Bonus Round 7: Recs

Bonus Round 7: Recs

You've created so much during this event, so here's a round to celebrate each other's achievements!

This round is CLOSED as of 7PM on August 24 EDT. Late fills may be posted, but they will not receive points.

  • Recommend at least three fanworks from main or bonus rounds. Your recommendations don’t have to be connected in any way, and you do not need permission to recommend a work.
  • Don't rec your own work. You can recommend things created by your own team, but please spread the love to other teams too.
  • Each recommendation must include at least two sentences explaining why that fanwork is awesome. Please use the format specified below.
  • You may recommend as many works as you like, as long as they are posted separately in groups of at least three.
  • There will be no prompts for this round. Simply post each fill/recommendation list as a comment in response to this post.
  • Remember to follow the general bonus round rules, outlined here.

Bonus round shenanigans all happen in the comments below. Brand-new works only, please.

Format your comment in the following way:

If FILLING (all teams):
  • Replace [YOUR SHIP] with the name of the team you belong to
  • Copy and paste the following form into a comment and fill it out. Delete things in brackets, and leave the HTML alone.

Posts not using this format will be understood to be unofficial discussion posts, regardless of what they contain. They, like all comments in this community, are subject to the code of conduct.

These numbers apply to your team as a whole, not each individual teammate. Make as many fills as you want!

For fills:

First 3 fills by any member of your team: 20 points each
Fills 4-10: 10 points each
Fills 11-20: 5 points each
Fills 21+: 2 points each

All scored content must be created new for this round.

If you're hunting through the prompts looking for what to fill, a good trick is to view top-level comments only.

Have a question? Check The FAQ first. If you still need help, feel free to contact the mods. Happy fanworking!

All of my recs are about to be horribly overkill for length because I COULDN'T STOP CRYING ABOUT STUFF I LOVE, hopefully I'll learn brevity as I go.

Theme: Kataoka/Oe Cross-Fandom Ship, feat. YAKUZA AU

Title: Yakuza Kataoka & Tattoo Artist Oe Art
Creator(s): [personal profile] luckycricket33
Rating: G
Major Tags: none
Why is this work awesome?: Mostly, because it's art for a weird cross-fandom AU which I adore with all my heart. But more than that, Sarah's art is incredibly cute and always has a lot of personality; Kana's marvel over Kataoka's back tattoo is really precious, and all the details are great. The tattoo evokes the hundred poems from Chihayafuru, and have I mentioned Kataoka's glasses? Kataoka with glasses is important to me.

Title: Yakuza Enforcer Kataoka & Tattoo Artist Oe
Creator(s): [personal profile] putsch
Rating: G

Why is this work awesome?: It's the actual most beautiful thing in existence? But no, seriously, this was everything I wanted out of "Kataoka is a young yakuza enforcer going to tattoo artist Oe (who's used to his kind coming through) for his first ink" and more. Their clever little conversation through poetry is full of so much warmth and intelligence and understanding, and the singular best part is Kataoka's insistence that the love poems Oe is choosing aren't for him, and her return of, "If you know both of them are love poems, maybe they are for you." It says so much about both characters in so little space and actually breaks my heart (with happiness) please, please read it, I beg of you.

Title: Oe's Romance With Yakuza Enforcer Kataoka
Creator(s): [personal profile] putsch
Rating: M
Major Tags: yakuza au, minor descriptions of violence, implied sexual situations, implied death
Why is this work awesome?: I love the clever way this fic is constructed, between its use of poetry, time, and the back-and-forth telling of both Oe's current trouble and her relationship with Kataoka as it begins and leads to that current point. The build of their relationship is conveyed slowly, gradually, through tiny little moments that are themselves like the cards Kataoka leaves for Oe: snapshots to be consumed in single bites. I love the way it uses the poem that includes Oe's namesake, and I love that even though it's very much a story about a relationship coming apart as much as it's one about a relationship coming together, it ends on what is arguably a hopeful note.
