Bonus Round 2: Tic-Tac-Toe



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.


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

PROMPTING

  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!

FILLING

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)

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 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.


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!

***

Kentarou wakes up to two puppies curled up in the space between his and Shigeru's bodies. Shigeru sleeps curled up on his side, his head just touching Kentarou's shoulder, knees coming up to rest against the side of his leg. The puppies have found enough space in between to nestle comfortably and Kentarou lies there, listening to their sleepy snuffling, along with Shigeru's deep, even breaths, and huffs quietly to himself, a grin spreading across his lips before he fully realises it's there.

He's never thought of himself as a morning person, but living with Shigeru means that he is, just by comparison. He's the one who always wakes first, and he usually gets out of bed to at least get their coffee machine going by the time that Shigeru wakes up, but he's content to just lie there for now, too happy with where he is to want to leave the bed just yet.

Shigeru is getting used to waking up not long after Kentarou anyway; he shifts in his sleep, humming softly and pulling the covers down just enough that he can reach over to where Kentarou is lying, making a pleased noise to find him still there.

"Morning," Shigeru murmurs, finally blinking his eyes open.

"Hey," Kentarou replies, tangling their fingers together. He rubs his thumb back and forth over Shigeru's knuckle. "The kids found their way into our bed."

Propping himself up a little, Shigeru looks down at their sleeping puppies and makes a soft, fond noise. "God, they're cute."

The puppies in question are a few months old, newly adopted from the local shelter as of last week. They've finally warmed up to their new house and their new parents, and Kentarou is secretly thrilled by the fact that they've already started learning how to climb the furniture.

"I don't wanna move, just in case I end up disturbing them," Kentarou murmurs, squeezing Shigeru's hand in his.

"Sounds good to me," Shigeru hums, making himself more comfortable against Kentarou's side while making sure not to disturb the puppies as they sleep. "I don't mind staying right here in bed with you for a bit longer. We definitely shouldn't wake them before they're ready."

Kentarou snorts quietly. "Any excuse will do, huh?"

"You're the one who first suggested it," Shigeru replies, headbutting Kentarou's shoulder gently. "Don't put this on me. This is nice, though."

"Yeah," Kentarou replies, smiling at Shigeru as they both relax into their bed and against each other. "It really is."

ahhh (there are last game spoilers in here, just a heads-up!)

***

In the distance the birds are already calling, their cries elevated by the first rays of morning filtering in through your window. You open your eyes gradually, feeling the sun’s caress, the light drawing you out from beneath the covers.

He’s next to you, breathing slow and even, yet to awaken. You brush his hair out of his face, or try to—he’s got a good grip on you, an arm wound around your middle, a leg over yours. It would be suffocating if you hadn’t wanted this so much. Both of you had wanted this so much.

(I don’t know how to tell you this you said last night, holding him with your fingers digging into his skin. How do I make you know?

You don’t have to tell me anything he said, and you knew in that moment it was true.)

Consider: sitting inside Maji Burger, watching him consume an amount equivalent to a nuclear family’s weekly calorie intake. You sip on your milkshake, content. He stuffs burger after burger into his mouth, but it looks less obscene as one might take it to be (perhaps after witnessing the eating habits of your former partner, nothing is obscene anymore.) Sometimes you listen to him talk about the past, of Los Angeles and the sparkling lights and the late nights out at In-n-Out. Sometimes you talk about the present, coach yelling at you for running too slow or at him for getting chased off-track by something or another (Nigou, usually).

Sometimes you talk about the future, and these are the times you watch his eyes grow distant, longing.

It’s not something you can give him, not even basketball, which he loves perhaps more than life itself. You wouldn’t know—he does not say this, not even when both of you are on the couch watching some cheesy film and you’re falling asleep and he’s leaning into you, mouthing along to the lyrics of a bygone era.

You wouldn’t know the wide streets and expanse of desert stretching into the sky, the downtown noises and lights permeating the air, the salty air of the beach tasting ever so slightly different from the wind over Tokyo Bay. He may not need the ring around his neck as a constant reminder of something from home anymore, but now it is a reminder of a different kind when you hear him laugh in English over the phone in the kitchen, when he points out all the places in the city he’s been to in a show and grumbles at the inaccurate portrayals.

You watch him take the phone call and then the next, the call to his father the last in the chain of events that will be etched into your memory of a sunny blue day, not overwriting what last was there but close enough.

When he finally looks at you eye-to-eye the night before the match you know what he knows, and it is then the finality of it strikes at your heart, lighting a match to something greater than before.

I’m sorry.

You place a hand to his chest.

Why would you be? You gave me so much…

And when the deed is done and the overflowing drink and food has calmed enough the raucousness left in your friends’ eyes, you take his hand and tell him, it’s time to let go.

You can already see the light in his eyes as he begins to talk, and you see the future spread before him, in a thousand miles in a thousand directions, across the sea and home. There is no permanence in such a world, but maybe there is something else in that smile you would be willing to give away so it could become brighter.

In time, you will set ablaze the world.

It’s not something you can give him, but you can be by his side when he decides to take flight.

chihaya runs like the wind is chasing
her feet have been blessed by some distant star
kanade watches from windows afar
marvels at how fast her heart is racing
on the tatami she'll perch like a crane
attentive and fierce as she waits to strike
and even here, watching, she'll feel the spike
the speed of her pulse creating a strain
from the beginning chihaya is pushing
coaxing her senses to further alarm
she never is restful, losing her footing
as, swiftly, she's taken in by this girl's charm
it thrums deep within her, as long as she's looking
moves body and spirit, and keeps them both warm

Square: chain-link fences
Word Count: 436

***

Like a backdrop in a play, it is a constant in their lives, unnoticed but all-encompassing, like mountains in the horizon or the sky on a hot day. On the day before Rin left for the first time, Haru stood before the naked cherry blossom tree, willing it to bloom if only for Rin's sake. Behind the tree was the chain-link fence, and beside him was Rin, grinning and talking about dreams and pointing at the phrase he wrote on the bricks as if it meant anything. As if it meant he would stay.

Haru forgave him for leaving, though, just as he forgives him now for coming back.

-

Rin can be cruel when he wants to be, and so can Haru. When Rin corners him and tells him all sorts of things he doesn't want to hear, when he lights fires under Haru against Haru's will as if he still had the right, something in Haru snaps. He never wanted to carry this blame, he never wanted to fight, but it's all Rin seems intent to do.

He's backed into the chain-link fence and as images from that fateful day flicker in his mind, the words come out on their own, salt in a wound.

"Don't say you're going to quit. Don't embarrass yourself." And, worst of all, "don't cry if you lose."

Haru will remember the betrayal on Rin's face for years to come.

-

Later on, quietly as they're falling asleep, Rin will tell him about how Haru had never left his mind — not when he was in Australia, not when they were fighting — and how he'd been especially prominent one festival night when Rin saw a couple of kids together, friends just like they'd been when they were younger. How he'd ran as far away from the scene as he can and ended up in front of a pool, the water always a taunting presence, and how his fingers had curled into a chain-link fence as his heart seemed to give out.

And Haru will whisper, into the red waves of Rin's hair, that even when he was Australia, and even when they were fighting, Rin had always been his friend, didn't he already know that?

-

But for now, with the sunset above them and the summer on their skin, they put every other memory of the chain-link fence behind them as Haru presses Rin against it, this time, his hands gentle on Rin's jaw, his eyes earnest and closed. Their mouths meet under a cherry blossom tree in full bloom and Haru decides this is the only one he wants to keep.
