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: Love Live Fic Fills, Honoka & Upperclassmen Edition

Title: A-RISE Talk to Tsubasa About Honoka
Creator(s): [personal profile] underscored
Rating: G
Major Tags: none
Why is this work awesome?: The thing I love best about this fill is that it shows the other side of the coin: so much of love live's focus is on mu's and that makes it really delightful to get A-RISE's perspective on anything. I love how patient Anju and Erena are with Tsubasa and I love seeing Tsubasa portrayed as a foil to Honoka. She's the same kind of bullheaded and stubborn, but more polished, more self-aware. And definitely willing to ride across Tokyo to win a girl's heart.

Title: Honoka and Nozomi, Cosmically

Why is this work awesome?: This story is lovely for the metaphor it spins out from start to finish, with Honoka as the sun, and Nozomi on a collision course with that too-bright, blinding star. There's a really nice poetry to the first paragraph, which is echoed in the final line in a really rewarding way. And it's great as a character study, painting a warm picture of Honoka as she's seen through Nozomi's eyes.

Title: Nico and Honoka Play The Crane Game

Why is this work awesome?: I love the Nico voice in this! As a character Nico is incredibly over-dramatic and prone to posturing, and the situation of Nico trying and trying to win a prize from an arcade game despite multiple failures showcases that side of her perfectly. I also love that Honoka had instant success with the game, but still stands by Nico's side until she's victorious; it's a really cute little fic all around.
