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: Oikawa-centric Crossover Ships (Fic Edition)

Title: Oikawa as Furuya's Senpai
Creator(s): [personal profile] hqqt
Rating: G
Major Tags: none
Why is this work awesome?: I love this fic first and foremost for Icie's Oikawa voice. It's a story very closely in his head, which means all of his assertions must be taken with a grain of salt: he's very much an unreliable narrator and I for one love those. Beyond that, I love the execution of the premise, I love both Oikawa and Furuya's characterization and the way that translates, for Furuya, from baseball into volleyball (wanting Oikawa to set for him, instead of Miyuki to catch for him? I'm so happy for that parallel). Despite his flaws, this is Oikawa in his element as the "good senpai" and it's a delight.

Title: Oikawa Investigates Whether Ryousuke is an Alien
Creator(s): [personal profile] hqqt
Rating: T
Major Tags: body horror, insects, sports injury (minor)
Why is this work awesome?: This is such a fun fic, with a neat structure which really brings things together. It's framed as an investigation depicted in Oikawa's notebook, with him listing off his reasons for suspecting Ryousuke is of alien origin and recalling the scenes in which he learned those things about Ryousuke. Icie's writing is snappy and tongue-in-cheek, with really delightful characterization of Oikawa as the peppy but dogged underclassman set on ferreting out Ryousuke's secret. Not to mention, the description of the final reveal is lovely (providing you like a little horror).

Title: Oikawa goes to Midorima's Rehab Clinic Rotation
Creator(s): [personal profile] chiharu
Rating: G
Major Tags: sports injury
Why is this work awesome?: This fic is an absolute delight for all of the detail Chiharu puts into the worldbuilding and the backstory of the characters. Her voice for Midorima, Oikawa, and Iwaizumi is so natural and it's that clever characterization that draws the reader in (Midorima's narrative using Oikawa and Iwaizumi's nicknames for each other! Before shifting as he learns their proper names!). I love the way she uses Aomine to frame Midorima's cautionary tale to Oikawa, and I love that Oikawa is receiving this tale, that someone is attempting to prevent him from ruining his knee before it becomes too bad to be fixed.
