Bonus Round 2: Tic-Tac-Toe



Tic-Tac-Toe


This round is CLOSED as of 7PM EDT on 24 June. Late comments are screened and will not receive points.


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.

For fills:
First 4 fills by any member of your team: 20 points each
Fills 5-10: 15 points 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).

I just couldn't resist with just how catchy this song is... ❤️

***


‘I'm in love with the shape of you
We push and pull like a magnet do…’



Hands digging into a sharp pair of hip bones, Youichi lord the way they cursed and flexed perfectly under his fingers. His eyes were always drawn automatically to seek them out whenever they were on the field together; a solid number ‘4’ permanently having his undivided attention.

Sometimes Youichi would even be caught looking, Ryousuke throwing a sly ‘all-too-knowing’ smirk over his shoulder stopping him (always) in his tracks.


‘Although my heart is falling too
I'm in love with your body…’



“What has you so distracted Kuramochi?” Words easily leaving chapped lips Youichi craved to touch, Ryousuke throwing out a damned hip because he was far too perceptive for his own good.

“I think you know perfectly well Ryou-san, and I intend to take care of it later,” Youichi’s fear melting to confidence with Ryousuke’s blush he tried to hide before giving in.

“Make sure you do Kuramochi, wouldn't want it affecting your play on the field.”

But it was far too late for that… Too late for the touches he tried to mask while checking Ryousuke’s uniform for tears and dirt streaks. Even the simple of brush of skin opening a water bottle before extending it to a set of outstretched fingers caused a curl of want to bloom in his belly, barely able to hide his blush from Ryousuke’s too keen eyes every time they crossed paths during practice.


‘And last night you were in my room
And now my bedsheets smell like you…’



Distraction the common theme until it was almost the end of practice, Youichi stealing away to the dugout to grab his bat before retreating the cages for a few hours. Noticing, as always, Ryousuke’s open gear bag right beside his, finding the second-baseman’s iPod hidden within his shirt near the top before changing it to their favorite song – an indication for later to keep the door unlocked for an intended visit.

Memories from prior nights spent pressed up against one another, tangled limbs and sweat-slick skin as they shared a set of headphones. A bud in each of their ears as they relaxed to favorite songs, laughing over cheesy lyrics, and making faces at the heavier riffs… Youichi not forcing back the smile curling against his lips with his thoughts.

Youichi humming the lyrics as he hid the device once again, craving the feeling of hip bones against his skin.


‘Every day discovering something brand new
I'm in love with your body’

Oh unrequited feelings... (Youichi needs to solve that ;)

***

It was still far too muggy and sweltering after afternoon practice, the cool spring breeze already fading to the threat of days filled with the intense Tokyo sun making not even a promise to shift to the threat of rain anytime soon. Youichi already opening his dirt-streaked practice jersey to fan his overheated skin, sweat sticking in all the wrong places as he tried anything to cool down in the shade.

Gaze focusing on a figure in the distance with his own jersey already discarded, tight practice shirt curving around a deceptive build of solid muscle in such a short stature that had Youichi helplessly distracted… until an all too familiar peel of laughter made Youichi’s face curl into a snarl of pure annoyance.

“When are you going to stop staring from a distance and make your move Kuramochi? He might bite, heck he may even kill you, but knowing you I think you're into that anyways…” Miyuki’s laughter continuing as Youichi tried to interrupt.

“Worst thing he can do is kill me, but then at least I won't have to deal with your face…” Youichi avoiding a well-meaning pinch to the ribs as he evaded the sneaky catcher.

“Then I'll have to get used to new shortstop, and that's troublesome for me- so let me do something to help spur those actions along a little bit."

Miyuki leading Youichi to the vending machine before dropping in a few 100 yen coins, the satisfying sound causing him to slightly panic with Miyuki’s intentions. Watching as Miyuki selected two drinks before handing them off to Youichi, dropping one more set of coins to grab and open his own coffee drink, the catcher turning to address Youichi once again.

“Use these wisely young grasshopper-“ Miyuki backing away from Youichi’s heated glare.

“Who are you calling-“

“Wise? I tend to agree with only the two of you standing here,” Youichi frozen at Ryousuke’s words until a set of callused hands reached out towards one of the drinks. “Aww my favorite! Is this to make up for all of your horrible errors on the field today?” Ryousuke’s expression turning more serious the longer Youichi hesitated handing over the cold can in his hand, “Care to share what's troubling you Kuramochi?”

Youichi cursing Miyuki under his breath as the catcher snuck away. Unable to escape from baring the truth himself or facing it leaking out accidentally. His hands feeling as cool and clammy as the condensation on the outside of the can he was clutching for dear life, handing over the beverage to his inquisitive audience. Ryousuke’s eyes shinning with mischief almost as if he was urging Youichi on in his own way to let him on the truth.

“Get in this fucking car before I pull away and leave you here Youichi!” Tires barely coming to a stop before the door was opened into his face, handle almost reachable before he was jumping for the seat. Bag cradled safely against his shoulder as Ryousuke pulled away from the curb.

Youichi registered the sound of gunshots, the ricochet loud off the cement over the squeal of their car tires as Ryousuke pulled away. He knew Ryousuke would get them away safely from anything. Breaking in, stealing the target would be the hardest part of the whole heist and as long as he made it back safely to the car everything was going to be alright – somehow it would be okay. Ryousuke would make it okay.

“You were able to retrieve it okay? No issues getting out?”

He wanted to hint at the truth, the wetness Youichi could feel seeping deeper into his chest, muscle, and bone, but not wanting to be a distraction as they escaped. Youichi still enamoured with the shimmer of the facets from the diamond he had managed to sneak away – the cut reflecting the pool of blood on the floor before it was snatched away from its perch into his careful hands.

The hours they had spent carefully planning his break in and escape, watching over the patterns of the guards to learn their weaknesses and the exact period of time Youichi would have to safely slip in or out… but they had missed one critical part of the equation. That critical fraction coming into play with the extra guard on duty that night, and the extra pistol on his hip that Youichi didn't have time to catch let alone dodge.

A flash of silver before nothing but a curling pain hitting Youichi squarely in the gut, adrenaline driving him to succeed… to not let his partner down in vain.

City lights beginning to blur as Ryousuke managed to out-maneuver their pursuers, the blar of sirens only a low hum in the distance as they drew further and further away. The heat from the vents crawling along his skin like fire as all Youichi’s senses began to blend into one.

The cry of Ryousuke’s voice not even enough to keep him away from the darkness crawling at his vision, until he was overwhelmed completely. Craving (and hoping) to feel Ryousuke’s touch one last time, even if it was just to call him ‘an idiot’ in the process.
