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 10 (Fighting Each Other Edition)

Title: Veni Vidi Vici
Creator(s): [personal profile] kitaiichis
Rating: G
Major Tags: hunger games AU
Why is this work awesome?: This is a hunger games AU, and I as a person am not actually a fan of the hunger games books. This fic can definitely be enjoyed by someone with no knowledge of the series; it's beautiful for its efficacy as a character study, for how it portrays Oikawa (and his hard work, and his tenacity) in this different setting. There are lots of really great details hinting at a past between Oikawa and Kageyama that isn't quite brought on screen (tooru’s weaknesses, few though they may be, are not about to be broadcasted across the nation. not now, not ever. they certainly won’t be fed into tobio’s hungry hands. not now, not ever again.) and the last line in particular hits home with a great final punch.

Title: Copper and Salt
Creator(s): [personal profile] dynamite
Rating: T
Major Tags: minor violence, blood
Why is this work awesome?: For starters, Lin's prose just has a really nice rhythm and flow (Oikawa’s voice is light, like the arch of his feet, and the flex of his hands) which carries the prose along at an enjoyable pace, in contrast with the premise, which is a lot rougher. This is a fight club AU, where Oikawa is actually teaching Kageyama, albeit in a much more violent context. I love that Oikawa doesn't pull his punches but does want Kageyama to learn, I love his teasing, I especially love the innuendo at the end where Oikawa tells Kageyama he's allowed to watch, and doesn't say what.

Title: Oikage Gladiator AU
Creator(s): [personal profile] miyukitty
Rating: T
Major Tags: Blood, Violence (to the face), (mild) Mutilation, implied slavery
Why is this work awesome?: I adore this fic for how visceral and real it is; Miyu really did their research on the situation they wanted to put Oikawa and Kageyama into and that makes the prose shine. They're both gladiators, with a definite history together before fighting for Emperor Wakatoshi's approval, and the way this translates their rivalry and competition with each other into the new context is really good. Plus, Miyu writes a really great fight scene, the conflict in this fic is excellent (and the contrast between the actual fighting and the kissing-as-fighting is so good to my id).
