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.

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).

***

Shuuzou cannot carry much with him when he departs to join his family. He takes some clothes, some spellbooks, enough food and money to offset the unpleasantness of the journey, and the magic mirror. It’s not his favorite thing, but he’s heard too much about its dangers to leave it among the other young nobles (Kubota and Akashi had both made valiant cases for keeping it themselves, but Shuuzou doesn’t want to make that kind of mistake). He’s heard of its power going to waste, the vain and the greedy asking it once a minute for their status, doing everything they can to remain the most beautiful, killing and maiming and rending their own lands.

“Mirror, mirror, on the wall, who’s the fairest of them all?”

“I’m in your hand,” says the mirror.

Shuuzou sighs. He could have chosen a better companion, he supposes.

“Mirror, mirror, in my hand, who’s the fairest in the land?”

“Good one,” says the mirror, as the surface with Shuuzou’s face dissolves to reveal, once again, Kise Ryouta.

Shuuzou stuffs the mirror in his pocket of his cloak. Whatever could have, might have (probably wouldn’t have) happened with Kise (probably nothing at this point) it doesn’t matter. He’s leaving all of it behind him.

The mirror’s voice is muffled from his pocket. “You’d better not have taken me just so you can score a hot date.”

Shuuzou snorts. He has no plans of using the mirror for anything other than idle curiosity. Asking a beautiful person to hang around him while he has the mirror is begging for trouble, anyway (they’ll see; they’ll get caught in it; that’s how all of the stories go).

-

Shuuzou crosses the border at noon on the fourth day. He’s almost to the ocean; he can smell the salt and rust and wet wood in the air. He’s already feeling a little bit better about being here, a little bit like it could be home someday. The map his parents had given him is tattered but still legible; he can still make out the way to where they’re staying. It’s a straight shot from here, but Shuuzou wants to see the ocean first. He takes a right turn on the way, past some bushes, and pulls out the mirror just for kicks.

“Mirror, mirror, on the wall, who’s the fairest of them all?”

“Whatever,” says the mirror (and Shuuzou is quite pleased that he’s won this round).

The reflection dissolves; in its place is the back of someone’s head, dark hair and fair skin (odd for a place with weather like this). Shuuzou waits, and then the person turns around and fuck, Shuuzou has never seen anyone quite like this. There’s a sharpness to his gaze, only one eye visible, as if he knows he’s being watched, as if he’s looking straight back at Shuuzou from the back of the mirror. His lips are slightly parted; there’s a hint of danger on his face, and all of Shuuzou’s inner thoughts are screaming that this is a bad fucking idea, put the mirror away NOW Shuuzou.

“Okay,” says Shuuzou, and puts the mirror away.

-

It almost feels as if he’d conjured Tatsuya up from the image in the mirror, because he looks even more perfect in real life. There is something cold about him, something that makes Shuuzou think that behind his face is a locked gate, and behind that another one. There is no magic in that observation, only speculation.

It’s even more ridiculously perfect when they win the fight, Tatsuya’s streamlined water-magic passing through Shuuzou’s bent and focused light, stinging the assailants and making them run for the hills. Shuuzou picks up his satchel, rifling through the pockets; the mirror’s there and he takes it out. And then he looks at Tatsuya.

“Is that one of those beauty mirrors?” says Tatsuya.

“Yeah,” says Shuuzou, exhaling.

“Interesting,” says Tatsuya.

“You want—” Shuuzou offers before he can stop himself (why he should give Tatsuya that choice he doesn’t know; the mirror hisses quietly in his hand).

Tatsuya shakes his head. “I’d rather not know.”

first time writing either of these boys shifty eyes

***

The first time Tendou does it, Wakatoshi doesn’t know how to react.

It’s such a simple thing, in hindsight. An arm slung around his shoulders, sides pressed together, and Tendou doesn’t even stop talking as he does it; doesn’t notice that Wakatoshi’s lungs have contracted into a fist-sized ball inside his chest.

Somehow, he manages to keep walking, because his body is well-trained even if his mind isn’t.

But Tendou isn’t called the Guess Monster for nothing. Wakatoshi must be silent a moment too long- he suddenly can’t remember what it was Tendou was talking about- because Tendou pauses and tilts his head. “Wakatoshi-kun? You okay?”

Wakatoshi draws in a deliberately slow breath. “It’s nothing.”

Tendou fixes him with a narrow stare from much too close, before they’re interrupted by Semi, coming out of his classroom with his gym bag slung over his shoulder.

The arm around his shoulders slips off as Tendou and Semi start up their usual banter, and Wakatoshi pretends a pang of loss doesn’t shoot through his chest.

----

The rest of his teammates all maintain a polite distance. The most Wakatoshi gets from them are claps on the back after a win or a friendly nudge to draw his attention if they’re on the bench.

Tendou, in comparison, is an octopus.

Wakatoshi knows he isn’t special- Tendou is just as physical with everyone else. But it doesn’t change the fact that when Tendou lays a hand on him, Wakatoshi finds it hard to concentrate on anything else.

It irks him, that he cannot even master this, the simplest of reactions. He stays longer and later on days when Tendou’s proximity distracts him, drilling his body with 100 serves, and then 50 more. Wakatoshi is a man who likes control, and he hates that he can feel himself spiralling every time Tendou sits next to him in the cafeteria.

A shameful shiver races across his skin when he imagines Tendou’s hands twined in his, pressed against his cheek. Wakatoshi pushes the thought away and cleans up the gym, before going for a late night run, until the only thing he can focus on is the breath in his lungs and the burning in his thighs.

He passes a couple walking hand-in-hand on his way home from school, and unbidden, his cold, empty hands clench into fists.


----


His father shook his hand when he left for the States. Wakatoshi was twelve and just starting his growth spurt, and his mother had frowned when his father opened his arms for a hug.

So they shook hands, like men.


----

“Wakatoshi-kun,” Tendou says, “You’ve been kind of weird, lately. Weirder than normal, I mean.”

“Is that so.” Wakatoshi replies, putting his gym shoes in his cubby. He nudges them until they’re perfectly squared against the back wall, and places his knee pads in front of them.

Tendou hums thoughtfully, and when Wakatoshi turns around he finds himself faced with Tendou’s narrowed stare. Ordinarily, Wakatoshi has no problem being the object of Tendou’s scrutiny, but after the past week he can feel himself tense instinctively.

Tendou, of course, misses nothing.

Wakatoshi can see the moment Tendou makes up his mind- to do what, though, he doesn’t know.

“... Can I try something?” Wakatoshi considers saying no, but decides it would be petty. He tilts his head instead, knowing Tendou will read it as the permission he needs. “Stay there, okay?”

Tendou rounds the bench, stretching out a hand.

Wakatoshi’s breath stutters.

Tendou hesitates an inch from his skin, something nervous in the set of his mouth, before a warm palm settles against Wakatoshi’s cheek.

He has to squeeze his eyes shut against the barrage of emotion that swells up, overflows, sweeps him away at just that simple gesture.

Wakatoshi can barely remember the last time someone touched him with affection- just for the sake of it, without a purpose or an agenda.

Before he knows it, he’s covered Tendou’s hand with his own, anchoring it to his cheek. Wakatoshi can feel himself shaking, shuddering, and he doesn’t ever want to know what’s showing on his face, because Tendou is staring at him with wide, shocked, eyes and Wakatoshi wants--

And then Tendou is there, wrapping himself around Wakatoshi, all long limbs, red hair and pale skin. He pulls Wakatoshi down against his shoulder, and Wakatoshi goes, powerless to resist. Later, maybe, he will be embarrassed by this. But for now, he presses his face into Tendou’s neck and curls his fingers into Tendou’s jersey and just- breathes.

Somehow, they end up on the locker room floor in a tangled mess limbs. Wakatoshi doesn’t know how much time passes before he comes back to himself enough to realise Tendou is singing, some a nonsense song about aliens and volleyball and hard-boiled eggs. A huff escapes, and Tendou pauses to run a hand through Wakatoshi’s hair.

“How long’s it been, Wakatoshi-kun?”

Wakatoshi opens his eyes from where they’d slipped shut at the gentle press of fingers against his scalp. He meets Tendou’s level stare, and looks away. “... A long time.”

How long?”

He has to think about it. “Six years?”

Tendou swears fiercely. Wakatoshi blinks at him and opens his mouth to say something- offer a rebuke perhaps, there’s no call for profanity- but the words don’t make it past the first syllable because Tendou kisses him instead.


----


The next time Wakatoshi goes to Tendou’s house to study, they spend most of the evening just lazing, with Wakatoshi’s head in Tendou’s lap.

“Hey, Wakatoshi-kun?” he says.

“Mm?”

“If I scratch your head long enough, do you think you’ll start to purr?”

“... Perhaps.”

i love these girls so much thank you for the prompts!

***

“You're so lucky, Shizuku-chan,” Chinatsu sighed as she changed into her practice clothes.

“How do you mean?” Shizuku started stretching. Chinatsu left the changing room and began to stretch as well.

“You're so talented, you know,” Chinatsu said. “Your following is amazing. So expressive. And you have a leader who cares about you. A real leader, I mean. Not like Tatara.” She wrinkled her nose, but the distaste she used to have when she talked about her leader wasn't there. They were getting along better. At least, they were for the moment.

“Kiyoharu and I have been partnered together since we were children,” Shizuku replied. “I know his dance.”

“You're so good, though; I heard you even could follow Tatara's lead!” Chinatsu shook her head at the thought, like it was ridiculous that someone like Shizuku could dance with someone like Tatara. As if one of the most startling moments of Shizuku's life was laughable.

“That was...a special occasion,” Shizuku replied. She tried not to think about the other time she'd partnered with someone who wasn't Kiyoharu-- the loss to Mako still stung.

“I didn't realize, before, how difficult following could be,” Chinatsu continued, leaning forward to place her forehead on the ground. “My old partner never let me follow, so I didn't know. I thought followers were all like dolls, and only the leader mattered.” She shot up, her face red. “I- I'm sorry! I didn't mean-”

“It's all right.” Shizuku smiled at Chinatsu, suddenly tired. “Lots of people think that. And scores are based on the leader, not the partner.”

“It's stupid,” Chinatsu said. “You can't dance without a partner, right? So partners should be evaluated for their own talent.” She stood.

“They are at the higher levels,” Shizuku reminded her. She wasn't sure why she said that. She agreed with Chinatsu. It would be nice if the judges saw her, really saw her, instead of just Kiyoharu. After all, she practiced just as hard. But it was safer the way things were. If their performance relied more on Kiyoharu rather than the both of them, then there was no need for her to feel as responsible if they lost.

But just because something was safe didn't mean it was right.

Chinatsu huffed and reached out a hand to pull Shizuku up.

“It's still stupid,” she said. “Although I guess I shouldn't be complaining, when I'm still so bad at following. Tatara is probably the only person who would accept a challenge like me. But Shizuku-chan, I wish everybody could see how beautiful your dance is.” Her cheeks were pink, and she looked away. It was charming, especially in a girl who seemed so sure of everything. Shizuku couldn't help smiling.

And then what Chinatsu said hit her. After all this time, she couldn't see what Shizuku saw-- that she was on her way to being a monster, to being a rival to Chiduru. Chinatsu thought Shizuku's dancing was beautiful (and it was, her pride insisted, it was beautiful. It's just that beauty wasn't enough), but couldn't see the strength and elegance in her own dance. True, when she and Tatara were off-balance, their dancing was a mess, but even that couldn't lessen Chinatsu's loveliness. And when they were in sync, Shizuku's heart raced.

How could Chinatsu not see it? She would soon be a true rival to Shizuku, and if she and Tatara ever found their balance, they would be a frightening pair.

“Thank you, Chii-chan,” Shizuku said. For all the things she wished she could improve on, to keep up with Kiyoharu and the monsters around her, she had never doubted her ability to hide her true feelings behind a smile.

“Sometimes I wish we could still dance in girl pairs after juniors,” said Chinatsu, half to herself. “I would have liked to dance with you properly.”

Shizuku thought about dancing with Chinatsu as her leader, that beautiful hair pulled back, her hands firm, her footsteps light. She thought about the two of them moving together as one. Winning competitions together.

Shizuku wasn't sure she would let Chinatsu follow, either. Maybe she was just as selfish as her old partner.

“Well, we can still dance in practice,” Shizuku replied, holding her arms out in a leader's hold. “Let's work on your following.”

Chinatsu smiled at her and got into position. Her back was strong under Shizuku's hand, and her hand was warm. Shizuku looked down at her, back arched gracefully, neck long and elegant. She thought about Chinatsu's dance, and Chiduru's. They'd both been leaders.

Maybe she would have let Chinatsu follow, after all.

i don't trust myself in a kitchen so pls don't mind me skimming over the details of how to bake a cake

***

“And then the eggs, Abe-kun.”

“Right.” Takaya reaches across the table and grabs the eggs. He holds one in each hand, carefully and hesitantly, turning back to Mihashi with uncertainty written all over his face.

Mihashi takes an egg from his hand and cracks it against the bowl with practiced grace. Takaya watches the egg yolk plop onto the cake mix they poured in previously. It looks disgusting. He doesn’t understand how that is supposed to turn into delicious cupcakes that will make his mother happy. He’s just listening to what Mihashi tells him to do.

It’s a strange experience, this role reversal.

Takaya follows Mihashi’s example, though his egg shell crack into more than a few pieces rather than Mihashi’s clean two halves. They dump out the shells and Takaya stands back as Mihashi checks the instructions. The kitchen is cleaner than he thought it would be. There’s flour on his shirt and probably in his hair, but that’s the worst of it. Baking isn’t exactly an activity he’d put at the top of any list, but Takaya finds that he doesn’t really mind it.

Mihashi certainly doesn’t mind it. He seems to thrive in this quiet environment, where it’s just the two of them and ingredients laid out on the table neatly. Takaya steers his thoughts away on how it’s just the two of them, studying the other boy as Mihashi moves around the counter, babbling about the next steps as he goes. His stance is looser. His expression still as lively as ever, but more relaxed. He talks more, stutters less. His hands are certain, but in an effortless way rather than the trained firmness when he’s on the mound.

Mihashi is comfortable in a kitchen, even though he’s left alone with Takaya. He volunteered to do this with Takaya. Mihashi is happy and at home in the kitchen and Takaya is absolutely captivated.

“Abe-kun?”

Mihashi is blinking at him expectantly. Takaya flounders for a moment, caught off guard. “Uh, sorry, what now?”

“We’re going to mix it! And then we’ll pour the batter into the pan, so when the oven is ready, we can put it in, and let it bake!”

“O-Okay. Cool.” Takaya resists the urge to smack himself in the face. Mihashi isn’t flinching away from him anymore, yet Takaya still finds it difficult to communicate properly. What is it about this boy that makes him forget how to freaking talk?

Mihashi lets him hold the electric mixer, and Takaya obediently keeps it steady for about a minute before he can feel the bowl start to slip, and batter flying upwards.

“Oh, frick,” he mutters, but Mihashi just calmly reaches over and switches the machine off.

“It’s okay!” Mihashi says. He hands him a towel. “It’s tricky!”

“Here, you can do it.”

Takaya wipes the batter off his arms. Some of it landed on his shirt, and he stares down at his chest in dismay. At least he had the sense to wear an old shirt of his. He glances back up, and kind of freezes.

The batter is on Mihashi, too. There’s flecks of it on the collar of his shirt, splattered on his cheeks and blending in with his freckles, scattered in his hair. Mihashi lifts a hand to wipe at his nose, and ends up with a streak of flour across his face. Takaya has never felt so ridiculously gay before.

Mihashi must have felt the weight of his gaze, because he turns, and meets Takaya’s gaze. He tilts his head, eyes wide, like a bird. “Abe-kun? Okay?”

“Yeah,” Takaya says. “Okay. Great. I’m—I’m great.”

“That’s good,” says Mihashi. He unplugs the mixer and proudly presents the bowl. “Time to pour in the batter. Want to try?”

Still feeling strangely like floating and way too warm in his chest, Takaya moves closer. He stares down at the bowl in his hands as Mihashi readies the cupcake pan. The goop looks soggy and sticky and sappy and sweet and it resonates greatly with Takaya’s current emotions.

When the batter is safely poured into the pan and placed into the oven, Takaya steps back. He watches Mihashi fuss over the timer. He looks down at his dirty hands. He’s having fun, he realizes.

“Abe-kun?”

Takaya looks up, finds Mihashi’s familiar hazel eyes. “There’s flour on your face.”

Mihashi goes cross-eyed at his words, before he blinks hard and shakes his head. Before Takaya can think it through, he’s reaching out, touching Mihashi’s face. The other boy stands still as Takaya brushes aside the batter and flour. Takaya tries hard not to linger on how soft Mihashi’s skin is.

He pulls back. “I hope the cakes turn out okay,” he says.

Mihashi nods, quickly and too many times, like he does. “Me, too!”

“Thanks for helping me, Mihashi.”

Mihashi beams at him, and Takaya is too far gone to care that he compares that smile to a sunrise breaking across his horizons.

He smiles back.

body swap fics are my life. also i'm kicking myself bc i just realized that i could have done a kimi no na wa au for this and i didn't and now i feel stupid

***

Of all the stupid ways something like this could have happened, getting hit in the back of the head by a volleyball was probably the worst.

Tanaka wasn't sure how, exactly, but by some crazy twist of fate, both he and Noya had managed to get hit by errant serves at the exact same moment. Then, by another even crazier twist of fate and possible twist of physics, those hits had resulted in him and his boyfriend switching bodies.

It didn't make any sense.

"Ryuu! How are you so tall?" Noya said in Tanaka's body, making weird faces in the mirror of the locker room. He kept puffing his chest out and measuring himself against the top edge of the mirror. "It's so unfair."

"I'm not that tall," Tanaka said. "I'm only 177 centimeters—Tsukishima is a whole ten centimeters taller than me."

Noya scowled at him through the mirror. It was weird, seeing his own face glaring at him. "You're tall, Ryuu. I'm almost twenty centimeters shorter than you—or well, I used to be." He grinned. "Now you're the short one."

"Ugh, don't remind me."

"Hey, being short isn't that bad!"

"Being short is fine for you. You're a libero. I'm a spiker," Tanaka complained. "How am I supposed to spike like this?"

"Hinata does it."

"But Hinata is a freak of nature."

"...Okay, that's fair," Noya conceded. He did another pose in the mirror, trying to imitate Tanaka's scary face and failing spectacularly. Tanaka laughed and joined him.

"No no no no, you gotta do it like this," he said, recreating the expression with Noya's face. It was actually sort of creepy, contorting Noya's face like this, but it illustrated the point well enough.

"Oh my god—that's so weird," Noya cackled. It still sounded like Noya's laugh, even coming from Tanaka's mouth. Tanaka made the face again and Noya laughed harder. "How do you even do that to my face? I didn't know I had the face muscles for that."

"Yeah, well, I didn't know you had a mole on your ass but—"

Noya shoved him, and Tanaka shoved back. When Noya shoved him again, he toppled over, taking Noya down with him.

"Oof!" Tanaka groaned. Why did his body have to be so heavy? "Ugh, Yuu, you're crushing my spleen—or, well, your spleen, I guess."

Noya propped himself up with his elbows, hitting Tanaka's ribs this time, and then settled over Tanaka's hips. "Would it be weird if I kissed you?" he asked. "It'd be weird, right?"

Tanaka shrugged on the floor. "I mean, I guess it would be weird. It'd just be like kissing yourself."

"Huh," Noya mumbled. He leaned down, hovering just above Tanaka's face. Then he placed a quick kiss on Tanaka's lips.

"That..." Tanaka started.

"That was weird," Noya said. "I was kissing my own face. That was weird."

Tanaka nodded. "Yeah, yeah. Let's... let's wait to do that again 'til we switch back?"

"Sounds good," Noya grinned. He got up off of Tanaka's lap and went to grab his stuff from his locker. "You wanna go back to my place tonight? I bet I can still beat you at Mario Kart, even in your body."

"Sure. Sounds good," Tanaka said. He got up off the gross locker room floor and followed Noya's lead, stuffing Noya's practice clothes into his bag. "Hey, I'll race you to the bus stop?"

Noya grinned. "You're on, shorty."

Noya won—but only barely. Tanaka blamed it on his short legs. It was fine, though—he'd totally beat Noya at Mario Kart later.
