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, First Years Ships Edition

Title: Maki and Hanayo Experimental Kissing
Creator(s): [personal profile] kiyala
Rating: G
Major Tags: none
Why is this work awesome?: What I love about this fic is that while Hanayo is the narrator, she becomes this intimate mouthpiece for a character piece on Maki. I love seeing Maki through Hanayo's eyes, for her strengths as well as her weaknesses, and how those weaknesses are something Hanayo feels is entirely justified, in balancing the best parts of Maki. It's really gentle and sweet, with the kissing something the girls come to naturally, and is definitely the more enjoyable for that.

Title: Rin and Hanayo Have A Sleepover

Why is this work awesome?: This fic is just so much softness, depicting these two girls fumbling through their fondness for each other when Hanayo asks Rin, and only Rin, to sleep over with her. I personally really like that Maki is in the picture even when she's absent because she is very important to both her friends, and I love how overwhelmed Hanayo is by her feelings for Rin, it really endears me to her as the narrator. Plus there's the bit about Hanayo's mix tape for Rin, to round out the cuteness with something sweet and meaningful.

Title: Maki Graduates with Rin and Hanayo
Creator(s): [personal profile] rebuilt_from_love
Rating: G
Major Tags: angst, anxiety
Why is this work awesome?: This story does a great job capturing a feeling that's all too relateable to too many people — the uncertainty of moving forward after school, of dealing with change and beginning a new stage in one's life. Maki is the one struggling with going off to a university far away from her friends, but Rin and Hanayo are there to give her support. It really fits the tone of Love Live itself, a canon which is very about the nine members of mu's supporting and encouraging each other in their dreams.
