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.

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).

to be real I know a tiny bit about herbs but if this isn't a very accurate portrayal of anything druidic, i'm sorry?

***

Otabek is slow to explain what is going on with him long after any reasonable person would have noticed. Yuri had always known there was something different about him, something electric, like if he leaned in close and took a deep breath there was a taste of something on the back of his tongue like the ozone of a lightning storm.

But once Otabek is living in St. Petersburg, the little things start to add up more quickly. Otabek refusing to share his metal water bottle, and when Yuri snitches it out of his bag while Otabek is on the ice and unscrews the cap, only the pungent scent of herbs hits his nose, not the alcohol he'd been expecting. The window of Otabek's apartment is always spilling over with a riot of herbs, even in the dead of winter when it's dark half the time and freezing cold all the time. Otabek always has a wreath of rosemary hung on his door, replacing it every two weeks without fail, and when Yuri reaches up to fish the spare key off the top of the door way, he finds a stick of cinnamon instead, fresh enough to smudge his fingers orange.

"Move in with me," Otabek murmurs into the curve of Yuri's neck, making the lightning Yuri tastes in the back of his throat spill all over his skin. Yuri says yes, yesyesyes, as fast as he can force the words past his lips, and then goes in mouthing them into Otabek's skin until both of them are too exhausted to move. They lie in Otabek's bed, sweat drying on their skin, watching the shadows on the ceiling of cars going by on the street.

"When I live here will you tell me all the stuff finally?" Yuri asks quietly. Otabek is drawing on his side with a fingertip, as he often does, in a way that Yuri knows is meant to seem idle but he's learned over time to feel the familiar touch of symbols that aren't Cyrillic or English.

"Stuff?" Otabek asks mildly.

"The stuff you won't tell me about." Otabek draws Yuri closer, kissing the space just behind his ear, his temple. "If I move in, you have to tell me."

"All right," Otabek whispers, and Yuri's blood sings.

The first night after Yuri's things are shoved in the closets and bookcase next to Otabek's, Yuri sits expectant on the floor across from Otabek and watches raptly as Otabek chalks a figure of complicated lines and runes on the hardwood. He lights the end of a bundle of sage with his lighter and then shakes it out so that the smoke wafts up, stinging Yuri's nose as Otabek hands it to him. Yuri doesn't understand any of it, the runes or the herbs Otabek grinds down with the mortar and pestle, but Otabek puts his palm flat on the hardwood and draws a flower straight up out of the hardwood, Yuri's mouth falling open along with the pink flower's delicate petals.

"It's a sweetpea," Otabek tells him. He looks faintly embarrassed, as if Yuri's caught him showing off. "It's for loyalty and devotion."

Yuri grins at Otabek so fiercely it hurts, and if the way he feels is some kind of spell Otabek cast on him, he doesn't care even a little. "Teach me everything."

***

Otabek's tattoos shows up just after he's home from the training camp, the outline of blossoms covering his shoulder and down his arms raw and red from appearing all at once. When he looks it up, they're plum blossoms, and Otabek has no idea what that's about.

"What brought it on?" Otabek's mother asks as she inspects it. Otabek can only shake his head, because he isn't sure. It sure wasn't love of ballet and he'd always thought his mark would have something to do with skating since it's the only thing in his head half the time. "Well, it's big enough," his mother tuts as she rubs aloe on it to soothe the heat of it. "You must have some spitfire of a soulmate out there somewhere."

Otabek bites his lip, wondering if whoever he's supposed to be connected to has a mark just as big, just as painful. He doesn't want to wish that on them, whoever they are, but he doesn't want to be alone either. He's heard horror stories about people who get their tattoo from a person who never gets one.

"Me?" Yuri says, shaking his head. "Nah, I haven't got mine yet. Why, do you? Lemme see?"

Otabek peels his T-shirt off and lets Yuri look all he wants, trying not to feel crushingly disappointed that Yuri didn't get his soul mark at the same time as him all those years ago. Maybe he doesn't understand anything, he sighs to himself, because in those whirlwind three days in Barcelona, he's convinced over and over again that Yuri is the one who caused the damn thing to appear in the first place. His heart aches when Yuri peels off his jacket during the skate they spent all night redoing and his skin is still pale and unmarked.

"Ugh," Yuri complains hours later, sprawled across Otabek's hotel bed. He keeps reaching back to scratch his shoulders and back, until he groans in frustration. "Can you get it? It's driving me crazy!"

He yanks off his T-shirt, and Otabek's breath catches at the angry red outlines of wings, the steppe eagle of Kazakhstan's flag stretched from shoulder to shoulder.

"Yuri," he gasps, tracing the outline with a finger.

"Oh my god," Yuri mutters, craning his neck to try and see. "What the HECK, Lilia is gonna FLIP HER SHIT, and…oh! Otabek, yours too?"

Otabek looks down and realizes that his mark is flushing bright with color, reds spreading over his skin, the same furious red as is spreading across Yuri's cheeks.
