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, Eli Ships Edition

Title: Honoka Meets A-Rise's Ayase Eli
Creator(s): [personal profile] underscored
Rating: T
Major Tags: none
Why is this work awesome?: The absolute best thing about this fic is Wei's Eli voice. She's poised, composed, and utterly confident, assured of her abilities and less than impressed with Honoka's efforts. She fits perfectly into the alternate universe presented here, a world where Eli is the leader of A-Rise, and Tsubasa is the ninth member of mu's. The tension between Eli and Honoka is believable and compelling, and all the little details in the story shine. The note it ends on — Honoka's "make me" — nicely wraps things up and evokes the future trajectory of their rivalry, while also making me wish I could read more.

Title: NozoEliUmi Romeo and Juliet
Creator(s): [personal profile] parasolghost
Rating: G

Why is this work awesome?: I really love the premise of this AU, established Nozomi/Eli where they're from two warring houses, and loyal servant Umi who has no choice but to assist her mistress Eli in her endeavors. Umi's banter with Eli is really charming, and the way Nozomi and Eli's situation is revealed as the story unfolds is a lot of fun. My absolute favorite part, though, is NozoEli inviting Umi to join them, and the fact that even though Umi is dying, she does consider their offer.

Title: Eli/Umi FFTA AU
Creator(s): [personal profile] luckycricket33
Rating: T
Major Tags: descriptions of violence, harsh mentoring and belittlement
Why is this work awesome?: I adore everything about this fic and the way it portrays this beautiful mentor and student relationship between Eli and Umi which could only exist in an AU like final fantasy. All of the details are lovely and insightful and carefully-chosen, demonstrating both a fluency with the FFTA world and a knowledge of the love live characters, for the way those details reveal things about their personalities. I love that Eli is a healer but she's training Umi to be an assassin, I love that she's a harsh teacher but that the kindness that exists underneath that is undeniable because it's intrinsic to who she is. I love the details about how the magic smells to each of them, and I especially love the ending, where Umi proves that she's learned just the lesson Eli was trying to teach her.
