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: Daiya Crossover Fics Which Fucked Me Up (in different ways)

Title: Miyuki Remembers Arakita's Pitching
Creator(s): [personal profile] krankran
Rating: G
Major Tags: none
Why is this work awesome?: This fic is great for being an alternate exploration of Miyuki's middle school baseball years which also fits seamlessly into canon. While it's told from Miyuki's perspective, detailing his middle school baseball experience as much as Arakita's, it's even more interesting as an account of Arakita's years in middle school baseball, when so little of that is shown in yowapeda's canon. My favorite thing about it is that it's such a tale of ships passing in the night: as often as Miyuki watches Arakita's games, or almost plays his team, he and Arakita meet only the once.

Title: Abe & Furuya as a Battery
Creator(s): [personal profile] athiefshome

Why is this work awesome?: The prose is gorgeous, giving the scene that plays out between Abe and Furuya just the right weight. It's full of so many clever, beautiful turns of phrase, and the rhythm of the sentences is so crisp and carefully composed. What I love best about it, though, is how intelligently it references both Abe and Furuya's backstories and the ways they rub at each other a little too roughly, sandpaper on places that haven't quite healed, without ever addressing the past straight out. This fic is really lovely as a character study and is so full of poignant emotion and great characterization, I cannot recommend it highly enough.

Title: Kise and Miyuki as Models
Creator(s): [personal profile] koushuu
Rating: E
Major Tags: sexual content, brief mention of cigarettes
Why is this work awesome?: I adore this story for all the careful posturing between Kise and Miyuki. It's an AU where they've clearly known each other (and worked together!) for some time, but where kissing and sex is something new for them, and a lot of the joy in reading it comes from picking apart just what sort of relationship they have with each other. All of the details are lovely, especially those pertaining to what they notice about each other, and the repetition of the dialogue "Why are you so nervous?" first from Kise, then thrown back to him later by Miyuki, was especially delightful.
