ensure that your team gets the most points possible. There's a lot of text here, but if you read carefully and follow the instructions step by step, you will be okay.

Please refer to the first comment thread of this post for an example of how this round works.


  1. Select a ship to create your prompt card about. Platonic relationships are indicated by an "&" between the names (e.g., Haruki & Kazuma). Non-platonic relationships use "/" (e.g., Haruki/Kazuma). Please don't say "Any pairing," either!

  2. Visit this card generator.
    • Here is a visual guide to using it.
    • The large text box is where you can list prompts if you have your own ideas. Please list at least 9 prompts; you can list more if you want. (The generator says you need at least 24, but it's lying.) Single words or short phrases are better than sentences.
    • Otherwise, you can use the dropdown menu found right below it. Note: some of these prompts lists are NSFW. (NSFW prompts are a-ok as long as you tag for it.) If you don't like some of the options that appear in a prompt list, you can delete them.
    • Text prompts only, please. Also, each card square must be unique—don't list the same prompt 9 times.
    • In "Configuration Options," make sure you select 3x3 and (Normal prompt). This is the most important step!
    • Leave the tic-tac-toe card with its default colors, so everyone can read it clearly.
    • Click the "Create a bingo card" button.
    • Scroll down to see the card that was created for you. If you don't like the prompts it picked, you can reroll by clicking "Create a bingo card" again.
    • When you're satisfied, scroll further down the page until you see a textarea box full of HTML.
  3. Copy and paste the HTML from the box and into the body of your prompt comment, then post!


Fill prompts by selecting an individual square to create fanwork for, then leaving a responding comment to the prompt with your newly-created work. (Optional:) If you can fill three squares from a prompt in a horizontal, vertical, or diagonal line, you get a tic-tac-toe (and an additional point bonus)! You can also just fill prompts as you please and get standard points.
  • Prompt squares are labeled as follows:
    A1 B1 C1
    A2 B2 C2
    A3 B3 C3
  • If you're trying for tic-tac-toe, you cannot combine squares into one fill. If your fill can satisfy multiple squares, pick the most relevant square: e.g., one square is sailing and another is pirates and you make a fill about pirates sailing, it's mostly pirates so put down the pirates square.
  • Each fill must stand alone as an individual piece, but all your fills can slot into a larger universe if you'd like.
  • You cannot fill a prompt square more than once, but you can fill every square on a tic tac toe card if you want to.
  • You cannot work with your teammates to get a tic-tac-toe. Only individually achieved tic-tac-toes get the bonus.
  • Multiple people can fill the same prompt square. You cannot "block" others from getting tic-tac-toe.
  • Remember to also follow the general bonus round rules, outlined here.
  • Here is a prompt/fill index for your convenience.

Bonus round shenanigans all happen in the comments below. Brand-new works only, please.

Required Work Minimums:
  • 400 words (prose)
  • 400px by 400px (art/images)

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.

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 for each tic-tac-toe card (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
Tic-tac-toe Bonus: 2 points each for the first 12 achieved by your team

All scored content must be created new for this round.

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 is a Puella Magi Madoka Magica AU so Oikawa here is some sort of cross between Madoka and Kyouko. Er, leaving Tobio in Homura's place. Hope you like this!!


The Grief seed flickers, mirroring the bitterness welling up, bubling over, like a water spring within her heart.

Try again. The fates laugh at Tobio, mocking each repetition she's put herself through.

Try again.  Walpurgis floats above, endless in her cackling.

Try again. Tobio jams her hand against her shield, twists its centre, and tries again.


Oikawa wasn't at all kind when she'd first met her.

Oikawa had her scythe trained upon Tobio, barely an exhale away from the jugular, when Tobio began her initial foray into Miyagi's witch hunts, and in that moment, crystal clear, Tobio realised how obviously unwelcome her presence was here.

"I'm sorry," she'd whispered then, but her eyes didn't say it was sincere.

And, perhaps, it was that subtle display of rebellion that had Oikawa swinging her weapon away, back to her side. The way she grinned after burnt something in the eaves of Tobio's heart; Oikawa's lips promised destruction, if that was what Tobio dared to seek. "Cheeky, aren't you? Newbie."

The "not really" had slipped out before she could rein it in but, fortunately, it only made Oikawa laugh harder.

(To this wretched day, Tobio will never understand what made Oikawa take her under her wing then, since it only made things harder for them-- in their many futures.)


Undoubtedly, after that, being like Oikawa -- being better than, even -- became the goal.

Tobio wanted her hair to shine the way Oikawa's did under the light seeping through the stained glass windows of the church she sometimes took to visit.

Tobio wanted be just as deft, to be able to have the bite and charisma the older girl showed when they met and rallied with other magical girls.

Tobio wanted to intimidate, look just as good in splashes of blood and questionable matter, wearing intensity as one would with a heart on their sleeves.

Most of all, Tobio wanted to kiss her and wipe the patronising smirks Oikawa always reserved for her, off, with her own lips.

But, as luck would have it, it wasn't a romance to be.

(The end came for all of them so fast; the warning day, the storms and hurricanes, the last of the magical girls, and, finally, Oikawa's hand, slipping through Tobio's.

Tobio could only watch as Oikawa saved the world.

However, the world couldn't quite in turn save Oikawa.

So Tobio watched again, as Oikawa rose and grew into a force so fearsome, she became an irony: both the strongest magical girl and witch of all time.)

It was a tragedy.


Why not try again? Kyuubey had jumped down then, an albatross in disguise, and offered what could be a solution.

And, because she was desperate, because she was a fool, Tobio drank it up for all the tears she'd cried had made her thirsty for a chance to see Oikawa alive again.

"I'll try again," she promised and sealed the deal.

(Oh, silly, silly her.)


Now, she sits at the crossroads, an eternity of failed attempts sitting pretty behind her guns and her explosives and her shield and all the blood she's shed.

This time she says damn everything and feels inky feathers sprout along the column of her spine.

When she descends, Tobio smiles, heartbeat erratic, and hopes Oikawa will be proud of what she's going to do and of what she'll become, in her beloved senpai's name.

Tetsurou thinks of himself as a simple guy, really.

At the very least, he makes things simple for himself. There’s no sense in overcomplicating the things that life might throw at you, after all. So he tries to go with the flow, forgoes worrying too much about situations and consequences in favor of living life in the moment.

This is one of the few times he’s felt he might have screwed up, just a little.

Living with Oikawa and Koutarou had made sense at the time. He was going to be visiting their city for an article he was writing, and they were already there for a training camp, so crashing at their place was the logical choice, rather than shelling out money for a hotel.

Tetsurou hadn’t thought his crush would’ve been that big of a deal.

He’d had a crush on Koutarou all throughout high school, which he would’ve realized at the time if he’d been in the habit of actually thinking about his feelings. As it was, he hadn’t realized it until his best friend had excitedly announced that he had a boyfriend.

Oikawa Tooru. Tetsurou was pretty sure that no human could avoid developing some kind of crush on him, no matter how small. He was annoyingly charming, charmingly annoying, and good-looking to boot. Plus, his vast knowledge of the most random trivia could rival Tetsurou’s.

If they weren’t bad enough on their own, together, they’d been a nightmare. Over the past week, Tetsurou had endured horrors ranging from their lack of belief in wearing shirts after they showered, to the unfortunate sounds he’d heard in bed at night, no matter how much the walls muffled them.

Tetsurou sighs, slumping even further into the couch cushions as Oikawa bustles around in the kitchen making tea. He’s beginning to regret the idea of staying here for another couple weeks. As much as he adores Koutarou, and as much as he loves getting to know Oikawa better, he’s not sure if his heart can take much more of this.

“I’m home, babe!” Koutarou announces loudly as he slams through the door, bags of groceries slung over his arms and a bright smile on his face.

“Welcome back,” Tetsurou says with a grin, at the exact time that Oikawa pops his head out of the kitchen and says the same thing.

There’s a moment of silence, an awkward beat when Koutarou looks between the two of them and Tetsurou can feel his neck and ears heating up, turning an alarming shade of red.

It wouldn’t have been awkward, if it was just Koutarou and him. It hadn’t been awkward for all of high school and college. But now, Kuroo’s pretty sure he wants the earth to swallow him whole, because babe isn’t solely his word anymore, and that hurts so much more than he would’ve ever expected.

Somehow, Oikawa saves them all, flitting over to wrap his arms around Koutarou’s neck and press a kiss to his lips. Tetsurou looks away.

“You’re just in time, Kou-kun. Wanna help me with the tea?” And just like that, the tension simmers low again as Oikawa pulls Koutarou into the kitchen behind him. In a minute or so, the kettle will go off and they’ll pour tea and bring it out, and Tetsurou will grin at them and they’ll watch shitty TV, or play a board game, or plan an outing for the night.

And until that moment when he has to pack all his emotions neatly away, Tetsurou lets himself pine.

(You could read Miyacest into this if you so wished)


Atsumu knows he’s asking for it when he throws himself down on the bar stool, props his chin up on one hand and reaches to knock back a sip of Osamu’s highball. He does it anyway. For Osamu, he even finds a smile more brilliant than all the pulsing strobe lights on the floor, and the smoke that swirls around them cannot hide Osamu’s face from him.

“Aren’t you having fun, Samu?”

“Oh, I’m having so much fun,” says Osamu, prying his drink out of Atsumu’s hand. “Watching my brother pick up guys—”

“And girls—”

“Please. The girls are trying to pick you up.”

Atsumu laughs. “You were watching.”

The look Osamu gives him doesn’t need words. Atsumu spins his seat round in a slow circle, leans back on his elbows and taps his foot to the music, restless.

What Osamu doesn’t know (or maybe he does) is that Atsumu, too, has been watching; that he has been chasing shadows all night long. At the back of his throat, the whiskey burns like sandpaper. He’s never been as good as Osamu, when it comes to holding his liquor. He’s never been as good as Osamu, when it comes to keeping things in, and so his arm shoots out and he grabs hold of Osamu, leaps off the stool and starts moving before his brother can object.

“Come on. Let’s dance.”

Tsumu, I don’t—”

“Not with strangers, okay? With me. Hey, it’s our song!”

“We don’t have a song,” Osamu points out, flatly.

Atsumu grins. “Then this one’s ours.”

And as Atsumu says this, here in the centre of the dancefloor where their secrets are safe, his hand slides down Osamu’s wrist and he laces their fingers together, surely, surely, just like Osamu used to clasp his hand when Atsumu woke in a cold sweat from a nightmare.

Osamu’s sigh is like breathing. So is the rhythm that they lose themselves in.

Once, Atsumu would have hated all these eyes on them. He would have hated it, not because he disdains the attention but because he knows, in his heart of hearts, that Osamu is the better dancer, and when people see them like this, his hands on Osamu’s hips and the way they fall into step with each other, they can never quite hide their surprise that it is Osamu who leads.

Now—and Osamu would call him childish for it, he knows, but he doesn’t care—

He has learned to love surprises. To revel in their differences, every last beautiful, dangerous one.

The music slows, settles into a lush beat that leaves whispers lingering in the air. Osamu’s arm winds its way round Atsumu’s shoulders. He presses his cheek to his, rests there for a moment that melts like honey in the heat of the club, like ice exhaling.

Atsumu can’t help the little smirk that finds its way onto his face, and the rush of blood to his head is more intoxicating than any drink he’s had tonight.

Kise has always been beautiful, and everyone knows it. That's what all the magazines clamoring to take his pictures have decided, and that's what all the girls at school fawning over him have taken as fact. And yeah, Aomine sees it—in Kise's fine blond hair, his smooth skin, his soft-sweet features, his build that's neither too lean nor too much, his fierce eyes that betray something more than an airhead underneath. He sees it in the photo books Kise insists on thrusting into everyone's faces at every chance he gets, sees it in the billboard ads displaying Kise's face across the city, sees it when Kise comes into practice all dolled-up from a shoot. He sees it even better when they're playing basketball, in Kise's fierce eyes, seemingly devouring every move they see and committing them to memory; in Kise's smooth moves, instinctive rather than practiced, flawlessly imitating everyone at their very best, including Aomine himself.

Kise had told him, once, facing off against each for the first time wearing jerseys in different colors, that as much as he wanted to Aomine, he never really wanted to surpass him, never wanted to see him fall from grace. Aomine had wanted to laugh (hasn't he already fallen so far beyond saving?), had wanted to punch him right in his pretty face, but he'd always been better with actions rather than words so he'd shown Kise then just how inadequate he still was, walking right past Kise when he needed to stand.

Do better had been written in every line of his body, in every dunk and shot he'd made that went right through Kise's hands, and Kise seems to have taken up the challenge.

Because as beautiful as he is on and off the court, Aomine likes him best here, in someone's dark basement or in some empty lot, the cheers from the sides not coming from an audience who showered up to be entertained but from guys as bloodied up as they are, waiting for their own turns. Kise looks like himself, but different, like someone had erased every part of him that still curved and had drawn in sharper edges. He looks like Aomine could cut himself on him just by grazing his skin, and Aomine's delighted that it's almost exactly the case.

"Come on, pretty boy," he says, a taunt as good as any. "Is that all you've got?"

He'll come to regret it, because it ends with Kise on top of him, eyes shut but his aim true as he delivers blow after blow on Aomine's face, until one of Aomine's eyes have swollen shut, until his nose had cracked in the middle, until one of his teeth seemed to have come loose.

(But there's a part of him that always wanted this—his ass handed to him, in any way possible—so it's almost like he's the one who's won.)

When they pull Kise off him, Kise's knuckles are torn open and flayed, and he's asking, "you okay, Aominecchi?" with equal parts innocence and deviousness, and while every part of Aomine's hurting like a bitch he wants to laugh when Kise offers him his hand.

He takes it, feeling the world spin around him as he gets on his feet. "Yeah," he grins, spitting out the blood that had pooled in his mouth. "Yeah, I'm good."

This was fun and also kinda sad to write!! More to come soon :D


High school passed slowly and yet all at once for Yaku Morisuke. As a small, inexperienced first year, three years seemed like such a long time; at that point, only barely 15 years old, three years could practically be an eternity.

The time passed slowly until that day he joined the volleyball club. Meeting Kuroo, while vexing at first, brought some comfort to life at a new school, and the rest of the team helped make time pass that much easier. Before he knew it, Yaku was watching their senpai graduate alongside Kuroo, bitterly regretting the failures of the past and yet still looking forward, ever forward to the next practice, the next match, their next win.

(And if he shed some tears for his seniors amongst the falling petals of the sakura trees, then that was his business, and his alone.)

Second year had arrived in the blink of a moment, and Yaku soon found himself in the midst of yet another year doing their best to climb the heights of the Interhigh. He endured his senpai’s insistence on hierarchy as best he could, deflecting their pedantic notions from his kouhai as much as possible. He watched as Kenma struggled and bloomed as a setter and strategist, and thought maybe this is it.

They clawed and fought their way through the preliminaries, only to fall short of the pinnacle, falling to their opponents in the quarterfinals.

The tears that fell that evening were bitter, but lighter for the knowledge that next year would be their best chance yet; with Kuroo as captain and Kenma as strategist and setter, and Yaku protecting them as libero, they were sure to reach that powerful apex, the peak of their strength. Without the dead weight of their senpai to drag them down, Yaku finally had hope for his third year.

Yaku’s third year arrived in a whirlwind of new faces and new skills in the volleyball club; Inuoka’s energy and Shibayama’s enthusiasm brought the fire burning in his chest to a steadily hotter temperature.

The first practice match against Karasuno lit a fire in Yaku’s eyes that hadn’t been there before; the presence of a libero as skilled as Nishinoya brought out the competitive side in him.

The practice matches passed in a blur, only allowing for impressions and movement to stick in Yaku’s brain. By the end of the evening, his muscles were wrung out from practice, and Nishinoya’s approach startled him.

Yaku left the practice match feeling much more confident in their fighting chances; with a rival like Karasuno, and especially with a rival like Nishinoya, a libero who always sought to keep moving forward, Nekoma couldn’t possibly lose until they finally faced off across an official court.

Time flew by, broken notably only by the arrival of and subsequent attempts at training one Haiba Lev. Still time passed in a haze of anticipation.

Finally, the moment came, and Yaku stepped foot onto the first court of his last Spring High in high school. That ephemeral moment just before the whistle blew stretched and shone, and Yaku took a breath.

Whatever happened in the next few months, whatever wins and losses Nekoma weathered, he was sure he wouldn’t regret any of the too-short time spent at Nekoma, or with the volleyball club.

He definitely wouldn’t regret getting to know one Nishinoya Yuu, either; hopefully their friendship would be stronger than their short acquaintance suggested.

Yaku couldn’t wait to find out what his future held after these scant three years.

Square: first hangover
Word Count: 485


Alex groans. The sound is grating against her ears, disgusting; she feels thirsty and hungry and nauseous all at once, and when she tries to prop herself up her body’s moving sluggishly. Her stomach turns, dangerously; she lies back down and focuses on her breath. In, out, one-two-three-four, one-two-three-four. Something shifts on the mattress beside her, and Alex cracks an eye open, squinting to try and get her vision clear. Right. She’d taken that gorgeous woman home, Masako, after having six or seven drinks and way too much to eat and they hadn’t even done anything because as soon as they’d gotten back she’d collapsed on the bed, slurring an apology. She remembers MAsako smoothing back her hair, and that’s it, until now.

Masako doesn’t look awake; Alex props herself up again, holding her breath. It’s a little better. God, she has a headache; it’s pounding the inside of her skull, announcing its arrival with all the worst kind of fanfare. Maybe she’d fallen asleep entertaining fantasies of sleepy morning sex with Masako, but that seems pretty unlikely right now. She has to pee, too; it’s like every part of her body has woken up and started protesting on its own. Alex lurches to her feet.

Her stomach is twisting and screaming; she tries to swallow everything back down; she makes it to the bathroom and barely has time to open the toilet before she pukes inside of it. Her hair’s still in an approximation of its updo from last night; she holds it back anyway, trying to think of anything other than how fucking gross this is. She feels like she’s going to gag again but nothing happens and she waits, stretched over the toilet. There are footsteps behind her; of course this would wake up Masako.

“Hangover?” she says.

“I don’t get them,” says Alex.

“You do now,” says Masako, grim amusement coloring her voice.

Alex slumps over the toilet; there’s nothing left to puke up but she still feels fucking awful. “I’m sorry. I’m a shit date.”

“I’m just glad you’re okay,” says Masako, and Alex doesn’t feel okay even though she knows what Masako means.

A cool glass of water is pressed into her hands, a washcloth to her face. Alex leans back against the wall; Masako flushes the toilet and sits down next to her. She doesn’t look too great, either; in the weak light through the windowblinds Alex can see the mascara stained on her face, the way last night’s clothes stick to her. She smells pretty awful, too, though maybe that’s just from being around Alex. Alex leans her head against Masako’s shoulder.

“You can make it up to me,” says Masako. “If you want to go out next week. No drinking.”

“I’m not this much of a lush, usually,” says Alex, closing her eyes. “But that’s probably not a bad idea.”

i want / to do to you what spring does with the cherry trees. my noon, my midnight, my talk, my song / i thought that love would last for ever. i was wrong. i am yours. don't give myself back to me.
as if you were on fire from within / the moon lives in the lining of your skin. happiness. it comes on / unexpectedly. and goes beyond. lovers don't finally meet somewhere. they're in each other all along.

Thank you very much for these. No, really, can not thank you enough.


Just when have they started looking at each other differently?

Wakana knows the changes are subtle; Hiyama gazes at him a moment too long, Wakana stares at Hiyama when he spaces out during Maths. They look at each other without thinking, without any reason to. He feels something, but he isn't sure what it is.

They don't talk about this. They aren't, have never been like that. Instead, they find each other in some corner of the school grounds that's out of everyone's view. Hiyama leans against the fence, looks at the sky. Wakana crouches down next to him, listens on the noise, the voices around school. They don't do anything, but they do it together.

Together. Wakana, lately, has been spending a lot more time with Hiyama. More than he ever has. More than with anyone else. Before school, after school, on their way home; in the arcades, or for a short visit to the super mart close to his home. Hiyama doesn't complain, he waits for Wakana, as if he doesn't wanna do nothing without him.

"I wanna show you something, dude.", Hiyama says in April. It's still chilly, but kind of warm as long as one stays out of the shade. Wakana nods, follows Hiyama, like he often does. They walk in silence, next to each other.

Their hands brush; it's on purpose, or is it? It has happened a lot, recently.

They come to a stop underneath a cherry tree, in full bloom. It's huge, probably older than even school itself.

Hiyama takes a moment to appreciate it, but his eyes are on Wakana again before long. His gaze is different today, his expression more serious than ever. Wakana blinks, but doesn't question it.

They lean against the cherry tree, next to each other, looking up at it's blossoms, the petals gently falling down.

"You know...", Hiyama says after a while, bites his lip and takes a break. "Lately, I..."

"Me too, I guess.", Wakana agrees.

Their hands find each other. They still look up at the cherry blossoms.

"I kind of want to, you know, that."

"Do it, just do it already."

Hiyama pushes himself off the trunk, places himself in front of Wakana and takes a moment to collect himself. Wakana waits, albeit impatiently. Just when he opens his mouth to say something, Hiyama kisses him. They break apart, quickly.

"What the fuck, I ain't frenching you right away!", Hiyama complains.

"You fuckin' take too long.", Wakana replies in fashion.

They look at each other, for a moment. Wakana takes a deep breath, exhales in kind and grabs Hiyama's elbow.

"Kiss me properly, you tool.", he says. And Hiyama kisses him, finally kisses him properly. Wakana closes his eyes, moves his arms around Hiyama and listens to the rustling of the leaves above him. Yeah, that's more like it.

"Gay.", he mutters when they break apart.

Hiyama stays close to Wakana's face, the tips of their noses almost touching.

"Yeah, no shit."

"Kiss me again already."
