Technically this is also a little late, and I really won't mind if any and all activity carries past October 4th.
To celebrate the wonderful thing that is the bond of one Nakamaru Yuichi and Ueda Tatsuya, who have been giving us joy and shipping material for years now, I challenge you!
Comment to this post and spam pictures, give me your feelings, write fics, post fic ideas and prompts, answer those prompts, share your doujinshi, look for couple clothes, share conspiratorial theories, flail and cry on my shoulder because Ueda and Nakamaru will both be 30 in a month and they still look younger than you, give me reasons why I (I mean everyone) should ship them (more), invite your friends, have a party!
Anything goes, this post stays public, let's have fun! Let's have an awesome MaruDa month. (The idea was not mine, but I sure hope Levy and Seki forgive me for stealing it).
I promise to make a master post of things in comments so people do not have to look for it.
Need a little incentive?
Maruda and dress shirts, and ties, and more ties (and you know other polka dot men apparel), and in leather jackets, and Ueda making Nakamaru's PV that much better, and Nakamaru telling you who really uses the whip in this relationship. And have MaruDa reminding you just how long they have been the perfection they are. Even if their radio made of awesome (and the related regular couple shoots) is no longer.
Have MaruDa serenading you because of course Nakamaru takes Ueda with him to his SCP performance.
Enjoy them pimping each other's acting work in an interview or watch them discuss hairstyles like it's serious business.
And top it off with some lovely meta that makes you melt.
Now it's your turn, I will encourage all and every notion of affection. Spread the word, have some fun.
Shiny things to be found in comments:
Suits and ties (with a little written bonus)
another collection of fanart, omg so much awesome
Don't Make Me Come Back There. I Beg You

Threads where you can request something to be written do you by a specific author:
Levy's drabble thread
Alex' prompt me thread
Ri's "find-me-something-i-want-to-write" request thread
!You can always leave random prompts and story ideas, things you have always wanted to see written about them in general comments and maybe some good fairy will pick it up. This is not limited to requesting from people who specifically offered to write. And of course you can pick any of the prompts and write something for it too ....
