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/Miyuki Fic Fills, AKA THE CROSSOVER SHIP OF MY HEART!!!

Title: How We Land
Creator(s): [personal profile] outstretched
Rating: M
Major Tags: sexual content
Why is this work awesome?: Clover's writing is always a delight, for the care she takes with every phrase and every sentence, weaving them together into an even rhythm where nothing is wasted. This fic in particular is lovely for the way it uses sex as a vehicle for character study, focusing on the ways bodies interact to show how these two characters relate to each other, each very guarded, each not being entirely honest. (The title is from a P.O.S. song of the same name which is recommended listening along with the story, but also reminded me of the "you spit, I'mma sit, we'll see where we land" line from "Aaron Burr, Sir" in the Hamilton musical, which made Oikawa's line of I'm perfectly satisfied toward the end hit home with an extra punch for me.)

Title: Violinist Oikawa and Conductor Miyuki

Major Tags: kissing, suggestive content
Why is this work awesome?: I adore this fic for how quickly it gets going and how completely unwilling it is to relent. Right from the first sentence Oikawa and Miyuki are bickering about composers, and it's that dynamic that sets the tone for the whole story. Both Oikawa and Miyuki's characterization is a delight and the premise is exactly what I want to see with them: picking and prodding at each other, posturing but unwilling to give in. More than that, even in the small space of its telling there are a lot of great details; I love Oikawa's dedication, I love that he also plays piano, I love that Miyuki is interested in that. I would read so, so much more of this premise if I could.

Title: Oikawa Doesn't Kiss Miyuki
Creator(s): [personal profile] hqqt
Rating: E
Major Tags: explicit sexual content
Why is this work awesome?: This is the fic in which Oikawa is a third year catcher on the Seidou baseball team rather than a third year setter playing volleyball, Miyuki is his second year kouhai, and they are having a sexual relationship. I love it for the way it lays out their relationship and the ways they're very similar to each other, and for the current of power running between them. I love all of the little details about the sex that translate into details about their personality, and how Oikawa's evasiveness regarding kisses is just the biggest and best example. It's really nice as a character piece even more so than as a sexy piece, and I love that.
