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!

Theme: Crossover Fic Fills, Awesome Ladies Edition

Title: Karuta Fan Kataoka & Reader Oe
Creator(s): [personal profile] kiyala
Rating: G
Major Tags: none
Why is this work awesome?: Kataoka is the classical Japanese lit teacher. Oe loves traditional poetry more than anything. What I wanted to see was the love both these characters have for the power of words and poetry and Kii delivers that perfectly, with crisp, deliberate prose which is a joy to read. The best part is absolutely the characterization; both Kataoka and Oe are reserved, dignified characters, written with a warmth that shines through their respectful attitudes.

Title: Rei & Momoe Drinking Buddies

Rating: PG

Why is this work awesome?: The best thing about this fic is the setup. It positions Rei and Momoe as scouts, besides Momoe coaching, with Rei constantly snatching Momoe's potential players. I love that this allows them to bond over the thing they both love best — baseball, and the stupid antics of the teenage boys that play it. Coupled with Sisi's easy, smooth narration, this makes for a really fun fic. Not to mention the subtle reference to Kataoka in their conversation; that was surely just for me.

Title: Oe Sends Umi Kimono
Creator(s): [personal profile] iwaizumemes
Rating: G
Major Tags: none
Why is this work awesome?: I love this fic for all of the implied history between Oe and Umi. It's full of a lot of great little details, like Umi's habits practicing her archery, and her awareness of Oe's habits when she's packaging kimono at the family store. The gift she sends along with kimono for Umi's family is a karuta card, and the choice in poem written onto it makes my heart swell with such fondness for how it likewise hints at a larger relationship beyond this little snapshot we're allowed to see.
