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: Oikage Fic Fills, Volume 4

Title: Oikage Proof of Genius
Creator(s): [personal profile] kazuyas
Rating: G
Major Tags: implied/near-violence: references the flashback from s1e22, where oikawa nearly hits tobio
Why is this work awesome?: This story is sold by the tone and the structure. It's Oikawa desperately grasping onto everything that he's built as a player in the face of someone who can finally challenge him, and that feeling of having the world pulled out from under you is conveyed perfectly through the rhythm of the sentences, building as the story works toward its end. Likewise, the Oikawa characterization is lovely, perfectly depicting how astute he is, how insightful, how hard of a worker, only for that to sometimes amount to nothing. It's really wonderful as a character study and such a rewarding read.

Title: Oikawa (Intends to) Ask For A Date

Why is this work awesome?: This fic is too cute. It's got a really fun narrative voice, snappy and tongue-in-cheek, sticking close in Oikawa's head as he talks himself through his visit to Karasuno to ask Kageyama out. The best part is definitely the little reversal when they get to that point, because it's the ending that really brought a smile to my face.

Title: Oikawa is 20, Kageyama is 15

Why is this work awesome?: This is such a lovely AU, condensed down into the most compact of packaging. The framing of the story is especially nice, focusing on the first meeting between college-aged Oikawa and middle school Kageyama but sandwiching it between the way things are in this timeline, and the way they could be moving forward. The prose is spare and crisp but what really makes it is the ending, the invocation of canon and the promise that in this timeline, maybe things are easier. Maybe Oikawa is purely a mentor, rather than a rival. It's a really nice what-if.
