Bonus Round 4: Quotes

Quotes


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


An oldie but a goodie—in this round, we draw inspiration from famous words said by other people.


Please read this whole post before commenting to ensure that your team gets the most points possible.

RULES
  • Submit prompts by commenting to this post with a quote attributed to a specific person or character, along with any ship/ot3/etc. from one of our nominated fandoms.
    • Example: "That which does not kill us makes us stronger." -Friedrich Nietzsche
    • The quote can come from almost anything—famous people, poetry, songs, books, movies, etc.— but please don't quote personal conversations you've had or overheard.
    • Your prompt MUST include some kind of relationship. Platonic relationships are indicated by an "&" between the names (e.g., Natsuo & Yuzuko). Non-platonic relationships use "/" (e.g., Natsuo/Yuzuko). Please don't say "Any pairing," either!
  • Fill prompts by replying to the prompt with your quote-inspired fanwork.
  • Remember to follow the general bonus round rules, outlined here.
  • Here is a prompt/fill index for your convenience.

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 each (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

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).

??? idk i haven't written eijun in so long, i tried.

***


there's a rush of wings and the bright glint of ryousuke's hair remerges from the mass of writhing shadows, the pale center of a dark flower. his blade is burned clean, gore evaporating in a curling wreath of white smoke. youichi's at his back, steady shotgun blast keeping whatever's left of the hive at bay as their queen falls. eijun swallows, heart lurching in his throat. he'd thought they were goners.

"god they're scary," he says, not sure if he means the tenma or their senior officers. beside him, haruichi laughs, half-hiccup, like he'd forgotten to breath for a bit. eijun knows the feeling.

"yeah," he says, a fierce pride in his tone that makes eijun turn to look at him. "they really are."

*

"you should really be more careful," jun says, arms crossed and looming over ryousuke by virtue of being the only one standing up.

"i'm fine," ryousuke says, dutifully holding his arm out to let youichi inspect the long, shallow cut curving across his shoulder. "tell him i'm fine, youichi."

"it's not that bad," youichi says, already dressing the wound with casual efficiency. they're used to this, eijun realizes from where he's huddled on the opposite side of the fire. he misses whatever else jun says while he tries to work out how often something like that has to happen for it to seem so comfortable, glancing up again in time to catch jun stomping off to his tent while muttering about terminal recklessness. "you really should be more careful though," youichi says, once jun's out of earshot, soft enough that eijun's positive that he's absolutely not supposed to hear it.

"don't you start scolding me too," ryousuke says, a lilt to his voice eijun doesn't recognize, softer than the mocking edge he's used to. he's got his face tilted up toward youichi's like he's expecting something.

"you know i worry," youichi says, touching the freshly tied bandage with gentle fingers. it's neater than eijun would have expected, from a rough guy like that.

ryousuke just hums and youichi seems to relent with a sigh, leaning down to... press his forehead against ryousuke's? there's something strangely tender about the hand he brings up to cradle ryousuke's jaw and eijun realizes with a start that they're kissing. oh, crap. he is definitely not supposed to be seeing this, so he squeezes his eyes shut, hopeful that it doesn't count because it's not like he meant to spy on them. he'd rather not be killed in his sleep over this.

"i'll be more careful," ryousuke says after the longest minute of eijun's life, and he didn't even know ryousuke could sound like that, soft and sincere and honestly kind of cute but eijun will never, ever admit thinking so because he values his life.

"let's go to bed," youichi says, and eijun holds his breath until their footsteps fade.

he sits up once he's sure they're gone, wriggling out of his bedroll and crawling over to where haruichi is sound asleep in his own kit. "haruichi," he stage whispers, shaking his friend as gently as he can manage. "haruichi, wake up. did you know?"

"what, eijun," haruichi says, yawning his into hands and trying to scoot away from eijun without actually getting out of his bed roll.

"did you know? about your brother and—"

"oh my god, eijun. yes, everyone knows, please go back to bed."

"but—"

"goodnight, eijun," haruichi says, and rolls over, pulling the flap of his bedroll firmly over his head.

"how does everyone know," eijun says, wailing as softly as he can manage, as he scuttles back over to his own bed. it's not actually very soft at all but it's warm out and not many people are camped around the central fire, leaving eijun to mull his crisis over by himself in the night.
